In August, Elon Musk had tweeted plans to take Tesla private which caused the firm’s stock price to briefly spike. This led to fraud charges being brought against him by the US Securities and Exchange Commission, which were settled in September. Part of the settlement involves Tesla’s board putting additional controls and procedures to oversee Musk’s communication. But this was in effect only after 90 days after signing it, giving Mr. Musk free reign o Twitter for at least another couple of months.
Caroline Wozniacki is the first female athlete to sign a deal with Cryptocurrency exchange GCOX. The launch is scheduled for the first quarter of 2019. To purchase the celebrity tokens, the buyer must first acquire GCOX’s own token called ACM (The ACCLAIM token).
BItcoin: In the knee-jerk reaction to the launch, crypto markets were initially propelled to new heights in a sudden spike in the digital asset’s value. But this momentum slowed down and prices started to fall, stabilizing cryptos across the board. As stablecoins provide an exceedingly viable product for crypto-based transactions, questions remain around the level of decentralization.

Nuvoo, the largest crypto ecosystem mining company in Canada, is now taking giant strides towards emerging as the world’s leading platform for convenient and profitable cryptocurrency mining. The company has just released a new bitcoin contract that will completely change the game for the industry, with a month-to-month concept based on a 24-month payment for an open-ended contract.
October 16, 2018
As one of the world’s most trusted crypto mining companies, Nuvoo proudly announces the release of a new bitcoin contract that promises to have a significant impact in the global crypto space. With these new contracts, backed by the latest ASIC technology, Nuvoo has already started offering a low pricing structure to challenge the likes of Genesis, Hashflare, and other competitors. Nuvoo is pleased to say that their Bitcoin mining rates are currently 50% cheaper, including a lower maintenance fee, compared to Genesis Mining.
With the launch of this new contract, Nuvoo becomes the first company ever to offer customers the benefit of making payments in up to 24 installments. For example, someone purchasing a $3000 contract from Nuvoo will enjoy the privilege of paying just $125 each month, spread out over 24 months. This creates an opportunity for Nuvoo customers to get larger contracts for lower monthly payments, and it allows the market to grow in a major way.
With a bitcoin mining system that is ideally suited for beginners, Nuvoo offers a smart and easy way for crypto hobbyists to take their first steps into the crypto world. At the same time, their system has been used to great effect by crypto experts and entrepreneurs to operate large-scale mining farms. As part of their rapid diversification drive, Nuvoo will soon be launching their own cryptocurrency exchange.
“We have the most advanced platform to manage cloud mining activity with the most efficient affiliate plan. The time has come for the world to know that Nuvoo is a far more stable crypto mining platform compared to Genesis, tipped by many to be the world’s largest cloud mining company,” said Mr. LeBlanc, the Founder and CEO, Nuvoo. “Now, with our new bitcoin contract in place, our pricing is around 50% less than the price of Genesis mining and the maintenance fee is lower than any competitors’ as a Canadian mining farm.”
Leveraging the excellent infrastructure and favorable climate in Quebec, Canada, Nuvoo currently owns and operates more than ten world-class datacenters catering to thousands of customers around the world. Crypto enthusiasts have put their trust on Nuvoo because they offer one of the safest and most transparent ecosystems for crypto miners. In order to provide the best contract prices to customers, they never make any profit on mining equipment. The customers buy fixed Hashpower contracts, provided directly from one of the largest state-of-the-art ASIC mining farms owned and operated by Nuvoo.
Unlike other competitors, Nuvoo emphasizes lower mining costs and the use of greener energy. This is possible because a high percentage of electricity in Quebec is generated from hydroelectric dams. The cooling costs are also lower because the region remains significantly cold for a considerable part of the year.
Nuvoo attributes their strong position in the market to the company’s special relationship with energy providers and several municipalities in Quebec, all of whom are key players in managing the generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity in the province. In January of this year, Nuvoo was invited to a special event presented by Hydro-Quebec, as a guest panelist in order to represent the blockchain community.
Bitcoin mining contracts from Nuvoo are open-ended, and payouts are generated on a daily basis with the withdrawal limit set at 0.0020 BTC. To provide miners with an idea of the earning potential of each mining plan, there is also an efficient mining calculator on the company’s website provided by Cryptocompare, a neutral third party.
Nuvoo and its parent company are about to launch their own exchange, featuring both fiat-to-crypto and crypto-to-crypto solutions. The company is very excited to finally provide a safe trading ecosystem to their clients.
About Nuvoo: Nuvoo is a cryptocurrency mining powerhouse that focuses on offering cost-effective solutions to cryptocurrency hobbyists and professionals alike. Their philosophy is to enroll the top leaders in the cryptocurrency industry and to make them available to the community. The company specializes in hosting high-density computer hardware requiring substantial access to both power and cooling.

TALLINN, Estonia – Crypto mining powerhouse minerstat is excited to announce its comprehensive relaunch, marking a shift in the company’s offerings. They are now proud to offer enterprise-level specialized services aimed at empowering professional-level mining managers—that is, experienced clients who recognize that crypto mining is fast maturing into a highly-competitive industry that warrants sophisticated tools and support. With a carefully-considered redesign of its web portal and software offerings across the board, minerstat is poised to deliver robust and flexible crypto mining solutions at the enterprise level.
Crypto mining is a complex and demanding business, and minerstat is proud to offer sophisticated services to streamline, monitor and manage the mining process. With this in mind, the company developed its relaunched platform in close collaboration with mining managers in order to deliver functional and empowering solutions. The centrepiece of the relaunch is minerstat’s complete revamping of its suite of tools, including its online dashboard. The details of the update include:
“Crypto mining is hastily maturing to the enterprise level and for managing mining operation you won’t only need a great software, but also a skilled mining manager,” minerstat CEO George K. said. “I believe minerstat will play its role in this transformation.”
While minerstat offers basic mining tools such as worker monitoring and managing, remote reboot and restart, detailed statistics, and an alerting system, it also offers a suite of additional features that make the complex daily demands of crypto mining simple, elegant and easier to manage than ever.
A few examples:
The future of mining
Looking ahead, minerstat’s long-term plan is to establish a full-scale mining ecosystem beyond its current platform, with support for a wide range of mining software, pools and data to make mining managers’ job easier and more efficient.
With this vision in mind and its comprehensive and sophisticated updates ready for action, minerstat is poised to become the number-one enterprise-level SaaS platform for mining management by January 2019.
Founded in December 2016, minerstat was the first publicly available system to use fully remote managing techniques while keeping mining rigs secure and safe.
They are now on a mission to keep delivering a secure, advanced and reliable software suite for crypto mining management and monitoring, and to retain their position as trusted leaders in the emerging mining industry.
Token holders can transact all cryptocurrencies on single exchange and reap passive income benefits from staking
London, UK, 10/17/2018 With its launch on November 30, BITTO [https://www.bitto.tech/] will be the first public cryptocurrency exchange to validate crypto transactions using the Proof of Stake protocol to offer its customers passive income from staking.
The current means of validating most cryptocurrency transactions is through mining, or Proof of Work. “Industry dialogue on Proof of Stake (POS) vs. Proof of Work is clear on the advantages of POS,” says Nic Chin, Co-Founder & CEO of BITTO Exchange. “POS is a far more sustainable and cost-efficient approach compared to the computationally-intense Proof of Work that requires enormous electric power and specialist processing.”
BITTO is designed to provide customers a secure system for all their cryptocurrency transactions, along with a unique opportunity to acquire a share in the vital infrastructure which underpins the emergent cryptocurrency industry.
In less than five years, the variety of cryptocurrencies offered to investors increased from 40 to 1,2732 – a 3,083 per cent increase. “Owning a part of the exchange infrastructure will enable our customers to benefit from this growth without assuming risks of any individual coin,” states Chin. “BITTO customers can earn passive income from staking with only a computer and a Ethereum based cryptocurrency wallet.”
The BITTO token is the primary value transfer medium for users in the BITTO community. Tokens can be purchased now at http://www.bittoexchange.com/ to receive pre-launch benefits. Token holders can start to receive passive income from staking as of the September 18th 2018.
About BITTO: On the BITTO exchange users can buy, sell or trade any cryptocurrency through a single point of access. The exchange offers a convenient user-centric platform that includes staking, signal trading, a referral program, smart trading, ICO discounted rates, safe security for trading and deposits in local currencies.

17th of October 2018 – OXFORD, UK and GENEVA, SWITZERLAND: Coinschedule, the British blockchain portal, and Trecento Blockchain Capital, an asset management company, have announced today the launch of a joint investment fund called “Coinschedule Trecento BC Fund”, which will invest in early stage blockchain companies including token offerings and equity-based deals.
Coinschedule was founded in 2016 by two blockchain early adopters. With the help of scientists from the University of Oxford, Coinschedule has developed a unique algorithm called Coinschedule TrustScore. TrustScore is able to assign a credibility score to each blockchain project based on dozens of data points.
The company found that blockchain projects that score highly with the TrustScore algorithm tend to perform better in the long run.
The joint fund will use this information together with Coinschedule’s blockchain expertise to help select the best potential investment projects. Trecento Blockchain Capital’s team will then assess the opportunity making the decision to invest.
Launched in 2018, Trecento Blockchain Capital is an asset management company fully dedicated to Blockchain investing. The company is part of the Trecento Group, founded in 2012 by Alice Lhabouz, that already owns Trecento Asset Management (managing circa $200 million on behalf on institutional investors). It is formed by a team of investment professionals and experts in technology and blockchain. Trecento Blockchain Capital’s aim is to generate significant returns for their investors by investing in the best blockchain projects with a long-term view, within a compliant and regulated legal framework.
“We are very excited to partner with such a young yet successful team that can bring all their expertise and best practices from the traditional financial markets into the blockchain world”, said Alex Buelau, CEO of Coinschedule.
Alice Lhabouz, founder at Trecento Blockchain Capital, said “We are looking forward to help fund incredible blockchain projects at a time where many promising teams are finding it hard to raise capital. Partnering with Coinschedule will enable us to find the needle in the haystack of blockchain projects.”
This fund has the ambition to provide institutional investors, eager to benefit from the amazing blockchain business opportunities, with a regulated and professional investment fund.
The two companies are working closely together and the Coinschedule Trecento BC Fund will be launched in the coming weeks alongside with a new fund tracking section on the Coinschedule Portal.

The South Korea exchange Bithumb has launched its own decentralized Cryptocurrency exchange. This new venture will be based on Ethereum Blockchain and will be using One Root’s R1 protocol as a core part of the exchange. The Tokens which are based on Ethereum technology will be only offered. There will not be any fee on transactions.
Roubini stated that blockchain is nothing more than a glorified spreadsheet. He feels that this distributed ledger software is underpinning all cryptocurrency as the most overhyped and least useful technology in human history. The technology lying underneath crypto is now alleged to solve all global problems. Despite the stable trading, there have been warnings the cryptocurrency could be set to experience a sudden further fall in value.
