Get Ready! Hardware Wallets Are Coming To Exodus – The Full Exodus Wallet Roadmap

Get Ready! Hardware Wallets Are Coming To Exodus – The Full Exodus Wallet Roadmap

Exodus is easily one of our favorite Bitcoin and cryptocurrency wallets. The UI is amazing, you can store a multitude of different blockchain tokens and there is a built in exchange tool.

AND EXODUS LETS YOU CONTROL YOUR PRIVATE KEYS 👍

Currently Exodus supports Aragon, Augur, BAT, Bitcoin, Civic, Decred, Dash, EOS, Ethereum, Gnosis, Golem, Litecoin, OmiseGo, Qtum and SALT.

And now It has been confirmed! Hardware wallets will be available for Exodus!

“The Exodus team is very keen to add hardware wallet support (e.g. Trezor, KeepKey, Ledger Nano). I can also tell you that personally JP and I both want hardware wallet support ASAP… We also have heard from a number of high-net worth investors this is the ideal platform with the added hardware auth.

We can likely expect support for hardware wallets on Exodus sometime in 2018. The roadmap below has all the details on what Exodus plans to work on.

Future Roadmap

Feature Status Details
SEGWIT developing Support for Bitcoin SegWit transactions, currently under development, will reduce transaction fees.
Ripple developing
NEO developing
Monero 2017 Monero remains on the Exodus roadmap and we are excited to include this asset. Unfortunately, the UI/UX of Monero remains difficult and is still not ideal. Today novice users continue have difficulty with transaction notifications from the current beta GUI wallet from the Monero core team. Because Exodus does personal one-on-one support for each Exodus user we feel including Monero too early would cause a massive support burdon and confuse casual digital asset enthusiasts. Good news is we are getting closer and we do expect Monero to be included in 2017. Although pros and technical users may like bleeding edge technology, until Monero is rock solid, tested and “dog-fooded” internally Exodus will not release Monero until it is ready for “normal” (non-technical) digital asset consumers. Exodus posted an update on Reddit regarding the history and details on XMR integration (Jan 31, 2017).
ICONOMI 2017 Iconomi is an ERC20 token and expected to be released in 2017
Omni 2018 Likely in 2018. Omni, Maid, Tether all fall in the same body of work for Exodus
Maidsafe 2018 Maid is an Omni token and was expected to be released in 2017, but now delayed until 2018. These assets are built on the Bitcoin blockchain and will be contingent on the hard fork outcome in Q4 2017.
Tether 2018 Tether is an Omni token was expected to be released in 2017, but now delayed until 2018. These assets are built on the Bitcoin blockchain and will be contingent on the hard fork outcome in Q4 2017. We are most excited about Tether because of the ability to have a stable peg inside of the Exodus environment.
2FA planned 2-factor authentication support is on the roadmap, this is likely to precede Hardware Wallet Support
HARDWARE WALLET planned The Exodus team is very keen to add hardware wallet support (e.g. Trezor, KeepKey, Ledger Nano). I can also tell you that personally JP and I both want hardware wallet support ASAP… We also have heard from a number of high-net worth investors this is the ideal platform with the added hardware auth.
. .
Siacoin evaluating Exodus is intrigued with Sia but have not looked the tech to see what the options are.
SingularDTV evaluating SingularDTV is an ERC20 token.
TenX evaluating
Zcash evaluating If the Zcash network remains stable and has continual upgrades it is likely we will support this asset in 2017.

Monero Is Now The Only 100% Anonymous Cryptocurrency

Monero Is Now The Only 100% Anonymous Cryptocurrency

A new blockchain analysis firm has released surprising news about Dash and ZCash. There is only one true anonymous cryptocurrency on the market at this time, and it is Monero.

BlockSci, a new blockchain analysis firm, has successfully traced transaction from beginning to end on both DASH and ZCash. This is bad news for these blockchain projects as their biggest focus and value add is anonymity. Now this is technically gone.

The good news is that they were not able to trace transactions on Monereo. Monereo’s level of anonymity and obfuscation is still impenetrable.

MONERO Is Still 100% Anonymous. 👍

From themerkle.com:

Criminals flocking to other cryptocurrencies may want to think twice about those as well. As BlockSci’s whitepaper explains, there are very few cryptocurrencies which have eluded their scrutiny. One of those currencies is Monero, as it provides a degree of anonymity and obfuscation the group has not been able to crack just yet. Monero is officially labeled an “unsupported blockchain due to it not following the one-input one-output paradigm.” That is an interesting point which shows how Monero may be the only cryptocurrency providing full privacy and anonymity right now.

Some people may wonder how Monero is any different from Dash or even ZCash in this regard. While it is true the latter two cryptocurrencies have focused on privacy and anonymity to a degree, their implementations are far from perfect. BlockSci describes how they successfully traced both ZCash and Dash transactions from beginning to end, regardless of features like PrivateSend. This is anything but good news for people who value these currencies for their privacy or anonymity features.

In reality Dash and ZCash user don’t have to worry much. It would be expensive to hire a blockchain analysis consultant to track transactions on these privacy centered blockchains. Just know it can happen.

We still think Dash and ZCash are great. Even if transactions can be traced, it’s still a blockchain asset protected by cryptography. No one can take your crypto assets without your private key.

STEEM Launches Smart Media Tokens

STEEM Launches Smart Media Tokens

Steemit just released some very exciting news! Anyone can now launch a blockchain token on the STEEM blockchain using what is called SMTs or Smart Media Tokens.

Blockchain tokenization is becoming extremely popular with the rise of ICOs or Initial Coin offerings on Ethereum like the ERC-20 tokens and on BitShares with User Issued Assets.

Now Steem joins the world market for user created blockchain tokens, but with some unique features. Smart Media Tokens utilize a Proof of Brain algorithm by which the cryptocurrency is distributed. This simply describes the upvoting and payout structure for a system like Steemit. Now anyone can create a token for their content based project, just like Steemit.

 

From the Whitepaper:

Steem’s Smart Media Tokens (SMTs) give anyone the power to launch and sell Proof-ofBrain[1] tokens, which are tokens distributed by “upvote” and “like”-based algorithms
and can be integrated with websites to align incentives and spur growth, while websites are
empowered to adopt sustainable, currency-centric revenue models. This model has been
tested and continues to be proven by steemit.com, busy.org, chainbb.com, dsound.audio,
dtube.video and other Steem interfaces, which are monetizing content, tokens and media
in a way never before seen. Source: smt.steem.io

The possibilities are vast with this development. ANY PERSON can now launch their own crypto on STEEM wich has NO FEES! That is huge. Established brands, new brands, even a competitor like Reddit could utilize SMTs for their content.

*It is important to remember that growth of SMTs will lead to more transactions on the STEEM blockchain and demand for the STEEM Crypto assets. This is great news for holders of STEEM and STEEM Power.

 

The News via Ned Scott – CEO, Steemit Inc:

How Smart Media Tokens Work: An Animated Explanation

Shoutout to @dougkarr for creating the video! Way to go! 👍

Steem STMs are similar to “User-Issued Assets” which can be created on the BitShares DEX. Both BitShares and Steem blockchains utilize Graphene 2.0 technology for cryptographically secure decentralized ledgers.

Graphene Technical Documentation

User-Issued Assets on BitShares Decentralized Exchange:

bitshares accepted here

The BitShares platform provides a feature known as “user-issued assets” to help facilitate profitable business models for certain types of services. The term refers to a type of custom token registered on the platform, which users can hold and trade within certain restrictions. The creator of such an asset publically names, describes, and distributes its tokens, and can specify customized requirements, such as an approved whitelist of accounts permitted to hold the tokens, or the associated trading and transfer fees.

Lingerie Tycoon Begins Selling Dubai Apartments For Bitcoin

Lingerie Tycoon Begins Selling Dubai Apartments For Bitcoin

Lingerie tycoon Michelle Mone has fearlessly jumped into the Bitcoin world with her new venture of selling Dubai apartments for Bitcoin.

Michelle Mone, also known as Baroness Mone of Mayfair, is a millionaire who is looking to cash in on the rising crypto economy.

From her Instagram:

 

 

 

Her apartments went on sale on September 6th.  She is selling two 40 floor towers which are connected to a large shopping mall.

The Telegraph reports:

“A studio apartment in the complex starts from around 30 bitcoins, or $133,000, rising to 85 bitcoins for a two-bedroom flat. They come with access to a gym, swimming pool and residents’ lounge, and have views over the Dubai Hills and the city skyline.”

The apartments will be extremely nice, similar to what is pictured below (actually probably nicer).

New owners also have the choice to have their apartment decorated by Baroness Mone Interiors, Michelle’s interior design service. And they too can be paid with Bitcoin.

Michelle’s partner in the endeavor, Doug Barrowman owns a company(the Knox group) that struck a deal with BitStamp to be able to hedge themselves against crypto’s volatility.

It is unfortunate to hear that they will be dumping their Bitcoin for dollars, as they will be giving up future billions in cryptocurrency.

But hey, not everyone is smart enough to realize the way of the future and it is pretty cool that they accept Bitcoin. 👍

What Is Bitcoin Cash & How to Claim Your Coins

What Is Bitcoin Cash & How to Claim Your Coins

So What Is Bitcoin Cash?

Have you been asking yourself what is Bitcoin Cash? Lots of people have and it is because currently Bitcoin is facing a scalability issue. The blockchain needs to be faster if it is to support more users and more demand.

Segregated Witness or Segwit is one answer to this issue. The Segwit update to the Bitcoin software intends to speed up the network and address the network scaling issues. However there are people who believe these updates are not what they seem. Segwit changes how blocks are stored. Essentially new storage space is created in Bitcoin’s blocks, which is not subject to the 1MB size limit but rather a separate 0.7MB limit. The witness data( aka transaction info about inputs and outputs) is moved to this new storage space freeing up room in the original space with a 1MB limit.

Bitcoin Cash is the other alternative that simply raises the block limit to 8MB.

On August 1st Bitcoin Cash hard forked the Bitcoin blockchain. It is now its own digital token, separate from Bitcoin (BTC).

On August 24th, Segwit activated on the Bitcoin blockchain.

We encourage you to read our post on The Hard Truth About Segwit.

How To Claim Your Bitcoin Cash

If you had any amount of Bitcoin prior to the August 1st fork, you should be able to claim your share of Bitcoin Cash.

If you read our previous post, Preparing For The BIP 148 Bitcoin Fork – How To Protect Your Digital Assets we included advice on exporting your wallet private keys prior to the fork. The important part being the Bitcoin should be stored in a wallet where you have full control (ownership of private keys). This means moving BTC off the exchanges.

If you use the Exodus Wallet you can easily use their feature to search the wallet for BCH and then send it to an external BCH address.

If you use a wallet like Mycelium you can use the following instructions to claim your BCH.

We were successfully able to claim Bitcoin Cash with the Coinomi wallet for Android. The BTC was originally in a Mycelium wallet and we followed the following instructions per https://medium.com/@coinomi/collecting-your-free-bitcoin-cash-coins-44fcc6008bb6

[UPDATE] How to get Bitcoin Cash from many wallet/software/services with Coinomi

Dash Hires Security Team To Analyze And Test The Dash Blockchain

Dash Hires Security Team To Analyze And Test The Dash Blockchain

Dash, the cryptocurrency known for focusing on payments and anonymity, has reached consensus within the Dash community to hire a cyber security team to inspect the Dash blockchain and seek out any possible vulnerabilities.

Dash has choosen to use Bugcrowd. “With a powerful platform and team of experts, Bugcrowd connects organizations to a global crowd of trusted security researchers.”

From Ryan Taylor, Dash Core CEO:

“As Dash gains more mainstream attention, identifying and fixing vulnerabilities is absolutely imperative. Bug bounty programs attract fresh eyes to review code which ensures white-hat hackers help identify any security flaws. Providing strong incentives to attract experienced programmers is one of the many tools we have at our disposal to ensure the Dash codebase is as robust as possible.”

“Our landmark release, Evolution, aims to completely redefine how a digital currency functions and will be available for Alpha testing in December. Providing that optimal user experience requires a massive change to the underlying technology. The more improvements Dash adds to the original Bitcoin code, which Dash is based on, means we will continue to invest heavily in ensuring our product meets the highest standard possible. Because digital currencies store wealth and facilitate the transfer of payments, it is critical that we take all measures possible to make absolutely sure that even minor software bugs are addressed.”
