Privacy Cryptocurrency Grin Votes to Fund Third Full-Time Developer

Published

on

Long-time Grin coder “Ignotus Peverell” will receive financial support to work on the cryptocurrency, a move that makes him the nascent project’s third paid team member.

In a weekly governance meeting Tuesday, developers voted to fund Peverell for his work on Grin with roughly $10,000 per month. With 4,919,040 GRIN tokens in circulation, according to CoinMarketCap, the estimated market capitalization of the cryptocurrency is well over $13 million.

Grin, being a relatively new blockchain, went live in mid-January in a bid to implement the privacy-enhancing protocol “MimbleWimble,” designed to obfuscate transaction details such as amount and account addresses. Named after a tongue-tying curse in J.K. Rowling’s best-selling Harry Potter books, the name Ignotus Peverell itself is a pseudonym that references a character within the series.

In the context of the Grin community, Peverell was one of the original creators of the Grin project who back in 2016 started the first implementation of the mimblewimble protocol on GitHub.

A user by the name of “Antioch Peverell” – another Harry Potter character reference – was similarly voted up by the community in late February. Before this, user “Yeastplume” was the sole full-time funded Grin developer.

Yeastplume told CoinDesk:

“There’s no [official] roles. We just continue to work on what we see fit, which so far seems to be working okay.”

Emphasizing in a public Gitter channel that being funded for Grin development work was “risky employment,” Yeastplume later characterized the financial support as more akin to donations.

Audit ahead

Tuesday’s governance meeting also confirmed the “contract and payment” of security auditing firm Coinspect.

Having decided to conduct a third-party review of Grin’s “cryptographic and consensus-critical code,” community members unanimously voted to employ Coinspect over other auditors such as Quarkslab and NCC last month.

Now, having paid a fee up-front to the company of roughly $17,000, Grin community members expect a draft report by April 20. “It’s going to come quickly. They’ve also already produced one excellent vulnerability report,” stated Ignotus Peverell.

As stated on a Github, the estimated cost of the audit is roughly $80,000.

Funds are sourced from the “Grin General Fund,” which back in December of last year raised 17.28 BTC, with an estimated worth at press time of $66,500 specifically for the purposes of this security audit.

PrepayWay – A Swiss FinTech Holding Announces Start of Equity Crowdfunding Campaign

Published

on

March 21st, 2019, Switzerland  – People from different parts of the globe have an opportunity to contribute to the equity of the Swiss-Estonian startup using cryptocurrency. The self-hosted campaign brings together crypto backers and traditional crowdfunding contributors. Supporters will gain equity of the Fintech venture that plans to issue its own token, InBit.

Prepayway Technology

PrepayWay is developing new technology for secure and risk-free transactions with new, unfamiliar business partners. At the same time, the PrepayWay technology focuses on the flaws of the existing transaction process: an obsolete document workflow management system is replaced by instant access to transaction information for all supply chain participants and remote signing of contracts. The bureaucracy of contracting and payment procedures are replaced by an integrated money transfer service and risk management solution embedded in contracts. Lengthy litigation gives way to time and cost-efficient smart arbitration for dispute resolution.

PrepayWay combines the functions of lawyers, banks, escrow agents, and arbitral institutions and offers an all-in-one solution for international contracting, financing, payments, and dispute resolution. Just as smartphones have changed the way people interact and communicate by combining multiple functions in a single device, PrepayWay is changing the way businesses function.

Crowdfunding Details

The funds raised during the crowdfunding campaign will be used to develop solutions for international trade and real estate and a platform for diversification of international crowdlending. The contributors are offered equity in PrepayWay Systems Estonia OÜ, a subsidiary of the PrepayWay AG holding, that is developing the above-mentioned solutions. The roadmap can be seen on the company’s website.

Hard Cap: EUR 2 450 000.

DigiByte Price Turns Bullish as Top Markets Cave Under the Pressure

Published

on

There is still plenty of bearish pressure across all cryptocurrency markets at this time. While that might not please too many users, it is evident this pressure will not relent automatically either. Despite this overwhelming pressure, it appears the DigiByte price is still moving up rather swiftly. A bit of a surprising development, as this market is often overlooked by most traders and speculators.

DigiByte Price Trend Looks Appealing

Not all cryptocurrencies follow Bitcoin’s price trend blindly. That in itself is quite promising in this day and age, although one has to wonder if this situation can remain in place for very long. As of right now, it seems DigiByte is capable of successfully avoiding Bitcoin’s trend, although it is doing so in a way that might not make too much sense to a lot of enthusiasts. Especially its very weak trading volume is a big question mark.

Over the past few hours, the DigiByte price managed to gain 9.42% in USD value and 11.13% over Bitcoin itself. Both trends are very impressive, especially for an altcoin which barely notes $2.881m in trading volume. Because of this somewhat surprising uptrend, the current value per DGB sits at $0.014539, or 362 Satoshi. As both of these trends prove to be somewhat promising, one also has to wonder how long they will remain in place. Bucking the overall industry-wide trend for very long is usually rather difficult.

When it comes to surprising developments like these it is pertinent to keep an eye on social media. Although the opinions on DigiByte are a bit all over the place, some users would like to see DGB make its way to Coinbase in the very near future. While it is not impossible by any means, it will be interesting to see if the company effectively takes customer feedback to heart in this day and age.

CryptoDucky, on the other hand, isn’t too bothered with having this altcoin listed on more exchanges such as Coinbase. Instead, he predicts DGB is one of the two currencies one needs to hold to become rich in the near future. While that level of optimism certainly is something else, it seems unlikely either of those two markets will pop off when Bitcoin remains as bearish as it is right now.

 

For traders willing to take a bit of a gamble with DigiByte, there is an interesting triangular arbitrage opportunity worth looking into. It can yield a potential profit of over 11%, although it does require the use of some lesser-known exchanges and trading platforms. As such, this option might not be as appealing to everyone, but it is still an option worth looking into regardless.
