MoneroV hard fork postponed to April 30th

MoneroV, a planned hard-fork of one of the top 10 biggest market cap crypto currencies Monero has postponed fork date, originally was set for March 13-14, and the new estimated fork date April 30th. Monero (XMR) owners will receive 10 XMV per 1 XMR they own.

Statement from MoneroV official website:

MoneroV hard-fork date postponed to April 30th, 2018

Having both our team and community grow rapidly, the past few months has positioned the MoneroV project and the upcoming hard-fork as a highly anticipated event. With both great support and enthusiasm, we are dedicated to realizing the vision of a truly decentralized, finite currency to serve the community for years to come.

Due to the growing demand and increasing expectations from users, trading platforms, and large mining pools, we have decided that the Snapshot date will be postponed to ~30th of April block 1564965 to facilitate third-party services requests and including these below reasons:

Exchanges and custodian services need more time to implement the MoneroV technology for them to support the fork and credit XMR holders with XMV. We are in the process of helping leading exchanges (from the top five Monero trading platforms) to list MoneroV. These services require additional time for implementation and we are positive that postponing the hard-fork date so that more users will be credited with their XMV outweighs the drawbacks.
Monero’s own software update that will occur in March is causing confusion with the initial hard-fork date. This is a common complaint we hear from both the Monero community and our own. Postponing the hard-fork snapshot date will help both Blockchains.
Mining pools are asking for more time to implement MoneroV. We want to help these pools to prepare for the hard-fork split so that MoneroV will be more stable and robust.
Many users have difficulty storing their XMR locally using the Monero GUI wallet due to its large blockchain size. Postponing the hard-fork date will help more users to prepare and be able to claim their XMV’s.
Overall, taking into consideration these reasons, and although MoneroV’s codebase is fully functional, we are positive that it would be best to postpone the snapshot date.

Read more about it on MoneroV website here, Bitcointalk thread here, and Twitter here

Buy Monero at exchanges like Binance and Bitfinex, must use BTC or ETH to buy XMR.

Universa’s amazing flash SPIKE yesterday

Universa is a Russian ICO that has trading going live already on Cobinhood and HitBTC. The latest price range of Universa (UTNP) has been about 350 – 500 satoshi’s, about $0.4 – 0.5 cents. Yesterday I logged into my Cobinhood account and noticed all my UTNP sells had vanished, so after investigating I learned that Universa had a flashspike! It rose to 5000 satoshi’s for a minute on Cobinhood (about $0.50!!!)

So guys, it went from 0.00000400 to 0.00005000!!!

over 10x gains with Universa for some of us!

HUGE gains were made to myself personally and anyone else who set very high limit sell orders for Universa on Cobinhood. These situations are hard to plan for, but it’s a sure reminder to always have your limit orders “in order” always!

Here is Coinmarketcap screenprint of Universa, here you can see huge spike, but it doesn’t show the 10x spike that actually did happen in Cobinhood.

Beware scammers posing as HitBTC reps

Scammers using HitBTC representations are rigorously aiming to scam anyone they can. So far I know they’ve been contacting members of the HitBTC forums.

They have ICQ accounts using the real HitBTC logos as their avatars. (Scammer ICQ: 723627901)
They even have the domain and send emails from (scammer email) as real .com reps


As you can see, the user “Death-Note” is most likely part of the scam.

HitBTC support replies:

Dear traders! are scammers, do not give them your personal information. is the only right address. Follow basic internet security measures: don’t visit unknown suspicious links, check your PC for malware on a regular basis, and everything will be fine.

Another way they are phishing for our personal informations is through ICQ. I’ve been contacted via ICQ by someone who claims to be part of the HitBTC team. To confirm about this I asked the HitBTC team in a thread, posted below:


Dear @TalkBitcoinsCom HitBTC support team has no ICQ support service. We strongly recommend you to not talk to these people. Don’t visit unknown suspicious links, check your PC for malware on a regular basis, and everything will be fine.

As you can see, another confirmed scamming or phishing attempt.

We all need to beware, these scammers are rigorously attempting to steal anything they can from you, information, money, crypto, ANYTHING.

Preparing for Bitcoin Private fork (BTCP)

Bitcoin Private fork is coming Feb 28, 2018. Each Bitcoin (BTC) holder and Zclassic (ZCL) holder will receive 1:1 Bitcoin Private (BTCP). So you better get prepared if you plan on claiming your forked coin.

Here is what we have so far:

KuCoin has announced support for the BTCP fork. KuCoin is a fairly new exchange and an active supporter of many Bitcoin forks. They have given users BTCP already, opened markets for a few days, but now they say they will not support trading of BTCP anymore.

TradeSatoshi has announced support for it. Just added BTCP/NANO trading pairs today.

Binance, BitcoinPrivate announced on Twitter they have submitted application at Binance to get listed. A rep from Binance told me “Right now not support”. So make your own decisions.

HitBTC has announced they’ll be listing BitcoinPrivate for trading, but no confirmation about distributing BTCP coins to BTC holders.

Bittrex, many people seem to believe Bittrex will be supporting the fork since they do have both BTC & ZCL pairs there. Bittrex announced they’ll help ZCL holders get their BTCP but they will not be crediting to BTC holders

There have been no other announcements regarding any other exchanges that I’m aware of.

Is Litecoin Cash really a scam?

Everyone in the crypto space is aware of the recent Litecoin pump, some say due to the announcement of Litepay, some actually think part due to the upcoming “fork” of Litecoin called Litecoin Cash (LCC).

Charlie Lee posted on Twitter saying LCC is a scam:

PSA: The Litecoin team and I are not forking Litecoin. Any forks that you hear about is a scam trying to confuse you to think it’s related to Litecoin. Don’t fall for it and definitely don’t enter your private keys or seed into their website or client. Be careful out there!

Since on the topic of scams, any fork of Litecoin, calling itself Litecoin something or other, is a scam IMO. Litecoin Cash, Litecoin Plus, Litecoin *… all scams trying to confuse users into thinking they are Litecoin.
This also applies to all Bitcoin forks trying to confuse.

But with the way he’s wording it on his tweet, I believe he means it’s more of a theft, as in intentional branding theft of Litecoin and misleading crypto investors rather than actually scamming users for their Litecoins. Also there is no reason for a fork of Litecoin, it’s completely unnecessary and for that fact some may call this a cash-grab by the creators of LCC, or even call it scammy.

This is just my opinion, read more about the Litecoin Cash “fork” or whatever you want to call it, on the Bitcointalk thread here.

Price Prediction for Litecoin Cash

Lets say a 1:1 fork coin would roughly be a 10th of price of Litecoin, so at current rate we’ll say $22, but since LCC distributing 10:1 I think it’s safe to assume a 10th of that, which would put it at $2.20 according to my estimation.

I still believe since the fork is basically useless, maybe worth a minor pump off the bat, or a dump as people trying to rid of their received coins, my overall guesstimate would be $0.75 – $1.50 per 1 LitecoinCash (LCC).

Supporting Exchanges

So far only one crypto currency exchange has made any specific statement about possibly supporting the Litecoin / LitecoinCash fork. Mercatox exchange had this announcement today:

LTC processing upgrade
Mercatox is performing a scheduled LTC node system and processing upgrade The upgrade will take approximately few days. Mercatox will suspend withdrawals of LTC during this period. We apologize for any inconvenience caused, and thank you for your patience. Also we will cancel all stacked withdrawals and will ask you to order it again.
We will do our best to accept the upcoming fork which should occur on or around February 19th, 2018 and fund your accounts with LCC.
Thank you for staying with us. SOURCE

UPDATE: Yobit, TradeSatoshi, Crypto Bridge, SouthXchange and MeanXTrade all announced support of LCC.

Cryptopia delisting InfiniteCoin (IFC)

“Status: Maintenance. 22nd January – IFC network was the victim of a 51% attack which resulted in the loss of some funds in Cryptopia’s IFC wallet. Unfortunately Cryptopia is unable to regulate or control a coins network. The wallet is now empty and IFC will be delisted ASAP.”

And sad to say, but their support has not been helpful with my attempts to withdraw my coins since 2 months ago

They have replied Feb 2, 2018:

“As you may know, IFC has been a target of a 51% attack and due this attack the majority of IFC coins were lost. We are now lifting the maintenance status to allow users to withdraw their coins.

Users are allowed to withdraw and will be based off first come first serve basis. We realise that this isn’t ideal, so please try and withdraw at your earliest convenience.

Once the wallet is empty, we will be delisting this coin.

As it is the Coin’s team who are responsible for ensuring their network is secure, any further Complaints and support requests should be directed towards the IFC team. You may be able to contact them via their website here: or

We sincerely apologise for any losses that may have incurred due to this attack.

Kind Regards,
Cryptopia Support”

Sleazy “Bitcoin is dead” advertising

Bitcoin is dead adverts, sleazy, scammy, scummy

An article at UndergroundFinance by Jeff Brown claims “bitcoin is dead” and this Jeff character boasts about how he supposedly “called it”, predicting shit correctly, which is obviously bullshit that is trying to get people to entrust in himself and his article. UndergroundFinance/JeffBrown are paying top dollar to get their bullshit, deceptive adverts all across crypto related sites like Coin Market Cap ( I would advise against clicking any adverts by: UndergroundFinance, Jeff Brown, or Bonner And Partners ( Really terrible, sleazy and deceptive marketing practices, shame on you dbags 😡
