Roger Ver offers “free money” for scam supporters

Roger Ver is now claiming that Bitcoin.com will have an ICO soon, where he wants to “give free money” to anyone holding bitcoin cash. Another attempt of Roger’s to scam support from the vulnerable newbs. Terrible

Another ZCL & BTC fork into Anonymous Bitcoin

There is another Zclassic & Bitcoin forking into Anonymous Bitcoin in September, 2018. (BTCA, ticker will be confirmed later).

The team behind Anonymous Bitcoin claimm to improve the fork situation, in comparison to the previous fork of ZCL & BTC into Bitcoin Private (BTCP). They plan to work with exchanges prior to launching, with confirmation about listings. This was one major problem that BTCP ran into.

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.

UPDATE, supportive exchanges are: BTC Alpha, Ovis Exchange and HitBTC

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.

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.

Nanex.co 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.

Find more information on their website BTCprivate or Twitter page here.

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
Mercatox Team

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

This is another ETH-based ICO using the name bitcoin to attract attention. Basically imo is branding theft.

Super Smart Bitcoin (SBTC) and BCX double forking day

Ok so today at bitcoin block height 498888 we had a double fork from Super Smart Bitcoin (SBTC) and BCX. SBTC 1:1 and BCX 1:10,000. I used the exchange Gate.io & Okex to get my forked coins, all went smooth, dumped everything quickly for bitcoin, as usual. SBTC has been ranging from around $105 – $300 today, while BCX has been ranging around $0.016 – $0.03.

See the Bitcointalk thread here.

BCX (BCX)

As usual most of the Chinese bitcoin exchanges were supporting these forked coins. I participated in using Gate.io, Okex, and Bitfinex. Gate & Okex distributed all tokens asap while Bitfinex still waiting, will post results later. Binance mentions they maybe give SBTC eventually.
