  3. https://www.financemagnates.com/cryptocurrency/trading/avatrade-adds-ethereum-dash-ripple-cryptocurrency-cfd-trading/ AvaTrade Adds Ethereum, Dash and Ripple Cryptocurrency CFD Trading AvaTrade first introduced Bitcoin CFD trading back in 2013, both on MT4 and on its proprietary platform. Avi Mizrahi | Trading (CryptoCurrency) | Thursday, 18/05/2017|09:43 GMT Photo: FM The massive recent cryptocurrency rally is not going unnoticed by the online trading industry. The multi-regulated international forex and CFD broker AvaTrade announced today that it is adding three rising altcoins, Ethereum, Dash and Ripple’s XRP, to its trading portfolio. The London Summit 2017 is coming, get involved! The choice of these specific blockchain tokes is not very surprising considering the incredible returns they generated in 2017 which must have brought a lot of interest, and pressure on the broker from its clients to add them. Ripple’s XRP now has a market cap of $13.5 billion, up from $1.5 billion in early April. Ethereum and Dash already jumped before that in the previous cryptocurrency price explosion. Dáire Ferguson “The latest political and financial events have changed the trading world, and we work hard to ensure we stay on the top of our game, and always remain an industry leading brokerage”, says Mr. Dáire Ferguson, CEO of AvaTrade. “We are proud to be the first to introduce these exciting cryptocurrencies to our impressive instruments’ selection.” Ireland-based AvaTrade was founded in 2006 and offers more than 250 financial instruments, multiple trading platforms and mobile apps. It is regulated in the EU, Japan, Australia, South Africa and the British Virgin Islands. AvaTrade first introduced Bitcoin CFD trading back in 2013, both on the popular MetaTrader 4 (MT4) and on its proprietary platform. The cryptocurrency ecosystem has been on fire this year. Most of the 700+ blockchain assets traded around the world are up significantly this year. In total, the combined value of the entire market is now at a record $62 billion. Leading the pack is still Bitcoin with a price of over $1840 and a market cap of $30 billion.
  4. Bitcoin, Dash Payments Could Soon Cover 80% Of Ukraine Merchant Terminals https://cointelegraph.com/news/bitcoin-dash-payments-could-soon-cover-80-of-ukraine-merchant-terminals Bitcoin, Dash Payments Could Soon Cover 80% Of Ukraine Merchant Terminals 6517 Total views 182 Total shares A project aiming to introduce Bitcoin and Dash payments across the Ukrainian retail sector has gained over $20,000 funding. The as yet unnamed initiative, which began as a proposal on the Dash Central platform, now has 255 Dash ($21,500) at its disposal and has partnered with backend clients to make consumer payments possible. In a progress update, developers pointed to a need for an alternative merchant scheme in Ukraine as extant operators such as Bitpay are not best suited to merchants’ financial situations. “The problem with that is a limited number of fiat currencies that are supported there,” developers write. “Yes, they have dollars and euros but there are so much more different (sic) local fiat currencies in this world.” The food and hospitality sector is first in line to trial the eventual implementation, with two restaurant chains due to pilot. Transactions will be instant, even those which do not use Dash’s Instant-Send feature, thanks to an API from local Ukrainian exchange Forksale, currently under development. Acceptance will come through the second partnership with Profit Solutions, a merchant payments facilitator for Ukraine which covers around 80 percent of active terminals according to the update. “That means that the restaurant industry is only a tip of the iceberg of how big this integration can be and the benefits for Dash network in particular since there will be a lot of Dash-exclusive features,” it continues. Progress is brisk, with the initial ready-to-use product due for release in three months time.

  7. Thursday night Ethereum price surprisingly leapfrogged from the $70 column to $100 sending Ethereum fans and holders with smiles all the way to the crypto “bank” to check their balances. With an impressive 22.75 percent jump, everything seems to be going well for them and their market cap is at $9 bln. Now, the overall crypto market cap has reached $40 bln. The development means the smart contract pioneer has now overtaken the anon crypto, Dash, who has been in the $90 column for some time already. However, at the time of writing, Dash is being sold at over $100. Dash has already made history by being the first altcoin to breach the $100 mark. With both being in the $100 lane at the time of filing this report, it is fascinating to imagine which of the two cryptos can hold on this position. Even though Ethereum is currently slightly ahead, you cannot rear your head out in this industry when it comes to prices and market cap prediction. A few pundits have been noted to be successful at this. Force behind Ethereum After rupturing the $50 mark, Ethereum price has made an upward adjustment of almost 80 percent. Many experts in the crypto ecosystem are confident Ether is burgeoning as a result of a possible ETF approval, whilst others are speculating that more institutional investors are now getting involved. Moreso, there is another school of thought which holds that the decision to reconsider the denied Bitcoin ETF in March is also influencing the swelling of the second most valuable cryptocurrency. Whatever the case may be, it is all good for the landscape as critics and skeptics of the industry continue to be shamed. Dash can make it On the other hand, there is one factor that is likely to push Dash towards the $100 range as well, come what may. The privacy-centric digital outfit has been given another significant boost by being listed by Coinapult this week. The integration will allow fiat purchase of Dash globally without a third party. As a matter of fact, the latest partnership is very quintessential since Coinapult is well positioned. Anyway, the battle between Ether and Dash to reach and keep the $100 position is so exciting and invigorating for the entire crypto community. Regardless of whoever gets there first, it will expand the frontiers for all. https://cointelegraph.com/news/ethereum-vs-dash-in-race-for-100-mark-both-crossed-threshold

  9. Home Blockchain CORK’S FIRST BLOCKCHAIN HACKATHON AND CONFERENCE RICK NASSAR MAY 3, 2017 BLOCKCHAINEVENTSINNOVATIONIRELAND By Rick Nassar #HumbleHustler | Tech Startups & IoT | Founder @CoderClanHQ & @ioteire | @startupweekend Facilitator | PhD candidate @UCDDublin | Contributor @Irish_TechNews. See more articles by Rick for ITN here. When do you know that you just witnessed the future in the evolving right in front of your eyes? It was the moment when I was listening to young ambitious developers with an ocean of knowledge in Blockchain. Sitting on the second row at the Blockchain Conference mesmerised by the unbelievable information these guys are offering that most would pay thousands to learn, just because they were only delighted to help. Of course I couldn’t leave without a quick Q&A with the Founder and organiser of the Conference, Graham De Barra. What was the hackathon all about? The OI Hackathon hosted a range of professionals in development, procurement, payments and blockchain technology. We met over three-days in Opera Incubator and at the Blockchain Industry Conference. We worked on solving problems and thought experiments to achieve more adoption by the Cork community. A major point of discussion was the high volatility in cryptocurrencies which is the biggest obstacle for merchant adoption. The CTO of OI won the best idea with his Blockchain Stabiliser, a theory based on randomness in the financial market. You can learn more about this theory in Rapisarda’s “Micro and macro benefits of random investments in financial markets” or reach out to the OI team. How many years has it been going? Opera Incubator launched in 2017. We began in 2014 as Local Crypto in Ireland, Switzerland and Macedonia to promote education around blockchain technology. We hosted the first Ethereum meetup in Ireland under this group. We decided we wanted to build an industry and do applied blockchain development and we founded OI accordingly. What was the inspiration behind it? The hackathon was an invitation to the Irish developer community to work on problems and learn more about developer opportunities within OI. What exciting things announced at the event? Opera Incubator have launched a partnership with Dash, the fifth biggest cryptocurrency in the world and valued at half a billion dollars. We are working with Bitcart, an amazon.com gift card platform and our latest announcement is Festy, a wearable payment technology. There are many exciting projects coming in the pipeline for us and you can join our Slack to keep up-to date! You also had some great sponsors, can you elaborate more about a few of them? Our hackathon and Blockchain Industry Conference was sponsored by Bitcart and Dash. Bitcart is an Irish-based gift card exchange for acquiring major discounts on amazon.com aimed at the US-market. Dash reached out for a partnership recently. Dash are sponsoring OI projects and we are working very closely together to bring their payment technology to Ireland. Dash is a faster, cheaper and more scalable crypto currency compared with bitcoin and they have an excellent governance model which aligns with my philosophy. From here I am meeting local authorities and merchants in Ireland to adopt Dash. Merchants can avail of cheaper processing fees and eliminate fraud which is riddled in traditional commerce due to credit card chargebacks which can’t happen with Dash. What opportunities were on offer for people / startups / investors and companies attending? The first thing is networking. Attendees included the Dash Foundation, banks, blockchain developers, miners, traders, local entrepreneurs, local businesses, merchants and consultants. For such a niche technology, there aren’t many experts in Ireland so it helps people to host these kind of events. Tell me more about Graham De Barra, how did you get involved with blockchain? I began trading bitcoin P2P when I lived in France in 2013 because I couldn’t get a job with the language barrier! Money and bitcoin was the universal language that I spoke and so I advertised a trading service. I brought this service back to Ireland and while it started off very small (bitcoin was valued around €20 at the time) it quickly grew into one of the largest P2P services in Europe. I completed a philosophy degree and a LL.M in international human rights law since then and became intrigued about internet governance and blockchain as a human right. After working in the Council of Europe, I now work on my own projects relating to applied governance and business on the blockchain. What is current business about? We are mostly developing blockchain technology for the pharmaceutical industry, pub industry, tourism industry and music industry in Ireland. We are always looking to explore new opportunities and if anyone wants to work together they can get in contact with me. How long have you been at it? I’ve personally been over 4 years setting up the blockchain industry in Ireland and the rest of Europe. I hear there is an incubator programme you have set up as well, can you tell me more about that? Opera Incubator is a team composed of experts in blockchain with the aim to incubate global companies in Ireland. We train entrepreneurs on everything blockchain through our workshops and events. Our next certified training course will happen on 16 – 18 June in Cork. Any other information you’d like to add for the readers? For anyone with an interest in development or business, I would encourage you to research how blockchain technology works and apply it to your interest. If you need help you can always do our certified course or get in contact for consulting. http://irishtechnews.ie/corks-first-blockchain-hackathon-and-conference/
