  1. NVIDIA assumed that sales of GPUs for miners in the second fiscal quarter of 2018, will reach the level about $100 million. Instead, the total amount of income in this sector, according to the report, amounted to only $18 million, And even these low incomes, according to NVIDIA, most likely, will disappear completely in the near future. "...We predict a complete lack of demand from the cryptocurrency market in the future," said NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang at a reporting press conference on Thursday. The most profitable division of Nvidia is gaming, which creates chips responsible for processing graphics in video games. Here, the company's revenue in the last reporting quarter amounted to $ 1.8 billion against $ 1.2 billion in the second quarter of the previous financial year. Analysts expected a turnover of $1.75 billion Shares of NVIDIA increased by 59% over the last year and by 32.8% since the beginning of 2018. In may-July, 2018 in the unit, specializing in the production of professional graphics cards Quadro, Nvidia revenues increased by 20% compared to the previous corresponding period to $281 million, the Volume automotive business, NVIDIA grew 13% to $161 million In the third fiscal quarter, Nvidia expects revenue of $3.25 billion, plus or minus 2%. On Wall Street predict about $ 3.34 billion.
  2. According to a new report, "Kaspersky Lab" in the second quarter of 2018. cybercriminals stole more than $2.3 million using cryptocurrency fraud schemes. In a report titled "Spam and phishing in the second quarter of 2018," the company reported that from April to June 2018, it prevented 58,000 attempts to visit fraudulent websites masquerading as popular wallets and exchanges. In addition, as noted by Kaspersky Lab, attackers earn by convincing their victims to financially support fake tokens-sales and ICO. "The persistence of attacks aimed at financial institutions reflects the fact that more and more people are beginning to use electronic money,"Nadezhda Demidova, a leading analyst of Kaspersky Lab web content, wrote in A press release. – But not all of them are well aware of the possible risks, so attackers are actively trying to steal sensitive data using phishing. The most popular cryptocurrency among phishers at the moment is Ethereum (Etherium, ETH). According to estimates of Kaspersky Lab, for the II quarter of 2018, fraudsters were able to lure more than $2 million from gullible users on fake ICO, and this does not take into account the classic phishing. In addition, according to experts, the spread of phishing and other fraudulent content has gone beyond mailing lists. One of the largest mass attacks of this nature at the end of the first half of 2018 was recorded in messengers and social networks. And users, without realizing it, actively "helped" malefactors, voluntary sending fraudulent messages to the friends. According to the observations of analysts of Kaspersky Lab, fraudsters are increasingly using WhatsApp for" viral " distribution of their content. Messenger users themselves multiply fraudulent content, sending it as well as" chain letters " many years ago. Mostly in such reports we are talking about a non-existent sweepstakes or free offers. After the user has sent a link to friends, it is redirected to another resource, the content of which varies depending on the location of the victim and the device used. If the user visits the site from a smartphone, it is often automatically signed up for paid services. It can also be redirected to a survey, lottery or other malicious website. For example, it may be asked to install an extension for the browser, which will later intercept the data entered by the user on other resources, as well as perform actions on the network on its behalf, for example, publish posts on social networks. In the popular social network Twitter is used by another fraudulent scheme: the attacker creates fake accounts of famous persons and companies and on their behalf report on the alleged free hand amount of cryptocoins. To receive the "reward" you only need to transfer a little crypto currency to the address indicated in the message, and in response to receive the amount multiplied several times. Also in the report there are statistics on countries, reflecting the global scope of phishing. Cyber crimes are committed around the world, and the most active regions are South America and Asia. So, for the II quarter 15.5% of the attacks were committed in Brazil. It is followed by China and Georgia (14.4%), Kyrgyzstan (13.6%) and Russia (13.27%).
  3. The number of ads for the sale of programs for illegal mining in the network is growing, and the prices are falling, experts warn. This provokes an increase in theft, and the attackers steal electricity and technical resources of the victims. During the year, according to the system Group-IB Threat Intelligence, the number of ads on the shadow forums, which offers programs for mining for sale or rent, increased by 5 times. At the same time, experts note a dangerous trend: Trojans-miners, with the help of which attackers use other people's computers and infrastructure without the knowledge of the owners for mining crypto-currencies, are becoming increasingly available. This method, cryptogenic still relatively popular, although the number of such incidents gradually decreases. During the first half of 2018, Group-IB cyber intelligence has recorded 477 ads on hacker forums offering the sale, and even the rental of mining programs. In the first 6 months of 2017, there were five fewer such ads: 99. The growing popularity of such theft can provide not only an increase in the number of proposals of programs-miners on the Darknet forums, but also their availability: the price of the program for hidden mining starts from $0.5. On average, this software costs about $10. The low threshold of entering the market of "black earnings" on illegal mining leads to the fact that people without technical knowledge and any experience of participation in fraudulent schemes are engaged in the extraction of crypto-currencies. Having gained access to simple tools for hidden mining of cryptocurrencies, they do not consider it a crime, especially since the legislative field still leaves enough loopholes to avoid prosecution for such theft. The arrest and prosecution of crypto-jacking are still few, despite the fact that most of the methods of installing a miner program involve violation of the laws. Experts note: hackers can use almost any device - from servers and computers to smartphones for crypto-jacking. So we need to take their protection more seriously, because new types of programs easily bypass many types of security systems. But mining is not only a direct financial loss due to the increased cost of electricity. It is also a threat to the sustainability and continuity of business processes: the work of corporate systems is slowing down, and the depreciation of equipment is growing. So the infection of the infrastructure with a Trojan-miner can lead to the failure of corporate applications, networks and systems, experts warn.

  6. ICO coin & crypto in 2018
  7. The country of fire and ice accounts for 3% of the world's mining volume — a colossal figure, given that only 340 000 people live in Iceland. For comparison, the European Union produces 5% of the total cryptocurrency, in Georgia — 6%, in the US and Canada — 16%, in China — 60%. In February 2018, the representative of the Icelandic energy company HS Orka Johann Snorri Sigurbergsson in interview "Bi-bi-si" said that the rapid growth of mining in Iceland and the commissioning of new farms can lead to interruptions in the supply of electricity. According to his forecast, already in 2018 mining capacity will consume more electricity than the entire population of Iceland (households spend an average of 700 GWh per year, and data centers and cooling systems can reach 840 GWh per year). A significant share of mining in Iceland falls on the Enigma crypto farm. According to Huffington Post, Enigma ranks first in the world in terms of production volumes of Ethereum. Iceland's popularity among miners is primarily due to the low cost of electricity — an average of $0.043 per kWh, which is several times less than the average level in the European Union. So, on one of the Icelandic mining farms, the filling of mining hangars is quite monotonous — it's multi-level racks, densely Packed with rumbling computers. At the entrance to each room with equipment prudently hung flask with colored earplugs. In one hangar mined bitcoin, the other-Ethereum. Near the hangars for mining Dash, Litecoin, Monero and Zcash...The hangars are a bit further with utility room and small workshop here in neat rows on the tables laid out of the video card.With clear regulation, mining could well become a major source of income for Iceland. Mining remains a profitable business — a typical Antminer S9 device now brings up to $8 per day, consuming about 30 kWh per day. The cost of electricity is $ 1.3, that is, there is a minimum of $6.7. Even with the cost of wages, Internet, depreciation of farm devices is still in the black. And besides, mining in Iceland can be considered as export of the electric power.
  8. This is true, although, now and without much news, the cryptocurrency market is going through hard times and few people understand where this cryptocurrency market is still alive and where it is no longer...(((
  9. The situation on stock exchanges: On may 1, Bitfinex announced support for the cryptocurrency Stellar and Verge, as well as BitcoinInterest PoC (fork of bitcoin), and moved the tokens ERC20 TRX on the public blockchain TRON. On may 15, three updates on the us exchange Poloniex will come into force. Starting from this date, commissions, whose size will be reduced to 0.20%, will be calculated on a 30-day trading volume in us dollars, not in bitcoin. Also, the exchange will reduce the 30-day limit of trading volume required to get the discount. The cryptocurrency exchange Kucoin intends to transfer tokens with a small volume of trade into a "special regime", which means the first step on the way to delisting or the final bath, although the assets will be given a chance to "postpone the sentence". Coins moved to the "special mode" zone will be marked accordingly so that traders can know that there is a risk of removing them. Thanks to the clearly spelled out legal norms in Malta, whose authorities recently announced that they intend to create a cryptocurrency-friendly regime, now accounts for the largest share of world trade in cryptocurrencies, although this country ranks only 22nd in the number of registered cryptocurrency companies (a huge volume of trading it provided primarily that the Binance exchange moved operations from Hong Kong to Malta). Investment and business: Messenger Telegram suspends its ICO and will not hold an open tocancel. This was reported by the Wall Street Journal, citing an anonymous source. As the reasons for the cancellation are considered as more stringent rules of the regulators with respect to ICO. Another reason may be that Telegram has already raised enough money for a closed sale and no longer needs an open ICO. Peter Thiel invested $ 15.5 million in the bitcoin startup Tagomi Systems, which plans to serve orders for the purchase and sale of cryptocurrencies, providing brokerage services to institutional investors and family investment companies. Goldman Sachs, the world's largest investment Bank, will start offering bitcoin futures. The Bank is planning to launch this project on a modest scale, starting with a limited set of derivatives without direct bitcoin trading. BMW, Ford, GM and Renault have joined forces with technology providers and start-UPS to form the largest in the history of the blockchain-the consortium in the automotive sector. A project called Open Blockchain Mobility Initiative (MOBI) plans to create a common standard for distributed register (blockchain network) and software interface for payments and ensure the communication between vehicles, organizing so a new ecosystem of digital mobility. Opinions and estimates: In the annual letter to investors co-founder of Google Sergey Brin said that the growing demand for mining industry in terms of computing power, along with other factors caused a "boom in computing resources". Currently, Google is studying the prospects of blockchain technology and carries out its own development. Co-founder of Reddit Alexis Ohanian predicts that in 2018 the price of Ethereum will reach $ 15,000. By the way, payments for a premium subscription to Reddit will soon be available again in cryptocurrency (not only in bitcoin, as before, but also in air and litecoin). Cai Wensheng, the founder of Meitu, said in a recent interview that he had a goal to buy 10,000 bitcoins, which he was able to achieve thanks to the fall in the rate in 2018. In its new annual report, the international monetary Fund concluded that cryptocurrencies do not threaten the stability of the global economy. Also in cryptocurrencies did not see a threat to the Hong Kong police and the head of Europol Rob Wainwright. Cryptocurrency trader and bachelor of Economics and Finance Vatican Mahalingam in his article introduced the concept of hardspun ("spoons"), as opposed to the hard forks ("fork") and explained why it is relevant to many protocols and projects of the blockchain. Regulation: In the prevention of money laundering and other criminal activities of the financial services Agency of Japan (FSA) is secretly putting pressure on the crypto currency exchange that they refused from transactions with Monero (XMR), zcash for (ZEC), Dash (Dash), as well as other crypto-currencies c increased anonymity. A working group of regulators, including high-ranking officials from the SEC and CFTC, will discuss on may 7 whether ether can be considered securities and its legal status, as it is believed that ether is in the "grey zone" and its establishment in 2014 was an illegal sale of securities. However, the SEC does not plan to ban ICO-projects and considers options for the legalization of investment activities in the cryptocurrency sector. Against Ripple filed a class action alleging that the company from San Francisco "from scratch" created billions of coins and profited from selling them to the public during the "endless ICO". The plaintiffs believe Ripple violated state and Federal laws by offering unregistered securities to retail investors. New amendments to the Belarusian decree "on the development of the digital economy" provide that cryptocurrency exchanges will be obliged to disclose their data and identify customers. Will be introduced a procedure of verification: the exchange will be to compare the identification data with information from social networks and databases of third parties. in addition, the operator will be required to track the address of the Internet Protocol of the user. All information about clients and transactions will be stored on the exchange for at least five years. Soon, members of the national Assembly of South Korea can discuss the long-awaited bill that will lift the ban on ICO. However, this is not a complete lifting of the ban: the bill only proposes to allow the activities of ICO initiated by research centers and the public sector. Other events in the world of crypto business: The website CoinMarketCap rebranded and Creator of Ethereum, Vitalik Buterin published a study of the concept of sharding — updates to the blockchain of Ethereum. Also, OpenBazaar is preparing large-scale updates to the p2p trading platform, which recently received investments from Bitmain. The last one this week announced a new asik called Antminer Z9 mini, working on the Equihash algorithm, which is used for mining cryptocurrencies Bitcoin Gold, Zcash, ZenCash and Hush. The Australian branch of the organization UNICEF launched the website the Hope Page, which mines cryptocurrencies due to the computational power of visitors. The non-profit organization said that the site "will allow Australians to help vulnerable children simply by opening a page while they are online."
