betbox ICO
coinanalysis

Betbox is a fully decentralized ecosystem acting in various DApps with the assignment to provide a fully transparent, fair and yet challenging environment for people with a passion for gambling and a sense for competition. Our users may contribute their knowledge and experience to the growing project by submitting ideas or solutions, which are ready for implementation, in return for OX.

Betbox smart contracts are devel-oped to reimburse 20% of the commissions (ETH) taken by the company for betting, every quarter of the year to volunteering parties* in return for tokens to moderate the inflation of OX. 100 Mio. OX will initially be created. The closure of each bet in the betbox smart contracts will create a single OX and randomly distribute it to a user of the ecosystem.

The RNG of betbox is based on issuance of future block hashes on Ethereum public mainnet.

*OX holders may lock tokens into the specified smart contract to receive profit share of the period. The locked OX will be burned within the process.

EXISTING PROBLEM.
Technology is supposed to be a means to free our time, this will occur by automating tasks and performing them in a way and manner that is more efficient.

Technology has however introduced a stream that is never ending, that creates new ways to waste away time.

The window of uninterrupted free time that is usually available to professionals on a daily basis is gradually shrinking.

It has been discovered yearly that, billions of hours are lost to inflexible hourly scheduling which leaves behind lengthy periods of waiting between clients as well as parties. READ MORE

Why is now the right time to buy?
by ianmd

Please don’t shout “do your own research”! Putting price aside (close to recent time lows) why is now the time to buy Dash? What are you looking forward to Dash rolling out in the near term future? Dash has always been one of them coins I’ve know exists but never enticed me to go further, but I’ve heard a lot more promising things recently (and anything that may have a greater chance of success than NANO, a project I love, grabs my interest). Welcome views. What transaction volume is Dash capable of at the mo, and speed (normal, not the 1.5s insta option). Has Dash separated itself enough from the sluggish performance of Bitcoin, given the core code. Thank you. READ MORE

What do you prefer, code is law or intent of code is law?
by amine4ever

Eosinsider
Intent of code. That is why we have ricardian contracts. Users shouldn’t be punished by buggy code (think parity wallet, etc.)
amy1kenobi
The DAO already proved that code is not law. Why are we still arguing about this 2 years later? Right now the EOS network is trying to undo the EOSBet smart contract hack. That’s not ‘code is law’ either.
zenethics
Code is law. Intent is messy, arguable, and hard to define. Code is rigid and deterministic (even if programmed to be random). You can argue intent after the fact. “Well, I didn’t mean for my gambling dApp to let the same person win twice!”
You can’t argue that a piece of code didn’t execute in the way that it did, even if you don’t like or didn’t anticipate the outcome. READ MORE

Can we imagine an EOS token dedicated to a pure currency function?
by XYZDav

I would like to know if and how EOS could be used as a currency (to compete with Bitcoin for instance) in the future. I appreciate the EOS token is not designed for such purpose but could we imagine a token “EOSc” (for instance) running on the platform and that is ONLY used as a medium of exchange? Quasi instant transfer and no resources (CPU, Bandwidth, etc.) attached?

It sounds like a pretty simple idea but it could ciment EOS as a valuable crypto ALSO used for day-to-day payments. If EOS does not become a currency in some way, its value will only reside in smart contract processing and in 5–10yrs from now it might not mean much. READ MORE

Introducing: The EOS Times | You Daily Newscast For All Things EOS
by ezrayaodunk

Hey guys it’s Crypto Dunker here. So after listening to your comments and suggestions I have officially decided to dedicate my channel more to EOS and less to general crypto content. I’ve started a new daily EOS newscast called “The EOS Times”, where we will have daily updates on news & developments, gaming, dapp reviews, airdrops, and all things EOS related.

For today’s very first episode. We discuss DiceBet reaching parabolic levels of usage, Block.one’s Elemental Battles toolkit for EOSIO developers, and the epic looking EOS version of Minecraft: EOS Planet: https://youtu.be/W0aje3VbF7g

100m limit coming soon

Is the debt ceiling going to be raised? If not I could see the price of DAI going up a lot.

Multicollateral Dai out soon. The ceiling will go way up after that. Dai is basically in beta now.

I wondered why they make ceiling.
Is that kind of risk management purpose?

Yes, but hitting the limit is a different kind of risk.

The only thing MakerDAO has to worry about is the one ring of centralized control
by huntingisland

re: Circle / Coinbase USD coin and its nearly identical Gemini twin, it really doesn’t have any use other than sending funds between exchanges.

It’s too unsafe to HODL due to governmental risk, you can’t use it in lots of Dapps lest TPTB decide you’ve done some kind of financial operation without appropriate permission, nobody should ever allow it to be loan collateral for the same reasons, and you certainly can’t use it in a grey smart contract like Augur.

All it takes is a single poisoned token / ETH transfer from a “bad” address to your USDC address for your coins to be frozen without recourse for weeks, months, years or even permanently! READ MORE

MakerDAO Oracles
by raiden4

I have some questions regarding the oracles in maker:

  1. How many oracles are there?
  2. Were they voted on by MKR governance, or simply existed from the beginning?
  3. Are they compensated?
  4. Do they need to put up a bond to discourage bad behavior?
  5. Even if maker takes the median of the price feeds it is still possible to affect the system, especially if there is a large gap right in the middle. Why not sort them, throw away the top and bottom 25% and take a simple average of the remaining?
Robin_Hood_Jr
Check out our feeds here: https://makerdao.com/feeds/
There are currently 14 Oracles for the price of ETH.
Seeing as we’ve only recently got our governance portal up and running, these Oracles were not voted in. An active price feed was critical to prototyping Dai over the past year and a half whereas an active governance system was not.
Oracles are not currently compensated, though this will change in the near future. This is still an active area of research for our risk team.
Oracles do not currently need to put up stake, though again this is definitely something we are considering as part of our ongoing research.
Currently the median is working well. Changing this algorithm is rather trivial and MKR governance could decide at any time to change it.
It should be noted that many other prices are using our feeds to source the price of ETH including Augur and Gnosis.
There are a lot of changes coming to Oracles soon. Stay tuned for more documentation and posts describing the new system. If you want a sneak preview you can look for Mariano Conti’s talk on Oracles at ETH Berlin.

Has anyone created a leveraged token based on a CDP yet?
by sjalq

Has anyone done the following yet?

If we can seed CDPs to other contracts, then we can basically make tokens that give leveraged exposure to the Ether price.

IE we create a CDP, draw funds such that it has 200% collateralization. We then wrap the CDP in an ERC20 and sell the ERC20. The value of the ERC20 should then give a levered price exposure to Ether.

I guess the levered tokens can have names like ETH_MIN_100 if they will be closed at 100USD or ETH_MIN_50 if they close at 50USD.

How will real estate work in an MCDP? Either the theory, or in actuality.
by willchristiansen

Can someone either point me at an explanation of how these different types of collateral will be used in an MCDP or give me an ELI34-non-accountant? I’m really excited about the future of CDP’s and being able to use different forms of collateral, so I’m looking for solid info on this.

robika001
This will work the following way. I think on the short term some of the real estate funds will issue ERC20 tokens, that represent a portion in their real estate portfolio. This token will be fungible like any other ERC20 (or a newer standard) token on Ethereum. These will become MCD collaterals. (And will tremendously increase DAI supply, and thus MKR profits.)

The second stage could be when in some advanced countries will issue non-fungible tokens for real estate. This means that each piece of real estate can be represented and owned on the blockchain. These must be aggregated first by some on-the-chain real estate portfolio companies or simple smart contracts that enable to bring in only certain kind of real estate to create their own fungible tokens. Those can be used with MCD.

What is the biggest for Maker is that DAI, unlike competing centralized solutions that only enable fiat as a collateral, will use those tokens as collaterals. This is a huge advantage for MakerDAO. And this applies to everything that is not part of money supply: Real Estate, Bonds, Debt, and derivatives. This is something that many don’t realize as of yet: the potential supply of DAI is way greater than that of any centralized solution that can only handle fiat money.

Announcing the MakerDAO Core Community Development Initiative
MakerDAO

The ecosystem that has formed around MakerDAO is widely regarded as one of the best examples of what a healthy crypto community can be. Our stakeholders are smart, engaged, and civil while remaining appropriately critical. Other organizations have noted what a stand-out group our community is, and asked us to explain how we did it. While there are many answers to the question, only one of them really counts: show your community that it matters.

We knew from the beginning that smart, engaged people want to be treated like rational adults, not products or sales leads or cheerleaders. They want to know that they are contributing to a greater shared ideal and that their opinions and expertise can help the project succeed. They want to see that they are involved with a Foundation that will do things like change its very mandate based on their well-considered feedback or trust them to govern the system correctly.

Dash Core Software Version Number Change
Elizabeth Robuck

The purpose of this post is to share a change in version number for the next Dash Core software update.

Dash Evolution will include a series of major updates to the Dash payment network to improve usability of our system and expand the universe of possible use cases for Dash. In a big step towards that end, we are excited to share that we are approaching the release of several exciting protocol features such as Deterministic Masternode Lists and Special Transactions. Up until recently, we had been referring to this as Dash Core release 0.12.4. However, due to the magnitude of this software update and in keeping with proper semantic versioning practices, we have decided to change the release number to 0.13.0.

With this update our development team will take us many steps closer to Evolution than we had previously anticipated back when we first called it release 0.12.4. For example, the Deterministic Masternode List system will essentially guarantee that all nodes in the network can agree on the masternode list via on-chain data, avoiding the risks associated with inability to reach consensus. (This has not historically been an issue for the small quorums used for InstantSend, but limits uses of the system that require larger quorums.) We also want to convey to network actors that this is a major release with a mandatory update in order to remain on the network. READ MORE

Updated RAM Policy: 48 Hours as of 10 Oct 2018
EOS New York

EOS New York strives for transparency in all activities. On 29 June 2018 we released our original RAM purchase policy which can be found here. The policy was such that all RAM purchases, other than RAM purchased directly for supporting new account ID acquisitions, would be announced 7 days prior to the actual purchase.

On 10 Oct 2018 we are updating our policy to reduce this time to 48 hours. The reason for this is that, given that we are moving into working with dApp development teams directly, an urgent need for RAM may come up and we need to be more agile in order to support them.

FICO scores in the U.S. may be revised in coming months
Alchemy Coin

We are thrilled to hear news FICO scores in the U.S. may be revised in coming months. This is a boon for young borrowers, in particular, who are historically denied access to credit.

From the Wall St. Journal: “Credit scores for decades have been based mostly on borrowers’ payment histories. That is about to change. Fair Isaac Corp., creator of the widely used FICO credit score, plans to roll out a new scoring system in early 2019 that factors in how consumers manage the cash in their checking, savings & money-market accounts. It’s among the biggest shifts for credit reporting & the FICO scoring system, the bedrock of most consumer-lending decisions in the U.S. since the 1990s.”

CNBC had this to say: “The gold-standard in consumer lending decisions is about to get a major overhaul that could increase approvals for credit cards and personal loans. For decades, FICO scores were based mostly on consumers’ payment histories. But the new standard is designed to give people with dings on their credit histories a process to have their banking activity factored in as well, the Journal said. Those who don’t overdraw long-established accounts with at least several hundred dollars in them could see their credit scores go up under the new framework.” Alchemy Coin applauds the news. https://medium.com/alchemy-coin/fico-scores-in-the-u-s-may-be-revised-in-coming-months-18786ef2888f

#tether just destroyed 500m usdt. Which means someone cashed out $500m. It could be an exchange, institution or someone else.

“Over the course of the past week, Tether has redeemed a significant amount of USDT from the circulating supply of tokens. In line with this, Tether will destroy 500m USDT from the Tether treasury wallet and will leave the remaining USDT (approx 466m) in the wallet as a preparatory measures for future USDT issuances.”

Sean Davies
Probably bought up tether around 90–95 cents each too, and just cashed out at $1 each.

Is it possible for someone to get 100% ROI in 24 hours of trading competition? (since yesterday actually)

* BTC/USDT pair only
* No margin trading feature
* Paper trading
* No trading fee

Or it’s just cheating using the competition as a fake gimmick to attract people?

Ryan Gooding
It can be done margin trading, tho certainly not every day unless you’re some kind of freak
Sec Terus
What if the exchange has no margin trading, then is it cheating?
Samid Khan
well if you do the math at the end of the day and see there wasn’t even 100% ups and down in chart then it’s fake. and btc 100% without margin is literally impossible.
Cosmin Pop
Samid Khan depends on the amounts. It certainly isnt impossible. The rules did not mention no bots. So if there are no fees like on the rules I can get a bot to use $5 and do 1000 0.1% trades in a day.
Nathan Worsley
The issue with trading is it’s extremely difficult to measure skill. Almost impossible. Up until last year the markets were trending continually upwards, so almost everyone who simply brought crypto and avoided the super obvious scams was making profit. Fools got rich with no skills but many started to believe they knew what they were doing. Huge industries developed with signals groups, derivative products, margin trading, binary options, astrology-based trading, etc. Without a shred of empirical evidence many began to gamble with their life savings.
By the same token, whenever you gamble there’a a chance you’ll have a win. So I could enter your trading competition, pick randomly, and make 1000% ROI. But my ROI doesn’t actually tell you anything about my skill level.
The only true measure of skill is success over a period measured in decades. Over this level of time all the TA gurus and day traders dissapear, even professional traders at banks rarely last this long.
Ironically enough, the tried and true traders who do last this long (Warren Buffet, etc) tend to be hated by cryptocurrency enthusiasts. But like it or not, these are the only types of people on earth who have actually proven themselves to be competant traders.

RMT is a stellar token, if it gets up, will stellar gets up?

Donnie Mehrtens
Are you referring to RMT being listed on Stellarterm DEX?
Just because a token on an exchange increases in value; doesn’t mean it will have an effect on other tokens on that exchange, or the native token. The increased volume could have an overall positive affect on the exchange and maybe in turn increase the demand for XLM.
Hope that answers your question.

How are pot coins doing nowadays? Personally I don’t really see their value, unless a high-level CEO decides to embrace one and others follow suit. High Times chose an IPO against an ICO. Pot coins’ main purpose is to replace the industry’s use of the USD, right? What happens when it is legalized federally in the U.S. and companies can use banks?Do you know of any weed companies that use a coin as currency? What’s your pick and why? Tell me why I should hold some pot coins.

Personally, for crypto I’m converting 30% of my mining profits to BTC, 50% mining and holding ZEC for a speculative Coinbase listing, and 20% mining and holding ZEN to create Secure Nodes. I also have a spread of mutual funds and stocks, both short and long term.

If you are looking to capitalize on the marijuana industry, which is conservatively forecasted to grow by 300% within 4 years in the U.S. and Canada to $30 billion, I recommend that you diversify because now is the perfect time to buy into weed stocks.

There are “serious” talks between Coca-Cola, selling over a billion bottles of Coke every day, and Aurora Cannabis. The price saw an instant spike. Big players are moving in. Just wait until Phillip Morris decides to make a move.

The reason why I think now is the best time to diversify into weed stocks is because the market rallied with the Canada legalization. Canadian dispensaries sold out everywhere on the first day of legalization. In the past few days investors across the board, including myself, took profits. Most weed stocks are down 10–20%+, which is why I see a perfect window for jumping in. Tilray is another big player.

Tell me if you think weed coins are a better choice than weed stocks, or if you invest in both as well.

I just did the less sensible thing and bought a huge stack of VTHO. I figured that if VET runs VTHO will be right behind it.

I’m having a hard time finding good projects since discovering Vechain. It seems like they though of everything and always are 1+ step ahead.
