Despite the security of the blockchain, the crypto world is full of reports of exchane hacks and currency thefts. We offer a list of the most famous frauds in this area.

1.Bankruptcy of Mt.Gox Exchange

In 2013, Mt.Gox exchange performed about 50% of all Bitcoin transactions, but in the spring of 2014 more than 850,000 Bitcoins disappeared from the accounts of the exchange’s clients. This led to a trading halt and then to the bankruptcy of Mt.Gox. At first, the reason for the incident was called fraudulent actions of the management of the exchange, but later it turned out that the exchange was hacked…

The news of the Cryptoworld is a mention of numerous names of people whose role in the development of the industry is not always understandable.

Today we present to you the rating of people who are of the greatest importance for the Cryptoworld.

1. Vitalik Buterin

Vitalik Buterin is a 25-year-old native of Russia who created a blockchain-platform Ethereum. Thanks to this idea in 2014, Vitalik managed to bypass Mark Zuckerberg and…


  1. Data storage.

The modern approach to storage of personal data (photos, video or text) comes to placing them on cloud service of one of large IT-companies. However, this is unsafe because any security breach in the service will allow hackers to change or steal your data. In the case of the blockchain, everything looks different. Your data is distributed across the network, stored simultaneously on multiple nodes. You only have access to the data. This makes any undesirable change of information impossible, as it is necessary to falsify data on all nodes at the same time. Accordingly, theft under such…


Blockchain today is so popular that people are trying to implement it everywhere and in everything. Sometimes it really improves the original properties of the product, but there is often nothing left but questions. Let’s take a look at what products have recently been trying to implement blockchain technology.

Mobile phone on Blockchain

In January 2019, the company HTC finally started selling its phone Exodus, which uses blockchain. The main difference of this telephony from ordinary smart phone is that it functions on the same Exodus blockchain and has a built-in cryptocurrency purse.

Large crypto-investors often have to move between cities, and then countries. It is of course, faster and more convenient to do this with the help of airplanes. Especially large investors use the services of private air carriers. However, it doesn’t mean just to pay a lot of money. You need to book a plane beforehand, sign a lot of papers and use as many people as possible to coordinate all flight details. Why so far there is no application that allows, like Uber, to find and order a plane for the near future in one click? …


Despite the fact that the prices of basic cryptocurrency are on the bottom (if it is reached), and most cryptoenthusiasts say about the unprofitability of mining, but there are still people for whom life without cryptocurrency mining is impossible. Using new, non-standard approaches and algorithms, they try to postpone the decline of this type of business. This time in the field of our view there is the project Bither, working in this area.

So let’s take a look at the estimations that were given to it by the most popular rating agencies. The project team received the highest number of…


Gambling is banned in many countries. Some of them have separate areas for gambling. When people enter the casino, everything is connected with the lack of self-control, willpower and simply their detachment from reality. In addition, in some religions, gambling is considered as a sin. However, censorship does not apply to your sins in the network. Here everyone is a judge and a Watchman. This is what the creators of various online casinos use. Despite the fact that users there are often cheated, and it is impossible to prove the independence of your result, of course, people continue to “pour”…


Are private money transmissions safe to other countries?

The most interesting thing is that few people think about it. Although, in fact people do not particularly want to do that.

A trivial example: you want to make a transfer to your child’s Visa card via the mobile application of your bank. For you it is easy to do this, but when your child uses the systems of other countries’ banks, how a bank of another country with another ecosystem realizes the amount of money your child has? And how has the child got them? This is where interbank agents appear…


Last week we added 17 ICOs from various business areas to the base. Each of them has its pros and cons, but the best estimation was given to a project called Mindsync, whose team works in the field of business services.

Out of the 14 rating agencies that we use to calculate the weighted average rating, the project has been estimated by only one-ICOholder. Its experts gave the project rather high estimations practically on all indicators. ICO Profile was rated them in 4.54 points out of 5. The potential of Mindsync is also quite high — 4.64 out of 5…
