  • 02:51 Developers Release New Transaction Serialization Format - BOB

    BOB (Bitcoin OP_RETURN Bytecode) is a new transaction serialization format for dealing with Bitcoin transactions, especially OP_RETURNs. BOB is a new, modified version of TXO which adopts an abstract machine metaphor, where instructions are written on tapes made up of cells, where each cell contains a single atomic procedure call. It is a Bitcoin transaction serialization format which fundamentally stops seeing OP_RETURN data as just a dumb data feed, but as actual procedure calls in a virtual operating system.

  • 01:30 Gartner Vice President: Digital Currency Of Facebook And Walmart May Bring Unintended Consequences On Unbanked And Underbanked Customers

    Financial inclusion is not the main objective of Facebook and Walmart and each company's initiative (launch of digital currency) could have unintended consequences on unbanked and underbanked customers, according to the article by Christophe Uzureau, vice president at Gartner.
    For example, in the case of Libra, the reserve is expected to contain "a collection of low-volatility assets, including bank deposits and government securities in currencies from stable and reputable central banks." This is unlikely to include the assets native to some of the emerging markets that may lack a stable currency in the first place (and whose customers could in theory benefit the most from a new digital currency). And this has implications in terms of monetary policy. It will dilute the impact of the quantitative easing policy of a domestic central bank, as well as increase capital outflows. And in turn this will limit the amount of capital available for investments to support local infrastructure development, he said.

  • 00:28 Summa Partners With Blockchain Startup Keep To Create A Protocol For Using Bitcoin On Ethereum-Based Systems

    Summa co-founder James Prestwich wants to bridge the great divide: Bitcoin vs. Ethereum.
    Now his firm is teaming up with fellow blockchain startup Keep to launch the Cross-Chain Working Group, which aims to create a protocol for using Bitcoin on Ethereum-based systems.
    Specifically, the Bitcoin is deposited with a smart contract that requires multiple signatures to unlock funds. Key holders lock up crypto collateral, like Ether, which the depositor can seize if the holders misbehave. In the meantime, the depositor is essentially given a crypto equivalent of Ethereum-compatible tokens that represent the Bitcoin, called tBTC.
    The working group's goal is to launch an Ethereum-based tester App with access to Bitcoin this fall and a tBTCmainnet by Q4.

    Bearish:
    1. Marcelo280289: "Current trading path showing signs to break to the downside, unless a surge to the upside is realized. We failing to rally past the 21EMA, even if that is breached, we would need to blast past the 55EMA to register any bullish movement. Bull Targets: $10,500, $10,800, $11,500 so much confluence on the way up, we will likely not rally past that unless some magical volume pushes us past that. Bear Targets: $10,000, $9,700, $9,000, $8,500 (Unfilled CME gap) very strong resistance on the $10,000-$9,000 range, a clear pass of these range is needed for further lows."
    2. jack_hartmann: "I wanted to publish this idea to show that lower levels are still in play. Any break down of BTC (see my previous- shorter term- post below) could easily send the price back towards 6,000 USD. I have no reason to believe BTC would go lower than 6,000 USD at this time. However, we must still keep this in mind. **Notice**; however, BTC could go ape shit if it breaks above the top line. Aka, if we see Bitcoin going strongly above 12,000 USD in the coming month(s), this would be extremely bullish IMO. But we are showing signs of weakness. So, it is my opinion that BTC will go lower before it goes higher. "
    3. Mihir: "The pullback height hasn't been good enough though it was strong. My bias for the down fall continues. I see minor support near $9900. [Still, the upper boundary to be watched.]"
