Searching For The Ultimate Wallet

It’s no secret that the UI/UX (User Interface/User Experience) in crypto often leaves some things to be desired, especially for newcomers. People have been speaking about the ‘killer app’ for many years, but it’s not a certainty yet. A prime case for a killer app would be a universal wallet, one that holds any cryptocurrency. But the ongoing scenario is for every single user to have as various wallets as they need to hold their growing collection of coins and tokens. This has been and continues to be a barrier to adoption. For newcomers, there are basic technical barriers such as understanding what wallets are and how they work. Multiple wallets just make the problem worse. Key management is a serious issue, even for crypto veterans. The more keys and wallets we nee...

Copy & Pasting A Wallet Address Could Mean Bye Bye Bitcoin

A new report out by Naked Security, a blog produced by the cybersecurity firm Sophos has surfaced which discusses how certain malware on your machine could be editing copy and pasted wallet addresses for the financial gain of others. Let me set the scene. You’re about to purchase some Bitcoin, and need to enter the receiving address. You copy the address from a document onto your clipboard, ready to paste the address into the box ready for the Bitcoin to be sent. Of course, by copy and pasting, you can be sure you don’t miss a letter or a digit and thus, can be sure that you enter the correct address. However, behind the scenes you have installed a malicious programme that can access your clipboard. The programme is able to read your address, set up a new wallet at a similar address and th...

Why Electrum Pro Is Stealing Your Bitcoins

Electrum Pro is not to be confused with Electrum; the popular Bitcoin wallet. Electrum Pro is quite the opposite – a malicious knock off who are stealing investors Bitcoin, and Electrum have released proof that this is the case. Electrum Pro has instead been designed with malware to hijack private seed keys, and is taking advantage of the name, which has a good reputation. The platform is urging investors to be very careful not to get confused between the two. Since Electrum was made aware of its malicious counterpart, the development team have been doing all they can to alert people to the possibility that the supposed Pro version is in fact a face.

More Than $140,000,000 Bitcoin Moved From Mt. Gox Wallets

More than $140,000,000 worth of Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash saw themselves being moved from Mt. Gox’s cold wallets this past Thursday. A very big move that can be a cause for concern for the valuation of Bitcoin. The world of cryptocurrencies has seen a lot of good times and plenty of bad. During the time that regulatory bodies just shrugged their shoulders when they heard of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies but they did manage to bat an eye brow or two, the trading of cryptocurrencies globally was rampant. From the very short time of half a decade between 2009 and 2014, Bitcoin saw a sharp rise in popularity and it became a multimillion dollar ecosystem. The cryptocurrency exchanges operating at the time were very few in number and one of them Mt. Gox based in Japan was the most popular cr...

Rejoice! The Crypto Daily Crypto Refresh is back! Every Friday we like to sit down and trawl through the news to bring you a concise version of events. As ever, we have had a fantastic week. The markets have taken a tumble after a great start, but now all seems back to normal. The news has been hot and we have been all over it. Here’s a quick reminder of our adventures this week- Verge PornHub Announcement, Damage control has failed Last week we saw Verge announce their new highly anticipated partners. The announcement of PornHub however totally flunked, with the community left feeling a little flaccid to say the least (honestly, no pun intended). Since the announcement, Verge has made very little progress and still continues to hang around a less than impressive value of $0.073, given the...
