China's Great Firewall, used by the government to regulate access to foreign internet sites, has blocked one of the most popular sources of ethereum blockchain data.⠀
As of Tuesday, etherscan.io, one of the longest-running and most widely used ethereum block explorers, was inaccessible from IP addresses inside mainland China, based on tests performed locally.⠀
The change appears to be recent. According to Greatfire.org, which compiles and monitors a database of sites that are blocked inside China, etherscan.io was still accessible with "no censorship detected" as of Aug. 18, 2019. ⠀
But Greatfire.org's scanning record shows etherscan.io has become 100 percent blocked since at least Oct. 30, rendering it inaccessible from inside China unless via a virtual private network (VPN).⠀
This is likely the first known case of a blockchain explorer becoming an internet firewall target and puts etherscan.io in the company of such blocked information and social media sites as Google, Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit. ⠀

Many day-traders use centralized exchanges and online brokerage firms to trade stocks and index funds. As a rule, having put $ 25,000 in his cash account, a trader can bypass the regulatory rule on the day trading strategy and immediately start actively trading. In addition, the presence of a margin account will also allow an individual investor to take short positions and buy commodity resources and futures.
If we talk about crypto trading, then retail investors have different opportunities for trading digital assets. With a market capitalization of $ 200 billion, there are more than 200 cryptocurrency exchanges, including cryptocurrency dark pools and traditional exchanges with Bitcoin-oriented securities. To understand how and where a retail investor can acquire digital assets, we compare the two most popular types of cryptocurrency exchanges available today in the cryptocurrency space.
CEX, or centralized exchanges
What is the difference between centralized and decentralized cryptocurrency exchanges? Investors who first think about trading cryptocurrency usually resort to centralized exchanges. Like traditional online brokerage firms and exchanges, many centralized crypto-exchanges offer similar opportunities for depositing funds, margin trading, opening short positions and trading pairs of crypto / crypto or fiat / crypto. Buyers and sellers trust an intermediary to help them store funds and conduct transactions, or to provide security and monitoring.
The largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world in terms of adjusted trading volume are, as a rule, centralized exchanges (Binance, Bitmax, OKEx, etc. - see CoinMarketcap). In addition to volume and liquidity, CEX usually have a well-designed system that automates the work of customers. Unlike using a digital wallet, where there is a risk of forgetting your private key, centralized exchanges can guarantee the safety of client funds and help investors regain access to their capital.

People often compartmentalize a task as to whether or not it’s something they could do. So when someone casts doubt on your endeavor it’s often under the guise that it’s something too difficult or impossible to do but in reality is simply their failure to understand.
A failure that doesn’t take into account that you are not them, that your path and theirs are different and as such you may be more uniquely prepared and tasked to achieve something they cannot even fathom.
Maybe, I’m like an Ali, Kobe or Michael Jordan in the sense that I embrace negativity and doubt; to simply show that yes it is I, it will be done and I’m the one doing what you so thought was impossible to be done because I was blessed to do so; nothing else!
It is time and Yes, one person can make a difference, let us all rise together!

Bitcoin prices since the previous review is staying in the narrow trading range. Buyers still do not have enough strength to break through the resistance, located at the level of 7400-7500. Now prices are below the specified range. And if in the current situation it is possible to break through these levels on an impulse, this will open the way to 8200, and then to 9000. In the opposite situation, the closest support is located at the round level of 7000.
SUPPORT: 7000, 6200, 5300
RESISTANCE: 7400-7500, 7900,8200, 8800, 9400,10300, 11000, 11300, 12000
Ethereum quotes from the last review stopped in a narrow trading range and until the situation was resolved neither in favor of sellers, nor in favor of buyers. The next serious level is 163-174. Below - 132-135.
Japanese holding company SoftBank has released a digital currency payment card which can be used for both fiat and digital assets.
In a press release published yesterday, the multinational conglomerate – which has holdings in Uber and Alibaba – said the new ‘SoftBank Card’, or ‘SBC Wallet Card’, will allow users to store and spend a range of digital assets.
The card will be initially available in Japanese markets and will allow users to spend their digital assets with 10,000 merchants across Japan.
SoftBank states that the SBC card will “improve the shortcomings of traditional wallets by providing better security and access”. SoftBank isn’t planning on launching another standard plastic debit card.
Instead, the new SBC cards will feature a paper-thin smart LED screen which shows users their balance in real time, powered by a revolutionary micro-battery which can last for up to three years.
Although SoftBank hasn’t revealed which digital currencies it will be supporting from launch, SBC card holders can use the card as a hot or cold cryptocurrency wallet, with a built in WiFi receiver to connect the card’s hot wallet functionality.
Once the wallet is disconnected, it serves as cold storage much like a traditional Trezor or Ledger wallet. At the same time, users will be able to link the card with their bank accounts in order to spend fiat.
The card will also have its own dedicated mobile app, which will let users switch between fiat and cryptocurrency payments easily.
SoftBank has shown enthusiasm for blockchain technology before, building a peer-to-peer payments platform in September 2018 to allow users to make fiat payments via a mobile blockchain network.

According to recent reports, Coinbase has a whopping 966,230 Bitcoin in its cold wallet. The exchange is increasingly becoming like a ‘bank’ which stores a growing number of deposited cryptocurrency assets.
How much cryptocurrency does each exchange hold in its cold wallet? With Coinbase leading the world in being the largest firm by crypto-assets, the numbers will probably shock you.
Coinbase leads the pack by a large margin in its cryptocurrency holdings.
The cryptocurrency exchange giant holds in Bitcoin alone around 966,230 BTC which amounts to around $7.1B. These crypto-assets are all under Coinbase’s custodial services. Although it does not have direct access to these assets since it is not owned by the exchange, it nonetheless still holds the private keys.
Other exchanges lag behind Coinbase, but still have sizeable cold wallets from its depositors and own funds.
Depending on how you look at it, you may view this as a failure of proper decentralization. In the case of a security breach, there are massive amounts of holdings being managed by just a handle of exchanges and entities. Some have commented that this development is evidence of exchanges becoming like ‘banks,’ and represents a serious problem in the industry.
Still, with some exchanges moving towards decentralization, this may soon not be a problem for long. Binance unveiled its decentralized exchange this year and plans to fully transition to it in due time. Coinbase, on the other hand, has not committed to such decentralized dreams and instead plans to continue operating as it has. So, these assets may remain under the management of a few central entities for some time, thereby putting a growing portion of crypto-assets at potentially serious risk.
While the cryptocurrency space has always prided itself on ‘being one’s own bank,’ the fact that users are increasingly relying on exchanges to store their crypto-assets tells a different story.
The CEO of PayPal, one of the world’s largest and most established online payment processors, has revealed in an interview that he owns Bitcoin and no other cryptocurrencies. He also talked about Libra and why his company decides to withdraw from the project.
In a recent interview with Fortune, the CEO of PayPal, Dan Schulman, shared his views on cryptocurrencies and revealed interesting insights about the work his company is doing in the field.
He said that there is a lot of promise in blockchain technologies and that PayPal finds it intriguing. However, he also reiterated that today’s existing systems are already “pretty efficient”, and, as such, the benefits of blockchain that they find intriguing revolve more around identity than efficiency.
Furthermore, he also shared that there hasn’t been a lot of demand for cryptocurrencies by merchants who use PayPal because of the high volatility. Still, he believes it’s a very interesting idea. “That doesn’t mean that I don’t think crypto is an interesting idea and that people are trading it quite a bit. It’s more commodity-like than it is cash-like right now. But you can think of use cases in different countries and different places where it can be more stable than the alternatives.” When asked if he, personally, owned any cryptocurrencies, Schulman admitted that he owned Bitcoin – and only Bitcoin.
As CryptoPotato reported earlier, PayPal was one of the first companies to leave the Libra Association. Schulman shared some interesting insights on the matter.
According to him, when the head of Libra, David Marcus, first pitched the idea of Libra to PayPal, it was something that the company thought was very interesting and promising. However, as they did further research, they found out that there is a lot that needs to happen for it to see daylight. Moreover, Schulman also said that PayPal’s very own roadmap requires a lot of focus and that it made more sense to channel its resources in their own direction.
