Bitcoin (BTC)

  • While the journey of mass adoption continues, Thailand plays an important role in easing mass adoption and showing its trust for bitcoin (BTC). In a very recent, Thailand’s SEC approved bitcoin (BTC) and, at the same time, banned bitcoin cash (BCH), litecoin (LTC) and ethereum classic (ETC).
  • Square, a mobile payment company, was founded by Jack Dorsey who is also the co-founder of Twitter.

  • Crypto enthusiasts are aware of the smallest bitcoin (BTC) unit, satoshi. It is equivalent to one hundred millionth of a bitcoin (BTC) i.e 0.00000001 BTC. A post trending over the subreddit of bitcoin (BTC) was the sign and logic for representing satoshi. It was suggested that S and @ combined to form sat.

Ethereum (ETC)

  • Finally, after a setback, ethereum has successfully upgraded to a new version known as Constantinople. Apart from improving security and speed aspects, Constantinople paves way for another upgrade, Casper.
