Opera Has Become the First Browser to Implement a Cryptocurrency Wallet

opera cryptowallet

Opera, which occupies the 3rd position in the rating of the best browsers, can boast of a lot of unique features. It has an integrated ad-block, few plugins, high speed of operations. Over 350 million people use it on a daily basis. This time the list of its advantages was replenished with a new cool upgrade.

This browser is not a newbie in the cryptocurrency world. It has already launched special software which protects the devices from unauthorized mining processes.

This time Opera is launching a new version of its browser which has an incorporated cryptocurrency wallet. The browser is not yet available publicly, since it is only a beta (closed) version.

One of Opera’s representatives commented on the launch by saying:

Our hope is that this will accelerate the transition of cryptocurrencies from speculation and investment to being used for actual payments and transactions in our users’ daily lives.

The wallet will be well-protected from possible security breaches, the token accrual will be conducted in an automatic mode. The developers are currently conducting a thorough check of the system, looking for and fixing bugs.

McAfee Birthday Collection: Top-5 Eccentric Statements, Promises, Innovations and Scandals

john mcafee birthday compilation

The editorial board of The Coin Shark wishes happy birthday to the most unconventional crypto personality John McAfee and hopes he will thrive and please the crypto community for many more years.

For this occasion we decided to compile the loudest things that McAfee has said or done this year.

1. There is no doubt that the wildest promise of John McAfee remains his infamous claim about the price of Bitcoin in 2020. The interesting part is, of course, related to the physical tortures that McAfee is ready to face if his predictions turn out to be wrong.

2. Another loud claim of McAfee was his firm intention to run for presidency during the next election. Given the low levels of popularity that the current US President is coping with, we believe that anything might happen at this point. Politics aside, no doubt that the crypto world will be thrilled to have such a president.  

3. We could not leave out the epic with McAfee’s crypto wallet Bitfi. Was it really hacked? Was McAfee planning to give such a pricy award? We don’t know. However, what we do know is that the story brought a whole lot of attention to the wallet, so maybe it was an ultimate goal in the first place.

4. The CoinMarketCap should beware, because John McAfee is on its toes. His own site with market capitalization and cryptocurrency exchange rates is already functioning.

5. Last, but certainly not least comes the McAfee crypto challenge. Brilliant minds with innovative crypto solutions can join his team to improve and develop the crypto world together.

Anyway, even if John McAfee does not eat any parts of his body or loses the run for presidency, he will always remain one of the brightest stars of the crypto universe. Happy birthday, John!

A Bitcoin Challenge Started Out in China: 21 Days With 0.21 BTC. Why Was It Stopped After Just 3 Days?

bitcoin challenge in china

We all have seen these shows where a person needs to survive a certain period of time with a limited amount of money in different locations. The Chinese TV decided to take it even further and add a new twist to the story.

A girl named He You Bing took up a challenge, during which she had to survive 3 weeks only having 0.21 BTC (approximately 1300 USD). That was all the money she had for food, dwelling and satisfying basic needs.

Considering the prices in China and also the fact that He You Bing carried out the challenge in megalopolises like Shanghai and Shenzhen (which are even pricier), it would seem quite an impossible task to complete.

However, if we think of the situation with cryptocurrency in China, here came another trouble for the girl, which was way more serious than the little amount of money.

He You Bing simply couldn’t find establishments that accepted BTC as a means of payment. She went from place to place, but most of the times very few people even knew about Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general, let alone accepted it. As a result, she had to eat wild fruits from the trees, free samples from shops and sleep in 24/7 cafes.

By the end of the 3rd day the challenge had to be stopped, and He You Bing had to be taken to the hospital due to starvation symptoms – the girl was on the verge of losing consciousness.

However, she reached ones of her goal – the challenge attracted attention of the public, thus, raising cryptocurrency awareness in China. Hopefully, next time the girl will choose less radical methods to do so.

App Store Added a New Crypto Wallet for Digital Collectibles

crypto wallet

Unlike Google Play Market which removed Bitpay and Bitcoin.com from its app list, Apple Store decided to add a new crypto wallet, called Vault, which is aimed at storing different digital collectibles and non-fungible tokens.

This wallet conforms to all the strict requirements of Apple Inc. adopted in early June. The co-founder of this startup,  John Egan, stated that he wanted to create a project that can be used by everyday users, not only by CA. He planned to make the wallet more about its functions than trading, i.e. there will not any information about token sales, etc.

Egan even compared the work of Vault to the way iOS on iPhone works. As the developers want to create an ecosystem based on blockchain technology where users can share and use apps, like they do on iPhones.

We would like to remind you

BitPay and Bitcoin.com Have Been Removed from Google Play

bitpay and bitcoin com removed from google play

BitPay wallet application that provides Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash payment processing services to traders has been removed from the Google Play Market without any warnings from developers.

Representatives of BitPay did not provide updates and did not announce about any technical work, so this decision was quite unexpected for the company.

Also, users of Reddit report that the application of a company providing Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash purchase/sale services – Bitcoin.com – has disappeared from Google Play.

It is quite a strange situation, because both applications had an average rating of 4.5 stars, which indicates a fairly high degree of confidence in customer service. Although, as for Bitcoin.com, there have been numerous cases recently when users were asked to give negative rating to this application and write a corresponding comment.

The CEO of Bitcoin.com, Roger Ver accused the new Google Play policies of the incident.

Google told us that it was because they no longer allow cryptocurrency mining apps,” wrote Ver. “I have no idea how they came under the impression that our wallet is a mining app.
