Cryptocurrency Watch : Bitcore

Bitcore (BTX)

Bitcore (BTX) is a cryptocurrency that is geared towards a payment system. It solves a lot of the issues that other coins like for example Bitcoin have. Most importantly Bitcore is miles ahead in regards of scaling. Bitcore was created in April 2017 by the talented developers of BitSend (BSD). With Bitcore we created a new blockchain, this means that our blockchain is super-tiny with currently less than 400 MB in size unlike the blockchains of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold, Bitcoin Diamond and Super Bitcoin which all are 135 GB+ at the moment. We created a snapshot of the Bitcoin blockchain and copied over 5 million balances from the Bitcoin chain to the Bitcore chain, giving each user that had 0.01 BTC on the snapshot date (2nd of November 2017) FREE Bitcore in the ratio of 1 BTC to 0.5 BTX.

New York Wants a Piece of the Ever Growing Bitcoin Mining

The New York Power Authority has approved the allocation of 15,000 kilowatts of hydroelectric power to a new bitcoin mining venture by Coinmint, the North Country Data Center Corp (NCDC), pending the approval of a contract within a year. Coinmint, which currently operates a bitcoin mining facility in Plattsburgh, expects that the cryptocurrency market will continue to grow worldwide and thus seeks to expand its business to a second facility. According to the proposal plan, the power allocation would support capital investment of at least $165 million and the creation of 150 new jobs in connection with the proposed project. The plan will involve renovating a former metal smelting facility in Massena, and the installation and operation of up to 180,000 specialized bitcoin mining systems within two years. Once complete and fully operational, the NCDC expects to handle 15 percent of the global cryptocurrency business.
