Etheremon’s Co-Founder Jarvis Nguyen

Blockchain-based games have become a hot commodity in the cryptocurrency space. Ethereum-based CryptoKitties was the first game to take off on the market and since its inception, more and more games are being released. Etheremon is the latest game to be launched on the Ethereum blockchain. The idea of gaming on the blockchain is very new. The traditional game is controlled by a company and the game behavior can be changed easily by them. As a decentralized application, no one controls this game, and no one can take away your assets or cheat you in this world. It is immune to any outside influence as it’s guaranteed to execute only what the smart contracts were programmed to do. Moreover, because Ethereum runs on thousands of machines simultaneously, the services are provided with a 100% uptime guarantee. In Etheremon, all players share the same world. For example, there are only 195 Pangrass, so the maximum number of players that can have Pangrass at any particular time is 195. Users can also play with others via battle modes. It is similar to any online games, but there is no centralized server, all actions are done via Ethereum network. From those attributes, players can earn money from playing. Players can sell, lend their Etheremon to others, and as the resources are limited and transparent, there is a need for collecting them. It is similar to Bitcoin, there is a limit cap and no one controls it.

Tron Dogs mobile was just launched today and the Tron dogs community is going crazy. It was announced last week, that the mobile version would launch on the 10th of this month but it seems the launch is out a day early. Around the time that it was announced that the mobile version was close to launching, the CEO of game.com announced even bigger news in store for the game. He mentioned that you will be able to “design your dog.” What this actually means remains completely unclear but it is good news for those who have already purchased Tron Dogs. The more functionality of the game, the more users will want to play. From last week alone, the Tron Dogs Telegram community has grown by 100 members.

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.

Current Price: $26.79 USD
Website: http://bitcore.cc/
Type: Coin
Market Cap: $299,232,748 USD
Circulating Supply: 11,171,612 BTX
Total Supply: 16,798,550 BTX

Blockchain-Friendly Arizona Moves to Allow Bitcoin Tax Payments

Lawmakers in Arizona, a blockchain friendly state, have proposed allowing residents to pay their taxes in bitcoin. State Rep. Jeff Weninger, a co-sponsor for the bill, which the senate finance committee has already passed, said the measure will send a signal to the U.S. and possibly worldwide that Arizona is a place for blockchain and digital currency. The law would enable the ease of being able to pay taxes in the middle of the night or while at home watching TV, Wininger said. In a few years, he said the issue won’t even be a question.

Bosch Invests in IOTA, Outlines Blockchain Plans

Bosch is a 131-year-old company, yet it’s on the cutting edge of crypto and IOTA’s tangle-style platform. Clearly, the firm desires to go deeper into data rather than stick to its old business model and profit from hardware. Selling data is the future and Bosch views IOTA and autonomous cars as a great way to collect micropayments and information. Add this to the fact the city of Taipai, South Korea is set to use IOTA to turn the city into an app-driven smart city. Its obvious IOTA is really making some waves. IOTA’s data marketplace has been in the making since 2015. Around the same time, IBM spent $2 billion to acquire the Weather Company. The sole reason for the purchase was to get access to data.
