BNB Chain NFT Support Added to OpenSea

    OpenSea – the world’s largest NFT marketplace – is bringing NFTs based on BNB Chain to its platform.  The network’s collectibles will soon be available for listing and sale on OpenSea’s standard core marketplace.  OpenSea Meets BNB Chain Per a press release shared with CryptoPotato, OpenSea’s Seaport protocol will launch BNB Chain starting in Q4 2022. Benefits to BNB NFT creators will include real-time payouts, creator payouts, collections management, and other things.  “The integration will bring a large number of creators into the wider system, as well as empower the creators and NFT initiatives inside the BNB Chain ecosystem,” said BNB Chain Investment Director Gwendolyn Regina on the partnership.  BNB Chain is currently the largest smart contract blockchain in the world based on daily active users. However, the network has seen relatively low NFT trading volume compared to competing networks, being outcompeted by the likes of Ethereum and Solana by orders of magnitude.  That said, BNB Chain also boasts much lower fees than Ethereum, removing burdensome costs for NFT users. According to BNB Chain, this will make signature confirmation actions easier to see and allow users to initialize their accounts for free.  Jeremy Fine, Head of Business and Corporate Development at OpenSea, said the BNB Chain integration will give everyone a better experience on the platform. “This update will make it s... read More

The company added: Google Cloud is working with [Solana] to bring Blockchain Node Engine to the Solana chain next year, so it will be easy for anyone to launch a dedicated Solana node in the cloud. In addition to bringing Blockchain Node Engine support to Solana, Google Cloud will be indexing the Solana blockchain and bringing the data to “Big Query” next year. The goal is to “make it easier for the Solana developer ecosystem to access historical data.” Solana’s native token solana (SOL) jumped in value on the announcement and SOL is up 7.... read More



Major South African Supermarket Chain Accepts Bitcoin Payments (Report)

    One of the largest supermarket chains in South Africa - Pick n Pay - reportedly enabled customers to settle their bills in cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin. The offering covers 39 of the company's stores located across the country. The National Children's Advocacy Center also hopped on the bandwagon, allowing people to donate digital assets. The Latest to Catch the Wave Pick n Pay hinted about the new payment option months ago when it trialed it in ten of its stores. According to a recent coverage, the service is now live and is extended to a total of 39 shops. The company partnered with Electrum and CryptoConvert to embrace the asset class. Clients can pay their grocery bills using the Bitcoin Lightning at the till point, the firm explained: 'The transaction is as easy and secure as swiping a debit or credit card. Customers scan a QR code from the app and accept the rand conversion rate on their smartphone at the time of the transaction. The service fee for each transaction is minimal, costing the customer on average 70c, and takes less than 30 seconds.' Carel van Wyk - Founder of CryptoConvert - argued that crypto payments are still in their 'infancy' in South Africa. However, cryptocurrencies have become highly popular among the local population, and similar moves could fuel the future progress of the domestic monetary network. Another organization that embraced crypto as a means of settlement is the National Children's Advocacy Center. It joined forces with 'Giving-Blo... read More



Binance Launches Oracle Network for BNB Chain Ecosystem

    On Oct. 26, crypto giant Binance announced Binance Oracle, a new service that will source, verify, and feed off-chain data to smart contracts running on the BNB Chain. The company claims that the Oracles will provide a “more reliable, secure, and accurate data sourcing solution for smart contracts.” The new service, which launches this month, will enable existing Web3 dApps and BNB Chain partners to access oracle data sources. The company confirmed that more than ten projects had already integrated with the Binance Oracle network.

Chainlink is currently the industry standard provider for decentralized data oracles, and its community has already started to pick holes in Binance’s offering. On Oct. 27, ‘ChainLinkGod’ questioned why anyone would launch a centralized price oracle in 2022, adding: “Docs and marketing try to make it *seem decentralized* but data is sourced and signed by Binance themselves. Introducing a single point of failure to dApps and putting user funds at risk,” Binance stated that its oracle service will initially support index prices for the most popular digital assets, with the data being sourced from several centralized exchanges. Furthermore, it will utilize an in-house Threshold Signature Scheme which signs on individual data feeds to prevent sin... read More

    Changpeng Zhao - CEO of Binance - revealed that the National Bank of the Republic of Kazakhstan will integrate its central bank digital currency (CBDC) into BNB Chain. The firm has strengthened its presence in the Central Asian country lately. The local regulator AIFC Financial Services Authority (AFSA) allowed it to operate a digital asset platform and provide custodial services to Kazakhstani consumers.

An Unknown Miner Commands More Than 51% of BSV's Hashpower, Consecutive ...

    A single miner has managed to overtake a large portion of the Bitcoinsv (Bitcoin Satoshi's Vision) blockchain capturing more than 80% of the hashrate on October 17. Today, the unknown miner's hashpower commands around 54% of the Bitcoinsv's computational power and during the last seven days, the stealth miner captured 64.5%.Unknown Hashpower Captured 64% of the Bitcoinsv Chain During the Past 7 Days, Empty BSV Blocks Renders Chain Useless at Times Bitcoinsv (BSV) has been dealing with an unknown miner trolling the project by mining empty blocks, and capturing a great majority of hashpower. Statistics from Coin Dance indicate that the miner captured 80% of the hashrate between October 17 and 18, 2022. Interestingly, the unknown miner took over the blockchain's hashrate during the defamation trial between Craig Wright, the man who claims to be Satoshi Nakamoto, and the pseudonymous Bitcoiner Hodlonaut. Wright lost the lawsuit and Hodlonaut was acquitted of all claims related to the defamation case. The self-proclaimed Satoshi, otherwise known as Craig Wright, was also ordered to pay $348,257 to compensate Hodlonaut's court expenses. While the court case was not yet decided, the unknown miner ramped up its hashrate efforts a few days before the lawsuit ended. Instead of mining blocks with tens of thousands of transactions, the miner chose to mine near-empty blocks making the blockchain unusable for long periods of time. The BSV miner leverages the BSV address '1KPST' and to dat... read More



Aptos (APT), a Famous Public Chain with Meta Background, Now Listed on M...

    [PRESS RELEASE - Please Read Disclaimer] October 19, 2022 - The latest news from Aptos indicates that it will launch the mainnet in the near future. At the same time, its mainnet token APT was announced by major mainstream exchanges before it was in circulation. The cryptocurrency trading platform MEXC listed the Aptos mainnet token APT at 00:45 on October 19 (UTC). It is the world's first trading platform for Aptos. The Aptos team will build its new Layer 1 blockchain based on the original Libra whitepaper. However, unlike Libra, the project will focus not on cross-border payments but on smart contracts. Different from the current public chain such as Ethereum, Aptos inherits the underlying technical specifications of the Diem project, uses Move programming language and BFT consensus protocol, aiming to build a more scalable blockchain to meet the needs of billions of users and large enterprise customers, so as to carry out the storage and transaction of crypto assets in a convenient way. Aptos's development builds partly on technology that has been publicly developed at Diem over the past three years. The Move language is a brand-new development language focusing on the blockchain's security, scalability, and upgradeability. Earlier, Aptos stated in its medium that the original Diem team would try to restart the project in the form of Aptos, after Meta confirmed the sale of Diem-related assets. Currently, representatives of new public chains using the Move language include... read More



The Dacxi Chain Reviewed: Meet the Tokenized Crowdfunding Network Coming...

    Cryptocurrencies are no longer a niche product segmented in a distant industry popular only among cypherpunks and tech aficionados. They’ve become mainstream. Largely due to their explosion in prices during the 2021 bull run, Bitcoin famously topped $69,000, they’ve cemented their place in the world of fintech. However, now more than ever, the industry needs to prove its worth and separate investment opportunities from speculation. At a time when regulators turn their sights to crypto, the space needs clear-cut solutions that allow retail (and institutional) investors to clearly differentiate. Dacxi Chain brings forward the first-ever global tokenized crowdfunding ecosystem designed to do just that. It creates a global pool of investors and connects them with visionary business people who require funding to take their innovative products and services to the next level. The Dacxi Chain uses blockchain tokenization technology to create digital versions of company shares, making the process quick, seamless, cost-efficient, and – importantly – genuinely global. It’s powered by its own native cryptocurrency, Dacxi Coin. What Problems Does Crowdfunding Face Today? Crowdfunding was a strong concept with great promise. But it never reached the wild heights it aimed for. It was never eventuated as a legitimate way for investors to profit and entrepreneurs to gain funding. Largely, it was an issue of scale. The current crowdfunding system has lon... read More



The BNB Smart Chain Hard Fork Tomorrow: What You Need to Know

    The BNB Smart Chain will go through a hard fork tomorrow. The upgrade will take place at around 08:00 AM (UTC) at block height 22,107,423. The changes are aimed at mitigating the cross-chain infrastructure between the Beacon Chain and the Smar Chain in an attempt to re-enable the cross-chain back. What is the BNB Smart Chain Moran Hard Fork? According to a release on Github, the BNB Smart Chain will go through a hard fork tomorrow - October 12th. The upgrade is called Moran, and it represents a 'temporary urgent patch.' This release is a temporary urgent patch to mitigate the cross-chain infrastructure between Beacon Chain and Smart Chain so that the cross-chain can be re-enabled back. It is a hard fork release for both testnet and mainnet. The changes that Moran will bring to the network include a fix of the vulnerability in 'the iavl hash check,' intended to eventually migrate it to ICS23 specifications. Additionally, it will introduce a block header in the sequence check in the CrossChain Contract.  Last but not least, the hard fork will also make the relater whitelisted to the genesis candidates. The Github entry also specifies that there will be further Binance Chain Evolution Proposals (BEPs) on how to define the candidates for the relayer. What To Do? Regular users needn't do anything. However, node operators will have to take a few steps. First, they would have to download the binary contained in the Github entry. After that, they would have to stop the... read More



The Dacxi Chain Unveiled as the World's First Global Equity Crowdfunding...

    PRESS RELEASE. The world’s first blockchain-based global equity crowdfunding network – the Dacxi Chain – has been unveiled. The Dacxi Chain is a unique global ecosystem that creates digital tokenized versions of company shares, which can then be quickly and easily bought and sold all over the world. Connecting investors, entrepreneurs and deal makers from across the globe. A singularly complex technical challenge, the Dacxi Chain has taken the company’s tech team four years to develop. The advanced technical features within Dacxi Chain are built on the unique capabilities of blockchain. Dacxi CEO Ian Lowe says, “When we set out to create a global ecosystem to deliver thousands of funding deals to hundreds of thousands of investors around the world, there are many significant problems to solve. Emphatically, blockchain is the path to unlocking the limitless potential of equity crowdfunding.” The Dacxi Chain ecosystem must be equipped to deal with tokenized assets, cryptocurrency-based investments from multi-language and multi-currency investor pools, and a range of different regulatory environments. As such, the Dacxi Chain’s development has required the origination and development of a series of new technological processes. Fernando Pacheco, Dacxi Chain’s Chief Product Officer says, “The Dacxi Chain aggregates investor pools drawn from multiple territories around the world, and connects them to entrepreneurs who have via... read More



BNB Chain to Conduct Governance Votes on What to Do With the Stolen Fund...

    After losing millions of dollars worth of assets in a cross-chain hack, the team behind BNB Chain - formerly Binance Smart Chain (BSC) - plans to conduct on-chain governance votes to determine what to do with the stolen funds.  Recall that BNB Chain temporarily halted all network operations after an attacker exploited a vulnerability on the BSC Token Hub cross-chain bridge to siphon two million BNB valued at $600 million. BNB Chain Hacker Absconds With $100M  The hacker still had about $400 worth of assets on the network before the suspension, which made it impossible for them to transfer the funds to other chains.  According to reports, the attacker was able to exit with around $70 million to $80 million across several networks. However, cyber security firm Hackenclub said the perpetrator made away with $110 million through Fantom, Ethereum, and Polygon.  Shortly after resuming network operations, the BSC team announced plans to hold governance votes on four critical decisions relating to the hack, including bounties for future attacks.   The Way Forward In the coming days, an upgrade on the BNB Beacon Chain (BEP2) will allow the network validators to vote on what will be done with the stolen funds, whether they will be frozen or not, or “auto-burn” them.  The validators will vote on the launch of a white hat program that will reward hackers with $1 million for discovering a “significant bug.”  The on-chain vote will... read More



BNB HACK INU: How Someone Stole 60 ETH Following the BNB Chain Hack

    The past 24 hours were quite tumultuous, with one of the largest blockchain networks - BNB Chain - suffering a security breach that saw the millions worth of cryptocurrency being compromised. And while the process of freezing and recovering the stolen assets is ongoing and the network is back to its normal functioning, someone took the opportunity to pull off another scam. Enter the BNB HACK INU Token BNBHACKINU - a token created in a clear reference to both the recent BNB Chain hack and popular dog-themed memecoins - becomes the latest scam that perpetrators pulled off to steal crypto off of innocent people. Delivering the information was a Twitter user by the name of lorem who detailed how the entire thing went down. According to him, the hacker who was responsible for the BNB Chain exploit, created a token called BNBHACKERINU - just two hours after the initial exploit. Because of the way the smart contract was coded, he was able to mint an arbitrary number of tokens and add them to the owner's balance. After that, the perpetrator called three other functions that allow the owner to take the BNBHACKINU tokens out of any holder's wallet and transfer them to any other wallet. At this point, I knew this was definitely a rug waiting to happen. The owner was constantly calling these methods and each time the stolen tokens were sent to a brand new wallet with 0 ETH. I only went through a few of the transactions but of the fresh wallets I looked at, there were over 7 mil... read More



Multi-Million BNB Chain Hack and Bitcoin's Battle for $20K: This Week's ...

    In terms of overall market movements, not much was happening in the past seven days. The total capitalization remained somewhat flat, around $990 million, unable to recover above the coveted $1 trillion mark. Bitcoin's price, as well as that of the majority of altcoins, also failed to post a significant difference. At the time of this writing, Bitcoin's price trades at around $19,700 - more or less where it was this time last week. The volatility is currently gone from the cryptocurrency market, and Bitcoin is no exception. The bulls attempted to rally above $20,000 and even managed to keep the price above this level for a couple of days, reaching a weekly high at just shy of $20,500 (on Binance). Unfortunately, today, the price tumbled below $20K when the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics posted information about the jobs added through September. The number exceeded expectations, and market participants perceived it as a sign that the current measures to curb inflation and encourage spending are insufficient, hence pushing the price down. Much like BTC, ETH is also charting a 0.2% increase over the past seven days, indicating a flat trend of rangebound trading. Most of the altcoins followed suit. The most exciting thing, albeit in the bad sense of the word, was yesterday's hack of the BNB Chain. Someone managed to exploit a security vulnerability in the BNB Bridge and siphoned at least $100 million worth of cryptocurrency. Developers were quick to react and froze some... read More



Here's How the Multi-Million BNB Chain Hack Went Down: Paradigm Research...

    The BNB Chain was temporarily paused after an exploit on its cross-chain bridge. The current impact estimate is around $100 million and $110 million equivalent of cryptocurrency. According to the latest update, the BNB Chain has resumed working as usual, but let's have a look at how the hack went down, according to a popular researcher. The Exploit Paradigm Researcher Sam Sun stated that the attacker somehow convinced the Binance Bridge to send out 1 million BNB to an address they controlled. They repeated the step twice. After comparing the attacker's transactions with legitimate withdrawals, Sun noticed that the height used by the attacker was always the same - 110217401. However, the heights used by legitimate withdrawals were much bigger, such as 270822321, the researcher pointed out. He further noted that the attacker's proof was notably shorter than the legitimate withdrawal's proof, meaning that they had found a way to 'forge a proof' for that specific block - 110217401. Binance has a special precompile contract that is used to verify IAVL trees. When a user verifies an IAVL tree, they need to specify a list of 'operations.' The Binance Bridge typically expects two of them: an 'iavl:v' operation, and a 'multistore' operation, Sun specified. The attacker managed to exploit the bug in the Binance Bridge that verified proofs allowing attackers to forge arbitrary messages., While the attacker only forged two messages, the researcher claimed that the damage could have been ... read More



BNB Chain Functioning Back to Normal Following the Recent Hack

    The BNB Chain is back to operating normally following a halt that happened because of a massive security breach. Validators are confirming their status while the community infrastructure is upgraded as well. As CryptoPotato reported yesterday, the BNB Chain was temporarily paused following the $600 million hack. Binance first revealed the halt due to irregular activity, and it was later established that millions worth of BNB were drained. The community, including developers and project owners, was quick to respond, and a lot of the funds have been frozen already, as confirmed by CZ himself. Now, the network is back to running normally, according to an update on the official Twitter account: BNB Smart Chain (BSC) is running ok from 20+ minutes ago. The validators are confirming their status and the community infrastructure are upgrading as well.

Binance Coin Drops 4% Following BNB Chain Hack (Market Watch)

    While bitcoin continues to trade around the coveted $20,000 line, Binance Coin is among today's worst performers following yesterday's hack against the BNB Chain. Most other larger-cap alts are also with slight declines, and the crypto market cap has settled at approximately $950 billion. BNB Drops as BNB Chain Gets Exploited Arguably the biggest news in the cryptocurrency space yesterday came when Binance announced halting the entire Binance Smart Chain following an exploit. Initial reports claimed that the attacker managed to steal roughly $600 million worth of BNB. Although BNB Chain's official Twitter page indicated that the network has been resumed, the native token that supports it - BNB - has suffered the most from the larger-cap alts. The asset dropped from $293 to $278 minutes after the attack became public. Despite recovering some ground to $285 as of now, BNB is still 4% down on the day. Most of the larger-cap alts are with slight losses as well. These include Ethereum, Ripple, Cardano, Solana, Dogecoin, Polkadot, and Shiba Inu. Tron, Uniswap, and OKB are among the few exceptions with insignificant gains. Overall, the cumulative market capitalization of all crypto assets has seen $15 billion gone in a day and is down to $950 billion on CoinMarketCap. Cryptocurrency Market Overview.

BNB Chain Halts Operations Following Massive Exploit

    Binance's signature Binance Smart Chain is the latest to suffer from an exploit, and the chain is 'temporarily paused,' according to the official BNB Chain Twitter account and Binance's CZ. Early hours following the hack look to show 2M BNB, or over $500M at time of publishing, through the Binance Bridge. Furthermore, many have criticized the response around the matter. Let's take a look at the details we know thus far. Binance Bridge Can't Avoid The 'Bridge Problem'  One of the biggest issues around crypto vulnerabilities often seems to be bridges - where movement from one chain to another adds a layer of complexity that has proved to be a challenge. According to Paradigm researcher @samczsun (who provides a detailed thread on the the exploit), the BSC Token Hub bridge was tricked to send the attacker two transactions of 1M BNB each.

How Jeremy Ryan Became The World's Biggest NFT Artist on the BNB Chain

    As more people familiarize themselves with NFTs and what they are, more artists have come on board. According to IntoTheBlock, there are more than 80,000 NFT collections, and this massive growth is not expected to stop anytime soon. NFTs started out as a form of digital art mainly used for entertainment purposes, but this has been changing.  Now, utility NFTs are taking over the space as they offer privileges, rights, or rewards to holders. That being said, Jeremy Ryan, also known as NFT Demon, has become the biggest NFT artist on the BNB Chain in terms of minted NFTs, collections created, and fully minted collections with 10,000 pieces or more. He has created six incredibly successful collections, including Cartel Punks, Bad Ass Doggos, and Gaming Shiba, and is now working on his latest one, Super Gremlin. Jeremy’s success, however, was not exactly overnight. Jeremy was diagnosed with brain cancer and zero chances of surviving. His battle against cancer ended up being a medical miracle and not only did he survive, but his life and passions took a complete turn. Before his diagnosis, Jeremy was never into art and had no artistic abilities. However, according to science and due to the nature of neuroplasticity, he was able to develop a passion for art that led to creating unique digital art. Jeremy is now known as NFT Demon and, as his name implies, creating NFTs has become his latest passion. After just one month in the space, he became the biggest NFT artist on th... read More

ShareRing Enables Direct $SHR Swapping Between BNB Chain and ShareLedger

    From September 22, ShareRing app users can directly swap $SHR between BNB Smart Chain and ShareLedger (SLP3) without first converting to Ethereum ERC-20 token. ShareRing said the decision to slash conversion steps from three to two would drastically boost efficiency, lower the cost of conversion, and save time. $SHR is native to ShareLedger, a Leased Proof-of-Stake blockchain that's scalable and energy efficient. Compliant with the ShareRing standard, the token is primarily used to pay transaction fees. However, because the token is cross-chain and can be held in various blockchains, including the BNB Chain, and Ethereum, all $SHR transactions can be tracked on the ShareLedger blockchain. There is a trail that prevents fraud by ensuring a simple and reliable tracking mechanism on the ShareLedger blockchain. Before this announcement, $SHR token holders were required to shift their BEP-2 token first to the BEP-20 version in the BNB Chain through the non-custodial Binance Wallet. In the second step, they had to move the newly converted BEP-20 $SHR to Ethereum as an ERC-20 token through the Multichain Bridge. Afterward, they had to move them to ShareLedger (ShareRing App) as an SPL3 token. This three-step procedure was not only tedious but consumed many resources. Notably, there was a risk of users paying high transaction fees when shifting the $SHR token via Ethereum. This is because Ethereum is the world's most active blockchain that continues to face scaling challenges, forcin... read More

ETHW Fiasco: 90% Price Drop, Replay Attacks, Justin Sun's Poloniex Suppo...

    Despite being touted by some as the natural continuation of Ethereum, which stayed on proof-of-work, EthereumPoW has had a rocky start. The first few days after the hard fork, it saw multiple technical bugs, while the native cryptocurrency plummeted by 90% in days. As the Ethereum Merge was coming close, Chandler Guo - a popular Chinese miner - proposed a hard fork that will see the creation of EthereumPoW - a duplicate version of the blockchain to continue to be based on proof of stake. The fork was supposed to take place a day after the Merge, and ETH holders would have been entitled to get an airdrop of the same amount of the new token - ETHW. However, multiple users on Twitter started complaining when EthereumPoW was scheduled to go live that they were unable to open the web page. As of writing these lines, CryptoPotato also couldn't open it. There were also reports about replay attacks against EthereumPoW, but security companies like CertiK and PeckShield said they are related to incorrect ChainID, and the 'vulnerability does not lie with EthereumPoW.' Nevertheless, the hard fork received a lot of support from community members, including famous ones such as Justin Sun. He promised that the crypto exchange he has invested in - Poloniex - will list ETHW. However, citing 'market situation, consensus of users and the community,' the exchange had a change of heart and decided to go with a rival fork chain - EthereumFair (ETF). Later on, Poloniex even said users had already ... read More
