ZCash Bug: team releases software fix

A ZCash bug has been discovered a few days ago and now the development team has released a new software update to fix this denial of service (DoS) vulnerability.

In fact, in a new blog post, Zooko Wilcox and Paige Peterson – both developers at ZCash – explained how the bug could allow an hacker to crash a zcash node remotely by sending a specific kind of transaction.

ZCash bug found on Wednesday

The bug was found in an update included in the ZCash’s 1.0.4 release, related to how transactions are given priority in a node’s mempool.

This vulnerability was discovered back on Wednesday (April 12nd, 2017).

The blog explains:

“ZcashCo, and several exchanges, wallet vendors, and miners have already deployed a mitigation as well as detectors for this attack vector. No attacks have been detected.”

Zcash published a software update to address this bug, asking users to upgrade their platforms in order to delete the denial of service risk.

The Zcash team  also commented that, should signs emerge that an attack attempt is being made, it would issue alerts and coordinate with related services on a response.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, Zcash is a digital currency with the special feature of total anonymity thanks to its zero knowledge proof of work called zk-snarks.

Zcash Market Cap: top 10 cryptocurrencies

Zcash Market Cap climbed as much as $64.7m on April 4th, becoming one of the top 10 digital currencies by market capitalization.

This completely anonymous cryptocurrency was launched back in 2016 and it uses the so-called zero-knowledge proofs “zs-SNARKS” to help users hide their information during the transaction process.

In fact, the Zcash blockchain hides any information related to users and transaction amount, becoming one of the first completely anonymous digital currency together with Monero.

The major reason that helped to push zcash market cap is the rising supply of the protocol’s ZEC tokens, with the supply recently passing 1m ZEC.

While its token price rose to almost $6,000 after going live, the Zcash market cap grown only of about $1.9m.

Even if the current Zcash market cap fell back to twelfth place at press time, we expect it to rise again soon.

Best ZCash Wallet: store 20 digital currencies in 1 place

Are you looking for the best Zcash Wallet? Read here the ultimate guide about Zcash and find out how to store your coins in a safe place.

Zcash is one of the latest digital currencies appeared on the market. It is completely anonymous, as Zcash is based on a cryptographic tool called “zk-SNARK” that doesn’t require that the parties involved in a transaction exchange any information.

This means that on the blockchain you cannot read sender, receiver and amount-related information.

Also, another important feature of ZCash is that transactions clear in a fraction of the time, compared with bitcoin, for example.

New features for Zcash

Recently, the Zcash team published a new blog post in which they explained their plans to upgrade functionality of the digital currency that focuses on integrating new innovations into the protocol.

These changes include:

  •  A Payment disclosure feature that allow only people involved in the transaction to read the information embedded into the blockchain;
  •  inter-blockchain transactions with popular public blockchains such as bitcoin and ethereum will be available through a tool called XCAT (Cross-Chain Atomic Transactions).

Once implemented, these new protocol features will allow to issue Zcash tokens – similar to Ethereum-related ones.

monero-howto

Monero (XMR) was released in April of 2014, it was originally called BitMonero and launched as a preannounced and fair launch of the CryptoNote reference code. Since its original launch, Monero has migrated the blockchain to another database structure, improving flexibility and efficiency. The developers also set minimum ring signature sizes to make all transactions private, and RingCT was added. Almost every improvement made so far has made Monero easier to use or enhanced its security and privacy. The cryptocurrency was founded by Riccardo Spagni alongside 6 other developers, 5 of whom have decided to remain anonymous till date, but more than 240 have contributed to the code.

All HolyTransaction customers can create a new address for XMR and use the simple HolyTransaction Web Wallet to send and receive transactions or to instantly convert them to any other cryptocurrency.

Wallet Storj: STORJ token joins HolyTransaction

As of today, you can instantly purchase Storj on HolyTransaction, transfer them to any HolyTransaction’s customer for free, and do crypto-to-crypto swaps between your Wallet Storj and more than other 30 cryptocurrencies.

The Storj project provides for a decentralized cloud storage facility and is originally pronounced as “storage“.

Storj’s main aim is to rent a space on the secondary storage devices of the members of its network and pay them in cryptocurrency, for their service they provide. Therefore, Storj’s native cryptocurrency token is STORJ, which can be stored on HolyTransaction now.

“The main difference between Storj and other decentralized cloud storage platforms is that Storj only uses blockchain to manage payments and not to store data. This is due to the high cost and slow speeds found in blockchains. For example, even the fastest blockchains process data/payments in seconds. Meanwhile, traditional cloud storage solutions, like Amazon S3, can store files in milliseconds – many orders of magnitude faster than even the fastest blockchains.”

Shawn Wilkinson (Founder of Storj)

The Storj platform offers online storage similar to Dropbox or Google Drive, but does so over a distributed network. Renting out unused extra space on our hard drives is referred to as, Farming, for instance. The process as simple as downloading a client from the network, choosing the amount of space to be rented, and a wallet address to store the incentives received in the form of cryptocurrency.

All HolyTransaction customers can create a new address for STORJ and use the simple HolyTransaction Web Wallet to send and receive transactions or to instantly convert them to any other cryptocurrency.

Just like with Bitcoin, you can:

  • Send STORJ to any address, even to addresses of other cryptocurrencies with instant conversion on the fly;
  • Receive transactions;
  • Exchange STORJ with any supported coins;
  • Make instant transactions between HT users;
  • Get real time exchange rates on the website;

Six Cryptocurrencies to Watch in 2019

top-cryptocurrencies-2019

Following last year’s very well publicised crisis moment for Bitcoin, it’s very tempting to believe that the moment for cryptocurrency has passed. Confidence in these new technologies has waned significantly, and there’s a general understanding of how volatile the market is. But though it is still true that cryptocurrency is not as stable as more established currencies, the technology isn’t going anywhere any time soon.

So while you may have missed the first major boom in digital currency, there is a likelihood that we are going to see some interesting developments in 2019. Here are some cryptocurrencies to watch this year.

Ethereum (ETH)

Ethereum works not just as a digital currency but as a platform for users to build their own cryptocurrency. Users take the building blocks provided by Ethereum’s blockchain and create their own application so that it can be used to manage things like supply chain.

At the end of 2018, Ethereum had started to show growth again after the 2017 peak. At it’s highest peak, it had grown around 3000%, the second largest after Bitcoin. “During the course of this year,” says Jay Stokes, author at researchpapersuk.com, “ Ethereum is expected to continue to rise in value, as plans roll out to improve its technology.

Decred (DCR)

Launched in 2016, Decred has become a well regarded currency that aims to democratize its model. There’s a focus on the actual work of data mining, with partial rewards going back to those who can offer proof of work. These individuals can have a direct say in the management and direction of the project.

To facilitate this decentralized governance, the developers have created an efficient and simple voting system to achieve consensus. Utilizing smart contracts the model is resistant to any potential outside parties that would seek to influence votes being cast.

Cardano (ADA)

Founded by Ethereum’s Charles Hoskinson, Cardano works through a smart contract platform. The developers take remarkable care to maintain the platform, and seek to standardise and promote Cardano’s protocol technology.

Charles Hoskinson claims that Cardano is the next stage in evolution for blockchain technology. It is built on meticulous academic and scientific research in order to combat issues surrounding blockchain technology, including scalability, interoperability and sustainability.

Dash (DASH)

Created in 2014, Dash is a decentralized autonomous organization as well as a cryptocurrency. As an open source asset, it works on a principle of self-governance. In its early days, it was known as Xcoin, a ‘fork’ of the Bitcoin protocol, but as an altcoin, it earned a bad reputation as the cryptocurrency used on the dark web.

However, following a rebrand as Dash (Digital Cash), it ceased operating on the dark in 2016. Payments via Dash are almost instantaneous, and through user engagement protocols, the community which uses it are all geared towards improving its development.

ZCash (ZEC)

Developed in late 2016, ZEC is geared around security and transparency. The two main protocols of Zcash involve either shielded or transparent pools.

Private transactions can be disclosed to aid transparency, allowing users to prove payments in order to comply with governmental regulation and tax services. In this way, Zcash has been at the forefront of creating a sustainable future for cryptocurrency.

The developers of ZCash have been very public in meeting with law enforcement agencies” says Carina Rodriguez, contributor to draftbeyond.com, “This, finally, is a bid to show a united front against illegal cryptocurrency activity.

Monero (XMR)

Monero has had a somewhat controversial year. Some studies during the year showed that around 4.3% of the total supply of XMR had been mined illegally. For many, this is a worrying part of cryptocurrency. However, as the industry as a whole move towards a more legitimate, less shady mode of practice, it is interesting to note that during the time these studies were published, XMR’s value seemed to have fluctuated very little. It is based on the CryptoNight ‘Proof of work’ algorithm, pushing miners to seek legitimate sources of data.

Unlike, for instance, ZCash, Monero is developed around utter financial privacy, allowing payments and balances to remain hidden. Though it remains a controversial choice of Bitcoin, it continues to be a versatile crypto asset used across the world.
