    Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5IplJiCTwZI This came in on Korean News and despite no mention, AERGO / Blocko is behind this. Proof: 1) https://m.news.naver.com/read.nhn?mode=LSD&mid=sec&sid1=105&oid=092&aid=0002149937 2) https://twitter.com/AERGO_IO/status/1061615229753147393 Digging deeper, it seems that they've got more at Stake than this, and there's little publicity covering: Central Bank of Korea Runs Micro-Blockchain Based Micro-Payments using Blocko's Technology. Source: 1) https://twitter.com/AERGO_IO/status/1062230210181914629 2) http://www.etnews.com/20180928000128 (Korean) --- Adoption is picking up and more so with South Korea looking to Triple the Budget for Blockchain Projects. ($9 Million). Previously this fall, a sub-organization of the South Korean Ministry of Science and ICT, the Korea Internet and Security Agency (KISA), had already made an announcement about the government's plans to to spend about $9 million to spread blockchain projects throughout public and private sectors*, Cointelegraph reported Sep. 4. Korea Internet and Security Agency (KISA) - If you translated the Naver Article above, you'll see this: This project (Blocko) is one of the six pilot projects that the Ministry of Science, Technology, and Information and the Korea Internet Development Agency ( KISA ) are promoting in order to find excellent use cases of the block chain. --- I think these are good times for us in the space, don't let the market get to you because this is only the beginning. Governments are adopting on the tech, and it only brings us to a better place from then. submitted by /u/Jiram [link] [comments […]

  • Why would anyone sell their Bitcoins at this point?
    by /u/etucks_182 on November 14, 2018 at 6:51 pm

    Currently at ~$5560 as I type this. I just can't fathom being willing to sell my Bitcoin at this point. I fully understand that it very well could go lower, but it seems way too risky to me to miss out on the potential upside with all of the bullish things lining up in the institutional side and Bakkt etc. Would love to hear from you, Mr. seller of Bitcoin under $6000. submitted by /u/etucks_182 [link] [comments […]

  • Do crypto enthusiasts really think that normal, everyday people are going to want to have to decide between BCHSV, BCHABC, Bitcoin, or a whole truckload of alts to pay for a given item/service?
    by /u/upper_crust on November 14, 2018 at 6:00 pm

    This fork of BCH completely underscores that nobody making decisions in crypto has learned anything from 2018. People who aren't really into crypto are never going to weigh the pros or cons of using one currency over another. This is so asinine and it is frustrating watching the same story over and over again. Bitcoin was a name, a brand that people could identify with, a singular point of reference for new people to enter into the market. Maybe it did have a lot of faults. But now it's a complete mess and the market is in disarray with all these alts and choices. And what do the developers do? Why, it's time for more hardforking! It's like when Steve Jobs saw Steve Wozniak and his gang of nerds building computers. He instantly recognized the power and importance of the personal computer, but also instantly recognized non-enthusiasts would never want to solder circuits together in their garage. Love Apple or hate it, together the Steves made personal computing accessible for the masses. What crypto is doing right now is precisely the opposite, making it even more arcane, even more silly with petty feuds and slapfights over what so-and-so's "vision" was. The average Joe is going to see this, have no idea how to get involved nor want to, and is instead going to pay for whatever with ApplePay or good old fiat. It's been sad to watch crypto suffer as much as it has this year, and the worst part is it appears nobody has learned much of anything. Once cryptos usefulness as an endless speculation casino finally dries up (it's getting there), these worthless projects will be all that remains, eternally debating the next hardfork because this developer disagrees over some petty nonsense with another. Way to kill the golden goose, guys. submitted by /u/upper_crust [link] [comments […]
