Investors Consider Cutting Ties with Facebook’s Libra Amid Regulatory Scrutiny

Libra

At least three investors in Facebook’s Libra cryptocurrency are considering disassociating with the currency following intense regulatory pushback.

According to a report published in the Financial Times on Friday, some backers are fearful that the spotlight placed on the social media giant’s proposed cryptocurrency will also bring their own separate, independent businesses into disrepute. Two founding partners have allegedly held discussions with regard to what the “right next steps” should be for their investment. “I think it’s going to be difficult for partners who want to be seen as in compliance [with their own regulators] to ...

Understanding the Difference Between Proof of Work and Proof of Stake

proof of work

Many have heard of proof of work and proof of stake, but don’t necessarily know the difference. Why does this matter? Because the difference is huge—it’s the difference between competing in a drag race and being elected class president.

Different blockchains use different consensus mechanisms to preserve order and keep things running smoothly. Proof of work is the original gangster of consensus, having driven the Bitcoin blockchain (and many others) since 2009. Proof of stake emerged in 2011 as an energy-friendly alternative for accomplishing the same task, and it just happens to work completely differently.

2019 Review: Chainlink (LINK) Leads, Bitcoin Stands in 6th Position

Chainlink

After having been in the middle of a directionless muddle for much of 2018, Bitcoin came back with a vengeance this year and went on an excellent rally that took it back to heights that had last been scaled back in 2017.
