    Crypto Kitties has written a post on Medium about Cryptokitties Policy on Bots. This is a good thing to read if you're planning to write or use bots to trade crypto kitties.

    WHO KNOW SHA 256

    Firstly: SHA256 is not an encryption function, it's a hash function. So you can't actually "decrypt" it. What you're asking for is a practical preimage attack on SHA256. As far as I know there's no such attack in the wild today. However, if you can share some more information about what data was provided as the input to the hash function, this might help to reverse engineer it. For example, if you have a SHA256-hash of a password, knowing the number of characters of input can help to determine whether it's possible to brute-force a solution or not.

    Mining versus buying Bitcoin

    That's a fair point. Then investing money in mining equipment is like hedging your bets on Bitcoin price. If the price goes down by a lot, at least you still have the equipment that you can re-sell if necessary to recuperate your costs. If the price goes up a lot, you still make some profit but may have missed out on the short-term gains from buying directly.

    Mining versus buying Bitcoin

    Many people can't afford to buy precisely 1 BTC, because it's anywhere between $6000 and $20000 depending on the time of year. But you can always buy a fractional Bitcoin. So you could buy 0.2 BTC without needing to invest as much. Even pool mining is not easy, because you need to have enough mining power to be worthwhile. In my experience, the price of enough mining equipment to make even pool mining profitable would still be better off spent just buying Bitcoin directly. Unless you live in an area where electricity is extremely cheap (or free) so that you'd be able to realistically compete with mining farms in China and Russia.

    Has Bitcoin lost its way?

    I don't think we've seen the worst yet. There's still a lot of work to go before Bitcoin becomes readily accessible to the general public. And until then (or until there is sufficient regulation in place) it will be very susceptible to price manipulation by whales. It'll go wherever the whales want it to go.

    Bitcoin Atom Hard Fork

    Looks like this project is not active anymore 😐 The GitHub repo hasn't had any commits for over 2 weeks. And people are complaining about it on Bitcointalk.
  12. Popular live-streamer Ian Balina of ianbalina.com was recently hacked in the middle of broadcasting a live video stream. According to The Next Web: This just serves as a reminder: your crypto holdings are only as strong as the weakest link. If you have some old recovery emails sitting around without adequate protection, now is a good time to update the security questions and add two-factor auth. Otherwise this could be you, too.

  14. The Verge cryptocurrency (XVG) suffered a 51% attack on April 5th. An attacker exploited several bugs in the XVG code that enabled them to gain a majority of the mining power and generate free coins for themselves. The response from Verge? Calling it a "small attack": In fact, this wouldn't have been publicized much except for OCminer reporting the issue on Bitcointalk. Nonetheless, Verge have "accidentally" hard forked the cryptocurrency in the process of releasing an update that mitigates the impact. It looks like there will be interesting times ahead in the wake of this hack.
