Facebook has today announced its new cryptocurrency and has revealed that its "ambition is for the Libra network to become permissionless". The Libra network website claims that a key distinction in the blockchain space is the one between permissioned systems, "in which only a defined set of entities can shape consensus and governance", and permissionless systems, "where anyone that follows the rules of the protocol and contributes the right types of resources" has a say. The team said that the distinction is important "not only from a technical perspective, but also from an economic one". What's the difference? The Libra team described how permissionless systems have "low barriers to entry and innovation" and can be "resistant to censorship attacks".

At the time of writing, the positive momentum in the cryptocurrency markets is still present. Bitcoin is well on the way to $10,000, and that means we can expect some altcoins to pump higher as well. Bitcoin has broken past the $6,000, $7,000, and $8,000 levels with ease. Since then, we touched the $9,000 level for a brief moment before returning to the $8,500 area soon after. However, over this past weekend, BTC was able to break the $9,000 level again and remain above it, finding support near $9,100.

Ripple's XRP token has once again tested the $0.44 level of resistance overnight, rallying 3% in the process. This marked the third test of this level in the past month, with price falling 25% on both previous rejections. The 200 exponential moving average (EMA) has acted as support on both moves to the downside, with price bouncing off that level twice. One key difference in today's rally has been the confluence of the 100 and 200 EMAs, which look close to completing a golden cross on the daily chart. This cross would indicate a switch in momentum to the upside, meaning that price could well break out of $0.44 and test the psychological $0.50 level of resistance. $XRP has probablyThe post XRP tests crucial $0.44 level of resistance as golden cross approaches appeared first on Coin Rivet.
Andreas Antonopoulos doesn't have much hope for the decentralisation claims of the upcoming Facebook cryptocurrency, but he does think that it may be the first in a new wave of Silicon Valley coins set to directly compete against an established set of incumbent banking giants. Speaking to a packed house at the recent London Coinscrum meetup, the open source advocate hypothesised that Facebook may be planning "an open network where anyone can join", but soon the company is going to run into a couple of legal constraints. Antonopoulos mocked the true intentions of the social media platform, saying: "If they can build a truly decentralised and permissionless coin, then I will join the board of directors."

Bitcoin has a carbon footprint equal to that of Las Vegas, according to scientists. Boffins at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have figured out that the world’s most dominant cryptocurrency is responsible for pumping out around 22 megatons of carbon dioxide every year – the same amount as the infamous US home of 24-hour casinos. Researchers at TUM analysed masses of data such as the IP addresses of Bitcoin ‘miners’ who eat up vast amounts of electricity to harvest pieces of the cryptocurrency. Miners set their machines up to solve various mathematical conundrums in order to execute transactions to be rewarded with Bitcoins, but the cost in electricity to do so can often outweigh the value of the coinThe post Bitcoin’s carbon footprint is same as Las Vegas appeared first on Coin Rivet.
The first Bitcoin was installed in Vancouver during 2013. But now the Mayor of the Canadian city is proposing a ban on the machines, arguing that they open the door to money laundering. It's important to remember who exactly is using them; some of these people are often on society’s fringes, especially sex workers. Vancouver’s potential ban on such machines will affect that vulnerable group disproportionately, argues Ethan Lou, a former journalist who these days runs a mining company in Canada and whose first book, Once a Bitcoin Miner, will be published next year. In an article for The Globe and Mail, he says: "Make no mistake, the issue of Bitcoin ATMs is one of social class.
