It's now pushing a $100 billion market cap and is going from strength to strength. Each time a country bans the bitcoin, moves to replace it or a large bank calls it a ponzi scheme, the price gets temporality damaged and then shows its resilience by surpassing previously set record highs.

This major milestone might seem like the high rise you missed out on but believe me when I say this is still very early days.

First, came Bitcoin Cash (BTC) in August and now there's a new fork, Bitcoin Gold (BTG). The strong focus of Bitcoin Gold is to allow regular gaming GPU cards to be rewarded for mining. This differs from Bitcoin with its SHA-256 algorithm which is nowadays only mined with ASIC hardware. Bitcoin Gold's weapon of choice is simple, to bring us affordable GPU mining, they have switched the proof of work algorithm to the Equihash algorithm, popularized by Zcash. Zcash founder Zooko Wilcox and engineer Jack Grigg said:

However, the price of Ether has sunk to a one month low of $275, even with the improved privacy (pioneered by Zcash) and enhanced usability, that the Byzantium fork has bought to the currency.

Analysts had predicted this fork would push the price back to a high of $400, where it was in September, before the recent China ban, which hurt all cryptocurrencies.

The History of CryptoRival

Launched in August 2017 by husband and wife team, David and Lisa Sampson, CryptoRival started out as a couple of digital currency calculators and a few reviews of cloud miners.

After hearing about cryptocurrency mining, David decided he would expand the site. He looked into building a rig at home, but this proved to be costly to build, noisy in the house and was prone to overheating. This led to seeking out cloud mining companies.

However, finding out profit margins, costs, fees, days... ]]> Sun, 01 Oct 2017 00:00:00 GMT Lisa Sampson NEWS: Zcash is checking all the boxes https://cryptorival.com/news/zcash-is-checking-all-the-boxes/ https://cryptorival.com/news/zcash-is-checking-all-the-boxes/ Edward Snowden, the prominent whistleblower who leaked the NSA surveillance document, has recently tweeted in agreement that Zcash is the only altcoin built by professional cryptographers.

Even with China’s might, they have barely caused a road bump to the dominance of bitcoin. However, a raging disagreement between core developers, miners and the community alike over an issue with the block size being set to one megabyte, has the potential to see a hard fork of the network and currency.

The Chinese government has moved to stop all ICO trading platforms and agencies in an effort to ban cryptocurrency usage in the country. This includes ordering bitcoin exchanges there.
