ETC WAS REPLAY ATTACKED ON COINBASE 1511

In the wake of the DAO hack, which had dire implications for the Ethereum blockchain, multiple exchanges acknowledged the existence of new alternative tokens, Ether Classic, based on the original Ethereum code. Exchanges accepted the new “ETC.” Ultimately, Coinbase worked towards the same. That decision turned out to be costly, as the exchange found itself in the middle of the war between Ethereum and its “Classic” rival.

The biggest news over the past two months in Ethereum, until the $120 million Bitfinex hack, has been the $56 hack of Ethereum incubator, the DAO, and the subsequent mobilization for a hard fork. As the Coinbase example details, the DAO hack had implications for the Bitcoin industry. The hard fork resulted in a split of the original Ethereum chain, and some blockchain participants relaunched the original chain, including the DAO hack.

The chain caught on. It’s been adopted by major crypto currency exchanges such as Poloniex and Shapeshift.io. It’s trading on Poloniex at between twice and four times the number of Ethereum which are trading hands. As the sixth largest crypto-currency suddenly, it’s not for certain whether the Ethereum Classic blockchain – which has a native token trading under ETC – is here to stay. But, so far, it’s made waves.

That includes a replay attack made possible by the hard fork and subsequent ETC chain. The two versions of Ethereum are based on the original code, they simply adopt different histories of transactions. That means that transactions can be broadcast on both chains. Coinbase users tried to withdraw ETH from Coinbase and cash out in ETC on another exchange. They would thus have double the tokens associated with essentially the same code but different transaction histories. Cryptography experts refer to the situation as “totally new” in cryptography.

Coinbase suffered from exactly this attack. In a Reddit AMA held this week, the Coinbase security divulged more information in the wake of a tweet made by Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong to clear up confusion in the Bitcoin industry.

“[A]pprox $40k USD of ETC was replay attacked against us that we’ve since fully recovered for our customers,” Rob-coinbase wrote. “We assumed the smaller fork would quickly fade and we were wrong. After seeing ETC gain traction we worked through the weekend to split all future ETH moving through our systems. Withdraw based limits and our hot/cold separation protected us from a bigger attack.”

Statemind Audits Leading Ethereum Staking Solution Lido 2994

Statemind, a newly launched blockchain security auditing firm, has revealed the results of an in-depth audit of the leading liquid staking solution, Lido’s MEV-boost relay allowlist.

Statemind Audits Lido Ahead Of Ethereum Merge

Statemind has released a report detailing its latest audit of the Lido. Lido has been a popular project among the crypto industry due to its close proximity to the Ethereum Merge, potentially making it a high-profile target. Lido allows token holders to use staked ETH as collateral to trade, earn rewards, and more without locking up ETH for years at a time.

The nine-page report outlines the MEV-Boost relay allowlist project and its results. The on-chain relay allowlist is planned to be used by Node Operators participating in the Lido protocol after the ETH Merge to extract MEV, according to Lido policies.

Node Operators would utilize the contract to maintain up-to-date software configuration.

Statemind Audit Report Reveals No Critical Lido Bugs Or Vulnerabilities

In total, zero critical, high, or medium-priority vulnerabilities were discovered. Seven informational bugs were reported to the Lido team involving minor, easily fixable vulnerabilities that pose no substantial threat.

The security auditing report on Lido is the first major public audit released by Statemind since its debut this month. Statemind made its first major public appearance after stepping forward as the white hat hacker who saved $350M in funds across the Avalanche protocol.

Additional Statemind clients include 1INCH and Yearn.Finance.

DeFi makes financial products and services available to everyone who has access to the internet. Moreover, it helps eliminate third-party involvement in people’s businesses and private lives by creating fully secure and anonymous financial services. Next, DeFi empowers users to truly own their funds and utilize various tools to lend, borrow, stake, earn interest and more.

We are thrilled to announce that we are taking the first step toward introducing DeFi possibilities to our users with Changelly DeFi Swap powered by Yet Another DeFi.

Yet Another DeFi is a decentralized exchange (DEX) aggregator that encompasses all the advantages of DeFi and optimizes transaction costs. The Smart Router by YAD finds the best way for a swap among different liquidity providers and suggests the most beneficial split to proceed with the transaction.

What does this integration mean to our users?

  • 1,000+ available tokens
  • Best rates via DeFi
  • Lower transaction costs compared to industry leaders.

The Changelly team is committed to the goal of becoming the leading CEX and DEX aggregator on the market. We believe our seven-year experience of working with CEXs combined with limitless opportunities of DEXs will make it possible to provide even better rates and lower fees to our users. With the integration of DEXs, we get one step closer to enabling seamless anything-to-anything swaps, regardless of blockchain, wallet connector, etc.

ChocoDoge isn’t Just a Game, it’s a Complete Ecosystem with Exciting Opportunities 3411

1 2022 09 11 в 0 01 51

The last few years have witnessed a tremendous rise in the GameFi space in terms of revenue and user base. We now have several popular titles, but the craze for most of these tends to subside after a while. It’s mainly because these are centered around the game and do not focus on the other aspects of the domain. And this led to the creation of ChocoDoge, an NFT GameFi project on the Dogechain.

ChocoDoge is an NFT Gamefi project on Dogechain. But that is only the tip of the iceberg. In order to guarantee the project’s long-term stability and financial security, ChocoDoge team additionally provide Defi products with alluring profit margins.

The team at ChocoDoge has developed an extensive project encompassing the various domains in the space. In addition to the NFT game, users can benefit from several DeFi products offering excellent returns on the ChocoDoge ecosystem. There are bonds, a dedicated bank, and farms, but one that has been actively promoted by the team and provides considerable returns is Staking. And that’s what we will be focussing on here.

Staking on ChocoDoge

Staking is when you lock crypto assets for a set period of time to help support the operation of a blockchain and earn passive income. The idea is simple, users deposit their holding (or even a part of it) into the staking pool and are then required to validate the transaction. And it works because users have their investments at stake, and any mistake or mischievous activity on their part will tend to affect their holding as well. It keeps them going and instills a sense of responsibility. The person doing this is referred to as the validator and earns steady rewards from the blockchain for the contribution.

But, you don’t necessarily need to verify transactions or be actively involved to earn the staking rewards. De-Fi projects, these days, offer investors the option to simply stake their holdings and, in turn, receive a steady stream of rewards. And there’s generally a locking period before which the holdings can’t be withdrawn from the pool.

ChocoDoge, too, works on the same idea, the only difference being that the staking process is a lot simpler and delivers a higher return. It can ensure that by employing advanced protocols and building a token-based economy where the supply is favorably modified automatically based on the market trends.

Another aspect that makes staking on ChocoDoge profitable is that users stake USCD while they receive USDC’s rate of return. USDC is one of the popular stablecoins pegged to the US dollar, with a market cap of $54 billion, and is managed by members from CoinBase and Bitmain. And the best part, there’s no Locking Period on ChocoDoge. So users can withdraw their holding from the staking pool at will, though the key is to leave the funds for a more extended period to earn higher returns.

2 2022 09 11 в 0 02 13

The details for Staking Season 1 are as follows:

From: 2022/09/10, 00:00 GMT
To: 2022/09/24 00:00 GMT
Token to be staked: USCD
Rewards: 50,000 USDC

So, go ahead and stake as many USCD to earn the best returns in the market, that, too, in the form of USDC stablecoin, considered one of the safest investments.

About the ChocoDoge Bank

The ChocoDoge bank allows CD holders to stake their tokens and earn rewards in the form of USCD after each epoch if the Time-weighted Average Price of USCD is greater than that of USDC. The duration of each epoch on ChocoDoge is 4 hours, and actions undertaken here lead to 12-epoch locks for withdrawing CD tokens, while for USCD, the lock period is 6 epochs.

USCD is not a stablecoin backed by fiat or cryptocurrency, the token has employed advanced protocols and stability mechanisms to ensure a $1 peg. After the initial expansion and the project acquiring relative stability, the USCD token will also facilitate transactions, including in-game and in-app purchases.

Holding a CD or the ChocoDoge Share provides several other benefits. The primary is voting on critical changes to the platform, including bonuses and rewards. Since ChocoDoge works as a DAO, anyone holding a CD will have the right to vote. If you possess the right intellect and experience to navigate the project through the initial phase to success, acquire as many CD tokens as you can, and become a prominent voice in the community. And remember, the total supply of ChocoDoge Share is capped at 200,000.

Crypto E-Commerce – Shopping․io Introduces $SHOP Back 3259

Crypto E-commerce giant, Shopping.io is streamlining its operations. On September 9th 2022, Shopping.io will be airdropping its new native utility token – $SHOP to the holders of $SPI and $GSPI. To celebrate the launch, Shopping.io is hosting multiple events offering major benefits including 20% $SHOP back rewards and exciting giveaways!

Shop Online Using Nothing but Crypto!

In 2020, retail e-commerce sales worldwide topped $4.28 trillion, according to Statista, a 27.6% increase on the previous year. By 2022, e-retail revenue is projected to grow to an impressive $5.4 trillion, as consumers move more of their shopping online. In addition, as of 2021, there are over 300 million crypto users worldwide and over 18,000 businesses that have already begun accepting cryptocurrencies as forms of payment.

September 2020 – Shopping.io launches version 1.0 of its platform giving holders the ability to pay for concierge online shopping services with their crypto for the first time. The website enabled purchases of tangible goods via major retailers such as: Amazon, eBay and Walmart, delivering to a handful of destinations around the globe. The platform’s traction was instantly recognizsable even with its limited functionality and was the proof-of-concept Shopping.io needed in order to justify its growth.

Fast forward two years and Shopping.io has two native utility tokens; $SPI and $GSPI (wWith another merged utility token on the way), an NFT set, and a plethora of new payment options under its belt, including: Binancacne Pay, Crypto.com, CoinbBase Commerce and Utrust. These major developments were also accented by the increase in the amount of destinations orders could be sent to.

Shopping.io is now on the cusp of its biggest development to date. Following months of work and testing, Shopping.io is upgrading its platform and launching a more robust, well-rounded ecosystem consisting of a Metaverse mall titled The Shopverse and a Shopping.io web extension facilitating purchases through almost every online store. This overhaul, however, would be incomplete without the release of Shopping.io’s new native token: -$SHOP!.

Introducing the $SHOP Token

In late 2021, Shopping.io found itself with two native tokens that were originally designed to improve users’ experience and governance on the platform. The company however, felt that further improvements to its tokens and their use case within the platform were necessary in order to achieve the ‘token platform relationship’ previously envisioned.

With 2022’s inception came the first internal proposal for the merging of Shopping.io’s current tokens into one ‘do it all’ token. Shopping.io presented its idea for $SHOP in May 2022 paired with the tokens shift in platform utility and tokenomics. The merge of $SPI and $GSPI was put to a community vote, ending in an overwhelming 97% approval rate, opening the door for development on $SHOP’s smart contracts to commence.

Following its launch, $SHOP will inherit the functionalities that $G/SPI currently perform within the ecosystem such as offering discounts, voting, and free international shipping when used as a form of payment within the platform. In addition to these already present utilities, $SHOP’s improved tokenomics and flexible smart contract has allowed Shopping.io to create its state of the art $SHOP Back system that will make its debut on September 9th, and will star in the first of the platform’s $SHOP launch events.

The $SHOP token is designed to reflect the success of the ecosystem thanks to its quantitative burn/mint mechanism. This mechanism creates a direct correlation between the use of the ecosystem and the circulating supply of the token, giving a deeper meaning to the phrase “sShop to earn”.

20% $SHOP Back Event

Shopping.io is launching $SHOP on September 9th, 2022, alongside a selection of platform oriented events; the first of which being a 20% $SHOP Back event that will commence on September 10th, 5 PM CET. The $SHOP Back event will be held for 48 hours giving shoppers the ability to earn an additional 20% of their order value back in $SHOP with the use of selected tokens such as $ETH, $APE and $AVAX as a form of payment.

$SHOP Membership Raffle Event

Shopping.io will unveil $SHOP’s membership platform on the day of the tokens launch, allowing both seasoned community members and newcomers to lock their $SHOP rewards and become a part of the Shopping.io ecosystem. $SHOP’s membership program consists of five tiers, with each package’s benefits being accessible through the locking of a corresponding amount of $SHOP for a three month period. These benefits enhance the shopping experience by activating increased $SHOP Back rewards, aAirdrop rewards, and free shipping. To celebrateboost the membership program’s launch, Shopping.io is holding a month-long staking raffle event for members only!, giving members Thisthe This opportunity gives members the chance to win prizes in addition to their already present platform benefits. Prizes include gift cards, $SHOP credits, access to Shopping.io’s Galaxy membership tier, an iPhone 13 Pro, and the Golden Ape from the Villager of XOLO NFT set.

Shopping.io envisions a future where people have the flexibility to buy anything with anything.
