Bitcoin Cash (BCH, BCC), a hard-forked version of the original Bitcoin, is less than two days old ans only three mining pools are currently mining the brand new coin: these are Bitcoin.com, ViaBTC and... the third one is rather mysterious.

Distributed database that is used to maintain a continuously growing list of records, called blocks

Thus, according to the CoinDance data, the share of that "unknown" pool accounts for 75% of the total hashrate. By the way, the block’s coinbase data has revealed an address to a backpackers hostel in Hong Kong called Kwong Wah Mansion - that's where a good part of Bitcoin Cash has been mined from.

Bitcoin Cash

A new cryptocurrency representing a hard-forked version of Bitcoin, different from it in the blocksize limits

News.bitcoin.com lifts the veil of secrecy and provides the readers ith an exclusive conversation with the miner from Hong Kong otherwise known as "MC Pool", who wishes to remain anonymous.

The miner was asked about the initial reasons for mining Bitcoin Cash.

Seriously for fun and to promote the new trading center in Hong Kong.

Apparently, the miner started mining Bitcoin Cash to promote his new trading center called “Genesis Block”, which will focus on day trading, Over-the-Counter (OTC) sales, retail, night-time lectures, sharing and local cryptocurrency meet-ups.

According to the information provided by news.bitcoin.com, the Hong Kong miner explains that he and “most of his friends” have already switched back to the BTC main chain, as the operation hasn’t been profitable due to the difficulty. “Return still cannot catch up to difficulty,” explains the miner.

Only time will tell which one [BTC or Bitcoin Cash] will survive eventually.

Since switching back to the main chain, the Hong Kong miner doesn’t think they will mine it again. He doesn’t believe his “friends” will go back into mining Bitcoin Cash either. 

GRAM May be Traded at Liquid at Triple ICO Price

Bloomberg says that Telegram tokens, that may appear at Liquid will be sold by Gram Asia at $4 per token, but there's no official info from Telegram
04 July 2019   1025

Even before the official public release of the cryptocurrency of the messenger, Telegram can increase in price by 200% relative to its value during the initial offer of coins. It is reported by Bloomberg.

As previously reported, Telegram tokens may appear on the Liquid Bitcoin Exchange already on July 10. The distributor is Gram Asia, which calls itself the largest holder of GRAM tokens in Asia. It intends to put up for sale rights to cryptocurrency at $ 4 per unit.

At the same time, one of the investors said to the publication that at the time of purchase the price of 1 Gram was $ 1.33.

It is worth noting, however, that after the announcement of the public sale of Telegram tokens to Liquid, the media reported that this intention had nothing to do with the official plans of Telegram.

Then one of Telegram's investors stated that no one has the right to sell tokens before their official launch in accordance with the signed agreement. Moreover, representatives of the popular messenger noted that they first heard about Gram Asia.

Later, CEO Liquid Mike Kayamora admitted that Telegram has no relation to the placement on Liquid: the deal was concluded exclusively between the exchange and Gram Asia, which allegedly is an incubator for the TON project.

The Block's leading analyst Larry Chermak on several tweets expressed skepticism about the announced Telegram tokenale based on the Liquid stock exchange, saying that he would “think twice before making a decision to invest.”
