Hexx coin is a privacy focused digital currency with stable client and ongoing development. Hexxcoin implements Zerocoin protocol to ensure anonymity for coin users. Hexxcoin users may convert non-anonymous coins into anonymous ones, which can be sent to other users of the Hexxcoin network, and these transactions cannot be traced by any third party.

According to the white paper of Hexx coin, it will be used to "extend" the functionality of other cryptocurrencies with a low markup - this type of solution is also called merging or co-forking. Reportedly Hexx coin plans to merge Bitcoin blockchain with Zero protocol, creating completely new coin BitcoinZeroX (BTCZ) in the third quarter of 2018.

Every Hexx coin and Bitcoin holder will receive BitcoinZeroX at 1:1 ratio. BitcoinZeroX will not have developer fund and will be completely independent from Hexx coin, while the development of Hexx coin will continue. The BitcoinZeroX project will be an independent initiative from Hexx coin and will require its own dedicated whitepaper which will reportedly be released shortly.

The team of Hexx coin stated that future announcements regarding the fork will be made soon, and we will do our best to inform the readers of any upcoming news.

The security tokens platform tZERO announced plans to launch a mobile application for buying and selling bitcoin. In the future, the application may also begin to support Ethereum,  CoinDesk reports.

According to Saum Noursalehi, CEO of tZERO, applications for iOS and Android devices should be launched in June. Bitsy is developing it, a cryptocurrency start-up that is part of the portfolio of the Overstock venture division of Medici Ventures.

That’s part of the reason we acquired Bitsy — to accelerate time to market for our mobile app. They have an app for trading crypto, primarily bitcoin, in a beta-phase, they built a wallet and key recovery mechanism, and this will be the foundation of the mobile app for tZERO. They are also working on some cool stuff like biometric login.

According to him, the application will allow you to store cryptocurrency without the need to trust third parties and it will be connected to the network of exchanges through the API. The implementation of this plan will occur through partner tZERO, the institutional trading platform SFox.

In the future, the head of tZERO added, the platform also intends to create its own cryptocurrency vault to meet the demand from users.

The public beta testing of Bitsy wallet started in November 2018. With his help, the Overstock retailer plans to launch Bitcoin sales on its website.
