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

Popular bitcoin wallet service blockchain.info doesn't plan to support the alternative Bitcoin Cash protocol in the near future, which is expected to be launched on August 1.

Bitcoin

Is the first decentralized peer-to-peer payment network that is powered by its users with no central authority or middlemen

At the same time, if BCC will develop into the actual chain and the market, users will be able to use the key phrase to export their funds and use them in that chain, regardless of whether Blockchain decides whether to support it or not.  

In the event of two separate blockchains after August 1, 2017 we will support the longest chain. As of today, we have no immediate plans to fully support the Bitcoin Cash fork within our main product. But, if BCC develops into an actual chain and market, you will be able to use your recovery phrase to export your funds and use them on that chain, regardless of whether or not Blockchain chooses to support it.

Social platform for petitions Change.org announced the launch of a screensaver that mines Monero on users' computers. All tokens will be transferred to the charity fund of Change.org. This is reported by Coindesk.

This initiative was launched in partnership with the marketing agency Tracelocke Brazil.

Representatives of Change.org report that the screensaver will consume resources only when users do not use the computer. According to their calculations, if 10 thousand computers will run the screensaver for 12 hours a day, the charity fund will be transferred $ 10 thousand monthly.

At the moment the program is available only for Windows users and the platform did not report on the release plans for the version for macOS.

Note that at the end of April, a similar action was launched by the Australian unit of the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund; (UNICEF). The website "Page of Hope" mines Monero cryptocurrency.
