Cryptopia announced its delisting of CryptoForecast on April 28 due to coin platform change
12 April 2018   761

On March 28 Cryptopia has issued a notification of CryptoForecast delisting. CryptoForecast is transitioning from its native omni layer towards ERC-20 token. The reason for that is that OMNI wallet had little market penetration and moreover omni layer is built upon bitcoin and works with it only. Also, with omni layer those exchanges that want to list CFT need an OMNI wallet with additional maintenance effort. And with an ETH wallet exchanges will welcome the listing.

Any users holding CFT coins need to see the email sent from Cryptopia for further information. It is recommended to withdraw the funds from the exchange by April 16 and research the procedure around the swap to ensure the safety and the success of the conversion. The exchange itself is not participating in the swap and whether the new ERC-20 token will be listed is not clear.

Do bear in mind that the network will be dropped prior to the delisting date (April 16th) and Cryptopia may not be able to send funds if the network starts to slow down or drop completely.

 

Excerpt from the Cryptopia notice

CFT developers will accept any questions or concerns regarding the swap. At the moment of publication, CryptoForecast market parameters are as follows

Average price: $0.006176

Market cap: $284,091

DFINITY to Postpone Internet Computer Launch

The blockchain project Dfinity reported in its blog postponing the launch of its main product.

Previously, Dfinity chief scientist Dominic Williams said that his company intends to create an “Internet computer that will become cloud 3.0”, compete with Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure, and also change the face of the blockchain industry.

According to him, the project team is developing a technology that has 150 higher performance than Ethereum blockchain and 900 times - Bitcoin. In essence, the project creates a “giant Internet computer”, whose work will be supported not by one company, but by all participants of the Dfinity protocol.

Initially, the release of a minimum viable product (MVP) was planned for the first quarter of 2019. However, according to company representatives, working on a trimmed version may slow down progress in creating a complete product.

The project is currently assessing the time frame for the completion of the MVP. Also, noted in Dfinity, before the end of the first quarter a new set of development tools (SDK) will be released, which will shed light on the future plans of the company.

In August, the Dfinity Foundation attracted $ 102 million of investments in the framework of a closed tokensale. Prior to this, at the beginning of the year, the Dfinity Foundation raised $ 61 million from Andreessen Horowitz and Polychain Capital.
