DigitalNote, having a market cap of more than $8 million, dropped 25,55% during last week. 

Anonymous developers of DigitalNote (XDN) have been absent since the ICO ended on June 30 and the rumors about a new team, managing the project and planning to introduce new functions, started to spread. However, there were no official statements made.

Considering absence of DigitalNote developers and lack of any official information, some members of XDN community declared themselves members of XDN official team and claimed that the project is moving to XUN. They stated that UltraNote (XUN) is a project based on XDN source code. Some users were misled by the information that UltraNote is a fork of DigitalNote.

On October 20, a note under the title “DigitalNote: XUN is NOT related to XDN” was published in twitter account of XDN Community, which cleared things up for confused users.

Thuswise, UltraNote and DigitalNote turned out to be two separate projects, independent from each other.

Nonetheless, the price of the XDN continues to decline, and there is no evidence if the development of the project and trade are active or not.

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.
