Mobile World Congress started on February 26, 2018 in Barcelona. The cybersecurity firm Sikur has presented a new smartphone, which has the features of a normal smartphone with one unique feature which will certainly appeal to crypto investors – a built in cryptocurrency software wallet.

The company states that the built-in crypto wallet is absolutely secure – it even hired professional hackers to try and break into the phones system, but none of the attempts turned out to be successful.

Sikur smartphone might become the much anticipated security solution for the holders of digital assets, considering the fact that a lot of cryptocurrency exchanges and wallets are being often hacked nowadays.

At the end of second quarter of  2018 we will deliver a crypto wallet inside out platform, expanding the wallet use beyond SIKURPhone, it means that our customers should be able, through a physical device, to securely store their cryptocoins.

CEO, Sikur

20,000 units of SIKURPhone are available in a pre-sale from February 27 at a price of $799, and the first units will be delivered in August 2018.

OKEx & Kraken to List Bitcoin SV

Kraken notes that Bitcoin SV doesn't meet its usual listing requirements

OKEx Bitcoin exchange, charged holders of Bitcoin Cash with BCHABC and BCHSV coins. Bidding for each asset is available in pairs with Tether USD, Bitcoin, Ethereum and OKB token.

Note that futures, margin trading and fiat pairs will remain unavailable for new assets. The withdrawal of coins is also closed indefinitely.

In turn, the Kraken exchange assigned the BCH ticker to the Bitcoin ABC chain, but also made a decision on the listing of Bitcoin SV (BSV).

WARNING: Bitcoin SV does NOT meet Kraken’s usual listing requirements. It should be seen as an extremely high risk investment. There are many red flags that traders should be aware of:

  • No known wallets supporting replay protection (be careful!)
  • No support in major block explorers
  • Miners apparently subsidized or operating at a loss
  • Representatives threatening and openly hostile toward other chains
  • Chain’s survival may be mutually exclusive with other chains
  • Supply is temporarily constrained because of limited wallet support
  • Some large holders have indicated they’d be dumping everything ASAP
  • Kraken has done only very minimal code review

Custodial losses taken on due to attacks originating from nChain or its affiliates will be socialized among all BSV holders on Kraken. Given the volatile state of the network and threats that have been made, Kraken cannot guarantee perfect custody of BSV.

Kraken Team

BSV trading will be available in pairs with Bitcoin, fiat USD and Euro.

Meanwhile, the BSV rate in the last 24 hours fell by almost 30%, dropping below $ 90.
