A secret data exchange system, Hidden Talk Coin is releasing a system update on June 6. The update is going to introduce the following features:

  • tiered masternode system;
  • GUI for hidden messaging app;
  • code base for hidden messaging protocol;
  • send/receive simple encrypted messages functionality.

The release was scheduled initially on May 30, but the project decided to add the send/receive encrypted message function as a bonus so the release was delayed.

The masternode tiers will be available at 4 levels: 5,000 HTK; 10,000 HTK; 25,000 HTK and 50,000 HTK. Naturally, the higher the tier, the bigger the rewards. GUI will be an early stage prototype. As for the code base, it will be the most crucial part of the update as it lays the foundation for the whole platform.

HTK Coin protocol provides unidentified block synchronization and asymmetric key encryption as well as secure safe-keeping messages on the blockchain. More details about the project can be found here.

Crypto Investor to File Lawsuit Against AT&T

Michael Terpin believes that AT&T helped scammers to still his $24M worth crypto

In the Los Angeles District Court, a 69-page lawsuit was filed by BitAngels founder Michael Terpin against the American telecom giant AT&T. Terpin claims that the operator assisted fraudsters in "stealing digital personal data" from the account on his smartphone, which is why he lost $ 24 million in cryptocurrency, according to an official release.

According to Terpin, for seven months, there were two hacks. Initially, an attacker got access to his phone number without providing a password or correct identification data. Later, the phone number was used to steal crypto.

AT&T’s studied indifference to protecting its customers’ privacy and financial assets is a metastasizing cancer, threatening hundreds of millions of unsuspecting AT&T’s customers. Our client had no idea when he initially signed up, nor when later he was promised the highest level of security for his account, that low-level retail employees with access to AT&T records, or people posing as them, can be bribed by criminals to override every system that AT&T advertises as unassailable.

Michael Terpin requires AT & T to pay him $ 224 million - $ 200 million for moral damages and $ 24 million for actual theft.
