The manufacturer of hardware wallets Ledger warned users about fraudulent schemes related to the hard fork of Bitcoin called Diamond (BCD). In particular, they are talking about sites that offer bitcoin holders to get BCD coins.

Bitcoin Diamond is one of the many forks of bitcoin, the creators of which announced their intention to issue a new crypto currency in November.

Details of the project, for the most part, are unknown, developers are feeding the public with vague promises to increase the speed of processing transactions, and futures for BCD traded on two dozen exchanges.

As Ledger informs, malefactors use trustfulness of bitcoin holders who technically have the right to receive equivalent balances in BCD, luring them to a lot of sites with the help of which it is supposedly possible to get a new crypto currency.

Some cryptocurrency enthusiasts even made a whole investigation regarding Bitcoin Diamond.

Bitcoin Diamond is unlike the previous forks of Bitcoin (Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Gold). Bitcoin Diamond is scam with huge red flags. Do not get scammed into buying Bitcoin Blood Diamonds.

For example, Medium blogger with nickname "bitcoinblooddiamond" reports on the lack of information about the team, no official Slack, poor Telegram channel, date of website registration (3rd November), anonymous team and other strage things.

The security tokens platform tZERO announced plans to launch a mobile application for buying and selling bitcoin. In the future, the application may also begin to support Ethereum,  CoinDesk reports.

According to Saum Noursalehi, CEO of tZERO, applications for iOS and Android devices should be launched in June. Bitsy is developing it, a cryptocurrency start-up that is part of the portfolio of the Overstock venture division of Medici Ventures.

That’s part of the reason we acquired Bitsy — to accelerate time to market for our mobile app. They have an app for trading crypto, primarily bitcoin, in a beta-phase, they built a wallet and key recovery mechanism, and this will be the foundation of the mobile app for tZERO. They are also working on some cool stuff like biometric login.

According to him, the application will allow you to store cryptocurrency without the need to trust third parties and it will be connected to the network of exchanges through the API. The implementation of this plan will occur through partner tZERO, the institutional trading platform SFox.

In the future, the head of tZERO added, the platform also intends to create its own cryptocurrency vault to meet the demand from users.

The public beta testing of Bitsy wallet started in November 2018. With his help, the Overstock retailer plans to launch Bitcoin sales on its website.
