SegWit2x still possible? (part 2)

Yobit exchange will launch the SegWit2x futures trading before the date of possible (or impossible?) hardfork

The hype around the hardfork does not stop. YoBit cryptocurrency exchange launches the SegWit2x futures trading before the date of possible (or impossible?) hardfork.

Yobit will apply the same scheme as in the case of Bitcoin Gold tokens. The exchange will freeze the input and output of bitcoins from the users' accounts, and after that they will calculate the preliminary volume of the SegWit2x split-tokens. This scheme has much in common with futures trading.

On the exchange's website, a countdown appeared.

The fact that the exchange opens trades with these tokens gives reason to expect that despite the announcement of the leaders of the movement, SegWit2x will still take place.

tZERO to Launch Bitcoin Trading App

Application itself is being developed by Bitsy; it may also begin to support Ethereum in the future
22 March 2019   141

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.

CEO, tZero

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.
