Square Cash payments company announced that all users except those in New York, Georgia, Hawaii, or Wyoming have access to bitcoin trading in their app. Users can buy up to $10,000 worth of bitcoin and deposit it from other addresses. The app doesn’t have a fee for purchases, but the sale price will be a mid-market price averaged from different exchanges.

In November 2017 we have reported that Square Cash was running a bitcoin trial for select users, which had the ability to buy and sell bitcoin using any payment method they had attached to the app.

Cash App empowers people with access to the financial system, and our customers have shown interest in a simple, approachable way to buy and sell Bitcoin. Through our pilot, we’ve learned a great deal about how we can make this experience faster and easier and we’re excited to expand its availability.

VeriBlock to Report on Mainnet Launch

Using the bitcoin blockchain to ensure the safety of altcoins, the VeriBlock project announced the launch of the main network. This is reported in a press release.

According to the developers, the VeriBlock technology allows networks of other cryptocurrencies to use the bitcoin blockchain to counter the “51% attacks”. The project is confident that this approach not only ensures the security of less popular networks, but also allows their developers to focus on innovation and functionality.

According to analysts of The Block, 25–45% of bitcoin transactions fall on VeriBlock. The VeriBlock network uses a consensus algorithm called Proof-of-Proof (PoP). The project seeks to ensure the safety of other blockchains by loading a snapshot of the altcoin registry into the BTC blockchain, using the OP_RETURN function and other methods to embed network state data.

The project’s website states that PoP allows altcoin networks to use the most protected Bitcoin blockchain with its Proof-of-Work algorithm.
