According to the Canaccord study, Bitcoin decentralization is growing, it became possible to buy ethereum through an application from Safello. Coinbase has added a cryptopurse to Wallet.
Financial company Canaccord Genuity Group conducted a bitcoin network hashrate study. It was found that now no pool controls more than 20% of coin mining. At the same time, two of them, Antpool and ViaBTC, belong to the same company - Bitmain. But the total extraction of assets here does not exceed 27%.
Experts remind that back in 2014, the GHash.io pool controlled more than 50% of the bitcoin network hashrate. This made the coin vulnerable to “attack 51”. At the same time, the Canaccord study reports that even now up to 60% of mining capacity is concentrated in China. This raises the question of the risks to the system of possible solutions at the state level.
The Safello cryptocurrency service offered Opera Opera users to purchase Ethereum through an integrated cryptowallet. For the time being, only residents of Sweden, Norway and Denmark have access to the service. It takes less than one minute to purchase, and funds can be transferred through a plastic card or an electronic payment system.
However, Safello notes that these features are only available for the Opera mobile app on the Android system. For users of the desktop browser versions, buying Ethereum from the Opera browser is not yet available.
Coinbase cryptocurrency exchange announces a new feature of its application Wallet. Now you can store Bitcoin without using third-party wallets. It is already integrated into the wallet. And the user keeps individual keys only at himself.
It is reported that the ability to store Bitcoin in an application from Coinbase has become another bid for global leadership. The company does not hide the fact that the goal here is to occupy a dominant position in the field of cryptocurrency storage. Therefore, in the near future, Wallet will receive new features. Support for storages for several more tokens will appear. And citizens of the United States and Europe will be able to make transfers in fiat money to PayPal accounts.
