? Binance: Funds ‘SAFU’ After Amazon Web Services Error Stops Withdrawals
Cryptocurrency exchange Binance has confirmed user funds are not at risk after a reported technical problem began affecting withdrawals.
According to CEO Changpeng Zhao, also known as CZ, the situation was being resolved on Aug. 23, while funds security was not compromised.
“Funds are #safu,” he wrote on Twitter, employing a now well-known catchphrase he had previously inadvertently created while confirming there was no danger to cryptocurrency holdings.
? Ethereum Poised to Be First Public Blockchain in Hyperledger Consortium
Ethereum could become the first public blockchain on Hyperledger – if the open-source consortium’s technical steering committee approves a proposal to adopt the ConsenSys-backed Pantheon project.
Pantheon is a suite of ethereum-based services built by PegaSys, a 50-strong engineering team at ConsenSys. The Pantheon ethereum client, built on Java, is used to develop enterprise applications with features like privacy and permissioning.
The proposal was sent out in a Hyperledger mailing list email on Aug. 8, and if it is accepted, Pantheon will be renamed Hyperledger Besu (a Japanese term for base or foundation).
The approval would bring Pantheon’s protocol under Hyperledger, joining blockchain projects like Hyperledger Fabric by IBM and Hyperledger Sawtooth by Intel.
? Coinbase Now Allows You to Access Dapps on Desktop Browsers
Coinbase Wallet’s decentralized web feature will allow users to link to supported Dapps from any browser using a new system called Walletlink.
The San Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange announced today in a blog post, the open-sourced Walletlink acts as a “secure bridge” between the Coinbase ecosystem and the traditional web.
The feature will enable Coinbase Wallet users to access and administer their funds – separate from their crypto holdings on Coinbase.com – from a desktop Dapp interface for the first time, said Coinbase Wallet product lead Sid Coelho-Prabhu.
? Circle Is Raising a $100 Million Fund for Its Crowdfunding Arm
Circle is hiring a new general partner to raise a $100 million venture capital fund.
The fund will take advantage of the deal flow coming through SeedInvest, the equity crowdfunding startup that Circle acquired in March 2019.
The listing on LinkedIn says: “The Partner will be expected to develop and drive an investment thesis designed to leverage SeedInvest’s sizable deal flow and its unique network of 250,000 investors to maximize returns.”
SeedInvest emphasizes itself a registry of potential startup investments that have been thoroughly vetted by the firm before they are shown to users.
? Nonprofit Launches Blockchain Platform for Credit History in Sierra Leone
San Francisco-based nonprofit Kiva, a company that crowdfunds loans for financial inclusion, has launched a blockchain platform for credit history with the government of Sierra Leone.
According to a Reuters report on Aug. 21, Kiva and President of Sierra Leone Julius Maada Bio jointly launched the blockchain initiative in the country’s capital.
The platform will use biometric data collected by the government, such as fingerprints, in order to access the credit history of citizens in the country. This will purportedly give a way for lenders to obtain citizens’ credit history.

We are seeing a very high level of fear (or low level of greed). I posted below a graph of their Fear & Greed Index followed by a graph of the Bitcoin Price.
In the last 18 months, the indicator dipped strongly 2 times before and when it did you can see the reaction by BTC a few weeks later !
To see this graph, go to my previous blog post

STEEM Trading Update by my friend @cryptopassion
Here is the chart of yersterday :
Here is the current chart :
So the bounce from the support line created from the lows looks quiet powerfull. We are going quickly in direction of the resistance line at 0.18$. The question will be to see if we will be able to break it this time or if we will play ping pong between these 2 lines. Stay carefull, I’m not sure that the bounce on the BTC will continue so we could be heavly impacted on the STEEM.
