Welcome to the Daily Crypto News: A complete Press Review, Coin Calendar and Trading Analysis. Enjoy!
Telegram’s blockchain project, TON, has entered the last preparation stage before going live.
The code for running a blockchain node was released on the test network portal late Friday. Now developers and community members interested in the messaging app provider’s blockchain can start kicking the tires of a full node, a validator node and the blockchain explorer.
The release had been previously scheduled for Sept. 1, according to the sources familiar with the project’s progress, but was delayed a few days for unclear reasons.
French hardware wallets manufacturer Ledger announced that its cryptocurrency management software Ledger Live now supports Ethereum (ETH) ERC-20 tokens.
In a blog post published on Sept. 5, Ledger announced the version 1.14.0 of its Ledger Live software that now supports over 1,250 Ethereum-based ERC-20 tokens. The update has already been released for both mobile and desktop versions of the software.
Bitcoin has been trading in a range around $10,400 today. Yesterday it appeared that the coin would finally cross the $11,000 mark, a price the cryptocurrency has not seen since Aug. 13, but it fell short and corrected down to $10,313. At press time the coin is trading at $10,521, up 1% on the day.
Twitter and Square CEO Jack Dorsey stated that there are no plans for a platform-specific “Twitcoin” cryptocurrency, noting that he will instead focus on promoting Bitcoin (BTC).
Open standards are better
According to Australian news outlet The Sydney Morning Herald’s article published on Sept. 5, Dorsey is confident that Bitcoin is still the most likely candidate to beсome the internet’s native currency. Twitter CEO noted:
“I think open internet standards serve every person better than ones controlled or started by companies.”
It seems like everyone and their dog is a cryptojacker these days. Just a couple days ago, the US Department of Justice charged Paige Thompson, the ex-Amazon employee who hacked into hundreds of millions of customer accounts from credit card company Capital, with the crime.
Thompson was exploiting the computing services of cloud servers to mine crypto, making a tidy profit.
And “cybergendarmes,” the French police’s crack cybersecurity team, just rumbled a hacking group that used a network of 850,000 computers to mine the cryptocurrency Monero, reports the BBC.
It comes as no surprise, then, to hear that cybersecurity researchers from McAfee Labs just found that crypto-jacking campaigns have risen 29 percent, according to a report released this week.

STEEM Trading Update by my friend @cryptopassion
Here is the chart of yersterday :
Here is the current chart :
The STEEM is doing a similar pattern than the BTC but I’m not sure that we will be able to go test the 0.18$. We drop litte bit too much compared to BTC (as it is often the case) and so that resistance level is still quiet far. If the BTC starts again to correct, I expect that we won’t test at all the 0.18$ resistance and that the drop will come back on the STEEM also.
