From Bitcoin’s 1% to a trippy new way to track Ethereum transactions, here’s a look at some of the stories breaking in the world of crypto.

Bitcoin

Former Google product director Steve Lee is offering a new take on why it’s still early days for Bitcoin. According to Lee, if you own a relatively small amount of Bitcoin, you’re guaranteed to be in a unique club that only 1% of the world’s population can ever enter.

This math is based on the fixed supply of Bitcoin, which is set to ultimately create only about 21 million coins.

Ethereum 

A trippy new website can turn your Ethereum wallet transactions into sound.

Tokenville Radio lets you type in any Ethereum address to hear a digital audio translation of that wallet’s activity.

Ripple and XRP

Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse says after talking with hundreds of leaders at financial institutions around the world, Ripple has a solid perspective on just how many are interested in blockchain.

According to Garlinghouse, 75% of “payment pros” are looking into how they can take advantage of crypto.

Litecoin

CEX.IO is listing Litecoin (LTC) trading pairs.

The cryptocurrency exchange stopped Litecoin support back in 2017 to focus on other upgrades, but now LTC is back by popular demand following significant interest from CEX customers.

IOTA

Bitpanda, one of Europe’s leading retail exchanges for buying and selling cryptocurrencies, is now one of the first companies to use IOTA Hub in a production environment.

IOTA Hub is a simplified token management system that allows exchanges and other enterprises to integrate IOTA more easily, with full support taking place within weeks instead of months.

AION

The hardware wallet leader Ledger has added AION to its flagship product, the Nano S.

According to a new post on Medium, “AION Coin holders can benefit from the added security of holding their cryptographic private keys in Ledger’s industry-leading solutions.”
