    Kraken is one of the earliest crypto exchange which supports Bitcoin majorly but they kept adding support for Ethereum and other altcoins as and when they entered market. With the increase in number of new traders in recent days, they experienced exponential growth. So, in order to help mitigate the strain on the platform, they announced delisting some of the illiquid trading pairs and temporarily suspending all advanced order types.

    These changes will go into effect on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 around 6 am UTC (Monday August 21 around 11 pm Pacific).

    The following pairs will be delisted with all outstanding orders being canceled

    XBT/GBP
    ETH/GBP
    XRP/CAD
    XRP/JPY
    EOS/EUR
    EOS/USD
    XLM/EUR
    XLM/USD
    GNO/EUR
    GNO/USD
    REP/USD

    They do not have any plans to re-list any of these pairs soon, though this is a possibility once they have ample capacity to do so. Overall plan is to reduce the load on the current platform until upgrades can be made that will enable them to smoothly scale capacity.

    The ability to create new advanced orders will also be temporarily suspended (so user will only be able to create basic limit and market orders).

    Open orders will remain open until cancelled or executed, but you will no longer be able to create new orders in any of the following advanced types:

    Stop Loss
    Take Profit
    Stop Loss, Take Profit
    Stop Loss, Take Profit Limit
    Stop Loss Limit
    Take Profit Limit
    Trailing Stop
    Trailing Stop Limit
    Stop, Limit

    This applies to all currency pairs but the suspension is temporary only. Advanced orders will return in a month or two as soon as they are better able to process them.

    At present, Kraken supports trading for Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Augur (REP), ICONOMI (ICN), Zcash (ZEC), Genosis (GNO), Tether ‘Crypto dollar’ (USDT), Dash (DASH), Monero (XMR), Melon Tokens (MLN), Ripple (XRP) and many more. Latest addition is Bitcoin Cash (BCH) on August 7, 2017. Fiat currency supported by Kraken are USD, GBP and EUR.

    TREZOR, one of the most popular hardware wallet encountered a security concern on August 17, 2017. The security issue was brought to attention by an individual researcher, via Responsible Disclosure. An article was widely shared among the different cryptocurrency communities and social networks, describing a vulnerability.

    Soon, a blog by SatoshiLabs addressing concerns about TREZOR firmware (1.5.2) was published. They acknowledged, while the description of the vulnerability was rather accurate, several important details and claims were not, thus contributing to the misinformation about TREZOR. Later, they released a security update to TREZOR on August 16, 2017; a new firmware version — 1.5.2 — was pushed out to all users. This update fixes a security issue which affects all devices with firmware versions lower than 1.5.2.

    TREZOR notified about this update. Refer to the User Manual if you need assistance with the firmware update. For users with Bootloader version 1.3.0, please consult this guide first.

    In continuation to the solution to the issue, they released a full report on the vulnerability and its fix, available in 1.5.2. A medium blog on Fixing physical memory access issue in TREZOR was published on August 18, 2017.

    This report answers to most of the FAQ's related to this vulnerability like -
    What was the main purpose of this security update?
    How does the attack work?
    How did we fix the vulnerability?
    What about the already sold devices?
    Why is the device memory not encrypted?

    Responsible Disclosure Timeline
    1-Aug-2017: Vulnerability discovered and reported
    16-Aug-2017: Firmware 1.5.2 released
    17-Aug-2017: Addressed concerns and misinformation about 1.5.2
    18-Aug-2017: Report on the vulnerability published

    Highlights of First ENS Workshop at London

    Ethereum Name Service (ENS) team organized First ENS Workshop at London on August 11–13 2017. About 27 people, representing individuals and organisations from throughout the Ethereum community, participated in the workshop. Nick Johnson,the lead developer of ENS published the result of the Workshop on.

    The group discussed a number of important issues for the future of ENS, and came to consensus on several decisions essential to planning ENS’s future development.

    State of the ENS

    You can watch the slides from the presentation.

    • 180,822 names were registered between the start of the soft launch and the end of July.

    • 35% of auctions with known names had more than one bid, while only 7.2% of unknown names had more than one bid.

    • The median price of an auction with more than one bid was Ξ0.05 for a known name, and Ξ0.02 for an unknown name.

    • Ξ8,553 was lost due to failures to reveal bids.

    • 8,556 unique accounts own at least one name. Of those, the 123 accounts (1.4%) with the most names held account for 50% of registered names; those 123 accounts paid Ξ34,077 (20% of the total) to register those names.

    • Metamask, Etherscan and MyEtherWallet were the only services supporting ENS on mainnet on launch day, those have since been joined by Leth, imToken, Mist, Bittrex and Swarm, with Status, Kraken, Shapeshift, and District0x expected to add support soon.

    Highlights of the workshop

    • Dispute Resolution - The best approach for ENS is to initially develop a dispute resolution and abuse management system as a ‘second layer’, allowing clients and users to subscribe to one of potentially multiple registries that implement blacklists or ‘darklists’ for abusive domains.

    • Permanent Registrar Design - Payment of fees for auctions and renewals was voted most than the current deposit-based system.
      Vlad Zamfir proposed a feedback mechanism into the registrar that adjusts those prices in response to name deregistration rates, attempting to maintain a fixed rate of deregistration.

    • Securing subdomains = At present no guarantees of noninterference is offered to users. Based on a writeup by Dan Finlay, Nick Johnson has developed a first version of a lock-up contract for deeds.

    • DNS integration - The formation of a subgroup to determine how best to build an interface between the two systems, with goals of offering ENS native resources over DNS, as well as hosting authoritative DNS records on ENS, which can provide security equivalent to DNSSEC, but without trusted third-parties, was supported by most of the participants.

    • ENS Applications - Piper Merriam gave a talk on ethpm, an Ethereum package management system, and how it utilises ENS to achieve its goals.
      At the end of the workshop, attendees shared their goals for future projects built on top of ENS.

    • ENS Security - Jim McDonald gave a talk on securing ENS names using a second-layer solution.

    The Blockchain technology, is no more a new term for government of any country, specially those who understand the importance of technology for the growth and development of their residents. Since inception of Bitcoin, blockchain technology has been spreading worldwide but after Ethereum joins the movement, mass adoption has increased significantly. It has become much easier to develop use-cases for everyday need. With smart contract running on top of Ethereum blockchain, many projects have surfaced and central agencies have started exploring the possibility of implementing as per their requirement.

    Couple of years back, government of many countries were reluctant even to consider blockchain for study. Asian countries like Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong are among early adapters. Nonetheless, in past few months, many countries have moved slowly towards it. European Parliament  Research Services (EPRS) published an in-depth analysis report, People bank of China announced Fintech committee, Russia announced to digitize their national currency, Australia removed double taxation and on verge of tokenizing Australian dollar, Government of India seek public opinion on its regulation, US government implementing regulations.

    Recently, Government of Ukraine signed a new deal with blockchain based startup PROPY, which aims to build decentralized global estate market. This is one of the several partnerships and initiatives undertaken by the Ukrainian government to explore and adopt blockchain technology. In April 2017, The State Agency for eGovernance of Ukraine has also signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the BitFury Group, the world’s largest full service Blockchain technology company to create the world’s first full-scale blockchain eGovernance program for the country.

    PROPY, in partnership with the Ukrainian government, gets magnificent start to its decentralized marketplace and title registry on blockchain. This will allow foreign investors to purchase real estate more easily and securely, and enable Ukrainian properties to be sold entirely online. Propy's token sale to raise fund for the development of the project started today and will end on September 15, 2017.

    Ukraine, adopting blockchain technology for real estate property sales and purchase “will benefit all counterparties in real estate transactions through fostering greater transparency, efficiencies, security, and compliance”, said Oleksandr Ryzhenko, the head of the State Agency for eGovernance of Ukraine.

    Our ambition is for Ukraine to be one of the world’s foremost nations in establishing a comprehensive blockchain ecosystem, and the real estate sector forms an important part of our overall blockchain strategy,” he added.

    In a press release on August 11, 2017, the authority said that on the legal status of cryptocurrencies and its regulation, they are already engaged in a dialogue with the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine, and the issue will be addressed at the next meeting of the Financial Stability Council , which has been scheduled at the end of this month.
