  • It was recently reported that HTC will be releasing a new mobile phone utilizing decentralized ledger technology, but Litecoin (LTC) founder Charlie Lee announced July 29th that he will be one of HTC’s advisors on the smartphone. The phone will be called Exodus and is expected to be the first blockchain phone. Exodus’s built-in cryptocurrency wallet will now natively support LTC and the Lightning Network (LN), in addition to Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).
  • KICKICO, a popular crowdfunding website for initial coin offerings (ICOs), had $7.7 million in KICK tokens stolen from the platform. These hackers used an unconventional approach to steal the coins and not be initially noticed. The hackers gained access to the Kick tokens’ smart contract owner’s private key, destroyed the coins, and made new coins in their own addresses. This kept the amount of coins on the network the same, sidestepping typical security measures checking for coin thefts. KickICO has regained access to the coins and is safely keeping them in cold storage to return to its users.
  • Cointelegraph.com reported that digital asset exchange Huobi will begin supporting trades in the Indian rupee (INR) on its over-the-counter (OTC) service. Huobi’s peer-to-peer (P2P) trading platform will allow INR users free trading in Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Tether (USDT). This comes at a good time for Indian cryptocurrency traders after the Reserve Bank of India banned banks from dealing with cryptocurrency-related companies in early July.
  • IOHK, the company behind the popular cryptocurrency Cardano (ADA), announced that it has launched the testnet for a new Cardano virtual machine. The virtual machine, called IELE, provides developers with a stronger and more reliable platform for developing smart contracts on Cardano’s blockchain.
