Hi Bitcoiners!
I’m back with the seventeenth monthly Bitcoin news recap.
For those unfamiliar, each day I pick out the most popularelevant/interesting stories in Bitcoin and save them. At the end of the month I release them in one batch, to give you a quick (but not necessarily the best) overview of what happened in bitcoin over the past month.

Bitcoin Companies Collaborate on “Spectrum” Token Protocol for Lightning Network

Bitcoin Companies Collaborate on “Spectrum” Token Protocol for Lightning Network

CoinDesk article: https://www.coindesk.com/startups-debut-first-protocol-for-issuing-tokens-via-bitcoins-lightning-network

Several Bitcoin industry players have been working for the last few months to provide a protocol that will allow cryptographically-secured digital assets on Bitcoin’s Lightning Network, called Spectrum. The group includes interests from Bitfinex, Bitrefill, Poseidon Group, Fulgur Ventures, BHB Network, Chainside, and inbitcoin.

These businesses each see great potential for establishing a token system that can demonstrate how Lightning’s layered network can provide instantaneous transacting of digital assets.

Redefining Digital Assets

This project revives the RGB protocol work that was initially bootstrapped by BHB Network, sponsored by the Poseidon Group, and led by developer Alekos Filini, who recently left the project to join Blockstream. RGB is a modern protocol loosely based on earlier “colored coin” solutions, but newly improved and optimized for second-layer solutions to allow tokens on Bitcoin. A new roadmap is being written, and a new team of developers has been tasked with making digital tokens compatible with the Lightning Network.

After some preparation, the group intends to submit a BOLT specification proposal and release an open-source implementation and wallet for the Spectrum token protocol on the Lightning Network.

The Spectrum protocol will be compatible with the RGB suite of modules, which includes the Kaleidoscope reference application for libraries, and a direct payload passage module called Bifröst.

“Bitrefill is taking the long view on the Lightning Network’s role in the future of internet commerce and we see several use cases for tokens that the Spectrum protocol can make possible.” John Carvalho, CCO, Bitrefill

“We hope to have Tether transacting over the Lightning Network by the end of the year. Bitfinex will continue supporting Lightning projects and features in our platforms.” Paolo Ardoino, CTO, Bitfinex*“*

At Fulgur Ventures we believe that further development of the Lightning Network capabilities helps Bitcoin to become a widely used decentralized financial ecosystem.” Oleg Mikhalsky, Fulgur Ventures

“Bitcoin, both with its base layer and with its Lightning Network component, will not only prove disruptive in itself, but it will improve the landscape for tokenized assets, allowing everyone to leverage the world’s most secure decentralized value transmission system as an anchor for fungible and infungible tokens.” Giacomo Zucco, BHB Network

“inbitcoin has been closely interested in RGB and involved since the initial brainstorming. Now we are helping to make it happen within mobile applications and physical plug-and-play solutions.” Marco Amadori, CEO, inbitcoin

The most important projects needed in Cryptocurrencies today!

The most important projects needed in Cryptocurrencies today!

Basic infrastructure, education systems, Cryptocurrency ATM's, user friendly wallets, multiple exchanges, and most importantly Education, Education, Education.

Basic infrastructure will get exponentially better as the main problems in cryptocurrency as a medium of exchange becomes more mainstream. Right now as lightning network evolves for bitcoin, and the ability for micro transactions on the block-chain grow we have no choice but to speculate on adaption. The ease of use for average consumers that would like to use cryptocurrencies for everyday purchases will happen. Exchanges are attached to regulations, cultures, and social structures, There are 194 countries that all need a healthy competition of exchanges. There should be more crypto exchanges catering to different cultures and social structures around the world, as altcoins grow and cryptocurrency gains popularity the means of secure exchange is more and more necessary. Ease of use wallets are long overdue most wallets are lacking innovation and good UI/UX. Being able to use cryptocurrency will become a lot easier to use and purchase as the technology grows around the world.

A few exchanges that are out there now that could help you get into the Bitcoin and altcoins fun!!

Here are the places to check your cryptocurrency daily prices.

Wallets have to get the game going as well as far as making user experience intuitive, secure, and up to date.

Always make sure to use a wallet that gives you your private key!!

Platform tokens are going to explode as they are required to use general purpose decentralized networks that support a wide variety of applications.

Platform tokens are used to mediate use of the platform like gas on Ethereum or Neo. Some of the top platform tokens out on the market today.

I gather most of my information from certain figures in the crypto space.

Here are some of my talking head mentors in this game in no particular order! Try and stay away from schills like Doug Polk, SupoMan and John Mcafee until you understand the space!
