Bitcoin Diamond (BCD) is a cryptocurrency which was created as a fork from Bitcoin (BTC) which is the most dominant coin in the latest cryptocurrencies news. Unlike many altcoins which have been posting double-digit gains this year, Bitcoin Diamond tripled and went from $0.30 (January 1st) to $1 which is the price at which the coin is trading today.
Right now, there is a bullish momentum surrounding the coin and BCD is viral in many charts. For those of you who don’t know what this coin represents, we are sharing it all below.
It all started in November 2017 when two Bitcoin miners named “Team Evey” and “Team 007” were dissatisfied with the operation of the Bitcoin Core protocol. Even though BTC was the first cryptocurrency which gained mainstream recognition, the two miners wanted to make something new.
The hard fork saw the creation of Bitcoin Diamond – a cryptocurrency which wanted to improve the transaction times on the Bitcoin platform. They saw the requirement of having the 1MB block size as a leftover from the early days of Bitcoin history – and hoped to prevent having the blocks becoming congested with the amount of pending transactions, just like its mempool.
To achieve all of this, Bitcoin Diamond (BCD) offered support for larger block sizes (even eight times larger). The transaction capacity of the blocks was also supposed to be provided with a five-fold boost. Bitcoin Diamond also went for increasing the unit block to allow for more storage trading with the goal of optimizing storage on its network and keeping the generation of isolated blocks at a minimum.
Despite the popularity of BTC and the Bitcoin news now (considering the fact that BTC is trading above $10,000), Bitcoin Diamond (BCD) is also in a good momentum and has demonstrated to work well as a system and as an altcoin, too.
The latest altcoin news show that BCD is trading at $1 which is more than 300% in gains compared to its January 1st price at $0.30. The main mission for the team now is to make BCD a more accessible coin and offer more inclusive mining with its platform.
In addition to the six verified wallets supported by Bitcoin Diamond (BCD), any secure Bitcoin wallet can be used to store BCD before reaching the predetermined height as of block 495866.

Decentraland ICO Crypto Finally Opens After Three Years
“The users are in control of the digital assets, which is something that hasn’t happened before. I think that over time players will gravitate toward games where they are more in control.”As per the other Decentraland news, HTC announcing that the altcoin MANA will be their strategic partner, MANA spiked almost two times against the US dollar. For those of you who are asking themselves why these unique crypto assets are part of HTC and Samsung’s plans, the truth is that both smartphone manufacturers believe that their potential exceeds the realm of payments and goes above and beyond the popularized cryptocurrencies in the likes of Ripple, EOS, Litecoin, Stellar and TRON.
0x Developers Launch Liquidity Aggregation Tool: Report
“There are tons of projects that use the liquidity from individual DEX networks, but the liquidity isn’t connected. Our goal is to provide the best price for any token trading pair on the market...it’s pretty much guaranteed with 0x API because we’re just pulling from networks that have the best prices.”For example, while 0x is quite liquid when it comes to popular trading pairs such as DAI and ETH or USDC to DAI, he says that there’s a lack of liquidity on other coins such as Augur that could be more liquid on another network. 0x wants to solve this problem by creating an order that will be split between all DEX networks and returning back the best price there is. With only a few code lines, the 0x developers can now connect to the API and get a quote in the back end so they will be able to execute the transaction at the best prices. Taylor continued:
“We want to be the most liquid decentralized exchange, but we also want to provide developers the best price. If that’s not on 0x native liquidity, we’re happy to give them on Kyber, for example, because that’s a better developer experience. ‘’0x API does not have a bridge with dYdX which is a margin lending exchange that started sourcing liquidity from 0x in 2019. The platform has a closed pool as Matt explained so while the maker that uses 0x API could potentially make an order on the margin trade on dydx, there is not a single possibility on the taker side to fill dydx trades via 0x API.
