In today’s cryptocurrency news, one of the hottest topics is the one where the cryptocurrency IOTA has officially announced its compatibility with the popular hardware wallet Ledger. According to the news, the IOTA coin holders will be able to store their coins (MIOTA) on the ledger Nano S device.
The press release that was published on IOTA’s blog detailed the new partnership, stating:
“[T]he Ledger hardware wallets integrate with the IOTA Trinity and Romeo Wallets and isolate user’s seeds (the key for their account) from their computer or smartphone, providing another layer of security from hackers.”
The CEO of Ledger, Eric Larcheveque, further explained that “providing the highest level of security and quality is a major focus at both Ledger and IOTA.” Currently, we know IOTA as an altcoin that aims for scalability and free transactions, as well as application in the Internet of Things (IoT) field.
Meanwhile, MIOTA is a top twenty cryptocurrency by its market cap. Running on a technology called “Tangle” which is quite different from blockchain, IOTA has fully explained how its technology works and what the Tangle is all about – in a separate blog post.
As seen in one Reddit discussion back in May this year, IOTA holders have been waiting for this type of compatibility for months. They have been using hardware wallets (such as the Nano S) to store their assets offline and prevent them from being stolen (online).
Where Does Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Stand The Day After The Fork?
“Even if the SV mining collation do catch up with ABC or if they manage to do hostile chain re-orgs, its highly unlikely BCash ABC users & investors will ever switch to follow SV. ABC users just need to be patient & wait it out. @CalvinAyre & the SV miners will eventually give up,” BitMEX wrote on Twitter, doubling down on Jonathan Bier’s pre-fork prediction that miners would ultimately abandon the BSV fork.Currently, people are wondering how does the BCH hard fork affect other projects such as Bitcoin. The good news here is that the fork has no effect on BTC other than making it even less likely that Bitcoin Cash (BCH) will overtake Bitcoin (BTC) and claim its mantle.

‘Time May Be Right’ For Home Crypto Mining: Coinbase CTO
“The big difference with decentralized mining in 2018 is that there are now so many different coins and tokens out there that it’s almost certainly possible to make a profit – or at least mine a decent amount of some crypto – via a decentralized home mining device like Coinmine.”This is a notable perspective mostly because Srinivasan previously founded 21.co which was a startup that emerged from stealth in 2015 and had an ambitious plan to embed Bitcoin miners in everyday devices- which was then backed by Coinbase Ventures. Following the Coinmine announcement, Srinivasan wrote:

“I believe that decentralized mining is an important idea and worth trying again. It’s mining as Satoshi intended: many devices around the world with no single point of failure." Srinivasan concluded.
