Press Crypto News
At a friend's house today I met someone that works for Amazon as a software engineer. After a long discussion the subject of crypto came up and I jokingly asked when Amazon will begin accepting btc as payment. To my surprise, he told me it's a topic that has been discussed multiple times and they are trying to find a way to deal with returns since there's so much volatility.
Now, this is coming from a software engineer and not someone in management, but it's great to hear that these discussions are being had to bring forth the next step in the global adoption of cryptos.

This is here because of the minimum character requirement for text post on this suubreddit. I don’t even know what the minimum is so I’m going to keep typing. This seems like the first step in listing it to the general public. Based on the Coinbase listing rules I believe the main requirement is reaching a certain amount of liquidity to list it on the general market. Is this enough characters yet?

Do you have recommendations to look on some upcoming decentralized exchanges? Which should I have in mind? I only know forkdelta, etherdelta and bisq. Maybe with iota support.
However, Bisq is confusing, slow and only support few coins.
There are thousands of blockchain or derivative projects trying to solve niche technical problems, the genius per capita count is high in this area of research, but what is forgotten are the soft problems, stepping back looking at the average user, then realizing that 50% of all potential users are less competent than that average user.
Let’s start putting more focus on UI/UX, intuitive design, technology abstraction (specifically key management).
The current state of crypto projects is what IRC was to current day social media.
IRC was a great concept, had niche followings globally, it had the power to do whatever Facebook and Twitter can do now, however it was hard to use and thus never reached mass market adoption.
We need someone to do for Crypto, what Zuckerberg did for Social Media.
Hello, to give some backstory to how I was initially hacked here is a post I made that somehow ended up being top post on this sub: https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/8pyha5/my_binance_account_with_50k_has_been_hacked/
Since this happened I have had a very long month of speaking with Microsoft support everyday to try and retrieve my hacked email and they finally came to a conclusion. They told me to submit X information and I did, after waiting a month for a response they have said they fully acknowledge I am the account owner but with any Hotmail account that has had fraudulent activity on it what they do is indefinitely suspend the account and cannot give me access back to it. In turn I have lost a lot more then this Binance account, but almost my whole career unfortunately. But sticking to the topic of Binance they will not allow me to regain access unless I send the support ticket through the email associated with the account which is literally impossible as it has been suspended forever and no one can access it. I have the phone number, the google authenticator, the 2 step verification photos on the account are me, and prior to being locked out of the account I was instructed by a member of the Binance team named Jager to submit a photo of myself with my passport and a note that says "Please change my email to Beemail@example.com" which I did. So I have undeniable proof that I am the owner of this Binance account but they need the ticket to be submitted from the email associated with the account and Microsoft will not give anyone access to the email and has suspended it forever making this impossible. I am in the process of suing my phone provider Rogers which caused this whole problem in the first place and they have claimed full responsibility for what has happened. We are moving forward with the case very soon, so at least there is still some hope.
What to take from this: Don't use Hotmail

The PayFair escrow platform added the long awaited Bitcoin trading to their platform. Now as it may seem insignificant, the after effect is potentially huge as this allows for people to trade Bitcoin, specially in countries where crypto currencies are limited or even banned.
PayFair is the decentralized version of Localbitcoins (where I bought my first ever crypto currency, Bitcoin), so with that in mind, I have quite a good understanding at the gap that is filled with PayFair. Since they offer an escrow system, it makes it safer to trade with another individual and gives me peace of mind. The nice thing is, I can trade with FIAT.
PayFair has also been designed to enable you trade basically anything, NOT only Cryptos. This is actually quite a huge feature, selling your car privately for instance. I know I'd like that peace of mind from the escrow system to ensure that the deal goes smoothly and that both parties gets, what they intended when starting the deal.
If you haven't looked at PayFair yet, I'd suggest to look more into.
We have taken your feedback to make this subreddit better by establishing quality guidelines these past few months. This helps us improve the quality of the subreddit by excluding low-quality posts, such as pre-announcements, unverified announcements, memes, and more.
We have wanted to focus on the other side of the equation - making sure high-quality content was highly accessible.
To that end, we are announcing that we are reaching out to content creators directly to share their quality content in more prominent ways on the r/CryptoCurrency platforms.
If you are a content creator that consistently makes high-quality content and would like to expand your reach to hundreds of thousands of people, we encourage you to apply to host events. Your content will undertake significant screening from the moderators to make sure the content is factual, important, impactful, well-researched, and represents an important point of view.
We are looking for hosts of Reddit AMAs and Discord live audio events. We are especially interested in people who want to produce recurring content.
We feel that working directly with content creators will make sure that the community always has access to high-quality content. The best of these initiates will be shared prominently across our platforms.
Expect more announcements in the coming weeks as we launch this program and select content creators.
Q: How will the content creators be decided?
We want to make sure content creators are passionate, knowledgeable, kind, and represent an important point of view. We are looking for influencers who are willing to research the information behind a story, not just recite the information stated on there. We are looking to get a representation of people from a variety of projects, especially those that are not affiliated with specific projects.
We will not illegally discriminate in the selection process. Our moderation team is diverse, and we will work together to assess different creators on a wide variety of factors. We aim to be as transparent as possible. We will not give priority to specific projects.
Q: What content do you prefer?
We want quality content that contributes in a meaningful way to the cryptocurrency ecosystem. The ability to thoughtfully consider different viewpoints, compare/contrast projects in a meaningful way, and keep an unbiased approach is encouraged. We look for passion. In general, we prefer family-friendly content.
Q: Does anyone receive money?
No. The moderators do not receive money (bribes) from content creators to host their content. The creators are not compensated directly for producing their content. All of the produced content is released under the Creative Commons license, meaning it can be shared freely with attribution.
Q: How will the content be shared?
Content includes Reddit AMAs (held directly on Reddit), Discord voice chats, and recordings of these voice chats uploaded to a dedicated YouTube channel if desired. We do not currently offer live video events.
Q: Do I need to be a large influencer to apply?
No. You can be speaking to yourself for all we care. We will select you if you have a clear passion and produce high-quality content, regardless of current following. That being said, we of course need proof that you have created quality content in the past.
Q: What if I have another question?
Q: How can I apply?
Applications are due on July 20.
