Report: EOS Loses 400,000 EOS Due to Security Glitches

Published

on

The crypto market has been bearish for some time now and a lot of tokens have had their fair share of dips. Likewise, EOS has also experienced quite a dip. However, it may seem that EOS is not suffering losses from the bearish market alone but has also experienced significant losses due to some security glitches. These issues have led to the loss of 400,000 EOS which is about $200,000, at the time of writing.

However, a report from Peckshield revealed that EOS ecosystem has been suffering from some security glitches. There were many loopholes at the early stages of the dApp ecosystem right from its launch in June as it took awhile for the system to go live. EOS, however, made a fast growth in the blockchain market attracting billions of dollars worth of investment as well as building over 200 dApps and carrying out as much as 600 million transactions.

Despite the numbers that EOS was cashing in, it had underlying problems. For one, its security issues can be traced back as far as July when a dApp, Werewolf game fell victim to an overflow attack.  EOS also had a very large number of gaming apps launched on its platform. The platform is popularly known ‘ETHEREUM KILLER’ recorded $1 million in august ABOUT $360,00 more than the drops of Ethereum. However, more attacks s

One of the gaming dApps on  EOS, EOSBet was faced with a RAM devour problem in August. The report, however, reveals that as time goes on, more attacks are likely to occur “due to the negligence of dApp developers.” The report also reveals that most of the glitches the EOS ecosystem suffered from after November were loopholes that weren’t addressed earlier in the ecosystem.

Also, the report unveiled that while the EOS blockchain ecosystem boasts of 200 dApps and more than 500,000 users, only 180,000 are active out of 500,000 accounts. The report states that while 120,000 are group control accounts active users on the platform are less than implied as there are more than 200,000 silent accounts.

However some researchers such as Guo Yonggang believe the attacks may be from external forces not related to the blockchain itself, he suggests cyberattack groups. However, the report noted that “The better way is for developers to build their own early warning platform. The benefit is that it can be implemented. Monitoring, as soon as the alarm sounds, immediately turn the game off.”

Ohio Becomes the First State to Accept Bitcoin for Taxes

Published

on

Bitcoin doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Reports have it that the state of Ohio is set to become the first in the United States to start accepting bitcoin payments for tax bills. The Wall Street Journal reports that the taxes will be limited to businesses purposes. Also, BitPay, an Atlanta firm would convert the Cryptocurrency to dollars first as the tax would not be going directly into Ohio’s coffers.

Ohio is making this move to support cryptocurrency as a means of payment. The report revealed that before local businesses can pay their taxes using BTC, they will have to register on the OhioCrypto.com. After registration, they’ll be able to pay taxes, sales and employee withholding taxes in crypto.

Josh Mandel, state Treasurer believes that the program will help Ohio stand out in crypto adoption although he claims that it is not a move by the state to make bitcoin a legal currency in the state. Equally, it is not known the amount of business that will patrons this program. Mandel, however, claims that some business has asked to utilise BTC as a medium of tax payment. He also revealed that the move to make Bitcoin a medium of tax payment was made possible since he did not require a bill to be passed to implement the program.

On the other hand, some other states in the US such as Arizona, Georgia, and Illinois, had been unable to implement bitcoin payments for taxes as the proposals got stalled in their state legislatures. Mandel, however, claimed that he can direct the office to accept bitcoin without the state legislatures’ approval.

This would be a significant feat in the crypto sphere if accomplished. Bitcoin has been losing face recently and this could help it regain its value. Other states such as New York already making plans to utilise cryptocurrency.
