Weekly news review (August 17-23)

Weekly news review (August 17-23)
Hello, Community! It's been quite a week, don't you agree? Let's dive into the news!
https://preview.redd.it/2k7n5ljuwqi31.png?width=1200&format=png&auto=webp&s=f23ed393e6fca416815a4c3c10c1a6a60756a6e7

Venezuela’s largest department store will install blockchain-enabled cash registers in its 49 retail outlets.
The megastore operator Traki announced August 22, it will integrate Singapore-based Pundi X’s point-of-sale device, XPOS, to offer a cryptocurrency payment rail for shoppers.
Already available in 30 countries, Pundi aims to sell 100,000 XPOS devices by 2021. This is part of the firm’s plan to introduce cryptocurrencies for everyday use, through an ecosystem of financial products like its XPASS crypto debit cards and Xwallet.
The XPOS payments system supports payments in a range of cryptocurrencies including BTC, ETH, Binance’s BNB stablecoin, as well as Pundi X’s own NPXS and NPXSXEM tokens.

Top cryptocurrency exchange Binance is launching an open blockchain project “Venus” focused on developing localized stablecoins worldwide.
In an announcement published on Aug. 19, the exchange argues it is well-positioned to launch such a currency ecosystem in light of its existing public chain technology, Binance Chain, wide user base and already established global compliance measures.
The exchange says it is seeking partnerships with governments, corporations, technology firms, and other cryptocurrency and blockchain projects in order to develop a new currency ecosystem that will empower both developed and developing countries.
Binance’s ambitious new venture appears to compete directly with plans from social media titan Facebook to launch a fiat-pegged stablecoin, Libra, that would power a global crypto payments network embedded into the company’s three wholly-owned apps: WhatsApp, Messenger, and Instagram.

One of the largest mobile providers in Austria is planning to accept cryptocurrency for payment at certain store locations.
A1, which services some 5.1 million mobile and 2.1 million fixed lines across Austria, is testing cryptocurrency payments at store locations across Austria. Dash, ethereum, litecoin, stellar and XRP will be available for payment, according to a report by Austrian tech news site Futurezone.
The pilot program will also host payments for Alipay and WeChat Pay by the end of August. As of now, Futurezone listed seven initial locations accepting cryptocurrency payments across Austria.
Moreover, A1 told Futurezone that the payment option is not only for local Austrians but increasingly geared toward tourists.

Ukraine’s top law-enforcement and counterintelligence agency uncovered crypto mining equipment on site at a nuclear power plant.
According to local media reports, the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) confiscated six Radeon RX 470 GPU video cards, a motherboard, power supplies and extension cords, a USB and hard drive, and cooling units installed in the South Ukrainian Nuclear Power Plant on July 10.
All of the equipment was located in a single office, No. 104, in the administrative wing separate from the power facility, from the state-owned Energoatom enterprise.
The power plant is registered as a state secret and outside computer equipment is not authorized to enter the property.
The same day, a National Guard of Ukraine branch uncovered additional crypto mining equipment at same nuclear plant. In this search and seizure, 16 GPU video cards, 7 hard drives, 2 solid-state drives and router were uncovered.

Japanese cryptocurrency exchange Rakuten Wallet has launched trading a year after acquiring Everybody’s Bitcoin.
Confirmed in a press release on Aug. 19, Rakuten Wallet, which is a subsidiary of Japanese e-commerce giant Rakuten, said spot trading of three cryptocurrencies — Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) — was now live.
In future, developers plan to release an app for iOS and Android, use of which will be mandatory for deposits and withdrawals.
The exchange joins a rapidly expanding ecosystem on the Japanese market, with multiple competitors vying for a slice of the domestic cryptocurrency trade.

NordVPN Review - Honest Review

EDIT: Nord is having a 75% off sale AND All plans have 30-day money-back guarantee You can claim that deal by using our special link! @ www.buy-nord.com
NordVPN has been growing at a very fast pace since launching in 2012, and it’s now one of the largest VPN services on the market with over 12 million customers worldwide (according to NordVPN themselves).
NordVPN has grown so much that it now claims to be the “best VPN service provider of 2019” but we all know that’s easier said than done, right?
We needed to understand how good NordVPN really is and answer questions our readers have been asking us:
But before we dive into it, let's take a quick look at NordVPN’s pros and cons:
Pros
Cons
Works with
Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, Sky, HBO, Torrenting, Kodi
Available on
Windows Mac Ios Android Linux Price from
$2.99/mo
Still, want to know more about NordVPN and whether it’s the right VPN for you?
We’ve carefully tested every single NordVPN app so you can rest assured that we left no stone unturned.
Without further ado, let's get right into this review starting with NordVPN’s speed.
Speed & Reliability Very fast speeds across the world
NordVPN is a very fast VPN – as long as you connect to nearby VPN servers.
It’s not the fastest VPN there is (these VPNs are currently faster), but NordVPN is still very quick and you won’t experience any speed issues.
Both same-country (UK server to UK server) download and upload speeds are impressive, with minimal internet slowdown (around a 5-6% drop from our normal internet speeds).
This makes NordVPN a very good choice for both streaming fans and torrenters.
Speed results from our physical location in London (100Mbps fibre optic connection) to a London test server.
Before using NordVPN:
DOWNLOAD Mbps 94.83
UPLOAD Mbps 91.8
PING ms 3
When connected to NordVPN:
DOWNLOAD Mbps 90.51
UPLOAD Mbps 86.28
PING ms 5
Download speed without NordVPN: 94.83Mbps
Download speed with NordVPN: 90.51Mbps
Our download speed loss when NordVPN is running: 5%
As you can see, NordVPN registered very impressive speeds when we connected to a nearby VPN server. It’s less impressive – but still very usable – over long-distance connections, though.
Here are the average download and upload speeds connecting out from the UK to NordVPN’s servers:
USA: 47Mbps (download) & 48Mbps (upload) Germany: 78Mbps (download) & 77Mbps (upload) Singapore: 17Mbps (download) & 6Mbps (upload) Australia: 22Mbps (download) & 3Mbps (upload) Ping times are also fairly low on most of NordVPN’s servers, which is good for gaming although there are better VPNs available to gamers.
Server Locations Over 5,600 VPN servers spread across 60 countries worldwide
Globe with a blue flag 60 Countries Image of a city landscape 90+ Cities Image of a pink marker 5,600+ IP Addresses See all Server Locations NordVPN’s server list covers 60 countries – it isn’t the widest VPN server range we’ve seen, but it should almost certainly ensure there is a server located near you.
Screenshot of NordVPN Server List in App
NordVPN provides a whopping 5,600 VPN servers, none of which are virtual, with each server given a static IP address. This is the highest number of VPN servers provided by a top VPN service, which is impressive. Even better, NordVPN owns all of the servers in its network.
NordVPN’s server network covers all of the popular server locations such as the UK, the US, Australia, and Canada, as well as less common locations including Argentina, Egypt, and Albania.
NordVPN provides city-level server choices in five different countries, too:
Australia (five locations, 200+ servers) Canada (three locations, 400+ servers) Germany (two locations, 200+ servers) India (two locations, 20+ servers) The US (20 locations, 1,800+ servers) NordVPN used to offer city-level choice in the UK (London and Manchester) but recently removed the Manchester VPN servers as “their performance was lacking.” NordVPN have added even more servers in London in order to ensure the best speeds for those located in the UK.
Streaming & Torrenting An excellent choice for streaming & torrenting
Thanks to its SmartPlay technology, NordVPN consistently works with popular streaming services like Netflix and BBC iPlayer.
To watch Netflix, simply click on the US or UK VPN country server and the NordVPN app will automatically find the best option for you.
NordVPN also unlocks loads more Netflix libraries, including Canada, Japan, France, Italy, and Germany.
Not all of NordVPN’s UK servers provide access to BBC iPlayer, but a quick message to live chat will let you know which ones are currently working.
That will save you the trial-and-error of testing out all of NordVPN’s hundreds of UK servers. This is a big plus, as many other VPN providers can’t unlock BBC iPlayer.
Unrestricted access to streaming services doesn’t stop there. Many of NordVPN’s customers use the VPN service to stream:
Amazon Prime Video Hulu HBO Sling TV Sky Now TV Torrenting Torrenting (and other P2P traffic) isn’t allowed on every single NordVPN server, but there’s still more than enough server choice to keep torrenters and Kodi streamers happy.
You can torrent while connected to almost every country on NordVPN’s server list – these are listed under ‘Speciality Servers’ within in the app settings.
However, the following countries do not permit P2P:
Argentina Costa Rica Chile Cyrpus Egypt Georgia Indonesia Malaysia South Korea Taiwan Thailand Vietnam Ukraine United Arab Emirates If you attempt to torrent while connected to a VPN server that doesn’t support P2P NordVPN will simply re-route your traffic through a dedicated server located in either Canada or the Netherlands.
With plenty of added security features – such as its VPN kill switch – and a no-logs policy, NordVPN is without a doubt one of the safest VPNs for torrenting. Fast uploads and downloads make it a great choice too.
Bypassing Censorship Obfuscated VPN servers work in China intermittently
Since the VPN crackdown in China, NordVPN has become a little less reliable for residents or visitors in China, but it’s still a pretty good choice of VPN.
Users have reported that NordVPN’s obfuscated servers often bypass the Chinese censors, but others have experienced difficulties connecting to them.
NordVPN’s obfuscated servers are spread out fairly evenly, with options in North America, North Africa, Asia, and Europe, so you shouldn’t be too far away from one.
There are no obfuscated VPN servers available on the NordVPN iOS app, though, so iPhone users may struggle to connect from China without some manual configuration.
See our latest VPN recommendations if you’re looking for a reliable VPN for China, or you can read our ExpressVPN review or our VyprVPN review, two of our top choices.
That’s just China, though – in other high censorship countries like Saudi Arabia and Russia NordVPN remains a solid VPN choice to bypass censorship.
Platforms & Devices Protect all your devices with a wide range of custom VPN apps
Apps Windows Logo Windows Mac Logo Mac iOS Logo iOS Android Logo Android Linux Logo Linux Router Logo Router NordVPN has simple native VPN apps for all major operating systems:
Windows macOS iOS Android Linux (yes, even Linux) If your device is not compatible with the custom apps above, you can also install NordVPN on your router.
What’s more, you can use NordVPN on up to six devices at the same time using just one VPN subscription, which is one of the highest allowances we’ve seen.
Games Consoles & Streaming Devices AppleTV Logo AppleTV Amazon Fire TV Logo Amazon Fire TV Chromecast Logo Chromecast Nintendo Logo Nintendo PlayStation Logo PlayStation Roku Logo Roku Xbox Logo Xbox NordVPN has an Android TV app, meaning you can use the VPN app with streaming devices such as Android TV and the Amazon Fire TV Stick without any manual configuration.
In fact, NordVPN is one of the best VPNs for the Fire TV although it is not our top recommendation. If you own a Firestick and want to use a VPN app with it, take a look at our roundup of the best VPNs for Fire TV and Fire TV Stick.
If you want to run NordVPN on your other streaming devices or games consoles like Xbox and PlayStation, though, you’ll need to install it at router level. It’s not too difficult and it means that all devices connected to the router will be protected.
Browser Extensions Chrome Logo Chrome Firefox Logo Firefox NordVPN provides VPN extensions for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
These VPN add-ons encrypt your browser traffic, but protection ends there so we always suggest using NordVPN’s extensions in conjunction with the main VPN application or client.
The extensions also have an in-built WebRTC leak blocker, which is an extremely useful bonus.
NordVPN doesn’t yet have VPN extensions for Safari or Opera browsers.
Encryption & Security Secure VPN with advanced features but lacking protocol flexibility
Protocol IKEv2/IPSec
OpenVPN (TCP/UDP)
WireGuard
Encryption AES-256
Security DNS Leak Blocking
First-party DNS
Supports TCP Port 443
VPN Kill Switch
WebRTC Leak Blocking
Advanced features Double VPN
TOR via VPN Server
Please see our VPN Glossary if these terms confuse you and would like to learn more.
NordVPN has only one choice of VPN protocol by default, but it’s our personal favourite: OpenVPN. The iOS and macOS apps (available to download directly from the Apple App Store) run on IKEv2, though.
OpenVPN provides the perfect blend of speed and security. It encrypts all your internet traffic using the ‘unhackable’ AES-256 cypher.
Screenshot of NordVPN Settings Menu in App
You can also use IKEv2 with NordVPN’s Windows and Android apps if you like, but it requires an extra download and a lot of advanced setup (manual configuration).
The VPN kill switch feature protects your IP address in the event of a connection drop, and NordVPN’s privately owned and operated DNS servers ensure end-to-end protection.
NordVPN provides Double VPN (multi-hop) and Tor over VPN (Onion over VPN) for extra encryption.
As with all the VPN providers we review, we carried out extensive testing to find IP and DNS leaks when using NordVPN and we are happy to report that we found no leaks whatsoever.
Screenshot of browserleaks.com test results for NordVPN Leak test results on browserleaks.com while connected to a NordVPN US server. We test from the UK.
NordVPN has recently released a new technology for Linux users called NordLynx that’s based on the WireGuard VPN protocol.
WireGuard is a new VPN protocol that aims to be faster and more secure than the current standards, but it’s still in development so should be considered experimental at this point.
Logging Policy No-logs VPN in a privacy-friendly jurisdiction
NordVPN doesn’t log your traffic or store any user logs, making it a safe and trustworthy VPN.
Here’s a comprehensive list of all the information it does collect:
Server loads That is the full extent of the information NordVPN collects, making it a true no-logs VPN. Server loads are monitored to maintain the optimal performance of VPN servers for users, and nothing else.
Your privacy is upheld above all else, and NordVPN absolutely will not sell your personal data to any third parties.
Jurisdiction NordVPN was founded in 2012 is operated by Tefincom & Co S.A. which is headquartered under the legal jurisdiction of Panama, putting it beyond the reach of US and EU data retention laws.
Panama does not require VPN companies to store or report any of their data, nor is it part of any agreements that compel it to share information with other countries.
Being based in Panama gives NordVPN the power to deny any third-party data requests, so there is absolutely no way that any of your online activity can be traced back to you.
In 2018, NordVPN came under some heat as it was accused of not being headquartered in Panama. The reason for the controversy is that when you purchased NordVPN on Google Play Store, at the time the Seller of NordVPN was listed as CloudVPN INC. (a company registered in the US), and not Tefincom & Co S.A.
It turns out that CloudVPN INC. is a payment processor and NordVPN was simply using it to handle payments, similarly to how other VPN providers use payment processing companies to manage these type of transactions.
Ease of Use Quick and easy setup with simple custom apps
How to Install & Set Up NordVPN Screenshot of NordVPN Download Button Downloading the software is as simple as going to Nord's website and clicking the download button for the appropriate platform.
Screenshot of NordVPN Installation Progress You can check the progress of your installation here, which usually only takes a couple of minutes at most.
Screenshot of NordVPN App Login Screen Once the software is installed, all that's left to do is log into the app and you're ready to go.
Screenshot of NordVPN Desktop App Main Screen The main NordVPN app view with server locations to the left, which are also presented as pins on the map.
Screenshot of NordVPN Specialty Servers On the left-hand side of the app, you can see the full list of server locations and speciality servers for P2P, Double VPN, etc.
Screenshot of NordVPN City-Level Servers Hover over a country name and click on the three horizontal dots that appear in order to select a city-level server.
Screenshot of NordVPN Connected Screen You will know when NordVPN is working because the server location you are connected to and your new IP address will be displayed at the bottom of the app.
Screenshot of NordVPN General App Settings You can find the general settings by clicking 'Settings' at the top of the app. These consist of simple toggles for general settings, including the VPN kill switch.
Screenshot of NordVPN Advanced App Settings Scroll down to the bottom of the settings menu to find the advanced options. After confirming that you know what you're doing, you can toggle between TCP/UDP and use obfuscated servers.
The NordVPN website has comprehensive VPN setup guides for whatever platform you happen to be using, but it’s unlikely you’ll ever need them.
All of NordVPN’s custom VPN apps run smoothly and are almost entirely self-explanatory.
If you want to play around with advanced settings then you’re welcome to do that too – they’re clearly labelled and the app even warns you not to do so unless you know what you’re doing.
Browser Extensions Screenshot of NordVPN Chrome Extension
It couldn’t be much easier to set up NordVPN’s browser extensions – just go to the Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox store and download the add-on to your browser.
Once you’ve logged on you can choose a server and connect. We’d recommend enabling ‘Block WebRTC’ from the settings menu to prevent any potential IP leaks.
Customer Support Helpful live chat support & useful online resources
24/7 Live chat support Online Resources NordVPN provides excellent quality customer support both through its extensive knowledge base and via online live chat.
Email support isn’t as good and we’ve found responses to be slow at times. There is really no reason to email customer support, though, as NordVPN’s live chat service is 24/7.
Encounter any issues? NordVPN running slow, perhaps? No problem – support agents respond quickly and are extremely friendly and helpful, managing to fix most of our VPN issues within a couple of minutes.
NordVPN’s troubleshooting guides are very useful, too, covering a variety of potential VPN issues and providing a range of possible solutions.

What are your thoughts on Xapo now?

Some very big names have joined Xapo and what they've said about Bitcoin is rightly being hyped on the front page. In the past this subreddit has been pretty negative about the company, what do you think now?

PrivateVPN Review - A real shocker

PrivateVPN doesn’t shy away from talking itself up on its website. It makes a whole bunch of bold claims, such as it being the “fastest growing VPN worldwide”.
PrivateVPN also promises to “unlock anything, protect everything” – that’s just what we like to see from a VPN service, but can it possibly deliver on such strong claims?
We put PrivateVPN to the test hoping to answer that question, plus:
Does PrivateVPN work with Netflix? Where is PrivateVPN located? Does PrivateVPN work in China? What is Stealth VPN? And, of course, is PrivateVPN any good? Our unbiased and in-depth review will explain all, but if you’re in a rush you can find our key takeaways just below. Pros Consistently fast speeds No logging & no IP, DNS & WebRTC leaks Works with Netflix, BBC iPlayer & more Torrenting/P2P allowed on all VPN servers Choose from VPN servers in 59 countries User-friendly apps for PC, Mac, iOS, & Android Cons Small number of individual VPN servers No browser VPN extensions No native app for Linux Live chat not always available Works with
Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, BBC iPlayer, Sky, HBO, Torrenting, Kodi

PrivateVPN is one of the best VPNs on the market, there’s no doubt about it. It’s fast, safe and tantalizingly cheap – but it’s not without its flaws. Read on to find out just what to look out for.
Speed & Reliability Very fast speeds across the server network
PrivateVPN provides consistently fast speeds across its VPN server network. Reliably quick uploads and downloads are ideal for both secure torrenting and buffer-free streaming.
Connecting to a same-country server (UK to UK), PrivateVPN only slowed our internet connection down by about 7%.
PrivateVPN is one of the fastest VPNs available – if speed is what you want then it’s a serious contender.
Speed results from our physical location in London (100Mbps fibre optic connection) to a London test server.
Before using PrivateVPN:
DOWNLOAD Mbps 92.94
UPLOAD Mbps 97.54
PING ms 3
When connected to PrivateVPN:
DOWNLOAD Mbps 86.7
UPLOAD Mbps 88.94
PING ms 5
Download speed without PrivateVPN: 92.94Mbps
Download speed with PrivateVPN: 86.70Mbps
Our download speed loss when PrivateVPN is running: 7%
Ping times are low (great for gamers) and upload speeds are high (great for torrenters).
Even across international connections, such as the UK to the US, PrivateVPN is pretty speedy – you’ll be able to do pretty much anything online without breaking a sweat.
Take a look at the average download and upload speeds we recorded connecting out from the UK to PrivateVPN’s servers:
USA: 63Mbps (download) & 25Mbps (upload) Germany: 86Mbps (download) & 56Mbps (upload) Singapore: 32Mbps (download) & 15Mbps (upload) Australia: 18Mbps (download) & 13Mbps (upload) Server Locations Just 150 VPN servers cover 59 countries
Globe with a blue flag 59 Countries Image of a city landscape 75 Cities Image of a pink marker 7,000+ IP Addresses See all Server Locations PrivateVPN’s array of locations (59 countries) and VPN servers is nowhere near the highest we’ve seen, but it’s not as poor as it may first look.
Screenshot of PrivateVPN's beta server list
PrivateVPN offers more than 7,000 individual IP addresses so, despite maintaining just the 150 or so VPN servers, you shouldn’t have to worry about facing congestion or slowdown.
Those 150 VPN servers also do a pretty good job of providing worldwide coverage. There are servers in popular locations like the US, Canada, Australia, and loads of countries in Western Europe, but PrivateVPN also provides plenty of choice in South America and Asia-Pacific.
Those in South and Central America can connect to VPN servers in Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, and Panama.
While Asia has VPN servers in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Israel, India, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, Vietnam, and the United Arab Emirates.
Disappointingly, Africa is covered by South Africa alone.
PrivateVPN provides city-level choice in eight countries, which is great for experiencing the best speeds:
Australia (2) Canada (2) India (2) Italy (2) Sweden (3) the UK (2) Ukraine (2) the US (9) PrivateVPN uses a mix of physical servers and virtual servers. It owns some of its servers and leases others. While this isn’t ideal, PrivateVPN ensures that those leased servers are not keeping user logs by setting them up themselves and monitoring the servers remotely.
Streaming & Torrenting Works reliably with Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Hulu, and more
PrivateVPN is one of the absolute best VPNs for streaming.
PrivateVPN makes streaming easy by organizing its locations list into servers optimized for accessing certain streaming services like Netflix and BBC iPlayer.
PrivateVPN also has dedicated VPN servers for 18 other streaming channels including:
Amazon Prime ESPN HBO Hulu Sky Torrenting PrivateVPN is a great VPN for torrenting, with P2P allowed on all servers, but there are special servers in 17 countries optimized for that purpose too. You can find these servers under ‘Dedicated IP/Torrent’ within the ‘By Service’ servers list.
PrivateVPN is one of the safest choices for torrenting due to its no-logs policy, host of security features, and fast uploads and downloads.
PrivateVPN is ideal for Kodi, too.
Bypassing Censorship Works reliably in China thanks to Stealth VPN protocol
PrivateVPN is a good VPN for China.
Its advanced privacy tools and Stealth VPN protocol, which hides the fact you’re using a VPN, meaning that PrivateVPN is one of our most reliable VPN choices for China – or for bypassing censorship in any other country, for that matter.
Thanks to the Stealth VPN feature, you can use PrivateVPN in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey too. With plenty of servers in Asia, speeds should remain fast.
PrivateVPN also provides Tor over VPN if you’re looking for an extra layer of security.
Platforms & Devices Simple custom VPN apps for the main platforms
Apps Windows Logo Windows Mac Logo Mac iOS Logo iOS Android Logo Android Linux Logo Linux Router Logo Router PrivateVPN has custom VPN apps for the most popular platforms, including:
Microsoft Windows Apple MacOS iOS Android For any other platforms, like Linux, there are plenty of manual setup guides online to help you through it.
You can connect up to six devices at the same time, which makes PrivateVPN a good choice for those who want to protect not only their devices but their family’s too.
Games Consoles & Streaming Devices AppleTV Logo AppleTV Amazon Fire TV Logo Amazon Fire TV Chromecast Logo Chromecast Nintendo Logo Nintendo PlayStation Logo PlayStation Roku Logo Roku Xbox Logo Xbox On top of custom apps for the four most popular platforms, PrivateVPN provides solutions for smart TVs too.
PrivateVPN is one of very few providers to offer a dedicated VPN app for the Amazon Fire TV Stick, meaning all you have to do is download the app from the store and you’re ready to go.
In order to protect games consoles or any other streaming device, you’ll need to connect them to a configured router or another device running the PrivateVPN app, such as a laptop or smartphone.
Browser Extensions Unlike the majority of our other top-ranking VPNs, PrivateVPN has no browser extensions. This means that there are no add-ons for Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, or Safari.
ExpressVPN, for example, provides full-featured VPN extensions for the most popular web browsers. VPN browsers tend to come with added WebRTC leak protection, but thankfully we didn’t experience any leaks during our PrivateVPN tests.
Encryption & Security Very secure VPN with plenty of configurable options
Protocol IKEv2/IPSec
L2TP/IPSec
OpenVPN (TCP/UDP)
PPTP
Encryption AES-256
Security DNS Leak Blocking
First-party DNS
IPV6 Leak Blocking
Supports TCP Port 443
VPN Kill Switch
Advanced features SOCKS
TOR via VPN Server
Please see our VPN Glossary if these terms confuse you and would like to learn more.
It’s not just a name – PrivateVPN really is a truly secure and safe VPN, with lots of advanced features in place to make sure your data and browsing habits are kept as private as possible.
Screenshot of PrivateVPN Settings Menu in App
PrivateVPN provides near-uncrackable AES-256 encryption, the OpenVPN protocol – our personal favorite, and DNS servers operated by PrivateVPN so that your traffic doesn’t take any unexpected diversions.
You can choose to connect using other VPN protocols (PPTP and L2TP) but we don’t recommend them as they don’t provide the same level of security. In fact, PPTP is unsafe to use.
PrivateVPN has a VPN kill switch for Windows to keep you safe if your connection drops, but it’s missing for MacOS and mobile devices, which is disappointing.
Our thorough VPN testing detected no DNS or IPv6 leaks, and you can also use Tor over VPN or TCP Port 443 for even greater security.
Screenshot of leak test results for PrivateVPN PrivateVPN browserleaks.com test results while connected to a US server. We test from the UK.
Logging Policy Strict zero-logging policy mitigates EU jurisdiction
A VPN can’t truly be private unless it has a top-notch, robust logging policy. PrivateVPN claims that it “doesn’t collect or log any traffic or use of its service.”
That’s great – unfortunately, that one quote is also the full extent of it. We’d like the privacy policy to explicitly say that it doesn’t log DNS requests, connection timestamps, or IP addresses, but thankfully a support agent confirmed that PrivateVPN doesn’t collect this data.
Ultimately, we trust PrivateVPN to keep you safe, and you should too, but ideally we look for a little more information and clarification in a privacy policy, just for peace of mind.
Jurisdiction PrivateVPN was founded in 2009 and is owned by Privat Kommunikation AB, which operates under the jurisdiction of Sweden, making it subject to EU data retention laws and intelligence-sharing agreements.
However, PrivateVPN’s zero-logs policy means that even if it was asked to comply with any type of investigation, it doesn’t have any information about its VPN subscribers to give to the authorities, so there’s nothing for users to worry about.
Ease of Use Simple setup and user-friendly custom apps
How to Install & Set Up PrivateVPN Screenshot of PrivateVPN Download Button Go to the downloads section of the PrivateVPN website to begin the installation process.
Screenshot of PrivateVPN Terms and Conditions You have to accept PrivateVPN's terms and conditions before you can install the software.
Screenshot of PrivateVPN Installation Wizard Once you've accepted the terms, the VPN installation wizard will let you know once the installation is complete.
Screenshot of PrivateVPN Completed Installation When the software has been installed, you'll be prompted to restart your machine before you can use the VPN.
Screenshot of PrivateVPN Desktop App Main Screen The desktop VPN client is uncluttered and user-friendly, displaying your new IP address and chosen server location.
Screenshot of PrivateVPN's server list PrivateVPN's server list is arranged in alphabetical order by country name and displays the city name too.
Screenshot of PrivateVPN's streaming servers PrivateVPN makes streaming your favorite shows easy with a list of dedicated VPN servers.
Screenshot of PrivateVPN Protocol Selection You can choose which VPN protocol you want to connect with, but OpenVPN is the default setting.
Screenshot of PrivateVPN Connection Guard The VPN connection guard tab allows you to toggle on/off features such as the kill switch and DNS leak blocking.
Downloading and installing PrivateVPN is incredibly easy and takes only a matter of minutes. There are step-by-step installation guides for loads of popular devices on the website if you need help.
PrivateVPN’s minimalist VPN apps do a great job of keeping things simple while simultaneously showcasing its more advanced features.
The desktop and mobile PrivateVPN apps are very similar in appearance, and everything is clearly labeled and accessible – although mobile users should beware that the Android and iOS versions are missing the kill switch.
PrivateVPN’s apps don’t provide integrated support, either, so newbies or those looking for assistance will need to head online for help.
Customer Support Useful online resources but live chat is inconsistent
Live chat Support Online Resources PrivateVPN does have a live chat help feature on its website, but it’s not available 24/7, which is less than ideal.
The chat box is either red or green depending on whether or not it’s available – there doesn’t seem to be any way to predict exactly when that will or won’t be. When it’s unavailable PrivateVPN brings up an online form instead.
Email replies to the online form are fairly quick, and the support agents are very knowledgable and friendly.
Even if the live chat isn’t active when you need it, PrivateVPN’s online resources and FAQs should be able to see you through most issues.

06 – Fiat Exchanges – South Korea

안녕하세요 여러분! 혹시 우리 한국인 친구 이 보고서를 한국어로 읽고 싶어한다면 알려주세요. 관심이 많이 있다면 간단한 한국어 보고서도 만들 수 있습니다. This year, ETH has taken off like a rocket in the Land of the Morning Calm. With a population of just 50 million, South Koreans account for almost 30% of daily ETH trade volume. Even more surprising is that currently the daily volume of ETH is about 5 times higher than that of Bitcoin on Korean exchanges. Since demand is high, ETH is trading at a premium on Korean exchanges. Some users have been talking about capitalizing off this imbalance by trading on arbitrage between exchanges. For those who have no connection to Korea and hope to do so, I have bad news – all Korean exchanges require a National ID number and access to a Korean bank account. This makes Korean exchanges virtually closed to Korean nationals and those with long-term visas. Sorry everyone.

07 – Fiat Exchanges – China

With a great deal of anticipation, major Chinese exchanges started trading ETH this summer. Since these exchanges deal huge volumes of Bitcoin already, naturally it was expected that they invest heavily into ETH as well. So far this hasn’t quite lived up to the hype with many exchanges still favoring Bitcoin, Litecoin, Altcoins, and even Ethereum Classic (Gulp). Three of these exchanges underwent inspections by the Peoples Bank of China earlier this year and will be working closely with the government to ease fears of money laundering and market manipulation. There are a lot of Chinese sites, and since my Chinese is non-existent this list is basically just for name recognition. In many ways these sites are very similar in regards to security, verification, and fees compared to their western counterparts; just marketed at a different audience and currency. If users are seriously interested in these exchanges and making reviews, please contribute or ask!

My Coinbase account got hacked

I am new to bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies and I created a wallet in Coinbase 2 days back to check what the hype is about and also enabled 2 factor authentication. When I logged in today, I got notification saying I used wrong authentication code even though I used the right code and I was able to login in the second attempt. When I checked to my account I saw new transfer of 540 from my debit card to my wallet and all the amount I had in my Coinbase wallet including the new transfer got transferred to random address and now I have 0 balance left. In my account activity I see someone from Ukraine logged in to my account at the same time I was attempting to login. My question is, how often does this happen?, is there anything I can do about it?

Bitwage Releases Bitcoin Payroll for the Individual. Live your life in Bitcoin, with or without your Employer.

Bitwage Releases Bitcoin Payroll for the Individual, BP(i) and Enters Beta.
Ways to spend Bitcoin have been growing rapidly since 2013 (Overstock, Gyft, TigerDirect, Expedia and soon PayPal, etc). However, ways of getting Bitcoins have not been growing as quickly, creating a downward pressure on the price of Bitcoin at the online exchanges and little demand for said merchants. There is quite a bit of friction involved in buying Bitcoin from an exchange, with lots of personal information and wait time required. How can we expect mainstream adoption with such high barriers to entry?
*Enter Bitwage Payroll. *
Earning Bitcoin during your day job minimizes friction of on-boarding, while at the same time reducing the number of steps and commission spreads. With Bitwage, there is now an easy way to obtain Bitcoins with Zero-Click Bitcoin Payrolls. We at Bitwage recognize that implementing Bitcoin Payroll may not be at the top of every employer’s list, leaving many who wish to receive a portion of their pay in Bitcoin wanting. This is why we are happy to announce that:
Bitwage Releases Bitcoin Payroll for the Individual, BP(i) as of November 3rd
Bitwage allows anyone, regardless of how big or small, Bitcoin-friendly or Bitcoin-hostile their employer is, to be able to receive a Bitcoin wage. If your employer offers direct deposits, there is no need to evangelize the employer about Bitcoin. Just switch to a bank account that happens to be Bitcoin-friendly. No need to go all-in to Bitcoin. Convert as much or as little of your paycheck to Bitcoin as you want, say 10%.
This is a FREE Private Beta. Sign up at https://www.bitwage.co to get started!
In addition, the Bitwage solution will allow for employees and employers alike to create their capital gains reports and file them through our partnership with Gocheto Financials with just a few clicks.
So what are some of the implications of BP(i):
Live Your Life in Bitcoin, Regardless of Your Employer
Everyday, more and more people are looking for ways to minimize their reliance on the current financial system in exchange for a taste of the future. With the current methods, users have to rely on the inefficient banking systems to act as a conduit between the traditional sector and the digital sector. Now, with BP(i), you can live within this modern digital ecosystem without interfacing with a banking intermediary. From as small as 1% to as large as 100% of your paycheck, you can now live the way you want to live. Whether you are a new user looking at Bitcoin as an investment or you are looking for a way to move into the next generation of financial systems, now you can live your life in Bitcoin.
Unbanked and Underbanked Now Have a New Way to Get Paid
Through BP(i), the unbanked and underbanked in the United States now have a way to access modern financial tools, regardless of their employers.
There are over 10 million unbanked residents in the US alone who either cannot keep a minimum balance to establish a bank account or do not trust the banks in general. Without bank accounts, this segment of the population are forced to deal with the fees and friction associated with the check cashing and prepaid cards industry. In 2012, Green Dot, a major prepaid card player, reported that there were more than 4.2 million active cards and $16.1 billion in gross dollar volume of funds loaded onto their cards that year. Netspend reported 2.1 million active cards with $11 billion in gross dollar volume. The costs associated with prepaid card include initiation fees, monthly fees, POS fees, cash withdrawal fees, balance inquiry fees, transaction statement fees, customer service fees, bill payment fees, fees to add or load funds, dormancy fees, fees to get remaining funds when closing the account and overdraft fees. On average, the fees on prepaid cards cost the unbanked and underbanked up to $30 a month depending on the card. In addition, there were over $31 billion in overdraft fees last year in the US alone. These costs are just for the ability to hold and send money.
With BP(i), unbanked and underbanked now have a new opportunity to have access to these basic financial tools without all of the exorbitant costs related to the traditional financial system. Although Bitcoin payroll may initially act as an investment vehicle due to its volatile nature, as the ecosystem evolves and provides new tools to hedge against the volatility of Bitcoin, BP(i) provides new avenues to provide financial relief to those that need it most.
Receiving International Contractor Payments Just Got Way Easier
Over 2.6 million full-time jobs are outsourced from the United States alone. Millions of freelancers contract for companies in US and Europe from other countries, many of them without a reliable banking network or wire-transfer capabilities. Even after international contractors are paid, after all the delays, transfer fees and conversion fees (which total to about 8% on average), their local currency can be quite volatile and not a good store of value, such as the Ukraine Hryvnia, which lost over half its value against USD during 2014).
What do citizens of countries with high (and under-reported) inflation rates such as Ukraine, Argentina and Venezula do to store the value of their wages? They exchange their local currency for dollars as soon and as often as possible. They often have to deal with currency controls and/or a real shortage of paper dollars in their region, and thus resort to doing business with back-street money changers, who charge a premium for their services, say 8 Argentinian Pesos for a Dollar, instead of the official rate of 5 Pesos.
With the creation of BP(i), receiving international contractor payments is as easy as receiving Bitcoins. Use Bitwage to accept the payments in the US, thereby reducing costs for both you and your employer, and have Bitcoins sent straight to your wallet. By the end of the year, we will be offering fully transparent international payments between the US and the Philippines. This service will be expanded to other countries in early 2015.
As we enter Beta, we will initially be keeping BP(i) and Automatic Zero-Click Bitcoin Payrolls free. Charges may apply for features such as non-automatic payrolls with Wire, ACH Debit, and Bitcoin, as well as 1099 Filings and Capital Gains Filings.

Proposal for a new method of anonymous/untraceable communications using a global network of asterisk boxes

Hey guys, I figured this would be an excellent place to post some questions and hopefully be spared the snark that some of the other subreddits love to throw around. 
I've written up a proposal that essentially creates a Tor-like network using Asterisk boxes located around the world as nodes for routing communications anonymously. I'm sure many of you have used Tor or are at least familiar with how it works.
Do you think something like this could be accomplished? I've only played with Asterisk when I was learning VXML 7-8 years ago and haven't really touched it since then. 
Would any of you be interested in reading my proposal and giving me your advice/laughing at me and telling me I'm a stupid noob/or even telling me if what I'm talking about is even possible using Asterisk. I would really appreciate any input from professionals who use Asterisk in their daily lives. I want to use asterisk specifically because it's free, runs on linux, and requires little to no extra hardware. It would be much easier to set up a global network of asterisk routing nodes than it would be to physically rent space somewhere and fly to that country and set up a legitimate pbx.
I'll give a very rough outline of what I'm talking about below and if it piques your interest, feel free to ask questions or ask me to elaborate on certain points. Thanks in advance for any and all responses, even the ones that tell me I'm a crazy wing nut. :) The basic set up would involve a global network of Asterisk boxes hosted all over the world in several different countries, that would route phone calls to other Asterisk boxes in other locations before eventually completing the call. This is similar to the way Tor routes traffic through several intermediary nodes before reaching an exit node and delivering the requested content. Alice calls up the first Asterisk box and she is prompted for a number she wishes to call. That box automatically transfers that call, forwarding it around the world from asterisk node, to asterisk node, until finally passing the call on to the intended recipient. In this setup only the first node will know both the number of the person placing the call and the number of the person being called. From there, the call would be transferred around the network of nodes, until finally the last node connects the caller with the callee without revealing the number of the person placing the call. All this will happen seamlessly and without any user interaction beyond telling the system the number to call. On the other end, the callee would receive a call from an unfamiliar number or even just 000-000-0000, the number of the asterisk node. At no time will the callers number be forwarded between nodes to the person being called. No box would log any information about the call that wasn’t absolutely necessary and all logs would be destroyed once the call was connected at the other end so that even if an individual box was compromised, or confiscated by a government agency, there would be no call or text records stored on the machine. Machines would be transient and redundant so the network could not easily be taken down without taking down the entire network at the same time. 
The local phone service, and by extension, the 3 letter federal agencies would only have a record of the initial call placed to the Asterisk box, but would be unable to tell who ultimately you were actually calling. On the other end, the only record the phone company would have is that the callee received a call from an asterisk PBX. No identifying information about who placed the call would exist.
Perhaps the VoIP provider could see the full information regarding who called who and when. This problem could be solved by using multiple different VoIP providers in several different countries and making sure that during the mixing process the call was passed between at least two different VoIP providers. I've done some research and found some rather shady VoIP providers out there already. The idea isn’t to make it 100% IMPOSSIBLE to obtain these phone records, as much as it’s to make it excessively difficult to obtain as to make it simply not worth it. The US Government has the ability to unmask TOR users but in most cases it is so prohibitively expensive as to make it not worth their time/effort/money. We will aim for the exact same goal. This system has the benefit over using voice chat over TOR in that you do not rely on evil exit nodes run by random strangers with unknown motives. This system would also have much lower latency issues than you have making voice or video calls over the TOR network. The goal of this system is not to provide an encrypted communications channel, the main goal here is to anonymize and mask telephone traffic as best as is possible with current technology. 
I've got other ideas in mind for how to encrypt said calls but that is beyond the scope of this post.
My goal is to create a communications channel that journalists, activists, leakers, people coordinating uprisings (the middle east, Ukraine, etc.), and other people living under oppressive regimes who cannot communicate freely without the threat of being executed or jailed for their beliefs. This would even take care of the issue of "metadata" collection by governments as all the metadata would show is that Alice called a PBX and that Bob got a call from a PBX. I also do not want to use Tor or any other supposedly "encrypted calling/video chat" application for a few reasons. The first reason being that any software you install on your device is a new attack vector should a shady government office or hacker want to see what you're up to. They could simply find an 0-day vulnerability in the software you're using to make the call and you're done. Also, in a system where you have to install a specific program to use the service, you have to be on a smart phone or a computer. In the system outlined above you could make calls from a landline, a pay phone, a computer, or a cell phone. All of the anonymization is handled on our end. Before you ask- yes I realize this service wouldn't be free and my vision, eventually would be to charge users like journalists, hackers, and people who just worry about their privacy, to use the service and pay in untraceable/hard to trace currency like bitcoin, prepaid debit cards, etc. As well as grants from various privacy aligned/oriented groups. The idea being that once the service is paid fois paying for itself, I could offer the service to oppressed peoples, rebel groups, etc free of charge. 
Perhaps someone here could tell me what sort of up-front costs I'm looking at just to get the network up and running. I've got SysAdmin experience but I've never tried to do anything of this scale or importance.
The absolute last thing I want to create is a network for drug dealers to conduct business freely but that is just a fact of doing business when your business is protecting people from oppressive/tyrannical governments. Criminals will find it just as useful as dissidents, there's no way around that. So come on guys, tear it apart, tell me why this is a ridiculous idea and why I should give up now and go get a job at McDonalds. Anyone who would rather chat over email can feel free to email [email protected] if you prefer to communicate using PGP I can handle that as well. 
Thanks in advance guys, I look forward to your opinions/suggestions/insults.
I've tried to think of "everything" but I wrote this in about 15 minutes when my eyes had been open for about 2 minutes, as if this idea came to me in a dream 0.o

A New Method For Anonymous/Untraceable Telephone Communication/Text Messaging Using A Global Network Of Asterisk Boxes. Avoid Metadata Collection And Prevent The Government From Graphing Your Social Network Based On Who You Call

I know that there is a large cross over between Anarchist culture and Hacker culture so I figured I would post this here and get some opinions on a project I'm currently trying to get off the ground. My basic questions are- Would you use it? What would it take for you to trust that it's not just some government plot to spy on you? Would you pay for such a service? If so, what is the service worth to you? Do you already use anonymizing/identity protecting services? If so, which ones? Tor? PGP? What would you look fowhat would you see as the ultimate anonymizing service to protect your identity from the government?
If you can, please take a minute to read my proposal and let me know what you think. If you're a hackedevelopephreak/etc I'm especially interested in hearing from you. Thanks.
My proposal is this:
The basic set up would involve a global network of Asterisk boxes hosted all over the world in several different countries, that would route phone calls to other Asterisk boxes in other locations before eventually completing the call. This is similar to the way Tor routes traffic through several intermediary nodes before reaching an exit node and delivering the requested content.

The goal of this system is not to provide an encrypted communications channel, the main goal here is to anonymize and mask telephone traffic as best as is possible with current technology. 
I've got other ideas in mind for how to encrypt said calls involving hardware that would allow you to do real time voice encryption using any device, including a land line, and wouldn't require you to install any extra software on your computephone that could act ask vectors for attacking your device or your privacy.
My goal is to create a communications channel that journalists, activists, leakers, people coordinating uprisings (the middle east, Ukraine, etc.), and other people living under oppressive regimes who cannot communicate freely without the threat of being executed or jailed for their beliefs.

In the system outlined above you could make calls from a landline, a pay phone, a computer, or a cell phone. All of the anonymization is handled on our end. Other than those two reasons- TOR IS BROKEN. We all know Tor is monitored heavily by the feds and it's not even that hard for them to do. Tor by its very design is flawed in that it allows anyone to run an exit node and anyone running an exit node can view all traffic, unencrypted, going through the Tor network. This to me is a glaring security weakness. Plus using Tor for voice or video chat is just so fucking slow. The latency involved would make it practically impossible to carry on a conversation. 
Before you ask- yes I realize this service wouldn't be free and my vision, eventually would be to charge users like journalists, hackers, and people who just worry about their privacy, to use the service and pay in untraceable/hard to trace currency like bitcoin, prepaid debit cards, etc. As well as grants from various privacy aligned/oriented groups. The idea being that once the service is paid fois paying for itself, I could offer the service to activists, oppressed peoples, rebel groups, etc free of charge. People whose lives and freedom depend on being able to communicate away from prying eyes. With my system you would be able to communicate with anyone in the world, and know 100% that no record of that call exists, including "metadata."
So come on guys, tear it apart, tell me why this is a ridiculous idea and why I should give up now and go get a job at McDonalds. Anyone who would rather chat over email can feel free to email [email protected] if you prefer to communicate using PGP I can handle that as well.
