CNBC | Ryan Browne | Oct 4, 2022 Mastercard launches fraud detection software:  'Crypto Secure' Why:  Mastercard will on Tuesday debut a new piece of software that helps banks identify and cut off transactions from fraud-prone crypto exchanges, the company told CNBC exclusively.  It already uses similar technology to prevent fraud in fiat currency transactions. With Crypto Secure, it's expanding such functionality to bitcoin and other virtual currencies. Ajay Bhalla, Mastercard's president of cyber and intelligence business, said the move was about ensuring its partners can "stay compliant with the complex regulatory landscape." Despite the slump in digital token prices, crime in the industry has shown no signs of abating. See:  Digital Asset Classification vs Wire Fraud: What’s the Most Powerful Law in Crypto Right Now Called Crypto Secure, the system uses "sophisticated" artificial intelligence algorithms to determine the risk of crime associated with crypto exchanges on the Mastercard payment network. The system relies on data from the blockchain, a public record of crypto transactions, as well as other sources. The service is powered by CipherTrace, a blockchain security startup Mastercard acquired last year. Based in Menlo Park, California, CipherTrace helps businesses and government agencies investigate illicit transactions involving cryptocurrencies ...

Rebecca Kacaba DealMaker - Canadian Fintech & Funding Directory | Jamie Redman | Oct 2, 2022 With the new Ethereumpow (ETHW) network launch, ethereum holders are eligible to receive a single ETHW for every ether they own. The following is a simple guide that shows ethereum holders how to access their ETHW tokens using a wallet like Metamask. A couple of weeks ago, Ethereum transitioned from a proof-of-work (PoW) blockchain to a proof-of-stake (PoS) network, and ethereum miners chose to mine a few different coins like ethereum classic and ravencoin.

At the time of writing, there’s 52.27 terahash per second (TH/s) of hashrate dedicated to the ETHW network. See:  Merge Complete. Goodbye Miners, Hello Stakers The ETHW token has been trading for prices between $10.96 to $12.16 per unit during the last 24 hours.

However, during the past 24 hours on October 1, 2022, ETHW has lost roughly 7% against the U.S. dollar. Because ETH owners are eligible for ETHW at a ...
