Improvements to Ledger Cold Storage

 

Ledger makes the most commonly used hardware wallets for cold storage. This is the most secure method to store cryptocurrencies, but can be cumbersome for users when making transactions. "HODL" App - When receiving crypto to the device, users need to type in its wallet address. These are a unique mixture of as many as 36 letters and numbers to type. Doing so incorrectly could lose funds. This new app makes the device appear to a computer as a "virtual keyboard" that types the correct address in by itself. "Recovery Check" App - A 24-word "recovery phrase" is needed to restore balances to any other wallet. This app allows users to confirm they have correctly recorded their recovery phrase. Prior to this a time consuming full reset of the device was required.

 

NFL Players Association Buys Stake In Blockchain Startup

 

The NFLPA has a venture capital arm called OneTeam Collective, which has been researching blockchain based organizations as investment options. Recently they decided on a minority stake in FanChain. They see the new platform as an investment and income opportunity for their association members. They will encourage members to provide commentary, livestreams and other content, which earns tokens from the system by creating content for the platform as a whole, or have fans pay them with tokens directly. Players could potentially launch subscription-only streams as well. "I'm a big believer in blockchain and I think it will revolutionize our industry, sports, like it may have revolutionized industries like food.” - Casey Schwab, VP NFLPA Business and Legal Affairs
