Press Release: Blockchain-based startup Digitize Coin helps consumers convert their loose change into digital currencies and spend on any transaction.The fintech company is getting ready for its token presale which starts on April 6, 2018.

March 9th, Australia – Australian-based fintech startup Digitize Coin offers its users a way to collect their loose change from purchases, convert them to digital currency at the point of transaction and spend as they please. The loose change is tokenized into Digitize currency, allowing it to be used for payments, loyalty programs and even exchanged for Ethereum. Digitize is currently preparing for its token presale, which begins on April 6th, 2018 to raise funds to go towards the development of the platform.

Have you ever wished you could do away with loose change entirely? Well, soon that will be a reality, with Digitize Coins new blockchain-based system. Their new service will give users the freedom to swap their physical change for digital currency at the point of transaction, and put it straight into a digital wallet. The change can be collected in the wallet, converted into various different currencies and then spent on future payments.

Digitize Coin aims to bridge the gap between blockchain technology and the everyday consumer. Most consumers today don’t really understand the potential applications for blockchain technology and Digitize aims to use that technology in a way that is easily accessible for every-day use while solving a real-world problem.

To make use of the Digitize platform applicants must simply download the Digitize app, register and complete a KYC (Know Your Customer) application. After the user has been approved they are then eligible to deposit cash in either the form of loose change or make a direct purchase through their digital wallet. Transactions would occur at retail locations registered with Digitize through a cost-efficient and secure mobile app.

Umer Aslam, Founder, and CEO of Digitize Coin describes the solution that the service will provide the public, stating:

“The majority of the public still views cryptocurrencies as a nightmare to purchase – especially given the technicalities involved. Digitize will make this process as simple and seamless as using cash through registered retailers. Further, with the recent bans of credit card and debit payments worldwide, there is an even greater need for a cash-based purchase platform.”

Consumers will benefit from low transaction fees and retailers will create an additional revenue stream. Digitize token holders can also safely convert their tokens for other cryptocurrencies like Ethereum, withdraw for FIAT or invest in a crypto related index fund.

In addition to their main application Digitize Coin will facilitate up to $5,000 OTC transactions.This means that Digitize users will be able to make single purchases of up to $5,000, a unique service that is not being offered by any other multi-currency exchange service.

A large group of some of the biggest world banks recently halted cryptocurrency related credit card transactions, which leaves open a space for a seamless platform to exchange physical currencies for cryptocurrencies. In a world that is becoming more restrictive, Digitize Coin will offer a way for the everyday consumer to get around the problem of loose change and at the same time use cryptocurrency for everyday transactions.

The Digitize platform is still in it’s development phase but the core team expect to have a release date for the Alpha version in the very near future, and are currently working very hard to assure that the finished product is as refined and efficient as their vision portrays.

The Jigsaw Ransomware Has Been Revived to Steal Bitcoin from Unsuspecting Users

The Jigsaw malware is back and it is ready to steal Bitcoin from consumers once again. Jigsaw is Back to Scare Bitcoin Users ZDNet recently reported that the “Jigsaw” ransomware has recently been revised by hackers to steal Bitcoin from unsuspecting users through a “simple-but-effective trick.” According to the technology news source, Jigsaw first appeared in the cryptocurrency scene in April 2016 as a form of ransomware, holding the files and information of users hostage until a ransom of Bitcoin was paid. The reason why it is named Jigsaw is due to the fact that the piece of code displayed the likeness of the Saw horror film villain. However, with this most recent revision, the ransomware has been re-purposed to steal Bitcoin in a fairly innovative and non-intrusive manner, modifying the addresses inputted by a user. Once the piece of malware alters an address, the Bitcoin payment will then be redirected to the hacker’s wallet, resulting in lost crypto for the victim. Jigsaw, or “BitcoinStealer,” as it is known by references in the code of the program, accomplishes this by altering Bitcoin addresses in someone’s clipboard, or the area where copied pieces of text lie. However, the ingenuity of the program does not stop there, as BitcoinStealer is able to the intended address of the payment to one that looks very similar, using a program such as VanityGen to trick the user into thinking the hacker’s address and the original address are one and the same. Image Courtesy of Fortinet This ingenuity has proven to be rather successful, with researchers from Fortinet, who first broke the news about Jigsaw, saying that cyber attacks utilizing this method have garnered over 8.4 Bitcoin, or approximately $61,000 at current market prices. Fortinet also discovered that there were many similar projects for “modifying cryptocurrency addresses” being advertised on dark web forum sites, presumably by hackers enlisting the same method of attack. Crypto-Related Cybercrime is Still Prevalent Despite Price Decline However, this method of cybercrime, which the cyber researchers called the “clipboard-substitution malware family,” was not mentioned in a recent threat report from the cybersecurity firm Malwarebytes. According to the report released on July 17th, ransomware and cryptojacking were by far the primary sources of crypto-related cybercrime, with “cryptominers continuing to dominate” the threat landscape. Despite starting to slow down due to declining cryptocurrency prices and mining profits, the Cybercrime Tactics & Techniques Report for Q2 2018 still found that cryptominers are as prevalent as ever, noting: “Cryptomining detections are slowly declining; however, as one of the top two detections for both businesses and consumers, they still dominate the threat landscape” Nonetheless, moving into Q3 of 2018, Malwarebytes expects for cryptojacking cases to slowly fade, as cybercriminals follow the industries where they can make the biggest profits. The security firm wrote: “Ultimately, many criminals aren’t getting the return on investment (ROI) from cryptomining they were expecting. The cryptojacking craze will likely stabilize as it follows market trends in cryptocurrency… Until changes in the cryptocurrency market cause a spike or swift downturn, expect to see cryptomining hum along at its current slower pace into Q3.” It is likely that the propagation of clipboard-substitutions will become a growing threat for cryptocurrency users moving into the future, as it is a much more reliable, non-intrusive and profitable way for hackers to get their hand on consumer crypto. So watch out, double, triple or even quadruple check the address when you send your next Bitcoin transaction. Featured image from Shutterstock.
