On November 2nd, MetaMask and other dapp browsers will stop exposing user accounts to webpages by default. Instead, dapps must request access to user accounts using a new provider method:
provider.enable(). This developer-focused article contains all notable changes for the upcoming November 2nd MetaMask release.
A startup called dYdX has raised $10 million in funding from investors to develop financial software that allows people to borrow money from one another without using a broker.
The experimental nature and size of the 0x project has led some to look at other connections to explain the token’s listing. Some have highlighted the relationship between 0x project advisors and Coinbase. Both Fred Ehrsam, co-founder of Coinbase, and Linda Xie, a product manager at Coinbase for more than 3 years, are among the project’s five listed advisors. Xie is married to 0x co-founder Warren.

“I think any company scaling today has to have a crypto strategy. This is the start of ours,” Omni founder and CEO Tom McLeod tells me. His on-demand property storage and rental marketplace raised $25 million in XRP coins back in January in what some saw as an opportunist move to capitalize on the cryptocurrency boom. That industry has since gone bust, and XRP is in the cross-hairs of regulators who may classify it as a security with extra restrictions.
Many doubted The Civil Media Company‘s ambitious plan to sell $8 million worth of its cryptocurrency, called CVL.
The skeptics, as it turns out, were right. Civil’s initial coin offering, meant to fund the company’s effort to create a new economy for journalism using the blockchain, failed to attract sufficient interest. The company announced today that it would provide refunds to all CVL token buyers by October 29.
Bitcoin was supposed to be the enemy of governments. It was supposed to destroy the state’s monopoly on monetary policy, it was supposed to be a battering ram against the banks and financial surveillance. Indeed, Bitcoin was supposed to erect nothing less than an uncensorable shadow financial system.
So why have governments ushered Bitcoin through the front door?
Professor @Nouriel, how do you explain $194 million being processed on the Bitcoin network for a fee less than $0.1?
With banks, it costs at least $7,500 to process $1 million, that is based on Transferwise fee, which is substantially lower than wire transfers.

“We all scattered to the winds,” Hoskinson told me. He eventually started a crypto company called IOHK, and a blockchain project called Cardano. “Now I run my own company, with a hundred and sixty people,” he told me. “I’m basically a billionaire. At this point, I couldn’t care less about those six months of my life with Ethereum.”
Yang says he helped Bitmain design its market-leading technology but left the company in June 2016 after co-founders Jihan Wu and Micree Zhan turned down his request for a stake in the business. Yang started his own crypto chip company, MicroBT, a month later. He now claims his firm’s mining gear is just as good, if not better, than Bitmain’s.

What types of extremist groups are we talking about here? Just wondering. Crypto makes cross border money transfer much easier, and it's decentralized and sort-of anonymous nature makes it impossible to prohibit certain groups from using it.
Go get them, SEC
