6th WEEK OF 2017
Transition to merged mining, new exchange floor and the first official cryptocurrency bank.
Greetings to all blockchain enthusiasts!
This week starts out with good news. Emercoin is switching over to merged mining. This means that now, all the users of this platform will be able to make money in two cryptocurrencies at once — Emercoin and Bitcoin. This idea was being incubated for a long time, and now, finally, the time has come to turn it into reality. With the transition to Merged Mining, the complexity of blockchain will increase 500 times, which means even greater security for Emercoin. Besides this, the level of trust in the network will increase, as will the number of users. More details can be found here: http://www.blockchainengine.org/merged-mining-btc-emercoin/
The number of exchange floors where you can buy EMC is constantly increasing. Now you can also buy or exchange EMC coins at the USD-X exchange floor. By the way, right now it is trading at a very attractive exchange rate, so do not miss your chance! https://www.usd-x.com/market/EMC/USD
Very soon, our colleague Stanislav Polozov will be delivering a lecture on the Emercoin blockchain for attendees of Digital October Education Center. For more details about this project, please visit the websites of our partners: http://edu.digitaloctober.ru/courses/blockchain-weekend/

Mikhail Shlyapnikov’s projects are well-known, and not only throughout Russia. Cointelegraph.com published an article called “Spending Bitcoins in Russia…” This article lists a number of places where cryptocurrencies are in circulation, but the main focus was on Kolionovo Village. Information was also presented on our other partners, like Raketa Watch Factory.

And now, a few words about the major event of the last week, which has been widely discussed by the blockchain community. The first Bitcoin bank opened in Vienna, where cryptocurrency can now be exchanged into fiat money and vice versa.
What a wonderful week this was! And we hope that the next one will be even better.
Have a great workweek, stay cheerful and optimistic!
