ZenGo crypto wallet changes the game by being dead simple to use

Cryptocurrency wallet software can be intimidating to use. With crypto, you are your own bank, which sounds great until you realize that you and you alone are responsible to keep your money safe. 

In practice, this typically means you need to go through the process of creating a new wallet, setting up a password and writing down a lengthy list of words known as a seed phrase. You also have to store the seed phrase in a secure manner, because it’s the only backup for your money in case something goes wrong with the wallet. 

Israel-based startup ZenGo has just launched a cryptocurrency wallet that uses some clever cryptography to make this process much simpler.

A very short primer: A cryptocurrency wallet is, essentially, a pair of public and private cryptographic keys. The public key is your cryptocurrency address (technically, it’s a part of the address but let’s keep it simple), the same one you use for receiving funds. The private key is a long string of symbols that lets you spend the funds residing at that address. 

The private key is simple but impractical to use on an everyday basis. If someone takes a photo of it, or hacks your PC or phone and grabs it, they can spend your cryptocoins at will. This is why we have wallet software, which rarely (if ever) actually shows or requires you to type in your private key. Instead, you choose some sort of password to protect your funds, but your private key remains in your possession, typically as the seed phrase mentioned above. So if your phone or PC gets stolen, you can reinstall the wallet software, punch in the seed phrase, and access your money. 

The seed phrase, while a little bit easier to write down than the private key, is also long and

TL;DR: The Complete Cryptocurrency Investment bundle is on sale for £19.21 as of June 25, saving you 94% on list price.


If we’re to believe every plot point from the movie The Social Network, Mark Zuckerberg allegedly stole the idea for Facebook from the Winklevoss twins and went on to become one of the youngest billionaires ever. 

Things ended up working out for the Winklevoss brothers, though. They received a $65 million settlement and competed in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but they still weren’t a member of the prestigious billionaire club. That changed when they finally became billionaires thanks to Bitcoin. 

For the uninitiated, Bitcoin is a digital payment system and cryptocurrency that’s not tied to any country or bank. Bitcoin sometimes gets a bad rap for being associated with criminals and the dark web, but there are many advantages to using a decentralised system.

Even if you don’t have a $65 million to invest, you can still learn how to make mone

There are typos, and then there are typos

Someone appears to have made a mistake this morning when transferring the cryptocurrency ether (ETH), the younger sibling to bitcoin, from one digital wallet to another. After all, when moving around $134 dollars worth of digital currency, it hardly seems like anyone would intentionally pay a $2.6 million fee — and yet that’s exactly what happened. 

That’s right. Someone paid 10,668.73185 ETH, worth approximately $2.6 million at the time, to move 0.55 ETH from one wallet to another. The transaction, in all its painful glory, is visible on Etherscan — a tool for viewing and searching ETH transactions.
