PayPal To Offer ETH Transactions With MetaMask Integration
Users of PayPal will soon be able to purchase ETH through its service, as the payments firm has revealed it is working on a MetaMask Web3 wallet integration. The integration will allow PayPal users to buy and transfer their ETH from PayPal to MetaMask. PayPal MetaMask Integration PayPal has revealed that it is working with ConsenSys’s MetaMask wallet, as it plans to integrate its buy, sell, and hold crypto services with the wallet provider and help both companies broaden the options for their users when it comes to transferring digital assets from their platforms. The press release states that the partnership between PayPal and MetaMask developer ConsenSys will allow users to select their PayPal accounts as a payment option when purchasing ETH while using the MetaMask app. The offering will facilitate the seamless purchase and subsequent transfer of ETH from PayPal to MetaMask. According to MetaMask, the partnership will also bring more users into the Web 3.0 ecosystem as the sector looks to move forward during the ongoing crypto winter. Lorenzo Santos, ConsenSys product manager, stated in the press release, “This integration with PayPal will allow our U.S. users to not just buy crypto seamlessly through MetaMask, but also to easily explore the Web3 ecosystem.” Details Of The Integration The integration will work similarly to PayPal’s checkout feature at stores such as Etsy and eBay. Users can purchase and transfer ETH by logging into their MetaMask wallets, tapping the “buy” button, and logging into PayPal to make a purchase. According to the company, for the moment, the service will be rolled out only to select US-based MetaMask customers, who could use the service to purchase ETH. However, the company plans to roll out the feature to all US-based users over the coming weeks. Crypto wallets such as MetaMask are often considered the gateway to interacting with the Web 3.0 ecosystem, such as metaverse platforms and Play-to-Earn games. PayPal’s integration with MetaMask could remove the complexity involved in accessing Web 3.0 and purchasing crypto, helping broaden the user base of these applications. PayPal’s Pivot Towards Crypto PayPal has made a major pivot towards crypto over the past few years, which is why the current move comes as no surprise. In 2020, the company allowed its customers to buy, sell, and hold cryptocurrency on its platform. In 2021, the company went ahead and added a “checkout with crypto” option, adding support for major cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and Bitcoin Cash (BCH). More recently, the company announced that it was introducing a new feature that would allow users to transfer their crypto assets from their accounts to any other external wallet or exchange. The move came after the company had mostly siloed in crypto funds within its own ecosystem since introducing services in 2020. The move was announced by Jose Fernandez da Ponte, VP and general manager of blockchain, crypto, and digital currencies at PayPal. “We are thrilled to announce that starting today, PayPal supports the native transfer of cryptocurrencies between PayPal and other wallets and exchanges. This feature has been consistently ranked by users as one of the most requested enhancements since we began offering the purchase of crypto on our platform.” Competitors Exploring Crypto And Web 3.0 PayPal’s competitor Stripe has also announced that it is exploring the Web 3.0 ecosystem. Last week, the company announced the launch of a tool designed to help Web 3.0 companies, games, and NFT marketplaces to allow their users to purchase crypto using fiat currencies. The company, which has partnerships with giants such as Apple and Walmart, stated that it would also be handling compliance, fraud, and KYC (Know Your Customer) checks at its end.

DeFi Protocol Ankr Hit By Multi-Million Dollar Exploit
With the crypto industry’s focus on the FTX fiasco, DeFi hackers have been making merry, hitting Ankr, and as per information available, stealing $5 million. Hackers were able to exploit an unlimited minting bug. The DeFi protocol stated it is working with exchanges to mitigate the hack’s impact. Ankr Falls Victim To Exploit Ankr, a BNB Chain-based decentralized finance (DeFi) protocol, has confirmed that it has fallen victim to a multi-million dollar exploit. The attack occurred on the 1st of December and was discovered by on-chain security analyst PeckShield on the 2nd of December. Ankr confirmed the developments shortly after, stating on Twitter that hackers had managed to exploit the aBNB token. They also announced that they were working with exchanges to halt trading of the token in question. “Our aBNB token has been exploited, and we are currently working with exchanges to immediately halt trading.” Details Of The Hack According to the available details, the hacker was able to mint 20 trillion Ankr Reward Bearing Staked BNB (aBNBc) thanks to a vulnerability in the smart contract for the token. “Our analysis shows the $aBNBc token contract has an unlimited mint bug. Specifically, while mint() is protected with onlyMinter modifier, there is another function (w/ 0x3b3a5522 func. signature) that completely bypasses the caller verification to have arbitrary mint !!!” PeckShield reported that the hacker had transferred around 900 BNB, worth around $253,000 into Tornado Cash. Additionally, the exploiter also bridged USDC and ETH to the Ethereum blockchain. According to PeckShield, the hacker holds 3000 ETH and around 500,000 USDC. The 20 trillion aBNBc tokens held by the attacker make them the 13th largest holder of the token. The aBNBc token is the reward-bearing token for BNB tokens staked on the Ankr platform. Vulnerabilities In The Smart Contract Code Blockchain security firm Beosin confirmed the source of the exploit, stating that it was likely due to vulnerabilities in the smart contract code, along with compromised private keys. According to Beosin, these vulnerabilities could have emerged from a technical upgrade carried out by Ankr. “@ankr has been exploited. $aBNBc has dropped -99.5%. The hacker minted tons of $aBNBc and made a profit of 5,500 BNB (~$1.6 million). The deployer changed the implementation contract to the vulnerable contract address before the attack (possibly due to private key compromise).” A spokesperson for the security firm stated, “It is possible that the deployer’s private key was exposed in this upgrade, leading to an attacker using deployer privileges to modify the contract.” Binance Investigating The Exploit Binance, in a post on the 2nd of December, confirmed that its team was engaged with Ankr and other related parties and was investigating the matter further. It also added that no Binance user funds were at risk. “We are aware of the attack targeting @ankr’s aBNBc token. Our team is engaged with the relevant parties and @BNBCHAIN to investigate further. This is not an attack against #Binance, and your funds are SAFU on our exchange. This thread will be updated should there be any updates.” ANKR And BNB Price Drops As a result of the developments, both ANKR and BNB saw a considerable drop in price. At the time the news of the exploit broke, the ANKR token dropped around 6.6%, falling to $0.0211. However, it has since recovered and is currently trading at $0.0216. The token is already over 90% down from its all-time high of $0.213. The BNB token also dropped, falling by 3.1%. However, this decline was attributed to a wider decline in the crypto markets. DeFi hacks had shot up drastically over the past couple of months, with October becoming the worst month in DeFi history. Several DeFi protocols, such as the Ethereum Alarm Clock Service, Polygon’s QuickSwap, Mango Markets, and others, fell victim to exploits.

Although Bitcoin is widely perceived as the gold standard of the crypto industry, it has been criticized for technical shortcomings as the space has continued to grow. One of its major challenges has been its scalability, mostly given its hard-coded 1 MB block size. This means as the Bitcoin network grows, it also becomes a lot more congested and consequently expensive to transact on.

The discussion around this problem began as early as in 2010, as one of the solutions proposed was to increase Bitcoin's block size but there were those who did not support such a change. Tensions, however, peaked in mid-2017 when proponents of bigger blocks, hard forked Bitcoin to create Bitcoin Cash (BCH), with an 8 MB block limit. This was later increased to 32 MB in 2018.

Bitcoin Cash’s main aim is to realize Bitcoin’s original purpose of serving as a cheap ‘peer-to-peer electronic cash system’. It is supposedly dedicated toward this objective, and is open to increasing block sizes and transaction throughputs, whenever necessary and feasible. Unlike Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash focuses more on becoming a medium of value exchange, rather than being optimized for secure value storage. BCH, the native coin of Bitcoin Cash works just like BTC, meaning it is p2p and can be paid by one person to another, without any censorship or intermediary.

BCH price

According to our BCH live price chart, BCH coin traded within the range of $200 to $700 from the time of its launch in July 2017 till November that year, when boosted by a bullish market, it registered noteworthy gains and peaked at an all-time high of $3,785 on Dec 20, 2017. BCH’s fully diluted valuation was over $79 billion at that point. A corrective phase followed and BCH price retraced to around $640 by April 10, 2018. It rose briefly a month later to breach $1,000, but gave into bearish pressure and continued falling — ending 2018 at $160.

While BCH coin regained some of its lost ground thereafter, it couldn’t break out of $500 resistance, for over 2 years. Its next big surge started around January 2021, when buoyed up by improved market conditions, it rallied on to reach $1,650 on May 12, 2021. However, a bearish phase followed again, returning the BCH price to under $500 territory by year-end. In 2022, BCH coin tested even lower support levels and fell further to under $200 by Q2, 2022.

How BCH works

Bitcoin Cash works a lot like Bitcoin. Both the blockchain networks have a maximum supply of 21 million coins and employ Proof of Work (PoW) consensus mechanism for the verification and processing of transactions. Network participants called ‘miners’ use special computing equipment to compete against each other, to discover and add new blocks to the Bitcoin Cash blockchain. These miners use the SHA-256 hashing algorithm, same as the one used in Bitcoin.  

One of the biggest differences between Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin is how the difficulty level is adjusted for mining new blocks. While in Bitcoin's case, this adjustment is made after every 2016 mined blocks, Bitcoin Cash adjusts its difficulty level every 10 minutes, to provide a more updated insight into its computing power requirement. 

BCH holders can send and receive coins with the help of a unique public key associated with their respective digital wallets. As its average transfer fee is as low as $0.01, with almost-instant settlements, BCH is actively used for micro-transactions, peer-to-peer payments, everyday transactions, international remittances and cross-border trade payments. The coin is also commonly used as a value storage medium.

BCH news, updates and highlights

The year 2020 saw multiple positive developments for BCH, including the launch of the Tether (USDT) stablecoin on the Bitcoin Cash network in March 2020. The largest stablecoin in the world by market cap, USDT, was implemented on the Bitcoin Cash chain, using the SLP (Simple Ledger Protocol) token standard. SLP standard is to Bitcoin Cash what ERC-20 is to Ethereum. As a result, people could now transact USDT coins on the Bitcoin Cash blockchain, apart from other popular networks like Tron, Ethereum, Omni, Liquid Network, EOS and Algorand.

In more recent BCH news, the Bitcoin Cash network underwent a major upgrade on May 15, 2021, resulting in a variety of changes to the blockchain, including enabling of multiple OP_RETURNS, removal of unconfirmed transaction limit, making new mining block default limit size as 8 MB, inclusion on Cash Improvement Proposals (CHIPs) and implementation of double-spend proofs.
