Liechtenstein-Based Crypto Fund Manager ReceivesBacking from Dubai Royal
Dubai royal and EmiratesGroup chairman Sheikh Ahmed bin Al Maktoum is backing Lichtenstein-basedcryptocurrency fund manager Invao, according to a report from Bloomberg on Feb5. The fund management firm purportedly aims to secure more inveSTOrs in theUnited Arab Emirates (UAE).
The Sheikh’s private office,known simply as The Private Office, will reportedly help Invao to securefunding in the UAE. The Private Office also invests in cryptocurrencies andblockchain startups.
Despite a slump incryptocurrencies the previous year, Invao has already invested over $1 millionand managed to turn a profit, according to business publication ArabianBusiness. “EVEN in our worst mONTh we still made 8 percent profit on ourinvestments,” said Frank Wagner, co-founder of Invao.
Invao’s partnership is partof a plan by the UAE government to become a blockchain investment hub by 2021,according to comments made to Arabian News by Private Office CEO Hisham AlGrug.

SCA chief executive Obad Al Zaabi said that the agency had“signed agreements with law firms to come up with the sandbox and rulebooks forthe issuance of ICOs.”
Bitcoin’s ‘LightningTorch’ Has Blazed Through 37 Countries So Far
The bitcoin community iscurrently immersed in an experiment called the “lightning torch.”The effort isintended to show the value of bitcoin’s lightning network – an up-and-comingtechnology that is experimental and hard to use so far, but it does offerimprovements over today’s most common payment systems by allowing users to passmoney around the world quickly and without a third party, unlike Mastercard andPaypal.
And participants are out toshow this facet of the technology in a kind of global rELAy race using anever-increasing amount of BTC. By way of the SOCial media platform Twitter,people pass the “torch payment” from one person to another, adding 10,000satoshis (worth about $0.34 at press time) to the payment before sending itfurther along. Imagine a kind of lightning network-style snowball effect andyou get the basic gist of what’s happening around the world.
It’s been called the “LNTrust Chain” since whoever has the torch is supposed to send it on to someonETHey trust will send the payment on, rather than keep the payment tothemselves. Indeed, developers might still call lightning “reckless,” sinceit’s experimental software and users can lose money if they (or the software)makes a wrong move. There’s even a Twitter hashtag dedicated to this fact.
But so far, the experimentseems to be having its intended effect, The “torch” has attracted theparticipation of 139 people in at least 37 countries, according to thepseudonymous torch ringleader, who goes by the name Hodlonaut. The list ofparticipants includes some notable names in the bitcoin community, such asadvocate and Mastering Bitcoin author Andreas Antonopoulos.“Heretical thoughtof the day: Playing #LNtrustchain is better than watching the Superbowl,” hetweeted after sending the torch to the next participant, adding:“Ok, I lied.Anything is better than watching the Superbowl for this geek.”Thus far, otherparticipants include Morgan Creek Digital founder Anthony Pompliano andLightning Labs engineer Joost Jager.
On January 19th, Hodlonautsaid he would pass on 100,000 satoshis to the first person he trusts. “How manysatoshis until it breaks” he tweeted.“The reason I started this was just tohave some fun with the lightning network and maybe spread more awareness. Ithought it would maybe do five or six hops and then die, without many peoplenoticing,” Hodlonaut told CoinDesk. But now, of course, it’s grown into aworldwide phenomenon as illustrated in the map above, equipped with its ownwebsite and an accompanying hashtag. Not to mention, it’s come to mean a lot toits participants.
“The #LNTrustChain showedthe world: 1. Lightning works and it’s amazing. All of us who’ve used it in asolo context (buying stickers, playing games, etc) already knew it, but thisexperiment was the first widespread public demonstration of its power,” saidone user.
Antonopoulos told CoinDeskthat the torch represents a way to test and uncover problems with thetechnology. And it’s not quite as easy to participate as it sounds: setting upa lightning node is a hard enough task, but there are other tricky factors aswell.“To be able to ‘play’, your [lightning network] node must be wellconnected, with enough capacity and well balanced (local vs remote balance),”he explained. “Since a lot of that is not fully automated yet, it poses achallenge for node operators and an opportunity to test their setup. As theamount gets bigger, it is harder and harder to find routes and keep it going.”
In this way, the lightningtorch can help to unearth bugs, Antonopoulos added. It’s even been used toexperiment with new tech. The first so-called “hodlinvoice” – a new type oftech by LND – was used in the wild for the first time. As Hodlonautexplained:“The way this has played out has completely blown my mind, and mademe realize how awesome the bitcoin community is.”To that end, he’s been makingsure people know who has the torch and cat-herding the community on Twitter.
As might be expected fromany kind of globe-trotting experiment, the torch itsELF almost died a fewtimes, most notable on Jan. 31 when a Twitter user by the name of edward_btcstole it.“I’ll seize it because I can, and no one can stop me. This isbitcoin,” edward_btc wrote, his point being that bitcoin is supposed to be“trustless” money. The community responded with irritation, not wanting thetorch to die out.“Are you really going to be *that* guy Seriously” respondedElizabeth Stark, the CEO of Lightning Labs and one of CoinDesk’s MostInfluential awardees for 2018.
On a darker level, though,edward_btc went as far as to claim that he received death threats for keepingthe torch. And later on, he claimed that he was actually planning to send thetorch on. But before he was given a chance, user Klaus Lovegreen swooped in andstarted a new torch.“Is there anyone with some dignity around that that can betrusted with the Lightning Torch” he said. Since then, the torch has jumpedanother 30 hops. But when will it end As it stands, there’s a hard-coded limitto how large the torch can get: 4,390,000 satoshis, which worth about $150. Oncethe torch reaches this threshold, the community plans to donate the proceeds toa charitable cause: likely Bitcoin Venezuela, a non-profit dedicated to raisingawareness of cryptocurrency in the troubled South American country.
Blockchain.com LaunchesNew Bitcoin Cash Block Explorer
Wallet provider Blockchain.comhas started offering a new tool for users to peer into the inner workings oftheir cryptocurrency. The company has launched a Bitcoin Cash (BCH) blockexplorer that allows people to search for transaction hashes, blocks andaddresses on the BCH blockchain.
Blockchain.com, the popularcryptocurrency wallet provider, has announced the launch of a new Bitcoin Cash(BCH) block explorer. The company explained, for the benefit of individuals whomay be unfamiliar with the concept, that they can think about the tool as abrowser for the blockchain. It allows users to search for detailed informationon specific BCH blocks, check whether a transaction has confirmed, view thebalance of a wallet address, monitor market prices, and even watch real-time networktransactions.
“As more cryptocurrenciesdevelop and grow, providing direct access and insight across networks iscrucial. Blockchain Explorer is the most trusted source for blockchain data.Our focus has always been on providing the most up to date and accurateinformation available,” the Blockchain.com team stated on Feb. 4. “Today, we’reexcited to introduce Bitcoin Cash to the existing lineup of supportedcryptocurrencies on our Explorer. You can now search for BTC/ETH/BCHtransaction hashes, blocks and addresses in a single search bar.”
The BCH tool is only thethird block explorer supported by Blockchain.com after Bitcoin Core (BTC) andEthereum (ETH). When the company launched another service last month the teammentioned that it has received more questions about bitcoin cash recently thanany other crypto asset supported by the Blockchain Wallet.
In January the companylaunched an educational tool called Blockchain Primers. The service is intendedto provide a relatively concise overview of each crypto asset includingbackground material, the latest market data and analysis. The first reportissued on it was an introduction to BCH, whose advantages over BTC, accordingto the research, include greater maximum onchain transaction capacity/throughput,lower average transaction fees, and additional smart contract functionality.
