Crypto News Flash: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Ripple and XRP, Tron (TRX), Litecoin (LTC), Monero (XMR)

From Bitcoin bragging rights to a new way to move Ether, here’s a look at some of the stories breaking in the world of crypto.

Bitcoin (BTC)

A security expert at Google is warning Bitcoin and crypto hodlers to avoid bragging about their bounties.

Mark Rishner, the director of product management at Google Identity, told CNBC that scammers often do heavy research on potential targets using social media. He says email scams in particular are growing more sophisticated and personalized by the day.

“It’s a mistake to associate decades-old email scams — like the once-prolific ‘Nigerian Prince’ scam — with today’s criminals. The newer crop of email attacks often come across as indistinguishable from personal messages you could receive from friends or family.”

Ethereum (ETH)

The most popular cryptocurrency wallet for Ethereum and ERC20 tokens just added a timely new feature.

MyEtherWallet says users can now schedule transactions ahead of time, allowing people to stay on top of subscriptions, participate in ICOs at odd hours, or manage payments for any other scenarios that require a well-timed transfer.

Ripple and XRP

Ripple’s founder Chris Larsen decided early on to prepare for what he saw as the coming internet of value.

In a new interview with the Mack Institute, Ripple’s senior vice president of product, Asheesh Birla, says the company was actually too early on the scene, but managed to stick around and make solid partnerships in preparation for a potential blockchain takeover of traditional finance.
