Top Bitcoin & Crypto News Stories for 22nd June 2018
Nano (#37) sounds like a fantastic cryptocurrency out of the box — it’s completely free and ultra fast, not to mention environmentally-friendly. However, along with the recent BitGrail hack, it’s been weighed down by the lack of good wallets.
The Nano Wallet Company, which is a separate entity to the Nano Foundation, just released their first suite of dedicated Nano wallets — with support for iOs, Android, Mac, Windows, and Linux.
TRON (TRX) is an incredibly popular project, standing at number nine in the rankings and with a market cap of just under US $3 billion.
However, users have been questioning the integrity of the TRON team, with multiple claims that they’ve been plagiarizing code from other projects — of which Ethereum is the main target. Developers and researchers seem to agree this is the case.

The VeChain Foundation’s official Twitter page has just published a timeline for progress on their mainnet, which, among other things, proposes Ledger integration for the token in August.
