It wasgoed the very first mining pool for CryptoNote based currencies Readers of Cointelegraph were astonished to learn that according to a former writer, they were funded by Bytecoin: While some have personages doubt on my assertion, I have no doubt that CoinTelegraph wasgoed funded by Bytecoin from at least when I embarked and proceeds to get funding from the stable of CryptoNote coins, among other clients.
There is a lotsbestemming of evidence connecting all of the companies mentioned te your question. There may be more connected companies that wij are not yet aware of. From Wikipedia:
The very first Changelly prototype wasgoed created spil a startup te 2013 by the enthusiastic team of MinerGate, a mining pool, that has one of the longest track record ter the crypto industry.
More evidence for the Changelly/Minergate connection has bot reported by Monero users on Reddit:
There is a reason why you are not listed on getmonero.org. You are never responsive to questions and getting support is almost unlikely unless you are willing to beg mods ter the Minergate troll opbergruimte.
Bytecoin, publicly launched te 2014 contrary to false claims of a 2012 launch but significant effort wasgoed expended prior to that time to develop the CryptoNote protocol, which is not based on Bitcoin. Due to their proven high familiarity with the ingewikkeld CryptoNote protocol (at the time) nobody aside from the Bytecoin creators could be behind Minergate.
MinerGate wasgoed founded on 24th of March, 2014. It wasgoed the very first mining pool for CryptoNote based currencies
Readers of Cointelegraph were astonished to learn that according to a former writer, they were funded by Bytecoin:
While some have personages doubt on my assertion, I have no doubt that CoinTelegraph wasgoed funded by Bytecoin from at least when I embarked and proceeds to get funding from the stable of CryptoNote coins, among other clients.
My suspicion is that someone close to the Bytecoin team, perhaps the Bytecoin team itself, possesses CoinTelegraph. But it could be spil CryptoCoinNews P. H. Madore proposed, that they are simply funded by MinerGate, which they certainly have connections to.
More details on the connections can be found te this vraaggesprek with Ian DeMartino, the writer quoted above. CoinTelegraph has partnerships with a number of companies which you did not mention, which could help explain why HitBTC is still listed on CMC, and why BCN no longer has a premine flag.
According to this 2014 Bitcointalk advertising chance announcement Coinmarketcap is part of “The CoinTelegraph Media Group”
Freewallet uses the Changelly API to facilitate cryptocurrency exchanges. They also introduce serious security risks typical of other Bytecoin and closed source Minergate affiliated services:
Also, they implement XMR wallets with your own unique address but they are holding the private key (from you), under the incredible justification of doing it so for “security” of the user.
Chainradar wasgoed launched te 2014 by imready2rock and shares gegevens with Minergate. On Chainradar you will find price quotes “powered by HitBTC” and on Minergate you will find many banner adds for HitBTC. Both concentrate on CryptoNote coins and sometimes suggest gimmicks to encourage users to download closed source software.
Read this response about the failed attempt to force XMR/BCN merge mining shortly after launch. Combine that with more latest plans to promote merge mining with XDN. Only one Monero mining pool supports XMR/XDN merge mining. By this point which one should be demonstrable. The Minergate mining pool is also the one one that adds strange things to tx toegevoegd:
The above test means that by mining on minergate you are “spamming the blockchain with whatever that crap is”.
Ter addition to popular coins, BTC, XMR and DOGE, Fairproof supports the scarcely used XDN and BCN, which coincidentally were discussed above ter the setting of merged mining proposals. Minergate denied an official connection to fairproof when asked about running fairproof banner ads. However there is a loterijlot of circumstantial evidence to toonbank than voorkoop including webstek vormgeving and FairProof advertising te both the BCN and XDN Bitcointalk threads. Supporting hardly used coins when attempting to run a successful business makes little sense, unless you have ulterior motives such spil using them to promote merge mining with Monero, which is only suggested if users download and use closed source Minergate software.
Based on similar circumstantial evidence such spil vormgeving and an “Exchange rate provided by HitBTC” BTCLevels could also possibly be connected.
