AnChain.AI and Bitrue Exchange have recently entered into a strategic partnership to secure their blockchain ecosystem. The strategic partnership was formed in Palo Alto in December 2018.

Bitrue has an amazing community full of crypto enthusiasts, investors, and business partners. AnChain.AI is very excited to be joining this welcoming community!

How will this impact the blockchain ecosystem?

AnChain.AI is committed to securing the entire blockchain ecosystem as described by our three eternal themes: transaction, code, and infrastructure security.

There have been numerous exchange breaches such as the Binance Syscoin incident, MapleCoin Exchange, and many others this year. In 2018 alone, over $1B in digital assets have been stolen from active exchanges in operation! Security and transparency are what this nascent industry needs the most at this time. Both AnChain.AI and Bitrue share the same vision of providing best security practices and maximizing transparency for investors, traders, developers, users, and the entire community.

Ethereum Classic (ETC) 51% Attack Detected On Bitrue

On January 7th, Ethereum Classic (ETC) experienced a 51% attack that included a double spend. A double spend is a flaw where the same digital token can be spent more than once, noting a single point of failure. Bitrue is one of the exchanges that experienced the ETC 51% attack. The attacker tried to withdraw 13,000 ETC from Bitrue, but the withrawal was halted by its internal system.

Bitrue took quick action to avoid this disastrous event by prioritizing security and immediately pausing interactions with the ETC blockchain. As a result of its diligence and quick action, Bitrue has been endorsed by a large group of community members for being transparent and setting up a standard for how crypto exchanges ought to behave in incidents like these.
