HTC Exodus 1s Smartphone Can Hold the Entire BTC Ledger

HTC – an electronics company based in Taiwan – has released a new smartphone capable of running an entire bitcoin node. In other words, it can hold the entire bitcoin ledger with an SD card that’s purchased separately. HTC – Paving the Way to Greatness Known as the Exodus 1s, the phone clearly has a lot of storage space and memory. With the entire bitcoin network being held on a person’s phone, that’s roughly 260 gigabytes of memory right there – and the network is estimated to grow by approximately 60 gigabytes each year. One’s phone holding the entire network also leads to greater security and privacy by shielding it from third party middlemen, which opens the door to cyberattacks. HTC chief officer Phil Chen says that running a full bitcoin node is the thing to do, even though it […]

Everything you Need to Know About the Recent Qtum Hard Fork

Even the lesser-known cryptocurrencies tend to undergo radical development changes. Qtum is one interesting example, as the network has entered its second phase earlier this week. Similar to most currencies, this project underwent a hard fork in its own right. Some crucial changes have been introduced which need to be highlighted.  More Blocks and Staking Rewards Whereas most cryptocurrencies become deflationary as time progresses, the Qtum 2.0 upgrade ushers in a slightly different change. The developers have purposefully opted to increase the number of blocks generated by the network per day. This will make it easier to process more transactions quicker, which is always a welcome change. Reducing long block spaces between different blocks is always a welcome change of pace.  There is a secondary purpose to this approach. Because Qtum offers proof-of-stake capabilities, stakers will earn more coins because […]

Bitcoin Price at $2,000? Peter Schiff Criticized for Extreme Predictions

Bitcoin price might free fall to $2,000 – this is what gold proponent Peter Schiff sees in the charts. But the extreme prediction raised criticisms. Gold Bug Peter Schiff Sees Doom for Bitcoin BTC is at crossroads once again, after breaking below $8,000. Predictions of new lows were triggered, but the expectations of Peter Schiff are the most extreme ones. Crypto trader Josh Rager laughed at Schiff’s approach at seeing a large-scale head-and-shoulders pattern on the bitcoin price chart in 2019. Imagine believing that you can actually predict the price of Bitcoin on high time frame charts by using H&S patterns https://t.co/0XUoUN48E4 — Josh Rager (@Josh_Rager) October 19, 2019 Bitcoin prices have shown several patterns for the medium to longer-term, but the price remains unpredictable.

Bitcoin (BTC) Mining is Actually Green

Bitcoin (BTC) mining uses up as much electricity as Austria in a year, at 73.12 TW/h, shows data collected by Digicomist.com. This exorbitant energy use is viewed as one of the strongest arguments that mining is an activity extremely damaging to the environment. But is that entirely true?  Bitcoin Mining Achieves Synergy with Hydroelectric Stations But another analysis shows that currently, BTC mining is actually quite eco-friendly. The chief reason is that the main source of power is hydroelectric energy. Based on the recent research of the CoinDCA Bitcoin Blog, mining facilities are actually a good match for hydroelectric power stations. Bitcoin mining farms, built downriver from the Three Gorges Dam in China, or using hydroelectric power in Washington, are actually a boon to the industry. Mining is a 24/7 activity, always ready to absorb excess power. The blog states: […]

Lump-Sum Bitcoin Purchase Gives 68 Percent Better ROI Than DCA

For those without the time, technical knowledge, or courage, to trade daily bitcoin markets, there are two simple investment strategies. These being lump-sum purchase and dollar-cost averaging (DCA) whereby the purchase is spread over monthly installments. Conventional wisdom might suggest that DCA should be the preferred route, smoothing out volatility in the daily bitcoin price. However, recent research seems to point to a lump-sum purchase giving better returns around 68% of the time. But how accurate is that? You Can’t Argue With The Data Many people, myself included, will say that making regular monthly payments (DCA) is a great way to invest. All of the difficulty in deciding the perfect time to buy disappears, and the volatility of the market becomes irrelevant. As an added bonus, during bear markets, one is pretty much guaranteed to have bought the dip. So what’s […]

Bitcoin’s ‘Loss-Adjusted Market Cap’ is 87 Percent of $104 Billion

The US Federal Reserve has continued its streak of quantitative easing, by pouring in funds to uphold the confidence that liquidity won’t dry out. The latest sum, $104 billion, is almost close to Bitcoin’s loss-adjusted market valuation. Tuur Demeester, founding partner at Adamant Capital, and Bitcoin proponent commented on the Fed’s latest liquidity injection. $104B in QE just today… that’s 87% of Bitcoin’s loss adjusted market cap. https://t.co/46Tlzdyv1A — Tuur Demeester (@TuurDemeester) October 18, 2019 Fed Comes to the Rescue for Short-Term Liquidity The Fed has issued a series of overnight or longer-term facilities, putting securities on its balance in exchange for fiat. This increases the available funds for commercial banks and is supposed to give confidence that liquidity and interbank payments won’t dry out.

Kevin Pan: Privacy is Bitcoin’s Biggest Issue Right Now

If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that bitcoin and the crypto industry probably need to up the ante on their privacy protocols. While blockchain is typically more secure than other forms of digital finance technology, we are often hearing stories about exchange hacks and malicious actors that seek to get their fingers on digital funds that just don’t belong to them. Bitcoin Privacy Needs to Be Upped Kevin Pan, the CEO of Poolin (one of the top three bitcoin mining pools in the space), alleges that privacy should be bitcoin’s biggest concern at this time. He also says that the government’s approach to crypto regulation and transactions could potentially lead to further problems down the line granted people aren’t careful. He explains: The real problem with bitcoin may be privacy. There is no other big question […]

Poloniex Becomes an Independent Company Again Following Circle Spinoff

A lot of things change behind the scenes of the cryptocurrency industry. Poloniex, only recently acquired by Circle, is now being spun off into a new company by the name of Polo Digital Assets, Ltd. It is a surprising turn of events, as it seems the focus of the exchange will shift as well.  Poloniex Spins off Given how surprised most cryptocurrency enthusiasts were when Circle acquired Poloniex, it was seemingly a matter of time until that situation changed. The platform had a very negative reputation at that point, primarily due to some very odd trading behavior and customer support. Under the management of Circle, Poloniex reclaimed some of its lost glory. The exchange was never able to play any major role of importance in this industry once again, however. It now appears that the situation will change once again. […]

Today Marks the Mining of the 18 Millionth Bitcoin

Today, on Friday, the 18 millionth bitcoin is set to be mined. That means there are only three million BTC units left to extract after this. Bitcoin Will Become Harder to Get The mining process behind bitcoin has been a rather controversial activity. For one thing, China says that it is damaging to the Earth’s environment. The country has long been considering a ban on bitcoin and crypto mining in the future. Second, there have been huge concerns regarding a bitcoin 51 percent attack from enterprises like Bitmain, arguably the largest bitcoin mining operation in China. In addition, many acknowledge that there are only 21 million bitcoins in existence, but everyone seems to differ on the actual fate of the currency once every unit is extracted or mined. Some claim that bitcoin is likely to become useless, or at least […]

It’s Friday, October 18, 2019, and once again, everybody’s favorite cryptocurrency has fallen into the $7,000 range.

Bitcoin Again Heading for Lows Bitcoin has been moving up and down for roughly one month. The late September bloodbath that ultimately caused the currency to lose about $1,400 in just a matter of minutes seems to have had a long-term effect on the currency, as it has yet to show any serious signs of recuperation. How can a coin that was trading in the $13,000 range just a few months ago have lost so much of its value so quickly? This is a question that’s likely on every crypto enthusiasts’ mind, and it seems that there’s […]

The History and Future of the Eyeglasses Economy

Since, glasses have taken on a world of their own, influencing science, and science influence them. Today, 64% of the American population wears glasses – that’s about 184 million people numerically. We seem to be aware of the primary reasoning for glasses (astigmatism, myopia, and hyperopia); however, we have become numb to the basics of glasses themselves.   In the 18th century, glasses received a groundbreaking update. Temples were added to the design, extending the glasses over the ears to allow hands-free use. These were the first “wearable” glasses known to man. As time went on, the 19th century brought about mass-produce. This allowed frames and lenses to be rapidly developed to make glasses available to everyone.   Now we have […]
