Winklevoss: Sitting on the Sidelines is Crazier Than Investing in Bitcoin

Prominent Bitcoin investor and Gemini Exchange co-founder Cameron Winklevoss says that the future of money is currently being built with Bitcoin and crypto and that it’s ‘crazy’ to be sitting on the sidelines.  ‘The Future of Money is Literally Being Built’ Popular cryptocurrency commentator and a prominent Bitcoin investor Cameron Winklevoss has argued the craziness of investing in the crypto space. He said: “Some people think it’s crazy to invest in crypto. Maybe. But definitely not as crazy as sitting on the sidelines when the future of money is literally being built before your eyes.” The Winklevoss twins, in general, have been more than well-known in the space. Earlier in January, they said that Bitcoin will pass the $7 trillion gold market cap. Mr. Wonderful Disagrees One of those who seem to believe that investing in Bitcoin is more than […]

USPS Experiments With Self-Driving Trucks for its Mail Delivery

When it comes to self-driving technology, there are many potential implications to keep in mind at all times. To date, the number of autonomous vehicle son the public road has remained fairly limited. In the US, there will be a real-world trial by USPS involving self-driving trucks for mail delivery.

As far as USPS is concerned, the company wouldn’t mind testing the waters in terms of making mail delivery more efficient along the way. […]

Blockchain Technology is Having a Massive Impact on the Genomics Industry

Although blockchain has become almost synonymous with cryptocurrency, they are, in fact, very different. Cryptocurrency are digital assets, like Bitcoin, that serve as a medium of exchange to secure financial transactions. The past few years have been a very exciting time for many traders as fortunes were made and lost before one could blink. Blockchain technology, on the other hand, is changing the world in a very different way than cryptocurrency. Many companies in all sorts of different industries are attempting to integrate blockchain technology into their daily operations in an effort to radically transform their respective fields. One industry that appears to be gaining significant traction thanks to the implementation of blockchain technology is the genomic data industry. Growth of Genomics In order to determine what kind of impact blockchain technology can have on a particular industry, it’s important […]

Why You Should Consider Investing in STELLAR (XLM)

Stellar (XLM) is a cryptocurrency, a digital asset, a medium of exchange for secure financial transactions. Cryptocurrencies use a decentralized control as opposed to common central banking systems. This decentralization is usually controlled by a distributed ledger technology like blockchain processes. The well-known Bitcoin currency, first released in 2009, is considered as the first decentralized cryptocurrency. However, since its release, over 4.000 alternative cryptocurrencies have been created. Stellar (XLM) is one of them, and it may unveil more value than most current altcoins. The internet is made up of network servers containing our date, websites and applications. Like the Internet, Stellar is a network of decentralized servers in many locations that power the distributed ledger. This ledger records every transaction in the system for people and companies alike. A complete copy of the global ledger exists on each Stellar server. […]

Ripple Price Prediction And Analysis For May 21st – XRP to Recover

By Dmitriy Gurkovskiy, Chief Analyst at RoboForex The XRP is recovering on May 21 after the previous selloff, trading around $0.4013. Long term wise, after getting to the bottom at $0.2780, the crypto started trading sideways near $0.4540. On H4, the price is testing the ascending channel support, which may then push the XRP to the resistance at $0.4540, and then to the ascending channel upper boundary at $0.5240; this is well confirmed with the MACD heading upwards. On H1, the price is making lower highs, which is forming a descending channel. With the Stochastic headed down, the price may well hit the current channel support and reach first $0.3460 and then the major channel boundary at $0.3460. After analyzing Ripple quarterly reports, Coin Metrics discovered discrepancies with the blockchain, which means the coins are allocated not in the way […]

AT&T Claims Innocence In Recent SIM-Swapping Suit

Phone and internet service provider AT&T claims that it is not responsible for a series of recent SIM-swapping complaints. Was AT&T’s Security Lacking Somehow? Recently, Live Bitcoin News reported on a man named Michael Terpin, an AT&T customer that had allegedly been the victim of SIM-swapping. Terpin alleges that a man bypassed his phone’s security to gain access to some of his online accounts, of few of which were crypto-related. He then managed to steal Terpin’s login information and steal millions in crypto funds. The culprit has since been charged for the crime and a court has ruled that he must pay back everything he stole. At first glance, it appears this case is closed. But Terpin is taking things a few steps further. He alleges that AT&T’s security protocols weren’t strong enough, which is what allowed the culprit to […]

New York Post Publishes the Most ‘Insightful’ Anti-Bitcoin Article Yet

There are certain mainstream media outlets which are well known for their generally anti-Bitcoin stance in published ‘news’ stories. But at least they usually try to back up their position with something vaguely resembling an argument. No such qualms for The New York Post in its latest cryptocurrency article, “Bitcoin will soon be worth zero.” At Least Four Factual Errors In Just 89 Words 89 words (and 4 numbers). That’s all New York Post columnist, John Crudele, felt was required to back up his headline assertion. “But wait,” I hear you cry, “That’s not enough to put forward a well reasoned argument, or even a solid opinion.” And you’d be right. It was however enough to make at least four factual errors, and of course required the omission of several important considerations. There was also a worrying lack of actual […]

5 Reasons why the Bitcoin Price Uptrend has Stalled

It has been a rather quiet week for Bitcoin so far. Despite a very promising start to May of 2019, the uptrend has ground to a halt. While that is not entirely unexpected, a lot of traders and speculators are growing antsy once again. There are several reasons as to why the Bitcoin price uptrend has stalled. How much of a role these all play in the big picture, is up for debate. The Bitcoin Mempool is Filling up Again There are always some things going on with Bitcoin which most people will not notice immediately. As has been the case for some time now, there will be periods when the BTC transaction queue fills up quickly and confirmations will take longer to materialize. While this problem can usually be solved by simply paying a higher transaction fee, it is […]

Crypto Scams More Than Tripled Last Year

Cryptocurrency is becoming a legitimate industry, but it’s probably not happening fast enough. Fraud Is Still Too Consistent A new report suggests that more than $32 million was lost to cryptocurrency scams in 2018. This is a raging sign that the industry still lacks appropriate regulation and that hackers and malicious actors are still too active throughout the space. What can we do about this? It’s a question that’s likely on enthusiasts’ minds everywhere, whether they’re longtime traders with tons of experience or they’ve traded only .0001 percent of a bitcoin in the past. Either way, regardless of what you’ve traded or invested in, if you have a stake in the industry, consistent fraud is likely to pose a threat to you one way or another.

Ethereum (ETH) Getting Ready for Another Shot Above $260

Ethereum price is consolidating lock step with Bitcoin price but the current hourly chart suggests the top altcoin could be staging another attempt at $260. Ethereum Market Overview After rallying more than 100 percent since April, Bitcoin price has taken a slight breather and Ethereum (ETH) appears to be doing the same. Yesterday the market paused while waiting for the SEC’s decision on a Bitcoin-ETF and even though the unsurprising delay seems to have had little impact on price action, Bitcoin and Ethereum could trade sideways for a tad bit longer.

Blockchain Trends Explained: What are Crypto Collectibles?

Blockchains are amazingly popular nowadays. But what is a blockchain? How do they work, what problems do they solve and how can they be used? As what the name indicates, a blockchain is a chain of blocks that contains information. This process was originally described in 1991 by a group of researchers and its original purpose was to timestamp digital documents so that’s it’s not possible to backdate or tamper with them which is almost like a notary. However, it went by mostly unused until it was adapted by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2009 to create the digital cryptocurrency called Bitcoin. A blockchain is a distributed ledger that is completely open to anyone. They have an interesting property: once some data has been recorded inside a blockchain, it becomes very difficult to change it. So how does that work? Well, let’s a closer look […]

Four Ideas to Enable Disclosures for Security Tokens

Disclosures continues to be one of the existential challenges to the security token industry. In a market without any information about active digital securities, the opportunities for achieving fair trading remain very limited and that dynamic gets worse as the market growths. When comes to security tokens, disclosures is not a problem with a unique solution. Quite the opposite, there are numerous models that can be applied to enable better information flow for digital securities . In the past, I’ve outlined some ideas about the challenge of disclosures in security tokens. Today, I would like to propose four different models that might help to tackle this challenge for both basic and really sophisticated scenarios. It is natural to think about disclosures as an information flow problem but I think that perspective results constrained when comes to security tokens. After all, asset classes […]
