HYCM Trading Platform Adds XRP and Bitcoin Cash CFDs

Cryptocurrency will continue to make a big impact in the world of traditional finance. More and more companies are offering cryptocurrency-related CFDs as we speak. HYCM, a global leader in online capital markets trading, has added both XRP and Bitcoin Cash to its range of cryptocurrency offerings. It’s a major step forward for the cryptocurrency industry as a whole, although it remains to be seen whether or not this will have any long-term impact. HYCM Adds More Cryptocurrency CFDs It’s always good to see companies double down on their cryptocurrency-related CFD offerings. Whereas most providers grant access to Bitcoin through vehicles such as this one, it is evident there are other currencies worth paying attention to as well. HYCM has acknowledged there is a lot more to cryptocurrency than just Bitcoin, which is why they added both XRP and BCH CFDs […]

The Future of the Digital Wallet

The origins of the digital wallet cannot be pinned down exactly. All we know is that the idea had actually circulated around in the late 90’s, but few utilized it. A couple of entrepreneurial companies such as eBay came up with early e-payment programs – but they failed due to poor publicity. We would come to know this as the era of the first generation of digital wallets. Fast forward two decades and a technological revolution later, and we are currently in the third generation of digital wallets. And as they say, the third time’s the charm. Unlike the first generation of digital wallets, the second generation actually had a substantial number of backers that commanded authority in the financial sphere, such as MasterCard and Visa. However, there was one large issue with this generation of digital wallet services, and […]

The Aftermath of the Weiss Cryptocurrency Ratings

On January 24, investment ratings company Weiss Ratings released its ratings of 74 cryptocurrencies. While the list is only available for purchase, it was possible to access it for free under a specific subdomain on the company’s site, which allowed many individuals to download, share, and read the list. While some individuals were elated to see strong ratings for their personal favorites, many more were infuriated and perplexed by the seemingly unresearched or even random grades given. Ethereum and EOS topped the ratings, each receiving a solid B, while Bitcoin was assigned an unimpressive C+. Founded in 1971, Weiss Ratings has been a respected provider of investment ratings for decades. However, the reputation of the company seems to have diminished rapidly since its peak in the 1990s. Following a 2009 SEC settlement, Weiss Ratings has become, in the eyes of many, a […]

VC Jason Calacanis: Bitcoin Is a Huge Fraud and Could Drop to Zero

Venture capitalists are not too certain that the Bitcoin price will be able to maintain its momentum. That is only to be expected after the major correction we recently went through. Jason Calacanis is concerned about the future and predicts there’s a one-in-three chance that Bitcoin’s price will go to zero. Although it seems highly unlikely things will get out of hand so quickly, there is always a chance something like this might happen. Can the Bitcoin Price Stay in the Green? Even though 2017 was a spectacular year for cryptocurrencies in general, it is safe to say that things will not necessarily remain so positive in 2018. In fact, early 2018 resulted in a major Bitcoin price correction which very few people had expected. Even though such things can always happen – and usually tend to occur in January – the latest correction has some […]

Three Criminals Are Unsuccessful in Robbing a Canadian Bitcoin Firm

Criminals have taken a major liking to Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. In most cases, their attempts to illegally obtain such currencies are linked to online activity. Ransomware, hacking, and data breaches are just a few examples of Bitcoin-related criminal activity. In Ottawa, however, things recently went a bit differently. Three individuals there attempted to rob a Bitcoin financial institution earlier this week. It is a very disturbing development, even though the perpetrators left empty-handed in the end. Bitcoin Robbery at Gunpoint In a way, no one should be surprised to learn that criminals are becoming more brazen when it comes to stealing Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. This is especially true when it comes to cybercrime, but it seems we also have a trickle-down effect in the real world right now. In Ottawa, three individuals attempted to rob a Bitcoin financial institution in broad daylight. […]

Visa and Mastercard Now Charge an Additional Fee for Buying Cryptocurrency

There are many reasons why so many people use the Coinbase exchange. One of the main factors is that the company supports both credit and debit cards to buy Bitcoin and other supported currencies. Unfortunately, it seems there are some issues with these payment methods. A lot of customers have complained about extra charges when using a payment card on Coinbase. It seems such transactions are now considered “cash advances”, which is not a positive development.

If you haven’t heard of Bitcoin by now, you’ve probably been living under a rock. However, while many people know what Bitcoin is – and have even willingly put forward large amounts of their own money to invest in it, despite having heard of it for the first time yesterday – very few people know much more beyond that.

Most Cryptocurrencies Are More Centralized Than You Think

The whole point of cryptocurrencies is that they’re decentralized. Peer-to-peer cash; trustless exchange; bypassing intermediaries. So why are numerous cryptocurrencies structured more like central banks? From adjusting wallet balances to controlling nodes, many crypto projects behave just like the financial institutions they were meant to replace. Throw in the cult of a strong leader, and there’s little to differentiate some altcoins from the Paypals and Visas of the world. Also read: Analyst: IOTA Sharply Overvalued Due to “Overwhelming Evidence of Serious Flaws” The De-Decentralization of Cryptocurrencies The word “decentralized” doesn’t appear in Satoshi’s original white paper (nor does “blockchain” for that matter) but it’s since become synonymous with Bitcoin and its successors.
