While media headlines tout the number of millionaires Bitcoin has created, the rise of the virtual currency also has another important effect: increasing the number of cryptocurrency jobs. An old saying goes that a rising tide lifts all boats. This can be seen in many industries, such as oil. When the price of oil goes up, people flock to gain employment in the industry. Businesses that provide services and goods to oil production see their bottom line expand as the amount of business they do shoots way up. We’re now seeing this with Bitcoin. As Bitcoin has surged in value over 2017, the number of cryptocurrency jobs has boomed as well. The Jobs Market is Way Up It seems that businesses and people have had Bitcoin on the brain for the last few months. There’s good reason for this as […]

In an unregulated market such as cryptocurrency, bad actors and spontaneous events continually prey upon unknowing individuals. While the victims of these acts typically consist of naive and inexperienced individuals, even savvy traders sometimes find themselves duped by these ploys. Since last Thursday, McAfee Antivirus creator and eccentric cryptocurrency magnate has been tweeting a “coin-of-the-day” to his almost 500,000 followers on Twitter. The results of these daily tweets are exactly what one would expect: the coin spotlighted in each tweet is almost instantly pumped as all of the tech pioneer’s followers rush to buy, guided by a fear of missing out (FOMO). Of course, the pump goes just as quickly as it comes, and while these coins may double or triple in value, the price follows in the opposite direction with a volume just as steep, with the coin soon resetting to its value prior to […]

Trees were trimmed, presents wrapped, and Christmas festivities were at hand when the cryptocurrency market went into a free fall. Investors awoke from their winter’s nap last Friday to a portfolio painted red, an unwelcome presentation of the rosy holiday color that has become a hallmark of the Christmas season.

Investor confidence is building as the market continues its climb out of a bearish slump that left many portfolios less than cheery on the eve of Christmas festivities. At the lowest point of the correction, Bitcoin fell to as low as US$11,000, and the rest of […]
As cryptocurrencies rise in popularity and price, they become more of a lucrative target for hackers and cybercriminals. Many of those getting into crypto now are novices to trading and cyber security, and those are the ones at greatest risk of losing their digital stash to hackers.

The software is designed to harness computing power to mine Monero without the user knowing or consenting. This is effectively theft of the victim’s hardware and power resources to profit the attackers. While powerful desktop PCs are a prime target, mining malware has also emerged on mobile phones. So, if yours has slowed down, it could be under attack. Malware Rising According to a report in the Economic Times, browser-based mining has been around since 2013 but has exploded this […]

McAfee wrote: “As I predicted, Bitcoin is rebounding and rapidly climbing after Christmas. It is still, by far, the best long term crypto investment, and I firmly stand by my prediction of $1 million by the end of 2020.” Historically, bitcoin has demonstrated a tendency to recover soon after a large correction and work up to an all-time high price within a few weeks. Hence, bitcoin’s speedy […]
