Crypto Death Spiral Incoming

Image
Crypto has had a good run in 2021. What I'm seeing now is weakness in the entire US economy and by extension cryptocurrencies as well. There are bad hedge funds who are manipulating the stock market by creating shares from thin air using naked shorts. This strategy worked well for a while but now they have dug a hole too deep to get out of alive. What I am anticipating is that karma is a bitch. Once the regulators step in and have adjusted to this new reality, we will see a financial meltdown similar to the financial crisis of 2008. Many experts have warned us that this is happening. Most people are too addicted to easy gains to notice. You are probably wondering what to do about this problem. My answer is to buy Gamestop ( GME ). After conducting extensive research into crypto markets and the stock market, I have found that there are not too many safe places to put your money. GME is number one on my list because there is a tremendous short squeeze happening now. If you want to re

HandCash - Bitcoin Wallet App Interview

Image
I recently had the opportunity to interview Alex Agut , Product Designer from HandCash  to see what it is all about. I am very impressed with the professionalism, quality and speed of this Bitcoin Wallet. In this interview, Alex is nice enough to answer my questions in Q: / A: format about holding cryptocurrency on your cell phone. Readers will find our conversation full of product details and I learned a great deal about HandCash and their future prospects. Overall this makes me very optimistic about Bitcoin SV (BSV) and HandCash in general. ($JARED Handle) Jared: Where did you come up with the idea for HandCash ?  Alex: My cofounder and friend Rafa and I have been working together in other projects and apps for a few years, and we’ve always liked experimenting with new technologies and create small MVPs that can demonstrate value of some sort. In summer of 2017 we started digging into Bitcoin and we thought: “Why do they call it peer to peer digital cash if it doesn’

What Is The Blockchain?

Blockchain (i.e. Blockchain Technology i.e. The Blockchain) is a computer network that works by being shared freely among and used by many participants. The idea behind blockchain is that there are times when it is beneficial to have a permanent record of transactions. Those transactions can be the purchasing of property, the sale of goods or services, or the exchange of currencies. In its simplest form, a blockchain is just a list of transactions using a medium of exchange. In its initial implementation, that medium was a "coin" called a Bitcoin. Subsequently, many other coins were created and those coins are all used in their own blockchain. As of December 22, 2018, CoinMarketCap lists 2067 coins/tokens ( https://coinmarketcap.com/all/views/all/ ). On the most basic level, they are all mediums of exchange for transactions that are put on a list. This list is called a ledger and this is intuitive as transactions are frequently economic. When new transactions occur, they

Bitcoin ABC or Bitcoin SV?

This article was written by Greg Wyche . This does not represent the opinion of Jared Schlar. Bitcoin prices fell significantly on 11/14, as a response to the impending fork by bitcoin cash, according to Brian Kelly [1], CEO and Founder of cryto-investment corporation BKCM LLC. [2] Ars Technica reported a 24 hour decline of over 12% Wednesday. [4] Meanwhile, Roger Ver of Bitcoin ABC alleges that November 3rd, Roger Ver sent him a vitriolic e-mail, expressing his willingness to freeze trading of Bitcoin Cash for 2 years, that he hates Ver and that he would prefer Bitcoin "die" rather than become dominated by Bitcoin ABC. He states that he regards the conflict between SV and ABC as a war and that Ver is his enemy. [3] One wonders if a large 687,000 transaction spike on Aug 1st, described by the BCH stress test team through twitter as proof of BCH's scalability [11] will make an impression that lends confidence to those users who believe that Bitcoin Cash is already c

How Do I Run Ads On Bitcoin Cash With Memopay?

Image
I recently had to opportunity to speak with TracySpacy, Founder of  Memopay , a new and very unique advertising network built on a the Bitcoin Cash blockchain. This project is a service which allows business to send messages and run ad campaigns targeted directly to BCH users. Intrigued? Read on to learn more about how this could be a game-changer for driving BCH adoption in the long term and for disrupting the way businesses run ads and communicate with their customers. Jared: How did you come up with the idea for memopay? Please provide a bit of background about yourself and your team (if applicable). TracySpacy: Memopay initially started as an extension to the memo.cash social network. It allows people to send funds to any BCH address outside of the memo.cash network (which was not possible before). One day, one of the memopay users from the BCH community asked if there was a way to add a note to the payment. The question made us think that adding a note to payments might

Human-Friendly QR Codes May Drive BCH Adoption: A conversation with QaRT Wallet developer Kim Jinryul

Image
QaRT Wallet I recently had the opportunity to interview Kim “Randy” Jinyrul, a developer based in South Korea who you may be hearing quite a bit about in the the near future. Randy is quickly making a name for himself in the Bitcoin Cash community with the Beta version of the new QaRT Wallet, a new app that fundamentally changes the way QR codes are used, and increase BCH adoption in the process. Making QR Codes Human QR codes are an incredible innovation. The idea of encoding information and making it quickly and easily scannable goes back decades, to the invention of RFID and barcodes. But just like these older technologies, QR codes have a problem: only a machine capable of scanning and deciphering the code can make any sense of what it means. If you were to look at a QR code right now, would you be able to tell what information it contains without some sort of contextual information or additional explanation? Of course not. Let’s say you got your QR codes mixed up, or

Crypto Market Update 3

Here is my estimated price target for Bitcoin in the short term ($9,000) - https://www.newsbtc.com/2018/07/29/bitcoin-price-weekly-analysis-btc-usd-could-test-9000/ If you haven’t noticed most cryptos are highly correlated with the movements of Bitcoin right now. So wherever Bitcoin goes, until something changes, I imagine most other cryptos will go. There is an opportunity to margin trade Bitcoin right now. The way it was explained to me is basically, you could buy small cryptos with what is called in equities as high Beta. Or you could just buy a bigger coin with a lower Beta, take on some leverage and goose your returns with lower risk. Keep in mind, margin trading is incredibly risky. This data is thanks to - https://www.sifrdata.com/cryptocurrency-correlation-matrix/ Some pundits including Tone Vays are still saying that we will be going to $5,000 per Bitcoin before the next full on bull market. Right now, I believe that is false. I think we have a chance to break

Peak Facebook?

Image
Now that we have crypto, facebook and other FANG related stocks are less valuable. The private ledgers of these FANG companies don’t provide as much public good as the public blockchains. In the future they will become less relevant. For example, this author describes peak facebook as a result of lower daily active users and monthly active users associated with the countries that generate cash for the company. Interestingly, the United States and Europe provide more revenue than most other regions. https://hackernoon.com/the-one-graph-that-shows-again-that-facebooks-epic-run-has-ended-41d28a13203 Also, note that these FANG companies briefly disallowed ads related to cryptocurrency projects on their platforms. They have since retracted that block, probably because they are desperate for the revenue provided by high growth crypto. In my opinion, investing in crypto is like skiing downhill vs cross country skiing. It’s more fun because gravity is your friend. The world is going

Bitcoin Cash Development Series

Image
If you've had the opportunity to visit Coin Dance's development page, there’s a lot of creative energy evident. Several concepts are under discussion, six are classified as under development and five are completed. In an effort to raise awareness of the diligent efforts of our fellow BCH enthusiasts, this is the first of a series of articles on development projects relating to either the BCH source code or the manner in which BCH is processed by financial software. In this article, I will highlight four proposed upgrades to the BCH ecosystem in various stages of development. In a later article, I will discuss two additional development proposals in progress, as well as interview some BCH developers about the challenges they face as innovators in this burgeoning and impactful blockchain space. Finally, in a third article, I will describe the 5 development projects described as complete on Coin Dance. The 4 projects I will summarize today are: BUIP078: Enable Binary Contra

Crypto Market Update 2

Image
I believe the crypto market is going to go down in the short term based on the fact that many ERC-20 tokens could be considered securities. Also, the Ethereum-blockchain size has exceeded 1TB, and yes, it’s an issue. If you couple this with evidence that suggests Ripple’s XRP is a security (based on investor lawsuits), then one could postulate that there is a downward adjustment needed. Here are a few news sources to back up my thoughts: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/surviving-upcoming-erc20-crash-john-gotts/ https://www.coindesk.com/another-investor-lawsuit-claims-xrp-security/ https://hackernoon.com/the-ethereum-blockchain-size-has-exceeded-1tb-and-yes-its-an-issue-2b650b5f4f62
