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 capabl…

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 be a good o…

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

Image
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 somehow couldn’t remembe…

Dating in 2018

Dating has changed drastically from what it used to be. People are now enabled by all sorts of apps and websites leading to too many options for some people. I would consider the dating market to be highly competitive when compared to years past. Now instead of having to manually reject someone in person, all people have to do is swipe “No”. To me it’s kind of sad considering people have lost the human element.

Now there is a new entrant to the dating market that makes me even more depressed. I call this the evil Umbrella Corporation in the video game series “Resident Evil”. The one that created all the zombies… You won’t even believe what company this is. Surprise, it’s Facebook, the company with countless human rights violations. If you don’t believe me watch the movie “The Social Network”. I could go on about how toxic this company is but they just got 50 million people hacked so I’ll let you come to your own conclusions.

The real point of this blog article is to talk about dating…

Science Fiction World

Sometimes right before bed fear consumes me. I feel like I’m staring at the abyss. My mind is in hyper drive and I’m thinking what is going to happen tomorrow. Will my world change for the worse? I feel like I’m falling. Will my feet ever reach solid ground again or will I keep slipping into a very, very dark place and be totally consumed. Will I get stuck on a ledge while falling and just burn there for eternity.

In our new and shiny science fiction world 1000 cuts will slowly destroy people’s lives. One day you might just wake up and be ruined. I see it online all the time with people desperate for assistance after a string of bad life events. This is what drives people to enter a dark place.

Roger Ver says babies are dying because people don’t have access to sound money aka Bitcoin. My favorite fork of Bitcoin is currently Bitcoin SV. This is completely true especially in countries where inflation is out of control. For example, in Venezuela, the local currency has become complete…

My World

Image
Every day I wake up and worry about my world. Some days I am scared. I wonder why life is getting harder and harder each day. It didn’t used to be this way. What am I doing wrong? Sometimes, I look up and ask this question. Some days are better than others. I read the news and see fear. Lately, I try to read news that inspires me. That makes me a better person. I try to do the right thing and help people in need around me. Why do I do this? Because, what if instead of being me, I was in their shoes. Wouldn’t they appreciate the help?

The world is evolving quickly now. Instead of living life like its 1950’s America, we live in a world of science fiction. Technologies are changing faster than people can keep up. I worry sometimes, what if I can’t keep up? I think this is on the minds of many people throughout the world. What if the cost of items I need gets too expensive for me to pay for? Then what? Do I give up and end my life? I’m sure this thought process has gone through people’s…

Nature Walk 2

Today's blog post is about my second nature walk on vacation. This post contains two videos. One video is about me walking on a log over a creek. Watch the video to see if I fall in the water. The second video is a 360 degree view of a pretty meadow with paths cut into it. Enjoy!

Nature Walk

I am currently on vacation so the next post will occur when I have inspiration or get back. This video is about a nature walk and shows a river flowing that has eroded the land for many years. It is kind of nice and peaceful.
The next video is a 360 degree view inside the basin.
This video is about Jared walking through the river.
Viewing a waterfall under rocks.
Looking over a bridge down at the river and pathway below.
Looking at the bridge from the bottom up.
Looking at the river while walking down a walkway. There were swimmers in the water which is hard to see from the video.
I hope you enjoyed my walk!

Crypto Market Update 3

Image
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.

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 out and gain so…
