Bitcoin Crash Over, Bitcoin Revolution On

Image
  Welcome to the Bitcoin Revolution where there is never a dull moment. This story contains my newest crypto market update. From DOGE to BTC, here is where I think we are headed in the short term. You all read the headlines about how Elon Musk, the super villain has been meddling in the crypto markets. He keeps pumping DOGE which is not good for the crypto community. People are attracted to Dogecoin because it has a low price and quick gains. Fundamentally, it is not a secure coin compared to Bitcoin and does not have the network effect. Some idiot bought DOGE will his credit card and made money. This is not a smart idea as he could have lost his entire life savings. If I owed DOGE, I would say to sell it and buy BTC to preserve wealth. My mailman just loaded up on DOGE which makes me think it's done. If you don't see the sucker, you are the sucker. Most alt coins don't stay in the Top 10 for long. Musk also posted on Twitter how he thinks Bitcoin is bad for the environment

Crypto Death Spiral Incoming

Image
The crypto bull run has been a free ride, 2021 experienced the greatest bubble so far, how long will this last? This current trend seems difficult to understand, and different from other times, a bunch of people live in disbelief of this new phase. A lot of manipulations seem to be happening in the markets, the stock price is influenced, the crypto prices look like a rising bubble. The pump and dumps cause investors to think the stock market is being rigged. Technically, the stock market should function according to supply and demand, but there are some disadvantages for retail investors. Some bad hedge funds are manipulating the stock market by creating shares from thin air using naked shorts, attempting to bankrupt good companies. What Solutions Do We Have For The Financial Markets? There is a need for an awakening in the US markets, when the fundamentals adjust to the new reality, we will see a financial meltdown similar or worse to the financial crisis of 2008. Many experts have

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

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. This data is thanks to - Sifrdata 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 some positive momentum right now. I ac

Should Traditional Finance Surrender To Bitcoin?

Image
I used to work in the “Bad Finance” industry. And then I left. Why because in my opinion, traditional finance is deeply unconscious. Firms operate solely for the profit motive. Anything that opposes them is something to be destroyed. At the end of college, I started YouBux.com a personal finance portal for young people to help them make better financial decisions that they will live with for the rest of their lives. Interestingly, the verdict from the startup was that people didn’t care enough to make changes. They weren’t in enough pain to make the switch to a more prudent personal financial plan. If I had known about Bitcoin back then, I probably would have focused on it. Today, the movement against traditional finance or what I would call “Bad Finance” is back in full swing. See traditional finance has caused more problems for humanity than it has solved. It has enriched 1/7th of the world at the expense of 6/7ths. To me that doesn’t seem fair. Luckily, now there is an altern

How To Increase The Price Of BCH

Summer 2018 Crypto Markets: Why This Year Could Be Different

Image
The cryptocurrency market has come roaring back, and if this trend continues, it looks like BTC could be back on its way to 10k in a matter of weeks— a rising tide that will lift other crypto boats. Many who kept the faith during these bearish past few months have pointed out that the cryptocurrency market follows an annual cycle that goes something like this: Things start off strong in January, followed by a significant correction. Bearish trend remains until late spring, giving way to a smaller bullish uptick, followed by a flattening off in the summer months. Starting in September, prices begin to rise again, culminating in a bull market every year in November and December. There are numerous theories as to why this pattern has repeated in recent years, ranging from family discussions of cryptocurrencies at the Thanksgiving table spurring huge November buy-ins across the US, to the Chinese New Year in late winter/early spring, which is associated with sell-offs across Asia by

Why You Should Surrender to Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

Image
The Bitcoin (BTC) vs Bitcoin Cash (BCH) has been raging since last summer. While BTC continues to get more media attention, things could change very soon (as I’m sitting here typing this, BCH is up 13%). Today I’m going to give you 3 good reasons why you WILL regret ignoring BCH— and, no transaction speed isn’t one of them. Look, it’s already been established that Bitcoin Cash is superior to BTC for use as an everyday currency. The transaction speeds are incomparable, and with the upgrade to 32MB blocks coming in May, it’s only going to get better. There simply is no debate anymore; despite all the hype surrounding the Lightening Network, BTC still has not caught up to BCH in terms of practicality as a digital currency. The transaction speed war is over, and Bitcoin Cash won. Now that we’ve got that out of the way, there are 3 more reasons why you should not be sleeping on BCH: Memo.cash Now this is an interesting one… Memo  is basically a blockchain-based social media pl

Puerto Rico, Taxes, and a Bitcoin Utopia

Image
It’s tax time, and many Americans are waking up to the harsh reality of the gains on their crypto trades. The process is complicated, confusing, and costly. Everything from bitcoin purchases to airdrops are subject to capital gains tax, and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is lighting a fire under holders to collect what is owed. In November , federal regulators ordered Coinbase to release records of users that had more than $20,000 in transactions between 2013-2015, impacting more than 14,000 traders. It is no wonder crypto traders are looking for alternatives. One group of crypto entrepreneurs, led by Brock Pierce of the Bitcoin Foundation, headed to Puerto Rico to escape some of the tax drama of the mainland. Their plan? To build a crypto-utopia. And the process has already begun. Currently, the group, which they’ve named Sol, has already started the process of searching for properties on the island. “The Monastery,” a 20,000 square foot hotel the group has rented o

Is this Bitcoin Rally Just a False Flag?

Image
The world was taken by surprise this past week when BTC surged above $8000 for the first time in weeks. On 4/12/18, BTC shot up an incredible $1000 in only 30 minutes, one of the fastest price increases ever recorded in such a timeframe. Currently, the price hovers just under 8k, and the crypto space is on fire with speculation that the long bear market is finally over. But are we really out of the woods? Let’s examine what may have caused this recent spike, and determine whether it’s time to pop the champagne and celebrate, or if this all just a mirage before yet another drop. First, what happened on 4/12? There are a couple different theories about what triggered this. In no particular order, they include: Institutional money getting in on the game: world renowned firms like Soros Fund Management have announced this past week that it will begin trading cryptocurrencies, in spite of Soros himself dismissing cryptocurrencies are recently as January. Venrock (the venture ca

The Bitcoin Chain Death Cycle In 2018

Image
Chain Death Cryptocurrencies have struggled to gain their footing in 2018 following a barrage of regulatory concerns, hacks, and high-profile scams. While many headlines suggest that this is the beginning of the end for cryptos, the tremendous amount of institutional wealth flowing into the space suggests otherwise. It may get much worse though, before it gets better. Still, it is important for any investor to recognize the hurdles ahead. Many cryptocurrencies, including King Bitcoin, still face blockchain destroying vulnerabilities. While the recent additions of the Lightning Network and SegWit removed some of the most daunting concerns of a potential ‘Chain Death,’ the threat still exists, and it’s more than just Bitcoin at risk. Bitcoin vs. Bitcoin Cash Last year’s Chain Death Spiral fears stemmed from the battle between Bitcoin and the Bitcoin Cash hard fork / airdrop. Following the August fork, miners migrated between the two coins, testing the profitability of each.

Why America Can’t Regulate Bitcoin Review

Image
I recently read an article titled “Why America Can’t Regulate Bitcoin”. It literally blew my mind. I will provide a brief summary of the contents but the reader should read the entire article to understand just how accurate the author is - https://twitter.com/Beautyon_ and how much diligence and research into case law was performed. Basically, the reason you can’t regulate Bitcoin is because it is hexadecimal code which is just text. This code and the blockchain can be printed on paper, if desired. The text is protected by Freedom of Speech in the US Constitution. In order to regulate Bitcoin you have to remove the First Amendment. This article references case law which was proven in courts in the United States that Bitcoin is not money and judges had to throw out money laundering cases using Bitcoin because it’s not money. At some point soon we may see exchanges denominate Bitcoin as zero dollars since it is not money. Read the full article here - https://hackernoon.com/w

What Is My Bitcoin Net Worth?

Image
There is an ongoing debate about Bitcoin and its utility value. The answer to the question “What is my Bitcoin net worth” is ZERO because I don’t own Bitcoin (BTC). I’m a big proponent for Bitcoin Cash (BCH). If you like friction, buy Bitcoin (BTC). Google “Bitcoin High Fee Coin” and you will get tons of information. There is not enough time for that discussion in this article. Also, view this link for a great comparison of Bitcoin Legacy vs Bitcoin Cash: https://www.yours.org/content/two-videos-anyone-interested-in-bitcoin-and-bitcoin-d0377afd806a I like Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and EOS (EOS) because I believe they enable freedom, equality and world peace. Although today BCH may not have as many network effects as Bitcoin (BTC), it is growing fast in all regards. Not to mention Dr. Craig Wright has publicly stated that Bitcoin Cash is patenting everything. In a perfect open world, patents may not be ideal but if it is nChain that owns the patents versus a big bank, I sleep well kno
