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: 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’t work like cash at all?” - So we de…

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…

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 alternative…

How To Increase The Price Of BCH

Image
Based on 9 years of research and development as a Search Engine Optimization expert, I know (BCH) needs additional marketing to create price stability. I’ve been doing marketing for the Crypto Industry unpaid since 2014 in many forms. BCH is currently at a critical juncture to benefit from price stability.

I have the tools to enable more value creation through marketing but I will need larger marketing budgets from you, my readers. If you value the BCH price or general crypto holding prices for that matter, please contribute to my projects to encourage price stability.

I have owned Web Marketing LLC, an SEO Agency since 2010. If you need additional proof that I will do as directed, visit my company website: http://www.StrategiesSEO.com/ and my Crypto Blog: https://www.jaredschlar.com/ I also hold a Finance degree from Northeastern University in Boston.

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 mi…

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:

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 out, acts …

Crypto Market Update

Image
In my best estimate, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) is going down in the short term. Some traders online are saying that the BTC price will hit $8000 once again. I’m waiting for more deals to appear before making new moves.

Some facts that are true regarding crypto right now are that social media companies are censoring posts related to crypto. As I mentioned in a previous post, some of the 2017 crypto growth is attributed to social media related to crypto. If censorship by major media continues, it will be harder to educate new users about crypto using these channels and onboard them. Another major marketing point which attracts new users is increases in the price of cryptocurrencies as highlighted by the news. If the price does not move up quickly, then this marketing bullet simply does not work.

Also, since Coinbase was forced to stop allowing credit card transactions, new gateways and onramps to crypto have slowed down. If you would like to know my opinion on new value drivers for cr…

What is the Next Value Driver for Crypto in 2018?

Image
What I'm looking for is the next big driver of value to the crypto markets. In 2017, we had credit cards and social media. What I'm trying to figure out is what will the 2018 killer value app be for crypto? What can we do to increase adoption to the crypto markets? My goal is to find direct ways to contribute. For example, I have a crypto blog which you can read for free.

Some drivers of value to Crypto in 2018 include:
Working decentralized marketplaces for physical and digital goods to disintermediate from middlemen. Inter-blockchain communication.Killer deployment tools. (DEX) Decentralized Exchanges. I've used https://token.store and it works wonderfully for ETH tokens. The UI is quite intuitive. The exchange doesn't hold your private key. More gateways (on ramps).More smart contracts on Ethereum and other networks.  Please add any additional ideas to this list by tweeting me. https://twitter.com/jaredsc Thank you.

NEO – The Altcoin That Surged Despite the Chinese ICO Ban

Image
NEO also known as Chinese Ethereum is expected to benefit in the long run due to rules being implemented by the Chinese authorities with respect to ICOs. This is due to the fact that NEO already adheres to rules proposed by Chinese regulatory authorities. As such, many are considering NEO, the first public blockchain of China to transform into one of the leading digital platforms in the country.

After the Chinese regulatory announcement the Altcoin did take a tumble and reached its lowest point of around $13.29 by the end of September from its top level of $48 with a network cap beyond the threshold of $2.5 billion (way back in August).

However, steady trading volume has helped the coin recover and reach value of $26 (in the initial period of October), which is actually a hundred percent rise from the lowest point it reached after the PBoc ruling about ban on ICOs.

Segwit2x Fork - Market Protection

Image
It is my understanding that the Bitcoin Segwit2x (B2X) still has a small probability of happening. This is because a faction of miners still believes in it despite the major market players calling it cancelled. This would enable protection for Bitcoin (BTC) owners who are susceptible to chain spiral of death due to Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Since BTC has no Emergency Difficulty Adjustment, if there is another crazy spike in Bitcoin Cash (BCH), which in my opinion is likely, all buyers of Bitcoin (BTC) after the August 1 Bitcoin Cash (BCH) fork have no protection. This is a big deal because many people new to Bitcoin (BTC) may have invested large sums of money with no understanding that it could go to zero.

We will see if this hard fork occurs around tomorrow or not. It is very exciting times to be involved in crypto currencies. It’s probably a good idea to have at least some exposure to Bitcoin Cash (BCH) to ensure that you have some diversification in the event of another black swan. In t…

Bitcoin Cash Will 3X My Investment

Image
Based on recent news I am more bullish on Bitcoin Cash than ever before. Just recently the CME chairman announced that Bitcoin futures will be listed as early as next month. According to a prominent crypto VC, this news signifies that Bitcoin will be able to be shorted. This is a large problem if you have (BTC) because Wall Street and Crypto Valley are not yet on the same page. I can envision large market forces attempting to damage (BTC).

Luckily, if you have Bitcoin Cash (BCH), this is not a problem. Some of the same forces that short (BTC) may actually long (BCH) which may result in another huge pump. Roger Ver is likely transitioning more of his 300,000 BTC into Bitcoin Cash. Keep in mind Bitcoin Cash has only been live since August 1st 2017 and has already bulged to the second highest network cap in crypto. This is not by error.

Additionally, Mike Novogratz has been buying Bitcoin over the weekend. He is likely responsible for the uptick in price as his firm bought $15-$20 Milli…

There Are Only Two Cryptos That Matter Right Now by Jared Schlar

Image
In my opinion after extensive research I have determined that only two crypto coins or tokens matter until after the Segwit hard fork. This article was previously behind a paywall and is now free.

In my paid content you can discover my rationale for this including extensive research I conduct daily. This article is paid and I hope it provides a large value to readers with new insights. My background as a Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Analyst helps me understand indicators about the crypto world that are hard to quantify without the same training.


#1 Bitcoin

#2 Bitcoin Cash

When the Bitcoin Cash fork happened people would borrow Bitcoin on margin at crazy interest rates just to get exposure to the fork. There is now and I anticipate more until the BTC fork, a rush to accumulate new BTC to get a sort of dividend after the BTC fork. What the exact split ratio will be, I don’t think anyone is totally sure at this point. The powers that be have a huge incentive to make the fork come ou…
