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

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…

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…

What are the Main Drivers Behind Positive Bitcoin Cash Movement?

Bitcoin Cash (BCH aka BCC) has been the focus of discussion for many cryptocurrency experts and there are valid reasons for such inquiry. Bitcoin Cash is experiencing significant growth and moving in the right direction right from when the main Bitcoin blockchain hard forked. Let us go through details of how it is performing and also check the reasons which are fueling such positive movement.

Rising Bitcoin Cash Prices
Yesterday, there has been over 18% improvement in exchange rate (BCH/USD) from the low to the high, helping Bitcoin Cash attain $550.00 level with a network cap of about $9.1 billion. As such, it has reached the top 3rd position of cryptocurrencies by their network cap. I use network cap rather then market cap because it is not an equity and does not have earnings.

What is causing the price rise for Bitcoin Cash?
There are several reasons for such a price rise, let us look at them here:
The most important reason is that there has been a surge in trading volume taking plac…
