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 …

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.

The Positive NEO Trends

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…

Bitcoin Cash — 100 stories, 100 opinions, 100 pro and cons

What is this coin ? A useless forked Bitcoin ? Or maybe it is the “real” Bitcoin ? Or just an altcoin which is going to die ? Who knows, but….

…..on the one hand Bitcoin Cash is controversial since the first day it was mentioned leading to a big argue between the two camps until now, on the other hand it has some different technical aspects. This is what the most people know about Bitcoin Cash, this is, lets say in the “light” at the moment.

But in the shadow of Bitcoin Cash something is going on that i want to share with you and i think the time is now to take a closer look at Bitcoin Cash.

LendingClub  - The Fast Growth FinTech You Didn’t See Coming

Image
LendingClub (LC) has become a boon for borrowers as well as investors and has turned into a viable option in comparison to loans from banks. Let us look at reasons behind its fast growth. In the early days I used to get 20%+ returns annually from trading LendingClub notes. That rate of return has fallen but I still believe in LendingClub.com. I even still have the monthly statements to prove it. Also, LendingClub has extremely powerful network effects.

LendingClub and Its Utility for Borrowers and Investors
LendingClub is operating a unique credit marketplace which allows peer to peer lending as well as investing. Due to machine learning, crowd consensus and other mechanisms, LendingClub typically provides lower rates in comparison to what banks offer. For instance, in a recent interview with Bloomberg, LendingClub CEO Scott Sanborn states that customers save on average 24% interest, when borrowing with LendingClub.
