The SEC Was Born in the '30s and Still Thinks Like Confused Dinosaur


when the sec formed sometime around the 1930's, they were the "untouchables" is the investor space. security and fact checking for suckers and what we refer today as "nubes" or "newbies". but now it's 2018 and they're giving jay-z a tour pass to testify over a clothing matter, once he's done performing. let him grow his wealth from hard work committed, then dump it into the legality and taxes of it all. this is the scene of today. influenced by fat cats and responsible for the take downs of those not willing to play the game. 

being their an organization featuring five internal divisions and clearly have their hands full of bloody IPOs and brokers sleeping under desks, this is all truth laced blankets for their keeping away from cryptocurrency. Tech and finteh in general, still very foreign to the dinosaurs with ties on behind desks. they want in but their arms are too short. no reach means little understanding and sacrificing hell mary plays, rather than small ball. bunting. moving runners over to steal andvhustle the 90 feet.

the sec is, for now, is terrifyingly misinformed. the solutions to help call for backing off, stay traditional then gradually manage from afar as crypto learns to regulate it's own damn market. not that hard considering we regulate our own lives on the roads, streets and highways, right?

Dips Are Expected as The Slippery Hands of Regulation Pry



What can you do? As long as there are decentralized systems of digital currency, with transparency; the Feds and others are always want to try and figure out hw to take funds away from anyone not addicted to fiat, namely, the "almighty" USD. 

But as one coin dips, others rise. As seen recently with LiteCoin and ETH. As well as some of the smaller altcoins. But there's no question, they seem to help one another. When the chip are down, they all dip save a few of theirs altcoins like XRP and DASH. But when the majors rise, they tend to all follow along for the ride. 

Possibly due to the affects of regulation global gatherings, of politicians and financial experts trying to make heads or tails of it all, crypto markets dip. But the next day, when entities announce the introduction of crypto portfolios ad it seems as though people "get it", it jumps. 

Ironically, the Cryptocurrency Market, as volatile as it may be at times, is so far proving more consistent and transparent than traditional Wall Street. And despite occasional hacks and scams, overall it feels less sharky and corrupt than Wall Street. 

At the end of the day, the United States in particular, seems not to take kindly to those who utilize anything other than the USD. This is proven is our soured foreign relations with nations wanting to veer way from the dollar. Eventually, and hopefully in the near future, as blockchain technology makes more of as splash, the Feds will back off and recognize, as some Asians markets have, that for a vast number of citizens, this is often their only way to invest.

True Reply: An ICO That Makes Sense

‭‬


There are a ton of ICO's these days. And rightfully so. If a company wants to get going, it makes sense to seek support from the crypto community.

True Reply, or TrueCoin, is a very useful coin. One takes surveys and interacts with questionnaires and are rewarded. This is huge for medical-related surveys and trials.

March 2018: The Bitcoin Strikes Bakc (that was intentional)



As of writing this, much to everyone’s delight, Bitcoin has, once again, hit and surpassed the $11k (USD) mark. The strengthens of other nations getting privy to the decentralized digital currency markets; and the undying fascination coupled with the once seemingly demented war cries, “HODL”, have clearly had an effect. 

Etherium has been steady in the $850-$950 realm and Litecoin seems to be experiencing some grit nh osuna all over again as it bounces around $220-$300. The altcoin market has also seen some highs and lows, with most of its rise occurring literally, over night in the wee hours. 

The Pineapple Fund  which was formed anonymously, has seen its funds grow to new heights. The founder initiated things by paying it forward with $84M in Bitcoin. The fund has helped many and is a fantastic poster for wyst can be accomplished with cryptocurrency. 

Hodl indeed. Rumor has it, Bitcoin will soar to ridiculous heights come Summer time. The flames are getting crazy hot and the time has never been better to jump in.

BlockMason (BCPT) Finds Its Crypto Sweet Spot



When BlockMason launched its utility token in the Fall of 2017, it initially sold for roughly .20-.40 cents; and as of writing this, it’s on the charts for about .67. But, with BlockMason’s BCPT utility tokens, it’s not so much its value that makes it a hot investment/commodity, it’s the technology and system behind it. 

 

Cryptocurrency credit and debt has remained uncharted territory until BlockMason and its Credit Protocol came on the scene. The Credit Protocol basically utilizes Ethereum’s blockchain system to log credit and debt. Other decentralized apps (dapps) can build upon this protocol, to keep records as well; and BlockMason themselves have completed beta testing for Lndr. Lndr, like Friend in Debt and GiftChain, are dapps from BlockMason which utilize the Credit Protocol. Lndr and Friend in Debt serve as digital IOUs for peer-to-peer matters, keeping record of who owes what and in what currency, on Blockchain. Once paid, this too is noted. GiftChain is a BlockMason created dapp where gift cards can be purchased and rewarded to users and managed on the Credit Protocol/Blockchain. 

 

The crypto market is starting to take notice of this young utility token. And as it solely continues to provide credit and debt services to the cryptocurrency market, its value will continue to rise. Its initial token sale caught a lot of attention and now entities are scrambling for ways to adopt BlockMason’s monster. 

 

Another reason for PCBT’s early success is its utility token does precisely what it was created to do. In other words, the token is clear in both mission and goal. As we enter the new year, dapps will become more commonplace. Cryptokitties is a dapp offering users the opportunity to care for a virtual pet cat. One can buy into more features (to allow ultra-customization) and already high-priced kitties can be found online. The kitties and their upgrades are all paid for with cryptocurrency. Decentralized apps like these are paving the way for others to follow. 

 

Essentially, this notion of keeping transparent records of credit, debt and loans is one best suited for the likes of Blockchain. And if we can see who borrowed and from whom, the future for credit, as well as personal and business loan industries, is very bright.

XRP Ripple: 100% Hype-Worthy



The coin which was valued at .24 to start the month of December, 2017, has gone up in flames so much, it was for 48 hours the hottest cryptocurrency on the planet! Ripple which has slowly but surely rising in the charts, was sold for $2.10 yesterday (12.29.17) morning. Its rise was close to 2000%. 

Rumors are floating around Coinbase may introduce it to its exchange. And why not? Seeing how 2017 wound up being the rise of the altcoin, with Litecoin reaching and passing $300, it would only make sense as the year draws to a close, Ripple jumps. Its partnership with SBI Holdings in the Asian market, centralized blockchain system and potential for huge growth make it now one of the most sought after cryptocurrrencies. Most predict 2018 to be the year it reaches $10. Even $20! 

Ripple is utilized by numerous banks in Japan and throughout Asia. They also have a strong team of support featuring digital media giants. 

While Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin continue to dance around the $13-high $14k, $600-$800 and $209-$400 ranges respectively, Ripple has been consistent in its growth. 

Open an account with Binance. Transfer ETR or BTC to it and get your share of Ripple (XRP) while they’re hot! You’ll thank yourself later.

Bitcoin Takes Big Dive, Everyone Loses Their Mind



It’s true: today was not a good day for the cryptocurrency market. In fact, it’d seem after only a week of accolades and bubbly popping, a lot of bandwagon investors are sad and selling. A lot of selling happening. 

Consequently, the other majors such as Ethereum and Litecoin have also plummeted. Ether in particular was riding hugh and almost at $1K, yet, couldn’t hit it. Same for Bitcoin: almost at $20K, but couldn’t smack it. So close, yet so far and now, really far. 

But, this is what it’s always been like been a crypto investor. The charts work with you one day, then flip dip the next. While futures and investment portfolios going crypto may have a part in the fall, this is nothing to worry about. It’s what will tell the investors from the crypto investors apart. And as BTC hits $20K, it might be too late to return.

Bitcoin Dips Then Jumps as Ether and Lite Rise


Bitcoin is flirting with $20K, making the rise look easy. The flames are getting higher as other altcoin like Ethereum and LiteCoin jump too! As of writing this, Ether is up to $686 and Lite is $303. Everyone has been waiting for the others to hop and now they are! Bitcoin, as of writing this, snuggles up to $17,642 after dipping back to $14K at one point at the top of this past week.

It seems as though BTC has taken a liking to jumping at night. Early evening through the late night, is the best time to watch the activity. Again, what's putting smiles on investors' faces right now, are the jumps from Ether and Lite. For the first time in a while, the big three are jumping hot flames all together. Not see-saw as it has been.

Keep an eye on Ripple and Monero, as well as Bitcoin Cash and Dash. Dash, incidentally, sits pretty at $892. It's happening all over the place: flames rising, coins and tokens jumping! The charts are hopping!

Bitcoin Close to $14.5K



So, what do you say to those who suspected Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency fire of being a bubble, as BTC approaches $15K? Right now, Bitcoin has risen to $14,160. Anyone who’s anyone is buying in. Excellent. This will prove eventually, a digital and transparent system of exchange is possible and exists—it does exist, but soon, again thanks to Blockchain, this system of transparent exchange free of meddling, will bust out beyond the niche of digital currency. 



Bitfinex’s book, pictures above, is either super slow to the take or Bitcoin literally jumped $150 in three minutes. Hey, it’s possible. Bitcoin is literally smashing the charts and reaching for a value greater than your average hedge fund manager can wrap their head around. And that’s the best part about Bitcoin and altcoin: no one really knows what’s going to happen, what’s happening, or what happened. It just is. And because folks seem unable to wrap their heads around these concepts, because it’s “so completely foreign”, it’s “got to be a bubble”. No. It doesn’t.

24 Hours Later, Bitcoin Jumps Again



Yesterday, writing about Bitcoin approaching $12K means nothing as this morning it soars towards $13K. That’s right, within 24 hours, Bitcoin is jumping another thousand. Will Bitcoin rock the charts to $20K before the new year? What will the beginning of 2018 look like in the cryptocurrency market? 

While Bitcoin continues to catch fire, Ether and LiteCoin remain the same. Eventually, we can look to the other altcoins to soar, but for now, all eyes are on Bitcoin. Yes, Monero and Ripple are both jumping somewhat. If anything, what’s happening now as investors realize the coins themselves are worth the hunt rather than ICOs, the lesser known altcoins are catching fire. And why not? After all, these coins have been here for a while too and if Bitcoin is too rich for crypto investors, look elsewhere. It all will jump. It’s jumping as I type. 

Taking Ether to purchase altcoins to sit on, is a great way to get involved and enter the fire. Check the charts. Get Coinbase and have fun! Now’s the time!

Bitcoin Can't and Won't Stop Nears $12K



The above image is something we'll soon see practically everywhere. And why not? Bitcoin, as I type, is valued at 1 BTC = $11,759 USD. Ethereum sits at $459 while LiteCoin stays steady at $101. LiteCoin has, throughout the greater part of 2017, sat in the $40-$70 neighborhood. It, like Ether, has enjoyed the last quarter of this year and Bitcoin's rise. The flames of the fire have roared since the latter part of Autumn. The hype is real. The fire isn't going out despite hypotheticals and opinion from some economists, Wall Street and other "bubble worriers". Analysts are on television daily, discussing Bitcoin. Minds are being blown and educated. Those who weren't knowledgeable, are now.

The chart is burning! The spikes are insane! Folks are still trying to wrap their heads around the last fork and fork cancellation, Bitcoin Gold and Cash. Bitcoin Cash, as of typing this, is at a pretty $1413K! What a year. What news for the world of cryptocurrency. We aren't that far removed from the start of all of this. And as we see cities figuring out how to get digitized and in bed with technology lead infrastructure, major institutions offering crypto in portfolios and the Feds also trying to figure out what to do with the Internet and Bitcoin--the writing is on the wall.

Let's face it: Blockchain is what this is all about. It's the future of peer-to-peer transactions. It's a baby right now, despite it's age. Meaning, this system will truly be adopted by everything and everyone eventually. When we examine the success of Bitcoin, we'd be remiss to not realize it's all about the Blockchain. And once its systems of security are 100% on point, and exchanges and wallets follow suit, nothing will beat it.

Right now, there's only one thing and one thing only that can bring Bitcoin and the world of cryptocurrency down: terrorism, namely Isis/Isil. If any acts of terror are found to have been funded by any altcoins, the flames will be put out. As far as anyone knows, this has yet to happen. Once again, because of Blockchain, we're able to see where every Bitcoin is and how it's used. Every bit of Bitcoin, literally, is on the virtual ledger and can't be tampered with. If one funds a heinous act or purchases something illegally with Bitcoin, it's noted. The buyer and seller are logged. Neither party can edit or change this.

Bitcoin knows no bubble. Bitcoin is on the rise. It's all on the rise frankly. Even Monero and Ripple! Jump in the fire--any time is a good time.
