5  Bitcoin / Press / [2018-07-12] Bitcoin Futures Volume Spike As Cboe Awaits ETF Decision on: July 13, 2018, 12:04:18 AM

Everyone knows that bitcoin and cryptocurrency prices have been on a steady decline since the last month of 2017. While digital asset spot prices have been quite volatile, bitcoin futures products provided by two of the world’s largest derivatives exchanges, Cboe and CME Group, have seen a steady increase in trade volume and more liquidity within these markets. Furthermore, Cboe is hoping to launch a bitcoin-based exchange-traded-fund (ETF) and the US Securities Exchange Commission will decide on the fate of this new product on August 10.

While Spot Prices Decline Bitcoin-Based Futures Contracts Have Been Steadily Increasing

Cryptocurrency spot prices have been in a slump over the past two quarters of 2018 but rumor on the street is institutional interest in cryptocurrency custody and regulated investment vehicles is picking up speed. Even though market sentiment has been bearish, futures contracts sold by Cboe and CME Group have increased significantly during the second quarter of 2018. Right now, on July 12, there have been 1199 contracts filled so far and products for the month of August are adding up today as well. Cboe has been selling between 2500-18,000 bitcoin futures contracts per day.

Will this certainly help bitcoin price spike in upcoming days?
6  Bitcoin / Press / [2018-06-15] Cryptocurrency Games Have Invaded the Most Popular App Stores on: June 15, 2018, 06:11:37 PM
Have you ever wanted to try testing your luck in the cryptocurrency markets, but don’t want to lose real money? Or maybe you’ve contemplated creating a mining empire, but only have enough coin in the bank for a couple measly machines. Well, now people with some imagination and a love for games can find a wide array of gaming apps at Apple’s App Store and Google Play. Not too long ago, there were only one or two cryptocurrency related games like Bitcoin Millionaire on the app stores, but nowadays there’s a ton of different recreational apps where you can do various bitcoin-related things, and some of them even pay out a few cents in crypto if you play them long enough.

Bitcoin Mining Simulator
One fun game called Bitcoin Mining Simulator (BMS) allows you to become a bitcoin mining tycoon. Basically, the mining simulator allows you to purchase virtual rigs in order to mine bitcoins and profit from selling them at market value. The game starts with a few simple machines until you can get enough coins to purchase your own mega farm. Essentially the game created by the developer Aliaksandr Prakarym allows the player to continuously improve the farm in order to get a return on the investment (ROI). The BMS app is also available on both iOS and Google Play.

What is your thoughts on it?

How it would be when we have a physical bitcoin currency note? Do they already exist? If created, will it impact the market growth and loose it's value in the market?  Any thoughts?
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / Existing coins or ICOs? Where will you invest? on: May 03, 2018, 11:16:56 PM
Which one will you prefer or best to invest? Coins with high rates like bitcoin, BCH, ETH and etc or coins with cheap rated below $1 or in ICO token?

I find its worth investing 70 percent of my capital into ICOs which do have good projects and good teams as well. And invest the rest 30 percentage in top listed coins which are high in rates.

What will you advice?
9  Bitcoin / Press / [2018-05-03] Darknet Markets: Learning How to Get There is Half the Battle on: May 03, 2018, 11:02:55 PM
So you’ve recently heard about a place called the Deep Web, and the underground darknet markets (DNM) that reside there offering narcotics like cannabis online. Using these websites and the wares these markets sell may be illegal in your country, so learning to take the necessary precautions before visiting a DNM is an absolute must. Educating yourself on the basics of operations security (Opsec) is a great idea before exploring the depths of DNMs found on the invisible web.

Learn the Very Basics of Deep Web Opsec Before Visiting a Darknet Market
Just recently, reported on the top DNMs out there – like the Dream Market, Wall Street, and Point Marketplace places which are entrenched in code within the confines of the deep web. Now maybe you have heard about these places before, but it’s always good to learn the very basic Opsec techniques that are highly recommended before purchasing something, or even entering a darknet market.

A Browser That Crawls the Deep Web is Required

The first and foremost thing to learn is you can’t find DNMs using a Google browser. Only a deep web indexing browser like Tor can get you to those special destinations. Tor is a free browser that enables a level of anonymous communication by concealing every Tor user’s identity under an overlay network of relay nodes. Tor also allows users to access the deep web and .onion addresses. Basically, a .onion is just a domain suffix, which is tethered to a hidden website found only on the invisible web. Downloading and using a deep web browser like Tor to access any DNM is required.

An IT personality would have to go through the above. You thought on this precautions?
10  Bitcoin / Press / [2018-05-03] Meitu Founder Announces Accumulation of 10,000 Bitcoins in 2018 on: May 03, 2018, 09:48:50 PM
Cai Wensheng, the founder of Meitu Inc., a Chinese technology company that makes smartphones and selfie apps, has announced that his bitcoin holdings have reached a personal milestone of 10,000 BTC. Mr. Wensheng also discussed his investments in alternative cryptocurrencies, and compared the present state of the cryptocurrency sector to that of the internet of the early 2000s.

Meitu Founder Accumulates Approximately 10,000 in 2018
Meitu Founder Accumulates 10,000 Bitcoins in 2018 Bear SeasonIn a recent interview with entrepreneur Wang Feng, Mr. Wensheng revealed that his goal of owning 10,000 BTC had been achieved following extensive accumulation during the bear trend of 2018. “When I clearly saw the future of blockchain and bitcoin, I set a goal for myself – owning 10,000 bitcoins, and now the goal has been achieved,” he said.

Mr. Wensheng claimed that “Back in this January I only had several bitcoins, just to follow the trend.” Mr. Wensheng states that he then “realized that blockchain and bitcoin are the future,” leading to the entrepreneur to “set the goal of accumulating 10,000 bitcoins.”

Despite being enticed by the meteoric gains made by the bitcoin markets in 2017, Mr. Wensheng patiently waited for the markets to retrace. “Last December saw the great spike and I didn’t buy any bitcoin at that time. Later when the price corrected to normal in January, I began the career by buying in bitcoins at low cost,” he recounted.

Huge accumulation achieved by his target. Your thoughts on it?
11  Bitcoin / Press / [2018-05-02]- South Korean Lawmakers Draft Bill to Legalize Some Initial Coin Of on: May 02, 2018, 09:07:37 PM
A group of South Korean lawmakers is working on a bill to legalize initial coin offerings (ICOs), providing they meet certain conditions under the supervision of the government. Meanwhile, the current ICO ban in the country has driven many domestic corporations to raise capital overseas.

Rep. Hong Eui-rak of the South Korean ruling Democratic Party “is leading the move championed by 10 other lawmakers” to legalize ICOs, the Korea Times reported. “They are working to have a bill backing the move endorsed this year.”

During the ICO and blockchain technology forum at the National Assembly on Wednesday, Hong said that “the bill was based on a joint study by his office and the Korea International Trade Association (KITA),” according to the publication. “This is the first parliamentary challenge to the government’s ban on domestic initial coin offerings imposed late last year to cool speculative investment in digital currencies such as bitcoin.” The news outlet then quoted Hong saying: The bill is aimed at legalizing ICOs under the government’s supervision.                       

A good move from South Korea?                                                                                                                 
12  Bitcoin / Press / [2018-05-02] Interest in Cryptocurrency - Revenues up 284% on: May 02, 2018, 08:17:38 PM
Interest in Cryptocurrency Derivatives Drives CFD Marketplace’s Revenues up 284%

Derivatives trading platform provider Plus500 posted a 284% increase in revenues in the first quarter of this year compared to the previous year, largely due to high levels of interest in its cryptocurrency CFDs offerings.

On Tuesday, contracts for difference (CFDs) market provider Plus500 released its quarterly earnings for the three months ended March 31. “Q1 2018 revenues were $297.3m, an increase of 284% compared to the same period last year,” the company revealed, adding:

"The very strong start to the year…resulted from a period of relatively volatile markets and high levels of interest in the company’s cryptocurrency CFDs offering, and in turn encouraged high levels of new customer sign ups and record trading in Q1 2018."

A good start right?
13  Bitcoin / Press / [2018-05-01] Coinbase Valuation Jumps from $1.6 Billion to as High as $8 Billion on: May 01, 2018, 09:03:17 PM

The meteoric price rally by bitcoin in 2017 has made a lot of people very rich, and perhaps no one more than the owners of the trading venues themselves. Coinbase, which was valued at around $1.6 billion less than a year ago, is now priced at $8 billion by its investors. 

The $8 Billion Unicorn

Coinbase Valuation Jumps From $1.6 Billion to as High as $8 BillionSan Francisco-based cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase has reportedly seen its market valuation skyrocket to as high as $8 billion. To help put this figure into perspective, Nasdaq Inc., which operates the NASDAQ market and eight European stock exchanges, only has a market cap of less than $15 billion.

Last summer, before the bitcoin trading mania reached its peak around the end of 2017, Coinbase was priced by VC investors at an approximated $1.6 billion. Unsurprisingly, the incredible revenues that period, when the price of bitcoin was at its height, brought to cryptocurrency exchanges across the world made their owners reevaluate such low previous offers, as was recently reported in the case of Binance.

A massive growth in its value. Crypto currencies do lifts up everyone?

SEC Official Criticizes State of ICO Industry, Open to Regulated Future

United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) commissioner, Robert Jackson, has expressed his belief that initial coin offerings (ICOs) will be legitimized under existing securities legislation. Despite the optimistic outlook, the commissioner has criticized the current state of the ICO industry.

SEC Commissioner Expects ICOs Have Legitimate Future

SEC Official Criticizes State of ICO Industry, Open to Regulated FutureIn an interview with CNBC, SEC commissioner, Robert Jackson, recently expressed cautious optimism regarding ICOs – predicting that initial coin offerings will be conformed to the rubric of existing securities regulations in future.

“Down the road, I think we will be thinking about ways to make those investments work consistent with our securities laws,” Robert Jackson said.

Your thoughts on Commissioner's decision.
17  Bitcoin / Press / [2018-04-25] $10K on Hold As Bitcoin Sees Price Pullback on: April 25, 2018, 10:19:05 PM
Having rallied more than 50 percent this month, bitcoin is now witnessing a pullback.

The cryptocurrency rose to $9,767 on Bitfinex earlier today - the highest level since March 12 - before falling back to $9,100. As of writing, bitcoin (BTC) is changing hands at $9,125.

The 6.8 percent drop from the intraday highs signals bullish exhaustion near the gradually ascending (bullish biased) 200-day moving average (MA) at $9,835. Furthermore, the 4-hour chart below shows scope for a deeper pullback ahead.

Hope the value starts growing up steadily like past few days?

18  Bitcoin / Press / [2018-02-25] - The Notorious Bunny Ranch Brothel Now Accepts Bitcoin on: April 25, 2018, 08:45:34 PM
According to the infamous licensed brothel in Nevada, the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, a sex worker named Lana West was paid for her intimate favors with a few thousand dollars in bitcoin. Since then the Bunny Ranch has announced accepting the digital currency for sexual services.

Lately a few escort business and sex workers have been revealing that they accept cryptocurrencies for sexual services. Now the well-known Bunny Ranch, a legal bordello owned by Dennis Hof is accepting bitcoin. The brothel’s location is in the state of Nevada, which allows legal prostitution as long as it is outside the jurisdiction of Las Vegas. The Bunny Ranch is a pretty popular destination on the outskirts of Carson City, and Dennis Hof and the brothel girls have been filmed on multiple occasions for the HBO documentary ‘Cathouse.’

Whats your thought on it?

19  Bitcoin / Press / [2018-04-26]- System Error at Korean Crypto Exchange Gave Users Free Coins on: April 25, 2018, 07:31:09 PM
A South Korean cryptocurrency exchange said it suffered an internal system error which affected withdrawals. The exchange claimed that users were able to withdraw five times the number of coins they requested. It is asking for the coins back, and will seek civil liabilities and damages from users who do not voluntarily return the coins.

Internal System Error

New South Korean exchange Cashierest reportedly caused a controversy on Friday when it claimed to have an internal system error which affected withdrawals, according to local media. The exchange, which was launched in March, said that the error allowed users to withdraw more than five times the coins requested. Meanwhile, some users are claiming that they could not withdraw any coins at all during that time.

Before pitching in, they might have gone through beta and alpha tests right?

What should have been done to avoid such major issues?
