1  Bitcoin / Press / [2017-12-29] From $900 to $20,000: Bitcoin's Historic 2017 Price Run Revisited on: December 29, 2017, 07:57:41 PM

The chart above says it all.

One year ago as of the time of writing, the price of bitcoin traded between $930 and $978 – movements that perhaps set the stage for the cryptocurrency's value to cross the $1,000 on New Year's Day. Indeed, that headline-making development would be the first of many to come for 2017.

In this article, we look at some of the major moments for bitcoin's price during the last 12 months, a period of time that saw the price of bitcoin climb from below $1,000 to nearly $20,000 on the CoinDesk Bitcoin Price Index (BPI).

It was a year that arguably exceeded last year's bullish predictions and one that saw unprecedented interest coming from places – particularly in the finance industry – that some may not have imagined possible just 12 months ago.

2  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Speculation (Altcoins) / [2017-12-29] Ripple Approaching $2 as XRP Price Doubles in Weekly Trading on: December 29, 2017, 07:48:00 PM
A week after the value of Ripple's native XRP token topped $1 for the first time in history, the cryptocurrency surged again today, rising 34 percent.

At press time, the token, used for transactions on the San Francisco startup's RippleNet cryptocurrency network, reached $1.87, a figure that was nearly double its listed price last week, data shows. The price rally arrived after a long period of inactivity in the market, which had held steady at $0.20 over the past six months.

As a result, the market capitalization of XRP is now catching up with those of ethereum and bitcoin, according to data site CoinMarketCap. XRP is now the third largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization, with the value of its combined token supply now $72 billion.

Headwinds or Tailwinds? How US Tax Reform Could Impact Bitcoin's Price

Since its inception in 2009, the price of bitcoin has risen sharply, climbing from zero to more than $2,900 earlier this month. However, the cryptocurrency has experienced this appreciation during a time of low interest rates and meager yields, a situation that could change in the coming years.

This period of ultra-low yields has lowered the opportunity cost associated with investing in bitcoin. While bitcoin's price has thrived in this environment, investors could find the cryptocurrency less attractive if interest rates and yields push higher.

Should yields, including dividend payments (regular payments made to stockholders for being owners of a company) increase, it could produce one more headwind for bitcoin's price by making dividend-paying stocks more appealing than the cryptocurrency. And all this seems to align with other challenges, such as the scaling issue, that the protocol is facing, which could also put downward pressure on the cryptocurrency's price.

London Blockchain Startup Launches Transparency Tool to Track Donations

U.K.-based blockchain philanthropy platform has launched a new social tool that allows charities to increase donations by illustrating to donors what impact their money provides. Considering the low trust and confidence the public have with how charities use their money, it’s hoped that Alice’s new tool will remove these barriers to donating.

Making use of smart contracts built on the Ethereum blockchain,, which is in honor of Alice who always seems to send money to Bob and si, which stands for ‘social impact,’ Alice works by freezing donations until charities can demonstrate that they have met their social goals. This then means that when donors give to a charity project on Alice, the donation is guaranteed to arrive at its destination where it will make an impact. If not, donors get their money back.

Norwegian Investor Sells off all Stocks to buy Bitcoin

The recent Bitcoin price increase is attracting a lot of new capital. That is not entirely surprising, as Bitcoin remains one of the most profitable investments people can make right now. Kristoffer Hansen, a well-known Norwegian investor, has seen the light as well. He converted all of his stocks shares and used the money to buy bitcoin. It is an interesting turn of events, albeit one that will become more common moving forward.

Why the Blockchain Needs More Failures to Succeed

In the world of startups, learning from failures is an inescapable reality, and part of the prevalent conventional wisdom. That is how the ecosystem and entrepreneurs move forward to greater heights, and with more successes.

But in the burgeoning blockchain segment, we haven’t seen that many failures yet. At least, not of the scale and variety required to extract long-lasting lessons for the entire industry. And certainly, not enough to warrant a call for an imminent crash or correction.

Failures are important because their sum results in a new body of knowledge that is rich with useful insights and best practices.

ChronoPay, one of Russia’s oldest online payments providers, is including bitcoin to its payment gateway, enabling all of its clients to accept the world’s most popular cryptocurrency.

“I have publicly criticized bitcoin in the past,” stated ChronoPay founder and chief executive Pavel Vrublevsky, in a phone call with CCN today. The former bitcoin skeptic, a controversial figure, has since changed his opinion on bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. “I apologize to everyone – I’ve changed my point of view radically,” he wrote in a public post today, after having “thoroughly studied the subject.”

We Plan To Open 5,000 Bitcoin ATMs in Europe in 2017: Bitlish

Bitcoin ATM provider Bitlish was the first to open a bonafide BTM in Russia, but it is its expansion plans that are likely to get the market talking.

Despite the growing presence of BTMs in Europe, usage is still limited.

Not inconsiderable fees, as well as a lack of general consumer understanding, mean that online options remain the go-to source for both novice and experienced traders to exchange crypto for fiat and vice versa.

Bitcoin Future Is Bright, Just Be Patient: Bitcoin Investor Vinny Lingham

At the peak of the recent Bitcoin price rally, Vinny Lingham, the Bitcoin price prediction pundit, told Cointelegraph it was not healthy and would not end well.

Admittedly, it did not end as many wished, but it was unlike some of the scary bursts this ecosystem has witnessed in 2013 and 2015.

Bitcoin price actually tanked from the $2,900 range to the $2,000s when most of us were calling for $3,000. It is now struggling to find its feet at the $2,100 zone. On Sunday night, it dropped as low as $2,045 and some analysts on Bitcoin Powpow even predicted it will decline between $1,600 to $2,000.

20  Bitcoin / Press / [2016-11-17] This Network Connects Public and Private Blockchains on: November 17, 2016, 07:03:00 PM
Gavin Wood, founder of Ethcore, recently renamed to Parity Technologies Ltd, has published a paper presenting Polkadot, a new network that aims to provide interoperability between private and public blockchains.

The concept is somewhat similar to sidechains, but sidechains “are pretty much limited to token transfers for now,” says Peter Czaban from Ethcore. On the other hand, “Polkadot handles canonicaliztion of the parachains and enables rich communication” – he added. Moreover, according to the paper, each sidechain requires its own security while Polkadot aims to provide “pooled security across chains,” according to a public statement by Gavin Wood.
