What are the Things to Look for When Buying into an ICO?

What are the Things to Look for When Buying into an ICO?
The Initial Coin Offering (ICO) is the initial sale of coins of a particular cryptocurrency before it goes mainstream. ICOs usually offer the coins at a price that is more affordable than when the coin goes mainstream and mining begins.

While it may seem like a good idea to buy ICOs and resell them when the price spikes in order to make a profit, this is not always beneficial.

The cryptocurrency may not pick up as expected and your money may just go down the drain.

What should you do?

in spite of all the theory and the remainder of them demonstrating lower costs and individuals notwithstanding longing for them, the $5900 cost has been an exceptionally solid purchase bolster which has remained solid for quite a while. it is currently mentally solid as well as individuals consider it to be the base which value continues hitting and skipping once more from. despite the fact that there is a considerable measure of dumps going on today uniquely among altcoins which is additionally affecting bitcoin cost however we continue seeing this versatility which may not be logical for some

Original:
despite all the speculation and TA and all the rest of them showing lower prices and people even wishing for them, the $6k price has been a very strong buy support which has stayed strong for a long time. it is now psychologically strong too as people see it as the bottom which price keeps on hitting and bouncing back from.
although there is a lot of dumps going on today specially among altcoins which is also influencing bitcoin price but we keep seeing this "resilience" which may not even be explainable for many.

I suggest buying in the Bitcoin ATM in your area. This is the fastest way instead of meeting in public.you can try coinbase but not sure if they have started supporting GBP/BTC yet. There is also bitfinex and they support GBP to BTC conversion.

You can try bitcoin ATM machines around your area but I think the rate won’t be same as the exchanges. So you can try coinbase but not sure if they have started supporting GBP/BTC yet.

By combining the three verticals of Statistics, Sentiment/Knowledge and Technology we can draw the following picture:

Technology needs to mature in order for the price to raise exponentially,
There is also no relation between small-scale improvements and price gains,
Adoption happens due to technologies becoming easier to use and people getting hyped,
The likelihood of bitcoin’s price raising above 10k until the end of 2018 is much higher than the opposite happening
There are many exceptions that could go against my logic, although I honestly believe even if the drought lasted more than a year, it would eventually recover and fly past prior highs.

I concur that a cash with high instability can`t be utilized as cash. Be that as it may, on account of the digital currency, which has numerous different points of interest, and which individuals need to use as cash, this issue can be illuminated. One conceivable answer for the issue of unpredictability is to attach the digital money to gold at a settled rate. This will require the accord of the crypto network and the support who is prepared to make the physical gold market at a concurred cost in the crypto. This sort of crypto, sponsored by gold, may even turn into a worldwide save money, particularly in the event that it was upheld by the nations who are searching for routes out of the ebb and flow administration arrangement of the USA dollar.

I agree that a currency with high volatility can`t be used as money. But in the case of the crypto currency, which has many other advantages, and which people want to use as money, this problem can be solved. One possible solution to the problem of volatility is to tie the crypto currency to gold at a fixed rate. This will require the consensus of the crypto community and the sponsor who is ready to make the physical gold market at an agreed price in the crypto. This kind of crypto, backed by gold, may even become a global reserve currency, especially if it was supported by the countries who are looking for ways out of the current hegemony system of the USA dollar.

Governments are against Bitcoin in light of the fact that it's a rival to each Country-based currency...which is every one of them! Obviously they trust it'll bring monetary instability but what an administration believes isn't a goal supposition. We should all emphasis on what's best for us. What's more, keeping our benefits in a speculations that will welcome, that are known for gratefulness, is the best move.

Such a very good information. Some get really creative in storing their keys. Some have them engraved on steel then stored in a safe, some encrypt them in music files, while others have them tatooed on their skin. But as we know, the most commonly found in the loss of bitcoin or altcoin is human error. just enter a private key into an airdrop form and an application that contains trojans or malware that is eventually embedded in the pc. be careful in using tools or applications because of the RAT is not really good. And keep your coin from being stolen by others.

Crypto is a brand new monetary market. It doesn't even come close to the depth of stocks or gold around the world, but it has the potential to eclipse both.

By default anything which can give you a very high return in a very short span of time will be very risky, because risk and returns are always inversely proportional. Cryptocurrencies are a high risk high return game. So I would suggest you to invest the amount you can afford to lose.

On the off chance that the data about the digital currency creation is affirmed, it will look like uncalled for rivalry .Recently, Google declared about the work without anyone else blockchain arrangements and even welcomed Vitalik Buterin.

If you have been in the cryptocurrency space long enough, you’ll recall that exchanges like Poloniex, Binance, and many others did not originally require users to submit any information. Now, however, users are required to upload a form of identification to prove that they are who they claim to be.

And in general, crypto firms are under increasing harassment from regulators. Following Coincheck’s infamous hack in Japan where almost $530 million of digital currency was stolen, two more exchanges in the country — Mr. Exchange and Tokyo GateWay — will be shutting down operations in the country because they can’t uphold the regulatory requirements.

It is exceptionally feasible for a monster organization, for example, google to have their own particular coin on the off chance that they needed to let it all out, the truth of the matter is that in the event that they made a coin then that coin would probably wind up doing great since they are as of now prevalent with individuals and individuals would be all the more trusting of a coin made by a trustworthy organization like google rather than some coin from somebody they don't know

It is very possible for a giant company such as google to have their own coin if they wanted to go for it, the fact is that if they did make a coin then that coin would most likely end up doing very good because they are already popular with people and people would be more trusting of a coin made by a reputable company like google instead of some coin from someone they don't know

Bitcoin is the base money of this crypto market and all the altcoins take after the bitcoin value slant. In the event that the cost of bitcoin in diminish incline then all the market will go down and if the cost of bitcoin in expanding pattern then all the market goes upwards. So I think there is a solid association amongst bitcoin and altcoins.

All three posts:

Neironix practices a comprehensive approach to drawing up the rating using no less than 75 key dynamic risk factors. This approach allows one to draw an objective picture as to the investment attractiveness of an ICO or blockchain project, and provide potential investors with unbiased information about the key strategic indicators and potential risks.
The rating is based on evaluating the totality of essential parameters typical for subjects of rating drawing or their groups.
The main principle of building Neironix ratings is a reduction in the share of experts’ judgments and increase of the role of algorithmic and methodological constituent parts.
The rating drawing methods by Neironix make it possible to identify a group of factors having impact on the reliability and investment stability of an ICO project. The rating objectives also include identifying the stability of such conditions and evaluating their correlation with other parameters in question.
To display the factual results of the rating drawing process, the Neironix project uses streamlined scales. The main objective of these scales lies in transforming the collected data arrays into a single and compact system of rating scores that may serve as a guide for potential investors in the development of long-term investment strategy and making decision as to possible cooperation with a blockchain project being expedient or not. This system is also a form for displaying the current condition of ICO. The Neironix project uses a single unified rating scale showing a quantitative indicator of risk level (full or partial loss of investment resources) by way of assigning points (scoring) of 0 to 100, where 0 stands for the highest level of risk, while 100 stands for the highest investment reliability of the project. The indicator obtained is displayed in the form of Neironix platform’s rating.
At present, the beta version of Neironix platform is available at: https://neironix.io. It presents the global listing of ICO projects, extended analytical data for cryptocurrency exchanges, and the current condition of cryptocurrency markets. The Neironix project is already available in the form of mobile app versions for IOS and Android, as well as extension for Google Chrome browser.
Neironix project is unique in terms of aggregate benefits and opportunities for cryptocurrency market players and has no equals in blockchain market.


and

Information is the key competitive edge in the cryptocurrency market. At present, numerous advisors,
telegram bots, closed chats, and investor clubs are the sources of information and subjective expert opinion
(which nobody bears responsibility for). They provide to the users on a fee basis prejudiced information
about the possible areas of investments without disclosing all potential risks. The use of untrustworthy data
may result in the loss of investment resources.
The cryptocurrency market is woefully short of a brand-new product that would provide a comprehensive
informational and analytical platform allowing one to evaluate ICO and blockchain projects on the basis of
unbiased information about the potential risk factors, clear to classic investor from the world of fiat
economics.
The Neironix project team is happy to present its end product – a platform for multidimensional scoring of ICO
projects that makes multidimensional analysis of large bulk of data and interprets it into clear and unbiased
rating indicators. They can be used for preparation of professional judgments.
This product is a multifunctional set of tools in the form of transparent and structured analytical data, which
can be used for marketplace trading, development of long-term investment strategy, or making managerial
decisions on the expediency of cooperation with any individual ICO project.

and

Digital assets are not only a part of modern financial system, but mark a new stage of the global economic development as well. The market of investments in technological blockchain startups is not limited by national boundaries, so a new era of alternative investments has come. ICO (Initial Coin Offering) that has replaced traditional IPO (Initial Public Offering) is the key investment site of digital economics. All ICO held in 2016 taken together raised $96 million. In 2017, this figure grew to $3.7 billion, while the capitalization of cryptocurrency market reached $372 billion. The reasons behind such high dynamics of increase in investments lie in the dramatically growing number of new blockchain startups and rising interest in investments in blockchain industry.

Of course, basic programming knowledge reserves still have to be there, but the details of the bottom mechanism should not be a stumbling block to hold back your strategy as soon as possible to run.

The meaning of the term "Quants" is a very broad concept. Usually operated as a common team, everyone on this team can be called a “Quants”. In the team, someone is responsible for writing the program; someone is responsible for formulating the strategy; someone is responsible for the maintenance and backtesting of the actual running of the strategy; someone is responsible for the establishment of strategic mathematical models (especially algorithmic trading); and others are responsible for the study of market fundamentals.

Looking at the 4-hour BTC/USD charts on Bitstamp and Coinbase shows bulls are pushing markets forward attempting to challenge the $6,800-7,000 resistance. Around 1 pm EDT relative strength index (RSI) levels show overbought conditions at 76. The two Simple Moving Averages (SMA) have crossed hairs recently and the 100 SMA is above the 200 SMA. This indicates the path of least resistance is towards the upside. MACd is heading northbound and shows more upswing could be in the cards today. Looking at order books shows BTC bulls need to crack the $6,800-7,000 territory and after that is smoother seas up until $7,200. On the backside, if bears took the reigns again there is plenty of support down to $5600 for quite some time.

To be able to spend Bitcoin, the owner needs a special line of code called "private key". This line of code is stored in a "wallet" or digital wallet. When it will be used, the owner accesses the code and uses it for transactions. The private key can be stored locally on the computer or printed with the printer. The problem arises because this line of code can be stolen or lost. If that happens, all Bitcoin associated with the private key will disappear forever from the owner's hand. Private keys stored in "Cold Storage" (computers or storage media that are not connected to the internet) also have their own vulnerabilities.

Cases like this are a few happen in the last few months. For example, events that befall Inputs.io. The online wallet providers last November the hackers exploited resulting in the "customer" to lose 1.2 million worth of Bitcoin us dollars.

Private key that is stored in "Cold Storage" (computer or storage media that is not connected to the internet) also have their own special vulnerabilities.

It may take a year or maybe even 2yrs but its coming. In the last 100 yrs we have gone from no electricity to sending people to the moon. Technology is growing at crazy speeds.

Investment Strategies: Let’s Make Something Clear

How do investors make decisions they want to invest in real estate or stocks? Do they start making investments the moment they think about it? My guess is that the answer to that question is – no!

Before you invest in anything, you need a clear understanding of what your investment goals are and how you will achieve them. You want a good idea of how long you are prepared to keep your investment open, and what amount of profit you are happy to take.

You should have the same mindset with cryptocurrency investments. Before you decide what the next cryptocurrency to invest in 2018 is for you, let’s discuss the two main types of investment strategies for cryptocurrencies.

The traditional banking system works on regular Fait money.Meanwhile, Bitcoin, as a peer-to-peer (P2P) settlement system, was able to process over $1 bln worth of transactions, and more than $7 bln worth of Bitcoin was traded on a single day. Regardless of holidays and weekends, users of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies like Ether can freely transact on a peer-to-peer basis, through the utilization of wallets.

Non-custodial cryptocurrency wallets enable users to remain in full control over their funds, by only allowing users to gain access to their private keys and no other centralized entity or platform. As such, Bitcoin wallets likeBlockchain, Trezor and Ledger cannot refund transactions or recover user accounts once the private key is lost, encouraging users to be more financially aware and responsible.

As emphasized by Bitcoin analyst and RT’s Keiser Report host Max Keiser on several occasions, financial freedom and independence provided by Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in the market are largely beneficial and crucial for individuals and businesses operating in regions wherein government entities control banks and financial institutions.

With over 2000 altcoins glutting the market a bloodbath is inevitable
2017 and 2018 were wild years in the crypto world. The number of ICOs exploded and with it the number of altcoins. As of this summer, there are over 2000 cryptocurrencies available. However, many of the new altcoins are weak in terms of creativity and vision. I’ve been tracking ICOs for the past two years and have seen a lot are based on recycled technology and unworkable ideas. This, along with the low success rate of startups in general, suggests that many if not most of the new altcoins don’t have a future.

Before panic sets in it is important to remember there are altcoins that will survive. Below is a list of 10 that I think have the best chance. Note Ethereum is not there because I don’t see it as an altcoin. I think Ethereum will survive as a store of value along with Bitcoin.

Blockchain and cryptocurrency are two different things but they are inseparable. Cyrptocurrency is digital currency which can be used in financial transactions and those transactions are automatically recorded in digital ledger called blockchain. Every transaction should be recorded properly for monitoring and transparency of records. The good thing in blockchain is, it is made publicly and cannot be corrupt by hackers. Blockchain protocol tokens serve two purposes today: they protect scarce network resources without introducing centralized gatekeepers, and they incentivize desirable behavior in network participants.

The cause of someone experiencing Deja Vu :

1. Ever been in the same place before
A 2009 study published in the journal Psychonomic Bulletin & Review shows that when volunteers enter a room filled with furniture, volunteers are very similar in shape, position, and content, they feel deja vu. They think they have seen before. The researchers concluded that there was a connection between Deja vu and feeling used.

2. Frequent travel
People who travel and people who can remember their own dreams will have a greater chance of experiencing deja vu, than those who always stay home or don't remember their dreams. They can draw a wider range of sources including from their own imagination, so sometimes they feel they have experienced it before.

3. There is something with the brain
Some people have symptoms of temporal lobe epilepsy. Epilepsy occurs in parts of your brain that handle short-term memory. Usually the symptoms of epilepsy occur if a memory or memory in the brain is activated to be remembered. And the effect caused by the sufferer is a seizure. Some researchers think deja vu is triggered by a type of interference in neuronal firing in the brain.

Original: https://www.health.com/mind-body/deja-vu-causes

Researchers tested that theory in a 2009 study published in the journal Psychonomic Bulletin & Review. They showed volunteers images that had nothing to do with one another—a fenced-in courtyard, and then later, a locker room—and the volunteers felt déjà vu because the images were composed in a very similar way. The researchers concluded that there was probably a connection between déjà vu and the feelings of “familiarity.”

You travel a lot
People who travel and people who can recall their dreams are more likely to experience déjà vu than those who stay at home or don’t remember their dreams, according to the 2003 review. These people can draw on a wider range of sources (either from, say, their adventures Europe, or just their own imagination), so it makes sense that they should think other environments feel familiar, too.

Huobi, an international blockchain asset firm, currently headquartered in Singapore and founded in 2013, has its offices spanned in the United States, Japan, South Korea, and Hong Kong.

After China’s nationwide crackdown on cryptocurrency exchanges and initial coin offerings (ICOs) in late 2017, the Huobi Group shifted its headquarters from Beijing to Singapore. Now, despite the declining prices of cryptocurrencies in 2018, Huobi appears to be moving forward aggressively with its expansion efforts.

There are a ton of stores and hotspots for learning yet at the same time, individuals would prefer not to take second supposition and check sources. I concede, right around series of years on this gathering and I know minimal about bitcoin's details, however at whatever point I'm offered a conversation starter about any of it, I attempt my best to check genuine sources and not delude individuals.

Now and then, psychological disharmony rules for a great many people despite the fact that it's anything but difficult to go find it on the web in the present age. Individuals lose cash, not on the grounds that they don't know anything about a specific venture, but since they are sluggish to know anything about it.

Sometimes, cognitive dissonance reigns supreme for most people even though it's easy to go look it up on the internet in today's age. People lose money, not because they don't know anything about a certain investment, but because they are lazy to know anything about it.

In my opinion, it's best to buy the top 10 coins in the rankings, even though it's low profit but it's safe. Then, you can join the Bounty campaign to get a better understanding of the market, you can invest your money depending on you about how you will invest it, you can invest in different coins or just one coin, but I really invest with bitcoin even though it is short term.

If you are really willing to earn you can actually both easily, you can invest your money depending on you on how you gonna invest it, either you can invest in different coins or just one coin but I really suggest invest with bitcoin even tho it is a short-term but then I also suggest with long-term investment. As I said you can also do bounty campaign while investing which is not really hard to do, I mostly do bounty campaign and I'm investing for long-term.

since cryptocurrency is not bound by the exchange rates, interest rates, transactions charges or other charges of any country; therefore it can be used at an international level without experiencing any problems. This, in turn, saves lots of time as well as money on the part of any business which is otherwise spent in transferring money from one country to the other.

The likelihood with which crypto offer wealth medium-term is on the low, thus seldom happens.

The probability with which crypto offer riches overnight is on the low, hence rarely happens. The general trend follows the principle of patience where an investor has to hold a coin for a couple of weeks or months to years in other to experience the true potentials of the coin market. Without patience in crypto, an investor is liable to sell a valuable coin for a very low price and regret later.

Nonetheless, the market will surely recover any time soon, because this is not just the expectation of many, but that the circumstances surrounding the present time have revealed it.

It depends a lot on the specific altcoin you're talking about. For the most part, there aren't a lot of major differences between Bitcoin and the alts. Sadly many of them exist only as the leftovers of pump-and-dump schemes intended to make their creators rich, though there are a few that are interesting in important ways.One of the primary benefits of a thriving altcoin economy is that they often represent the testing of a theory that may eventually benefit Bitcoin itself.

Amway, we all know Bitcoin has a transaction time of over ten minutes on average. And this can take several hours in cases thanks to its very low block size. Altcoins like Dash and Ripple have successfully overcome this problem and has a clear advantage over Bitcoin at this point. Also mining of Bitcoin is much expensive and difficult requires data center for it while Altcoin like ripple can be mined using a mobile phone.

One of the primary benefits of a thriving altcoin economy is that they often represent the testing of a theory.

Hard to imagine a bull run anytime soon with so many people clearly looking for a price point to simply dump their holdings and free themselves from crypto bondage. Going to be a lot of resistance on the way up. Eventually once that's over and the field is clear though, I expect it to rocket upwards as people desperately pile back in trying not to miss the opportunity to make money on the way to the new ATH. If you decide to hold now, I think you should be thinking pretty long term.

Ugh... I just reported a post yesterday but didn't describe the exact violation because I wasn't sure what to call it. Basically, this post:

The main goal of the team is to make Newton Coin the main cryptographic system in the field of research in the field of medical and renewable energy sources.

is just a rewording of a sentence from the OP:

...
One of our goals is to make Newton Coin the primary crypto payment system in the medical and renewable energy research fields.
...

Which I now know is called text-spinning. My report appears to be unhandled so if any mod for the altcoins/announcements subforum sees it please process it as text-spinning.

Jr. member crypto_koins copy / pasting a Medium article (replacing the bullet point "Use ProtonMail" with "Use encrypted email server" for whatever reason):
 

Copy:

If we keep our money in a bank then we don’t need to worry about safety because it’s ultimately up to the bank to protect that money. We pay fees for the account to be maintained, so if someone robbed that bank, the bank would insure the funds so that we would not personally lose.

Crypto space is different, we are our bank.
What comes with that is responsibility; the responsibility to protect our assets. These assets are digital and guess what — digital assets can be hacked. Just like a bank can be robbed, a hacker can stroll on into your personal bank (your crypto wallet) and take what is yours. No insurance and no one to blame.

If you’re storing crypto assets in wallets there are a number of things you can do to protect yourself. Keep these five tips in mind to keep your digital assets secure.

1. Use a hardware wallet
When you leave your money on exchanges there are lot of things that can go wrong. Governments might freeze the funds in the exchange. Your account might get hacked. Your exchange might get hacked and so on. Most of these exchanges not having proper customer support only adds to the problem. And hence it is suggested to move your funds which you don’t use for trading to an offline wallet.

2. Use Two Factor Authentication
If the wallet offers a two-factor authentication (2FA) take it. This means that if someone had access to your login details, they would also need your phone to get the 2FA code. However, note that text and email 2FA are not recommended as these can easily be intercepted if someone has access to your email, or ports your phone number to a new device.
Paul Makowski, PolySwarm CTO, suggests the best 2FA options, in order of most to least secure, are as follows:
•   Hardware dongle, see: https://landing.google.com/advancedprotection/
•   An app on your phone that doesn’t sync your secrets anywhere (e.g. Google authenticator)
•   An app on your phone that does sync (e.g. Authy)
•   Email based
•   SMS based

3. Don’t Use Public Wi-Fi
We have access to public WIFI in a variety of places, from libraries and councils to hotels, cafes and airports, allowing for an anywhere office. Crypto is 24/7 and hackers know it, and access to Wi-Fi makes it tempting to log into our accounts, wallets and exchanges on-the-go. But this is risky.
The vulnerability that comes with public Wi-Fi is that they make it easy for hackers to access computers that are connected to that network. There are three specific ways in which public Wi-Fi is risky, as David Maimon, Assistant Professor in the department of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Maryland told Digital Trends:
•   Man-in-the-middle attacks
•   Malware
•   Wi-Fi sniffing

To avoid this issue, don’t have your Wi-Fi turned on, allowing it to search and connect public Wi-Fi connections. Have it turned off and carry with you an internet dongle for private connection instead. Something that costs you $10 a month could save you hundreds of thousands of dollars in asset protection. If your data plan allows for it, you can also use your own hotspot from your cell phone.

4. Beware When You Download (Even On Your Phone!)
Files can have malware attached to them and once on your device, that malware can action a number of sinister commands. Gone are the days that the only concern is someone racking up your phone bill or data. Now we need to worry about the malware reading keystrokes, granting hackers access to our accounts and even allowing them to read the screen on our phone.
Be cautious when downloading files, not only in email. Remember that there are clever people out there in crypto. You’ll notice files posted in communities, on Telegram, Facebook, Reddit, Bitcoin Talk, etc. As tempting at it is to click them, be aware that they could be bait. Always use caution. You can even use Kapersky’s File Desk to quickly check links and files.

5. Use encrypted email server
Whether you have a free online email or own your own server, you’re vulnerable to malicious email access. ProtonMail is an encrypted email service that takes a different approach to email security. The encryption means that no one but you can read your emails, not even ProtonMail themselves.
Note: that we do not work with nor endorse ProtonMail, it is merely a resource the author believes may be valuable.

6. Keep Private Keys Offline
If you have wallets on your computer, always store your private keys offline either on an external hard drive or as a hard copy, stored someone in your house. If someone gains access via malware or public Wi-Fi, this allows you to limit what they can find or take, which buys you time to realize that your device is comprised before anything important is stolen.

If you’re serious about investing in bitcoin and see yourself buying a significant amount, I recommend using Bitcoin wallets that were built with security in mind.
Ledger Nano S – Ledger is a Bitcoin security company that offers a wide range of secure Bitcoin storage devices. We currently see the Ledger Nano S as Ledger’s most secure wallet. Read more about the Ledger Nano or buy one.
TREZOR – TREZOR is a hardware wallet that was built to secure bitcoins. It generates your Bitcoin private keys offline. Read more about TREZOR or buy one.

Because Bitcoin is on the internet, they are even easier to steal and much harder to return and trace. Bitcoin itself is secure, but bitcoins are only as secure as the wallet storing them.

~1. Offline Mode:
The offline mode of securing bitcoins is called cold storage.

2. Backup:
Backup your entire bitcoin wallet early and often. In case of a computer failure, a history of regular backups may be the only way to recover the currency in the digital wallet.

3. Software:
Keep your software up to date. A wallet running on non-updated bitcoin software can be a soft target for hackers.

The offline mode of securing bitcoins is called cold storage. Cold storage wallets are not connected to the Internet and are thus less susceptible to hacking. Since accessing a cold storage wallet can be inconvenient, it’s best to split the bitcoins you own. Keep a small amount of bitcoins in an online digital wallet for daily trading needs and keep the rest in cold storage. Cold storage takes the private keys in an offline mode, thus decreasing the chances of theft. The practice of using cold storage is not only popular with individuals but even with cryptocurrency exchanges that deal with huge sums and are often under constant threat by hackers. The popular cold storage methods are paper wallet, sound wallets, storage devices (like a USB drive), and hardware wallets.

Cryptocurrencies can feel secure, because they decentralize and often anonymize digital transactions. They also validate everything on public, tamper-resistant blockchains. But those measures don't make cryptocurrencies any less susceptible to the types of simple, time-honored scams grifters have relied on in other venues. Just this week, scams have arisen that divert funds from users' mining rigs to malicious wallets, because victims forgot to change default login credentials. Search engine phishing scams that tout malicious trading sites over legitimate exchanges have also spiked. And a trojan called CryptoShuffler has stolen thousands of dollars by lurking on computers, and spying on Bitcoin wallet addresses that land in copy/paste clipboards.

for me, a key step to protecting your cryptocurrency is to store anything of significant value in a hardware wallet -a physical device like, a USB drive, that stores your private keys and currency locally, and isn't connected to the internet. Expert caution against storing large amounts of coins through cryptocurrency exchanges, or in digital wallet apps on your smartphone or computer.

One of the main differences between Bitcoin and Litecoin concerns the total number of coins which each cryptocurrency can produce. The Bitcoin network can never exceed 21 million coins, whereas Litecoin can accommodate up to 84 million coins. Although in theory this sounds like a significant advantage in favor of Litecoin, its real-world effects may be negligible.

The cryptocurrency market has attracted the attention of many people and continues to gain popularity. The most advanced cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and Verge, have grown tens and hundreds times in just a few years. The Internet is full of stories about lucky people who successfully stocked up with Bitcoins or Ethereum at the right time.
Many new investors are interested in getting into the cryptocurrencies, but there are significant risks involved. The market may correct 50–70% in a matter of few days, and the ones who are not experienced enough can suffer severe losses. Therefore, it is important to understand the factors behind the course of the currency, and how this can predict the movement of prices.
It is known that the dynamics of the exchange rate is determined by the supply-and-demand. “Price takes all into account", ?that is what one of the basic rules of trading says. These laws are universal for any market. But this is a generalized representation. It is necessary to identify the main criteria that influence market trends in projections for short and long-term prospects for a deeper understanding.

ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) have become a popular way to fund cryptocurrency projects. An ICO is an event in which a new cryptocurrency project sells part of its cryptocurrency tokens to early adopters and enthusiasts in exchange for money today. ICOs provide a way for cryptocurrency project creators to raise money for their operations. Most ICOs raise money in Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies.

The ICO usually takes place before the project is completed, and helps fund the expenses undertaken by the founding team until launch. For some of the larger projects, part of the ICO money goes into a foundation that provides ongoing support to the project. They also work as an initial distribution model for the cryptocurrency tokens, especially those with a proof of stake consensus algorithm.

The ICO participants are invested in the success of the project. They can help get the word out and raise awareness in the broader community. They also provide early liquidity for the cryptocurrency tokens when they start trading. The ICO participants are also usually motivated by a profit potential if the project takes off and the tokens become worth more than the ICO price.ecome worth more than the ICO price.

When a company or group issues their own cryptocurrency, they usually create a certain number of Token and sell the tokens to investors in different Crowdsale. Often, developers will accept payment by Bitcoin or Ethereum. Investing in an ICO is profitable, but risk can also occur. ICO is a form of investment chosen by many investors because of its super-profit nature. I have also invested in a number of recent ICO projects, successful projects, and failed projects.

Now a days hackers has that type of technology which can hacks anything. So what's the best way to protect your cryptocurrency investments from hacks?

To find out, we reached out to three cryptocurrency investors and three cybersecurity experts. All three investors have lost some cryptocurrencies due to different hacks. One of the experts, Amir Bandeali, also is an investor, lost about 18 percent of his investments because the exchange (Bitfinex) he was trading with was hacked. That incident inspired him to build decentralized exchanges, which he believes will be the future for trading cryptocurrencies.

i can give you two newbie tips

1. Before you open up an account on Coinbase [or other exchanges](don't recommend any exchange but is easier to keep your coins there), set up an unique email that you are going to use for that account.

2. Make sure to set a really hard and long password, and you are the only one to access it from a piece of paper that you control.

Blockchain is a data structure that enables the creation of a digital ledger of transactions and shares it within a distributed network of computers. It utilizes cryptography to allow each participant on the network to use the ledger in a secure way without a central authority.

Once a block of data is recorded and placed on the Blockchain ledger, it’s extremely hard to change or remove. Blockchain can be hacked in theory (it would take decades and a supercomputer), but in reality, it’s impossible.

So, in my opinion the blockchain is needed for security.

Original: https://medium.com/krown/how-blockchain-benefits-security-b13c5ba48265



Blockchain is a revolutionary new way of sharing information and is clearly a valuable and transformative technology but cryptocurrencies are just a fad, the latest bubble from tulips to tech stocks. So, why care about cryptocurrencies at all? In truth, the two are  inseparable.

The tokens that make up cryptocurrencies (from Bitcoin to Ether to Monero) are the means by which one participates in public blockchain protocols. This is not optional. It’s a fundamental feature of the technology. If a public blockchain protocol is valuable, then the tokens through which one participates in it accrue value.

Everyday we see threads about hacked/locked accounts, which are not only beginners' accounts but also for Legendary members'.  In addition to the brute force hacking risk, there are peculiar risks in the current system and by data breach in 2015.  The security of the forum account has been one of the biggest issue.  The improvement of security, e.g. requiring email verification for changing password/email, introduction of 2FA, automated account recovery system, and the new forum software with stronger security would be ideal.  

Meanwhile, until these features are implemented, what we can do now is to learn how the current bitcointalk system works, how to improve the security of your bitcointalk account, and also what you should do in case your account is hacked/locked.  In this thread, I tried to provide a thorough guide about these topics.  I hope it helps to reduce the number of hacked/lost accounts.

Bitcoin prices hit $ 300 in just under a minute after nearly 48 hours of trading on the sideways, at the same time as the BitMEX platform .
This "extraordinary" incident occurred when the BTC jumped from $ 6,466 to $ 6,745 in a one-minute candle on Bitfinex, and Bitcoin has since continued to rise, surpassing $ 6,800 and peaked at $ 6,899 before falling back to $ 6,840. at the time the post was made.
There is a sign that this price movement, which began at the moment of sudden drop in trading volume, is not entirely "natural". This is because the BTC has risen at the right time at BitMEX, a leveraged electronic money platform that spans billions of dollars in electronic money margin each day, announcing a temporary Interrupt operation for system maintenance purposes.

The bitcoin price took a major leap on Wednesday morning, spiking nearly $300 in less than a minute to break out of what had been two days of mostly sideways trading for the flagship cryptocurrency.

The incident in question occurred at exactly 1:00 UTC, when BTC leaped from $6,466 to $6,745 during a single one-minute candle on Bitfinex, and the bitcoin price continued to increase from there, rising above the $6,800 mark and peaking at $6,899 before settling back down to a present value of $6,840 at 1:34 UTC.

Early indications suggest that the price action, which came during a period of relatively-low trading volume in the cryptocurrency markets, may not be quite organic. That’s because it occurred at nearly the exact moment that BitMEX, a leveraged cryptocurrency trading platform that handles billions of dollars worth of contracts daily, went offline for scheduled maintenance.

Copy/Paste:

The main value of crypto currency is its immutability. Immutability, as it pertains to blockchains, is the idea that the public ledger can not be altered.  This is an important trait for blockchains to have for several reasons:

1)The moment the rules of the protocol change for reasons outside of technical improvements, you open up pandora's box:  Who's to determine what the criteria is for reversing transactions?  Why does one situation fit but not another? Is there a difference between someone who had their coins stolen or sent to the wrong address? If not, how do they prove their LTC was stolen?
2)Without immutability, the blockchain itself is no longer a useful tool for verification because it's transactional history is subject to the community and/or developers.  The reason for this is because those who break the rules will most likely break it again.   
For example, in June 2016 after the DAO hack, the Ethereum community had a choice: 1) fork away the stolen coins 2) deal with the consequences of the fork remain immutable. The community split which ultimately created Ethereum Classic and Ethereum.   
Fast forward a year and a half later and they are once again considering  another fork to refund people their ETH.  Not only that, EIP867 is a proposal to develop a standard to recover funds in the future.  Therefore, they expect and are even preparing to optionally change a ledger which is supposed to be used to reliably record transactions.
3)It maintains fungibility.  If a protocol were changed to suddenly "blacklist" LTC addresses because it is assumed those belonged to a thief, 1 LTC would no longer equal 1 LTC.  1 LTC would only equal 1 LTC as long as it's not associated with certain addresses.
4)It removes the "god-like" powers of developers.  They are no longer able to determine the fate of the blockchain no matter what their intentions may be.

Currently, the only 2 coins i know that have immutability are Bitcoin & Monero, which coin do you know other than these two ?
