What the Theft of a BBC Reporter’s $30,000 in Ethereum Shows About Cryptocurrency


Last week, BBC contributor Monty Mumford lost $30,000 of Ethereum. This came after a logical thought process: invest in the future of digital finance, look up how to securely store said investment, follow initial advice. This led to buying Ethereum, finding recommendations to store on one’s own wallet rather than an exchange, and save the private keys somewhere safe. That led to the MyEtherWallet web wallet being chosen, and private keys printed out on a sheet of paper… and saved in drafts in Gmail. That last part elicits a cringe from the crypto savvy, but a new user would have no idea that such an action was a major faux pas. Which perfectly illustrates a huge problem with the industry.

Re crypto use in Venezuela - the classic case in such circumstances is "bad money drives out good", meaning that people would be more likely to dump something they perceive to be losing value rapidly (Bolivars) and to hodl something they perceive to retain value (Dash, for example). So, while merchants might accept Dash, most people would rather hang on to it than give it to a merchant if it is a useful store of value. It's usually the junk money that is in mass circulation, not the "good stuff". It's early days yet - see what happens once merchants stop accepting Bolivars.

How happy are DASH holders with the current price fluctuations?

The current Dash price fluctuations are still very strongly tied to Bitcoin price fluctuations and looking at
a longterm chart of Dash, i suspect that Dash is still in accumulation phase (which is a lenghty process, which
could take a few more months). Just keep an eye on longterm MACD and RSI coming months as these are indicators
that could possibly hint on a new longterm price trend forming.



I think once we get past this accumulation phase and start a new uptrend, the Dash price fluctuations will get much
stronger as Dash will start moving directly against Bitcoin.

This is also interesting to read : https://www.newsbtc.com/2019/08/19/bitcoin-dominance-alt-season-crypto/
And from above mentioned newsbtc.com article, this is interesting to view and be aware of :

Recently I read about the lighting network, and its centralization.

https://medium.com/hackernoon/them-lightning-network-nodes-sure-do-look-centralized-to-me-what-gives-ee39c9b12ac0

And it seems that the opinion they sell us of being a centralized network is far from reality. If it is finally proven that it is a decentralized, fast and cheap option, could this very negatively affect parts of the advantages that Dash offers?

I hope that the theory of accumulation is correct, the number of wallets with coins has been stagnant for 1,095,000 weeks, and the masternodos seem to confirm that they maintain their positions regardless of price, but without increasing despite cheap prices.

You are stating an opinion that Bitcoin Lightning Network is in fact decentralized, fast and cheap and you are all basing that on one pretty lenghty and difficult to read medium article ?
Lets talk about some of the setbacks about Bitcoin Lightning Network :

1 : Bitcoin's Lightning Network is still in pre-alpha state, it will take a long time before it will be introduced to their Mainnet and supported by their development team. Anything you see on their Mainnet with regards to
     Lightning Network is pure experimentation, has associated risks and is not (fully) supported.
 
2 : The economics of payment channels and efficient routing between n-to-m endpoints means that the most efficient (in terms of minimizing the number of hops) configuration of the network would be large payment hubs
     that would have open channels to everyone else (and to each other). This means whomever has more money available will be able to open and maintain more payment channels, becoming a payment hub.*
     This means centralization. Time will tell if this is indeed the case (basicly its too early to tell).

3 : The security model in Lightning is the inverse of the one used in Bitcoin. In Bitcoin, you don’t have my money until I send it to you. There is nothing you can do short of stealing my private keys to take my money from
     me. Conversely in Lightning, the security of the payment channels requires constant monitoring to ensure that your counterparty is not stealing money from you by publishing an old channel state to the network..
     Basically, the security model of Bitcoin changes to one where you have to actively guard against theft, instead of the current one where you have passive protection from theft (assuming you manage your own private
     keys).*

Advantages of Dash :

1 : InstantSend currently available on its Dash Mainnet, without any additional fees and has automatic protection against doublespending. It will only need transaction fees, which are pretty low.

2 : Dash upscaling takes place on-chain by increasing its blocksize and/or by increasing hardware requirements for its masternodes and Dash network is decentralized of nature.

3 : Dash security model is not only better then Bitcoin because of ChainLocks (providing protection against 51% attacks), it also keeps users in full possession and full control of their funds.  

4 : With Dash Core v1.0 Dash will have userfriendly wallets, a decentralized API and a decentralized platform on which to run additional services and products. This will bring Dash many more use cases.

qwizzie gave us interesting price charts, that shows good overview on temporary situation of market, for both bitcoin and DASH. For DASH and altcoins, I think if someone already bought good altcoins, they should hold them all for next several months. During current terrible period of market for altcoins, it is  a bit stressful to observe price every day, in my opinion.
We are human and somehow are unable to fully control our feelings, especially if we are inexperienced traders/ investors. Weak investors likely shake their hands out when price falls and fluctuates in bottom range for too long, long enough to beat patience of those guys.
Honestly, in April and May, I did not thought that DASH might drop to around 0.01 BTC, but in fact the coin fell deeper than 0.01 BTC. Felt dissapointed a bit when saw the coin fell, but days later, after accumulate more cheap DASH coins, my feelings are better and I am happy that I controlled my determination and did not shake my hands out at bottom recent weeks.

DASH is still holding firm as a great investment with potential.

Well expressed, thank you very much. I see it as you do, and that is why I keep my position firm and if I saw Dash again approaching $ 60  again, I would not hesitate to increase my portfolio.

The article that I mentioned about lighting network has been added because BTC maximalists are filling people's heads with this kind of little contrasted information that harms other projects with better technologies such as Dash.

It is a pity not to be able to show the comparative advantages globally, since the Dash niche with respect to BTC is still undiscovered, and I hope this changes, hopefully sooner rather than later.

A Greetings, and thanks again for your vision.

Steve Capone of Voyager Trading App on Bitcoin Trading, Cryptocurrency Mass Adoption


I had the pleasure of speaking to Steve Capone, Chief Market Officer for the Voyager investment app. We talked about the key differences between exchanges and brokerage services, and how Voyager attempts to cut out all the difficulties and complexities associated with managing trading across multiple exchanges, replacing it with a simple experience similar to modern stock brokerage services like E*Trade. We also talked about the propensity of “old-schooler” crypto fans to be very patient with complexity, while the next wave of adopters will likely need something that’s actually easy to use. Finally, we discussed Dash Evolution, and Voyager’s upcoming “proof-of-keys” trading solution.
