Why Amazon Is Buying Up All Those Cryptocurrency URLs "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

People really want Amazon to get into cryptocurrency. Amazon-watchers have shivered with anticipation as the company bought web domains like amazonbitcoin.com, even though the site has never done more than redirect to Amazons main page. But a new wave of purchases has observers keyed up all over again. This time the acquired URLs are amazonethereum.com, amazoncryptocurrency.com, and amazoncryptocurrencies.com. Whats going on?

The easy answer is brand protection. Anyone whos worked on a political campaign knows the virtue of over-hoarding web addresses that could be used in any conceivable way to tarnish, mock, or otherwise weaken the candidate and his or her public image. Amazon can certainly afford to collect as many potentially brand-diluting or revenue-reducing domains as seems reasonable. With cryptocurrency now penetrating the consciousness of ordinary people, now is a decent time as any to scoop up a few more destinations would-be customers might go.

The sexier answer is Amazon wants to be ready to jump with a moments notice into accepting Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, you name it. Now that cryptocurrencies have made a pretty good claim to durabilityeven if their prices might fluctuate speculativelythe next big economic question is which institutions are going to muscle in first, if any.

Cryptocurrency Isnt a Good Platform for Commerce

Wall Street is too divided on the wisdom of crypto. Sovereign wealth hasnt shown enough interest. As far as we can tell, the financial powers that be are not going to transform the status and usefulness of Bitcoin and company anytime soon.

That leaves the playing field open for significant private entrants. Here you have your ideological benefactors, heavyweight speculators, bitcoin miners, and your international renegades, building up sudden, significant wealth they want to keep relatively free from global or national regulatory systems.

But there are limits to what cryptocurrency can do for the people poised to wield the most outsized control over it. Bitcoin, for instance, is a kludgy way to pay for most goods and services. Its much better and more conveniently used as a place to park wealth (assuming those exchange rates stay high). Its also a stupid way to try to participate in off the grid commerce. Thanks to the blockchain, you do not want to try paying for that suitcase full of heroin you bought on the dark web using Bitcoin.

So even though cryptocurrency is destined to remain an above-board commercial platform, its not a very good platform for commerce as currently structured. That means its not terribly attractive to a heavyweight company like Amazon that could freely wade into the status quo crypto space. So, again, whats going on?

Or Maybe Theyre Serious

GDAX Will Support the Limited SegWit2x Hard Fork After all NEWSBTC

The SegWit2x hard fork has been very contentious, to say the very least. Initial support started dwindling pretty quickly. Moreover, the developers informed the world this plan was canceled not too long ago. It seems that situation has come to change as well. A few community members will still attempt to go ahead with this fork in a few hours. As a result, GDAX will disable Bitcoin transactions and make funds available to users. An interesting development, to say the very least.

It is uncanny how the SegWit2x debacle is still not over. A lot of people were relieved when the developers scrapped their initial plans. A few hours later, someone mentioned the community would still go ahead with this fork. There are still a few miners supporting it. How all of this will play out over the next 48 hours, remains to be determined. There is a lot of confusion regarding this development, which is only understandable.

GDAX Doubts SegWit2x Will Survive

GDAX has announced their stance regarding this fork. First of all, Bitcoin deposits and withdrawals will be disabled 6 hours before the fork. This event is scheduled to take place later today at around 2 AM. Preventing users from sending funds to the wrong chain is the companys main priority. It is unknown what type of replay protection SegWit2x will offer in its current iteration. Trading on GDAX will not be affected by this change, though.

Assuming the chain is valid, the company will support the B2X tokens as well. There is no reason to believe this will become the majority chain later today, but one never knows. A lot of strange things have happened in the Bitcoin world as of late. This new fork will create even more tension among Bitcoin supporters. Do keep in mind trading of B2X will not be supported by the company right away, if ever. It certainly creates an incentive for people to buy Bitcoin right now.

Should the chain be unusable, there is no plan for B2X support whatsoever. GDAX wont even allow withdrawals of the currency either in that case. It is still possible they would allow trading later on, depending on whether or not the chain survives. Rest assured a lot of people will keep an eye on the SegWit2x chain in the coming hours. It is good to see companies clarify their position regarding sensitive matter...

RepuX Announces Upcoming Token Generation Event for its Blockchain-Backed, Data Sharing and Rewards Platform NEWSBTC

Krakw, Poland; November 17th, 2017 RepuX released its white paper today outlining its Ethereum-backed platform for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to earn rewards for sharing data on a decentralized network. Developers can use the data provided by SMEs to build Decentralized Applications (Dapps) that can then be sold back to SMEs to grow their businesses. This system of exchange and rewards enabled by the RepuX protocol forms the foundation for a new, peer-to-peer, data-sharing ecosystem.

In todays digital economy, data is gold. Software developers need access to data in order to build better applications for businesses. RepuX incentivizes SMEs to share data through the tokenization enabled by blockchain technology. Because trust is a consequence of blockchain technology, RepuX can overcome the lack of trust between anonymous actors in peer-to-peer networks. In the current data ecosystem, businesses are beholden to third parties for data set verification, which is both inefficient and costly. RepuX addresses this issue with participant-provided reputation values assigned to data sets. Reputation incentivizes data sellers to be honest and provide the highest quality data sets.

Eliminating the need for trust between actors on the network could significantly reduce fraud while simultaneously enable a spectrum of potential advancements in areas such as insurance, international trade, and micro loans. RepuX returns value to user data and bridges the digital divide between those who have easy access to machine learning data-sets and those who dont. Industries and businesses that stand to benefit from applications integrated with the RepuX protocol include, medical records, Electronic Point of Sale EPOS, Credit Scoring, Ecommerce and International Trade, Advertising and Online content, Big Data, and Archival Databases, amongst others.

RepuX intends to launch a Token Generation Event (TGE) in early 2018. 300 million RepuX tokens will be offered for sale by RepuX Limited through a pre-sale and the RepuX Foundation during the public ICO. The RepuX Token is an ERC23 token, which will be the only method to pay for and sell services on the RepuX platform. RepuX tokens can be purchased during the ICO with a transfer of ETH or BTC as well as via wire transfer for the pre-sale.

To schedule an interview, please contact Nikki Brown at Melrose PR; nikki(at)melrosepr(dot)com or call (310) 260-7901.

About RepuX

RepuX is a blockchain-backed protocol and platform for SMEs to earn rewards for sharing data on a secure, decentralized network. The RepuX platform anonymizes data and maintains quality through reputation scores determined by purchasers.

Bitcoin Price Watch; A Wild End To The Week NEWSBTC

So, we have come to the end of the week in our bitcoin price trading efforts and its looking as though we are going to have a pretty interesting close to the session. Things started moving late yesterday and we were able to jump into the markets on a nice clean breakout trade shortly before the US session closed out. As the chart below will show, action has not stopped appreciating overnight in Europe and price is now hovering in and around fresh all-time highs just below $7900. The hope is that this upside run will continue, but weve got to be aware that there is a chance we will see some degree of correction near term. If that happens, we will be ready to jump in short on a corrective downside entry.

if not, we will maintain our upside trajectory and stick with the markets as they are.

So, with this noted, lets get some levels in place that we can use to execute on this above-described strategy as and when it plays out. As ever, take a quick look at the chart below before we get started so as to get an idea where things stand and where we are looking to jump in and out of the markets if things move during the session today. It is a one-minute candlestick chart and it has our range overlaid in green.

As the chart shows, the range we are looking at for the session today comes in as defined by support to the downside at 7748 and resistance to the upside at 7849.

If we see price close above resistance, we will enter long towards an immediate upside target of 7930. Conversely, a close below support will have us in short towards a downside target of 7700. Stop losses on both trades will take us out of the positions in the event of a bias reversal.

BitPay CEO Claims Current Average Bitcoin Fee Makes 57.26% Wallet Balances Unspendable NEWSBTC

Everyone knows the Bitcoin transaction fees always spark new debates. In most cases, those discussions are not going all that well. Tony Gallippi, the CEO of BitPay, isnt a big fan of this situation either. Instead, he points out how over half of the current Bitcoin wallet is unable to spend their balance. This is mainly due to the balances being lower than the actual transaction fees. There is some backlash over this statement, as cheap transactions work just fine.

Conflicting opinions on Bitcoin fees are nothing new under the sun these days. We see debates like these pop up virtually every week. Surprisingly, BitPay CEO Tony Gallippi isnt doing much to alleviate the concerns. While his complaint on Twitter is about fees, his company is partially responsible for the high fees as well. In his opinion, the average transaction cost is now 100,000 Satoshis. That is not entirely true, even though it may be the average charged by BitPay.

BitPay CEO Complains About Fees

It is certainly possible to have low-fee transfers confirmed as well. Any decent service that allows users to set their own costs gets transactions confirmed pretty quickly. The services which did integrate SegWit seem to have very few issues when it comes to these fees. BitPay hasnt done so just yet at this point in time. Considering it is the largest Bitcoin payment processor, one would expect bigger and better things. So far, nothing has changed in this regard.

Gallippi further confirms over half of the existing Bitcoin wallets cant spend the balance. More specifically, 57.26% of all addresses have less than 100,000 Satoshi in their balance. That is a surprisingly low amount of money, even though its value has gone up steadily. With the current network fee of 30 S...

DASH AND MONERO SPINNING TOPS NEWSBTC

After last weeks mega rally DASH and Monero appears to be topping with equal bullish and bearish pressure. As noted, three consecutive dojis have formed over the past three days forming spinning tops. We still retain our bullish skew provided that prices reverse around key Fibonacci levels with a buy signal in place either in the daily or 4HR time frame.

Lets look at the charts:

NEM GAINS $0.08 AND CLOSES ABOVE THE SUPPORT LINE

alt coin NEM Daily chartNEMUSD Daily Chart for November 17, 2017

By moving $0.08 yesterday, NEM bulls confirmed the previous day bull candlestick and ended up closing above the support of $0.20.

Secondly, despite the upper long wick showing USD bulls, the fact that NEM prices are above the 20 period MA show that price action is pro-bulls.That is expected. In fact bulls should be ramping up their long positions in shorter time frames.

The short term goal for NEM bulls is to push prices above the main resistance trend lines above $0.22.

DASH TEST THE LOWER LIMIT OF THE BUY ZONE BUT CLOSES HIGHER

alt coin DASH Daily chart DASHUSD Daily Chart for November 17, 2017

If anything, DASH price action characteristics mean that over the past three days, price action have been moving within a $107 range. That is huge....

The dip was massive and the price trimmed most of its gains to trade back towards $0.2100.

The mentioned $0.2100 support area acted as a support along with the 100 hourly simple moving average.

A Blockchain Platform that will Holistically Confront the Existing Problems of the Gaming Industry NEWSBTC

When confronted with just a 50-50 chance of getting it right or wrong in an ecosystem that is filled with so many options, it is natural for an investors instinct to pick a more established and balanced venture with a track record ahead of an ordinary startup whose ideas are yet to be thoroughly tested in real life.

Decentralizing the video game economy

Already backed by a publicly listed company (iCandy Interactive Ltd, ASX:ICI) that has an existing relevant business with prominent institutional shareholders. The Nitro project will tokenize the video games economy that is backed by a successful award-winning game business that has been operating for many years. Having recently acquired game portfolio with 325 million users, the platform now boasts of 348 million users. This gives Nitro the chance to become most widespread cryptocurrency in the world, a proposition that provides a safety net against the risk of business plan execution, compared to other ICO projects have.

Simply defined, Nitro is an independent, blockchain-based online collaboration platform, which seeks to allow participation in the video-games economy, to connect various stakeholders, and to achieve growth for the overall Nitro network.

The game industry is confronted with a lot of complex challenges. Some of these challenges involves the sidelining of some supposed key players in the industry, leaving them to be ordinary stakeholders without the appropriate compensation for their inputs. This happens when the bigger financially buoyant  members of the gaming community organise a dominating structure which makes it harder for smaller players to meet up with certain standards, so their rewards are determined by the few whales in the form of game studios and institutional marketers.

A holistic approach towards a complex system

With Nitros thorough understanding of these situation and other complex challenges of the gaming industry, the company is building a blockchain based solution that will via a holistic approach solve end-to-end value-chain problems of the ecosystem. This approach puts into proper perspective the interests of all stakeholders of the video-game industry, i.e. gamers, game studios, publishers, and financiers.

These solutions are expected to be achieved by using the Nitro blockchains native token called NOX. Holders of this token will be able to participate in the economy of the video-games industry. Nitro will fund games voted in by NOX holders on the platform. Promising Game Studios will have access to much-needed funding and will be able to connect with gamers earlier on in the development cycle. This will greatly improve the quality and variety of games produced.

On the side of the gamers, they will be able to use the token as i...

Ethereum Cryptocurrency Almost $400 Million Vanishes "IndyWatch Feed World"

Thanks to a string of screw-ups and bugs, an unsuspecting developer recently took possession of an estimated $US390 million worth of the Ethereum cryptocurrency by accident. In an attempt to give back the money, however, the guy ended up locking up the funds permanently. Essentially, the money has just evaporated.

It turns out that hackers started the trouble getting into the cryptocurrency wallet service stealing about $42 million. To then patch the vulnerability to their block-chain technology, they introduced a bug that affected multi-signature wallets. These are wallets which require several people to enter keys before funds get transferred. This was intended to be top security for Ether which is the second largest cryptocurrency. Somehow, a guy called devops199 triggered the bug and took control of all multi-sig wallets unintendedly. Then devops199 attempted to reverse the process to give back the money which then triggered they bug. The result was the destruction all of the funds. The bug caused a chain reaction of events that locked all multi-signature wallets that cannot now be unlocked.

Welcome to the world of Cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin Cash Price Technical Analysis BCH/USD Breaks Down NEWSBTC

Key Points

  • Bitcoin cash price broke down and traded below the $1000 handle against the US Dollar.
  • This weeks highlighted bearish trend line with current resistance at $1050 is in place on the hourly chart of BCH/USD (data feed from Kraken).
  • The price is currently recovering but it will most likely face sellers near $1050 and $1100.

Bitcoin cash price traded lower sharply below $1000 against the US Dollar. BCH/USD is now under pressure and remains sell on rallies.

Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance

There was no major recovery in bitcoin cash price yesterday above $1200 against the US Dollar. The price started a sharp downside move and traded below a couple of important support levels like $1050 and $1000. The decline was strong and the price traded close to $800. A low was formed near $835 from where a recovery wave is initiated. The price has moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $1220 high to $835 low.

However, this weeks highlighted bearish trend line with current resistance at $1050 is in place on the hourly chart of BCH/USD. The same trend line resistance is near $1050. So, the previous support at $1050 may now act as a resistance for buyers in the near term. It also coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $1220 high to $835 low.

Bitcoin Cash Price Technical Analysis BCH USD

The current recovery is positive, but a break below $1050 was negative. Therefore, bitcoin cash price might continue to face sellers near $1050 and $1100. On the downside, an initial support is around $900. Below $900, the price will most likely retest the recent low of $835.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD The MACD for BCH/USD is still in the bearish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for BCH/USD is recovering from the overbought levels, but it is below 50.

Major Support Level $850

Major Resistance Level $1050

Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis for 11/17/2017 New Highs Yet Again! NEWSBTC

Bitcoin Price Key Highlights

  • Bitcoin price is at it again, breaking past the latest set of highs to close in on the $8000 handle.
  • Revisiting the Fib extension levels shows how high bitcoin price could go from here.
  • Price is already testing the 50% extension level but technical indicators show strengthening bullish momentum.

Bitcoin price is establishing new record highs and the Fibonacci extension levels show the next upside targets.

Technical Indicators Signals

The 100 SMA is above the longer-term 200 SMA on the daily time frame so the path of least resistance is to the upside. Moreover, the gap between the moving averages is widening to reflect stronger bullish pressure.

In that case, bitcoin price could aim for the 61.8% extension at $8638 or head to the 76.4% extension at $9352. The full extension is located at $10,506.54 and several analysts actually expect bitcoin to reach the $10,000 levels before year end.

Stochastic is on the move up to show that buyers are in control of price action. RSI has more room to climb so bitcoin price could keep following suit until both indicators turn from oversold levels.

Market Factors

The rise in volumes, supported by increasing investor interest, has been seen as the main factor spurring gains. According to CoinMarketCap.com, cryptocurrency markets have seen in excess of $10 billion in trading volume in the past 24 hours.

XRP Surges as AMEX Teams up with Ripple NEWSBTC

XRP Ripple: XRP had a rollercoaster ride on Thursday on the news that American Express has teamed up with Ripple for cross-border payments.

This partnership with Ripple will enable instant blockchain-based payments for U.S. corporate customers sending funds to U.K.-based businesses that bank with Santander U.K.

How did XRP Ripple React?

XRP surged to the one-month high level of $0.2668 as the Ripple-AMEX partnership news broke out. However, it quickly erased most of the gains and closed Thursdays trading session at the key pivot level of 0.2233. It then started Fridays Asian session below the Ichimoku cloud. The future cloud on Ichimoku Kinko Hyos daily setup remains flat, although slightly bearish.

XRP-Ripple-Technical-AnalysisXRP-Ripple-Technical-Analysis

With this, we could expect XRPs range trade to continue for a bit more longer against the US dollar. The median range price for the pair appears to be between the 23% and 61% Fibonacci retracement levels at 0.1890 and 0.2790 respectively.

The Fibonacci setup retraces the major downtrend XRP saw after its ICO price of 0.3729, all the way down to the all-time-low price of 0.13.

Tell Me More about the Ripple-AMEX Collaboration

The Ripple-AMEX blockchain project allows payments made by American Express business customers on its  FX International Payments (FXIP) platform to be routed through Ripples enterprise blockchain network.

With this, Ripple believes that its cryptocurrency, XRP, will come into play as a means of speeding up payments later on down the line. This could explain the initial surge as the news broke out.

This marks one of the first major uses of the blockchain industry. Financial firms hope the technology can reduce the cost and complexity of processes such as securities settlement and international payments.

In a statement Ripples CEO Brad Garlinghouse said that transfers that used to take days will be completed in real time.

Coinfirm Partners with TokenMarket to Bring Effective Anti-Money Laundering Process to ICOs NEWSBTC

Coinfirm and TokenMarket announced today a collaboration to bring effective anti-money laundering to the blockchain space and to ICOs.

Token sales have been a hot topic in the tech and finance world and yet the regulatory aspect and need of an end-to-end service have been seriously lacking for this growing fundraising activity. With $3.4bn raised this year through token sales, businesses are seeing a need to self-regulate through the adoption of AML practices. To further complicate this challenge, jurisdictions are adopting varying definitions and regulatory standards towards the process of token sales. Now, Coinfirm and TokenMarket are taking the necessary steps to stay ahead of the curve by ensuring the highest standards of regulatory compliance for token sales.

Coinfirm, known as a leading blockchain regtech and compliance company, has been providing compliance services for both blockchain and traditional industry players around the world through the Coinfirm AML/CTF Platform. Recently, Coinfirm announced that they were introducing a streamlined and automated AML/CTF solution for Ethereum and associated Tokens and ICOs.

As the premier platform for ICOs, TokenMarket provides a full token sale advisory service underpinned by a firm commitment to raising standards across the entire token ecosystem. TokenMarket promotes the need for those running token sales to seek solid legal advice to understand the KYC and AML requirements and as needed, adopt a solution like Coinfirm.

We are currently experiencing unprecedented levels of interest in our token sale services and we are thrilled to be working with some of the highest profile blockchain companies to help scale up their businesses. With that comes a responsibility to ensure that we are advising our clients with the latest and best possible technology and information regarding regulation. Coinfirm represents some of the best in the regulatory space and we are very excited to be partnering with them and look forward to working together to safeguard the future of token sales, Ransu Salovaara, TokenMarket CEO, said.

Coinfirms CEO Pawel Kuskowski also expressed his enthusiasm for the importance of the partnership. TokenMarket represents the standard in the token sale environment, while we represent the same for regtech and compliance for blockchain. Without two entities like us coming together, the question of regulatory compliance in commercial applications towards this revolutionary process remains quite grey and prevents it from reaching its potential in the traditional and mass markets. Were here to help bring that security, confidence, and growth to the process. said Kuskowski.

New Wallet Rahakott Will Make the Cryptocurrency World More Accessible NEWSBTC

On November 12, 2017, a new project, Rahakott, was launched. Rahakott is a crytocurrency wallet that allows anyone to send or receive digital currencies and to monitor their balance. The surge in demand for cryptocurrencies drives demand for solutions that are more convenient and simpler to implement.

Digital currencies do not exist in physical form and are not stored in a single place. All that actually exist are transaction records in a blockchain. Therefore, when Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies are transferred, the ownership rights to a certain amount are simply rewritten to your wallets address. However, to take control of that currency, the private key for your wallet has to match the public address to which the currency has been allocated. If they match, a withdrawal happens at one wallet and a deposit at the other. And all of this is just a record in the blockchain.

The market does not currently offer that many choices of suitable, easy to use wallets that would give both security and speed in processing transactions, comments Akke Svenson, the wallets founder. We have had the audacity to address all the existing issues with the Rahakott wallet.

The key issue is registration. It is on this step that some users simply cannot make sense of the system and go on to look elsewhere. The Rahakott service offers simple registration without email or phone, with just a mnemonic phrase.
Despite the simplicity of registration, the waller is well-protected from hacking by two-factor authentication. In addition, users that conduct business using cryptocurrency can set up subaccounts for their clients and generate requests for payment. Rahakott has functionality that allows batch generation of a large number of addresses. Miners have the ability to set a wallet address as to where they would like to receive their reward for mining.

The wallets are algoristic, meaning that a new address is generated for each transaction, which increases user anonymity. The existence of an API allows for the wallets functionality to be integrated into external web services and software.

Rahakott went live on November 12, says Akke Svenson. We plan to keep perfecting the services functionality as we go. Our next step is to integrate currency exchanges, so that clients can choose the best exchange rates when converting to other cryptocurrencies and fiat currencies (P2P exchange). Our service serves to disrupt the status quo in the modern financial system, which is riddled with limitations, fees, and difficulties in processing transactions. We find ourselves at the starting point of a new, independent, and transparent financial future. And were building that world together!

Why You Should Invest in Monero NEWSBTC

Monero is one of the fastest growing cryptocurrencies in the world. It is highly secure and has been able to maintain the confidentiality of its coins and the coin owners. This currency uses top-notch technological systems which make it impossible to trace any of its transactions. All the Monero coins are identical and can be exchanged to uphold the privacy of its owners. This usually termed as being fungible.

The receipts for this cryptocurrency are kept public, but they are anonymous hence impossible to trace the origin. You can make deposits or transfer funds without a trace. The currency utilizes a ring signature system which enables it to even hide the value of the Monero cash transferred. This is an ideal currency for people who need an untraceable media of transacting cash. It is the most private crypto and is highly safe from any form of interference.

Monero is a newer cryptocurrency than Bitcoin, but it has been able to compete favorably. It uses the CryptoNote protocol as opposed to the bitcoin protocol. It is highly preferred compared to bitcoin because of its heightened priority on the privacy of its users. Also, Monero has a higher possibility of remaining competitive in the cryptocurrency market. This is because it is on the StackExchange which totally increases its already booming public source code repository.

Monero also enables you to carry out larger transactions. It does not have a block size limit which is present in other currencies. Lack of this limit enables it to carry out many transactions in one second compared to others such as Bitcoin.

In the next few years, exciting games such as slots will be played using Monero. Perhaps the bonuses will be given in these terms, and gambling will be more thrilling. Here is the list of free slot games with bonus rounds.

Rapid Growth

Another reason why you should invest in Monero is that it is exhibiting a rapid growth rate. The number of people embracing its use has been on the rise since it was initiated. This is because it has shown an undoubted capability to keep the financial information of its users private. People have different reasons for concealing their financial info, and this has to be respected. Monero makes it very possible for them.

However, there is an unfounded accusation that associates Monero currency with illegal money such as drug trafficking money. This is not a money laundering scheme or a get rich quick mechanism as suggested by some quarters. It is simply a cryptocurrency that ensures the privacy of its users. What they decide to do with their money is up to them.

Monero is an excellent investment for the long term because more people are demanding for the privacy of their money. It has continued to prove that it can upho...

How to Get Free Bitcoins NEWSBTC

At the time of this writing, 1 Bitcoin was equivalent to 4,425 dollars. Some analysts believe that by the end of 2017, it will pass the $ 5,000 barrier. We wont be talking about these discussions in this article, but we can guarantee you this: Bitcoin is one of the most suitable tools to invest. Although you need a solid capital to enter the BTC market, you can get BTC even without any initial capital if you know how to do it. Perhaps you can play at a Bitcoin Casino with your winnings and double up your capital, who knows? We will tell you how to do this, but first, we have to talk about satoshi. In order to win free BTC, you first need to accumulate the satoshi( sat for short).

You can think of satoshi as the penny of Bitcoin. A satoshi is the hundredth of a millionth of one BTC. At the moment, 22.622 satoshi is equal to 1 USD. Likewise, 100,000,000 satoshi corresponds to 1 BTC, that is, 4,425 dollars. It is important that you understand what satoshi is because the faucet sites distribute it for free.

What Are Faucet Sites?

Designed by Gavin Andresen in 2010, the faucet sites are places that give you free sat for the fulfillment of a certain task. These tasks are variable, sometimes you are asked to decipher a captcha, and sometimes you only need to spend a certain amount of time on the website. They say they intend to introduce people to BTC, but the main purpose is to drive traffic. Who would not want to visit a website where you can earn free money? These sites are full of ads, they make money with those. (For the same reason, if you use an AdBlocker, you cannot visit most of them.) You spend time on the website, the owners of the website earn money from advertisements, and they give a small amount of satoshi as a gift. However, no faucet website gives more than 1,000 sat.

Other sources of income are referral links. If you are a member of a faucet site, you are getting a special, personalized link. If another person subscribes to the site using this link, the amount of satoshi you earn is increasing. It is a kind of pyramid scheme, and it is still unclear whether it is legal or not. Because you are not required to make an investment, it is enough to spend time on the website. Even with a capital of only 3 BTC, you can also set up a faucet site. In the long run, the income you get from advertising will be more than the satoshi you distribute.

Are They Legal?

In fact, the question you need to ask here is whether they really give free satoshi or not. The good news is, yes, they really do. The bad news is that the amount of satoshi you can get is very small and it is deposited to an intermediary system (like faucethub). So by using faucet system, you wont be entering the...

Blockchain Giant Cashaa Ventures into a Strategic Partnership with Bubblo NEWSBTC

Cashaa, the worlds first blockchain based online banking platform has announced its partnership with Bubblo, an AI-powered app to find Top 5 hangout venues in a specific region.

A simplified user experience in a legally compliant way

Cashaa, a next-generation online banking for billions, seeks to leverage the blockchain industry with its pioneering solution to connect the West and East along with financial inclusion, hence creating a fair value and a win-win solution for both worlds.

Cashaa is building a powerful wallet with a spectrum of digital financial services to enable its community to deposit, spend, lend, borrow & transfer money anywhere in the world to any card. Thus, creating liquidity for cryptocurrencies and enabling them to be transferred worldwide in a fast, secure and authorised manner.

Cashaa has launched its Token Generation Event (TGE), with CAS token built as an EIP-20 (former ERC-20) token on the Ethereum blockchain. CAS are being sold at $0.10 each in a crowdsale that is open now until 5 December. Adding to its spree of partnerships recently, Cashaa announces its 4th strategic partnership with Bubblo as a cross-marketing platform.

Paving a way to push cryptocurrencies into the mainstream

Bubblo, the worlds first decentralized Food, Beverage, and Retail review and payment platform ecosystem to decentralize the reviews that form their recommendation engine. Bubblo harnesses the power of IBMs Watson supercomputer to deliver AI, allowing users to filter venues by price, type, cuisine etc. Live videos and photos available within BubbloApp give visitors a feel of the venue before they actually go there.

Recently Bubblo is seeking to gamify its review system, decentralising the BubbloApp with blockchain technology, thus incentivising its users who check-in at places and receive blockchain rewards for submitting reviews. Users can pay for their food and drinks with CAS tokens and in return Restaurants, Bars and Clubs can pay for their supplies to Food & Beverage companies, who also can pay for advertising on Bubblo thus completing this ecosystem.

Now, Bubblo has taken a strategic blockchain initiative with Cashaa, to integrate blockchain technology and utilise CAS in its app, enabling users to transact directly through the app. As Bubblo ventures into cryptocurrencies to incentivize reviews, this ground-breaking collaboration with Cashaa will power an efficient cross-marketing strategy.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: BTC Pushes All-time Highs and Tests Historic Resistance Bitcoin Magazine

Bitcoin Price Analysis

Throughout the life of bitcoins two-year bull run, it has been confined within two macro trends: one parabolic and one linear both on a logarithmic scale:

Figure_1.JPGFigure 1: BTC-USD, 1-Day Candles, Macro Trend

The parabolic envelope (black curves) has confined the entire bull run throughout the last two years. Over the weekend, we saw a test of the lower curve that proved to be proper support and propelled the market into a bounce that now has the market testing the upper linear trendline (purple lines) at the time of this article:
Figure_2.JPGFigure 2: BTC-USD, 2-Hour Candles, Test of Upper Trendline

As the bitcoin market approaches the upper trendline, the price action will coincide with a test of the previous all-time high. Expect this to be a point of resistance with possible market turbulence. However, if we manage to break that resistance level and hold support above the trendline, there is no clear resistance until we test the parabolic envelope in the upper $8,000s.

If we look at the macro indicators for this move, we see some signs that have proven to be indications of short-term rallies leading to corrections:

Figure_3.JPGFigure 3: BTC-USD, 1-Day Candles, Bollinger Band Trend

The last two corrections bitcoin has seen came on the tail of a minor pullback that rebounded to a new all-time high. The one-day candle trend is, so far, showing a repeated pattern that has led into a reversal each time it tested the upper parabolic curve. A rounding of the Bollinger bands during an upward move (shown in purple) is a forecast for decreased upward volatility th...

The Lightning Network Now Supports Transactions Across Blockchains Bitcoin Magazine

lnbtclte.jpg

Although still in testing phase, the lightning network can now be used to send transactions across different blockchains. The Lightning Labs development team successfully swapped testnet bitcoin for testnet litecoin through a lightning channel this week: ownership of the coins changed hands, while no transaction was recorded on either blockchain.

Previous atomic swaps that I have done were on-chain, and had the on-chain limitations of slow [transactions] and high transaction fees, Litecoin creator Charlie Lee told Bitcoin Magazine, referring to an older trick to exchange different types of coins trustlessly. Off-chain atomic swaps are significantly better. They are instant, [have] low fees, and better protect ones privacy.

The successful test paves the way for trustless cryptocurrency exchanges, near-seamless multi-coin payment processors and more.

Bitcoin and Litecoin

The lightning network is the highly anticipated second-layer payment network to be deployed on top of Bitcoin. And as an open protocol, its relatively easy to deploy lightning network support for other cryptocurrencies that are forked from Bitcoins codebase like Litecoin.

Interestingly, if the lightning network runs on different blockchains, these chains can effectively be linked together. If one or several peers on the network are willing to take one type of coin and forward another, its possible to send bitcoins on one end of a channel that will end up as the e...

A new level of working with data is the advantage of smart mining NEWSBTC

The data science is based on strict analytical evidence and it works with structured and non-structured data. Everything that is related to the selection, preparation, and analysis is included in the science of data.

Machine learning is closely related to the science of data. In a simple way, this is an opportunity to learn a system or an algorithm to get different impressions from the masses. Researchers use machine learning techniques to automate the solution of some problems. These systems are very necessary for working with very complex projects. For example, to find out which country the happiest people live in, scientists defined smiles in the photos uploaded to Instagram. The tasks of deep learning are often quite complex, requiring considerable computing power for learning and using models.

Neuromation is the blockchain platform for synthetic data and deep learning of neural networks that creates artificial worlds where artificial intelligence algorithms will be learning with help of simulated sensor input data.

In these artificial worlds, there is also an almost endless supply of beautifully classified data for learning. AI plays as in video games and learns how to perform specific tasks in the real world, the creators of the project explain.

Miners or owners of Neuromation computing power provide an excellent opportunity to use their equipment for useful computing and real-world tasks. Based on the platform, users will also be able to trade data libraries and models. The service makes it possible to use models and algorithms based on deep learning, that are rather complicated for self-realization, connected primarily with the processing of images and natural languages.

Our preliminary estimates indicate that miners will earn up 3 to 5 times more mining Neurotokens versus mining cryptocurrency. Miners will not be engaged in Neuromation tasks 100% of the time so it will be an efficiency boost to the existing setup. You can see the difference in effective yield below for similarly configured rigs, one running cryptocurrency mining algorithm and one running Deep Learning / Data Rendering tasks. Type of Computing Yield/Time Ether Mining $ 7 8 USD/Day Amazon Deep Learning $ 3 4 USD/Hour.

Due to the linking service providers with the platform, Neuromation has every chance to become a favorable ecosystem for any AI application. One of the key goals of Neuromation platform is to become the main center of artificial intelligence services for international business.

We intend to become a global pool of resources in the sphere of artificial data, constantly replenishing library, which will have data sets for any possible use, the white paper of the company says.

The platform has already begun the pre-sale of its neuro-tokens on October 25, 2017. The massive sale of neuro-tokens begins on November 28, 2017

A Blockchain Platform that will Holistically Confront the Existing Problems of the Gaming Industry NEWSBTC

When confronted with just a 50-50 chance of getting it right or wrong in an ecosystem that is filled with so many options, it is natural for an investors instinct to pick a more established and balanced venture with a track record ahead of an ordinary startup whose ideas are yet to be thoroughly tested in real life.

Decentralizing the video game economy

Already backed by a publicly listed company (iCandy Interactive Ltd, ASX: ICI) that has an existing relevant business with prominent institutional shareholders. The Nitro project will tokenize the video games economy that is backed by a successful award-winning game business that has been operating for many years. Having recently acquired a game portfolio with 325 million users, the platform now boasts of 348 million users. This gives Nitro the chance to become most widespread cryptocurrency in the world, a proposition that provides a safety net against the risk of business plan execution, compared to other ICO projects have.

Simply defined, Nitro is an independent, blockchain-based online collaboration platform, which seeks to allow participation in the video-games economy, to connect various stakeholders, and to achieve growth for the overall Nitro network.

The game industry is confronted with a lot of complex challenges. Some of these challenges involve the sidelining of some supposed key players in the industry, leaving them to be ordinary stakeholders without the appropriate compensation for their inputs. This happens when the bigger financially buoyant members of the gaming community organize a dominating structure which makes it harder for smaller players to meet up with certain standards, so their rewards are determined by the few whales in the form of game studios and institutional marketers.

A holistic approach towards a complex system

With Nitros thorough understanding of these situation and other complex challenges of the gaming industry, the company is building a blockchain based solution that will via a holistic approach solve end-to-end value-chain problems of the ecosystem. This approach puts into proper perspective the interests of all stakeholders of the video-game industry, i.e. gamers, game studios, publishers, and financiers.

These solutions are expected to be achieved by using the Nit...

As Traders Array of Assets Widens, Bitcoin Looks Less Tempting "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Cryptocurrency-For-Trading

Bitcoin, the original electronic peer-to-peer digital currency system, was created in 2009. Along with it came blockchain technology, which fintech firms have since started using for purposes outside of simply mining more currency, or rivaling bank payment systems. While bitcoin remains by far the best known and most valuable cryptocurrency, some have started to express doubts about its future. Even as its price-per-coin soars, many see signs that point to bitcoin losing its popularity. One of the biggest catalysts of this notion is the number of new and more widely applicable uses that innovators have found for both blockchain and new alternative coins.

Bitcoin is in Retrograde

Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency with a strong presence in the global market and the fintech industry. Though it continues to rise in value, this digital coin is not keeping up with other newer assets on the market. It appears bitcoin is losing its touch with the trading community. Whether as a currency itself or as part of an ETF or other index, bitcoin may have a challenging time keeping up.

Today, almost any firm can have its own initial token sale (ITS) to raise money for a service that will incorporate these alternative coins down the road. This move lets companies garner investments in their idea without having to cede creative control, and it creates better engagement with their new platforms. These tokens derive value both from how popular they are (like bitcoin), but also have a more unique value proposition (use in a service).

Additionally, the very system on which bitcoin relies has far outstripped the usefulness of bitcoin itself. Banks, online exchanges, eCommerce websites, and countless other firms are...

All-Time High: Bitcoin Shrugs Off the Competition Once Again NEWSBTC

The price of a single Bitcoin exceeded its previous all-time high again today. Seemingly shrugging off doubt over its position as top-dog in the cryptocurrency world, the going rate of each unit of the digital currency reached an unprecedented 7,794 according to market price watch website, Coinmarketcap. This puts it ever-closer to the next major psychological milestone of $8,000.

Bitcoin has had a turbulent month thus far. Its previous run up in price was brought to a sudden end following the news that the planned hard fork to introduce larger blocks to the main chain would not go ahead. Many believed that the fear and uncertainty created during the confusion over the planned upgrade known as Segwit2x meant that wed seen this years all-time high for the currency last week and it would struggle to surpass this level again in 2017. However, as is often the case with Bitcoin, the doubt was short-lived. The price rebounded fast from its monthly low point on Sunday of around $5,580 back to record-breaking highs in just four days.

As youd expect, the all-time highs in price coincide with an all-time high in interest in the digital currency. Google Trends shows that online searches for the term Bitcoin follows the price chart rather closely with spikes in interest this year at the end of May, beginning and middle of August, mid-September, and of course, throughout October and into November. Meanwhile, a look at which regions are searching the most for the term Bitcoin probably invites more questions than it answers.

Introducing LevelNet the ICO that Aims to Transform Cybersecurity NEWSBTC

Cybersecurity is quickly becoming one of the most important industries out there.

Its no surprise, either anyone who stays up to date with the online world will be only too aware of the chaotic goings-on of recent times.

Gone are the days when all users had to worry about were Trojan horses and spam emails. Large-scale, highly sophisticated attacks take place with terrifying frequency nowadays, and theyre on the rise.

And in Blockchain, new promising cybersecurity ventures like Gladius.io are now emerging.

Cybercrime costs are expected to hit $6 trillion by 2020, which has a lot to do with the growing volume of data online. The Internet of Things (IoT), devices like webcams and portable speakers that connect to the internet, is also a risk factor as these are often poorly defended and a prime target for hackers.

The number of IoT devices has been predicted to reach 200 million by 2020, so defense in this area is a massive concern.

With all these new developments and worrying predictions, cybersecurity companies have had their work cut out for them. The industry has been going through a pretty impressive growth spurt and is projected to be worth $170 billion by 2020.

Whats more, spending in weak areas is on the rise too. IoT spending is forecast to reach $547.2 million by 2018, up from just $231 billion in 2014.

Worrying weaknesses

However, there are some gaping holes in the security industry. A spine-chilling study by Harvard Business Review found that even the best antivirus software only catches around 5% of new threats.

The best performances by software only manage to deal with 80-90% of real threats, and Symantec found that three-quarters of all websites have exploitable vulnerabilities.

Its all pretty unsettling stuff, and unfortunately, its just the tip of the iceberg. With the current rapid pace of technological development, lots of the near-fu...

CommerceBlock Announces Partnership with CG Blockchain NEWSBTC

CommerceBlock is proud to announce the beginning of its fruitful partnership with CG Blockchain. As a part of this partnership, the blockchain platform will be working on the new FUNDStore project, providing an interface to whats considered as the worlds most secure public blockchain network. By implementing its novel tools within the FUNDStore ecosystem for blockchain based software solutions for hedge funds and pension funds, CommerceBlock will empower the clients of CG Blockchain to interact and conduct business under strict privacy. These transactions in question can be conducted over various public blockchains.

The partnership can be considered as a significant milestone for both the parties and Bob Bonomo, the President of CG Blockchain has reiterated in a recent quote. He said,

FUNDStore/CG Blockchain is excited to partner with CommerceBlock as it offers unique public blockchain tools for the $3 trillion hedge fund industry through its technical expertise around public blockchain infrastructure.

The announcement also marks a twist in the narrative so far, where the mainstream financial platforms have been maintaining a safe distance form Bitcoin and public blockchain technologies. By creating a bridge between both sectors, CommerceBlock is opening a whole new avenue for the overall development of the global financial infrastructure. The partnership also coincides with new developments, being brought about by CME Group and its planned Bitcoin exchange-traded instruments.

CG Blockchain

ComplianceGuard offers pension fund investors the tools they need to make sure that hedge fund managers do not change transaction or data. CG Blockchain combines an unalterable blockchain transaction trail with ongoing compliance monitoring to decrease the risk of hedge fund fraud at the same time protect the reputation of pension fund managers. In the current world of high measures of scrutiny and regulations, pension fund investors need accurate transaction records that can be verified as well as the compliance data from the funds they invest in. The blockchain will permanently record hedge fund compliance on a distributed ledger.

FUNDStore

FUNDStore enables users and pension fund providers to manage all stages of the transactions and interactions through the platform. It is designed in a way that all information, user funds, and user details are controlled by the client, meaning that at no point does CommerceBlock or CG Blockchain have access to this data. CG Blockchain partnering with CommerceBlock now seeks to increase hedge fund accountability and transparency of the transactions. It aims at delivering security to pension fund investors through the blockchain technology. This partnership will set the new standards for pension and hedge fund investment.

Since the Bitcoin blockchain technically forked on Bitcoin block 491407, anyone who held bitcoin (BTC) on October 24, 2017 should have an equivalent amount of BTG attributed to their Bitcoin private keys.

In our beginners guide to surviving the Bgold and SegWit2x forks, we explained how to secure your private keys so you could be sure to access your BTG and B2X. The B2X fork has since been suspended by the leaders of that project, however, and it currently seems very unlikely to happen in any serious way.

As such, this follow-up article explains how you can claim (and potentially use) your BTG only your BTG.

Be Careful

Good news: Bitcoin Gold enforces strong replay protection. This means you cant accidentally spend your BTC when you mean to spend BTG or vice versa.

As such, if you dont care about BTG at all right now, you dont need to do a thing. You can just keep using bitcoin as you always have. If you ever change your mind (and dont lose your Bitcoin private keys in the meantime), you can still claim your BTG at any point in the future.

Bitcoin Price Watch; Heres What We Want To See Tonight NEWSBTC

On our coverage of the bitcoin price earlier this morning, we noted that we were hoping to see quite a lot of volatility during the session today. When we get volatility, it gives us an opportunity to get into the markets as the key levels we set up in advance of our strategy execution get breached and in turn our entries get signaled. What we also like to see, however, outside of just volatility, is some momentum post-breakout. What that means is that we like to see price signal an entry but then subsequently continue to run in the direction of the break.

As it turns out, we did manage to get some of the type of action we were looking for. Things moved pretty fast early on and were able to jump in quickly as and when our position got signaled.

Were about to close out the session in Europe and move into the US session this evening. With any luck, well see a continuation of the action weve seen today, moving forward. If it doesnt happen, its not too big of a deal we can trade intrarange if we dont see any sustained momentum but it would be a bonus if it does.

So, lets get our levels in place so that we can be ready if and when things move. As ever, take a quick look at the chart below before we get started so as to get an idea where things stand. Its a one-minute candlestick chart and its got our range overlaid in green.

As the chart shows, the range we are looking at for the session comes in as defined by support to the downside at 7424 and resistance to the upside at 7515.

If we see a close below support, well jump in short towards 7380. Conversely, a close above resistance will have us in towards 7585.

Lets see how things play out.

Practice Safe Signing Gavin Andresen

Are you holding some cryptocurrency secured by a paper wallet in a safe deposit box? Good for you! Thats an excellent way to keep it safe.

But then your currency splits. Last week that piece of paper was worth 100 FooCoins, and this week it is worth 100 FooCoins and 100 BarCoins.

If you think one side of the split is a terrible idea, doomed to fail, you might be tempted to go get your paper wallet, sweep the coins into a wallet that supports the bad coin, and move them to an exchange to cash out (or maybe buy more of the good coin).

Great! I dont give investment advice. But I will encourage you to sweep the good coins, first, and move them to a new wallet. Dont be lazy and just write BadCoins swept Nov 11, 2017 on the paper wallet and put it back in the vault.

Why?

Because sooner or later I think somebody will create a BadCoin (or a wallet) with a transaction signature algorithm designed to leak your private keys in the signature data that is broadcast to the world. A NewCoin will launch starting with the ledger of an OldCoin and a spiffy new signature scheme for full replay protection or to be more quantum resistant or to be more scalable or with 150% more cowbell. OldCoin holders will rush to sell it to get some free money and a week or three later theyll lose much more than they gained as their OldCoins are spent out from under them.

Unless you have the technical ability to audit the code yourself for subliminal signature channels, every time you use your private key(s) to sign a transaction or message, you are implicitly trusting the software (or hardware) developers even if you jump through hoops and sign transactions offline.

So go ahead and dump those BadCoins but if there is a chance the BadCoin developers are sophisticated and evil, move your GoodCoins first.

Forking Hell: There are a Lot of Hard Forks Coming to Bitcoin NEWSBTC

As with any big news in cryptocurrency, the calling off of Segwit2x, as the proposal had come to be referred to as, led to a lot of volatility in the markets. Firstly, the price of Bitcoin soared to all-time highs before topping out and starting to decline. Many alt-coins had a brief pump as money started to flood out of Bitcoins market cap. However, the biggest gainer from the chaos that ensued was undoubtedly Bitcoin Cash. From its price point of between $600 and $650 at the news of the Segwit2x fork being called off, it had surged to an alt-time high of over $2,300 on the early hours of Sunday morning. It has since settled to just over $1,000 at the time of writing.

Some are claiming it as a massive success story for Bitcoin Cash. However, its hard to tell how high the market cap of the original chain would be if the scaling debate had long been solved through consensus. Its therefore impossible to tell how much money would have entered or left various markets in the months since the BCH fork had it not taken place at all.

Genaro Network, a Decentralized Cloud Service with a Social Touch NEWSBTC

Genaro Network is the first of its kind blockchain project comprised of a Turing-complete public chain integrated with a decentralized storage network. The network runs on its own public blockchain to create an entire ecosystem on which decentralized applications (known as DAPPS)can be built. The platform offers a great deal of flexibility by allowing the deployment of smart contracts while providing a permanent and private method of storing their data, videos, documents and other file types. It is also highly secure compared to other conventional systems and can be used by other blockchain solution providers as a replacement for cloud-based storage.

The Genaro ecosystem is designed to provide a range of advantages for Internet of Things and Big Data implementations along with both added transparency of records and privacy of data for DAPPs and their users. The data is securely stored on the Genaro Network, and it can only be decrypted by using the private key belonging to the file owner.

The Genaro team has proposed to build a network on which many applications can be developed, which is the opposite approach the existing cloud network infrastructure today, which is a combination of different applications.

Technically speaking, by creating a hybrid of SPoR (Sentinel Proof of Retrievability) and PoS (Proof of Stake), the platform aims to offer a highly scalable and efficient solution that can overcome the shortcomings of the existing distributed storage and sharing solutions. A combination of smart contracts and decentralized storage makes use of unused storage space and processing power contributed by the network participants. Genaro thereby eliminates the need for high-end data centers with centralized storage, which are more prone to security breaches, not to mention the need for additional resources to set up such a system. It also ensures the almost fool-proof protection of intellectual property.

Mission

The Genaro Network aims to drive the evolution of blockchain 3.0, the next generation of blockchain applications platform, to make DAPPs as useful as Internet APPs.

At the same time, Genaro believes in adding value to society, which it upholds by giving back to the community. This combination paves the way for Genaro to set the foundation for the future of cryptocurrency technology and its implementation Blockchain 3.0. In doing so, the project puts the power of controlling and managing the data back into the hands of its owners rather than large media and advertising networks, for example.

The Social Cause

The creators of Genaro believe in community development. Apart from building the first Turing-complete public chain with a decentralized storage network, they are actively involved in supporting the tech community by introducing them to the benefits of a Blockchain 3.0 paradigm.

Universa rates as Stable+ NEWSBTC

Well-known specialized portal icorating.com has prepared a comprehensive analysis of Universa token sale with a detailed study of its technical features, project team and future perspectives. As has been mentioned before that the rating Stable+ means Universa is strong enough for people to trust it: We recommend participating in the Universa ICO to long-term investors. Tokens will gradually grow in price during the crowdsale, says the expert.

In the first place, the Universa authors note its advantages above other blockchain projects. Unlike many crypto start-ups based on the existing protocols, Universa team focuses on developing their own, fundamentally different blockchain, which could easily work with any other protocol only using important data and connecting it within the developed protocol framework. Universa offers personal smart contracts for performing various types of operations for any type of business. All records on the blockchain will be decentralized, and operations can be performed asynchronously. There will also be no miming. All these is achieved through the DAG technology.

No mining implies that Universa is a currency-free protocol. UTN token has been created in order to pay commissions to the nodes. The Universa blockchain protocol is based on smart contract similar to the one of Ethereum. Along with the possibility to connect with other smart contracts, thus creating tree structure operations, Universa smart contracts can be stored offline until the data is transferred to the network. Universa describes itself as a project offering a crypto-protocol for the common use, able to compete with the most influential cryptocurrencies. The founders of Universa see it as an innovative platform for multi-protocol smart-contracts.

For the project successful development, it will be enough to raise a smaller amount of funds as compared to the stated hardcap of $ 99 million. In fact, the already collected sum of $ 10 million is sufficient for Universa to achieve its plans. This minimum amount is reflected in the detailed budget plan, and allows the team to implement all basic functionality. In conclusion, the rating agency suggested once again that the announced functionality of Universa blockchain protocol will be in demand in the near future, so the project seems to be gaining ground rather quickly.

Prime-Ex Perpetual ICO Goes Live on November 15th NEWSBTC

Blockchain-based real estate platform Prime-Ex Perpetual is going to launch the token sale of its institutionalized tokens on November 15th, 2017.

PEX-Tokens will be available to be purchased from Prime-Ex Perpetuals official website at the rate of $1.00 USD-equivalent per unit. Prime-Ex Perpetual has already sold over 3 million PEX-Tokens in a pre-ICO round. It started on November 1, 2017, and ended on November 8, 2017.  Prime-Ex Perpetual has secured its minimum targets of the campaign.

With a successful pre-ICO round behind, the next ICO round could be even more successful. In it, Prime-Ex Perpetual will issue a total of roughly 22 million PEX-Tokens for public sale.  This is a terrific opportunity to purchase PEX-Tokens ahead of its distribution to the DEX Exchange near the beginning of December.

The raised funds are building residential real estate in Panama that will prove to be the backbone of Prime-Ex Perpetuals ecosystem in the future. To those who are unaware of this ecosystem, it is a tokenized system that allows expats to purchase residential properties with simple financing and mortgage payment options. Here, PEX-Tokens will prove to be this economys centerpiece, allowing easy and quick payment settlements, while incentivizing homebuyers at the same time.

For holders, PEX-Tokens will also prove to be an investment option as they will keep earning 80% of the companys audited net profit every year.

Prime-Ex Perpetuals CEO, John Gilbert, stated:

Crossing over the 2,500,000 PEX-Token thresholds for token sales was a major achievement for us. We are eager to get out there and begin building the homes today that will be the backbone of our ecosystem tomorrow. Prime-Ex Perpetual will now start implementing its unique residential real estate ecosystem and breaking ground on the first houses in Panama.

The First Lumens ATM is Introduced in Singapore During the Fintech Festival NEWSBTC

Cryptocurrency ATMs are a vital part of the ecosystem right now. these machines allow people to conveniently purchase Bitcoin and select altcoins. It now appears there is at least one ATM which also supports Stellar Lumens. Until now, there was no indication XLM support would be integrated by any companies. Most of the details are still secret, but the machine seemingly works just fine.

It is good to see more currencies getting ATM support these days. More specifically, a lot of companies focus on Bitcoin and a few different altcoins. Stellar Lumens are not on that list so far. That doesnt prevent the team from showcasing their XLM ATM at the Singapore Fintech Festival, though. Opening a new fiat gateway for XLM is a big step forward.All cryptocurrencies need more liquidity, especially in the world of fiat currencies.

The First Stellar Lumens ATM is Born

In a way, Stellar got a big leg up over Ripple in this regard. Whereas most speculators bought some XRP this year, they largely ignored XLM. It now seems obtaining Lumens will be a lot easier in this regard. Although this machine may not necessarily become accessible by the public, it sets an interesting precedent.  How all of this will play out after the festival, remains to be determined, though.

Most of the specifics of this Lumens ATM have yet to be worked out. We dont know who built it or how it works exactly. It may be a two-way machine, for all we know. Nor is there any indication as to when and how many of these machines will...

Revain Announces Release of the First Test Version of the Platform NEWSBTC

Impartiality of opinions available on the platform is achieved by the fact that only well-reasoned reviews will be stored. This is achieved by deploying blockchain and IBM Watson AI. Upon completion of testing period and launching the platform at its full capacity, a review hash will be getting stored in blockchain, which stands for its inalterability and no chance of making changes or deletion.

The platform is appealing for both startups that already did ICO, ITO or crowdsale and different user segments. These include crypto-analysts, token holders and potential token buyers. New businesses that went through the ICO will be getting valuable feedback gathered in one place. This resolves the issue of biased coverage as normally the projects website or its social media channels are basically the only source of information for public, while valuable feedback from real users is scattered around on numerous websites, which makes accumulating data and analyzing it pretty challenging.

Crypto-analysts will benefit from being featured on the platform by making analysis of the project, thus getting exposure in crypto-world. Professional analytical ratings will provide users with opportunity to choose the most relevant information. Token holders and platform users will be able to assess a startup project by many criteria, such as: the team, the progress, communication with community, correlation between declared goals and factual achievements. The users will also have the like and dislike buttons to rate the review either as valuable and informative or useless.

Revain team will be gathering user feedback and comments at: feedback@revain.org

With Backing from the Biggest Poker Names, CoinPoker Launches Pre-ICO NEWSBTC

Coinpoker is going to be returning 15% of the tokens collected during the entire ICO to their community via its first tournaments. Factoring in the total maximum amount of CHP tokens that are going to be distributed (500 million), there is clearly potential for the prizepools to surpass seven figures in added value, which is unprecedented in the online poker world.

In order to make their Pre-ICO more accessible, CoinPoker has opted to allow acquiring tokens via SpectroCoin exchange and wallet platform. SpectroCoin has a very successful practice of doing in-platform pre-ICOs and allowing people to get tokens by using different cryptocurrencies or even regular currencies, said Warren Lush of CoinPoker, It will allow poker players to purchase tokens even if they are new to cryptocurrencies, or if they are already using BitCoin, Nem, Dash, and others.

After the Pre-ICO has finished on the 1st December, the remainder of the ICO will be carried out with the help of smart contracts and will only be available for acquisition using Ethereum. However, the users will then be able to use any e-wallet.

Backed by legendary poker player and celebrity Tony G Antanas Guoga as well as influential poker brands such as PokerNews, PokerTube, and High Stakes Database, this project is garnering a substantial amount of attention in the online poker community.

Poker is my passion. I love this game. But online poker is sick & some things need 2 be changed there. Blockchain & crypto currencies could make poker trustworthy again. Thats why I am backing http://www.coinpoker.com . Tony G said on his Twitter account. The poker player turned politician confirmed that he might consider leaving politics because of this project.

In contrast with the majority of ICOs, CoinPoker is already offering a MVP (Minimum Viable Product) on their website. They have launched a play-money application that is available for download for anyone who is interested.

CoinPoker is aiming to solve current online poker problems, namely transaction speed, payment issues and transparency in game logic.

Bitcoin Price Watch; Heres Where We Are Looking To Get In Today NEWSBTC

The European session has just kicked off in the bitcoin price and its looking as though we are in for some considerable volatility moving forward today and ahead into the close of the week. From its corrective lows way back down around the $6000 level late last week, bitcoin has staged something of a miraculous recovery and currently trades above the $7500 mark across the major exchanges.

This gives us a strong bullish bias going forward with a longer-term target in and around previous highs circa $7900 apiece.

Before we look at those levels, however, we have a bit of intrarange action to navigate.

So, with that said, lets get some levels in place that we can use to do exactly that. As ever, take a quick look at the chart below before we get started so as to get an idea where things stand and where we are looking to jump in and out of the markets as and when things move during the session today. It is a one-minute candlestick chart and it has our range overlaid in green.

As the chart shows, the range were looking at for the session today comes in as defined by support to the downside at 7407 and resistance to the upside at 7538. We will initially look for a close above resistance to validate an upside entry towards a target of 7570. A stop loss on the trade somewhere in the region of 7525 will ensure we are taken out of the position if things turn against us.

Looking the other way, if we get a close below support, we will try and jump into a short trade towards a downside target of 7370. A stop loss on this one at 7420 looks like it should do the job from a risk management perspective.

Lets see how things play out.

Major Financial Platforms are Adopting Bitcoin, What Happens by 2018? NEWSBTC

Some of the worlds largest financial platforms and exchanges that support a variety of investors have started to adopt bitcoin at a rapid pace, providing sufficient liquidity and infrastructure around bitcoin and its market.

Integration of Bitcoin by Major Financial Platforms

Earlier this week, CME, the global financial sectors leading options exchange, officially announced that its bitcoin futures exchange will be launched by the second week of December. Consequently, $95 billion hedge fund Man Group revealed its short-term plan to include bitcoin in its portfolio of assets.

Square, the $15 billion payments app, which is led by CEO Jack Dorsey, the founder and CEO of Twitter, also revealed that it has integrated bitcoin over the past week, allowing users to purchase and sell bitcoin through its mobile app.

Were always listening to our customers and weve found that they are interested in using the Cash App to buy Bitcoin. Were exploring how Square can make this experience faster and easier, and have rolled out this feature to a small number of Cash App customers. We believe cryptocurrency can greatly impact the ability of individuals to participate in the global financial system and were excited to learn more here, said a Square spokesperson.

As of current, Squares bitcoin feature operates similar to a bitcoin wallet and brokerage, which enables existing users to buy, sell, and store bitcoin. Users cannot make payments with bitcoin through the Square app and its network yet, but full integration of bitcoin is on the roadmap of Square.

In consideration of the Square apps 3 million active user base, Square will likely be able to penetrate into the bitcoin market at a rapid pace in the upcoming months, competing against existing wallet and brokerage service providers such as Coinbase.

Rapid Adoption of Bitcoin by Merchants

Squares integration of bitcoin and the companys enthusiasm towards bitcoin as a decentralized cryptocurrency is particularly optimistic for the long-term growth of bitcoin, given that the adoption of mainstream investors, payments applications, and financial service providers would ultimately lead to the adoption of merchants.

For instance, Square operates a widely utilized Point of Sale (PoS) network which merchants and stores such a...

Vitalik Buterin Apologizes for Controversial Bitcoin Cash Tweet NEWSBTC

There has been a lot of commotion involving Bitcoin Cash as of late. Things got especially interesting when Vitalik Buterin suddenly started supporting this altcoin. More specifically, his tweet caused a fair amount of backlash. Publicly congratulating Ver and Wu on the success of BCH isnt out of the ordinary. Not even when this altcoin briefly surpassed Ethereum in market cap. However, others saw it as a flawed thought process. In the end, Buterin did the right thing and apologized for this strange comment.

Collaboration is key in the cryptocurrency world. No one will deny that is the case in this day and age. However, there is still a lot of bad blood between BTC and BCH supporters these days. Vitalik Buterin sparked the proverbial hornets nest by issuing some comments on this situation. He seemingly hinted at how the community is responsible for this fractured way of thinking in Bitcoin. That was not the case, as a few individuals have riled up some people to support their cause first and foremost.

Buterin Apologizes for Badly Timed Tweet

Moreover, Buterin suddenly found himself in this war between Bitcoin communities. Congratulating the BCH team on their success wasnt appreciated by real Bitcoin supporters. Especially not in the light of his recent other comments either. For all intents and purposes, these attacks by both communities shouldnt have been endorsed or supporter to begin with. Offering words of congratulations to either side in this regard is very dubious, to say the least.

In the end, Buterin explained he wanted to express happiness for an alternative Bitcoin solution. Competition is a good thing in cryptocurrency, even when it comes to Bitcoin. Not everyone has the same points of view, yet they still deserve a tool to work with. It is good to see this issue being put...

MyWish: 200+ created contracts & 500+ users NEWSBTC

The MyWish platform was created with the goal of implantation high technologies into real life. The introduction of smart contracts allowed creating the necessary services for crypto-owners, but understanding of its application and convenience did not appear immediately. For lots of people, the creation of a smart contract still seems to be a very complex technological process, which is only available to the dedicated ones. MyWish project has an intention to dispel this myth and make smart contracts accessible to anyone who does not have special knowledge.

The interface of the MyWish platform is very simple to popularize the idea of applying smart contracts, because with its help it is possible to solve a huge number of issues in the digital economy. Smart contracts can replace a number of institutions that regulate the circulation of money in the fiat world.

MyWish

 

The statistics of signed in users on MyWish and the number of concluded smart contracts since the launch of the platform demonstrate that they are moving in the right direction. On top of that, there is a sustainable trend for smart contracts to be in a high demand, which means that people willingly accept this kind of innovation.

MyWish has 537 signed up users and 205 concluded contracts on the platform within 2 months after the launch of the project.

 

 

mywish

The most popular is Will contract, which allows its users to transfer funds to the backup wallet in case of a long absence of the owner. There are 133 registered contracts.

Contract Lost key (transfer of funds to the backup wallet in case of key loss)

and Deferred payment (transfer of funds to the wallet of another owner after passing a certain period) concluded 12 people for each contact.

One pair concluded a Wedding contract.

In addition, apart from the contracts for individuals, MyWish is working on contracts in B2B sector. Their trial contract for a pizzeria for one day found a response among 47 owners of the ether.

Bitcoin Gold Price Technical Analysis BTG/USD in Downtrend NEWSBTC

Key Points

  • Bitcoin gold price is struggling to gain traction and remains below $200 against the US Dollar.
  • This is a declining channel forming with resistance at $220 on the hourly chart of BTG/USD (data feed from Bitfinex).
  • The price is likely to remain in a downtrend and it could even retest the $150 support area.

Bitcoin gold price is struggling a lot below $220 against the US Dollar. BTG/USD might extend declines and likely to trade toward $160-150.

Bitcoin Gold Price Resistance

There was a no recovery in bitcoin gold price above the $280 resistance against the US Dollar. The price started a downside move after failing to move above the $280 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It traded close to the $150 level and formed a low near $157.49. At present, the price is correcting higher, but struggling to break the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $280 high to $157 low.

It seems like there is a declining channel forming with resistance at $220 on the hourly chart of BTG/USD. The pair is likely to remain in a downtrend until there is a break above $220. Before $220, the $200 level and the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $280 high to $157 low are also hurdles. Above $220, the 100 hourly simple moving average is positioned near $230 to act as a barrier.

Bitcoin Gold Price Technical Analysis BTG USD

Overall, there are many hurdles for buyers starting with $200 up to $240. On the downside, the most important support is near $160 and $150. Any further declines could see buying interest above $150, but limited.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD The MACD for BTG/USD is not showing any major bullish signs.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for BTG/USD has just moved above the 50 level, but with a divergence.

$8,000 Short-Term Bitcoin Price Target of Max Keiser: Entrance of Retail Investors NEWSBTC

Max Keiser, a prominent financial analyst and the host of RTs Keiser Report, has reaffirmed his short-term bitcoin price target at $8,000.

Hedge Funds Rush Into Bitcoin Following CMEs Bitcoin Futures Listing

Throughout this week, following the official announcement of CME Group, the largest options exchange in the world, to launch a bitcoin futures exchange by the second week of December, major hedge funds including the $95 billion US-based hedge fund Man Group revealed their plans to invest in bitcoin in the short-term.

Large-scale hedge funds with multi-billion dollar valuations and hundreds of billions of dollars worth of assets under management only permit their partners and managers to invest a minimum value of around $300 million to a particular asset. As such, the entrance of hedge funds like Man Group by the end of December 2017 would likely lead to flow of tens of billions of dollars into the bitcoin market in the mid-term.

The markets optimism surrounding the entrance of institutional and retail investors into the bitcoin sector has led to an increase in the price of bitcoin, which has risen from $5,600 to $7,200 in a matter of days. Given that the majority of hedge funds have not invested in bitcoin yet and their plan to do so has already created upward momentum for bitcoin, it is likely that the price of bitcoin will surge rapidly upon the launch of CMEs bitcoin futures exchange.

In a recent interview with Reuters, billionaire investor and hedge fund legend Mike Novogratz stated:

The institutionalization of this space is coming. Its coming pretty quick.

Several analysts have noted this week the the trading volume of existing bitcoin futures exchange LedgerX, which was approved by the Commodities Futures Trading Commission to operate as a bitcoin derivatives, futures, and options trading platform, has increased substantially since its debut in October.

ETH/USD and ETH/BTC Technical Analysis November 16 2017 NEWSBTC

Hello and welcome to News BTCs Market Outlook November.

ETH/USD

Ethereum continues to run to the upside during the trading session on Wednesday, but the $340 level looks to be offering a bit of resistance. Because of this, I think a pullback might be necessary, but that pullbacks should only offer a fresh buying opportunity. I believe that the $312 level will now offer a bit of a floor in the market, and that we should go looking towards the $350 level above.

ETH/BTC

Ethereum initially fell against Bitcoin during the day, but you can see we are starting to turn around near the 0.046 region. By doing so, looks as if were going to try to fight our way to the upside, but I think now we are entering a potential consolidation area between the 0.045 level on the bottom, and the 0.053 level on the top.

Thanks for watching, Ill be back tomorrow.

Ripple Price Technical Analysis XRP/USD Moving Higher NEWSBTC

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price is slowly moving higher and is currently well above the 0.2040 support against the US Dollar.
  • Yesterdays highlighted contracting triangle with current support at $0.2060 is still in place on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The price might soon break the resistance at $0.2120 for more gains in the near term.

Ripple price is slowly gaining bullish pace against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD has to surpass the $0.2120 level for more upsides.

Ripple Price Resistance

There was a slow and steady upside move initiated from the $0.1900 low in Ripple price against the US Dollar. The price was successful in moving above the $0.2000 handle and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 0.2215 high to $0.1900 low. The upside move was positive as the price was able to move above the $0.2040 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Moreover, yesterdays highlighted contracting triangle with current support at $0.2060 is still in place on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. As long as the pair is above $0.2060 and $0.2040, there is a chance of it gaining bids for the next leg. On the upside, the pair needs to settle above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the 0.2215 high to $0.1900 low.

Ripple Price Technical Analysis XRP USD

Once the pair is above $0.2120, it could easily move towards the last swing high of $0.2220. On the downside, the mentioned $0.2040 level is a major support near the 100 hourly SMA. Should there be a break below $0.2040, there can be a downside reaction toward the $0.2000 handle.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD The MACD for XRP/USD is currently attempting to move back in the bullish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for XRP/USD is moving down from the 60 level toward 50.

Major Support Level $0.2040

Major Resistance Level $0.2120

DASH/USD and LTC/USD Technical Analysis November 16 2017 NEWSBTC

Hello and welcome to News BTCs Market Outlook November.

DASH/USD

DASH continues to chop around, as Wednesday was more of the same action. However, looks as if we are trying to form some type of asymmetrical triangle on the 4-hour chart, and with the recent search higher I would have to believe that we will more than likely have buyers trying to break out to the upside. A clearance of the $460 level should send this market looking for $500 above.

LTC/USD

Litecoin continues to rally, but we are running into a bit of trouble near the $66 level. The $68 level above will be a massive resistance barrier, so I think that we could see several short-term pullbacks to build up the necessary momentum to break out to the upside. It does help that the US dollar is under pressure in the Forex world right now, so that might be the catalyst to finally break out and continue the long run higher. Otherwise, think of the floor as $58.

BTC/USD and BTC/JPY Technical Analysis November 16 2017 NEWSBTC

Hello and welcome to News BTCs Market Outlook November.

BTC/USD

Bitcoin exploded to the upside yet again on Wednesday, slicing through the $7000 level. However, there is a lot of noise extending to the $7600 level, and it does look like we are getting a bit overbought on the 4-hour chart. With the stochastics crossing in the overbought zone, I suspect that its only a matter of time before we do pull back. I look at these pullbacks as buying opportunities, and believe that the $6500 level will offer a bit of a floor below.

BTC/JPY

Bitcoin rallied against the Japanese yen as well, breaking above the 800,000 level. We do look a little stretch now here as well, and I see that we are trying to form a shooting star on the 4-hour chart. Because of this, we will probably get a pullback, but I would anticipate that there should be plenty of buyers below, especially near the 775,000 level.

Thanks for watching, Ill be back tomorrow.

ALT COIN IOTA RALLY. GAINS $0.18 NEWSBTC

IOTA rally was perhaps November 15 highlight. Price action gained $0.18 by the end of the day. NEM, Monero, NEO and DASH were whipsawing with bull and bear pressure cancelling each other out.

Lets look at the charts:

NOVEMBER 12 HI-LO DEFINES NEM SHORT TERM TREND

alt coin NEM Daily chartNEMUSD Daily Chart for November 16, 2017

The Hi-Los of November 12 continues to define price action over the last 4 days. In essence, NEM price action around the 20 period MA and the main support or resistance line at $0.20 is important.

So far, there have been a break and close above the two resistances. What will be important especially today is if price action will confirm yesterdays bull candlestick and close above the minor $0.7 range or if it will reverse lower.That has not been made clear by price action.

Nevertheless, intraday traders should continue taking long positions in shorter time frames.

USD AND DASH BULLS FIGHT FOR CONTROL

alt coin DASH Daily chart DASHUSD Daily Chart for November 16, 2017

What we are seeing in the daily chart is a balanced price action. DASH and USD bulls are cancelling as revealed by November 14 and 15 dojis. Its worth noting that this is happening at resistance zone with clear lower lows relative to the upper BB.

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis ETH/USD Testing Key Support NEWSBTC

Key Highlights

  • ETH price is correcting lower and is currently trading near a major support at $326 against the US Dollar.
  • Yesterdays highlighted major bullish trend line with current support at $326 is intact on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via SimpleFX).
  • The price should hold the trend line support near $326 to remain in the bullish zone.

Ethereum price is correcting lower against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD has to maintain bid tone above $326 to gain upside momentum.

Ethereum Price Support

There was a new minor high formed at $337.29 in ETH price against the US Dollar. Later, the price started correcting lower and moved below $335. There was a break below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last leg up from the $314.44 low to $337.29 high. The downside correction was decent since the price even broke the $326 level once before recovering.

It tested the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last leg up from the $314.44 low to $337.29 high. The $323 level held the downside move along with yesterdays highlighted major bullish trend line with current support at $326 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The highlighted trend line support could play an important role near $326 in the short term. Therefore, the pair has to remain above $326 and $323 to avoid further declines.

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis ETH USD

On the upside, the $335 level is an initial resistance followed by the recent high at $337.29. A close above $337.29 could open the doors for more gains may be toward $360 in the near term. The 100 hourly simple moving average is currently positioned at $318 and is showing positive signs. If the price continues to stay above the $323 level, there is a chance of it gaining momentum.

Hourly MACD The MACD has reduced most of its bullish slope.

Hourly RSI The RSI has just moved below the 50 level.

Major Resistance Level $337

Bitcoin Cash Price Technical Analysis BCH/USD Grinding Lower NEWSBTC

Key Points

  • Bitcoin cash price is slowly moving lower and is currently trading below $1300 against the US Dollar.
  • There is a new connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance at $1200 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD (data feed from Kraken).
  • The price has to overcome sell offers near $1200 and $1300 to make an upside move.

Bitcoin cash price is slowly moving down toward $1100 against the US Dollar. BCH/USD is facing two important resistances near $1200 and $1300.

Bitcoin Cash Price Decline

There is a slow and steady decline forming from the $1500 swing high in bitcoin cash price against the US Dollar. The price has declined below the $1300 level and the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg up from the $1005 low to $1530 high. The current bias is bearish since the price struggled to settle above the $1300 level. It is currently trading well below the $1300 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

The price recently broke the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last leg up from the $1005 low to $1530 high, which is a bearish sign. On the upside, there is a new connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance at $1200 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD. The pair is struggling to move above $1200 and $1220 resistance levels. On the downside, there is a support trend line forming near $1100. There is a chance that BCH/USD would test $1100 before it attempts an upside recovery.

Bitcoin Cash Price Technical Analysis BCH USD

To sum up, the current momentum is bearish as long as the price is below $1200 and $1300. It could test the $1100 and $1000 levels in the near term if the momentum remains intact.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD The MACD for BCH/USD is currently in the bearish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for BCH/USD is moving south and is well below the 50 level.

Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis for 11/16/2017 Bulls Back on their Feet? NEWSBTC

Bitcoin Price Key Highlights

  • Bitcoin price is starting to trend higher once more, depending on whether or not the support on the 1-hour time frame holds.
  • An ascending trend line can be drawn to connect the lows over the past few days and the support lines up with the 38.2% retracement level.
  • A bounce off this level could take bitcoin price to the swing high or higher, but tech indicators are suggesting a continuation of the drop.

Bitcoin price appears to be reviving its uptrend on the 1-hour time frame, but there are still signs that bears could win out.

Technical Indicators Signals

The 100 SMA is below the longer-term 200 SMA on the 1-hour time frame, so the path of least resistance is to the downside. However, its also worth noting that the gap is narrowing to suggest a potential upward crossover and return in bullish momentum.

The 200 SMA is close to the 61.8% Fib also, adding to its strength as a potential floor even if the trend line breaks. A move below the moving averages, on the other hand, could draw more selling pressure in.

Stochastic is heading lower so bitcoin price might follow suit while bears remain on top of their game. RSI has more room to tumble so there could still be plenty of losses in the cards.

Market Factors

The dollar has been treading carefully as traders bite their nails ahead of the House vote on tax reform. Postponing the vote, similar to the Obamacare repeal earlier this year, could lead to fresh doubts that anything productive will happen before the end of the year.

Thomas Peterffy on CME Futures: A Catastrophe in the Cryptocurrency Market will destabilize the real economy. NEWSBTC

Chairman of Interactive Brokers, Thomas Peterffy, has voiced concerns about the plan to launch a Bitcoin Futures contract. According to their CEO, Terry Duffy, the CME Group intends to offer the listing as early as the second week in December. However, Peterffy is worried about the implications of a crypto-based Futures market. For him, the violent swings associated with digital currencies and assets could spell disaster for investors, as well as the economy as a whole.

Interactive Brokers are themselves a CME clearing member and through an open letter dated November 14, 2017, they requested that the Commission require that any clearing organisation that wishes to clear any cryptocurrency or derivative of a cryptocurrency do so in a separate clearing system isolated from other products.

For Peterffy, there is no fundamental basis for valuation of cryptocurrencies and the volatility common within markets is cause for concern. He highlighted the lack of a mature, regulated and tested underlying market and declared that determining the amount of funds necessary to margin such a product is impossible. For him, drastic movements in price could affect many more than just a few unlucky traders:

a catastrophe in the cryptocurrency market that destabilizes a clearing organization will destabilize the real economy.

He continued:

If the Chicago Mercantile Exchange or any other clearing organization clears a cryptocurrency together with other products, then a large cryptocurrency price move that destabilizes members that clear cryptocurrencies will destabilize the clearing organization itself and its ability to satisfy its fundamental obligation to pay the winners and collect from the losers on the other products in the same clearing pool.

However, Peterffy and Interactive Brokers did suggest a way to mitigate the risk. They advocate keeping cryptocurrency derivatives entirely separate from other financial products. To protect the members of clearing organisations from the unique risks in clearing cryptocurrencies they should remain isolated.

Before signing off, Peterffy offered his and his companys support to help CME investigate and safeguard against such supposed dangers:

We would be happy to discuss this with you or to provide any further information at your convenience.

Golix Exchange: Bitcoin Price Double in Zimbabwe NEWSBTC

Cryptocurrency seems to thrive in times of instability. Thats certainly the case right now in Zimbabwe. The price of a single Bitcoin surged to an unprecedented $13,500 on the countrys only crypto exchange, Golix, following news that troops from the Zimbabwe Defence Forces seized power in what is beginning to look like a coup. On the state broadcasting service, military leaders claimed that they had placed President Mugabe under house arrest.

Following Wednesdays developments, queues began to form outside banks in the capital city of Harare. The Independent report that some even slept in the streets to ensure first access to funds at the start of business. The rush on the banks coincided with greater demand for cryptocurrency, as is evidenced by todays BTC price on the Golix exchange. Quartz documented a large spread between bid and asks along with the huge premium on the cost of one Bitcoin compared with other major exchanges. Golixs trade coordinator, Yeukai Kusangaya offered an opinion into the recent spike in interest:

Interest in bitcoin has peaked as people cannot send money outside or pay for international transactions using formal banks. People have had to look for alternatives and bitcoin has been a useful solution which can be used to purchase goods on Amazon or to pay for vehicles from international suppliers and traders.

Thanks to the dire economic situation in Zimbabwe, its estimated that some 95% of the workforce is now jobless. In the vacuum left behind after the national currency was abandoned in 2009, most major currencies are accepted with dollars being preferred. This seems to be providing the ideal conditions for the adoption of Bitcoin.

However, the Golix exchange isnt the full picture. Since the Zimbabwean economy has been plagued by instability for the entire life of Bitcoin meaning banks are distrusted in the country, peer-to-peer trading seems to be favoured.

Interestingly, as Golix were trading at around $13,000/BTC, sellers on popular peer-to-peer trading website LocalBitcoins were offering a single Bitcoin for around $7,000 close to the current accepted price globally.

The most likely cause for the discrepancy between the two platforms prices is, according to Quartz, low liquidity. The publication report that Golix traded just 147 coins in the last 30 days. Of course, compared with other exchanges around this world, this is minuscule.

Square Cash App Launches Bitcoin Trading Functions NEWSBTC

Some users of the Square Cash app were surprised this morning to discover that they could now buy and sell Bitcoin using the platform. For those unfamiliar with it, the app can be used to send payments between friends and family. They offer free, instant transactions in dollars, and now, the ability to buy and sell Bitcoin too.

Interestingly for a company who specialise in sending and receiving payments, theres no function to pay someone using Bitcoin yet. However, Tech Crunch report that there is an option to generate an address to receive payment. However, without an option to send a transaction in cryptocurrency, its redundant, for now at least.

Last year, Square Cash became the most downloaded financial application on both Android and Apple marketplaces. They overtook competitor Venmo and are likely to continue to outperform their rival thanks to their innovative crypto adoption.

A statement from Square themselves read:

Were always listening to our customers and weve found that they are interested in using the Cash App to buy Bitcoin. Were exploring how Square can make this experience faster and easier, and have rolled out this feature to a small number of Cash App customers. We believe cryptocurrency can greatly impact the ability of individuals to participate in the global financial system and were excited to learn more here.

In a recent interview with The Verge, the CEO of Square, Jack Dorsey, mentioned hed been asked multiple times about buying Bitcoin and was amazed by how mainstream the brand is. He went on to suggest that the younger generation are increasingly seeing Bitcoin as a preferable store of value to gold. Amusingly, he recalled hearing someone say, gold is a stupid rock.

For now, the Bitcoin buying and selling functions are only available to some Square Cash app users. Tech Crunch also note a few problems with the service that will likely be ironed out before a full launch of the additional features. Another issue is that users dont hold their own private keys. Instead, a Coinbase-like system of pooled wallets is supposedly being used. This may change in the future.

Despite its limited release and few teething issues, users of the platform seemed happy about the news. Several Tweeted their joy at the revelation earlier today. One stated:

since when can you buy bitcoin through @SquareCash?!

Another was equally thrilled:

OMG! Just noticed I can now invest in Bitcoin using my Cash app! I seriously think this is my most useful app.ever.

New Semi-Decentralized Cryptocurrency Exchange Navigates Murky Compliance Waters Bitcoin Magazine

New Semi-Decentralized Cryptocurrency Exchange Navigates Murky Compliance Waters

Tetra, a new entrant in the cryptocurrency exchange sector, describes itself as a semi-decentralized, peer-to-peer exchange with an emphasis on security and usability: Tetra will help create the next wave of cryptocoin adoption which will benefit all cryptocurrency users from investors to traders to businesses.

The term peer-to-peer exchange tends to suggest the idea of a strong emphasis on privacy and anonymity, as well as a certain level of disdain for Know-Your-Customer (KYC) rules, meddling regulators and authorities. According to Tetras blog post announcement, however, it appears that its approach is at odds with this philosophy:

Tetra understands the importance of practices like KYC and has devoted the resources necessary to implement these processes properly. Users will be able to trade safely with the comfort of knowing that due diligence has been enacted to protect them from potential repercussions.

You may have heard the terrifying accounts of people receiving prison sentences for trading cryptocurrencies on peer-to-peer exchanges, adds the main Tetra website. With Tetra, that is a thing of the past. Route your payments through our fully compliant banking network for a legally sound trading process. We're relieving traders of the burden of obtaining expensive licenses and adhering to cumbersome regulations in order to allow people to focus on what matters: their trades.

While this sounds appealing to compliance-conscious cryptocurrency users and traders, the self-description of Tetra as a semi-decentralized P2P raises questions. In a Reddit discussion, a Tetra representative admits that Tetra is a centralized service, but states that the exchange operates using a decentralized transaction model so that the operators never have control over users coins directly, and thus hackers do not have access to users coins.

Bank Admits Fiat Currencies Are Failing and Cryptocurrencies May Replace Them "IndyWatch Feed World"

crypto-currencies2

As the transition towards a blockchain based economy continues, the established financial powers are desperately trying to stay relevant. In an attempt to boost their credibility, analysts at Deutsche Bank are finally admitting that state-run fiat currencies are becoming obsolete. For years, blockchain entrepreneurs and other critics of central banking have been branded either conspiracy theorists or criminals. But recently, those controversial opinions about the inevitable changes coming to the worlds financial system are being echoed by mainstream pundits.

Deutsche Banks top strategist, Jim Reid, recently articulated a view on the economy that is shared by many but rarely talked about:

Central banks and governments which have dined out on the 35 year secular, structural decline in inflation are not able to prevent it rising as raising interest rates to suitable levels would risk serious economic contraction given the huge debt burden economies face. As such they are forced to prioritise low interest rates and nominal growth over inflation control which could herald in the beginning of the end of the global fiat currency system that begun with the abandonment of Bretton Woods back in 1971.

cryptocurrencies

The most surprising part came when he acknowledged the crucial role cryptocurrencies may play in the move away from unbacked paper money.

Although the current speculative interest in cryptocurrencies is more to do with blockchain technology than a loss of faith in paper money, at some point there will likely be some median of exchange that becomes more universal and a competitor of paper money.

Bitcoin Price Watch; Trading The Crossover NEWSBTC

So thats another day done for our bitcoin price trading efforts and yet again weve seen an incredible amount of volatility hit the charts as price has matured towards the daily close. Were seeing an awful lot of this sort of action of late breakout, run, consolidation type stuff and this has made for some pretty great trading conditions so far this week. Were now heading into the close of the European session and weve got the US late afternoon (as well as the Europe-US crossover) right ahead of us. What we would love to see is some more of the sort of action outlined above.

This will allow us to enter the latter half of the week in a real strong position and should make closing out the week for a net gain relatively simple.

So, with this in mind, lets get some levels outlined that we can use to take advantage of price action id we see the type of movement we are looking for. As ever, take a quick look at the chart below before we get started so as to get an idea where things stand and where we are looking to jump in and out of the markets if and when things move.

The chart is a one-minute candlestick chart and its got our range overlaid in green.

As the chart shows, the range we are looking at for the session this evening comes in as defined by support to the downside at 7150 and resistance to the upside at 7217. We are going to look at jumping in long on a close above resistance, with an initial upside take profit target placed at 7265. Conversely, if we get a close below support, well jump in short towards a downside target of 7080.

Lets see what happens.

Bitcoin climbs to $13,500 in Zimbabwe following news of military coup and currency shortages "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

Bitcoin is trading at $13,500 in Zimbabwe, at almost double the value of the cryptocurrency on international exchanges. Demand for bitcoin has surged dramatically in the cash-strapped African country after the military seized power on Wednesday. According to the local exchange Golix, the price of bitcoin has risen almost 10 percent in Zimbabwe on news of the coup. The country also faces serious shortages of hard currency. Zimbabwe hasn't had its own currency since 2009 when hyperinflation wiped out the local dollar. In 2008, the central bank printed a 100 trillion note, and inflation topped 500 billion percent. Since then, Zimbabwe has been using the US dollar and South African rand, among other currencies.

Zen Protocol Advances Smart Contracts for Financial Services Bitcoin Magazine

Zen Thumb

Shunry Suzuki, the St Zen monk and teacher who helped popularize Zen Buddhism in the United States, once remarked that, "In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert's there are few."

In many ways, this aphorism captures the entrepreneurial tenor of todays emerging world of blockchain technology, as startup companies seek to address critical issues facing the distributed ledger space.  

Many would agree that todays financial systems are fraught with centralization, complexity and barriers to access. While established businesses and individuals in this market can manage the paperwork and bureaucracy, many still find these barriers to participation too challenging to overcome.  

As a result, potential trades and deals are lost, as these financial participants, trying to get limited access to the system, turn to intermediaries. These participants are, therefore, unable to issue assets or even to trade in some asset classes.  

Zen Protocol, a smart contract company headquartered in Tel Aviv, is on a quest to change this trajectory, by making secure, peer-to-peer finance possible on a customized, public blockchain, removing the need for intermediaries such as banks and brokers.  

Zens approach allows anyone, anytime, anywhere to create and trade financial products on a secure platform a Proof-of-Work blockchain protocol. Its here where an open marketplace for options, futures, digital currencies and a myriad of other financial instruments are offered to consumers who would otherwise be left without the ability to participate. 

Zen Protocol, in many respects, can be viewed as an alternative to Ethereum, Bitcoins main market competitor. Zens main value proposition is the creation of a blockchain that mitigates some of the pesky issues that have adversely impacted Ethereum, while simultaneously running parallel to the Bitcoin blockchain. 

By way of example, one problem users on the Ethereum blockchain face is running out of gas. This means that transactions on its network often fizzle out, requiring that whatever currency paid to a user be returned to them. In other words, because there wasnt enough energy to complete their transaction, it was canceled. Unfortunately, the fee for running this transaction still has to be paid.

Zen addresses this issue through proven resource bounds: a protocol for attaching to each contract a proof of how long it takes to run. This completely removes the need to monitor gas.

Key here is that smart contracts wont allow a transaction to be sent without knowing how much computation it uses. This one feature alone makes Zen a noteworthy alternative to Ethereum and other smart contract platfo...

The mining calculators have a built-in functionality to directly select the type and the number of AMD or Nvidia video cards and to automatically get the corresponding hashrate needed for the profitability calculations. The information in the video cards list with Hash to Power used has been compiled with the help of multiple pools and miners and provides values for every Nvidia video card going back to the GTX 7XX series and for most of the more recent AMD video cards as well.

One feature that sets apart this mining profitability calculator service is that with every calculation the users can see links to the coins official website, block explorer and recommended mining pools. The recommended pools list provides in one place the location of the pools and their mining fee, so miners can choose which pool will fit them best and go there directly after finding a new profitable coin to switch to.

The team behind the website has also recently started sharing technical crypto guides on interesting topics and a hardware repair section, which can be really useful for everyone who wants to restore their old mining cards back to glory for instance. The site is also provides monitoring of the Network Hashrate and Difficulty for all of the coins present in the calculator, allowing miners to check the last 90 days of the performance of the network.
