This Search Engine May Save Cryptocurrency

This Search Engine May Save Cryptocurrency
Before Google really monopolised the way we search the web, we used to access a whole host of internet search engines, allowing instant information to be on hand, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Yes, these search engines still exist but let's face it, Google is the go-to choice for the majority of internet users. Yahoo, back in the day was seen as a serious contender for both Google and Google Mail however as time continued and Google took over, Yahoo were seen to be taking a little bit of a backseat. Breaking news this week from the Nikkei Asian Review suggests that Yahoo Japan is going to be building their own cryptocurrency exchange, after bidding for a 40% share in the BitARG Exchange, Tokyo. BitARG is already a credited financial regulator in Japan, with the 40% share expected to move over to Yahoo’s control in early 2019. You might argue that this is a precautionary move for Yahoo Japan, maybe they are testing the water to see if engaging in a cryptocurrency exchange can bolster their reputation, however, according to Nikkei, the bid from Yahoo Japan is estimated to be valued around at around $19 Million. Quite the sturdy investment overall so it does look like Yahoo Japan mean business here, this isn’t just a test drive, they have quite big ideas in mind. With this, Yahoo Japan is expected to run a major redesign in how BitARG operates, making it more suitable for corporate use, easier to use for the general consumer and of course more secure. At present, a number of cryptocurrency exchanges in Japan are under the wraps of long-term bans issued by the Financial Services Agency for their involvement in the $533 million hack of Japanese exchange, Coincheck back in January. This is a smart move from Yahoo, with competition down and interest in cryptocurrency trading on the rise, maybe their new involvement will spring the brand back to life, injecting it back into 2018 by providing a vital online service.

Logic invests in BTC and seems to have made a hefty profit already

Logic invests in BTC and seems to have made a hefty profit already

Quick take

1 minute read

  • Could he have registered a $2 million profit already?

Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, or as you probably know him - Logic, recently posted a video to his Instagram story saying that he bought $6 million worth of bitcoin last month.

He said YOLO during his video but it seems that his investment could turn out to be an interesting financial move.

If by “last month“, the rapper means the 31st of October or before, Then that means his $6 million investment would have been bought at a price of around $13,800. This equates to just over 430 bitcoins and if that is correct, he would register a profit of around $2 million going off today’s prices.

This comes after the Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams questioned her followers on Twitter earlier this month asking whether she should go “long on bitcoin“. Of course, she followed up with another tweet later in the day saying that she had sunk some of her money into the asset.

For Logic, he has more than likely registered a high profit from his investment back in October, if that is indeed when he actually made the move to trade in the asset.

Selling your car for bitcoin: Jason Williams of Morgan Creek digital pawns off his old Chevrolet for the leading coin

Selling your car for bitcoin: Jason Williams of Morgan Creek digital pawns off his old Chevrolet for the leading coin

Quick take

1 minute read

  • How far would you go to obtain bitcoin?
  • Jason Williams of MCD cells his Chevrolet to invest in bitcoin.

Momentum for bitcoin and the overall crypto space is definitely on the rise this month. Following the United States presidential election, much more retail and institutional investors have been drawn to the industry.

This is evident from the co-founder of Morgan Creek digital, and Jason Williams he has recently sold his car to invest in the leading coin.

Posting to Twitter earlier this month, Williams said that he sold his 2007 Chevrolet Suburban for 0.4 bitcoins. At the time of writing, this is about $7300.

Bitcoin has been on the rise massively throughout November and it only seems that it is going to keep ongoing. That being said, it is always worth doing your own research into cryptocurrency as we are not financial advisors and this is not financial advice.

Many are predicting that bitcoin is well on the way for a massive breakout and if this comes to fruition, Williams could be seeing massive profits from selling his old Chevrolet.
