Vitalik Buterin Backs Bitcoin Cash As THE Adoptable Crypto

Vitalik Buterin, the mastermind behind Ethereum and one of the superstars of the cryptosphere, has recently spoken out about his dream of a commercial landscape for cryptocurrency. In his landscape though, he’s not spending Ethereum, not is he spending Bitcoin, he’s spending Bitcoin Cash. According to reports, Buterin recently spoke out at a small event at Berkeley, during which he discussed the state of Ethereum and of course, his thoughts on the future of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. One of his main focuses (as many know) is this idea that the future for cryptocurrency lies within open regulations that are designed to protect users and protect crypto, whilst allowing people to spend it freely. It seems that Buterin believes Bitcoin Cash is the best currency for this. Perhaps...

Ouch, BTC Falls, ETH, XRP And BCH Crash, It’s A Bad Day For Crypto

It’s a bad day for crypto. The markets have crashed and are leaving behind empty shells that were once filled with value and optimism. We had hoped for August to be a truly positive month, helping us regain the losses encountered over the past few months. The truth though – August is looking to be the most negative month we have experienced since the boom. Values are down and crypto is falling. I suppose though there is one good thing to take from all of this, values are low. The markets will recover from this collapse, that’s for sure. The thing is – we can’t tell when or how things will pick up again. Therefore as investors, all we can do is simply watch from the distance. Keep an eye on your assets and watch how they perform. Watch the headlines for signs of a bull run and k...

Bitcoin Core Developer Could Have Wiped Bitcoin Cash From Existence

According to reports out last week, a lone Bitcoin Core developer found a huge vulnerability on the Bitcoin Cash network back in April, one that could have been used to cause some serious damage to Bitcoin Cash. Now, before I continue, let’s just remember that there’s a lot of tension between Bitcoin Core and Bitcoin Cash, with both claiming to be the ‘original Bitcoin’, therefore, being presented with an opportunity like this could have been a bit of a goldmine for the developer in question. Instead, Cory Fields, Bitcoin Core developer, used the information to inform the Bitcoin Cash development team so give them the opportunity to implement a fix, before a hacker gained access to the network. What happened here? Fields has taken to Medium to upload his side of the story. On the 25th of A...

Leading National Television Provider Moves To Accept Bitcoin Cash Payments

Dish, is one of the leading satellite television providers in the United States. They provide TV broadcasting services to around 13.7 million customers and internet connection services to around 580 customers. With an estimated revenue of $14.391 billion in 2017, they can be considered a major player in the satellite TV industry. In 2014, Dish made a stunning move which saw the company start to accept Bitcoin payments from their customers. This was indeed one of the first examples of mass Bitcoin adoption that gave a large number of people access to a cryptocurrency based payment option. Due to the popularity of their Bitcoin service and of course, due to the rise in altcoins, Dish have decided to partner with BitPay in a move that will allow the company to also start to accept Bitcoin Cas...

Bitcoin ETF Delay Destroys BTC, XRP, BCH And ETC

The markets are falling hard today. We are seeing all major cryptocurrencies falling at a rapid rate, way down from their values over the previous 24 hours. We aren’t worried about this though. We know what has caused the drop – a decision made by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to delay their impending decision regarding the approval (or disapproval) of a Bitcoin Exchange Traded Fund (ETF). The original deadline was set for this Friday, yet their brief did allow for an additional 45 day extension to be issued, this now seems to be the case and will see a final decision made on the 30th of September 2018. Even though the SEC haven’t denied the Bitcoin ETF, the markets have reacted very badly to this. Let’s see what’s happened. At the time of writing, Bitcoi...

BTC, ETH And BCH Owned In Huge Amounts By Members Of The White House

Within the United States, members of Congress and other authorities are starting to be required to account for and declare their digital assets. This is a little bit of a paradox in that cryptocurrency was designed to challenge government control, yet in this scenario, we are seeing members of one of the world’s most powerful governments declare their crypto assets, on a frankly colossal scale. If a currency designed to beat the government is owned by the government, does it lose all bearing? Whilst this question is up for debate, one thing is clear. Staff and members of Congress, The White House and many other United States authorities own cryptocurrency. We’ve even speculated on a theory that Mr Trump himself owns Bitcoin. According to Sludge: “In late June, the House Ethics Committee pa...

Market Update – Unsteady Day Ahead For Markets, BCH And ETC Fly, MIOTA Falls

The markets continue to exist within an uncertain limbo today. Values are changing but not in a good way, overall, everything seems to be very unsure. We can’t see the markets heading in one unified direction, instead, values seem to be moving on their own. In essence, the markets are super volatile at the moment, it’s hard to keep track of what is going on and it’s even harder to predict what will happen next. At the very least, let this serve as a reminder of just how risky cryptocurrency investment is. At the time of writing, Bitcoin remains just above $7,000.00. It’s safe to say the $8,000.00 dream is now but a distant memory, though Bitcoin is now back up, slightly, at 0.31%. Hardly an indication of a looming bull run though I am afraid. Otherwise, let’s take a look at the stand...

Market Update – Shaky Start To August Pulls BTC, ETH, XRP, BCH And EOS Down

This weekend has marked a strong negative start to August. This came off the back of a promising start to the week that really seemed to inject an air of positivity back into the community. The weekends negative movements however have done a great job of sucking the optimism out of us all. As it stands, August looks to be about as much fun as May, April and June, helping us into the latter half of the year with a pretty bad feeling about what’s to come. Today’s major headline seems to be: Bitcoin won’t see an ATH this year, just to offer you some perspective into how people are feeling today. Regardless of this, let’s take a look at this mornings standings. Bitcoin at the time of writing is valued at $7,041.09, up 0.55%. Bitcoin dominance is down to 47.4%. Over the weekend, Bitcoin slipped...

Here Are All the ATH Prices You May Have Forgotten About

With the markets down and all time high (ATH) prices in distant memory, we want to discuss a few historical benchmarks in the hope to insert some optimism back into traders and investors, though looking at some of these figures, it may do the opposite, depending on how you interpret this.   See these all time highs as prices for the future, not as distant goals and don’t think about ‘what could have been’. Many experts are predicting that 2018 will see new all time highs for many cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin. If this is the case, here are some of the targets that we need to breach.   Bitcoin (BTC) The current ATH for Bitcoin is $20,089.00. The current price of Bitcoin is 62.33% off this ATH price, so we do have quite a long way to go before Bitcoin see’s these heights agai...

Bitcoin Cash Stick it to Bitcoin With Controversial New Rebrand

The Bitcoin Cash vs Bitcoin Core battle seems to have gone quiet since the latter variant tried to take Bitcoin Cash to court. It does seem though that within their latest move, Bitcoin Cash are trying to stir up the argument once again. Let the battle commence… Just as a refresher, Bitcoin Cash is a fork of Bitcoin (also known as Bitcoin Core to some). The argument essentially exists between the two forks on the basis that each believe they are the original Bitcoin. It’s complicated and often it gets quite immature, but it does make good reading, and watching in this case… This video, by Bitcoin Cash has been produced to launch the new Bitcoin Cash logo. The video depicts a Street Fighter arcade game style video in which Bitcoin Cash wins a fight against Bitcoin Core. As the video ends, a...

Market Update – BTC, XRP & BCH, Mixed Messages But Markets Still Positive

After a pretty solid week of gains and positive movements, we enter this new week on a positive note. Values are up and as it stands, things look pretty promising as we head into August. We are now in a position in which we may very well see, for the first time in a couple of months, a number of cryptocurrencies make way back up to their target figures. We can’t guarantee a bull run, but at the very least, if the planets align and everything goes to plan, we do expect a surge to take over during August. We don’t know how hard it will hit nor how long it will last, but at the very least, a surge is a surge and it will inject some promise back into the markets, and the hearts of investors. When optimism rules, thing’s are a little brighter at the very least. Let’s see how the markets stand t...
