Here’s Why Low Bitcoin Prices Now, Means For A More Valuable Future

 Bitcoin is the market leader, the cryptocurrency best associated with cryptocurrency and of course, the one to watch for the future. Not necessarily in investment terms, but in terms of its ability to reflect what could happen in the future. What we mean by this is that Bitcoin can be used to tell us how the markets will perform. By monitoring how Bitcoin responds to certain events, we can make better estimations on how the altcoins will perform too. Therefore, it is just as important to look at Bitcoin when prices are low, as well as when prices are...

The Immature Altcoin Market Needs To Grow Up Or Bitcoin Will Dominate Forever

Bitcoin dominance is on the rise, once again, reducing the market capitalisation of altcoins in the process.

By engaging in cloud mining, users are able to ‘rent’ the hashing...

Last week, we saw another spanner in the works of the Winklevoss twins, who have recently applied for the first evert Bitcoin Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) to be listed on their cryptocurrency exchange, Gemini. The ETF application was rejected by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for the second time round, causing the markets to stumble and of course, bringing a number of experts out of the woodwork to pass their opinion. Whilst it is clear the SEC decision did impact the value of Bitcoin slightly (though it has now recovered), Vitalik Buterin, the founder of Ethereum believes...

Mining Takes A Turd For The Worse, You Can Now Mine Crypto With Your Poop

We know it’s early on a Monday morning, so toilet humour may be a little unsettling but either way, news is news and even if its about poop, if its relevant, we’re going to report on it. Before we begin, let me introduce you to Anaerobic Digestion. In the words of Biogas-info.co.uk: “Anaerobic Digestion (AD) is a natural process where plant and animal materials (biomass) are broken down by micro-organisms in the absence of air. The AD process begins when biomass is put inside a sealed tank or digester. Naturally occurring micro-organisms digest the biomass, which releases a methane-rich gas...
