“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
Many of the startups dealing in crypto are upstarts with questionable track records. But five-year-old Robinhood has raised $176 million from top investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Index, and NEA that now value the company at $1.3 billion. There’s clear long-term benefit to rolling up crypto traders and using the feature as a wedge to get them to hold money with Robinhood where it earns interest, and pay for the Robinhood Gold premium tier for $6 to $200 a month that lets them borrow between $1,000 and $50,000.
“We believe now is a great time to offer an institutional-focused lending service because it will increase general liquidity in the marketplace, encourage new financial institutions to participate in a two-sided market and increase the working capital that companies use to scale their digital currency-centric businesses,” Genesis Capital said in a press release.
I don’t care much about Altcoin bull runs where the price dramatically increases 15-20% in a few hours. Those aren’t the patterns I am looking for when I trade. In fact, if i see a chart like this I almost always ignore it:
Generally the biggest bitcoin exchanges will be toward the top of the above list. For example Bitfinex, GDAX, Bitstamp, Coinbase (also the best usd bitcoin exchange) all represent large volume proportions. Daily volume varies, and therefore the world’s largest exchange vary each day. Go to bitcoinity for a good list of all the top bitcoin exchange site and their proportional volumes. Some find this handy for arbitrage between markets.
At Coin Pursuit, we’re investors in digital currency, just like our readers are, and they often approach us for advice. All of us have a stake in the success of cryptocurrency, and we all want it to succeed, right? Right! Well, we’ve discussed those goals with experts in the industry, and with their help we’ve come up with what we like to call our Ten Commandments of Trading Cryptocurrency.
Sometimes you think you see a chocolate pudding, and it turns out to be a bowl of shit. It all looked so well for the HempCoin ($THC) when we wrote our Hodl That #8, and at first, the plan seemed to work out nicely, even with the bitcoin moves that massacred altcoins across the The support around 2k sats held bravely and once the team behind $thc published their new whitepaper, with further masternodes and other significant pieces of information for a bright future the price went up slowly. And then it went it south. It dived deeper then Hagbard…
These smart contracts are used in a huge range of applications from insurance to real estate. Similarly, there are many alternative cryptocurrencies and their protocols that have been designed for enabling the users to convert or transact any type of currency — including frequent flyer miles, Bitcoin, or fiat money.
Love Thy Crypto. The world of high finance and Wall Street can appear dry and mundane to a lot of us; there doesn’t seem to be a lot of passion involved. We earnestly believe that needn’t be the case with digital currency. Once again, don’t invest in the hopes that this is all a get-rich-quick scheme; instead, do it because you believe strongly in the concepts and the principles behind cryptocurrency.
The Commodity Channel Index (CCI) is a technical indicator used to spot trend changes in the market. Despite the name, the CCI indicator can be used in multiple markets, not just in commodities. The indicator works by comparing the current price to the average price over a determined period of time. The indicator can be positive or negative as the price fluctuates above or below the zero line. The CCI indicator was initially developed for long term trend changes, but can be used for a variety of time frames including monthly charts, weekly charts, hourly and even minute charts.
Investors should be aware that system response, execution price, speed, liquidity, market data, and account access times are affected by many factors, including market volatility, size and type of order, market conditions, system performance, and other factors.
The decentralized and transparent nature is what makes blockchain highly secure and almost impossible to hack, because a hack to one ledger would cause a discrepancy in the entire network that will be ignored. Functionally, to hack the ledger one would have to hack all the computers on a network at the exact same time in order to change the “average”. For a currency like bitcoin, this would mean millions of computers. So the larger the network, the more stable the currency.
The project went live in 2015 but by 2016, the value of an Ether skyrocketed to $14 per coin. If you spent $100 then, it would have given you 250 Ethers and by the end of 2 years (in 2016), that would have been worth $3,500.
My general rule in buying Bitcoin on leverage is to buy the dip: you want to see red candles after a period of green candles on the charts. I like to buy at 10x leverage to start with. If the position trades into a nice profit I slide the leverage slider up to 50x or 100x. This has the effect of moving your Liquidation Price up and therefore securing profit.

ICOs have a lot of varieties. You may either see ICO sales with a specific time limit or pre-defined project funding goals. For example, an ICO may have tokens that are sold on a pre-defined price that will not change during the ICO sale; in such cases, the token’s total supply has to be static.
“Bitcoin has a resiliency to it,” said Baiju Bhatt, co-founder of Robinhood. “This is something that we also feel like really fundamentally aligns with the mission of the company — to make the financial system more accessible to the rest of us.”
