I don’t hide the fact that I’m a long-term bull on cryptos. I believe they’re a game changing technology that will ripple across the entire world, remaking every aspect of society. Like my friend Chris Dixon, I believe Bitcoin could easily be worth $100,000 a coin one day, although I’m not quite there with perennial Dennis Hopper impersonator John McAfee’s prediction of Bitcoin going to $500K a coin, at least not in the next three years. It may take a little longer. I’ve talked about why in my articles Why Everyone Missed the Most Important Invention in the Last 500 Years and Reflections on the Best Blockchain Tweets Ever Written so I won’t rehash those reasons again.
Well are there even tax laws that are in effect now in crypto trading? In exchanges perhaps but for traders i don’t think so. Unless people would be willing to disclose their information when registering on an exchange, pretty much how south korea is planning to regulate crypto.
According to data from CB Insights, the amount of venture capital (VC) funding invested in fintech companies reached a new quarterly record in Q2 2017 of $5.19 billion, of which $232 million was invested in blockchain/Bitcoin companies.
Investing in what you know is a great mental heuristic. Warren Buffet regularly refuses to invest in all kinds of companies, like the tech stars everyone loves, because he doesn’t understand tech. Because he doesn’t understand it he can’t make a good call ahead of time, so he stays out. If you don’t understand the purpose of a coin, stay out. Don’t buy it because it’s going to the moon and some jackass in a Slack forum told you it’s killer.
If you are in Europe and in a country which participates in SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area), you are charged next to nothing to withdraw funds (€0.15 with Coinbase) which is great. The same goes for all sites which support SEPA. Kraken, for example, charges €0.09 for withdrawals.
There is truly no limit to the blockchain. For instance, imagine using the blockchain to host every website on the internet. Instead of connecting to one specific host which has all the files stored on their computer, the blockchain can have the website stored on all computers at the same time. Doing this would greatly increase the speed of accessing the information or files stored on such a decentralized website. Imagine streaming videos or music through such a network. It could truly be an amazing sight.
Litecoin is similar to Bitcoin in many of its characteristics, and is also one of the more veteran cryptocurrencies out there. However, there are two main differences between Litecoin and Bitcoin; Speed and amount. While it takes 10 minutes to create a Bitcoin block, Litecoin demands roughly 2.5 minutes to create a block – meaning 4 times the speed. Moreover, Litecoin attracts many users as it can produce 4 times the quantity of Bitcoin! However, as Litecoin uses highly complex cryptography, often mining it is more complicated than other cryptocurrencies.
NOTE: Once you have Coinbase down, try moving onto GDAX. It’s, in overly simple terms, like a better version of Coinbase with lower fees. Coinbase operates both platforms, and both use the same logins. GDAX is the preferred exchange of many Bitcoin traders in the U.S. It caters to both pros and novices. After you master that, then consider exchanges like Bittrex and Binance.
Digital currency is our future and there is money to be made with digital currency. I know banks dont like it because all of the fees they have been charging for years and we didn’t have a choice but to say ok…..digital currency is our option, that gives us choices!
Risk Warning: Trading on the Forex market involves substantial risks, including complete possible loss of funds and other losses and is not suitable for all members. Clients should make an independent judgement as to whether trading is appropriate for them in the light of their financial condition, investment experience, risk tolerance and other factors.
Always pay attention to Bitcoin. Most altcoins (every cryptocurrency except Bitcoin) are pegged more closely to Bitcoin than Asian currencies were to the USD during the Asian Financial Crisis. If Bitcoin price pump drastically, altcoins price can go down as people try to exit altcoins to ride the BTC profits; inversely, if Bitcoin prices dump drastically, altcoin prices can go down, too, as people exit altcoins to exchange back into fiat. The best times for altcoin growth appear when Bitcoin shows organic growth or decline, or remains stagnant in price.
African can now get Vitcoin easily on the cryptocurrency trading website cryptoafrica.com. There is equally enough information and your coins are delivered between 30mins to 4 hours compared to coinbase that takes weeks
The good thing about Kraken is you can buy using FIAT and they charge you next to nothing to withdraw your funds. Most other sites charge higher fees when you buy and then again when you withdraw so you get bitten twice, so to speak.
Previously, the GDAX was called the Bitcoin Exchange, but mid-2016 they decided to rebrand. From a product standpoint, you can tell they built GDAX with their own engineers, as the user experience is similar to Coinbase.
Well that’s true for professional traders, or say someone who is trading with large amount and expects a profit everyday it’s his job. But with casual traders, someone like me, they don’t usually set a goal or anything just trade with small amounts and hope you gain some profit at end of day.
Cryptocurrency is volatile! There is always the chance that the market will crash, or that you will face some other catastrophe. Cryptocurrency isn’t a centrally controlled and regulated fiat currency. If you lose a coin or someone cheats you, there is nothing you can do about it (which is why you want to have 2-factor authentication set-up).
The government is also asking financial institutions to step up their oversight of the virtual currency sector. Lenders were told to closely monitor crypto trading that exceeds 10 million won ($9,338) a day or 20 million won ($18,676) per week, and also crypto trading accounts owned by corporations or groups and report any suspicious activity to the authorities.
Hello, This chart is only valid once the condition indicated is met. Which is breaking below 9200$ as indicated in the chart. We have three possibilities one of which will work out (again once the condition is met) The first possibility is finding support on the March 2017 uptrend line which is also the end of the cloud as well as a fib level. The second …
The problem is most of us are seeing a movie in our heads about life, instead of what’s actually right in front of our noses. To the degree that reality doesn’t match up with what we want to think about it, we go with what we want to think about it. For most humans giving up their belief systems is the same thing as death. They would rather die, literally, than change their mind.
The proliferation of the virtual currency and the accompanying trading frenzy have raised eyebrows among regulators globally, though many central banks have refrained from supervising cryptocurrencies themselves.
Cryptocurrency Trading is an alternative way to get involved in the Crypto-World! It doesn’t require mining hardware nor investing in hyips or bitcoin cloud mining (which always has risk involved in their integrity).
Although there were controversies as to the actual founder, all that is irrelevant now as the digital currency has gained acceptance across boards and in different businesses. In November 2008, Satoshi Nakamoto posted a paper to a cryptography mailing list, which he titled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System”. In the paper, he gave details on the methods of using a peer-to-peer network in generating “a system for electronic transactions without relying on trust”.
