Dear Friends! D4rkEnergY is so happy to be back! He was banned for 24 hours for using swear words, so that’s why you guys haven’t heard from me. Before I’ll start with the analysis, I will say some few words. Let me be very clear! My 15,000 USD prediction will probably be wrong. I told you – I’m not afraid to admit, if I make a mistake. I will say, that every …

For instance, your financial record that includes all the transactions you have made, your current balance, and other related details are available on your bank’s server. So what if the server gets hacked? This will compromise your financial information because everything is stored in a single location. That is where a technology based on the concepts of decentralization helps; that is where blockchains come into play.

Simply put, whenever a user sends a certain amount of Bitcoins to another user, a third user verifies this transaction and publicly notates it in a ledger which is accessible by anyone. This ledger is called the “blockchain.” As time goes on, more and more users see the transaction in the blockchain and are able to verify it again. The more times each transaction is verified, the more secured it becomes.
Sharp, the belief that things under the umbrella of the USA are not in some way, shape or form generated, regulated or presided over by something larger and more powerful than yourself is a naive miscalculation in your thought process.
That doesn’t work for the market. The markets are a lesson in humility. You will learn to see things as they actually are versus how you imagine them to be or you will get taken out to the woodshed and beaten with a rubber hose. In other words you will lose all your money just like that idiot who sold his car to play the markets. The markets are economic Darwinism and they have no mercy.
With many coins disappearing as fast as they emerge and a good helping of scams being run in the crypto world, the possibility of losing money is as real as Trump’s presidency. Ensuring you have enough money to live will increase your confidence, relaxing in the knowledge you have your bases covered if you blow your whole account balance.
Bitcoin holds a dominant place in my cryptoasset portfolio. As a result of recent changes in UK regulations I have allocated my entire personal pension (like a US 401k or retirement account) into Bitcoin via the XBTProvider ETN.
So how exactly does the blockchain function? It’s actually a lot simpler than you think. Whenever a transaction is authorized and added to the ledger, it is replicated amongst all the nodes on the network. This means that every computer that is connected to a network which is using a blockchain has a copy of this ledger stored on their machine. Every time another transaction occurs, it is updated. Because these ledgers are simultaneously being kept on multiple machines, messing with or editing them is pretty much impossible. Furthermore, because it is being replicated and updated on all machines, there is no single point of failure, meaning if something happens to one ledger, there are thousands of others that can verify the data and omit the faulty one.
I haven’t been as active day trading lately (since most of my funds are illiquid in angel investment opportunities) but its definitely possible to make a living as long as you follow the market closely and know when to walk away.
What’s important to note is that bitcoin accounts for about 50% of the entire cryptocurrency market, and has the highest volume. It is undoubtedly the most important currency today. You’ll also notice a difference between the original version of bitcoin, Bitcoin Classic (BTC), and a newer version of bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Bitcoin Cash is a spinoff off of the original bitcoin blockchain. I’m not going to get into the technical differences between Bitcoin Classic and Bitcoin Cash, but understand they are separate currencies. So far, Bitcoin Classic seems to be favored by the public over Bitcoin Cash, and has an 8X higher market cap. But when people say “bitcoin” (lowercase) they could be referring to to either currency.
I seriously doubt it. The markets are way too volatile and there are too many new coins that spring up and turn out to be just a flash in the pan. Maybe once things stabilize a little, sure, but as of right now, the market is just too young.
Goldman Sachs says blockchain technology “has the potential to redefine transactions” and will “change everything”. But anyone who claims to fully understand how blockchain works, and is not named Satoshi Nakamoto, is probably lying to you. And anyone who claims to be Nakamoto himself, is probably also lying to you. Fortunately, just like the internet, you don’t need to know how blockchain works to use it.

While there will be significant volatility in the price and valuation of bitcoin over the coming years, I strongly believe it and the entire asset class of cryptocurrencies will become a core part of the financial system within 3 years or less. There is enormous risk in trading these assets—more so than gold, REITS and other commodities—but the global market capitalization of cryptocurrencies ($148 billion today) I expect to pass $1 trillion by 2019.
There is a solution. Buy on margin at the dips. The beauty of this is that you do not need to add funds to your account, you merely avail yourself of the leverage already available. Use Bitmex Exchange.
Once you create an account on Coinbase (or another exchange), you will need to verify your identity by uploading a picture of your drivers license or passport. This only takes a few minutes, then you can fund the account.
Williams Indicator, also referred to as Williams Percent Range (%R), is a momentum indicator which measures the overbought and oversold levels of a financial asset. These levels establish entry and exit points in the market, which in return maximizes a trader’s gains and minimizes their losses. The period in which this indicator is is 14; being 14 weeks on a weekly chart and 14 hours on an hourly chart.
However, the actual details of a coin’s purpose will vary from business to business. You’ll more often than not find that a coin has been created for relatively arbitrary purposes. There’s a lot of dummy stock in the blockchain buzzword, don’t be fooled.
