Georgi Georgiev | Feb 08, 2019 | 09:00 Georgi Georgiev | Feb 08, 2019 | 09:00 Bitcoin hashrate, the computing power of the network, has hit levels last seen in November 2018. Bitmain-operated hashrate, however, has hit its lowest point in the last 16 months. As of yesterday, February 7th, Bitcoin hashrate has hit over 50 quintillion hashes per second according to data from Blockchain.com. The last time the computing power of Bitcoin?s network saw these levels was in November 2018. The rise in hashrate translates into new miners joining the network as the mining difficulty has dropped for the first time in 2019 by about 1.5 percent at the end of January.

Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal is Bullish for Bitcoin Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal is Bullish for Bitcoin
February 08, 2019 7:09 PM Reading: Why Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?s Green New Deal is Bullish for Bitcoin Esther Kim | Feb 08, 2019 | 11:00 Esther Kim | Feb 08, 2019 | 11:00 US presidential hopeful Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has unwittingly outed herself as a Bitcoin bull after declaring money printing would form part of her fiscal policy. In an interview with NPR Feb. 7, Ocasio-Cortez detailed her stance on monetary policy, as well as how she intended to finance the social and economic projects she plans. The funding, she said, would necessarily have to come from other sources beyond taxation, having proposed a 70 percent income tax on the super-rich.

The Looming Financial Crisis: What Will Happen To Bitcoin - HackerNoon The Looming Financial Crisis: What Will Happen To Bitcoin  - HackerNoon
February 07, 2019 7:27 PM You may have noticed that I have been MIA for the past few weeks, but fear not, I am still hanging around (although very busy!) and have been involved in the Cryptocurrency space as much as ever. In the midst of the Great Recession (the economic downturn during the late 2000s and early 2010s), Satoshi Nakamoto released the now-famous paper, ?Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System?. Satoshi proposed ?a purely peer-to-peer version of electronic cash that would allow online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution?. It is widely accepted that Satoshi was unhappy with the economic situation at the time (centralized financial institutions, bank bail-outs, etc.) which led to the inception of Bitcoin (in 2008) with its networking ?going live? on 3rd of January in 2009. The first block (genesis block) included the following message ?The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks?, taking aim at Alistair Darling who was preparing a 500Bn rescue package for UK Banks.

#TipsInBitcoin a movement to spread crypto awareness: The Accointing team started with Guatemala #TipsInBitcoin a movement to spread crypto awareness: The Accointing team started with Guatemala
February 06, 2019 9:15 PM Accointing Website: http://bit.ly/2CLK79G #TipsInBitcoin a movement we want to create to educate people about Bitcoin by giving $BTC as tips. We took the chance to show the purpose of decentralized money to a small cooperative in San Juan La Laguna, Guatemala. The idea was to show the concept of Bitcoin and how in the future, the community of San Juan La Laguna will not only be able to purchase products in a peer to peer manner, but also be their own bank. Through this they will no longer have to deal with the large barriers to opening up a bank account in this banking system. PS. If you would like to bring some joy to Erica and Elizabeth please feel free to tip them in BTC as well. Here is the proof of my transaction to them. Their ? address is: 1GLmGY7UZAe6vGprKdQCC5s4ayFdpmuMoM
