Ride the bitcoin wave with these 11 cryptocurrency-related stocks - MarketWatch
Published: Dec 18, 2017 12:41 p.m. ET Exchanges, chip makers and blockchain companies are safer investments I have been flooded with requests from investors wanting to invest in bitcoin-related stocks. Such investors typically are not comfortable sending money to a bitcoin exchange that they know nothing about. The good news is that three established exchanges, Cboe CBOE, +2.00% CME CME, +0.40% and Nasdaq NDAQ, +2.52% are starting futures on bitcoin. However, most investors are not comfortable trading futures. For most investors, my recommendation is to stay away from bitcoin futures due to extremely high risk.

Ethereum Classic (ETC) Hidden Secret on Coinbase One Month after Listing Bitcoin Isle
There are reasons why many digital coins dream of being listed on Coinbase and the magic can be traced back to the listing of Ethereum Classic (ETC) on the platform just a month ago. The controversial listing that left bigger coins including Ripple (XRP) in the cold has seen increased adoption of the Ethereum forked outfit. The controversy surrounding the listing brought the less known coin into the limelight. With many investors looking at the price first when investing on virtual currencies, it appears the coin is offering a better value proposition that most coins at the moment. Many had written off the coin prior to its listing and are now coming back to tap into its potential.

Bitcoin price to 'double' in 2018 cryptocurrency boom Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin expected to surge | Metro News
The price of Bitcoin will double within six months and regain the astonishing heights it reached before its value plunged in the recent ?cryptopocalypse?. That?s the opinion of one analyst who claims to have spotted a pattern in the famously unpredictable behaviour of the Bitcoin market. Anyone who can accurately foresee cryptocurrency price changes stands to become extremely wealthy, profiting by purchasing virtual coins when the price is low and then selling high. But Bitcoin, Ethereum and all the other cryptocurrencies are famously volatile, meaning that foolproof predictions are impossible. Thomas Lee, managing partner at the financial research firm Fundstrat Global Advisors, expects to see a new record peak for Bitcoin by July, based on analysis of the currency?s 22 corrections since 2010.

I Forgot My PIN : An Epic Tale of Losing $30,000 in Bitcoin | WIRED
The Trezor: January 4, 2016: 7.4 BTC = $3,000 In January 2016, I spent $3,000 to buy 7.4 bitcoins. At the time, it seemed an entirely worthwhile thing to do. I had recently started working as a research director at the Institute for the Future?s Blockchain Futures Lab, and I wanted firsthand experience with bitcoin, a cryptocurrency that uses a blockchain to record transactions on its network. I had no way of knowing that this transaction would lead to a white-knuckle scramble to avoid losing a small fortune. My experiments with bitcoin were fascinating. It was surprisingly easy to buy stuff with the cryptocurrency. I used the airBitz app to buy Starbucks credit. I used Purse.io to buy a wireless security camera doorbell from Amazon. I used bitcoin at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles to buy graphic novels.

Bitcoin Price Fall: Investors Hold, Saying Cryptocurrency Crash Is a Yearly Pattern
The price of bitcoin and other major cryptocurrencies has fallen significantly over the past 24 hours amid fears of regulator clampdowns, continuing an annual trend that has seen bitcoin?s price consistently crash in mid-January. Bitcoin?s price fell to as low as $10,105 on Wednesday, according to the CoinDesk Price Index, but has since rebounded to $10,283. At its peak in December last year, one bitcoin was worth almost $20,000. The dramatic fall comes as some investors look to cash in on the significant gains, though others are choosing to hold on to the virtual currency, citing similar price falls at the start of recent years.

A Fifth of All Bitcoin Is Missing
Think of them as the metal detectors of the digital age. Instead of combing beaches for gold, these experts use everything from supercomputers to hypnotherapy to reunite people with their lost cryptocurrency. According to Chainalysis, a blockchain-analysis firm based in New York City, about a fifth of all bitcoin?around $20 billion?is lost, most of it permanently. When people purchase bitcoin, the details of their transactions are stored in software called a ?wallet,? which they can unlock with a personal-identification number.... The once-popular thin flip phone, rendered obsolete by the iPhone, will be reintroduced as a device made by Lenovo?s Motorola Mobility unit and marketed by Verizon. It?s expected to be sold in the U.S. as soon as February.

Whats the Worth of Tim Drapers 2014 Bitcoin Investment Now
In June 2014, the U.S. Marshals Service organized an auction to sell almost 30,000 Bitcoins. The bitcoins were seized once the famous Internet black market ?Silk Road? was shut down. It was then reported that another lot of 144,336 bitcoins were seized during the same raid. Allegedly, they belonged to Ross Ulbricht, the founder, and mastermind behind Silk Road. However, the Marshals decided to offer 29,658 bitcoins, divided into 10 lots, to interested parties. In order to ensure a certain degree of seriousness, the Marshals requested a $200,000 deposit from the potential bidders. What followed is the statement issued by the Marshals, noting that the auction ?resulted in one winning bidder?.

After the Bitcoin Boom: Hard Lessons for Cryptocurrency Investors - The New York Times
By Nathaniel Popper and Su-Hyun Lee SAN FRANCISCO ? Pete Roberts of Nottingham, England, was one of the many risk-takers who threw their savings into cryptocurrencies when prices were going through the roof last winter. Now, eight months later, the $23,000 he invested in several digital tokens is worth about $4,000, and he is clearheaded about what happened. ?I got too caught up in the fear of missing out and trying to make a quick buck,? he said last week. ?The losses have pretty much left me financially ruined.? Mr. Roberts, 28, has a lot of company. After the latest round of big price drops, many cryptocurrencies have given back all of the enormous gains they experienced last winter. The value of all outstanding digital tokens has fallen by about $600 billion, or 75 percent, since the peak in January, according to data from the website coinmarketcap.com.

Bitcoin will not recover until panic recedes - analysts RT Business News
?Growth will not happen until the current panic recedes, and this may take weeks and months,? Mikhail Mashchenko, an analyst at social network for investors eToro, told RT. "Those who want to invest in the cryptocurrencies may try to start opening positions on it. At least, it is much more reasonable than waiting for the return of the exchange rate to its maximum highs.? The last week?s sell-off was partially triggered by a panic on the US stock markets, since venture capital like bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is the first thing investors jettison when turbulence occurs in traditional markets, he added.

Inside an Undercover Bitcoin Sting | Time Close
?When I first got into this, I?d have to explain what it was because no one would have any idea,? says Jason Klein, as he sips tea at a cafe in the Ozarks on a cold winter day. ?Now it seems like I could walk up to almost anyone in this room and they?d know.? Klein, a small business owner who lives in Nixa, Mo., is talking about bitcoin, a sensational invention that recently turned his life upside down. His story ? involving undercover federal agents, courtroom drama and a community?s outpouring of support ? is one he hasn?t shared until now. The tale highlights how entrancing this new technology can be, as well as the legal confusion surrounding cryptocurrencies like bitcoin: digital tokens that are minted, essentially, by computers doing puzzles.

We use cookies to improve our service for you. You can find more information in our data protection declaration. A further drop in the value of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies has recently left investors nursing heavy losses. Many proponents are holding out for a new breakout, if their digital assets can go mainstream. Social Media influencers may be predicting an "insane recovery" soon in the value of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, but many would-be investors can only look longingly at last December's $19,764 (?17,154) price, and wonder 'What have I just missed?' 2017 was a stratospheric year that saw Bitcoin grow almost 2,000 percent from barely $1,000 in January to eye-watering all-time highs. This year, however, holders of the world's biggest digital currency have seen much of their considerable profit disappear.
