Bitcoin forecast: Bitcoin's time is over as cryptos overtake in 2019 claims expert | City & Business | Finance | Express
Bitcoin?s lacklustre development and overall lack of technical support will be the token?s ultimate demise. As tech companies invest in blockchain technologies and provide the time and effort needed to nourish digital currencies, some experts believe bitcoin will fail to keep up. According to Samuel Leach, founder of multi-purpose crypto token Yield Coin, 2019 is promising to be a particularly exciting year of ?real cryptocurrency growth?. However, in his opinion, bitcoin might not necessarily ride the incoming tide of crypto progress even if centralised regulation recognises the cryptocurrency's worth.

Crypto advocate: Bitcoin's value will come in time
Bitcoin's narrative is hard to pin down, but as with early internet stocks, real traction will come in time, cryptocurrency advocate Meltem Demirors told CNBC on Monday. "New technologies that shift the paradigm take a long time to really understand," Demirors, who acts as chief strategy officer at digital asset manager CoinShares, said on CNBC's "Fast Money." Despite bitcoin's aspiration to be a safe haven asset, the cryptcurrency has not seen a rally with the stumble of the Turkish lira, which hit a fresh all-time low against the dollar on Monday. Except for a brief rally in July, bitcoin has been on a near-steady downward slide since briefly topping $19,000 in December. Even the announcement more than a week ago ? that the Intercontinental Exchange would help create an open and regulated digital asset ecosystem ? brought little movement in bitcoin's price.

Tron: What to Know About, How to Buy TRX, New Ripple and Bitcoin Rival | Inverse
Another day, another upstart cryptocurrency on the rise. After huge weeks for bitcoin alternatives like Ripple, Stellar, and Ethereum, the latest to see a big spike is Tron ? and its connection to China?s most powerful tech entrepreneur could make it the most intriguing challenger to bitcoin?s throne we?ve yet seen. Like Ripple, Tron and its tronix coin have experienced a meteoric rise since the middle of December. As recently as last month, the coin?s value was less than a penny, but it reached highs Friday of about 26 cents. That surge was enough to make it briefly the sixth biggest cryptocurrency in the world, and its current $14.1 billion market cap makes it the seventh biggest as of this writing.

This week's Bitcoin crash was all about fraud and regulation - The Verge clock menu more-arrow no yes Verge3
Cryptocurrencies have had a rough week: the value of bitcoin plunged to a mere 50 percent of its 2017 peak, and other currencies, such as Ethereum, Ripple, and Litecoin have seen double-digit losses compared to their heights from last year. Tuesday also witnessed the collapse of BitConnect, an anonymously operated crypto exchange that had been repeatedly accused of running a Ponzi scheme via its proprietary BCC currency. Taken together, these events may simply act as another reminder of the ?volatility? of the cryptocurrency market, which saw bitcoin rise to a peak of $19,783 on December 17th. Bitcoin has gone through multiple crashes before: in spring 2011, in November 2013, and in January 2017. However, this current bubble comes against a new backdrop: a global tide of regulation against the inchoate cryptocurrency industry. On one hand, these regulations may be scaring bitcoin investors into selling their coins now before the full impact of regulation makes itself felt. On the other, it may also be threatening suspect exchanges such as BitConnect, with its own token declining in value by 46 percent between December 17th and January 15th ? the day before it announced its closure.

6 cryptocurrencies that could become the next Bitcoin | TechRadar
By Jonas DeMuro 2018-02-03T10:00:19.33Z Internet   Cryptocurrencies continue to vex investors, while simultaneously crowning new millionaires in this challenging time. While Bitcoin is the dominant virtual currency that grabs much of the attention, there are plenty of other cryptocurrencies out there, some of which are also popular and relatively high-profile such as Ethereum and Ripple. But there are many lesser known virtual coins, too; literally thousands of them. While it remains relatively uncommon to actually purchase anything with these virtual currencies, there?s still plenty of money that could potentially be made with these more obscure coins that have been likened to the ?penny stocks? of the cryptocurrency world ? and the right one could be due for a meteoric rise.

RBI Ban on Cryptocurrency Trade:What Indian Bitcoin Holders can Do! - The Better India
by Rayomand Engineer July 6, 2018, 5:18 pm As soon as cryptocurrencies surfaced, they were lapped up by people globally. Here was this unregulated virtual currency, which was helping people cash out in millions.

Starting today, the banks won?t allow cryptocurrency payments through their systems thanks to an RBI mandate, reports NDTV.

RBI Ban: From Today, You Can't Buy Or Sell Bitcoin, Other Cryptocurrency Coins
Bitcoin ban: Reserve Bank had given three-month long deadline to banks Reserve Bank of India's (RBI) deadline given to banks to snap the ties with entities that deal with cryptocurrencies finally ends today. Exactly three months ago, India's central bank had instructed the banks to end the relations (if any) with cryptocurrency-driven companies.  The RBI released the circular on April 6 that was challenged in the Delhi High Court, which initially refused to grant an injunction. Even the Supreme Court declined to issue a stay order on July 3. The matter is still before the Supreme Court that will hear the matter on July 20. Ever since the ban was imposed, there was sentiment that the cryptocurrency market will survive the RBI ban.

13 Types Of Cryptocurrency That Aren't Bitcoin | Bankrate
Move over, bitcoin. The world of virtual currencies is getting very crowded with so-called altcoins. Bitcoin?s explosion in prominence has led to the growth of dozens of other cryptocurrencies. Meanwhile, companies are betting that blockchain, the underlying technology of bitcoin, could fundamentally change the economy, leading to a surge in blockchain projects. The following is a list of some of the most prominent altcoins around. Many are blockchain experiments that use the sale of ?coins? to fund the project and fuel the network. You should definitely do your research if you intend to buy. It?s also worth noting that buying some of these is not exactly easy. In many cases, you?ll likely need to buy bitcoin or ethereum first. As with all investments, but especially ones in the crypto space, avoid investing money that you are not comfortable losing given the volatility of the space.

The 10 Most Important Cryptocurrencies Other Than Bitcoin Academy caret Investopedia Logo
Bitcoin has not just been a trendsetter, ushering in a wave of cryptocurrencies built on a decentralized peer-to-peer network, it?s become the de facto standard for cryptocurrencies , inspiring an ever-growing legion of followers and spinoffs. Before we take a closer look at some of these alternatives to bitcoin, let?s step back and briefly examine what we mean by terms like cryptocurrency and altcoin. A cryptocurrency, broadly defined, is virtual or digital money which takes the form of tokens or ?coins.? While some cryptocurrencies have ventured into the physical world with credit cards or other projects, the large majority remain entirely intangible. The ?crypto? in cryptocurrencies refers to complicated cryptography which allows for a particular digital token to be generated, stored, and transacted securely and, typically, anonymously. Alongside this important ?crypto? feature of these currencies is a common commitment to decentralization; cryptocurrencies are typically developed as code by teams who build in mechanisms for issuance (often, although not always, through a process called ?mining?) and other controls. Cryptocurrencies are almost always designed to be free from government manipulation and control, although as they have grown more popular this foundational aspect of the industry has come under fire.

Bitcoin and almost every other cryptocurrency crashed hard today TechCrunch
Bitcoin has been on a tear this past with the value of the cryptocurrency jumping from $8,000 to nearly $20,000. Well that run hit an abrupt end today as the price crashed as much as 23 percent on Coinbase. The price briefly dipped below $12,000 on some exchanges at around 7:30 am London time. The drop ? which wiped more than $4,000 from the value of bitcoin at one point ? was the highest percentage loss of value that bitcoin has seen this year. The cryptocurrency was valued at just $998 on January 1 2017 and it soared to a record high of nearly $20,000 on some exchanges earlier this week. It isn?t just bitcoin that has lost significant value. Ethereum (down 20 percent), Bitcoin Cash (down 30 percent), Litecoin (down 21 percent) and nearly every high-profile altcoin lost value over the last 24 hours, according to Ripple was up seven percent, and just one of two coins to remain green over the past day.

Bitcoin price: cryptocurrency set to rise after hitting new 2018 low | The Week UK
The price of bitcoin has fallen by over 80% over the past 12 months Bitcoin values are slowly beginning to edge up after the cryptocurrency hit its lowest point of the year last week.   The virtual currency dropped to around $3,280 (£2,580) on Friday evening, before creeping up to around $3,550 (£2,790) per coin as of 9am GMT today, according to ranking site CoinMarketCap.  The recent sell-offs of the cryptocurrency - and the ?epic plunge? in its value, as CNN puts it - have been attributed in part to a warning from US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) commissioner Hester Peirce that she is struggling to convince other members of the agency to approve more bitcoin exchange traded funds.
