Crypto Exchanges Register Their Best Year yet in 2018 Despite Price Dip As Bitcoin Dominates
Bitcoin may have shed 80 percent of its value in the last 12 months, but crypto exchanges had their best year yet. Coinbase, the biggest exchange in the U.S, experienced a 21 percent increase in 2018, with the first quarter of the year being the most successful. However, the volume on some crypto exchanges dipped significantly, mirroring the price dip. On Binance however, the number of trades has soared towards the end of the year.  The report, which was released by research firm Diar, also revealed the steadily increasing Bitcoin dominance. With the prices of most altcoins shedding over 95 percent of their value, investors turned to Bitcoin en masse. On Binance, Bitcoin?s dominance gained 11 percent to account for 50 percent of the total volume. On Kraken, Bitcoin?s dominance went down mid-year to 36 percent. It regained its dominance towards the end of the year, standing at 52 percent in the fourth quarter.

Living on Bitcoin Day 1: That's Not Going to Work
Living on Bitcoin Day 1: ?That?s Not Going to Work? ?The point is to get people to think about bitcoin, not spend it. I don?t think it?s good for that. It?s not meant to be used like cash,? Jeremy Gardner, founder of Ausum Ventures, advised me. ?Satoshi created a decentralized store of value,? probably encapsulates his thesis that bitcoin is best unspent ? better to hoard it like gold. To Gardner, using it as a currency is not only impractical. It is counterintuitive. After all, journalist Kashmir Hill experimented with living on bitcoin as early as 2013, so it should be easier now, right? Well, it is and it isn?t. Nearly six years later, I?m discovering that, while bitcoin?s payment infrastructure has advanced, its use as a method of payment, at least in San Francisco, has seemingly regressed.

Venezuelans bought USD $1M/day during Xmas week on LocalBitcoins alone
Venezuela, después de Rusia, es el país en el que más bitcoins se negocian a través de la plataforma P2P LocalBitcoins. Le gana a Estados Unidos.  En Venezuela, el salario mínimo equivale en estos momentos a aproximadamente 6 dólares estadounidenses (depende de la tasa a la que se calcule). Con un sueldo así, un ciudadano de ese país, si acaso, puede comprar un kilo de cebolla, uno de arroz y un cartón de huevos. Todo el salario del mes se le va en esa pequeña compra. La mayor parte de la población apenas sobrevive entre las bolsas de alimentos que vende el gobierno (solo a quienes tienen el carnet oficial) y las remesas que envían familiares desde el exterior, que cada vez alcanzan para menos, pues los precios varían en cuestión ya no de días sino de horas.
