This Scaling Tech Could Let You Sync Bitcoin Straight From Your Phone
?Maybe we don?t have to store everything ourselves.? That?s Tadge Dryja, cryptocurrency research scientist at the MIT Digital Currency Initiative, explaining the concept behind his bitcoin scaling solution, ?utrexxo.? Based on an idea that has been pursued by developers for many years, utrexxo seeks to streamline an aspect of bitcoin?s code that leads to heavy storage requirements over time. Simply put, it addresses what is known as the UTXO set ? or the code that gives information on whether a bitcoin has been spent. Currently, bitcoin nodes must download the entirety of this information, what is known as the ?state,? in order to verify it.

Krieger on Bitcoin and what's really "the bubble" (Jan
Last week, I was offered an opportunity to write an opinion piece for The Hill. I took advantage of the offer and put something together addressing the whole ?is Bitcoin a bubble? debate, and I?m pleased to say it was published earlier this morning. It?s important to me that I don?t just preach to the choir when it comes to my unconventional views, and I hope this will help me reach a wider and more mainstream audience. Below are a couple brief excerpts from the piece, published in full at The Hill: For one thing, bubbles don?t do what bitcoin has done since its inception in 2009?They don?t come right back a couple of years later and soar again to a new price 10 times greater than the previous bubble?s high, which is what bitcoin has done after each one of its three or four previous ?bubbles? burst.

Wrote an article about alternative ways to measure crypto market cap - 20% of bitcoin likely to be lost, so why is this included in the market cap
Why knowing the market cap of a cryptocurrency is important Simply knowing the price of a cryptocurrency does not give you a lot of information. Market capitalization is much more important in understanding how a coin is performing. It serves as a starting point to compare and value a cryptocurrency because it represents how much a network is actually worth and makes it easier to quickly and accurately compare cryptocurrencies. It does, however, have its own shortcomings. Problems with current market capitalization Market capitalization on and various similar websites is misleading. It is calculated by using this simple formula:

Predicting the price of Bitcoin is a full time job for many people. The rewards are huge and as many have learnt, getting it wrong can be very costly. In this article, we will review the thoughts and Bitcoin price predictions of a number of charting Experts. Two of these analysts also have an extremely good fundamental knowledge of the Bitcoin and Crypto space also, namely Willy Woo and Tone Vays. We use a number of indicators within our team, but in the main the Hardforking team are not day traders of Bitcoin, preferring to take a longer term view. In saying that most have been day traders and some still are?.the crazy ones. Some of the team are active in the OTC space, over the counter purchasing of Bitcoin. Other Hardforking members are miners and others are technical analysts. I am personally not holding Bitcoin or Cryptocurrencies at present and nothing in this article should be taken as financial advice. These are my opinions and reviews of expert opinion.

Bitcoin Mining Gaining Traction in Mongolia, 1000 New Miners set to Launch in 2019
Mongolia has emerged as the new destination for bitcoin-miners with its cheap electricity and cold weather. Over 1000 new miners are said to move to the East Asian country in 2019. Even with the bear market, Tokyo based crypto-wallet Ginco has set its mining facilities in Ulaanbaatar, the Mongolian capital. Electricity costs in Mongolia are said to be three times cheaper than Japan and even cheaper than China. Yuma Furubayashi, CEO of Ginco, told Nikkie Asian Review: ?The business environment is increasingly harsh, but we can still produce a profit.? With China?s crackdown on cryptocurrencies, miners are looking for alternatives and Mongolia appears to be a clear choice with Canada and Russia up for contention. Even Bitmain, the Chinese giant which has traditionally held a monopoly over the market, has had to axe its employees to survive this bear market.

I want to buy pizza with Bitcoin again - VentureBeat
The world can?t seem to define crypto, and that is a problem. Not that there aren?t a million different explanations floating around the internet distinguishing money system coins from utility tokens from security tokens, there are. The big problem arises from how all these different crypto entities are being treated by nearly everyone in the space, longtime hodler and newcomer alike. No matter the function, all crypto is being handled in the same, investment-minded manner, and it is holding the technology back. Cryptocurrencies were originally a fringe technology. Your tech-savvy friend might have owned some Bitcoin early on, but they also might have owned a large collection of comic books or action figures, which didn?t scream to the rest of the world ?this person is really onto something.? Crypto existed more conceptually than as an actual system to transact in. Who can forget the famous 10,000 Bitcoin for a pizza story? At the time, crypto was simply an experiment in peer-to-peer transaction.

Bitwise Will Take Another Crack At A Bitcoin ETF
Published: Jan 11, 2019 11:29 a.m. ET In the U.S. market, an exchange traded fund linked to bitcoin remains elusive. Bitwise Asset Management, a provider of cryptocurrency indexes and funds, is looking to change that. In 2018, ETF industry observers and crypto market fans were tantalized by the prospects of a U.S.-listed bitcoin ETF coming to market only to be rebuffed by the Securities and Exchange Commission at every turn. Last year, the SEC's Division of Trading and Markets turned back applications for bitcoin-related ETFs from issuers such as ProShares, Direxion and GraniteShares. The commission also delayed a decision on an institutionally-focused bitcoin ETF from VanEck and fintech firm SolidX.

First Bitcoin Transaction Anniversary
by Enrique Salazar | Jan 12, 2019 | Bitcoin | 0 comments Ten years ago today, on January 12th, 2009, Satoshi Nakamoto sent Hal Finney 10 bitcoins as a test. It was the first Bitcoin transaction ever made. Today, more than 280,000 transactions per day are processed on the Bitcoin blockchain. Hal Finney was a respected Bitcoin contributor and known computer scientist. He attempted to create a cryptographic currency based on a Proof of Work system before Bitcoin was created. Finney helped Satoshi find bugs on the Bitcoin software when it was first released and one of the first miners. Thanks to visionaries like him cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology have prospered and their usage continues to grow around the world.

CNBC Trader: Bitcoin (BTC) At $3,000 Would Cause Panic En-Masse
Anthony Grisanti, a CNBC guest and futures trader, recently sat down with the outlet?s ?Futures Now? segment to talk about Bitcoin (BTC). While he claimed that he had no reservations against the cryptocurrency, Grisanti seemed overly bearish on BTC, even though fundamentals for the underlying blockchain are relatively outperforming. Grisanti, the founder of GRZ Energy, noted that BTC, a supposed non-correlated asset, should have popped when U.S. equities, like a number of stocks listed on the Nasdaq, sold off. The fact that Bitcoin?s bear trend only saw a brief abatement (if at all) is a worrying sign in Grisanti?s eyes, so the trader noted that he expects for the low-$3,000 level to be tested.
