Up until now Bitcoin has been, by far, the most powerful contender in the cryptocurrency market. Other alternative coins, such asNamecoin,Solidcoin andLitecoin, have arisen to offer various modifications on the core Bitcoin concept but, despite over a year's worth of development and dozens of attempts, none have achieved anything close to Bitcoin's level of success. Litecoin is perhaps the most prominent out of all the alternatives, its price hovering around$0.07 USD and even slowly increasing over the past six months, but so far the overwhelming majority of merchants and merchant platforms, for that matter have seen no reason to pay attention to them. Now, that may finally change with decentralized cryptocurrency's new kid on the block: Ripple. This posting was first seen by us on 2019-02-24 22:26:04.

When Bubbles Pop: An Infographic When Bubbles Pop: An Infographic
When the bubble pops, people don't realize it at first. When the bubble pops, it's always just another volatile day. It's just a correction. A road bump on the way up. Buy the dip! It'll bounce back, just you wait. Until it doesn't and it becomes painfully apparent that the bull run is over and it's a long a very long way down. And not just for the red candle addled price, but for the network, its transaction counts, and general interest as well. No one likes the bear. But here's some solace: It acts pretty predictably. Network data and activity follow the price, things bottom out, the ecosystem re-achieves an equilibrium and then it makes another run rinse and repeat. It's happened several times before.

Living On Bitcoin Day 2: Being Unbanked Has Been Easy But Also Hard This is the second instalment of reporter Colin Harper's "Living on Bitcoin" experience in San Francisco. Find out what happened to him on Day 1 here. I woke up on Christian's couch stiff-necked and cotton-mouthed. A bit more fitting for the living on internet money survival vibe, yeah A friend of a friend of Christian's roommates (who are starting a business and moving to LA today) was out cold on an air mattress next to a stripped Christmas tree, snoring into the streams of soon-after-sunrise light filtering through the window. Another blow-up mattress adjacent to the couch was vacant. Its former occupant, Julian Martinez, a copywriter at Quantstamp and Christian's friend, had left early in the morning, politely folding his sheets before he left.

Op-Ed: The Weiss Cryptocurrency Ratings Are Laughably Bad | Bitcoin Magazine Verified on Po.et Op-Ed: The Weiss Cryptocurrency Ratings Are Laughably Bad | Bitcoin Magazine Verified on Po.et
Op-Ed: The Weiss Cryptocurrency Ratings Are Laughably Bad In the current cryptocurrency hysteria, everyone is a level 70 blockchain wizard launching a new hedge fund. Weiss Ratings released their cryptocurrency ratings yesterday. In response, they received a lot of criticism on social media. And rightly so. I'll get to the specific issues with the Weiss Cryptocurrency Ratings, but first I need to point out that the low quality of these ratings is merely an illustration of the current hysteria around cryptoassets more generally. Weiss Ratings has a long history as an independent ratings agency covering traditional assets, but it's clear they don't understand Bitcoin at all. However, they've proclaimed that they're the cryptocurrency experts who can tell you whether speculating on the price of a specific token is a safe bet.

Robinhood s First Tentative Steps Into Cryptocurrencies Appeal to Traders | Bitcoin Magazine Verified on Po.et Robinhood s First Tentative Steps Into Cryptocurrencies Appeal to Traders | Bitcoin Magazine Verified on Po.et
The Robinhood mobile app for smartphones, operated by a financial services firm headquartered in Palo Alto, allows individuals to invest in publicly traded companies and exchange-traded funds listed on U.S. stock exchanges without paying a commission.

European Banking Regulators Call for Unity in Crypto Regulations European Banking Regulators Call for Unity in Crypto Regulations
Jimmy has been following the development of blockchain for several years, and he is optimistic about its potential to democratize the financial system.

On January 9, 2019, the European Banking Authority (EBA) published its assessment of crypto laws. The document, which examines the sustainability of EU laws to cryptocurrencies, analyzed the use of digital assets within the EU, as well as some of the pan-EU laws that currently govern them.

Educating the Next Wave of Bitcoin Developers Educating the Next Wave of Bitcoin Developers
Hyperbitcoinization enthusiast and writer Bitcoin is an open-source protocol that anybody can interact with. It is getting attention and attracting participation in different ways, whether it is through speculation, investing and sending money, all the way to contributing to what's underneath the hood. The entire Bitcoin repository is on GitHub, inviting any developer to see the protocol's code and perhaps contribute toward solving existing problems if they can. A noteworthy fact, however, is that the pool of developers today is quite small. It's not an easy field to get into, Jimmy Song, author of Programming Bitcoin and instructor at Programming Blockchain, told Bitcoin Magazine. Interestingly enough, the thing that makes Bitcoin hard to get started on is the cryptography, and that's hard because the math is not familiar to developers. Specifically, finite fields and elliptic curves. This publication was retrieved by us on 2019-01-16 01:26:30. Share this content on social media: Related crypto assets include BTC, TCN.

Living on Bitcoin Day 1:  That s Not Going to Work 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.
