Tron & Upfiring Continue Face Off in File-Sharing Arms Race
Since the announcement of BitTorrents BTT token, the cryptocurrency world has been buzzing. The soon-to-be Tron based token has drawn the attention of cryptocurrency and torrenting enthusiasts alike. BTT will be used as a store of value and the in-house currency of the decentralized file sharing platform. BitTorrent is a pillar in the world decentralization movement and a great step forward in the fields of blockchain and decentralization. Satoshi Nakamoto himself named BitTorrent as a great example of a decentralized network that could have a token with monetary value. The highly influential CEO of Binance, Changpeng Zhao also commented on the potential importance of BitTorrent's move to tokenize.

Bitcoin Retracing Weekly Gains
The move from $3800 to $4000 wasn´t natural. A single $200 candle on January 9 took the cryptocurrency to the psychological number of $4000. During this past week, with slightly rising volume Bitcoin attempted to break upwards to test the $4200 resistance level and bouncing off of it immediately. What in normal market conditions can be seen as consolidation, in this current bear market where liquidity is low and bots have taken front seats to mandating price action, Bitcoin could not break resistance and retraced $150 within an hour. This, now typical, formation informally known as a Bart Simpson is the zeitgeist of the current market. Low volumes and very few human actors providing liquidity leave a fertile ground for trading bots to trigger moves to the upside and downside. In these cases, liquidity is provided by stop losses. Only a moderate push to the downside triggers bot action, which lead the price down to the nearest support.

While Ethereum (ETH) had a great start in mid-January 2018, recording a value of $1400 in mid January, it failed to maintain it's glory. In the recent market crash, the crypto asset plummeted to a mere $80 value. However, the present scenario doesn't spell doom for Ethereum as it's present value rests at $150. A startling 80% increase has been noted in the past 30 days. Ethereum has finally managed to overtake Ripple (XRP) and restored it's earlier position (Ethereum ranked 2nd on all cryptocurrency exchanges), prior to the market crash. The graph denotes the progression of Ethereum in the past 30 days.

How High Can Ripple Go?
After the brutal bear market of 2018, which included several steep drops, many have been left wondering which cryptocurrencies will emerge as survivors, if any at all. In a space filled with scams, manipulation and immaturity, some blockchain companies stand out as more serious and useful projects. Ripple is one of these standouts. There's no shortage of opinions regarding which of these coins will prove to be valuable and which become useless and ultimately sink to zero, but if you examine the partnerships that Ripple has forged you'll begin to see the enormous potential for usage and growth.

Beginner's Guide to Buying Altcoins in 2019
Buying Bitcoin, Ether, and altcoins is getting easier by the day. Plus, many experts expect 2019 to be the year of Dapps and mass adoption. When you add in all the direct fiat-to-crypto options that could be in the pipelines, it's plain to see that the time to get on the altcoin train is now. For many new crypto buyers, the journey begins with buying Bitcoin. Bitcoin is the most recognized name in the space; but, Ethereums growth has also made ETH a viable option to use to buy a variety of altcoins. A lot of exchanges out there do not exactly have the most user-friendly qualities. Coinmama for example, is a site that accepts USD for Bitcoin and several other coins but they do not provide users with wallets so this could get tricky for unprepared newbies resulting in the loss of time, or even worse, funds. Other exchanges may be more accommodating for those who are new to crypto, but the fees are will most likely be much higher.
