  • A crypto startup is helping you buy things on Amazon with Bitcoin (BTC)
    Moon, a cryptocurrency startup, just revealed its browser extension that ensures anyone with a Bitcoin wallet on the Lightning Network can shop on e-commerce websites like Amazon. Moves are being made This extension was in a testing period with about 250 users beforehand. Essentially, these users would connect their browser extension to Coinbase or another cryptocurrency exchange, and make their purchases. Speaking to CoinDesk, CEO of Moon Ken Kruger says: “[The extension] will pop up a QR code and it will have the lightning invoice, which you could also copy and paste if you can’t use the QR code for some reason, and you’ll be able to pay with your favorite lightning wallet.” Of course, you’re not sending cryptocurrency to Amazon. Instead, there are conversions going on via the extension that trades the crypto to fiat. Unfortunately, we don’t know exactly which technology Moon is using. That said, Kruger claims that this process should “work on almost any e-commerce site” by 2020: “There’s no direct merchant integration. We’re integrating with the Visa and Mastercard networks and we get a cut of the interchange fees that merchants pay every time they receive a credit card transaction.” Charging ahead The startup was ... read more

  • Bitcoin’s [BTC] trillion dollar evaluation would propel other cryptos to achieve Store of Value [SoV] status, claims Pascal Thellmann
    The cryptocurrency market underwent a minor bull run recently which collectively improved some of the major coins’ valuation. Bitcoin [BTC] was one of them, and the cryptosphere has been very optimistic about the coin’s future in the industry. In fact, one of the analysts even went on to say that Bitcoin could breach the market cap of one trillion dollars in the next major bull run. Pascal Thellmann, the CMO of BountyOx and cryptocurrency speculator, believes that if Bitcoin [BTC] reached a multi-trillion dollar evaluation for a store of value [SoV], it would automatically lead to an improved valuation of at least two or three other cryptocurrencies, propelling them to the SoV status. Pascal based his predictions on an event where investors would start hedging their risk with other altcoins. A hedge is basically an investment which reduces the risk of adverse price movements in an asset. Pascal explained that for a coin to be a formidable hedge against the popular Bitcoin [BTC], it would need to outperform the largest cryptocurrency in at least one characteristic and also have one technological advantage. He listed out the characteristics that a potential SoV crypto needs to keep in mind, including the cost ... read more

  • Filecoin and Ethereum Foundation partnering to research VDFs
    Protocol Labs, the creators of the Filecoin (FIL) decentralized storage network, are partnering with the Ethereum Foundation. The goal is to develop “at least one secure, efficient, and usable Verifiable Delay Function (VDF) construction.” New technologies are forming According to a blog from the two groups, a VDF is: “A function that takes at least some amount of time, the “delay,” to generate an output (even if you throw a bunch of processors at it), but whose output can be verified quickly and easily. For those who are interested in diving deeper, here is a succinct written explanation and here is a video describing VDFs and some candidate constructions.” Put simply, a VDF lets you prove that you ran a function while giving someone a way to check this. The succinct explanation details one example, a lottery. Here, you can run a lottery on a blockchain, and use a VDF to help choose the winner. Thanks to this technology, you could check if a miner tried to alter the winnings to give themselves an edge. While still in an introductory state, VDFs are appearing all over the blockchain space. To start, they’re in use during “proofs of replication, randomness beacons, and consensus protocols.” Testing things out That said, ... read more

  • Ethereum (ETH) Likely To Retest $188 Resistance Before Next Decisive Move
    Ethereum (ETH) has started the day in green and as we can see on the daily chart for ETH/USD, the price has been forming higher lows since the beginning of the month. This means that Ethereum (ETH) is now close to a breakout but before that, the price may end up retesting the $188 resistance. This retest will most likely be a sharp wick to the upside as the daily candle is very likely to close below the 200 day EMA that lies below the $188 resistance. RSI for ETH/USD has also found trend line support on the daily time frame and indicates that the price could go higher from here to test the strong resistance at $188 once again. It is pertinent to note that the price faced a strong rejection at this level the last time it tested it. Its next attempt of a retest failed as the price was stopped at the 200 day EMA. Unlike Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) has already tested the previous market structure as resistance and faced a strong rejection. It is extremely unlikely to break past the $188 resistance. In fact, the bulls are going to have a hard time even pushing ... read more

    US presidential hopeful Andrew Yang has recently released a policy proposal which would seek to stimulate innovation and growth in the cryptocurrency sector. As of now, he is the only pro-Bitcoin presidential candidate. Despite cryptocurrencies rapidly becoming a fixture of the U.S. economy, almost none of the 2020 presidential candidates have put out policy proposals on the topic. The only exception is Andrew Yang, a young entrepreneur and philanthropist who has become known as the “Pro-Bitcoin” presidential candidate. Who is Andrew Yang? Yang has been rapidly growing in popularity thanks to a strong internet following, an army of meme-makers, and his signature policy move of providing a universal basic income to every American. Being one of the youngest candidates in a crowded field, Yang seems to have his finger on the pulse of the economy. He is of the firm belief that the future will be one increasingly dominated by artificial intelligence, robotics, and — of course — cryptocurrencies.

    If you want to read a summary of our most recent short-term Dogecoin (DOGE) price analysis and predictions click here. It started with a meme—a meme of a Shiba Inu. The meme spread to the farthest corners of the internet. It made people laugh. It made people happy. On Dec 6, 2013, the meme became something more than a meme. It became Dogecoin. Almost immediately after its initial release, a community had rallied behind the new cryptocurrency. They raised over $55,000 for the Jamaican bobsled team to participate in the 2014 Winter Olympics. Since then, the community has grown, and the price of DOGE has skyrocketed. Of course, it’s still worth much less than $0.01, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. After all, it is Elon Musk’s favorite cryptocurrency:

  • Hot Or Cold? How To Store Your Ethereum
    If you own Ethereum, you’ve probably wondered if you’re storing it in the most effective away. You’ve got to weigh up safety vs ease of use, security vs accessibility in what seems to be a constant battle between hot and cold cryptocurrency storage. What does all this mean? Hot storage, or online storage refers to cryptocurrency that is stored at a location contacted to an online network. A great and common example of this is when you buy cryptocurrency from an exchange and then store it within that exchange, on an exchange based wallet. This is great, because it’s easy to access (you don’t need to worry about losing your private key and can access it anywhere with an internet connection) however, being online does expose you to some risks. Having your assets connected to a network means they can be accessed by bad actors and hackers who could steal your funds. Moreover, in the example of an exchange, what if the exchange goes bust? What happens to your money then. Cold storage, or offline storage refers to cryptocurrency stored offline in physical wallets, hard drive and even mobile phones. This is great, because you alone are responsible for the ... read more

  • Bitcoin To Rally Past $6,000? Crypto Analysts Weigh In
    Bitcoin Poised To See Another 10% Jump Crypto Rand, a popular trader that recently had a bit of a run-in with XRP’s fanatics, recently remarked that Bitcoin (BTC) is showing clear signs that a move higher is on the horizon. Rand’s analysis was simple but sound. Per the chart (seen below), as BTC has stagnated over the past week or so, it has entered a “bullish pennant” pattern, marked by a tightening range and higher lows. If the pennant plays out as technical analysis bibles expect, Bitcoin will soon see a massive breakout higher, potentially “over the $6,000 region” as Rand explains. This is notable, as the analyst somewhat called BTC’s previous breakout past $4,200 earlier this year.

    The cryptocurrency market has managed to establish a stronghold in some countries like the United States and China. However, information pertaining to the market differs between the two countries, partly due to the language barrier. Joyce Yang, the Founder of Global Coin Research, spoke about how Weibo, the Chinese version of Twitter, differed from American Twitter in terms of information about cryptocurrencies, on Anthony Pompliano’s podcast ‘Off the Chain’. Yang took the example of Tron, stating that their marketing techniques contained different messages for their Chinese counterparts when compared to the ones in the US. According to her, this is not just in online media. In fact, even the content that CEOs like Changpeng Zhao of Binance provide to the media of the two nations differ significantly, she said. Interviewers in China ask more direct questions to CEOs and the reporters have more access to them compared to the US, said Joyce, who is well-versed in Mandarin and translates interviews. This is when Yang discovered that some pieces of information provided by crypto-personalities were never made available in English interviews or to crypto-followers in the West. This gap in terms of information also exists online. Yang explained that Asian crypto-followers ... read more

  • Crypto Classes, What’s It All About?
    Cryptocurrency might be cashless, but if one thing has become clear over the past few years, it’s that cryptocurrency certainly isn’t class-less. Interestingly, when Bitcoin was created it was supposed to be a totally democratic system, one that allowed anybody, no matter what their status, to have access to a fair currency no moderated and managed by the banks. The benefits of this are totally endless, but ultimately this design is supposed to give power back to the people, taking the power from the elite, putting it into the hands of the poor - a marxist style fantasy. However, when we observe the cryptosphere today, it’s clear that this design has had quite the opposite effect, if anything, Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies have only given power back to the elite, reinforcing the class hierarchy that currently allows banks and governments to get away with so much. Cryptocurrency is a form of money. Sadly, money doesn’t go on trees and therefore access to money is vital, though sadly it is often hindered by our own social classifications. In order to have access to cryptocurrency, you already need a base level of wealthiness. You need to have a computer or ... read more

Bitcoin slide likely to find solace at $5,260 – $5,280 support congestion and lead to a correction past $5,300. The short-term outlook for Bitcoin has a bearish bias. The dwindling bullish momentum displayed on Monday follows the formation of two bearish signals.

As it has been discussed before, this pattern indicates a bearish reversal from a bullish momentum like the one seen on the chart below.

    Bitcoin (BTC) has started the new week trading above its 50 week EMA. The weekly chart for BTC/USD shows that the price is now also at the top of the ascending channel it has been trading in since December, 2018. Normally, we would expect the price to retrace anyway when it tests the top of the ascending channel being this overbought. The weekly RSI as well as the Stochastic RSI both signal a major pullback to come in the near future. The NVT indicator is also signaling a major sell-off that could at least pull the price back to the bottom of this channel if not lower. Considering that the given cycle has to be longer than the previous one, we expect the price to take a lot longer than before to complete each fractal. Expecting the price to fall straight to $1,800 from current levels would be nothing short of unreasonable. If the current cycle is going to be longer than the previous just like all other succeeding cycles have been longer than the preceding ones in the history of Bitcoin (BTC), we would expect indecisive price action to continue for a lot longer than most anticipate.

  • Crypto Bull Predicts Another Alt-Coin Rally, DASH, ENJ, REP Apr. 22
    Prominent crypto bull and co-founder of research firm Fundstrat Global, Tom Lee, has provided the market with some research on BTC vs alt-coin correlations that hints at the potential for a strong rally in alt-coins. Sharing the analysis on Twitter, Lee showed that a drop in the correlation between BTC and altcoin prices has been a pre-cursor to previous rallies that have averaged 1100%.  Since 2015, one of the “pre-conditions” for the start of alt-season is a drop in the correlation between Alts and $BTC… This is a data point to suggest alt-season could be underway. This observation is similar to what I wrote about in a previous article, where I asked: “Will Bitcoin Be Left Behind in the Next Rally?” Lee also agreed with my assessment that any rally in alts will still be positive for BTC but that alt-coins may outperform. Giving some further insight to his bullish thesis, Mr. Lee noted that there are currently 50 million active crypto wallets versus 5 billion Mastercard/Visa accounts: Given there are probably only ~50mm active wallets (vs 5 billion Visa/MasterCard accts), we think crypto still early in the adoption curve. 2015/16 saw two alt-coin rallies that ... read more

  • Bitcoin Cash [BCH] network is ‘inflated centralized garbage’, tweets Bitrefill’s John Carvalho
    John Carvalho, the CCO of Bitrefill and a Bitcoin enthusiast has never shied away from expressing his disapproval of Bitcoin hard fork coins. In his most recent Twitter attack, Carvalho said that BCH was a “counterfeit” of BTC, calling the former’s network “inflated centralized garbage”. He tweeted, “Bcashers argue against BTC scaling with a punchline of “buy more BCH!” Kinda embarrassing, but they chose a future of begging for liquidity.” The response followed a recent thread by Peter R Rizun, the Chief Scientist at Bitcoin Unlimited, who stated that the second-layer solution, Lightning Network [LN], could not solve the issue of scalability and high fees plaguing the Bitcoin network. He opined that once bigger blocks came into the picture, BCH would benefit more as the fork coin’s roadmap was far superior than that of Bitcoin [BTC]. He tweeted, “This will kick off two competing dynamics within BTC: voice and exit. Some will voice the need for a block size limit increase, while others will exit to BCH as the path of least resistance. Whether BCH flippens BTC at this point will depend on which dynamic is stronger.” The Chief Scientist added that BCH had more positive aspects and that the “uncertainty” ... read more

  • Five major cryptocurrencies with a YTD return of over 200%—BNB, BAT, ENJ, RVN, CRO
    With the cryptocurrency market now increasingly in the green, it seems that every coin in the market is a winner. There seem to be a few outliers when it comes to year-to-date gains. Read on for five major cryptocurrencies that have seen their prices surge more than 200 percent since the beginning of the year. April Brings Stability to Incredible Price Growth of Five Major Coins While 2018 has been by far the worst year the cryptocurrency has ever seen, it seems that 2019 is bringing back the glory days of the market. The new year pushed the entire market in the green, adding value to cryptocurrencies few expected to perform. There have, of course, been certain small-cap coins which rose over 100,000 percent, but they weren’t the biggest surprises of the year. Those typically had suspect volume to market-cap ratios hinting at low liquidity or, worse yet, market manipulation. Out of the top 100 coins by market capitalization, the five that stood out are Binance Coin (BNB), Brave’s Basic Attention Token (BAT), Enjin Coin (ENJ), Ravencoin (RVN), and the Crypto.com Chain Token (CRO). The five experienced a year-to-date growth of over 200 percent, with Enjin being the highest-growing project ... read more

Both what could perhaps be considered as evidence that the exchange may be experimenting with the introduction of Bitcoin trading showed up today, Aprill 22.

  • Now You Can Shop On Amazon and Pay With Bitcoins, Thanks To A Browser Extension
    We have already explained to you whether Bitcoin can be used to pay on Amazon and now with a new innovative spin on the Lightning Network, users can definitively pay via Bitcoin on Amazon. Soon, such a facility will become available for most users. This new facility is the result of an initiative taken by Moon, a crypto payment processing company. Moon recently announced that any user who is registered with a Lightning wallet can make use of the payment processor’s newest browser extension to pay this way. Using the extension as an intermediary, buyers on Amazon can purchase products and services against Bitcoin (BTC) payments. This new innovation does not necessarily mean that Amazon itself will start accepting Bitcoins in exchange for the goods and services sold. Even so, the addition of this new intermediary in the form of a browser extension can be a great help to crypto users who regularly use Amazon as the e-commerce site of their choice. This will enable them to have a great deal of convenience while shopping online. Ken Kruger, who is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Moon, spoke to a crypto media outlet about this new development and explained how ... read more

  • Shop on Amazon and Buy Dominos’ Pizza Through Bitcoin Becomes a Reality
    An interesting passive application of Bitcoin payment on the Lightning Network has been enabled by crypto-payment start-up, Moon. Payments can be made on Amazon using the crypto application. Reportedly, the launch is expected to occur on Wednesday 24th April 2019 on the chrome web browser. Nevertheless, the integration has been enabled through a browser extension and Amazon gets paid in FIAT only. Hence, Amazon has not started accepting cryptocurrency payment directly. Moreover, Moon’s CEO, Ken Kruger said that the integration has been made possible through VISA and Mastercard partnership where they will earn part of the transaction fees equivalent to once paid via plastic cards. Moon’s CEO also noted that, “There’s a lot of opportunities to help solve some of those usability problems and getting people onto the lightning network, increasing adoption in that way,” Kruger said. “We’re going to engage with other folks in the lightning community to see what people are doing, what they’re working on and if there are any significant gaps. We’d love to step in and help whenever possible.” Proposed Retailers which will Accept payments through Moon Extension Moon browser is currently available on chrome, brave browser, and Opera.
