  A universal wallet address: Unstoppable Domains
Posted by: Hugues - 2020-01-15, 10:46 PM - Forum: Bitcoin and Altcoin - Replies (16)

Guys this is great. This is what I was waiting for.

Soon cryptocurrency users will no longer have to deal with complicated wallet addresses, because .crypto domains will replace these. Instead of sending a bitcoin to 34CpoxRwJzEzBg7D6DtXTbkUVvzPXyTbKQ, people will be able to send it to ‘yourname.crypto’. Software company Unstoppable Domains announced this on Friday.
Read the full story here

I subscribed to get me a domain. just have to find a good name.
If you intend to do so (I would recommend it) use my link below:

  Crypto 24h volume is exploding
Posted by: Carsten - 2020-01-15, 10:21 PM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (5)

If you look at the 24 h volume for the major coins like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple then they have exploded. Litecoin alone is now having a trading volume of $5,161,471,006 for the last 24 h. That's huge. Don't underestimate Litecoin since a lot of things is happening with them and the for 8 years strait the blockchain have had ZERO downtime. It's fast, it's cheap and and it's stable. Ripple is the same but more focused on banks. A lot of companies now want's to integrate Litecoin to their business so keep an eye out for them.

Ethereum 24h $15,280,767,160
Bitcoin 24 h $40,405,678,378

It's a lot and indicates a bull run is just around the corner.  Smile

  Bitcoin and Ethereum Trading Volumes More than Doubled in a Week Says Report
Posted by: Carsten - 2020-01-13, 09:58 AM - Forum: Bitcoin and Altcoin - Replies (4)

The crises in Iran could be the boost to the explosion in trading volume. Not only for Bitcoin but also Ethereum and Litecoin has seen higher volumes.

The article only focus on Bitcoin

"A report published on Jan. 9 by cryptocurrency market research firm Arcane Research, Bitcoin (BTC) trading volumes more than doubled in a week.
Per the report, the 7-day average daily trading volume has seen a 126% increase in a week at the start of 2020, with almost $1.5 billion traded just on Jan. 8. The report reads:

Quote:
“The market recovered sharply from the disappointing $192 million that were traded on Jan. 1.”

Crypto market “certainly getting more bullish”
The researchers also note that the Crypto Fear & Greed Index shown on alternative software website Alternative.me has been steadily climbing since mid-December and on Jan. 6 it touched neutral levels for the first time since October. 
The report also points out that Bitcoin’s volatility is increasing alongside its price and is currently climbing the 3% level. The document reads:

Quote:
“Although falling back to fear in the last couple of days, the market is certainly getting more bullish.”


The index’s website explains that when it reaches extreme fear it means that investors are too worried which presents a buying opportunity, while when the tool shows extreme greed the market is probably due for a correction. The indicator derives its reading from volatility, market momentum and volume, social media, surveys, Bitcoin crypto market dominance and Google trends."

Is Bitcoin becoming a safe haven?


Interestingly, the researchers also suggest that the tensions between Iran and the United States brought Bitcoin’s correlation with gold to levels not seen since August 2016. While the authors of the report admit that “it is way too early to draw any firm conclusion,” they also point out that major events in the new conflict caused a positive reaction by both gold’s and Bitcoin’s price. The paper reads:

Quote:
“The ‘safe haven’ narrative for Bitcoin is starting to become true. However, this short-term price action could also just be spurious correlation and a long-term evaluation must be taken into consideration.”

As Cointelegraph explained in a recent analysis, many believe that Bitcoin is proving useful to the Iranian population as the conflict continues.

Rise in Activity

Lastly, the report also notes that the activity on Bitcoin’s blockchain also showed a renaissance, with the number of transactions climbing 5% in a week as the transaction value grew by one-fourth over the same period of time. Also miner fees increased by over 40% and the number of active addresses increased by about 7.63%.

Bitcoin’s outlook is becoming increasingly bullish as recent reports become ever more positive for the cryptocurrency. Bitcoin can deliver 100% returns to investors in 2020 and may rise significantly in the five months until May’s block reward halving, according to a recent report.


Interest in the asset is seemingly rising and as Cointelegraph recently reported, the United States’ largest bank believes interest will be high in CME Group’s new Bitcoin options.

  Mental Health
Posted by: BobBobert - 2020-01-07, 06:07 PM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (14)

In November and December, my busiest months, I got involved with a local group of men who promote good mental health amongst men.  To raise some money and awareness we clubbed together and did a virtual e-cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats (this is called LEJOG and it is the two furthest points apart in the UK).  It was a tough cycle as we are all working men with families but we got there and raised over £2000 as well as making the local news.

Just after we finished the cycle, I found out that one of my friends had jumped/fallen to their death. He had suffered from poor mental health for a long time.  We met at university on our first day and became good friends.  Even though our careers took us to differing parts of the UK, we kept in touch.  He was only 40 years old.

Men can cry, we can ask for help. We should not "man up" and pretend all is ok when it is not.  

January is a bad time for a man to be down, what with the cold darkness and there are too many men at risk.  If you know someone, check up on them, see if you can include them in something.

I wish you all, good mental health for 2020 and that you and your men friends support one another.

  Senior Software Developer at Ripple Quits After 6.5 Years to Focus on Coil
Posted by: Carsten - 2020-01-04, 12:41 PM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (6)

This is also interesting an hopefully something that can break the monopoly of Google and Facebook ads.

"Evan Schwartz, senior software developer at major crypto firm Ripple announced that he is leaving the cryptocurrency company after six and a half years.
On Jan 2, the software engineer took to Twitter to announce that after working 2,328 days at the blockchain giant, today will be his last. Schwartz tweeted:

Quote:
“After 2328 days, or just under 6.5 years, today is my last day at @Ripple. Thank you to everyone who helped make it such an exciting ride; I'll be cheering the team on from the outside. Keep on building the #InternetOfValue!”
Schwartz co-invented the Interledger protocol, which is an open suite of protocols for connecting ledgers of all types and a payment solution that is at the base of Ripple's vision of the internet-of-value."

Does any of you get the picture here.
It looks great but I am not sure I understand the system.
It seems to be based on Monero. Monero is king in privacy.
