Posted by: Carsten - 2018-09-18, 03:01 PM - Forum: Rimbit Talk - Replies (13)

By pure random search. Just looking for a hotel in Thailand to see the prices compared to prices in Europe for a trip later this year with family.

The question is if this is run by Lamrich, CyperHippie our Mark Rune Karlsson???

"This healing retreat with Mark Karlsson will allow you to surrender to your authentic self. Karlsson has been running retreats for over 20 years and has a great amount of experience in the areas of personal and spiritual development."

  Lisk price predictions 2018 #lsk
Posted by: Carsten - 2018-09-17, 01:04 PM - Forum: Bitcoin and Altcoin - Replies (4)

Lisk has regained some of the lost value and is approaching $5.  This article is quite interesting:

"The future looks quite bright for the cryptocurrency – USD / Lisk price analysis – LSK / Lisk Coin Price Toda

Lisk price predictions 2018: Lisk is a platform which allows you to create and deploy applications based on the blockchain. You will be able to easily use the API of the platform in order to build the applications. This will directly provide you with useful blockchain-based infrastructure in order to develop and execute your applications.

Most of the investors, however, are interested in the price of Lisk cryptocurrency. The usability of the platform and the price of the token, go hand-in-hand. As the usability of the platform increases, the price of the token will also increase. This is the reason why the future looks quite bright for this particular cryptocurrency. We will go into some of the price predictions of the same cryptocurrency.

Lisk price predictions 2018:


The one-year forecast for this cryptocurrency is around $ 45. Within a five-year timeframe, it is expected to rise to $ 106. This ensures that you will be able to get a significant amount of return within a five-year period.

The main reason for the astronomical rise in the prize of this cryptocurrency is the blockchain on which it operates. It makes it much easier for the developers to use the blockchain to deploy their applications. This ensures that in most of the cases, the developers are able to just code and deploy an application without a lot of steps in between. Owing to the ease of use of the blockchain, the platform is slated to garner more and more users in the near future. This will also help the platform increase the value of the token which reduces as well. This is the reason why the cryptocurrency will also increase in value pretty soon.

As a cryptocurrency token, you need to keep in mind that it is more stable as compared to some of the other volatile cryptocurrencies. This will ensure that if you’re looking for stability, it will indeed become possible for you to gain stability with the help of this cryptocurrency.


Thus, whenever you’re looking to invest in a cryptocurrency which can provide you with a reasonable amount of stability along with returns over a one-year period and also over a five-year period, Lisk is the one in which you should think about investing. Once you are able to invest in it, you will not only be able to diversify your portfolio will make good returns as well."

  ICOS DUMPED $30M ETH LAST WEEK
Posted by: Carsten - 2018-09-12, 09:40 AM - Forum: Bitcoin and Altcoin - Replies (8)

Seems that ICO are panicking and selling out of their Ethereums. I still believe that it's time to buy and support this better alternative to Bitcoin......and there is DogeCoin.  Undecided

"ETHER TANKS
For Ether meanwhile, price woes continue. Having slid below $200 to see lows not witnessed since July 2017, pressure on the largest altcoin is being compounded by a rapid increase in selling from ICO projects which accrued huge amounts of it over the past year.
This week alone, ICOs have spent over $30 million in ETH, Rooke notes, marking a six-month high.
“These ICOs still have over $600,000,000 worth of treasury ETH in their accounts (3,000,000+ ETH),” he added."

  Ethereum co-creator Steven Nerayoff cryptocurrency’s value could triple this year
Posted by: Carsten - 2018-09-09, 11:04 AM - Forum: Bitcoin and Altcoin - Replies (1)

The recent fall of all coins it disturbing, but also an opportunity to buy cheap. Read this prediction from Ethereums co-creator Steven Nerayoff about Ethereum that I think is correct. There are other good stuff in the article linked below.

I want to highlight this.

"In the current year that is 2018, it is predicted that Ethereum would reach around $ 2500. By the end of next year that is 2019, it is expected that Ethereum would be somewhere around $ 14,000. Similarly, by the end of the year 2020, it is assumed that Ethereum would be around $ 31,000."

"Bitcoin and Ethereum are here to stay.

Most people who are enthusiastic about cryptocurrency appear to agree that Bitcoin and its newer rival Ethereum have staying power, though they may be more bullish on one versus the other. “In terms of 5 to 10 years, Bitcoin and Ether will be around I bet,” Balaji Srinivasan told the room of more than 70 people"

  Gamedex
Posted by: Hugues - 2018-09-08, 11:19 AM - Forum: Bitcoin and Altcoin - Replies (12)

This is one of the ICOs where Invictus invested in.

WHAT IS GAMEDEX?
Gamedex is a platform for digital collectible cards and the games they can be used in. Unlike traditional collectibles (for
example, baseball or Pokemon cards), these digital assets can be transferred to anyone on the planet instantly with their
authenticity proven. They cannot be counterfeited or reprinted, and they can be used in online games. The platform is
similar to Steam but for digital collectible card games whereby individuals are able to create, play and engage in a like-
minded community environment.
According to Gamedex, they are “starting with the digital collectible cards market for the same reason Amazon started
as a bookstore and Wordpress started as a blogging platform. Just as Amazon is now ‘The Everything Store’ and
Wordpress now powers 30% of all websites, Gamedex will soon be the dominant platform for all non-cryptocurrency
digital assets.”
Gamedex will be your digital wallet, exchange, and game store all in one, and will run on both desktops and
smartphones. Their in-house digital collectible exchange, pairs all issued assets against GDX tokens or Eth. Collectors
can buy any asset they wish, provided someone is willing to sell it.
By conducting market research, Gamedex found brick-and-mortars still host a strong market amongst the gaming
community, and therefore allow digital cards to be sold in physical stores using QR codes. While Gamedex’s provisionally
confirmed partner stores will allow for credit-card payments, in-store cash packs will allow for adoption throughout the
developing world and among teens and others who may not have access to credit cards.
“One of the biggest, longest-standing critiques of digital assets and collectibles is that the
y simply don’t have any “real
world” value. That’s all changing with the emergence of crypto collectibles on the blockchain. Since items can now be
traced, authenticated, and verified as truly unique, real-world value is now becoming imbued into many digital collectibles
and assets.”
With the gaming and esports industry expanding rapidly, digital collectibles are unlikely to fade in popularity. Gamedex is
the next logical step in the evolution of the collectibles market from physical trading to collectibles 2.0.




THE PROBLEM GAMEDEX AIMS TO SOLVE
For thousands of years, an innate drive has caused people to collect items. Whether it be as a hobby, for trading
or personal use, items with inherent rarity have caught our attention. With the advent of the digital age, previously
inconceivable ways of collecting items from virtual pets to baseball cards, are becoming a reality.
Crypto-collectibles are just one part of a broader trend which is seeing physical assets moving to a digital
representation. Blockchain offers us the best solution to ensure the authenticity and provenance of these assets, only
made possible by its underlying technology.
In a market that is currently north of USD 50 billion, collectibles in the gaming industry are predominantly still physical
assets which can be easily lost, stolen or damaged. Regarding trust and ownership, these collectibles can easily
be counterfeited and owners cannot simply verify their authenticity. In the digital collectible sector, the markets are
controlled by centralized entities who often exercise control to the detriment of participants (e.g.: Second Life, WoW).
Without a system to check for total item quantity, issuers can generate an increasing supply of the same item freely,
adversely affecting the owner’s value.
Given the inherent problems faced in the physical and centralized digital collectible space, Gamedex aims to provide
a solution by allowing full transparency and security to collectible card enthusiasts in the digital space. Blockchain
revolutionizes collectibles by making counterfeits impossible, transfers instant and limited edition cards provably rare.

  ChromaWay
Posted by: Hugues - 2018-09-08, 08:03 AM - Forum: Bitcoin and Altcoin - Replies (7)

ChromaWay
Chromaway is a Swedish company that has been developing their own private blockchain since as early as 2014. In this time they have launched SofiWay, a platform that will lead the way for the development of digital currency E-Krona. They are also developing PostChain. ‘The First Consortium Database’ that will appeal to SQL developers and have collaborated with the Swedish national bank to create ‘The University Identity Hub’. To their credit, Chromaway have successfully established each of these projects without the need for an ICO thus far.
Chromaway CTO Alex Mizrahi over the last 4 years has also been setting his sites on building Chromapolis, a blockchain platform focusing on dApp devlopment that will tackle the scalability issues and high transaction fees plaguing existing protocols active in the market. Although not directly linked with previous blockchain projects we expect aspects of their previous developments to be weaved into the companies’ vision and roadmap.
Tipped for success by many cytptocurrency influencers, the Chromapolis ICO by Chromaway has an incredible amount of hype surrounding it, especially considering whitepaper details have been kept secret up until this point.  The small team from Sweden is incredibly experienced with blockchain development and have a great track record. With these points in mind, Chromaway is definitely one to keep a close eye on moving into Autumn 2018. - This one could be big.

  The survivors?
Posted by: Hugues - 2018-09-06, 09:43 PM - Forum: Bitcoin and Altcoin - Replies (23)

A while ago I posted that lots of coins and tokens (90%) would disapear.
Well, you should have a look at this.
It is written by a Marius Kramer. I have read many articles from this guy and I believe he has to tell things that make sense.
No reason to panic.

Let’s have a look at the top 10, where 7 out of them will most likely fail. Why? Because they have really bad technology and are only there, because they were one of the first coins that existed.


  1. Bitcoin

  2. Ethereum

  3. Ripple

  4. Bitcoin Cash

  5. EOS

  6. Litecoin

  7. Cardano

  8. Stellar

  9. IOTA

  10. Tron
Let’s have a look at Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin first.
They all have

  1. Very slow transactions that sometimes even take hours. This is unusable as a digital currency.

  2. Low scalability of only 7 transactions per second (TPS). VISA currently does 10,000 transactions per second on a normal day and can handle 60,000 at peak. This is the minimum number of TPS that a digital currency should be able to handle. Maybe this will be improved with the lightning network, but this isn’t so sure. Bitcoin Cash is a bit better here with a couple of hundred TPS.

  3. Fees, which make it unusable for micro-transactions.

  4. They are very wasteful, because Bitcoin uses as much energy as the country Ireland.

  5. Extremely centralized by 2 mining pools being able to launch a double spend attack with a 90%+ change of success. The only factor currently still protecting Bitcoin is a social one. This is zero security in computer security. 

    In order to attack Bitcoin, it only needs one malicious intern with some skill to take over Bitmain (since Bitmain is already in control of 51% of the hashing power https://twitter.com/cryptoble/st...) for a short amount of time and launch a double spend attack, be through social engineering, blackmail, coercion, hacking. We don't know how many times this has been attempted, probably several times already and it failed due to luck. The only variable protecting Bitcoin right now is a social one. This is zero security in computer security!!

    If that happens, this would probably also crash the market if that happens, because people will notice how vulnerable BTC is. This is only worse in Litecoin and Ethereum.
Now let’s look at EOS and Ripple.
They have high scalability, but only because they use only around 50 nodes for consensus. Ripple even picks those nodes by themselves and have thus complete control over who decides what transactions are valid. This isn’t decentralized at all. EOS lets the community select the nodes at least, but it also still only uses 21 nodes for consensus. This is not good design and very centralized.
Let’s look at Tron.
Tron has a plagiarized whitepaper, for which they even had to apologize. Furthermore, they don’t even have a product yet. Go figure.
Let’s look at the ones that aren’t that bad, Stellar and Cardano.
Stellar is similar to Ripple only that its consensus algorithm is that centralized. Cardano is not a bad platform actually, however, there are platforms that do everything that Cardano does but better.
Let’s look at the 3 platforms that are much better than all of the coins in the top 10. Instead of hours long transactions, fees, high centralization, low scalability and very high energy usage, they have

  1. Instant transactions

  2. Zero fees

  3. Near infinite scalability and decentralization through side-chain/off-chain/horizontal scaling

  4. 1 millionth the energy usage of Bitcoin
Those 3 are IOTA, Skycoin and Elastos and they will probably compete for spot #1. Here a little summary about them

  1. Iota
    Beyond the 4 above mentioned characteristics, Iota offers decentralized storage, Oracles and outsourced cloud computing.

    While Iota is already worth $5B, they are a juggernaut and they will most likely make Bitcoin a run for the money soon. There is a lot of criticism towards Iota because it currently uses a coordinator to verify transaction before there are more nodes on the network, at which point it can be removed.

  2. Skycoin
    Skycoin offers decentralized storage, smart contracts and complete privacy. Finally, it offers the completely decentralized internet, Skywire, which might be bigger than all cryptocurrencies combined. They just launched the testnet for Skywire a week ago.

  3. Elastos
    Is the most comprehensive, efficient and most customizable dapps operating system and runtime environment.
Then you have the smaller, specialized coins that are worth investing in.

  1. Enjin
    ENJ is the best gaming coin At a $100M market cap, ENJ is a gaming coin that already has a network of 20 million players and is being integrated in the game Minecraft

  2. Elixir
    Elixir is a lending platform at only a $15M market cap. Elix has such a small market cap, because they have not done an Ico, though, they are on par with Salt at a $300M market cap in terms of development progress and further than Ethlend, who are sitting at a $80M market cap.

  3. VeChain 
    VeChain is a BaaS (Blockchain-as-a-service) and Dapps platform with outstandingly strong partnerships

  4. BNB
    BNB is the fee token of Binance it’s one of the strongest coins of 2018 already and with Binance’s success will probably make it into the top 10as well
So, there you have 7 excellent coins that are much better than the current coins within the top 10 and that will probably also replace them this year. Happy investing. Smile
