  Blockchain heading for the moon
Posted by: Carsten - 2019-12-10, 05:42 PM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (2)

This is an interesting point of view:

"Using blockchain technology, we can allow space companies to go public and bring much-needed liquidity to the industry.
I believe that it is space as an asset class that will reignite the spark and connection between global investors and companies. It will lead other industries by example and revamp the trust and excitement of going public for many enterprises.
It will allow us to go back to the moon and explore beyond."

Now the banks are starting to take crypto seriously. 

"By 2030, the demand for alternative currencies will rise, with digital currencies eventually replacing cash, according to recent research from Deutsche Bank."

Question Key Indicator Shows Ripple (XRP) Price Could be on the Verge of a Rally
Posted by: Carsten - 2019-12-05, 08:53 AM - Forum: Bitcoin and Altcoin - No Replies

XRP should be above $500 now but is down in $0.21. I no longer trust predictions like these done based on chats. What do you think about the current and future xrp price?

  Crypto prices are crashing again...
Posted by: Carsten - 2019-12-01, 01:20 PM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (4)

Why is the crypto market going down again? 

Remember one of the prediction said that Ripple (xrp) would go to $587 by the end of this year.... it's in $0.22 today so it's not going to happen. 

If there is an increasing demand for crypto we should see the prices going up, so can I conclude that the masses has lost the interest for crypto?

  ‘Crypto is Unstoppable’ — Bitcoin Will Hit $100K, Says Cardano Founder
Posted by: Carsten - 2019-11-24, 10:27 AM - Forum: Bitcoin and Altcoin - Replies (13)

These two articles points in different directions. I think that Charles Hoskinson is right!

"Crypto is Unstoppable — Bitcoin Will Hit $100K, Says Cardano Founder

Ethereum (ETH) co-founder turned Cardano (ADA) creator Charles Hoskinson said that he expects Bitcoin (BTC) to be back over $10,000 and reach $100,000 in the future.
In a tweet published on Nov. 22, Hoskinson urged the cryptocurrency community that Bitcoin is more than speculation, putting the blame on the latest drop in price on news media “FUD” — or fear, uncertainty and doubt — and market manipulation. 
A global movement
Because there’s more to Bitcoin than just price movements, he expects the world’s biggest cryptocurrency to see more gains in the future. He said:

Quote:
“Bitcoin's price is going down? Remember everyone, after the FUD, news trading and manipulation clears out, we still have a global movement that's going to change the world. We will see 10k btc again and welcome 100k. Crypto is unstoppable. Crypto is the future.”

Bitcoin’s recent price action

As Cointelegraph reported, Bitcoin and altcoins have seen a notable price decrease yesterday. More precisely, Bitcoin briefly dipped below $7,000 before settling slightly higher.
Still, as Cointelegraph’s market analysis pointed out, Bitcoin dominance is up for the week at 69%, meaning that BTC has once again outperformed other cryptocurrencies during the despite its decline this week.
Shortly after the price drop, Bitcoin futures daily volumes on digital asset platform Bakkt have hit a new all-time high, showing an increased interest in capitalizing on the renewed volatility.
In October, Hoskinson also expressed the idea that if Bitcoin fails, the entire cryptocurrency industry could fail."



Then there is this one:

"Bitcoin Isn’t Down Because of China, It’s Down Because You Don’t Need It


Crypto markets are not reeling this week because China is “cracking down on Blockchain.” Tokens have been getting slammed since the summer because most of them are unnecessary, and because the need for coins that may offer some utility is not as imminent as buyers thought it would be. This is most obvious with King Crypto, bitcoin, whose purported use-case as a store of value is not looking very compelling.



The risk-reward in bitcoin has always been an extreme one, which is why its biggest proponents/salespeople assigned astronomic price targets to it. Widespread adoption is an extremely low-probability event with an enormous payoff if the stars align. And let’s be clear: the things that need to happen for the world to turn to bitcoin – complete central bank impotence, widespread currency debasement, falling equity markets and the abandonment of traditional gold – means betting on bitcoin is essentially betting against the house. Hence the “short bankers, long bitcoin” meme. To say bitcoin will offer a 100x return yet also say it’s a highly probabilistic event is inherently contradictory and hugely dishonest.



The market is now realizing this. As the global economic slowdown of the last nine months shows signs of stabilization and the Federal Reserve sees no need for more interest-rate cuts, the case for bitcoin is taking body blows. None of the stories about adoption are turning out, big tech giants from Facebook to Google are doing everything possible to dominate electronic pay and finance, and projects designed to make bitcoin a means of exchange are either slow, fruitless, or both.



In short, the house does not look like it’s in a losing position just yet. And so bitcoin is getting killed. Sure, the U.S. and China could have a major fallout, get into a currency war, and Chinese citizens could rush to crypto as a way to get money out of the system. That’s why bitcoin will never be worthless, and why every investor should watch its price action, but that scenario is looking way, way further away from reality than the cryptoknights had so many believe.



Bitcoin’s violent moves are a factor of the speculative nature described above. Because its probability of success is low, it is closer to a roulette wheel than any traditional asset class. Average people were lured into the bitcoin sales pitch in 2017 when the economy was tearing hot, cash flow was heavy, stocks were churning out huge gains, and people could afford to take a gamble. Why not roll the dice?


Now those buyers are losing faith in their chances of winning, and are using this year’s rally to get out. As the fundamental reason for owning bitcoin as a store of value also loses luster amid a stabilizing economic situation, the true believers may start bailing out too. If it continues, it should be a warning sign to more traditional investors who made a similar bet in gold, and maybe even those who ran to Treasury bonds as a hedge against chaos, too."

  SingularityNET Announces Its New PayPal Integration
Posted by: Carsten - 2019-11-16, 01:15 PM - Forum: General discussion - Replies (1)

Maybe this could be of interest!

"The bridge between crypto and fiat is getting stronger.
Speaking on stage at BlockShow Asia 2019, Chief Scientist and CEO of decentralized AI marketplace SingularityNET Ben Goertzel announced new support for conventional PayPal transactions to support the purchase of the platform’s AGI tokens.
“We’re excited about this. It opens the door for new ways to promote and grow the network,” Goertzel said.
This move grants SingularityNET easy access to PayPal’s 286 million users. Earlier iterations of this marketplace required customers to pay for AI services offered by AI agents in the network using the AGI utility token. But this conventional PayPal integration means users don’t necessarily need any experience with cryptocurrency to use the platform.
The technology on the backend converts fiat PayPal transactions directly into AGI utility tokens. Those tokens drive the AI agents that provide services on SingularityNET. It happens invisibly, the user doesn’t need to concern himself with AGI tokens at all. They simply pay for AI services from an AI agent on the marketplace with PayPal, and get the services they require.
The unification between the worlds of crypto and fiat is a standout trend at BlockShow Asia 2019. Alchemy Global Payment Solutions CEO Patrick Ngan spoke at length about his company’s product that seeks to do the same thing."
