What Does Facebook’s LIBRA New Crytocurrency Really Offer? / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Rodney_Johnson

The dark days of 2009 now seem like forever ago.

We didn’t know which banks would survive. The Fed made all banks take bailout money so that citizens wouldn’t know which ones were in trouble and then drain them of deposits. The Fed made bank stocks ineligible for shorting so that investors wouldn’t drive their market caps to zero.

We worried that fiat currencies, those printed by governments and backed by nothing, would go to zero.

Facebook Win-Win with Libra… and The Third Market Wave / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Harry_Dent

If you don’t know by now that Facebook released its libra whitepaper on Tuesday, you’re living under a rock. What you may not know is that bitcoin shot up on the news. That’s because libra gives credibility to the cryptocurrency market, much like AOL did when it first brought email and the internet to the masses.

But that doesn’t mean it’s going to be all sunshine and flowers from here on out. Just like AOL, Facebook faces a storm of lash backs and push backs from across the board. Regulators. Governments. Central banks. Cryptocurrency players. Citizens concerned with Facebook’s growing involvement in every aspect of our lives.

Facebook's Libra Crypto currency vs Bitcoin: Five Key Differences / Companies / BlockChain

By: Dan_Amerman

Facebook has just released the first description of its planned new cryptocurrency, the Libra, that has been the subject of much discussion and speculation. One of the points that Facebook is stressing, however, is that despite using the Libra for transactions on Facebook, the Libra will not belong to Facebook but to the Libra Association.

The Libra Association has many other participants, with some of the bigger names including Mastercard, Visa, PayPal, Ebay and Uber. They have released a white paper which describes their intentions for the rollout of Libra in the first half of 2020.

Many people have been comparing the new cryptocurrency with Bitcoin, and thinking that the Libra will have a lot in common with Bitcoin. As explored in this analysis, the Libra will be quite different from Bitcoin in at least five major ways, and will indeed be close to the direct opposite of Bitcoin in some of the areas that matter most for many cryptocurrency investors.

Deep State & Financial Powers Worry about Alternative Currencies / Stock-Markets / BlockChain

By: Axel_Merk

Welcome to this week’s Market Wrap Podcast, I’m Mike Gleason. Later in today’s program we’ll hear from Axel Merk of Merk Investments. Axel breaks down the trade war with China and gives us some keen insights on the likely strategy being employed by President Donald Trump there, and also tells us why he sees inflationary pressures returning in the economy and the affects it will have on gold prices. Don’t miss another wonderful interview with the highly respected Axel Merk, coming up after this week’s market update.

As markets continue to gyrate on global trade and tariff threats, precious metals are struggling to capture investor interest.

Lately, the big push in alternative assets has been in Bitcoin. The cryptocurrency has doubled in price over the past two months, though it remains well below its old high.

Gold was the sole metal to show strength amidst the recent selloff in stocks. However, its momentum petered out mid week and turned lower on Thursday. As of this Friday recording, gold prices are down 0.8% for the week to trade at $1,277 an ounce.

As cryptocurrency wallets become more popular, will cryptocurrencies replace traditional payments? / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Umer_Mahmood

Across the globe, the number of people who hold cryptocurrency wallets is increasing exponentially. In fact, so far, around 36 million crypto wallets have been created, many for free using a simple download process. Of course, as increasing numbers of people look to buy BCH and other cryptocurrencies, the number of wallets is bound to rise. However, this rise has been very fast. Since early 2016 the number has gone from fewer than 6.7 million to 34.6 million, rising steadily during that time with no real peaks or troughs. Simultaneously, of course, the number of cryptocurrencies available has also increased. In fact, it’s thought that there were around 1,658 cryptocurrencies in existence in 2018, and new ones are being created all the time.

We talked to them about everything from usability to litecoin price, to see what conclusions we could draw.

Bitcoins And Bolivars: Two Hot Potatoes / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Steve_H_Hanke

It was just a little more than a decade ago when “Satoshi Nakamoto” ushered in what has become the era of private cryptocurrencies. Nakamoto’s vision was clearly laid out in a whitepaper: “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Cash System.”

Nakamoto’s bitcoin money machine—or as Larry White refers to it: a private “algorithmic central bank”—was going to wipe out the inflation risk and the accompanying loss of purchasing power that plague fiat monies issued by government-controlled central banks. Alas, bitcoin’s source code that predetermines its supply is set on a fixed-quantity path that is unresponsive to changes in demand. In consequence, bitcoin inhabits a demand-supply space in which supply is almost perfectly inelastic. So, to reach a demand-supply equilibrium, all the adjustment falls on the back of bitcoin’s price (read: purchasing power). As a result, bitcoin’s price is inherently volatile and unstable. Indeed, small changes in demand in the face of an inelastic supply create a price volatility storm. Furthermore, unless more demand can be attracted to bitcoin, there is no reason why its price should trend upwards, as many have been led to believe. If speculation wanes, bitcoin’s price could trend downwards. Indeed, bitcoin’s design guarantees volatility, which inhibits its widespread use. In short, it is very risky to hold bitcoins or accept them for deferred payments.

The Alternative Solution to Bitcoin! / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Submissions

Dear Reader,

eBook - The Alternative Solution to Bitcoin!

Oh dear, it’s not looking good for the Bitcoin crowd. After the savage 66% correction from the $19,891 highs of December 2017 to the February low at $6,651, they were hoping the damage was done.

They’d expected the buyers to rush in and hoover up Bitcoins and any other cryptos at knockdown prices... and send the price screaming higher.

How Will Ethereum Scale? / Currencies / BlockChain

By: David_Milsont

Like most public blockchain technologies, Ethereum works to support as many users as possible. The only problem, nowadays, is that the limits of the platform are still being explored. As there is a hardcoded limit on per block computation, the Ethereum blockchain supports around 15 transactions in one second. Developers and academics continue to discuss how blockchain and ethereum systems are being scaled. While Ethereum developers can highlight how this flexible platform differs from bitcoin, there is no consensus yet regarding scalability.

Where to Trade Cryptocurrencies? / Currencies / BlockChain

By: David_Milsont

Cryptocurrency stories find themselves headlining the global news on a regular basis. This news usually consists of general crypto news, whether (and when) Bitcoin will be accepted as fiat money, the release of new coins, and the up and down Bitcoin price movements.

Kim Dotcom, a maverick German-Finish Internet entrepreneur, echoed this sentiment in the following quotation: “Bitcoin is a very exciting development, it might lead to a world currency. I think over the next decade it will grow to become one of the most important ways to pay for things and transfer assets.”
