soon [Music] this side the Bitcoin lightning Network capacity now exceeds 4.2 million dollars promising to be electrifying and covering for the rapidly expanding Bitcoin lightning Network is the nearest alternative for scaling the underlying at the time of press and perhaps triggered by expanding Bitcoin prices an increasing number of BTC accepting merchants the Ln network capacity is up 54% processing a massive four million two hundred fifty nine thousand one hundred forty 1.7 cents or roughly ten fifty seven BT sees as the capacity grows the number of channels follow suit an are up 18 percent to seven thousand three hundred eighty one but why is lightning Network gaining so much traction roughly a year after launch seg which laid the foundation for once we must understand that bitcoin is a network is limited by block size back in q3 and q4 2017 several solutions were proposed and in a bid to deal with a bloated network the community agreed to soft fork the network through a user activated upgrade in segregated witness seg wit it was seg wit that laid the foundation for LN as it ran a code separating transaction signature from data thereby freeing up space allowing for more transactions to fit in a block supporters estimated that segment would quadruple the nominal capacity of the network apart from implementing this space freeing code sacred also dealt with the malleability bug that would have directly impeded the activation in launching of ln a layer to an controversial layer to solution that would increase the networks throughput since the business community disagreed to activate and double block size to 2 MB contrary to New York and Hong Kong agreements the only solution that would scale the network was Lightning Network here’s why Lightning network is popular Lightning Network introduces a smart contract that runs on top of the Bitcoin network allowing i/o through this code appear can only one payment channel and connect with other peers he or she transacts with similarly each peer will have one connection to the underlying blockchain network connected peers can transact as they want execute private payments but once the channel is closed or funds in the cell and supporting wallet are exhausted everything is settled on the Bitcoin blockchain because of this arrangement payments are processed faster costs reduced in the throughput increased by several factors in fact according to the official lightning Network description the creation of private channel scales the underlined by millions to billions of transactions per second meaning it can outperform traditional financial intermediaries like visa which can process 2,000 transactions per second and other centralized network by several magnitudes add this to the efficiency and lack of intermediation costs that parties paid the network becomes this audit free secure and cheap payment processing juggernaut supporters there are weaknesses associated with the ln but the promise of making small transactions in a scalable manner is what is enticing already Jack Dorsey is a supporter and through tip-in dot Emmy users can tip users posting quality content or

its website states that crypto ratings are updated weekly with of equals excellent B equals good C equals fair D equals week and the equals very weak Martin Weiss chairman of the Weiss group and founder of Weiss crypto ratings commented despite lower prices since early 2018 a ratings model gives us hard evidence that a critical segment of the cryptocurrency industry has enjoyed remarkable growth in user transaction volume network capacity and network security he was further quoted as saying for those willing to take the risk the best time to invest could be very near BTC now on top currently ranked first based on Weiss’s overall rating as BTC Bitcoin formerly a c+ has been upgraded to be thanks to various improvements including the rollout of its lighting Network the report reads it further asserts that Bitcoin the original cryptocurrency is still the proven leader in adoption adding it’s also the best position to become a popular store of value for savers and investors reminiscent of the function of gold like gold bullion its value is not controlled by monetary authorities and it can be a safe haven in times of turmoil unlike the yellow metal it costs virtually nothing to store a transport emphasizing the diversification beyond Bitcoin is also important the report compares the price of BTC with three Weiss indices the 50 crypto index the mid-cap crypto index and the non pal crypto index the Weisse 50 crypto index includes strictly cryptocurrencies that pass minimum standards have technology and adoption based on the Weiss crypto ratings the report clarifies while a 100 dollar investment in BTC held between January 1st 2017 and March 12 this year would be worth $400 today Weiss’s 3 indices rose from one hundred to six hundred twenty two thousand

2018 and March 2019 yo saw its volume of transactions grow from fewer than 7000 per day to nearly 4.6 million that’s 14 times more volume than bitcoins and eight times more than ethereum x’ martin weiss told news dot bitcoin calm tuesday our tech adoption grades tend to be relatively sustainable over time since they include both a the long term potential of the distributed ledger technology and beat real-world long-term trends in adoption the combination of these two facets is where EOC excels helping to maintain its leadership going forward at least as far as we can see today another ranking which favors EOS is one published by China’s center for information and Industry Development CCID under the country’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology on March 22nd the center released xi update of its crypto project ranking report placing EOS top of the list this project has been the CCI DS favorite since it started being ranked in June last year Tron among top 10 the CCI D also favors Justin’s son’s Tron ranking the project second overall for two consecutive months however this ranking is solely based on the project’s basic technology applicability and creativity does not take into consideration the risk and reward of the cryptocurrency Weiss ratings places TRX among the top ten cryptocurrencies based on its overall rating Martin Weiss explained to news doc Bitcoin comm it’s rated C+ for the same reason many other coins with good tech are rated C+ weak risk reward metrics elaborating no surprise there especially considering the disappointing upside potential and big downside risks investors have experienced in recent months he further remarked the good news is that as soon as the space begins to show signs of sustainable price recovery risk reward should improve potentially leading to upgrades for Tron and other coins with good tech and adoption what do you think of Weiss ratings crypto outlook let us know in the comments section below disclaimer

Lightning Network has more active nodes than XRP little coin and euros combined bitcoins lightning Network has been one of the most instrumental scaling solutions for the cryptocurrency since its inception the second layer open protocol system was officially launched on the maynot in January 2018 however it only recently picked up popularity due to the ongoing lighting torch experiment according to recent reports the Lightning Network has more active nodes than the combined numbers of XRP litter coin and iOS data produced by long hash comm indicated that the Lightning network had 3000 884 active nodes with active channels at press time Bitcoin BTC and de faria meth were the only cryptocurrencies with a higher number of active nodes with 10,000 603 and 7580 nodes respectively the combined number of active nodes acquired by litter coin XR p and e host was approximately 3,300 an indication of the Lightning networks active utilization and rapid growth had pressed time lightning networks channels held BTC would be worth over three million dollars the equivalent to around 759 bitcoins this suggested that the Ellins channel capacity had increased by a factor of 100

nodes at press time in February 2018 the number of active nodes in operation was close to around 618 this remarkable growth marked an increase of around 500 32 percent since last year source 1 ml however a major criticism of the Lightning network is the possible centralization of a few large notes according to dire it was observed that ten of the largest ln nodes commanded over 53% of the network’s capacity at the start of 2019 the 20 largest L endnotes had 38 percent of the network’s capacity despite improvements in distribution over reliance on larger nodes was still prominent thanks

issues or divisions within the mining community have been reported although the phrase hard fork might evoke a blockchain split such as the event that produced ethereum classic in 2016 most hard folks do not actually have that outcome since Constantinople z’ features were largely uncontested the update went smoothly as – activated the new ethereum software and its features and unison low remaining rewards the main feature that constantinople introduces as a reduction of block rewards aetherium miners will now receive a payout of 2f for each block that they mine previously the reward was 3f per block although this is something of a sacrifice for miners this course of action is relatively conservative and a gained majority support from devs last August if areum’s reduced block rewards are deliberately intended to discourage mining as doing so will reduce the amount of new F that the mining community generates this will in turn reduce inflation and keep the value of existing at fairly high lower mining incentives will also help prepare for proof of stake consensus ARCA Kasper which will be introduced in ethereum 2.0 although lower in rewards will make mining less profitable this upgrade does not disincentivize – as much as it could have Constantinople actually delays a difficulty bomb that would have made mining much more system intensive and harder to profit from that bomb has now been delayed for 12 months allowing many miners to continue enjoying profits other features although constantinople x’ biggest change concerns mining rewards there are a few other features that are built into the upgrade constantinople also reduces the cost of using the ethereum virtual machine introduced as a method for interacting with the air to be created addresses and reduces gas costs for particulate transactions additionally a second theorem upgrade called st. Petersburg has been carried out alongside constantinople this update removed a feature that was discovered to contain a rien trancey bug in january in other words the main feature of st. petersburg is actually the absence of a problem market effects major upgrades can cause uncertainty among investors and some commentators believe that this upgrade could cause if areum’s market price to become more volatile Sebastian st.

McAfee steps in save the date while applauding lungs awakening to the fact that Bitcoin will be 1 million dollars McAfee wasn’t pretend to win Sunday so he ups the ante and stated a hard date for the forecast of December 31st 2020 people are waking up to the fact that Bitcoin will be $1,000 0 0 & 0 Brooklyn someday maybe five years within the decades I’m the only one giving you a hard date

lost that bet he would leave his own penis on national television one questions in the Twitter comments McKesson confirmed that this was the same event and that never lose a bet wild wildlife whatever one’s opinion of McAfee his life is nothing if not fascinating last year he declared his intention to run for the office of US president with the libertarian party’s for the second time then earlier this year he revealed that he is being pursued by the IRS for unspecified crimes and living in exile price prediction is a notoriously precarious occupation and putting one’s manhood on the line would be a step too far for almost anyone except Maithili so will we see them devouring his genitals on national television I personally hope not for many reasons chief amongst them being personal financial gain after all the prospect of a 1 million dollar dollar Bitcoin in less than two years is certainly something to get excited about more so than a man chewing his own tickle tackle I’d wager do you think McAfee will be proven correct share your thoughts below what does little coin founder Charlie Lee think we’ll drive crypto adoption after Villach beuter and stellar keynote about ethereum 2.0 news got the rare chance to sit down with Charlie Lee a corn-based director of engineering turned lytic oh and founder the crypto pioneer told us all about his thoughts on how this ecosystem is developing along with litical Owens plans for global dominance related reading exclusive Whiterun CEO expects Bitcoin crypto assets to rally in 2020 Charlie Lee’s crypto insights new few months ago you told CNBC fast money that the downturn in the crypto market has allowed you in the little Cohen foundation to properly build out your product does that still hold true today Charlie yeah so my point there is that when prices aren’t going up like crazy there are definitely fewer distractions this means that it’s a good time for people to keep their heads down and start to work on getting other products live just recently we’ve been working hard on trying to add more fungibility into the litical and protocol so what we’re looking at now is doing a minimal Wimble extension block upgrade for little coin so we’re doing a lot of research into that about how we could make such an implementation in a safe way we want more fungibility and privacy in the little cone ecosystem Newspeak how has this crypto bear market compared to ones in the past charlie well it’s been pretty similar one thing about this bear market even though it’s been over a year now is that it hasn’t been as bad for people the drop is similar percentage-wise but during the last bear market I remember it got to a point where people just didn’t think that it was going to come back people just weren’t optimistic about the price at the time now I think we haven’t gotten to that point yet and maybe we might not go there this time which will be great but I wouldn’t be surprised if there are more sell offs or if it takes a lot longer to climb out of it it could be another year or so but who knows it’s hard to predict these things new speak so you made crypto history when you purchased a stake in Wegg Bank a few months back how has that been playing out so far charlie it was actually like almost a year ago that that deal happened we have a nine point nine percent stake in the bank meaning we have some influence the bank is kin to creating crypto products so they’re kind of approaching it from a different direction of starting with a regulated bank then pivoting to give us merchant processing and stuff like that so the first step has been great next is supporting crypto companies with bank accounts then lastly you want to add crypto wallets along with storing fiat and normal accounts for crypto companies what would be cool is allowing people to store US dollars at a bank in cryptocurrencies too but eventually there will be merchants processing and other crypto solutions it’s going slowly because banks move slowly due to regulations that was to be expected but it’s going well I don’t have anything really to announce right now but I’m excited about what is to come in the future news so you guys joined hands with Venice crane from the UFC did you see values aligned between the UFC and cryptocurrencies Charlie it wasn’t quite a partnership with Ben he’s a huge proponent of cryptocurrency and he also understood little coin very well Ben understands the need for sound money he also said he supports lit a coin so members of our community actually donated to him over 100 LTC for his previous fight and he was very thankful for that and he wore a little Cohen t-shirt for a few of his interviews we also had a little coin logo on the UFC mat there which brought us a lot of exposure and drew a lot of new people into this space I think there’s an intersection between the cryptocurrency community and combat sports fans it’s a unique opportunity for us to expand the adoption of litical and through that punk’d for adult foundation to sponsor me for UFC 235 at Satoshi light at Joh and ki m77 number of quest kiss number old ceased guest pic twitter.com OV e 0b zy to za bana screen at Venice screen January 15th 2019 news what is one thing holding back crypto adoption as it stands Charlie I’ll tell you two things one thing is volatility because crypto prices are so volatile it’s hard for people to actually use it meaning adoption is Han volatility is kind of a chicken and the egg type scenario once there is adoption volatility will decrease meaning more adoption so it’s a slow process for that to work for us to overcome that the second thing that’s kind of preventing us from getting a lot of adoption is user experience of storing your own money securing your own money is hard there’s always a trade-off between security and usability so people are using exchanges to store their coins because they can’t do it themselves it’s easy but then you hear all the stories about exchanges getting hacked and that really hurts adoption so probably we just need to work on having better easier solutions that allow people to store their own money that’s the whole problem really so I think usability and user experience is really important albeit it’s something that is hard to solve thanks for watching the Ohio Bitcoin calm Bitcoin news channel today we

to spread the word about Bitcoin BTC thanks again see you with more Bitcoin headline news and analysis soon you bitcoins critical resistance and similarities to 2015 hi friends welcome to this update analysis on Bitcoin today we’re going to be looking at another comparison of the current Bitcoin market on the left to the bottom formed during the 2015 bear market on the right let’s get right to it the first thing I want to draw your attention to is the current 50 EEMA in orange looking at the chart on the left you can see that the 50 ma is showing incredible support in fact if you remember on February 24th when Bitcoin fell 9 percent in one day I posted a chart telling everyone not to freak out because Bitcoin had fallen directly to the 50 EEMA and we were still holding it now here we are a month later and we are still holding the 50 EEMA this is very special because bitcoin hasn’t held the 50 ml like this since the bull market was in full swing these little nuances in the market are indications that the tide is turning it’s time to pay very close attention because this market is beginning its metamorphosis the similarities to the 2015 bear market bottoming cycle are incredible we can see that on both charts price fell exactly to the weekly 200 ma in green also on both charts we can see that the 50 Hema was resistance and then it became supportive however this is slightly more pronounced on the current chart in addition to the similarities between the moving averages we can see that price also formed an inverted Head & Shoulders pattern on both charts below red trend lines looking at the 2015 chart on the right price broke out above the second peaks resistance red trendline and skyrocketed to the 61.8% retrace looking at today’s chart it’s clear that price could do something similar the current 61.8% retraces right around 50 to 36 however as i’ve said in many other analyses i don’t think that bitcoin will rip like that right now because i doubt it will be able to surpass the substantial resistance that is in its way which I have shown in previous analyses with that said if Bitcoin confirms above the red line on the current chart my view on that will quickly change I simply doubt that we will see such a move right now you have to understand though that is my personal opinion talking there is a difference between my opinion as an analyst and the evidence that I act on as a trader in other words I may have an opinion on the likelihood for something to happen but that is just an opinion what I actually do depends on real evidence that materializes on the charts so as analysts we often devise opinions on what the market will do based on the data but it isn’t wise to trade an opinion it is wise to trade evidence therefore I have the opinion that price will most likely continue to grind sideways this year but the second I see a conformation above the red horizontal trendline the opinion will be instantly changed by newly tradable evidence that is what being a good trader is all about it’s about not being nimble in making moves when the time is right even if that means stepping away from your previous opinions on what the market may or may not do looking at the chart on the right we can see that during the 2015 bottoming sequence price broke out above the red resistance line and exploded directly to the 61.8% retrace comparing that to today’s chart on the left we can see that such a move would catapult Bitcoin up towards the 50 to 50 range interestingly the current chart shows a few candles from mid November that formed accumulation we X off of the 61.8% retrace so there is a high probability that the 618 will act as initial resistance when Bitcoin finally makes it up there a quick glance at the chart on the right shows what is likely to happen next we will probably chop underneath that level for a while and then explode above it as Bitcoin rallies up toward the major resistance at 6,000 again I still don’t think that will happen until later this year but if we start to see price rising above the 4200 level I will be quick to pivot on that opinion it is also noteworthy that the scales between these two charts are a bit different the chart on the right took 300 days for the inverse head-and-shoulders to breakout while today’s chart is only 124 days into the pattern yet it is similar in development so perhaps we will see a breakout that happens sooner than I had originally anticipated either way until price gets above that red line we can expect the sideways grind between the low for thousands and the mid three thousands to continue I’m the master of the charts the professor the legend the king and I go by the name of magic au revoir this information is not a recommendation to buy or sell it is

ensuring the mass adoption of Bitcoin and altcoins becomes a reality is an ongoing struggle while some effort has been undertaken to make something positive happen a lot of companies have dropped cryptocurrencies support as well over the past few years the latest company to do so is twitched by the look of things their bitpay payment option has been removed in the past few days without any prior warning twitch boots Bitcoin and altcoin support a lot of people were initially pleased to see popular streaming platform twitch intergrate cryptocurrency payments by allowing users to send tips through Bitcoin and altcoins an important step toward mass adoption was taken this sentiment was later reinforced when users could actively pay for twitch channel subscriptions in Bitcoin and Bitcoin cash that functionality is made possible through big pay the world’s leading major cryptocurrency payment processor as is always the case when a company integrates support for Bitcoin and alt coins there is some concern over the popularity of this option as has been seen across other industries once the initial hype calms down Bitcoin and alt coins are used far less frequently this is one of the main reasons why multiple companies removed Bitcoin payments support in recent years it now appears twitch has done the same without letting their users and customers know this change was coming when anyone tries to subscribe to a twitch streamer they can choose from many different payment options the big pay option has been removed from this list although no one can pinpoint when this happened exactly it seems this is not a region-based chain either as twitch users from different continents have confirmed this payment option is no longer available a very unfortunate turn of events especially during these bearish times for all cryptocurrencies one possible reason why the big pay option was removed is due to a lack of overall interest although there will always be a core audience which relies on this payment method cryptocurrencies aren’t necessarily suited for subscription-based services more specifically Bitcoin and other currencies do not offer native recurring payments support which is rather annoying when dealing with subscription-based services this may be one of the reasons why the bitpay integration did not work out for twitch in the end as is to be expected when such a change is introduced without warning users in advance the community feedback is not too positive by any means a lot of reddit users are canceling all twitch subscriptions or are simply shutting down their own streams because of this unwelcome change this is a rather normal reaction although it remains to be seen if this will impact witches profitability in any significant way it seems unlikely this will make much of a difference when looking at the bigger picture this is another sign of why cryptocurrencies are not ready for mainstream used by any means even though twitch saw merit in experimenting with this new form of money the collaboration didn’t last all that long although streamers can still accept Bitcoin through coinbase if they set up and link their personal account manually it seems unlikely Bitcoin and alt coins will make much of an impact on twitch in the foreseeable future a very unfortunate development for this fledgling industry but it was somewhat

you with more Bitcoin headline news and analysis soon you we understand the importance of security around private keys dot the entry of institutions into the cryptocurrency sector has been an important point of discussion in the crypto sphere this reason was the backbone of the hype created by the entry of fidelity into the world of digital assets in a recent interview during the DC blockchain summit Tom Jessup the head of fidelity digital assets stated that the organization had planned to get a foot in the crypto race for a long time he revealed that fidelity had hired cryptographers and other officials earlier to ensure that they were always one step ahead in the crypto race Jessup stated that when he joined the company many companies were getting ready to bring in digital assets at a time when the buzz around Bitcoin was blooming he said one of the main areas of focus is to understand the current market infrastructure and to create a roadmap aim to go further by integrating new technologies the security around private keys is another aspect we consider and understand because we have been mining Bitcoin for some time we had the DNA earlier all we need to learn is how to transfer it Tom Jessup also claimed that fidelity had secure locations in multiple jurisdictions and multiple cold storages ie storages that have never touched a network in the ecosystem according to Jessup fidelity wants to launch a state-of-the-art platform by the end of 2019 he also addressed the expectation that fidelity would conduct of grand launch of the platform in q1 Jessup added we will also begin scaling of the platform but that is easier said than done the company needs licenses and jurisdiction when earlier the interest was largely around cryptocurrencies and native hedge funds fidelity also commissioned a study to talk to many institutions about crypto allocations with an aim to solve the issue of market volatility in an earlier interview with CNBC Jessup touched upon the lack of education in the space and said they’ve approached us wanting to learn which is an encouraging sign that’s not to say that there’s a cohort of people that once they get educated will still have a negative view you Bitcoin ether an xrp weekly market update March 28 2019 the total crypto market cap gained 1 billion dollars for the 7 day period and now stands at 142

of the outrage centered around the co-founders of neutrino the founders in question are Giancarlo Russo Marco Valeri and Alberto or naggy and the reason they are controversial is that they have a background with a commercial software firm the technology developed by this team has reportedly been used by several authoritarian governments across the world which is ironic considering blockchain

has once again given cryptocurrency market predictions the long term Bitcoin both stated earlier that sentiment will once again turn positive during 2019 lead draws on technical macro and fundamental indicators to make these conclusions however we all know that he has been wrong on more than one occasion when it comes to Bitcoin price Tom Lee Bitcoin cash fork Wars terrible for investor confidence Tom Lee the co-founder of fun straight Global Advisors appeared earlier today on a CNBC segment titled futures now there he was asked about his outlook for the Bitcoin BTC and general crypto currency markets Leigha mind that 2019 was a year of repair for BTC he stated that the Bitcoin cashed hard fork and the subsequent fork wars as he refers to threats made by Craig s right to 51% attack the Bitcoin ABC side of the split out of existence had been massively detrimental for investor confidence during the so-called fork Wars the price of Bitcoin dropped steeply from the low $6,000 range it had held for many weeks down to just above $3,000 we therefore expects this range to serve as massive resistance on the way back up however the BTC optimist did highlight multiple positive factors that he believes will allow the market to soar when sentiment does finally improve these included previous macro headwinds the fact that the dollar performed so well in 2018 for example infrastructure improvements the launch of fidelities custody solution in the backed platform and finally technical indicators Bitcoin price is now comfortably bouncing along the 200-day moving average the upcoming launch of various crypto products from multi trillion-dollar fidelity has many excited the conversation then turned briefly to Venezuela Lee pointed out that people they were starting to use cryptic see thanks to the hyper-inflated Bolivar turmoil is causing adoption to grow Lee JPM coin is no competition for Bitcoin when going through the various positive factors that would boost the Bitcoin price when sentiment finally improved Lee mentioned the launch of digital currencies by some of the planets largest financial institutions and companies this prompted a question about whether such centralized digital assets posed a threat to bitcoins value proposition the Research Analyst replied that II did not think that it represented competition in that Bitcoin would remain at the center of the digital currency universe it’s not a threat to Bitcoin because it doesn’t offer upside but it probably makes other stable coin projects less useful bitcoin is essentially starting to look like a reserve currency for digital currencies in general finally Lee was pushed for a timeline for market sentiment to improve the fund strid co-founder stated that he felt it needed perhaps five or six months more to recover from the plunge into the $3,000 4004 classed year it is worth remembering that Tong Lee has been spectacularly wrong about BTC price predictions in the past he spent most of 2018 calling for BTC to exceed its previous all-time high set at the end of 2017 this of course never happened his new outlook appears more measured by contrast and the analyst has been aloof from

technology can improve your business right now if you honor a business owner you’ve likely had a quarter or two where you did a ton of work served a million clients and ended up with nothing more than a few pennies in your bank account don’t fret though I hear this is normal there’s a popular saying that you need to spend money to make money and that may be true but if you are like me I’m sure you’ve wondered if success could be a bit more affordable than it currently is most businesses today lose money due to procedural delays human error and fees paid to middlemen can you imagine what your bank account would look like if you could speed your business up eliminate silly mistakes and kick those infernal middlemen to the curb if those ideas sounds likely a wishful thinking you’ll be surprised to know that they are actually quite possible what the heck am I talking about making your business faster more efficient and more cost effective with blockchain technology but what is blockchain blockchain is a type of technology that records transactions to a digital ledger where they cannot be changed or altered these records or blocks of information are linked using cryptography the info on a blockchain is easily verifiable and open to the public block chains are also decentralized so the data are shared with all the computers on the network PS if you’ve ever wondered why decentralization is so important these days just take a look at this a number of applications are built on the blockchain blockchain applications provide a wide variety of solutions you need to improve your business how can you use blockchain technology to increase your learnings consider the five ways outlined below one use smart contracts the smart contract is a self-executing contract that has the terms of all parties written directly into the code the codons terms of the contract exists on a decentralized block network smart contracts ensure all parties in the agreement do what they are supposed to these self automated programs run without downtime and without the interference of external parties so how does a smart contract help you get more money Wow it ensures you get paid once you deliver on your end of the deal plus if the other party backs a little short notice your goods / services are returned to you this means you never have to use lawyers government officials or other fee charges middlemen to settle disputes all in all the smart contract is a fantastic tool to use when you are forced to do business with jerks people you don’t trust or people you simply don’t know to hire better people a team is only as strong as its weakest member and the same is true for your business it is important to choose the right people to work with you so that your business can grow hiring the right employee this requires a lot of time effort and research however blockchain technology can make the job a whole lot easier have you ever tweaked your CV to make it a little more impressive to potential employers if you’ve done it or consider doing it before you can be sure your potential employees may think about doing the same to you job candidates often use Photoshop to forge impressive documents or they may claim to be the former captain of their high school basketball team even if they don’t have a single athletic bone in their body the main reason they do this is they know you likely won’t have the time or resources to double-check their qualifications but just imagine having access to easily verifiable records of a potential employee right at your fingertips academic records extracurricular activities past employment records and references are all stored for you on a nun in modifiable digital ledger if you encounter an impressive candidate you can quickly confirm the authenticity of his or her qualifications and hire the individual on the spot having crossed were the data that is readily available reduces the length of the hiring process and helps you hire the right people to improve your business 3 make faster cheaper payments blockchain had it start in Bitcoin so it shouldn’t be a surprise that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies can be used to pay your employees making crypto payments on the blockchain is especially beneficial when you have international and/or remote workers blockchain allows you to compensate your workers in less than an hour without the outrageous transaction fees associated with traditional banking systems or remittance services paying employees using cryptocurrency may even help you save money in other ways having records of your transactions on the blockchain makes it easy to track your cash flow and keep track of all your payments so you’ll never overpay on your taxes and you’ll have nothing to fear if the IRS comes knocking for get to know your customers better blockchain facilitates reliable Identity Management your customers and your employees have digital IDs that make it easy to verify their identity if this information is stored on a blockchain network it reduces the risk of identity theft money laundering fraud and other cyber security concerns as the information on the blockchain cannot be changed it allows people to take control of their personal data clear transaction records also help you and your customers to see how your relationship has progressed over time with blockchain technology you can identify loyal customers learn more about their spending patterns and steadily build your customer base 5 improve your marketing campaigns good marketing is vital to every business but with the number of businesses competing for attention today it may be difficult to get yours to stand out to potential consumers I’m sure you are already familiar with using social media posts billboards in high traffic areas TV commercials newspaper advertisements and direct mailing as methods of promotion however blockchain may make your marketing efforts even more effective blockchain can be used by marketers to keep track of client information and consumer behavior with this data skilled marketers can craft clever campaigns that bring greater ROI any changes made to your campaigns or other media releases during development can also be identified with these if you encounter a mistake down the road you can use the blockchain to find out who made it and when finally blockchain allows marketers to verify that the traffic they’ve tracked is from real people when you’re marketing stats are not inflated by bought activity you get a much bigger bang for every buck you spend on marketing it is evident that blockchain technology will soon take over many of the everyday processes that businesses undertake why not stay a step ahead and put some money in your pocket by trying it out it is already a reliable option for a number of traditional businesses in the banking and insurance fields even if you are a budding entrepreneur by

see you with more Bitcoin headline news and analysis soon you the pitfalls of using kin market caps prices as a novice grip to investor the crypto set price Data Platform kin market cap is not only the go-to platform for digital asset prices but remains one of the most visited websites on the Internet while cane market cap CMC has managed to play a vital role in introducing cryptocurrencies to new investors since the early days of the alt point market the platform has increasingly commander scrutiny for its lack of professionalism and questionable business practices a problematic pricing methodology those who have been in crypto for longer than 5 minutes know not to trust kin market caps prices the main reason for this is it’s problematic pricing methodology to calculate the asset prices you see on its platform kin market cap takes a volume weighted average of market pair prices the rationale for using a weighted average is because in general markets with higher volume have higher liquidity and are less prone to price fluctuations while CMC does state that it excludes exchanges if the exchanges price does not seem indicative of a free market price the platform seems to happily accept all exchange data fees as they come seemingly without conducting due diligence on the legitimacy of the trading platforms data sources several exchanges that can market cap includes for its data feed our small unregulated exchanges whose data integrity is more than questionable the volume of any cryptocurrency is the total spot trading volume reported by all exchanges over the last 24 hours for that cryptocurrency the company states on its website kin market cap does mention though that it refrains from using volume data if an exchange does not enforce the trading fee or otherwise offers significant incentives to trade on the market pair however this does not even come close to filtering out all exchanges that engage in wash Trading hence CMC s volume data is far from representative of an assets available liquidity it has been reported on numerous occasions that many digital asset exchange volumes are not representative of an assets real trading activity and thus its actual liquidity the blockchain transparency Institute has recently published a report highlighting this issue therefore since CMC puts more weight on prices from exchanges with the highest trading volumes which are often falsified the prices on the platform cannot give an accurate representation of the price level a crypto sitter’s actually trading an unfortunate history of promoting scams while cane market camps history of promoting cryptocurrency scans through banner ads may not have many implications on the quality of its data feed it would suggest that the company’s leadership ethics are questionable as castle island ventures partner Nick Carter highlighted in a blog post kin market cap has run ads for cryptocurrencies counts bit connect its connect and bit petite for which the company has been paid handsomely at the expense of unwitting investors who eventually lost money moreover kin market cap pranked bit connect in its top 10 cryptocurrencies in July 2017 when the market value of the BCC coin merited an entry the issue however was that the day to use to calculate BCC’s market capitalisation came predominantly from the Ponzi scheme zone exchange datafeed myth 7 kin market cap hosted by connect banner ads for five months it was actually six – Nick Carter at Nick underscore underscore Carter made the fourth 2018 despite warnings from notable community members kin market cap did not Delos BCC and continued to rank it among the most valuable coins in the market additionally even after bit Connect collapsed its fraudulent coin was still being priced on kin market cap for another six months a lack of coin due diligence the kin market cap bit connect story also highlights the issue of the platform’s complete lack of due diligence for the digital currencies and tokens it lists while one may argue that the crypto set markets are the pinnacle of free markets and that any tradable seht deserves to have its price listed the reality is that retail investors often with little to no investment knowledge go on to Kin market cap to discover new investment opportunities by listing effectively every tradable digital asset regardless of how do you miss it maybe kin market cap is facilitating potentially fraudulent cryptocurrency projects by introducing them to potential investors the number of scan coins that have come and gone and had been listed on CMC are in the dozens if not hundreds CMC has seemingly made little to no effort to filter out assets that have a high potential of turning out to be scams use can market cap with care kin market cap is an excellent platform if you want a quick and dirty snapshot of whether market roughly is however using kin market camp prices to make trading decisions or worse to price financial instruments or value portfolios means opening yourself up to an added layer of risk kin market caps shortcomings are perhaps most pronounced when it comes to small cap crypto suits whether price listed on CMC is regularly far away from where you can actually trade the asset especially if you are looking to trade more than a few hundred dollars the current pricing methodology deployed by kin market cap combined with its lack of due diligence makes the platform unusable for serious investors hence it is not surprising that a range of new crypto saat priced data platforms have launched in the last few years as financial institutions are searching for trustworthy pricing to build new cryptocurrency based financial products and solutions kin market cap remains the go-to crypto pricing source for retail investors and this is unlikely to change soon the platform’s first mover advantage has enabled it to establish itself as an authority despite its evident shortcomings for the sake of new investors entering the space commentators can only hope that CMC cleans up its act and improves the quality of the data it provides on its platform want to see accurate up to the nanosecond
