BM Radar is launching the wallet for BMT tokens "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The functionality of the wallet allows you not only to start working with tokens, but also to perform a full cycle of operations, including deposits and transfer between users and their accounts.

Now BM Radar messenger is used by tens of thousands of people around the world. For another 33,000 people who receive BMT on the BM platform the application will be available by the end of November.

The solution itself combines the advantages of a messenger and online banking, the elements of which are planned to be implemented in the future as a system of settlements between companies and buyers. In addition, the user will also be able to view the history of transactions and exchange messages, as well as a database of information and support services.

In the future, the application will include a showcase of special offers in the form of cards with the goods and services which can be bought for BMT tokens.

According to preliminary forecasts of the developers launching their own wallet may optimize the process of popularization of the token among users of the future platform and increase the circulation of the currency itself, since there is currently no single centralized solution that would cover the needs of the tokenholders.

Implementation of such a large-scale scope of work in a short time and updating to the level of mass consumption became possible due to involvement of the Business Molodost community of many thousands of users with real demand for the creation of a powerful self-developing infrastructure. The...

Experty Announces Its Plans to Use Proof of Care Concept to Help with Pre-Contribution Phase "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Zug, Switzerland, November 22, 2017 Today, Experty announced they are implementing Proof-of-Care during their pre contribution phase. Experty decided to use the concept developed by their advisor Richard Ma of Quantstamp. Richard Ma, CEO of Quantstamp, noticed there was a glaring problem with ICOs token distribution. He developed the concept of proof of care to help alleviate some of these issues. Proof of Care ensures that those who truly care about the project get higher priority in the token allocation, along with a bonus for those that qualify. Proof of caring solves the distribution issue that many ICOs experience. Often times, whales scoop up tokens the moment the ICO begins, leaving nothing for smaller participants. This causes a disparity in the token distribution and defeats decentralization.

Experty believes that tokens should be distributed fairly, evenly, and to those that will actually use them. This prevents large market dumps of tokens post-ICO and gives tokens to people who are loyal to the product. And want it for its real utility. Experty has made it their mission to bring their platform to the mainstream.

Kamil Przeorski, CEO of Experty said, Experty is a practical application designed for widespread use. Transactions on the network are done in EXY tokens, which means users must own EXY tokens. Even and fair distribution, especially to those that will be using the application is essential to our success.

The proof of care concept allows the community to be involved in the project and receive valuable feedback from the supporters. It allows ICOs to reward its loyal supporters.

SophiaTX Integrates Blockchain Technology With SAP "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

https://www.sophiatx.com/en/blog/2/the-world-s-first-open-source-platform-to-integrate-sap.html

In September, SophiaTX announced the first open-source platform to primarily integrate blockchain technology with SAP software, used by 87 percent of global businesses and 98 percent of the top 100 most-valued brands.

To advance blockchain into business operations, the blockchain must integrate with ERP [enterprise resource planning] and other enterprise applications such as SAP, notes the SophiaTX white paper. This sector has been relatively untouched until recently when Equidato Technologies AG [SophiaTXs parent company] announced their first project, SophiaTX, an open source blockchain platform and marketplace designed for businesses of all sizes.

The integration of blockchain technology with ERP, CRM (customer relationship management) and SCM (supply chain management) business software is certainly a hot topic pursued by major vendors and blockchain-oriented solution developers. In May, SAP itself launched its innovation system, dubbed SAP Leonardo, focused on next-generation technologies, with an SAP Cloud Platform Blockchain service targeted at all industries, including but not limited to popular use cases in financial services and supply chains. SAPs blockchain technology platform allows customers and developers to build blockchain extensions for existing applications and integrate SAP solutions in the blockchain ecosystem. Embedded in the SAP Cloud Platform, SAPs blockchain-as-a-service (BaaS) pilot allows customers to experiment with the technology.

Blockstarter set to Create a better Infrastructure for ICO "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Many startup companies are now embracing the idea of blockchain technology. They are now holding ICOs to be able to enhance their blockchain platform. Holding an ICO is not an easy task and requires a lot of time and money. Most of all the ICOs nowadays are using the Ethereum as their technology therefore offering ERC20 tokens. Government regulators like the SEC are attempting to standardize the process of   cryptocurrency based campaigns. To run a campaign, there are requirements one needs to have met like having a comprehensive whitepaper that shows about the company, the infrastructure, the ICO and the team.

Blockstarter Technology

Blockstarter is an Ethereum based platform that will enable companies to arrange their project and ICO by just a few clicks. It will allow you to list your campaign, create a smart contract, raise funds through the ICO or even be able to contribute to other businesses through the platform. It will reduce the time and cost used in creating your own campaign.

The Blockstarter has an engine where it is able to tackle a range of technical issues faced while holding an ICO. It allows the projects to receive contributions through different cryptocurrencies and transparent distribution of tokens. Using Blockstarter you may host your ICO on their website where you will be able to activate a contribution panel. Another option will be to launch your own website for the crowdsale and use the Blockstarters contribution panel as a white-labeled solution. Aside from Ether, Blockstarter allows Bitcoin, Dash, Litecoin, and Dogecoin as a means of transaction. The currencies received during the ICO process are stored in their respective accounts, awaiting further operation by those holding the ICO campaign.

ICO

Blockstarter is powered by its native ZBS tokens. The total amount of tokens is fixed at 100,000,000 ZBS and the price is set 1USD = 12.5 ZBS or 1 ETH = 3750 ZBS at the rate of 1ETH = 300 USD.

Startups that would like to advertise their companies in recent times have to hire experts in cryptocurrency and blockchain technology. Blockstarter seeks to reduce this by enabling less-skilled experts to create the campaign by offering a user-friendly interface to create the campaign and hold the ICO.

FSP Releasing a New 2000 Watt Dedicated Power Supply for Mininers "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The power supply (PSU) is one of the most important component for any crypto miner, even though it is often neglected as such by some miners, so it is no wonder that companies producing power supplies are starting to focus on the mining segment providing dedicated products. There are some companies such as Enermax, EVGA, Leadex that have very powerful power supplies that are not originally intended to be used for ASIC miners or GPU mining rigs, but often find their place as such. Fortron (FSP) however has announced their plans to release the first 2000 Watt power supply dedicated for miners and not for gamers or entusiasts the FSP2000-A0AGPBI.

A good power supply for crypto mining needs has to offer high power output, good efficiency, reliability and most of all enough power connectors to suit every need that the miner will have for a certain application. FSP did that with the FSP2000-A0AGPBI by providing users with a good product offering 80 PLUS Platinum certification and 16x 6+2 PCI-E power connectors, so that should be enough for a lot of video cards or ASIC miners that fit into the power specs of the PSU. What mightve been better is the peripheral connectors as they seem to be less than the ideal number you would want to have on a 2000 Watt power supply as you still need these for powering PCI-E extenders and it is never a good idea to connect more than two of these on a single line.

The FSP2000-A0AGPBI power supply is not fancy in terms of looks or offer any fancy stuff like RGB lights or whatever as you often see on some high-end gaming oriented products, it focuses on performance and features, though there is more to be desired. One would expect to see a great price that makes interesting alternative to already available similar products, but unfortunately there are talks about 450 EUR price and you might be able to get 2000W Leadex with similar specs for less. So again, there is more to be desired from FSP as they havent apparently taken into account all of the requirements that crypto miners might have from such a product and price also being one of the important factors that needs consideration.

Bitcoin Price Watch; Heres What Were Looking At Tonight "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

So thats another day complete in our bitcoin price trading efforts and we are now about to enter what will likely be a period of low volume. Why? Because the Thanksgiving festivities are well underway in the US and theres going to be very little in the way of major participation over the next couple of days as a result.

This doesnt mean, of course, that we wont see any action. Things are still very much active in Asia (although its the overnight session there right now) and the European evening has plenty of time to go moving forward.

In fact, theres a good chance well see some choppiness especially if the bitcoin price mimics the kind of action we see in the more traditional financial asset markets near term.

Whatever happens, well be ready.

So, with this all in place, lets get some levels outlined that we can use to try and draw a profit from the market as and when things move this evening. As ever, take a quick look at the chart below before we get going so as to get an idea where things stand and where well be looking to get in and out of the markets when things move.

As the chart shows, the range we are looking at this evening is defined by support to the downside at 8190 and resistance to the upside at 8243. We are going to look at jumping into a long trade if we see a close above resistance, with an upside target of 8285.

Looking the other way, if we get a close below support, we will jump in short towards a downside target of 8150. We will use a stop loss on both positions somewhere in the region of 10-15 points the other side of the entry to take us out of the trades if things turn against us.

Lets see how things play out.

Innovative cloud mining with the HashHive project and its ongoing ICO "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Cloud mining is the process of extracting of cryptocurrency, using a remote data center. Using services that provide cloud mining will allow you to receive income without significant investment, in contrast to traditional mining, since the cryptocurrency is extracted on the company equipment that is installed remotely. However, how to choose such a service among many others, with the help of which you can get income without big risks when investing? First of all, to study how the service works.

How does cloud mining work within the HashHive project?

First of all, you need to register an account in HashHive service and get into your personal account. Then, the user buys for fiat money or cryptocurrency a certain amount of hash-power, which begins to make a profit immediately. Subsequently, every day your balance charges with earned cryptocurrency, which you can reinvest by purchasing of additional hash-power, or simply accumulate it. As the users account accumulates a certain amount, you can withdraw it to your crypto wallet, and then exchange withdrawn cryptocurrency for fiat money through one of the exchanges.

When choosing one of cloud mining services, it is necessary to study the technologies and equipment, which are used within each of them, as this is almost the key success factor.

Technologies and equipment of the HashHive project

HashHive uses modern equipment and technologies, which significantly reduces the cost of hash-power. The projects cooperation with large companies for the supply of immersion equipment, as well as equipment for generating electricity, allows HashHive to use:

  • advanced immersion cooling system for mining servers, with the help of which servers consume less power due to removal server fans and lower component temperatures, and the cost of building data center become several times lower, because the system can be deployed in an unprocessed bare case, such as warehouse, without capital-intensive air conditioning equipment;
  • highly effective gas piston engine as a source of primary and backup power, prime cost of power generation from which significantly less than from buying electricity through networks, so it will allow to save money;
  • modern immersion equipment with the use of GPU chips for mining of cryptocurrency, which, unlike to ASIC chips, have a longer service life, allow you to mine all altcoins, and practically do not lose in value;
  • various algorithms for mining of cryptocurrencies, such as NeoScrypt, Lyra2REv2, DaggerHashimoto, Equihash, X11, Sia, Decred and some others;
  • mining of various cryptocurrencies, such as Ethereum, Zcash, DASH, SiaCoin, Decred (DCR), Monero, for diversification of risks....

Why generous ICO bonuses may indicate scam "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The future of finance is crowdfunding. This means that investments are no longer available to just a few. Furthermore, startups dont have to depend on or commit to all the required conditions of one venture capital investment.

This has resulted in multiple platforms like Kickstarter to help entrepreneurs turn their projects into reality. But in recent months, with the rise of cryptocurrencies, things are rapidly changing.

When it comes to the blockchain, in particular, crowdfunding has become extremely popular in the form of ICOs (Initial Coin Offering). This approach is basically exchanging cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin for tokens.

ICOs are now so popular that several are launched every week. As a result, this can make it difficult to clearly identify which ones are good and which ones are bad.

So what should you look for before parting with your crypto coins?

The standard is to go through the background of the founders to see if they have the skills needed to deliver results. If they have a successful track record, a background in crypto, or have made a name for themselves in similar areas, it will be a safe investment opportunity.

But thats not enough as you also have to look at the companys goals. Are they realistic? If not, that should be a sign to take a step back.

You also have to read through the whitepaper to see if all the claims in there add up. If its just a bunch of buzzwords thrown in together, youre probably going to get ripped off.

The race to invest and access bonuses can fool investors

As investors are afraid of missing out on a great opportunity to invest in the next Airbnb or Uber, ICOs can sometimes sell out within minutes. As a result, investors might not have the time to do due diligence before parting with their cryptocurrencies.

Another driving force behind this phenomenon is the promise of bonuses. Bonuses are usually structured around the total amount of the investment, but sometimes investors may submit their transaction to receive as much as a 90% bonus.

This contributes to increased uncertainty as investors will rush to get the best bonus which is usually capped within minutes. In this scenario, cumulative amount or short-period bonuses should be avoided along with bonuses that offer more than 20%.

The Birth Of New Bitcoin Fork-Bitcoin-Diamond (BCD) Launched with Extensive Research and Development "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

After nine years of rapid development of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Diamond, a new cryptocurrency, was recently launched and the innovators dubbed it as the fruit of their long research and development.

Singapore, 23th November : Bitcoin Diamond, a new cryptocurrency was recently launched by Team EVEY& Team 007, two teams of bitcoin miners who were not happy with some of the major downsides of Bitcoin. After nine years of rapid development and various issues that the miners faced with Bitcoin, such as lack of privacy protection, high transaction fees and slow transaction speed, the teams finally collaborated and rolled out Bitcoin Diamond.

Bitcoin Diamond or BCD will solve the known downsides of Bitcoin, according to Bitcoin Diamond Foundation, the collaborative venture.

Bitcoin Diamond is a fork of Bitcoin that occurs at the predetermined height of block 495866, said an EVEY team member while also launching the official website http://www.btcd.io/index.html.

Bitcoin Diamond miners will begin creating blocks with a new proof-of-work algorithm, and will consecutively develop and enhance the protection for account transfer and privacy based on original features of BTC. The original Bitcoin blockchain will continue on unaltered, and a new branch of the blockchain will split off from the original chain. It shares the same transaction history with Bitcoin until it starts branching and coming into a unique block from which it diverges. As a result of this process, a new cryptocurrency was created which we call Bitcoin Diamond, he commented.

According to the team member, Bitcoin Diamond has various benefits, such as better privacy protection, encryption of the amount and balance which protects customers privacy and faster transaction confirmations.

Bitcoin Diamond has raised the block size as part of a massive on-chain scaling approach. There is ample capacity for everyones transactions. The speed of generating blocks will be increased five times and the ultimate goal is to improve transaction confirmation speed for the entire BTC blockchain, said another team member.

He also added that Bitcoin Diamond will lower the cost of participation thresholds. According to him, it will reduce the transaction fees and the cost of participation. The total amount of Bitcoin Diamond is ten times as much of Bitcoin which will reduce the cost of the new participation and lower the thresholds, he told the press.

It is reported that Bitcoin Diamond has been supported by a number of exchanges, and after EXX.COM issued an announcement of on-line BCD spot goods and futures trading in recent days yesterday, huobi.pro, okex.com, coinnest.com, gate.io, bitsun, bibox, btctrade,...

ElectronGold is Effectively Stealing Bitcoin Gold Users Private Keys "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Ever since Bitcoin Gold launched, there have been a fair few issues. Most users still cant claim their funds properly unless they use a TREZOR or Coinomi wallet. While the currency is trading on some exchanges, it is still a niche market. ElectronGold is a website people really need to be careful of when it comes to claiming Bitcoin Gold. It seems the software used is designed to steal private keys. The nefarious activity in cryptocurrency continues unabated.

A lot of Bitcoin holders attempt to claim their Bitcoin Gold. This process has been far more complicated than it really should be. The launch of BTG has been anything but stellar, and things are only getting more complex. A limited number of wallets support BTG right now. Of those wallets, not every piece of software can be trusted either. ElectronGold, for example, is a wallet people need to avoid before they lose their money.

More Problems for Bitcoin Gold Enthusiasts

Although the developers claim it is a fork of Electrum, there is a lot more going on. Everything looks normal at first, but the source code of this project hints at a malicious activity. One user points out how this wallet mainly steals private keys rather than help users. Not the smartest business model, that much is evident. It is unclear how many users were affected by this theft already. It goes to show things will remain very difficult for the Bitcoin Gold supporters as well.

The Electrum team has nothing to do with this project, mind you. Someone took their code on GitHub and modified it. Once that was done, it was given the name of ElectronGold to appeal to Bitcoin Gold users.  In the source code is a dropped VBA6 app responsible for exporting private keys. A very disturbing development that needs to be addressed sooner rather than later. This type of activity should not be tolerated whatsoever.

It also appears someone is trying to discredit developer Fyookbal in the process. More specifically, they put his name on the ElectronGold creation despite not being affiliated with it. It is a bit unclear what is going on exactly, but this is a very problematic development. It will only make people even warier of Bitcoin Gold moving forward. The altcoin was struggling well before this incident. It seems things will only get a lot worse from here on out. We can only hope not too many pe...

Bitcoin Price Watch; Heres Whats On This Morning In Europe "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

It is Thanksgiving in the US today so chances are were going to see some lighter than normal volume with regards to our trading in the bitcoin price at least, that is, throughout the US session later on. This morning, theres a good chance we will see no real impact, meaning we could get some considerable volatility during the European session.

So, with that said, lets dive straight into our analysis and put together some levels that we can use to try and draw a profit from the market as and when things move during the session today.

As ever, take a quick look at the chart below to get an idea where things stand. It is a one-minute candlestick chart and it has our range overlaid green.

As the bitcoin price chart shows, the range we are looking at for the session today comes in as defined by support to the downside at 8080 and resistance to the outside at 8147. We are going to look at jumping into a long trade if and when we see a close above resistance. On the trade, we will target an upside level of 8195 and will use a stop loss somewhere in the region of 8135 to ensure that we are taken out of the position for a small loss if things turn against us in the markets.

Thats the long trade. Now the short trade.

If price breaks below support, we will watch out for a close below that level to validate (signal) a downside entry towards a target of 8000 flat. Again, we need to place a stop on this one to ensure that we dont get caught up on the wrong end of an irretrievable loss. With this in mind, we will look at placing an SL somewhere in the region of 8110.

Lets see how things play out.

Bitcoin Cash Price Moves Up as Mining Profitability Favors BCH Again "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Bitcoin Cash remains a very interesting creature in the world of cryptocurrency. Although the opinions on this altcoin remain divided, no one can argue the value is surging. More specifically, the price per BCH has surpassed $1,500 again overnight. It also appears the mining profitability is slightly in favor of BCH as of right now. An interesting future lies ahead for this particular currency, that much is evident.

In a way, it was a matter of time until Bitcoin Cash saw another pump. It is hard to classify price momentum like this as it often comes out of the blue. Now that the hard fork has been dialed in properly, things are slowly returning to normal for BCH. That means we may see the price move toward $2,000 before the year is over. It will all depend on how much people are willing to pay for this currency.

More Positive Momentum for Bitcoin Cash

So far, we have seen a 32% increase in price over the past 24 hours. This seems to coincide with Bitcoin Cash becoming more profitable to mine. Although the difference is minuscule between both chains, BCH is the best option at the time of writing. Whether or not enough people care about this 0.2% difference, is doubtful, though. Speaking of the mining situation, an interesting situation is developing. An unknown entity is mining nearly half of the network blocks all of a sudden.

Since these blocks do not belong to an official pool, it is interesting to keep an eye on. When the network first launched, we had unknown miners generate 75% of all blocks for a few days. This doesnt appear to be a repeat process, though. In fact, we see there are several entities labeled as Unknown. All of them use a different coin base text when they find a block. That in itself is pretty interesting, albeit also a bit worrisome. At the same time, it shows greater interest in Bitcoin Cash as a whole.

This upcoming weekend will be rather interesting for all cryptocurrencies. With virtually all top currencies in the green, fireworks are to be expected. Who will come out on top, remains the big question. Right now, the momentum favors BCH, but that can always change at any given moment. Monero has been going strong all week as well, as has Dash.

ETH/USD and ETH/BTC Technical Analysis November 23 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Hello and welcome to News BTCs Market Outlook November.

ETH/USD

ethusd

Ethereum continues to be volatile and choppy and a reasonably tight range between $350 level on the bottom, and $370 on the top. I think this is a simple accumulation phase, and the short-term pullbacks offer value the people will be willing to take advantage of. Because of this, I believe that waiting for a short dip in this market is probably the best way to accumulate more before we go looking towards the $400 level.

ETH/BTC

ethbtc

Currently, this market is going nowhere. There isnt much to say about it other than its probably best left alone, at least until we get some type of significant move. Both currencies are going reasonably well, and consolidating at high levels against the US dollar. Because of this, it doesnt look like this market will move very much.

Thanks for watching, Ill be back tomorrow.

DASH/USD and LTC/USD Technical Analysis November 23 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Hello and welcome to News BTCs Market Outlook November.

DASH/USD

dashusd

DASH continues to power ahead, touching $575 during the trading session on Wednesday. I suspect that we will probably get a pullback though, and at this point you need to see that happen to get enough value out of a trade. The stochastic oscillator is crossing in the overbought level, and the next major area of order flow is very likely to be $500. A pull back to that area would be very enticing.

LTC/USD

ltcusd

Litecoin has been a bit stagnant over the last 24 to 48 hours, as we struggle with the $72 level above. I think that we will continue to find support a $68 however, so this offers opportunities to pick up Litecoin and cheaper levels going forward. Its not until we break down below $60 that I become concerned with the uptrend, and I recognize that most of the crypto currency space right now is accumulating, not powering forward.

Thanks for watching, Ill be back tomorrow.

Ripple Price Technical Analysis XRP/USD Eyes Further Gains "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price remains in major uptrend above the $0.2350 support against the US Dollar.
  • Yesterdays highlighted ascending channel with current support near $0.2350 is intact on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair will most likely move further higher towards the 0.2550 and 0.2600 levels.

Ripple price is placed well in the bullish zone against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD might soon retest $0.2600 and it could even break it.

Ripple Price Trend

There were slow and steady gains in Ripple price above $0.2300 against the US Dollar. The price after declining towards $0.2000 found support and since then moved higher. It moved above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.2680 high to 0.2048 low. The best part is the fact that the price is now placed well above the $0.2300 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

More importantly, yesterdays highlighted ascending channel with current support near $0.2350 is intact on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair is likely to continue moving higher and it might soon test the channel resistance near $0.2550. The stated $0.2550 level also represents the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.2680 high to 0.2048 low. Above $0.2550, the pair would easily break the $0.2600 level for more gains in the near term. There are even chances of XRP retesting the last swing high of $0.2650.

Ripple Price Technical Analysis XRP USD

On the downside, the channel support at $0.2350 is very important. The stated $0.2350 support also coincides with the 100 hourly simple moving average. Therefore, $0.2350 and $0.2300 can be considered as a good buy zone as long as the pair is above the 100 hourly SMA.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD The MACD for XRP/USD is moving nicely in the bearish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for XRP/USD is above the 50 level and is showing positive signs.

Major Support Level $0.2350

BTC/USD and BTC/JPY Technical Analysis November 23 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Hello and welcome to News BTCs Market Outlook November.

BTC/USD

btcusd

Bitcoin fell slightly against the US dollar after initially trying to rally on Wednesday in what could probably be best described as listless trading. The $8000 level below should be psychologically supportive though, so I expect that this is going to continue to be a buy on the dips market, as we are accumulating more momentum for the next move higher.

BTC/JPY

btcjpy

Bitcoin continues to grind higher against the Japanese yen, although we did stall a bit during the trading session on Wednesday. It looks as if we are trying to form an ascending triangle, so I suspect that the buyers are going to come back in relatively soon. Either way, I think its almost a foregone conclusion that BTC rises to 1 million at this point.

Thanks for watching, Ill see you again tomorrow.

DASH AND MONERO RALLY WHILE IOTA IS PEAKING NOVEMBER 23 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

As perfect BTC alternatives, DASH and Monero are rallying perhaps benefiting from capital injection.

Alt coin Monero is actually trending above August highs of $153. If bulls push harder, buyers looks likely to jump in.

In the meantime, IOTA is peaking and USD bulls are driving prices lower with first targets at $0.732.

Lets look at the charts:

TODAY FOCUS: DASH AND MONERO RALLY

 

ALT COIN DASH BULLISH BUT STRONG RESISTANCE EXPECTED AT $582

alt coin DASH and Monero 4HR chartDASHUSD 4HR Chart for November 23, 2017

One thing is clear, DASH bulls are in charge. As a result, it is safe to say that every dip is a buy opportunity.

Because of that, we shall shift our support lines to November 12 and 18 highs of $540 and $486 respectively. At the moment though, bullish momentum is strong because of that band divergence and of course the bullish stochastic signal.

We already have a bearish candlestick dropping from yesterdays highs of $582. If there is a follow through, then we wait for a retest of $540 support line.

However, if not, $670 is the next bull target especially if November 22 highs is cleared.

MONERO BULLS DRIVE PRICES ABOVE AUGUST HIGHS OF $153

alt coin DASH and Monero 4HR chartXMRUSD 4HR Chart for November 23, 2017

Bull momentum is strong and as it now, August highs of $153 has been cleared. Because of the general bullish momentum in the weekly chart, traders were taking long positions only. Bull projection will be null after Monero prices trickle down strongly from recent highs and below $153.

Currently, that has not been then case and if Monero bulls prevents depreciation below $153, then that should be bullish going forward.

However, any dip towards the 20 period MA or the support trend line with complementing stochastic buys present a wonderful opportunity to go long.

FLUX Gaming Game Developers and Players Now Own the Game "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

All game developers want to produce a blockbuster. But as the gaming world knows all too well, the business of creating blockbusters is risky. Players may move in a flash to another game for more challenge and higher rewards. Subsequent releases and new game titles may not attract the fans of the first successful title. Yet owing to the time and effort involved in developing and marketing a game, it takes a game creator a long time to build a portfolio of diversified revenue streams.

Game developers now have an alternative. The FLUX platform provides developers a platform to market games while taking a stake in the entire portfolio of games by investing in the platform. The revenue sharing platform is part of a new generation of mobile game hosts that are reinventing the gaming model on the Blockchain. The decentralized and transparent digital ledger acts as the direct matchmaker between game creators and players, eliminating the high transaction fees of traditional gaming platforms. And since players, traders and streamers can also become investors in the FLUX global gaming ecosystem, and the whole community is incentivized to promote the gaming platform.

Turning game creators into online game owners

The Blockchain gaming model is disrupting the game developer space. Developers are a captive audience to online gaming platforms, which take a large slice of their revenues. The most popular PC gaming platform Steam charges a 30 percent commission. Despite the high fees, the number of games joining Steam increased by 40 percent in 2016. As overall PC game growth declines and the mobile games market grows, the FLUX model is seeking to share that growth with developers and the rest of its ecosystem.

Game developers become investors in the FLUX platform by buying tokens, and therefore can benefit from any increase in future value of the tokens. Developers may also raise funds by launching their own ICO on the FLUX crowdfunding platform. In a unique funding model, developers do not have to wait for a crowdfunding period to be completed to withdraw FLUX coins. Instead, coins may be withdrawn at the completion of predefined stages, such as the game......

Boosteroid cloud computer announced token sale "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Boosteroid project starts its ICO on November 27th aiming to collect investments for the creation of a cloud services platform (similar to Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud). This information can be found on project blog.

Token sale details

Token sale starts on November 27th at 9:00 (CET) and ends on December 11th at 21:00 (CET). Team plans to sell 300 million BTR tokens. One BTR will cost $1,08. It will be possible to buy BTR on Boosteroid website for ETH, BTC, LTC, BCH. All unsold tokens will be destroyed.

Bonuses for investors:

1 000 BTR 100 000 BTR purchased 10%

100 000 BTR 1 000 000 BTR purchased  -15%

1 000 000 BTR and more 20%

The collected funds will be used to expand computing facilities and develop a service cloud computer that will allow to process video, create 3D-graphics, play games that require high computer performance or carry out machine learning on any device, even the most low-performance PC. The team is going to launch project demo by the end of November, 2017.

What makes Boosteroid ICO unique

Boosteroid has a significant advantage as compared to other ongoing ICO projects the platform is already being developed. The team has a promising business model and road map.

Computing facilities are already operating in Kharkov (Ukraine). When the ICO is completed the team will start scaling Boosteroid in Georgia free industrial zones and they also plan to locate computing facilities in Iceland. So this is a real business but not just an unclear idea.

We are already building our platform, however the ICO will speed up the process. Tokenization is a natural way to the new level of market relations. In our situation, we offer not just a token but a real service for the people who are willing to support our project. 1 BTR = 1 hour of computing power rent on Boosetoid computing facilities, noted Boosteroid CEO Ivan Shvaichenko.

Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis for 11/23/2017 Bearish Divergence Alert! "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Bitcoin Price Key Highlights

  • Bitcoin price continues its ascent but at a slower pace than in the previous days.
  • This could be indicative of exhaustion among buyers as a divergence is also materializing.
  • Profit-taking over the Thanksgiving weekend could lead to larger dips and a pullback opportunity.

Bitcoin price is slowing on its climb, possibly priming for a pullback on profit-taking over the Thanksgiving break.

Technical Indicators Signals

The 100 SMA is safely above the longer-term 200 SMA on this 4-hour time frame so the path of least resistance is to the upside. However, stochastic is turning lower from overbought levels to indicate that sellers are trying to regain the upper hand. RSI is heading lower as well, so bitcoin price might follow suit.

In addition, a bearish divergence can be seen from both stochastic and RSI. The former has shown lower highs so far this week while the latter had lower highs since the start of the month while bitcoin price had higher highs then.

If a drop ensues, bitcoin could still draw support from the ascending trend line connecting the lows since mid-October. This lines up with the 200 SMA dynamic inflection point after all.

Market Factors

Although bitcoin investors appear to be reducing their holdings ahead of the holidays, dollar weakness has continued to prop price higher. This was mostly due to weaker inflation forecasts, spurred by Yellens remarks the other day and the FOMC minutes yesterday.

In particular, the minutes noted that many participants worried that inflation could run below target for longer than previously expected. This dampened hopes for another set of aggressive tightening moves for next year, especially since the next Fed Chairperson is deemed less hawkish compared to Yellen.

Bitcoin price also seems to be waiting for more updates on CME bitcoin futures, which the group clarified to have no specific launch date yet since it is pending regulation. Some are doubting that it could push through this year as market watchdogs could focus on the risks involved.

Max Keiser: BTC to $100,000 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Ever-the Bitcoin bull, Max Keiser has declared that he thinks Bitcoins top will be $100,000. According to Russia Today, the network on which Keiser has a regular slot on global economics, Keiser stated in an interview that the  worlds leading digital currency is a gift from God to help humanity.

The cryptocurrency advocate went on to elaborate his predictions for the alt-coin market. For him, those currently at the top would likely remain whilst many would disappear:

Ninety percent of trading is in the top 20 coins, and that will continue. Coins will come and go. The composition of the top 20 will change less frequently. Its similar to the thousands of stocks that trade on the NYSE and NASDAQ. Over the years, many disappear, new ones are listed. The difference being that with crypto, things move 100 times faster.

Keiser went on to critique Bitcoin Cash. For him, the hard fork of Bitcoin that occurred this August is merely an attempt to cash in on the brand name of Bitcoin. The sometimes-explosive analyst referred to it as nothing more than an alt-coin and tantamount to plagiarism:

Bitcoin cash is an alt-coin that has its fans just like many alt-coins. I dont think anyone who uses bitcoins name and applies it to an alt-coin like bitcoin cash does is adhering to acceptable business practices. In other words, bitcoins brand is being stolen by a competitor that calls itself bitcoin cash and this is outright fraud in my opinion, just like its fraudulent to use Coca-Cola and Nikes name to sell soft drinks or shoes.

When asked if Bitcoin was hyper-inflated, he flipped the question on its head. Clearly, the interviewer meant was the price hyper-inflated, however, Keiser of course used the opportunity to rail against the dollar and the rate of inflation in the US. He spoke of the finite supply of Bitcoin and how the number of Bitcoins minted is ever-decreasing. Of course, being a crytocurrency proponent, he measures wealth using a scale comprising of a certain flashy, wing-doored super-car:

I can buy ten times more Lamborghinis this year than I could last year with the same amount of bitcoin. The US dollar is an inflating asset. There are trillions more of them every year. The amount I need to buy a Lamborghini keeps going up, not down. Its garbage.

He concluded by comparing those who dont believe in Bitcoin today with Michael Dell in the 1990s. The computer manufacturer called Apple an embarrassment and recommended that they shut down. Two decades later, Apple are one of the most valuable companies in the world and as Keiser reminds us: nobody talks about Michael Dell anymore.

The First Two Weeks of Crypterium ICO a Resounding Success "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The first two weeks of Crypterium ICO, which started on October 31, 2017, saw lively and robust trade, with customers flocking to the sale from all over the world. Fifteen thousand users from 143 countries have taken part in the CRPT token sale to date, helping the project reach its soft cap within the first 5 hours. Crypterium, a revolutionary cryptobank, is gearing up to create an integrated service that utilizes the most advanced blockchain features to bring cryptocurrency payment options to the real world. The funds collected through the ICO will be used to create the service, which will go live in late January.

What makes the early results particularly remarkable is the fact that the CRPT token sale attracted the attention of token-buyers from every corner of the world. Users from Russia, USA, Brazil, United Kingdom, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, South Africa, India, Nigeria, Australia, South Africa, and many other countries showed their support of the project by becoming its token holders. Although the highest number of token holders came from Russia and the United States 21.40% and 20.74%, respectively, neither of these two countries demonstrated the highest average token spending so far. The leadership in this category belongs to South Korea: an average user from this country spent nearly $2,037 on CRPT tokens. The Top Ten average purchases also included customers from the Czech Republic, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Japan, Australia, Belgium, Turkey, Malaysia, and Netherlands, whose users spent an average of $600-1200 to acquire their tokens.

But what makes this ICO truly remarkable is the overall relatively low average spending: not counting major institutional buyers, an average token holder spent just a bit over $500 to buy CRPT tokens. All this indicates that the product offered by Cryptonomos found great resonance with the public at large people are very interested in being able to use their funds in cryptocurrencies to pay for their everyday purchases.

We are extremely pleased with the early results, says Vladimir Gorbunov, Crypterium CCO and co-founder. We set out to create a product that could be useful to just about every family, and people responded. I think that both the geography and the average spending weve seen so far show that the wider blockchain community approves of what we are doing.

Crypterium is working to incorporate the decentralized cryptocurrency ecosystem into daily life. This requires, above all, creating a tool that would allow the use of cryptocurrencies to make instant payments for peoples routine everyday purchases paying the bills, dinner in a restaurant, or buying bus tickets. The projects open-source platform will also feature an innovative system to enable the acquisition of cryptocurrencies by businesses (i...

Blockchain as the Foundation for a New Banking System "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Blockchain technology can be considered the most promising site for experiments in the financial sector, which will open up unlimited possibilities and solve the acute problems of banks. It is no accident that many of the largest banks continue to rely on application development platforms using blockchain technologies.

The 2008 financial crisis severely undermined the global capital markets industry, which had to contend with an endless stream of cash-absorbing problems arising from the tightening of regulatory requirements, the increase in the cost of liquidity and the need for distribution of capital, and as a consequence of the sharp decline in incomes.

According to experts, nearly 2/3 of all IT budgets of investment banks are forced to maintain the old infrastructure and tens of billions of dollars cover projects to reduce costs. This means that most of the banks continue to pursue utopia policies, investing a lot of time, effort, liquidity  and capital in support of processes that cannot guarantee profit gains.

This is why the unique capabilities of block chain are the only way out for banks, exchanges and clearing organizations that see this technology as a powerful and effective tool for influencing the fundamentals of expenditure  which can enable them to return to profit indicators sufficient to increase the profitability of capital.

Opportunities to implement banking blockchain

Banks are facing a new perspective of migrating the main operating and financial systems as well as risk assessment systems to the new data-sharing platform at the block chain base. This will enable them to seriously simplify processes by abandoning a large number of existing processes and elements of the information infrastructure.

The distribution of databases based on the blockchain technology provides a lot of unique opportunities for financial institutions:

  • Storing accurate and reliable information about all transactions that have ever been committed allows anyone not only to store money, but also to make money transactions completely transparent, without having to trust each other or any centralized intermediary;
  • Use of advanced encryption technologies is particularly relevant to the payment industry, as a tool for ensuring reliability, improving quality, cheaper and speeding transactions, including the improvement of the online trading infrastructure ;
  • Ability to create corporate distributed databases that focus on the needs of each individual organization which will be able to interact with the distributed databases of other companies, providing the necessary level of security and confidentiality;
  • Block chain as the engine for transmissions of transaction data will ensure real-time monitoring and action when necessa...

New 16 THS DragonMint 16T Bitcoin ASIC Miner Coming in 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

If you think that BitMain has too much control over the Bitcion ASICs out there being one of the main manufacturers on that particular market then you might be happy to learn that there is a new alternative coming next year. There are of course the Canaan Avalon miners and the Ebit E9 miners already available, though pretty much hard to get just like the Antminers from Bitmain lately. The just announced DragonMint 16T Bitcoin ASIC miner from a new company called Halong Mining is looking very promising. What makes this announcement interesting is the fact that one of the Bitcoin Core developers BtcDrak seems to be directly involved in the development of the miner and is involved with Halong Mining who developed it. According to the initial information the project has been started quite a while ago with a lot of people contributing and with a serious investment in order to be able to bring the much needed competition and innovation to the Bitcoin mining arena. The only possible problem here is that it might still be hard to acquire for some small miners and users willing to get just a single ASIC miner to play around with once it becomes available, especially if demand from large scale mining operations is as high as it is with Bitmains products.

The DragonMint 16T is supposedly the worlds most efficient Bitcoin miner, running faster and cooler than any competing miners currently available. It is based on the DM8575 ASIC chips that run at 85 GHS per chip with power efficiency of around 0.075 J/GHS according to the developers. If you are wondering what is the catch here, well the new miner is not yet available for sale, it is expected to start shipping in March 2018 or in about 4 months from now. You can however already pre-order the device with a minimum order quantity and a regular price tag of $1595 USD (with first day promo at $1350 USD per device). That price does not include a power supply, just the miner, but you can also add a 1600W PSU for $125 USD ($115 USD on promo), though again this is a pre-order. As with all other pre-orders and promises fo...

CasinoCoin Announces Coin Swap "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Swap to Ripple-based blockchain will position cryptocurrency for further growth

22 November 2017 (Isle of Man) CasinoCoin (CSC), the open source, peer-to-peer cryptocurrency designed specifically for the regulated online gambling industry, has announced it will initiate a coin swap to move to a new Ripple-based blockchain, bringing a host of advantages for users and operators.

There are several reasons behind the move to the new CasinoCoin blockchain. Liquidity of the coin will be increased from 40 million to 40 billion, a total coin supply more in line with the scale of the global iGaming industry, which H2 Gambling Capital estimates will be worth 54 billion in gross win by 2020*.

Additionally, the new CasinoCoin blockchain infrastructure is more advanced, and features added functionality including faster transaction times, with capability of up to 1,000 processed per second.

The coin swap will start at midday GMT on November 25, 2017 and will be open for 80 days. Holders of CasinoCoin will be able to initiate the coin swap within the new CasinoCoin wallet.

Current CasinoCoin holders will receive 1,000 coins on the new blockchain for every one coin sent from the old blockchain. The process will be managed manually to ensure optimal security checks on all transactions, and the coin swap will close at midday GMT on February 14, 2018.

The coin swap process will be executed with full transparency. All CasinoCoin that are swapped will have their transaction IDs displayed on a web page to prove those coins were swapped during the process.

The coins Foundation, which advocates for the growth of CasinoCoin and cryptocurrency in the regulated gambling industry, will use any balance of coins not swapped onto the new blockchain, by midday GMT on February 14, 2018, to support continued operations, marketing, and development.

The new CasinoCoin blockchain will continue with the ticker CSC and retain the current CasinoCoin name and branding. The original blockchain will be rebranded CasinoCoin Classic (CCC), with no new development or support from the Foundation after February 14, 2018.

For full details on how to proceed with the coin swap, please visit: https://casinocoin.org/coinswap/. The CasinoCoin team will also be answering questions on Reddit and Discord.

John Caldwell, Director of Advocacy for the Foundation, said: This coin swap will move CasinoCoin to a new blockchain that will bet...

Professional Traders Disrupting the Investment Management Industry Covesting Opens Their Crowdsale. "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Covesting is a peer-2-peer digital asset management platform combined with the most complete infrastructure for investors and cryptocurrency traders. The platform is being built by ex-Saxo bankers and allows any investor to copy the trades in real time of professional cryptocurrency traders, while keeping their funds safely in their own accounts. Traders can start a career as fund managers by proving their performance, which is tracked transparently, directly on the Covesting platform. Traders can trade from many of their favorite crypto exchanges and will not have to change their current trading habits.

Covestings launches a public crowdsale, after successfully completing their Pre-ICO stage on November 19th, raising over $1,1 million dollars and exceeding their goal in just two weeks. The Pre-ICO period which lasted roughly one month, had over 1,700 participants and brought in over 3,000ETH, adequately funding the company through its platform development phase.

Covesting will also feature the Crypto Intelligence Portal, encompassing a complete knowledge base of all cryptocurrency related information from a carefully selected group of unbiased sources, as well as market analysis, forums, and discussion based around trading.

Almost a week ago, Covesting has announced that it has officially incorporated in Gibraltar, a move that should help the fintech startup flourish in a nation with friendly regulations in both the financial and technology industries. Such move is incredibly important for distributed ledger based technology companies because Gibraltar is one of the few places that has officially enacted regulation around what is permitted. Gibraltars Financial Services Commission ratified laws pertaining to all distributed ledger based companies to go into effect Jan 1st, 2018

The ICO opens on November 24th at 13:00 GMT time, and will run for one month until December 24th. The initial rate is 200 COV per 1 ETH in the public ICO, but scales down as more ETH are contributed, and eventually will lower to 130 COV per 1 ETH. Investors are encouraged to participate early as the rate drops after just the first 5,000 ETH is contributed.

Bulls Getting Bullish: Novogratz and Lee Up Their Price Predictions "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Notable cryptocurrency bulls Mike Novogratz and Thomas Lee have once again upped their price predictions for Bitcoin. On Tuesday, Novogratz, the main man at Galaxy Investment Partners and former head of Fortress Investment told Bloomberg that he envisions a $10,000 Bitcoin before the end of the year. This was followed today by Fundstrats Tomas Lee doubling his price target for mid-2018 to what now seems an almost reserved $11,500.

However, its not just Bitcoin that Novogratz is bullish on. He also sees smart-contract blockchain platform Ethereum as increasing in value too. For him, a $500 ETH token is likely before the years end. That would mean an increase of 20% for Bitcoin, and 36% for Ethereum with just over a month and a week remaining in 2017.

Novogratz sees the ever-growing market interest as the product of Bitcoins attributes. He also cites a growing distrust amongst the public towards the powers that be and institutions such as central banks. The experienced money manager is reported to have said:

Bitcoin is built on an amazing technology. Theres a limited supply of it, people are trusting it. Remember, this whole revolution came out of a breakdown in trust, it came out of the 08 financial crisis where people say, We no longer trust financial institutions, we no longer trust governments.

Just the day after Novogratz upped his prediction for the year, long-time Bitcoin bull Thomas Lee also doubled his price target for mid-2018. If the price were to move in line with Lees prediction of $11,500, it would represent a gain of over 40% from the time of writing.

In a report to his clients, he wrote that the November slump that had been caused by the rejection of Segwit2x had cleaned up weak hands. He had previously warned that the speed at which Bitcoin had shot from $3,500 to $7,000 was reason for investors to exercise caution, and that such a pullback was to be expected. However, with that out of the way, the Fundstat researcher concluded:

We no longer feel caution is warranted.

According to data revealed by Theta Labs, one of the companies covered below, the video content and streaming market accounts for 67 percent of current internet traffic and could reach 82 percent by 2020. The new players promise to decentralize global video streaming, while at the same time making it more efficient.

LBRY

According to Jeremy Kauffman, co-founder and CEO of the blockchain-based content distribution platform LBRY, blockchain technology could transform the monetization of online content by altering the way that creators get paid, and eventually challenge YouTube.

The LBRY protocol allows creators to publish online, making their content discoverable with a small payment in LBRYs own cryptocurrency token. Viewers pay creators in LBRY tokens to see their work.

[Blockchain technology] allows us to build technology thats owned by the users rather than any one party, Kauffman said. Thats the problem that blockchain [technology] solves.

Kauffman explained that under the LBRY model, creators are paid without an intermediary taking an inappropriately large cut. Since LBRY is a protocol, the company cant control what gets discovered.

Kauffman said that LBRY recruited 4,000 YouTubers in specifically targeted demographics, several of which have 500,000 or more subscribers, which seems a good first step toward challenging YouTube in its own tu...

Bitcoin Price Watch; Heres Whats On Tonight "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

We are about to close out the session in Europe for the evening and things are about to close down in the US for the Thanksgiving holidays. While well likely see some degree of a dip in volume on the back of the holidays in question, this doesnt mean well get no volatility in the bitcoin price (indeed, a dip in volume might even make things a little choppier than normal based on the fact that liquidity has thinned out).

As such, we are going to make sure we are ready for whatever plays out and that weve got some solid levels in place that we can use to take advantage of any action in the bitcoin price, as and when it hits the ticker.

So, with this noted, lets get our key levels in place for the session going forward. As ever, take a quick look at the chart below before we get started so as to get an idea where things stand and where we are hoping to get in and out as and when things move. Its a one-minute candlestick chart and its got our primary range overlaid in green.

As the chart shows, the range we have in place for the session this evening comes in as defined by support to the downside at 8158 and resistance to the upside at 8190. We are going to look at jumping into a long position if we get a close above resistance, as part of which well target 8245. A stop on the trade at 8176 looks good.

Looking the other way, well try and get in short if we see price break, and close, below support. On this one, well target a downside TP somewhere in the region of 8115 and well place a stop at 8170 to narrow our risk exposure.

Lets see how things play out.

Bitcoin Exchange Globitex Granted European Electronic Money License "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Globitex.jpg

Globitex, a new bitcoin exchange co-founded by former Bitcoin Foundation Executive Director Jon Matonis, is announcing that its parent Globitex Holding (Latvia) group company NexPay UAB has been granted an Electronic Money Institution (EMI) license by the Bank of Lithuania, a regulatory authority in the European Union, to carry out payment services and e-money issuance in the EU.

The acquisition of the EMI license will allow Globitex to integrate with the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA) euro payment system directly through the central bank of Lithuania. This will enable NexPay to clear euro payments directly, without the involvement of commercial banks, and to issue IBAN accounts to Globitex clients just as banks issue accounts to their clients, which is could be an important step forward in terms of accessibility.

According to the company, this regulatory development opens the way for the institutional- grade bitcoin exchange to deal with EUR fiat payments globally and sets a new level of legitimacy for the cryptocurrency industry overall. It also represents a significant step toward widespread adoption of Bitcoin as a unit of account suitable for global trade, with no geographic, political or monetary restrictions.

Eventually, Globitex wants to allow producers to purchase exchange-listed products for bitcoin, and trading firms, and speculators to hedge their risks in bitcoin with derivatives trading.

Globitex is looking to set new cryptocurrency trading standards not only technologically, or by commodities linked product offering, but especially in Globitexs legal setup, ensuring safe passage to the digital age, said Liza Aizupiete, Managing Director of Globitex, who recently participated in a panel discussion on the future of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies at...

This Bitcoin Developer Is About to Take on the Mining Hardware Industry "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

DragonMint

BtcDrak, the most active pseudonymous Bitcoin Core contributor to date, is making a move into the mining hardware industry. The developer, who besides having contributed to the Bitcoin Core repository also maintains bitcoincore.org and the Bitcoin Core Community Slack, told Bitcoin Magazine he helped set up ASIC chip manufacturing company Halong Mining over the past year, and produced an initial batch of mining hardware, with plans to ship to consumers in early 2018.

We started a mining project with the aim to bring much needed competition to the market, BtcDrak said. We want to make SHA256 great again.

The Miners

As listed on the company website, Halong Mining is launching a product line that consists of one machine for now: the DragonMint 16T. The miner its name references the Dragons' Den, an (in)famous private chat channel on the Bitcoin Core Community Slack is said to be equipped with newly designed chips and can produce a total of 16 terahashes per second. Importantly, BtcDrak claims that the machines are about 30 percent more energy efficient than the most efficient ASIC miner on the market right now, Bitmains AntMiner S9.

The DragonMint will be the most advanced miner to date, he said.

The main bottleneck to entering the ASIC market is typically capital: developing specialized chips from scratch is expensive. While BtcDrak preferred not to disclose much information about Halong Mining for now, he did note that the machines have been produced by a team with serious expertise....

Goodbye Bugs? How Formal Verification Could Fortify Smart Contracts "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

gpfromalverifi.jpg

As a way to eliminate bugs in high-risk code, a style of software programming known as formal verification is making its way into the blockchain world.

Put simply, formal verification uses math to specify and analyze a program for errors in logic. However, because of the time and cost involved, formal verification is best reserved for situations where human life or large sums of money are at stake.

Currently, formal verification is used to verify the correctness of high-risk code in transportation, the military and cryptography. Chip companies use it to fortify algorithms before embedding them in silicon. And banks use it to develop financial algorithms.

Applied to blockchain technology, formal verification could provide assurances that self-executing transactions known as smart contracts will work as intended, eliminating some of the bugs and financial losses that come as a result of coding errors.

This year alone, bugs in Ethereums Parity wallet accounted for $180 million in losses. Last year, a bug in a virtual organization known as The DAO enabled a hacker to siphon $50 million from the Ethereum smart contract.  

Platforms like Cardano and Tezos are already working on smart contract languages specifically designed to facilitate formal verification. Ethereum is also working on bringing formal verification to its smart contracts.

But what is formal verification? How does it work? And why is software so difficult to get right in the first place?

Chicago Board Options Exchange Announces Bitcoin Futures Products "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Bitcoin futures are one of the bigger markets in the world of finance right now. Various financial institutions look to provide exposure to such services in the future. The Chicago Board Options Exchange is one of the latest ones to do so. Their new Bitcoin derivative contract specifications have been unveiled a few days ago. The product itself is not available yet, but it should come to market in a few weeks.

More and more companies focus on Bitcoin-related investment opportunities these days. That is only normal, as investors want access to profitable vehicles. Right now, cryptocurrencies make all other assets bite the dust in quick succession. Especially Bitcoin is on a lot of peoples radar right now. Gaining exposure to such assets without buying Bitcoin itself is not easy. The Chicago Board Options Exchange acknowledges there is a genuine demand for this vehicle. This is why they will launch their derivative contracts in a few weeks from today.

Chicago Board Options Exchange has Bold Plans

We have seen an increased interest from financial institutions when it comes to Bitcoin futures. A lot of people have different opinions on the value of BTC right now. Being able to go short or long is pretty significant. Considering how the Chicago Board Options Exchange is the biggest options exchange in the US, their support can be invaluable. Right now, the tentative launch date of Bitcoin futures products is somewhere in Q4 of 2017. That means somewhere between now and around six weeks from today.

Surprisingly, this product will use the XBT ticker. It is the same ticker Kraken uses for Bitcoin on their exchange. In a way, XBT should have always been the ticket for Bitcoin h the world of finance. It is not an illogical abbreviation, that much is evident. There will be many different types of contracts provided by the Chicago Board Options Exchange in the future. It is evident they want to get a major market share in quick successions. Only time will tell if that is even possible, though. There is some stiff competition in the world of Bitcoin futures and derivatives right now.

The big question is how these contracts will relate to spot Bitcoin pricing. So far, the...

ViaBTC Launches Gift-based Incentives for Bitcoin Miners "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Mining pools are always looking to attract more miners. That is much easier than done, though. ViaBTC has come up with a new plan to do exactly that. Their new holiday incentive is pretty interesting to take a look at. Anyone who continuously mines for 30 days will be eligible for a prize. Some of these rewards are pretty big, even though most users wont have the necessary hashrate whatsoever.

It is evident the big miners will benefit the most from this new ViaBTC campaign. Anyone who contributes less than 1 petahash per second will not receive anything, by the look of things. That is only to be expected, although this incentive was never designed for the everyday miner whatsoever. The users who can successfully contribute that amount or hashpower or even more will certainly get rewarded handsomely.

Massive Giveaway by ViaBTC

Rewards include Bluetooth speakers, an iPhone X, and Macbook laptops. Those who successfully contribute between 7 and 8 petahash will be eligible for the iPhone X giveaway. It seems these rewards will be issued free of charge and come on top of the regular mining rewards users receive. An interesting way of tying more miners to ViaBTC and Bitcoin Cash, that much is evident. It makes you wonder why we dont see more of these efforts in the first place.

This promotion begins on November 23rd and runs until December 25th. That means interested parties need to switch over their miners starting tomorrow. The hashpower needs to be provided continuously for 30 days or more. Users cant switch to different pools in the meantime. Moreover, the winners may not receive the actual goods, depending on supply issues and locations. Overseas miners will receive gift cards with the item value instead. That makes the whole ordeal a lot less appealing all of a sudden.

It will be interesting to see how this promotion plays out for ViaBTC. Users are welcome to mine either Bitcoin or Bitcoin Cash, as long as they provide the hashpower. This may lead to a spike in BCH hashrate over the next few weeks. At the same time, there is no indication anyone will join this giveaway unless they live in China, to begin with. People would love to get an iPhone X instead...

Bitcoin Price Watch; Heres Whats On This Morning "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

It is Wednesday morning and we are about to kick things off for a fresh session of trading in our bitcoin price efforts. Readers that caught our analysis last night will know that we went into the US afternoon hoping for some sustained momentum entries that is, a break and a close above some key target levels followed by a run in the direction of our entry, ideally taking out our take profit target for a clean position exit.

We got pretty much exactly what we were looking for, although things were a little bit choppier wed hoped initially.

As we head into the session today, we would love to see much of the same: Clean entries, clean exits, quick trading.

So, lets get some levels in place that we can use to jump in and out of the markets if things move favorably. As ever, take a quick look at the chart below before we get started so as to get an idea where things stand and where we will look to enter and exit our positions if and when things move.

The chart is a one-minute candlestick chart has our key range overlaid in green.

bitcoin price

As illustrated, the range we are looking at for the session this morning is relatively similar to the one we used during the session late last night. That is, we have support to the downside at 8250 and resistance to the upside just a little lower than last nights key level at 8309.

If we see price close above resistance, we will jump into a long entry towards an immediate upside target of 8360. A stop loss at 8290 works well to define risk on the position.

Looking the other way, a close below support will have us in short towards a downside target of 8200 flat.

Lets see how things play out.

Bitfinex Launches EUR Trading and Allegedly Re-opens USD Wires "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

A lot of things have happened in the Bitcoin world this year. Bitfinex has suddenly become the largest Bitcoin exchange by trading volume. Moreover, they left the US market, which was a pretty remarkable decision.It now seems the company has introduced a new Euro trading market for Bitcoin. That is a positive sign, although it remains to be seen if USD wires will be re-opened as well.

The plot thickens when it comes to the Bitfinex exchange. More specifically, their addition of EUR trading is rather remarkable. Considering how Europe is a very quiet market for cryptocurrencies, this new addition may kickstart things. So far, Kraken and Bitstamp are the two biggest exchanges when it comes to Euro trading. Neither of these companies sees any spectacular volume, though. More competition is direly needed and Bitfinex aims to provide it. It will be an interesting venture to keep an eye on over the next few months.

Bitfinex Expands to Europe

It is unclear if this EUR option will come to other markets as well. More specifically, we need EUR markets for other major currencies as well. For now, it will only be related to Bitcoin, but things are always subject to change when it comes to exchanges. This also allows the company to once again accept real money from users directly after they shut down their USD wires not too long ago. How this will play out given all of the recent Tether issues, remains to be determined.

Speaking of USD wires, rumor has it Bitfinex may resume that service pretty soon. It is unclear if this is actually the plan, though. Theres a fair amount of wishful thinking when it comes to Bitfinex and fiat currency trading. People would love to see an option to get their US Dollars out of the exchange once again. For now, there is still no direct method of doing that. Rest assured people will try to stress test this new withdrawal option in the coming days, though.

All of this goes to show Bitfinex will not go away anytime soon. At the same time, there are still a lot of concerns over this platform right now. Liquidity remains a pressing matter, although it seems everything adds up so far. The Tether...

AFTER DROPPING FROM $45 NEO BEARS SHOULD WATCH $34 SUPPORT "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

After lower lows, NEO bears seem to be finding resistance at $34. Nevertheless, given that obvious bounce from $45, NEO looks likely to consolidate within a $20 range especially if there is a break below $34 today.

Lets look at the charts:

BEAR PRESSURE IN 4 HR CHART BUT NEM BULLS STILL IN CHARGE

alt coin NEM Daily chart NEMUSD Daily Chart for November 22, 2017

If you are trading this pair, you only have to look at the behavior of the stochastics. It is almost mixed and zig zagging indicating how price movement in lower time frames look like.

All in all, the NEM bulls look to be in charge now that yesterday closed with a long upper wick. In the 4hr chart there is some sell pressure.

However, if NEM prices manage to stay afloat and fail to close below $0.198 then bulls are strongly in charge and a push above the main resistance trend line is likely to happen.

DASH WHIPSAWS

That was how volatile DASH was yesterday. In the 4HR chart, the main support trend line which has been DASH spring board from November 6 prevented prices from dipping further as you can see in the chart....

ETH/USD and ETH/BTC Technical Analysis November 22 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Hello and welcome to News BTCs Market Outlook November.

ETH/USD

ethusd

Ethereum continues to grind to the upside, reaching the $380 level during the day on Tuesday. This market continues to find buyers near the 20 SMA on the 4 hour chart, suggesting that there should be dynamic support near the $355 level, and the pullbacks offer buying opportunities that we can take advantage of. A break above the $400 level is probably coming longer-term, but expects significant psychological resistance initially when we get to it.

ETH/BTC

ethbtc

This market is essentially dead money currently, as both currencies are finding strength. However, longer-term I believe that this market will probably dip, perhaps reaching down to the 0.042 level. Rallies will have to deal with a massive amount of resistance at the 0.048 level.

Bitcoin Gold Price Technical Analysis BTG/USD to Continue Higher "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Points

  • Bitcoin gold price recently gained momentum and moved above the $200 handle against the US Dollar.
  • This is a short-term contracting triangle forming with support near $240 on the hourly chart of BTG/USD (data feed from Bitfinex).
  • There can be a downside break, but the price remains supported above $230-220.

Bitcoin gold price is currently in a nice uptrend against the US Dollar. BTG/USD might retest $220 but remains positioned for more gains in the near term.

Bitcoin Gold Price Resistance

After forming a low near $150, bitcoin gold price traded sharply higher against the US Dollar. The price was able to move above the $200 handle and is currently trading well above the 100 hourly simple moving average. It traded as high as $260 recently from where a minor correction wave was initiated. The pair is currently just below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $204.00 low to $259.84 high.

It seems like there is a short-term contracting triangle forming with support near $240 on the hourly chart of BTG/USD. The pair might decline a few more points toward $230 or even $220 in the short term. However, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $204.00 low to $259.84 high is likely to act as a support and prevent declines. Only a close below $220 would call for a retest of $200 in the near term.

Bitcoin Gold Price Technical Analysis BTG USD

On the upside, the triangle resistance is near $259. A break above the $259 and $260 levels are needed for a push towards $280. Above the mentioned $280, the price could even test the $300 handle.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD The MACD for BTG/USD is currently in the bearish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for BTG/USD is currently moving lower toward the 55 level.

Major Support Level $230

Major Resistance Level $260

DASH/USD and LTC/USD Technical Analysis November 22 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Hello and welcome to News BTCs Market Outlook November.

DASH/USD

dashusd

DASH continues to rocket to the upside, as we have fulfilled the move by Headley now several days ago. By breaking the top of the descending triangle, we have now reached the top of that triangle, and even broke above it. The $500 level of course is offering a significant amount of psychological resistance, so I prefer to buy short-term dips that show signs of support, especially near the $480 handle.

LTC/USD

ltcusd

Litecoin fell rather significantly overnight, but found enough support at $68 to turn around and rally towards the $72 handle. Because of this, the market looks likely to go much higher, and a break above the $73 level should send Litecoin towards the $75 level next. $68 looks massively supportive.

BTC/USD and BTC/JPY Technical Analysis November 22 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Hello and welcome to News BTCs Market Outlook November.

BTC/USD

btcusd

Bitcoin remains volatile, as we have cleared the 8200 level now. It looks as if we are going to continue to find a buy on the dips mentality, and therefore selling is all but impossible to do at this point, as Bitcoin seems hell-bent on going to the $10,000 level. Overall, there should be a hard floor at the $7800 level now.

BTC/JPY

 

btcjpy

Bitcoin fell rather sharply against the Japanese yen initially during the trading session, but found enough support near the 900,000 level to bounce significantly and go looking towards the highs again. At this point, I suspect that its a given that we are going to go looking towards the 1 million level. There is a massive psychological significance to that level, so dont be surprised if we pull back once we reach it.

Thinks for watching, Ill be back tomorrow.

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis ETH/USD Holding Key Support "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Highlights

  • ETH price failed to move above the $370 resistance against the US Dollar and started a downside move.
  • There is a key bullish trend line forming with support at $355 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via SimpleFX).
  • The price remains supported above $355 and the 100 hourly simple moving average for more gains.

Ethereum price is supported on the downside against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD must stay above $350 in order to make another upside move.

Ethereum Price Resistance

There was a significant struggle around $270 in ETH price against the US Dollar. The price failed to move above the stated $270 resistance on many occasions. Recently, it declined and traded below the $360 level. However, the downside move was protected by a key bullish trend line forming with support at $355 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair is holding the trend line support and is currently above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $370.43 high to $356.28 low.

On the downside, the trend line support is important near $355. Below the mentioned $355, the next crucial support is near the 100 hourly simple moving average around $352. Only a close below $350 and the 100 hourly simple moving average would call for more declines in the short term. On the upside, the next resistance is around the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $370.43 high to $356.28 low at $363.

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis ETH USD

However, the most important resistance is near $370. A close above $370 is must if ETH has to remain in the bullish zone. Once there is a break and close above $370, the price could easily move towards the $380 and $390 levels.

Hourly MACD The MACD is slightly in the bearish zone.

Hourly RSI The RSI is currently just below the 50 level.

Major Support Level $350

Major Resistance Level $370

Bitcoin Cash Price Technical Analysis Can BCH/USD Break 100 SMA? "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Points

  • Bitcoin cash price is in a correction mode and holding the $1100 support against the US Dollar.
  • There is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $1200 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD (data feed from Kraken).
  • The price has to move above $1200 and the 100 hourly simple moving average to gain traction.

Bitcoin cash price is holding an important support near $1100 against the US Dollar. BCH/USD needs to move past $1200 and 100 hourly SMA for further gains.

Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance

It seems like there is a consolidating phase forming in bitcoin cash price above $1100 against the US Dollar. The price recently moved below the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last leg up from the $838 low to $1380 high. Earlier, the price was able to hold the 100 hourly simple moving average and $1200 support. Later, the price moved below the $1200 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Both are now acting as a resistance and preventing further gains.

There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $1200 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD. The pair needs to break the trend line, $1200 resistance and the 100 hourly SMA to gain traction. On the downside, the most important support is near $1100. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg up from the $838 low to $1380 high is also around $1100.

Bitcoin Cash Price Technical Analysis BCH USD

Therefore, the price remains in a range of $1100-1200. A break above $1200 is needed for more gains. On the other hand, the $1100 level is a crucial support and must hold declines in the near term.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD The MACD for BCH/USD is almost flat in the bullish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for BCH/USD is currently moving higher and is above the 50 level.

Major Support Level $1100

AdEx partners with INK to bring blockchain into the advertising space "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The Ad space is about to get a major boost. AdEx is championing this cause by leveraging the blockchain technology and smart contracts. As one of the most innovative and largest decentralized ad platform, AdEx will bring transparency in the interactions between ad agencies and the entire ad industry.

In collaboration with some names in the blockchain and smart contract ecosystem, AdEx is coming our way with a new auction that is geared towards the ad space on boarding passes. This makes AdEx the first ever ad company utilizing the blockchain technology to make an impact on an entire economy.

The auction

AdExs auction will feature a first one, which will see the sale of over 2 million ad spaces using boarding tickets. AdEx is in charge of the entire bidding process, whiles its partner INK will be in charge of the winning bids. This is a step towards using the blockchain and smart contracts to provide better services and more future opportunities for not just the advertising space, but also for the travel media industry.

This is an auction that will change the ad industry and will, therefore, see companies like Propy and eToro joining to compete for ad space. The entire details, as well as the results of the auction, are expected to be fully disclosed a week after the auction.

The AdEx Partners

Since the blockchain and smart contract sphere is still developing, there is the need for concerted efforts from many blockchain-based companies to achieve a bigger goal and AdEx knows how to play the game. Working closely with AdEx is Ink, the travel media industry leader that provides unparalleled media products and services to millions of their global clientele, who are entirely airline passengers. Apart from other media services, Ink equally provides a magazine, mobile and online experiences, among other things.

Apart from this partnership with Ink, AdEx is also in partnership with other big names in the blockchain and smart contract ecosystem, as well as those in the advertising market. Projects and companies like Wings, Fintech Blockchain Group, and NEO are all part of the big goals that run AdEx. These partnerships have seen an increase in the ADX, AdExs native token, which has moved up from $0.2 to $0.35 in a few days.

Zen Protocols Mission for Decentralized Finance "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Zen Thumb New

In Eastern traditions, Zen is often defined as a total state of focus, a merging together of body and mind. It involves dropping illusions and seeing things as they are in the present moment.

Based in Tel Aviv, Zen Protocol recognizes that starting in the here and now is vital to innovation and progress. Its mission? To create a platform that allows anyone in the world find and use financial products in a highly secure manner.

Zen Protocols eclectic team of developers and crypto veterans aims to assist Bitcoin in sustaining its dominance while allowing it to capitalize on advancements that boost adoption. In pursuing this quest, the company has made liberal use of beta testers a move that runs counter to the prevailing approach in much of the world of blockchain technology, where projects all too often hastily toss up a website and white paper before demonstrating a viable product.

At Zen, 2017 has been about erecting a new blockchain to fuel a marketplace that allows bitcoin holders to issue, trade and invest in stock options, futures, digital currencies, exchange-traded funds, exotic derivatives, contracts for difference and other financial instruments.

This project is predicated on the Zen blockchain functioning in parallel with Bitcoin in what is typically known as a sidechain. This opens up a bevy of opportunities for Zen to curate its platform, independent of any changes to the Bitcoin protocol while simultaneously being able to integrate its own set of modifications to fuel its innovative process.

The primary value proposition of the platform involves the facilitation of complex financial agreements through the use of smart contracts. This can be seen as a major breakthrough given that Bitcoin doesnt natively support smart contracts a major reason why the majority of blockchain app projects are launching on Ethereum instead.

Through the creation of this sidechain-style model, Zen is able to pay Bitcoin miners for executing contracts without creating a competitive scenario with Bitcoin for computational resources. Zen, therefore, sees itself as a complementary solution for Bitcoin which helps it scale and offload some of the transactional demand from the Bitcoin chain, which often struggles with high transaction costs and sluggish transactions.

A Viable Alternative to Ethereum? 

Through the strategic execution of its ambitious roadmap, Zen aims to usher in a new era for smart contracts using the Bitcoin blockchain a space where Ethereum has, to date, shown a d...

Hacker Allegedly Siphons $31 Million Out of Tether, Driving Further Speculations About the Cryptocurrency "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Hacker Allegedly Siphons $31 Million Out of Tether, Driving Further Speculations About the Cryptocurrency

Tether, a cryptocurrency pegged 1-to-1 to the U.S. dollar, was allegedly hacked this week to the tune of $31 million.

Tether functions to convert U.S. dollars to a type of cryptocurrency. The projects token (USDT) is pegged to the dollar and is used in exchange trading. The idea behind Tether is that instead of having to sell your bitcoin or other token for a fiat currency, you can convert it to USDT, and either hold it in USDT or else transfer your USDT to another exchange and use it to purchase tokens there.

As for the exchanges, USDT allows them to trade in something akin to dollars, without requiring them to have a bank account.

Tether operates on the Omni Layer Protocol, which itself operates on top of the Bitcoin network, and uses Bitcoin addresses. According to a blog post on the projects website, $31 million worth of USDT was sent to an unauthorized Bitcoin address on November 19, 2017.

We strongly urge all Tether integrators to install this software immediately to prevent the coins from entering the ecosystem, Tether wrote, adding that any tokens from the attackers addresses will not be redeemed.

Some exchanges, like Kraken, have stopped trading USDT temporarily while they upgrade to the newer software.

Gold Spikes As Dollar Crash Looms - If You're Not Protected What Are You Waiting For? "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The crash of the dollar is not a matter of if, but a matter of when. In the face of these troubling times many people are wisely diversifying their portfolios but what are the best ways that one can ensure an outcome that will result in guaranteed gains? I mean we all understand it buy low, sell high. But its easier said than done. What if you buy low and then it goes lower? What if you buy low and it never goes back up? And what is it exactly? Food? Stocks? Bitcoin? Bonds? Gold? Silver? With gold and silver, you cant really lose, its been money for thousands of years. Of course, mining the precious metal doesnt always make sense. When it costs more to mine than the end-product is currently worth, theres no financial incentive. Which makes Keith Neumeyers story ideal for people looking to buy low and sell high. In this video Dan Dicks of Press For Truth speaks with Keith Neumeyer of First Mining Finance about the importance of holding gold and silver as a store of value and how one can secure these assets at the lowest possible prices as Keith has done time and time again leaving behind him a perfect track record of buying precious metals at the most opportune time.

The calendars for Mick Mulvaney, the former South Carolina congressman who now runs the White House Office of Management and Budget, offer a glimpse of who has access to the highest levels of the Trump administration.

Among those visiting Mulvaney: Trump friend and casino magnate Steve Wynn; a flurry of officials from the conservative Heritage Foundation; a string of health care and Wall Street CEOs; lobbyists for Koch Industries; a cryptocurrency evangelist; and a prominent member of the Catholic group Opus Dei.

The Trump administration fought in court to block public records requests by Property of the People, a Washington-based nonprofit transparency group, to release the calendars as well as visitor logs from several other White House offices. Lawyers for the group ultimately prevailed and provided the documents to ProPublica, which we are posting in a searchable format.

As OMB director, Mulvaney is the driving force behind the presidents budget and influences regulations and government procurement. Its been widely reported that he will become the acting head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. He also has the ear of the president, who is reportedly a fan of Mulvaneys performances on the Sunday political shows. The calendars, which cover February to September, typically dont include details on what was discussed at the meetings. In some cases, the timing of contact with Mulvaney line up with OMB business.

Mulvaney appeared on Meet the Press on Oct. 8. The president reportedly thinks Mulvaney does a good...

The Triumph of Cryptocurrency "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The Triumph of Cryptocurrency

The End of Banking as We Know It!
Dear Reader,

Last month, we shared a letter by Christine Lagarde, head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), where she acknowledged that cryptocurrency could potentially eliminate the need for central banks and government-issued currency.

Its a remarkable statement coming from someone in her position, and its something we couldnt agree more with.

The blockchain itself is going to be implemented throughout the world, much like the personal computer in the 1980s/1990s and the Internet in the mid-1990s.

What seems like a small movement now will see a tipping point over the next 3 years.

The Department of Defense, Homeland Security, and some of the largest corporations on the planet are already beginning to use and upgrade their communications systems to blockchain technology.

Here are some key statements from Christine Lagarde:

Why might citizens hold virtual currencies rather than physical dollars, euros, or sterling? Because it may one day be easier and safer than obtaining paper bills, especially in remote regions. And because virtual currencies could actually become more stable.

Consider the growing demand for new payment services in countries where the shared, decentralized service economy is taking off. This is an economy rooted in peer-to-peer transactions, in frequent, small-value payments, often across borders.

She went on to note the high cost of banking and credit card fees for small transactions that cross borders, saying that these high fees would make cryptocurrencies more preferable.

Citizens may one day prefer virtual currencies, since they potentially offer the same cost and convenience as cash no settlement risk, no clearing delays, no central registration, no intermediary to check accounts and identities.

And lastly, she summed up the future perfectly in this statement:

Virtual currencies are in a differ...

Bitcoin Price Watch; Buying The Dip "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

We are now approaching the end of the European session in our bitcoin price trading efforts and its time to take a look at how action during the day today has played out as compares to the framework we put in place this morning and, in turn, to try and alter said framework in an attempt to draw advantage from any further volatility we get this evening. We are going to jump right into the action today, so take a quick look at the chart below before we get started so as to get an idea whats on right now and where things stand in the bitcoin price.

Its worth noting quickly that the Tether hack has translated to some temporarily weakened sentiment and this could in turn translate to some volatility in the space. Longer-term, we dont expect it to have any real impact, but weve got to keep it in mind right now.

So, with that said, lets get the detail.

The chart is a one-minute candlestick chart and it has our key range overlaid in green.

As the chart shows, the range were looking at for the session this evening comes in as defined by support to the downside at 8250 and resistance to the upside at 8317. This is a relatively tight range, so we will stick to our breakout strategy for the time being. If this changes, we will update later on.

Looking at our strategy, then, if we see price break above resistance, we will watch out for a close above that level to validate an upside target of 8375. A stop loss on the trade somewhere in the region of 8300 will limit risk nicely.

Looking the other way, if we see a close below support, we will jump in short towards a downside target of 8200. A stop loss on this one at 8265 looks good.
