GoldMint and the Future of Gold Ownership "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

GoldMint Header

Reflecting golds historical repute as a scarce and valued resource, Bitcoin has become known in many investment circles as digital gold. With its unprecedented rise, Bitcoins worth is now estimated to be about twice that of an ounce of physical gold.

On August 7, 2017, the startup GoldMint was launched with the intent of ushering in a new digital era of gold as a store of value. This project aims to provide a unique set of gold ownership solutions for cryptocurrency investors and enthusiasts worldwide. It is holding an initial coin offering (ICO) that starts in less than 12 hours. 

The GoldMint project reaffirms the notion that physical gold is a respected method of payment and wealth preservation, all tied to its value and scarcity. Gold ownership, however, requires expensive security, safekeeping and insurance. GoldMints innovative approach seeks to address these inherent issues.

GoldMint purchases, sells and repurchases their native digital asset called

GOLD, which is 100 percent backed by physical gold. It features an Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) which can be utilized as a payment and investment tool for both companies and individuals in hedging risk.

Capitalizing off of the inherent advantages of its physical counterpart,

GOLD tokens offer a stable, transparent, non-volatile means of buffering ones crypto portfolio from wild market swings. Here, GoldMint is committed to ensuring that GOLD delivers consistent value through paper assets like ETFs and futures as well as through physical assets. Moreover, GOLD owners will be able to use their tokens to secure guarantees, loans and escrow services, all at a modest 5 percent purchase and 3 percent sale fee.

GoldMint will also deliver a utility token known as MNT to facilitate operations, implement smart contracts and incentivize block creation and transaction confirmation.

During the early stages of this project, MNT will be sold and distributed on the Ethereum blockchain. After the MNT distribution has taken place, Goldmint will launch its own Graphene -based Proof-of-Stake (PoS) blockchain that offers a safer, more productive and faster experience.

Minting the Blockchain

GoldMint utilizes a blockchain ledger to execute trad...

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Amid Continuing China Rumors, BTC Fails to Break Key Resistance "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

China BTC price.jpg

When it rains, it pours. Last week, news began to hit the crypto community that China was taking harsh measures to reign in their various cryptocurrency exchanges. Several exchanges closed down and others were given a deadline to properly cease trading operations. This news came hard on the heels of recent directives that banned ICOs in China, leading to dramatic drops in cryptocurreny prices across the board.

After this latest news settled, bitcoin managed to slightly rally before topping out around $4100. However, early this week, rumors began to circulate that executives associated with Chinese exchanges are being prohibited from leaving China. At the time of this article, BTC-USD is sitting just at $3900 and is showing signs of further pullback:

Figure_1 (8).JPGFigure 1: BTC-USD, 12-Hour Candles, GDAX, Macro Fibonacci Retracement Values

The figure above shows the whole, macro bull run from the $1700s. One important feature of the trend shown above is the 61% retracement down to the $2900s. The retracement down to such a low value shows that sell pressure is very strong in the current market and hints toward bullish exhaustion within the macro trend. Another key feature to note is the following:

Figure_2 (8).JPGFigure 2: BTC-USD, 2-Hour Candles, GDAX, Failed 100% Retracement

An important test of this rally was the 100% retracement of the bear run, post-China news. Sitting just below the 23% Fibonacci Retracement lies the bear run. The test of the 100% retracement is important because that resistance line marks a strong shift in market sentiment. A failure to break through those values shows that, even though there was a strong rally, the market is still bearish in nature and is likely to continue.

Figure 2 also shows several tests and rejections of the 2-Hour 200 EMA (Exponential Moving Average). The 200 EMA is a common tool used among traders to objectively view the state of the market compared to the prior trends. A trend existing below the 200 EMA is bearish in nature, and trends that show support on top of the 200 EMA are bullish in natu...

Uncertainty Dominates as China Continues to Clamp Down on Cryptocurrencies "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Uncertainty Dominates as China Clamps Down on Cryptocurrency

China is clamping down on cryptocurrency, that much is clear. But while the developing story dominates headlines, a notable trend is the lack of official information. Chinese officials seem to systematically decline requests for comments, local sources are willing to provide information on condition of anonymity only, while leaked documents remain unverified.

Despite this lack of clarity, heres whats known so far.

Effects on Trading

The most important thing we know for sure is that Chinese bitcoin exchanges will be closing down, or at least exiting China.

BTCC the oldest bitcoin exchange in the world was the first exchange to announce theyd be closing shop within the Asian country, by the end of this month. The exchange cited guidelines published by the Chinese central bank (the Peoples Bank of China; PBOC), which initially appeared to only affect ICOs, as its reason for closing down.

Other exchanges quickly followed BTCC's lead. ViaBTC and Yunbi both announced that theyd be ceasing operations by the end of this month. Huobi and OKCoin, the two other major Chinese exchanges, announced they would be shutting down too, though not until the end of October. And BitKan, a big over-the-counter (OTC) trading service rather than an order-book exchange, announced it would be shutting down as well.

While the cited guidelines initially did not seem to concern bitcoin, it is likely that Chinese officials have made it clear through separate channels that they do apply to the cryptocurrency. Bloomberg (among others) reports that exchange operators decided to close down after in-person meetings with PBOC officials, and the Wall Street Journal reports based on anonymous sources that the PBOC has prepared a set of draft instructions that would ban cryptocurrency trading altogether. These draft instructions have als...

Nancy Pelosi Run Off Stage at Press Conference, 1795 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

- Nobel Gold & Silver: Protect Your Money With Gold - Click Here- https://goo.gl/kx2yzW Or Call - 888-596-7916 Good morning, Im still reporting on: Nancy Pelosi Run Off Stage at Press Conference, 1795 Synopsis: Yesterday in San Francisco, Nancy Pelosi was shouted down by the very dreamers she was there to have a press conference about urging passage of the Dream Act to protect the children of illegals from deportation. About 60 so-called Dreamers mounted the stage shouting, All of us or none of us, and Democrats deport. The raucous group managed to shout down all attempts to proceed with the carefully orchestrated event. After an hour of noisy chanting and speech-making on the part of the Dreamers, Pelosi and two Democrat colleagues gave up and left the venue through a back door. This demonstrates yet another step in the decline of civility in the democratic process only this time, it is being used against Democrats, instead by them against supporters of President Trump. Democrats have been crushing these American political traditions for several years now and this is the end result. Now new socialists, yearning to get their young faces on the nightly news are angling to replace the old socialists and modeling their bad behavior. Unless Democrats take an about face and start moving back towards bi-partisan governance and treating, yes, even Trump supporters with respect, the bonds of comity that have bound the Republic together will only disintegrate at an ever-faster pace fracturing the nation. This is exactly what our enemies want. And, unfortunately, our enemies are now amongst us. Democrats need to heed the lessons of history - just as in the French Revolution when the Republic descends into thuggery, the thugs will come for the Democrats first.

N. Korean Nuke Tests Could Trigger Supervolcano, 1792 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

- Jeevy Computers: Move up to business-level cyber protection. https://www.jeevycomputers.com/pcs/ Good evening, Im still reporting on: N. Korean Nuke Tests Could Trigger Supervolcano, 1792 Synopsis: The last North Korean underground nuke test inside Mt. Mantap, set off worrisome deep-earth tremors that may signal the reawakening of nearby Mt. Paektu, historys most devastating supervolcano. Mt. Paektu last exploded in the year 946. Despite blowing off the top of the mountain and creating a huge lake Lake Chon 8 miles wide in its caldera, it still stands as North Koreas highest mountain at 9,000 feet, only about 30 miles to the northwest of the nuclear test site inside Mount Mantap. Despite North Koreas distrust of foreigners, especially scientists, an international committee has been allowed to take a look at the situation. According to one of the researchers, Dr. James Hammond, of the Univ. of London, the last eruption was the most devastating in history. Ashes showered much of Japan, 500 miles away. According to another member of this team, Dr. Stephen Grant, a seismologist at the Univ. of Austin says: The risk of a destructive eruption is very real. The team concluded that the 946 eruption of Mr. Paektu could have released more sulphur into the atmosphere than the 1815 eruption of Mt. Tambora in 1815 in Indonesia. That eruption caused what was known as the year without a summer because so much ash was hurtled into the upper atmosphere that global temperatures plummeted worldwide causing crop failures and famines worldwide. Even in the northern hemisphere, a high-altitude reddish fog reddened and dimmed the sunlight so that sunspots were visible to the naked eye. Such detailed records are not available from the last eruption of Mt. Peaktu a thousand years ago, but at least it was the second only to Mt. Tambora. Scientists have now created a Volcanic Explosivity Index, or VEI. Mt. Paektu and Mt. Tambora are the only two volcanic eruptions which merit a VEI of 7. To provide some scale, a more recent explosive volcano was also in the islands that today make up Indonesia Krakatoa in 1883 68 years after Mt. Tambora. It is now designated as a VEI-6 volcanic eruption, but lets look at the consequences.

FBI May Have Spied on POTUS Trump, 1794 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

- Life Change Tea: Rid Your Body From Toxins! https://www.GetTheTea.com Good morning, Im still reporting on: FBI May Have Spied on POTUS Trump, 1794 Synopsis: CNN and Fox News are both reporting that the FBI was surveilling Trump campaign manager, Paul Manafort under secret orders of the FISA court during times which may have included Manaforts discussions with President Trump. The FISA court gave the Obama Justice Dept. permission to listen in on Manafort on two occasions. The second time a warrant was issued was based on the faked intelligence report written by the Russians that attempted to smear President Trump. That warrant was still in effect after Trumps inauguration and may have recorded conversations between Manafort and the President. The electronic surveillance continued until lawyers for the President and Manafort insisted that they stop, according to unnamed sources. Last March, President Trump used his Twitter account to accuse former President Obama of surveilling him while he was still headquartered in Trump Tower. The Justice Department and the FBI have denied that President Trump was surveilled, however, during the campaign, Manafort had a residence in Trump Tower as well as his home in Alexandria, VA.

Jeff Berwick on Bitcoin Price Surge, China, Jamie Dimon, What You Need To Know "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

We Are Change

Today I am reporting from Acapulco, Mexico, home of the Anarchast and Anarchapulco. Here with me is Jeff Berwick. There have been so many amazing, incredible developments and exciting Bitcoin news. Whether its with Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan and Chase, or the latest news that just developed in China. The fears and concerns of many about our global currency. Were going to go over all the important developments of course with Jeff Berwick, a leading expert in the Bitcoin community.

Jeff has been on Fox News when anchors were telling the public that Bitcoin is a scam. He was telling people to buy at $35. Now even with the latest happenings in China where they have decided to block not only ICOs but also block exchanges. They want to get information about their users bank accounts to tax them. He called this several days before anyone else did. I asked what he thought of these latest developments, in particular with this big price influx that is happening with Bitcoin.

Jeff Berwick:
You know for Bitcoin is still a fairly small market. Its a sixty billion dollar market cap if you look at the total value of all the gold thats ever been mined thats about seven trillion. So thats a hundred times more or a thousand times more, I went to public school so I cant-do the math in my head. I think its a hundred times more so Bitcoin is 1/100 the size of the gold market, Jeff explained Youre going to see its it only started in 2009, so were just a few years into it. Most people didnt even know about Bitcoin in 2015. Were just a few years into it, so youre going to see a lot of fluctuations and volatility. One year ago today Bitcoin was $600, and it hit over five thousand dollars just a few weeks ago. It spiked quite high after the fork in August and had doubled in price since then. For it to pull back to around three thousand was expected, and I said it was going to. Then to have a bounce back now and its back up around four thousand again. This is very normal nascent currency that is evolving.

Luke Rudkowski:
I then asked Jeff if he has concerns, when it comes to the bigger kind of bankers and the corporations, putting their hands on Bitcoin which was usually more diversified.

I have no concerns whatsoever. They cant-do anything to take control of Bitcoin, they cant stop it, they cant censor it, no government can. Bitcoin doesnt exist anywhere; its the honey badger of money. China can say oh its illegal and Bitcoin doesnt care. I dont have any major concerns about any of those groups, Google, or any of them. In fact, I hav...

Snip and the Future of Distributed, Online Content "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Snip Header/Footer

Over the years, the world of online content has become increasingly convoluted and disjointed.

The best articles get lost beneath an avalanche of biased pieces, clickbait and content thats too lengthy to read. All of this adversely impacts the average persons ability to access credible media outlets that allow them to remain informed in todays ever-changing world.

In the digital age, the biggest issue confronting the news industry is verifiability. In other words, how can readers be certain that what theyre reading is true? Moreover, how do they know whether a particular media source is trustworthy?

The growing lack of credibility within the media industry became the impetus for Ran Reichman and Rani Horev to create a fresh alternative to todays prevailing media model. Known as Snip, this innovative news site delivers short, to-the-point summaries of the days most important stories and events. Through the use of state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms, Snip allows readers to tap into targeted news feeds on topics customized around their interests.

I founded Snip in May 2016 with machine learning and data science specialist Rani Horev, a co-graduate of the elite Talpiot program of the Israeli Defense Forces, said Reichman. Both Rani and I were frustrated by the low quality of news and how hard it was to find high-quality, interesting and brief content. Basically, there was a lot of long and good content and a lot of short and bad content, but almost no high-quality short content. We started Snip as a small Facebook page for friends and family and it gradually grew to more than 30,000 users and 1,400 paying subscribers.

When asked for a basic overview of Snips value proposition, Reichman was succinct: Snip is a news platform which keeps you updated on things that are happening in the world, personalized to you and in a short and concise format, he said. The headlines are anti-clickbait, allowing you to understand what the story is about before clicking on it and wasting your time. Snip quickly learns what you care about and provides you with stories on those topics, in addition to enlightening stories on other topics.

The platforms core model, Reichman said, is predicated on a distributed system where a worldwide collective of content generators curate short news submissions, or snips, that are then read by others on the site. Snips can be accessed in a number of different mediums, including audio and video, in addition to traditional, text-based posts. At its core, the site is censorship resistant a characteris...

China clamps down on cryptocurrencies as the battle for global financial control deepens "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The price of bitcoin plunged on Thursday after Chinese authorities crack down on cryptocurrencies, with the countrys biggest exchange announcing the suspension of operations.

The virtual currency fell more than 11 percent, trading at $3,544.14 as of 14:00pm GMT.

This is far below the all-time high of $5,013.91 set earlier this month.

According to China Business News, regulators in Shanghai and the countrys financial center gave verbal instructions to exchange operators to end services. The exchanges will reportedly shut down at the end of September.

BTC China, one of the countrys top three exchanges, tweeted on Thursday it will close down operations by September 30.

Last week, China banned initial coin offerings (ICOs), referring to them as an unauthorized fundraising tool that may involve financial scams. The Chinese central bank said those who have already raised money should pay it back.

China accounts for about 90 percent of all bitcoin trading on exchanges, and demand for the virtual currency was on the rise.

Beijing has strengthened control over bitcoin trading platforms to prevent them from becoming money laundering sites. It tried to curb capital outflow following fears of continued weakness in the domestic currency.

CoinHive, a Monero (XMR) Crypto Miner for Your Website "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Recently we have introduced to you JSEcoin JavaScript Embeded Cryptocurrency for Webmasters as an interesting new project that uses JavaScript mining via the browser of users and that can be used to monetize website traffic. But another similar service has gotten much more attention lately as it was found to be used on The Pirate Bay (a torrent website) in the form of an embedded JS miner for Monero (XMR). The service in question is Coin Hive and it allows you users to embed JavaScript miners in their website as a side source of revenue, so the service in itself is not bad or evil or whatever. The problem with The Pirate Bay is that they have introduced the JavaScript code of the miner without letting any of the visitors know, so people started noticing that when they open the website their CPU load skyrockets and that is not fine.

The main problem we are seeing here with a service like that is when users dont know that you are using their computing resources to mine, you need to tell them or offer them the choice to do it in order to support the website. The default example from Coin Hive does not come with any visual user interface or anything to let the users know there is a miner, but what if you give your visitors a link to click that will open up a page with a miner. They would be able to open up and control the miner as well as monitor it and have that page open and the miner running in order to support the website or the community they are a part of with their computing power. It is an interestin...

HIVE Blockchain Technologies (TSXV: HIVE & US: PRELF) "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Our Top Stock Suggestion
HIVE Blockchain Technologies (TSXV: HIVE)

Dear Reader,

With this, theres no need to keep track of a wallet, a 24-word passcode, or move your cryptocurrency to cold storage so its not hacked.

Many of us, including myself, have eagerly awaited a real play on Bitcoin in the stock market.

Ive been waiting for something that is as easy as logging into my brokerage account and buying a symbol that gives me ownership in the blockchain space.

To fully understand and appreciate our investment into HIVE, you need to know how bitcoins are created and the blockchain itself is supported.

Bitcoin and the blockchain depend on miners to secure transactions and control the creation of new digital currencies.

The computers that mine cryptocurrencies are the fundamental layer of the blockchain.

Its what makes it so powerful.

If someone wanted to hack the Department of Defense or a major corporate giant, they have a single target. But with the blockchain, the network is like the Internet its everywhere, supported by hundreds of thousands of computers around the world.

This also makes the blockchain trustworthy. Its essentially unhackable because it is everywhere and nowhere at the same time.

Because the miners add more computing power to the blockchain and the validation of transactions, they are rewarded with cryptocurrency (Bitcoin, Ether, etc.).

HIVE Blockchain Technologies Ltd. (TSXV: HIVE & US: PRLEF) is a blockchain mining infrastructure company.

Here is what you need to know about HIVE

HIVE is a partnership between Genesis Mining, the worlds largest Bitcoin cloud mining company, with over 700,000 customers, and Fiore Group, a leading Canadian...

This Will Kill the U.S. Dollar "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

This Will Kill the U.S. Dollar

China Strikes at the Heart of the Petrodollar

Dear Reader,

Crude oil, the master commodity, has been priced in dollars for the past 4 decades.

After the collapse of the Bretton Woods agreement, which ended the gold standard in the 1970s, President Nixon made a deal with the Saudis to make the U.S. dollar the currency that was used to buy oil.

The U.S. provided protection to the Saudi kingdom, other Arab states followed the same path, and by 1975, in order to buy the most sought-after commodity in the world, you needed to have U.S. dollars.

This created a scenario where the U.S. could run up deficits with low interest rates, with the rest of the world having no real say in the matter because the petrodollar gave the U.S. an economic hegemony. China and the world needed to buy more dollars in order to fuel their economies with oil.

That is, until now.

China, who is the second-largest oil consumer, has just launched a new futures contract.

Its a yuan-based, gold-backed crude oil contract.

China didnt just try to compete against the U.S. dollar. In order to attract oil providers to this yuan-based oil contract, they made it convertible into gold!

Gold, of course, is the king of money the master currency.

Ive personally never seen such a bullish event take place for gold or a more bearish one for the U.S. dollar.

Long-term, the dollar is dead.

One of the top experts on the U.S. dollar, gold, Bitcoin, and the global economy is my good friend Andy Hoffman.

Hes recently launched a new blog called CryptoGoldCentral.com

It will be one of the few blogs I check daily. What I love about Andy is that all of his commentary is original and he seems to pick up things others dont and call out B.S. when he sees it.

John McAfee accidentally just revealed why Bitcoin is a total fraud: Behold the logic of artificial work "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

(Natural News) In a recent CNBC interview thats being widely touted by self-deluded Bitcoin promoters as some kind of smack down of JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon, Bitcoin advocate John McAfee accidentally admitted why Bitcoin is a total fraud thats doomed to fail.

In answering Jamie Dimons recent declaration that Bitcoin is a fraud, McAfee replied: (see the video at The Daily Sheeple)

However, sir you called Bitcoin a fraud. Im a Bitcoin miner. We create Bitcoins. It costs over one thousand dollars per coin to create a Bitcoin. What does it cost to create a U.S. dollar? Which one is the fraud? Because [the dollar] costs whatever the paper costs, but it costs me and other miners over a thousand dollars per coin its called proof of work.

Behold the logic of artificial work: How John McAfee just embraced Paul Krugmans ditch digging fable

The problem with John McAfees explanation, of course, is that it admits Bitcoins can only be created through the practice of computational wheel spinning operations where the difficulty and duration of such wheel spinning is artificially made needlessly complex by the Bitcoin algorithm. In a world where Bitcoins used to be created for less than one pennys worth of computational work, a single Bitcoin now requires over US$1,000 worth of artificial work to be achieved. A rational person must ask McAfee, Why did Bitcoins used to cost just a penny to create, and now they cost a thousand dollars? The 100,000 X increase in complexity for generating a Bitcoin, it turns out, is an artificial work algorithm known as computational difficulty in mining.

This admission should be shocking to all Bitcoin holders for the simple reason that if Bitcoin drops below $1,000, mining now becomes unprofitable, rendering a very large part of the entire Bitcoin mining infrastructure instantly obsolete. The only thing keeping Bitcoin mining profitable right now is the bubble pricing of Bitcoin itself, and because all bubbles eventually burst, Bitcoin mining will sooner or later reach a point where its not worth the investment of hardware, electricity and time. (Theres also the 21 million coin limit thats rapidly approaching, by the way, which will spell the end of Bitcoin mining as it is conducted today.)

Furthermore, the artificial work aspect of Bitcoin mining and its artificial computational complexity is the digital equivalent of paying people to dig ditches and fill them in again while claiming the activity boosts economic output. This idea, believe it or not, is the classic economic paradox routinely p...

Bitcoin Exchange bitFlyer Hopes to Win Big With the Japanese Bankers Association "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

bitFlyer.jpg

While China tightens its grip on its cryptocurrency community, Japan is openly embracing cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, legalizing bitcoin, and encouraging and funding blockchain research.

Even Japans banks are onboard, working collaboratively to develop a blockchain platform specifically for the financial sector. With its 120 member banks, the Japanese Bankers Association (JBA) is creating a Collaborative Blockchain Platform and is actively looking for a company to supply its blockchain technology on an ongoing basis.

Experimenting with the Collaborative Blockchain Platform, the JBA will initially determine which financial services best lend themselves to the new platform, likely including settlement/transfer services, know-your-customer (KYC) systems and financial infrastructure such as their Zengin System and Densai Net System.

Japanese bitcoin exchange bitFlyer is stepping up to the plate to take on tech giants including Fujitsu, Hitachi and NTT Data to be the supplier of the blockchain platform that will be used by Japans banks.

Although it is one of the largest cryptocurrency and blockchain startups in Japan, the Tokyo-based bitFlyer has its work cut out for it if it wants to upset these three corporate heavyweights and win the right to supply the bankers with a blockchain platform using its miyabi technology.

The companys COO Bartek Ringwelski told Bitcoin Magazine:

bitFlyer is the only startup in the event, and we have only raised $36mm since 2014, but we have deep expertise in blockchain technology through our virtual currency exchange (the largest in the world by volume, including margin trading) and our miyabi product.

By way of comparison, Hitachi posted $83 billion in revenue in 2016, Fujitsu posted $47 billion on 2015 and NTT Data posted $15 billion in 2016.

Acknowledging a sea change in Japans attitude to cryptocurrency, Ringwelski noted that Japan is actively encouraging and supporting both cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology:

Japan is emerging as a leader in blockchain adoption. Japanese consumers are embracing virtual currencies, regulators are proactive, and banks are recognizing the power that blockchain, and specifically miyabi, can bring to the financial infrastructure.

Op Ed: How Blockchain Technology Will Disrupt Digital Content Distribution "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

gp digital content.jpg

The way we consume media content has been on a continual overhaul for the past two decades. Every aspect of media distribution has become more streamlined from the razor-thin devices we use to consume media to the manner in which we purchase and store our coveted content. Books, music and movies have all seen their physical bodies and storage locations dissolve, to be replaced with on-demand downloads and digital copies.

The digital content revolution has done a lot for increasing access and visibility for artists and authors, but the current publishing giants have failed to adequately adjust to the times in a few crucial areas. While it's true that platforms such as YouTube and Medium have granted publishing access to the greater public and eliminated gatekeeping middlemen like talent agents and PR people, the current digital content sharing platforms have built their empires on the skeletons of the publishing giants templates that existed before and, unfortunately, have continued operating in ways that fundamentally undermine the artistic control and profits of their contributors.   

YouTube, for example, recently announced they will not allow users to earn any money until they reach 10 thousand views. Medium was recently very candid about the moral dilemmas and growing pains they have faced while trying to balance the selling of advertising space as well as respecting their contributing authors and readership. And it's no secret that Amazon and iTunes take a chunk out of authors and artists earnings, with iTunes currently pocketing 30 percent of its artists profits and Amazon taking a hefty 3075 percent.

Though its easy to be critical, I am more interested in looking for a viable alternative to disrupt the existing system. This will require harnessing the decentralizing nature of emerging blockchain content distribution technologies. Heres why:

Blockchain could be the solution to making micropayments a reality.

As media consumption has gone digital, a cost-effective way to charge per article or per song has been a limiting factor. Many platforms and publications hav...

Do You Notice That it is All About ICOs Lately "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The craze for ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) seems to be going on and instead of things starting to calm down things are actually getting more and more intense, regardless of the news that some countries may be banning them or regulating them. Nowadays all we pretty much see in our sidebar with ads, provided mostly by Google, is pretty much all about ICOs and nothing more. We are also being contacted on a daily basis by a lot of people that are willing to advertise their upcoming or already running ICO or just do a coverage. We are not big fans of Initial Coin Offerings ourselves and writing about them or even directly advertising kind of means that we either approve or endorse them or at least this is what most people will think even if that is not our intention. We have been covering some ICOs in the past, just a few actually, as giving investment advice for ICOs especially has never been the idea or goal of this website. If we see a good idea and want to help promote the project and actually use the service or product that will or is being made directly as a result of an ICO we are going to share that information anyway. In such cases we are even investing something in that particular ICO ourselves, this is how much we believe in the idea. Even then however you should not threat that as an investment advice, you should still do your own research as we may not always be right on the spot

With all of the above said our team does not track any or all ICOs that are currently appearing, starting or ending, they are quite a lot actually and if you do not specialize on that topic alone it will be hard to cover it all. We are not investors or traders and we do not give investment or trading advice, even if we do both of these as well from time to time. We are not against ICOs as a concept, in fact we have recently taken a part of such a project ourselves Cryptum, a project that is developing a crypto mining board game among other things, though our interest was caught by that particular side of the project. It is not an ICO that promises great things such as decentralizing the board game business or putting board games on a blockc...

Blockchain Technology Plays a Critical Role in U.S. and International Open Government Initiatives "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

tech open door.jpg

On September 8, the U.S. governments General Services Administration (GSA)s program Emerging Citizen Technology hosted a workshop titled Emerging Technology and Open Data for a More Open Government. The participants in the workshop were directed to draft proposals that specifically use Artificial Intelligence (AI), blockchain technology and open data.

Open data and emerging technologies including artificial intelligence and distributed ledgers, such as blockchain hold vast potential to transform public services held back by bureaucracy and outdated IT systems, said Emerging Citizen Technology program manager Justin Herman. We are opening the doors to bold, fresh ideas for government accountability, transparency and citizen participation by working with U.S. businesses, civil society groups and others to shape national goals for emerging technologies and open data in public services.

At the workshop, several government agencies have indicated a strong government backing behind the development of blockchain technology. In particular, a representative of the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) stated that the Trump administration was serious about and committed to this technology, and would not be deterred.

The initiative is related to the fourth National Action Plan (NAP 4), which the U.S. government is releasing this year in the the framework of the multinational Open Government Partnership (OGP) and its Open Government Declaration. It is aimed at empowering citizens and advancing the ideals of an open and participatory government.

The September 8 workshop follows the first U.S. Federal Blockchain Forum, organized by the Emerging Citizen Technology program on July 18 to discuss blockchain use cases, limitations and solutions. Financial management, procurement, IT asset and supply chain management, smart contracts, patents, trademarks, copyrights, royalties, government-issued credentials, federal personnel workforce data, appropriated funds, federal assistance, and foreign aid de...

Senate Bill to Force Citizens to Register Cash Not in a Bank, Violators Get 10 Years in Prison "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

A new bill seeks to track your money and assets incessantly, will enjoin any business with government ties to act as a de facto arm of DHS, and would steal all of your assets including Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies should you fail to report funds when traveling with over $10,000.

Under the guise of combating money laundering, Senate Bill 1241, Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017, ramps up regulation of digital currency and other autocratic financial controls in an attempt to ensure none of your assets can escape one of the States most nefarious, despised powers: civil asset forfeiture.

All of this under the farcically broad umbrella of fighting terrorism.

Civil forfeiture grants the government robbery writ large: your cash, property, and assets can be stolen completely sans due process, your guilt frequently pertaining to drug crimes matters not.

A court verdict of not guilty doesnt even guarantee the return of State-thefted property.

In fact, the government can seize virtually whatever it wants if it so much as suspects some of your assets might have been acquired through or used in the commission of even lesser crimes.

For some time, a war on cash has been brewing behind the closed doors of government, and although officials prefer to claim counterfeiting, terrorism, and money laundering as the impetus for asset tracking in actuality, physical currency facilitates black market and untaxed transactions, and, most imperatively to the U.S., cannot be thefted under civil asset forfeiture laws as easily as money exchanged digitally.

Characterized as an effort to to improve the prohibitions on money laundering, and for other purposes, the bill severely curtails the right to travel freely, without undue hindrance, as travelers with more than $10,000 in assets including those held digitally, like Bitcoin must file a report with the U.S. government.

Noncompliance with the tyrannical law including failing to fill out the aforementioned form would incur penalties befitting a fascist dictatorship: an individual could find the entirety of their assets seized, not just those unreported, and could be locked in a prison cage for up to ten years.

To be clear, the State wants to write a permission slip to seize all of your assets bank accounts, including, specifically, safety deposit boxes, prepaid cards, gift cards, prepaid phones, prepaid coupons, cryptocurrencies, all of it even for bei...

This is in light of Rocket Man comments, many Floridians still without power as 3 new threats are swarming in the Atlantic, Venezuela pricing oil in yuan, bitcoin erratically, Syria heating up again, and any number of pick your poison doubleplusbad fundamental news. However, we knew this would happen, which can be seen in the following ominous chart for silver:

When we look at silver, we see there is some minor support around$17.15. Major support is at $17:

Lets hope we really dont fall through $17 at this point, though we are quite certain the cartel will push as hard as possible on price to the downside over the next two days. Once $17 is lost, there is no consolidation anywhere on that daily, and momentum would most likely carry the white metal even lower, so a $16 handle before 2:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday is where they will indeed try to push the silver price down to. If there was a great time to scrape-up some extra cash and grab the change jar to put in an order, it seems like the best time would be over the next two days.

The MSM and the Fed are still in lock-step, singing to the same tune, and cheer leading the everything is awesome meme. Come Wednesday afternoon, however, this could all change, and there could serious move in the gold and silver market. The MSM feels the Fed can do no wrong, but the Fed has zero margin for policy error, and on top of that, if Yellen has a Freudian slip, the movein gold and silver prices could be violent to the upside.

Lets see all the different scenarios that could cause a big move in the markets:

  • No more balance sheet reduction talks
  • Talk of balance sheet expansion
  • Talk of hurricanes which will be combined with over-use of transitory
  • Rate....

Im not going to stop the n-word: Tech CEO Insults Employees, Threatens And Assaults Women "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

A lawsuit claims Silicon Valley CEO Gurbaksh Chahal habitually used racial slurs when speaking to subordinates, physically attacked two women and fired a male employee who attempted to prevent him from hitting a third woman.

Chahal is the subject of a lawsuit which alleges that he called workers his n**gers and took out his violent rages on employees. Two other pending lawsuits against Chahal accuse him of misleading investors, hiring women based on their looks and making death threats against one employee of his multiple tech companies, reported The Daily Beast.

In 2013, Chahal briefly stepped down as CEO of his ad tech company RadiumOne after a viciously attacking his girlfriend, according to David Ferguson of Raw Story.

Police examined surveillance video and determined that during the attack, Chahal punched and kicked the woman he was dating 117 times. He then tried to smother her with a pillow for 20 seconds. Court records show that microphones caught Chahal threatening the woman, Im going to kill you 4 times as he beat her, Ferguson reported.

The rich man resumed his position at RadiumOne after the judge dropped the myriad of felony counts against him because he strangely decided the video was inadmissible as evidence.

Its amazing how judges always seem to side with rich people.

The RadiumOne board decided they didnt want Chahal around, even though the judge let the vicious abuser walk free.

But Chahal formed a new company called Gravity4 and has continued to lead new business ventures including trying to raise $100 billion to start a new Bitcoin-like crypto-currency, the Daily Beast noted.

Gravity4 chief of staff Ali Al-Ansari filed a new suit alleging that Chahal is shockingly sexist, detailing a series of remarks...

"Artificial work": John McAfee accidentally just revealed why Bitcoin is a complete fraud "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

In a recent CNBC interview that's being widely touted by self-deluded Bitcoin promoters as some kind of "smack down" of JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon, Bitcoin advocate John McAfee accidentally admitted why Bitcoin is a total fraud that's doomed to fail. In answering Jamie Dimon's recent declaration that Bitcoin is a fraud, McAfee replied: (see the video at The Daily Sheeple) However, sir... you called Bitcoin 'a fraud.' I'm a Bitcoin miner. We create Bitcoins. It costs over one thousand dollars per coin to create a Bitcoin. What does it cost to create a U.S. dollar? Which one is the fraud? Because [the dollar] costs whatever the paper costs, but it costs me and other miners over a thousand dollars per coin - it's called 'proof of work.' Behold the logic of artificial work: How John McAfee just embraced Paul Krugman's ditch digging fable The problem with John McAfee's explanation, of course, is that it admits Bitcoins can only be created through the practice of computational wheel spinning operations where the difficulty and duration of such wheel spinning is artificially made needlessly complex by the Bitcoin algorithm. In a world where Bitcoins used to be created for less than one penny's worth of computational work, a single Bitcoin now requires over US$1,000 worth of "artificial work" to be achieved. A rational person must ask McAfee, "Why did Bitcoins used to cost just a penny to create, and now they cost a thousand dollars?" The 100,000 X increase in complexity for generating a Bitcoin, it turns out, is an artificial work algorithm known as "computational difficulty" in mining.

Bitcoin Price Falls 40% In 3 Days Underlining Golds Safe Haven Credentials "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Courtesy of CoinDesk

Even for bitcoin last week was an eventful week. The price hit a recent low of $2,980, falling 40% and recovering by nearly 25% in the space of three days.

Last week was a good example of the vulnerabilities in the cryptocurrency space to government announcements regarding the infrastructure the ecosystem.

This last year has seen unprecedented progress and development in the bitcoin and crypto arena. From the price reaching new highs to an explosion in Initial Coin Offerings.

The fall in price by over $1,000 should serve as a reminder that markets will stumble when they try to run before they can walk. As much as early adopters like to declare bitcoin the new currency and declare is true safe haven, the last week has shown that gold is a far better long-term safe haven.

Government meddling

Reasons for bitcoins (and other cryptos) fall last week was mainly thanks to further crackdowns on bitcoin exchanges by the Chinese government. On Thursday bitcoin fell 16% against the U.S. dollar as the Chinese announced they were closer to shutting down cryptocurrency exchanges.

This week commentators believe crypto traders have now priced in the negative news from the East, however last weeks performance was yet another example of how vulnerable bitcoin still is to government announcements.

This weekend and this morning the price has begun to recover following a report from the Bank of International Settlements.

To be fair, their buying process already looked pretty high-tech, especially for a store with a dirt parking lot in the middle of the desert. Before paying, each shopper peered into a black, rectangular iris scanner mounted at eye-level, which confirms users identities with the camps organizing group, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, and allows them to access a food stipend from the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP).

Bitcoin crashes as Beijing orders cryptocurrency exchange shutdown "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

https://www.rt.com/business/403328-china-bitcoin-exchanges-shutdown/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=RSS

The price of bitcoin plunged on Thursday after Chinese authorities crack down on cryptocurrencies, with the countrys biggest exchange announcing the suspension of operations.

The virtual currency fell more than 11 percent, trading at $3,544.14 as of 14:00pm GMT. This is far below the all-time high of $5,013.91 set earlier this month.

According to China Business News, regulators in Shanghai and the countrys financial center gave verbal instructions to exchange operators to end services. The exchanges will reportedly shut down at the end of September.

BTC China, one of the countrys top three exchanges, tweeted on Thursday it will close down operations by September 30.

Last week, China banned initial coin offerings (ICOs), referring to them as an unauthorized fundraising tool that may involve financial scams. The Chinese central bank said those who have already raised money should pay it back.

China accounts for about 90 percent of all bitcoin trading on exchanges, and demand for the virtual currency was on the rise.

Beijing has strengthened control over bitcoin trading platforms to prevent them from becoming money laundering sites. It tried to curb capital outflow following fears of continued weakness in the domestic currency.

Japan Becomes Largest Bitcoin Market as Traders Leave China "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Japan has once again become the largest Bitcoin exchange market with 50.75 percent market share of the global Bitcoin exchange market. Analysts including BitFury Vice Chairman George Kikvadze attributed the surge in the trading volume of the Japanese Bitcoin exchange market to the exit of Bitcoin traders in China.
Earlier this week, the Chinese government, local authorities and financial regulators officially requested Chinese Bitcoin exchanges and trading platforms to halt their services by the end of September. OKCoin and Huobi, the two largest exchanges in China, were granted leeway to operate until Oct. 30, considering the fact that they have not been involved in any initial coin offerings (ICOs) in the past.
But, it seems as if traders are not willing to take any chances with the Chinese government and their unpredictable nature. The Chinese Bitcoin exchange markets daily trading volume has halved within a period of three days, from 15 percent to less than seven percent.
According to various trusted Bitcoin market data providers such as CryptoCompare, China only accounts for 6.4 percent of global Bitcoin trades at the time of reporting.

US market benefits
Prior to the nationwide Bitcoin exchange ban by China, the US exchange market had consistently secured its position as the largest market in the world.
However, almost immediately after the announcement of the countrys three largest Bitcoin exchanges, BTCC, Huobi and OKCoin, were released, traders moved over to the Japanese Bitcoin exchange market. The abrupt migration of traders led to the short-term surge in the trading volume of Japan, allowing the market to overtake the US by over 20 percent in global Bitcoin exchange market share.
Contrary to many negative reports, prominent developers, analysts, researchers and experts within the cryptocurrency and Blockchain sectors including Litecoin creator Charlie Lee and billionaire investor Tim Draper expressed their optimism toward the shutdown of the Chinese Bitcoin exchange market. Lee emphasized that the Chinese government will no longer be able to manipulate the market, as it had done since 2013.
Lee says:
This is a good thing. China can no longer play with the markets by banning Bitcoin. Cryptocurrency cannot be killed by any country. One solution to centralized exchanges is decentralized ones. I hear the Decred Project team has something cooking that helps with that.
Bitcoin stabilization
As Lee emphasized, the exit of the Chinese Bitcoin exchange market should really only have affected around 10 to 15 percent of traders in the global Bitcoin exchange market. Yet, speculators and impatient traders initiated a major sell-off as the Chinese government banned exchanges, leading to a major correction on Bitcoin price.
Over the next few weeks, the global Bitcoin exchange market will stabilize, as tr...
