  • Bitcoin just breached all-time high in hourly volume!

    As Bitcoin became extremely volatile yesterday, it breached its all-time high hourly transaction volume. In just one hour, the on-chain volume of Bitcoin was more than $8.9 billion. While the blame falls on volatility for the movement, the actual reason might be completely different. Click here to read the full news Looks like Bitcoin does it again! No, we're not talking more about the price pump, but the on-chain volume that was being generated in just an hour. For me, I think this one is really something! To all who have waited for the price to pump, you guys didn't see this coming back then due to the market's unpredictability. I just hope that before the end of the year, Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies will be making a "one last rally". However, I would not count on the Santa Rally though. It's just that Bitcoin is full of surprises, especially this one.

  • CMCC Global Launches CMCC Exchange for Online Investment

    CMCC Global Launches CMCC Exchange for Online Investment November 15, 2019 2:30pm Toronto, ON – November 15, 2019 – Over the last few months, the Asian cryptocurrency market has seen significant progress. Despite having a rocky history with cryptocurrencies, the Republic of China has become a major player in the international and Asian cryptocurrency scene. Cryptocurrencies have gained popularity in China due to several factors. Cheap energy and mining hardware, as well as a more technology aware general population, has made China the hub for Bitcoin mining. Over 70% of the cryptocurrency’s computing power is coming out of China. Furthermore, China has secured more patents related to blockchain and cryptocurrencies than any other country. United States – the country with the second-highest number of patents – has only a third of the number of patents held by China. A clear indication of the republic’s domination of the current global cryptocurrency. CMCC Global is a venture capital group based in Hong Kong. The organization is leveraging China’s position as the leader of the cryptocurrency leader and launching a number of cryptocurrency-focused services. CMCC Global: An Introduction CMCC Global is one of Asia’s first venture capital firms, focusing solely on blockchain investments. The firm has built a reputation for itself as a leading investor in the blockchain ecosystem. The company’s vision is to see blockchain emerge as the catalyst that fuels the creation of the next era of the internet. CMCC Global was founded in 2016 by Charlie Morris and Martin Baumann in Hong Kong. The firm launched its first venture capital fund and made its first major investment in Ethereum the same year. Over the next year, CMCC Global had made investments into some leading blockchain protocols such as Cosmos, Hashgraph, Icon, Qtum, Solana, and Terra. In early 2018, the firm opened an additional office in Toronto, Canada. By the end of that year, CMCC Global had become a regulated mutual fund in the Cayman Islands. In 2019 so far, the firm has launched Titan Fund and raised $50 million for equity-focused investments. Furthermore, it also launched the Bitcoin Liberty Fund which is meant to provide accredited investors secure exposure to Bitcoin. As a cryptocurrency-focused firm, CMCC Global has always pushed for adoption and innovation in the cryptocurrency sector. CMCC Global Launches CMCC Exchange Now, CMCC Global is launching a cryptocurrency exchange CMCC Exchange with offices in Asia (Hong Kong) as well as North America (Canada). Alongside the typical services provided by any cryptocurrency exchange, CMCC Exchange will provide access to cryptocurrency quotes for its members. The firm will be focusing on short-term investments and rely on technology differentiation to investment opportunities. Furthermore, the CMCC Exchange will be providing direct and secure access to digital funds that invest directly in smart and simple contract platforms and blockchain protocols, as well as blockchain quotes. The company lists Omni, BitFinex, Ambisafe, Kraken, Bittrex, ePay, and BTC Traders as its industry supporters. Cryptocurrency Arbitrage: A Lucrative Trading Strategy Arbitrage is the process of taking advantage of inefficiencies in markets. In the case of cryptocurrencies, this translates into a fluctuating price of a digital asset over a short period. Furthermore, the cryptocurrency prices also differ to a relatively great degree between different regional markets. That means there is a possibility for profit to be earned by purchasing a digital asset in one exchange where the prices are lower and reselling it in another exchange where the prices are higher. This is cryptocurrency arbitrage. Case Study: Bitcoin Arbitrage Let’s go over a real-time example of using Arbitrage to create profit out of thin air with Bitcoin. At the time of writing, the price of Bitcoin in USD at Bitstamp is $8733.49 and at CEX.io it is $8795.0. This difference in price will allow anyone who buys bitcoin at Bitstamp and sells it at CEX.io to earn a net profit. This is cryptocurrency arbitrage. CMCC Exchange will be offering to distribute the profits made through cryptocurrency arbitrage to its customers. Hong Kong Protests and the reality of offline selling markets The Hong Kong protests have been going on for over 5 months now. The situation on the ground has only worsened since. Without taking away from the seriousness of the situation, it is clear that selling and buying offline will continue to get more difficult in the region. This means more and more crypto traders are going to need an online platform to continue doing business. CMCC Exchange has the backing of the highly reputable CMCC Global. It offers premium services and a much-needed online platform for its clients in and around Hong Kong. Furthermore, through its office in Canada as well, the exchange will be able to reach customers in both halves of the world. The firm’s ability to attract high investor activity while reducing risks and providing secure access to the market at the same time something to look forward to for both investors and cryptocurrency traders.

  • Need help sending BTC

    I don't use BTC much. So I forget how it works? I use Electrum. I want to send someone $50.00. Under my Electrum account History it shows my last purchase and to the far right I see a balance of 0.00527672. 0.00527672 Bitcoin equals $38.50 United States Dollar according to the Internet. $50 equals 0.0069 Bitcoin $50.00 - 38.50 = $11.50. So I need $11.50 worth of BTC. $11.50 equals 0.0016 Bitcoin. So if I buy $11.50 or 0.0016 Bitcoin. And I send it to my Electrum wallet. Will the $11.50 or 0.0016 Bitcoin be added automatically to my balance? I presume it would be. So are my numbers above correct? I know there are certain fees that get deducted from the money you receive or send. So how much BTC do I need to buy and be safe I have enough after fee deductions? And where is the best place to buy BTC? I live in Florida. Coin Mama doesn't service Florida last time I checked? Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks, Bill

  • Equities market structure expert: SEC anti-bitcoin ETF analysis has '3 main flaw

    David Weisberger, co-founder and CEO of CoinRoutes, says there are three main flaws in the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) reasoning in delaying and rejecting applications for a bitcoin-based exchange-traded fund (ETF).   On October 9, the SEC denied a proposal by Bitwise and NYSE Arca to create a bitcoin-backed ETF, stating that the proposed ETFs did not meet the requirements of a section of the Exchange Act, which demands national securities exchange to “prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices." The rejection marks another vain attempt to establish the first bitcoin ETF. Weisberger is the former managing director of Citigroup and was responsible for building out the company's electronic trading systems. In a recent op-ed published in CoinDesk, he finds fault with the SEC’s argument for three main reasons. First, there already exist many self-proclaimed bitcoin exchanges that meet the standards of money center or trust bank regulation, he says, and there has been no proven “fake and non-economic activity." In fact, according to Weisberger, these exchanges provide sufficient liquidity for price discovery. Second, he argues that compared to gold, silver, and other precious metals that have already been approved for ETFs, bitcoin offers a far greater level of transparency. While the former’s spot prices take place on a negotiated basis with a bid-ask spread of over 4%, bitcoin pricing can be accessed from a number of markets running electronic data and has a bid-ask spread of less than 1%. Third, allegations of manipulation are present regarding other commodities as well, as demonstrated by the RICO case against precious metal traders in September. Weisberger believes that the SEC shows its bias by holding bitcoin to a higher standard given that bitcoin is neither more subject to potential manipulation nor operates in a market that is harder to monitor. It does not make sense to favor those commodities while delaying bitcoin’s ETF approval, he says.

  • A new app offers Bitcoin cashback rewards at Airbnb, Amazon, Target and more

    Following a successful beta test, the Fold app is now available to all on iOS and Android, promising users up to 20% back in bitcoin when shopping. The holiday shopping season is officially underway, and the crypto “cashback” reward programs are in full swing. Today, the San Francisco-based Fold announced that its Bitcoin-earning app is now available to the general public on iOS and Android, and its users can begin receiving up to 20 percent of their purchases back (in Bitcoin) at retailers such as Amazon, Starbucks, Uber, Sephora, and Airbnb. Fold customers can do this by downloading the app (previously only available in beta) and purchasing prepaid cards for these and other merchants through their Bitcoin lightning wallets. Once they purchase those prepaid cards and begin shopping—whether its booking a flight through Delta or Southwest, or ordering a pizza from Dominos, they can earn rewards in bitcoin. Fold CEO Will Reeves told Decrypt that more than 3,000 users took part in the app’s beta test. And what sets Fold apart from the various other Bitcoin-stacking apps is that Fold rewards are instant, and users retain control over their coins, Reeves explained. That means they can spend it on future purchases, save it, or withdraw it their personal wallets. Reeves also said that Fold protects its users by shielding their identities to make it look like all purchases are being made by Fold, rather than individual shoppers. “Because merchants only see a payment from Fold rather than from the consumer, user data cannot be stolen by hackers or sold to advertisers,” he said. As for Fold’s relationship with the retailers that its app supports, Reeves explained that it all functions as an integration into each retailer’s prepaid program. Fold approaches merchants and gains approval to offer gift cards and store credit at discounted rates. This, Fold’s CEO explained, is what allows the company to offer instant cashback as opposed to the weeks or months it can sometimes take for customers to redeem rewards from affiliate-marketing programs. “Fold provides more value to merchants than affiliate programs because we offer merchants lower credit-card processing fees and reduced chargebacks,” he said. “Fold accomplishes this by combining payments with rewards. There is also no way for affiliate markets to protect consumer data from being collected or stolen.” Of course, Fold is far from the only Bitcoin cashback game in town. Another prominent player is Lolli, which earned a spot on CNBC’s list of “most promising startups” of 2019 just last week. Other companies to offer similar crypto cashback programs for consumers include Pei, which provides automatic cashback in bitcoin, and Earn.com, which allows users to earn crypto by completing gigs. Reeves insists, however, that Fold stands out from the pack precisely because it isn’t an affiliate marketer. He attributes the growing field of crypto rewards programs to a report issued by Blockchain Capital, which suggested that approximately 42 percent of people between 18 and 34 are looking to purchase cryptocurrency within the next five years. “Merchants see giant potential to grow their consumer base through this new audience,” he said. “We will see many more crypto-focused discounts, promotional offers and ways to pay.”

  • How the bitcoin market always overreacts

    Bitcoin traders are known to overreact to market events, causing extreme bitcoin price volatility. Here’s why. Anybody who has ever traded the bitcoin market is likely well aware of one thing—it is notoriously volatile. Events that would barely move other markets can have a dramatic, but typically short-lived effect on bitcoin. Here, we examine some of the most recent cases of volatility, and posit the possible rationale behind the madness that is bitcoin trading. Case in point The most prominent overreaction in recent months was caused by comments from Chinese President Xi Jinping last month. During a speech made to the 18th collective study of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee, President Xi praised Bitcoin's underlying technology, blockchain, hailing it is an important breakthrough. Almost immediately after President Xi's remarks were made public, bitcoin spiked from under $7,500, up to almost $10,000—rising by a third in less than a day—ending more than a month of decline. However, once the hysteria died down, the price of bitcoin again resumed its downtrend, falling back below $7,500, to its lowest value in over six months. BTC -21.32% $7335.45 Nov 7 Nov 11 Nov 15 Nov 19 Nov 23 Nov 27 Dec 1 Dec 5 graph BTC price  This isn't the first time a president's remarks have significantly influenced bitcoin's price action either. Back in July, US President Donald Trump posted a series of tweets slamming bitcoin, calling it "highly volatile and based on thin air," while remarking that unregulated crypto assets facilitate illegal activities. That day the price of bitcoin fell from $12,000 to $11,200. But by the next day, the panic was over and the price rose back up towards $12,000. Other events have similarly caused mass hysteria in the bitcoin market. In June, a flash crash on the Kraken cryptocurrency exchange saw bitcoin briefly fall to $100—potentially as a result of a single large compromised account. This resulted in one of bitcoin’s largest-ever single-day dumps. And yet again, once people realized the damage was limited, the price bounced back. Explaining bitcoin’s extreme volatility Since many cryptocurrencies, bitcoin included, derive much of their value as speculative investment vehicles, it stands to reason that any event that can significantly affect investor sentiment could alter its price action. But in the bitcoin market, this is taken to the extreme, largely spearheaded by factors described as Fear Of Missing Out (FOMO)—people jumping on positive price action—and Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD)—a term used for negative news. “With the unpredictability of future trends, the crypto market reacts highly emotionally to positive as well as negative news or events,” said Gregor Krambs, cofounder of Alternative.me, which builds the Crypto Fear & Greed Index tool used to track sentiment in the crypto market. “The outcome of these mostly irrational decisions are driven by emotions of fear and greed, which get amplified by the vast amount of participants acting in the market,” he added. Prominent trader known as CryptoVince argues that institutions make the most of this, exaggerating the price swings. He told Decrypt, “Retailers usually FOMO in upon good news causing a quick increase in price. Institutions countertrade the FOMO and sell/short bitcoin which will dramatically drop in the mid-term.” “The exact opposite can also occur when bad news appears, which can explain bitcoin's price action in late October," he said. As a result, significant good or bad news can cause a sudden rally or drop, as first responders emotionally react to the news, CryptoVince argued. This is then followed by algorithmic responses from higher volume traders, and lastly casual traders catching the back end of the price action. As the initial hysteria dies down, the price then begins to stabilize, with a trend reversal often following shortly after. Source: https://decrypt.co/12072/how-the-bitcoin-market-always-overreacts

  • Is Bitcoin a better investment than gold, oil and stocks?

    Over the past decade, bitcoin has morphed from a relatively niche payments system to one of the world's most profitable investment assets. In its infancy, the return on investment for bitcoin has managed to surpass the returns of traditional assets and indices, virtually crushing them in its wake. With the turn of the century around the corner, let’s take a look back at how you would have done if you had placed $100 on each of these investments. Please note, this is not financial advice. The price of bitcoin Within its 10-year nascency, bitcoin has gone from zero to veritable hero. Straight off the starting block—or should that be genesis block—bitcoin's gains were pretty astounding. Within the first few years of its price discovery, bitcoin managed to go from literally nothing to a peak of $1,047 in 2014, its first bubble. What followed was a bear cycle, stretching all the way to the fateful 2017 bull run. BTC -21.32% $7335.45 Nov 7 Nov 11 Nov 15 Nov 19 Nov 23 Nov 27 Dec 1 Dec 5 graph BTC price  At its peak at around $20,000, bitcoin had returned an almost inconceivable 25 million percent from its earliest recorded price point of $0.08 per bitcoin. Nevertheless, much like every other cycle in its life, the price of bitcoin came cascading down. A protracted bear winter in 2018, and a brief spate of parabola this year places bitcoin at a current price of around $7,200. This gives the price of bitcoin a prevailing 10-year return on investment (ROI) of 9 million percent. That means $100 would have netted you $900 million. In theory. (You probably would have spent it by now, let’s be real). Given this, stacking up traditional investments against BTC seems about as reasonable as pitting a Chihuahua against a Lion. Regardless, here’s how other assets fared over the past ten years. The price of gold Regarded as bitcoin's physical counterpart, gold has had a similarly rocky decade. Citing a price of around $690 in December 2009, the precious metal climbed swiftly to a peak some two years later—claiming a price high of $1,164. The following five years didn't treat gold so well, as it retraced back to around $700. This was thought to have occurred due to a tapering of global monetary easing. With the global economy back on track after the 2008 financial crisis, gold's use case was faltering. It wasn't until 2019 that the yellow rock rebounded to its previous highs, settling at a current price of $1,131. This provides gold with a 10 year ROI of 63.9%. So $100 would now be worth $163.9. Nothing particularly crazy, but it is supposedly a safe haven after all. The price of oil Unlike gold and bitcoin, the price of oil started off on a high. In December 2019, black gold fetched a price of $70. After a few years of fluctuating and a short-lived, all-time high of $113, the price of oil came crashing down by 71% in 2016, hitting a low of $30—a decline not witnessed since 1985. Follow Decrypt Be the first to hear about breaking crypto news and the insider stories by following us on social. According to the World Bank, this collapse was caused by an overabundance of the black stuff, manifesting from a boom in the production of shale oil. However, the expectations of this excess supply were not met by the market. With demand for oil dissipating, the price plunged into the depths. Today, oil is priced at around $58, giving it an ROI of -17%. So that $100 would be down to $83, after ten years of investing. Yikes. The Dow Jones Industrial Average This exalted and time-honored stock index was among the few US stock indices to claim the longest bull run in history. It rose from the ashes of the global crash, citing 10,471 points in 2009, to an all-time high (ATH) of 28,000 points this year. The primary reason for this impressive rise appears to be due to the performance of the 30 major companies the Dow lists. The Dow 30 cites major players such as Apple, Microsoft, Coca-Cola, American Express, and JPMorgan Chase among others. Over these years, the Dow marks an impressive 167% ROI. That $100 would now be worth $267. The NASDAQ Composite Index The very same index cited in the infamous dotcom bubble, the Nasdaq's impressive rise and fall is often compared to bitcoin's own fall from grace in 2017. Much like the Dow, the Nasdaq has had a stellar decade, rising from 2190 points in 2009 to an all-time high of 8,665 points this year. The main catalyst driving the Nasdaq's strong rally appears to be tech stocks such as Facebook, and Amazon, who expanded in the late noughties, continuing their parabolic streaks well into 2019. Bitcoin Long Bitcoin, short Amazon? Morgan Creek Capital CEO: Sell Amazon stocks, buy Bitcoin NEW YORK—Morgan Creek Capital CEO Mark Yusko made a keynote speech at the Digital Asset Summit today where he provided the audience with some simple yet perhaps controversial advice: sell your...   The Nasdaq's ROI of 295% is more than enough to beat the Dow. Putting $100 into that back in the day would have netted you $395. The S&P 500 Yet another well-performing stock index, the S&P 500 shares the accolade of the longest bull run in history with the dow. Similarly, this famed index gained traction during the following the economic crisis, recording a—largely uninterrupted—rise from 1106 points to 3140 points in 2019. Holger Zschaepitz @Schuldensuehner Today, the S&P 500's bull-market run will turn 3,453 days old, which will make it the longest such streak in history. Bull run overtakes 3,452 days between November 1990 and March 2000, according to S&P Dow Jones indices. Therefore, the S&P 500 comes to an ROI of 183%. While your $100 would be up to $283, topping the Dow, it would still be lower than both the Nasdaq and bitcoin. Who knows what the next ten years will hold.

  • Bitcoin Is Not Gold

    The big question for Bitcoin: Is Bitcoin like a commodity or like an equity? I say it’s a big question because commodities bubble and when they do, they follow a series of mini booms and busts that shrink in scale over an extended period. After the commodities bubble of the early 1970s, commodities bubbled every few years until in the end the commodity market was as dead as a dodo. It would be unfortunate if Bitcoin was like commodities in that way. Equities bubble and technology stocks bubble every few years. While it isn’t necessarily the same technology that froths up, it is still the same sector. These booms grow with the economy and only get bigger. In the recent two tech bubbles the same big names have appeared: Amazon, Apple and Microsoft, and that is the kind of model that Bitcoin believers want from their crypto assets. Right now, Bitcoin certainly looks like a commodity after an initial bubble was followed by a recent and tremendous rally. This progress looks rather like a commodity aftershock. Yet commodities collapse after a bubble because the mining companies over invest in mining more of the thing and then dump a glut onto the market causing a price collapse. These price slumps force mines out of business, creating a drop of supply that in turn creates a price spike and the cycles repeats. Underneath it all is the march of technology making the basic process ever cheaper, undercutting prices and swelling production.
