Binance's retail-led Bitcoin Futures overtake of BitMEX begs questioning

Binance's retail-led Bitcoin Futures overtake of BitMEX begs questioning submitted by RambleFeed to binance [link] [comments]

Binance scammed me 1516 USDT with unethical verification requests! Then rejected my real verification with stupid reasons! Stay Away from this Scam Exchance! (Latest Review)

Hello guys,
may be you remember the story I posted here recently about HOW BINANCE is SCAMMING me 1516 USDT If not you can review it here: https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/g08w53/binance_scammed_me_1516_usdt_with_unethical/
Here is the final update. I'm not here anymore to try to beg binance to refund my money, as it's already clear that they scammed. I want just want awareness about the shit exchange.
In short, binance BinanceExchange and their manager u/symbiotic_bnb SCAMMED me my 1516 USDT.
They wanted me to send my real documents, provide some video I must record for them. I did all they requested and they replied saying "no, it's not you, you got documents on darknet". My godddd, so I went to darknet, I bought docs from people and requested them the videos, how sick are these people? I don't even know where is that darknet ( Smybiotic may be you can teach me).
When I insited, they told me they are expecting from me UK documents because I was connecting using UK IP wowwww
I was using indeed UK private proxy to use my unverified account, and even if not, whats the relation with my IP when using unverified account?
These guys are simply SCAMMER!!!!!!!!!!!
Binance, one more time you WON, CONGRATULATIONS. Keep scamming people like you do everyday.

Google's search for Bitcoin Coronavirus overtake Bitcoin halving 2020

Halving bitcoin is a short-term trend due to hyped feelings. Google trend data and price reactions suggest that halving could be an overly hyped incident. In addition, the interest in "Bitcoin Coronavirus" has halved given the safe perspective.
The five-year graph of Google trends and price trends indicate that the mood and online search peakedduring the halving (July 9, 2016) and fell almost instantly over the next few weeks. In addition, the price had taken a downward turn weeks before halving.
Coincidentally, the small increase in the trend before the moon shot rise coincides with the price peak. Therefore, after a certain point, there was an inverse correlation between online sentiments and price
The "Google trend" for the keyword "Bitcoin halving" appears to be falling again, indicating that the bull run may be priced in in half.
If we look at the top five capitalized altcoins - Ethereum, Ripple (XRP), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), and Bitcoin SV (BSV) - we see that the volume of search traffic largely matches the order of each crypto correlates assets by market cap - with the exception of “Litecoin”, which has more searches than “Bitcoin Cash”.
One of the biggest barriers to entry for disruptive technology is the incompetence of the average consumer. On the other hand, simply chasing consumer illiteracy can be a blessing for some really terrible inventions. In the clash of these two ideologies, we have reached the dumb currency singularity.
The digital currency has been on the way to dumb singularity for more than a decade, and we finally crossed the event horizon at the end of last year. At the end of 2019, the IRS tacitly published a series of guidelines for virtual currencies, in which common cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum were combined with Fortnite V-Bucks and Roblox Money.
I have just been informed that the legal term for the Roblox currency is "Robux". That seems ... fair.
My point, however cumbersome, is that someone who has had some influence with the United States Internal Revenue Service saw his grandchild begging for a Roblox card at the Walgreens cash register and thought, "MY GOD, THE BITCOINS COME FOR THE CHILDREN. " And then, when he expressed his horror, a phalanx of IRS colleagues looked around enough and thought "Yes, that sounds right" that it was lit green for public consumption.
This recommendation (on which the IRS claimed that Fortnite and Roblox players should report all purchases of "Bucks", be it "V" or "Ro" -) was monolithic for almost three months before being as quiet as off the stage was escorted it had arrived. In a bout of Streisand, this change attracted more attention than the addition initially, and the IRS made a formal statement. "The IRS recognizes that the language on our side may be of concern to some taxpayers," they said. "We changed the language to avoid confusion. Transactions in virtual currencies as part of a game that does not leave the game environment (virtual currencies that are not convertible) do not require a taxpayer to state this in their tax returns."

lost 2349 LTC

Electrum-ltc,
Today I found out Two thousand three hundred ninety nine Litecoins were stolen from my wallet on April 12, 2018.
Here is what I did that day:
1- On the morning of April 12, I decided to reset Windows 10 using the recovery option. and wipe out all files, which I had already backed-up on another drive. 2- After installing Windows office, Chrome and Adobe Reader, I then decided to download the Electrum Litecoin wallet from . 3- I downloaded the "Windows installer" version, typed in my seed during the setup and next a message indicating an error popped-up. The message said something about not being able to connect to the server. 4- I tried once again and the same thing happened. I quickly goggle for an answer but couldn't find a simple one. 5- I then downloaded the "Standalone Executable" version, typed my seed during the setup and the wallet opened. I don't remember checking the balance, but I do remember deciding to give it a few minutes to update. So, I then went to install other wallets and programs, etc. and totally forgot about the wallet. 6- Then, I restarted my computer after some windows updates or something, got carried away with work, and didn't check my Litecoin wallet. 7- Today, April 17, 2018, I decided to check my wallet and I found out my wallet had been emptied. 8- After trying to figure out how I had been hacked I found out that my wallet was emptied seconds after I installed the wallet on April 12. The hack didn't just stop there, my seed was also used to claim and take my Litecoin Cash.
Because the hack happened exactly at the moment of the Electrum Litecoin wallet was installed and seems like it was an automatic process, I suspect the hack came through the wallet downloaded web page electrumltc.org.
New information/ Add 4/24/2018 6:26 pm East time
Through the Bing search, we typed electrum ltc, and the false page appeared. Electrumltc.org
I had the windows wallets from that site analysed by a programmer. We discovered that it sends the seeds 12 words to this address ip 111.90.149.131. I beg the community for any help . We will be very attentive .. We have been studying how the Litecoins have moved in the Blockchain, and we notice that they were sent to some wallets that, according to Chainz's explorer. belong to Bitfinex and Binance. In the end, the coins arrived to Wallet LTU2cds4aSdXFip9sV4gXphnhxGQjgfjmg. I would like to ask you from my heart to help from the whole community, to publish this information, in hopes that Binance and Bitfinex, recognize the Litecoins as stolen and take actions. From our wallet the coin passed through their systems. I remember when I started in the world of cryptocurrencies, Bitfinex was hacked for an amount of 60million dollars equivalent in Bitcoin, at that moment ...time flies. We are following the Litecoin and organizing all the information to let the cryptocurrency community know about the stolen 2,449 LTC (first 2,399 LTC and then 50 LTC).
In the following direction, a whole discussion on the subject was started ... and there are images related to the theft: https://github.com/pooleelectrum-ltc/issues/176

The Nuts and Bolts of Tether Cartel

I'm not sure this will be kept live, but FWIW if you really want to know more about tether, start here: https://archive.is/lk1lH
In that link you will find explanations to very "strange" things, including the fact that both Erik Vorhees and Roger Ver are defending Bitfinex and Tether (see URL in their names.)
In the link you find that RV invested in several companies that he has influence, such as Kraken, Binance and Bitfinex. The tether cartel is not a bitcoin cartel, it is a multi-altcoin cartel. It is a cycled pump and dump scam around a subset of coins pushed by key-people amidst it, notably: BCH, ETC, DASH, and some more.
Now, to have just a small glimpse of the sheer amount of manipulation going on, it is only funny that in rBTC (the sub that promotes BCH and bashes BTC daily selling the snake-oil "flippening") users have been in constant propaganda against Adam Back and others for talking about Tether. But, "strangely", they up vote RV to heavens even when he clearly defends Tether and invested in the companies behind it. Double standards at its best.
Please don't trust me, I beg you, simply go and read the archived links.

Cryptocurrency and Anonymity: Is Cryptocurrency Truly Anonymous?

Cryptocurrency and Anonymity: Is Cryptocurrency Truly Anonymous?

https://preview.redd.it/gm49w5n7uuv31.jpg?width=4000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=106778e076a092a9f2b0a77ad330ef87005b39cd
Security is the most important aspect of personal finance. If your bank accounts and other personal finance institutions didn’t promise a high level of security, banks wouldn’t be as prominent as they are. That said, security risks abound with these institutions, and there are still ways that unscrupulous characters can get a hold of your personal information. This begs the question, are banks really the best way to hold and use our money?
In today’s society, banks are a must. Cash may be anonymous but it is not an efficient way of making payments or purchases, especially in our predominantly online world. However, this trade-off often comes at the risk of revealing our personal information. Even with safeguards, this personal information is out there, and it can be used to identify us and access our finances and other vital information.
This is why cryptocurrency was so revolutionary when it was first released. Bitcoin was the first digital currency that gave users the ability to handle their own money, all while making it so that they didn’t have to send out personal and financial information in order to make payments or receive funds. It was an exciting time and one that came with great promise.
But is crypto truly anonymous?
Over time, we’ve discovered that most cryptocurrencies are not truly anonymous. Although you will not need to provide details like your name or credit card number in order to transfer money, all transactions are recorded on a public ledger and that information can be traced to users to determine where the money is going and find out who is sending it. Unless you are only using crypto for payments, there is also the additional issue of KYC/AML laws, which require exchanges to collect personal information in order to be able to use the platform.
Put simply, crypto is not truly anonymous and it is not always secure (something that can be clearly seen in the Binance hack that took place earlier this year). However, there are some products out there that do add some extra security and privacy to your transactions.
What Are the More Private Assets on the Market?
There are several products that boast improved privacy practices but the two assets on the market that stand out most and provide the privacy advertised are Monero and Zcash. Monero is a well-known digital asset that uses special ring signatures, confidential transactions, and stealth addresses to mask the trail that the digital currency leaves behind so that the only people who can view the transactions are those involved in them.
Meanwhile, Zcash, a cryptocurrency released two years after Monero, uses a protocol known as zk-SNARKs (Zero-Knowledge Succinct Non-Interactive Argument of Knowledge). Using this model, those with a z-address can send and receive crypto anonymously without having to share information and interact with the other party. However, it should be noted that these transactions are only fully anonymous when they are conducted between two individuals with z addresses. If there is a t-address involved, the transaction is more visible. Still, it is impressive that transactions can be masked.
To answer your question, crypto is not truly anonymous but there are some cryptocurrencies out there that can help you maintain anonymity if you use their network and understand the mechanics behind their platform. If anonymity is your goal, these types of crypto are likely your best bet in keeping your assets and transactions private. Otherwise, you will almost always be able to be tied to your digital transactions.

Getting DigiByte listed on Binance - Progress update

There’s been a bunch of requests lately to get DigiByte listed on Binance. I’m here to confirm today that the hold-up in doing-so is not due to anything in our control.
Let me set the scene for you: We have been listed on approx 2x exchanges per week, every week, for the last few months. This has been in part due to some of the Foundation and some incredibly dedicated community members, again keeping in mind none of this is paid work. I want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the many hours that these people put in, filling out forms, chasing exchanges, getting information and technical details to them.
Then, we find out there are other exchanges that we’re listed on, without our knowledge. Again, that’s fantastic, and because we are a decentralized blockchain with the source-code open and freely available on Github, this means there’s nothing preventing Exchanges from doing this. Because the DigiByte Core Wallet has it’s basis on the Bitcoin Core Wallet, if an Exchange has integrated Bitcoin or Litecoin, they have the technical know-how to integrate DigiByte, and it’s not a difficult task.
Back to Binance.
There is a form that Binance request new sign-ups complete. A pretty standard practice, basically to weed out the time-wasters and brand new ICO’s that aren’t worth anything at all. Totally cool, and so this was filled out earlier last year, and again just one day after Christmas. No problems there.
Since then, Binance have requested the completion of a NDA form. Unfortunately this NDA form is completely not applicable to DigiByte, as we are not a central company, we're not an ICO that raised funds, nor do we take any percentage of each newly minted block as other coins do.
I’m sure you’re all well aware that DigiByte relies on the donation of time of all its Foundation Members, as none of us have been given any DigiByte by anybody to survive on, and once the Foundation has been fully established then down the line decisions will be made regarding how those funds are best spent. For now though, everything is done from the generosity of the hearts of those in the Foundation and community, because we believe in this project, it’s merits, and what it stands for.
So this NDA form, we can’t in good faith sign it, as it’s not applicable to us and legally there’s no point in putting ourselves into a situation where things aren’t clear. However, it begs the question: Why is there an NDA form required at all? Anybody can list DigiByte on their own Exchange, and it doesn’t require us to be made privy to any technical or financial details about a company. They basically download the wallet, as you and I would, integrate it into their Exchange through RPC calls to the digibyted, and that’s about it. The RPC / P2P port details are all in the BitcoinTalk thread. No NDA required, and the listing can be completely done without any input / help from the DigiByte Foundation, community or developers.
It gets better though:
On the application form (Keep in mind this has been completed twice now), there are a number of things such as:
You accept that Binance reserves the right to de-list your coin at any time, for any reason, solely at Binance's discretion. * With the answer options being: - Yes, I agree. - No, no need to hit the submit button.
That’s fair, there is no problem with them de-listing DigiByte if they want, Exchanges do it all the time for coins and ICO’s that have a very small volume. DigiByte however has done a few thousand BTC daily volume just on Bittrex alone (Just using them for comparison). Even with the admirable 0.1% fees that Binance charges, that’s still a few BTC every single day in trading-fees alone, which makes it seem like DigiByte would be a worthwhile investment for them to add on their own accord.
So the problem with us accepting donations from the community as an attempt to pay a listing fee to get on to Binance, they could still de-list DigiByte at any time for no good reason, we have to agree to that before they’ll actually accept the submission. On top of this even if we do pay the “Listing fee”, DigiBytes acceptance on to the Exchange is not guaranteed. We would have no come-back for that, no repercussions, nothing that we can do to prevent it. The CEO even states in his “Tips for getting listed”:
High fee does not guarantee listing, but it may increase your review priority. If you don't want to pay a listing fee, simply put 0. Free market will determine the rest.
It gets better,
On top of the NDA requirement, there is no TOS or similar at Binance. While in my eyes this doesn’t prevent DigiByte from being listed (DigiByte is on a few Exchanges without terms of service thanks to their own initiative), it does mean that this isn’t an ideal scenario. Why is this not an ideal scenario? Because there is no legal recourse for any of the users, no obligation to help them, and if they were to take the “Listing fee”, they can literally just take it and run.
I don’t think it would be very responsible of the DigiByte Foundation to arrange crowd-sourcing the funding, for a venture such as this, where there are absolutely no guarantees at all.
While we admire the enthusiasm of the community and your willingness to assist, the last thing we want is for it to all be for nothing. If the community is really keen on donating to a project, we would recommend donating to the recent development that has been undertaken on the iOS wallet, headed up by a community members company. This will be a big step forwards for DigiByte and fills a gaping hole in our arsenal (See: https://github.com/Racecraft/digibytewallet-ios for donation link at the bottom of the page)
In the mean time, we are still pursuing avenues to get us listed, while maintaining true to our honor and integrity, and doing all that we can to look out for the community.
Besides, Binance would make more than this within a few days worth of listing us, based on trading-fees alone, so the "requirement" of a listing fee just does not make sense.
Edit: Made a poor attempt at fixing the formatting coz apparently I still suck at the markup required here to make it look pretty

spec shitshow #5

one of the few who still reads these?  
I don't have to be PC so let me just say it how it is:
Young naive writer https://twitter.com/AlyssaHertig gets handed narrative by the paper. Writes some stupid shit, gets paid by VC indirectly for protecting the portfolio (because IOTA is a threat to the entire portfolio). Slap a graphic on top of it. Done.
I agree that there is no "grand conspiracy" to damage the IF. It's regular business for coindesk at this point.
https://www.coindesk.com/iota-2-7-billion-cryptocurrency-developers-love-hate/
 
Attacking IOTA on a scientific level ended with self inflicted academic fraud (allegedly), exposing bad actors and destroyed reputations, while educating the IOTA community about the protocol itself. If the media didn't spin the DCI/IOTA incident, it would have been an absolute PR bloodbath for DCI. The new angle is: hurt the IF by making it look like a toxic environment for developers.
That's why month old screenshots are being digged out. This is FUD with surgical precision because developers engaging with the IOTA protocol is one of the more underrated but really fucking important factors.
Thanks to the first steps in making the IF more transparent however, we now know over that 1300+ developers/creators are part of the Ecosystem. https://ecosystem.iota.org
 
Yes, you should boycott Coindesk. No, it's not childish. You should generally avoid all bad press as it's a waste of time.
 
If the first newspaper you’ve read was on an iPad you might not know this: Serious newspapers label articles, in which the writer states his/her opinion on the topic he/she is reporting on, AS SUCH. Those are often referred to as “Opinion Pieces” or a “Comment”. However...
 
Most crypto news sites are simply a vehicle to push undisclosed native advertisement
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Native_advertising
[Native advertising is a type of advertising, mostly online, that matches the form and function of the platform upon which it appears.] ...
[a clear disclosure is deemed necessary when employing native marketing strategy in order to protect the consumer from being deceived] ... [According to Federal Trade Commission, means of disclosure include visual cues, labels, and other techniques.[8]]
 
here is a good example of a native advertisement: https://www.coindesk.com/circle-adds-zcash-crypto-investment-app/
 
If a news outlet is NOT even labeling opinion pieces as such - it’s not worth your time. It will add more confusion than clarity. Because that’s what it’s designed to do.
Let's see if we can spot the difference between professional and fraud:
  1. https://www.finder.com.au/fujitsu-showcases-iota-cryptocurrency-as-new-automation-standard    
  2. https://thenextweb.com/hardfork/2018/04/28/iota-university-college-london-ucl/
see how finder.com.au is very clear about everything? Opinion and disclosure? TNW not so much...
ok, let's never talk about this again! Let's finally move on.
 
We should stay healthy skeptics towards corporate adoption. Friendly reminder the IF exists mainly to push back on corporate agendas.
For all we know, some just do it for the extra likes on twitter because of a #IOTA hashtag. Rarely do corporate SM accounts enjoy this kind of attention.
If you think i'm being anti-corporate libtardish, consider this: Industry 4.0 needs IOTA more than IOTA needs them. https://twitter.com/Schuldensuehnestatus/989738856298659841 Not only to stay competitive but also to not get hacked and shut down by “insert country”. Bosch, Fujitsu and DXC are maybe the first to realize this. SO PLEASE stop begging on social media and tweeting at Elon Musk about IOTA. It’s not a good look.
 
that being said:  
Institutional money and regulation is the hot topic right now. And most likely will be during 2018. BTC Futures showed a recent spike in Volume hinting at smart money flowing in: https://twitter.com/CryptoKinky/status/989569263383011328 (dont judge me for my resources i cant afford nice looking charts)
There are several news articles about WS traders moving to crypto and so on. Looks like things are starting to get rolling in the institutional world, as infrastructure is being set up.
Contrary to popular tinfoilery belief (aka. "The Cartel" Medium Article, that all of Bitcoin is 100% manipulated already based on future contracts), futures had relatively small volume compared to the global btc volume - most likely not important enough to justify manipulation of the entire market.
https://bitcoinaverage.com/en/bitcoin-price/btc-to-usd (global volume)
 
Even the SEC Chairman Jay Clayton stated that futures market is "quite small" in his public statement before the february hearing:
https://www.cftc.gov/PressRoom/SpeechesTestimony/opagiancarlo37
It is important to put the new Bitcoin futures market in perspective. It is quite small with open interest at the CME of 6,695 bitcoin14 and at Cboe Futures Exchange (Cboe) of 5,569 bitcoin (as of Feb. 2, 2018). At a price of approximately $7,700 per Bitcoin,15 this represents a notional amount of about $94 million.
 
If you believe in a paradigm shift, this means we are still early.
 
Recent regulatory voices and twitter drama led to this piece by https://coincenter.org/entry/no-ether-is-not-a-security
Why is this important? Companies in the US most likely are patient about making an investment into any crypto token as there is regulatory uncertainty.
DXC TECHNOLOGY COMPANY, showcased a PoC with IOTA. At Q4 in december, DXC has stated:
213 Million in Net cash provided by (used in) investing activities. https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgadata/1688568/000168856818000007/dxc1231201710-q.htm
Just some food for thought:
If you are already spending opportunity cost on IOTA, why wouldn't you leverage that with the token. Bosch invested into the token as well, most likely because there is more regulatory certainty in germany. Fujitsu wants to roll out IOTA as an industry standard (as it seems). This is not your regular Shitcoin. There is a reason dumb money is called dumb. Last time i check Verge had 10x the volume on binance compared to IOTA.
 
There are no fundamentals yet in evaluation, it’s purely speculative - but with more institutions moving into the space this might change. As such, CCs with industrial use could likely see a reevaluation. But, looking in from the outside, there seem to be some hurdles.
this twitter account is one of the more resourceful ones, he lets out some numbers to boost his SM traction (god bless him) https://twitter.com/joel_john95
as outsiders, this will be an extremely helpful resource. He tweeted out a quarterly report https://medium.com/outlier-ventures-io/state-of-blockchains-q1-2018-1efe284572c1
he writes: Over $1.8 billion has been invested into firms working with the blockchain ecosystem through corporate venture capital to date.
That’s not that much. Is it. For the entire ecosystem? Friendly reminder snapchat, after a 20% fall, is a 15 billion company. Just to get some perspective.
 
Especially if you consider the crypto market is still in the hands of leveraged daytraders on bitmex and whales, who got big stacks in a coin early on.
Imagine you want to invest 3M into IOTA as a CVC, you would’t spin up Binance and hit marketorder. You contact the IF and see if you can buy some, or outlier ventures might want to part with some, or even the founders i imagine hold quite a substantial amount.
I often see people asking for more exchanges - that's kinda missing the point. What you want at this point is more institutional interest. That's the kind of demand we want. Thats what you would call "organic growth" i guess.
Ripple holders, thinking a coinbase listening would make XRP go to $10, fail understand that Ripple itself holds a substantial amount of tokens where VCs can go and buy in bulk. And that’s why XRP is such a Shitcoin in the first place.
 
Cool thing about open ledgers is that you can look at them. Go figure. https://arewedecentralizedyet.com/
 
Ripple and XLM look extremely bad with over 90% of coins held in the top 100 addresses (shitcoins confirmed). TRX and EOS don’t even have a mainnet yet to really track it - so you can imagine the numbers are likely shit too. ADA is looking way better than IOTA in terms of wealth distribution. But 60% for whales, IF and Founders is probably better than what most projects can show for.
Thing is, the small guys got in on crypto first. Not the banks, not a selected silicon valley investor boisclub either. While this is good for us, it's a nightmare for investment banks and such.
JPMorgan admitted that in their “BTC Bible” saying:
Ownership is highly concentrated. The opportunity set around direct CC trading appears relatively limited for banks
(Think about that for a second.)
CVC investing into the token could be, in my speculative opinion, the most likely catalyst for the price of IOTA, as its industrial adoption can build a synergy for entire sectors. As the main argument for Bitcoin is price uncorrelation to legacy assets, IOTA might be an interesting pick for the smart money, as it could be one of the few CCs with actual fundamental impact on different industry sectors. Something Blockchain, after 10 years, has failed to do.
Let me summarize because i was a bit all over the place. Things i will look for going forward:
  1. Institutional infrastructure is being built as we speak as regulations get more clear
  2. 2018 might see the highest investments into the blockchain ecosphere
  3. Financial talent from legacy market is switching to crypto
  4. Retail investors are the early adopters, not exclusive silicon valley boiclubs
  5. Liquidity is really bad, its hard to buy a lot of crypto for institutions
  6. The real FOMO and bubble might come with the “smart” money
  7. IF addressing wealth distribution and being more transparent
(i do not have a finance background as you can see and i write these to offer some interesting links and resources you might find useful in your own research.)

The Enlightenment of the Bitcoin Time Traveler.

I made this for fun. A play on The Tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise.
Did you ever hear the story of the Bitcoin Time Traveler? I thought not. It’s not a story the world would tell you. It’s a Bitcoin legend.
The Bitcoin Time Traveler was a traveler from 2028, so powerful and so wise he could use Quantum Tunneling to submit messages to a past Reddit from the future. He had such a knowledge of the future that he wanted to share with everyone, the price of Bitcoin, where it stands in their society, and information about other cryptos.
Bitcoin: The Internet of Money, is a pathway to riches and financial freedom, many consider to be unnatural. He answered questions, but was careful about the information provided, the only thing he was afraid of was causing changes to timelines, which eventually, of course, may or may not happen.
Unfortunately, he deleted his Reddit account, but the conversation(s) were archived, then he went back to his time in 2028. Ironic. He could inform others about Bitcoin and its future, but couldn't reveal anything for fear of changes to Bitcoin's timeline.

NANO, Buy or Sell?

Seriously, I'm a bit worried about the price and the lack of momentum from anywhere, plus the chat room is looking a bit dim... There has not been a single trading day where NANO as gone up on Binance, every day it goes down. Also, the BitGrail fiasco caused chaos and the rebrand from RaiBlocks to NANO fizzled. SO this all begs the question, do I cash back out to BTC and hold Bitcoin instead, or what? Please advise.

Bitcoin Closes Weekly Candle Above $8,400, Stage Set For $9,600 Push

Bitcoin Closes Weekly Candle Above $8,400, Stage Set For $9,600 Push
https://preview.redd.it/rwaeoh23hp031.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=dbf21b381bd2bba90d52409ad29276edcd115c6b
After breaking from $8,000’s grip on Sunday, Bitcoin (BTC) skyrocketed to $8,750 in a jaw-dropping move. While the bullish momentum has slowed for the time being, with BTC beginning to consolidate in the short-term around $8,700, some are sure that the cryptocurrency market will continue to print higher as the week elapses.

Bitcoin Closes Above $8,400

Earlier today, BTC suddenly broke over, shooting past $8,200, $8,400, and $8,600 in rapid succession. Initially, though, some were wary that this was a fakeout, designed to trap bulls into thinking there was going to be a strong weekly close above $8,400. $8,400 is, of course, where this market topped in a bear market rally in mid-2018, and where BTC double topped in early-May.
The thing is, there was a chance that Bitcoin was going to rapidly scale back just as fast as it jumped up.
But, just minutes ago, Bitcoin’s weekly candle closed at midnight (UTC time zone), marking a strong performance over the past week. As analyst Nick Cote quipped on Twitter in response to this close, “that weekly print.” According to LiveCoinWatch, Bitcoin is up 6.75% on the week.
https://preview.redd.it/dz3739bvgp031.png?width=779&format=png&auto=webp&s=1f5cf07de6a58593c6b366fa776491e3d064ee20
So what’s next? Well, now that the weekly candle has closed decidedly bullish, some are adamant that anywhere to $9,600 to $10,000 for BTC is in the cards. Josh Rager, a team member at Level and a popular analyst, recently noted that now that the close was strong, he fully expects for a move to $9,600 to come to fruition. As he wrote in a recent tweet: “Goodbye meme triangle, hello $9k+ targets. Bitcoin could cool off, run sideways but IMO will continue to move up over $9k.”
Some have been a tad more optimistic. Adamant Capital’s Tuur Demeester exclaimed last week that Bitcoin continues to hold in a bullish parabola, which has acted as support for BTC since December 13th’s jaw-dropping bottom.

In fact, the asset touched the parabola in February, late-March, early-April (to kick off the current rally), throughout early-May, and just last week. If this trend continues, the Adamant representative suggests that Bitcoin could rally by 40% — around $3,000 — from current levels to hit $11,000 by early-June. This begs the question — is crypto winter finally over?
According to Fundstrat Global Advisors’ Tom Lee, this might just be the case. In a recent Twitter post, the Fundstrat head of research gave 13 reasons why the bear market is over.
Some of these important reasons include the fact that Bitcoin quickly returned to $8,000 after the $1,700 dump on Bitstamp; the Bitcoin Misery Index passing above 89, a sign only seen in bull markets; a grow in on-chain activity and volumes, which historically have preceded rallies; and the fact that Bitcoin’s chart recently saw a bullish “golden cross” pattern” while BTC moved above its 200-day moving average in spectacular fashion.

An Optimistic Insight (which we desperately need.)

Listen...
Yes, times are tough right now. 2018 hasn't been the year of the bull we all expected it to be. Our rocket ship to the moon is seemingly sputtering, running out of oxygen and fuel. It's been a quarter where of all of us are desperately clutching our portfolios, while we watch our coins dip deeper and deeper into the sea of blood red. 50... 60... 70... 80 percent losses. FUD is at an all-time high. Regulations are scary. Every single exchange is being hacked these days. Some of us have ignored it, turned off the ol' crypto machine, and stepped away in the "Pursuit of HODLING". Some of us have failed that journey because we took out 2nd mortgages and delved into seriously unpayable credit card debt to "get rich quick" with this thing that was supposed to take off to the moon overnight. Dollar cost averaging? TTM Squeezes? Never heard of those, but I bought Bitcoin at 20k, where are my returns? (I'd put a /s, but there is probably someone reading this who is in this position.)
However, I promised an "optimistic insight" here. The pure, unadulterated fact is that we, as a community of equal-part investor, equal-part financial revolution enthusiast, needed this purge to happen. The market (broadly speaking), once fueled by blind optimism and hope, viewed Bitcoin as nothing more than a "not-so-well-kept" secret lottery ticket, and nothing more. Ask a friend or relative (one of which you don't incessantly complain to that Cardano hasn't moved in weeks) and they likely think of Bitcoin as a "get rich quick scheme" where blockchains and Binance are novel buzzwords, and people are losing their houses because they believed Bitcoin was the answer. Just one look at the YouTube comments on most crypto-related videos, and you see that mentality manifest itself:
"Didn't Bitcoin die in 2017?" "Bitcoin was a bubble." "whoa.. Is Bitcoin the new Crossfit?" <-- literally just found this. Pure gold.
So where is this "optimistic insight"?
We know better. That's literally it. We're smarter more informed than the average public of headline reading, bite-sized news digesting simpletons know-it-alls. They couldn't care less about reading into blockchain technology, TPS advancements, or the "thrill" of finding out what the SEC will classify our funds as. We are armed with so many resources right now to DYOR, but the problem is we're looking in the same places that the average Joe gets his news. Death and destruction everywhere. Investors lay as carnage, wasted to the beast of the bear market. Cointelegraph is literally Buzzfeed/TMZ for crypto. Cancerous. There is so, so, so, so, so much more to be excited about in the future for this technology. We all know it - but the public has no idea. Yet.
Whether you're here lurking for financial advice, or perhaps you're the creator of insert your coin's name here (Hi, Charlie!) We all desperately want to see this bear market turn around. However, it's important to keep in mind what is in our control and what isn't. 99% of us (if not 100%) don't own nearly enough of the market to decide its fate - and there's a certain sense of relief to knowing that it is, in every fiscal sense, completely out of our hands. What is in our control, is finding out what our coins and tokens are up to, getting excited, getting people excited about the projects that they're undertaking. Don't be the "I-told-you-so" crypto-know-it-all. Be an evangelist for the great things we're doing. Partnerships are being made almost daily at this point. Take a good, hard look at your portfolio and adjust accordingly - because I promise you, when this bear market is over, the coins that continued to persevere and move forward and get the people pumped about their advancements will make the 2017 bull run look like child's play. This technology is far too important for the future of our world for it not to. I'm not saying we're going to topple the governments, banks are going to surrender to crypto and claim insolvency, beg us crypto-holders for forgiveness... etc, you get the picture. That may be your focal reason for investing - but it's not the time for that. Right now, blockchain technology is the right idea at the wrong time - and that's fine. If you're reading this at any point in 2018, congrats. You're still here as an early adopter. Yes, it may not seem this way during the hellacious bear run we've come across - but soak up every discount you can find. They won't last long.
The future is only waiting for the "big" players to realize the revolution we are starting, but that starts with us realistically embracing what we're endorsing. A future exists where walking into Walmart or Starbucks and paying with insert your favorite coin here is a reality. It may seem far away, but that's the whole point of being an early adopter. Embody the change you want to see in the world.
The returns will follow shortly thereafter.
tl;dr - don't worry, be happy and DYOR.

Now you can learn how to create and develop your own ICO and STO, how to market your campaign and make it super successful. Who are cryptocurrency investors? What drives people to invest in cryptocurrency? Read the extract of the UBAI lesson to get all the answers.
Introduction to the Investors §2
In 2017, the total cryptocurrency market capitalization was approaching $850B which begs the question:
Why are investors turning to cryptocurrencies?
A survey by Blockchain Capital indicated that at least 30% of millennials would rather invest in bitcoin than invest in traditional stocks. Cryptocurrency investors, like traditional investors, expect a return at least proportionate to the risk they take. Due to the fundamental lack of regulation, incredible volatility and astronomical relative risk, many cryptocurrency investors expect to earn meteoric returns. Returns in the ranges of multiples from 200% to 1000%.
Let us first begin by examining the kinds of people who invest in cryptocurrency, and then let’s see the reasons why each of them is investing in this relatively new market.
Types of Investors
The “Newbie” Cryptocurrency Investor
This investor is just starting out. They probably have not had any significant experience in any form of investing before and bitcoin is their first experience. They have heard about people making incredible returns from cryptocurrency investing, or some aspect of the entire blockchain and crypto revolution attracts them, and they decide they want to invest too.
Unfortunately, most of the newbie investors will end up losing their money, primarily because of one specific misconception; they think cryptocurrency investing is an easy way to make huge profits. “ “Types of Investors §2
“Gambler” or “Get Rich Quick” Investor
This is the second class of cryptocurrency investor, and is actually not really an investor at all.
This type of person is out to make a fortune as fast as possible. They will fall for whatever sweet-sounding scheme they hear. They love ideas that promise to double or triple their investment quickly. Like the Newbie, they do not understand how cryptocurrencies work, and they don’t care. The difference between this kind of investor and the successful individual or professional investor is that the gambler does not care about the management of risk, or about the timing of trades.
They place their money on the table, and they hope it will make a good return. They are gambling rather than creating an investment thesis and executing a well-thought out strategy. They might even have an infectious positive attitude, but unfortunately it is not backed by knowledge or the due diligence required to be a successful investor.
A good example of this style of thinking, outside of cryptocurrency, is high yield investment plans (HYIPs) that promise to multiply an investors capital by a certain factor. This is not to say that all HYIP programs are scams, but a good number of them are. Most importantly, the investors who flock into such plans have similar characteristics to that of the Get Rich Quick investor in that they will not take the time to learn about the field in which they are investing. They are just looking for fast money and an overnight success. “ “Types of Investors §3
Short Term Traders (Day/Swing Traders)
Short term traders must, without a doubt, be the most knowledgeable investors if they are going to succeed at their chosen profession. They have, or they should have, studied the art and science of trading more thoroughly than other people. This is the kind of investor who has taken the time to learn about cryptocurrencies and the markets on which they trade. Short term traders create deliberate and timed strategies in an attempt to profit from fast market movements. Maybe many of the short term traders started off as Newbies, but these are the individuals who took the time and effort to learn about the market. They wanted to know what they were doing. These are the people who survived and thrived to grow into the type of trader that they want to be.
Interestingly, the Day Trader does not attach emotion to any given coin. They do not need to believe in the sustainability/whitepapevision/road map, etc. of the project they are buying into at any particular time. They just need to be confident about the direction and timing of the potential price movement of the coin. “ “Types of Investors §4
Long Term Investors/ Hodlers
A great majority of successful cryptocurrency investors can be most properly classified as Long Term Investors, or HODLers in true crypto terminology. These are investors who understand quite a bit about cryptocurrency and blockchain technology and believe in the sustainability of the coins in which they are investing.
Think of the first few investors who bought bitcoin in the early days and years, when it was still deep under the radar for most people. These are the people who believed in the blockchain and cryptocurrency revolution. They didn’t sell their bitcoin for fast profit, although they had many chances to do so. They knew what they were doing, holding for the long term. These early investors and HODLers enjoyed astronomical growth all the way up to 2016 and 2017. But to be a long-term holder despite all the bad news and negative factors surrounding this brand new asset class, they must have really believed that bitcoin and the blockchain were going to change the world. This belief can only be established through study and research about the blockchain industry and the specific currencies and tokens in which you are going to invest.
Follow up and learn more on www.ubai.co!” “Types of Investors §5
Sophisticated/Professional Investors
These are experts in cryptocurrency investing. They most likely have a background in other forms of trading and investing, such as in stocks, bonds or options etc. They may also be earning fees by investing or managing money for other people.
The Iconomi fund managers are a good example. Each Fund Manager manages an array of digital assets. Investors might choose Iconomi because it offers a platform for the investor to allocate funds to specific fund managers, with the ability to swap between managers instantly if the investor desires to do so.
Each fund manager selects a number of coins in which they wish to trade or invest, with specified time horizons, short or long term. Investors can buy into the array of mutually held coins. This allows investors to utilize the knowledge and experience of professional fund managers to trade an allocated pool of capital, hopefully generating returns greater than the individual investor would be able to produce on his own.
The fund managers are motivated by the fees and commissions they earn, and perhaps a performance-linked bonus. You can certainly be properly classified as a Sophisticated Investor without any need to be a fund manager for other peoples’ money. But a professional fund manager has the ability to trade with a larger pool of capital, manage complicated risk, and diversify trading strategy to generate various streams of income. “ “Between Countries
A particular country’s participation in cryptocurrencies largely has to do with the legal regulations about blockchain projects and crypto currency investment in that jurisdiction.
When China banned the use of cryptocurrency, most Chinese nationals had to withdraw their investments. Many other countries have also placed bans on the use or trade of cryptocurrencies. Countries like Japan that have allowed the use of cryptocurrencies have witnessed a significant rise in cryptocurrency investments as a result. Japan and South Korea are home to several high-traffic cryptocurrency exchanges, meaning that a notable proportion of their population is investing in cryptocurrencies.
Another way to look at cryptocurrency investment demographics is to look at the bitcoin ATMs present in each country. The United States of America is the leading country, followed by Canada and then the United Kingdom.
According to a report by Google trends, the five top countries interested in bitcoin are: South Africa, Slovenia, Nigeria, Colombia and Bolivia.
Remember, cryptocurrency demographics can be a little tricky due to the anonymity involved. Many people may be afraid to participate in surveys, especially when their governments have placed legal restrictions on cryptocurrency investing.
The main point the research seems to validate is that the demographics of the cryptocurrency investor base is diverse. While the average investor may be a white or Asian male between the ages of 26-30 with at least a university degree, the entire investor base is so much larger than that. Many big investors are likely to be significantly older, and have connections and businesses in the traditional economy as well. “ “Notable Investors in Cryptocurrency
While many people have made fortunes from cryptocurrency investing, a handful of them stand out as being particularly remarkable. We will take a more detailed look at some of the biggest investment success stories to see how they did it and learn about their investing strategy.
The Winklevoss Twins
After being awarded their settlement from the lawsuit against Facebook, the Winklevoss twins decided to invest a significant portion of their money in Bitcoin. They invested $11million of the $65million they received. At that time, the price of a single bitcoin was about $120.
This high-risk investment paid off handsomely and they became the first publicly known Bitcoin Billionaires, perhaps owning more than 1% of the total bitcoin in circulation. In an interview with Financial Times in 2016, the twins jointly said that they consider “Bitcoin as potentially the greatest social network because it is designed to transfer value over the internet”. They also pointed out that compared to gold, bitcoin has equal or greater foundational traits of scarcity and portability. “ “Notable Investors in Cryptocurrency §2
Michael Novogratz
A self-made billionaire ex-Goldman Sachs investment banker, Novogratz has invested more than 30% of his fortune in cryptocurrency. In 2015, he announced a $500million cryptocurrency hedge fund, including $150million of his own money. Novogratz believes that “the blockchain, the computer code that underpins all cryptocurrencies, will reshape finance, just as the internet reshaped communication”.
The investment thesis of Mr. Novogratz is similar to that of the Winklevoss twins. He has taken and maintains a long-term position while he trades in and out of short term moves, based on his fundamental belief in the potential and likely application of the underlying blockchain technology. By starting an investment fund in addition to his other cryptocurrency related ventures, he is demonstrating a strong fundamental grasp of the technology, including its applicability and impact across so many industries. Slide
Barry Silbert
In December 2014 after the US Marshal’s office seized 50,000 bitcoins from the Silk Road, Barry Silbert purchased just 2,000 of those bitcoins at $350 per coin. A few years later of course, those coins were worth millions of dollars.
Barry is the founder and CEO of the Digital Currency Group (DCG) a cryptocurrency investment firm. Barry also made significant profits from Ethereum Classic, purchasing the coin in its very first days. He has invested in over 75 bitcoin related companies, including CoinDesk. As founder of the Digital Currency Group, Barry endeavors to support bitcoin and blockchain companies and accelerate the development of the global financial system. “ “Directly through Exchanges
Step One: Register on a reputable cryptocurrency exchange
To start investing, you first need to register on a reputable cryptocurrency exchange where you can buy bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Binance is a good exchange to use in this lesson. While it may or may not be the best, it is currently the largest, and they provide a very supportive layout and customer service department.
You should remember, to buy most altcoins (cryptocurrencies other than bitcoin), you specifically need to use an exchange like Coinbase or Kraken that allows you to convert fiat currency into cryptocurrency. From there, if you want to trade altcoins not listed on that exchange, you will have to transfer your BTC or ETH to a larger exchange like Binance, and buy the altcoin you want, using whichever trading pair that is best suited (BTC and ETH pairs are most common).
As we have already explained, if you are buying Bitcoin or any cryptocurrencies, you should invest in a wallet to safely store your coins. It is not advisable to store your BTC or other crypto on the exchanges for too long, due to hacking and other risks. “ “Directly through Exchanges
Step Two: Determine your Strategy
There are different ways to invest. You need to find a strategy that works for you and your specific set of skills. The value of a cryptocurrency is not defined by a formula or something out a textbook. If everyone was able to calculate the actual value of a share of stock, for example, or a bond, or other tradeable asset, then the price on an open market exchange would never move. Buyers and sellers would know exactly how much the asset is worth, so there would be no reason to sell lower or buy higher than the actual value.
You need to come up with your own ideas and strategies to take advantage of market moves. Sometimes you will have a position that is contrary to the general market. Other times you might be trading in agreement with a majority of other market participants. Investors are basically separable into one of two groups of thinkers. Contrarian investors go against the crowd, swimming against the current; Momentum investors ride the wave feeling secure in the majority. Being different can be good or it can be bad. You do not always want to necessarily get caught up in the most crowded trade. “ “Things to keep in Mind
Bitcoin Futures
We need to mention the bitcoin futures market as another potential way to invest. Toward the close of 2017, Bitcoin started trading on two fully recognized and well-established futures markets; the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange CME.
The key quote from the exchanges was “because the futures can be traded on regulated markets, it will attract investors, making the market liquid, stabilizing prices and it will not suffer from low transaction speeds of Bitcoin Exchanges.”
For a risk averse investor, this offers a safer entry into cryptocurrency investing. A futures contract commits its owner to buy or sell the underlying asset, BTC, at a set price, and at a set date in the future. The investor in the futures contract does not actually own the underlying asset, but rather is trading on fluctuations in the price of the asset over a certain timeframe, as specified in the futures contract. “ “Things to keep in Mind §2
Common Pitfalls We cannot conclude this lesson without one more look at the common pitfalls a new cryptocurrency investor should avoid.
The problem areas are: -Falling for scams by failing to carry out due diligence. -Relying solely upon self-acclaimed crypto gurus and experts. If you want to trade, you must understand how to read news and charts for yourself. -Too much Greed. Not taking profit when you should. It is better to take a 20% gain, than wait for a 100% gain, only to lose it all in the end. -Lacking an investment strategy or exit plan. -Not sticking to your investment plan or strategy. -Allowing emotions to rule your decisions. Chasing your losses. -Investing what you cannot afford to lose.
And finally, some time-tested wisdom from Wall Street: Bulls make money. Bears make money. Pigs get slaughtered every time. (Don’t be greedy!)
We cannot overemphasize the risk involved in cryptocurrency investing. The potential to make huge gains over a short period of time does not come without risk. There is no doubt that significant players in the global financial markets are entering the cryptocurrency markets too. We are likely to witness more and more government authorities trying to regulate cryptocurrencies, hopefully to the overall benefit of a healthy market. It seems safe to say we will see cryptocurrencies become more mainstream due to the intense interest from the traditional financial industry and institutional investing community all over the world.

why I will not vote on binance

hey, just wanted to let you know what I feel about binance. first of all, raiblocks is already a HUGE coin. and I dont like the fact that binance tries to make more money by making us pay in order to vote
second of all : if we will win the vote, they will ask raiblocks dev team for million dollars, and insider information in order to get raiblocks listed.
those greedy bastards make me furious, we are a big community.. if they dont want to list us then they lose. im sure satoshi nakamoto didnt pay binance to list bitcoin, they found it profitable.
I dont care that the price MIGHT increase because of the listing on binance, that is too much greed by this stupid company. and soon rai exchange will be ready. who even needs them? lets give them a big middle finger as a community, if they dont want raiblocks they better not list it. in 1 month they will beg to list us, look how fast we are growing.

Hello, i don't know who are you, but i am trying to contact you

Hello,
I lost my amount of btc (~0.69) because of scam chrome extension (named binance ticker) that i've installed from google store. Now, this extension is not available (maybe deleted by you). It replaced my btc wallet address to 1Ckpd3xCjAdFWu9Wa9TxjJ2hgMKXCNajGF and all my deposit was sent to this wallet. Please give my money back, i've sold my precious thing to exchange it to bitcoin :(
My wallet is 1Lj1Qp3d4egXDoXSvkE4gzr2bE7hpyHq5S. Please put yourself in my place and try to understand :(
P.S. I am not trying to beg from other persons, i need only recover my stolen amount from that guy. I hope this page will be indexed by google and the thief can read my message.
