Dessa forma ele é mais resistente a inflações selvagens e bancos corruptos. Com o Bitcoin, você pode ser seu próprio banco.

Adult entertainment trough Devil´s Dragon Token

Adult entertainment trough Devil´s Dragon Token
Hello everyone, In this post I would like to talk about some of the DDGN Token features and company achievements.
https://preview.redd.it/of2xxl7gxtg51.png?width=640&format=png&auto=webp&s=b2ed2316a60511260102feb5f1a77750ff0c2c58
The company aims to revolutionize adult entertainment trough blockchain innovations presenting the opportunity to the user to be an active participant in this field using the Ecosystem. DEVIL´S DRAGON TOKEN is fully decentralized autonomous and encrypted. It offers the option to share, publish, and earn through selling, trading, exchanging, and utilizing the features of its ecosystem. A unique multi-use cryptocurrency with many active sites bringing new business models to life and disrupting the high set price of contemporary adult entertainment.

The ways to earn will be further possible by rewards and revenue sharing, live broadcasts, moderating content for the approval or disapproval of forum posts, mining for content, and arranging unused hard disk space. These are set just at the start point. The potential of the new features immense.

My Honest Review about "AVAX Project"

NOTE: This is a reshared from my original article here: https://steemit.com/ico/@etherium24/my-honest-review-about-avax-project
So Ive just learn about AVAX project few weeks actually. Of course as a guy who curious about new blockchain project. I must say I needed some background check and research about them. You can always spot a difference from a previous or old project to a new one. What we can actually see is that there a new features, improved mechanism, and faster integration on new projects. Is that true? Of course it is, but not applied for all. Not all ICO projects are good and some of them have been seen replicating and imitating major projects such as ethereum or popular one.
In terms of technology and integration we cant say AVAX has no match for popular and big projects. Take a look on this comparison image Ive seen of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tendermint and Avax.
By the way, just grab this photo from ICO drops. Very interesting chart comparison. The category set was not biased and a factor on checking its capabilities like: Transaction throughput, which AVAX shows exemplary record of 4,500 tps. Also its quite noticing the safety threshold of above 80% indeed AVAX doing a great security measures. Im not gonna prolonged this but for me this is one of the best ICO even with the Covid19 situation. Rare to find a gem on a seas of peculiar projects.
Regarding their token sale there are three options for every investors to choose from and I am really confuse which one to pick. Im not a big time investor and only have ample amount to put up. But of course, I will consider all best chance to preserve this project interest. You see as a trader, I want to maximize my portfolio, so definitely I will take Option B, to see how it goes on market. But as an investor I will use that to analyze trades and accumulate AVAX by doing a good market trades which includes buy at low set price and sell at high price until I accumulate avax coins enough to be a validator. But that's tough dream.
Now Im both crypto enthusiast guy, trader and investor. So its not that easy to lay off your money on the table without seeing a potential to a project your investing. I'm gonna be honest, I planned to invest on AVAX token sale but due to circumstances and attack om their site the sale was cancelled and move to a new date. July 15th to be exact. Im all set for the sale, and this happened but for me I never blamed any of the team. There is a problem occured and of course improving its implementation woulf always be good especially if its risk the security of investors. Props for the team for that. Now few hours left before that as of this writing and I would like you to check also if this project is worth or not your time and money. Just sharing my view as a crypto enthusiast.
Now if you want to follow the project you can visit them on their site and social media attached below:

Minerium Coin - Meet a new SHA256 cryptocurrency

Minerium Coin - Meet a new SHA256 cryptocurrency

Minerium is a mineable SHA256 crypto currency, a coin which use the bitcoin protocol and blockchain technology

https://mineriumcoin.com/


https://preview.redd.it/cx8eoh1cvov41.png?width=640&format=png&auto=webp&s=84e37e9f629d72f79413c0ed7baa10ee398c2fa0

Minerium coin - SHA256 cryptocurrency

Minerium Coin's goal is to be implemented for real-life use. Minerium is not just a coin, it is a cryptocurrency.
First, we are aiming to increase its value, then to get a stable price, which will happen at the end of the block rewards process in 2 years. A minimal value of 1000 Satoshis (0.00001000 BTC) is the ideal and what we will achieve.
This is why we are first focusing on an investment platform which will allow you to use Minerium to buy online. A partnership with Amazon, Newegg and Netflix, for example.
We realized that many projects have a too long mining process lasting over several years which give fewer chances to the new miners to make profits.
The new SuperDay function is the best remedy for this situation, giving a chance to everyone during the mining process. See the chart - Block_Rewards - for more details about this specifically.

Why Cryptocurrencies like Minerium is so Important?


https://preview.redd.it/d151p98fvov41.png?width=640&format=png&auto=webp&s=82d5be266983d599092da84669d1848b2abb72d2

People will realize that cryptocurrency is not a "bubble"; instead, it is a channel for massive unmet demand for private, sound money. Keynesian fear mongering regarding "evil deflation" will be proven wrong as the truism that people must spend money to live, even deflationary money, becomes obvious. Traditional banks will begin to crumble, much like J.C. Penny and Sears under the threat of Amazon. To survive, they will rely on customers who are late-adopters and laggards, among the very last to abandon the fiat system. Crypto-banks will begin to dominate. They will be global rather than national. Most people will trust their private keys to these banks, realizing that there is no perfectly secure way to store them. Convenience and "good enough" security will be the dominant paradigm. A small minority of die-hard users will continue to insist on storing their own private keys and signing their own transactions, much like a few people today insist on compiling their own Linux kernel or building their own PC. Crypto-banks will be thought of as just that - banks, not "exchanges." The fact that they provide currency exchange services will thought of as an obvious and necessary feature of any banking system. There will be no government-backed "FDIC" for crypto-banks. However, banks will compete on security, among other features, giving rise to private insurance that protects deposits. Banks will provide traditional savings-and-loan services, denominated in cryptocurrency.

https://preview.redd.it/89ff2g8gvov41.png?width=640&format=png&auto=webp&s=97b705a69966e3b121067db7d0ecf2f12cff5c98

Minerium over the years:

The reward's period lasts 730 days (2 years). After this, the miners will be compensated by the rewards of the transactions fees.
Compared to Bitcoin, Minerium has the capacity to adjust its difficulty much faster at every 3 blocks. Its ratio "max PoW/difficulty" is set up to never go very high on the mining difficulty, to avoid the blockchain being stuck and struggling for hours or days. This will allow a very fluid circulation of the blocks on the network and make a real-life use of Minerium.
For example, anyone can easily help the blockchain with a single CPU, or a cellphone and be rewarded with the mining fees. This would be a great income as the coin's value at this time will make it be worth for the very low ratio electricity/mining cost.
The remaining coins that will not be bought during the Presale period (which ends on the 1st of May) will be burnt by being thrown into a river.
Everything will be recorded in an uncut video. Its private key will be unknown to everyone, even the team. The public wallet address will be available to anyone (by block explorer or the cli-command in the wallet) and you will have access to it at any time to verify that no coins will ever be spent.
The goal is to have fewer coins in circulation. This will increase its value, giving less control to one person or a group in the market.

Minerium is a cryptocurrency that has to be used and developed by and for the people.

To survive, they will rely on customers who are late-adopters and laggards, among the very last to abandon the fiat system. Crypto-banks will begin to dominate. They will be global rather than national. Most people will trust their private keys to these banks, realizing that there is no perfectly secure way to store them. Convenience and "good enough" security will be the dominant paradigm. A small minority of die-hard users will continue to insist on storing their own private keys and signing their own transactions, much like a few people today insist on compiling their own Linux kernel or building their own PC. Crypto-banks will be thought of as just that - banks, not "exchanges." The fact that they provide currency exchange services will thought of as an obvious and necessary feature of any banking system. There will be no government-backed "FDIC" for crypto-banks. However, banks will compete on security, among other features, giving rise to private insurance that protects deposits. Banks will provide traditional savings-and-loan services, denominated in cryptocurrency.

Minerium over the years:

The reward's period lasts 730 days (2 years). After this, the miners will be compensated by the rewards of the transactions fees.
Compared to Bitcoin, Minerium has the capacity to adjust its difficulty much faster at every 3 blocks. Its ratio "max PoW/difficulty" is set up to never go very high on the mining difficulty, to avoid the blockchain being stuck and struggling for hours or days. This will allow a very fluid circulation of the blocks on the network and make a real-life use of Minerium.
For example, anyone can easily help the blockchain with a single CPU, or a cellphone and be rewarded with the mining fees. This would be a great income as the coin's value at this time will make it be worth for the very low ratio electricity/mining cost.
The remaining coins that will not be bought during the Presale period (which ends on the 1st of May) will be burnt by being thrown into a river.
Everything will be recorded in an uncut video. Its private key will be unknown to everyone, even the team. The public wallet address will be available to anyone (by block explorer or the cli-command in the wallet) and you will have access to it at any time to verify that no coins will ever be spent.
The goal is to have fewer coins in circulation. This will increase its value, giving less control to one person or a group in the market.

Minerium is a cryptocurrency that has to be used and developed by and for the people.

Introducing the 310 BTC Bitcoin Challenge

Not too long ago Bitcoin wasn't worth much (USD wise) but as an early adopter I was there! Mining them on my desktop computer on a daily basis. At a later point in time I even bought more, a lot more. This was my best investment ever!

My Bitcoins quickly became a treasure chest and while I don't want to provide numbers I can tell you that Bitcoin changed my life for good. On top of that, bitcoin airdrops were created. I thought it would be nice to give those away to someone else in the universe, as I don't need them. Just for fun. ( In the end I got them for free too ).

Thinking about ideas on how to do this I finally created a bitcoin challenge where BTC is to be found, hidden in a digital picture. I have to admit it wasn't as easy as I projected and I had to exchange all airdrops for BTC. While this wasn't a easy process for all of them, creating the picture was the most difficult since I'm not a artist myself.

Today, finally, I can announce the 310 BTC Bitcoin Challenge.
Yes, that's correct, there's 310 BTC hidden in the picture.

Head over to https://bitcoinchallenge.codes/ for more details.

There are 3 other connected addresses containing 0.31, 0.2 and 0.1 BTC respectively.

UPDATES:
- Oct 4 2018: Someone is right on track and moved the funds from the 0.1 BTC address.
A guy called "Lustre" told me he managed to decode it. Good job!
- Oct 9 2018: First successful registration
- Oct 9 2018: The 0.2 BTC wallet was emptied. Someone called "aaron" sent an email with proof he solved this one.
- Oct 10 2018: The 310 BTC funds were taken. Solved by "Marc"
- Oct 10 2018: The 0.31 BTC wallet is yet to be solved.
- Oct 11 2018: Reddit locked the tread. For the next challenge I will think about a complete website with integrated commenting system instead.
- Oct 14 2018: The website was getting more visitors on a daily basis. Exponentially. The server even had troubles serving all of them. Until the 310 BTC wallet got cracked. Now my daily visitors chart is very very bearish. I mean, very very very bearish. Down over 90%! If I were to chart the amount of emails on a daily basis it will most certainly look very similar. It feels like there is no interest anymore. I'm puzzled the 0.31 BTC wallet is still unsolved and the remaining coins in the 310 BTC wallet are not even moved days later.....
- Oct 14 2018: In the next weeks I will have someone build a new website and I will start one or a couple smaller challenges ( 0.X BTC ). Those I need to set a baseline in order to try and make sure the next challenge will last a little longer while not making it impossible to solved these things within a reasonable time frame. Keep an eye on the website!
- Oct 16 2018: I am still working through all my emails. I keep getting a lot of hate emails for some reason. Please do not bother sending those becasue I don't even read them completely and surely won't answer.
- Oct 17 2018: I can see more progress is being made by others. Who is going to sweep the last few bits from the 310 wallet? Or are they getting close to the 0.31 one? Time will tell !
- Oct 29 2018: I recently saw some people making good progress. . To my surprise the 0.31 BTC wallet is still untouched!
- Oct 29 2018: The smaller challenges planned for the next weeks are delayed a bit. I currently don't have much time to work on them (due to personal reasons) and in 2 weeks I will be on vacation for a short while. I still plan to finish the first one somewhere in november. A new website is being worked on too.
- Nov 26 2018: People ask if I caused this latest market crash. Answer: No
- Nov 27 2018: Recently at least someone wrote something in the very right direction (regarding the 0.31 wallet). I wonder how long it'll take from now.
- Nov 27 2018: When the challenge went live I created some trap pages to fool those who wanted to be 'clever' (by using scanning techniques and brute force). One of these pages has been directly requested quite a lot in the last few weeks. Just saying!
- Dec 03 2018: I am starting to lose interest in working on this because I get to hear evil people, constantly. They keep complaining how the challenge wasn't designed well and how I did not evenly distribute the prices. How stupid I am because I did not give to charity instead. Yelling and begging at the same time. In comparison I hardly get (friendly) messages from people actually working on this or at least appreciating it. Reddit closed my post, bitcointalk blocked my vpn provider, and there's no fun in reading messages and be called shit every day. I honestly don't think I deserve that?
I started working on the smaller challenges a while ago but I have the feeling nobody appreciates it. I do no longer enjoy working on them after reading all that shit every day. For this reason I cancelled them. I will start working on the next bigger (300 BTC) challenge instead. Yet, you must be patient.
The next one will be thoroughly tested first (and it takes time). It will be way more difficult, yet won't require the same amount of technical computer skills. It'll be a totally different game and hopefully won't be solved as fast as the first one.
Last but not least: please don't forget the 0.31 BTC wallet is yet to be solved!
- Dec 03 2018: 17 minutes after posting the above I got a message saying it doesn't make sense to start the next big challenge if I don't even feel like working on the smaller ones anymore. The writer sounds very mad at me, called me stupid. I didn't even do anything?
Let me clarify this: I honestly don't like the feedback I'm getting lately. It feels like many people are mad at me for no reason. I do not enjoy this situation at all.
I already arranged things for the next big challenge and it's being worked. I won't cancel that one. But depending on the attitude of people this might be the last one too. I didn't expect so much "hate mail" from people without even doing anything.

Good luck!

HotBit is a centralized cryptocurrency exchange which claims to provide a built-in artificial market-maker digital engine.

https://i.pinimg.com/originals/17/a9/7a/17a97ab38bd9d7a1e4487316e3f495c1.png
HotBit is a centralized cryptocurrency exchange which claims to provide a “built-in artificial market-maker digital engine that meets the standard of Wall Street industrial standards” and access to hundredths of cryptocurrencies. At the time of this writing, HotBit’s website lacks information about its founders or where is it located. Instead of presenting the real people behind the project, the website adopts a generic approach and uses several buzzwords to describe the team’s competence. It communicates the unclear message that the core members of the team have “successful entrepreneurial experience” and that the exchange benefits from “experienced global investment consultation team and various cooperation partners” to attract liquidity from “various sources”.
The lack of information or the very generic one, present on its website, may raise second thoughts in some investors on whether to use HotBit’s service. Although this may not be a primary reason to avoid HotBit, the fact that it has identical (if not copied) information with several other exchanges is undoubtedly a thing to consider carefully. Regarding its “top-notch technology”, the HotBit’s website states the following: “Hotbit has adopted advanced technologies such as GSLB, distributed server clusters, distributed storage, and a high-speed memory-based trading engine all backed up in multiple machines, cold storage locations, and hot wallets with offline private keys. Our safe, stable and reliable digital asset trading services are delivered to our customers via web interface, mobile app and PC terminals.”
On the home page of its website, Hotbit proudly announces partnerships with a variety of organizations. At the time of this writing, there is no information detailing what these partnerships really represent.
Aside from everything else, HotBit claims that it offers 24/7 customer support “to ensure the smooth operation of every user’s transactions.” However, at the time of this writing, such statements are very hard to believe, considering the number of complaints on forums such as Reddit and Bitcointalk. Users express their frustrations over faked trading volume via phantom transactions (several users report that raising the question on the exchange’s Telegram channel results in a ban), freezing website service or inability to access accounts, unreasonably high withdraw fees, loss of funds and unresponsive customer support.
On the topic of security, the HotBit website does not provide any specific information, aside from the claim that its security management system “was established in partnership with top security companies” and that it has a “multi-level firewall to monitor system data for real-time processing.” It also adds that digital assets are secured through “a multi-signature and cold-hot wallet combination solution.” The exchange highlights its commitment to providing its users with “a safe and reliable service concept, relying on professional risk control system.” The information on the website features other unclear concepts such as “multimodular structure that meets the requirement of the IT surveillance logical structure in financial industry” which, if not anything else, does not provide reasonable details about the way the exchange protects its users’ funds. What can be confirmed, though, is that HotBit employs two-factor authentication.
Hotbit is an exchange launched in January 2018 that offers trading in many very unusual cryptos.
Its domicile country is unclear. This is not a red flag per se, but we recommend all visitors to be careful and form their own opinion on whether Hotbit is a legitimate exchange our not. No information on the company owning and operating the exchange is presented at the exchange’s website either.
As far as we can tell, US-investors can trade here. Any US-investors interested in trading here should in any event form their own opinion on any issues arising from their citizenship or residency.
The exchange promotes four things in particular as reasons to choose Hotbit as your trading platform. First off, it has multi-currency support, meaning that you can trade a lot of different cryptocurrencies here. It is easy to verify this statement and declare that it is true. Hotbit does indeed provide support for a large number of cryptocurrencies.
Option Trading:
The exchange has also announced that they will «soon» (statement made on 14 May 2019) launch its function Option Trading. We’re assuming that this will correspond to the leveraged trading functionality that many other trading platforms have, but we will follow up and update here as soon as it has been made public. There will also be a Mock Option Trading-function where you can practice option trading for free but without the risk of losing any actual assets.
Trading View:
Different exchanges have different trading views. And there is no “this overview is the best”-view. You should yourself determine which trading view that suits you the best. What the views normally have in common is that they all show the order book or at least part of the order book, a price chart of the chosen cryptocurrency and order history. They normally also have buy and sell-boxes. Before you choose an exchange, try to have a look at the trading view so that you can ascertain that it feels right to you.
Hotbit Trading fees:
This coin exchange doesn’t charge different fees between takers and makers. Their fee model is instead a “flat fee model”. Hotbit’s flat fees are 0.10%, which is below the global industry average (arguably around 0.25%). As we have not been able to determine Hotbit’s domicile country, we cannot compare their fees against any domestic counterparts either.
To our understanding, if you hold the platform’s native token, Hotbit Token (HTB), and pay trading fees with that, the trading fees are even lower than 0.10%. They will then only be 0.05%. This is a very low trading fee.
Hotbit Withdrawal fees:
When withdrawing Bitcoin, Hotbit charges a withdrawal fee amounting to 0.001 BTC. This is in line with industry average, albeit slightly on the high end.
Deposit Methods:
At this exchange, you can not deposit fiat currency. This means that new crypto investors (i.e., those without any previous crypto holdings) can’t trade here. In order to purchase your first cryptos, you need a so called entry-level exchange, which is an exchange accepting deposits of fiat currency.
The Hotbit website is available in 5 languages, including English. A Hotbit review reveals that they serve the cryptosphere via no less than 327 active markets and trading pairs, both fiat-to-crypto and crypto-to-crypto trading pairs. They seem to have an extensive selection of altcoins listed, including many exotic cryptos or digital assets.
A review of Hotbit exchange shows that they are planning to offer both an API and affiliate program, although it is unclear when exactly. In addition, no info is available about the company behind this crypto exchange or where it is based. They also provide no info about the security measures deployed (if any) and seem to only offer spot trading at this stage (no margin trading). In addition, they claim the Hotbit team is global, but no details are available about team members or the team behind Hotbit in order to verify.
Hotbit seems to charge no deposit fees, but extremely high withdrawal fees. Furthermore, they have elsewhere been accused of creating fake trading volume.

/r/ethtrader quickstart guide - Acronyms, Jargon, and Personalities.

Hi there new ETH investor and/or new /ethtrader community member! Glad to have you aboard. We are a pretty lively bunch around here; inside jokes, memes, and jargon run rampant.

I figured I would create a sort of glossary to help you figure out what the actual fuck we are talking about.

Acronyms (thanks decronym)

BGD: Big green dildo, as in a big green candlestick on the price chart.

BTFD: Buy the fucking dip.

ATH: All time high, the highest price of a thing ever, 1400ish for ETH.

FOMO: Fear Of Missing Out, the urge to jump on the bandwagon when prices rise.

DeFi: Decentralized Finance, MakerDAO and Dharma and stuff. Loans basically.

CDP: Collateralized debt position. A DeFi thing.

FUD: FeaUncertainty/Doubt, negative sentiments spread in order to drive down prices.

MEW: My Ether Wallet, a website to make and interact with wallets.

TA: Technical analysis, predicting the future of the price based on the past.

2FA: 2 factor authentication, its a security thing, a second password of sorts.

ERC20: The standard for tokens built on ETH.

POS: Not piece of shit, or point of sale. Proof of stake, the new consensus mechanism coming to ETH soon™.

ICO: Initial coin offering, the birth of a new crypto, usually an ERC20. Like an IPO.

IEO: Initial exchange offering, like an ICO, but typically a bit more scammy.

EZPZ: e_z_p_z_, more on him later...

BAT: Not the animal, Basic Attention Token

OMG: Not oh my god, well sometimes oh my god, but mostly OmiseGo. Pronounced OH-ME-SAY GO btw.

MKR: MakerDAO.

REP: There is too many tokens to list here, just google it you will figure it out.

DYOR: Do your own research. People want to steal your money. Make sure you know what you are buying.

LN: A silly bitcoin thing.

Jargon

Bull: Confident the price will go up.

Cuecomber: Cucumber, another EZPZ classic. Can be used as in cool as a cucumber, or as in BGD (see? now you know what BGD means, damn this guide is helpful.)

The ratio: The trading pair ETH:BTC.

The flippening: The ETH marketcap being bigger than the BTC marketcap. Coming soon™ .

Soon™: The release date for everything crypto related.

Donuts: Like reddit karma but /ethtrader specific, and infinitely more valuable. Legend has it that if you get 10 million donuts Vitalik sends you 10 ETH for every 1 ETH you send him. The name comes from cyounessi's post here.

Moon: The price where you can buy a lambo.

Mooning: The price increasing rapidly. Maybe exposed butts depending on how you choose to spend your money.

HODL: Hold. From here.

SODL: Sold, same as above.

BUIDL: Build, you get the pattern.

Golden cross: Moving averages of prices crossing. A TA thing.

JT's fire pit: jtnichol posts pictures of food he is cooking in his backyard fire pit. Those posts make you hungry.

The DAO: Tumultuous times in ethereum history to say the least.Further reading here.)

Personalities

vbuterin: The founder of Ethereum. We really really like him.

Joe Lubin: Co-founder of Ethereum, founder of ConsenSys. Memes aside. We like him.

carlslarson: Creator of /ethtrader. Overall good guy.

jtnichol: A mod of /ethtrader. Overall sweetheart.

The rest of the mods: Too many to list. It's a great group of people. They won't give you any trouble if you aren't being a dick.

dcinvestor: DC is a smart guy with good opinions. We really like him.

E_Z_P_Z_ the undisputed meme champion. A genuine crazy person. Made a bad sell on the way up, and wrote lengthy posts about how ETH was going back to $324 multiple times a day for months, often times with terrible spelling and grammar. When ETH did hit 324 he became something like a local hero. He is the heel of /ethtrader and we all love to hate him.

lamboshinakaghini: A fool, not to be trusted.

scienceguy9489: He used to regularly post TA. Sometimes he was right, sometimes he was wrong. The crucial thing was that he was memeable. He started to get a bit of an ego going, and was deleting his posts that were wrong, and keeping the correct ones. He recently made a return to /ethtrader and made a post that ETH was going to moon on a certain day and it ended up not being correct, which was just fuel on the meme fire. He goes by etherdamus now and runs a private TA group which has a fee to join.

singlestateserenity: He posts a haiku in the daily every day until we flippen bitcoin. Reading a nice haiku is a pleasant way to start your morning.

Everyone else: Well you will see them around and catch the vibe. There are just too many lovable and hateable people to list.

[Guide] With markets rising again, here is a friendly reminder to do your own research, and some tips on how to research!

Any time the market rising people flock to cryptocurrency looking for "the next big win" and are constantly asking others to tell them what the best opportunity is.
Because in many countries the cryptocurrency market is not a regulated industry, it is one that is ripe with manipulation and scams. The mod team here at /cryptocurrency regularly has to ban professional manipulation groups (sometimes as large as 800 members) who have been paid to promote projects.
Given this, it's important to be able to do your own research and so I've assembled this handy guide for you.
Some tools that might be useful:
Disclaimers:
Here is my personal approach to researching coins:
Step 1 - Understanding your risk profile:
A lot of people advocate for users purchasing cryptocurrencies and tokens that are "low-cap" ($10M - $100M) because they have the most opportunity to grow.
While this may be the case, the smaller a coin, and the earlier the project the more risk there is that the project can go to 0.
In traditional stocks some people are happy to make a 3% - 4% annual return, but would be in financial hardship if they lost money, and will invest in larger, safer and more stable stocks.
Other people, would only be satisfied with a return of 7% - 12% annual return. These people may also be willing to lose all of their investment. In their case they'd look at higher risk and turn around companies.
We say these two people have different 'risk profiles.'
It's important with any purchase (even something like a car) to decide what your financial risk profile is.
My personal view is that just because something has the highest chance of return, doesn't mean that it is the best opportunity.
Step 2 - Identify New Coins:
There are three ways I generally discover 'new' coins:
Step 3 - How I rule out coins:
One of the first things I do when examining new projects is find really strict criteria to remove projects from the list.
Everyone should come up with their own list of things that voids a coin from being on their list, but here are a few I personally use:
These criteria I use to quickly filter down my list before I do some more detailed analysis.
Step 4 - Doing detailed research:
First and foremost I read the white paper and then I ask myself the following questions:
  1. Would I use this as a customer?
  2. Would I pay that price as a customer?
  3. Does this project require a new technology to be built?
  4. If I look at the team behind the project, do they have a previous track record? Have they run a successful company previously? What happened to that company?
  5. Does this team have the ability to build this technology? Are their engineers published in this industry? Do they have product managers and customer support?
  6. Is it clear how the project will get users/customers?
  7. Why are they using the blockchain - does it add value here? What are the pros and cons to using the blockchain here and why would the blockchain improve the current alternative? (Remember, right now blockchains are slow and costly in most cases)
  8. Watch out for absolutist claims. Every projects has downsides and cons, a real project will be realistic in outlining those.
After that, if it is an already launched project I check out the coin's detail page on CoinCheckUp for example the Bitcoin page: https://coincheckup.com/coins/bitcoin/charts
I then look at:
  1. Tab "Analysis" > "GitHub Development" to see if there is active engineering development on the project.
  2. Tab "Analysis" > "Coin facts & figures" if it is a company I check the information on the CEO/CTO as well as some info on the team.
  3. Tab "Markets" - I check where the coin is trading to see if any of my preferred exchanges are available yet. If it's on limited exchanges, I look for non-sketchy ones. I also may look to see if there is a large spread between currencies.
  4. Tab "Charts" - I check that the volume has a decent, growing and steady turnover. It's easy to get trapped at a bad price in a currency that has a low volume.
Once I've gone through those pieces of information, I usually check out the subreddit of the project and ask myself questions like:

Guide for Noobs

Simple and Not A Lot of Money

Guide for Not Noobs

Less Simple

-setup an account on coinbase.com, move dollars into your account, setup an account on gdax.com (same company, same login), move your cash from coinbase to gdax, buy your coins on GDAX at Market, fees are cheaper 0.25% versus 1.5%
-consider buying alternative coins supported by coinbase

No Fees

-all of the above but use GDAX's Limit/Buy, zero fees, but you have to wait for the market to dip below your buy price

More Money Available

-setup several Limit/Buy orders at different price points to capture dips when you are away

More Control but More Complex

-it's possible coinbase could go out of business, move some or most of your coins to a personal hardware wallet like a Trezor or Ledger Nano S, made in Czech Republic and France respectively
-consider using other exchanges with different fees and coin support
-consider buying other alternative coins supported by other exchanges

You Are Very Responsible

-create a paper wallet, put it in a safe, be warned it's like a visual bearer instrument, if you lose it or someone takes a picture of it...it's gone, but you have complete control over your money/asset

DO NOT EVER

-buy more than you can lose, it's early wild west days, the market could easily come crashing down
-panic sell, the market fluctuates regularly by 20%, thus far it has ALWAYS recovered, people that try to sell during a fall/dip and buy at the bottom usually miss time it and lose
-store your keys on your computer or phone unless its small amount, these are the two most vulnerable routes to hacking and simple hardware failure resulting in loss
-attempt to daytrade and time the best prices unless your real life job is day trading
-get addicted to watching the market, pay attention watch for dips, but don't let it crowd out your work or free time
-keep a LOT of cash or coin in an exchange, it is very easy to mistype and buy or sell far more than you meant to, exchanges can disappear with your coins
-buy a hardware wallet from anyone other than the company who makes it, i.e. do not buy one on Amazon, it is possible some third person hacked it and could steal your coin

PROBABLY DON'T

-limit sells until the far future when market volatility is down, flash crashes have happened and recovered, if you had all your coin in limit sells it would be gone
-margin trade unless your real life job is day trading
-stop buys or stop sells unless your real life job is day trading

DO

-hold your coins, your coin may be worth x10 or more in value in the future, e.g. if bitcoin replaced gold, bitcoin would be worth ~x70 the current value
-buy small amounts over time DCA, this might not seem intuitive but it spreads your risk out, reduces risk of buying at all time highs (ATH) and more likely to catch lows (dips), a fluctuation of $100 in price is small if the eventual value is worth x10 or more in the future
-keep a small amount of cash on an exchange always, when there is a lot of traffic/trading which happens during dips, you are much more likely to be able to make trades on an exchange rather than with your own wallet

REMEMBER

-if you don't have your coin in your own wallet, it's not your coin. this is not a problem until you have a lot of value and you want to keep it safe from a bankruptcy, unscrupulous people/exchanges, or unforeseen acts. if it's a small amount compared to your income it's an acceptable risk, if not then move it to a wallet
-in the days of fake news not everything you read is true, in fact there are armies of people shilling for 'pick a random coin'; some are malicious, some uninformed, and some willfully uninformed
-if your value starts to become large, dig deep into how your asset/currencies work just like you would for any other purchase, understanding how it works helps you understand if it will be a success, e.g. understand the difference between PoW vs PoS or what a hard fork is
-some coins especially newer ones are scams, a good indication of if it is not a scam is how long the coin has been around
-most bitcoin hard forks so far have not been successful with some exceptions
-btc is the accepted short-name for bitcoin on most (but not all) exchanges, xbt is also common in EUR-land

Other Risks

-holding your own coin requires personal responsibility, it is easy to lose and not be able to recover it if you are not careful
-again, do not buy more coin than you can lose
-transaction speeds which are slow are a serious problem in bitcoin scaling
-there is less innovation and more argument going on in bitcoin than some other coins, bitcoin is large enough that consensus is difficult, future change is less likely than with some other coins, there are other side solutions to bitcoins problems that may not require bitcoin to change much
-bitcoin.org IS the generally accepted bitcoin website, NOT bitcoin.com
-important other risks compiled by themetalfriend
-coinbase has insurance up to $250k USD for you USD Wallet which DOES NOT cover your bitcoins or other crypto currencies, they claim to have separate insurance for your crypto currency but it is unclear how much

Community

there are a lot of memes
-hodl, GameKyuubi mistyped hold and it spread
-to the moon, where everyone hopes the price will go
-coin on a rollercoaster, it is highly volitile market you will see this during fluctuations
-this is gentlemen, via Liquid_child , here
-lambo/roadster, a car people want to buy when they get rich

Mining for Profitability - Horizen (formerly ZenCash) Thanks Early GPU Miners

Mining for Profitability - Horizen (formerly ZenCash) Thanks Early GPU Miners
Thank you for inviting Horizen to the GPU mining AMA!
ZEN had a great run of GPU mining that lasted well over a year, and brought lots of value to the early Zclassic miners. It is mined using Equihash protocol, and there have been ASIC miners available for the algorithm since about June of 2018. GPU mining is not really profitable for Horizen at this point in time.
We’ve got a lot of miners in the Horizen community, and many GPU miners also buy ASIC miners. Happy to talk about algorithm changes, security, and any other aspect of mining in the questions below. There are also links to the Horizen website, blog post, etc. below.
So, if I’m not here to ask you to mine, hold, and love ZEN, what can I offer? Notes on some of the lessons I’ve learned about maximizing mining profitability. An update on Horizen - there is life after moving on from GPU mining. As well as answering your questions during the next 7 days.

Mining for Profitability - Horizen (formerly ZenCash) Thanks Early GPU Miners

Author: Rolf Versluis - co-founder of Horizen

In GPU mining, just like in many of the activities involved with Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, there is both a cycle and a progression. The Bitcoin price cycle is fairly steady, and by creating a personal handbook of actions to take during the cycle, GPU miners can maximize their profitability.
Maximizing profitability isn't the only aspect of GPU mining that is important, of course, but it is helpful to be able to invest in new hardware, and be able to have enough time to spend on building and maintaining the GPU miners. If it was a constant process that also involved losing money, then it wouldn't be as much fun.

Technology Progression

For a given mining algorithm, there is definitely a technology progression. We can look back on the technology that was used to mine Bitcoin and see how it first started off as Central Processing Unit (CPU) mining, then it moved to Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) mining, then Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), and then Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC).
Throughout this evolution we have witnessed a variety of unsavory business practices that unfortunately still happen on occasion, like ASIC Miner manufacturers taking pre-orders 6 months in advance, GPU manufacturers creating commercial cards for large farms that are difficult for retail customers to secure and ASIC Miner manufacturers mining on gear for months before making it available for sale.
When a new crypto-currency is created, in many cases a new mining algorithm is created also. This is important, because if an existing algorithm was used, the coin would be open to a 51% attack from day one, and may not even be able to build a valid blockchain.
Because there's such a focus on profitable software, developers for GPU mining applications are usually able to write a mining application fairly rapidly, then iterate it to the limit of current GPU technology. If it looks like a promising new cryptocurrency, FPGA stream developers and ASIC Hardware Developers start working on their designs at the same time.
The people who create the hashing algorithms run by the miners are usually not very familiar with the design capabilities of Hardware manufacturers. Building application-specific semiconductors is an industry that's almost 60 years old now, and FPGA’s have been around for almost 35 years. This is an industry that has very experienced engineers using advanced design and modeling tools.
Promising cryptocurrencies are usually ones that are deploying new technology, or going after a big market, and who have at least a team of talented software developers. In the best case, the project has a full-stack business team involving development, project management, systems administration, marketing, sales, and leadership. This is the type of project that attracts early investment from the market, which will drive the price of the coin up significantly in the first year.
For any cryptocurrency that's a worthwhile investment of time, money, and electricity for the hashing, there will be a ASIC miners developed for it. Instead of fighting this technology progression, GPU miners may be better off recognizing it as inevitable, and taking advantage of the cryptocurrency cycle to maximize GPU mining profitability instead.

Cryptocurrency Price Cycle

For quality crypto projects, in addition to the one-way technology progression of CPU -> GPU -> FPGA -> ASIC, there is an upward price progression. More importantly, there is a cryptocurrency price cycle that oscillates around an overall upgrade price progression. Plotted against time, a cycle with an upward progressions looks like a sine wave with an ever increasing average value, which is what we see so far with the Bitcoin price.

Cryptocurrency price cycle and progression for miners
This means mining promising new cryptocurrencies with GPU miners, holding them as the price rises, and being ready to sell a significant portion in the first year. Just about every cryptocurrency is going to have a sharp price rise at some point, whether through institutional investor interest or by being the target of a pump-and-dump operation. It’s especially likely in the first year, while the supply is low and there is not much trading volume or liquidity on exchanges.
Miners need to operate in the world of government money, as well as cryptocurrency. The people who run mining businesses at some point have to start selling their mining proceeds to pay the bills, and to buy new equipment as the existing equipment becomes obsolete. Working to maximize profitability means more than just mining new cryptocurrencies, it also means learning when to sell and how to manage money.

Managing Cash for Miners

The worst thing that can happen to a business is to run out of cash. When that happens, the business usually shuts down and goes into bankruptcy. Sometimes an investor comes in and picks up the pieces, but at the point the former owners become employees.
There are two sides to managing cash - one is earning it, the other is spending it, and the cryptocurrency price cycle can tell the GPU miner when it is the best time to do certain things. A market top and bottom is easy to recognize in hindsight, and harder to see when in the middle of it. Even if a miner is able to recognize the tops and bottoms, it is difficult to act when there is so much hype and positivity at the top of the cycle, and so much gloom and doom at the bottom.
A decent rule of thumb for the last few cycles appears to be that at the top and bottom of the cycle BTC is 10x as expensive compared to USD as the last cycle. Newer crypto projects tend to have bigger price swings than Bitcoin, and during the rising of the pricing cycle there is the possibility that an altcoin will have a rise to 100x its starting price.
Taking profits from selling altcoins during the rise is important, but so is maintaining a reserve. In order to catch a 100x move, it may be worth the risk to put some of the altcoin on an exchange and set a very high limit order. For the larger cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin it is important to set trailing sell stops on the way up, and to not buy back in for at least a month if a sell stop gets triggered. Being able to read price charts, see support and resistance areas for price, and knowing how to set sell orders are an important part of mining profitability.

Actions to Take During the Cycle

As the cycle starts to rise from the bottom, this is a good time to buy mining hardware - it will be inexpensive. Also to mine and buy altcoins, which are usually the first to see a price rise, and will have larger price increases than Bitcoin.
On the rise of the cycle, this is a good time to see which altcoins are doing well from a project fundamentals standpoint, and which ones look like they are undergoing accumulation from investors.
Halfway through the rise of the cycle is the time to start selling altcoins for the larger project cryptos like Bitcoin. Miners will miss some of the profit at the top of the cycle, but will not run out of cash by doing this. This is also the time to stop buying mining hardware. Don’t worry, you’ll be able to pick up that same hardware used for a fraction of the price at the next bottom.
As the price nears the top of the cycle, sell enough Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies to meet the following projected costs:
  • Mining electricity costs for the next 12 months
  • Planned investment into new miners for the next cycle
  • Additional funds needed for things like supporting a family or buying a Lambo
  • Taxes on all the capital gains from the sale of cryptocurrencies
It may be worth selling 70-90% of crypto holdings, maintaining a reserve in case there is second upward move caused by government bankruptcies. But selling a large part of the crypto is helpful to maintaining profitability and having enough cash reserves to make it through the bottom part of the next cycle.
As the cycle has peaked and starts to decline, this is a good time to start investing in mining facilities and other infrastructure, brush up on trading skills, count your winnings, and take some vacation.
At the bottom of the cycle, it is time to start buying both used and new mining equipment. The bottom can be hard to recognize.
If you can continue to mine all the way through bottom part of the cryptocurrency pricing cycle, paying with the funds sold near the top, you will have a profitable and enjoyable cryptocurrency mining business. Any cryptocurrency you are able to hold onto will benefit from the price progression in the next higher cycle phase.

An Update on Horizen - formerly ZenCash

The team at Horizen recognizes the important part that GPU miners played in the early success of Zclassic and ZenCash, and there is always a welcoming attitude to any of ZEN miners, past and present. About 1 year after ZenCash launched, ASIC miners became available for the Equihash algorithm. Looking at a chart of mining difficulty over time shows when it was time for GPU miners to move to mining other cryptocurrencies.

Horizen Historical Block Difficulty Graph
Looking at the hashrate chart, it is straightforward to see that ASIC miners were deployed starting June 2018. It appears that there was a jump in mining hashrate in October of 2017. This may have been larger GPU farms switching over to mine Horizen, FPGA’s on the network, or early version of Equihash ASIC miners that were kept private.
The team understands the importance of the cryptocurrency price cycle as it affects the funds from the Horizen treasury and the investments that can be made. 20% of each block mined is sent to the Horizen non-profit foundation for use to improve the project. Just like miners have to manage money, the team has to decide whether to spend funds when the price is high or convert it to another form in preparation for the bottom part of the cycle.
During the rise and upper part of the last price cycle Horizen was working hard to maximize the value of the project through many different ways, including spending on research and development, project management, marketing, business development with exchanges and merchants, and working to create adoption in all the countries of the world.
During the lower half of the cycle Horizen has reduced the team to the essentials, and worked to build a base of users, relationships with investors, exchanges, and merchants, and continue to develop the higher priority software projects. Lower priority software development, going to trade shows, and paying for business partnerships like exchanges and applications have all been completely stopped.
Miners are still a very important part of the Horizen ecosystem, earning 60% of the block reward. 20% goes to node operators, with 20% to the foundation. In the summer of 2018 the consensus algorithm was modified slightly to make it much more difficult for any group of miners to perform a 51% attack on Horizen. This has so far proven effective.
The team is strong, we provide monthly updates on a YouTube live stream on the first Wednesday of each month where all questions asked during the stream are addressed, and our marketing team works to develop awareness of Horizen worldwide. New wallet software was released recently, and it is the foundation application for people to use and manage their ZEN going forward.
Horizen is a Proof of Work cryptocurrency, and there is no plan to change that by the current development team. If there is a security or centralization concern, there may be change to the algorithm, but that appears unlikely at this time, as the hidden chain mining penalty looks like it is effective in stopping 51% attacks.
During 2019 and 2020 the Horizen team plans to release many new software updates:
  • Sidechains modification to main software
  • Sidechain Software Development Kit
  • Governance and Treasury application running on a sidechain
  • Node tracking and payments running on a sidechain
  • Conversion from blockchain to a Proof of Work BlockDAG using Equihash mining algorithm
After these updates are working well, the team will work to transition Horizen over to a governance model where major decisions and the allocation of treasury funds are done through a form of democratic voting. At this point all the software developed by Horizen is expected to be open source.
When the governance is transitioned, the project should be as decentralized as possible. The goal of decentralization is to enable resilience and preventing the capture of the project by regulators, government, criminal organizations, large corporations, or a small group of individuals.
Everyone involved with Horizen can be proud of what we have accomplished together so far. Miners who were there for the early mining and growth of the project played a large part in securing the network, evangelizing to new community members, and helping to create liquidity on new exchanges. Miners are still a very important part of the project and community. Together we can look forward to achieving many new goals in the future.

Since the orthodox bear market low on 06-FEB-2019, the Bitcoin markets have surged to an average 125% gain in approx 100 days approaching mid-MAY. The 3-month rally has now retraced a Fibonacci 23.6% of the entire 2018 bear market. True to form, the bull market has exerted itself in a parabolic rise.
From an Elliott Wave perspective, five waves appear to have completed as follows:
+ Wave-1: 24-FEB - Wave-2: 27-FEB + Wave-3: 23-APR - Wave-4: 25-APR + Wave-5: 12-MAY (?) 
Given the comparative magnitude and timeframe of the aforementioned waves, the waves are now being considered as MINOR degree. Barring any wave extensions, it appears five MINOR waves have completed, and thus completing the first INTERMEDIATE degree wave of the bull market. A wave of INTERMEDIATE degree usually elapses from weeks to months towards completion.
The expectation now suggests the first notable pullback of the bull market to imminently commence, unfolding in a three wave A-B-C structure. The following are averaged target zones for the pullback, using BITSTAMP prices:
@5400: approx 50% Fibonacci retracement of 06-FEB to 11-MAY rally (minimum expected decline zone). @4888: approx 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of 06-FEB to 11-MAY rally (average expected decline zone). @4155: approx 78.6% Fibonacci retracement of 06-FEB to 11-MAY rally (maximum expected decline zone). 
The first notable pullback of the 2015-2017 bull market retraced approx 78.6% in size, elapsing approx 6 months until late AUG-2015.
A decline to the 06-FEB low would terminate the proposed wave structure, and quite possibly the bull market.
Once the pullback completes, the third and most powerful wave of the 2019+ bull market ought to commence towards the psychological $10,000 level and beyond.
BITSTAMP Resistance Zones: 7510, 8500, 9440, 11395, 13350 BITSTAMP Support Zones: 7030, 6900, 6410, 5920, 5215, 4320 
Since 2016, both the stockmarket and Bitcoin markets have been in synchronisation: both started bull markets in 2016, both had bear markets in 2018, both resumed bull markets in 2019.
Seasonally, the “Sell In May And Go Away” adage is currently being expressed in the stockmarket.
Since the beginning of May, the Dow Jones has declined 4.50% —the largest decline since the 2019 bull market commenced.
Should the Bitcoin markets decline in MAY, a continued synchronisation may suggest further declines in the stockmarket.
A break below the 25-MAR low of 25,370 in the Dow Jones may suggest further declines, a break below the 11-MAR low of 25,200 would confirm a stockmarket pullback to be underway. If so, an approx 10% decline in the stockmarket towards Dow Jones 24,000 may be expected, followed by resumption of the bull market to new all-time highs. A rise above Dow Jones 26,500 ought to obviate the “Sell In May And Go Away” adage.
Analysis is speculative, and charts are indicative of price/structure —not time. The projections may occur sooner or later than anticipated, perhaps not at all…!

Day 9: I will post this guide regularly until available solutions like SegWit, order batching, and Lightning payment channels are mass adopted, the mempool is empty once again, and tx fees are low. Have you done your part?

BACKGROUND
Segregated Witness (SegWit) was activated on the Bitcoin network August 24 2017 as a soft fork that is backward compatible with previous bitcoin transactions (Understanding Segregated Witness). Since that time wallets and exchanges have been slow to deploy SegWit, and the majority of users have not made the switch themselves.
On Dec 18 2017 Subhan Nadeem has pointed out that: If every transaction in the Bitcoin network was a SegWit transaction today, blocks would contain up to 8,000 transactions, and the 138,000 unconfirmed transaction backlog would disappear instantly. Transaction fees would be almost non-existent once again.
Mass SegWit use alone could empty the mempool, result in blocks that are not completely full, and make it possible to include transactions with $0 fee once again.
On Jan 11 2018 when BTC sends went offline at Coinbase the mempool began to rapidly empty. Later in the day when service was restored there was a sharp spike up in the mempool. Subsequently, that afternoon Brian Armstrong finally had to break his silence on the topic and admitted Coinbase is working on SegWit but has still not deployed it. It appears that this is an important data point that indicates if just a few major exchanges would deploy SegWit the high fees bitcoin is experiencing would be eliminated.
SegWit is just one technique available to exchanges and users to reduce pressure on the Bitcoin network. You can make the switch to SegWit on your next transaction, and pressure exchanges to deploy SegWit NOW along with other actions that will reduce their transaction impact on the network. You can help by taking one or more of the action steps below.
ACTION STEPS
  1. If your favorite wallet has not yet implemented SegWit, kindly ask them to do so immediately. If your wallet is not committed to implementing SegWit fast, speak out online any way you can and turn up the pressure. In the meantime start using a wallet that has already implemented SegWit.
  2. If your favorite exchange has not yet implemented SegWit, try to avoid making any further purchases of bitcoin at that exchange and politely inform them that if they do not enable SegWit within 30-days they will lose your business. Sign-up for an account at a SegWit deployed/ready exchange now and initiate the verification process so you'll be ready to bail
  3. Help educate newcomers to bitcoin about the transaction issue, steer them towards SegWit wallets from day one, and encourage them to avoid ever purchasing bitcoin through non-SegWit ready exchanges that are harming bitcoin.
  4. Spread the word! Contact individuals, websites, etc that use bitcoin, explain the benefits of SegWit to everyone, and request they make the switch. Use social media to point out the benefits of SegWit adoption.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The mempool is currently still quite backlogged. If you are a long-term holder and really have no reason to move your bitcoins at this time, wait until the mempool starts to clear and transaction fees go down before moving your bitcoins to a SegWit address or SegWit friendly exchange.
BEYOND SEGWIT - BATCHING, PAYMENT CHANNELS, LIGHTNING
Batching is another great way that exchanges can reduce their fees. See: Saving up to 80% on Bitcoin transaction fees by batching payments. Despite the benefits of batching, some exchanges have been slow to implement it. Users should demand this or walk.
Beyond SegWit & Batching, Lightning Network integration will have even more effect. Lightning is now active and exchanges could setup payment channels between each other so that on-chain transactions need not take place. Some ideas have to outline how that might work are here: Google Doc - Lightning Exchanges. Which two bitcoin exchanges will be the first to establish a lightning channel between themselves and offer free/instant transfers between them for their customers? This will happen in 2018

FAQs
If I'm a HODLer, will it help to send my BTC to a SegWit address now?
No, just get ready now so that your NEXT transaction will be to a SegWit wallet. Avoid burdening the network with any unnecessary transactions for now.
Why is SegWit adoption going so slowly? Is it a time-consuming process, is there risk involved, is it laziness, or something else?
SegWit will require some extra work to be done right and securely. Also, most exchanges let the user pay the fee, and up to now users have not been overly concerned about fees so for some exchanges it hasn't been a priority.
Once Segwit is FULLY adopted, what do we see the fees/transaction times going to?
Times stay the same - fees will go down. How much and for how long depends on what the demand for transactions will be at that time.
What determines bitcoin transaction fees, to begin with?
Fees are charged per byte of data and are bid up by users. Miners will typically include the transaction with the highest fee/byte first.
Can you please tell me how to move my bitcoins to SegWit address in Bitcoin core wallet? Does the sender or receiver matter?
The Bitcoin core wallet does not yet have a GUI for its SegWit functionality. Download the latest version of Electrum to generate a SegWit address.
A transaction between two SegWit addresses is a SegWit transaction.
A transaction sent from a SegWit address to a non-SegWit address is a SegWit transaction.
A transaction sent from a non-SegWit address to a SegWit address is NOT a SegWit transaction. You can send a SegWit Tx if the sending address is a SegWit address.
Source: HowToToken
What wallet are you using to "batch your sends"? And how can I do that?
Using Electrum, the "Tools" menu option: "Pay to many".
Just enter your receive addresses and the amounts for each, and you can send multiple transactions for nearly the price of one.
Why doesn't the Core Wallet yet support SegWit?
The Core Wallet supports SegWit, but its GUI doesn't. The next update will likely have GUI support built-in
Why isn't a large exchange like Coinbase SegWit ready & deployed when much smaller exchanges already are? Why do they default to high fees? Where is the leadership there?
Draw your own conclusions based on their own words:
March 2016 - Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong has reservations about Core
Dec 2017 - Coinbase is STILL working on Segwit
P2SH/bech32 FAQs
What are the two SegWit address formats and why do they exist?
It's been a challenge for wallet developers to implement SegWit in a way that users can easily and without too much disruption migrate from legacy to SegWit addresses. The first wallets to enable SegWit addresses – Ledger, Trezor, Core, GreenAddress – use so-called “nested P2SH addresses.” This means they take the existing Pay 2 Script Hash address – starting with a “3” – and put a SegWit address into it. This enables a high grade of compatibility to exist wallets as every wallet is familiar with these addresses, but it is a workaround which results in SegWit transactions needing around 10 percent more space than they otherwise would.
Electrum 3.0 was the first wallet to use bech32 addresses instead of nested p2sh addresses.
Source: BTCManager.com
What is the difference in address format between SegWit address formats P2SH and bech32?
P2SH starts with "3..."
bech32 starts with "bc1..."
Which addresses can I send from/to?
P2SH Segwit addresses can be sent to using older Bitcoin software with no Segwit support. This supports backward compatibility
bech32 can only be sent to from newer Bitcoin software that support bech32. Ex: Electrum
Source: BitcoinTalk.org
Why did ThePirateBay put up two Bitcoin donation addresses on their frontpage, one bech32 and one not?
The address starting with a "3..." is a P2SH SegWit address that can be sent BTC from any bitcoin address including a legacy address. The address starting with a "bc1..." is a bech32 SegWit address that can only be sent to from newer wallets that support bech32.

Looking back 18 months.

I was going through old emails today and came across this one I sent out to family on January 4, 2018. It was a reflection on the 2017 crypto bull market and where I saw it heading, as well as some general advice on crypto, investment, and being safe about how you handle yourself in cryptoland.
I feel that we are on the cusp of a new bull market right now, so I thought that I would put this out for at least a few people to see *before* the next bull run, not after. While the details have changed, I don't see a thing in this email that I fundamentally wouldn't say again, although I'd also probably insist that people get a Yubikey and use that for all 2FA where it is supported.
Happy reading, and sorry for some of the formatting weirdness -- I cleaned it up pretty well from the original email formatting, but I love lists and indents and Reddit has limitations... :-/
Also, don't laught at my token picks from January 2018! It was a long time ago and (luckliy) I took my own advice about moving a bunch into USD shortly after I sent this. I didn't hit the top, and I came back in too early in the summer of 2018, but I got lucky in many respects.
----------------------------------------------------------------------- Jan-4, 2018
Hey all!
I woke up this morning to ETH at a solid $1000 and decided to put some thoughts together on what I think crypto has done and what I think it will do. *******, if you could share this to your kids I’d appreciate it -- I don’t have e-mail addresses, and it’s a bit unwieldy for FB Messenger… Hopefully they’ll at least find it thought-provoking. If not, they can use it as further evidence that I’m a nutjob. 😉
Some history before I head into the future.
I first mined some BTC in 2011 or 2012 (Can’t remember exactly, but it was around the Christmas holidays when I started because I had time off from work to get it set up and running.) I kept it up through the start of summer in 2012, but stopped because it made my PC run hot and as it was no longer winter, ********** didn’t appreciate the sound of the fans blowing that hot air into the room any more. I’ve always said that the first BTC I mined was at $1, but looking back at it now, that’s not true – It was around $2. Here’s a link to BTC price history.
In the summer of 2013 I got a new PC and moved my programs and files over before scrapping the old one. I hadn’t touched my BTC mining folder for a year then, and I didn’t even think about salvaging those wallet files. They are now gone forever, including the 9-10BTC that were in them. While I can intellectually justify the loss, it was sloppy and underlines a key thing about cryptocurrency that I believe will limit its widespread adoption by the general public until it is addressed and solved: In cryptoland, you are your own bank, and if you lose your password or account number, there is no person or organization that can help you reset it so that you can get access back. Your money is gone forever.
On April 12, 2014 I bought my first BTC through Coinbase. BTC had spiked to $1000 and been in the news, at least in Japan. This made me remember my old wallet and freak out for a couple of months trying to find it and reclaim the coins. I then FOMO’d (Fear Of Missing Out”) and bought $100 worth of BTC. I was actually very lucky in my timing and bought at around $430. Even so, except for a brief 50% swing up almost immediately afterwards that made me check prices 5 times a day, BTC fell below my purchase price by the end of September and I didn’t get back to even until the end of 2015.
In May 2015 I bought my first ETH at around $1. I sent some guy on bitcointalk ~$100 worth of BTC and he sent me 100 ETH – all on trust because the amounts were small and this was a small group of people. BTC was down in the $250 range at that point, so I had lost 30-40% of my initial investment. This was of the $100 invested, so not that much in real terms, but huge in percentages. It also meant that I had to buy another $100 of BTC on Coinbase to send to this guy. A few months after I purchased my ETH, BTC had doubled and ETH had gone down to $0.50, halving the value of my ETH holdings. I was even on the first BTC purchase finally, but was now down 50% on the ETH I had bought.
The good news was that this made me start to look at things more seriously. Where I had skimmed white papers and gotten a superficial understanding of the technology before FOMO’ing, I started to act as an investor, not a speculator. Let me define how I see those two different types of activity:
So what has been my experience as an investor? After sitting out the rest of 2015 because I needed to understand the market better, I bought into ETH quite heavily, with my initial big purchases being in March-April of 2016. Those purchases were in the $11-$14 range. ETH, of course, dropped immediately to under $10, then came back and bounced around my purchase range for a while until December of 2016, when I purchased a lot more at around $8.
I also purchased my first ICO in August of 2016, HEAT. I bought 25ETH worth. Those tokens are now worth about half of their ICO price, so about 12.5ETH or $12500 instead of the $25000 they would be worth if I had just kept ETH. There are some other things with HEAT that mean I’ve done quite a bit better than those numbers would suggest, but the fact is that the single best thing I could have done is to hold ETH and not spend the effort/time/cost of working with HEAT. That holds true for about every top-25 token on the market when compared to ETH. It certainly holds true for the many, many tokens I tried to trade in Q1-Q2 of 2017. In almost every single case I would have done better and slept better had I just held ETH instead of trying to be smarter than Mr. Market.
But, I made money on all of them except one because the crypto market went up more in USD terms than any individual coin went down in ETH or BTC terms. This underlines something that I read somewhere and that I take to heart: A rising market makes everyone seem like a genius. A monkey throwing darts at a list of the top 100 cryptocurrencies last year would have doubled his money. Here’s a chart from September that shows 2017 year-to-date returns for the top 10 cryptocurrencies, and all of them went up a *lot* more between then and December. A monkey throwing darts at this list there would have quintupled his money.
When evaluating performance, then, you have to beat the monkey, and preferably you should try to beat a Wall Street monkey. I couldn’t, so I stopped trying around July 2017. My benchmark was the BLX, a DAA (Digital Asset Array – think fund like a Fidelity fund) created by ICONOMI. I wasn’t even close to beating the BLX returns, so I did several things.
  1. I went from holding about 25 different tokens to holding 10 now. More on that in a bit.
  2. I used those funds to buy ETH and BLX. ETH has done crazy-good since then and BLX has beaten BTC handily, although it hasn’t done as well as ETH.
  3. I used some of those funds to set up an arbitrage operation.
The arbitrage operation is why I kept the 11 tokens that I have now. All but a couple are used in an ETH/token pair for arbitrage, and each one of them except for one special case is part of BLX. Why did I do that? I did that because ICONOMI did a better job of picking long-term holds than I did, and in arbitrage the only speculative thing you must do is pick the pairs to trade. My pairs are (No particular order):
I also hold PLU, PLBT, and ART. These two are multi-year holds for me. I have not purchased BTC once since my initial $200, except for a few cases where BTC was the only way to go to/from an altcoin that didn’t trade against ETH yet. Right now I hold about the same 0.3BTC that I held after my first $100 purchase, so I don’t really count it.
Looking forward to this year, I am positioning myself as follows:
Looking at my notes, I have two other things that I wanted to work into this email that I didn’t get to, so here they are:
  1. Just like with free apps and other software, if you are getting something of value and you didn’t pay anything for it, you need to ask why this is. With apps, the phrase is “If you didn’t pay for the product, you are the product”, and this works for things such as pump groups, tips, and even technical analysis. Here’s how I see it.
    1. People don’t give tips on stocks or crypto that they don’t already own that stock or token. Why would they, since if they convince anyone to buy it, the price only goes up as a result, making it more expensive for them to buy in? Sure, you will have friends and family that may do this, but people in a crypto club, your local cryptocurrency meetup, or online are generally not your friends. They are there to make money, and if they can get you to help them make money, they will do it. Pump groups are the worst of these, and no matter how enticing it may look, stay as far away as possible from these scams. I even go so far as to report them when I see them advertise on FB or Twitter, because they are violating the terms of use.
    2. Technical analysis (TA) is something that has been argued about for longer than I’ve been alive, but I think that it falls into the same boat. In short, TA argues that there are patterns in trading that can be read and acted upon to signal when one must buy or sell. It has been used forever in the stock and foreign exchange markets, and people use it in crypto as well. Let’s break down these assumptions a bit.
i. First, if crypto were like the stock or forex markets we’d all be happy with 5-7% gains per year rather than easily seeing that in a day. For TA to work the same way in crypto as it does in stocks and foreign exchange, the signals would have to be *much* stronger and faster-reacting than they work in the traditional market, but people use them in exactly the same way.
ii. Another area where crypto is very different than the stock and forex markets centers around market efficiency theory. This theory says that markets are efficient and that the price reflects all the available information at any given time. This is why gold in New York is similar in price to gold in London or Shanghai, and why arbitrage margins are easily <0.1% in those markets compared to cryptoland where I can easily get 10x that. Crypto simply has too much speculation and not enough professional traders in it yet to operate as an efficient market. That fundamentally changes the way that the market behaves and should make any TA patterns from traditional markets irrelevant in crypto.
iii. There are services, both free and paid that claim to put out signals based on TA for when one should buy and sell. If you think for even a second that they are not front-running (Placing orders ahead of yours to profit.) you and the other people using the service, you’re naïve.
iv. Likewise, if you don’t think that there are people that have but together computerized systems to get ahead of people doing manual TA, you’re naïve. The guys that I have programming my arbitrage bots have offered to build me a TA bot and set up a service to sell signals once our position is taken. I said no, but I am sure that they will do it themselves or sell that to someone else. Basically they look at TA as a tip machine where when a certain pattern is seen, people act on that “tip”. They use software to see that “tip” faster and take a position on it so that when slower participants come in they either have to sell lower or buy higher than the TA bot did. Remember, if you are getting a tip for free, you’re the product. In TA I see a system when people are all acting on free preset “tips” and getting played by the more sophisticated market participants. Again, you have to beat that Wall Street monkey.
  1. If you still don’t agree that TA is bogus, think about it this way: If TA was real, Wall Street would have figured it out decades ago and we would have TA funds that would be beating the market. We don’t.
  2. If you still don’t agree that TA is bogus and that its real and well, proven, then you must think that all smart traders use them. Now follow that logic forward and think about what would happen if every smart trader pushing big money followed TA. The signals would only last for a split second and would then be overwhelmed by people acting on them, making them impossible to leverage. This is essentially what the efficient market theory postulates for all information, including TA.
OK, the one last item. Read this weekly newsletter – You can sign up at the bottom. It is free, so they’re selling something, right? 😉 From what I can tell, though, Evan is a straight-up guy who posts links and almost zero editorial comments.
Happy 2018.

Day 7: I will post this guide regularly until available solutions like SegWit & order batching are mass adopted, the mempool is empty once again, and tx fees are low. Do you want low tx fees, because this is how you get low tx fees

TL/DR
Bitcoin users can help lower transaction fees and improve bitcoin by switching to SegWit addresses and encourage wallets/exchanges to do the same.
SUMMARY
Segregated Witness (SegWit) was activated on the Bitcoin network August 24 2017 as a soft fork that is backward compatible with previous bitcoin transactions (Understanding Segregated Witness). Since that time wallets and exchanges have been slow to deploy SegWit, some admitting in December 2017 that they have not even started work on integrating it. Others, such as Zebpay in India have already implemented SegWit and are reaping the benefits of reduced transaction fees. If bitcoin users demand SegWit now it will temporarily relieve the transaction backlog while more even more advanced solutions such as Lightning are developed.
Batching is another great way that exchanges can reduce their fees. See: Saving up to 80% on Bitcoin transaction fees by batching payments. Despite the benefits of batching, some exchanges have been slow to implement it.
There is an opportunity now for all bitcoin users to individually contribute to help strengthen and improve the bitcoin protocol. At this point, the process requires a bit of work/learning on the part of the user, but in doing so you'll actually be advancing bitcoin and leaving what could turn out to be a multi-generational legacy for humanity.
MEMPOOL/SEGWIT STATISTICS
BACKGROUND
On Dec 18 Subhan Nadeem has pointed out that:
If every transaction in the Bitcoin network was a SegWit transaction today, blocks would contain up to 8,000 transactions, and the 138,000 unconfirmed transaction backlog would disappear instantly. Transaction fees would be almost non-existent once again.
A few thousand bitcoin users from /Bitcoin switching to making their next transactions SegWit transactions will help take pressure off the network now, and together we can encourage exchanges/wallets to rapidly deploy SegWit for everyone ASAP. Let's make 80%+ SegWit happen fast. You can help by taking one or more of the action steps below.
ACTION STEPS
  1. If your favorite wallet has not yet implemented SegWit, kindly ask them to do so immediately. In the meantime start using a wallet that has already implemented SegWit.
  2. If your favorite exchange has not yet implemented SegWit, try to avoid making any further purchases of bitcoin at that exchange and politely inform them that if they do not enable SegWit within 30-days they will lose your business. Sign-up for an account at a SegWit deployed/ready exchange now and initiate the verification process so you'll be ready to bail
  3. Help educate newcomers to bitcoin about the transaction issue, steer them towards SegWit wallets from day one, and encourage them to avoid ever purchasing bitcoin through non-SegWit ready exchanges that are harming bitcoin.
  4. Spread the word! Conact individuals, websites, etc that use bitcoin, explain the benefits of SegWit to everyone, and request they make the switch
IMPORTANT NOTE: The mempool is currently still quite backlogged. If you are a long-term holder and really have no reason to move your bitcoins at this time, wait until the mempool starts to clear and transaction fees go down before moving your bitcoins to a SegWit address or SegWit friendly exchange.

FAQs
If I'm a HODLer, will it help to send my BTC to a SegWit address now?
  • No, just get ready now so that your NEXT transaction will be to a SegWit wallet. Avoid burdening the network with any unneccessary transactions for now.
Why is SegWit adoption going so slowly? Is it a time-consuming process, is there risk involved, is it laziness, or something else?
  • SegWit will require some extra work to be done right and securely. Also, most exchanges let the user pay the fee, and up to now users have not been overly concerned about fees so for some exchanges it hasn't been a priority.
Once Segwit is FULLY adopted, what do we see the fees/transaction times going to?
  • Times stay the same - fees will go down. How much and for how long depends on what the demand for transactions will be at that time.
What determines bitcoin transaction fees, to begin with?
  • Fees are charged per byte of data and are bid up by users. Miners will typically include the transaction with the highest fee/byte first.
Can you please tell me how to move my bitcoins to SegWit address in Bitcoin core wallet? Does the sender or receiver matter?
  • The Bitcoin core wallet does not yet have a GUI for its SegWit functionality. Download Electrum v3.0.3 to generate a SegWit address.
    A transaction between two SegWit addresses is a SegWit transaction.
    A transaction sent from a SegWit address to a non-SegWit address is a SegWit transaction.
    A transaction sent from a non-SegWit address to a SegWit address is NOT a SegWit transaction. You can send a SegWit Tx if the sending address is a SegWit address.
    Source: HowToToken
What wallet are you using to "batch your sends"? And how can I do that?
  • Using Electrum, the "Tools" menu option: "Pay to many".
    Just enter your receive addresses and the amounts for each, and you can send multiple transactions for nearly the price of one.
Why doesn't the Core Wallet yet support SegWit?
  • The Core Wallet supports SegWit, but its GUI doesn't. The next update will likely have GUI support built-in
Why isn't a large exchange like Coinbase SegWit ready & deployed when much smaller exchanges already are? Why do they default to high fees? Where is the leadership there?
P2SH/bech32 FAQs
What are the two SegWit address formats and why do they exist?
  • It's been a challenge for wallet developers to implement SegWit in a way that users can easily and without too much disruption migrate from legacy to SegWit addresses. The first wallets to enable SegWit addresses – Ledger, Trezor, Core, GreenAddress – use so-called “nested P2SH addresses.” This means they take the existing Pay 2 Script Hash address – starting with a “3” – and put a SegWit address into it. This enables a high grade of compatibility to existing wallets as every wallet is familiar with these addresses, but it is a workaround which results in SegWit transactions needing around 10 percent more space than they otherwise would.
    Electrum 3.0 was the first wallet to use bech32 addresses instead of nested p2sh addresses.
    Source: BTCManager.com
What is the difference in address format between SegWit address formats P2SH and bech32?
  • P2SH starts with "3..."
    bech32 starts with "bc1..."
Which addresses can I send from/to?
  • P2SH Segwit addresses can be sent to using older Bitcoin software with no Segwit support. This supports backwards compatibility
    bech32 can only be sent to from newer Bitcoin software that support bech32. Ex: Electrum
    Source: BitcoinTalk.org
Why did ThePirateBay put up two Bitcoin donation addresses on their frontpage, one bech32 and one not?
  • The address starting with a "3..." is a P2SH SegWit address that can be sent BTC from any bitcoin address including a legacy address. The address starting with a "bc1..." is a bech32 SegWit address that can only be sent to from newer wallets that support bech32.
