Bitcoin’s Record Hash Rate May Hint at Price Gains to Come

Bitcoin’s latest bout of consolidation may end up with bullish breakout, as a key metric of miner confidence has hit all-time highs.

The top cryptocurrency by market value has clocked lower daily highs and higher daily lows over the last three days and is currently trading at $10,300 on Bitstamp, little changed on a 24-hour basis.

The cryptocurrency has charted the narrowing price range amid a surge in non-price metrics including a rise in the network’s hash rate – a measure of the computing power dedicated to mining bitcoin.

Notably, the two-week average hash rate reached a record high of 85 exahashes per second (EH/s) around 19:00 UTC on Friday. Further, mining difficulty – a measure of how hard it is to create a block of transactions – also jumped to a new all-time high of nearly 12 trillion.

Hash rate can be considered a barometer of miners’ confidence in the bitcoin price rally. After all, they are more likely to dedicate more resources to the computer intensive process that secures the network and processes transactions if they are bullish on price. Miners would likely scale back operations if a price slide is expected.

Hence, many observers, including the likes of Changpeng Zhao, CEO of Binance, and former Wall Street trader and journalist Max Keiser believe prices follow hash rate.

Bitcoin’s Record Hash Rate May Hint at Price Gains to Come

Bitcoin’s Record Hash Rate May Hint at Price Gains to Come


Article by Coindesk: Omkar Godbole
Bitcoin’s latest bout of consolidation may end up with bullish breakout, as a key metric of miner confidence has hit all-time highs.
The top cryptocurrency by market value has clocked lower daily highs and higher daily lows over the last three days and is currently trading at $10,300 on Bitstamp, little changed on a 24-hour basis.
The cryptocurrency has charted the narrowing price range amid a surge in non-price metrics including a rise in the network’s hash rate — a measure of the computing power dedicated to mining bitcoin.
The two-week average hash rate reached a record high of 85 exahashes per second (EH/s) around 19:00 UTC last Friday. Further, mining difficulty — a measure of how hard it is to create a block of transactions — also jumped to a new all-time of nearly 12 trillion.
The hash rate could be considered a barometer of miner’s confidence in the bitcoin price rally. After all, the miners would be ready to dedicate more resources for mining if they are bullish on price and would want to scale back their operations if a price slide is expected.
Hence, many observers, including the likes of Changpeng Zhao, Founder of Binance, and former Wall Street trader and journalist Max Keiser believe prices follow hash rate.

https://preview.redd.it/vapgqlijqgn31.png?width=660&format=png&auto=webp&s=f7dbc990a6f6f57cbbf16ce2bbafa193e49a8acf
Zhao tweeted on Friday that, “a rising hash rate means more miners are investing in BTC”, while few other observers stated that sellers should think twice before betting against the most secure blockchain — the higher the hash rate of a cryptocurrency network, the more expensive to 51 percent attack.
Put simply, Zhao is expecting bitcoin’s price to track the hash rate higher. It is worth noting that the market stands divided on the relationship between bitcoin’s price and hash rate.
Some observers believe the hash rate follows price and the metric’s outperformance represents overtly exuberant miners. Hence, reading the rising hash rate as a sign of an impending price rally may prove costly.
That said, the price is likely to follow the hash rate this time, as overexuberance is typically observed at market tops or near record highs. As of now, BTC is down almost $10,000 from the record high of $20,000 reached in December.
Also, the market sentiment is quite bullish with reward halving (supply cut) due in less than a year and the sustained uptick in miners’ confidence is more likely to draw fresh bids, possibly leading to a positive feedback loop.
All-in-all, the narrowing price range established over the last few days is likely to pave the way for a bullish move.

Daily and 4-hour charts


Bitcoin has charted (above left) back-to-back inside bar candlestick pattern over the last three days. The first inside bar appeared on Friday as that day’s high and low fell within Thursday’s trading range.
The second and the third inside bar candle was created on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
Inside bars indicate consolidation and lack of volatility and often end with an explosive move on either side. A break below the first inside bar’s (Friday) low of $10,154 would imply range breakdown and could yield a stronger sell-off to levels below $9,855 (Sept. 11 low).
A break above Friday’s high of $10,458 would imply range breakout and open the doors to $10,956 (July 20 high).
The falling wedge breakout confirmed on the 4-hour chart (above right) last week is still valid. So, the probability of range breakout is high.

/r/CryptoCurrency - Invest Smart - Guide, Resources, Links, and More!

Hello everyone!
Thought I'd make a post of quick startup content and compilation to get you started into smart investing. I hope you all like it! Here it goes:
Google and twitter is your best friend. (To a certain limit)
Google:
Click "News" tab, and search the cryptocurrency you are researching. Go for something reputable like CNBC, Forbes, and so on for better accuracy but also use your wise judgement. For example there are some very good cryptocurrency and blockchain focused websites. The key is to find the few that get news out fast and non-bias. If you not a certain website constantly bashing a specific cryptocurrency that has held a high marketcap for longer than 6 months, clearly there is favoritism going on. Lets continue.
Click "All" tab, and search the keywords in the following format:
I find many people don't know about this but if you scroll the tabs (webs, news and images) to the left; you will see search tools. Sometimes it helps to sort it by dates and play around between one hour and 24 hours.
Twitter:
If you want the news first, many organizations that operate in the crypto field use twitter. Using the same keyword formats above in twtter is very beneficial. Alot more useless info but sometimes it pays off to take the time to go through it. Personally, after searching I like to use the "latest" tab.
Here are some twitter accounts worth following, and would be beneficial to your investment solutions:
I did not post any twitter accounts that might be reputable but have had major negative controversy or viral issues in the past. You might also notice some twitter accounts are missing such as contributors and founders. I have nothing against those accounts. Some are very reputable accounts (that I think are amazing individuals), however the OP requested specific requirements in the post. I cannot guarantee that all the twitter accounts above are not bias, but I did my best to list the least bias twitter accounts. Outside of this post, I do recommend following some founders, contributors, and exchanges! You can easily find them by participating in there community.
Please remember that quality research and due diligence go beyond just twitter. Be patient and spend quality time researching. Less time planning equals less profit or less chances of profiting. It takes one minute to place a buy or sell order. It also takes one minute to lose 99% of your holdings. It should not take you one minute. Patience.

Potcoin Guide For New Crypto Users. (Beginners)

Beginners information to Cryptsy Currencies. By Jason Davies
To buy any other crypto currency the first thing you need is a set amount of bitcoins to buy other currencies as they are not on official stock markets yet. To get bitcoins visit https://localbitcoins.com/
The cheapest rates will always be the sellers at the top of the list you will need to look at trade limits to see if they accept the amount of £ you want to invest and buy BTC. Always remember bitcoin is currently the heart and soul of buying other currencies you need to have bitcoin to be able to buy any other crypto currency.
Bitcoin is constantly expanding and there has not been an article recently showing any signs of decline. The most recent talks have been bitcoin insurace, Google accepting Bitcoin and Ebay aswell. Since bitcoin has only been on the scene for a few years there is a big stigma behind whether it is safe or not. The answer to this question would be invest what you can afford to lose, keep upto date on the latest news regarding the coins you invest in and always check the current trade prices so you dont get ripped off. Investing in anything comes with its risks it all depends whether you like a gamble and whether you can accept your money being held in another currency.
so whats the big hype about ? Online currencies are different from the usual paper money you use everyday in yourlife. There are a set limit of coins. For example Bitcoin have a limited number of coins which is 21,000,000,000 in circulation. They will never make more and they will never remove the coins. This means the more demand and the more people using it the value per coin rises. In the real world banks print more money instead of letting wealth grow. The banks get away with defacing the currency every day so more and more people are putting there assets into online currencies.
What is mining ? Mining is the community helping the currency stay alive. If you send or recieve coins it needs 3 people to confirm the address. Confirmations occur Anonymously so trading is completly safe. Each time somebody confirms a transaction they get a reward. It is normally 0.00000001BTC reward for every confirmation taking weeks to make a couple of hundred pounds. Mining is only worth doing if you do not pay the electricity bill, you also need to spend thousands on a rig for it to be worth your time as there are now thousands of people mining the rewards become less.
When a coin is launched mining also allows people to mine the coins from the Developers so they are distrubuted fairly to first investors. Once the coins have been mined from developers mining will be confirming transactions only and the price will rocket as the demand will increase. This is why when you see alternate currencies the price per coin is really low, this is miners dumping coins for fast profit then moving onto next coin. It is best to purchase coins as soon as they are launched to maximise profits but you will have to wait a couple of years before finding out if it has made you rich.
What influences the value of a coin? At the launch of a coin prices will often start out at different rates. This is because the people mining are faced with a set amount of coins to mine per block. A block is a specific amount of the coins. As the blocks progress there are less coins to mine. Long term this is an advantage to all coins because the demand gets greater the less coins there are to be mined. When all the coins are mined the price is purely then influenced off demand. Most blocks start off with a large sum of coins to mine but not all. Some coins provide blocks to mine with small amounts of coin, this makes the coin worth more to start out with. I will do a short example below i hope it explains why coins are cheaper to start out with.
Remember once the first block has finished, the next block starts. They are not open to mine all at the same time.
1st block: 1,000,000 coins to mine 2nd block: 800,000 coins to mine 3rd block: 750,000 coins to mine 4th block: 600,000 coins to mine
So as more blocks that get mined the less coins are mined. At the start of a coin the miners dump the coins for cheap allowing you to buy a bulk amount of them before the coins success starts like bitcoin. It took 2 years before bitcoins price rocketed in value. Its always a smart idea to look at the max amount of coins in circulation and the amount of coins per block to fully determine its value. Using the blocks i have provided above imagine 100 people mining at the same computer rate each person at the end of "1st block" would get 10,000 coins., then next block they would receive 8,000 coins and so on.
Potcoin has 420 coins per block to mine so the coins are really hard to get making the value of it higher to start off with. If there were a few thousands coins mined at the end of its block the price would be far lower. If the demand was there.
are transactions really as fast as marketed ? Yes! I will use localbitcoins as en example. If you wanted to sell your bitcoins back you click on sell bitcoins and find a buyer with the best price. You then put in the amount of bitcoins you want to sell and click send trade. A live chat will then apear on the right hand side, you will wait for a confirmation of funds sent, check your bank online and then release your bitcoins. Selling bitcoins is a direct bank transfer so you see the money in your account straightaway.
Why do people trust bitcoin? People trust bitcoin because it is set up how banks were first created. With a set limit of currency any trades up the the value. Since the federal reserve etc was created it allowed banks to print more money effecting the value of paper currencies. To hard working people this stops there wealth growing, if anything it makes there wealth collapse which is why there is a stupid amount of loans and debt in the current world today. Many banks such as HSBC are costantly defacing the currency with scandals like the mexican drug laundering scandal for king pin mexican drug lords.
what did silk road do the price? Silk road was a website that accepted bitcoin payments. Silk road was a website that sold drugs anonymously but was taken down by government due to the illegal transactions. At first the price of bitcoin dipped but a week later the price rocketed. This is because it showed investors Bitcoin Developers are willing to remove any "bad eggs" from there currency which helped protect the coin even more.
Why do so many people use bitcoin? People use bitcoin to avoid tax and to stay away from bank scandals that could potentially have a huge affect on the value of there paper money. For example if you wanted to go abroad you would put all your holiday funds into bitcoin and when you get off the plane on holiday go to the nearest library or place you can access a computer to sell your bitcoins locally. This allows you to transfer currency without paying tax that you would do using the post office. Also huge companys are starting to see the advantage because transfering funds bank to bank come at a really high cost which is normally around 5 - 10% of the transaction. If you was to do a transaction with bitcoin it would cost no more than 37p.
Max keiser a multi million pound investor predicted by the end of 2014 bitcoins price could rise to around £600,000 per coin. So back to the question will it make me a millionaire ? The answer is simple "we are all hoping for this outcome" It comes with risks and a bit of faith. The best chance at becoming a cyrpto millionaire is to keep upto date with the plans each currency has to make it big. Most currencies get involved with the media to attract new buyers each media stunt seems to rise the price and level it out to a new higher price.
Will i have to pay tax on it? Nobody pays tax on Bitcoin because it is P2P person to person transfers avoiding paying tax through banks. A good example could be paying your friend for something in person you avoid paying tax and charges. This is why so many people and business's have started to use online currencies.
Crypto wallets The main bit of information you need to know about your wallet is backing it up and saving it to your computer. This will save the code given to send and recieve coins. Also the first time you download a wallet it will take a long time to fully sync the wallet. Please have patience with the first load, loading after the first sync will be really fast.
Can bitcoin become worthless? Yes the only reason bitcoin has become successful is because it is similar to how the internet works. It is the power of the people keeping it alive. Bitcoin works off demand. Personally i believe it will not get to the stage of becoming worthless due to it being better than any bank in the world as far as charges and the cost to the user. There are also insurance companys in the U.K setting up a system to make it even more secure. A coin called German Mark became worthless because it never made it onto trade sites. Nobody is in the position to say it will never fail because nobody can speak for the whole population and nobody can predict the future technologys.
Who controls bitcoin? Bitcoin is controlled by all the users on the network. There is no set owner who can just log in and change the value or amount of coins in circulation. Once the system goes live that is it its there to stay until nobody uses it. Developers can improve the software but cannot change the amount of coins in circulation, they cannot steal from peoples wallets and they cannot just turn bitcoin off. The best way to look at bitcoin would be to compare it with the internet or emails.
What does satoshi mean? satoshi is a word used to describe a small some of bitcoin. Examples: 2 satoshi = 0.00000002 BTC 20 satoshi = 0.00000020 BTC 200 satoshi = 0.00000200 BTC
So if you wanted to buy X amount of dogecoin somebody will tell you the price in satoshi, this is how much each coin is in bitcoins.
Example: i have 20 doge coin, i want to sell them at 200 satoshi. so the total cost would be: 20dogecoin x 0.00000200btc = 0.00004000bitcoin for the 20 doge coin.
the word satoshi is a term we use like pounds and pence. Its used to describe the micro amount of a coin.
Trade sites:
https://coinbase.com (very trusted) https://vircurex.com/ (very trusted) https://bter.com (very trusted) https://coinex.pw/ (very trusted) https://cryptorush.in/ temp log in:cryptorush password:Dsdhoide84983420 (new to trading scene) http://incryptex.com/ (new to the trading scene)
Keeping an eye on prices. There are many sites you can keep an eye on the current price of your coins. I am an investor in dogecoin, so i will use the website i use as an example to show you. Once you have loaded the website you will see at the top 3 prices for the current coin on seperate websites that hold trades this shows you the current buy and sell rate http://dogemonitor.com/
This site also allows you too look at the top 80 currencies currently on the exchange market. It allows you to keep an eye on the price, market cap, current supply and how well it has done over the past 24hours. This site is like my bible for keeping an eye on multiple prices at once. http://coinmarketcap.com/
I strongly reccomend making a social networking site devoted to liking or following all currencies on the market so you can keep upto date with the latest news that can help influence buying or selling a coin. Keeping upto date on currencies will help you if you want to buy and sell coins daily profiting off current trends in the market. Personally i am a big investor that likes to buy bulk of each coin, i do this because of what happened to bitcoin i have the patience to wait a couple of years like the millionaire investors did with bitcoin. I find daily trading a very bigger risk but that is my personal opinion it also takes up alot more time and can become a full time job.
I decided to make this article on some of the most common asked questions because i am a new investor that has also asked the same questions. It has taken me a couple of hours to write up. I decided to do this because i have spent alot of hours helping friends and family with the information. I thought id put information together regarding some of the big questions nobody seems to get honest answers from. I noticed when i first started alot of the investors that have been at it for some time choose to ignore new investors. I thought it was very rude and i couldnt understand why they dont want to help us new folk trying to put food on the table.
As i looked into it more and more spending a couple of weeks with my head in private channels studying what people are saying i realised they dont educate people because they want to be able to buy and sell coins cheaper to make a bigger turn over. I dont like greedy people i think its whats wrong with the current system we live in greed it has stopped all parts and all areas of life progressing. I believe greed has soaked up wealth into 1% of the population. Luckily i met potcoin!
My goal was to share as much information as i could and i really hope i have helped you with honest information. I understand some investors have children and familys to support so i have tried my best to give the most honest answers, i understand risks to everyone have a huge impact so i am trying my best to help everybody.
Bitcoin wallet address: 1FFD1XuS5oXeNwK9tw9LTcJaeqFvwXsEh5 Potcoin wallet address: PTBvrh4dUXhbEdtHG5SzKdtbCUdH9s7RfY
All the best in the world of cyber currencies. I hope the information i have provided has given you the information i once seeked. Kind Regards Jason Davies

I cannot guarantee that all the twitter accounts above are not bias, but I did my best to list the least bias twitter accounts. Outside of this post, I do recommend following some founders, contributors, and exchanges! You can easily find them by participating in there community.
  • Check the cryptocurrencies official Twitter account and sub-reddits. Also, I can proudly say that this sub-reddit (/CryptoCurrency) is full of information and great people ready to help. Keep in mind when you're using social media's don't just fall for FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt; in other words complete horse crap). Do some background research if the source is unreliable when using social media as a research tool.
  • Once again news websites that are generic such as Business Insider, Forbes, Fortune, CNBC, and so on. In terms of crypto generic news check out Cointelegraph, CryptoNinjas, CryptoCoinNews, CryptoInsider, and CoinDesk . If you're the type that likes news-feeds, you can try CryptoPress.
  • Follow all the main exchanges twitter accounts. Following them on twitter will keep you notified of any technical difficulties so you can avoid panic. Also they sometimes announce upcoming or newly integrated cryptocurrencies.
  • Cryptonaire is by far the most reliable source for cryptocurrency forecasts. Obviously always do your own due diligence and research; the site itself indicates that. Also if you do not feel confident about a new or low volume cryptocurrency target, be sure to check their verified section to avoid scams. In my experience they have not conducted any research on ICO's because they care about lowering their viewers risks more than anything. For the last year or so they have been working on their full web app launch, so its worth subscribing.
  • BitcoinTalk has a Altcoin Announcements section; it's worth looking for your target on their as well. However if the user is not reputable, than the source is unreliable.
  • CoinMarketCap should be bookmarked! It is a table of all the crypto default ranked by marketcap. If you care more about day to day, volume, and percent change then check out WorldCoinIndex
  • Read the whitepaper and determine which organizations and/or people will use it. Find out the population of the potential consumer. After that, do some reading into the consumer. Are they lenient on blockchains? Are they in need of a pivot that cryptocurrency / blockchain could be the wealthy game changer for the organization?
  • Check out the 'Community Info' section on this sub-reddit. They have a list of links to resources that can help you.
  • If you are the type that invests in ICO's, be sure to check for information about the foundation outside their site. Also find a real address, email, phone number, asset/secerities filing and so on. The more the better.
  • I cannot emphasis this enough, but get yourself a hardware wallet or even a secure computer to store all your assets! That is the only way you actually own your cryptocurrencies!
Please remember that quality research and due diligence go beyond just twitter. Be patient and spend quality time researching. Less time planning equals less profit or less chances of profiting. It takes one minute to place a buy or sell order. It also takes one minute to lose 99% of your holdings. It should not take you one minute. Patience.

A few thoughts - Saturday, June 7, 2014

Today's thoughts are all about altcoins.

Litecoins are not dead

Several people have started to agree with me recently that litecoins aren't dead yet. But I wasn't quite able to give a concrete answer as to why, until a comment reminded me that litecoins are the most widely traded of all the altcoins. BTC-e, for example, doesn't deal in phoenixcoins and ronpaulcoins. Being widely traded is a significant advantage, even if the coin doesn't itself have any advantages.
I'm not sure why ASICs are relevant to the price of altcoins. ASICs are going to be distributed amongst miners just like they were with bitcoins; this just makes the miners fight a losing battle with each other, costing each other money. As long as one person doesn't get all the ASICs, it doesn't have any effect on network security.
A while back, all the speculation was that litecoins would overtake bitcoins once Mt Gox accepted them for trading. In the interim, however, we have several major exchanges trading them. When an exchange wants to expand into altcoins, they don't look towards the trendiest new thing; the first mainstay they adopt is litecoins.
The other advantage litecoins have is that there is a certain amount of "lock-in" with other coins. I've already commented about the concept of technological "lock-in." In this case, you have exchanges like Cryptsy that denominate some altcoins solely in litecoins. I found out that there is a class of altcoins that can only be traded Bitcoins -> Litecoins -> Altcoin. Even if you don't want litecoins, you still have to buy them if you want to play the game with these "penny stock" coins. That keeps their price high because even if merchants do not accept them, they still have utility and "acceptance" by exchanges.
Also, a quick thought to ponder: a lot of the reason why people buy bitcoins is that bubbles crash, things change, and bitcoins are still around. Have litecoins reached the point where people expect them to die, they don't, and therefore they think there must be something to them?

Max Keiser recommends Darkcoins; I do not

Max Keiser put out a tweet trying to sell darkcoins to his followers, saying he thinks they will recover after their recent bug-fueled crash. Remember that Keiser was also the one who said to buy the essentially 98% premined Quarks too, and that failure alone might be reason enough to ignore whatever he says.
I like the idea that when an altcoin has a lot of hype, it's not time to buy it. Darkcoins may have some benefits, but there is so much hype around them that there is almost certainly a bubble there. Don't confuse that with the idea that darkcoins won't have a niche in the future. However, just like bitcoins, there are times when hype gets out of proportion to the advantages the technology has.

Today's altcoin mining report

Altcoin mining profitability is all over the map today. If I had started testing this pool back during the last cycle, it would have been interesting to see if we could deduce any patterns from this data. As you can see in the charts at:
http://shoemakervillage.org/temp/altcoins2014-06-07.jpg
there are about 20 coins that are constantly switching as the most profitable. This may be partially a result of those new coins that have extremely fast difficulty adjustments. The chart isn't as useful without being able to mouse over the bars, but it gets the general point across just seeing all the colors. People obviously do not value most altcoins for their specific features anymore; most of them are just a game. There is one trend that is not all over the place:
http://shoemakervillage.org/temp/altcoins2014-06-07-2.jpg
The expected payout of scrypt coins is at $1.33/Mh/day now, which is completely opposite the trend of increasing bitcoin prices.

The effects of orphanage

Some altcoins reduce the block confirmation time by making the coin ridiculously easy to mine. There's no advantage to creating an altcoin that has huge numbers of blocks, because then all that happens is that your "confirmed' transaction is more likely to get orphaned. In testing, I was getting 30% orphanage rates on some of these fast coins. Look at what happened last night in the course of a few blocks:
http://shoemakervillage.org/temp/altcoins2014-06-07-3.jpg
However, I'm still trying to figure out whether orphanage actually reduces the pool's revenue or not. The conclusion I'm coming to is that it only cuts miners' revenue from the expected value if your orphan rate is higher than the average orphan rate of the network. If everyone has 30% of blocks rejected, then the blocks are still being created at the same rate and everyone gets the same amount of money. You only lose money if you have more orphans than everyone else does.
Am I missing something here? If not, then orphanage is only an indicator of a bug or of monetary losses if I have orphaned blocks for long networks like bitcoin, where having another pool finding a block within a second or two is very unlikely.

None of the altcoins has the innovation that bitcoin needs

The only true innovation from any altcoin that would pose a threat to bitcoin is if someone came up with a yet-unknown solution to the 1MB transaction limit, that will be permanent for an indefinite period of time, and released a new coin with it.
Some people mistakenly say that people will switch to altcoins to get around the block size limit, but that isn't the case because the most any altcoin has done to resolve it is to make blocks more frequent, which only raises the limit to some hardcoded value. Raising the limit to some hardcoded value isn't "solving" the problem, it's just putting it off into the future. Don't make a mistake and buy altcoins thinking that some altcoin is going to address that limit, because none has.

Altcoin code is a mess

Altcoins are a mess, when you are trying to compile their code. If you haven't done this with many coin daemons, which most probably haven't, then you probably don't know that almost all altcoins are just clones of bitcoin with some minor changes. This is one of the reasons why bitcoins have such an advantage, because you can't be innovative when you just copy stuff from the bitcoin developers.
What some people don't know is that most altcoins aren't even doing that. There are a few altcoins that have changed little in many years, so instead of incorporating fixes that have been included in bitcoin since then, those coins never upgraded to newer block templates and they don't include the latest features. It also means that bugs that were later fixed are still present in those coins. Some coins, like namecoin, are in horrible shape and for many, it's a matter of time before this code aging causes some sort of security issue to be discovered.

Dogecoins are doomed?

Dogecoins are supposedly doomed. The idea is that the block reward is decreasing too rapidly, and the price of dogecoins needs to rise to avoid a 51% attack. I'm not so sure that the developers of dogecoins will just roll over and die, given how large that community is.
More likely is that if the price stays stable and more block reward decreases occur, they will release a fork to stop the reward decline earlier than expected. That will devalue dogecoins significantly. If the hashrate of dogecoins starts to drop, I would get out. I don't think the network is "doomed," but I do think that the only solution to the problem is to devalue coins, and you obviously don't want to be holding when that is announced.

Negative "interest" rates

Apparently, the speculation now is that negative interest rates are going to spread to the rest of the world, and that banks will start charging an account maintenance fee, along with eliminating interest payments. In that case, what is the purpose of using a bank? I won't be keeping a checking account if that happens. Instead, I'll close my account, buy a safe and store cash in it, using banks only to trade stocks. I don't think I spent a single dollar in actual cash for the past year before this, so this is a technological regression.
What kind of world is this where it is a better idea for me to store wads of cash in a safe instead of putting it in a bank, where they actually take money from me?

Unocoin raised $1.5M from Indian and Global Financiers

Unocoin, Bangalore-based Bitcoin start-up has raised $1.5 million a record high for any cryptocurrency venture in Indian history. But while the founder’s vision is to scale Bitcoin to the masses and address a largely unbanked nation. Along with Max Keiser, founder of Bitcoin Capital and broadcaster, Messrs Dixon and Keiser are among domestic Indian and international venture investors in this fund raise. It includes lead investor Blume Ventures, headquartered in Mumbai that played a key role in leading Unocoin’s Pre-Series A round, Adam and Tim Draper’s Boost VC, Barry Silbert’s Digital Currency Group,Mumbai Angels, ah! Ventures, and FundersClub in San Francisco. Digital Currency Group (DCG), which is based in New York City, supports Bitcoin and blockchain companies by leveraging their insights, network and access to capital. For DCG, their latest investment in Unocoin joins the US-based investor’s global portfolio of Bitcoin and blockchain companies spanning over 80 investments in more than 25 countries
Bitcoin adoption is skyrocketing in India. But then given that is the second most populous country on earth with a population accounting for 17.5% of the world total (1,267,401,849 as of July 1, 2014), it might not come as such a surprise. With Unocoin being the leading bitcoin operator in India, it might appear well positioned to capture expected growth in this market. Addressing the role of Bitcoin in the Indian economy, Bitcoin Capital’s Dixon, stated: In India, 95% of the people do not have credit cards and 50% are unbanked due to the country’s poor financial and payments infrastructure. In relation to the investment, Keiser, who is also StartJOIN’s founder, remarked: Unocoin is leading the charge when it comes to bringing bitcoin to India. The capital raised will primarily be allocated towards scaling out Unocoin’s business. It is understood that they plan to make a few strategic technical hires, make investments into technical infrastructure and further investing for security. Unocoin CEO and co-founder Sathvik Vishwanath, who has over 15 years of entrepreneurial experience building software systems in the financial and virtual reality industry, reflecting on the origins to the Indian bitcoin startup explained, They started from my small hometown called Tumkur near Bangalore. Their goal from the beginning was to make it easy to get bitcoin in India.
India has the largest gold, inward remittance, and IT markets in the world, all of which make it a perfect home for Bitcoin and blockchain technology. Vishwanath, asserts that they have a clear vision at Unocoin “Let’s Make Money Simple” and indicated to Forbes that they are currently adding c.5,000-10,000 new customers each month on their platform. According to Karthik Reddy from Blume Ventures, it was the belief in the team at Unocoin that encouraged Blume to participate. Blume Ventures expresses confidence that Unocoin will further alter the landscape and make additional inroads into remittances and e-commerce in India. Commenting on their investment in Unocoin, Harshad Lahoti, Founder and CEO of Ventures, who is at the helm of four companies in the financial services and consultancy space, they believe Unocoin will continue to be one of the strongest players in India’s booming crypto-currency market. Sunny Ray, co-founder and President of Unocoin, who has over 15 years of experience in business development in the robotics and financial industries, explaining the motivation for the startup said: they started this company four years ago with the mission to bring bitcoin to billions. Bitcoin opens up a world that simply wasn’t possible before.
In the future, Unocoin believes that bitcoin has the potential to take market share from gold, substantially reduce the cost of remittance and potentially bank the un-banked. Furthermore, Unocoin were the first Bitcoin company in India to implement a comprehensive compliance and banking like framework to address these challenges. Over the past year, the firm has been innovating swiftly. Evidencing progress, recently they launched a merchant point-of-sale (POS) app, a mobile trading app, an auto-selling feature for remittance users, systematic investment planning (SIP) to mitigate against volatility risk, integration with NETKI to simplify Bitcoin addresses, created an over the counter (OTC) desk for large traders, integrated with purse.io for discounts on Amazon, API for developers amongst other initiatives.
