Round up of Cryptocurrency News #3 Week 20/07 - 26/07

Pssst! Hey you. Scroll down for commentary!
Important/Notable/Highlights:
Special Mentions:
You haven't had enough news? Here is some more:
Speculation:
You made it! :)
First up, SORRY! This has been a late post, I have my reasons don't question them (if you must know I'll be posting in the discord - one time only haha). Secondly, I am sure you can agree with me when I say "Wow!" What an incredible week it has been. Last week I thought it was going to take a couple more weeks for more moving price action when it had only taken a few days which has seen Bitcoin reach and pass the $10,000 region. We have also seen the total Market cap for cryptocurrencies increase from about 280B to over 300B (308B at time of writing) within just a few days. A huge injection of liquidity, about 40B, into the market and just to name a few of the best rises in the top 20 (on Coinmarketcap.com), the price of ETH BTC ADA have given good performances/positive responses (With this I will start adding screenshots at the end of each week for timestamp purposes).
This may be a combination from Binance, Mastercard, Paypal, Grayscale investments, VISA AND the DEFI sector. Let me explain... Last week we read about Binance integrating with the company Swipe (SXP) to issue there own debit card expanding the use and reach of cryptocurrency to 31 countries within Europe. Binance's Q2 scheduled token burn of $60.5 Million, this figure correlates with its exchange, margin and futures trading platforms where approximately 20% of profits get burned to increase the price of BNB token (careful as the price has been steady after the burn).
This week we find out Mastercard's expansion into the Cryptosphere as they expand and integrate with the Wirex team to issue a Mastercard-backed Bitcoin debit card, thus further extending the reach of cryptocurrency availability internationally.
"The cryptocurrency market continues to mature and Mastercard is driving it forward, creating safe and secure experiences for consumers and businesses in today’s digital economy " "...Our work with Wirex and the wider crypto ecosystem is accelerating innovation and empowering consumers with more choice in the way they pay"
Mastercard is also reaching out to other emerging cryptocurrency firms to apply to become principal members [Partners] with Mastercard as they have relaxed their digital assets program and look to expand into the Digital Assets and Blockchain environment.
Paypals expression of interest in cryptocurrency facilitiation may bear fruits as it is said Paypal has partnered up with stablecoin operator Paxos (who is already in partnership with Revolut in the US) to facilitate trading through a cryptocurrency brokerage which will enable other firms to integrate cryptocurrency trading functionalities with them. In my opinion this looks much more promising than the Libra association they pulled out from last October as regulations.
Grayscale Investments clears regulatory hurdle as they have been given the green light for its Bitcoin Cash Trust (BCHG) and Litecoin Trust (LTCN) to be quoted in over-the-counter (OTC) markets by US Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).
“The Trusts are open-ended trusts sponsored by Grayscale and are intended to enable exposure to the price movement of the Trusts’ underlying assets through a traditional investment vehicle, avoiding the challenges of buying, storing, and safekeeping digital Bitcoin Cash or Litecoin directly.”
More green lights for Cryptocurrency in the US as regulators allow banks to provide cryptocurrency custody services (which may go further than just custody services). A little bit strange as it seems unnecessary and undermines one of the key factors and uses of cryptocurrency which is to be in complete control of your own finances... On another outlook this may be bullish as it allows US banks to provide banking services directly to lawful cryptocurrency businesses and show support for Bitcoin.
Visa shows support stating they have a roadmap for their further expansion into the Crypto sphere. Already working with Crypto platform Coinbase and Fold they have stated they recognise the role of digital assets in the future of money. To be frank, it appears to be focused on stable coins, cost effectiveness and transaction speeds. However they are expanding their support for crypto assets.
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, DeFI! Our very own growing section in crypto. Just like the 2017 ICO boom we are seeing exorbitant growth and FOMO into the Decentralised Finance sector (WBTC, Stablecoins, Yield farming, DEXs etc). The amount of active addresses on Ethereum has doubled but with the FOMO on their network have sky rocketed their fees! Large use-cases of stable coins such as USDT ($6B in circulation using ERC-20 standard), DAI, TUSD, and PAX. $114M Wrapped Bitcoin (WBTC) on their network acts as a fluid side chain for Bitcoin and DEX trade volume has touched $1.6B this month. With all this action happening on Ethereum I saw the 24HR volume surpass BTC briefly on Worldcoinindex.com
In other news, Bitcoin has been set as a new precedent in a US federal court in a case against Larry Dean Harmon, the operator of an underground trading platform Helix. Bitcoin has now legally been ruled as a form of money.
“After examination of the relevant statutes, case law, and other sources, the Court concludes that bitcoin is money under the MTA and that Helix, as described in the indictment, was an `unlicensed money transmitting business´ under applicable federal law.”
Quick news in China/Asia as floods threaten miners and the most dominant ASIC Bitcoin mining rig manufacturer Bitmain loses 10,000 Antminers worth millions alledgedly goes missing or "illegally transfered" with ongoing leadership dispute between cofounders.
Last but not least, Cardano (ADA) upgrade Shelley is ready to launch! Hardfork is initiated as final countdown clock is switched on. At time of writing the point of no return has been reached, stress tests done and confirmation Hardfork is coming 29/07 The Shelley Mainnet upgrade is a step toward fast, capable and decentralised crypto that can serve billions of people. With the Shelley Mainnet is ADA staking rewards and pools! Here is a chance for us Gravychainers to set up a small pool of our own. Small percentage of profits going into the development of the community, and you keep the rest!
If you read all of my ramblings thanks heaps! I appreciate it! I have added an extra piece of reading called speculation. Most you can speculate on by just reading the headline some others have more depth to them.
Another post next week for a weekly round up! Where do you think the market is going? What is in your portfolio? Let us know in the Gravychain Discord Channel
See you soon!
🍕 Bring some virtual pizza to share 🍕
Come have a chat, stimulate a discussion, ask a question or share some knowledge. We are all friendly crypto enthusiasts up for a chat, supportive and want to help each other with knowledge and investments!
Big thanks to our Telegram and My Crypto HQ for the constant news updates!
P.S.
Dr Seuss collectables on the blockchain HECK YEAH! and Bitcoin enters NASCAR, remember when Doge did this? it was like when Doge was trending on TikTok.
... Oh yeah did I also mention Steve Wozniak is suing Youtube, Google over rampant Bitcoin scams. Wait, what? Sydney based law firm JPB Liberty is suing Google, Facebook and Twitter for up to $300B. Just another day in the Cryptosphere.

Market Sniper Buy / Sell - algorithm Trading

https://www.tradingview.com/script/skKXLsnt-Market-Sniper-Buy-Sell/
Hello everyone,
After the amazing feedback on Market Sniper (THANK YOU!) V. alpha, I am more than motivated to finish my final release! It will be invite-only.
But I did get one type of criticism: "It'S tOo CoMpLiCaTeD To UsE. tHiS dOeSn'T hElP mE" Well, I am thankful for those inputs, but my opinion is that some people were searching for a magic pill. So I created one, overnight! And guess what? This script is as simple as it gets: I took the algorithm I am working on and simply used additions and subtractions of the algos signals,(Yes, I took the reversals signals and +bullish-bearish over Fibonacci periods. NOT HARD! and yes, I wanted to prove a point XD )
What's best, I don't need to guarantee you it doesn't reprint, that is profitable and demand 30-300$ a month for a heinkin-ashi BS script that actually doesn't work, like most people here, (Many people used it, giving a lot of feedback in discord, reddit and TV. not a single reprint). I am giving you a chance to see that for yourself over the next month!
Now, this script will be temporarily up and I will afterwards release my Invite-Only strategy that I have prepared with 80%+ profitable trades, 1%+ profit per trade, <0.35% drawback on every single asset I tested (still need to test FOREX extensively).
Now, with that out of the way, let's get into the technicals:
This is a script contains:
First, I need to point out I spent 3H fine-tuning this script for 15min binance - BTC Perpetual Contracts(it simply gives of the most frequent and best signals on my algo out of all exchanges). I firstly tried to find settings that worked on everything on my watchlist, and I did, combining solely the first 2 Momentum fields (I have 50+ cryptos and some traditional markets on this watchlist). The Algo works best on Heinkin-Ashi (extensively tested it without a single reprint on my algo, it smooths out the oscilators I use for it and increases the success rate). I use SuperTrend as the basis, there shouldn't be any reprints. BUT! since most scam scripts use heinkin-ashi as a way to mask their real backtest (and try to convince you it actually has 90%+ Wr) I will never release any of my work based on those kinds of candles.
How to use You can base your trading of the 15min Binance chart. if not, follow these steps:
Please, let us all know when you find great setting! Grab da profitz
REMEMBER! FEEDBACK IS IMPORTANT!

A Warning On Common Scams (Google Docs, Pump and Dump, ICOs, Fake Partnerships, Volume/Transactions)

As the traffic across cryptocurrency subs starts to spike again, it's clear that there is an influx of both new and returning users. I wanted to take a few moments to highlight some of the most common scams in the crypto space to help keep you and your investment safe.
While not all projects who fall into these categories are scams it is important to be aware of the issues and proceed with caution. Many legitimate projects can have frequent partnerships for example, but, its important to examine them closely.

Google Docs/Surveys:

One of the scams that commonly swoops up a number of victims is the common "help with this survey". Usually the attacker poses as student or someone doing research and asks a series of questions about your crypto holdings.
There are two attack vectors here:
  1. Google docs can be connected to multiple Google apps and include things like Google App script which can be leverage in spam attacks, malicious redirects, or to trick you into downloading malware.
  2. Google Forms, which is used for surveys, has the ability to let the admin check the box "collect user emails" on their survey. In this case, even without entering your email address Google Forms will provide the email address of any Google account you are actively logged into on Google, Gmail or in the Chrome Browser. This allows attackers to specifically identify you (possibly even your real identity) as well as use your email in future phishing attacks.
To help prevent this type of attack on our subreddit, we don't allow Google Doc surveys, even from legitimate requesters. Surveys would need to be approved by moderators and use platforms that are non-email collecting and not connected to scripting apps (such as SurveyMonkey).

Pump and Dump Groups:

Are "Pump and Dump Groups" profitable? Yes.
But, they are profitable for the people running them. Not for you.
Pump and Dump groups (often branding themselves as professional crypto "signal" groups) claim that they have awesome "technical analysis" skills and will pick winners. They'll show you charts of all these great trades they've made.
Many are free groups on Discord, but some will even ask users to pay (claiming this is what makes them "legitimate").
The truth is, there is no insight that these groups have. They look for small market cap coins and buy in themselves. They then announce it to the pump group where everyone starts to buy in and the price skyrockets due to low liquidity. During this time the group admin sells their holdings.
To those who got in early enough, a little bit of profit is made. But, their profit and the profit of the admin actually comes from the rest of the group who is stuck 'holding the bag'.
To the rest of the group, its easy to feel "oh man that was a great call, if only I had got in earlier" and they repeat the process.
Signals, insights and even TA are psuedo-science at best. If anyone had it figured out in a way that would work more than 51% of the time, the modern economy would be even more broken than it currently is.
The best you can do is use actual trading signals as input on top of your own research to make investing decision and avoid shady pump and dump groups. (After all, if someone really unlocked the magical analysis to help make 30%+ returns on all of their trades, why the hell would they need your $100 to share their signals? They'd be too busy sipping Mai-Thai's on their private yacht!)

ICOs:

Are some ICOs legitimate? Yes.
Are most ICOs legitimate? No.
Most ICOs have no product, a team incapable of building the product their pitching, and are proposing to build something that industry doesn't even need.
But, unless you are an expert in that industry, or an experienced venture capital/private equity investor you likely don't have the skillsets to evaluate those gaps.
So ICOs make flashy websites, name drop the places where all their talented engineers used to work (likely as interns) and do whatever they can to convince you to buy their token.
It's far too easy to make those sites, last year, someone even made an AI driven parody website that shows you how easy it is to generate ICO sites. (https://yetanotherico.com/ - every time the page is reloaded it is a new fake ICO).
Even ICO rating services are all "pay-to-play" and should be ignored.
In a world with IEOs and Token Sale Management tools, there are very few (some - but, very few) valid reasons to do an ICO.
IEOs don't guarantee a project is any more legitimate, especially on some lower tier exchanges, but at least their is an additional level of vetting.
ICOs were sketchy to begin with, but, given they are no longer the standard distribution method in the industry you should be even more skeptical of them.

Fake Partnerships:

Some cryptocurrencies have the idea that if they just keep on appearing in the news you'll cave and buy them and they can keep everyone happy.
Reddit and Twitter are constantly inundated with cryptocurrencies claiming they have a 'big partnership' with 'brand x'.
These usually equate to:
  1. One local division of the brand, had a low-to-mid level regional manager trial the blockchain product while the bulk of the company had no idea.
  2. The company is using a fork of the blockchain for their own private stuff which will never impact the public price.
  3. The blockchain got into an incubator or accelerator program run by that company.
  4. The blockchain competed in a startup contest or tech contest with or by that company.
  5. The blockchain is a customer of that company. (i.e. We run on Amazon AWS, therefore we list Amazon as a partner for helping to provide security to our nodes!).
You should be skeptical when projects produce frequent partnership announcements.
On our sub, we only allow partnerships that are announced via the official company website and not via third-parties or the blockchain projects site/community. This helps to curb a small portion of these issues, but, you still need to do your own research in-depth to understand the nature of these partnerships.

Volume/Transactions:

The last major common scam is volume/transactions.
Many projects like to "paint the tape" and "wash trade" which are methods of manipulating the trades of their token to look like there are lots of buyers and sellers at an increasingly high-price, when in actuality there are very few. Many exchanges are complicit in this because they feel the higher volume makes them look legitimate as well.
Do not rely on steady price increase, or high-volume to tell you if a project is legitimate, especially when it is only highly traded on low tier exchanges or if all of its volume is highly concentrated to specific exchanges.
The other volume issue is transactions. Blockchain projects love to brag about the number of transactions they do per day, the number of wallets they have or the number of tx/s they can process.
At the end of the day, any project worth their weight in salt can write a script to spam transactions to the network at almost no loss, and they can mass produce wallets quite easily.
Plus, since every blockchain processes "transactions/operations" differently it's extremely hard to compare these directly.
Many projects will claim that this is mass adoption, or that they clearly have the highest user base or most real world use cases because of these results. You should always take them with a grain of salt and do further research.
When projects are truly the most-used, or biggest in their field they don't brag about it, because they don't need to. They have become the de facto representative of that industry. If someone is telling you they are the best, the most used, etc it is usually puffery designed to bolster their position.

Why Even Bother With An ICO?

Why Even Bother With An ICO?

We have witnessed the end of an era.
We have witnessed the end of an era. For some, not short enough it was. The age of the ICO has come and gone, but what remained and emerged from the ashes hushed every voice on the crypto market with its wonders and visions.
Trading is the phoenix that arose from the ashes of the ICO market and has taken wing, embracing all those who have compiled crypto portfolios and have not abandoned hope of generating income on what may have seemed to be a lost cause.
Trading is the phoenix that arose from the ashes of the ICO market

Trading is as old as time itself, a phenomenon on which modern history, economics and politics have been based on. The modern world and financial system is no different, the only thing that has changed are the tools used in trading. And this is where the cutting edge of technology starts delicately slicing through the veil of what was required and peering into what is becoming a reality of modern crypto trading.

1. Bots From The Moon
https://preview.redd.it/zg037rn9k7931.jpg?width=751&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=45e8d3858848b322bd50c833ac18cada1d26b94c
The advent of automated trading constructs called bots was nothing short of a revolution in trading. These minor programs could automatically execute orders on exchanges based on programmed algorithms in an instant, thus saving valuable time for their operators. And time, practice, application, and community feedback have proven that none do it better than MoonBot.

What started out in 2017 as an attempt at a pump on the vaunted Btc-e exchange turned into a profound analysis of the exchange’s interface that proved to be unfit for conducting pump trading. It was clear that many people would want to play the pump game and make some easy money.

After analyzing their first pump, the developers of MoonBot realized that everything was determined by the speed of order placement. Profit literally depended on fractions of seconds spent on entering orders manually. The decision was to create a simple bot and gain an advantage over other players on the market.

Thus MoonBot was born under its first name Pump Bot with just 5 buttons, a simple graphical interface and a dream. The bot turned out to be so successful among the community that feedback flowed like a river on a daily basis and gave the developers the impetus to build on their success and evolve.

2. And That’s Why We Love It
According to statistics, the volumes of trade that MoonBot users generate are included in the TOP 100 exchanges. Considering that the program does not inflate its trading volumes is a clear indication that the main advantages of the bot came to the community’s liking.

The volumes of trade that MoonBot users generate are included in the TOP 100 exchanges.
According to the results of a contest for the best trader conducted by Binance on November 1, 2018, three users of the MoonBot terminal entered the TOP-24 best traders. That is saying a lot.

Three users of the MoonBot terminal entered the TOP-24 best traders in the contest conducted by Binance
It was the convenience of the interface that attracted the community and allowed them to stop mucking about in the complicated interfaces of exchanges. The security and the speed with which the transactions were executed and orders were placed were phenomenal and made MoonBotthe choice of all those seeking to rely on an existing and working product.
MoonBot allows full control over trading as users see every trade on the chart, not just the candlesticks.
● In addition, it has the opportunity to simultaneously set goals for obtaining and maximizing profit, as well as establish levels for fixing losses.
● Users receive a complete list of actions and decisions of the bot in the form of a text log file.
● Deals can be analyzed at any moment both on the chart with the entry point and exit point, and in tabular or report form in text or Telegram format.
Why us?
3. Security
Security
Security was paramount in MoonBot and the team implemented it by providing only local storage of personal data.
● The service never stored any personal data on a remote web server and technically could never gain access to it.
● The inability of the service to withdraw personal user funds from the account meant that the user could safely use the terminal for trading, receiving public information from the exchange and data on the status of their account with full security of funds on the account of the exchange.
The team wanted to develop and give people an even better tool. With over four thousand active users and not a single account hack on record, the task was to continuously update the product with new features, thus, in essence, creating a completely new product to cater to a broader audience.

4. How About The Future?
Community feedback is what products must take into consideration to evolve and develop, lest their path lies through the dark woods of profiteering and degeneration. The MoonBot team analyzed community feedback and then came a moment when the possibilities of the current platform had been completely exhausted. The logical decision was to develop a new product on the basis of the feedback, expand and scale into new markets.

5. Do It Right The First Time
MoonTrader has a myriad of advantages.
● It allows its users to trade manually on tick charts with each order on the chart or using the usual candlestick chart for lightning-fast execution of orders on the exchange.
● Users can set up built-in strategies.
● Create their own algorithms using the Modular Algorithms Builder, or trade off signals in full auto mode.
● The built-in instruments allow users to test the risks and potential profitability of their strategies on historical data before actually employing them in real trade.
● Users are not left in free-float mode on MoonTrader, as they can select the most successful traders and copy their trades in full auto mode on mutually beneficial terms.
● The roles users can undertake on MoonTrader are diverse as they can buy and sell strategies, offer educational materials, choose managing traders for Trusted Management, or become managers themselves.

As security issues are paramount in MoonTrader, development is being carried out in accordance with the best world standards and is meant to assure all users that hacking and loss of funds from accounts is impossible even theoretically.
The development team has always supported a policy of full transparency and regularly publishes real-time statistics, as well as proof of results. The same policy will be applied in MoonTrader and taken a step further as a certain percentage of the project’s profits will be directed towards community development.
As part of the initiative, a platform will be created as an educational resource with valuable information, where users can post their content and receive rewards for it.

The main features that MoonTrader will incorporate over its predecessor – MoonBot, are the following:
● A module of candlestick charts and candlestick trading, including indicator base;
● A fully redesigned interface for different categories of users (Novice, User, Professional);
● A platform for the publication of useful content on trading and the development of trading skills;
● A marketplace of algorithms and trust management services;
● Solutions for various platforms and terminals for Linux, MacOs, iOS and Android;
● A modular algorithm constructor;
● A module for testing algorithms on candlestick historical data;
● An infrastructure to store exchange data;
● A module for testing algorithms on exchange data;
● A module for quickly adding cryptocurrency exchanges to the terminal;
● An Analytical Assistant to help users navigate the market situation on the selected instrument;
● An infrastructure for the creation of AI-algorithms.

6. Back Where We Started
Token Sale
Scaling and expansion are not aspects of project development that can be taken lightly. Everything rests on money and finding that money means actually doing something, even if that means conducting an ICO.
Raising money for MoonTraderis a strategic goal that will allow the platform to enter new markets and gain access to a new audience of users willing to test new possibilities, new instruments and provide new feedback for further evolution and development of the platform.

Funds are required to create a universal model for adding new exchanges and accelerating development to give people the opportunity to take full advantage of the possibilities of crypto-trading.

Unlike many other projects with no clear vision of funds allocation, the MoonTrader team requires supplementary funding exclusively to attract additional resources for the development of the new product – MoonTrader, and the required sum is not astronomical, standing at only $400,000.
The allocation plan is in place and every penny will be spent on ensuring the further success of the new product.

Token Allocation
Most importantly, the team needs to raise funds to implement the ideas and feedback that the audience of the platform expects. Successful people within the trading community are making the project. And it is important for the team to take into account the opinions of experienced practitioners, and not just their own vision.
Even if the funds are not raised at an ICO, the product will be developed with the efforts of the project’s trading community. However, this approach will take more time and will delay the appearance of a useful product on the market.

7. What’s In It For Us?
The benefits that are ensured to all investors who decide to participate in the MoonBot ICO are based firmly on the fact that the product has been operating successfully on the market for years and the team will build on that success.

The number of $MOON Tokens is fixed and no additional emission is possible, thus supply and demand will work their magic. The burning mechanics that will be implemented suggest a deflationary model, as over time, the number of tokens available in turnover will decrease according to the burning model and for natural reasons.

With an increase in the number of project participants who will be making use of the terminal, the marketplace and other modules, demand for the $MOON Token as a universal means of payment between
community members will grow. Token holders will also get early access to the terminal and to special versions with extended features.

Roadmap
The product is still at the closed Alpha and Beta testing stage. This will give an advantage before other competitors on the market. The $MOON Tokens will be distributed in stages according to the initial stages prescribed in the project Roadmap and as goals are achieved.
Another key advantage that reduces spending is that the team does not employ any expensive advisors that would inflate token costs. The project has a community of traders and they are the main development vector, the most valuable resource that is deeply involved in the development of the product. And they are the ones for whom the ICO will be held.

8. IEOs Are All The Rage
Initial Exchange Offering
Many members of the community have suggested the IEO model for raising funds. It is true that the IEO is a newfangled and highly hyped instrument, but the MoonBot team has chosen to refrain from this approach for a number of reasons.
  1. First of all, many exchanges do not have liquidity at all.
  2. The exchanges often freeze funds and the project is left without money for development, but is being traded, and turns out to be a scam.
  3. Entering into a cabal deal with an exchange means full loss of transparency.
  4. The MoonBot team adheres to full transparency, and that it why it uses MyEtherWallet for its transactions and does not use any personal accounts.
  5. An IEO is investment in market making, and the required amount swells in proportion.
  6. As such, the risks that the product may not even be developed increase and the project loses credibility.
    Given MoonBot’s positive traction, reputation and dynamics, the team cannot risk any of these assets.

9. And That’s What We Have
https://preview.redd.it/yd2iu9y1v7931.png?width=986&format=png&auto=webp&s=d3bc1802dad5aa5324f580caa9ca712b3fd7cb54
MoonBot has a product and a clear vision of how to make crypto trading even more advanced and accessible to a broader audience. The attractive conditions for investors are there and the team welcomes all to refer to it directly, to the website or any other explanatory materials for clarifications or any questions. The project CEO is always available via social networks and via Discord and is in constant contact with the trader community for providing clarity.
If there is a chance to make money and create something valuable, that chance should be taken after weighing all the pros and cons. MoonBot has made the choice and will develop its product for the betterment of the crypto market and its most highly valued asset – the community.
In the following materials, we will describe the working product and the future product in greater detail and give all the necessary proof to back up our claims. If anyone is interested in effective crypto trading, then it should be done. Join the community of professional traders, share experiences and improve trading together.

Top 3 crypto trading discord groups

With crypto on the verge of a "crypto spring," the internet is aflutter with info about how to get your hands on more cryptocurrency before we "moon." Unfortunately, it's sometimes a little difficult to discern the bad from the good information and scams are commonplace. Besides buying and holding trading is another sound way to increase your crypto holdings. That being said there is a fair amount of risk for the novice trader, thus the rise of trade signals. The internet is teaming with trade signals at the moment and unfortunately, the preponderance are pretty bad. So here are the top three discord groups where one can find signals that will more often than not turn you a profit.
#3 Insider_Signal - Community Crypto. This is one of the biggest crypto discord groups out there, cranking out signals. By joining this group you will be in good company as the groups boast over 14000 members, which is pretty high for these sorts of groups.
#2 This goes to Cyber Signals. The name says it all, they post signals, that, more often than not, turn a good profit. The only complaint might be that their free signals are a little sparse, rare some might say. But, if one is willing to pay for a premium membership then you should find yourself with a healthy amount of viable trade signals. Apart from solid signals, they also seem to have good support.
You can find them here: https://discordapp.com/channels/399678786830073857/550816802855321611
#1 Finally, the number discord group for crypto trading is, (drumroll,) Cracking Crypto. Why are they number one? Simply put, they have the best stuff on the market; their signals are on point, their support is exemplary and the group itself is composed of enthusiastic and supportive traders of all levels. On top of that, they have a daily stream where they impart a tremendous amount of knowledge along with meaningful market insight. Its as if they give you and fish and teach you to fish all at the same time. They also offer a premium option for those looking to aggressively grow their crypto pile, It's really the best value for what is offered. Last month members of the premium group who acted on all the trade signals would have made a 246% profit.
This is their Discord: http://discord.crackingcryptocurrency.com
This is their website: https://CrackingCryptocurrency.com
This is their youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFb4w6SIGke1YMRoFwsdWCA
I hope this helps. All three are great options for those looking for both trade signals and a community of traders to exchange ideas, strategies and knowledge with.

Transcript of Open Developer Meeting in Discord - 8/30/2019

MEETING LOCATION: #development-meetings at https://discord.gg/XwjgvxSMeetings held every other Friday at 4pm Eastern

Pho3nix Monk3y x16rv2 at 4:00 PM Alright. Should be open now. Hello everyone!
zimm at 4:00 PM :wave:
Honey at 4:00 PM :wave:
boatsandhoes at 4:00 PM Hello!
Tron at 4:01 PM Hi everyone.
Jeroz at 4:01 PM Exhanges 2.5.0 info at https://raven.wiki/wiki/Exchange#Current_Exchanges Swap Services 2.5.0 info at https://raven.wiki/wiki/Exchange#Coin_Conversion_Services.2C_etc Multicoin Wallet 2.5.0 info at https://raven.wiki/wiki/Wallets#Multicoin_Wallets 2.5.0 Raspberry Pi node release at https://github.com/jeroz1/jeroz-Ravencoin/releases/tag/v2.5.1
RealBokito at 4:01 PM Hello everyone!(Man, this is going to be fun!)
michalsakulic at 4:01 PM Hi @Tron
Tron at 4:02 PM So, there's going to be an algo change on Oct 1 at 16:00 UTC
Hedger at 4:02 PM Hi
zimm at 4:02 PM A new coin?
Honey at 4:02 PM its the same coin zimm stop trolling ffs
zimm at 4:03 PM I’m very confused by all this because we forked assets with 90% hash consensus Seriously we didn’t pass consensus the first time.. showing we are indeed decentralized
ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) at 4:03 PM Current RVN Difficulty 234,095
RealBokito at 4:03 PM Scroll up to read the last 2 meetings.
Honey at 4:03 PM been in discussion for a long time, dont know where youve been hiding
LSJI07 - MBIT at 4:04 PM Hi
liqdmetal at 4:04 PM hash spike is a monster rn.
zimm at 4:04 PM I’ve just now been made aware of the dev meetings
RealBokito at 4:04 PM @Tron could you give a brief summary of the new algo (for the new ones).
Honey at 4:04 PM good community member
ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) at 4:04 PM Difficulty increased %100 over 24 hours. Can we get that change anytime sooner?
Tron at 4:04 PM Here's some of the thoughts and reasons behind this algo change. https://medium.com/@tronblack/ravencoin-asic-thoughts-e6c0079609e6 Medium Ravencoin — ASIC Thoughts In January of 2018, the whitepaper for X16R was published with the suggestion that it was an ASIC resistant algorithm. It has been about a…
Pho3nix Monk3y x16rv2 at 4:04 PM @zimm We post about it every 2 weeks in news channel.
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:04 PM game theory dictates that ASICs push back hard right now if they are there... why wouldn't they?
boatsandhoes at 4:04 PM Quick question. Can someone who has pull with the RVN asset enabled wallet for Android please get the ipfs link changed to be the same as the RVN wallet for IOS?
zimm at 4:05 PM Okay 1. Have the ASIC miners been bad actors? 2. Since we will probably need fork every 6 months how do we determine how algo gets changed?
Someone_2 at 4:05 PM yeah I've wondered if the date can be moved up but I don't know of the logistical issues being faced such as the exchanges and GPU miners for AMD.
GPUHoarder at 4:05 PM I would also move to try to accomplish a fork sooner
Hardman at 4:05 PM Question: How will ravencoin approach future ASICs? Will we allow ASIC or fork again? I personally think that it has no use but serve the ones with capital and supplies at hand. It takes very little time to design an ASIC for the new algorithm.
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:05 PM fork with bad syntax isnt good for anyone though
GPUHoarder at 4:05 PM I’m willing to contribute work to the abandoned AMD miners if that helps - but I believe pools and exchanges are the biggest barrier
Tron at 4:06 PM @ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) There's a balance between having enough time for everyone to make the switch and become aware of the change and adapt with code changes, and the desire to fulfill the stated goals of the Ravencoin.Pools are switching over. Most exchanges have switched.
zimm at 4:07 PM How important is decentralization to Ravencoin is the real question...
Honey at 4:07 PM important enough to fork obviously
Tron at 4:07 PM @zimm Very important.
zimm at 4:07 PM If an exchange gets hacked and the community doesn’t like can we just fork back the coins?
Honey at 4:07 PM sigh
Tron at 4:07 PM One could argue that ASICs trend toward centralization.
SpyderDev at 4:07 PM @boatsandhoes - I'll have a looksee at them and see why they are different...
zimm at 4:08 PM Well in defense of the ASICS they took the time and money to make them and we didn’t and now we are unhappy
Honey at 4:08 PM thats not a defense thats a reason to fork
boatsandhoes at 4:08 PM @SpyderDev thank you, its a huge road block to being a daily active user of the app, and even harder for me to get friends to be daily active users
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:09 PM you are free to make any improvements... just not TOO good?!? is that decentralization?
zimm at 4:09 PM Is it fair that people with GPUs have an advantage over CPU miners?
liqdmetal at 4:09 PM @BigEvilSoloMiner tell us about the fpga/asic technical restrictions that you posted about in mining channel. (perhaps this favors green team?)
michalsakulic at 4:09 PM @Tron I am concerned about China mining current monopol status.
ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) at 4:09 PM F2Pool increased 4TH/s in 36 hours while having 48% network hash
GPUHoarder at 4:10 PM @Tron assuming based on this, the dev team sees no reason or ability to accelerate a fork ahead of October 1, are there any concrete plans for what PoW related defenses or changes will happen after the fork? I for one would like to get back to the regularly scheduled development roadmap while addressing the clear threat/concerns
liqdmetal at 4:10 PM heres the post. "The Achilles heel for ASICs/FPGAs is FP64 + Large Integer Arithmetic + Memory access. The designers can go to heaven and come back, cannot beat a Titan V for well-chosen parameters $ for $"
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:10 PM where does this math come from? https://twitter.com/ravenwhales/status/1167442710925631488/photo/1 RVN Whales (@ravenwhales) Top 5 miners (24h): f2pool - 26.9% Unknown Pool A - 25.5% Suprnova - 24.8% Unknown Pool B - 8.3% RavenMiner - 2.4% Twitter
SpyderDev at 4:10 PM @boatsandhoes - I'll ping you after the meeting to be sure we look at thre right thing.
boatsandhoes at 4:10 PM Thank you sir
LSJI07 - MBIT at 4:11 PM Can we have the agenda?
zimm at 4:11 PM There’s basically no way to properly form consensus on what algo to change to and how often
BigEvilSoloMiner at 4:13 PM @liqdmetal They can always add memory hardness to the chain, which is something very easy to do.
DarthLordKrakius-(IamLegion) at 4:13 PM Here's an easy answer. You put in a hundred algorithms but only use 16 of them at a time
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:13 PM how are we doing on the roadmap? Messaging, Restricted Assets, Dividends? Postponed till post fork dust settles?
liqdmetal at 4:13 PM perhaps memory hardness is the only real hardness against boards with heavily stacked chips (asics)
GPUHoarder at 4:13 PM If I can make a small suggestion - reducing this meeting to a glorified #thenest is not going to be productive. If possible keeping to a controlled dialog with the developers instead of just shouting the same discussions had else where at each other would be much more productive
boatsandhoes at 4:14 PM ^second
Tron at 4:14 PM Topic: The algo change on Oct 1, 2019.
GreatScott at 4:14 PM I’d like to see expediting the fork on the agenda if possible
zimm at 4:14 PM So the algo change is decided here?
Tron at 4:15 PM We did the pros/cons. We did a survey. We modified the plans some based on the feedback we received.
zimm at 4:15 PM Okay so is it possible the survey was manipulated?
Honey at 4:15 PM omg
Tron at 4:15 PM The algo change was discussed here.
Honey at 4:15 PM mute this guy
michalsakulic at 4:15 PM @Tron What to expect after 1. october.
[Dev] Blondfrogs at 4:15 PM @zimm we have been talking about this for months. Where have you been?
zimm at 4:15 PM Might as well create 6000 discord accounts and have all the power
traysi at 4:15 PM zimm listen to the meeting for a while, and stop disrupting it.
zimm at 4:15 PM In price and marketing Chanel
Honey at 4:16 PM mute plz
zimm at 4:16 PM It’s a fundamental issue that needs to be addressed
Tron at 4:16 PM @michalsakulic Continued testing on the testnet code which includes messaging, memos, tags, restricted assets, and will likely also contain dividends.
BigEvilSoloMiner at 4:16 PM Slow mode please
Tron at 4:16 PM That's a long way toward the goals of the roadmap, but it needs testing.
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:17 PM new algo on testnet yet?
zimm at 4:17 PM Either change of protocol with proof of work or we change by discord/dev/community consensus.. can’t have both
[Dev] Blondfrogs at 4:17 PM New algo will be on testnet on Sept 3rd
boatsandhoes at 4:17 PM we can have both
Jeroz at 4:17 PM At this point Zimm, you are welcome to continue your rant in development or thenest. But quite frankly, you have been trolling here for over a year and if you missed that development meetings took place here every 2 weeks with [@]everyone announcements, you are too late to the party.
push | ravenland.org at 4:17 PM Hi friends, after much careful consideration and after spending much time over the years, I have made the hard decision that it is time for Ravenland to close it's doors indefinitely. The reasons being professional, financial as well as due to a changing personal and family situation, a downward spiral of my health, and, an unexpected shortfall in our finances. Therefore I have made the regretful decision to cease our operations. There are many small, and large contributing factors, some of us may be already aware. However I would like to thank the entire Ravencoin community for their encouragement and support over the years, and wish the community much luck into the foreseeable future. It is with a very heavy heart to do this, but after careful consideration I believe it is the right thing to do, whilst it is true we have achieved much due to personal and family reasons I am unable to continue under these circumstances of significant strain both financial and professional obligations. When I started this business I was just some guy. I believe that I still am just that - I hope people will not think less of me. We've achieved so much over the last year that should have been completely impossible and I believe @xittz @xittz in particular deserves credit for his wonderful contributions. We did not get everything right, but we were fortunate enough to get the important things right, and receive credit for the many things we did thru the generosity of Tron Black and Jeremy Anderson and many others. For that the community has my infinite thanks. I hope that wisdom ensues in our Ravencoin community and that Ravencoin can carry itself forward into the indefinite future to reshape the world as is the dream myself and many others have shared together. yours sincerely, push
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:17 PM one month of testing? we pretty confident?
zimm at 4:17 PM Whatever man I’m out then
Pho3nix Monk3y x16rv2 at 4:17 PM too much to read. one sec.
zimm at 4:18 PM Nobody can answer my question are we staying true to decentralization or not... but you have all answered my question
RealBokito at 4:18 PM Ravenland TL:DR: It's over
ksomani at 4:18 PM Sorry if this is already been addressed but is the changing the eight decimal asset back to one "dead in the water"?
traysi at 4:19 PM I removed zimm from this channel. I'll reinstate his read access to it after the meeting.
[Dev] Blondfrogs at 4:19 PM @ksomani right now it is dead in the water yes. DM me and we can talk about it
Honey at 4:19 PM ty @traysi
Hardman at 4:19 PM good call traysi
Tron at 4:20 PM @DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) If you're referring to the algo change, then yes. The Tiger algo has been operating in another coin, and that's the change. Adding it in front of three algos.
GPUHoarder at 4:20 PM Tough call. All voices should be welcome, but they should also be required to maintain decorum
michalsakulic at 4:20 PM @Tron Do you know cca when dividends shold be on mainet? Thank you.
Tron at 4:20 PM @ksomani You would have the opportunity to create the $ with 0 decimal places.
BigEvilSoloMiner at 4:21 PM Topic: The algo change on Oct 1, 2019.
ksomani at 4:22 PM @tron yes
Tron at 4:22 PM @michalsakulic It shouldn't require consensus change, so as soon as we're confident it works correctly.
brutoid at 4:22 PM What are the hurdles to bringing the algo fork forward?
traysi at 4:22 PM We've had good luck getting updates on exchanges and pools. Any chance of releasing a 2.5.2 that would change the fork date to something like Sep 15?
[Dev] Blondfrogs at 4:22 PM @traysi That would require us to have all exchanges and pools to update again
Tron at 4:22 PM @brutoid Making sure mining pools and economic actors (exchanges) are onboard.
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:23 PM jeez... this go fast and break things with the algo fork attitude is concerning
traysi at 4:23 PM I know @[Dev] Blondfrogs I'm just asking if it's something worth discussing.
brutoid at 4:23 PM Thank you. How feasible is it to bring that date forward a little?
Tron at 4:23 PM @traysi I think we need more pools and exchanges confirming the upgrade.
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:23 PM oct 1st is already "soon"
Honey at 4:23 PM the flood of closet asics is concerning
SpyderDev at 4:23 PM We also want to validate the transition on testntet.
BigEvilSoloMiner at 4:23 PM I do not think that the current changes are enough of a deterrent to keep ASICs away. What comes after version 2 and how soon?
Honey at 4:24 PM which is why pushing it up is being discussed
ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) at 4:24 PM The ASIC hash monopolization happening now reminds me of diff issue where DGW3 which was implemented pretty quick.
[Dev] Blondfrogs at 4:24 PM @DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) we are confidant in that date. The date was suggested by the community last week. So that is what we went with.
LSJI07 - MBIT at 4:24 PM so that latest version for all pools and exchanges is 2.5.1 just to confirm.
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:24 PM @[Dev] Blondfrogs im referring to the ones who want to push it up even sooner
[Dev] Blondfrogs at 4:24 PM @LSJI07 - MBIT Yes
LSJI07 - MBIT at 4:25 PM @traysi are you putting the pool back on for testnet?
Jeroz at 4:25 PM I would not recommend changing the date though. It would require a ton of "oh, could you update again please?" overhead when contacting all the exchanges again.
traysi at 4:25 PM Yes the testnet pool is already back up and on Sep 3rd x16rv2 will activate automatically.
LSJI07 - MBIT at 4:26 PM spot on so people can easily mine there to test if needed.
michalsakulic at 4:26 PM @Tron Do we know into what level the v2 algorithmus is stopping ASIC MINERS?
justinjja at 4:27 PM X16rv2 It just breaks current asics, and sends a message that we don't want asics.
[Dev] Blondfrogs at 4:27 PM We don't know the exact numbers.
ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) at 4:27 PM @Jeroz It gives the ASIC pool more time to push a final attack on the network to spite us for changing. They have an interest to damage RVN before Oct 1st
LSJI07 - MBIT at 4:28 PM on the plus side we can see what they could muster up....
qetwry at 4:28 PM what if they start to attack chain
SpyderDev at 4:29 PM There is some evidence that some of the ASIC use an FPGA as a controlling mechanism, the belief is that they can possibly stuff the tiger algo into the FPGA. We don't think all of the ASICS are going to be able to adjust to this change.
Honey at 4:29 PM @GPUHoarder can that little spartan do that?
Someone_2 at 4:29 PM yeah them attacking the chain is a castrophic scenario I thought of a few nights ago but I felt it was too paranoid to worth mentioning earlier.
[Dev] Blondfrogs at 4:29 PM attacking the chain? can you give an example?
justinjja at 4:30 PM 51% I would assume
Someone_2 at 4:30 PM I've wondered if they hit with repeated 51% attacks if it would slowly obliterate the coin
LSJI07 - MBIT at 4:30 PM a reorg is not possible beyond 60 [email protected] and the exchanges wouldn't accept anything under 60 blocks due to that so a 51 percent plus attack is just buying the time and block rewards.
ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) at 4:30 PM Algo fix will brick their investment. They would surely like to brick our change.
[Dev] Blondfrogs at 4:30 PM 51% need an exchange, and all exchanges are above our max repo depth. This should make this type of attack no possible as far as we know
SuperLuminal at 4:30 PM I can give an example of attacking the chain. Vertcoin.
Jeroz at 4:30 PM going to be really expensive to keep doing it while the max reorg depth keeps them from double spending
LSJI07 - MBIT at 4:31 PM They just want the ravens lol...
coltrain at 4:31 PM if they have had a near majority or more hash for X amount of months, I think they're prob pretty happy with their old ROI, why attack chain?
GPUHoarder at 4:31 PM I do think a fork being moved up in response sends a clearer signal that ASICs are wasted investment
Tron at 4:31 PM @qetwry They can mine the chain. I agree with @zimm that this is a different type of upgrade that the usual BIP9 upgrade. If the exchanges don't want to switch then it could be an issue. Otherwise, on Oct 1, the "attackers" mining other-RVN will be on a non-economic coin. Anyone can do this at any time.
ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) at 4:31 PM They have incentive to attak the chain that is leaving their ASICs to remainthe superior chain..
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:32 PM weird that "incentives" are a concern now...
Saphire at 4:32 PM Arent u giving the ASICS creators to adapt the new algo by testing it 25-30 days ?
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:32 PM they had an incentive to play nice once upon a time
SuperLuminal at 4:32 PM I think TradeOgre only requires 30 confirmations on RVN, and isn't the max reorg depth 60 blocks?
Tron at 4:33 PM @ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) The ASICs may adapt, but it is costly as new chips need to be manufactured.
GPUHoarder at 4:33 PM Regarding the current ASICS - all ASICS use very small FPGA chips as comms controllers. They can’t actually run any meaningful algorithms
ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) at 4:33 PM Right and now they are filling their bags to adapt. The sooner you cut them off the less funds they have
SpyderDev at 4:34 PM 25-30 days is a super short turnaround for burning a new ASIC chip. It is possible, but would cost a fortune.
GPUHoarder at 4:34 PM There are chips that will be ready for the fork
ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) at 4:34 PM How many days was DGW implemented? Bruce didn't even know about it lol
GPUHoarder at 4:34 PM I have that on pretty good authority I can share privately with the devs
TJay at 4:34 PM just my thoughts: Another path to make all parties "happy" is to develop multialgo chain: 1) one hash algo what stronglu favor GPU (general purpose) harware. 2) the second algo what strongly favor FPGA hardware. Something like Digibyte approach with their Odocrypt hash algo, it's like just sboxes with random exchanges, XOR and the sboxes are randomized every 10 days. 3)third hash algorithm what strongly favor ASIC hardware - custom slightly modified any SHA3 candidate. Something similar was done by Veriblock team with Blake2. That approach would do Ravencoin network much more secure and decentralized, imho
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:34 PM so what is our "metric" for a successful ASIC fork? 20%+ reduction in nethash?
GPUHoarder at 4:35 PM This is an economic deterrent fork not a technical deterrent. We said this in the last meeting
Tron at 4:35 PM There's nothing inherently evil about ASICs, but given enough of them, it tends to make the more distributed GPU (or CPU) mining unprofitable. In this particular case, the existing ASICs aren't much of a threat, but when we asked the community the overwhelming response was that the algo should be changed.
michalsakulic at 4:35 PM @Tron did you implemented v2 into ASIC and see effects?
LSJI07 - MBIT at 4:35 PM The superior chain is the one people place value in. I don't believe that the chain is seen as superior just on the increased hashpower with the majority of hash by a single large actor. Benevolent or malevolent. The chain with more decentralised hash in more pools etc wold be more successful.
brutoid at 4:35 PM This is my concern too, that the ASIC manufacturers haven't been idle and are now probably funding the next ASIC with this extra hash we've seen
BigEvilSoloMiner at 4:35 PM @Tron Is X16Rv2 set in stone or still open for suggestions?
GPUHoarder at 4:36 PM @Tron are you aware (I assume you are) of the significant hashrate jump as all the manufacturing lines for the ASICs were double timed to extract as much sunk cost from initial development as possible?
LSJI07 - MBIT at 4:37 PM @TJay the multialgo approach is flawed generally and creates attack vectors in adjusting each algo and speed to match 1 min block. Not a solution imho.
SpyderDev at 4:37 PM @BigEvilSoloMiner For this first change X16Rv2 is pretty set. We would hate to make the exchanges, pools, miners all update multiple times in short order. Another algo change in the future is likely and open for ideas and suggestions.
GPUHoarder at 4:37 PM What is happening right now is a cost recovery strategy - simple business decision. The fork seems very locked in - the cost for masks was already paid, the best option is kick out as many cheap chips as possible from those masks and run them as fast as possible to try to recover costs.
Hedger at 4:38 PM I Propose that with the Fork on October 1, 2019 the total Planned Supply for Ravencoin be reduced from 21 Billion down to 16 Billion.
ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) at 4:38 PM Current RVN Difficulty 255,642 It will be 500,000 before the weekend is over
Hedger at 4:38 PM And any future Fork to follow the supply be reduced again down to 11 Billion. And then to split the difference with the outstanding current float. This would be in addition to the burning of the Ravencoins upon purchase of an Asset, etc.
Tron at 4:38 PM Yes, we saw the recent hash rate jump. x16rv2 is set for now. The damage / uncertainty that would result from a change now would be worse than the status quo.
BigEvilSoloMiner at 4:39 PM Thanks
GPUHoarder at 4:39 PM I can agree with that. I am suggesting only that we set expectations within the community
ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) at 4:39 PM Why is this different thought than DGW3 expidition?
Saphire at 4:39 PM What we all want is to bring back GPU miners back to the project and bring out a better product with an effective participation? If this is the case, then we should keep ASICS away from this project in the most effective way because all they do is dig and sell on a daily basis.
GPUHoarder at 4:39 PM That this fork is expected as a signal and economic deterrent not a strong technical challenge
Someone_2 at 4:39 PM To my knwoledge DGW never involved the exchanges.
SpyderDev at 4:39 PM @ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) - It was the consensus of the community. We proposed earlier and later dates...
GPUHoarder at 4:39 PM To head off mis-information wars
ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) at 4:40 PM We can't do consenus anymore
SpyderDev at 4:40 PM LOL
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:40 PM DGW was breaking the ability to transact... different than an actor with a lithography dept.
SpyderDev at 4:40 PM True
N00BYDOO at 4:40 PM I am shutting my rigs off today. This is stupid
qetwry at 4:41 PM what other topics are important today for the dev meeting?
Hedger at 4:41 PM Where does the Community and Developers stand on the idea of Reducing the Supply of Ravencoin to less than 21 Billion? Thanks
boatsandhoes at 4:41 PM ^ are you serious?
Pho3nix Monk3y x16rv2 at 4:41 PM no?
Someone_2 at 4:41 PM I wonder myself but, I do wonder that it's not something good to do to the commnity and project.
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:41 PM we have a burn address if you want to contribute to reduction of supply
TJay at 4:41 PM @LSJI07 - MBIT didn't saw that issue with Digibyte chain
Hedger at 4:42 PM The Ravencoin platform, and others, will enable in short order the possibility of literally Trillion of Tokens to come to market. Hopefully the Ravencoin Assets, depending on the Rules and Regulations as the Framework will continue to unfold in this area, will have more than just a name and a promise attached.
boatsandhoes at 4:42 PM did this meeting get hijacked by trolls?
Someone_2 at 4:42 PM It would reduce the dillution but there's gogin to be other unintended consequences.
qetwry at 4:42 PM I am here for information from the developers...
Hedger at 4:42 PM I propose that with the Fork on October 1, 2019 the total planned supply for Ravencoin be reduced from 21 Billion down to 16 Billion. And any future Fork to follow the supply be reduced again down to 11 Billion. And then to split the difference with the outstanding current float. This would be in addition to the burning of the Ravencoins upon purchase of an Asset, etc.
liqdmetal at 4:42 PM changing emissions and the economics of the chain is kind of a non-starter at this stage bro
Tron at 4:42 PM @Hedger The supply is already going to be less than 21 billion because RVN is burned to create assets. I know your comment was meant to make a point, and point taken.
[Dev] Blondfrogs at 4:43 PM Testnet will be forking the algo on Sept 3rd. This is so that pools and miners and test the new algo. If you need to know more visit the #testnet channel
mali pirat at 4:44 PM there are rumors that there are private FPGA farm mining RVN, and that Tiger algo is already working on them. Why not put something like zcoin did with MTP, or monero invested in random X?
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:44 PM algo testnet is different than restricted asset testnet?
[Dev] Blondfrogs at 4:44 PM same testnet
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:44 PM cool
justinjja at 4:44 PM We will find out if the private farm is asic or fpga w/ this fork.
qetwry at 4:45 PM so oct 1 update will include, algo, restricted assets, and dividends?
Tron at 4:45 PM @mali pirat We looked at those options, and for this round we felt it was important for a relatively easy, quick, and safe change.
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:45 PM what is our metric for success with the new algo?
LSJI07 - MBIT at 4:45 PM @ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) the difference is that the DGW was a technical setting that Ravencoin initially had was not suitable for the way people mine currently based on daily earnings etc. The chain difficulty was creating massive inconsistencies in the block production and that was the issue to the dev team afaik.
ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) at 4:45 PM LOL Current RVN Network Hashrate 19.88 TH/s and Current RVN Difficulty 260,144
justinjja at 4:45 PM I think it just gives time to make X16rV3
TwenteMining Patrick at 4:46 PM https://rvnstats.info/d/FQ04TKdiz/ravencoin-statistics-v1-3?orgId=1 RVNstats Ravencoin blockchain, asset, mining, and exchange stats. RVNstats is a visual block explorer for specific Ravencoin metrics both on and off the RVN blockchain. yeah just stopped my farm on rvn ....this is to much hash in little time
traysi at 4:47 PM September is going to be a very bad month to be a RVN miner. What else is on the agenda Tron/Jeremy?
Under at 4:47 PM Fixed
TwenteMining Patrick at 4:47 PM double hashpower in 12 hours .... can't tell me that is just gpu's ....
Tron at 4:47 PM @DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) Minimal disruption to the network.
Under at 4:47 PM Cloudflare strikes again
GPUHoarder at 4:47 PM Any significant (10%+) sustained reduction in hash would be considered by me evidence that the fork was effective at its stated goal - remove the ASICs that were able to mine at the time it was determined to fork ASICs off
[Dev] Blondfrogs at 4:48 PM We have lots on the agenda, Restricted assets is being tested on testnet. Rewards/dividends is going to be added soon also. Lots of new stuff coming to raven
TwenteMining Patrick at 4:48 PM those big asic/fpga gonne mine this like crazy till the fork/algo switch and good chance they will dump hard
GPUHoarder at 4:49 PM I recommend those new to this to go review the discussions and theoreticals Monero experienced prior to their past 2-3 forks and how the results played out with regards to expectations This is not unchartered ground
ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) at 4:49 PM @TwenteMining Patrick That's OK. I'll buy more RVN from tZero
SuperLuminal at 4:49 PM I think it is important to be sure that all of the exchanges require enough confirmations to avoid a reorganization attack, and I think TradeOgre, for example, is currently vulnerable.
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:49 PM personally if i don't see 20% or more, i will think the fork was a waste of effort
SpyderDev at 4:50 PM We believe that all of the big exchanges are at 60 confs.
truedev at 4:50 PM ASIC performance can only go so far, chip design is physically limited at a certain point. I think we should ultimately allow ASICs to exist on chain and allow for a healthy competition between ASIC developers. Every time we fork the network, the community is only going to split apart. The project will lose momentum as a result.
michalsakulic at 4:50 PM Will Patrick Byrne still support RVN or focus more on crypto space?
GPUHoarder at 4:51 PM @DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) you’re optimizing for the wrong metric. The actual benefit of the fork is how many ASICs will not be made for RVN in the future, which is not measurable on chain. We can only use leading indicators. My opinion of course
TwenteMining Patrick at 4:51 PM Network Hashrate 19.73 TH/s 47.3 % unknown
qetwry at 4:52 PM uhh... patrick is yeah..
GPUHoarder at 4:52 PM Are there any active development areas that could use extra eyes?
Someone_2 at 4:53 PM Any ideas how Patrick's resignation will effect things, or perhaps not much effect?
[Dev] Blondfrogs at 4:53 PM Are always looking for code reviews on the develop branch.
Tron at 4:53 PM @michalsakulic Patrick still likes RVN but he has left Overstock. Jonathan Johnson also likes RVN.
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:54 PM If we don't see a significant reduction in nethash, then i am afraid that we have a lot of bois crying wolf. i certainly will fight much harder against those who introduce uncertainty to muh bag.
Tron at 4:54 PM @Someone_2 There won't be much change in the day-to-day. But I'll really miss Patrick.
liqdmetal at 4:54 PM we need to focus on features now if we are to improve, it starts with the code, not the algorithm itself. we cant control the mining players
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:54 PM amen
truedev at 4:54 PM ^ why chase a never ending battle
Tron at 4:55 PM @GPUHoarder Looking at the code for testnet that has messaging/memos/tags/restricted assets would be helpful. We'd love to have more eyes on that.
michalsakulic at 4:56 PM @Tron I think we all do. But he is greatest support if I am not wrong. He wanted to sell OverStock and participate more in crypto.
GPUHoarder at 4:56 PM I’ll allocate some time to a review and get more familiar with it Thanks
Pho3nix Monk3y x16rv2 at 4:56 PM We will be wrapping things up shortly. Just a heads up so that we can bring up any other questions for devs before time is up
DirkDiggler (Fork muh bag) at 4:56 PM PB is free to shill RVN now that he isnt bound by corporate ethics
qetwry at 4:56 PM Would it be possible to answer the question of what the long term plan for dealing with asics is at the next dev meeting? id like it to be a protocol level solution that doesnt involve so much drama
[Dev] Blondfrogs at 4:57 PM I don't know if he will have an answer by next meeting but we can talk about it
qetwry at 4:58 PM thats my question until its answered. probably many of our questions
Chill at 4:58 PM I just want to thank all of the devs for their hard work. Brief comment but to the point. Thanks!
liqdmetal at 4:58 PM viva la rvn, let assets reign
[Dev] Blondfrogs at 4:58 PM Thanks everyone. Have a wonderful weekend.
truedev at 4:58 PM just keep in mind, every fork requires a lot of time and resources to successfully change the algorithm. I'd much rather see this being spent on more productive things.
Pho3nix Monk3y x16rv2 at 4:58 PM Thanks for all the questions. A bit of a different meeting this time around.
ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) at 4:58 PM My butt is going to hurt all month
BigEvilSoloMiner at 4:59 PM Thanks
qetwry at 4:59 PM super new moon today.
Tron at 4:59 PM Thanks everyone for participating.
ForkMe (RVN Classic Sr. DEV) at 4:59 PM THX

Why Harmony is one of the top IEO of this year

We saw a huge number of IEOs this year and had the opportunity to make good money. But the IEO project’s financial results have been steadily falling in recent weeks. Let's consider why this is happening and what high-quality IEO are waiting for us in the near future.
Reasons for the success of IEO projects
The financial result of an IEO depends on three main factors:
• The quality of the project
• The reputation of the exchange that conducts the IEO
• The right time to conduct an IEO
Let's start with the project's quality. Several of such IEO conducted this year: BitTorrent, MultiVAC, Blockcloud, Gate.io (GT token sale via Points), Thunder Token, Celer. There were strong teams and good ideas behind all these projects. And even more importantly, they were well known and anticipated in the crypto community. But the results were very different. For example, MultiVAC went down to the IEO price on the day of listing, and now its token is trading below the IEO price in BTC. To understand the reasons for this, let us talk about the next factor.
The reputation of the crypto exchange may be paradoxically even more important than the quality of the project in terms of obtaining quick profits from the IEO. And Binance is an undisputable TOP 1. It is the largest crypto exchange with the largest trading volume, where all the IEOs were listed with sick gains. Therefore, you need to look immediately at the nearest Binance IEO - Harmony.
The right time to conduct an IEO is also an important factor that sets the trend of the token price. If there is a Bitcoin price falling cycle during an IEO, then investors are likely to sell the token purchased at the IEO quickly in order to take profits. If Bitcoin price grows extremely fast and altcoins quickly fall to BTC, then this is also not very good for an IEO token price, because some investors will want to buy Bitcoin as soon as possible. Now Bitcoin has already grown significantly and reached a record dominance of 60% over the last year, so in the near future, I expect a favorable situation for the IEO projects to launch.
By following the above considerations, in the near future, we are waiting for one of the best IEO of this year. The project is called Harmony: it goes to the best exchange for IEO (Binance) and does it at the right moment. But let's take a closer look at how good the project is. I have read all the Harmony whitepaper and I can say that it is a high-quality product from strong blockchain experts. I have a diploma on the topic "Using private key encryption systems within banking networks", but I needed to learn more to understand some interesting ideas which Harmony wants to implement.
Here are Harmony's TOP 3 features in my opinion:
  1. Harmony uses Fast Byzantine Fault Tolerance (FBFT) as a consensus protocol, but the validators themselves are selected based on Proof-of-Stake (PoS). Therefore, each of us has the opportunity to become a validator.
  2. Harmony implements Deep Sharding, but there are significant differences from sharding implemented by other projects: Harmony incorporates PoS into the sharding process, which increases the security of each individual shard. Harmony includes a signal chain and many shard chains. The signal chain is the source of randomness and the register of entities, and the chains of shards store parts of the blockchain state and perform transactions in as well.
  3. To solve one of the main problems of the existing blockchains - low performance (TPS) - Harmony will apply the adapted Kademlia protocol using the RapidChain, which will allow the use Harmony’s blockchain for real multi-user tasks (DApps) which require high TPS.
Conclusion
Harmony Protocol IEO has high chances to become one of the best IEO of this year. Harmony deserves the highest rating for all three indicators: the quality of the project, the reputation of the exchange for the IEO, and the good timing for the IEO conducting. For more information about the Harmony project, I recommend reading their official website, twitter, Discord, Instagram

Terrible Token Tuesday - 12 ICO's That Don't Have To Wear Costumes To Look Scary

Same as every week, the Concourse Open Community is hard at work finding the most terrible projects on ConcourseQ and bringing them to you on Terrible Token Tuesday.
The Concourse Open Community is also #buidling several interesting (non-terrible, we hope) projects in the space. Check out our Discord for more on our very active community.
The terrible projects taking the lead this week are:
Excolony - https://concourseq.io/Q/Excolony Excolony’s team thinks it’ll be the best centralized exchange in the world. Not surprising from a bunch of marketers with zero technical talent. And their gimmick of crediting investors with double their initial deposit seems easily exploitable and likely to bankrupt these naïve marketers. Aside from all that, we hesitate to entrust our hard-earned funds to a project that can’t even spell “Welcome.”
Kryptoin - https://concourseq.io/Q/Kryptoin Kryptoin’s inexperienced team maintains the delusion that they can succeed with crypto ETFs despite the failures of all major players so far. Hard to imagine the SEC taking them seriously with their cartoon CFO, advisor who manages a VC with a WordPress website, and failure to appreciate that “-oin” really isn’t a suffix (it isn’t “Bitoin,” is it?)
Zaza - https://concourseq.io/Q/Zaza Zaza is the brainchild of longtime NBA center Zaza Pachulia. jk, it’s worse than that - narcissistically named after its CEO, Zaza claims to be some kind of B2B solution, but its “MVP” is just a clunky webstore full of stock images. As Mr. Pachulia surely would understand, a B2B MVP worthy of investors’ attention should involve viable blockchain infrastructure without an unnecessary token.
Trecento Blockchain Capital - https://concourseq.io/Q/Trecento_Blockchain_Capital TBC’s trying to raise 20 MM euros for a token whose supply is listed as “Capped First Come Best Served-basis, variable supply.” Let us know if you figure out what that means. And the token’s only apparent uses are a declining discount on management fees and participation in a questionable system of non-binding voting for potential investments. No on TBC!
Cryptocurve - https://concourseq.io/Q/Cryptocurve Cryptocurve’s ploy to lure investors with a 300% presale bonus won’t work on us. As for tech, we might be impressed by the working wallet if it wasn’t just a repackaged MyCrypto fork with no recent commits. This team is nowhere near its lofty goal of creating a fiat gateway, and we can’t see how an ICO for a pointless token on Wanchain will help get them there.
Ethedge - https://concourseq.io/Q/Ethedge What’s there to learn from Ethedge? That “No ICO” doesn’t always mean “No Scam.” This project has no team (arguably an improvement over its previously-listed fake team). And it apparently plans to create money out of thin air - and a lot of money at that. Check out the link for more information on this blatant scam, caught first by our friends on the ethtrader mod team!
Announcement: 🌮 Layr2’s new site has launched! 🌮
If you're not familiar with Layr2, it’s is a manipulation-resistant curated source of high-signal blockchain links brought to you by the Concourse Open Community. Anybody can join our Discord and see it all happen in real time, and you can play a more active role in the process by applying to become a Curator.
Layr2’s been operating for a while now, and we’ve been happy with the quality of content that comes out of it. But everybody knows that vowels are sooo 2017, so we dropped the “e” and are consolidating the feed into a brand new website with a pretty cool interface. Come check it out, get involved, or tell us what you think!
Lnks—
And now some previously featured terrible projects that’re still gearing up towards their ICOs:
EveryCoin - https://concourseq.io/Q/EveryCoin EveryCoin’s blockchain is poorly named Aaron (in homage to the founder’s name LOL) and will use an apparently made-up consensus protocol (called Double Delegated POS) that has zero references in academia. Well, who needs academics helping with a blockchain project when you have 3 military officers and 15 useless advisors?
Geon Network - https://concourseq.io/Q/Geon_Network Geon Network looks like it was fathered by a bunch of G2A ex-employees. If you don’t know, G2A is controversial at best. It was for a long period facilitating the resale of game keys and Steam accounts through stolen credit cards. Besides that, Geon looks like just a side thing for the whole team, all of whom are working on different projects, with some even working 5 jobs in parallel.
Kuende - https://concourseq.io/Q/Kuende After 6 years, Kuende only has 96K (claimed) users, if we are to believe the team’s number. But even that is hard to swallow, as Google Play Store shows only 10K lifetime downloads, and Kuende’s activity on Apple’s App Store is not even enough for a handful of reviews. But not all is doom and gloom, Kuende has one major achievement under its belt, and that is launching an ICO!
Bountie - https://concourseq.io/Q/Bountie Bountie’s ICO seems to have suffered several setbacks, including postponement. Maybe from interest? We’re not sure. But even with the delays, the MVP that was planned for launch around the old ICO date is still not available. Delays like this in the crowded gaming space will not help with Bountie’s reputation for shipping.
Blokbiz - https://concourseq.io/Q/blokbiz Blokbiz is just another ICO for a platform meant to “fix” ICOs. Well such a noble endeavour rarely necessitates an ICO (Token Foundry and Coinlist are living proof of that). Now selling tokens for trading is one thing, but selling tokens and - instead of locking them - warning any would-be transferers that their tokens will be burned is pretty dumb. Good luck finding investors even dumber.
Brikbit - https://concourseq.io/Q/brikbit The CEO publicly boasts about having worked since 2015 on Brikbit, yet the website was just created in February 2018. And if we were naïve enough to take that claim at face value, it seems that the project has achieved nothing in its 4 years of existence, except of course having an ICO.
The ConcourseQ team would like to thank everybody that helped on these DDs and all the others!

If you are struggling with crypto trading or if you are new to trading this may be a good start for you.
The strategy I designed analyze several indicators on every candle in order to detect best entries or exits in the market for any asset you want
The strategy was able to attract several crypto traders together because of the success of it and now most of them are hanging in a discord group sharing signals to each other. Feel free to join if you want to.

There is a guide for the strategy that you can read in the link below in order for new joiners to understand how to use it properly:

Top crypto trading discord groups

With crypto on the verge of a "crypto spring," the internet is aflutter with info about how to get your hands on more cryptocurrency before we "moon." Unfortunately, it's sometimes a little difficult to discern the bad from the good information and scams are commonplace. Besides buying and holding trading is another sound way to increase your crypto holdings. That being said there is a fair amount of risk for the novice trader, thus the rise of trade signals. The internet is teaming with trade signals at the moment and unfortunately, the preponderance are pretty bad. So here are the top three discord groups where one can find signals that will more often than not turn you a profit.
#3 Insider_Signal - Community Crypto. This is one of the biggest crypto discord groups out there, cranking out signals. By joining this group you will be in good company as the groups boast over 14000 members, which is pretty high for these sorts of groups.
#2 This goes to Cyber Signals. The name says it all, they post signals, that, more often than not, turn a good profit. The only complaint might be that their free signals are a little sparse, rare some might say. But, if one is willing to pay for a premium membership then you should find yourself with a healthy amount of viable trade signals. Apart from solid signals, they also seem to have good support.
You can find them here: https://discordapp.com/channels/399678786830073857/550816802855321611
#1 Finally, the number discord group for crypto trading is, (drumroll,) Cracking Crypto. Why are they number one? Simply put, they have the best stuff on the market; their signals are on point, their support is exemplary and the group itself is composed of enthusiastic and supportive traders of all levels. On top of that, they have a daily stream where they impart a tremendous amount of knowledge along with meaningful market insight. Its as if they give you and fish and teach you to fish all at the same time. They also offer a premium option for those looking to aggressively grow their crypto pile, It's really the best value for what is offered. Last month members of the premium group who acted on all the trade signals would have made a 246% profit.
This is their Discord: http://discord.crackingcryptocurrency.com
This is their website: https://CrackingCryptocurrency.com
This is their youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFb4w6SIGke1YMRoFwsdWCA
I hope this helps. All three are great options for those looking for both trade signals and a community of traders to exchange ideas, strategies and knowledge with.

[uncensored-r/CryptoCurrency] I've made over $500K in crypto. Here are some good resources and advice, especially for the new i...

The following post by arsonbunny is being replicated because the post has been silently removed and some comments within it have been openly removed.
The original post can be found(in censored form) at this link:
np.reddit.com/ CryptoCurrency/comments/7pgh7u
The original post's content was as follows:
Since December 2017 we've seen a massive influx of new investors in the crypto space, and the inflow of their fiat has lead to a massive boom for altcoins. This has inflated values and with many making astronomical fast and easy gains by simply gambling on symbols on an exchange, I am seeing the market reward the very worst type of behavior for investors. More and more in this sub I see people bragging about how they randomly threw money at some shitcoin they didn't even research but just saw shilled here and made 3x on their $500 investment, as if that's something to be encouraged or celebrated. This type of investment style will not last and will only lead you to lose whatever gains you have made recently. I have been holding Bitcoin since 2013, through the Mt.Gox disaster and only sold recently for over $470,000 in profit. I held Ethereum for almost 2 years before I decided to take $32,000 in profits recently. A 5 year investment window may seem like an eternity to the largely young investors that are coming in now, but it really isn't that long. For crypto to be a truly life changing investment for you, you have to get over the "get rich in the next month" mentality that is rampant now and get past the lambo psychosis stage.
First of all here are some good tools that I've found have helped me a lot:
Market News and Tools
  • http://www.coindesk.com - Overview of what's going on in the crypto world
  • http://cryptopanic.com - An aggregator of various crypto sites and news, filterable. I use the pro version to customize the feeds but the free version is good enough for most.
  • http://coinmarketcap.com - Not just for checking prices, they also are the most convenient way to start your research as they have the blockchain explorers, official website links and also a useful API that can be linked to Excel.
  • http://cryptomaps.org - Visualization of price across different segments, primarily hashing functions and ICO release dates
  • http://onchainfx.com - A better version of coin market cap, has all sort of columns and you can add flags. Only downside is it only has 61 cryptos, but its always adding news ones.
  • http://icotracker.net - I like this site for looking at what ICO are coming up
  • http://icobench.com - Another ICO tracker which does nice summaries, shows teams, milestones, financials and gives a rating for each ICO
  • http://solume.io - compares the number of Twitter mention increase decrease to price
  • http://eveningstar.io - this is basically like Morning Star except for cryptos
  • https://bitcoin.tax - for calculating taxes owed on your crypto gains
Communities
  • BitcoinTalk Forums - Probably my favorite place to discuss crypto. Much more intelligent discussion than in this sub.
  • Steemit and Medium have tons of great blogs about crypto, find what alts specifically interest you there.
  • Follow developers on Twitter, Reddit has decent communities for each coin, /biz/ is for pink wojaks, memes and pumping
Portfolio Tracking
  • Delta - get this app, its awesome and better than Blockfolio
There are online sites like AltPocket and CoinTracking that will do portfolio tracking but I haven't found any I would recommend, I prefer to use a CoinMarketCap API Excel tracker which automatically updates prices and consolidates everything. Excel is still the best and most flexible thing to use by far and you can customize it infinitely to your liking.

Basic but Important Advice

In addition I've come up with 10 simple advice points that will take you quite far and will make you much more of an intelligent crypto investor:
1) Don't have more than 5-10% of your entire investment portfolio in crypto, and only invest what you can afford to have locked in for the long term.
We are definitely due for another large correction, so you must be comfortable with losing 80% of your portfolio value in case of a crash and sitting back and letting it slowly recover. Personally I would recommend that once you double your profit, pull out the principal so you are only playing with profits.
2) Don't chase a pump
Never buy on rapid upswing on the candlestick chart if you're not sure why it happened and can't figure it out. The reason is likely that it is a Pnd. PnD is "Pump and dump" and it refers to a trading scam where people organize to coordinate the laddered purchase of an asset, then wait for others to come in at some delay and further increase the price before coordinating the unloading of their position once a specific price target is reached. This is illegal in the stock markets, but since cryptomarkets are unregulated such schemes are rampant. There are many PnD groups and today they are largely organized on Discord channels. They are now structured into tiers where the top tiers get a signal earlier than the bottom tiers and usually by the time the bottom tiers get the signal its too late, so unless you pay money to part of the top tier or have a connection with the admins its not even profitable. They are bad for the market as a whole and they prey on those who are looking for short term moons to latch onto. Don't look for things that you think will moon today, look for investments.
3) Holding will give you more returns over a year than day trading.
You will find that most people who made six figures or more in crypto did it by holding over the long term, very few get rich by day trading. That said you should definitely learn a few indicators to see if you're getting in at a reasonable entry point. I find that the MACD (moving average convergence divergence), RSI (relative strength index), market depth and support-resistance lines are the most useful indicators for crypto. MACD is useful for looking at where the long term price should be in divergence to the short term movement, RSI gives you an 0-1 rating of how overbought/oversold it is and support-resistance lines gives you a floor and ceiling for how high it will move in your buying period. If you do short term trading, do it when you have high certainty that a specific news will lead to an increase. Some of these specific events are: upcoming roadmap item releases, fork airdrops, exchange additions and partnerships. For example, in mid-December it was first announced that the Bitcoin Private fork that is upcoming would release an 1:1 airdrop of BTCP to holders of ZClassic because Bitcoin Private would use the same ZSnarks technology. At this time ZCL was only a few bucks, and thus this news has made ZClassic an attractive short term buy as there would be demand for people to have it purely to get free Bitcoin Private once it launches. Short term buys like this are smart moves based on some underlying value assumption being changed, trading purely on volume and patterns is generally akin to gambling on markets that are as inefficient as most cryptoassets.
4) Take your time and research what you are putting your money into.
I cannot stress this enough, you are buying an asset with your hard earned money, and it should have some utility. Start by reading the whitepaper that is on the main site for the coin. You can avoid a lot of scams by simply critically evaluating the question: "Why does this coin exist?" Is it simply trying to apply a blockchain to something that doesn't need it or is there a transactional inefficiency/problem that the unique properties of the blockchain can solve? For example, the blockchain is immutable so the use case of tracking designer luxury goods across a supply chain and guaranteeing authenticity of a item makes sense. On the other hand trying to push the blockchain transactions into dentistry makes little sense. Designer good companies have a problem with conterfeit goods entering the supply chain and need some solution, dentists don't have a problem with charging people on their VISA for fixing cavities. Ask yourself what value the actual token would have in the ecosystem its part of. Does it pay out some kind of dividend like some coins, or is its value in that its used as part of transaction fees and is thus being burned? You can make a simple checklist for every crypto and just answer these questions to yourself for each coin you look at:
  • What is the problem or transactional inefficiency the coin is trying to solve?
  • What is the Dev Team like? What is their track record? How are they funded, organized?
  • Who is their competition and how big is the market they're targeting? What is the roadmap they created?
  • How will they attract their target market, how is their marketing?
  • How does the coin derive its value? Is there some sort of dividend structure, profit sharing plan, or is it a store of value within a digital economy? What is the float schedule like going forward (ie. how many coins will be released or burned)?
5) Learn to recognize FOMO when it arises within you
If you ever feel this itch to get in on an rapid upswing because you don't want to miss out on some new development that is causing it, stop yourself from knee jerk reacting to this feeling. This is called FOMO: "Fear of missing out" and its what drives the market now. It happens to everyone and it leads to emotional investing and knee jerk buying/selling.
6) Recognize that lots of people actually are also losing money.
