How to remove Ethereum pending transaction

Until recently, we thought the Ethereum network was fail-safe as a AK-47 assault rifle. But a few days ago, the machine got stuck. What is the problem? If you send a transaction to the network with a gas price insufficient to make a transaction or execute the code, your transaction will hang out in the status of pending for some long indefinite time. And if your business process depends on this account, then your business can completely stop. What actually happened to us — we wanted to transfer the received investments to our team of traders, but one of the accounts had a transaction on the status of pending for almost a day. We could not sign the withdrawal of funds from multisig purse. By the way, multisig 3of3 is a very bad idea.

fail-safe as a AK-47 assault rifle

We have sent a transaction to the network for Approve withdrawal of funds from the multisig wallet, accidentally a minimum cost per gas of 1 gwei was set. The transaction was sent into the network and hung in the status of Pending. All subsequent transactions for it also hung in the status of pending, regardless of whether the price of gas was set at 21 or even 41 gwei.

In attempts to somehow influence the situation — you generate more new transactions. Such transactions can accumulate 20 or even 100 until the very first problem transaction with the price for gas in 1 Gwei is processed — you will not be able to do anything. Given that the last week the network was overloaded a little more than always:

an unpleasant picture emerges … How much to wait is unknown, you can’t just to call to miners and beg them “please include my transaction in the next block”.

Moreover, if your account is also the Owner of some smartcontract then no action to configure the smartcontract you also can’t do.

But the solution was found!

You need to send a new transaction to the network, indicating that it has the same nonce as the transaction, which caused a congestion. Set the price of gas above, for example 20 Gwei. The transaction may send nothing — that is, you can send 0 Eth.

To do this you need: on the site https://etherscan.io find your “problem” transaction and copy the nonce.

Go to https://www.myetherwallet.com, then go to the Send Offline tab:

Enter your address in the From Address field, any address in the To Address field, Value / Amount to Send, leave 0, Gas price set at 20 gwei — 20000000000 (9 zeros after 20):

Then specify the nonce that you learned on the etherscan, select Keystore File (UTC / JSON), select the file keystore of your account, enter the password and unlock your account with the Unlock button. There will have to wait a little — there is a process of unlocking the account.

Then click on Generate Transaction, and then send the transaction by clicking the Send Transaction button.

That’s all! Let’s look on Ethetscan. Your transactions began to walk.

P.S. If you have sent several transactions with cheap gas to the network, you must repeat it for each of them.

Billionaire Hedge Fund Legend Novogratz: Bitcoin Price En Route to $25,000

Mike Novogratz, the hedge fund legend and former executive at Fortress, have stated in an interview with CNBC that the Bitcoin price is heading towards $25,000.

Feds Miss Out Half a Billion Dollars from Silk Road Bitcoin Auction

On September 29, the acting Manhattan US Attorney announced that Ross Ulbricht forfeited the $48 million proceeds from the sale of bitcoin seized from the computers and devices of the Silk Road operator.

While the auction of 144,336 bitcoin (worth $608.5 million at the time of writing) was conducted in 2014, the US Justice Department were not able to seize the funds from the auction due to the challenge Ulbricht had made on the legality of the forfeiture. But, last week, Ulbricht dropped the claim against the government, allowing the US Justice Department to process the forfeiture and the funds gathered from the sale of the ‘Silk Road bitcoin.’

The stipulation and order document filed on September 29 read:

“It is hereby stipulated and agreed, by and between the United States of America, through its attorney Joon. H. Kim, United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Christine I. Magdo, Assistant United States Attorney, of counsel, and Ross William Ulbricht, by and through his counsel, Paul Grant, Esq., that Ulbricht hereby withdraws his Verified Claim to the defendant in rem Bitcoins filed on December 12, 2013, and the Verified Claim is hereby dismissed with prejudice. All right, title and interest in the Defendant Funds are hereby forfeited to the United States, and shall be disposed of according to law.”

For the US government, the decision to essentially pre-sell seized bitcoin funds from the Silk Road case in 2014 has been poor, as the price of bitcoin has increased by over 13-fold in the past three years. If the US government had sold bitcoin from the Silk Road case in 2017, after Ulbricht dropped his claim, it would have obtained an additional $500 million (or thereabouts) on top of the $48 million it had secured from the initial auction.

One of the investors that purchased a batch of 30,000 BTC from the US Department of Justice auction was billionaire technology investor and venture capitalist Tim Draper. In March, during an interview with Fox Business, Draper revealed that he had invested $19 million in bitcoin, including his purchase of 30,000 bitcoins from the US government. At the time, he told Fox:

“[I’m] very excited about bitcoin and what it can do for the world. Bitcoin is as big a transformation to the finance and commerce industry as the internet was for information and communications. If bitcoin were here in 2008, it would be a stability source for our world economy. Everybody should go out there and buy a bitcoin.”

Since then, Draper has continued to operate as a key investor within the bitcoin and cryptocurrency sector, funding regional bitcoin startups and exchanges. In 2014, Draper was one of the few investors that provided necessary capital and resources to South Korean bitcoin exchanges Korbit and Coinplug, leading a $3 million Series A funding round for Korbit with Softbank and Pantera Capital. In September 2017, Korbit was acquired by Nexon at a valuation of $150 million.

NXC, the parent company of the $10 billion gaming company Nexon, announced:

“NXC has been reviewing and investing in startups with digital idea and technology and this investment was made with our positive view on the growth cryptocurrency industry.”

IMMLA - Aplikasi Logistik Multimodal Dengan Teknologi Blockchain & Investasi Jangka Panjang Yang Menguntungkan

http://www.immla.io/

Selamat bertemu kembali sahabat Crypto…..

Kali ini saya akan membahas tentang Aplikasi Layanan Kargo berbasis Blockchain pertama di dunia yang bernama IMMLA. Baik mari kita mulai dan kita bahas bersama-sama……

Pengantar

Perusahaan Logistik adalah sebuah layanan yang menyediakan jasa transportasi pengiriman barang dari tempat pengambilan barang atau kantor pengiriman barang ke tempat tujuan, dan juga perusahaan logistik menyediakan jasa penyewaan gudang bagi perusahaan-perusahaan lain untuk menyimpang barangnya.

Zaman sudah modern, maka semua peralatan yang kita gunakan pun akan mengikuti perkembangan. Sampai dengan saat ini semua alat yang kita gunakan sudah berbasis teknologi canggih. Setiap kegiatan yang kita lakukan tentu membutuhkan suatu alat yang merupakan suatu benda yang dapat membantu segala bentuk aktifitas. Salah satu contoh aktifitas yang kita bisa ambil adalah aktifitas bisnis. Dalam dunia bisnis kita tentu membutuhkan suatu alat atau aplikasi yang kita gunakan untuk menjalankannya

Namun pada saat ini meskipun dunia teknologi telah berkembang pesat kita masih banyak menemui kendala tentunya terutama dalam dunia bisnis logistik. Beberapa masalah yang sering kita temukan adalah kesalahan dalam pengiriman barang atau kesalahan dalam penerimaan dan barang yang tidak diketahui sudah berjalan sampai mana walaupun melalui sistem pelacakan website. Hal ini yang tentunya membuat dunia bisnis logistik bermasalah. Masalah lain yang muncul adalah tidak adanya perusahaan kargo yang nyata artinya bahwa setiap perusahaan tersebut hanya saling melengkapi dimana perusahaan yang satu akan menitip barang ke perusahaan yang lain. Hal ini dikarenakan untuk menghemat biaya operasional dan menghasilkan keuntungan yang tinggi.

Dari beberapa masalah yang timbul diatas maka sekelompok orang yang memiliki kemampuan yang tinggi dalam dunia logistik dan IT mencoba menganalisa dan memberikan solusi atas permasalahan tersebut. Dalam memberikan solusi atas beberapa masalah tersebut maka diciptakan suatu aplikasi yang bernama IMMLA. Pada platform ini semua masalah yang muncul pada perusahaan kargo tersebut akan di minimalisir serendah mungkin.

The Newest Disruption in the Energy Sector: Crowd-funding of Solar Farms & Other Assets

After recently announcing Power Ledger’s partnership with Origin Energy, there has been a new influx of inquires and media about peer-to-peer energy trading across the network. As exciting as it is for Power Ledger, to be growing our Peer-to-Peer Application with several projects being announced this month alone, its important to highlight the other Applications supported by the Power Ledger Platform.

The one the Power Ledger Team are most excited about, is Asset Germination Events. An energy expert stated on Medium:

‘I looked it up and still have no idea what an Asset Germination Event could be, Google neither.’

Google, or anywhere else won’t be of much assistance, we at Power Ledger have created and championed this business model.

In our white paper, they are defined as ‘the sale or crowdfunding of an autonomous renewable energy asset which allocates ownership and distribution of income’. In simple language, they are events whereby POWR token holders can purchase a fraction of ownership of a renewable energy asset, be allocated its revenue accordingly to its share of the asset, and even trade their ownership with other POWR holders.

Therefore, Asset Germination Events are like mini-ICOs within the Power Ledger Ecosystem. Power Ledger will use a portion of its funds raised in its Token Generation Event towards buying renewable energy assets, like large-scale batteries and PV generation systems, to connect and bring into the Power Ledger Ecosystem.

As these assets generate and sell their power, the proceeds from their generation will be distributed to the beneficiaries of the asset. Through our Asset Germination Events, we will be assigning beneficiaries to the asset and in turn they will receive the benefit of its generation.

We envisage that these events will become hugely popular and the only way of participating in them will be through the Power Ledger Platform.

The POWR tokens submitted will not necessarily be used to pay for the Asset’s Germinations. The legal structure of the Asset beneficiaries will be determined according to the legal advice we receive in each jurisdiction and set up accordingly to be fully compliant.

Having said that, there may be token-friendly countries where participants are able to purchase the Assets directly using their POWR tokens, and in turn, trade them with other participants and Application Hosts through the Power Ledger Platform. This means a healthy and vibrant marketplace for fractions of asset ownership and creates additional demand for POWR tokens as more assets are added to the platform.

Power Ledger aims to deploy this application in 2018. Stay updated on our progress by subscribing to our newsletter.


The Newest Disruption in the Energy Sector: Crowd-funding of Solar Farms & Other Assets was originally published in Power Ledger on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Cryptocurrencies vs. States

When the seeds of the digital economy were spread out, the dotcom balloon was still inflating. In the 1990s, eCash and the first cryptocurrency were brought into service for community. Soon after, eGold was born. They successfully overcame the Dotcom crisis and continued to grow. By the year 2008, they had reached an annual transaction volume of $ 2 billion. But, despite the fact that they had grown so much, they couldn’t get rid of the 2008 global economic crisis and they bankrupted. As it has been throughout history, the foundation of a higher system was thrown after the destruction. Satoshi Nakomoto, who is still unknown if he is a real person or organization, has invented the Bitcoin, which is based on blockchain technology that affects the world. The article he published drew great attention, especially with the technology behind it. Bitcoin was accepted in the underground world at first, due to it’s difficult to trace characteristics and security infrastructure. Today, it is moving into a position that directly affects the global economy. After 27 years passed over the first cryptocurrency experiment in the 1990s, now we encounter the births and deaths of cryptocurrencies every day.

As we mentioned in our previous article, cryptocurrencies are even on the agenda of states nowadays.

In this respect, we have said that the coin market is now in an irrefutable position. However, the main actors of the market have different approaches for this situation. John McAfee, a pioneer in anti-virus software, said in a statement to South China Morning Post, “Today will go down in history as the war of the proponents of cryptocurrency and the world governments”. At the point where we have come since the first coin, there will be no surprise if it turns into a war between the elites of the technology and the state system. Likewise, it is impossible for the states to completely liberate an economy that develops outside of their own control. The most significant outcome of this current situation is that states are not apparently capable to destroy the cryptocurrencies market. Based on this, it would not be wrong to say that cryptocurrencies won the first round of conflict.

On the other hand, traditional bankers believe that the source of the cryptocurrency market — which is strengthening day by day- is legal and illegal international money transfers. These kinds of assertions are based on the cryptocurrencies’ technological infrastructure and the ability to transfer money without fees. The fact that 23 percent of investments in Silicon Valley was made by cryptocurrencies this year and dozens of ICOs were announced each day refutes the claims.

Meanwhile, there are generally four different human profiles in the cryptocurrency market on which war rhetorics and traditional approaches always go on. Even if there is no clear distinction, it is possible to interpret the investment movements of the people accordingly to these profiles:

  1. Revolutionaries
    More idealistic people like McAfee can resist without fear even in the most troubled moments. For instance, people on Reddit encouraged the community to resist the state system, despite the great decline in the past weeks.
  2. Gold Rushers
    This situation is reminiscent of the old “Gold Rush” phenomenon in the United States.There are always amateurs who rush to be rich with a dream. They can become professionals unless they lose all their assets with time.
  3. Gamblers
    Rich people who think the stock market is boring, find the very risky coin market sexy and amusing. This market looks like the gladiatorial wars of the modern times when the coin birth and death rates are considered.
  4. Bagmen
    Cryptocurrencies are the most advantageous way for wealthy people to get their money transferred abroad. Because they are not asked for any fees and their assets cannot be tracked.

While the market is getting stronger, everyone is trying to get the most suitable position. Some sharpening their sword with revolutionary screams, some seeking to collect booty, some just getting fun and some use it only as a new tool. Although it is unclear how the transition from a state-controlled economy to a fully liberalized economy will affect the societies, there will be a big change for sure. Well, which side do you stand for?

We combine the best payment protection features of the current generation fiat system with innovative features from blockchain and blend unique features provided by our own token. We know now the development of the digital age increasingly trend since the existence of payment transactions via via online, but each payment has a security system to prevent theft by irresponsible person. For that UTRUST is the best solution for your future to conduct online payment transactions.

The payment system that Utrust will develop will buy from Utrust platform. will continue to develop a completely secure system, not just for buyers but also for sellers. We believe that one of crypto important roles in the digital age is to facilitate transactions and act as a friction and secure payment method with wide acceptance We believe the payment platform is currently lacking the features necessary to drive merchants and widespread user adoption; The digital token is more than an asset for financial speculation and the ICO tokens use funds to fund agile teams with the drive to build new platforms; Platforms with real value, driven by growth in goods and services transactions, and Financials sustained by revenue from reasonable costs .

PROBLEM

Despite the disruption and technological advances in blockchain, one area that remains largely untapped is digital payments between buyers and physical sellers of services. This has been a sign of a bigger industry defender, with more legacy APIs and agreements with traditional financial institutions, banks and credit cards. Despite the benefits of crypto payments (ultra low cost, low speed and low barrier of entry), buyers enjoy and have come to expect strong consumer protection. Systems that protect their purchases and provide refunds. Seller on the other side wants to earn more income but be wary of the volatility issue of receiving cryptocurrencies will not it be amazing if we can have the best of both worlds? This is the dilemma of mutual trust we want to accomplish with the UTRUST platform.

SOLUTION

Our goal is to build next generation payment gateways that allow buyers to their favorite key crypto users to buy goods and services with merchant confidence, incorporating protection and dispute like a tough PayPal.
The resolution scheme We aim to encourage API adoption by traders by giving them a way to receive directly in fiat currency from the buyer’s crypto currency, protecting traders from market volatility and reducing the risk of receiving crypto-currency.

Payment Mechanism: Buyer Pays with major cryptourrency, with low conversion cost, or with UTRUST Token with zero conversion cost . Convert to fiat funds immediately converted into fiat currency to protect sellers from market volatility. Dynamic Holding UTRUST holds the funds and releases them to the seller, adjusted for a performance-based period. Seller Receive in fiat currency and can withdraw into bank account, store it in wallet or convert it into other cryptocurrency. What are the Benefits of UTRUST? For Buyer — Minimizes fraud and cheating risks by providing full payment protection and acting as a third party mediator. We protect your purchase from the time you pay until delivery! For Sellers — As a seller, you benefit from low cost and real time transactions. Say goodbye to bad chargebacks, credit card cheats and hacked account payments. With UTRUST you can receive multiple emergency kriptifications at once and all payments received will be converted to fiat currency to protect you from market price fluctuations.

ROADMAP

UTRUST TOKEN

You can use the UTRUST token on the platform, spend it on merchants that support UTRUST transactions or private buyers / sellers, you can sell coins on the exchange, privately or just for future use. The main difference from all other tokens is to have a business model behind it. A payment system that allows you to use coins and spend it independently and a system that grows in synergy with coins. In addition, using the UTRUST token on the payment platform will provide additional benefits to further stimulate its growth.

Daily Crypto Update — Are We in a Correction? (10th Sep ‘17)

Market Performance (Global Market Cap):

  • 24-hour gains: -13.6%
  • September gains: -18.2%
  • Year to date gains: +701.1%

Portfolio Performance:

  • 24-hour gains: -10.4%
  • September gains: -14.3%
  • Year to date gains: +1,302.1%

Apologies for the lack of updates over the last couple of days, I have been traveling back from The States and settling back home. Also, the volume of content I have been producing is not sustainable, so I am looking at changing things a little.

September continues to be a red month with the market dipping again over the last few days. I am though comfortable that my portfolio is in good shape compared to how it has performed against the market. What I am trying to figure out is, are we in a dip, a correction or are we at the start of a bear market?

So we are not in a dip, a dip is a temporary drop in either the market or a coin which usually recovers quickly. A correction is where the market or a coin has moved in one direction too quickly, and the market reacts to settle back to a more comfortable price range. A bear market is where market sentiment is pessimistic and driving widespread selling over a lengthy period.

Within the stock market, a drop of around 20% over two months is considered bear market territory, but Crypto isn’t traditional. We are +21% down from the height of September 1st where the GMC was at $179bn; if this were the stock market this would likely cause a panic across global markets, and a possible global recession.

The way in which the Crypto market can tolerate huge % drops reflects the unique nature of the market but also its infancy. The speed at which prices can change highlights how volatile such a speculative market can be and why it is so hard to predict what will happen next.

My gut feeling is we have a nervous market, while investors have enjoyed spectacular gains this year, they are also nervous that any significant drop can hit their portfolios quite hard. This is compounded by the fact that the market is littered with whales and amateur investors:

  • Whales can react to market conditions with huge sells which move market prices significantly
  • Amateur investors panic and sell when the market moves against them

The $5k Bitcoin triggered the first selloff, but like any price target which triggers profit taking it should have recovered pretty quickly. The banning of ICOs by China triggered the second selloff and just as the market looked to recover, the confusing news about whether China is banning the trade in Crypto triggered another selloff:

It now remains to be seen where the market will go. The GMC appears to be defending the $140bn marker quite well, twice rebounding off $137bn. Where an individual coin finds support and resistance at certain price levels, it may appear wrong to talk about a market defending global positions, and I am not aware that there are investors who watch this and price their buying and selling against it. My feeling is that when the market is booming or crashing the whole market tends to operate in a particular and predictable pattern and as such, there tends to be an unintentional aggregate support.

The correction of June/July saw the market drop by +47%, and we could see the same now, or even worse if we enter bear market territory. This said I don’t feel we have any reason for this to be more than a correction.

I was better prepared this time than June/July as I had more money off the table, though it should have been higher, another lesson for the future. My play now is to watch the market this next week and see what happens, if we can survive the week without any negative market news and the prices do not recover then we are definitely in correction territory. I won’t be doing any selling though; I don’t ever like to sell in a correction because it is always hard to predict when a correction ends. I would much rather be selling when the market is going up, like my sale of Dash, Komodo, and Syscoin last week, which all looked like good decisions.

If the market does start to move up again then there are some good buying opportunities out there, specifically I am looking at the following:

  • NEO: down 58% from its high of $51. I can’t see this dropping much further; it seems to have good support at $20.
  • Komodo: down 41% from its high from the anticipation of their announcement. White the presentation was terrible, I thought the announcement was good news and was surprised the price tanked so hard. A decentralised ICO platform is a cool thing, even if so many ICOs are garbage.
  • Blocknet: down 47% from its high of $35.42, the price is still in range and when the market recovers this could prove a good buy.
  • Litecoin: down 31.6% from its high of just over $90. This is an about turn for me here, the more I use Litecoin, the more I like it and the more it highlights what better shape it is in as a usable currency than Bitcoin.

Timing my investment in these is tricky because if the market drops further these could be expensive buys but if the market recovers then these could be some great investments.

We will just need to see how the market reacts next week.

Any questions, then please do give me a shout.

Overview of Activities for August ‘17

We have had an extremely busy August. Here are some of the highlights:

Roadshow:

The Ambrosus team ran a pre-sale roadshow with Monaco Growth Forums and David Drake from LDJ Capital in which high-net worth individuals, family offices, institutions and private banks attended invitation only events to learn more about Ambrosus. Over 1,000 selected participants attended meetings of our European, Asian and Middle Eastern Roadshow, which included stops in London, Paris, Monaco, Luxembourg, Geneva, Zurich, Lugano, Milan, Vienna, Berlin, Stockholm, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Seoul, Hong Kong and Singapore. Future public events with Ambrosus team members or advisors include Monaco, Zurich, Barcelona and Bali. Our presale commitments have reached over USD 40 million, making Ambrosus one of the most successful presales ever.

MassChallenge:

The Ambrosus Operations team in Lausanne has successfully completed its participation in MassChallenge, where they got an opportunity to start engaging large corporate players in the industry including Nestlé, Barry Callbaut, Migros, Givaudan and Bühler. We are planning to announce further pilot projects and partnerships in Q4 2017. Ambrosus has in the meantime released reports on use cases for Halal Food, Pharmaceuticals and Edible Consumer products.

Ongoing Security Audits:

We have published a detailed update on security on our technical blog. We are integrating a novel method of doing real-time Know Your Customer (KYC) for our ICO process, which will permit our token generating event to stay both safe and compliant with the law. Our goal is to assure the legitimacy of all aspects of our project including compliance with regulations and to prevent participation of excluded persons. We will be updating the community on the ICO procedure shortly. All our infrastructure has been significantly overhauled and the essential elements are being audited with increased scrutiny. Our ICO contract and KYC app are being prepared in close collaboration with Parity Technologies to assure the highest quality of the code. The results of the security audits will also be posted shortly to assure participants of the highest standards of security

Human Resources:

We are actively hiring engineers, developers and project managers for different programmes within Ambrosus in Zug and Lausanne, Switzerland. We are planning to build a lab on tagging physical objects and are setting up a research program on tags, sensors and tracers. We will be posting more vacancies on our upcoming corporate webpage. Currently enquiries can be sent via careers@ambrosus.com

Don’t Buy the Dip, Buy the Correction

I wrote before about the stupid things Crypto traders say and why you should ignore them. One of these things which always comes up is ‘Buy the Dip”.

Nothing moves up in a straight line and therefore with a growing asset, buy the dip is a term used when a price drops to advise investors to buy more because, you know, it will keep going up forever.

I used the chart below for Ripple to demonstrate why this is bullshit. When Ripple went on its mega run earlier in the year Reddit and Twitter went crazy, “Ripple is going to replace Swift,” “Ripple is going to change the banking industry,” “Ripple is going to the moon,” blah blah blah.

Like any coin which flies up too quick, guess what? It dropped. Guess what? All those amateur experts on Reddit were posting “Buy the Dip,” here is one example:

God Praise the Dip
“For those freaking out about the dip don’t worry, xrp is going to crash it’s just its weakly trend. Buy yourself some more “xrp and reap your rewards on Tuesday.
Side note: The reason I don’t fear putting 10k in ripple when it’s as low as it currently is because I know and believe that xrp will bounce back up.”

The above was posted on July 8th around the Holy Crap moment and just before the What The Actual Fuck time. Now I am not saying Ripple will never go back up, but buy the dip implies that the dip is temporary, it could be, but it isn’t certain as there are so many different factors at play. I counted 20 significant dips before it hit bottom. That is 20 times you can buy the dip and create 20 new losing positions.

And what about this fucking genius:

Now is a good opportunity to buy, for those unsure
If anything the last week has shown us, is that it’ll dip sure, but it goes right back up. I firmly believe this .37ish is a low point, and we’ll be back up in the .40s in no time, and then toward .50+

And then read the comments:

  • “Just doubled down and bought more at .34. Hoping to see .50 by the end of June’”
  • “Buy buy buy”
  • “Dip and Buy”

The post was made on May 18th, now let’s plot this on the chart.

If you want to trade on stock, forex or CFD platforms, there are checks in place to ensure you know what you are doing and you understand that risks when trading. With gambling websites, they have controls to ensure when you are losing money fast that you can’t bet anymore. Crypto doesn’t have this; new investors can enter the market, sold on the dream of getting rich and invest into things they don’t understand.

There is a blind belief that each Crypto asset on a bull run will just go up and up because other assets have. Leading currencies such as Bitcoin, Dash, Monero, and Litecoin keep setting new all time highs, but this won’t happen forever. Bitcoin kicked off a two-year bear run in 2013 and Litecoin’s was even longer. All coins will at some point experience dips, corrections, and a damn long extended bear run.

Markets do this. It may be in a week, a month, a year or much longer. Crypto doesn’t like to move sideways; it likes to go like a rollercoaster, flying up and down with the occasional breather.

Do not blindly buy the dip. Buy the correction. And this is quite easy to spot, look at the new chart below for Ripple, you can draw a simple line across the spikes during the downtrend and see on August 21st where it broke. Here new prices were tested and then Ripple settled into a new price range, the good old boring zone.

If you believe in Ripple, then this is where to buy, in the correction, in the boring zone, where there are no more sellers, and it is ready for another price wave. When will that happen? Who knows, avoiding a market doesn’t crash, history tells us it will. You just have to be patient and either wait for news or some whale buying action.

A Market Correction is the Biggest Buy

Taking money off the table is part of my strategy, and I like doing it for a few reasons:

  • It feels good to know you have made some tangible profits
  • You can go and treat yourself to something nice
  • Strategically I am then also ready for a market correction

I do my best not to think ‘what if’ when I take money off the table, and things move further up. I talked before about when I sold off 2/3 of my NEO before it hit the top and missed out on a chunk of profit. It doesn’t matter; it is a trade, it was profitable, all is good. There is no point having your portfolio track what could have been because each trade is measured on its own merits and human psychology will naturally allow for selective memory.

When we had the big correction of June/July, through greed, I bought the dip with Dash. I put all of my ‘money off the table’ back in; then the market dropped more. I paid around 20% higher for Dash than I should of. It proved a profitable trade in the long run, but I could have traded it so much better.

When the market fully corrected, I didn’t have any cash left off the table to take advantage of some of the spectacular altcoin moves. When the market had recovered my portfolio was down on where it was when the correction started. The market outperformed me because of deviating from strategy and greed.

I am not going to make this mistake again. A correction is coming, and I am going to be ready. I wrote yesterday about why I think we are in a bubble and pulled together a little video. Loads of people are Tweeting that it isn’t a bubble, below is one example that keeps getting bandied around. As I Tweeted back “A bubble isn’t defined by market cap, it’s defined by behaviour, psychology, and percentages.”

A market can’t sustain accelerated price rises. Eventually, you run out of buyers and then human fear kicks in and the market traces back.

Let’s do the math. Over the last 12 months, Crypto has jumped from $12.1bn to $164.4bn; this is a growth of 1,258.7%. If Crypto is to grow at the same rate over the next year then our market cap will be $2.1tr, is this possible? Sure, the market cap of gold is around $7tr alone.

Do we expect similar growth? $26tn, is it possible, sure? It is possible for me to beat Usain Bolt over 100m but it’s never going fucking happen, especially if some of these Cryptocurrencies don’t start demonstrating utility.

We are in a bull run, a lucky year, but the growth will end at some point, and at that point, it is unlikely that it will move sideways, again, especially without utility. As we are all in this to make money, guess what people will start doing? They will start selling to realise their fiat profits and if this triggers a correction, then you watch how fast this unfolds.

Nobody knows what the fuck will happen, not me, not you, not anyone, but markets do not move up in a straight line and Crypto is the most volatile market there is.

When the correction comes, smart strategic investors will make money; greedy amateur investors will get burned hard.

Any questions then, please give me a shout.

ICO Alert Report: Trackr

All of our market intelligence reports, known as ICO Alert Reports, will be published here, on our blog, to allow you to read on any device and join the discussion in the comments.

What is Trackr?

Trackr exists as a crypto analysis and intelligence platform to assist newcomers and seasoned traders with making the right choices when it comes to crypto investments. New altcoins appear every day and there is extreme market volatility in the cryptocurrency scene, all of this means that it can be very difficult to keep track of the right investment.
Imagine if you could know in advance that a coin at $0.005 may shoot up to $1. Trackr’s main objective is to look for certain patterns based on a number of criteria such as media exposure, historical trends, exchange trade volumes and prices, and sudden volatile market trends (i.e. huge buy walls). Of course all of this isn’t enough, so we also plan on using machine learning and AI to help us train data models to forecast certain scenarios and suggest appropriate investment strategies.
Our ultimate goal is to make investment easy for beginners or seasoned traders and allow them to test certain trading strategies to ensure viability before having to risk any crypto assets.”

Q&A

ICO Alert: How does the Trackr token (TKR) function within the platform and why is it needed?

Waleed Amjad, Co-Founder of Trackr: The primary reason the TKR token is required is to eliminate the requirement of a third-party. For example, users wanting to trade (see below for what is meant by trading) wouldn’t need to depend on a risky middle man and could safely use our publicly auditable smart contracts without having to rely on mutual trust.
Furthermore, the TKR token will also be used for the following:
a) To fuel advanced features/services on the Trackr platform through a subscription model
b) Trading on the platform. By trading we refer to sharing of portfolio’s, prediction models, alerts and such with other users
c) Crypto related advertising on the platform, the advertisement itself will be subtle and non-intrusive and only shown to non-subscribers

ICO Alert: How is Trackr different than other cryptocurrency asset management applications currently available? What does the Trackr team plan to implement in the future?

Trackr: The Trackr offering is different from tools such as Coindash, Blockfolio, other portfolio management applications since it does a lot more than just visualizing your assets in the form of some graphs/data tables. Trackr will be a fully-fledged crypto analysis suite, and just to name one difference: Trackr will enable the user to do strategy backtesting, that is to say they can run a set of tests to determine their future growth to refine their investment strategy.
Another important distinction is that Trackr does not save any of its user data on its servers, nor does it transmit any user data, all data is stored locally on the user’s client device.
One of the future roadmap plans is to create a cross-platform desktop client, similar to the official Mist or Ethereum Wallet. This client would be similar to the mobile app, however it would be more rich in features.

ICO Alert: Has development started on the Trackr application? When will an application be ready for users to download and use?

Trackr: Yes, Trackr has an alpha version available, users are free to test it out. It is available for both Android and iOS and is available via the website.

ICO Alert: How does Trackr plan to use machine-learning/AI?

Trackr: Trackr will use historical data models for the majority of the cryptocurrencies and apply machine learning techniques to obtain prediction models by picking up patterns in existing data. These patterns could then potentially be used to develop a mathematical model that can be applied to that cryptocurrency.
Using this model we will generate an investment strategy that is put through a series of tests until we’re at a comfortable level of prediction accuracy. The strategy is then made available to users.

ICO Alert: Trackr aims to project future growth for users and popularity for coins. How does Trackr plan to do this accurately?

Trackr: We would be lying if we said that we can do this with pinpoint accuracy, cryptocurrencies are by nature very, very, volatile. Having said that, we’ve identified some basic patterns that generally signal a price swing in either direction. These can often be correlated to unusual trade orders, building up of hype (pump) before dumping coins, media exposure (think sentiment analysis) or perhaps something as simple as a coin going on an exchange. There are a lot of reasons why a certain coin can grow or sink. We will implement certain strategies that are known to work on a per-coin basis, taking historical data into account. In the end, we hope to be able to predict how a coin is going to grow to a certain extent.
Trackr will give users a more accurate representation based on the current information and facts known to us about a coin, taking AI and simulations predictions into account, which should let them make an informed decision. But in the end, responsibility always lies with the user to do their due diligence before executing a trade.

ICO Alert: As a non-Trackr question, we like to ask the team for any fun or unique predictions for the ICO and cryptocurrency space. Where do you see each space in 5 years?

Trackr: The cryptocurrency scene has literally exploded in the last few months, never mind years, so it is impossible to predict where it will go. The underlying fundamentals of blockchain and its theory really intrigue us and we are super excited about the paradigm shift that is currently taking place, if you take a deeper look at what is going on, you will notice that what is really happening is that power is shifting away from the single entity (think monarchy, government entity, central bank, etc.) to a network of P2P nodes. We envisage that you will be able to buy services such as mortgages, loans, real-estate, even energy (gas/electricity) through a blockchain powered process.
We believe the ICO space will get regulated in the near future as regulatory bodies will attempt to clamp down. It remains to see how the community will respond to that and how that will affect cryptocurrency scene, but one thing is for sure, we are living in a very exciting time to be able to see this paradigm shift taking place right in front of our eyes.

Is there an ICO that you’d like to see covered in an ICO Alert Report? Tweet us and let us know.

Furthermore, the TKR token will also be used for the following:
a) To fuel advanced features/services on the Trackr platform through a subscription model
b) Trading on the platform. By trading we refer to sharing of portfolio’s, prediction models, alerts and such with other users
c) Crypto related advertising on the platform, the advertisement itself will be subtle and non-intrusive and only shown to non-subscribers

ICO Alert: How is Trackr different than other cryptocurrency asset management applications currently available? What does the Trackr team plan to implement in the future?

Trackr: The Trackr offering is different from tools such as Coindash, Blockfolio, other portfolio management applications since it does a lot more than just visualizing your assets in the form of some graphs/data tables. Trackr will be a fully-fledged crypto analysis suite, and just to name one difference: Trackr will enable the user to do strategy backtesting, that is to say they can run a set of tests to determine their future growth to refine their investment strategy.
Another important distinction is that Trackr does not save any of its user data on its servers, nor does it transmit any user data, all data is stored locally on the user’s client device.
One of the future roadmap plans is to create a cross-platform desktop client, similar to the official Mist or Ethereum Wallet. This client would be similar to the mobile app, however it would be more rich in features.

ICO Alert: Has development started on the Trackr application? When will an application be ready for users to download and use?

Trackr: Yes, Trackr has an alpha version available, users are free to test it out. It is available for both Android and iOS and is available via the website.

ICO Alert: How does Trackr plan to use machine-learning/AI?

Trackr: Trackr will use historical data models for the majority of the cryptocurrencies and apply machine learning techniques to obtain prediction models by picking up patterns in existing data. These patterns could then potentially be used to develop a mathematical model that can be applied to that cryptocurrency.
Using this model we will generate an investment strategy that is put through a series of tests until we’re at a comfortable level of prediction accuracy. The strategy is then made available to users.

ICO Alert: Trackr aims to project future growth for users and popularity for coins. How does Trackr plan to do this accurately?

Trackr: We would be lying if we said that we can do this with pinpoint accuracy, cryptocurrencies are by nature very, very, volatile. Having said that, we’ve identified some basic patterns that generally signal a price swing in either direction. These can often be correlated to unusual trade orders, building up of hype (pump) before dumping coins, media exposure (think sentiment analysis) or perhaps something as simple as a coin going on an exchange. There are a lot of reasons why a certain coin can grow or sink. We will implement certain strategies that are known to work on a per-coin basis, taking historical data into account. In the end, we hope to be able to predict how a coin is going to grow to a certain extent.
Trackr will give users a more accurate representation based on the current information and facts known to us about a coin, taking AI and simulations predictions into account, which should let them make an informed decision. But in the end, responsibility always lies with the user to do their due diligence before executing a trade.

ICO Alert: As a non-Trackr question, we like to ask the team for any fun or unique predictions for the ICO and cryptocurrency space. Where do you see each space in 5 years?

Trackr: The cryptocurrency scene has literally exploded in the last few months, never mind years, so it is impossible to predict where it will go. The underlying fundamentals of blockchain and its theory really intrigue us and we are super excited about the paradigm shift that is currently taking place, if you take a deeper look at what is going on, you will notice that what is really happening is that power is shifting away from the single entity (think monarchy, government entity, central bank, etc.) to a network of P2P nodes. We envisage that you will be able to buy services such as mortgages, loans, real-estate, even energy (gas/electricity) through a blockchain powered process.
We believe the ICO space will get regulated in the near future as regulatory bodies will attempt to clamp down. It remains to see how the community will respond to that and how that will affect cryptocurrency scene, but one thing is for sure, we are living in a very exciting time to be able to see this paradigm shift taking place right in front of our eyes.

Is there an ICO that you’d like to see covered in an ICO Alert Report? Tweet us and let us know.

Bit of a Coin and The Naked King

Bit of a Coin and The Naked King

There was a Child also,Truthful, Straight-forward and Fearless;He shouted — The King is naked.

Yes, you know this story,But, in that crowd of men of king,There were not only all Opportunist, Flatterers, Cowards and Stupid fools who wanted a bit of coin for their selfish purpose.

What is Bit of Coin ? And why people are interested in Bit of Coin My son asked me after listening to the story.

I Started story once Again.

The King wished to wear the finest cloth on earth. Great weavers came.

Prepared nice muslin cloth for him; But he was not satisfied and asked for more fine cloth. And then more fine cloth…. finer ….But, never satisfied.

Finally the head weaver arrived And made the finest cloth for the king which is invisible and used most valuable technology and told to king that the value will appreciate in future (guess what it is )

Everyone viewed the king naked and stumbled upon the technology used for weaving the cloths.

But still they were clapping, shouting — excellent, what a fantastic dress!

Some praised because of their habit of flattery,Some praised because of fear,

Others who had mortgaged their common sense to some others,

Praised in belief that after all it is the dress of the king,So, although it is not visible but still it is there !

Now my son asked me the technology behind the king’s great investment which made people to show interest in bit of coin.

Now I do not know the technology so i have decided i should give a name to technology and told my so that is a sort of Black Technology it keeps all the threads in distributed form so that cloth is invisible and man is visible.

MY WIFE SHOUTED AT ME

STOP THAT STORY…………..TECHNOLOGY IS GOOD . FINALLY EVERY ONE WILL UNDERSTAND PURPOSE BEHIND TECHNOLOGY.

You are talking wrong about technology. It has created new revolution in human history.

I said Yes you are right.

THE BEAUTY OF BLACK TECHNOLOGY LIES IN CONCEPT AND NOT IN CODING. THE PURPOSE OF CODING IS TO MAKE CLOTH INVISIBLE AND TRUTH VISIBLE.

BUT EVERY WEAVER TALK ABOUT CODING AND LESS ABOUT CONCEPT. WE HAVE BIG LINE OF WEAVERS INTERESTED IN CODING AND ASKING FOR INVESTMENT AND VERY LESS PEOPLE TALK ABOUT CONCEPT AND THAT IS THE REASON I WANT TO write THIS STORY.

Exodus.io setup for Crypto

So you’ve already read through my post about getting crypto currency here: https://medium.com/@Kuehnse/getting-started-with-crypto-currency-4624a7834514

This is one wallet of many many many different wallets. This is my main wallet and that is why it is my first wallet set up post. More to come later.

Now I am going to show you how to easily store these cryptos on one of my favorite wallets, Exodus. I love the interface and the ease of use with Shapeshift exchange. On top of that Exodus allows you access to all of your Private Keys which are important to insure you are the owner of your coins.

Exodus is also a supporter of ERC20 tokens, so if you have any of these like OMG or BAT you can import them to your ETH address. Even though these do not show up on the Exodus GUI they are linked with your private key and can be tracked at https://etherscan.io/ with your Public key. If you wanted to export your tokens you would use your Private Key to link to MyEtherWallet.

“A private key is a tiny bit of code that is paired with a public key to set off algorithms for text encryption and decryption. It is created as part of public key cryptography during asymmetric-key encryption and used to decrypt and transform a message to a readable format. Public and private keys are paired for secure communication, such as email.

A private key is also known as a secret key.

A private key is shared only with the key’s initiator, ensuring security. For example, A and B represent a message sender and message recipient, respectively. Each has its own pair of public and private keys. A, the message initiator or sender, sends a message to B. A’s message is encrypted with B’s public key, while B uses its private key to decrypt A’s received message.” — https://www.techopedia.com/definition/16135/private-key

You always want to keep your private key secret. In this post I will be show you how to set up an Exodus.io wallet on windows, it is the same exact thing for Mac as well. They also have it available for Linux.

Twitter: https://twitter.com/Crypt0Prof

Step 1:

Go to https://www.exodus.io (you can always go to browser and type it in) navigate to download.

Once you have navigated to which ever system you are installing on it will automatically download. For windows you will have to click ‘Save’ at the bottom of the browser and then ‘run.’

Step 2:

Now you will open the Exodus.exe file and install the progam. You should see a screen with the install window.

Once installed you can navigate to your search bar and open the Exodus application.

Step 3:

Opened it will bring you to a welcome page. Here Exodus shows you all of the coins that it currently has available. From here you will have to make a deposit before you can set up your security features.

Step 4:

Navigate to the Wallet tab on the left hand side. Navigate to which ever coin you would like to transfer in order to activate the wallet. Here I chose, BTC.

Step 5:

Click receive. A window will pop up with a QR code and an Address. You can either copy and paste the public key or scan the QR code. Both work great but please double check the received address was copied correctly, always.

Step 6:

Now that your transaction was complete a red ! pops up next to the tab ‘backup.’

Click ‘backup’ on the left hand side and start your security feature imputs.

Step 7:

A strong password is crucial. This is money we are talking about. Come up with something very unique that no one could guess, not even your closest family members. You can always write this password on hard paper, but I would not keep it on a computer. You should also keep it separate from your email password because Exodus stores your backup file on the email provided (that should also have a hard password).

Step 8:

After you have submitted your password TWICE it will spit out a 12 word phrase. These 12 words are so important. If your computer fails you can take the recovery backup in your email, put in your 12 word phrase and everything will be there. These 12 word phrases should be kept in a very secret place, and should always be kept. Without them you may land yourself in a bit of trouble later on, if you need to switch computers.

Step 9:

Submitting a proper email is important. Exodus will send you the backup link in case anything happens. You need to have access to this email so that you can recover your funds with your 12 word phrase.

Step 10:

Enjoy Exodus. Now you can transfer currency to a safe spot. You can go to the Exchange tab to exchange coins easily through ShapeShift.

On the home page you can see all of your assets and how much of a percentage they make of your portfolio.

Centra — A new promising project to spend your digital currencies

Every month,new projects always appear and seek to make a start by raising the funds among many people through IPO, ICO, or crowdsale.

And today, I’ll talk about Centra.

Centra is an interesting project that offers “ Multi-Blockchain Worldwide Debit Card & Insured Wallet

It means that Centra will seem to provide a functional debit card that can be funded by using various crypto-currencies or blockchain assets and as well as creating an insured wallet. Even though there’s already exsited many of projects that offer a cryptocurrencies debit card aswell, but Centra at its present carrying many unique features to beat those which have existed.

As mentioned in the website of Centra’s. They’ve designed 3 Products that soon will be published after their ICO ends. and here’s the explanations:

Centra Card & Wallet

Quoting from their website

The Centra Card has been designed to give you full control of your assets. You will be able to convert them in real time at market value to the fiat used without any fees all thanks to our CCE Module. We have solved the ability to spend your cryptocurrencies in todays world.
The Centra Wallet allows the storage of your block chain assets securely with full insurance on your assets from theft and hackers. Trust knowing your funds will be secure on our network without worrying. You will also have the ability to fine tune settings to fit your needs for both your wallet and card.

This card exists to solve the problem which many cryptocurrencies or blockchain assets holders in real life, they offers you a simple way to spend crypto-currencies and blockchain assets just by using the debit card they offer.

The insured wallet also exists to keep your money with insurance, so all the lose caused by hackers will be covered by the insurance company. Seems to be a good feature they bring over there.

cBay.io — An interesting Centra’s marketplace

Our cBay platform gives our users the ability to purchase over 100,000 items from our market using their cryptocurrency. You will have the ability to use your Centra Wallet to pay for goods or pay direct from any wallet of your choice.
We will give the world the ability to spend their assets to purchase real goods on the internet. Choose from electronics, clothing items, household goods and more with worldwide shipping. The Cryptocurrency marketplace will allow vendors in the future to list their products for sale on the platform.

Well, seeing from its name, it does sounds similiar isn’t it? Centra plan to provide a “good” marketplace for their customers so that they can simply use their CTR tokens to buy goods and make it even functional.

They mentioned that there’ll be over 100,000 Items available in the marketplace and you’ll have the ability to use your centra wallet. A synced feature in one service is always a good thing I guess.

CTR Token

Centra Token (CTR) will be available and for sale to our users during our crowdsale. There will be many benefits to our Centra Troken Holders. Our reward system has been designed to give incentives to users whom hold the tokens.
CTR Tokens may be purchased via BTC, ETH, or LTC. CTR Tokens have been designed to be able to be used in our cBay Marketplace as well as spendable on the Centra Card worldwide anywhere that accepts Visa or MasterCard. CTR Tokens will be available to purchase on Exchanges post the ICO period.

CTR token, which you can buy here: https://www.centra.tech/token-sale (ICO Period only)and you can buy on many exchanges aswell soon to be announced is a Token that Centra provides for its investors as exchange to what their investors have invested. It has so many features that not all people can have.

And one more thing, CTR token can be used to funds the debit card which Centra provides to spend in majority parts of the world which accept Visa or Mastercard

Centra’s Token sale is now currently UP and open for public to invest, they’ve gathered many dollars within short amount of time and that’s exactly reflects how the public evaluate them based on their capability.

If you really want to invest go to their site : https://www.centra.tech/token-sale/ and be sure to follow the contribtion rules to avoid something that might give you such inconvenience

Contribution Rules
- You have to send ETH funds from your personal Ethereum wallets like MyEtherWallet, Metamask, Parity, Mist or Ledger (hardware wallet)
- DO NOT send funds from exchanges like Coinbase, Poloniex etc. Transfer funds to your wallet first
- DO NOT send your funds before the fundraiser has begun
- Set Gas Limit to 200,000 (during high-load network)

- Only send ETH to: 0x96A65609a7B84E8842732DEB08f56C3E21aC6f8a

And that’s all what I can say so far, If you want to know the details about this project furthermore, you should really read their white paper which will definitely explain what is this project for people who still wondering

Weekly Cryptocurrency Market Outlook August 15

BTCManager's Weekly Cryptocurrency Outlook highlights the price action and technical indicators on a long-term basis to identify the best opportunities in the largest cryptocurrencies, such as bitcoin, ether, and others.

BTC-USD (Bitstamp)

Bitcoin triggered the Bullish Saucer signal on August 8, breaking above $3339.66, and subsequently went on to establish a new high at $4400 on August 15.

Last week saw bulls dominate, but bears managed to push back, down from the high near $4200 and bringing the close to $4053.87, shown by the chart below.

The market attained our target at $4270.80, the first Fibonacci extension level. We look for a weekly close above $4270.80 to confirm a continuation of the long-term uptrend. On the other hand, support lies at $2980, the previous all-time high, and should provide strong support in the event of a prolonged pullback. Moreover, the conversion line (blue) also offers support at $3115, so we may see a test of this support before any further upside.

The daily timeframe is displayed below, with important supports standing at $3342.99 and $3178.72. The conversion line has held as support for August 15, at $3789.36. The market came within $15 of this critical support, posting a fresh low at $3800, but since then, buyers have managed to bring BTC-USD back above the $4000 handle.

Momentum is still indicated to be bullish by the Awesome Oscillator and the Ichimoku indicator. The conversion line may flatten out in the days ahead and give us an idea of where to place limit buy orders to get in on the uptrend. However, a daily close below the conversion line will point to a higher likelihood of an imminent test of the supports at $3342.99 and $3178.72.

On the 4-hour timeframe, the most recent fractal resistance lies at $4400, so we look to buy once this resistance is broken. On the other hand, a fractal support will form at $3800, suggesting short-term momentum will be skewed to the upside. Based on these fractals, we look to buy on a break above $4400, and sell on a dive below $3800, with a target of around $3350-$3200. A break above $4400 will see the market attempt our next target at $4730.74.

ETH-USD (Kraken)

The weekly price action for ETH-USD is interesting, as it seems to present a bullish setup for next week, but the Ichimoku simultaneously suggests a weakening outlook.

Firstly, the positive side for ether bulls. Notice the Awesome Oscillator, which was red in color and falling in value for five consecutive weeks but this week it has turned green and begun to rise. This is known as a Bullish Saucer and sets up a buy signal for next week; that is, a limit buy at the high of the current week’s candlestick.

Once triggered, we should see ETH-USD invalidate the fractal resistance at $320 and drift toward the all-time high.

On the other hand, a failure of the bullish saucer signal may see ETH-USD dive lower toward $250 and $208, supports highlighted by the conversion and base lines. Notice that the conversion line is moving lower and looks to cross the base line, which would give a weak bearish signal. A fractal resistance is also potentially going to form at $320, so if ether does not manage to regain this level in the next fortnight, a longer-term downtrend will be confirmed. More clarity will be given at the end of the week, once the current weekly candlestick has formed.

BCC-BTC (Bittrex)

Bitcoin Cash might be getting ready to make some large gains against bitcoin.

The daily chart below shows that the conversion line (blue) has moved higher on August 15, suggesting a short-term equilibrium around 0.0934. However, the market remains below an important fractal support at 0.0785. BCC-BTC must regain this level for a bullish outlook.

Once BCC-BTC regains the fractal support, we should look to target 0.0934, with a daily close above the conversion line providing a stronger bullish signal. Given that the conversion line is moving higher, and assuming it continues, we get an indication that the market will also head higher. Also, notice that the lagging line (purple) seems to have bottomed out and is also following the conversion line.

The 4-hour price action shown below indicates that we may see a bullish breakout for bitcoin cash on August 17. The chart shows that the red Ichimoku cloud is very thin for the entirety of August 17’s trading session; a thin cloud suggests very weak resistance, and if BCC-BTC is going to make some strong gains, it is very likely to begin on August 17. On the other hand, since the cloud is red and looks to be getting ready to move lower, we look to sell on a break of the most recent fractal support at 0.0675.

LTC-USD (Bitfinex)

There are two main things to note from the weekly chart of LTC-USD. Firstly, this week’s price action looks to drop below the conversion line, potentially giving a weak bearish signal by August 21. Secondly, the market managed to break to a fresh high above $50, but this high may turn into a fractal resistance.

Notice that the preceding candlesticks have lower lows and lower highs. Therefore, if LTC-USD remains below $50.247 until August 28, we expect further downside, with the base line (red) providing an important support level at $29.60.

On the other hand, a weekly close above the conversion line, that is above $44.04, will keep the long-term uptrend intact. Furthermore, if we see LTC-USD break above $50.247 any time in the next two weekly trading sessions, this will give bullish confirmation. Finally, litecoin failed to close above the resistance at $48.20 last week and a weekly close above this level will also give a strong bullish signal and a reason to enter into a long position.

NEO-BTC (Bittrex)

NEO displayed its largest ever gain in a single week against bitcoin, rising over 100 percent on large volumes, as Forbes' August 10 article put a spotlight on the project.

The weekly chart below identifies two possible areas of support where we look to buy NEO-BTC. Since last week’s action was dominated by bulls and the candlestick is almost a bullish Marubozu, we can use the open and 50 percent levels to find an entry to buy. The first support lies at 0.00844130 whereas further support will be found at 0.00493265. Also, notice that bullish momentum should strengthen, as the conversion line is moving higher above the base line and the Awesome Oscillator continues to move higher too.

The daily price action for NEO-BTC is shown below with a Dragonfly Doji looking to form for August 15. This doji candlestick pattern suggests that bulls will continue to dominate, as the low of August 15’s price action was very close to the conversion line, which provides support at 0.0092. If bears manage to take hold, we should see increased buying interest around the supports at 0.0089 and 0.0067. Alternatively, we look to buy once the market breaks the most recent fractal at 0.01199999 or with a daily close above 0.01190.

XMR-USD (Bitfinex)

Monero showed some indecision last week, with a slightly bullish slant, posting a a two month high at $53.43.

However, bears tempered bulls back to $48 by the end of the week. However, like ether, we are seeing a potential opportunity for a long position for the week beginning August 21. Notice that the Awesome Oscillator is forming a bullish saucer, which will be confirmed on August 21.

Moreover, the conversion line has jumped higher compared to last week, suggesting the general market direction will be upward. We look to place limit buy orders near the conversion line at $40.71. A break above the recent high at $53.43 will also necessitate a bullish outlook; by invalidating the fractal resistance that is in progress, we should see an attempt to find a new ceiling by the market, with a further resistance at $58.14.

Finally, we can also examine this week’s candlestick close and compare it to $47.85 for an indication of the long-term momentum of XMR-USD. For instance, a closer higher than $47.85 means that is will be likely XMR-USD continues the upward trend. However, a weekly close below $47.85 could mean that the altcoin will display some weakness.

OMG-BTC (Bittrex)

OmiseGo is a relatively new Ethereum-based token gaining a lot of attention from traders; when judging by the 24 hour volume, it is within the top ten cryptocurrencies.

The daily chart below illustrates a bullish outlook for OMG-BTC, as it looks as if another test of the Fibonacci extension level at 0.00203578 is due. Notice the flat conversion line has held as support. We could place buy limit orders around the conversion line and base line and target the Fibonacci levels at 0.00203578 and 0.00308076.

ARK-BTC (Bittrex)

The altcoin ARK has displayed high volume over the past 24 hours, as well as compared to any other week, shown by the chart below.

At the time of writing, the trading volume for ARK is similar to that of Ethereum Classic and DASH. The weekly price action shows an interesting market structure, with just three fractals formed so far in ARK-BTC’s history.

Two are down fractals (supports) and one is an up fractal (resistance). Notice that the market has tested the fractal resistance at 0.00044206 so far; a sustained break or weekly close above this level will open up the first resistance at 0.00196608. Notice that this is the 50 percent level of the large bearish Marubozu for the week that Bittrex listed the crypto-pair. Given the relatively short history and that the lagging line has broken all of its resistances, 0.00044206 is the nearest resistance given the limited information that we have from the market price and its behaviour.

We also see that the conversion line has started to form an uptrend, moving higher this week. Since the market has remained below the conversion line since mid-June, it could be the week where we get the first close above this important support. However, the market may close a lot higher, given no prior resistances and the increase in the volume, so we suggest buying on a break of the fractal at 0.00044206 or once we get the weekly close, providing it is not too far away from the conversion line.

Bitcoin Surpassed $4,300 But 99.98% of World’s Capital is On The Sidelines

On August 14, the price of bitcoin surpassed the $4,300 mark, achieving yet another new all-time high. Amidst a strong week-long rally triggered by the rising tension between the US and North Korea, increasing demand from institutional investors and the hotly anticipated activation of Segregated Witness, the bitcoin dominance index recovered to 50 percent, as […]

The Bitcoin Split and What I Did Today in the Crypto World

Some practical steps to get start investing in cryptocurrencies

Last November, I did a Hackathon as a recent graduate at my local university in the blockchain space. Together with 3 other undergraduate students and 1 graduate student, I delved deep into the world of blockchain technology in 36 near-sleepless, caffeine-fueled hours. I regret nothing.

As a result, I developed some basic blockchain smart contracts in Solidity and a proprietary service called BlockApps. I have lost some of the specifics of what I learned, but the burning desire to learn more and do something great in the blockchain space remains.

Today was a momentous day in the cryptocurrency space: Bitcoin split into two branches-the main Bitcoin branch and another branch called the Bitcoin Cash.

Surprisingly, such a momentous event did not significantly affect bitcoin’s price (it remains stable at around $2700. The new currency ended at over $400, reiterating investors’ belief in the new cryptocurrency’s ability to carve a new niche in the blockchain and cryptocurrency space.

Here are 6 concrete steps that I took today as a result of the BitCoin split, which I got from professional advice from Jeff Kirdeikis, the mentor behind the Etherium investing Facebook group. Look him up — he’s great! During our one-hour Skype session, he recommended most of the steps listed below, as well as gave me many invaluable tips on how to perform technical analysis.

0. Leave all of my Bitcoin as it is: with the huge fluctuations in BTC in the days before and after August 1st, I’m leaving my wallet as it is to make sure that nothing too bad happens to it. I’m following the Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger philosophy of buying and holding for the long run.

1. Move all of my Ethereum off of Coinbase (a well-known Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin digital asset exchange and storage website) and GDAX (a Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin trading platform) and into MyEtherWallet — a much more secure digital wallet service.

2. Preorder Ledger Nano X: The Ledger Nano X is a hardware device that stores private keys, addresses, and encrypted data in a far more secure way that all online and paper wallets.

3. Set up a cex.io account in order to buy a few hundred dollars of the following up-and-coming alt-coins: Golem (~200), Stratas (~200), Iota (~200), Eos (~100), and Osimego (~100) on Bittrex.com. The last two, Eos and Osimego, are more speculative, so that’s why I’m putting a bit less into these cryptocurrencies. After I figure out how to place a stop-limit order, I’ll store some coins on MyEtherWallet, and store the rest that are incompatible on JAXX.com, an offline app.

4. Sign up for the Poloniex (a similar service to Coinbase) Whale private service. It’s 45$ and gives detailed portfolio recommendations for the current crypto markets and a private Slack channel. I’ll keep you all updated on how this service goes! I have my doubts on these types of subscription services, so a cancelation might be in the works.

Steps that I will take in the next few days:

1. Figure out how to place stop-limit orders on Bittrex to purchase the alt-coins and then place those orders.

2. Wait until the Bitcoin fork settles, and then buy more. I will apply dollar cost averaging to buy and hold 90% of my assets in the all cryptocurrencies, with a roughly 40/40/20 split between Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other altcoins.

Wish me luck, and leave a comment below! See you all soon, friends.
