Bitcoin has shown growth in one metric that suggests positive views about adoption and the potential to reach new users. Active addresses and new addresses have grown, with a special uptick since 2017.Adoption, Activity Show Spike as Bitcoin Addresses Grow ConstantlyAfter BTC entered its most active bull market in December 2017, ownership expanded, with 124 million addresses created in total. Even during the bear market, and a rather tame 2019, address growth continued, at above 300,000 new addresses per day, shows analysis by Decentralized.The last decade also showed that “hodling” is much more than a meme, and is, in fact, one of the most prominent patterns in BTC ownership.“For a sense of scale, the number of people holding more than 0 bitcoin in Jan 2011 was a mere 70,0000. Today that number is north of 28 million — a 400x growth over the decade,” revealed the analysis.Of course, over that time, more than 18 million BTC were minted, allowing a wider audience to access the coins. But factors such as a larger number of exchanges, as well as added retail…Jan 12, 2020
Institutional traders have long known the benefits of derivatives trading, including leverage and hedging. By trading options markets, one can predetermine maximum gains and losses, even with volatile assets like Bitcoin (BTC). Despite being far more complex, such instruments allow traders to generate gains independent of what happens over the next weeks or even months, which is essential for traders’ peace of mind to achieve optimal performance.Retail traders have only recently begun using derivatives, although they have focused almost exclusively on futures contracts offered by BitMEX, OKEx, Binance and so many others. The main problem here is liquidation risk, as cryptocurrencies are incredibly volatile.Buying a call option? Here are the costs and benefitsThe buyer of a call option can acquire Bitcoin for a fixed price on a predetermined date. For that privilege, the buyer pays an upfront premium for the call option seller. Contracts have a set maturity date and strike price so that everyone knows potential gains and losses beforehand.If Bitcoin appreciates over the following hours or days, the price paid for this call option should increase. The buyer could…Apr 1, 2020

Vox recently edited the word “China” out of a coronavirus explainer video on YouTube. Is this political correctness gone too far?Or deceptive editing by the center left news and opinion site in the wake of bad faith criticisms of Donald Trump retweeting the words “Wuhan Virus?”If so, it sure does make Twitter’s decision not to add an edit button — despite overwhelming user demand– quite understandable.Sometime over the weekend, or possibly early Monday, Vox edited the word “China” out of its coronavirus explainer video on YouTube.You can tell, because as recently as Saturday afternoon an Indian Twitter user tweeted out a link to an article featuring the video and referenced the original title:Why New Diseases Keep Appearing In ChinaWhy new diseases keep appearing in China? Holy mustache of Martin Luther King, did a white supremacist write that title? A MAGA-hat wearing, immigrant-bashing, xenophobic, Always Trumper, total nationalist wrote that for sure right?That’s the impression you’d get from the massive backlash against Donald Trump and other Republicans on anti-Trump Twitter for using the term “Wuhan Virus” to describe the coronavirus that…Mar 23, 2020
For many, trading cryptocurrency can be a challenge, but the process is made easier if one relies on a combination of technical analysis tools and oscillators to provide insight on which path digital assets like Bitcoin (BTC) might take. Typically, one sees traders employ the relative strength index (RSI), moving average divergence convergence (MACD), Stochastic RSI (Stoch) and a mixture of exponential moving averages (EMAs), Bollinger Bands, volume measurements and so on. This is good and well, and utilizing these tools often provides great results for traders. The difficulty of relying on these tools increases when Bitcoin’s price action becomes range bound and consolidates for lengthy amounts of time like it has done for the past two weeks. This leads intraday traders to search for other tools that provide insight into Bitcoin’s market structure. To get some clarity on the less studied metrics retail investors might be unaware of, Cointelegraph spoke with Christopher Inks of TexasWest Capital — market research and educational firm dedicated to providing accurate market data and digital asset trading courses for novice traders.

The turbulent market conditions that Bitcoin has been experiencing over the past several days and weeks has muddied the clarity that many analysts and investors previously had with regards to the strength of the firm 2020 uptrend BTC was previously caught within.Although the cryptocurrency has been able to post a decent bounce from its recent lows, it still remains unclear as to whether or not the damage done by its recent downtrend is enough to invalidate the bullish market structure formed by its recent rally. Much to the chagrin of bears, however, Bitcoin’s on-chain economic data seems to paint a bullish picture, with multiple different factors suggesting that it is still undervalued and that a price rebound is imminent.Bitcoin’s Technical and Fundamental Strength Suggests a Rebound is Imminent The past few days have been rough for Bitcoin, with the cryptocurrency plummeting to lows of $8,400 before finding some support that has allowed it to climb up to $8,850 today. Today’s climb also comes as the recent decline in on-chain activity grinds to a halt, which may have a loose correlation with…Mar 3, 2020
A lot of cryptocurrency enthusiasts have high hopes for the MimbleWimble protocol. It would unlock additional privacy features, not just for Grin, but other coins implementing this technology in the future. In a recent post by Ivan Gobatyy, however, it becomes apparent there are some key flaws associated with the privacy aspect of this technology. MimbleWimble has a Privacy ProblemHe explains how it is possible to uncover the addresses of senders and recipients of the Grin currency in real-time.What is even more astounding is how it would only cost $60 per week through Amazon Web Services to obtain this type of information. For users of Grin, this is something to genuinely be worried about at this time.The big question is whether the problem can be fixed through conventional means or not. So far, it seems that this will not be the case.It is not the first time MimbleWimble comes under fire regarding its implementation of privacy. Researchers floated the idea of a potential major weakness for some time now, and those suspicions have now been confirmed. What is interesting is how there are limitations…Nov 19, 2019
Famous gold bug Peter Schiff made another anti-Bitcoin (BTC) claim, pointing out that it’s the only asset class that is not rallying by the end of 2019.As United States stocks recently hit new all-time high, Schiff has provided his sarcastic remark that Bitcoin’s price doesn’t correlate with performance of other asset classes such as U.S. stocks, precious metals and others. Schiff tweeted on Dec. 27:“Bitcoin is not disappointing those who claim its true value is that it’s a non-correlated asset. Every asset class in the world is rallying into the end of the year except Bitcoin. Not sure what value this actually adds, but at least #Bitcoin is meeting expectations on something!”U.S. stock market hits historical highsSchiff’s statement comes after the U.S. stock market recorded a new historical high, rallying into the end of 2019. On Dec. 26, CNBC reported that all three major stock averages hit their ATHs, with the Nasdaq Composite (NASDAQ) breaking the 9,000 mark for the first time in history as well as the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) and the S&P 500 (SPX) hitting 28,621…Dec 29, 2019
