What Is the Coinbase Stock Symbol? - Money Morning

I'm wondering if anyone else would be interested in this?

So a little background here. I am a programmer by trade (I also own an arcade called 1984, but that isn’t overly relevant). I decided to jump into the whole cryptocurrency thing since 1) I just enjoy reading about things, 2) I keep hearing the phrase “blockchain” and it was time to get up to speed on that, and 3) some outfit in the same building as my office has put together some crypto coin offering.
Obviously I’m fascinated with bitcoin now, not only as a currency but as a technology, and I bought in, a little, at about 9400. As it turns out it’s fun to check the current asking price and see how things are going and so on…. Except that I began to get a little nervous about leaving my balance just sitting there in Coinbase, so I moved it to Electrum on my desktop. Then I got a little nervous about THAT and ordered a hardware wallet, which should show up in a day or so. But this causes a problem!
Without my balance sitting in Coinbase, there’s no easy way to check what my bitcoin is actually WORTH. I can watch the trade numbers go up and down, that’s fun, but I have to pull out my calculator and type in a bunch of numbers to get what my USD value equates to. And being the greedy bastard that I am, I want to know that amount.
I found a link to an online calculator (https://www.coindesk.com/calculator) that lets you type in your amount and it automagically shows you what your current USD value is, but you have to type the numbers in every time you want to check. There’s no instant gratification to it.
What I wanted was an app that I could type my current bitcoin amount into, and it would pull down the latest trading numbers and show me on the fly what my current USD value is. The next time I launched the app I wanted it to remember what my bitcoin amount is. I did NOT want it connected to any kind of wallet, for security reasons and lazy reasons. Better still if I could watch the fluctuations, like a ticker.
I looked around for an app, and while I found a number of ticker apps, there didn’t seem to be anything that did what I wanted. So I wrote one. The screen shot is it running on Xcode’s iPhone simulator.

My questions are: would anyone else be interested in this? Should I take the time to submit it to the Apple Store, move the code over to Android, etc, or should I just slap a development provisioning profile on it and let it only live on my phone? I also have a desktop version running, both in OS X and Windows. Would anyone be interested in that?

BCH nov15-dec15 update . BCH moves along and claims its #4 place back on CMC


https://news.bitcoin.com/hash-wars-bch-proponents-face-a-new-dawn-in-the-battles-aftermath/


35 days later after the fork, Bitcoin Cash supporters are working towards moving past the hash war that took place a little after the scheduled BCH upgrade on Nov. 15. Now both networks are operating and the Bitcoin Satoshi’s Vision (BSV) coin has its own price ticker and market capitalization listed on data sites like Coinmarketcap and Satoshi Pulse. A portion of crypto-trading platforms have now listed BSV as a separate currency and the entire ecosystem of exchanges, payment processors and a great majority of wallets have awarded the ABC side of the chain the BCH ticker. At the time of writing, the global average price for BCH is $144 after markets jumped 47 percent on Dec. 19. BSV spiked 18 percent this Tuesday and each coin is currently trading for $92 per token.

Since the fork, the BCH network hashrate has dropped considerably, even more so than the 50 percent loss BTC suffered this past month. Average hashrates for a great number of SHA-256 algorithm coins have endured deep drops in processing power according to global statistics. The Bitcoin Cash hashrate used to command a rough average of 5 exahash per second (EH/s), but now only captures 1 EH/s to 850 petahash per second (PH/s) on a daily basis throughout this month.

On the bright side, the BCH network has been 5-8 percent more profitable to mine than BTC over the last two days. Further, BCH has amassed a large swathe of different mining pools that are processing BCH blocks on a regular basis. This includes Viabtc, Btc.com, Antpool, Multipool, Bitcoin.com, Btc.top, Waterhole, Copernicus, P2pool, Ckpool, and some other unknown mining entities as well.

Another BCH metric that has halved since the fork on Nov. 15 is the cryptocurrency’s daily transaction rate over the last month. Before, bitcoin cash transactions per day were about 20,000-25,000, whereas today that number stands at roughly 9,750 over the course of the last 24 hours. Over the last three weeks, the BCH daily transaction rate has been averaging 10k per day, with a few instances of 15k-22k spikes here and there. There has been a steady increase in daily transactions week after week, and with 99 percent of BCH infrastructure back in order, this should continue.

A good example of this behavior is the increase in BCH price and trade volume on exchanges over the last few weeks. Pre-fork BCH trade volumes captured anywhere between $400-900 million worth of global trades every day. After the fork, this statistic dropped to around $50-100 million daily on global exchanges. This was because some cryptocurrency trading platforms with a ton of bitcoin cash liquidity had paused BCH transactions and some exchanges halted trading. Week after week, however, global BCH trade volume has been steadily increasing on exchanges like Upbit, Binance, Huobi, Lbank, and Coinbase Pro. With the 40 percent increase over the last 24 hours, BCH trade volume has jumped to over $400 million in global trades on Dec. 19. At the time of publication, this makes BCH the seventh most traded digital asset out of the entire crypto economy.

The Bitcoin Cash community had also suffered from daily battles on Reddit’s btc forum and social media platforms like Twitter. A good portion of the trolling and infighting seems to have quietened down, and most BCH supporters are just trying to move forward. There’s been plenty of developments since the fork, with projects like Electron Cash, Honest Cash, Cash Shuffle, and Openswap adding more utility to the BCH network. Furthermore, BCH enthusiasts look forward to the upcoming BCH upgrades that are under discussion and they can track the code’s development too. For now, BCH supporters are extremely pleased that the fork is behind them and are thrilled to reclaim fourth position among all cryptocurrency market capitalizations.

These Bitcoin companies already announced their position regarding a potential fork. If you didn't yet, please let your users know where you stand.

A joint statement by 20 exchanges

Including: Bitfinex, Bitstamp, BTCC, Kraken, BTC China, Poloniex, itBit, ShapeShift, bitt and others.
...we have decided to designate the Bitcoin Unlimited fork as BTU (or XBU). The Bitcoin Core implementation will continue to trade as BTC
However, none of the undersigned can list BTU unless we can run both chains independently without incident. Consequently, we insist that the Bitcoin Unlimited community (or any other consensus breaking implementation) build in strong two-way replay protection.
https://www.bitfinex.com/bitcoin_hardfork_statement

Bitgo

We are 100% supportive of the safe, tested SegWit functionality available for activation in core code today and believe it is by far the safest way to gain additional block space in the near term.
Bitcoin Unlimited does not meet the above tests for being a supportable fork today. In fact, it fails all three criteria. Additionally, there are serious problems with “emergent consensus”...
As such, we will not be able to provide support for a hard fork caused by Bitcoin Unlimited in its current form.
https://blog.bitgo.com/bitgos-approach-to-handling-a-hard-fork-71e572506d7d#.y9we2glr2

Bitrated

We cannot responsibly support Bitcoin Unlimited on the Bitrated platform as an altcoin due its lack of hardfork-related safety measures, its inherent re-org instability and its potentially prohibitive operational costs.
Bitrated is technically, financially and logistically unable to safely and reasonably support networks with unbounded block size or with the “emergent consensus” mechanism
In the case of the mainline Bitcoin client adopting an unbounded block size proposal, we will be forced to shut our full-nodes off and cease offering services for the BTC currency.
https://medium.com/@bitrated/bitrateds-position-on-network-splits-and-bitcoin-unlimited-4685c5c3f8e8

Canadian Bitcoin Economic Nodes

We support the activation of Segregated Witness as an immediate solution to Bitcoin scaling and as a fundamental component of a long-term capacity increases roadmap.
Any contentious hard fork of the Bitcoin blockchain shall be considered an alternative cryptocurrency (altcoin), regardless of the relative hashing power on the forked chain.
In addition, we believe Emergent Consensus fundamentally alters the nature of Bitcoin by increasing the responsibilities and powers of the Bitcoin miners, disrupting the existing checks and balances system.
https://hackernoon.com/canadian-bitcoin-economic-nodes-unite-against-bitcoin-unlimited-412786fb4bb6

Colu

...we support SegWit, both as an immediate yet cautious increase in block size, and as a first step for solutions like Lightning, which we are already building on.
We clearly recommend that issuers choose Bitcoin Core, as we believe it’s the safest option. For this reason, all hosted infrastructure supplied by us will continue to use Bitcoin Core. We also won’t be able to provide support for other forks.
https://medium.com/colu/on-coins-of-color-and-forks-of-force-1363f3977170#.rsf3njy60

Electrum

I, Thomas Voegtlin, support Segregated Witness as a scaling solution for Bitcoin, and I am opposed to a hard fork initiated by miners running Bitcoin Unlimited.
http://docs.electrum.org/en/latest/hardfork.html

Bitsquare

As many of you might have noticed on Twitter, Bitsquare is in clear opposition to BU and I personally consider it not only as a reckless and irresponsible behavior [...] but as a political attack on Bitcoin.
In the rather unlikely event that they really start a hard fork and the even more unlikely event that they would succeed to take over the Bitcoin network and destroy the current version I would either move the main currency to what will be the follower project of the current Bitcoin Core development branch or move to another Altcoin like Monero.
This personal position might explain why I react rather emotional and radical in regards to BU. I experience it not only as a threat for Bitcoin but as a threat to the work I was spending my time the last 3 years.”
https://forum.bitsquare.io/t/how-bitsquare-would-deal-with-a-bu-hard-fork/1780

Poloniex

We will support Bitcoin Core continuously as BTC.
Poloniex agrees that any contentious hard fork must include replay attack protection
https://poloniex.com/press-releases/2017.03.17-Hard-Fork

Armory

The Armory developers (goatpig, droark, and achow101) support Segregated Witness as is in its current form, and also support Bitcoin Core. The Armory developers also oppose hard forks that may attack the original chain.
https://github.com/achow101/BitcoinArmory/blob/gh-pages/_posts/2017-3-26-armory-and-hard-forks.md

Bitonic / Bl3p

We will not consider contentious hard forks (without industry-wide consensus) as Bitcoin. Instead we will consider it an alternative cryptocurrency which we will not, out of principle, support.
... we are not financially and technically capable of supporting Bitcoin Unlimited based on the "Emergent Consensus" principle, not for ourselves and not for our customers.
BL3P will, in any case, continue to support the blockchain that is based on the Bitcoin Core software. The bitcoins on this chain will be listed as 'BTC'.
https://bitonic.nl/en/news/121/statement-possible-split-in-bitcoin https://bl3p.eu/news/16/Hard+fork+policy+

GreenAddress

GreenAddress does not support contentious hard forks that risk disenfranchising users, irrespective of hashing power. We believe that such an outcome would create an irreparable precedent that would severely undermine social trust in Bitcoin and potentially set it back for years to come.
https://blog.greenaddress.it/2017/03/27/greenaddress-position-on-contentious-forks/

Blockchainlab Milan

Indispensable prerequisites for a hard fork to be not contentious are:
  1. Clear activation and on-chain coordination processes.
  2. Long grace period which reflects a pessimistic and conservative assessment of node upgrade capacity.
  3. Strong 2-way replay protection which does not place excessive burden on the users.
  4. Wipe-out protection, meaning that the hard fork must be permanent.
  5. Must be entirely open-source at all times of the development and implementation process.
  6. Must be peer-reviewed and tested extensively over a sustained period of time.
Currently Bitcoin Unlimited is not in compliance with any of points outlined.
https://medium.com/@BHBnetwork/bhb-statement-on-proposed-hard-fork-7b8f82da05e5

Coins.ph

Coins.ph supports a single version of Bitcoin, which is Bitcoin Core (BTC)
we consider any hard fork which is rolled out without industry-wide consensus, and therefore splits the network, to be an altcoin, not Bitcoin itself. This is irrespective of how much hash power the forked coin may have. Ours is only one voice of many, but this is entirely consistent with the view currently taken by the economic majority of Bitcoin exchanges.
http://blog.coins.ph/post/158960095064/how-coinsph-will-handle-a-bitcoin-fork

BitMEX

In the case of a fork, we support the plan as proposed by Bitfinex, Bitstamp, BTCC et al. It will not be possible for any exchange, including BitMEX, to support both chains separately. For these reasons, BU will not be listed or used as a deposit/withdrawal currency until replay protection is implemented and BU is not at risk of a blockchain reorganization if the Core chain becomes longer.
https://blog.bitmex.com/a-statement-on-the-possible-bitcoin-unlimited-hard-fork
Edit: adding others that come up in the comments

Coinbase

The only version of Bitcoin supported on the Coinbase platform today is Bitcoin Core, currently represented by the symbol BTC.
We may provide support for Bitcoin Unlimited in the future depending on market conditions and stability of the protocol, but we cannot guarantee whether or when such support may be available. Customers who wish to access both blockchains at the time of the hard fork should withdraw their BTC from Coinbase since we cannot guarantee what will happen during the hard fork or when this access may be available.
If one chain receives an overwhelming majority of support from miners, users, and exchanges, we reserve the right to alter the names of chains or discontinue support for certain chains in the future.
https://blog.coinbase.com/update-for-customers-with-bitcoin-stored-on-coinbase-904dea08ac5f

Shapeshift

If a fork happens (with BU or anything similar in the future), ShapeShift will list it as a new coin (new name, new symbol). This is purely for practical reasons, not a judgement for or against. If the market decides to follow the BU chain, then after enough time, and with enough clarity on the market's decision (ie - not ambiguous), we would refer to that chain as Bitcoin and ShapeShift may reassign the name/ticker.
Hardforking from the main chain doesn't create an altcoin. It creates a decision point, on which every market participate must judge for himself. The outcome of those decisions, unpredictable ahead of time, is a more appropriate declaration of the true Bitcoin than any specific group within. Stated differently, if a majority doesn't get to declare what Bitcoin is, then certainly neither does a minority. It is a choice we're happy leaving to the market, anything else is the exact kind of centralization that Bitcoin was built to resist.
ShapeShift supports SegWit and a HF to larger blocksize, but does not support BU. We are seeing the utility of the Bitcoin network decay with time (while simultaneously becoming more expensive), and SegWit plus a HF to bigger blocks is the most practical and reasonable short and medium term solution.
https://www.reddit.com/Bitcoin/comments/62dlaw/these_bitcoin_companies_already_announced_theidfluhe4/

Bitrefill

We strongly oppose any attempt of contentious hard forks in Bitcoin. We’re one of the biggest individual bitcoin e-merchants worldwide, processing tens of thousands of Bitcoin tx every month. Fees are a huge issue for us and our users who make many small-value transactions, but [...] hard forking Bitcoin risks destroying everything that makes it unique and working. There are far better solutions for lowering fees. SegWit is currently the best step forward for bitcoin, and we will be using it immediately once it becomes available.

Beginners Guide To Binance. How to Exchange Cryptocurrency

Beginners Guide to Binance. How to Exchange Cryptocurrency.

Binance is currently one of the largest cryptocurrency exchange in existence. Its appeal stems from its functionality, ease-of-use, and ability to trade and exchange hundreds of different altcoins. It certainly does look intimidating at first, but by the end of this guide, you’ll know how to: properly set up a Binance account, secure your Binance account, make cryptocurrency purchases through Binance, and use the basic exchange functionality.

Can you directly fund your Binance account?

No, and this is a common mistake made by newcomers in the space which is why I’m starting the guide off on this note. Binance doesn’t yet have the capability to convert fiat (your national currency) to crypto. In order to use Binance you need to purchase cryptocurrency from a separate exchange that allows you to do so (such as Coinbase), transfer the money to Binance, then make your altcoin purchase. I know that this seems a bit overbearing with all these steps involved but remember that we’re still in the early adoption phase of this industry and this is what is required to participate. This guide will show you the step-by-step process in how this is done to eliminate any confusion.

Creating a Binance Account

Creating a Binance account is extremely easy and requires very little in the way of identification.
  • Step 1: Visit Binance.com and click the “register” button. Make sure you are on the actual Binance website. There are many fakes out there in an attempt to phish for information, so be careful. I recommend bookmarking the correct Binance and keeping it in a folder along with other crypto related sites.
  • Step 2: Open the verification email Binance sends you to activate your account. At level 1, your account is technically “unverified”. However, all this means is that you are limited to the amount of BTC you can transfer off of the exchange per day. The limit for unverified accounts is 2BTC per day.
    Pro Tip: If you’re planning on purchasing large amounts, it pays to buy a little bit of Binance’s native token (BNB). Currently, you get a 50% discount on transaction fees when paying in BNB. More on how to do this later.
  • Step 3: Enable 2 factor authentication (2FA) Although not required, it is highly recommended you enable 2 factor authentication. 2-factor authentication requires you to input a unique numeric code in addition to your password. The most common method is Google Authenticator and you can easily download it from the App store or Google Play. You can easily enable 2FA in “Security” settings.
Once downloaded, and 2FA is enacted on your Binance account, Binance will have you scan, or enter a unique barcode into your Google Authenticator app. This will link the two accounts together. Also be sure to write down the secret key provided along with the QR code. If the device you have 2FA enabled on gets lost or damaged, the only way you’ll be able to gain access to your account is through that secret key.
Disclaimer: If you choose to change phones at some point, it is very important that you transfer over this information. Google Authenticator is device specific, and not properly transferring information will result in you losing access to your Binance account!
Alternatively, you can use text messaging as your 2FA but it isn’t nearly as safe. Phone porting is a very common attack in the crypto space. This is a social engineering attack in which the perpetrator will call up your phone carrier impersonating you, in attempt to gain access to your SIM card. Once the attacker has access to your SIM card, your phone will get deactivated and the attacker will be forwarded your 2FA authentication text messages.
This is why Google Authenticator is the preferred method for 2FA.

Funding Your Binance Account

Binance does not yet have the capabilities to convert your national currency to cryptocurrency. If you haven’t already, I recommend creating a Coinbase account as it is one of the exchanges that will allow you to do this. To fund your Binance account, you need to purchase crypto via Coinbase then send it to Binance. For more information, I have an extensive tutorial on how to use Coinbase here.

Making Cryptocurrency Purchases With Binance

I’m going to walk you through how to make a cryptocurrency purchase with Binance. In this example we’re going to purchase the altcoin Ripple (XRP) but the same process will work for any other altcoin that’s available through on Binance.
  • Step 1: Purchase Ethereum on Coinbase.
    I’m purchasing Ethereum instead of Bitcoin because Ethereum has much lower transaction fees than Bitcoin. Ethereum’s block time is also smaller than Bitcoin’s (~15 seconds as apposed to Bitcoin’s ~10 minutes) which means transactions on the Ethereum blockchain on average will be faster than Bitcoins.
  • Step 2: Find your Ethereum wallet address in Binance.
    In the menu, go to: Funds > Deposits. Shown here.
    Search ETH to bring up your Ethereum wallet address. What should appear is a long string of random numbers and letters. Click Copy Address. See photo.
  • Optional Step: Depending on your location, you may or may not have to pay a Coinbase transfer fee. If you see that you do and would rather not, you can mitigate this fee by sending your crypto to Coinbase Pro or GDAX then to Binance.
  • Step 3: Send your Ethereum from Coinbase to Binance
    In the Coinbase menu go to Accounts, find Ethereum then click Send. A prompt that looks like this should come up. Paste your Ethereum address and enter the amount your planning to send. Make sure you double check everything before you officially confirm the transaction.
If you’re hesitant to send a large amount of crypto right away, you can always send small amount as a test to make sure it goes through properly.
  • Step 4: Wait.
    It’ll take a bit of time for the transaction to occur. The amount of time it’ll take will depend on how congested the network is. Just be patient and it should all go through assuming you did everything correctly. During this process you’ll get two e-mails. One from Coinbase alerting that you sent Ethereum, and one from Binance alerting of a successful deposit.
  • Step 5: Set Ethereum as baseline currency.
    In the Binance menu go to: Exchange > Basic. We’ll be making the purchase with Ethereum so we need to set Ethereum as our baseline currency. Under the menu in the top right corner, you should see Favorites, BTC, ETH, BNB, and USDT. Click ETH to set Ethereum as the baseline. See the photo below:
    https://i.imgur.com/xPLGsem.png
  • Step 6: Select the cryptocurrency you want to purchase.
    We now have Ethereum as the baseline currency. Now we just need to tell Binance which cryptocurrency we’d like to purchase. In this example, we’re purchasing Ripple. Using the search bar shown here, type in the cryptocurrencies ticker. The ticker for Ripple is XRP. The results will be filtered down as such.
    If you don’t know the ticker for the cryptocurrency you’re trying to purchase, Coin Market Cap has that information available.
  • Step 7: Making the purchase.
    Go to the Market tab. As shown here. We’ll be focusing on the Buy XRP side. Market is the easiest method to make purchases as it is an agreement pay at what the current market price is. Notice how there’s options of 25%, 50%, 75%, 100%. By selecting 100%, you’re essentially saying you’d like to use 100% of your Ethereum funds to purchase XRP. 75% would be 75% of your Ethereum funds and so on. You’d click Buy to officially place your order.
    And there you go. That’s how you’d go about making a cryptocurrency purchase through Binance. You should be able to see your crypto by going to Funds > Balances. If it’s not there try Orders > Open Orders. It may still be trying to execute. The other order functions are Limit and Stop-Limit. Those work as follows:
    Limit: You can choose the amount you would like to pay per coin/token and the order will fill once the market reaches that designated price.
    Stop-Limit: A limit order will be executed once the price reaches the stop limit.

Fees

There’s a 0.01% trading fee using Binance. You can temporarily reduce this fee if you purchase Binance Coin (BNB) and enable BNB to pay for fee’s in your account settings. You see a full breakdown of the fee structure here.

Final Conclusions

And that’s how to use Binance! I know this process of purchasing altcoins can seem a bit tedious. Just remember that we’re sill in the early adoption phase of crypto, and this process over time will get more simple. As for now, this is what we must go through in order to partake in this industry. I’ll conclude this post by stating you should move your cryptocurrency off the Binance exchange and into a hardware wallet if possible. If a hardware wallet option is not available, then go the software wallet route. It is generally recommended NOT to leave cryptocurrency on exchanges, as there’s always the potential for an exchange to get hacked and your crypto, gone.
Thanks for reading!

[TASK] Fix this bit of code for me. See text for details.

I have a wordpress site and a page on the site requires a code to pull the market price of Bitcoin and then offer it for sale/purchase based on % increases or decreases I can set. Code is below.
I don't really care what website the market price is pulled from, just need the code for one page to display the following:
"We are currently purchasing BTC at $3,600US or $27,000TTD"

That $3,600 should be a function of a discount % applied to a market price from a website such as coinbase or bitstamp or some industry site where rates are constantly changing. I should be able to easily change the % in the code. The $27,000TTD is our currency. That figure should derive from the $3,600US figure x 7.5. So as the PRICE changes the TTD will change.

Conversely, I'd like to have a second set that reads the following:
"we are currently selling BTC at $4,000US or $30,000TTD"
Again, that $4,000US should be a function of a premium applied via a % to the standard market rate the code is pulling from a market site. Same x 7.5 to arrive at the TTD amount.

So I need two sets of codes that create these two different formulas. They will go on two separate pages.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS TASK, PLEASE MESSAGE ME WITH THE AMOUNT/FEE/CHARGE YOU WILL REQUIRE TO COMPLETE IT. I CAN PAY VIA PAYPAL.
Currently, the code is broken and displaying https://imgur.com/a/EmUumfS
Here's what it looks like:
```?php $url = "https://bitpay.com/api/rates"; $json = file_get_contents($url); $bitpay_data = json_decode($json, TRUE); $bitpay_usd_exchange_rate = $bitpay_data[2]["rate"]; $bitpay_ten_percent_usd_bitcoin_price = $bitpay_usd_exchange_rate * 0.10; $bitpay_ten_percent_increased_bitcoin_value = $bitpay_usd_exchange_rate + $ten_percent_usd_bitcoin_price; $bitpay_ten_percent_decrease_usd_bitcoin_price = $bitpay_usd_exchange_rate - $bitpay_ten_percent_usd_bitcoin_price ; $blockchainurl = "https://blockchain.info/ticker"; $json = file_get_contents($blockchainurl); $blockchain_data = json_decode($json, TRUE); $blockchain_usd_exchange_rate = $blockchain_data["USD"]["15m"]; $blockchain_ten_percent_usd_bitcoin_price = $blockchain_usd_exchange_rate * 0.10; $blockchain_ten_percent_increased_bitcoin_value = $blockchain_usd_exchange_rate + $blockchain_ten_percent_usd_bitcoin_price; $blockchain_ten_percent_decrease_usd_bitcoin_price = $blockchain_usd_exchange_rate - $blockchain_ten_percent_usd_bitcoin_price ; ?

Beginners Guide to Investing in Cryptocurrency from an Entrepreneurial Standpoint

Hey you guys and gals. I have been seeing a lot of new people coming into this sub and I was hoping to shed some of my opinions and things that helped me along the way. I know this has been done quite a few times, but different things work for different people, and I am hoping to approach this from an investment standpoint. I am sure I will get some hate for this with some of my opinions, but hopefully this helps one or two of you out. Anyways, if anything I stated is glaringly wrong I would love a message about it and am glad to have it removed or altered. I am going to do my best to not push anything in particular, but some recognizable names do come up as examples. I am coming to this with a business and investment viewpoint and a mediocre understanding of the tech. My background is entrepreneurial, which I feel is useful in the current state of the crypto market. I hope this gives you a brief introduction into some basic investment ideas and thought processes, and is generally a good guideline to help you get into trading! In no way will I be attempting to explain the technology, because I do not feel I have a worthy grasp on it, and the people in the Crypto Technology subreddit have much better idea.
Introduction to Cryptocurrency via Whitepaper
First thing I think is important for everyone to do is read this whitepaper from Raiblocks XRB (name change soon to nano possibly). I enjoyed this paper because it outlines basic tech in such a way that I think everyone will understand, even those of us who are not tech savvy. I feel it is important to understand the basic technology before sinking any money into it. I have tons of friends who ask me about getting into it and the first thing I have them do is read that paper. They always return with a fresher point of view and are usually more open to hearing my opinions and are willing to do more research on their own time. In no way am I attempting to push Raiblocks. I just think they have a great whitepaper that everyone could learn from.
Research
Once you have read that I want you to go look into 10 different cryptos/coins you have been hearing a lot about, and I mean seriously looking into them. The most likely reasons that you are here is that a lot of these currencies are increasing in value significantly and people are making large sums of money off of it. Most people have done their due diligence on maybe one or two of them, and scarily some people are sinking money into things based solely on articles or the blind belief that everything will just go up in value no matter what they buy. Currently there are over 1400 of these available for purchase across a variety of exchanges. I would be hard pressed to say that even 75% of these seriously have anything reliable to invest in, or really have any clear roadmap to try and increase in value. Because, let’s face it, most of you are here to make money. You want your assets to increase in value, yes? Then you need to invest in something that hopefully will expand and grow and have some sort of real world application or exciting technology. The days of putting money into crypto and getting by with a catchy name are gone. Certainly a great name can help you on social media (think Ripple XRP), but there is going to have to be more behind it than that.
So when you look at your first one I want you to go to a site such as this cryptocompare.com and look up your first coin. The search bar is in the top right. Once you select your crypto you will be met with some big numbers across the top. Assuming it is set the same for everyone it should be set to your coin compared to bitcoin (BIT). Select the white drop down bar and change it to USD, because this is what most people want to see. Please take a look around this page and try to click through everything and see what you understand. If everything on that page is foreign it is totally okay to look stuff up or ask someone. I would prefer people going into this with as much understanding as possible. Investing any money into something blindly is a dangerous thing to do and we should encourage people to ask questions. Not everyone may grasp something as good as you, but that does not mean you should knock them for it. Before moving onto the next part I would write down the name, the current market value, supply, and ticker in a notebook. Also write down the value it was at a month ago December 1st. A lot of movement has happened since then so I want people to understand just how much has occurred. Leave yourself some room to write some more stuff.
Once you feel you understand the layout I want you to go to your first crypto’s website. If you can’t find the website search for a whitepaper on whitepaper database. Look around the website. Does it look clean? Is it disarrayed? Does it look like something you would want to sink money into? If this was a piece of bread, is it moldy or fresh? Alright, it looks good. Search around. Check out what the people behind this product are putting up for people to read. If this was a person would they have presented themselves in a professional or unprofessional way? Read a couple of posts. Look for the whitepaper. Hopefully it is relatively easy to find. If not, go to the database linked above. Read through that. Try to understand as much of it as possible. They hopefully have a clearly defined goal or project they are working on. Hopefully they have details on what is being done to achieve these goals. Maybe they have some of the team members listed out with prior experience. It is a great sign to have something relating to the crypto world, and hopefully for more than a month’s time. If that all checks out and you are feeling more confident about this then I want you to do some social research. Check out what is being said about it. Are people just pushing there coin on Twitter or Facebook in an attempt to get it to increase in value, or are there serious technical or market news and articles on it? The latter is usually the sounder investment in my opinion.
Write down some things in your notebook. Partnerships, new tech they are working on, companies utilizing it, projects, etc. Anything you think may be important for when it comes to make a decision.
Once you have done this for the first one, I want you to do it for 9 more. Write down things that they have similar, different, market cap size comparisons, buzz, what is a scam, what is not. Some of this is gut feeling, and some of it is just plain facts.
Basic Things I Like to Look For. By No Means an All Encompassing List
I just wanted to point some things I look out for when I am searching for something to invest my money into. Remember this is real money we are talking about hear. Anyways on to some things I look for. The first one comes from a book I read called the Blue Ocean Strategy by Renee Mauborgne and W. Chan Kim. The basic premise is that tough competition is found where there are many people vying to be #1. Everyone wants to be the next bitcoin, but who is doing something to separate themselves from the crowd. Competition creates red water (think sharks fighting – it bloodies the water) and lack of competition (hopefully cause you are an innovator) is calm, clear, and beautiful blue ocean with tons of room to work in. Now granted this does not mean that a cruddy but different coin is good, and on the flipside that having competition is bad. This is just a good thing I like to consider when I separate the two. Now you also have to remember that crypto will be worldwide. So certainly there can be multiple competitors in different regions. The Amazon of the USA is the Alibaba of China. They both have certainly done well for themselves. But during busy times like this, the crypto boom, there will be a lot to sift through, and eventually some will fail and people will be forced to chalk it up as a loss.
Before we get any farther I want to remind everyone about something. I hear stories about people sinking all of the extra money they have into this, and that is not a good call. Only expend what you can survive without. Maybe you have a few thousand you were saving up for a new jet ski and think that investing is a better call. I say go for it. I own a jetski, and trust me you will not want it within in a couple of months. But, be careful. People lost a ton of money in the dot.com bubble. I am not saying it is going to happen, but you just never know, that’s why it is called a crash and a bubble. You do not know when it is going to happen.
The second thing I like to look for is pulled from Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap and Others Don’t by Jim Collins. This is a great read if you want something to throw by the toilet. Pretty basic to understand and has a lot of good things in it that I reference when I am looking at businesses. Some things I pulled from that are the phrase that, “good is the enemy of great”. Just because someone makes a good technology does not instantly make it valuable instantly. Getting people to use it and find value in it is what is important. Let’s face it, more and more people of wealth are getting into crypto. The things they expect a return on their money for will need to have something backing it, people working to spread it, continuance of invocation, possibly even pushing into other markets, etc. Standing still and hoping your technology will just work might not always be the answer anymore. When I say someone backing it, I mean are there people lining up to use it, and if not is there a great team working on development and attempting to get people to utilize it. Getting the right people on the bus (team) and in the right spots is another point Jim Collins makes. That means that the necessary skill is being put into the right positions to make this happen. Basically is the business guy able to go out and get the business side done well, and is the skilled developer able to focus on his/her job. People with a history are usually a good sign (people can be fraudulent about history so be careful). The last concept is about building something that will last. Apple would not have the backers and the market cap to match if people were afraid it was going to collapse within the next two months. Find something you think is shooting for the long term.
I will not divulge any further what I find important to look for. I think it is important for everyone to do their own research. This does not mean sit on the computer all night and wait for articles to pop up showing that your coin is going to skyrocket. Find something you have a hunch on. Pick it apart. Write down good and bad things. Hopefully the good outweighs the bad.
Bonus one cause it is on my mind lately - One more thing I like to look for is if the business/coin/crypto/token/whatever solves a real world problem and if that problem is prevalent enough that people would be willing to pay for it.
Portfolio
Just a couple remarks on a portfolio. Everyone has heard the saying, “don’t put all your eggs in one basket,” right? It basically translate to do not put all your money in one crypto. For many of you this will be your first time investing. Most people who have been long term investors (10+ years) do not just have common stock in their portfolio. They have ETFs, bonds, mutual funds, CDs, so on and so forth. Certain things in those portfolios are more risky, and certain things are less risky. Most of you are all banking on one market, the crypto market. I think you have to let that sink in. There will be corrections, stuff will lose value, stuff will maintain its value, and others will hopefully go sky high.
That being said, since we are focusing on one market, we should definitely try to diversify within that market segment. Do not just buy one thing because you think it is going to skyrocket one day. That may not happen anymore for all we know. Find a few that are focusing on tech, some with good partnerships, others that are more risky, and some that are less. But please do not put it in just one. I am sorry if the one you would have put all your money in hits $1,000 and you miss out on some bucks. But on the flipside is it never hits, you’re even and you miss out on making money in other things, or worse it crashes, and you lose all of your investment. Go for a bigger investment in one that you feel better about, and less that you feel are more long shots. Do not be afraid to shave some profits of if it comes to that. Do not just let it ride forever. Use the money you make if you need it. Transfer it into long term investments if it comes to it (who knows maybe 4-6 years down the line you can afford the down payment on a house). Please do not just put all your money into a $0.001 coin because you can get 2 million of them for $2,000.
Fiat (cash, USD) into Cryptocurrency
A lot of people are looking for ways to change USD into these exchanges. I personally have used a multitude of ways. But I feel that moving money into Coinbase, (do not purchase Bitcoin If you want to start trading immediately) and purchasing either Ethereum (ETH) or Litecoin (LTC) and then transfer it onto an exchange that is verified is the easiest way to begin. Please do two factor authentication and write down your codes and put them in a safe place. If you have a safety deposit box, put it there. Feel free to look up what a lot of other people are using for exchanges, but make sure it has the things you want on it. The correct coins, the right support staff, users, etc. I do not recommend leaving your stuff on the exchanges. I feel it is important to have a ledger. There are two popular brands – Trezor and Ledger Nano S, and I recommend both of them. Please make sure you purchase on their websites. I have heard horror stories about people losing everything because some other malicious party took sold them their stuff and had access to their ledger the whole time. Just be careful.
Day Trading
I am going to put this part in for people who think they will be good at day trading. While there will be some people good at it, the vast majority of us will lose money or shares in a business. That is no good. If you do not know what moving averages, relative strength, or depth charts are, among many other things, and are just going off candlesticks, step away. If you are willing to look into this and have money to lose, cause trust me you will not be batting .1000 let alone .500 in your first couple go rounds, then I say go for it. If you are okay with losing money learning, be my guest. But in my opinion it is best to leave it to the seasoned cryptotraders and the professionals.
Psychology of Crypto
I am not going to pretend to be a psych pro, but I do think it is important to know that money will and will not be lost over the course of a couple hours and a couple months. The inverse is true as well. However, you are making what most consider a risky investment. Something might lose before it gains, or gains and then loses. Heck maybe it loses and never regains. You can’t let this stuff affect you. It is not healthy. Stuff will go up and down constantly in this market. Some people are valuing it, some are pricing, and some are just shooting from the hip. The market will be all over the place and that is just how this crypto market is. But please, do not turn it into an unhealthy obsession. There will be a honeymoon phase where you can’t stop looking at it pricing. I know I look at it more then I should. Do not be afraid to step away from the computer. Go on a hike. Enjoy your friend’s company. Earning money and making sound investments is important, but do not let it take over your life. Find people in your friend group who are into it, and maintain a message group. It has helped me talk with some old friends again and they are always there for great advice when it comes to crypto. Two minds are better than one, but do not fall for Groupthink.
Final Remarks
Y’all, I am not going to lie. It is like the Wild West right now. This reminds me very much of the dot.com bubble, which scares me. I do not want that to be true of course, and I am trying not to start an argument, but this is money. Decide whether you are risk averse or not and plan your portfolio accordingly. I am sure I am missing some things, but I just wrote this since I had extra time to kill. Did this out of the kindness of my heart and not for monetary gain or to push anything. Again, if you feel anything is grossly misleading or incorrect feel free to send me a message and I will gladly throw an edit on there. I am just trying to help people who may not have an investment background start to consider things that might be indicative of a good investment. I am hoping to cut back on the amount of people who lose their money to mistakes and scams. I will likely expand on this in the future if there is some interest.
Edit: I should mention something about people who are looking to trade into altcoins, because I have seen people do this a ton. For example, a lot of people take the Ethereum route, which I agree is good. But you have to understand that the market is extremely volatile. Even on an hour to hour basis. Say you buy 1 ETH at 1,250, and two hours later it is at $1,110. But you are not paying attention to that price. You are hardcore watching Ripple waiting for it to drip below $1.93 from $2. Finally it gets below that price. Actually it hits $1.90! Score! Trade instantly. Bad idea. Yes you saved yourself $0.10 a share, but look at the big picture. You are down $140 on ETH. How much money did you actually save then? You have 584.21 ripple at 1.90 ($1,110 worth). But, if you had just executed at $2 when your ETH was worth $1250 you would have 625 shares. Do not get too focused on the price of what you are exchanging for. Also track what your current hold is sitting at. Not saying you should instantly excecute trades once that coin finally comes in. You should get the feel for the market.

What I am trying to do is trying to make this text a bit smaller a bit smaller so that it will fit in my header on muse and also trying to get rid of that little "Embedded by tradingview" thing at the bottom if at all possible.. I tried to adjust the code with changing the numbers in front of the px and I also tried just erasing the majority of the top part but none of that worked so hopefully you guys will know better than me..

Interview with Inventor about PoWH3D

Hello Internet,
So I am basically completely new to this whole crypto thing. I set out to learn a little about it and one project I stumbled upon seemed very interesting to me. After joining their discord, I got a chance to PM with someone on their dev team and do a little interview. I thought I would share it with everyone here, as I'm sure they have similar questions.
The project is called PoWH. It stands for Proof of Weak Hands. It grabbed my attention at first because it kinda has this whole meme-speak kinda feel, which made me think of Dogecoin. Reading on their page and watching the chats in their discord made me intrigued as to what it all means. They talk about simulated markets, pyramids, 3D currency, PoS and Masternodes, hybrid economic systems, self inflating and deflating currency, and all sorts of things I know nothing about.
I recommend looking at it for yourself and forming your own opinions. At the bottom of this interview I'll post my link to their site. Check it out. Without further adieu, here's my interview with a person from their team who goes by the discord handle "Inventor"

--1) What is a "3D Cryptocurrency"--

3D = 3 dimensions of economic product distribution, PoWH3D is a simulated economic model. All economies have an output, let's call this economic product. In our system, this product is distributed in three ways. That creates a hybrid model, and that's where the 3D part comes from.
So the first dimension or form of distribution follows the socialist economic model. We call this our passive income. In socialism, everyone in an economic system has invested to create the whole system, and so everyone deserves some of the economic product derived from that system. When a user buys P3D tokens, even if they never do anything with them, they receive passive income in the form of dividends.
The next layer or second dimension or second form of distribution follows a labor based economic model. In a labor based economy a person only receives a portion of economic product based on the amount of work they do. We call this our active income. So in PoWH3D, to earn active income someone performs the work of marketing, aka putting their referral link out there on the internet. Since they are performing work that's bringing new economic product into the system, they are directly paid a portion of that product.
The 3rd dimension or layer of distribution follows the capitalist economic model. Capitalism is the idea that you make or lose capital off of investments. We call this our investment income. P3D can be played just like any other cryptocurrency in a capitalist sense by trying to earn profit via buying low and selling high.
So I think it's really exciting being part of a project that's trying to bring something new to the cryptosphere. Right now virtually every cryptocurrency out there only has 1 dimension of play, the capitalist aspect. Which creates a system very dependent on hype and fud. Usually centralized around a single body, that currencies development team. Part of the whole purpose of crypto is to create decentralized systems, where the success of each one of those systems is in the hands of its users (decentralized). By adding in two extra dimensions we really incentivize growth based on the actions of users.

--2) What is P3D?--

So the name of our product in long hand is Proof of Weak Hands 3D. Short of that would be PoWH3D. Now in crypto everyone needs a ticker symbol. So P3D is our ticker symbol, or the name of our coin. Proof of Weak Hands 3D = the name of the project. P3D = name of coin.

--3) Why should I be interested in this?--

I think that really depends on the motivations of the individual. For the vast majority of people, I think it could act as stable and safe place to park their crypto. For others that are looking for a more aggressive return on investment this could be attractive due to the potential for active income. And last for investment speculators (capitalist) that realize the potential growth of this due to psychological factors created by our PoS/Masternode system, this would be a great thing to get in on. Lets elaborate for the mass majority first.
The speed of crypto moves insanely quick. A lot of people have lives and jobs and can't be bothered to check news on their crypto investments every 30 minutes. For people looking for a long term place to park their coins, this would be a great project. This is mostly due to the passive income earned. It's kind of like having a savings account. If you were saving up your fiat currency, you wouldn't keep it in a checking account that earns no interest. Instead you would stick it into a savings account, or CD, or something that offers a return. Although the earnings off this are not of a guaranteed or constant rate, but instead dependent on volume and activity, they are still likely to exceed what you would get from a traditional savings or CD account.
For the second category of people there is not a whole lot to elaborate on. The marketing system of referral links offers them, the ability to control their own income based on the amount of labor they do getting their referral link out there. I think what makes our system more interesting for marketers like that, is that they can withdraw their ETH earned at anytime. The pay is instant. The moment someone uses their reflink and buys in, they receive their referral bonus (ETH).
Our last group, the investors, so people who like to make their money off trading crypto (capitalist/traders) currently in the cryptosphere kind of live in a nightmare of extreme volatility. There are rapid swings up and down, and the market is open 24/7. This makes something like taking a shower, eating dinner, or spending time with your family, let alone sleeping for 6-10 hours, kind of a nightmare cause your worried about your crypto holdings. Also they trade on exchanges where price is controlled by an order book. Such a system is very easy for whales (very rich people) or group market psychology, to manipulate with buy and sell walls. Our system mechanics change all this, and I think capitalist (traders) would find our it attractive because our price is controlled by an algorithm, making planning entry and exit of a position more predictable.
Any traders worst nightmare is buying at an All Time High (ATH) and then experiencing a crash afterwards. Although that could happen in our system, instead of being stuck holding bags (holding coins that are no longer worth what you paid for them), until a new ATH is attained, a person playing this from the trader aspect could shift focus to marketing. This would allow them to receive active income to offset/recoup losses from the crash. It also could help the currency value grow back up to or above the ATH they entered their position in. So for traders, this has a built in security blanket, in that fashion.
Ultimately I will just close this part by reminding people that this is just a simulated economic model. To be played as a game. There is no promise that your going to earn off this. It's a system where, yes, that is possible, but it all depends on how you play it. Like any closed loop economic model, some players win, and some players lose. This is just more attractive than other models, because it gives you more ways to play.

--4) Why not just start with Bitcoin or another established cryptocurrency?--

2017 and before were the years of Bitcoin. All the huge gains to made off BTC have likely already happened. The world media and global consensus, based on analysis of cryptocurrency trends, have decided that 2018 is "The Year of The Altcoin" (so coins other than Bitcoin). So these are the trends and patterns that everyone knows about. In the back channels of the internet are places where technology is being developed that will be the trends of the future. In many of those back channels people believe that 2019 will be the year of the "Smart Contract" and the rise of Crypto Gaming products governed by smart contract. PoWH3D is a smart contract.

--5) Is this friendly to new investors with zero crypto experience and experienced alike?--

So for people with absolutely zero crypto experience, this will be a lot easier than most exchanges, or other ways of getting into crypto. By that I mean that the technical knowledge that someone needs to learn to interact with our system is very low. Basically they just have to install metamask and visit our website (http://bit.ly/2I0gFif). Our UI/front end (website) design, is pretty clean, straightforward and simple. We wanted it to be easy for people to interact with. For experienced players in the crypto sphere, this is a breeze.

--6) What do you need to participate in this? What's it cost?--

Step 1) You'll need Ethereum (ETH), which you can get through popular services like CoinBase (http://goo.gl/cb5NZe). Currently we are working on building a system to add other types of crypto you could use though.
Step 2) Install the MetaMask Plugin for your browser, which can be done on a computer or mobile device. (https://www.reddit.com/PoWHCoin/comments/80lgd6/buyselltradecheck_your_powh_coin_on_your_phone/)
Step 3) Visit our page> click "exchange"> and click buy. (http://bit.ly/2I0gFif)
As far as cost? As much or as little as someone wants to put into it. There are no minimums or maximums.

--7) How is this profitable? How does this work?--

Profit comes from the Proof of Weak Hands concept. And from fees the system charges to use it. When a user buys into the system, a 10% fee is taken and distributed to all other players who are holding P3D coin. There is also a fee on trades and sells, all of this constitutes volume (activity). So any amount of volume will generate a distribution of the fees to holders. If a player holds until either (A) the price goes up to where they can sell at a profit, or (B) they have earned enough passive or active dividends, to have generated a profit, then they "win". We call this having "Strong Hands". Where as having "Weak Hands" would be someone who enters and exits the system at a loss. So strong hands profit from weak hand's loss. In the simplest form, value is only being exchanged from one hand to another, depending on how a player plays.

--8) How do I know this isn't a scam?--

Our system is governed by Smart Contract. For people new to crypto, a smart contract is a piece of programming code that is uploaded to the blockchain. Once uploaded it can never be modified or destroyed. We chose to publish our code open source, so that it is 100% transparent. So for as long as computers, electricity, and the blockchain exist, PoWH3D will exist. And the rules that govern it (the smart contract) can never be changed. Our smart contract has been audited and peer reviewed to ensure that there are no code errors, logic flow errors, underflow or overflow exploits, exit scams, pre-mines, self destruct codes, or administrator back doors. Being opens source, anyone can read the code, and verify all this for themselves.
Although this product is young, there have already been people who have copied our code and website, with modifications that make those variants a scam, and published them elsewhere. To try and trick people. That is something that is obviously outside our control. That said, we always do everything within our power, to keep everyone informed about scams that try to look like us. I recommend joining our discord server to keep up to date with that stuff. (https://discord.gg/3FQ3ZBP). Since I have this opportunity here, I want to say, do not use the websites powhcoin dot com, or powh3d dot com. Those are not us. But lookalike scams. Our official website is powh dot io. I recommend only interacting with the smart contract through that site, or better yet, learning how to directly interact via the blockchain through tools like metamask. This would ensure that you are always interacting with the right smart contract.

--9) So how can this cryptocurrency be used?--

As covered in question number 3, it’s mostly a buy/sell/trade/hold type of use case at the moment. However part of this projects philosophy and system encourages autonomous community based development. Which means that other dapps (cryptocurrency based applications and software) can build systems that utilize this. Sure, that's true for almost any crypto. Nothing new there. It's a promise that experienced crypto players hear from every ICO out there. But what makes our product different, is the fact that usage/volume generates profit for everyone. Effectively this system creates community based ownership of ALL products built upon it. I think that is going to be a huge marketing tool for developers moving into the future.
I had a lot more typed up on this that I wanted to say, but due to the competitive nature and speed at which the crypto sphere evolves, I'm not going to say too much more. There's already a few exciting projects along those lines in the works. Albeit in the small scale experimental phase.

--10) As this coin gains popularity, what kind of outlook are you expecting your users to see?--

If you mean a price target, in the smart contract world, we don't use traditional price targets. A normal price target you would talk about a price per coin at a certain point in the future. In smart contracts, we instead talk about the total amount put into the smart contact. With our product, neither of these really matter. Instead it's all about volume. Like I started this interview with, this product is a simulated market and hybrid economic system. It purpose is distribution of economic product. That distribution is instantaneous, with any type of transaction (buy/sell/trade). So the focus for measure of success is all about volume. The more active the economic system, the more successful it is. Players who hold P3D coin, generally shouldn't care wither it's going up or down, but more care about the volume.
But if you want an estimate about total amount of ETH in the contract, say in 1 month, 6 months, or 12 months, I honestly don't know. This is uncharted territory here. Nothing like this has been created before. So trying to guess it's popularity, is unpredictable. My focus is more on developing this product into something with further use cases. So I take the standpoint of make a quality product/system, and let it speak for itself. I would 100% be willing to trade my house for ETH, and if anyone takes me up on that offer, I would be putting a large chunk of that into buying P3D, if that says anything about my personal outlook. Remember though, that rule number 1 in crypto, is never put in more than you can afford to lose.

--11) Can I be as risky or safe with this, and still profit?--

Any typical investment into crypto is a risk due to volatility of the whole cryptosphere. It’s all grey area. All unknowns. With our hybrid economic model, leverage against risk is built into the system. For example, say you bought 100 P3D coins for 0.02 ETH a piece. And then the price dropped shortly afterwards to just 0.01 ETH a piece. Because of our fee and dividend distribution you would of earned some returns off of the volume that lead to that price drop. If you continue to hold (have strong hands) even if the price per coin stays hovering around the 0.01 ETH point, you will keep earning passive dividends off of the volume. Over a long enough period of holding, this would produce a ROI, even without any labor or effort on your behalf. But say that's not quick enough for you. And you want to expedite the actualization of ROI, you could use your referral link to increase your dividend earnings. This puts more control in your hands of getting to a break even or profit point. Even after experiencing a large crash.
In one dimensional crypto currencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple, etc... if you bought at 0.02 ETH per coin, and it dropped per 0.01 ETH per coin value and stayed there, you are just fucked. The only entities that are making money off of that situation, are the exchanges, which make their profit off of volume. With our product, its like you own the exchange. So your leveraging the risk with your ownership in the system, and mostly only care about volume. Like I said though. Rule number one in crypto is never put in what you can't afford to lose. And ultimately, I cannot emphasize enough to your readers, that our system we have built is intended as an experiment. A game. A test of a hybrid economic model, and alternative market system. It's an experiment that seeks to study what would happen if we had a self inflating/deflating currency, what would the market effects be of getting rid of the order book trading system, and replaced it with one where price is based on volume, and an experiment of how to hybridize the distribution of economic product in a way that offers multiple layers of incentive and multiple modes of play. It asks the question of, can we build a system that solves the real world's problems related to these aspects of our global economic system. And can we do it with mechanics that in their own nature, incentivise perpetual sustainability and continuous autonomous community development. It's not intended to be looked at as an investment. But as an experiment or a game. This is why our page is made up of meme-speak and treats it like a meme-coin. Do with it what you will. But do so at your own risk and always do your own research.
Well, internet, that's all we had time for, and is already a lot to digest. If this makes you as intrigued about the PoWH3D project like it has me, then please use my reflink below as a "thanks" for the time I put into writing this up. (autonomous community development in action?). https://powh.io/?masternode=0xe10d60f7758045c6dfbca629eafa003fa104b112

Does anyone send ETH to them ?

Arcade Token ($ARCD) sale is now live. Pre-sale rate ends tomorrow Nov 30 @ 11:59pm PST.
Hello folks, last update before our public token sale "officially" begins December 1st. The announcement post with full details goes live early on December 1st. As one of our earliest mailing list subscribers, we wanted to give you one last chance to participate in our Arcade Token pre-sale if you haven't already.
Last night we deployed our live token sale contract to the Ethereum mainnet. It's tested and works great. You can see initial transactions here. Video of the deployment here. Code on GitHub here and verified on Etherscan here. Blog post introducing the token economics is here.
The pre-sale ratio is 285,000 Arcade Tokens per 1 ETH. Compare to 200,000 for the public sale.
As we also said on Twitter here, we have decided out of an abundance of caution to switch the planned ticker symbol of the Arcade Token from ATX to ARCD. There is a barely-used coin called Artex ($ATX) that may cause issues with some exchanges with strict policies about ensuring no conflicts in ticker symbols. We have selected the ARCD symbol, which is unused by any other crypto project.
You have one last opportunity for pre-sale rates, expiring November 30th at 11:59pm PST:
Make sure your wallet can handle ERC-20 tokens (NOT Coinbase or similar exchange). We recommend MyEtherWallet or MetaMask.
Any ETH you send to our token sale address (again, ONLY from a wallet like MEW or MetaMask that supports ERC-20 tokens), you will receive Arcade Tokens immediately to the same address you sent from.
Any transactions received to the sale address (0x7ef8873220958Ea400d505a9C92D6ae24F34D55E) before November 30 at 11:59pm PT will receive Arcade Tokens at the pre-sale rate. TOKEN SALE ADDRESS: 0x7ef8873220958ea400d505a9c92d6ae24f34d55e From the smart contract you will automatically receive tokens at a ratio of 200,000 Arcade Tokens per 1 ETH to the same address you sent the ETH from.
Separately we will manually transfer you this week an additional 85,000 Arcade Tokens per 1 ETH, to bring you to the pre-sale rate of 285,000 Arcade Tokens per ETH. (For simplicity's sake, the smart contract has one rate for the entire sale.)
If you do not send your transaction before the pre-sale cutoff time, you will only receive the public (non-presale) rate of 200K tokens per 1 ETH.
To see the balance of your Arcade Tokens, just add to your wallet the token address (not the above sale address) 0xb581e3a7db80fbaa821ab39342e9cbfd2ce33c23, symbol ARCD, and 18 decimals, and you will see the ARCD in your account. (Screenshot below of ARCD in my MetaMask wallet -- the first live test transaction.)
I hope all that is clear. If anything is unclear, you can post any questions in our global community Facebook group Arcade City Square, or just wait until our new blog post and token sale webpage go live on Friday, as those will include more detailed instructions.
Best regards,
Chris
P.S. Check out what early Bitcoin investor and hedge fund legend Michael Novogratz said at yesterday's Consensus: Invest conference about how to value a decentralized ridesharing token.
P.P.S. We have begun organizing our Arcade City "Builders" in a new invite-only Slack channel. If you want to join, respond to this email for an invitation. Please tell us your background with Arcade City and how you can contribute to building Arcade City in the future.

A helpful Excel spreadsheet to help automate and monitor your assets - including historical metrics on profitability and asset holdings

Well... I put this together because it was fun (excel? fun?), but I figured I may as well share what I got- someone else out there might have some ideas to make it better, or might find it useful. It's a macro enabled excel spreadsheet which is understandably sketchy AF, so I included a 'dumb' .xlsx version and the actual macro in txt format if you're not comfortable downloading the macro version (I wouldn't blame you!)
Also: as you can see I'm pretty new and I bought a bunch during the bubble this Decembeearly January. I also may have picked some longer-term holds than I was expecting... Looks like it'll be a while before I recoup my capital investments, help a dude out with some BTC or ETH if you think this is useful (or if you're just feeling charitable)
Send me some BTC? 16W8XG2hXAmL1HJTzs5wWWoG8AUkyabdbT
Send me some ETH? 0x48dAbF6c5B02C4f9E09E2f5B95bb231C7e9f6049
DOWNLOAD HERE! https://www.dropbox.com/sh/68se9vl6dujcf3x/AADk6NlfkDdR-6WO1WeBl4QSa?dl=0
Let me know if you have any questions- I included instructions in the document on how to interact with it also see below:
Thanks for the great community, and I look forward to the rest of the year!
Also: If you just wanna make fun of my stupid investments, I fully deserve it. :)
Instructions (not great documentation, sorry)
WARNINGS
Purchases
  1. Any time you buy using Fiat currency you should add the purchase to the Purchases tab
  2. I tend to use coinbase/gdax to purchase, so I simply insert the date, the amount paid, the # of coin I got, and the fees paid, etc.
  3. Fiat purchase total will be flooded to the Assets tab as the capital investment
Adding a new Coin API call
  1. In Excel use the Data tab to add a new API call (from web)
  2. I'm just using CoinMarketCap until a better API comes up… use the documentation at https://coinmarketcap.com/api/
  3. Use the name for your new coin - ex: https://api.coinmarketcap.com/v1/tickeEthereum
  4. Here's the resource I used to figure it out
  5. It will create a new tab automatically but I thought that was annoying- copy the content of the new sheet into the "Data" tab (paste at the bottom)
  6. Delete the newly created sheet and the existing connection for it sheet…
  7. Rename the new data connection from "Ethereum(2)" to "Ethereum" if you want.
Add the Coin to Assets
  1. I have it split up by exchange for tracking where my assets are, where I bought them etc… not really necessary
  2. Add the new exchange, or simply use the TOTALS at the very top and get rid of the references to the exchanges
  3. Binance really screwed me with dust (I get it… buy BNB- bleh)… so I list those fractions as nLiq (non Liquid assets) so it's not counted in my actual return
  4. Reference the Data sheet for the BTC amount and the USD amount. Carry and calculations over. The IF logic was to handle zero values so it was easier to read.
  5. You'll probably need to add new coins to the TOTALS section- simply add a new record, name it, and reference the exchange below (or skip the exchange stuff and just list Totals) 5a. NOTE: The Bitcoin and Eth totals are summed from each exchange… I tend to use this as a worksheet for where I want to allocate resources too.
IMPORTANT:
  1. You'll need to manually add your new coins to the Historic Data sheet as a new column, it should be the same column order as the row order in the Assets TOTAL section WARNING: DO NOT SORT ANY TABLE or it'll screw up the Historic Data and macro stuff (see below)
Fees
  1. I got kind of lazy, and went with Bitcoin as the fee structure for each exchange… about .001 BTC for withdrawing funds back to a Fiat exchange.
  2. this is translated into USD fees and added up, you'll see the total fees in the TOTALS section at top
Asset Graphs
They should update automatically, but you might need to make sure they follow newly added rows in the tables.
Profits
  1. These are calculated for every trade and takes an average based on the existing price… 1a. It's a little janky, because if you buy some with BTC and some with ETH you can find the % away from each, but you have to adjust the formulas for each row accordingly
  2. the Average is taken for the Delta of each transaction from the current BTC or ETH price
  3. This data is compiled in the Historic Data sheet
Historic Stuff
On the Historical Assets tab there's a graph and it's derived from Historic Data sheet On the Historical Assets tab you'll see a button that says Start Macro and End Macro…
On the Historical Profit tab there's a graph which is derived from the Histroric Data sheet The Historic Data sheet is populated by a macro which basically just copies a bunch of stuff.
Macro does the following: (READ THE CODE COMMENTS)
  1. Refresh the data without locking up the application
  2. Copies the Liquid BTC column from the TOTALS table
  3. Pastes the current # of BTC for each coin in the next row of Historic Data sheet
  4. Get the Profit Analysis data and pastes it to a new row in its section of Historic Data sheet
  5. Waits 30 minutes (1800 seconds)
  6. Repeat
  7. ???
  8. Profit

Hi can anyone help me with this please?

SO I have been trying to add this ticker at the htop of my website that i am creating using adobe Muse, but for some reason when I upload it it is way to thick and makes it to where yoou can barely se my other header menu, and theres this annoying liittle "Created by Tradingview" thing that appearsa t the bottom, that I also dont want there..
I think that the size issue can be sorted and fixed by me adjusting the size of the text in it. However, when I went to change the numbers in front of the px in the code listed below it did nothing to the widget inside my website, and also I couldnt find or figure out whre it had this little "Embedded by Tradingview" thing so I can erase it and take it out..

Which Github repo is the default repo, the Bitcoin software that has the BTC ticker on exchanges with 50+ billion?

According to the red dots it looks like 92.1% of blocks mined support Segwit2x. This is a super majority of miners running the btc1 repo software or another repo that is compatible with Segwit2x.
My confusion on the chart is how a block is both yellow (Core / Non-EC) and also have a red dot on the block? Miners running Core software cannot also be running Segwit2x software. I am sure both subs would agree that Core will never merge the 2x part of Segwit2x, even going so far as to commit code that will reject all Segwit2x nodes early.
The posters over in the other sub supporting the Core repo seem highly confident they will retain the BTC ticker on exchanges. I shouldn't even say confident, they are absolutely sure Core will always be the BTC tickedefault repo.
Watching this war unfold over the years I see Bitcoin coming down to this final battle - which repo is the BTC ticker on the exchanges with 50+ billion behind it?
If 1 hash = 1 vote the answer is clear from the blocks (assuming the 92.1% is accurate). However, the other sub talks about the "economic majority" and the "users". I do not believe the users can be measured by anything other than coin holdings. A guy with .1 BTC should not have the same vote as anyone with major skin in the game. I know "the users" in the other sub are defined as everyone left in that sub from The Purge creating an echo chamber, who falsely believe they represent 99% of Bitcoin users.
If the owner of the BTC ticker came down to mined blocks signaling vs an impossible measurement of who the users are, the road would be unclear. However, I noticed of the 58 companies that signed the NYA, most are NOT miners, they are wallets, exchanges and service providers (economic majority). Are we all to believe that when BTC upgrades to 2mb, Coinbase, GBTC, Ledger, ShapeShift, Jaxx and all the other major players in the NYA are going to transact the BTC ticker as the longest chain, Segwit2x, but it is not Bitcoin because some posters at the other subs have a philosophical difference to the upgrade?
Are we to believe that Segwit2x will not have 75% miner support and activate on judgement day?
Is btc1 already the default repo?

    1. Great analysis by singularity and jessquit on how anti-btc trolls shifted: "suddenly last year they all disappeared, and a new type of bitcoin user appeared who were fully in support of bitcoin but they just so happened to support every single thing Blockstream and its employees said and did." (102 points, 50 comments)
    2. Don't fall for EDA Dragons Den FUD. EDA is a powerful weapon that could kill off or cripple the segwit chain for good. Legacy coin has no EDA crash barrier as this article explains. This is why small blockers use FUD us to disarm the EDA (78 points, 118 comments)
    3. Roger Ver CEO of bitcoin.com says that from his point of view the segwit2x split just gives him more coins to sell for the Bitcoin Cash version which he thinks is the more useful Bitcoin @3min41s mark (71 points, 33 comments)
    4. Proof the new Dragons Den plan could be to try to split BCC with an EDA change. Mrhodl is confirmed Dragons Den, and Cobra Bitcoin is the leader of bitcoin.org which is making enemy lists for big block supporting businesses. (70 points, 47 comments)
    5. Right now segwit2x (BT2) is trading for $1143 and segwit1x (BT1) is $3070 on Bitfinex futures markets. Even with not the greatest terms, you would expect 2x to be much higher. I believe this bodes well for BCC. (61 points, 112 comments)
    6. The other day people were suggesting we do an EDA change before the November 2x fork. Here is why I think that is a terrible idea, and why we should only consider EDA change AFTER the 2x fork. (58 points, 40 comments)
    7. "Nick, Adam and others saw the flaw in the system being that they could not ensure one vote one person.. The flaw in that reasoning is assuming that one vote one person was ever a goal. Miners act economically not altruistically." (57 points, 14 comments)
    8. Original chain is now only 4.8% more profitable than Bitcoin Cash chain after the most recent EDA adjustment on BCC. Very normal blocktimes. Where is the EDA dragons den FUD now? (53 points, 33 comments)

    1. Bitfinex announcement about issuing BT1 & BT2 "Chain Split Tokens" to allow Futures trading. (BT1 = Segwit1x; BT2 = Segwit2x) (172 points, 173 comments)
    2. By proving that it can be done (getting rid of Core) this will set a HUUGE precedent and milestone that dev teams and even outright censorship cannot overtake Bitcoin. That will be an extremely bullish occasionfor all crypto. (149 points, 84 comments)
    3. Bitfinex is going to call Segwit2x coins "B2X" and let Core chain retain "BTC" ticker symbol. Bitfinex is therefore calling Segwit2x an altcoin and Core the "real chain". (138 points, 70 comments)
    4. The goal of all the forks appears to be to dilute investment in the true forks: Bitcoin Cash and Segwit2x. A sort of Scorched Earth approach by Blockstream. They are going to try to tear down Bitcoin as they get removed. (35 points, 11 comments)
    5. Blockstream be like (10 points, 11 comments)
    6. In light of all these upcoming forks, we need a site where you can put in a BTC address and it checks ALL the forks and says which chains still have a balance for that address. This way you can split your coins and send coins carefully. (6 points, 6 comments)

    3. According to Crooked Greg, Jeff merging opt-in replay protection is "alarming", because it must mean Jeff wants to blacklist people's addresses too. Core devs keep lying and manipulating to stir more drama and further the split in the community. Disgusting! (75 points, 16 comments)
