By Medha Singh and Lisa Pauline Mattackal - As bitcoin heads into 2022, a growing cohort of long-term investors is doubling down on its stashes of the cryptocurrency, hoping a December dip was merely a festive blip. Some industry watchers point to the underlying stability of such long-term investments as potentially promising indicators for the capricious cryptocurrency. Since last July, for example, the amount of bitcoin held in digital wallets with no outflows for more than five months has been steadily increasing, according to digital currency brokerage Genesis Trading. In addition, the amount of the bitcoin held in "illiquid" wallets - which spend less than quarter of their inflows - is also rising, meaning fewer coin are being actively traded, it added, citing wallet data across several exchanges. "The number of bitcoins that haven't moved in over a year has been climbing since July," said Noelle Acheson, head of market insights at Genesis Trading. "That's pretty staggering." Man...

The Eden governance protocol hit the ground running. After just one official election, arguably more has been done for EOS within the past couple of months than over the past couple of years. ClarionOS is designed to complement the EdenOS protocol. Together they form a solid foundation that’ll allow the mainnet to reach its full potential. What to Expect in EOS 3.0? How exactly will the Clarion team help propel EOS? A communication protocol is ingrained into its early development. Other key ideas and applications pertain to things like insurance and infrastructure. What promises to ignite a spark throughout the community is the advent of DAC tokens. Details of a plan for community/company tokens was introduced by Dan Larimer just days ago. The EOS developer community has blossomed since Clarion, Eden, and the EOS Network foundation joined the mainnet. Together they are instituting protocols, initiatives, and resolving issues dating back to the earliest days of the mainnet. The communi...

However, there is an even smaller unit in the Bitcoin system that is already used in the Lightning Network for example. This is the Millisatoshi (MSAT) which represents one-thousandth of a Satoshi. So we have the following equivalences: 1 SAT = 1000 MSAT 1 SAT = 0.00000001 BTC 1 MSAT = 0.00000000001 BTC 4. The disappearance of Satoshi Nakamoto is linked to the CIA The title of this little-known fact in the history of Bitcoin is deliberately catchy, I must admit. Nevertheless, there is an indirect reason linked to the CIA that could explain the disappearance of Satoshi Nakamoto. Gavin Andresen was one of the first developers of the Bitcoin blockchain, along with Satoshi Nakamoto, and was received by the CIA in 2010. The CIA wanted to question him about Bitcoin. Soon after this event Satoshi Nakamoto vanished into thin air and was never heard from again. Was it the fear of being interrogated by the CIA that led him to disappear? We will never know, but many people still believe in this...

Did you buy bitcoin above $60,000? No worries. In a few years—possibly a few weeks—you will feel the same way about buying at $60,000 as others feel about buying at $10,000.  This may not make sense now, with gloom surrounding you and fear gripping the market, but it will become more clear the longer you stay in this market. As investment, the circumstances rarely change when the price does. For the traders who dominate social media, the price means everything. They’re just trying to catch swings in momentum. They may say they care about bitcoin, but they really only care about much of their government’s money they can make off of it. For people like you and me, opportunity matters far more. Are you getting your money into the market before it goes up or after? If you wait too long, you will miss an opportunity to get the best value for your investment. Once the market starts to run, you might find it hard to catch up. Small consolation to anybody who’s down 20% from following my plan...
With everyone still digesting their Turkey, it was a low key Chief Delegates meeting as they prepare for a busy 2022.
LONDON - Bitcoin fell over 5% on Monday to its lowest in over five months, tumbling under the $40,000 level. The largest cryptocurrency fell as far as $39,558, its lowest since Aug. 5. It was last down 4.7%, more than 40% below a record high of $69,000 hit in November.   (Reporting by Tom Wilson; Editing by Saikat Chatterjee)...
Interoperability between chains may change the way blockchain applications interact with each other and may solve the issue of UX needing extensive learning to even use blockchain tech. When we see single wallets, with simple on-boarding of fiat currencies where you can easily spend your currency to access products that have a meaningful impact on life; when NFT’s are retail ready to have function and a use case that doesn’t require gamification and manipulation of humans’ base instincts to encourage people to participate; when the clever narratives are no longer necessary, and the product speaks for itself; when user interfaces deliver seamless user experiences and on-boarding is as simple as a click of a button and when the security is strong enough to gain the average punters trust. Then, and only then, will blockchain technology move into the mainstream. Please feel free to join the conversation by leaving a comment. Robust discussion is the key to positive momentum so please shar...
Hey everyone! Thanks for the tremendous feedback on my Christmas Special :} I hope everyone got a chance to participate in the NFT giveaway too (in association with Finny & CryptoWriter), but if not, don’t fret - I’ll be running another one soon! I also hope everyone had a much-needed rest over the holidays & New Years, and have set some great resolutions for yourselves for 2022. Lots of people dip on resolutions these days, saying “Don’t set resolutions on New Years. They never work.” Most of the time, people set very lofty goals, and only fail in the breaking down of those goals into to their smaller more-attainable pieces. It’s best to use a month-to-month system of goal-setting which allows you to check-in with yourself on smaller goals that are more easily attainable week-to-week so you can keep yourself perpetually motivated. I always set yearly goals too though, even if I fall short, and usually outline my year’s plan heavily in the time surrounding NYE weekend. I’ve al...
The other obvious advantage of Bitcoin is that it has no leader. No one’s going to ask you why you’re making a Bitcoin transaction with Nathan. No one will require justification or your transaction will be censored. By making Bitcoin your own bank, you have at your disposal a fast, secure, low fees, and censorship-resistant tool. Your Bitcoin can never be confiscated as long as you take care to keep your private keys safe. With Bitcoin, you are in complete control. For this reason, Bitcoiners often say that Bitcoin gives power to the people. Final Thoughts Bitcoin works in a much simpler way because it does not require any middlemen that will charge you transaction fees. With its decentralized network, you have the near guarantee that the Bitcoin network is always running. Bitcoin’s uptime of 99.98% since its inception is there to prove that. Regardless of the time of day, and the day of the week, you will be able to use the Bitcoin network to make transactions. Bitcoin is therefore i...

At the end of the year, at Christmas time, it seems that the Financial Times needed content. In those moments when all journalists want to take their vacations, the Financial Times turns to guest writers. What better way to create a buzz than to write an article falsely attacking Bitcoin. This is what was done on December 22, 2021. Here is the title of this Financial Times article: “Why Bitcoin is worse than a Madoff-style Ponzi scheme”. A clickbait headline that has achieved its goal: to make some noise. If you want to make noise, nothing is better than falsely attacking Bitcoin with arguments that have been proven wrong several times in the past. This is the case with this attack on Bitcoin as a Ponzi scheme. In the article, the guest writer, Robert McCauley, goes even further by saying that Bitcoin is worse than a Ponzi scheme. Indeed, since Bitcoin has no leader, there is no one to sue to harm Bitcoin. Bravo Robert, you have understood the whole point of Bitcoin: a monetary system...
