Why TRON is Up When Bitcoin is Down

As we look across the broader crypto market today there is no shortage of red - BTC is down 6%, LTC is down 10%, along with many others following suit. But there is one lonely token in the top ten on coinmarketcap.com that is green today and it’s up almost 10%! I’ll give you one guess what it is…

For those of you not following Tron, here are a few reasons why it’s one of the only tokens up today:

There is no doubt the Tron community is going nuts for the Testnet launch tomorrow, but what if there is more to it than that? Maybe it’s the Rounders movie poster look of the Periscope graphic, maybe it’s Justin’s boyish good looks, I don’t know!

What do you think? Is the hype and price jump legit?

How to Profit in a Sideways Market

Intro

Over the past few months, we have written about various investing strategies - some that protect your downside - and others that take advantage of catalysts. The two mentioned can be used together and tend to do much better in a bullish market. But what do you do when the market is trading sideways like it currently is? You could make use of a bot and scalp multiple times per day, you could try and time a spike based on volume, or you could utilize a masternode.

I have mentioned masternodes before in a previous article and on a podcast episode, both times promising to show you how to set one up. I have been on a mission to setup my own masternode since I first wrote about it and I’m here to tell you that I found a solution that makes the installation of a masternode REALLY easy.

GINcoin

I was browsing through my Twitter feed as I do every day and I came across GINcoin. I can’t remember why it caught my eye but as I look at their Twitter profile banner I think I know what it may have been - “EASY MASTERNODE SETUP”.

Before GINcoin came along, the standard requirements were:

  1. Required # of coins as collateral
  2. A computer to run the wallet
  3. VPS (Virtual Private Server)
  4. Unique IP address
  5. Ability to enter prompts into the Command Line

The last item on the list is typically the biggest challenge for those attempting to setup a masternode and that is precisely where GINcoin comes into play. All you have to do is send them approximately $12 per month in BTC or BCH (GINcoin coming soon) and they take care of the VPS, Unique IP address, and Command Line Prompts.

On their Discord they have a really helpful installation video. 

Keep in Mind

As you can see it’s as simple as following their instructions. While the GINcoin product is great, you will need some patience because there are a few steps that require a few minutes of waiting.

The first struggle I encountered before approaching the GINcoin installation process was finding a token, more specifically the token’s wallet, that was built for a Mac. Most token wallets are built for Windows machines. The GINcoin platform actually has many masternodes available that have wallets compatible with a Mac.

Many of the masternodes available on the platform are smaller projects with low volume on exchanges that you’re probably not already using. I have installed 5 masternodes using GINcoin so far and most of the tokens have been available on https://graviex.net/. Since the volume is low, you will need to break up those buy orders so that the order gets filled.

The last aspect of the installation that may come as a surprise is that even though the GINcoin platform is a simple step-by-step process, the transaction confirmations still take the same time as they normally would. For example, right now I am setting up another GINcoin masternode and most of the process I completed within 5 mins. Then, I get to the collateral transaction confirmation step and it is has been over 20 minutes so far.

Summary

All in all, I think what they’ve done here is great. While everyone is speculating on when BTC will be above $20k, I’m steadily collecting payments to my wallet all while I’m out at a bar, or watching TV. BTC will eventually climb back up to higher numbers but while it’s trading sideways, these masternodes are paying the bills.

If you’re unsure about investing in something not widely known like BTC, ETH, LTC, etc, there are cheap, low risk options. At the moment you can get a LuckyBit masternode for about $150. While the setup is easy, you may find that you have questions and that’s okay! They’re really helpful in Discord.

BitCab header image

BitCab - Uber 2.0?

Intro

In the ridesharing marketplace there are only two names you think of: Uber and Lyft.

Recently there has only been one - Uber - due to a fatality in Arizona. Despite the plethora of press around ridesharing companies, there is a void when it comes to projects using the blockchain in that space. When I think of ridesharing the first thing that pops into my head is:

Anyone remember Total Recall? It’s a classic Sci-Fi about a construction worker (Arnold Schwarzenegger) that has a memory implant installed so that he can visit Mars and experience that world without actually traveling there. I’m sure this will become a reality in the future and I’m certain it will be using the blockchain in some way, but I digress.

The blockchain as a model is touching everything these days and ridesharing is not excluded.

Meet BitCab.

What is BitCab?

The short and sweet version from their website isBitCab is Uber 2.0 for the blockchain age, with stronger network effects and loyalty enabled by a superior platform ecosystem, gamification and tokenized technological model”. What this means is that you as the consumer will have a blockchain alternative to Uber that offers incentives, cheaper rates, and better security for your information. As a driver for BitCab you will be paid more because there isn’t a middleman taking a larger cut of the transaction.

Team

As with any lofty goal like replacing Uber or Lyft, you need an incredible team to pull it off in every aspect: from building a community to gamification within the platform. It turns out the team for BitCab is legit. What’s interesting as I look on the team page is that there aren’t any titles for each team member. Typically you’ll see “CEO”, “Advisor”, etc. They do have a section for TEAM and ADVISORS, but that’s as specific as it gets.

Anyways, the first person I see is Arkadiy Vershebenyuk, the former Country General Manager for Uber in the Ukraine. While in this role he “Set up the company structure and processes, hired and trained the team that was recognized as the most efficient on trips / headcount basis in the region.” Sounds like a solid guy to spearhead an operation like BitCab, right?

There are many other team members with vast experience in their respective specialties, including PhD candidates in Computer Science and Economics.

Investment

This token is not yet available on the marketplace. In fact, information regarding the ICO is limited. Here’s what I was able to gather:

  • In the pre-ICO 50 million tokens will be offered at a 50% discounted price of $0.01 per token
  • In the ICO 500 million tokens will be offered at the price of $0.02 per token
  • 48 million tokens (6% of total amount) will be reserved for airdrop activities

Summary

While many details are unknown, including the ICO dates, we do know that this ICO will be on the Syscoin blockchain. As a SYS hodler, you will receive a portion of those airdropped tokens. Easy money! For more details on why BitCab chose Syscoin, check out this Medium post. If you are actually reading this and have gotten this far, leave your Ethereum address in the comments below and we will give a few lucky winners some free crypto for the next 24hrs!

Nebulas header image

Nebulas (NAS) - Google for the Blockchain?

Intro

On June 30, 2017 I wrote an article titled “Antshares (ANS) - The Ethereum of China?”. At the time, I didn’t know much about the project other than they had a few promising partnerships, and they were about to rebrand to NEO. It turns out that oddly-named project became a big project - growing by nearly 1000% in Market Cap over the past 9 months.

I discovered Antshares much like I discovered Nebulas, randomly while browsing through event calendars and various news articles. As a catalyst-driven investor, I look for events that are going to create a lot of interest from the community. These events are typically Mainnet launches, air drops, etc. In this case, Nebulas is launching their Mainnet. Before we jump into the project I want to underscore a few members of the team because they are stellar. And after all, if your team isn’t up to the challenge, what’s the point in trying?

Team

Remember how I mentioned Antshares (rebranded to NEO) in the opening paragraph?

Well, it’s a small world after all - the founder of NEO is also the founder of Nebulas. Among the other co-founders and team members are co-founders of NEO, as well as many former Google employees. If anyone knows about what it takes to build a search engine product for the blockchain, it would be this team.

What is Nebulas?

The canned response from their website is “a decentralized platform which provides a search framework for all blockchains. It is an open source public chain”. So, what does that actually mean?

Nebulas is an incentive-based, self-evolving blockchain system with a decentralized platform which provides a search framework for all blockchains. Nebulas focuses on searches among decentralized applications (DApps), smart contracts, and user’s blockchain assets. This highly technical project has three core features:

  1. Nebulas Rank (NR): Open source, core ranking algorithm based on “liquidity, propagation of users’ assets, and the interactivity between users.” NR will help rank various entities (e.g. smart contracts, addresses, DApps.)
  2. Nebulas Force (NF): “Nebulas Force (NF) provides the Nebulas blockchain & its distributed applications built on top, the capability to self-evolve” With NF,  developers can update the protocol, preventing divides in the community from hard forks.
  3. Developer Incentive Protocol (DIP): Positive feedback loop in place to motivate DApp creation.

I guess what we’re talking about here is buying the...DIP? Sorry, I had to say it.

Now, back to the Mainnet release. According to their roadmap on their website, the launch will be sometime in Q1 2018 which is by the end of March 2018.  Hodlers of NAS will have to exchange their ERC-20 tokens for the native NAS token once Mainnet goes live and the Nebulas team has assured everyone that there will be plenty of documentation on that process.

Investment

Ok, the project sounds ambitious, the team is off the charts and we have a catalyst coming up. Let’s look at the 3 month chart from coinmarketcap.com:

 

Compared to a lot of other tokens out there, NAS has remained relatively stable from it’s ATH back in late January. Many tokens have lost over 75% of their value from ATH, but NAS is right around a 50% loss. Currently it’s hodling support around the 0.00061880 BTC level. The ATH is around 0.00116994 BTC, which is almost a 100% move from where we are today. Given the fact that the price has remained stable in the past few months, and the Mainnet launch is rapidly approaching, I would feel very comfortable buying in right now.

Summary

When I look at a new project to invest in, I always look at the same handful of items: what are they building, who’s building it, is there a strong community, and what does the chart look like? In this case, Nebulas has checked every box. If you’re looking to get in on the ground floor of what is shaping up to be a big player in the blockchain space, this is probably a good time to do so.

As always, I’m not a financial advisor and you should do your own due diligence!


TRON Dogs header image

TRON (TRX) - TRON Dogs, BitGuild, and a Coin Burn

Intro

For those of you living under a rock, or already on the moon, TRON is a project aimed to form a decentralized content entertainment ecosystem. Ideally they hope to undercut competitors like Google Play and the Apple App Store. Sounds ambitious, right? It is but this community is very active and the founder, Justin Sun, is as capable as anyone to make it happen.

TRON has a huge advantage over many crypto projects right now due to the 10 million users currently on the Peiwo app - an already successful “Chinese Snapchat”. It turns out Justin Sun is the creator of the popular social media platform where users can tip others with TRX, the cryptocurrency on TRON’s platform.

By integrating TRX into an already existing social media platform, TRON is seamlessly migrating those millions of users into a comfortable place where using the full TRON ecosystem feels much more natural than what other projects in the blockchain space are doing.

TRON Dogs

Everyone has heard of CryptoKitties, but have you heard of TRON Dogs? TRON Dogs are very much like CryptoKitties in that they are both on the Ethereum blockchain, can be bred, bought, sold, etc. In China it is the year of the dog so this was either a very clever marketing tactic or a very lucky coincidence. Either way, TRON & co has done an exceptional job of promoting their ecosystem and the gamified strategy is definitely working with the young user base carried over from Peiwo.

BitGuild

While TRON has done a great job at integrating an existing user base to their platform, they have also created many partnerships inside the gaming community not already owned and founded by Justin Sun. One of these partnerships is with BitGuild. BitGuild is a blockchain gaming platform that uses smart contracts to enable the buying/selling/hodling/etc of virtual assets.

According to the CEO, “Blockchain and smart contract technology allows for gamers to own their items,” Jared Psigoda, CEO at BitGuild, told me. “Instead of an item being flagged on a game developer’s server as ‘belonging to’ a certain player, that item will be sent to that player’s digital wallet over the blockchain. The gamer will own it and be free to do with it whatever she or he pleases, whether that be to sell, trade, or import it into another game. In addition, smart contracts are open source and allow for player verification of things like item drop rates.”

By partnering with TRON, the BitGuild community will have access to and be made aware of TRON, while the TRON community will be introduced to BitGuild and offered limited edition items for purchase using TRX. This is smart marketing, once again! Oh, and BitGuild’s ICO starts today.

Coin Burn

Although there isn’t much information on this, the community is heating up with excitement over the possibility that it may be a significant decrease in supply. There is a screenshot of a tweet available here stating that the coin burn will definitely be Q1 2018, which is by the end of this month. I realize this isn’t much to go on, and if you have further information on this I would love to check it out. But, if you have not invested in TRON yet, now may be an ideal time to do so!

UPDATE: Justin Sun stated via his live stream that TRON will not have a major coin burn but instead will burn tokens similar to how Ripple does with transaction fees, but "smarter".

What’s Next?

The next few months should be fairly exciting both for hodlers and the further development of the TRON platform in general. On March 31, 2018 the Test Net or Beta version of the platform will be released and May 31, 2018 Main Net will be released.

From an investing perspective, it looks like TRON is hodling right around the 400 Satoshi level (0.00000400btc). When we think about risk/reward it doesn’t get much better than this. Support is hodling around 400 Satoshis, and the ATH is around 1600 Satoshis - a 4x from its current level. With all of the catalysts coming up and support being so strong where it is, now would be a good time to get in.

As always, I’m not a financial advisor and you should do your own due diligence!


Everus header image

EVERUS (EVR) - A Mall, Blockchain Platform, Payment Gateway, and Much More.

Why We Like It

Everus has a few things going for it, including a diverse ecosystem, ambitious roadmap, and my personal favorite - a strong support level at its current price. In 16 days they will be launching their proprietary blockchain platform for white label use by enterprises.

When it comes to finding an investment opportunity, we’re big fans of platform launches. After all, what’s more important than launching your core platform? Let’s take a look at the charts to get an idea of when to buy and when to sell.

Enter

Below is a 3-month chart that is looking a bit choppy but the price is bouncing around the 3k satoshi level (0.00003 BTC). I really like the current price (0.00002646 BTC) as it is above the lowest support level of (0.00002512 BTC).

As you can see in the chart, the 3-month high is around (0.00007400 BTC), almost 3x the current price. There is a lot of upside potential here!

Exit

The exit price is very subjective as it depends on your personal risk tolerance, patience, and confidence in the future of the project. I tend to invest only in those projects that I don’t mind hodling long term. In this case, I would set a sell order for around (0.000045 BTC).

Why (0.000045 BTC)? If we look at the chart, the price has touched or come close to that level multiple times in the past couple months, not related to the launch of their platform. I can see this climbing 50% by March 30, 2018 with no issue.

Blockchain Technology header image

How Blockchain Technology is Changing the World

Since the earliest days of the internet, community and security have been key topics associated with both the growth of the digital age and the difficulty of finding a secure place within it.

A noble, albeit elusive goal, the tech giants of today still struggle with the open concept of the internet, while at the same time trying to guarantee with certain securities. Passwords, queries, and the infamous “I am not a robot” prompts are time tested solutions that keep us safe amongst an ever growing online population.

But do they really?

What if the community was the security? What if transactions done online were efficient, transparent and secure? What if everything you transmitted digitally could be done in this manner?

Blockchain technology could very well be the answer to those questions. It also has the potential to be so much more.

What is the Blockchain?

At its core, a blockchain is a series of computers or “nodes” that together make up a network, or digital ledger, of transactions. As new transactions – the blocks – are made, the ledger is updated and all nodes instantly possess the new ledger.

Think of it in terms of a database that is being updated and added to by multiple users, who each in turn have access to the latest, most up-to-date version.

The key to the blockchain concept, though, is that the ledger is not stored by a central entity or in a single location. Instead, it is shared and maintained across the multiple nodes that make up the network.

Born of Bitcoin

Initially, blockchain technology was created to manage digital currency transactions made with Bitcoin. As noted above, the ledger of these transactions were not stored in a data center or in a central repository, as, for example, a bank would.

A simple example of this transaction process may go like this:

  • I have 50 bitcoins but owe you 25.
  • I ping the network of the impending transaction and as my account decreases by 25 yours will increase by the same amount.
  • Each node is alerted to the arrangement, validates it through accepted algorithms, and updates their ledger with the transaction.
  • Every node that is part of the system now has an updated record of the transaction.

It is important to note that the system does not track the actual balance, but instead catalogs the current transaction along with all prior ones.

With the exchange shown above, a few things become clear. First, unlike the majority of modern day financial exchanges, this transaction is public, and is made through a single, common ledger.

Second, there is no intermediary or central point of contact. All of the nodes involved confirm the soundness of the transaction before it is added or finalized in the system.

Finally, there is no middleman handling the paperless transaction. Nothing can get lost in translation and a signature page will not be found stuck between the wall and copy machine. The exchange is quick, efficient and public.

A pointed summation comes from Don Tapscott, co-founder and Executive Director at Blockchain Research Institute. He notes, “At its most basic, the blockchain is a global spreadsheet — an incorruptible digital ledger of economic transactions that can be programmed to record not just financial transactions but virtually everything of value and importance to humankind.”

He goes on to mention that this includes anything from birth and death certificates, marriage licenses, and degrees or diplomas to medical records or procedures, insurance claims, or even votes.

Basically, if the information can be communicated via code, it can be communicated via blockchain.

How Safe Is It?

Going deeper into how the blockchain works reveals the machinations of its security apparatus.

Going back to our Bitcoin example, to initiate the transfer of the 25 Bitcoins, I must possess a wallet, which only I have access to and which is where my Bitcoins are housed. That wallet has a private and public key, both of which are encrypted.

The public key is effectively my blockchain address. The private key is what allows me to retrieve my assets, Bitcoin or otherwise. So when I initiate the transfer, the nodes on the network verify my request by decrypting the public key, not the private one.

With no centralized verification system, the blockchain method of broadcasting the transaction across the network of nodes means the proof is, effectively, everywhere.  makes forging or exploiting the data a fool’s errand.

To explain it another way, if I say the sky is blue and you argue it is not, I would be correct as it is common knowledge and universally accepted that the sky is, in fact, blue.

The blockchain, by repeatedly and publically updating the requests, is creating a commonly accepted authenticity of every transaction performed.

The implications of this are profound. Eliminating identity theft, protecting against mass hacks, and guarding sensitive or proprietary data have been difficult challenges to overcome as thieves, and those aiming to do digital harm become more sophisticated and aggressive in their methods.

Several respected business leaders see the very real benefit of this breakthrough approach to digital security.

Patrick Byrne, CEO of Overstock.com, has said, when referring to the blockchain and money market security, “With blockchain technology, we can create a version of Wall Street where no one can cheat and where all kinds of mischief cannot even occur.”

Additionally, Jason Kelley, IBM Global Manager for Blockchain Services, points out, “It allows people to exchange value without knowing the identity of each other necessarily, in a secure way on the back end. On the front end, it’s simplicity, transparency and trust. Think of all the cost, time and often waste that happens in the exchange of value – blockchain rids that from the system.”

Blockchains, while maybe not a panacea, can aid in creating safer, more reliable data systems through elimination of singular data vaults and propagating irrefutable public records.

Real World Applications

As noted, blockchain may have been created to maintain the integrity of Bitcoin transactions, but the application of the concept has endless potential.

We already covered the document management aspect, from certificate to licenses to certain data records. But what else is there? Several start-up groups are exploring ways the blockchain can improve upon or revolutionize current standards and practices.

One such group is using the blockchain concept for cloud based storage. This enables users to increase their data’s security by eliminating the single storage method of today’s providers. It also allows subscribers to sub out unused space or storage they are not utilizing.

Tech giants and governments alike are also part of the blockchain revolution. Microsoft is actively looking at partnerships with organizations that specialize in the technology. Delaware is the first state in the US to harness its possibilities, hoping to improve efficiencies for companies incorporated within its borders.

Even retail giant Wal-Mart is looking at potential applications through a partnership with IBM. Together, they hope to improve food safety by monitoring the food life-cycle from beginning to end.

As impressive as that list may be, many believe that only scratches the surface. For some, the blockchain may very well be the next level of the internet.

Abigail Johnson, CEO of Fidelity Investments, said this in 2017, “The internet wasn’t just a more efficient way to send letters – it spawned new industries. Blockchain technology isn’t just a more efficient way to settle securities – it will fundamentally change market structures – and maybe even the architecture of the internet itself.”

Conclusion

Public transactions.

Widely verifiable records that are secure and tamper-proof.

Greater efficiencies and reduction of unnecessary costs or time consuming measures.

All of these are goals in pursuing a more community driven and less corruptible means of communicating and transacting with each other. Many prior generations have looked for the right balance in achieving these objectives in creating a better, more hospitable society.

And today, much as in the past, we still strive for that utopia.

Now though, perhaps more than ever before, the future is clouded in uncertainty. No one really knows what the world will truly look like in ten, twenty, fifty years. Unfortunately, this often leads a lot of people to believe it will be fraught with distrust, turmoil and maybe even a bit of madness.

As our world evolves, so do the breakthroughs that help meet those fears head on. And with technologies like the blockchain reconfiguring the way we interact with one another, the future may well be a very bright place.

Airdrops We're Watching header image

3 Airdrops We’re Watching

What’s an Airdrop?

Free money.

They say money doesn’t grow on trees, but it does fall from the sky from time to time. An airdrop is a strategy used to distribute and spread awareness of a particular coin. Essentially, a team behind a coin will use a small percentage of their total coin supply to distribute among those who are hodling another coin at a given point in time.

Ethereum has had many airdrops because of the number of ICOs launched on top of their platform. If you held any ETH in your local wallet, not on an exchange (typically), you received a specific amount of coins based on the amount of ETH you held in your wallet when they took a snapshot.

For more information on what you’ll need to get free money, check out WTF is an Airdrop? A Detailed Guide to Free Cryptocurrency. For now, let’s take a look at a few airdrops we’re watching:

GALA

This is for the NEO hodlers out there. If you have a NEO wallet and you deposit ZPTs, you will receive GALA. The first snapshot was made on March 1, 2018, but the second will be March 15, 2018.

CPS

We touched on this one a bit in CPS Coin - Syscoin’s First Airdrop. The airdrop consists of two parts:

March 17, 2018 - According to the website, “A snapshot of all Coinpayments accounts will be taken. Each of those accounts will receive 100 free CPS Coins and will also be eligible for an additional 25 CPS Coins for each new user referred.”

June 1, 2018 - “A snapshot of all Syscoin wallet addresses linked to Syscoin alisases will be taken. 6% of the total CPS Coin supply will be distributed to each of these addresses, proportionate to the balance of Syscoin held at the time of the snapshot.”

EOS

If you’re hodling over 100 EOS tokens on April 15, 2018, you will receive 1 eosDAC token for each EOS token you hodl. They will be transferred directly into your Ethereum wallet. The eosDAC token is currently on the Ethereum blockchain, so you’ll need an ERC-20 compatible wallet.

Conclusion

Airdrops are easy money. If you already have a wallet with one of these tokens, be on the lookout! If you’re interested in browsing around for other airdrops, one tool we like is coinmarketcal.com. You can search by token, date, event type, and more.
