Cryptocurrencies: Time to reconsider? [poll]

The price of Cryptocurrencies have been tumbling with their mama BitCoin, as China closes local exchanges, but some experts have predicted the cryptocurrency will bounceback and stage a recovery.

Bitcoin's price crashed below $3,000 on Friday for the first time in almost eight weeks, as fears over the cryptocurrency's future prompted a sell-off. It comes as China launches a crackdown on bitcoin by closing local exchanges, with BTCC annoucing an end to trading by the end of the month.

JP Morgan boss Jamie Dimon also fuelled sell offs by calling the bitcoin a fraud.

But despite the short-term price crash - the digital currency has fallen from near $5,000 at the start of the month - BitCoin and other Cryptos will recover, according to experts.

When Jamie Dimon warns against bitcoin, it’s usually a good time to consider buying some

BitCoin is nothing without Jamie Dimon. According to experts, Jamie's -ve comments have been a ploy to get the Cryptos down - after BitCoin kissed it's all time highs of $5000. A correction was always on. Experienced Crypto traders know, the Crypto market does correct upto 40% - after a big bull run. It was indeed helped by Jamie and the Chinese events.

Don't forget Cryptoes like Litecoin - had a huge spike - at around 12 P.M. UTC time - once it kissed it's low of $32. It was indeed from USA. laugh

Now, where does all the Cryptoes go from here? David Coker, Lecturer at Westminster Business School, said: "While the Chinese regulator's crackdown in Bitcoin exchanges was not surprising – China has been trying to put a stop on capital flight for several years now – its actions simply won't be effective for three reasons."

"First, anyone in China with a valid public key - a large numerical value that is used to encrypt data and is generated by a software program or provided by a designated authority - can still receive and sell Bitcoin. Keys are freely available for the asking. The Great Firewall of China won't be able to block Bitcoin traffic originating on Blockchain's decentralised network."
 
"Second, it is well known foreign travel by Chinese citizens has surged in response to the crackdowns on capital flight. Any Chinese citizen traveling to the United States or Western Europe can easily purchase Bitcoin at any one of several thousand public ATMs selling the cryptocurrency."
 
"Third, the history of economics teaches us capital always finds a way."

Etherium will chase BitCoin

September is usually BIG for Crypoos. 2017 is not an exception. We have several technical upgrades coming for some important Cryptocurrencies - Metropolis for Etherium, Escrow for Ripple.

Future Ethereum – Metropolis, Serenity, Raiden

News from Etherium developers is that - The Metropolis (Ethereum 3.0) hardfork upgrade is scheduled for late September. By end of this month - Metropolis will be locked in. This time, there is ALMOST NO CHANCES of a split (like the one we had for Etherium Classic). Thus, this could result in a big bull run for Etherium.

Experts say, this could result in new highs for Etherium - breaching well past it's earlier highs of $418. If we follow the last upgrades, which was back in October 2016, Etherium was in single digits that time. Though the prices are much higher now, but considering the changes that Metropolis upgrades are slated to do - this may well kiss $1,000 - according to the experts.

And after BitCoin, if there's anything that "Altcoins" follow - it's Etherium. So expect a big rise in some other coins as well. Here's a graph that explains the correlation among the Cryptocurrencies.

Ripple and Escrow lock

Then comes Ripple. XRP is surging alongside bitcoin and ether as well as smaller digital currencies like dash and monero. They're all benefiting from the growing interest in blockchain, a distributed electronic ledger that makes all transactions trackable. Unlike other cryptocurrencies on the market, XRP is tied to — and majority-owned by — a single company.

Ripple and ethereum have emerged as the early leaders in enabling business arrangements, with Ripple trying to build the digital payments standard for the financial sector.

Distributed financial technology firm Ripple is on the verge of locking up billions of dollars worth of its native XRP cryptocurrency inside dozens of smart contracts designed to hold value in escrow until a certain time, or certain conditions are met.

Ripple Pledges to Lock Up $14 Billion in XRP Cryptocurrency

Though the timeline for this is not released by the company yet - but this is more than expected to happen within a month or 2.

One of the major fears about Ripple has been uncertainty about their supply and what if Ripple releases too much of their supply into market, thereby suppressing price.  Although, Ripple being a Licensed, Regulated, and Registered company that can be 'Sued' in court for fraud has eliminated much of this worry.

But seems like Ripple wants to be world class in every aspect. Escrow is an extensive lock-up agreement spanning a whole decade and more, removing all market worries about supply.

What does this mean?
1) Suddenly All worries about supply will be defeated in one official move.
2) The supply available will only be the current supply.
3) Overnight will make XRP lot more precious, valuable and most probably will spike up price greatly given so many use-cases and no more new supply in the horizon.

Additionally, as a remainder unlike Bitcoin, ETH etc which are "Inflation" currencies that increase their supply over time, Ripple is Deflationary. Meaning, NO new coin can ever be mined/created, and Supply reduces over time as every transaction destroys certain amount of XRP.

And it does not end there. Its also rumored that Ripple will use their on-platform escrow feature to enforce this lockup and show off the feature to their customers. (Ripple has on-platform cryptographically secure escrow that does not depend on 'any' external services)

There is no doubt that this would be a segwit-level event for XRP. I would say 1 USD instantly after the announcement and even more in the future.

Choices:
I'll consider buying cryptos now (1 vote, 50%)
There's still worry. I'll choose to stay away (1 vote, 50%)
Chinese have October end to complete sell off. Cryptos will be down. I'll consider short positions (0 votes)
Don't like cryptos (0 votes)

The banks really do everything for money.

Bitcoin Price Increases to $3,680, Chinese Exchanges and Experts Remain Optimistic

But I personally like the current fall. Keeping the current upcoming technical upgrades in mind, this is a real buying opportunity.

Though the Chinese events can disrupt the developments a bit, but Japan's evolution as a big Crypto player - really helps the proceedings.

Considering Metropolis will be taking effect from tomorrow - really looking forward to the coming weeks.

Thanks for the post though.

VK advertising

There's no doubt VKontakte is the leading social network on the web, which you should use first and foremost for your online advertising. However, there are cases when you have to look for alternatives. There are three main reasons you might need doing that:
  1. You don't get enough traffic from VK ads.
  2. It's too expensive: the bids you pay per click are lower than the revenue per visitor you get. Though there are other ways to overcome this issue, like using displaynetwork only, misspelled or negative keywords, etc., still in many cases you just have to look for an alternative advertising platform.
  3. Your niche doesn't match VK ads' terms of services.

Two words: Search Function. VK's search function is something that could happily rival Google. Unlike Facebook's ability to search within its own Network, VK can pull up information from anywhere - including 'adult content' and the latest movies, pirated of course.

And it doesn't stop there. The VK search function allows you to find absolutely anyone by entering in a near-stalkerish level of information. But what's better if you can get Vkontakte users to follow you - from your similar interests - without you searching them yourself?

  1. VK find Friends
    Vkontakte has over 215 million users in Russia and Eastern Europe and is also very popular in Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Moldova and Belarus. It counts over 215 million accounts, and about 70 million daily users. On Get Free Followers you can get free VK Friends and can also make money out of it.

Yes! The above VKontakte advertising tool does that job automatically for you - and you don't have to pay a dime for this!

  1. VK like
    VK was created in 2006 as Vkontakte ('in touch') by young Internet entrepreneur Pavel Durov. The social network is far more popular than Facebook in former Soviet republics, where it has more than 100 million users. Add Get Free Followers to tour arsenal and boost your likes count for your VK posts!

It's important that you get as much likes as possible for your Vkontakte posts - to make yourself credible throughout the network. The marketing approach you follow during the early stages of your startup might decide its success or failure.

  1. VK Page
    As we know, VK (Originally VKontakte, Russian: BKohtakte) is the second biggest social network in Europe after Facebook. The widespread use of Vkontakte (now available at the international URL vk.com) is related to the wide range of services it offers.

The one great thing we found about VK is the ease of creating an account. You simply enter a name, phone number, and password, then receive a validation code and you are good to go. If you don't want to give them a phone number, you can also sign up with your Facebook account (a bit counter-intuitive I know). In total, registering for an account takes about 2 minutes.
