The Rise of Bitcoins
 Pranathi Vuppula  
 31 January 2018  

Bitcoin- The first ever form of cryptocurrency developed by Satoshi Nakamoto has caused quite a stir in the recent times. And although it has been through a roller coaster, analysts say that Bitcoin is in fact, here to stay.So what is it that makes people trust this form of money exchange so much, despite it not being legal tender?Bitcoins have no physical form. They are purchased online and stored in something known as the 'Bitcoin Wallet'.Investing in bitcoins, transactions or something known as 'mining' are ways to multiply bitcoins. People also get rewarded for purchasing and sending bitcoins, thus multiplying their money.The factor most strongly in favor of bitcoins is the security this medium provides. There is both transparency and user anonymity. The user has two keys- a public key and a private key. While the public key ensures that all transactions are out in the open for verification, the private key is only present with the user. Personal details of the individual aren't required to carry out the transaction, only the private key is.The transactions can be verified by anyone in the block chain but the identity of the person is concealed. These bitcoins can also be encrypted for backup and safety.Bitcoins work on a peer-to-peer based transaction without the presence of a third party. The lack of an intermediary ensures a faster exchange of money. The hassles of paperwork and the long waiting hours are saved. It also means that there is no chance of random freezing, as is done by the banks.There is also very little transaction charge in such a medium of exchange. It is approximately 0.0005 bitcoins per transaction as opposed to the usual 3-5% interest charge by banks. Digital currency  exchanges convert bitcoins to fiat money and they too, charge a negligible rate.Decentralisation of bitcoins is another reason for their popularity. This past year has been a whirl with demonetization validating and invalidating notes constantly. There is no such risk with bitcoins since the government has no control over it and cannot order it's manufacture or seizure.So whether or not bitcoins are here to stay is a matter for experts to decide, but it definitely seems to have become the favorite of many. And let's hope for the sake of all those who have placed their faith in bitcoins that it does, indeed live up to the expectations that it's been setting.

Understanding Blockchain
 Deepak Garg  
 1 February 2018  

Blockchain is a new technology for performing transactions, often compared to the Internet which revolutionized the way one shares/sees Information. It was first conceptualized by an anonymous person or group of person known as Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008. A Blockchain, in the simplest definition, is a ledger of transaction from the time of its genesis. Transaction is any transfer of a tangible/non-tangible asset within the people associated with that Blockchain. Bitcoin is just one of the many application whose core technology is Blockchain.In most of the transaction, there are three parties involved: the sender, the receiver, and the trusted verifier whose role is to verify that the transaction has actually taken place. For instance, one transfer money via bank through cheque, by money wallet; or one lease out a property after performing certain kind of paperwork implying Government as a trusted authority. A Blockchain removes the necessity for a third party to verify the transaction. This also implies that the Blockchain is robust to fraudster and fraudulent transactions.A Blockchain, visually or programmatically, is nothing but a chain of blocks where each block is a set of transactions. Every block contains information such as current timestamp, a link to the previous block and the next block, a collection of valid transactions during the time period between the formation of previous block and current block. Its network consist of working nodes called miners, whose main work is to create new blocks. These new blocks are joined in a single, continuous, authorative record called Block Chain. Whenever a new transaction takes place, it then propagates to the peers of the originating node and so on, till it exists with the whole network. Now the miners’ job is to validate the transaction and create the block by collecting a set of transactions. Creating a block is computationally expensive cryptographically challenging task. Once such a new block is created it is added to the chain and is then transferred back to the whole network. The other receiving nodes in the network adds the block to the existing ledger after validating the block. If one were to alter any transaction in a fraudulent way which had already taken place, they would have to find a new block that would include that transaction to fit the chain. If the current block to be computed in the network is at number 88, and the altered transaction block was 79, then the person will have to find 9 (79-87) more blocks to make a valid blockchain and pass it to the peer network. This is theoretically possible but is not in real world since finding block is not an easy task, making blockchain an ever increasing, irreversible, secure and public ledgerBitcoin, a very popular digital currency, relies on Blockchain. Applications of Blockchain is not limited to digital currency, it can be used to create smart contracts that execute on fulfilling a certain criteria (ex. Ethereum), for instantaneous peer-to-peer transaction without third parties (ex. In stock trading, property trading, patents), etcTo conclude, Block Chain is a distributed ledger of important transactions stored on a decentralized peer-to-peer network which is incorruptible due to high computation costs of blocks making it irreversible creating a trustworthy network to transact removing the need of middleman.

Nowadays, cryptocurrencies are becoming more and more popular due to their ability to secure financial transactions. It is an innovation in the financial sector as they are becoming the digital medium of doing the transaction in several countries. Lots of quality information are being published every day about rising and fall in cryptocurrencies prices, latest trends and updates on the Internet, which makes the competition to rank their website on search engine very high. Due to this, the search engine optimization of their website becomes important. In this article, we will go through SEO procedures to follow in 2019.What Is SEO?Search engine optimization is the process of optimizing your website in such a way so that they can be visible on top of the search engine result pages. In SEO, the focus is on the content of the website and sharing your website to various social platforms, so that it appeals to the search engine. Search engine optimization gets more difficult to understand when it comes to all the different factors that impact your ranking but is easy to understand. The search engine uses software known as crawlers which search websites based on the keyword entered by the user and ranks them based on the content quality, authority and popularity of the website. Search Engine Optimization is of two types on-page and off-page SEO.On-Page SEOThe on-page SEO deals with the content on your website. This is the part of SEO where you have full control. On-page SEO involves making modifications on the title, meta description, internal links, subheading and image name and ALT tags. Off-Page SEOAs in on-page SEO, you have full control as you are optimizing the content of your website, there are also off-page SEO in which the control is dependant on other factors. Off-page SEO deals with sharing your information to various popular social media platform like facebook, twitter, Reddit etc. These platforms are responsible for providing a rank to your website.SEO Procedures To Follow In 2019Do Research For Popular KeywordsDoing keyword research for cryptocurrency websites is different from other local websites as people can use different types of search engines other than google. So you are required to do keyword research based on these search engines. Also, many countries have strict restrictions on the use of cryptocurrency as a medium of exchange, so research for these countries’ audience should be avoided as they are a waste of time, energy and costs.Keyword research tools like Google Keyword Planner, SemRush, Ahrefs can be used for in-depth analysis. The focus should be done on the most searched keywords and optimize the content based on these keywords. This will result in a higher rank of your website in SERP. Also, long-tail keywords(keywords which are more specifically related queries to something) should not be ignored. Analyze The Competition Market penetration is a very difficult task for any startup as more and more players are getting into the global market. Bitcoin, EOS, Ethereum, have gained strong dominance in the cryptocurrency market. Knowing your competitors is an essential step to develop the best strategy. Due to the volatile, decentralized nature and risks, many of the countries have strict rules and regulation on the use of cryptocurrencies as a medium of exchange. Competition can be analyzed using various tools like semrush, ahrefs, google keyword planner etc. can be used for analysis purpose.Give Updated InformationThe latest information is the most important factor in getting higher search engine ranks. Make sure that your information is always accurate and of high quality. You can use the crypto news, blog to inform the visitors about the cryptocurrency. Infographics also play an important role in providing information to visitors in the form of attractive graphics and images. Also, make sure that the content is up to the quality and free from any grammatical and spelling errors. Use Social MediaSocial Media platforms are the best platforms to promote your cryptocurrency business. Having an attractive profile about the crypto startup in all popular social platforms like facebook, twitter, LinkedIn etc. builds the strong authority of your website. Crypto videos can also be used to provide video-based information about cryptocurrencies.  Web Page OptimizationThis is one of the other SEO procedures to follow in 2019. Update your webpage with fresh and search engine friendly content. Web Page Optimization is important because search engine ranks your webpage based on the quality content contained in your website. Putting fresh content on a regular basis indicates the search engine crawlers(software used by search engines to index and then rank the website based on content relevancy) that some new information is published. This will help you to get higher ranking and traffic to your website.ConclusionIn this article of SEO procedures to follow in 2019, we learnt how techniques like providing up to the mark content, sharing your information on social media and using an SEO-friendly crypto blog could help improve your cryptocurrency website ranking. It should also be known that the SEO world is always unpredictable. Search Engines always update their ranking algorithms to improve there search experience so that no single website gains dominance. The technique which you are using today will prove of no use tomorrow. Thus, you must always be ready for the change for the online success of your business.

Gambling In The USA and Crypto
 Saddam  
 29 January 2020  

Crypto Gambling USAFor many US states, gambling is considered as taboo and is banned. Other than federal laws that clash with state issuances of gambling licenses, zoning is a huge hurdle. Players find it difficult to research the zones that support online betting and those that don’t. In a nutshell, it's only fair to suggest that cryptocurrency gambling which is one of the latest gambling waves, is not entirely accepted in the United States.What’s At Stake The other day, the online gambling industry suffered a huge blow. In as much as crypto is advantageous to the gambling community, the digital currency was questioned about its usefulness. For the most part, crypto has taken over like wildfire in the gaming industry thanks to its anonymity and low exchange charges; these are factors that come in handy when betting and playing online. Within the last ten years, several crypto-based online gambling service providers surfaced and begun rendering their services to a captivated player base. Within a short time afterward, numerous crypto gambling casinos popped up and aggressively marketed their services. Unfortunately, despite their efforts, not all casino players are keen on trying this new form of gaming. Crypto gambling expert, Daniel Kay says” The blockchain is a game-changer in the gambling industry and we are already seeing a mass advancement of systems using smart contracts to provide far greater player benefits that are available through traditional methods.”Online Casino Authorization Other than gaining standard business approvals, various application bodies match up gambling regulators in the slow pace they take to issue permits and licenses. Even fewer persons hold the belief that legalization of these platforms will ever be approved, they’re even more skeptical of the changes crypto casinos will bring forth. National controllers have the power to close down crypto casinos that wish to start operating within their domain. Such actions could lead to huge repercussions that will bring down online casinos as we know them and cause a catastrophe within the crypto environment. Fortunately, there are plenty of bitcoin online gaming sites that are present worldwide. It’s rather shameful that US citizens are banned from taking part in online gaming clubs. When a US citizen tries to access a gambling site, they get automatically block since US-based Ip addresses are flagged. UIGEA As of today, four states in the USA have permitted online gambling. These states include; Delaware, New Jersey, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Native American reservations. The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) that was passed in 2006 by the US Congress and signed into law by then-President George W. Bush is the reason why online betting and poker playing is banned in the United States. Bitcoin Gambling Bitcoin is the first decentralized system that has gone mainstream. The tech makes it possible for clients to undertake anonymous and expeditious transactions. Fiat currency trading saw enough regulation against gambling passed in the United States thanks to its volatility. There are plenty of gambling platforms currently available online. Bitstarz.com is a perfect choice. Since it accords punters with quality gaming services along with the Bitstarz promo code 2020 that gives free spins on registration, it continues to get awards from reputable associations in the online gaming sector. It has bagged the Best Casino Operator and Best Digital Operator two times! Moreover; players on this platform have a variety of options for making deposits and withdrawals. They can go for Bitcoin, PayPal, Mastercard, Visa, etc. Footnote In the United States, the issue of gambling is a tedious affair. In as much as there exist zero government records castigating online betting, the laws are quite stringent when it comes to gambling here!

A Basic Summary of Cryptocurrencies

IntroductionCryptocurrencies are a novel form of assets brought about by the introduction of blockchain technology and secure unalterable coding methods. They are "digital currencies used to generate money and enable transactions" (Source). They are meant to serve as a medium of exchange by mimicking or emulating the conventional characteristics of money, which is portable, durable, divisible, and fungible. Cryptocurrencies' popularity surged towards the end of 2017 on fast-rising prices across the cryptocurrency market, which has since declined to and has remained below levels at least 50% lower than the peak achieved between late-2017 and early-2018. The article below describes the basics of investing and the mechanics of cryptocurrencies.Blockchain TechnologyThe building block of cryptocurrencies is the blockchain decentralized/distributed ledger technology, which is the fundamental security feature of the mechanism of cryptocurrency storage and transaction. According toan introduction to cryptocurrency trading, it is a ledger like a master log that records and stores all recent transactions and monetary activities while validating ownership of all units of a given cryptocurrency at any time. The blockchain is finite, according to the same source, which means over time, the number of blocks on the blockchain increase, and each block is different from the previous block. The Cryptocurrency MarketThere are innumerable coins that are out there on the market for any kind of investor. However, most of the coins (known as "alt-coins", an abbreviation for "alternative coins") listed on exchanges are off-shoots of or build their fundamental mechanisms taken from the most popular cryptocurrency - Bitcoin, the first decentralized digital currency. It has several benefits that has bolstered its popularity which will be discussed later. Other cryptocurrencies include NEM, Tron, Dash, Ethereum, and Cardano, just to name a few. One can purchase cryptocurrencies using conventional currencies such as the United States Dollar by trading conventional currencies for cryptocurrencies on a cryptocurrency exchange, such as BitForex, Binance, BCEX, and HotBit. A full list of cryptocurrency exchanges can be found here. However, one must be aware of crypto taxes that will be imposed on one who trades central bank-issued currency, such as the United States Dollar, Japanese Yen, or the British Pound, and it is advised to be aware of these before investing. One can also trade goods and services for bitcoins just as one would purchase a cup of coffee for a fixed quantity of conventional central bank-issued currency.Benefits of Using CryptocurrenciesSince most cryptocurrencies are built on or are similar to the bitcoin software and transaction system, we will discuss the benefits of using bitcoins as a benchmark for all cryptocurrencies. These benefits can also be found on the official bitcoin website. Bitcoins can be transferred directly from one person to another with little-to-no fees as compared to conventional money transfer practices that utilize clearing houses such as big banks. This is also where crypto tax software can come in handy. Owing to their ability to be transacted over the internet and their origin from open-source software released to the public, bitcoins can be sent from anyone to anyone anywhere in the world, and this applies to almost all cryptocurrencies created after bitcoin. There are also no pre-requisites or arbitrary limits to the amount of bitcoins one can transfer, and consequently, there can be no freezes on your account.ConclusionCryptocurrencies have been present and used in the global economy since the beginning of the 2010s. It began with the invention of bitcoin after the publication of Satoshi Nakamoto's white-paper detailing a decentralized digital ledger-based transaction mechanism that cuts out the middle-man, or a clearing house such as a big bank, and proposed open-source software for enabling this invention to take form. Since then, many coins have emerged as off-shoots of bitcoin with their own niche characteristics tradable on various cryptocurrency exchanges or between people themselves for goods and services. It surged in popularity as its price rose in late 2017 to unseen levels, and cryptocurrencies continue to remain popular within the global economy. Cryptocurrencies promise a bright future with the right implementation and regulatory measures taken to ensure personal and economic security.

Why virtual currencies are wrongly called cryptocurrencies

Why confusion will exist for a long timeDigital money is actively developing and is only on the verge of mass use.The general public has been familiar with the concept of cryptocurrency for about 10 years, and government agencies began to regulate this area only three years ago, and this was due to the rise of bitcoin. The ambiguity in the perception of digital money is clearly visible on the example of Libra, since financial regulators of different countries still have not formed a unified opinion about what Libra is all the same.The definition of cryptocurrency still varies between jurisdictions or even within them. How many regulators, so many opinions. For example, even in one US country, government agencies give cryptocurrencies different definitions depending on their competence:The Securities and Exchange Commission says cryptocurrencies are securities.The U.S. Internal Revenue Service defines cryptocurrencies and virtual currencies as property. The Financial Crimes Network calls cryptocurrencies money. In Russia, officials even called Bitcoin a “currency surrogate,” but we have come up with a single tree of terms that clearly shows differences and similarities with examples.Why are Libra and JPM Coin cryptocurrencies?JPMorgan Chase introduced its JPM Coin as a digital coin, and Facebook executives called Libra cryptocurrency. Obviously, JPM Coin and Libra differ in functionality, but in both cases, crypto enthusiasts spoke out about the fact that Facebook and JPM Coin are virtual money and not cryptocurrencies due to the lack of decentralization. But they turned out to be wrong, because the concept of “cryptocurrency” may well include the absence of decentralization since not all cryptocurrencies work on a public blockchain.Cryptocurrency is a digital currency that is based on cryptography to ensure data authenticity and transaction security.Bottom line: JPM Coin and Libra can be called cryptocurrencies since the protection of the immutability of data in them is based on cryptography.

Rocket Pool - Stake your Ethereum to the Moon!

This is The Weekly Coin, a weekly newsletter highlighting high potential lower cap Cryptocurrency projects.Hot and fresh out of the oven, a steaming cool coin I think you’ll find it interesting. It’s been around for a minute but I’m surprised it’s not talked about much. Hell, even I overlooked this coin around a year ago. Goes to show there are a lot of good projects out there we all overlook. Side note, did you guys know I do all the designs for these emails as well? Trying out my design skills. Ok, on to the details of Rocket Pool.Rocket Pool is a first of its kind, Proof of stake ethereum infrastructure service. Individuals and businesses who want to earn interest on their ether over a fixed term can use Rocket Pool’s decentralized network of node operators to participate in staking.What Is Rocket Pool?Currently, Ethereum is using the time tested Proof of Work (POW) consensus algorithm. I’m sure you know how POW. If you don’t here’s the rundown; miners run hardware and compete against each other to complete transactions on the network and get rewarded. Ethereum is moving away from POW to Proof of Stake or POS. What is Proof of Stake? Well, essentially POS is a consensus algorithm that decides on who validates the next block, according to how many coins you hold. Why move to POS? POS attempts to make Ethereum is even more efficient, secure, and decentralized. Here’s some good info on POS here and here.To stake your Ethereum you are required to lock up 32 ETH in a smart contract which at the time of writing this is $6336. You will also have to keep an Ethereum node online 24 hours a day which if your internet is wonky you can be penalized. Not everyone has the finances to stake 32 ETH as well as the time and resources to run a node. Also, once Ether is staked on Ethereum, users don’t have the option to withdraw their funds early if they need liquidity.What Rocket Pool aims to do is bring staking to the average Joe and in a decentralized way. You’ll only need 1 ETH to stake, you don’t have to run a node if you don’t want to and there are fewer risks as opposed to staking your ETH traditionally on ETH 2.0. Rocket Pool solves these issues by basically being a staking matchmaker.What is the use of the RPL Token?The token used in Rocket Pool is Rocket Pool Protocol Token or RPL for short. RPL acts as a balancing token. It is used to determine the capacity of the decentralized node operator network. A node operator is required to deposit a set amount of ETH as well as a matching amount of RRL. This RPL: ETH ratio is dynamic and is dependent on the network utilization, i.e;If the network has plenty of capacity, then node operators need more RPL to join.If the network is reaching capacity, then node operators need less RPL to join.Subsequently, node operators are incentivized to join the network when it needs more capacity and they are disincentivized to join the network when it doesn’t.Upon reading I asked myself if the only use of the token is to balance out the network what would incentivize those who aren’t going to run a node to buy RPL? Well because of the RPL: ETH ratio a node operator will need more RPL to stake more ETH and increase their staking returns. More RPL means being able to unlock more profit from your node. See where I’m going with this? Thus even if you aren’t going to operate a node the price can still go upSummaryStaking pools will absolutely be the way most people stake their ETH once ETH 2.0 is alive and kicking. Eventually, other staking pools are going to show up, but so far there's only Rocket Pool which gives them a very nice position to the market. Think about how Bitcoin gained dominance because it was the first boy out of the gate.Even if you don’t invest in the Rocket Pool by buying their token I think its a platform that might be of some interest to those who want to take a part in ETH 2.0 but wouldn’t have the means otherwise. Hey, The Weekly Coin doesn’t always have to cover coins you should invest in. I think I can also cover projects you might also want to use.Rocket Pool 2.0 Beta wrapped up late last year and had 50,000 test net Eth staking and close to 1,000 users over 60 days. I think that’s because people are seeing the value of the project. I too think its gonna be something interesting and honestly this would be something I would invest in and maybe even run a node.
