Investing in cryptocurrencies reflects the investor’s opinion that in the future the cryptocurrency will be a functional means of payment. It’s that simple. How can the future of cryptocurrencies be predicted? Let’s have a look at it.

Nothing has changed since I’ve posted my first article. Because nobody buys coins these tough days, let’s think about future of cryptocurrencies. And I won’t be pessimistic although I’ve suffered the big losses, probably comparable with your losses so I probably know how do you feel. The most important is the paragraph written in bold. It’s like Lord’s Prayer for Christians.

Will be bitcoin a functional means of payment? It’s used for payments around the whole world (even in China although there’re restrictions). People always will find a way to use bitcoin even if it’s restricted. In developed countries, some people argue that bitcoin is unusable for common payments because of its transaction fees and slow payment processing. But behind bitcoin is huge community improving bitcoin every single day. And there are companies working on the lightning network which will speed up transactions and payments will become cheaper.

Will be Streamr (DATAcoin) a functional means of payment? What’s changed since I’ve published my article about DATAcoin? Have you heard about Zipper? It‘s ethereum-based mobile platform, which recently announced a partnership with Streamr, aims to develop a dedicated blockchain smartphone solution for the easy and secure use of cryptocurrencies and blockchain applications, right out of the box. But nobody hears good news because of this tough times. And they’ve announced that Data Marketplace will be delivered before the end of 2018. Great news! But nobody’s listening.

You can read about cryptocurrencies on Steemit as well!

I don’t want to write about more crypto coins in this article. I just wanted to point out that everybody is in panic, don’t listening to a good news. Crypto traders are mostly like (no offense) animals – everybody asks (e.g. Quora, Steemit, Reddit): Will bitcoin reach 20k (15k, 10k)  again? Should I invest in bitcoin (EHT, NEO, XMR,…whatever)? Ok, gain some experience by asking skilled crypto traders is great, but it’s good to read whitepaper as well…

So what to say at the end? This time I’d be careful. It could be a great time to buy discounted crypto coins but in my mind, 8800USD/BTC is somewhat like technical support (in terms of technical analysis, but I don’t believe in TA) and it’s been broken.

The main objective of FunFair (FUN) is to allow anyone to create an online casino within seconds. So if you have wanted to build an online casino (yes, it’s not the bad idea) Funfair will provide you the software and support to get started. FunFair is a decentralized gaming technology platform which uses the Ethereum blockchain, smart contracts, and proprietary state channels to deliver casino solutions with games that are fun, fast and fair. Is it enough for successful cryptocurrency? May it work? You’ll see.

Do you remember about HST token utilizing blockchain for a voting system? This is quite similar, FunFair is utilizing blockchain and it brings the same advantage like for HST: it’s fast, cheap and trustworthy system.

Let’s go back to „trustworthy system“. If you play online casino games or in a real-life casino, you must believe in casino system that it’s fair and the odds are proper (you know roulette odds are a 48.65% chance of having black come up). Most online casinos are incorporated in island microstates. Do they have proper regulations? I personally wouldn’t trust these casinos. Ok, of course, they have to fulfill some regulations according to national law where they’re operating, but still, I wouldn’t believe them so much like I believe in the blockchain.

According to official webpage, they have experienced team: Jez San is a British technology entrepreneur and investor whose pioneering work in the field of real-time 3D computer graphics led to being awarded the OBE for services to the computer games industry. Jez founded Argonaut Software in his teens and designed the first chip used to power 3D games including multi-million-selling Star Fox, Harry Potter, and Croc. He also founded 3D online poker room PKR and microprocessor developer Arc International. Maybe you know others people from the team like Jeremy Longley, Oliver Hopton, David Greyling, Rob Palmer-Hole,…

What is determining the price of FunFair token? It’s easy. Imagine token like a gas for companies adopting gaming platform. They’ll need tons of FunFair tokens and it’s gonna happen in 2018, the price of FUN will fly to the moon!

And what more, they already have a working product. You can try https://showcase.funfair.io. There’re two options – you can even test games on Ethereum testnet. Just add Google Chrome extension MetaMask and set Kovan Test Network:

Then ask for some Ethereum on https://gitter.im/kovan-testnet/faucet (just post your address from wallet created by MetaMask and you will receive 5 ETH (zero value) in seconds.

And then go back to https://showcase.funfair.io and request for TESTFUN. Now you’re ready to test games on blockchain and you’ll see that it’s fast, fun and fair!

Threats

Of course, like every time, a threat is every competitor. Right now, FunFair’s competitors are months or even years behind FunFair. But if they just rest on their laurels they’re going to

fail anyway. Concretely, competitors are DecentBet (DBET, the market cap 20 million), EdgeLess (EDG, the market cap 110 million), DAO.Casino (BET, the market cap 10 million) and others not worth mentioning.

Conclusion

FunFair has no new idea, gambling via blockchain was depicted in Nathaniel Popper’s book Digital gold several years ago. But FunFair is the best gambling project what I’ve ever seen – they’ve experienced team in gambling, working product, great platform and marketing is not aggressive. I believe they’ll hire marketing professionals and the price will skyrocket, not mentioning that companies adopting FunFair platform will buy tons of FunFair tokens!

Hello everybody,

now you can see my actual mid-term portfolio (investment horizon is about 1 year). Right now you can be absolutely sure that I just don’t write some bullshit and I don’t buy anything or completely different coins. Feel free to comment my portfolio.

Decision Token

Investing in cryptocurrencies reflects the investor’s opinion that in the future the cryptocurrency will be a functional means of payment. It’s that simple. How can the future of cryptocurrencies be predicted? Let’s have a look at it.

The main principle of Decision Token – may it work?

Today’s article will be, for the first time, about cryptocurrency under 100 million market cap. I guess, the reason doing so is obvious. Such a cryptocurrency usually has much bigger potential than well-known coins like Litecoin, Ethereum or Bitcoin.

HST aims to revolutionize the voting process with blockchain. Today voting process in the most of countries is slow and expensive. People very often just don’t go to the polls because they don’t believe in their outcome as it may be corrupted or something like that. So we need to revolutionize the voting process. And the good news is that it can be done with blockchain.

How does it work? It’s easy.  Imagine that you’re for example a small city having a communal election. The city buys HST and it’s money for paying for the whole ecosystem for voting. Once you exchange your money for HST you can set up your account and you can organize voting. Voting is not limited to the communal election, another good case of using HST is voting at a general meeting of public limited companies or presidential general elections.

According to the whitepaper, this voting is going to be 10-15times cheaper than in Australia’s federal elections.

May it work? Yes, I wouldn’t write about coin (or token) about which I think it has no future. It’s simple. HST  a secure voting system to different entities – they will use the opportunity to change voting system to cheaper and more secure system. Once, demand for HST will substantially grow, the price will grow as well.

I see great opportunity in this token because I can’t see exaggerated marketing about HST unlike other coins (or tokens) without any good project. Once, they will emphasize marketing, the price will skyrocket and I want to participate in it. Right now it’s listed only on Cryptopia, Kucoin, EhterDelta, and LiveCoin – once listed on some big exchange like Binance or Bittrex, the price will fly to the moon!

Threats

Threats are, of course, competitors – these days well-known coin Waves and others. Another threat is that this project will not be so attractive for big players like big cities or companies – it needs to implement some new technology and Decision Token will not be able to convince them to use HST.

Conclusion

Every day we use new technology so voting in the 21st century shouldn’t be an exception. I believe in HST as it has the small market cap and it’s not listed on any big exchange and HST has really promising (and working) project.

Hello everybody,

yesterday we saw quite a crazy market correction. I don’t want to write a long essay, but I think this is the best time to buy some coins. Yesterday I used the opportunity and bought bitcoin for the price 10 000USD/BTC. Maybe we’ll see another and much more wild correction like 50% down. Who knows? My strategy is to buy everyday coins like Monero, IOTA, DATA for certain amount (for me it’s 100USD/day). I believe it’s winning strategy this time when everybody is in panic. The best platform for cryptotrading is Binance!

Investing in cryptocurrencies reflects the investor’s opinion that in the future the cryptocurrency will be a functional means of payment. It’s that simple. How can the future of cryptocurrencies be predicted? Let’s have a look at it.

The main principle of anonymous cryptocurrencies is, of course, full anonymity? Is it enough for successful cryptocurrency? May it work?

Drugs

Let’s start! Very simply, you send bitcoins, your transaction is recorded on the blockchain (information about a sender, receiver and amount) so it can’t be considered to be anonymous cryptocurrency as some think. But this is probably not your case since you are reading the article about anonymity.

The best platform for cryptotrading is Binance!

It’s extremely difficult to understand the technology behind anonymous cryptocurrencies so let’s make it simple and think within a period of one year. I warn you, today it will be a bit immoral. Imagine you want to buy some drugs. You know you must be anonymous but you are not skilled IT specialist and you don’t want to spend a lot of time searching information about anonymity so you do just quick research on Google like “the most anonymous cryptocurrency”. In every article, Monero is mentioned and is generally considered to be the most anonymous cryptocurrency. I would compare Monero vs. other anonymous cryptocurrencies is like Bitcoin vs. other cryptocurrencies.

Basically, if you want to pay by cryptocurrencies you will probably use Bitcoin. If you want to pay anonymously you will most likely use Monero. Of course, there is Dash, Zcash or less known Spectrecoin or others. But do you want to risk being caught? Probably not, so probably you won’t search for new anonymous currencies which aren’t generally considered to be fully anonymous. Another great thing about Monero is that it isn’t funded and developed by any legal entity, it’s more difficult for governments controlling its faith. Zcash is, for example, privately owned and developed by Zerocoin Electric Coin Company (ZECC) – a government can easily focus on it. Moreover, 20% of each minted block goes directly to that company, you can consider it as a tax.

Threats

Threats are, of course, competitors – Zcash, Dash, Verge etc. As mentioned, in the medium term (one year) there’ll be major anonymous cryptocurrency, like there’s major cryptocurrency Bitcoin right now. Anything can happen but I don’t think there’s a better medium-term investment in anonymous coins (risks compared to expected return). The biggest threat for every anonymous coin is, of course, a security issue. Monero uses a ring signature system to provide anonymous transactions. Users can set the how many mixins they want for their transaction, which makes it easier or harder to trace. Once you need to make a truly anonymous payment you can choose more mixins so nobody can trace it. So the major threat is the human factor as somebody can fail to make fully anonymous payment and get caught. Then it can be considered to be the flaw of Monero. A similar case is when the user pays with Monero and doesn’t use any software for enabling anonymous communication and get caught.

Conclusion

Monero is used to make anonymous payment more and more because people have good personal experience with it. Since anonymity is the most important matter to a certain group of people they don’t want search for new anonymous currencies and they’ll rely on great Monero as long as there won’t be any big security issue. And I believe there won’t be any significant problem.

The main principle of Streamr – may it work?

Let’s freely follow up the last article about IOTA because it has something to do with Streamr. A Common denominator is the Internet of Things (for more please see the previous article). Unlike IOTA, Streamr doesn’t bring a completely new solution like a ternary code but it uses Ethereum as a platform. The advantage is that developers don’t need to concentrate on possible flaws of unexplored things so they can concentrate on the main principle of Streamr – data streaming on the one side and data consuming on the other side. The main objective of Streamr is real-time data streaming and it’s working very well.

The best platform for cryptotrading is Binance!

Let’s be more concrete. On Streamr.com you can check very impressive part of the Streamr project – editor which gives you simple to use tools that let you try how you can work with real-time data and react to events. And you don’t need to be a programmer.

 

Let’s explain the picture of how it works. In Streamr you can choose a type of data stream (I chose “bitcoin” in Twitter posts according to the tutorial). Then type time interval (frequency of “bitcoin” in Twitter posts in last 1 minute). Then you can set up GreaterThan, Filter, and Email sending you an e-mail every time number of bitcoin mentions on Twitter exceeds a threshold. In addition, there is available the Table in which you can see real-time data stream. Right now you can use Streamer for bitcoin trading.

DATAcoin is the means of compensation among data producers and consumers. It’s monetization mechanism for data producers. A smart device like a self-driving car can stream a traffic data. The smart device can produce data for anyone (for free) or just for subscribers (and get paid for it). Worth mentioning are broker nodes (the “miners” of this network) between subscriber and consumers which establish a P2P network. According to whitepaper “The network hosts a publish/subscribe mechanism and supports decentralized storage of events. The network throughput scales linearly with the number of participating nodes, and it can process millions of events per second. Nodes are incentivized to do two things: report checksums for their assigned partitions to the network coordinator smart contract, and deliver data to any smart contract subscribers.” And they are paid for it by DATAcoins.

Threats

Every time you value an investment, you shouldn’t forget about risks. Right now cryptocurrencies keep rising so one can easily omit threats. I see short or mid-term threat that DATAcoin isn’t listed on any well-known crypto exchange except Bitfinex and Ethfinex so there may not be sufficient demand which would lead to significant growth of the price. But at the same time it’s opportunity – once DATAcoin is quoted on the stock exchange, the price will very likely increase significantly. Another threat is IOTA which solves the same problem and it could attract all the attention and leave DATAcoin unknown.

Conclusion

I really like DATAcoin as it’s backed up by experienced project management team and it solves the real-life problem – data streaming for IoT. Streamr can provide you very good editor so Streamr is right now very useful for a common man. Threats mentioned above are just short or mid-term risks. In long-term only one thing matters: cryptocurrency will be a functional means of payment. I believe DATAcoin will.

Investing in cryptocurrencies reflects the investor’s opinion that in the future the cryptocurrency will be a functional means of payment. It’s that simple. How can the future of cryptocurrencies be predicted? Let’s have a look at it.

The main principle of IOTA – may it work?

Firstly, regarding the picture above, maybe that’s an extreme exaggeration, but maybe not really. After reading this article you’ll know. IOTA is cryptocurrency for IOT (Internet of Things). According to Wikipedia “The Internet of things is the network of physical devices, vehicles, home appliances, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity which enables these objects to connect and exchange data. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to inter-operate within the existing Internet infrastructure.” What is the role of IOTA? Imagine that there are millions of self-driving cars and you own one of them. The car can connect to others, buy real-time data of traffic (in exchange for IOTAs) and decide which route would be the fastest way to your destination. You might say: “All right, that sounds good but my self-driving car can buy data from Google or sb. else. Yes, but this is just one example. There will be devices from which Google will not be able to collect data like devices in smart homes. In future, we will have billions of smart devices and your device will just search for other devices and buy necessary data. So the answer is yes, IOTA can work and in my opinion, it will.

The best platform for cryptotrading is Binance!

And there are no transaction fees because all IOTAs are premined and transactions are verified by other transactions, not by miners. If you send IOTAs you have to, at first, confirm another two transactions and then your transaction could be confirmed. So your only transaction fee is a little energy for confirming another two (random) transactions. A potential problem is 51% attack, or in the IOTA’s case 34% attack because it runs on ternary code. The problem is solved by adding Coordinator which generates every minute Milestone (for more please see https://www.reddit.com/r/Iota/comments/7c3qu8/coordinator_explained).

The point is that unlike the bitcoin IOTA could be really decentralized cryptocurrency in future after removing the Coordinator which is run by IOTA foundation. Now you might be thinking why bitcoin is centralized. All right, bitcoin isn’t fully centralized but these days several mining pools have more than 50% hashing power so if they want to increase transaction fees in order to temporarily decrease price, they can. Yes, of course, it’s better than one central authority but still not good.

Threats

Every time you value an investment, you shouldn’t forget about risks. Right now cryptocurrencies keep rising so one can easily omit threats. In IOTA’s case it could be inability to remove Coordinator so IOTA will be centralized forever. IOTA’s programmers said they’ll remove coordinator but nobody knows when. Another threat is in ternary code – cryptocurrency based on ternary code is something new (it’s both plus and minus) and I believe that we haven’t discovered all the drawbacks about it. Interesting thing about IOTA is unprofessional behavior of programmers. Just try to read some discussions on Reddit etc. and you’ll see childish reactions from IOTA’s team every time someone points out on unimportant drawback about IOTA. And last one I’ll mention is “fake news” as it’s the most recent problem. If you try to do some Google research about IOTA you’ll find news about “partnership” with Microsoft or Samsung. Dominik Schiener, co-founder of IOTA, made it clear here: https://blog.iota.org/iotas-data-marketplace-setting-the-record-straight-576fbf0b4513. So whenever you read something about IOTA or other cryptocurrencies you should verify your information.

Conclusion

After reading about threats you might think it’s rather “shitcoin” than great cryptocurrency depicted as a tasty apple in contrast to other cryptocurrencies showed as a destroyed apple at the beginning of the article. But you should realize that these threats are very insignificant compared to IOTA’s huge potential: real-time data are more and more important and IOTA is the solution of instant buying of data needed by smart devices.

I recommend IOTA at least as mid-term or better as the long-term investment. Internet of Thing will not spread across the world in one or two weeks, neither IOTA will (except bubbles caused by the fake news).
