Coinbase Will Add More Altcoins In 2018

Coinbase Will Add More Altcoins In 2018

Coinbase is one of the most popular websites to buy cryptocurrency. We are now hearing that Coinbase will add more Altcoins in 2018.

from ethereumworldnews.com

“In an interview with CNBC, Coinbase co-founder and CEO Brian Armstrong discusses how bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are becoming Stock Market 2.0. Armstrong also notes that Coinbase will be adding several new cryptocurrencies in 2018 to go along with the three they currently offer — Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin.”

Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong:

“The ones that are the most exciting to us that we have on the platform today are bitcoin, ethereum and litecoin, but there’s many more that are going to be added to the platform in 2018 and I think this is going to be a really exciting space for all kinds of institutional investors to make money.”

Which Altcoins Will Coinbase Add?

We are not certain, but if we had to guess we would say that the best contenders are Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, Iota, Dash, and Monero. (in that order).

We are huge fans and supporters of all these altcoins except Ripple. Ripple (XRP) is a token on a centralized blockchain and for supporters of central banks.

Here are their prices as of 12/27/17

Get Ready! Hardware Wallets Are Coming To Exodus – The Full Exodus Wallet Roadmap

Get Ready! Hardware Wallets Are Coming To Exodus – The Full Exodus Wallet Roadmap

Exodus is easily one of our favorite Bitcoin and cryptocurrency wallets. The UI is amazing, you can store a multitude of different blockchain tokens and there is a built in exchange tool.

AND EXODUS LETS YOU CONTROL YOUR PRIVATE KEYS 👍

Currently Exodus supports Aragon, Augur, BAT, Bitcoin, Civic, Decred, Dash, EOS, Ethereum, Gnosis, Golem, Litecoin, OmiseGo, Qtum and SALT.

And now It has been confirmed! Hardware wallets will be available for Exodus!

“The Exodus team is very keen to add hardware wallet support (e.g. Trezor, KeepKey, Ledger Nano). I can also tell you that personally JP and I both want hardware wallet support ASAP… We also have heard from a number of high-net worth investors this is the ideal platform with the added hardware auth.

We can likely expect support for hardware wallets on Exodus sometime in 2018. The roadmap below has all the details on what Exodus plans to work on.

Future Roadmap

Feature Status Details
SEGWIT developing Support for Bitcoin SegWit transactions, currently under development, will reduce transaction fees.
Ripple developing
NEO developing
Monero 2017 Monero remains on the Exodus roadmap and we are excited to include this asset. Unfortunately, the UI/UX of Monero remains difficult and is still not ideal. Today novice users continue have difficulty with transaction notifications from the current beta GUI wallet from the Monero core team. Because Exodus does personal one-on-one support for each Exodus user we feel including Monero too early would cause a massive support burdon and confuse casual digital asset enthusiasts. Good news is we are getting closer and we do expect Monero to be included in 2017. Although pros and technical users may like bleeding edge technology, until Monero is rock solid, tested and “dog-fooded” internally Exodus will not release Monero until it is ready for “normal” (non-technical) digital asset consumers. Exodus posted an update on Reddit regarding the history and details on XMR integration (Jan 31, 2017).
ICONOMI 2017 Iconomi is an ERC20 token and expected to be released in 2017
Omni 2018 Likely in 2018. Omni, Maid, Tether all fall in the same body of work for Exodus
Maidsafe 2018 Maid is an Omni token and was expected to be released in 2017, but now delayed until 2018. These assets are built on the Bitcoin blockchain and will be contingent on the hard fork outcome in Q4 2017.
Tether 2018 Tether is an Omni token was expected to be released in 2017, but now delayed until 2018. These assets are built on the Bitcoin blockchain and will be contingent on the hard fork outcome in Q4 2017. We are most excited about Tether because of the ability to have a stable peg inside of the Exodus environment.
2FA planned 2-factor authentication support is on the roadmap, this is likely to precede Hardware Wallet Support
HARDWARE WALLET planned The Exodus team is very keen to add hardware wallet support (e.g. Trezor, KeepKey, Ledger Nano). I can also tell you that personally JP and I both want hardware wallet support ASAP… We also have heard from a number of high-net worth investors this is the ideal platform with the added hardware auth.
. .
Siacoin evaluating Exodus is intrigued with Sia but have not looked the tech to see what the options are.
SingularDTV evaluating SingularDTV is an ERC20 token.
TenX evaluating
Zcash evaluating If the Zcash network remains stable and has continual upgrades it is likely we will support this asset in 2017.

Monero Is Now The Only 100% Anonymous Cryptocurrency

Monero Is Now The Only 100% Anonymous Cryptocurrency

A new blockchain analysis firm has released surprising news about Dash and ZCash. There is only one true anonymous cryptocurrency on the market at this time, and it is Monero.

BlockSci, a new blockchain analysis firm, has successfully traced transaction from beginning to end on both DASH and ZCash. This is bad news for these blockchain projects as their biggest focus and value add is anonymity. Now this is technically gone.

The good news is that they were not able to trace transactions on Monereo. Monereo’s level of anonymity and obfuscation is still impenetrable.

MONERO Is Still 100% Anonymous. 👍

From themerkle.com:

Criminals flocking to other cryptocurrencies may want to think twice about those as well. As BlockSci’s whitepaper explains, there are very few cryptocurrencies which have eluded their scrutiny. One of those currencies is Monero, as it provides a degree of anonymity and obfuscation the group has not been able to crack just yet. Monero is officially labeled an “unsupported blockchain due to it not following the one-input one-output paradigm.” That is an interesting point which shows how Monero may be the only cryptocurrency providing full privacy and anonymity right now.

Some people may wonder how Monero is any different from Dash or even ZCash in this regard. While it is true the latter two cryptocurrencies have focused on privacy and anonymity to a degree, their implementations are far from perfect. BlockSci describes how they successfully traced both ZCash and Dash transactions from beginning to end, regardless of features like PrivateSend. This is anything but good news for people who value these currencies for their privacy or anonymity features.

In reality Dash and ZCash user don’t have to worry much. It would be expensive to hire a blockchain analysis consultant to track transactions on these privacy centered blockchains. Just know it can happen.

We still think Dash and ZCash are great. Even if transactions can be traced, it’s still a blockchain asset protected by cryptography. No one can take your crypto assets without your private key.

Lingerie Tycoon Begins Selling Dubai Apartments For Bitcoin

Lingerie Tycoon Begins Selling Dubai Apartments For Bitcoin

Lingerie tycoon Michelle Mone has fearlessly jumped into the Bitcoin world with her new venture of selling Dubai apartments for Bitcoin.

Michelle Mone, also known as Baroness Mone of Mayfair, is a millionaire who is looking to cash in on the rising crypto economy.

From her Instagram:

 

 

 

Her apartments went on sale on September 6th.  She is selling two 40 floor towers which are connected to a large shopping mall.

The Telegraph reports:

“A studio apartment in the complex starts from around 30 bitcoins, or $133,000, rising to 85 bitcoins for a two-bedroom flat. They come with access to a gym, swimming pool and residents’ lounge, and have views over the Dubai Hills and the city skyline.”

The apartments will be extremely nice, similar to what is pictured below (actually probably nicer).

New owners also have the choice to have their apartment decorated by Baroness Mone Interiors, Michelle’s interior design service. And they too can be paid with Bitcoin.

Michelle’s partner in the endeavor, Doug Barrowman owns a company(the Knox group) that struck a deal with BitStamp to be able to hedge themselves against crypto’s volatility.

It is unfortunate to hear that they will be dumping their Bitcoin for dollars, as they will be giving up future billions in cryptocurrency.

But hey, not everyone is smart enough to realize the way of the future and it is pretty cool that they accept Bitcoin. 👍

Have You Heard The BITCOIN ALL THE WAY UP Song By Jeff Berwick?

Have You Heard The BITCOIN ALL THE WAY UP Song By Jeff Berwick?

Most of us have heard about Bitcoin’s tremendous gains over the spring and summer of 2017. It feels like it was just yesterday when we were writing about Kim Dotcom predicting a $2000 Bitcoin, which it of course reached and has now touched $5000.

Jeff Berwick of the Dollar Vigilante and Anarchapulco conference has released a video in celebration and anticipation for what Bitcoin will do next.

Check it out:

BITCOIN ALL THE WAY UP – The Dollar Vigilante feat. Freenauts

Berwick decided to lay down his track over the popular song All The Way Up by Fat Joe, Remy Ma, French Montana, and Infared.

Freenauts joins Berwick in this epic Bitcoin track. They lay down solid rhymes and call out some of the people behind the most popular fiat money schemes.

We wanted to make sure this awesome video is on our blog. We suggest you share it on your social media and create a cd for your car with this song as every track. 😁

Did you know Steemit has a new video application called DTUBE? It stands for Decentralized tube and the videos are posted on the STEEM blockchain. The videos are stored and hosted on IPFS, a distributed file sharing and storage system.
