Bitcoin is the most commonly known cryptocurrency. It’s a decentralized digital currency that is secure and private and can be used in transactions worldwide. It carries with it a number of pros and cons and is currently rather volatile.
In this section we discuss everything Bitcoin including how it works, what it’s worth, how you can “mine Bitcoin”, and more.
Below is an image that shows Bitcoin since 2010 to illustrate the three major runs (and corrections)… aka the 3 major Bitcoin market cycles.
LTC had been showing strength, perhaps in part due to the LTC + BEAM announcement. That led to BTC breaking short term resistance with a $300 run in the span of 5 minutes.
Jack Dorsey tweeted about Bitcoin, and specifically the Lightening Network (LN). CryptoTwitter loved it.
Bitcoin added Bitcoin support to their multi-coin ERC-20 friendly wallet Coinbase Wallet (not to be confused with Coinbase Consumer).
The Cboe withdrew its request for the SEC to consider a rule change for the VanEck Bitcoin ETF (the approval of which could have led to a Bitcoin ETF being listed on the Cboe). Impressively, Bitcoins price barely reacted.
Coinme and Coinstar are teaming to bring Bitcoin to Coinstar. You can now buy Bitcoin at Coinstar Kiosks at local grocery stores around the country.
When a coin does a hard fork, two identical blockchains exist until changes to one of the chains is made. To avoid transaction replays (transactions made on one chain being broadcast on the other), at least one chain must implement replay protection (developers of one chain must change the format of transactions to make them unique).
If we didn’t just have a brutal year long bear market, crypto charts would be looking very hopeful right now. Essentially all major charts are breaking out or primed for a breakout.
Bitcoin rallied back to $4k from recent lows and crypto followed as stock markets around the world continue to fall into a state of decline.
