From 2009 to 2020, cryptocurrencies have come a long way, and during all these years, it has gone through a roller coaster ride. But, one of the significant development seen in this field was an investment in cryptocurrency. The rise of cryptocurrency exchanges indicates there has been a remarkable growth in this field. The rise in cryptocurrency exchange and investors’ growing interest have made Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies a popular choice among individuals. In this blog, we will discuss the best cryptocurrency exchanges and how they are performing so well. Best cryptocurrency exchanges Talking about the cryptocurrency exchanges, then Asian-based cryptocurrency exchange platforms are ruling the global crypto trading industry. An example of this is Tokyo-based Binance and Hong Kong-based OKEx; these bring in more than $1.7 billion daily. If we talk about the volumes, then Houbu from Singapore, Bithumb from South Korea, and Bitfinex from HongKong are performing the best. When calculated, Aisa-based exchanges are ruling over 50% of the daily crypto trading. Crypto exchange makes money in the following ways: Commissions- One of the common ways of making money is via commission. It is a fee for facilitating the trade between buyer and seller. The digital exchanges have a commission as low as .01%. If the dealing is in large volume, then the commission is on a higher side. Listing fees- For a new cryptocurrency exchange, getting a more common and large volume of transactions would be difficult. But they can make money by listing fees. They can come up with a token and can list it, and earn revenue from it. Some of the common ways are Security Token Exchange, Initial Coin Offering, Initial Exchange Offerings. With either of these methods, exchange operators may collect a percentage of funds raised. Fund collection- You can equip the platform for IEO and allow others to organize their token sales. In this scenario, your cryptocurrency exchange platform serves as a repository for but tokens. Investing in Bitcoin and information about Bitcoin exchange When we are talking about cryptocurrency exchange, then how can we miss Bitcoin? After all, it was the kickstarter of this revolutionary financial transformation. Bitcoin farming is a way to exchange the value of Bitcoin. Those who wish to earn Bitcoin have to mine it by solving complex programs. These individuals are called miners. And they ensure that the network is secure and free from any threats. Those who wish to invest in Bitcoin also have the option of choosing Bitcoin ATM; it allows you to purchase Bitcoin via cash or debit card. Conclusion- This was the basic information about how you can do Bitcoin farming and some of the common ways the cryptocurrency exchanges generate revenue. All these changes and transformation shows that there is going to be a growth in cryptocurrencies. With more than 5000 cryptocurrencies floating in the market, we can only expect this number to grow in the future. For more such interesting information, connect with Blockchain Council today.
It's easy to forget how far we've come in so little time. A decade ago free-market money in digital form was a completely foreign concept to 99% of the world. Now, pretty much everyone I talk to knows about "blockchain" and "bitcoin", and we have hundreds of teams working to make free-market digital cash a reality. A few of those teams have really compelling products - it's no longer a science project - and Dash is leading the way. I am continually checking the wider landscape to see if any projects besides Dash are starting to catch up to us. I see great innovators and hard work, but I don't see the progress that I see in Dash. Our closest competitor is Bitcoin Cash. They seem to have the right vision, digital cash, and they have excellent engineers and a passionate community, but something is missing. Several large Bitcoin Cash mining pools recently announced a proposal/plan to start paying developers with part of the block reward. The concept is the same as Dash (pay developers with inflation), but the distribution mechanism is vastly different. I've been closely following the discussion and debates in btc and it's been fascinating to see the reactions. Some general trends I'm seeing:
Many are opposed because they consider the plan a "coercive tax"
Many are opposed because the funds will be controlled by a Hong Kong corporation
Some are opposed because it may increase centralization and decrease security
Some are opposed because it gives more power to big miners
Others are opposed for the opposite reason, that it takes power away from miners
Proponents consider the need to fund developers outweighs the risks and costs above
Both proponents and opponents are concerned it will cause another chain split
What I'm grateful for is that Dash has worked out many, if not all, of these issues already. We are paying developers, and we have control over who gets the funds, how much they get, and for how long they get them. For the most part we don't care if funded entities set up corporations to run their internal affairs or not (we can always defund if a problem arises with either approach for a specific scope). While the specific funding decisions can be difficult, the process is smooth, and getting more streamlined every month. We don't consider our superblock to be a "coercive tax". Those who do have already left, can leave at any time, or simply don't join. It's all understood, and is completely voluntary. We just finished another successful month of funding where we voluntarily paid developers, marketers, and other workers roughly 5,700 DASH (~$655,000) for the value their work has or is expected to bring to Dash. That's how the real world operates - people do valuable work and they get paid for it, mutual benefit, every transacting party is happy (or at least should be). And while we're on the subject of this month's payouts, I'd like to add a few of my observations. I was pretty happy to see how the funding shook out. I've had my criticisms of the Dash Investment Foundation, but they took action (revised their proposal at a lower cost) to address one of them this month. Whether my or other people's input had anything to do with their revision doesn't matter as much as that they made the revision, and their proposal passed. I expected Dash Force to resubmit their proposal with a lower ask. There was plenty of time to do so. I didn't want them to receive zero (their work is more valuable than zero), but it seems I was not alone in the opinion that the juice was simply not worth the squeeze with that proposal. I hope they re-evaluate and come back next month with a more compelling value proposition. Speaking of value propositions, one last observation about this month's superblock: If you haven't already, check out the DACH's DCW marketing proposal. I was skeptical when I first skimmed it, but when I came back to it later in the cycle and read it through all the way (including the resources they linked to) I was pretty impressed by the thought that went into it. I'm cautiously optimistic about its potential. I'm truly grateful for our independent Dash contractors. It takes guts and heart to submit proposals. It's not always the most rewarding job. I'm grateful all of you who put in proposals, and keep coming back, especially after you get kicked in the teeth by MNOs. Those of you who have not been through this process don't have much justification to complain. I know this is a long post, and thank you for reading, but I'd like to circle back to Bitcoin Cash. I said they were missing something. What? They really are missing two crucial components.
Governance - They have to rely on social media platforms and hash wars to make decisions. It's clunky.
Funding - They have to rely on donations (time and money) and/or outside interest groups. It's dangerous and slow.
I don't see Bitcoin Cash figuring out either of these things anytime soon. I've seen the debates, it's not an easy situation for them. I honestly hope I'm wrong and that they do figure them out, because I want stiffer competition for Dash, and more options for digital cash. For now, and for the foreseeable future, I'm just grateful we have Dash. We're getting closer to user-friendly digital cash every day.
China's authorities and oligarchs took control of cryptocurrencies like bitcoin in very early stages because they thought it was a western plot to sabotage China. So the authorities in China used the taxpayer's money to create giant mining farms and crypto exchanges to take control of this whole sector. The mining process is very energy intensive and polluting. They already use more electricity than two medium size countries, or 10 times more electricity than Hong Kong, to maintain these bitcoin mining farms. The cost of mining is many millions of dollars per day. The crooked regime insiders also run pump and dump scams on the crypto exchanges to attract the public to buy these virtual coins and then they dump the prices and run away with the money. If you want to hurt these oligarchs and the authorities who are profiting from these scams, then encourage everyone in Hong Kong to sell bitcoin and any other cryptocurrency. Educate the public about who controls these mining farms and who is making the money from it. Corrupt politicians in the US and Europe are also being bought and bribed with these virtual coins. If you make the prices of these cryptocurrencies collapse you will see the authorities and oligarchs will lose money. They will feel the power of educated people and they will bend down to kiss your feet!
Original post: http://www.stats-et-al.com/2019/08/seasteading-economic-opportunities.html This is an attempt to start a conversation about different means of making a living while seasteading. From chatter online, I've heard many of the same intended sources of income: bitcoin and other crypto mining, playing the stock market, tourism, and freelance software engineering. These strategies won't work. Not because they are bad ways to make a living, but because the supply will quickly outsize the demand, no matter how good each worker is at programming, or how amazing each oceanic hotel is. Somebody has to grow the food for all these service and knowledge workers. In short, we need economic diversity. Below are some seasteading-based economic opportunities, arranged by their distinct advantages. Goods and services needed by seasteaders. These are sources of income that will improve with the number of people seasteading, rather than worsen. Success at such enterprises depends on the overall economic success of seasteads in general, but they also tend to foster skills that are valuable on land as well, as a fallback. Infrastructure, ...and the tradespeople necessary to maintain it. Every environment has its challenges, and the world's oceans provide unique, and potentially labour-intensive ones. Maintaining infrastructure is a question of survival, so it can't just be neglected, and that maintenance includes a lot more plumbing and underwater welding per capita than land dwellings. Furthermore, the current crop of aspiring seasteaders is over-represented by computer programmers and others with work-at-home skills. Either a lot of these people are going to need to learn a trade, or some major incentives and recruitment are going to be needed to launch a serious long term seastead. *Security * While the 21st century is not exactly an age of piracy, some form of private defense is valuable. Being independent of any one country (or using a flag of convenience) means being free of both the rules AND the protection of that country. As Hong Kong has recently taught us, it's not always enough to simply be beneficial to your host nation. Emergency services Say what you will about roads, but they are pretty good at carrying people in a hurry. For smaller seasteads, getting to a hospital in an emergency is a lot harder than getting there in an equivalent land dwelling. Medivac helicopters are an expensive and fuel-intensive means of reaching and moving patients, so there's an opportunity for ambulance boats. Food More specifically, food security. Without a network of roads to carry large amounts of food from one part of a continent to another in hours or days, a loss of a local source can be much more problematic. That means food production may be harder or impossible to scale or consolidate as it has been in many places on land. That means many food sources will always be more expensive per calorie than on land, but also that aquaculture can provide more long-term employment per capita than land-based farms. Computational resources Internet access via satellite is available for now, but it's not a scalable solution. Most long-distance digital traffic is cable-based. Any seastead that finds a way to provide a stable internet connection, either by creating a branch to an existing transoceanic cable or by spooling their own cable out from the mainland, could quickly find itself to be a major hub. This is especially important considering the number of knowledge-based workers looking to seastead; more on that later. Furthermore, maintaining large servers poses additional challenges because of the humidity, occasional movement, and electrical demands. Power production is a different beast on the sea; clean production is a lot easier than fossil-fuel or nuclear based because of its modularity. Industries with advantages at sea. These represent sources of income that have distinct economic advantages over land-based competitors. These could be related to ready access to the ocean, the flexibility of available space, the freedom from being fixed in one location, or the freedom from government impediments. Related to being on the water Plastic harvesting and related salvage. By anchoring something that skims the water surface in place against a reliable ocean current, collection and salvage of floating debris can be made very efficient. Using everything that is collected is more challenging, but that could itself be an opportunity for knowledge workers. Aquaculture. There is already massive overfishing without people living on the sea, so aquaculture is going to be a must. Not just fishing and harvesting edible life from the seas, but cultivating the food. There's a lot to say about aquaculture and I'm not an expert by any means. However, one advantage of oceanic aquaculture worth noting is that there are large sections of the seas in which there is almost no life. These oceanic deserts could be re-seeded at minimal detriment, or even a net benefit to the environment. Fresh water production. It's simple but energy-intensive to produce. Get yourself a floating solar still, and let the cash condense out of the air. Production of fresh water scales very well economically, because the surplus can be sold on land in many places. Related to an abundance of space. Carbon credits, and related geoengineering. Through an abundance of space and sunlight, otherwise infeasible means of fixing and storing carbon are possible. This includes cultivating carbon-hungry algae, but also energy-intensive air-to-fuel technologies like those being developed by Carbon Engineering and Global Thermostat. Unlike many offset-based methods of claiming carbon credits like the ECX in the European Union, this could be backed up by physical delivery of the algae, fuel, or calcium carbonate pellets. One issue with this that fixing carbon and then dumping it in the ocean could make things works by contributing to ocean acidification. Proceed with caution. Related to being independent of land-based nations Biotech, such as drug discovery and medical procedures. How's that stem-cell research going? How about artificial meat? Is your local government holding back the things that you or the planet need to survive? There's a lot of good reasons why restrictions and regulations on these fields exist, but there's a lot of reasons that are just lobbying and legacy. Related to having flexibility of location. Knowledge work. A few of these were mentioned at the beginning of the article, but these aren't the only types of knowledge work that could be done from anywhere with an internet connection. There's also translation, writing, consulting, and many forms of research and education.
Chinese Cryptocurrency Mining Giant Files for $400 Million IPO in US
https://preview.redd.it/9kl03htgsfv31.png?width=685&format=png&auto=webp&s=644f851791a27385c1ca6a336477d931a2e8f120 Chinese cryptocurrency mining giant Canaan Creative has filed to be a publicly-traded company in the United States. On Oct. 28, Canaan Creative filed for an initial public offering (IPO) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to raise $400 million, while planning to be listed on the Nasdaq under the ticker CAN. Canaan reportedly filed a $200 million IPO draft request with the U.S. regulators in July, but the formal F-1 form was not made public until today. If successful, Canaan, which is one of the three major Chinese crypto mining companies alongside Bitmain and Yibang International, could become the first China-based mining firm to be publicly traded in the U.S. Bitmain already filed to list an IPO with the U.S. SEC in June 2019, following the expiration of its IPO listing application with the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in March. According to the SEC filing, Canaan generated $394 million in revenue in 2018, with a net income of $8.3 million. However, the designer and manufacturer of Bitcoin mining machines has experienced a total comprehensive income loss of $45.8 million in 2019. Canaan competitor opens the “world’s largest” mining farm Canaan’s biggest competitor Bitmain opened what it claimed to be the world’s largest facility for Bitcoin (BTC) mining in Rockdale, Texas, which was completed thanks to a collaboration with the Rockdale Municipal Development District and Canadian technology firm DMG Blockchain Solutions. Clinton Brown, Rockdale lead project manager for Bitmain, said that the facility’s launch is “significant to Bitmain's global expansion plans” and that the state’s stable and efficient energy resources will be fundamental to supporting what he believes is set to be the inevitable scale of growth of the mining industry.

Bitcoin Mining Hash Rate Plummets To 35 EH/s, Increasing Centralization Of Bitcoin Mining
https://preview.redd.it/7qe13wsg3yz11.jpg?width=600&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=cdb3cb372c118e1bde3b75332739ab61ca868e21 http://genesisblocknews.com/bitcoin-mining-hash-rate-plummets-to-35-eh-s-increasing-centralization-of-bitcoin-mining/ The Bitcoin mining hash rate had been exponentially increasing from 2009 through August 2018, from MH/s, to GH/s, to TH/s, to PH/s, and now EH/s. The all-time record high for Bitcoin’s mining hash rate was 62 EH/s on 26 August 2018. After that point the trend broke, and Bitcoin’s mining hash rate plateaued. This was due to a combination of two factors. First, the Bitcoin bear market brought Bitcoin’s price down from USD 20,000 to about USD 6,500, making mining much less profitable. Second, Bitcoin’s mining difficulty had been rapidly rising despite the bear market, as all the new hash power came online. The end result was there was no more room to profitably add hashing power to the Bitcoin network. It was thought that Bitcoin’s support level was solidly at USD 5,800, but that paradigm broke when Bitcoin Cash forked, the Securities and Exchange Commission began to launch catastrophic civil penalties against initial coin offerings (ICOs), and the launch of physical Bitcoin futures on Bakkt was delayed. This trifecta of extremely bad news within 1 week has brought Bitcoin’s price down to USD 4,400. This unexpected crash in Bitcoin’s price has been destructive for the mining industry. Many mining farms were right at the break even point, or perhaps even losing some money, but expecting Bitcoin to go up in the near future so they kept mining. Now Bitcoin’s hash rate has plummeted to 35 EH/s, implicitly indicating about 25 EH/s of Bitcoin mining rigs have been taken offline since they are no longer profitable due to electricity costs. This represents billions of USD of Bitcoin mining equipment going to complete waste, since Bitcoin mining rigs have no real use besides mining Bitcoin. The events unfolding in the Bitcoin mining space could spell doom for mining rig manufacturers. Now the market for rigs is completely over-saturated, and any demand for rigs has probably dried up. Mining rig manufacturers could perhaps rectify this by rapidly developing cutting-edge technology, like what Bitmain did when they recently released 7 nm rigs. Speaking of Bitmain, no matter how good their technology is, unless Bitcoin’s price rises soon they are going to experience their lowest sales numbers in history. There is a chance this will throttle their attempt at an initial public offering (IPO) on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, and if that IPO falls apart that will send more shockwaves through the crypto space. On a final note, Bitcoin mining supersites that cost hundreds of millions of USD have been popping up across the globe recently, and these have been forcing personal miners out of business, since the supersites are far more cost effective per unit of hash rate. The crash in Bitcoin’s mining hash rate we are seeing right now could very possibly be individual miners collectively shutting down their rigs, leaving just the supersites. This could drastically increase the centralization of the Bitcoin mining network, and therefore increase the centralization of Bitcoin itself. GenesisBlockNews believes it is a dangerous trend for Bitcoin’s hash rate to increasingly be in the control of a select few corporations.
The Hong Kong Agreement that has totally been breached by the Bitcoin Core Contributors.
On February 21st, 2016, in Hong Kong’s Cyberport, representatives from the bitcoin industry and members of the development community have agreed on the following points:
We understand that SegWit continues to be developed actively as a soft-fork and is likely to proceed towards release over the next two months, as originally scheduled.
We will continue to work with the entire Bitcoin protocol development community to develop, in public, a safe hard-fork based on the improvements in SegWit. The Bitcoin Core contributors present at the Bitcoin Roundtable will have an implementation of such a hard-fork available as a recommendation to Bitcoin Core within three months after the release of SegWit.
This hard-fork is expected to include features which are currently being discussed within technical communities, including an increase in the non-witness data to be around 2 MB, with the total size no more than 4 MB, and will only be adopted with broad support across the entire Bitcoin community.
We will run a SegWit release in production by the time such a hard-fork is released in a version of Bitcoin Core.
We will only run Bitcoin Core-compatible consensus systems, eventually containing both SegWit and the hard-fork, in production, for the foreseeable future. *We are committed to scaling technologies which use block space more efficiently, such as Schnorr multisig.
Based on the above points, the timeline will likely follow the below dates.
SegWit is expected to be released in April 2016.
The code for the hard-fork will therefore be available by July 2016.
If there is strong community support, the hard-fork activation will likely happen around July 2017.
The undersigned support this roadmap.

Major Cryptocurrencies Are Rallying This Morning As the Jump in Bitcoin’s Price Following the Maintenance Shutdown of BitMEX Sparks Further Concerns About Price Manipulation in Bitcoin Markets
According to cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex, short orders are nearing all-time highs. At the moment, there are 39,542 short orders outstanding on Bitfinex, the second highest level since April 12, 2018.
Bitcoin jumped 4% overnight after Hong Kong-based cryptocurrency futures exchange BitMEX shut down trading for a few hours for a regular maintenance update. In aggregate, the total market capitalization of call cryptocurrencies jumped USD$12bn in over a hour. Bitcoin commentators attribute the jump in Bitcoin to the fact that BitMEX permits traders to short Bitcoin on margin. Some other Bitcoin observers, like Alex Kruger, believe the price behavior of Bitcoin affirms concerns about price manipulation and should lead the SEC to reject the ProShares Bitcoin ETF proposal this week. Unlike the other Bitcoin ETF proposals, the ProShares Bitcoin ETF propose to own CME and CBOE Bitcoin futures.
Bitmain, the Chinese Bitcoin mining company, announced that it has invested an undisclosed amount in Lambda, a blockchain data storage startup. Bitmain hopes to help Lambda further develop its technology to launch “secure” blockchain-based infrastructure and decentralized applications. The startup, based in Singapore, recently cloised a token private sale round that included investments from FunCity Capital, BlockVC, BlueHill, Zhen Fund, and other well-known institutions.
Coinbase releases 5 core principles to help guide its release of a suite of institutional crypto products: "fair and orderly" markets, enforcing transparent market rules, offering "fair access to all market participants," disclosing listing practices and market rules publicly, and safeguarding clients "with institutional-grade infrastructure and processes."
An analysis by Cointelegraph and Chinese law firm L&Y Law Office finds irregularities in the Bitmain pre-IPO investor deck. Specifically, the wording of the document suggests DST Global has already invested in the Bitocin mining equipment company though no investment has been confirmed.
Diar Ltd, a research firm using data from CoinAPI, finds that cyrptocurrency trading volumes are shifting away from US exchanges to foreign exchanges (primarily Asian). According Diar’s analysis, Coinbase and Bitstamp have seen their total volumes drop 83% and 73% YTD.
A research firm from Slovakia has reported another scam application on the Ethereum network. Next Web reports that Lukas Stefanko, a malware researcher, found a fraudulent Ethereum app in the Androd Google Play Stores that had an offer price of USD$388.
Hyper Deflationary Monetary System (HDMS) cryptocurrencies are a new class digital money that is meant to provide mechanisms to support the increase in real buying power. In comparison to other cryptocurrencies, HDMSs have an objective to create upward price pressure on their valuations in comparison to other digital currencies. Some examples include BNB, OPTI, and BAY.
The South China Morning reports that Kripto University Center has opened the largest cryptocurrency mining site in Russia in a former Soviet fertilizer-producing lab.
The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) announced the release of a blockchain explorer on the Ethereum network. The Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP) is now hosting the explorer on the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS) with help from Bitaccess, a blockchain startup.
The Central Bank of Thailand is exploring the possibility of launching its own digital currency and expects to release phase 1 of the proof of concept by March 2019. The Central Bank-backed digital currency will be on distributed ledger technology developed by R3. In addition to R3 as a technology partner, the Thai Central Bank is also partnering with Bangkok Bank Public, Krung Thai, Siam Commercial Bank, Standard Chartered Bank (Thailand) and HSBC to bring the digital monetary currency to market.
Ripple Labs is rumored to be thinking of combining xVia, xCurrent and xRapid Solutions to solidify its market-leading positions in cross-border FX transactions. The solution will be called Convergence and will offer the benefits of speed and security while also keeping fees low.
The United Arab Emirates is preparing to launch the first Shariah-compliant cryptocurrency exchange. The crypto trading platform, First Islamic Crypto Exchange, will operate globally with the hopes of increasing the involvement of Muslims in the global cryptocurrency market.
The Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) announced it successfully used a blockchain-powered Android App to successfully trial a blockchain ticketing system for last week’s Super Cup match between Real Madrid and Atlético Madrid.
Several blockchain-powered news apps have been suspended by WeChat according Lanjinger, a local financial news outlet. The accounts were purportedly suspended after being suspected of pushing ICO and cryptocurrency “hype” which is in conflict with WeChat’s terms of services. Deepchain, Huobi News, Node Capital-backed Jinse, and CoinDaily are some of the news apps impacted by WeChat’s decisions.
https://keepingstock.net/an-open-letter-to-bitcoin-miners-c260467e1f0 Dear Bitcoin Miner, My name is Jonald, and I am a Bitcoin investor. I bought my first Bitcoins in 2013 and have been active on the Bitcointalk forum since March, 2014. I’m also a small business owner that actually uses Bitcoin for Since Bitcoin investors and miners need each other to succeed, I wanted to take a minute to reach out to you, and send a sincere message from a “real Bitcoiner”. I’ll cut right to the chase: I’m concerned. I believe we urgently need to find a scaling solution, and I believe the best solution is to increase the blocksize. At least, hear me out. Why Should You Listen to Me? There’s a huge amount of misinformation, dishonesty, and political agendas attached to the Great Scaling Debate. The situation is serious and there’s a lot at stake here. I am not beholden to any special interests. No one is paying me to write this. I am not a contributor to any Bitcoin projects, but I am quite familiar with the scaling topic because I’ve been following it for some time now, and I am knowledgeable enough to clearly understand the technical details. I’ve heard all the arguments from every side of the debate, and I want to give you my honest, unbiased, unfiltered understanding of the situation. Let’s Start At the Beginning In 2008, Satoshi Nakamoto published a paper titled Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System. Everybody knows this, but the exact title needs to be repeated because today, even the most basic facets of Bitcoin are being challenged. Should Bitcoin really be “cash” or instead “digital gold”? And if we follow Satoshi’s plan, is it really peer to peer? These questions come not so much from open-minded inquiry, but rather from a biased agenda. This would have been inconceivable a few years ago, but now things have become so political, that certain people even want to re-write the Bitcoin whitepaper. (Attempting to re-write history has always been a favorite tactic of tyrannical elites.) Satoshi’s Vision to Scale Bitcoin Regardless of “which side” of the scaling debate you are on, it should not be contested that Satoshi always planned for and advocated for simple, on-chain scaling. When asked how Bitcoin would scale to Visa-like levels, he said: Long before the network gets anywhere near as large as that, it would be safe for users to use Simplified Payment Verification (section 8) to check for double spending, which only requires having the chain of block headers, or about 12KB per day. Only people trying to create new coins would need to run network nodes. At first, most users would run network nodes, but as the network grows beyond a certain point, it would be left more and more to specialists with server farms of specialized hardware. A server farm would only need to have one node on the network and the rest of the LAN connects with that one node. The bandwidth might not be as prohibitive as you think. A typical transaction would be about 400 bytes (ECC is nicely compact). Each transaction has to be broadcast twice, so lets say 1KB per transaction. Visa processed 37 billion transactions in FY2008, or an average of 100 million transactions per day. That many transactions would take 100GB of bandwidth, or the size of 12 DVD or 2 HD quality movies, or about $18 worth of bandwidth at current prices. If the network were to get that big, it would take several years, and by then, sending 2 HD movies over the Internet would probably not seem like a big deal. Satoshi Nakamoto Source Disturbingly, this simple quote from Satoshi was moderated (deleted) from the bitcoin reddit page. I’ll revisit the censorship issue in a moment. Another important fact is that the current blocksize limit of 1mb was intended to be a temporary measure. This was something ‘everyone’ knew before the debate became politicized. One of the earliest code reviewers, Ray Dillinger, explained that he, Hal Finey, and Satoshi all agreed the limit was to be temporary. Satoshi also provided the means to raise the limit with his famous quote: It can be phased in, like: if (blocknumber > 115000) maxblocksize = largerlimit Here is one more explanation from Satoshi, in an email to Mike Hearn, about why Bitcoin never hits a scaling ceiling. Sure, Satoshi isn’t God. The point isn’t to appeal to his authority, but simply to remember that Bitcoin always had a scaling plan in place from the beginning. …But the “Core Devs” Had Other Ideas. The history of the current crop of Bitcoin Core developers has been already summarized and described elsewhere. Explanations have been given for the unproductive scaling conferences, the broken Hong Kong agreements, and so on, but it should be extremely clear to everyone, based on years of their behavior (and even their own words), that the Core group does not want to scale Bitcoin with a simple blocksize increase. In fact, they (and their supporters) have done everything in their power to prevent this, including engaging in massive censorship. Their primary arguments are as follows: It is problematic to raise the limit because it requires a hard fork, which is difficult to coordinate.Bitcoin nodes should be as inexpensive to run as possible, otherwise the decentralization of Bitcoin will be threatened.Without a constraint on the blocksize, Bitcoin won’t be secure once subsidies (block rewards) decline. None of These Arguments Have Sufficient Merit to Forestall a Blocksize Increase I am not saying the arguments are entirely without merit. Few things in life are ever 100% black-and-white. But we have to weigh the merits of these positions against the alternatives, and against other factors in the Bitcoin ecosystem. Let’s take one at a time: The “Hard Forks Are Dangerous” Myth This was a prominent talking point in 2014–2015. However, the truth is that hard forks (HF) are not necessarily dangerous, especially if they occur with a clear majority of hashing power supporting the upgraded consensus rules. The previous group of developers, including Gavin Andresen, Jeff Garzik, and Mike Hearn, all supported upgrading Bitcoin with hard forks. Initially, the discussion was whether the new maximum blocksize would be 2MB, 4MB, or 8MB. What begin as a minor difference of opinions between the miners somehow snowballed into a potent meme that consensus over scaling was going to be difficult. The developers starting adding their own opinions about hard forks, creating additional friction. Yes, it is easy to claim there is contention when you are among those being contentious! Core has no official leadership positions or governance structure. Because of this, it has been easy to justify inaction by simply concluding that “there’s no consensus”. And since they control the reference code repository, their refusal to raise the limit effects everyone else. In practice, Core does have leaders. How else can it be explained that segwit was merged into the code (even if not activated) with practically no public debate whatsoever? On a side note, prominent Core developers have denied that Core decides what code is published, and have denied there is any leadership. This is an example of the kind of constant misinformation that is being generated on a daily basis. Back to the HF issue: Many altcoins like Monero have regular hard forks. Coordination between major players in an ecosystem is not a big challenge if everyone is on the same page. So far, I have not heard of a single problem that an altcoin had in performing a network upgrade via hard fork. So, there is evidence that they can be done safely. In addition, if Core admits in their roadmap that eventually the blocksize will need to be increased, then why not do it now when it is badly needed? There is no logical reason why it would be more risky now rather than later. Decentralization Myths There are actually several myths surrounding the issue of decentralization. Let’s address the obvious ones: The most ludicrous is the “all users should be running full nodes” idea. As others have explained, there is no security provided to the network by non-mining ‘full nodes’. Only mining nodes secure and extend Bitcon’s distributed ledger. The white paper explains why most users do not need to run full nodes: It is possible to verify payments without running a full network node. A user only needs to keep a copy of the block headers of the longest proof-of-work chain, which he can get by querying network nodes until he’s convinced he has the longest chain, and obtain the Merkle branch linking the transaction to the block it’s timestamped in. He can’t check the transaction for himself, but by linking it to a place in the chain, he can see that a network node has accepted it, and blocks added after it further confirm the network has accepted it… …Businesses that receive frequent payments will probably still want to run their own nodes for more independent security and quicker verification. The idea that a lot of non-mining full nodes will make the network more decentralized (because they can make sure the miners are behaving) is erroneous, because an SPV client can already query the network’s nodes. Generally, there would only be a problem if a majority mining of nodes were colluding dishonestly, in which case Bitcoin would be already broken. A more valid concern is that as nodes become more expensive, eventually only large corporations will run nodes. It is true that node costs will increase over time as the network grows. However, storage, bandwidth, and processing capabilities are also constantly increasing. Just as important: By the time that capacity increases — lets say from 3 TPS (transactions per second) to 30 TPS — the network will be so large that it likely won’t be any less decentralized, even if it costs more to run a node. At 3000 TPS, Bitcoin would be highly dominant globally, and making use of the millions of datacenters and servers available worldwide. This was always the plan. The Alternative Vision of Bitcoin Holds Decentralization Risks That Are Worse Many users are not aware of the decentralization risks that come with the small-node/small-block vision of Bitcoin. Core’s vision for Bitcoin is to transform the peer-to-peer cash system into some kind of settlement network. While this would be a way to keep node costs minimal, most users would be economically forced off the main chain because they cannot compete with institutions for fees. They would then need to get permission from trusted third parties to transact. In my opinion, this represents a much more dangerous form of centralization than bigger blocks and expensive nodes. The Fee-Market Failure Myth The third primary argument of the small-block philosophy is that eventually, block rewards will run out, and mining fees will be the sole source of funding security. They then claim that without limiting the supply of transaction space, miners will be hopelessly caught in a tragedy-of-the-commons price war, with the users paying rock bottom fees, leading to a collapse of commercial mining. There’s a few problems with this argument. First of all, there is a natural market for every good and service in the world. There have been many price wars, but nothing with high demand ever stops being produced. The concern that the network hashrate will become too low is based on several assumptions and variables, including the number of daily transactions, the willingness of the users to wait for confirmations, the willingness of the users to pay small amounts, the behavior of the miners, the fee policies set by various wallets, the emergent consensus on acceptable fees by the mining community, and other factors, including what actually is “too low” of a network hashrate in the first place. The hypothetical failure of the natural fee market depends on all these assumptions combining into an unfavorable outcome, as well as the inability of the system to adjust itself favorably using any of these factors. But, by far the biggest reason that this argument is bunk, is that it will be decades before the majority of the subsidies actually disappear. Pure Foolishness: Overplanning the Future While Ignoring Urgent Issues Today Why implement a plan that might help Bitcoin in 20–30 years, if it requires you to damage the user experience and erode the adoption and network effect of Bitcoin, today? In the case of Bitcoin, it’s completely unnecessary to plan ahead that far, and the destructive consequences are already being seen. This is the biggest reason why Core’s position should be considered indefensible. Even if their arguments have merit, it is more important to keep Bitcoin healthy right now, stay competitive, and keep the user base growing than to prevent the problems that may or may not happen later. Even worse, those prevention plans work in direct opposition to the short term goals! It is no less insane than demanding a bedridden hospital patient, badly in need of rest, to immediately go outside and start running laps because “exercise will help you live longer”. What About Segwit? It is my understanding that at “the Hong Kong meeting”, the miners agreed to Segwit PLUS a hardfork blocksize increase because they didn’t trust the Core team enough to offer satisfactory scaling in a timely manner. I think their decision was smart. Core cannot be trusted. However, if Core changed their mind today, and agreed to the 2MB+Segwit, I would support that as a compromise to break the impasse. They seem to be unwilling to do this. Since miners are unwilling to accept segwit on its own, and since Core will not compromise, the only logical alternative is bigger blocks, which is the best option regardless. What Core Wants You may be wondering: How is it possible for people as intelligent as the Bitcoin Core developers to fail to see the obvious mistakes in their thinking? American author Upton Sinclair’s famous quote comes to mind: It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it! The Core team and their supporters want to change Bitcoin into a settlement network. They will deny this, but in my opinion, all of their actions point to this logical conclusion. This is why they are against on chain scaling, and why segwit offers as little of it as possible while supporting their “HF are bad” narrative. Additionally, I believe they also want to control public opinion by employing key individuals, by their associates and moderation policies on various platforms, and with an army of trolls. They also intimidate and punish businesses that don’t fall in line. For example, coinbase.com was delisted from bitcoin.org for supporting Bitcoin XT instead of the Core client. Despite these shenanigans, companies do support bigger blocks and on-chain scaling. Most importantly, they want to scare you, the miner, into believing that the community doesn’t really want big blocks and if that if you mine big blocks, you’ll be forked off to a worthless coin and left with worthless ASICs. Do not let them intimidate you. What the Users Want Most users just want a Bitcoin that works. They do not want slow confirmation and high fees. Most Bitcoiners that use bitcoin frequently understand the issues and support bigger blocks. Despite all the trolling and propaganda, users controlling actual coins vote overwhelmingly in favor of Satoshi’s scaling plan. The “Healthy Fee Market” is Already Unhealthy Even IF a centrally planned fee market was a good idea right now, it is being managed poorly. A “healthy” fee market should strive to provide adequate fee revenue while at the same time provide a good user experience and promote growth of the network and user base. While miner revenue is certainly adequate, the user experience is severely degraded because of slow confirmations and high fees, and this is definitely not attractive or conducive to growing the user base. If keeping the blocksize at 1mb was an experiment to see how the fee market would develop, it has already played out its usefulness. To keep fees at a level competitive with other coins, supply must catch up with demand (we must raise the blocksize) . But these developers seem to have no interest in doing so. They would rather carry on with their agenda than serve the users. What About Bitcoin As a Store-of-Value or as “Digital Gold”? The great thing about Bitcoin is that it can be both a cash-like payment system and a gold-like store of value. These two aspects enhance each other. Exposed to the propaganda that Bitcoin can’t scale as electronic cash, some users have said “that’s ok. I’m fine with Bitcoin being digital gold only”. The problem with this thinking is that Bitcoin has competition. If another coin is useful to store value AND to transact cheaply with, it severely undermines Bitcon’s appeal to investors. At the same time, it greatly dampens demand for actual usage. Sure, its possible that Bitcoin could survive in some form as digital gold, but it would be at a huge disadvantage. Small Blocks Destroy Miner Revenue At first glance, the idea that smaller blocks are bad for mining revenue may appear incorrect, since fee rates have recently exploded based on the demand of Bitcoin transactions outpacing the supply of space in the blocks. However, this trend cannot continue for long, since users will only pay so much. At the same time, new users and new demand are being shut out from the ecosystem. To use an analogy: Who makes more money — the farmer in town “A” selling milk from one cow? Or the farmer in town “B” selling milk from 8 cows? Townspeople in “A” might pay more per bottle, but they’ll only pay so much for it. They will start drinking something else, drink milk less often, or import their milk from another town. Bitcoin miners simply cannot meet the demands of users at fees they are willing to reasonably pay if blocks are restricted to 1mb… and users will find satisfactory alternatives which are quickly becoming abundant. The situation will become even worse in the long run if Core is allowed to create “second layer solutions”, because those solutions will probably not be free, and they will further absorb the money that users are willing to spend in order to transact. This will be bad for miners, and bad for network security. It will make bitcoin even less competitive, and money will leave the ecosystem. Price Always Lags Behind Fundamentals It is easy to look at a high Bitcoin price and think that everything is fine. If things were going so badly, why isn’t the price dropping? But, price doesn’t always reflect the underlying fundamentals of a market in the short term. In the long run, fundamentals always dictate the direction of the market. Daytraders are flat at the end of the day. Speculators come and go. In the end, it’s only the long term investors and the non-speculative demand that determines the price. The fundamental value of Bitcoin primarily comes from its usefulness as a payment system. If that system ceases to be useful, Bitcoin will cease to be valuable. Time To Act. Let’s Help Bitcoin Grow Again. It’s always better to fix a problem BEFORE it gets too big. As they say, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. If we wait until the Bitcoin price crashes because Bitcoin is unusable as a currency, it will be too late. We would have already lost serious momentum, marketshare, users, reputation, and merchants. This is already happening, but there is still time to act. I urge you: don’t be complacent. You are the miner. You have the power. Start signaling for bigger blocks today, and let’s make sure Bitcoin stays #1. Help Spread the Word If you’re not a miner, but a concerned investor like myself, then please spread this message far and wide, and ask the miners and pools that you know for bigger blocks.

Earlier, it was possible to obtain cryptocurrency on an ordinary PC, but over time the labor intensity of the process increased, more miners appeared, and due to the complexity of the process and the increase in the scale of production, the equipment was improved and its cost therefore increased. Mining farms produce computational activities using computer power (in most cases using video cards), the result is new "money". The majority of those who mined the currency at its very inception have already become millionaires, and even billionaires, because the exchange rate has already reached, and even exceeded the mark of 10,000 dollars. Currently, it's still profitable to organize similar mining farms on home PCs, while they are able to recoup themselves. Most of the mining farms are located in China (the reason is relatively low energy costs), as well as in Iceland. The first is a mining farm ASICMINER located in 8 miles from the central district of Hong Kong, in the Kwaichun area. This farm occupies a relatively small area, but produces a huge amount of capacity, thanks to the latest technology. The basis of the farm is the racks, ASIC chips are located on them and produce the capacities that are necessary in the production of crypto currency. The second large-scale farm is HaoBTC, located in China. This farm is not as equipped as the first, however, it produces a huge number of capacities. This company announced the launch of Hash-Ex, a new bitcoin-exchange, offering customers to buy and sell a hash rait- part of the mining network of crypto-currencies. The minimum purchase is 1 tera hash, and such an opportunity is available not only to Chinese citizens, but also to all foreign users. Xun Yue, Vice President of HaoBTC, states that they sold 10 petashash capacities, and the company itself is the only owner of equipment for currency management, in this regard does not depend on any external factors. "We probably have one of the best farms in the world. Many publications have written about us. We work in the provinces of Sichuan and Xinjiang, we have tens of thousands of Avalon A6, we also use the Antminer S7 and S9, "Xun Yue said. Initially, it seems that HaoBTC is a set of typical contracts for cloud mining, but the organization itself focuses on the fact that it has cheap electricity and does not charge funds for the use and maintenance of equipment. According to ForkLog, in winter, a new mining farm was launched in China, its capacity reaches 140,000 kilowatts. One of its founders is Bitmain Technologies. Mining farms are gaining popularity as the currency itself, China in this regard remains the leader due to its relatively inexpensive electricity, without which it would be impossible to produce any crypto currency in the world.

BitFury, a crypto mining equipment manufacturer, is now using low environmental impact refrigeration technology to maintain crypto-mining equipment at its mining farm in Tbilisi. It entails a method of immersing Bitcoin mining devices in tanks containing a non-conductive liquid to keep them cold. The system was designed and created by Allied Control Ltd., an engineering company based in Hong Kong, which was acquired by BitFury in 2015. The director of the firm, Valery Vavilov, said they first thought about this type of technology when they realized that the data centers would be used both for Internet searches and to secure Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain. Vavilov also announced that BitFury is betting that this technology will be in high demand from cloud computing companies in urban areas. This immersion cooling technology has been on the market for some time and has had several uses. The fluids have been used to cool servers, and have even been used to extinguish race car fires. The system involves submerging hardware in an open liquid coolant tank with a low boiling point. Once the equipment gets hot, the fluid boils, becoming steam which rises and condenses on a water-cooled coil, and then finally it returns to the tank. This cycle results in energy savings of 95%, depending on the company’s size, and with minimal fluid loss. These systems are gaining popularity and are likely to replace some of the techniques used by crypto mining farms, which include dipping their miners in oil tanks.
Mining with renewable energy. Bitcoin community's next potential challenge?
I attended the Inside Bitcoin conference at Hong Kong in the past two days. On the final panel with Bitcoin miners, some of them from China expressed concern that mining will soon become unprofitable because the electricity bill is too high. The two strategies proposed to counter this issue are either: 1) Increase transaction fee; or 2) Use renewable energy for mining. On the other hand, representative from "Genesis Minding" said that their company is still making profit, having mining farms in Eastern Europe, Iceland, U.S., and Canada (with low electricity bill). On a personal note, I have questions regarding renewable energy for mining. There are only 21 million bitcoins to mine so it will run out eventually, meanwhile the infrastructure required to harness renewable energy is very expensive. Given this situation, would it still be profitable for miners to adopt renewable energy before all he bitcoins get mined out? What do you think? Adopt renewable energy or increase transaction fee?

What kind of problems do ordinary people face when they try to purchase cryptocurrency?
The Ubcoin Market team prepared a new article on how difficult it might be to buy cryptocurrency for the first time. We made a short analysis of exchanges, ICOs, P2P platforms and mining as means of purchasing cryptocoins for the first time. The analysis concluded that all these methods have drawbacks. Ubcoin Market is designed to be a platform that facilitates the process of becoming a crypto investor by giving the ability to people to sell their possessions for cryptomoney. If you need to buy some greens for your dinner, you go to the grocery store. If you need some fish you go to the fish market. If you need a book you go to the nearest bookshop or shop online using Amazon. But what if you want to buy cryptocurrency? Where do you go? 2017 appeared to be the year of ICO. Unlike most predictions the cryptocurrency hype train is still on the rails. One can see that the fluctuations of Bitcoin are keeping the whole topic on the boil with increasingly more people becoming interested in cryptocurrency. Many people consider cryptocurrency as an investment tool or believe enticing stories of an easy and lucrative investment. The new aspiring crypto investors often are not only from the upper or business class or so called active ‘classical’ investors, but also includes non-classical grassroots investors. Many people from various backgrounds keep wondering how they can jump on the cryptocurrency bandwagon and become part of the new trend. Alas, there are more questions than answers. Exchanges The first and most probable choice an aspiring crypto investor might make is choosing an exchange. An exchange is where one can buy cryptocoins for fiat money. The mechanism seems pretty easy and similar to the typical trading on mainstream fiat exchanges. However, with cryptocurrency various difficulties arise. First of all, the boom of cryptocurrencies over the last few years induced the establishment of numerous exchanges all over the world and they keep rising in number. A number of such exchanges are fraudulent and may close without notice, taking all your money. The main problem here is that for now in many countries there are no external regulators for these crypto-exchanges. In the worst scenario you won’t be able to address your loss to any governmental body to obtain your money back. Therefore, choosing a safe and appropriate exchange to store your cryptocoins is not a straightforward task. Moreover, in many countries cryptocurrency in general and crypto-exchanges remain a grey area for legislation. Although, some countries have already articulated their attitude towards cryptocurrency negatively or positively. For example, China keeps shutting down everything related to cryptocurrency. The government has already banned ICO and ordered to close all domestic Bitcoin exchanges, what BTCC did. The authorities go further and shoot down the access to any overseas exchanges and platforms. One of the local banks of Hong Kong even suspended a company account of Hong Kong-based cryptocurrency exchange. If authorities shut down an exchange, very little can be done for customers of the exchange platform. Meaning the customers may irreversibly lose their cryptocurrency due to the closure of the exchange by authorities. Barely anything can help a private customer to escape the same destiny if his or her account is somehow related to cryptocurrency transactions. Japan in the past has had a much less hostile cryptocurrency environment compared to other Asian countries. Nevertheless, Japan appears to be reconsidering its policy towards exchanges after a massive breach in one of the biggest Japanese cryptocurrency exchanges. Initial Coin Offering(s) The second feasible way to obtain some cryptocurrency is to participate in an ICO. According to statistics nearly 350 fully completed ICO were carried out in 2017. The number of ICOs this year so far stands at 92. In addition to the previous stated amounts of ICO, there were also numerous ICO that either failed or never intended to fulfill their projected promises in order to steal investors’ money. The first question is how to navigate through the ocean of ICO and how to decide whether an altcoin is worth your investments. Even if you’ve researched and studied about cryptocurrency there are many dynamics and unknowns. For example, as a small private investor you cannot bear all the risks as a big investment firm can. On the other hand you will still need to use an exchange to procure altcoins since they are usually not traded for fiat money. After the first step, you then have to exchange your tokens for fiat money or the cryptocurrency that is actually accepted through the exchange of fiat money. Unfortunately, the convoluted process is only one of the issues of exchanges. For example, China banned ICO. Furthermore, Japan is not particularly friendly towards the new way of raising capital for startups. After a series of fraudulent ICO in Austria, the authorities in Vienna are now trying to involve Interpol to track down dishonest crypto-entrepreneurs. Austria is working on the restriction of transactions and any activities in the field of cryptocurrencies. The USA has a generally friendly regulation policy towards cryptocurrency. However, since the US Securities and Exchange Commission equated ICO to an IPO, the companies issuing tokens and also exchanges trading them are subject to the same laws. That implies that that all transactions must be registered as transactions with stocks or securities. The US neighbor, Canada, holds the same positions on policy. Canadian authorities are considering the potential applicability of Canadian securities laws to cryptocurrencies and related trading and marketplace operations. The overall result for ordinary people, willing to purchase and trade tokens, is that all these transactions have to be registered with corresponding governmental or regulatory bodies, but no such procedures have been adapted for the crypto market yet. Additionally, such transactions are going to be taxed in the future similar to security transactions. One should be extremely cautious when taking part in an ICO. One can very easily find himself involved with a scam ICO resulting in a loss of funds. One also must keep in mind that even if the entrepreneur you trusted with your money is, in fact, honest, your activity can become subject to taxation or other laws, which could render your venture illegal. However, there is a third way. Peer-to-Peer Platforms With the spread of cryptocurrency and as the number of people wanting to purchase cryptocurrency grows, the demand has led to the rise in platforms that conduct crypto-to-fiat exchange offline. Most well-known platform is Local Bitcoins. Usually, if you are interested in the topic and join various crypto-related chats and forums, they find you on their own. The most commonly exchanged coin on such peer-to-peer offline platforms is Bitcoin, however sometimes they offer transactions with other popular altcoins. If you decide to use such a service, you may find yourself entering some real life detective or thriller film. The scenario may unfold itself something similar to this: your online counterpart suggests an offline meeting place, hopefully, a public one. The location is where you will exchange your fiat money for some crypto-tokens. Now you have to use some muscle and drag a big sports bag stuffed with fiat cash, across the city to meet your contact. Once you meet, you verify each other’s identity and signal the successful transaction through numbers or QR codes on your mobile devices. In the end, if you are a fan of thriller films with briefcases stuffed with cash, this would be a decent way to roleplay such. However, in reality, the security and safety of your money and your own self are extremely questionable when employing this method of buying cryptocurrency. Moreover, if the transaction wasn’t fraudulent and everything went smoothly, then you still will face the question ‘what do I do next?’. And the paths are more or less the same. You either go to an exchange and have to cope with all the previously stated problems, or you wait some time to switch sides and become a ‘dealer’ yourself. Mining The last, and for many reasons, the least feasible way to obtain cryptocurrency is mining. Mining was the initial way of getting tokens. It was a bonanza for early miners, but nowadays the entry threshold is too high. The mining boom a few years ago hugely impacted the market of graphics cards pushing the prices to their highest points resulting in doubled or tripled prices for the most popular devices. Some of the biggest producers on the market even launched new series of specialized hardware tailored to mining certain cryptocurrency. The costs per one ‘mining farm’ and electricity now are covered, at best, within 6–9 months, compared to 3–4 months at the beginning of the more recent ‘mining fever’. Moreover, it is hard to compete with ‘mass-mining’ in countries like China. Over the last year Chinese bitcoin miners made up over 50 percent of the worldwide mining population, building farms with high capacities. So as for now, this hype-train is way out of reach for private aspiring crypto-investors. Up to this moment, everything related to cryptocurrencies was more about it’s first part — ‘crypto’. But how can one actually derive value and use it as means of exchange for benefits in everyday life? Our team understands all the risks and issues in addition to the interests of aspiring crypto-investors. Therefore, we decided to create an advanced platform that is transparent, easy to use, easy to understand and ultimately a simple way into the world of cryptocurrency. Our project is called the Ubcoin Market. A platform where people can purchase and sell real goods in a secure and simple manner using our specialized eretheum based altcoin.

How Bitcoin Mining Works. Where do bitcoins come from? With paper money, a government decides when to print and distribute money. Bitcoin doesn't have a central government. With Bitcoin, miners use special software to solve math problems and are issued a certain number of bitcoins in exchange.
