We have been pretty much excited about the last two weeks for the cryptosphere regarding price stability, a fact in which Bitcoin (BTC) has played a crucial role. The leader of the sector has managed to maintain above the mark of the 6,300 dollars, and this besides granting the coin with green numbers, has influenced as well a significant part of the market including Litecoin (LTC), TRON (TRX), Cardano (ADA) and others. However, recent news on the Mt.Gox case could potentially change the current panorama and turn it into a different story.

Concerning this, let’s recall Mt.Gox was a colossal exchange that had to declare on bankruptcy back in 2014, after the robbery of 700,000 BTC with pirate activities. The event caused a huge controversy back then as all of the creditors, both corporate and individuals, were left hanging by a thread as their funds were simply not reimbursed.

In this sense, a Tokyo court recently unlabeled the bankruptcy and now the institution at issue is preparing to refund creditors with all of the money that was stolen, a fact that could have a repercussion on Bitcoin’s price. Let’s see why.

From FOMO to FUD

If you have ever wondered how did Bitcoin manage to stay on the top for so long without even blinking in front of the plenty of other options that now exist, the answer is quite simple, Bitcoin knows how to create a bubble, more than anyone else.

The Bitcoin bubble is a phenomenon that despite the conditions of the market the crypto continues to have an increasing volume and even some highs at a certain level. And let’s recall that Bitcoin passed from being valued at just a couple of boxes to having a value of thousands of dollars, and this, in a teeny tiny period.

This is actually a thing not to be surprised by, as many companies that we know such as Apple passed from just a tiny value to being a multi-million dollar company as well. However, in the case of the crypto world, things are just a little different. For instance, we can name the FOMO phenomenon, FOMO means “Fear Of Missing Out”, the general trend of the crypto community.

The entire Bitcoin bubble has been built with an obvious FOMO, Bitcoin started to increase its value and as soon as it happened, the community started to feel the need to buy and retain the money with the hope of obtaining a way bigger earn than the initial investment later on. Truth be told, with Bitcoin we never know what the ceiling is, and a proof of that is the thousand of holders that decided to sell at $7, $300 or $2,000.

Like this, knowing the FOMO sensation, the question is, will Bitcoin always manage to keep this generalized trend in their community? Well, as FOMO exists so its counterpart, and that’s exactly what FUD is.

FUD means Fear Uncertainty and Doubt, one of the most common sentiments in the latest crypto community. Truth be told, it is actually hard to believe that Bitcoin would experience a FUD phenomenon, but that’s just because we always expect the leader to continue its growth.

But what will happen once 700,000 BTC would be paid to all of the MT.Gox creditors? One can be sure that Bitcoin price will collapse, people will start to have Fear Uncertainty and Doubt, and that is precisely what might break the price of the token to dramatic levels. Will another crypto make an appearance in the sector as the new ‘gold’, well, that remains a question. Stay tuned.

Integrating blockchain technology is fast becoming a necessity for enterprise ventures and small or large businesses, but with a growing number of choices in the tech revolution, it’s difficult to pick a direction without feeling overwhelmed or taken advantage of. This is where BEHOLD THE CRYPTOPRENEURS comes in.

Private keys, the myth of anonymity, and the battle against anarchist ideology are only a few of the difficult challenges faced by businesses that want to incorporate blockchain into their culture. Author Dennis H. Lewis guides the reader through those challenges and helps them discover the true potential of investing in this new economic paradigm.

Every business has pain points that must be overcome in order to branch out and thrive in an ever-changing commercial environment. Blockchain has real world solutions and cryptopreneurs are not limited to the cryptocurrencies they invest in but rather how they seize economic and technological opportunities to make it work for them.

Innovation, trust, and solutions can differentiate your business from all the noise, but without a solid marketing plan, a cryptopreneur can have the best idea and never get far. Remember: a million great ideas times zero market presence equals zero success.

Investors want to know there is public interest and enthusiasm in a project before they commit any money to it. As a cryptopreneur, you are tasked with generating that interest from the…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.

When Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled Bitcoin to the world, the dream was always for Bitcoin to serve as a new universal currency.  It would be free from the bureaucracy of governments.  And free from the tyranny of the old-world financial cartels.  Although the dream hasn’t yet materialized, it comes closer and closer with each passing day.

One of the biggest roadblocks for Bitcoin has been scalability.  At a speed of approximately 7 transactions per second, Bitcoin lags behind other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and global payment processors like Visa.  Many expect the lightning network to have a positive impact on Bitcoin’s TPS but until that comes to fruition, mass adoption will likely need another significant development.

Libra Currency Announcement

One development that could help pave the way toward mass adoption is the launch of the Libra currency.  Libra is expected to go live during the first half of 2020 according to Facebook’s June announcement.  According to Facebook, Libra will make sending money online cheaper and faster.  It will also have a hand in improving access to financial services, especially for the unbanked.  Given Facebook’s global reach, including many third world countries, providing financial access to the unbanked could provide a huge spark to global economies.  Additionally, it could provide the growth spark that cryptocurrency needs.

Facebook’s most popular messenger, WhatsApp, has approximately 1.5 billion monthly users.  This application is…
