As crypto users, we know for a fact that one of the most valuable tools for us to handle is Crypto-to-Cash converters, a field that seems to be a wider one every day. However, not all of the time these converters are that trustable and that’s precisely the moment where we start to question what’s the perfect place to go to when we want to access trustable information of the prices that specific crypto trades can give us in our fiat currency.

In this sense, nothing says more ‘trustable’ than Google does, or at least that’s what most of us believe when we want to search on the internet, let’s say, anything. And guess what?

One of the things that we can search right now on Google is the price in cash that we would receive by trading certain crypto coins, a brilliant move made by Google that many might consider a little daunting for the search giant in the end. Let’s see how it goes.

Google’s crypto-to-cash converter

Google’s ability to convert from Bitcoin to cash is not actually that new. In fact, we all have been enjoying the latest feature of the giant for a couple of months now.

But truth be told, the possibility of extrapolating this to other cryptos in the market was actually not so close, or at least that’s what we thought, which is the main reason why we almost lost our minds finding out of the adding of altcoins such as Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), and Bitcoin Cash (BTH).

As a matter of fact, you can always search on Google for any crypto-related conversion that you want to have, but what the company has done differently in order to make it stand out is that once you search for a specific crypto, let’s say for instance ‘Bitcoin’, then it immediately opens its converter and give you the rate for that coin, something similar to what happens once you type and search for ‘translate’.

As of now, in the cases of Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BTH), the only thing we need to do is to type the name and start searching, the first result it shows will be the Crypto-to-Cash converter of Google. However, in the case of Ethereum (ETH), the process varies a little bit as the user would need to type the name followed by the request “currency converter”.

Controversy with the newest feature

Not only in the field of crypto but in general terms, one of the most criticized things of Google despite the incredible help that represents for all of us, is that the company seems to know a little too much about ourselves, and to say the least, that is precisely what crypto users tend to avoid.

This is the main reason why a great part of the community seems to be concerned about what would be the true intentions of Google with its latest move. Is it possible that they want to track which are the most tradable coins? Or is it about them building their very own crypto? Well, for now, it just seems like a helpful tool, we all will have to wait and see. So stay tuned.

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
