The chief goal of Reddcoin (RDD) is to become the epitome of cryptocurrency use on social media platforms for transactions such as tipping and other microtransactions. The current low value of the coin and the high supply means that it is ideal for the earlier mentioned micro-transactions. RDD is currently valued at $0.0067. The circulating supply is the entire total supply of 28.808 Billion RDD. There is no RDD locked up in escrow as is the case with XRP.

Reddcoin can so far be used to tip on Telegram, Twitter, and Reddit. The tipping is usually done when one member makes a noteworthy contribution to a discussion. This, in turn, promotes discussions with substance and a platform where ideas are shared.

But why say Reddcoin is dead?
Answer: The entry of other cryptocurrencies you can tip with on social media.

There are more cryptocurrency projects realizing the potential in having crypto being used on social media platforms.

Ripple (XRP): Any member of the XRP and Ripple SubReddit communities, has been tipped or has tipped a fellow Rippler on the platform. There is an XRP tip bot that can be utilized. Further instructions on how to use the tip bot can be found on the XRP Tip Bot Website.

Nano (NANO): Twitter has a Nano Tip bot that can be used to tip fellow Twitter members on its platform.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH): The tipping aspect of BCH is not active yet since the lowest amount of BCH that you can send is 546 Satoshi. However, CoinGeek and nChain are joining the ‘Miner’s Choice’ initiative to allow miners to have the freedom to determine if they can offer free transactions and also to lower the sending limit to 0.00000001 BCH. This means that BCH can soon be used for tipping since the transactions levels have been lowered and free transactions will also become a reality.

What next for Reddcoin if it is to fight off the competition?

The next move for Reddcoin, its team members, and fans, is simply to market the coin harder and promote its adoption in the currently available platforms of Reddit, Telegram, and Twitter. More crypto enthusiasts need to be made aware of the brilliant qualities available on Reddcoin such as the RDD ID that will allow the seamless use of your Reddcoin identity on all social media platforms. You can then tip from this one ID or even send microtransactions using ti. This will indeed be the game changer for the Reddcoin project moving forward.

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos has made numerous headlines recently due to his overly-publicized divorce, which shows all signs of being one of the most expensive ones — if not THE most expensive one — in modern history. According to estimates, it might cost him as much as $70 billion, which will make his soon-to-be-ex-wife the richest woman in human history.

However, as the process continues to unfold, many have started wondering if things may have ended up differently for Bezos if he turned to Bitcoin for help.

Bitcoin as a divorce tool?

In the last several years — since Bitcoin and other cryptos hit fame — many have started turning to BTC during their divorce proceedings. In fact, it can even be said that using the largest cryptocurrency in this way has become a new trend. The trend has been gaining so much strength that numerous law companies started including advice on what to do in regards to Bitcoin as part of their websites.

However, while the trend has been picking up in recent years, it is nowhere near as easy as it might seem. For example, if there is even a suspicion of a spouse having undisclosed holdings appears during the divorce process, it might be enough to impact the final decision of the judge. In other words, even if there is a complete lack of evidence, but…

In recent years, digital cash systems known as cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Litecoin have exploded into the public eye. A blend of cash and stocks, their use and value has grown exponentially. In 2017, the IRS decided to focus great effort on taxing them. In theory, this should be as simple as calculating taxes on any other type of property, bond, or other assets. Cryptocurrency, however, presents a unique challenge. The full extent of one person’s crypto activity can stretch across dozens of platforms and take a variety of different forms. This makes it difficult to gather all of this information cohesively, much less begin the seemingly- complicated process of reporting it.

These three tips should help anyone looking to legally report their crypto activity to figure out where to start.

Documentation is key!

There are dozens of different “exchanges” individuals can use to change their cash into crypto. When the flat currency is changed into cryptocurrency at the exchange, you establish your cost basis. This makes this data crucial when you begin the process of reporting.  Those who have used a variety of different exchanges should keep detailed records of everywhere that they made trades. Once tax season arrives, most exchanges will allow users to view their entire trading history with that exchange. This information will be necessary later to complete taxes.
