In the crypto sphere, a significant part of the validation that specific coins receive come from the endorsement or the advocation of particular figures related to the industry. In this sense, there’s not a way of mentioning such actions and not linking them to John McAfee, the individual that for excellence have been advocating, predicting, and in many occasions, favoring the behavior of a variety of coins available in the market.

The mentioned businessman is the face behind the successful and very much adopted antivirus and antimalware software dubbed McAfee. John, for a time now, has been an individual with a strong presence in the cryptocurrency market, being responsible of some of the most accurate predictions and opinions in the sector; a fact that without any doubt has granted him a large group of followers and substantial credibility.

His opinions never go unnoticed by the crypto community. In fact, he is nothing but controversial and most of the times he manages to get the great attention of the industry and its followers. This time, he has done it once again by announcing he will place a bid on 2020 presidential to spread the word of the crypto environment. Let’s see how it goes!

The announcement

Two days ago Twitter almost collapsed when John McAfee published on his official account that he would run for president in the 2020-2024 term to show his support for the crypto sector and spread his knowledge among the U.S. regarding this topic.

The tweet reads:

Let’s recall this is not the first time McAfee runs for president. In fact, back in 2016, he bid as well, but he lost the chance of being the candidate of the Libertarian Party against the former governor of New Mexico, Gary Johnson.

Regarding the previous bid, McAfee mentioned he failed in not being fully connected with the community, a fact that he assures if he would have approached differently the results would be others. The same way, in relation to his future bid in 2020 he also tweeted a Youtube video showing his last campaign and a message saying that that was the way it looked his pitch back in 2016 and that for 2020 the community can wait for a similar tone but with a subject matter entirely focused on cryptocurrencies.

The initial tweet of June 3rd has accumulated over 2,000 comments so far on the social network, and McAfee has replied to almost all of the people expressing his thankfulness for the responses. Additionally, rumors are heard that a token of the market has offered a donation of almost 400 dollars for the campaign, so the whole thing looks pretty good for McAfee.

Nonetheless, the controversial influencer of the crypto world expressed in a tweet that he knows he won’t have a chance of winning, but as he thinks, “what truly changes America is not the president, but the process of creating one”, so just with the opportunity of being a part of the process there’s a platform from where he can stand to fully support cryptocurrencies.

The Impact of SEC Regulation and the Crypto Bear Market on Ethereum

Way back in June 2017, it was beginning to look inevitable that the flippening would occur and Ethereum would take over the top spot of cryptocurrency market caps. With smart contract capabilities and an order of magnitude more potential applications than Bitcoin, everybody was keen to jump on the Ethereum bandwagon.

Of course, a lot has changed since then.

The speculation-fueled bull run that culminated at all-time highs in late 2017 for Bitcoin and January 2018 for altcoins was unsustainable. Talk of a global paradigm shift appears laughably premature in hindsight.

Today, prices have collapsed across the entire market, with Ethereum itself breaking below $100 last December after all-time highs of $1.4k just 11 months prior. Although a mini-recovery has ensued in early 2019, the situation continues to look bleak and the reputation of cryptocurrencies for the general public is still far from stellar.

Prominent blockchain expert Peter Du, the founder of Du Capital, recently explained the crux of the problem, saying:

“Cryptocurrencies, which were once the new darling and dream of investors have now taken a backseat, given the current crypto blizzard. To be sure, maintaining hundreds of billions of dollars in valuations supported by unsecured coin issuance was…

At this time last year, Bitcoin was reaching its all-time high price. However, the whole year past, its price declined by 80% since then. BTC speculators or investors don’t seem to be getting tired of its “disruptive” price falling. And a lot of people that missed out on the late 2017 and early 2018 price hike, jump in the crypto world, expecting to make quite a fortune when it hits its former levels. But the story just goes the opposite way. So is it possible to profit from BTC investment? In the following part, we will explore 3 types of profitable BTC investment.

Measure 3 Common Types of BTC Investment

  1. Invest in BTC Spot and Wait for Appreciation

Bitcoin spot trade might be the first transaction type that most investors will opt for when they just entered the cryptocurrency area. Investors can directly buy BTC with fiat currencies. The only way to earn money with BTC spot is waiting for its price rising. Unless you are a BTC believer and willing to wait for its appreciation in several years, you should turn to another type of investment.

  1. Exchange BTC to USDT and Earn the Spread

USDT is the cryptocurrency version of US dollar and also considered as a stable cryptocurrency. Generally speaking, when the BTC, as well as other cryptocurrencies, drop, USDT may perform…

UpStake, an exciting cryptocurrency project officially launched last year, is all set to take the global crypto community by storm. Unlike hundreds of crypto ventures that fail to make any impression, UpStake is dedicated to delivering a stable digital currency that will pave the way for mass adoption around the world.

London, UK – Jan 16, 2019

London-based crypto startup UpStake is well on its way to revolutionising the global cryptocurrency industry by eliminating many of the limitations that have stifled growth for years. Launched in 2018, this promising initiative is focused on ensuring mass adoption of cryptocurrency by providing a usable, stable form of digital currency to the crypto and blockchain communities across the globe.

This proposed blockchain ecosystem is built around UpStake tokens (UPS), the platform’s proprietary token. UpStake asserts that these tokens have been designed to increase in value over time, and set the stage to build great products and services which result in better user experiences.

In order to ensure continuous increase in value of UPS over time, UpStake has built a Proof-of-Burn model that burns a certain percentage of tokens sold through their exchange.  This model helps create the value that contributes to the ever-growing price point of the token. It not only enables the token price to…
