2020 is just around the corner and soon Americans will be choosing the leader of the free world (again). And while most of the red white and blue-blooded patriots of the US will waffle between the inevitable Republican and Democratic candidatesa few of us will be looking into the alternatives offered by various third parties.

Lucky for us, one of those third-party candidates have already come forward. Internet security guru and champion of the cryptoverse, John McAfee, has officially thrown his hat in the ring. Running as a Libertarian, McAfee is making headlines and lighting up the twitter feeds with a brand new political platform designed to bring awareness to blockchain technologies while securing the civil liberties of our internet personas.

And it couldn’t come soon enough.

As we watch our malevolent overlords rip apart what’s left of net neutrality, it has become increasingly difficult to find a voice defending the people’s right to a free and open internet experience.

Between Silicon Valley collectively banning conservative opposition to their progressive agendas, and conservative politicians granting corporations ever intrusive access to your personal information, it seems we are left deciding between two sides of the same tyrannical coin. Whether liberal or conservative, the leaders of the two-party system seem to want the same thing: control of your data. A McAfee White House may flip that coin on its head.

But for investors in the altcoin space, there may be a better reason to cheer the candidacy of John McAfee; There is perhaps no better platform for enlightening the masses about the benefits of blockchain tech. And the coin(s) to benefit from an increased interest in cryptocurrency are likely already hodl’d in our digital wallets.

If you weren’t already, it may behoove you to take note of the coins pumped by this eccentric candidate as we get closer to election season.

Currently, McAfee remains vocal about his predictions concerning Bitcoin (BTC), but he has also recently expressed interest in Swarm (SWM) and decentralized exchanges like EOSfinex and the Binance DEX. Going forward, these coins and exchanges may deserve a second look from each of us as McAfee expands his influence into the media circus surrounding the 2020 presidential election.

In 2016 John McAfee was on the presidential stage helping define the debate surrounding cybersecurity. This time around he will introduce Bitcoin (BTC) to a curious public ready for a new investment strategy. With Rob Loggia, his presidential campaign manager, already laying the foundation for his historic 2020 run, McAfee stands ready to attack the media with a non-stop 2-year crypto-blitz of valuable information on the importance of his favorite decentralized coins.

Despite the seriousness of his rhetoric, McAfee has made it clear that he does not expect to win the presidency. The purpose of his running for president is to bring decentralization and the benefits of cryptocurrency into the American consciousness. To McAfee (and to investors in the cryptoverse) getting your vote is less important than raising your awareness… and perhaps the price of your favorite altcoin.

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.

KaratGold Background

SonicX and Dash Could Challenge Facebook’s Libra for Global Payments Market Share

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…

In the hyper-competitive world of online casinos, operators are always looking for ways to stand out from the crowd. The most usual methods include using distinctive branding, offering generous bonuses and making sure that they are on all of the major so-called affiliate sites where players can compare and contrast casinos’ different offerings.

But now a whole new generation of casinos are starting to emerge – ones whose key difference isn’t what and how you play, but more in how you pay.

The rise and rise of the cryptocurrency casino is seen by many as the next logical step in a world that is slowly but surely starting to accept that Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, et al. are certainly here to stay.

Of course, it’s the first of these cryptocurrencies that has really grabbed the headlines and led the way with its meteoric performance in 2017 when it seemed like its $20,000 value was just the start of the story. Admittedly, this was short-lived and the value quickly fell back to a more sustainable level but, if it achieved one thing, it was to cement this exciting new kind of currency in the consciousness of the general public.

Why Bitcoin and online casinos are the perfect partners

In many ways, it’s the perfect partnership between Bitcoin and online casinos with multiple benefits for both.

The first of…
