The Search For The Next Bitcoin (BTC) Is On And Siacoin (SC) Looks Like A Promising Alternative

Published

Siacoin

Bitcoin has no doubt become the most popular cryptocurrency in the world for numerous reasons such as the fact that it was the first cryptocurrency, and it introduced blockchain technology. However, the most popular reason for traders is the fact that it was less than a dollar when it first came out but a few years later, it has grown so much that it is now worth more than $10,000 dollars. So much so that people have started looking for the next such currency that can deliver such gains in the future.

Bitcoin is currently the most valuable crypto coin in the market and its price tag has an all-time high of almost $19,000 although its price looks like it will end the year on the bearish trend that it is currently on. Other than trading, blockchain has been the biggest win for the industry because all other cryptos are based on this technology.

Investors are currently looking for the next cryptocurrency that has the potential of delivering gains that are as high as those that have so far been offered by Bitcoin and this leads us to Siacoin (SC). This is an altcoin that was created out of the need for a better cryptocurrency that would overcome the problems of Bitcoin. It was created by Luke Champine and David Vorick whose aim was to lead the second wave of cryptos.

Unfortunately, the mission was not exactly a success and that is evident by the fact that it did not manage to attract as much hype as they had hoped. They also encountered some problem but while Siacoin is not a perfect crypto, it is worth noting that they did manage to build something quite unique with some noteworthy improvements from the original.

After observing bitcoin, the two developers embarked on placing their focus on file storage as one of the solutions for decentralization in the cryptocurrency industry. Sia was created based on the idea that the internet is constantly growing and it continues to grow but the fact that this translates to more files to be hosted means growth will be limited by storage. Cloud storage is a good solution but one that does not fully solve the problem of storage.

Vorick and Champine came up with an innovative method through which data can be stored on devices such as PCs, tablets, and smartphones that we already own. This means Sia’s blockchain technology might in the future turn your device into a cloud storage solution. The idea is that one person who has storage needs can purchase storage space from another person with ample storage space and is looking to lease the said space.

The Siacoin currency is expected to support this kind of technology and this means that it will have a special use. The fact that it aims to solve an existing problem also means that the cryptocurrency might end up gaining a lot of value in the future.

META 1 Coin Trust Announces Commission to Study Global Persecution of Cryptocurrency Projects

Boca Raton, Florida, 27th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

Collaborating with Other Cryptocurrencies, META 1 Tackles Injustice and Human Rights 

META 1 Coin Trust has announced plans to identify, research and document instances of governmental overreach in cryptocurrency cases globally, as part of its ongoing efforts to advance human rights and individual freedom. 

According to Robert P. Dunlap, Executive Trustee of META 1 Coin Trust, “The malicious attacks on crypto projects globally by overzealous government agencies must be documented and publicized to protect the individual liberties of META 1 Coin holders, as well as issuers and holders of other cryptocurrencies.” He added, “The decentralized, non-jurisdictional reality of crypto has left government agencies often unable to fully litigate cases and the general public should not have to continue suffering due to excessive overreach as agencies clamor to save face.”

META 1 Coin Trust is led by Robert P. Dunlap and Nicole Bowdler, who are both committed to pushing back against unimpeded global persecution of cryptocurrencies. By calling attention to years of organized efforts by government agencies to specifically target cryptocurrency projects, their hope is that the public will see and demand an end to these unjust violations of individual liberty. 

Specific grievances which motivated this initiative include grave concerns over government agencies’ obstruction of individuals’ livelihoods, defamation of character, and libelous false accusations which could tarnish the names of individuals for years to come, long after legal actions…

GDA Capital in Conversation About the Future of Digital Assets at Global Family Office Summit

Published

on

GDA Capital organized the quarterly Global Family Office Summit this week. The event was held virtually with a number of technology leaders and high net worth investors who discussed issues such as education, trust and responsibility to give back. Among these were insightful conversations with Dubai-based Dalma Capital’s CEO Zachari Cefaratti, Holt Fintech Accelerator founder Brendan Hold Dunn, Global Data Sentinel CEO and White City Ventures Chairman of the Board Shahal Khan, and Elitium CEO Raoul Milhado, among others. Participants were also given access to off-market opportunities to invest in novel technologies.

Will Bartlett, GDA Capital’s Director of Research, headlined the event by focusing on tech in the modern economy, and identifying six sectors where new technologies can make a lasting impact: robotics, space, biotech, machine learning, quantum computing, and blockchain. In the context of blockchain, he discussed how digital assets are a hedge against traditional financial markets. “Cryptocurrencies have no exposure to stock market returns, macroeconomic factors, or returns of currencies and commodities,” Bartlett said.

More so, Bartlett believes that new models for digital assets such as DigitalBits’ branded stablecoins are key to the development of the field. These currencies replace traditional rewards and loyalty point systems that are commonly used by household brands by porting them to the blockchain. Meanwhile, they rely on brand…

Chainwire Launches Blockchain-Focused Automated Press Release Distribution Service

Published

TEL AVIV, Israel, 13th October, 2020, // ChainWire //

MarketAcross, a world leader in blockchain public relations and marketing services, is pleased to announce the launch of Chainwire, an automated press release distribution service which provides guaranteed coverage and in-depth reports. Chainwire will be a one-stop-shop for the distribution of press releases in the cryptocurrency and blockchain sector. The launch marks the first time that advertisers can reach leading publications in the crypto media with the click of a button. 

While most industries have some kind of PR newswire service, the cryptocurrency sector has become a victim of its own rapid pace of growth over recent years. Since the ICO boom of 2017, there has been a proliferation of blockchain and crypto-focused projects, exchanges, investment firms, and marketing agencies, along with niche news and informational content sites. 

However, the infrastructure to connect this complex ecosystem has been slow to come up to speed, meaning that existing newswire services don’t reach their target audience. It’s estimated that one in five people own cryptocurrencies, so there is currently a significant missed opportunity to reach a massive global readership. 

As a newswire service dedicated to the crypto and blockchain space, Chainwire aims to address this gap. Press releases are distributed to leading publications, offering guaranteed coverage to reach audiences worldwide. The system is integrated with publishers and blogs, enabling accurate reporting via a user-friendly dashboard. It also…
