    How far will cryptocurrrencies go for security?

    Zcash go nuclear to generate random numbers to ensure security of digital coin in latest step by cryptocurrencies gain acceptance
    The security of cryptocurrencies is an issue for some people. The founders of digital coins know that stories about exchanges being hacked damage their image.

    For cryptocurrencies to be commonly used by the general public they must gain trust. The same trust that people have in the bank coins and notes they use to buy goods and services.

    The developers of privacy-obsessed digital coin zcash have gone to unique (and extreme) lengths to ensure their digital currency’s security.

    Zcash used nuclear waste from the infamous Chernobyl power station to create low-level radiation. This was converted into random numbers to generate zcash’s public cryptography parameters.

    Samsung joins cryptocurrency bandwagon

    Samsung reveals plans to create mining chips as it officially enters cryptocurrency arena
    Samsung have announced that their foundry business makes chips designed for cryptocurrency mining. The move was reported by Korean newspaper The Bell who revealed the chips will be application-specific integrated circuit (Asic). It marks the first official move by Samsung into cryptocurrencies.

    Garrick Hileman, a cryptocurrency researcher from the University of Cambridge, said the move indicates that Samsung does not see Bitcoin as a bubble that is about to burst.

    Samsung’s foundry business is currently engaged in the manufacturing ocryptocurrency mining chips

    Bitcoin may be the biggest and most popular cryptocurrency today. However, it has been joined by many others over the years with new coins being launched regularly. Samsung’s chip manufacturing decision is clearly influenced by more than Bitcoin. The combined market value of cryptocurrencies has gone from less than $20bn to more than $540bn making it impossible to ignore.

    The South Korean company’s semiconductor business is booming. It overtook Intel to become the world’s biggest chipmaker last year. Asic chips are designed to carry out a single task, which in this case is mining.

    Cryptocurrency will play a big role in our lives in the future

    The growth of cryptocurrency and blockchain
    The interest in cryptocurrency is often referred to as the ‘digital gold rush’ attracting thousands around the world to invest in cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and others like Litecoin, Ethereum and Ripple.

    The value of Bitcoin is linked to sentiment – whenever people rush to invest, the prices go up and when people decide to sell, the price goes down. This volatility has resulted in prices skyrocketing. In 2017, Bitcoin surged in valued from $830 to $19300 and is now fluctuating around $8,000. Other cryptocurrencies like Ripple and Ethereum are following a similar trend. This cryptocurrency rollercoaster has helped lucky investors to make fortunes.

    Blockchain, the technology behind Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, was designed to facilitate, authorise and log the transfer of bitcoins.

    How does blockchain technology work?
    Blockchain is a shared database populated with entries that must be confirmed and encrypted. Traditional databases are owned by a central authority like banks and governments, but blockchain does not belong to anyone.

    The impact that blockchain technology is having is similar to the impact of the internet in the 90s. As society becomes increasingly digital, financial services providers are looking to provide customers with more efficient, secure, and cost-effective services. Therefore, blockchain technology will become more applicable to our daily lives.

    Bitcoin and all cryptocurrencies depend on blockchain technology that makes transactions so secure that they are almost unhackable.

    Virtual trading and the global economy

    We have seen the rise of the virtual world in the twenty first century, which is a world that exists entirely on the internet. The currency that is used is known as bitcoin, but it does not possess any physical form. Bitcoin has now become a widely used currency, especially in China, the economic powerhouse. However, the lack of physical form makes bitcoin completely different to what money should be.

    A long time ago, the value of money was exactly what it was made of. Gold coins were made, and their value depended on the amount of gold in circulation. Nowadays, most money is printed on paper, which does not have that much value. Therefore, the government can print as much money as it wants as long as it has the cheap materials needed to print the money.

    Bitcoin is the next step in this worrying trend regarding the creation money. Bitcoins have no physical form, and they cost almost nothing to create. However, using bitcoin is very convenient as online transactions can be carried out using a currency which is suitable for expediting simple financial transactions.

    Adapting to Bulls and Bears

    Bulls and Bears characterizes and defines the volatile market conditions. Bulls and Bears is a term which is common in the trading world, increasing the hopes of traders as well as shattering their expectations! But what do they really represent?

    Bulls and Bears actually describe market conditions, whether stocks and/or currencies are increasing or decreasing in value.

    They also demonstrate the mood of the investor, and indicate subsequent market trends.

    A bull market describes a market that is increasing which is shown by an increase in market share prices. This situation causes a psychological boom installing faith in investors and resulting in a positive long term trend. This tends to happen in countries with strong and solid economies with high employment levels.

    A bear market causes the opposite psychological effect; it characterizes a falling market with share prices continuously falling, so results in a downward trend persuading investors that this market decline will continue over the long term. It leads to an increase in unemployment as employers begin to dismiss workers.

    Bitcoin value can reach $50k this year

    Bitcoin value has dropped by almost 45% after hitting a high of almost $20k this month but some experts feel the crypto currency is set to climb again in 2018


    Investors who joined late will feel the latest headline about Bitcoin value is a bad joke. Most people who invested in Bitcoin recently are sitting on negative equity or have cashed out losing.

    Ethereum and Ripple backers have similar stories to share with their Bitcoin owning counterparts. But for portfolio manager Jeet Sign cryptocurrency volatility isn’t surprising and he envisages Bitcoin’s value hitting $50k this year.

    Singh gave his views about cryptocurrencies to RT while attending the Davos Economic Forum in Switzerland. He’s been operating in the cryptocurrency space for the last six years. He’s seen similar volatility time and again. And he’s also experienced fluctuations by more than 80% and above on a regular basis.

    Singh drew comparisons between cryptocurrency and the early performance of Microsoft and Apple stock.

    “If you look at Microsoft or Apple when they went public their stocks were very volatile because the market wasn’t mature,” he said.

    The lack of vendors accepting cryptocurrencies as payment results in cryptocurrencies being used more like as a store of value. However, in countries with high inflation (Indonesia and Thailand) cryptocurrencies are more readily accepted.

    Join the few who gain from economic Armageddon

    The warning signs that a market crash is looming are becoming louder and more frequent. Despite this, most market participants are behaving like it can never happen. In fact, bullish trading is pushing the markets to new highs on an almost daily basis. The warnings are seen, heard and then ignored.

    Join the few who will take advantage of what’s about to happen. The same few who profited handsomely when billions were lost in the last global economic crisis almost a decade ago rather than those who simply follow the herd.

    For most people these warnings are like the graphic images printed on today’s packets of cigarettes, they spell out the dangers and yet all the same people are still smoking.

    Warnings about an impending market crash are being made by people who predicted with considerable accuracy in 2006 and 2007 what was ahead when the US sub-prime mortgage market collapsed and triggered the global financial crisis.

    The one thing these analysts can’t predict is an exact time and place for when the crash will happen. It’s the same reason people continue to smoke; nobody can say with certainty the number of cigarettes required to kill a person.

    So, trading continues regardless until the day the sudden dramatic drop in prices exceeds the 10 per cent threshold that officially marks the point that the crash has arrived.

    Do zombie banks provide real liquidity?

    A zombie bank is an alarming characteristic of the modern economy.

    What is a zombie bank?
    The term zombie bank refers to a financial institution that has an economic net worth which is less than zero. Basically, it signifies that this financial institution is in debt. A financial institution that is in debt should not be called a financial institution as it does not have any money to provide to people. In addition, it should not be trusted with people’s money as this money may actually be used to pay off debts.

    Nevertheless, even though zombie banks are in debt, they continue to be called financial institutions. They can continue performing in this capacity because their debts are settled through credit provided by the government.

    What is liquidity?
    Liquidity is a term used to describe a market’s ability to sell an asset quickly without lowering its price. This generally happens when the specific asset is in high demand, and will be sold off quickly regardless of the market’s requirements. For example, gold is an asset that is almost always in high demand. Therefore, the gold market has a high market liquidity.

    Why most traders do not succeed in forex trading?

    Making profits through stocks and shares is not an easy job. Inadequate trading methods, lack of confidence, patience and discipline can lead to a lack of success in the stock market. A trader should really know the tricks of trading. Inexperienced traders, who lack insight, risk all their money in one stock without planning before investing. Planning is a necessary standard in the stock market as complex trading techniques and lack of planning will contribute to the failure of the trader; therefore, successful traders always develop a plan.

    Lazy traders will definitely fail

    Without significant planning a trader will fail. Many traders are too lazy to develop a successful trading plan as it requires a lot of effort. Effort is necessary for success in the stock market, not just luck. Traders who are too confident and lazy are always in a hurry to chance their luck, which results in failure.
