Stop Focusing on Bitcoin Price - Former Clinton Advisor Due to the amazing growth in value, Bitcoin has forced its way into the minds of regular people all around the world, even though it has been in existence since 2009.

Please share if you find this article interesting. Coinbase to Customers: Don't Forget to Pay Taxes on Bitcoin Gains Exchange and wallet service provider Coinbase appears to be taking early steps to remind customers about their upcoming tax obligations. With the U.S. tax year having ended on Dec. 31, the company's users are now faced with a banner placed at the top of their dashboard, stating "Please remember to pay your taxes," and linking to the website's newly updated tax FAQ page. The FAQ points out that Coinbase "cannot provide legal or tax advice," but links to Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidelines on how to report and pay taxes relating to crypto trading. A similar banner is also now visible for users in the EU as well. It also adds that users can refer to their acco

The following article is an exclusive contribution to CoinDesk's 2017 in Review. For the past couple of years, there has been an extraordinary amount of hype around the potential of blockchain (or more correctly distributed ledger technology) to transform the banking industry. The reason for this hype is quite profound: DLT has given us the opportunity to rearchitect the financial industry. In the years ahead, we will move from a system of many banks with many ledgers (with all the associated rec

Please share if you find this article interesting. Wall Street Buzz: Merrill Lynch Bans Bitcoin For Its Clients In a move that sounds similar to that taken by JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon, Wall Street bank Merrill Lynch has banned its financial advisors from buying Bitcoin-related investments for their clients. The decision comes as the major bank has concerns “pertaining to suitability and eligibility standards of this product,” according to an Internal memo reviewed by the Wall Street Journal. Going against the grain The decision taken by Merrill Lynch prevents roughly 17,000 advisors pitching anything to do with Bitcoin or even executing clients’ request to trade Grayscale Bitcoin Investment Trust (GBTC). The GBTC is one of the major avenues in which Bitcoin can be traded on Wall

Happy Birthday Bitcoin, and Don’t Forget About Cypherpunks - Keiser If 2017 has taught us anything, it’s that the price of a commodity has a massive influence on how the world values it. As Bitcoin entered a phenomenal bull run in November, it was almost impossible not to get caught up in the hype of the ever-growing value of the cryptocurrency. The price continued to rise, breaking barrier after barrier with no consideration of naysayers or well-wishers. But as history will forever tell us, a $20,000 high was the tipping point and Bitcoin and most of the cryptocurrency market endured a heavy price correction in the lead up to Christmas. Some people made a lot of money while others lost out in the eventual correction. However the

Please share if you find this article interesting. Bitcoin No Longer Top Dog Because Of How It Is Defined The total market cap of the cryptocurrency market reached a new milestone, crossing the $700 bln mark. However, the driving force that is Bitcoin has slumped to all-time lows in terms of its market dominance. For so long Bitcoin has held more than just the lion's share of the crypto market dominance, but currently, while many will be calling it altcoin season with Bitcoin’s dominance down to 34 percent, it may be that Bitcoin has made itself less important. At its genesis, Bitcoin was heralded as the new revolution of currency with its low fees and instant transfers, but that is long gone, and with it too perhaps Bitcoin’s relevance in the global crypto market. Not what it wa

DASH and Litecoin Analysis January 5, 2018

PRICE ANALYSIS
Please share if you find this article interesting. DASH and Litecoin Analysis January 5, 2018 DASH/USD DASH continues to be a bit volatile, but we are underneath the downtrend line that makes the top of the downtrend in channel. If we can break above the $1200 level, the market could continue to go higher, perhaps reaching towards the $1400 level. If we break down below the $1000 level, then I think we go down to the $850 level. LTC/USD Litecoin fell a bit during the trading session on Thursday, but I think there is plenty support below at the $200 level to keep this market afloat. We may drift down towards that area, but right now I think the volume simply isn’t there, meaning that we are going to go back and forth. [embedded content] Thanks for watching, I’ll be back tomorrow
