He’s worked with Deloitte, Center for Financial Services Innovation and Breaking Banks Radio. He’s also a Founder and Executive Chairman at Moven, a mobile banking app. King is an advocate for innovations in the banking system. The main idea he puts forth in his books, interviews, and speeches - most recently at Money 20/20 October this year - is that banks are losing their dominance and we’ll most likely see a new era of “financial technologies without banks” services in the very foreseeable future. We decided to ask him how the banking future looks and whether Blockchain has an

$20k Bitcoin? Not Yet As Changing Charts Favor Crypto Rivals

$20k Bitcoin? Not Yet As Changing Charts Favor Crypto Rivals

Please share if you find this article interesting. $20k Bitcoin? Not Yet As Changing Charts Favor Crypto Rivals Bitcoin is on the rise against the U.S. dollar, but a look at all of its relevant trading pairs (LTC/BTC, ETH/BTC) suggests the move to $20,000 could take longer than expected. The world's largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization has traded more or less sideways over the last few days as the alternative currencies rallied sharply to new highs. But, as discussed yesterday, the lackluster action in BTC could be due to the rotation of money from BTC (large cap) and into alternative currencies (or so-called 'small caps'). This flow of money is best represented by the bullish break seen in cross cryptocurrency charts – i.e. ETH/BTC, LTC/BTC, BCH/BTC and XRP/BTC. For e

Bitcoin Price Watch; Here’s What’s On This Weekend

PRICE ANALYSIS
Please share if you find this article interesting. Bitcoin Price Watch; Here’s What’s On This Weekend We are closing in on the end of the European session on Friday and that means one thing – that the week is almost over. At the end of last week, we saw bitcoin run to an incredible degree as markets loaded up on positions ahead of the introduction of bitcoin futures to the market. We said this morning that we were hoping to see more of the same this week (i.e. a solid run to the upside) and we’ve not got exactly what we wanted. We have seen some upside, sure, but it’s far from the multi-thousand dollar run we saw heading into last weekend. Anyway, it’s not overly important. So long as we can stay on top of what’s happening on the intraday charts, we’ll be able to keep things movi

Buying Bitcoin with Debt Stinks of Bubbles

Buying Bitcoin with Debt Stinks of Bubbles

BITCOIN
Please share if you find this article interesting. Buying Bitcoin with Debt Stinks of Bubbles Joseph Borg, president of the North American Securities Administrators Association, explained how he had seen people putting their houses for mortgage in order to buy Bitcoin in a frenzy of not wanting to miss out. It is a worrying trend, as these decisions are foolhardy to say the least, but moreso, they are dangerous -- as they have preceded other bubbles in the past. While the product (dot com sites, or housing) is not necessarily bubble-prone, the way in which people react to it can cause a pop. Bitcoin is a speculative market, and it is in a feeding frenzy at the moment as people try and get in on the wild ride. But moves like buying Bitcoin in debt could lead to a catastrophic end

Please share if you find this article interesting. Keiser - Crypto Headed For $1 Tln Market Cap Following the launch of Bitcoin futures trading on the Chicago Board Options Exchange, the financial world is trying to come to grips with what Bitcoin really is. The total market cap of cryptocurrencies has surpassed the $500 bln mark - and it’s fair to say that every financial institution is sitting up and taking stock of virtual currencies and their underlying Blockchain technology. However, many people are still in the dark and have less than a basic understanding of cryptocurrencies. Keiser - three characteristics of Bitcoin In the latest edition of the Keiser Report on RT, show host Max Keiser speculated on the effect that Bitcoin futures would have on the Bitcoin market. As per

DASH and Litecoin Analysis December 18, 2017

PRICE ANALYSIS
Please share if you find this article interesting. DASH and Litecoin Analysis December 18, 2017 DASH/USD DASH continues to be very volatile, bouncing between the $800 level on the bottom, and the $1000 level on the top. This type of volatility continues to be an issue, but I think eventually we will break out and clear the $1000 level. In the meantime, buying the dips on short-term charts continues to be the best way to play this market. LTC/USD Litecoin continues to be very bullish, initially testing the $250 level underneath. We bounced from there, and have now formed a bit of a hammer, and that of course is a bullish sign. I think we will eventually clear this region, but right now it’s likely to see consolidate of action around the $300 level, until traders are comfortabl

Ethereum Analysis December 18, 2017

PRICE ANALYSIS
Please share if you find this article interesting. Ethereum Analysis December 18, 2017 ETH/USD Ethereum initially fell during the trading session on Friday, testing the vital $600 level. We have rallied significantly since then, so it looks as if this market is going to continue to be a “buy on the dips” situation. I believe that eventually we will go looking towards the $700 level, and that of course the $800 level after that. A breakdown below $600 could send this market down to $500. ETH/BTC Ethereum broke down against Bitcoin, and now that we are below the 0.04 level, and of course Bitcoin is rallying significantly, I believe that this market will continue the downward trajectory, perhaps reaching as low as the 0.025 level underneath.
