Crypto-Currency News  

June 17th

PTCShare  is a brand new upcoming project of My Traffic Value/ has started their compensation plan today, with earning potential available from Monday to Friday.

Bitcoin is staying above the $9000 USD level for now as interest builds once again for crypto's highest and #1 ranking in Market Cap value.

The rising price of Bitcoin is certainly the buzz currently. Transaction fees on a Blockchain are lower at certain times during the day so if you have patience that will save you some crypto/money in the end. Before the sudden upswing in value, I seen fees that were below a dollar, usually around 0.25 cents. Today, for the same amount today ... upwards of $7 in fees so you can see what I'm getting at. I seen the difference in $6 from the early AM here (Halifax - Atlantic Time) at $1 than in the afternoon for the same transaction ... up to $7.

For sure, Hack attempts are more intense now so hopefully, security systems keep them at bay in the crypto outfits involved in. They usually target 'Whale' accounts but I have read of small crypto wallet balances disappearing as well.

Trending is the price of Bitcoin that shot up and been hovering around the $8000 USD range these days. Being a benchmark, other crypto's have seen increases in value such as Litecoin for example.

Airdrops were very popular last year and remain in the crypto news and I won't turn one down when I see an offer from a respectable outfit like Coinbase and  CoinBase Earn , now into 103 countries. Recently, I added $10 in Stellar Lumens to my Coinbase holdings via Coinbase Earn. Folks can register and learn/earn about the cyrpto currency.

May 3rd  ,being one of the largest Wallet providers and exchange services in the world with over 36 million users, has added it's first 'Stable' coin called ... USD PAX ; pegged 1:1 to the US Dollar regulated by the State of New York and 'backing funds' are held in US Banks.

An alternative to Bitcoin and Altcoins that fluctuate in price daily.

Blockchain 'Miners' are back in the news as Bitcoin continues to edge up in price at this time. Many sold their 'mining computers' cheaply during the crypto 'winter' where they weren't making enough money and there's always that power bill looming where they consume a lot of power.

These days, outfits that bought all these used 'Mining' machines are now selling for double what they paid for them to folks, where working the 'Mining' they can pay for the gear in about 200 days currently from mining to cover their purchases while making money along the way and then gain profit.

In turn, transaction 'fees' where there's now more traffic on Blockchains are higher then during the crypto 'winter' or past slow months but still reasonable for now.

Trends come and go while many tend to repeat over the years. With Crypto, it was the rise of Bitcoin and specially ... the Blockchain, then Alt Coins ...sort of copy cats of BTC but have their own following and system/design. ICO's followed, or Initial Coin Offerings ... too many scams made investors wary, more cautious seeking more information if possible than funding blindly.

An emerging trend is the 'Staking' or the offers and promotions to keep your Tokens or coins with an outfit and gain 'interest' calculated over a year but added in installments to accounts. With the companies and startups offering this comes with the possibility that folks will jump ship when they see their Tokens held ... steady dropping in value so that could bust a 'startup' but those with millions in reserves like Coinbase for example, doesn't effect much where they continue to earn on fees with their main focus, be it as an exchanger/Wallet provider or other revenue source(s).

Certainly an incentive to see a Token holding grow with 'Staking' in the various offers and terms out there than in traditional 'Wallets' but like everything in investing ... comes with a degree of risk.

Suddenly without warning, Bitcoin took a big jump the last couple days of about a $1000 USD fluctuating and stirring up some excitement I'm sure. Take heed of the sudden rise in fees as well that normally run parallel with increased activity on blockchains.

Several Altcoins have also increased in value. Namely, Litecoin, although partially related to this sudden spike, increased by about 120% or more since January, 2019.

Back a few years, Bitcoin was just making the rounds to those into investing online and caught o big time in the fall of 2017. Before that and since, some shady folks have started crypto 'shops' and ICO's, Initial Coin Offerings ... thinking Gov'ts and the law are looking the other way so no big deal if we swindle investors.

Times have changed in a hurry and already two notable investigations and court cases are underway in Canada to put the word out; we will eventually catch you. In both cases millions in assets have been seized until the investigations and court cases finish their findings. Using investor's money 'mainly' for personal gain is the major issue instead of actual development of a project or buying into ventures that create capital and possible gains for the investors involved.
