    Anyone care to speculate on the continued downward trajectory? mt.gox continued dumping? I remember reading somewhere that sale of their coins by the trustee would not effect the markets?

    Bitcoin Price Faces Bear Indicator Not Seen Since 2014
    https://www.coindesk.com/bitcoin-clo...en-since-2014/
    This time around, the bearish crossover will likely occur at the turn of the month, if bitcoin extends the current decline towards the $7,000 mark, and would open the doors for a deeper sell-off towards the $5,000 mark.

    MIT Tests Smart Contract-Powered Bitcoin Lightning Network
    https://www.coindesk.com/mit-testing...tning-network/

    An MIT test is providing a rare glimpse of how bitcoin might truly work at scale.Revealed to CoinDesk last week, the prestigious U.S. university has been quietly demoing an experimental use case for bitcoin's lightning network, one that showcases how it might be combined with smart contracts to not only handle millions of transactions, but do so with a greater degree of complexity.

    Modeled within the school's Digital Currency Initiative, started in 2015 as a way to further R&D on cryptocurrencies, the test envisions a system wherein transactions would take place automatically in the case of defined external events, based on say today's weather or the current price of U.S. dollars.

    This is possible due to MIT's creative use of so-called "oracles," trusted entities meant to broadcast data to smart contracts. For this demo, researchers Tadge Dryja and Alin S. Dragos built a test oracle to broadcast the recent price of U.S. dollars in satoshis, the smallest unit of bitcoins, which anyone can grab and use for their smart contracts.

    It's a notable step forward for the idea, one first proposed by lightning inventor Dryja last summer. However, this is the first time it's been implemented as a prototype with working code.

    Dragos told CoinDesk:

    "We built this as a standalone feature of our lightning network software. We chose data what we thought would be cool, U.S. dollars, but it could be any data you want, whether weather or a stock."


    Dragos stressed that the demo is "experimental" and "shouldn't be used for real money." That said, he and other MIT researchers are convinced that with the help of the lightning network, bitcoin might one day scale to capacities originally envisioned by its early users.
    As part of that work, MIT researchers have already created an implementation for the lightning network called lit, and this oracle code is an add-on of that work.

    "We at DCI, we really believe in the lightning network," Dragos said. "Bitcoin doesn't scale very well. I decided there has to be something better. Turns out what's better is lightning. It's the way to scale."

    Bitcoin smart contracts

    But while lightning provides scale, smart contracts add other new functionality to bitcoin. For example, should the tech in MIT's test be implemented, you could make some sort of a bet based on what's happening in the world.

    Or, in this case, a futures contract. Alice promises to pay Bob whatever the price of dollars is in satoshis on a certain day, say Friday. If a dollar is worth 12,150 satoshis by the end of the week, then she will end up paying that.

    It's a kind of advanced smart contract use case that is usually not associated with bitcoin.

    "When folks think smart contracts, they think ethereum. Their scripting language is much richer," Dragos admitted.

    But, he argues that with some workarounds, bitcoin can do the same thing.

    "It's not as developer friendly because bitcoin didn't go in that direction, but you can use it. You have to be a little creative," Dragos said.
    In short, it uses Dryja's "discreet log contracts" scheme to broadcast data to the smart contracts. One of the most important advantages of this scheme is scalability, because most of the data doesn't need to be stored on the bitcoin blockchain.

    Going to hit $5,000 again- in the other direction? Dropped below $6,000 today. Lowest since October. Year to date is is off more than 50% ($13,500 as the year started). It was almost $20,000 in December (peaked Dec 6 at 19,350). Lost two thirds of its value since then (however, it is still double what it was a year ago so the bubble may have a ways more to deflate).

    Do you think it is a good idea to invest in Bitcoin or maybe look for some opportunities with some altcoins? I have found some nice tips and information about it on https://fintab.io/blog/ and I think that you might find that blog helpful to you too, good luck

    I recommend you have some of both, whether it's 95% alt coin and 5% bitcoin or 95% bitcoin and 5% alt coin, or somewhere in the middle, some diversity is usually a good idea. Depends on whether you think bitcoin will continue to be the dominate coin and if it will have significant gains like it has in the past. Lightning network is still in testing phase, some say it is going well, others are saying there are issues - but that study that came out the other day saying there are issues actually hit the upper bounds of some artificial limits that have been put in place on the test network and those in the know say it is working just fine. Alt coins will probably do very well in the future as well, but it can be harder to predict which ones might do the best and which ones will be duds.

    Like anything speculative, don't put in any more money than you can afford to lose. You should first have about a year's worth of expenses money put away first to cover things should you find yourself unemployed for whatever reason so you can pay your bills while looking for a new job.

    The exchange also says it has rolled back all the irregular trades, and offers anyone who was negatively affected by trading during the rising SYS prices a zero-free [sic- fee] trading regime from July 5 through July 14.

    All other Binance users will be given a 70-percent rebate on trading fees throughout the same period, paid out in the platform’s native token, Binance Coin (BNB).
    The way you can tell that all of these crypto exchanges are run by the usual banker suspects is that their "mistakes" take your earned money and then to "fix" the mistake they give you "credits" back. Credits that the exchanges (or brokerages, if drawing comparison to stock markets) create at will. You lose your earned money. They give you created crap.

    Iran’s Bitcoin Volume Soars as Rial Value Enters ‘Death Spiral’

    Iran’s national currency has crashed to its record low against the U.S. Dollar as the country prepares to face economic sanctions imposed by the Trump administration.


    The Iranian Rial, which was just beginning to gain momentum after years of depreciation, set a new low on Monday, trading on an average at 100,000 Rials on the black market. Many Iranians are now agitated that their economy will collapse. The sentiment has furthered because of Iranian authorities’ decision to impose restrictions on foreign currency transactions. The authorities have also started a crackdown on those attempting to circumvent restrictions by purchasing gold coins in the black market.


    Stuck between a depreciating national currency and strict law enforcement agencies, some Iranians are reportedly turning to bitcoin and similar decentralized assets to elude sanctions. Since May 2018, when the U.S. announced its sanctions against Tehran, bitcoin trading volume within the country has experienced a marked uptick, though it is still far below the all-time high it set last December. Around the same time, local media had claimed that Iranians had sent over $2.5 billion out of their land to purchase bitcoin and other digital currencies.

    One Iranian, who wished to remain anonymous, confirmed that she has been purchasing some bitcoins every month out of her salary as a protective measure against U.S. sanctions.


    “I started purchasing Bitcoin, and even Ethereum, thinking Iranian central bank will not be able to resolve the poor economic situation,” she told CCN. “I had read many reports about Chinese and Venezuelan people doing the same at the time of their economic crisis.”


    She has also confirmed that Rial price dropped heavily against bitcoin in the underground market, stating she was asked the equivalent of as much as $20,000 to purchase 1 BTC by the same dealer who was selling it for $10,000 only the last month.


    In international markets, the bitcoin price against USD is around $8,130 at press time.


    National Cryptocurrency a Solution?

    Iran, despite banning bitcoin and similar digital currencies in April this year, had announced that it will launch its own national cryptocurrency. Just very recently, the Iranian government confirmed that they have created a national encryption key which would employ blockchain technology.


    Nevertheless, U.S. believes that efforts to bypass their sanctions will be in vain, for they apply to people and organizations, not assets. The Trump administration has made clear that those who would form business ties with Iran would be enmeshed by sanctions.


    A similar attempt made by Venezuela by launching an oil- and mineral reserves-backed cryptocurrency, the Petro, has not gone too well. It has dropped from its initial sale price of $60 to the current price of $16.50, with minimal demand from global markets.

    Your ignorance is strong.

    Ripple is not a decentralized crypto currency like bitcoin or almost all alt coins..

    It is "owned" and controlled and promoted by a central company/controller. Some people call it the "banker coin", I thought you already knew about it since you promote the idea that a decentralized crypto is a banker coin..

    The idea is to defeat fiats like what they want ripple to become and what the dollar is now with decentralized crypto. That's why you should be on team bitcoin as opposed to team ripple. To see Bill Clinton promoting the banker coin is almost over the top and pretty hilarious.

    Yes, I'm aware of what Ripple is and how it differs from Bitcoin, et al. I asked why you'd promote Bill, not the particulars of the coin. I don't tend to post things that promote people and products I disagree with. ymmv

    And yes, they're both banker coins, meant to condition you to the blockchain future that they've been planning for years. If you read nerdy things like years old globalist summit whitepapers you'd already know that.
