Which new coins will be big in the new year?

December 31, 2017 /u/teh-monk 0

Hey guys, I’m wondering what your thoughts are on new coins to invest in for the the new year. Personally I have a stake in Raiblocks but the market cap there is growing a lot so I’m looking for some other coins to get into.

One coin I have been liking that is very new to the exchanges is DeepBrain Chain. This coin will decentralize difficult computations for AI and allow for computers around the world to process / contribute to the computing power necessary for AI to perform tasks.

Anyways tell me about your picks and why we should research more about it. Thanks

Bloom ICO is about to end, deciding if it makes sense to participate. Thoughts?

December 31, 2017 /u/tamaware217 0

I’ve been following the Bloom ICO for a while and I wanted to get a better sense of what the community is thinking.

So first the good as I see it:

  • Equifax hack just happened, so timing for Bloom is good.
  • All of the main team members are from Stanford have been in blockchain for years.
  • Strong network of advisors, the former Chief Scientist of Experian is working with them, Joey Krug is one of their advisors.
  • They’re launching on mainnet tomorrow.
  • They have a good number of partners building on the protocol.
  • The team built a large identity company that alot of crypto companies use so they have experience in the space.

And the risks:

  • Cap is high. They have a $50m hard cap and have about $33m contributed so far.
  • They’re focused on alot of different things, it’s a real lot for one team to work on.
  • Credit is a tough space to enter, the big 3 bureaus are massive and who knows if anyone will actually take Bloom’s score seriously.
  • The published roadmap only has rough estimates of releases by quarter, no specifics.
  • There are alot of companies working on lending and identity (Civic, uPort, ETHLend, SALT etc)

What is everyones thoughts?

New Website Provides Guide to US Cryptocurrency Law

December 31, 2017 Kai Sedgwick 0

New Website Provides Guide to US Cryptocurrency LawCryptocurrency law can be maddeningly vague. From taxation to commodities, the US constitution is characterized by ill-defined and occasionally contradictory statutes regarding digital currencies. Law reform moves at a glacial pace, leaving the status of cryptocurrencies often unlegislated. For cryptocurrency users trying to navigate murky legal waters, this ambiguity can be frustrating. A new website […]

Modum Closes Deal with $5billion+ revenue company

December 31, 2017 /u/SkyBizze 0

Here is the official post from the CEO released yesterday: https://modum.io/ceo-update-december-2017/

“As an important achievement, we have closed contracts with a $5+ billion revenue logistics provider, formalizing the step-by-step integration of our solution. Currently, we are preparing a joint, official announcement of this partnership and the resulting product; we expect to disclose the name of our partner in Q1. In addition, we also closed the contractual framework for our CTI project and are thrilled by other companies’ interest in the open API.”

Modum is currently valued at 100 mill market cap

This announcement was about 24 hours ago, they haven’t made an official joint press release on the partnership yet so barely anyone knows about it.

MOD may also be in the process of locking down a partnership deal with Novartis if you don’t know what novartis is: https://i.imgur.com/wtyPGEJ.png

Evidence? One of the team members is Pascal Degen – Head of Sterile Packaging, Novartis

Read the team’s response on collaboration with Novartis from the reddit AMA: https://imgur.com/iuFNwTq

Again, 100 mill market cap. The amount of attention this is getting from big players clearly makes it deserving of a top 50 spot, probably much higher.

I don’t want to clutter up this post with links, but I encourage you to research their product (rolling out in Q1 2018), the team, and their professional connections.

Happy new year!

Rather than talking about price and stuff like that, could we have a tech Tuesday where you can only post about cryptocurrency technology?

December 31, 2017 /u/Boatsmhoes 0

Cryptocurrency shouldn’t be about HODL!!!1!, it should be about tech. If people want it to actually take off, you need to spend it to create a stable currency. This shouldn’t be looked at as an investment, it should be looked at as the future that happens to be an investment. Which goes back to not buying more than you can lose.

This Week in Bitcoin: The Bitcoin Fork Tsunami Gives Way to a Ripple

December 31, 2017 Kai Sedgwick 0

This Week in Bitcoin: The Bitcoin Tsunami is Reduced to a RippleTraditionally, nothing happens in the period between Christmas and New Year. It’s a lull devoid of anything newsworthy whatsoever. Except in the world of bitcoin. Miners never stop mining and exchanges never stop exchanging because bitcoin never sleeps – and it certainly doesn’t call in a week-long vacation just cos it’s the holidays. As a […]
