  6. Cryptocurrencies are becoming Fiat currencies after all.

  7. After trying so much failed cryptocurrency trading, me and my friends came across Mr Evan Gilmore and we reached out to him, I must say I make good money investing with him. I make $7,500 every week with his new cryptocurrency trading strategy, I and my associates have decided to share this one since it’s a success story for us. It is the least I can do for beginners or people who have lost so much on crypto currency trading and are looking for the right strategy Mr Evan is willing to help. Email him via [email protected]GMAIL.COM

  8. Give me Billions and Billions of different token types, each released in finite amounts over time, and each specializing in different needful use cases for currency.

  9. Also Litecoin was a fork of Bitcoin too!
    'Just saying' ;P

  10. Got 212 BTCP free. They are trading at ~$60-$90 on “Trade Satoshi” right now. Went as high as $130, but I’m holding. Going to get more exposure and price increases when they hit bigger exchanges like HitBTC and Kucoin, hopefully Binance. Still a good buy right now if you asked me, but I’m biased. My BTCP experience so far has been pure profit. Not 200% or 300%… remember in 2nd grade what happens when you divide by zero? “Undefined” profit my friends 🙂

  11. Crypto networks use way to much internet bandwith.
    Crypto network uses way to much energy consumption.
    Crypto will be cracked by AI software.

    Go watch Boiler Room to understand the crime being committed.

  12. Bitcoin and Ethereum has and is still  making a lot of people "stupid rich"  $10(ten dollars) seven years ago is now worth $7.5 million in bitcoins today.  And $100(hundred dollars) in Ethereum has increased to as high as $66,290 in under two years! The trend is on a daily increase,  worldwide, investors in crypto and digital  currencies are getting rich daily, I personally have invested in bitcoin and Ethereum. And I've collected bigger gains investing these coins than in anything else in my life. For example, I bought bitcoin twice, last year and early this year, 10 coins at $83.40. And 20 more at $128. Today my 20 coins trade nearly 24 times higher . And I also bought Ethereum last November at $9.70… before it rocketed to $355! I was up over 3,500%. But here is the thing nobody is talking about, bitcoin and Ethereum aren't the real success stories anymore. It's the smaller and unpopular new digital currencies that are rewarding investors with the next round of huge wins. For example , I recently obtained 27,000 coins in a tiny new digital currency for just 18.5 cents per coin. Those coins now trade for around $4 each- 1,981% higher. And I invested in another one that's jumped from $1.50 to $10.71. Yet this opportunity is just getting started, today I'll show you the new digital currencies that can turn as little as $10 into over $1million. in the blink of an eye. Yes, that's right. a single crispy $10 bill could make you a millionaire. now for the doubters, not only is it possible, it's actually happening right now, a considerable number of  investors worldwide have seen gains of 75,063% in Cryptonite, 59,577% in InfluxCoin, 60,450% in MaxCoin, and even 823,750% in DubaiCoin! Tiny new digital currencies are offering profits far bigger than bitcoin and much more quickly,  I've personally made over 600% in one digital currency more than 1,981 in a second and over 3,500% in another, and I expect to make a whole lot more. Digital currencies is now one of the online investments where you can start with $10 and turn that into real money fast. CNBC did a story about a high school dropout who bought some bitcoin at $12 and is now a millionaire. also top investors worldwide are going all in on the new digital currencies. Now this is what you guys should know . A new set of  coins are being launched now that could help you turn as little as $10 into over $1 million. I've never seen profit opportunities like this before in any market and at anytime. For example, in one recent week 23 separate digital currencies doubled in value. By comparison, the S&P 500 hasn't seen a single stock double yet this year. But only those who recognize the opportunity right now will see the fast profits. I first got in on Bitcoin at $83.40 and $128… only to watch it soar to over $2,000. But now I've turned my attention to the new digital currencies. For example; I invested in ANTSHARES earlier this year and at the time it was trading for just $1.50 but I watched it climb to $10.71 in less than a month. I invested in tiny new digital currencies of 12 coins and I cashed out 12,000 at $3.50 but still hold the rest… nearly $100,000 in total. There are now dozens of small digital currencies trading for just a few cents that are moving up dramatically over very short periods; like Asch traded for few cents at first but in less than 3 months $100=$,570. NolimitCoin traded for few cents but now $100=5,348 in 6 days. MediterraneanCoin traded for few cents but now $100=8,313 in 3 months, the list is endless, I will stop here so I don't bore you guys, but it is sure worth your time. in case you are interested in venturing into investing in Crypto and Digital Currencies, or perhaps you are trading them but you don't understand what you are doing, feel free to message me through email and I will be sure to guide and assist with any information you may need to invest in  these new and unpopular  crypto and digital currencies that are making waves at the moment.

  13. What actually happens when bitcoin forks is this. A group of people with some programming knowledge get together, make their own coin, steal the bitcoin name for brand recognition, and attempt to profit. the only bitcoin, is bitcoin.

  14. Bitcoin private got CNBC exposure and it's still only $65 bucks a peice, the absolute least valuable of the bitcoin forks smh, I wish I never bought zclassic to get Bctp

  15. If you want to buy Bitcoin try coinbase they are the easiest way to get started. That's what I used in the beginning.

  16. This is a joke, people still can’t see this is a problem…… 20 years later, people will laughs at how ridiculous it is that a group of people can just start some sort of crypto currency and it is legal………. people in future will be amazed how little our government have done to stop it . Will be on history books.

  17. If you want to mine bitcoin slowly just download Cryptotab…
    thank me for this once you get a few bitcoins a month

  18. no hard forks on Snatcoin

  19. Actually , the true original Bitcoin is not called bitcoin, the current bitcoin is a fork of what is now called bitcoin core, bitcoin core is the original bitcoin

  20. Anyone can fork bitcoin. It literally forks all the time but nobody uses them because they are big gaye most of the time.

  21. People don't use other forked coins, so its useless. So don't worry

  22. I think the situation is pretty forked up!

    BitcoinCash (BCH or BCC) was not only an attempted cash grab but it was an attempt to overthrow the REAL Bitcoin, sometimes referred to as Bitcoin Core by BCH community. The real problem lies in the centralization of the ASIC mining rigs required to profitably mine BTC. There is only one main company, coincidentally called Bitmain, that produces the majority of these specialized computer rigs and therefore there is a bottleneck on the supply. The total combined hashing power from all of these computers essentially had no competition prior to the BCH fork August 1st 2017- after that point the Bitcoin miners began switching over to mine BitcoinCash at times when it became more profitable (due to variable difficulty of BCH). This created a competition for the miners and their hashing power which caused the price and speed of transactions on the Bitcoin network to have issues.

    Each successive fork seemed to be worth less and less. Some forks turned out to be a sham and others were laden with scams! Cryptocurrency is still in its infantile stages where we will have to learn how to crawl before we can walk or run. There will be many growing pains along the way including several more price booms and crashes.

  23. Yes! That's what Ppl need knowledge. Good stuff #Verge

  24. The currency only has value as long as people use it if no one uses it then it has no value same thing with the US dollar that's probably why the government does not want us to use Bitcoin

  25. Saying 'bitcoin just keeps forking' would suggest someone is closing in on having 50%+ mining ability.
    This may be a split to a new currency but dont use the word fork.

  26. what the fork is going on here?


    This is not a fork and it's actually what Bitcoin should be in the first place!

  28. Came here just to dislike

  29. T2

    BTC is the one.
    Smart investors will only pump & dump those forks.


  31. everything but bitcoin is trash

  32. if you need yo learn about bitcoin just look for Andreas antonopoulous he's the true messiah
