Tribetica.com For Bitcoin and ICO Analysis

While looking for a good source of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency information online, I came across Remivee and his site Tribetica.com. This is becoming one of my favorite sites for information on the new digital currencies that were the rage last year but have fallen sharply since the end of 2017. And that was one of the criteria that I was looking for, a source that was honest and not just hyping holding Bitcoin.

Taking a look at a post today illustrates the great content that you will find. An analysis of the current short positions in Bitcoin as traded on the Bitfinex market. Read the first paragraph and you will discover that bears have short positions rising from 17 thousand to 34 thousand over the past two weeks. A clear sign that you should not purchase more at the current levels. Although no recommendation is made, the bull position is also analyzed from a historic position. The long positions were built last year at the 6000 price and are hard to break through for the shorts. The shorts are at a all time high level and could lead to a short squeeze according to Remivee.

On Monday, the top regulator of financial services in New York announced that it will allow the Gemini Trust Company bitcoin exchange, established by Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, to provide trading of Zcash - the privacy centered crypto currency.

"With shrewd and comprehensive regulatory supervision, the long term expansion and development of the sector will thrive" Maria Vullo, the Financial Services Superintendent, said in an interview.

According to Gemini, Zcash deposits will start to be accepted on May 19, 2018, and trading will commence a few days later.

Invest In Bitcoin Today

bitcoin-2018

Crypto currency is currently in a slump. There is only one thing to do- buy Bitcoin. The rule is always buy low, and sell high. That means buy crypto currency when the prices are low and sell them when they are high. People call the current slump "the end of crypto currency" but it isn't true. Remember, buy low. This is a great opportunity to diversify with crypto and get it at a great price. Remember these two words- buy Bitcoin.

The crypto currency market is volatile but there is plenty of money to be made in the selling of it during highs. In order to make money while the prices are high, you must purchase while it is low. Buy Bitcoin. Buy Bitcoin. Buy Bitcoin.

Bitcoin Gaining Ground By Being Offered As Prize Money

Fanduel

FanDuel announced The Bitcoin Bowl recently that will be happening during the NFL playoffs and they will be offering free bitcoins to the winners as prizes.

The bitcoin value is not being considered in the contest and the winner will receive the bitcoin no matter its value in the marketplace.

The Volatile Price Of Bitcoin

The price of Bitcoin continues to grow, and it recently hit values over $16,000. The cryptocurrency's values nearly doubled over the last two weeks. Institutional war chests are probably doing most of the movement at this point, considering that the market cap now reached nearly $300 billion. This raises the stakes for traders to new heights.

Different exchanges have been citing different prices over that time period. While everyone had the price of Bitcoin pegged at around $8,000 just 14 days ago, the Coinbase GDAX exchange approached the $19,000 mark. Most other exchanges had the price of Bitcoin positioned at a much lower value. These drastic differences are making it difficult to predict market fluctuations with any degree of certainty.

Ethereum: The Future Of Credit?

Ethereum

Ethereum may represent the future of credit, according to the cryptocurrency's founder Vitalik Buterin.

Like most other cryptos, Ethereum is based on the blockchain, a system that allows the currency to be hack-proof while simultaneously allowing every coin to be traced back to its origin point. This provides a level of secure transparency that Buterin believes can revolutionize security and economics.

The biggest stumbling block at present is the speed at which crypto transactions are processed. Bitcoin, the most well known cryptocurrency, processes about three transactions per second, while Ethereum is a little faster at five. Uber provides 12 rides a second, suggesting that cryptocurrencies need to process transactions much faster for large-scale commercial applications.

Bitcoin Makes Impressive Gains

Bitcoin Makes Impressive Gains

Bitcoin

The value of Bitcoin recently surpassed $2000.

The most famous cryptocurrency on the planet now has a per coin value of more than $2000. That is what several bitcoin exchanges are reporting, such as Kraken and Coinbase. This valuation indicates that the total bitcoin market cap (i.e. the total value of coins in use) is $32.92 billion.

This year, bitcoin has thrived - as this Coindesk chart reflects.

In 2013, bitcoin initially surpassed the $1000 valuation, however a range of variables - such as the problems experienced by Mount Gox (which was the leading exchange at the time) - meant that the currency dropped in value. Financial organizations tested blockchain and bitcoin based services during this period, and new Chinese regulations increased overall stability. This led to bitcoin returning to the $1000 mark by the end of 2016. Ever since, its' value has constantly grown throughout 2017.
