Will it survive it’s faster competitors like Maxcoin? Is it a realistic platform for on-site transactions on the retail and on-trade environment?
Will it work alongside with faster coins as the “safer” and more “vintage” cousin of the family?

Worst Crash In Our Lifetime Is Coming – Jim Rogers
Legendary investor Jim Rogers sat down with Business Insider CEO Henry Blodget on this week’s episode of “The Bottom Line.”
Rogers predicts a market crash “later this year or next …. write it down.” Rogers say the crash will rival anything he has seen in his lifetime.
Jim Rogers holds a gold coin (Digital Journal)
Here is a transcript of the Business Insider video:
Blodget: One of the things I’ve always admired about you as an investor is that you don’t talk about what should be. You figure out what is going to be and then you do that. So what is going to be with respect to the stock market? What’s going to happen?

Understanding The Cryptocurrency Boom

A collapse of the current global fiat currency regime is, concerningly, something that increasingly looks more and more inevitable. This will destroy a staggering amount of the (paper) wealth currently held by today’s households.
Which makes developing a fully-informed understanding of the cryptocurrency landscape now — today — an extremely important requirement for any prudent investor. Which of the current coins will emerge as the winner(s) adopted by the mainstream?

We’re in a Boiling-Point Crisis of Exploitive Elites

5 days ago

Many of us have written about cycles in the past decade: Kondratieff economic cycles, business/credit cycles, the Strauss–Howe generational theory (an existential national crisis arises every four generations, as described in their book The Fourth Turning), and long-wave cycles of growth and decline, as described in seminal books such as The Great Wave: Price Revolutions and the Rhythm of History and War and Peace and War: The Rise and Fall of Empires.
There is another Rhythm of American History that few recognize: the economic, social and political crises sparked by exploitive Elites. There are two dynamics that drive these crises:

Blockpay – Integrating cryptocurrencies and businesses through blockchain anonymity

5 days ago

In today’s competitive world, businesses are trying their best cut down on time spent in non-profitable activities. With the traditional financial setup, general transactions end up taking way longer than expected to cause a loss of time and investment opportunities. To tackle the issue of loss of valuable time and avoid paying a reasonably high transaction fee, most of the businesses are now turning towards cryptocurrencies. While using cryptocurrencies surely is profitable, there is a problem in completing adopting the digital tokens. Leaving confidential transaction information in the public blockchain makes them an easy target for industrial espionage by their competitors.

This current state of play won’t last forever. Only Gold lasts forever

6 days ago

Some days it can feel a little rough being a gold investor. In today’s article Dominic Frisby is certainly feeling that way. Sometimes it can be all too easy to get caught up in the day to day chat around prices. Some forget that the reasons why they invested are still strong, even if it feels like the price isn’t.
Frisby reminds us that ‘We know government finances do not pass basic safety standards. We know there’s too much debt. We know asset prices are overvalued.’ and we must keep reminding ourselves that this is unsustainable and cannot go on forever.
What will last forever is gold. This is one of the major reasons for investing in bullion; it is not just because of the price. Prices change according to the

The Dead Giveaways of Imperial Decline

9 days ago

Identifying the tell-tale signs of Imperial decay and decline is a bit of a parlor game. The hubris of an increasingly incestuous and out-of-touch leadership, dismaying extremes of wealth inequality, self-serving, avaricious Elites, rising dependency of the lower classes on free Bread and Circuses provided by a government careening toward insolvency due to stagnating tax revenues and vast over-reach–these are par for the course of self-reinforcing Imperial decay.
Sir John Glubb listed a few others in his seminal essay on the end of empires The Fate of Empires, what might be called the dynamics of decadence:

(a) A growing love of money as an end in itself.
(b) A lengthy period of wealth and ease, which makes people

Gold Will Start Heading Higher On “Dwindling” Supply – Rickards

Gold was down after the Fed’s hike, but I expect it to start heading higher again. Too many powerful forces are driving it behind the scenes. Dwindling physical supply is a major one.

Is Gold Stable Above $1,300 Per Ounce?

10 days ago

Gold is currently trading at $1282.45 per ounce, down 0.61% on the day. Over the past 6 months, gold is now in the black, to the tune of 9.80% or $115.10 per ounce. Over the past 30-days, the precious metal has made surprising gains of 5.29% or $64.80. The recent performance of gold has a lot to do with the strength of the US dollar and rising geopolitical uncertainty. The US dollar index (DXY) measures the performance of the greenback against a basket of 6 currencies.

STEEM – A blockchain-based social media rewards platform

10 days ago

June saw the cryptocurrency market cap steer past $100 Billion with most of the cryptocurrencies enjoying an unusual surge. One such token, which was restored to its former glory during the same period was ‘STEEM.’ Post its launch, STEEM hit the $400 Million mark in market cap during July 2016. The price of STEEM tokens went quickly from $0.24 to $ 4.63 marking an 1800% rise in the value of the cryptocurrency. However, with no cap on the supply of STEEM in the long run, the price and the market cap of the digital token dropped to lower bounds of $200 Million.

Unlike other tokens which derive their value from their limited supply or intermediary burning, STEEM derives its value from its usage. Hence the drop was
