The Blockchain Breakout and The Millions

During the past month we all realized why Bitcoin - the much-hyped “cryptocurrency” - is the pioneer in this space and how many more BCH, ETH, LTC among others are emerging victorious down the road.
The technology powering Bitcoin is not just changing the currency industry - it’s changing IT, healthcare, banking, cybersecurity, and nearly every other industry today.
I can tell you that major companies, like IBM and Walmart, and even an entire country (Belarus) are implementing this technology in their own businesses to completely transform the way they do business:
  • Reducing fraud
  • Accessing transaction and product details at lightning speeds
  • Securing payments and blocking hackers
  • …and much, much more
Now, I’m going to show you how you can invest in it right now and take advantage of what I call the “Blockchain Breakout”… without being a venture capitalist or a super-connected angel investor by simply sending you a personal invite to Coinbase a digital currency exchange headquartered in San Francisco, California. One of the best broker exchanges of Bitcoin (₿), Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum (Ξ), Litecoin (Ł) and other digital assets with fiat currencies in 32 countries, and bitcoin transactions and storage in 190 countries worldwide.

Here is my personal Invite: COINBASE and as soon as you use this referral you will get $10 of free Bitcoin, now bear in mind that during this season it might be possible that Bitcoin itself might be up to € 20,000 per Bitcoin so there is still a long way to profit but be cautious.

Did you know that the most exciting part of Bitcoin is not the currency itself?
The most exciting part of bitcoin is actually the technology behind the currency.
Bitcoin is run by a technology called “blockchain.”
Here’s how blockchain works:
Most people use a middleman to make transactions. The bank is an example of a middleman. If you want to buy something, you need to either get money from the bank or use a payment processor to run the transaction.
The blockchain technology allows consumers and suppliers to conduct these transactions directly, removing the need for a third party.
Now, here’s the key to the whole thing: blockchain provides a decentralized database, or “digital ledger”, of transactions that everyone can see. (here some interesting literature)

The network of computers that can see the transaction must all approve an exchange before it can be completed.
This network is essentially a chain of computers that must all approve an exchange before it can be verified and recorded.
And there’s no central database to hack.
But while this sounds complicated, it all happens much faster than you think: faster than wire transfers or any other banking transactions.
The technology can work for almost every type of transaction involving value, including money, goods and property.
Its potential uses are almost limitless and people like you or me control the price, the use, and the demand. So with this brief update I just have to say Enjoy the Christmas season and The New Year and see you in the other side.

Bitcoin and The Millions

After all the ups and downs Bitcoin (btc) is proving that investing in digital currencies isn’t for the faint of heart. Lately and based in Budapest I see all the recent developments of btc, just 4 years ago I managed to secure some healthy  positions  when it was worth about 24€ per btc then mid July 2017 it went up to 2500€ per btc and during the last two months it went up to over 7000€ per btc. 
After plunging as much as 29 percent from a record high following the cancellation of a technology upgrade on Nov. 8, the largest cryptocurrency came roaring back in early trading Monday before fluctuating between gains and losses.
“Crypto trading is not for the novice investor,” said John Spallanzani, chief macro strategist at GFI Securities LLC in New York.
While multiple reasons are being cited for the price volatility, one of the more viable is that some investors are switching to alternative coins. Bitcoin cash, an offshoot of bitcoin that includes many of the technical upgrades being debated by developers, has more than doubled in the same period, however I wouldn't suggest changing to other cryptocurrency alternatives since the only one I endorse and support is Bitcoin.
“We have seen similar steep falls in bitcoin throughout the year -- specifically in June and September -- but every time a considerable decline occurs, new investors jump in to experience the new asset class,” Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at ForexTime Ltd., a currency broker that uses the brand FXTM, wrote in a note Monday.
While markets had been focusing on bitcoin’s more than 500 percent surge this year, bitcoin cash was gaining popularity because of its larger block size. That’s a characteristic that makes transactions cheaper and faster than the original but I don't believe it could take over not yet.
When a faction of the cryptocurrency community canceled plans to increase bitcoin’s block size on Wednesday -- a move that would have created another offshoot -- some supporters of bigger blocks rallied around bitcoin cash.
The resulting volatility has been extreme even by bitcoin’s wild standards and comes amid growing interest in cryptocurrencies among regulators, banks and fund managers. While skeptics have called its rapid advance a bubble, the asset has become too big for many on Wall Street to ignore. Even after shrinking as much as $38 billion since Nov. 8, bitcoin boasts a market value of about $110 billion.
Supporters of bitcoin’s technology upgrade “are now switching support to bitcoin cash,” said Mike Kayamori, head of Tokyo-based Quoine, the world’s second most-active bitcoin exchange over the past day. “There’s a panic about what’s happening. People shouldn’t panic. Just hold on to both coins until we see how it plays out.”
The cancellation of last week’s bitcoin upgrade has left users to choose between the two versions of the cryptocurrency. On one side is the original bitcoin, powered by so-called SegWit technology, which aims to improve its performance by moving unessential data off of its underlying blockchain which eventually will have to evolve to be able to improve the blockchain. On the other we have bitcoin cash which we don't know too much about it.
Proponents of bitcoin cash believe their approach is simpler and closer to the original goal of bitcoin, which was described primarily as a payment system in its white paper. Supporters of the original bitcoin say that vision is too limited, and that by improving the blockchain with SegWit technology, bitcoin can become a new digital-asset class that not only supports payments but countless other functions.

Upgrade Called Off

While bitcoin cash has been around for months, it saw limited support as the community awaited last week’s technology upgrade for the original bitcoin, which promised similar features. Now that the upgrade has been called off, businesses that use the cryptocurrency primarily as a payment method are expected to increase adoption of bitcoin cash.
While bitcoin cash surged over the weekend, it hasn’t been a straight line up. The cryptocurrency was trading at $1,300 at 4:45 p.m. in New York, down from a high of about $2,478 on Sunday, Coinmarketcap.com prices show.
Bitcoin has been similarly volatile; it initially rose after news that it would avoid another split, but the gains were short-lived. Its plunge earlier Monday to as low as $5,605 compares with an intraday record $7,882 on Nov. 8.
I believe Bitcoin will still dominate the world of cryptocurrency and if you are hesitant to buy it, then you could also opt for the alternative of Investing in the stock market with The Bitcoin Group SE  a holding company focused on innovative and disruptive business models and technologies from the field of cryptocurrency and blockchain. 
The Bitcoin Group SE holds 100% of the shares of the Bitcoin Deutschland AG that operates the only German authorised trading platform for the digital currency bitcoin under the domain Bitcoin.de. and it is currently trading at a discounted price of 76€ per share. So there you have it, either buying bitcoins or Investing on them might be a move that should be made and for now let's just forget about bitcoin cash.
Meanwhile I don't want to hear about any other ICO's not even Bitcoin for a while so secure positions and see you with the Millions.
