Bitcoin is around in the market since late 2008 but it only started making the news in early 2013. It is cryptocurrency and a payment system also; the main advantage is being that transactions are anonymous and peer-to-peer. Bitcoin’s unique architecture is set-up in such a way that their creation gets progressively more resource-intensive and total production will be limited to 21 million Bitcoins

There are various cryptocurrencies are out there like Ethereum, litecoin, ripple etc. are the different platform but Bitcoin is something different as it is a consensus network which enables a new payment system and it is a completely digital money. So, Bitcoin is the first decentralized peer-to-peer payment network that is powered by its users with no central authority or middlemen. From a user perspective, Bitcoin is something more prescribed by everyone out there.

BTC is Most Trusted, compared to Ethereum, Litecoin & others

There may be facts comes when you don’t want to trust on bitcoin at all. But in comparison to other cryptocurrencies in the market like Ethereum, ripple, and others, Bitcoin is quite more trustable from all of them because it is a fully open-source decentralized platform. It means anyone can access anytime with all of its source codes whereas, in another cryptocurrency platform, this is not allowed.

 

Virtual or immaterial

Bitcoin is virtual as the online banking networks used by peoples. Bitcoin can be used to pay online and physical stores same as any other online store. Bitcoin can also be exchanged as in physical coins like Denarium coins, but if you are paying with mobile then it will be more convenient.

 

Taxes on Bitcoin

Bitcoin is not like as fiat currency with legal tenders in any status in any jurisdiction, but often tax liability accrues regardless of the medium used for that. There is a wide variety of legislation out there in many different jurisdictions which may cause income, sales, payroll, capital gains or some other forms of tax liability to arise with Bitcoin.

 

No replacement for Bitcoin. Period.

For now, Bitcoin is the only source and it will remain the same in future as well. There is no need to worry if someone creates any new digital currency because there can be no guarantee that it will remain the Bitcoin value. As there is already alternative currency out there inspired by Bitcoin but it cannot be going to replace it. Though there might be some changes or upgradation requires in the future remaining the same while other currencies keep introduces.

 

So with all these facts and states are enough to prove that Bitcoin currency will always remain the same in the coming future as well.

The Current Bitcoin Market Scenario: Price Manipulation by Whales

Published

The crypto markets started the last week with a different Euphoria. Each and every trader watched as Bitcoin rallied past $7000 to an astonishing $8000.

The crypto markets started the last week with a different Euphoria. Each and every trader watched as Bitcoin rallied past $7000 to an astonishing $8000. However, at the dawn of Friday, 17th May they woke up to a different scenario. The bitcoin gap just went lower by about 20% or over $1500. As a result of that, the rest of the crypto market was brought down. Some traders were caught unawares while others had foreseen it. The question on every person’s mind was what just happened and which direction should be taken now.

 

It all started on the Bitstamp exchange at about 10 pm ET on Thursday, 16th May. At that time, numerous crypto traders honed in the rather suspicious sell wall. The trader placed a sell order for 3,645BTC (c. $22m) on the exchange. It was formed at a moment when the Bitcoin market liquidity was at its lowest. It especially happens on a singular exchange.

 

The immediate reaction was to reduce the price of Bitcoin on Bitstamp. You could even view the spread in cost between other exchanges and Bitstamp. Such exchanges could include Kraken and Coinbase. As a result of the crypto market arbitrage, the prices on other similar exchanges followed the same track. Bitcoin would fall across the board. The rest of the market sank. It is due to the correlation of the other crypto assets with bitcoin. However, there was far more on the move than just a mere massive Bitcoin selling.

 

What occurred with the wall was an example of cryptocurrency spoofing. On a clear observation, one could notice that the selling wall decreased by the coming of more orders that matched it. This kept occurring as Bitcoin passed through $7500, then $7000 and thereby hitting around $6200. In the end, the sell was completely consumed albeit at a seemingly reduced price.

 

Then, once the cost had hit around the $6200 level, there was another massive buy well that was created on the same exchange ($11m). It could have brought about the sudden recovery that we have noticed in the price greater than $7000. It gave a clear evident of cryptocurrency spoofing in reality.

 

The gentleman or lady behind this doing was clearly attempting to impact the price. There are very few surplus explanations to answer why they would have issued an order of that magnitude at that moment. If an individual had the desire to trade a huge block of Bitcoin at the most suitable price, they would attempt to facilitate an OTC deal. It would be of minimum impact on the market.

 

Furthermore, the timing of a massive buy wall immediately after the trade wall coming to light is suspicious. It is either the orders were greatly coordinated or completed by rather the same party. Similarly, this can also occur on the reverse as sellers place large buy wells. Back in April, something of the sought happened. It was as an individual trader placed a massive order through. It was at a seemingly illiquid moment.

 

Spoofing is something that is considered illegal at the traditional financial markets. However, it is given the unlimited character of the cryptocurrency markets. On the other hand, whales tend to have free reign. However, a question pops up, why would a whale have an urge to tank the market in that way? The solution could lie in a completely distinct market.

Kevin O’Leary calls Bitcoin Worthless

Famous as the founder of Softkey, a startup that earns annual revenue of around $29 million and a host on the American business reality series Shark Tank, Kevin O’Leary is a celebrity amongst the business class in the United States of America.

 

During the interview published on 14th May 2019, Kevin expressed his thoughts over the king of cryptocurrencies bitcoin and called it a useless currency as the people who accept it just wants to hedge against the high volatility of the virtual currency. This comes in the midst of the current bitcoin surge as the virtual currency doubled its value in just a few days from below $4000 to more than $8000.

 

Kevin also explained why he has such negative views on bitcoin giving the instance of how once he tried using bitcoin for a real estate transaction in Switzerland. He said that it is not possible to get in and out of bitcoin while transacting in huge amounts.

 

He also gave an example stating that if one wants to buy real estate in Switzerland for $10 million. The seller wants a guarantee that the value comes back to him as currency at ten and the buyer has to hedge the risk of the cryptocurrency, hence it is not a real currency. Kevin said that the seller or the receiver would never want to take the risk of such high volatility and thus BTC is worthless.
