News Week 45 / 2018 : Blockchain Winter Could Be Coming – But Fear Not

Once again bitcoin and cryptocurrency markets in general have been rather quiet with no major movements in any direction. Overall bitcoin has performed almost as a real, boring fiat currency during the 2018, though many still believe that a greater shift in some direction is yet to be seen. But if it doesn’t come, is it a bad thing? What if blockchain and cryptocurrency economies will develop slowly, carefully, without major hype and bubbling? It would sound almost healthy, and

News Week 44 / 2018 : Bitcoin is 10 Years Old

It has been a decade since the anonymous prophet of electrical currencies, Satoshi Nakamoto, published his (or her?) white paper detailing what the world would know as Bitcoin. After ten years, a lot has happened: what was once a minor treat and hobby for cryptoanarchists and coders has become a world-wide phenomena, which almost everyone knows and which can be actually used to transfer millions of dollars instantly to almost any place in the world without any bank, government or

Weekly News 41 / 2018 : Volatility is Even Lower as Markets Wait in Anticipation

As the week has passed, markets will still have to wait for the coming movement which many have predicted for weeks. During the last week the weekly average movement of bitcoin price was lowest in 15 months, breaking another record in stability. In weeks after the summer Bitcoin, in many ways, has acted as “the stable coin” for the cryptomarkets. The cryptocurrency markets have also broken another record, as the average volume of major bitcoin exchanges has fallen to lowest

The past month demonstrated the lowest Bitcoin volatility in over a year, with the price of bitcoin fluctuating in the range of less than 1 400 dollars. This low volatility has also been accompanied with a low number of transactions, as the markets have remained relatively calm during the beginning of autumn.

Weekly News 39 / 2018 : Bitcoin Volatility Lowest in Months

The entirety of the year 2018 – especially the summer – has been somewhat slow in the cryptomarkets, at least when compared to the overheated economy of last December, when most of the major cryptocurrencies bubbled up when billions of new money was pumped into the economy. For many speculators looking for quick profits it might not have been the best possible thing, but there’s also another side in the market movements. Several studies and new-found data suggests that Bitcoin

Many experts have been speculating that this waving motion can’t go on like this, with some major shift coming in the future. Of course – as the last weeks have clearly demonstrated – it is not so easy to predict the future, especially in field evolving as quickly as cryptocurrencies. This week we are going to

Weekly News 37 / 2018 : Markets Are Still on Unpredictable Waters

The passing week has been hard for cryptomarkets. Markets have shed billions of their total market cap and most of the major cryptocurrencies are seeing red. Probably because the last year was so good for Bitcoin and other cryptos following on its wake, this year has been – or at least – felt so quiet. Many are waiting for a drastic move on some direction, but whether the move will be upwards or downwards is anyone’s guess. Nonetheless it seems
