The old song about the main thing: Craig Wright once said that he is the real Satoshi Nakamoto

Principal investigator nChain Craig Wright again made a public statement that he is the Creator of Bitcoin. Recall that Wright included in the small circle of “suspects” who actually could be Satoshi Nakamoto.

Another “trick” Craig this time has caused confusion and even anger, cryptocommunist. Last time he said about his attitude to the creation of major cryptocurrency in November 2018. Then Craig Wright in the heat of debate on the eve of the hard forks of Bitcoin Cash in the e-mail correspondence with Roger Ver spoke again about his alleged direct relation to the development of Bitcoin.

Satoshi Nakamoto among us

At this time, Wright has published in a Medium post with the eloquent title “Be careful what you wish for”. The researcher nChain spoke about his “journey” on the way to the idea of Bitcoin, comparing yourself with Steve jobs.

“When Steve jobs was starting out, he was an outsider. He was many times rejected, but he fought for the right to build something every day. My attempts to create an alternative version of his first creations are contrary to my beliefs. And yet I allow myself to be in this situation.”

According to him, he did not expect to create a “anonymous system of money transfer”. He even despised people like the Creator of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange and Ross Ulbricht.

“They are not freedom fighters, they are not libertarians. They are simply predators, which represent the antithesis of what Bitcoin was created.”

Moreover, Bitcoin “needs” to function fully within the law with maximum transparency. Any user in the network of cryptocurrency (ostensibly on the idea of Wright) must be easy to find without “paperwork”. Finally, the last words the treatment of Wright was still a statement.:

“I Am Satoshi Nakamoto”

Radio: a hacker hacked a satellite to transmit messages about Bitcoin

The hacker, who supposedly lives in Eastern Europe, managed to hack into a satellite in orbit. Now he sends it via an encrypted message in a post-apocalyptic style. One of the first noticed something was wrong the user under the name grubles. He stumbled upon a strange log when I looked through the logs of the satellite.

Message from space

DAY 1

The file must be greater than 1 kilobyte, so it’s time for stories. I discovered Bitcoin during the era of the Silk Road, but did not follow cryptocurrency closely, as it considered it too complicated. I again drew attention to Bitcoin in 2016, a year later I have actively invested in the industry. Last year was amazing — I sent your first payment to Lightning Network and was fascinated by the speed and potential of microtransactions in bitcoin.

And here I am, quit my job, make the first node on raspberry pi and relaying messages via satellite. Strange feeling. If you want to support an anonymous developer from the former Soviet Union, thank you. My dream is to generate 1 bitcoin. I think that’s enough for the future.

DAY 2

Still can’t imagine that I convey their message to a large portion of Land on their own, instantly. Interestingly, someone reads my messages? Maybe part of the photons will go into space for billions of years.

DAY 3

I wonder how long I will be able to convey your message to Earth?

DAY 4

Love you.

DAY 5

Can’t decide what’s cooler is to use a satellite to transmit these silly messages to Land or to make instant payments to Lightning Network? Both options are cool. I think someday I will tell this story to your grandchildren. Perhaps in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, but still. Without Bitcoin I wouldn’t have so much faith in the future.

DAY 6

I want to create a website that is impossible to ban, censor or delete. On it everyone can talk about what you want and nobody will be able to delete anything, even your own posts. I hate it when people post something on Facebook or Twitter, and then delete the post. Everyone must answer for his words.

I think Bitcoin, Lightning, IPFS and other technologies needed to achieve my goal. Perhaps now is the computing capacity of a network is not enough, but he’ll definitely grow in the future.

DAY 7

Two days ago I ran in the Park puppy. I stroked him, and he didn’t want it to return to its owner. Good day.

DAY 8

I still can’t get used to it. I use the satellite it’s even better than the plot for sci-fi. I have to install a plate to determine the forwarding of their messages. On Twitter say that everything is working.

Kryptonim: Experts expect a new wave of the financial crisis, and the media write about the bursting of the Bitcoin bubble

Experts expect a new wave of the financial crisis, and the media write about the bursting of the Bitcoin bubble. The paradox lies in the fact that the stock and cryptocurrency markets alike are subject to cycles. Bitcoin correction is commonplace, and not a horseman of the Apocalypse.

One of the largest in the history of world financial crises happened in 2008. It was caused by the collapse of the mortgage obligations in the United States. What could cause the next recession? The head of the Federal reserve Janet Yellen (Janet Yellen) believe that the new culprit is corporate debt — again in the United States. Over the past eleven years, the debt increased 4.9 to 9.1 trillion dollars.

The crisis of 2008 inspired a film Studio Paramount the creation of the film “shorting” (The Big Short, 2015). Trading is so arranged that in the fall too, can make money. At a time when the public believes in perpetual growth, when the real estate market recoilless flying to the moon, there are traders who risk all their funds in order to bet on a market collapse.

Compared to traders of the stock market of the middle of the two thousandth, we are in a more advantageous situation, because the correction of Bitcoin — it is far not a unique event. History of Bitcoin knows four market cycle:

1. 2011-12: a 48-week upward trend.

2012: a 22-week downtrend (-93%).

2. 2012-13: 72 weeks uptrend.

2013: 12 weeks downtrend (-80%).

3. 2013: 20 weeks uptrend.

2013-14: 58 weeks downtrend (-86%).

4. 2015-17: 152 weeks uptrend.

2018: 52-week downtrend (-84%).

It is easy to calculate that the average correction of these cycles was about 86%. Thus, the current Bitcoin market cycle shows price reduction that can not be called extreme. It is quite common for major cryptocurrencies.

The study of history is useful because it allows you to predict how deep can drop Bitcoin. In the case that the correction will amount to 86% in 2014, price will fall to $ 2800. Finally, in the limiting case (correction 93%) we have a chance to see Bitcoin at $ 1400, however, it is clear that this is the least likely scenario.

The current century has examples of much more severe drops in local markets. Imagine that in 2013 you impressed by the fact that the power in Venezuela came President Nicolas Maduro. You decided to make an investment and put, say, one million dollars in Venezuelan bolivars. If you are standing, it is best to get: today a million dollars you would still be 37 cents (correction 99,999963%).

The stronger cooling of the cryptocurrency market, the more you hear talk about the fact that the current correction in Bitcoin plays an important role trade outside exchanges. In English-language publications off-exchange trading is commonly referred to by the acronym OTC (Over-The-Counter).

In November 2018, the head of the exchange Binance, Chanpen Zhao (Changpeng Zhao) said that the OTC-market, at least not less than the stock market. If we compare this statement of the head of the largest data website Coinmarketcap about capitalization and daily volume of trade Bitcoins, we can conclude that every day, about the eighth part of all the in circulation bitcoin change for their owners outside the stock exchange.

The OTC gives the opportunity to conduct significant transactions in bitcoin without a significant impact on the exchange rate, however, that exchange rate is a guide for anyone interested in the current state of Affairs. It turns out that this course is not a market, and it may be artificial, due to the collusion behind the scenes, OTC. Shady deals allow you to buy Bitcoin from miners, not obvalivaya its price on the exchange, and at the same time accumulating on the cold wallets huge amounts of cryptocurrency, we need to manipulate the exchange rate. To coordinate these steps allows the mechanism cryptopedia: before every major price movement of the owners of big purses get small transfers of Bitcoin, encoded commands on the sale or purchase

Year ago started trading futures bitcoin. On since then, full correction you could very well earn. It was enough at the peak of prices to bet on a fall and close the deal at the end of 2018. In contrast to the situation in the middle of the two thousandth’s, when the mortgage crisis still seemed unimaginable event, this short would not require a trader impartial thinking and courage. It was enough to wield the levers of OTC trading in Bitcoin.

Experts in the field of trading have the same opinion on how the market will react cryptocurrency to a new financial crisis. They say that many of the investments in the crypt are venture in nature, that is, use the means of external investors. So as soon as there are problems of a global nature, the first sector, where capital will flee, will the cryptocurrency market.

“Future generations will remember the year 2019 as the beginning of an era of new possibilities.” (C) John McAfee

But there is another point of view. The recession of 2008 was the strongest since the great depression, and it led to the creation of Bitcoin in 2009. The coming world crisis will strike first of all on Vietnam currencies — the dollar, Euro, pound, yen — all the money that is not backed by precious metals. All known in the history of mankind Fiat currencies have turned to zero, and they were provided only with confidence in their governments.

Venezuela seeks recovery from hyperinflation in bitcoin El Petro. Many countries will follow the example of Venezuela and will launch its own national currency, minted in the blockchain. Bitcoin will claim the role of a quiet harbour in the world.

They discussed Bitcoin and how he met cryptosphere. For starters, Lee said on the tenth anniversary of the publication of whitpaper Bitcoin and said that was very involved in activities in Cryptoprotected. He didn’t even notice that flew these years.

“I’m really surprised that so many years have passed. I have the feeling that I only yesterday learned about Bitcoin, although I first read about him back in 2011. Yes… just an amazing ten years.”

He further confessed to how really acquainted with Bitcoin. He read about the coin in the article about Silk Road, the most famous online market where in payment accepted bitcoins. This aroused his interest in the new form of digital currency that is resistant to censorship and is a much more sound form of money than the existing.

7 facts that you probably didn’t know about Vitalice Uterine

Acne Buterin – the man who invented Ethereum is one of the most significant figures in the world of cryptocurrency. He started to get the blockchain technology in 2011. In this article we will tell you seven facts about Uterine, which you probably didn’t know.

Vitalik wrote withpaper Ethereum at the age of 19 years.

Vitalik was only 19 years old when he invented his version of the cryptocurrency. One of the most important differences between bitcoin and Ethereum and other cryptocurrencies existed at that time was the introduction of the concept of smart contracts. Smart contracts can be implemented using Ethereum virtual machine (EVM). It was a huge breakthrough, which allowed will appear decentralized applications on the Ethereum blockchain.

He learned about bitcoin from his father at the age of 17 years

It was his father, Dmitry Buterin, a serial entrepreneur, spoke about bitcoin Vitalik when he was 17 years old.

He was a Prodigy

When his parents moved from Russia to Canada, he was enrolled in primary school. After he switched in third grade, the school administration decided to transfer him to a class for gifted children. It was there that he began to deal with the economy, programming and mathematics. It soon became clear that he could easily produce arithmetic operations with three-digit numbers in mind.

State Buterin is estimated in 400-500 million dollars

According to some estimates, as Vitalik estimated to be about 400-500 million dollars. Approximately the same amount of its assets in Ethereum and BTC.

Acne Buterin also a good writer

He began to write for various forums related to cryptocurrency until I started writing on a blog devoted to the cryptocurrency. The blog owner agreed to pay him in bitcoins in the amount of 5BTC for each approved post. He later became a co-founder of Bitcoin Magazine is one of the most famous cryptocurrency publications.

Acne Buterin about EOS, Bitcoin, Monero, Ethereum and zcash for

Ethereum Creator Vitalik Buterin shared his thoughts about which blockchain systems are the most promising in his view.

In a new video on YouTube channel zcash for, Buterin explained why he is against the block chain with edinom the decision-making body, such as EOS, where users choose their representatives, who keep the network running.

A couple of years ago I probably would speak out in support Tezos-EOS, who believe that the blockchain needs to be managed. But now? I’m totally against that, I think it’s a crazy idea.

EOS has 21 representative, who shall be selected by vote. To become a representative, you need to have sufficient stock of EOS or to holders of a sufficient number of EOS voted for you.

Also read – acne Buterin: cryptocurrencies will never grow up “1000 times”

In the last election was attended by 17% of owners EOS. Candidate who received the greatest number of votes is Bitfinex. And Bitfinex has only about 3.5% of all votes. Of these 3,5% 1,8% belong directly to Bitfinex. And the other 1.7 percent – just random people. Thus, the positioning of 1.8%, Bitfinex could single-handedly become one of the 21 delegates.

And that gives them this privilege? Basically, it gives them the option of receiving 1% per annum of funds allocated for delegates EOS. Thus, the voting mechanism makes this converges Pro-plutocratic effect, where if you’re big enough and have more than 1.8% of all the coins you can actually buy a place of the delegate and it will give you the opportunity to earn even more money.

Buterin also explained why he advocates the control outside the network.

Ultimately, from the point of view of the quality of decision-making, I believe that the management of Bitcoin was pretty bad because it is excessively conservative and appreciates very specific things in a much more large scale than most real users of this technology.

But besides this, I think Ethereum is quite capable of improving functions, which, I think, interested ordinary users. Guide zcash for great progress in its road map, which I think zcash for investors very happy. Bitcoin Cash begins to implement changes. There are many new blockchain projects. Monero makes the forks every six months.

And I don’t see all these blockchains that are not managed centralizovana had some problems with the decision-making.
