‘Satoshi’s Useful Idiot’ Zuckerberg Will Boost Bitcoin Price Beyond $20,000: Max Keiser

By CCN Markets: Crypto bull Max Keiser has predicted that Facebook’s cryptocurrency Libra will help boost the bitcoin price to new all-time highs. Bitcoin price to go up with increasing hash rate According to Keiser, this is because Libra will increase the awareness and appeal of cryptocurrencies in general. Consequently, this will raise Bitcoin’s hash rate up leading to a new record price. It’s built into the protocol’s genesis block that eventually a heavyweight like $fb would take on BTC. This increased awareness and appeal to would-be potentates will, of course, drive the hashrate to new highs, leading to new The post ‘Satoshi’s Useful Idiot’ Zuckerberg Will Boost Bitcoin Price Beyond $20,000: Max Keiser appeared first on CCN Markets

Facebook’s GlobalCoin is a Threat to XRP and LTC: Max Keiser

Coinspeaker Facebook’s GlobalCoin is a Threat to XRP and LTC: Max KeiserCan Facebook’s GlobalCoin present a major threat to XRP and other cryptocurrencies?Bitcoin expert Max Keiser thinks it can. He tweeted:The $FB global stable coin… FaceCoin obviates need for hundreds of alt-cons including XRP. The alt-coin apocalypse is nigh. This will drive Bitcoin higher, as BTC competes with Gold, not fiat. (Also, crypto ‘payments’ companies likely to wiped out). https://t.co/w38jmtn7RN— Max Keiser, tweet poet. (@maxkeiser) June 7, 2019He thinks that GlobalCoin will render altcoins irrelevant and sees the Facebook coin obliterating payments and remittance companies leveraging cryptocurrencies. The only one who will survive this – will be Bitcoin.GlobalCoin has created a thrill since its announced. The company said that one of the best things is the possibility of this coin to offer hassle-free peer-to-peer payment services as well as other microtransactions.That means that Facebook’s coin will stand in competition with Litecoin and XRP offering the cheap and quick transactions.With Keiser agrees Charlie Shrem, founder of Bitcoin Foundation who stated that the social media giant intends to make companies pay 10 million dollars, in order to certify them as validators. According to him, this alone is enough to render Ripple ineffective.He said:“Facebook is launching their global crypto coin called “Libra”. What’s interesting is they are offering companies to pay $10m to become “validators”. If anything, it renders Ripple useless. The first companies to create a LIBRA/BITCOIN exchange will make a killing!”José Maria Macedo, Head of Advisory at blockchain advisory firm, AmaZix, on the other hand thinks that through Facebook and Whatsapp, potentially hundreds of millions of people will use GlobalCoin.“It has the potential to be bigger than the US dollar in terms of numbers of users.”With him agrees senior market analyst at eToro Mati Greenspan who tweeted:Facebook coin isn't a competitor to Bitcoin, it's a competitor to the Dollar.— Mati Greenspan (@MatiGreenspan) June 9, 2019There is however one solution that makes all options irrelevant.Oliver Woodhouse, a financial services regulatory lawyer at Capital Law, says that we should look at this as an opportunity to introduce billions of people to innovative and emerging technology that has the potential to revolutionize the payment and remittance market.Woodhouse is saying that this will mean a significant think for “unbanked” areas of the world, where individuals may not be able to open a bank account, but otherwise have internet access and a social media account. Also, there are rumors that Facebook is going to specifically target developing nations which have domestic currencies of volatile nature like Zimbabwe or Venezuela.One thing is certain, after June 18, things will never be the same again.Facebook’s GlobalCoin is a Threat to XRP and LTC: Max Keiser

Max Keiser: Facebook’s Crypto to Kill XRP & Altcoins, Boost Bitcoin (BTC)

Globalcoin, An XRP Killer? Facebook’s soon-to-launch crypto asset has been called many things: a Bitcoin-killer; regulators’ Trojan horse into the cryptocurrency space; and a ploy to make George Orwell’s “1984” a reality are among what some pundits have deemed the asset. Today, another pseudonym has been attributed to the technology giant’s cryptocurrency, rumored to be a stablecoin meant for the company’s billions of clients. This pseudonym, according to Bitcoin bull Max Keiser, is an XRP-killer. On Twitter this week, the long-time anti-establishment figure, known for his segment on RT, claimed that Facebook’s digital asset, dubbed “Globalcoin” according to some reports, “obviates [the] need for hundreds of alt-cons including XRP.” Keiser goes on to state that the altcoin apocalypse is nigh, looking to the fact that Globalcoin will likely decimate any need for any other digital medium of exchange, save for Bitcoin, which also acts as a store of value. Although the white paper for Facebook’s project has yet to be released, many speculate that it will act as an easy-to-use stable medium of exchange. It isn’t clear whether or not Globalcoin will be used in a banking setting, just as XRP is trying to, but it likely sure could, especially considering that preliminary reports state that operators of Facebook’s nodes will need to pay $10 million. The $FB global stable coin… FaceCoin obviates need for hundreds of alt-cons including XRP. The alt-coin apocalypse is nigh. This will drive Bitcoin higher, as BTC competes with Gold, not fiat. (Also, crypto ‘payments’ companies likely to wiped out). https://t.co/w38jmtn7RN— Max Keiser, tweet poet. (@maxkeiser) June 7, 2019 Per the investor, who has claimed that he expects for Bitcoin to reach $100,000 with due time, the death of altcoins will actually drive up the value of Bitcoin, as BTC “competes with gold, not fiat”. This is in reference to the idea that if altcoins were to die, investors would look to store their money in Bitcoin, not back into the world of traditional finance, which many see is rife with centralization concerns and macroeconomic tumult. Some have been even more cynical, however, stating that not only will Facebook’s cryptocurrency hurt Ripple, but fail altogether. Charlie Shrem, the founder of the now-defunct Bitinstant, explained that Globalcoin “renders Ripple useless”, and that the first companies to make exchanges for Globalcoin-to-Bitcoin will “make a killing”. Facebook is launching their global crypto coin called “Libra”. What’s interesting is they are offering companies to pay $10m to become “validators”. If anything, it renders Ripple useless 😂. The first companies to create a LIBRA/BITCOIN exchange will make a killing!— Charlie Shrem (@CharlieShrem) June 8, 2019 How Facebook Could Boost Bitcoin Could Facebook’s coin really boost Bitcoin, though? According to Ari Paul, the founder of BlockTower Capital, it’s entirely possible. In a tweet storm, Paul explained that while centralized cryptocurrencies are inherently “uninteresting” to fervent crypto crusaders, who are enamored with censorship resistance, immutability, security, and peer-to-peer systems, they will directly “increase global interest dramatically.” Laying out a hypothetical scenario, the BlockTower chief investment officer notes that 30 million of Facebookcoin users (10% of Paul’s hypothetical audience of 300 million) could eventually “stumble across Bitcoin,” meaning that the (decentralized) cryptocurrency’s community would double in size, no questions asked. Not only would this bolster adoption, but this influx of users would also increase Bitcoin’s network effects, thus increasing the value of BTC.

‘Bankers Know They Can’t Stop Bitcoin’ – Says Max Keiser

Max Keiser has delivered a swift putdown of a US regulator head after he warned national TV cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin are prone to manipulation. SEC Rejects Treating BTC Like Stocks Speaking to CNBC, Jay Clayton, chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), said that fiat markets had controls over malpractice which decentralized alternatives lack. He was debating within the context of US regulatory treatment of Bitcoin 00, which continues as a patchwork, with investors facing a raft of perspectives depending on state and structure. The idea of applying the same rules – and trust – to crypto as to markets such as stocks, was unappealing to Clayton. “…Our retail investors look at [cryptocurrency trading] and say, ‘That looks like a stock or a bond; it trades,’” he told the network’s Squawk Box segment. We have sophisticated rules and surveillance to ensure that people are not manipulating the stock market. Those cryptocurrency markets by and large do not have that. Those comments particularly irked Keiser, former Wall Street trader and host of the Keiser Report, he said had “proven” the SEC was not loyal to its own statements. “The problem is, the SEC, although having rules against manipulating markets, DOES NOT ENFORCE, OR SELECTIVELY ENFORCES THE RULES,” he wrote on Twitter following Clayton’s interview. We have proven this to be true dozens of times on (Keiser Report). Keiser: Banks Will Distract From Bitcoin While Keiser did not mention specific examples, his comments point to a broader apathy among cryptocurrency users as authorities both within and outside the US try – and in their view often fail – to respond adequately to the phenomenon. As Bitcoinist reported, approaches tend to lack nuance, with lawmakers sweeping under the carpet the fact that, at its core, Bitcoin has no central authority.  The issue formed a central part of a recent significant debate for Saifedean Ammous, a serial Bitcoin bull and author of reference guide ‘The Bitcoin Standard.’ Pitting himself against gold bug Peter Schiff, Ammous said that while it was impossible to say with certainty that government machinations would not increase Bitcoin’s centralization, it would still remain fundamentally independent. “My point is that even in the worst case scenario Bitcoin can support thousands of final clearance banks, which is thousands more than the single-node USD or gold systems of the last century,” he summarized. “It thus has a much better chance at resisting centralization. I can’t promise it will!” Keiser was similarly dismissive of the banking sector. Despite a raft of centralized altcoins appearing in recent times, their underlying one-dimensional status would ultimately fail to refocus consumer attention away from decentralized competitors. “Banksters know now they can’t stop (Bitcoin). What they’ll try is a bear hug. They’ll try to crowd BTC out of the market by flooding the globe with their centralized crypto,” he added. The idea is to try and marginalize BTC. Fortunately, their own corruption will kill them. What do you think about Max Keiser’s forecast and Jay Clayton’s regulatory outlook? Let us know in the comments below!

Bitcoin: Max Keiser, Erik Voorhees and others argue if Satoshi created Bitcoin as p2p electronic cash or gold 2.0

Bitcoin’s whitepaper intrigued a lot of people across the world as Satoshi Nakamoto was the first person to create an e-cash/digital cash by solving the double spend problem. Ever since its inception, the price of Bitcoin has been highly speculative and its use case has often been discussed/argued by various proponents of Bitcoin. In the whitepaper, Satoshi Nakamoto described Bitcoin as “peer-to-peer electronic cash”, which obviously resonated wildly with Roger Ver, who is responsible for Bitcoin Cash, which according to him, is the actual Bitcoin. However, other people in the community have different opinions about this topic and consider Bitcoin to be a store of value like gold. Dan Hedl tweeted: Bitcoin isn’t a cheap PayPal for coffee It was purpose built day one to be a Gold 2.0. HODLers are users! How hard is that to understand? https://t.co/tXcv1mO5qJ — Dan Hedl (@danheld) May 31, 2019 Erik Voorhees, the CEO of ShapeShift, argued that Bitcoin was purpose-built since day 1, and the purpose was to be a “peer-to-peer electronic cash” as described by Satoshi Nakamoto in the whitepaper. Voorhees, however, confirmed that it has “arguably become gold 2.0”. Dan Hedl disagreed has he tweeted: I disagree, and encourage you to read this tweet storm where I comprehensively covered Bitcoin’s purpose:https://t.co/Fa4PwqKf6u — Dan Hedl (@danheld) May 31, 2019 Max Keiser stepped in as he replied: “Replace ‘Cash’ in white paper with ‘Gold’. Satoshi semantically interchange(d) cash with Gold. This is where R. Ver got confused (and others) who misinterpreted cash in White Paper as referring to fiat.” The opinionated topic created a healthy debate in the community, however, a lot of people in the community believe that Bitcoin will act as a store of value in the near future and that people would switch from Gold to Bitcoin. The reason for the above is that Bitcoin transactions are slow and expensive at times, which has led to the development of various solutions like, Lightning Network, SegWit, etc to solve Bitcoin’s inherent problems so that it can be used as a means of payment.

Coin Source Will Bring Dai to Its ATM Users

Stable currencies are all the rage as of late, primarily because they aren’t prone to the price swings and volatility one often witnesses with mainstream digital assets such as Ethereum and Litecoin. If you want to invest in crypto but are nervous about the prospects, stable currencies could be the answer. Now, they’re earning an even larger boost through companies like Coin Source, a Texas-based operator of cryptocurrency ATMs. Coin Source Brings Stability to Crypto The venture recently announced that it would be adding the stable asset Dai to its many ATMs located throughout the southern United States this summer. The addition of the coin is “in preparation” for what the company calls a widespread remittance program, in which workers will be able to send money home to their families in the form of Dai or other cryptocurrencies that they can trade or sell. Travis Gough, chief product officer at Coin Source, comments: In remittances, people want to save as much value and they don’t want to be subjected to the high volatility that you’re seeing in bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies that can be very speculative. Price swings are a persistent worry in the crypto space, and likely never to leave enthusiasts’ minds fully. At the same time, it’s easy to suggest that currencies like bitcoin are suddenly easier to accept given these swings are now traveling north. Since April of this year, bitcoin has been enjoying a serious bull run, having jumped by nearly 200 percent in just the last three months alone. After a lengthy period of traveling through the doldrums at the mid-$3,000 range, the currency began its new string of price spikes last April with a sudden (and unexpected) jump to $5,000. The good news this time around is that bitcoin’s sudden behavior is likely being sparked more by market trends, which will make this bull run more stable than the one that occurred in 2017, reportedly the subject of manipulation by users of the stable currency tether. Along with bitcoin, currencies like Litecoin have also surged in price, heightening the crypto space’s present levels of legitimacy. A New and Improved Way to Send Money The Coin Source remittance service – which will at first be available to customers only in the United States – will allow ATMs to transfer Dai and other digital assets between wallets. Once a customer receives funds, they can forward them to the wallets of selected parties granted those parties have satisfied all of Coin Source’s know-your-customer (KYC) requirements. Receiving individuals can then confirm the funds and trade or sell them accordingly. All transactions occurring by way of Coin Source are recorded onto the Ethereum blockchain. At press time, the company operates more than 230 ATMs in nearly 30 states and in Washington D.C. The post Coin Source Will Bring Dai to Its ATM Users appeared first on Live Bitcoin News.
