FUD-Busting: Will China’s Digital Yuan Destroy the Dollar and Be Good for Bitcoin?

Many headlines have been written lately about China‘s Central Bank-driven digital yuan experiment. Recent stories point to over 3 Billion yuan in transaction volume over the past few moBeth’s. The commentary points to the looming threat this has over the US dollar and how any moment now the digital yuan will take over the dollar’s position as a world reserve currency.
I think these headlines are poor sources of information. China is a fascist state. Its central bank digital strategies are really efforts to monitor and control inflows and outflows of its own currency, just as it currently does. It operates an internal yuan and an external yuan. These two currencies don’t mix. They are not the same thing. The external-facing yuan is a way for China to control the inflow and outflow of money related to investment and exports and imports with the country. The internal yuan is the savings instrument and trade currency for the residents of China.
By separating them, China is able to prevent the kind of hot money investment flows that are sometimes detrimental to a nation’s currency. With such a separation of a so-called currency value system, I find it highly unlikely that a digital yuan becomes the replacement global currency for managing the economic expansion of third world and developing countries as China seems to be alluding to. It cannot replace the US petrodollar, because other economies don’t want exposure to a weak currency liKe the yuan, which is only useful to the Chinese And isn’t a good medium of exchange outside of the country. Foreign governments would have to trade off lots of control for managing their money and their investments if they even thought to enter china and make investments that locked in their money flows into this kind of currency.
In short, the digital yuan is not sound money. It’s fascist money. It’s control and command money. It’s a weak operating system. Long live the USD. In this scenario, Bitcoin is a much more preferred investment vehicle And the true example of sound money, as it will not be operated or controlled by any government.

Forex Trading in Kenya.

Someone posted on here a few days ago asking about forex and forex trading in Kenya, I have gone through the responses and clearly, most people don’t have an idea. It is 3am in the morning and am in a good mood so let me make this post. This will be a comprehensive and lengthy post so grab a pen and paper and sit down. We’ll be here a while.
FIRST OF ALL, who am I..?
I am a forex trader, in Nairobi, Kenya..i have been actively involved in forex since I found out about it in Feb 2016 when I somehow ended up in a wealth creation seminar (lol) in pride inn Westlands, the one close to Mpaka Rd. Luckily for me, it was not one of those AIM global meetings or I’d be on Facebook selling God knows what those guys sell. I did not take it seriously till August of the same year and I have been active ever since.
I don’t teach, mentor or sell a course or signals, I trade my own money. I am also posting from a throwaway account because I don’t want KRA on my ass.
What the fuck is forex and forex trading.
In simple plain English, forex is like the stock market but for currencies. Stock Market = Shares, forex = currencies. If you want more in-depth explanation, google is your friend.
These currencies are pegged on specific countries, united states- dollar, UK- pound, euro zone- euro, Switzerland- Swiss franc, Kenya- Kenya shilling.. you get the point. Now, there are specific events and happenings between these economies that affect the movement and values of the currencies, driving their value (purchasing power up and down). Forex trading exploits these movements to make money. When the value is going up, we buy and vice versa (down –sell)
Is forex trading illegal in Kenya? Is it a scam?
Illegal, no. scam, no. All the banks in the world do it (KCB made about 4 billion from trading forex in 2019)
Have there been scams involving forex in Kenya?
Yes. Here is one that happened recently. This one is the most infamous one yet. Best believe that this is not the end of these type of scams because the stupidity, greed and gullibility of human beings is unfathomable.
However, by the end of this post, I hope you won’t fall for such silliness.
What next how do I make it work..?
Am glad you asked. Generally, there are two ways to go about it. One, you teach yourself. This is the equivalent of stealing our dad’s car and hoping that the pedal you hit is the brake and not the accelerator. It is the route I took, it is the most rewarding and a huge ego boost when you finally make it on your own. Typically, this involves scouring the internet for hours upon hours going down rabbit holes, thinking you have made it telling all your friends how you will be a millionaire then losing all your money. Some people do not have the stomach for that.
The second route is more practical, structured and smarter.
First Learn the basics. There is a free online forex course at www.babypips.com/learn/forex this is merely an introductory course. Basically it is learning the parts of a car before they let you inside the car.
Second, start building your strategy. By the time you are done with the babypips, you will have a feel of what the forex market is, what interests you, etc. Tip..Babypips has a lot of garbage. It is good for introductory purposes but not good for much else, pick whatever stick to you or jumps at you the first time. Nonsense like indicators should be ignored.
The next step is now the most important. Developing the skill and building your strategy. As a beginner, you want to exhaust your naivety before jumping into the more advanced stuff. Eg can you identify a trend, what is a pair, what is position sizing, what is metatrader 4 and how to operate it, what news is good for a currency, when can I trade, what are the different trading sessions, what is technical analysis, what is market sentiment, what are bullish conditions what is emotion management, how does my psychology affect my trading (more on this later) an I a swing, scalper or day trader etc
Mentors and forex courses.. you have probably seen people advertising how they can teach and mentor you on how to trade forex and charging so much money for it. Somehow it seems that these people are focused on the teaching than the trading. Weird, right..? Truth is trading is hard, teaching not quite. A common saying in the industry is “Those who can’t trade, teach” you want to avoid all these gurus on Facebook and Instagram, some are legit but most are not. Sifting the wheat from the chaff is hard but I did that for you. The info is available online on YouTube, telegram channels etc. am not saying not to spend money on a course, if you find a mentor whose style resonates with you and the course is reasonably priced, please, go ahead and buy..it will cut your learning curve in half. People are different. What worked for me might not work for you.
Here are some nice YouTube channels to watch. These guys are legit..
  1. Sam sieden
  2. Cuebanks
  3. TheCoinFx
  4. The trading channel
  5. Astro
  6. Forex family
  7. Wicksdontlie
Advanced stuff
  1. ICT
After a short period of time, you will be able to sniff out bs teachers with relative ease. You will also discover some of your own and expand the list. Two tips, start with the oldest videos first and whichever of these resonates with you, stick with till the wheels fall off.
How long will it take until things start making sense
Give yourself time to grow and learn. This is all new to you and you are allowed to make mistakes, to fail and discover yourself. Realistically, depending on the effort you put in, you will not start seeing results until after 6 months. Could take longeshorter so there is no guarantee.
Social media, Mentality, Psychology and Books
Online, forex trading might not have the best reputation online because it takes hard work and scammers and gurus give it a bad name. However, try to not get sucked into the Instagram trader lifestyle as it is nowhere close to what the reality is. You will not make millions tomorrow or the day after, you might never even make it in this market. But that is the reality of life. Nothing is promised, nothing is guaranteed.
Your mentality, beliefs and ego will be challenged in this market. You will learn things that will make you blood boil, you will ask yourself daily, how is this possible, why don’t they teach this in school..bla bla bla..it will be hard but growth is painful, if it wasn’t we’d all be billionaires. Take a break, take a walk, drink a glass of whatever you like or roll one..detox. Chill with your girl (or man) Gradually you will develop mental toughness that will set you up for life. Personally, I sorta ditched religion and picked up stoicism. Whatever works for you.
Psychology, this is unfortunately one of the most neglected aspects of your personal development in this journey. Do you believe in yourself? Can you stand by your convictions when everyone is against you? Can you get up every day uncertain of the future? There will be moments where you will question yourself, am I even doing the right thing? the right way? It is normal and essential for your growth. People who played competitive sports have a natural advantage here. Remember the game is first won in your head then on the pitch.
Books: ironically, books that helped me the most were the mindset books, Think and grow rich, trading for a living, 4 hour work week, the monk who sold his Ferrari..just google mindset and psychology books, most trading books are garbage. Watch and listen to people who have made it in the investing business. Ray Dalio, warren, Bill Ackman and Carl Icahn.
This is turning out to be lengthier than I anticipated so I’ll try to be brief for the remaining parts.
Brokers
You will need to open up an account with a broker. Get a broker who is regulated. Australian ones (IC Market and Pepperstone) are both legit, reliable and regulated. Do your research. I’d avoid local ones because I’ve heard stories of wide spreads and liquidity problems. International brokers have never failed me. There are plenty brokers, there is no one size fits all recommendation. If it ain’t broke..don’t fix it.
Money transfer.
All brokers accept wire transfers, you might need to call your bank to authorize that, avoid Equity bank. Stanchart and Stanbic are alright. Large withdrawals $10k+ you will have to call them prior. Get Skrill and Neteller if you don’t like banks like me, set up a Bitcoin wallet for faster withdrawals, (Payoneer and Paypal are accepted by some brokers, just check with them.)
How much money can I make..?
I hate this question because people have perceived ceilings of income in their minds, eg 1 million ksh is too much to make per month or 10,000ksh is too little. Instead, work backwards. What % return did I make this month/ on this trade. Safaricom made 19.5% last year, if you make 20% you have outperformed them. If you reach of consistency where you can make x% per month on whatever money you have, then there are no limits to how much you can make.
How much money do I need to start with..?
Zero. You have all the resources above, go forth. There are brokers who provide free bonuses and withdraw-able profits. However, to make a fulltime income you will need some serious cash. Generally, 50,000 kes. You can start lower or higher but if you need say 20k to live comfortably and that is a 10% return per month, then you can do the math on how big your account should be. Of course things like compound interest come into play but that is dependent on your skill level. I have seen people do spectacular things with very little funds.
Taxes..?
Talk to a lawyer or an accountant. I am neither.
Family? Friends?
Unfortunately, people will not understand why you spend hundreds of hours watching strangers on the internet so it is best to keep it from them. Eventually you will make it work and they will come to your corner talking about how they always knew you’d make it.
The journey will be lonely, make some trading buddies along the way. You’d be surprised at how easy it is when people are united by their circumstances (and stupidity) I have guys who are my bros from South Africa and Lebanon who I have never met but we came up together and are now homies. Join forums, ask questions and grow. That is the only way to learn. Ideally, a group of 5-10 friends committed to learning and growth is the best model. Pushing each other to grow and discovering together.
Forex is real and you can do amazing things with it. It is not a get rich quick scheme. If you want a quick guaranteed income, get a job.
And now it is 5am, fuck.
This is oversimplified and leaves out many many aspects.
Happy to answer any questions.

Sextortion/blackmail email received from my own email address

Hello everyone, my friend recently received an email that's supposedly from his own email address, saying that he has been hacked and he should pay a few thousand dollars to a bitcoin account. Can you guys help me and tell me whether this is just a scam and should just be ignored?
The transcript from the email:
Hello! Seperti yang anda perhatikan, saya menghantar e-mel dari akaun anda. Ini bermakna saya mempunyai akses penuh ke peranti anda. Saya telah menonton anda selama beberapa bulan sekarang. Faktanya ialah anda telah dijangkiti malware melalui laman dewasa yang anda lawati. Jika anda tidak biasa dengan ini, saya akan menerangkan. Virus Trojan memberikan saya akses dan kawalan penuh ke atas komputer atau peranti lain. Ini bermakna saya boleh melihat segala-galanya di skrin anda, menghidupkan kamera dan mikrofon, tetapi anda tidak tahu mengenainya. Saya juga mempunyai akses kepada semua kenalan anda dan semua surat-menyurat anda. Mengapa antivirus anda tidak mengesan perisian hasad? Jawab: malware saya menggunakan pemandu, saya mengemas kini tandatangan digital setiap 4 jam supaya antivirus anda tidak berfungsi. Saya membuat video yang menunjukkan bagaimana anda melancap di bahagian kiri skrin, dan di bahagian kanan anda melihat video yang anda tonton. Dengan satu klik tetikus, Saya boleh menghantar video ini ke semua e-mel dan kenalan anda di rangkaian sosial. Saya juga boleh menyiarkan akses kepada semua surat-menyurat e-mel dan messenger yang anda gunakan. Sekiranya anda ingin mengelakkan ini, pindahkan amaun $1250 (USD) ke alamat bitcoin saya (jika anda tidak tahu bagaimana untuk melakukan ini, tulis kepada Google: 'Buy Bitcoin'). Alamat bitcoin saya (BTC Wallet) ialah: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX Selepas menerima pembayaran, saya akan memadamkan video dan anda tidak akan pernah mendengar mengenai saya lagi. Saya memberikan anda 48 jam untuk membayar. Saya mempunyai skrip yang mengimbas surat ini, dan pemasa hanya akan berfungsi apabila anda membukanya. Mengemukakan aduan di suatu tempat tidak masuk akal kerana e-mel ini tidak boleh dikesan seperti alamat bitcoin saya. Saya tidak membuat apa-apa kesilapan. Jika saya mendapati bahawa anda telah berkongsi mesej ini dengan orang lain, video tersebut akan diedarkan dengan serta-merta. Selamat sejahtera!

Guide: Bitcoin Halving for Noobs - Should I Buy? When? What is it?

The halving is the process of slicing the bitcoin reward in half. Hence the name. Currently every 10 minutes there is a bitcoin "block" mined which rewards the miner with 12.5 bitcoin for mining.
After the halving the reward every 10 minutes will reduce to 6.25 (cutting it in half). This event happens roughly every 4 years. And itd awesome its going to be on election years!
The most obvious question people here are asking : "WiLL ThiS MaKe PrIce gO Up lIke MoON"
Dude. Who knows? Your guts only can answer this question. Sure, you can look at historical data to best analyze the future outcome but as we all know with honeybadger bitcoin - it don't care about its price and it will go up, down, sideways, and REVERSE!
past performance is not indicative of future events.
A lot of us here are thinking that the price will more than likely drop the day of the halving cause of the typical "buy the hype. Sell the news" action. There are so many people hyping up halving event like its going to immediately cause a supply or liquidity shock. It may do it instantly. It may take 6-18 months before we feels the effects of the halving.
Should you buy now or after the halving?
If you experience a bitcoin event. Price movement event, or halving event. Or conference event. And if you're asking this question. The answer will always be NO. WHY? because you clearly don't have a plan and people who enter the market without an entry plan and exit plan, that Is written on paper always get smoked. So do yourself a favor and light a joint, sit this one out. And watch it from the sidelines. This way you do the smoking and bitcoin doesn't.
I guess throw in like the most minimal amount of money imaginable like 10 dollars. And watch that if you MUST have skin in the game. Other than that I wouldn't recommend putting cash in without a plan. This is not financial advice.
Enjoy Tuesday bros!

The $80MM Bitcoin Pizza Story

So today I have an interesting story.
This one is pretty CRAZY, and could in affect get more crazy in the future as I'll explain at the end...
The story revolves around a dude by the name of Laszlo Hanyecz, a Florida-based programmer.
And it begins on May 18th 2010.

The setting? The BitcoinTalk forums.
These are OG forums for the early adopters of Bitcoin, and there are some legendary discussions from the early days like this one.
At the time, 1 Bitcoin was less than a cent, and Laszlo offered to pay 10,000 bitcoins (around $41 at the time) for a couple of pizzas.

Three days after his offer didn't have any suitors, Laszlo proclaimed:
"So nobody wants to buy me pizza? Is the bitcoin amount I'm offering too low?"
He goes on:
"I just think it would be interesting if I could say that I paid for a pizza in bitcoins"

Well, the next day, his wish was answered as a user by the name of jercos traded two pizzas for 10,000 bitcoins.
Here is proof of that transaction by the way. Very cool.
Also check out the value when transacted!
1 Bitcoin was less than a cent.
The real name of jercos?
Jeremy Sturdivant.
He was just 18 years old at the time of the transaction in 2010.
Now, 10,000 Bitcoin is the equivalent of $72MM today!
Or at the time of this interview, $80MM.
When asked if he regretted paying 10,000 Bitcoin for two pizzas, Laszlo emphasised the fact that he got to play a crucial role in the early adoption of Bitcoin and be part of history.
Of course, he also started the tradition of Bitcoin Pizza Day, held on the 22nd May annually to celebrate the first ever use of Bitcoin to buy pizza.

It gets worse though:
After that first pizza purchase in 2010, Laszlo continued to spend his Bitcoin - in fact he told Cooper Anderson that he had spent around 100,000 Bitcoin, much of it on pizza.
Today, that is the equivalent of around $720,000,000!
This story could get even crazier in the coming years.
The next Bitcoin Halving occurs in May 2020, check out the Bitcoin Halving video for more on that.

One of the unique aspects of Bitcoin as an asset is the fact that there is a finite total supply (21 MILLION BITCOIN) and pre-programmed supply SCHEDULE provided by these halving events.
Disclaimer: this is not investment advice and is for entertainment purposes only.
Let's have a look at how much those two pizzas (10,000 Bitcoin) could be worth at different (HYPOTHETICAL) prices for Bitcoin:
IF Bitcoin hit $10,000, THEN that would be $100MM
IF Bitcoin hit $100,000, THEN that would be $1B
IF Bitcoin hit $1,000,000, THEN that would be $10BN
Now of course these are hypothetical price points, but how amazing would it be if those two pizzas ended up being worth billions of dollars?

On the topic of Bitcoin and currencies name confusion (Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin SV, Bitcoin BTC, Ethereum ETH, Ethereum ETC..)

The topic of cryptocurrencies name confusion come back regularly.
It is often presented as a proof that Bitcoin Cash is trying to mislead newbie and steal the “Bitcoin” brand.
While I agree currencies sharing similar name can be confusing, the situation is not new and in reality extremely common.
It is the norm, not the exception.
It is actually relatively rare to have a currency with unique, non-shared name.
Any peoples with only a bit of knowledge should know this situation exist and be prepared for it when trading currencies whatever it is crypto or regular FIAT.
If anything crypto have shown so far a remarkable consistency. (Somewhat surprising as crypto are open source project while FIAT currencies are state enforced)
Here I collect some examples, the list is pretty exhaustive fell free to let me know if you have other examples I will add them to the list.
Dollars:
US Dollars USD
Australian Dollar AUD
New Zealand NZD
Barbadian dollars BBD
Bermudian dollars BMD
Brunian dollars BND
Bahamian dollars BSD

Pounds:

Egyptian pounds EGP
Falkland island pounds FKP

Rupee:
Indian rupees INR
Sri lankan rupees LKR
Mauritian rupees MUR
Nepalese rupees NPR
Pakistan rupees PKR
Seychellois rupees SCR
Indonesian rupiahs IPR
I recommend to link this post next time you encounter this argument again.
I think there is no need wasting energy debating such points.
It is a normal characteristics of currencies and while possibly annoying it has to be accepted (and is simply unavoidable).

After that first pizza purchase in 2010, Laszlo continued to spend his Bitcoin - in fact he told Cooper Anderson that he had spent around 100,000 Bitcoin, much of it on pizza.
Today, that is the equivalent of around $720,000,000!
This story could get even crazier in the coming years.
The next Bitcoin Halving occurs in May 2020, check out the Bitcoin Halving video for more on that.
One of the unique aspects of Bitcoin as an asset is the fact that there is a finite total supply (21 MILLION BITCOIN) and pre-programmed supply SCHEDULE provided by these halving events.

Let's have a look at how much those two pizzas (10,000 Bitcoin) could be worth at different (HYPOTHETICAL) prices for Bitcoin:
IF Bitcoin hit $10,000, THEN that would be $100MM
IF Bitcoin hit $100,000, THEN that would be $1B
IF Bitcoin hit $1,000,000, THEN that would be $10BN
Now of course these are hypothetical price points, but how amazing would it be if those two pizzas ended up being worth billions of dollars?

10 differences between Mpesa and Bitcoin

12-25 21:34 - 'Laszlo Hanyecz and The $80MM Bitcoin Pizza' (self.Bitcoin) by /u/financeoptimum removed from /r/Bitcoin within 205-215min

'''
So today I have an interesting story.
This one is pretty CRAZY, and could in affect get more crazy in the future as I'll explain at the end...
The story revolves around a dude by the name of Laszlo Hanyecz, a Florida-based programmer.
And it begins on May 18th 2010.

The setting? The BitcoinTalk forums.
These are OG forums for the early adopters of Bitcoin, and there are some legendary discussions from the early days like [this one]1 .
At the time, 1 Bitcoin was less than a cent, and Laszlo offered to pay 10,000 bitcoins (around $41 at the time) for a couple of pizzas.

Three days after his offer didn't have any suitors, Laszlo proclaimed:
"So nobody wants to buy me pizza? Is the bitcoin amount I'm offering too low?"
He goes on:
"I just think it would be interesting if I could say that I paid for a pizza in bitcoins"

Well, the next day, his wish was answered as a user by the name of [jercos]2 traded two pizzas for 10,000 bitcoins.
Here is [proof of that transaction]3 by the way. Very cool.
Also check out the value when transacted!
1 Bitcoin was less than a cent.

The real name of jercos?
Jeremy Sturdivant.
He was just 18 years old at the time of the transaction in 2010.
Now, 10,000 Bitcoin is the equivalent of $72MM today!
Or at the time of [this interview]4 , $80MM.
When asked if he regretted paying 10,000 Bitcoin for two pizzas, Laszlo emphasised the fact that he got to play a crucial role in the early adoption of Bitcoin and be part of history.
Of course, he also started the tradition of Bitcoin Pizza Day, held on the 22nd May annually to celebrate the first ever use of Bitcoin to buy pizza.

It gets worse though:
After that first pizza purchase in 2010, Laszlo continued to spend his Bitcoin - in fact he told Cooper Anderson that he had spent around 100,000 Bitcoin, much of it on pizza.
Today, that is the equivalent of around $720,000,000!

This story could get even crazier in the coming years.
The next Bitcoin Halving occurs in May 2020, check out the [Bitcoin Halving video]5 for more on that.
One of the unique aspects of Bitcoin as an asset is the fact that there is a finite total supply (21 MILLION BITCOIN) and pre-programmed supply SCHEDULE provided by these halving events.

Bitcoin as the Ultimate Haven from Hyperinflation: A Country By Country Analysis Of Worldwide Fiat Currency Inflation

Bitcoin as the Ultimate Haven from Hyperinflation: A Country By Country Analysis Of Worldwide Fiat Currency Inflation
https://cryptoiq.co/bitcoin-as-the-ultimate-haven-from-hyperinflation-a-country-by-country-analysis-of-worldwide-fiat-currency-inflation/
Bitcoin was created during the Great Recession that started in 2008, when the governments of the world printed trillions of dollars to bail out banks and corporations. Satoshi Nakamoto intended Bitcoin to be a decentralized form of money that could not be printed by governments at will. In the the Genesis Block Satoshi included the message “The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of the second bailout for banks.”
Fiat currencies continue to be the dominant form of global currency, but it seems logical that, if fiat currencies were to hyperinflate and collapse, Bitcoin would become the dominant global currency.
This is because Bitcoin can be sent instantly anywhere in the world and is cryptographically secure. It is easy enough to integrate Bitcoin into any e-commerce store or physical store, and the customers of the future will be able to send Bitcoin from their smartphones via QR codes. Therefore, if fiat currency becomes obsolete, Bitcoin could seamlessly take its place and keep the global economy running.
There has been plenty of hype that fiat currencies are collapsing, but this article will explore the current state of major fiat currencies in the world to ascertain the true situation. This is important information since the rate of fiat currency inflation by country is an important factor that will determine Bitcoin adoption rates and ultimately Bitcoin’s price.
United States’ Inflation Rate
The United States is perhaps the best place to start an analysis of global fiat inflation, since the USD is the world’s dominant fiat currency and perhaps the most stable long term. That being said, there is 2-3 percent annual inflation in the United States.
If we split the difference at a 2.5 percent annual inflation rate, it means $100,000 stored in a bank will lose a whopping $22,400 of value over the course of 10 years, corresponding to 22.4 percent inflation per 10 years. Therefore, even in the United States, saving money long term seems impractical, and this essentially forces people to risk their savings by investing in the hopes that the money earned from investing will outpace inflation.
It appears inflation will only worsen in the United States since the national debt is approaching $22 trillion, with a budget deficit of $1 trillion per year and growing. This situation will likely lead to increased money printing, which would increase the inflation rate. Therefore, saving money in USD long term does not make financial sense. Bitcoin is an alternative way to store money long term, although Bitcoin has yet to mature and can be extremely volatile from year to year.
Euro (EUR) Inflation Rate Is 37.5 percent Relative To USD During The Last 10 Years
One of the primary global currencies besides the USD is the Euro (EUR). For the rest of this global analysis, fiat currencies will be compared to the USD exchange rate to determine inflation, but it must be kept in mind that the USD itself is inflating at the rate of 2 to 3 percent per year.
When the EUR launched in 1999, the exchange rate was one USD per 0.85 EUR. By 2002 the EUR weakened to 1.16 EUR per USD. The EUR then entered a period of vigorous strengthening, and the exchange rate fell to 0.64 EUR per USD by 2008. The Great Recession caused the EUR to begin weakening versus the USD long term, and currently each USD is worth 0.88 EUR. This represents 37.5 percent inflation relative to the USD in roughly 10 years.
Back to the storing money in a bank analogy, $100,000 of EUR stored over the past 10 years would have lost the EUR inflation rate + the USD inflation rate. With this sort of inflation rate it seems dangerous to store money in EUR long term.
It gets worse. The EUR is one of the top global fiat currencies, and there are many currencies doing worse than the EUR.
United Kingdom’s Pound Has 65 Percent Inflation Relative to USD in 11 Years
The United Kingdom (UK) is one of nine European Union (EU) countries that does not use the EUR, and eventually, the UK will leave the EU via the Brexit. However, the native Great Britain Pound (GBP) has done far worse than the Euro, with the exchange rate going from 0.48 GBP per USD in 2007 to 0.79 GBP per USD currently. This is 65 percent inflation relative to the USD during the past 11 years.
Canada’s Inflation Rate Is 45.2 Percent Relative to USD During the Last 7 Years
The United States’ neighbor to the north is similar to the United States in many respects. It is a fully developed and industrialized first world country. However the native fiat currency, the Canadian Dollar (CAD), has been experiencing severe inflation since the Great Recession. In 2011 1 USD was worth 0.95 CAD, and now the exchange rate is 1.36 CAD per USD. This represents 43.2 percent inflation relative to the USD since 2011, and of course, the USD has an underlying inflation rate as well of 16.2 percent during the last 7 years.
Even in the first world country of Canada, it is becoming impossible to save cash for retirement or even for short-term goals like buying a house, forcing people to invest in the risky stock market.
Mexico’s Inflation Rate Is 97.6 Percent Relative to the USD During Past 10 Years
Since the 2008 financial crisis, the exchange rate of the Mexican Peso (MXN) has gone from 10.12 MXN per USD to 20 MXN per USD. This represents 97.6 percent inflation relative to the USD, and USD inflation means the true Mexican inflation rate is well over 100 percent per 10 years. This sort of inflation rate ensures that people have to work their entire lives and can never retire, and overall, this sort of inflation can cause the entire economy of Mexico to struggle. Bitcoin seems like an obvious alternative to holding MXN long term.
It is quite shocking that a country bordering the United States has such high inflation, yet the mainstream media never mentions it.
Russia Has 194 Percent Inflation Relative to USD Since the 2008 Great Recession
Russia is a global superpower, with a gross domestic product (GDP) of $1.58 trillion versus the United States’ $19.39 trillion GDP. Despite being a superpower, the native currency of Russia, the Russian Ruble (RUB), has gone from 23.48 RUB per USD in 2008 to 69.08 RUB per USD currently. This yields a 194 percent 10 year inflation rate relative to the USD. Clearly, the Great Recession that started in 2008 is a common point when fiat inflation accelerated in many countries around the world.
Japan’s Inflation Rate Is 46 Percent Relative to USD Over the Past 7 Years
Japan is a first-world country and has one of the most important stock markets in the world. The GDP of Japan is ranked number three in the world at nearly $5 trillion. However, its inflation rate is far higher than the United States, at least since 2011. In 2011, the exchange rate was 76 JPY per USD, but it has now risen to 111 JPY per USD, a 46 percent inflation rate relative to the USD over the past 7 years. This is actually almost exactly the same as Canada’s inflation rate.
China’s Inflation Is Only 14.4 Percent Relative to USD Since 2013, but China Tightly Controls the CNY
China is the second ranking economy in the world with a $12 trillion GDP. Its position as the number one trading partner of the United States gives it power to manipulate the exchange rate of its native currency the Chinese Yuan (CNY). The CNY actually strengthened greatly versus the USD until 2013, when China relaxed its control over the CNY exchange rate to make it more competitive in the global import and export markets. Chinese control over the CNY and therefore, control over the profitability of Chinese imports, is a primary reason for the “trade war” between China and the United States.
Since allowing the CNY to lose value relative to the USD, the exchange rate has gone from 6.04 CNY per USD in 2013 to 6.91 CNY per USD currently, a 14.4 percent inflation relative to the USD in 5 years. China is an outlier and has one of the lowest inflation rates relative to the USD.
Switzerland Has One Of The Lowest Inflation Rates At Less Than 5 percent Relative To The USD In 7 Years
Switzerland has remained independent of the European Union and does not use the EUR. Instead, it uses the Swiss Franc (CHF). The CHF actually strengthened greatly relative to the USD during the Great Recession, but the trend reversed in 2011. There was a rapid devaluation of the CHF relative to the USD from 0.76 CHF per USD to 0.94 CHF per USD during 2011. In The 7 years since then, the CHF has roughly five percent inflation relative to the USD and sits at 0.99 CHF per USD currently.
That being said, it cannot be forgotten that the USD itself is experiencing 2.5 percent inflation per year, so even countries that have low inflation rates relative to the USD have a significant inflation rate overall.
India Has Seen 79 Percent Inflation Relative to USD Since the Great Recession Began
India has the sixth highest GDP in the world at $2.6 trillion, and the second highest population at 1.34 billion. Since the Great Recession began, the Indian Rupee (INR) has gone from 39.18 per USD to 70.14 INR per USD, a 79 percent inflation relative to the USD in 11 years. Unfortunately, India is slowly making Bitcoin more illegal and could fully outlaw it, so citizens may have to break the law in the future in the event that inflation accelerates and Bitcoin becomes a preferred way to store money.
Indonesia Has 76 Percent Inflation Relative to the USD in Seven Years
Indonesia has a population of 265 million, not far behind the United States, but its GDP is 20 times less than the United States at $1 trillion. Part of the reason Indonesia’s economy is weaker may be that the native fiat currency, the Indonesian Rupiah (IDR) has gone from 8,250 per USD in 2011 to 14,550 IDR per USD currently. This is 76 percent inflation relative to the USD in 7 years, around the same rate as India. However, Indonesia has banned Bitcoin as of 2018, which would make it difficult for citizens to use Bitcoin in the event inflation spirals out of control.
Brazil Has 152 percent Inflation Relative To USD In Past Seven Years, Despite Being the Strongest Economy In South America
Brazil has the most powerful economy in South America with a $2 trillion GDP. However, South America as a whole is experiencing out of control hyperinflation, and Brazil seems to be feeling the effects. The Brazilian Real (BRL) has gone from 1.55 per USD in 2011 to 3.91 BRL per USD currently. This is 152 percent inflation relative to the USD in 7 years. There does not appear to be any inflation safe haven in South America, and this could make South America a Bitcoin adoption hotspot.
Venezuela Has Ridiculous Inflation Around One million percent Per Year; Bolivar Collapsing
The end game of fiat currency inflation, if left unchecked, is currency collapse. A classic example of currency collapse is the situation in Venezuela, where the Cafe Con Leche Index suggests 400,000 percent inflation per year, although if a shorter term average is used it is 1 million percent per year or more. It would be shocking if the native fiat currency of Venezuela, the Sovereign Bolivar (VES), is still usable one year from now. Bitcoin is legal in Venezuela, and there is plenty of news which indicates people are abandoning the VES for Bitcoin.
South Korea Has Zero Inflation Relative to the USD
South Korea is considered a powerful economy relative to most of the world, with a GDP of $1.5 trillion despite the country’s small size. The South Korean Won (SKW) has essentially zero inflation relative to the USD long term aside from an exchange rate shock during the 2008 Great Recession. That being said, inflation is still a reality in South Korea since the USD has average inflation of 2.5 percent per year.
Australia Has 53 Percent Inflation Relative to the USD in Seven Years
Australia essentially has a continent to itself, but it is not isolated from the global fiat inflation crisis. The AUD actually strengthened massively versus the USD from 2001 to 2011. However, the trend reversed, and the exchange rate has gone from 0.93 AUD per USD in 2011 to 1.42 AUD per USD currently. This is 53 percent inflation relative to the USD in seven years.
Israel Has Zero Inflation Relative To USD Long Term
Israel is in the Middle East but does not have strong connections to the economy of the rest of the Middle East and, apparently, a different monetary policy than most of the rest of the world. Israel is only comparable to the United States, South Korea, and perhaps Switzerland when it comes to fiat currency since the Israeli New Shekel (ILS) has practically zero inflation relative to the USD long term although there are shorter term oscillations. Like the other countries listed with zero USD relative inflation, inflation still exists because the USD itself is inflating.
In total, there are 180 fiat currencies in the world, and here, we’re covering just 16 of them. We could keep going, but the trend is already clear. Even in major countries with powerful economies, inflation has become a serious issue, with some major countries experiencing 50-200 percent inflation relative to the USD over the past decade, and those numbers don’t even take in the 2.5 percent per year USD inflation underlying them.
It is possible that worldwide fiat inflation will accelerate due to the growing global debt crisis. That’s especially true if an economic recession occurs since that would force a rapid increase in money printing.
So we’re in a global situation that needs to be actively monitored. Even if the status quo is maintained long term, most of the world’s population cannot realistically save money for the future because it’s going to lose value over time. This is a major shift from our parents’ generation when saving money was the smart thing to do.
The good news is Bitcoin is waiting on the sidelines. It’s ready to become the global currency if fiat currency collapses worldwide. Even if fiat does not totally collapse, perhaps once Bitcoin matures and becomes more stable, it will be a good option for saving money long term since its value is independent of fiat inflation.

12-04 11:13 - 'Have a Look at the Most Valuable Companies in Crypto Space' (self.Bitcoin) by /u/MonteCarloDEX removed from /r/Bitcoin within 465-475min

'''
Many things have been said about the champions who have been at the forefront of making things happen in the crypto space but not much has been known about them. The list below and the descriptions indicate the biggest companies in the industry not only by valuation and capitalization but also by goodwill and corporate presence both online and offline as well. They shall be listed in no particular order of preference.

Ripple (Valuation of about $5 Billion)

Many people have heard one way or the other about [Ripple Labs Inc]1 . It is widely associated with the now popular [XRP]2 token as it uses this coin in its solutions. Ripple Labs owns and runs RipppleNet. Driven by what is referred to as the Ripple Protocol Consensus Algorithm (RPCA), RippleNet is used for all kinds of transactions between financial institutions but with the introduction of new tools different kinds of platforms will be able to run off it making Ripple be not only the darling of the financial services sector but also to be one of the cryptocurrency companies to watch out for come next year. Ripple has been [tipped]3 to be worth about $5 billion.

Circle (about $3 Billion)

While [Circle]4 is quite popular these days with its hands in many pies in the crypto space, this cryptocurrency unicorn started out as a service where you could buy [Bitcoin]5 with credit card and has grown to be one of the most dynamic organizations out there also with its own stablecoin USDcoin which is tied to the United States Dollar. Sources indicate that Circle achieved its $3 billion valuation after a funding round of about $100 million last year.

Bitmain (about $12 Billion)

Now everyone knows that [Bitmain]6 is by far the largest cryptocurrency corporate organization by sheer size and valuation. Owning the world’s largest cryptocurrency mining facilities and being a major hardware manufacturer of cryptocurrency mining equipment, Bitmain has overtaken just about everyone else to be at the top when it comes to valuations. This does not mean however that it hasn’t had its share of corporate issues. Sources [estimated]7 last year that the total valuation of Bitmain stood at $12 billion.

Binance (about $2 Billion)

[Binance]8 is quite popular in the crypto space as it is one of the most popular cryptocurrency exchanges at the moment. Its premier position in terms of trading volume (as the second largest) has only made it more obvious that it holds the top spot in the hearts and minds of many within the industry. Apart from trading cryptocurrencies, Binance is also known for other products such as [Binance Coin]9 and its decentralized trading blockchain Binance Chain. CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao has [indicated]10 that Binance is worth at least $ 2 billion or more.

Canaan Creative (about $2 Billion)

While maybe not many new people know about this particular cryptocurrency mining company, Canaan Creative is also one of the leaders when it comes to cryptocurrency mining. Even though the company itself hasn’t been dong well as of late, it is still punching above its weight when it comes to having superstar status. Reports have it that the recent [IPO]11 places it at a little over $ 2 billion.

Coinbase (about $8 Billion)

We all know [Coinbase]12 and its cryptocurrency exchange platform were one way or the other going to be on the list. With other products such as the recently introduced Coinbase Prime, Coinbase Custody and even Coinbase Commerce, Coinbase is indeed on a curve to grow exponentially. So much so that the cryptocurrency exchange put its [valuation]13 at $8 billion last year after finishing its series E round of financing.

BitMEX (around $3 Billion)

With an innovative cryptocurrency trading platform that offers more than the usual trading of cryptocurrencies ( futures and perpetual contracts as well), [BitMEX]14 enables traders to use the necessary leverage to enhance the potential for profit as well. Reports [indicate]15 that BitMEX is worth $3.6 billion from last year although other reports contradict this and put the valuation at around $1 billion.

Robinhood (about $7 Billion)

[Robinhood]16 has created a more centrist appeal than many other cryptocurrency trading platforms. This has led to its massive success as its main focus are the millennials. Robinhood took off in the beginning as a fee-free stock trading platform. Its valuation at around $7 billion was [reported]17 earlier this year and this, of course, makes it be a force to be reckoned within the industry.

Block.One (around $3 Billion)

[Block.One]18 has been one of those organizations that have scaled through all the odds when it comes to corporate-startup challenges. Being a contender for the throne of king of Decentralized Applications, Block.One it has been [reported]19 has a valuation of about $3 billion with a significant majority of its holdings in fiat assets surprisingly for a company that rules its share of the crypto space.

Kraken (about $4 Billion)

[Kraken]20 is one of the premier cryptocurrency exchanges. This goes without saying that the recent [acquisition]21 of a futures trading platform and the closing of its last [funding round]22 to the tune of $13 million had quite a bit to do with its recent $ 4 billion valuation. It has, of course, raised the bar for the cryptocurrency trading platform whose future had reportedly been in the doldrums prior to the acquisition and new funding round.

Is It All about Money?

While the performance of the companies is as important as the reason that they were set up or are operational in the first place, the basic reason for the consideration of the most valued companies in terms of valuation is to gauge the health of the corporate actors currently on the big stage within the crypto space.
This also indicates the direction that the sphere is going in; the direction of greater adoption and inclusion in normal day-to-day events. One thing is certain from the above: a new industry has been born and those who can catch the “crypto-fire” may one day be also among these above-listed companies as many others are in fierce pursuit of being unicorns themselves.

08-27 14:53 - 'New blockchain based game' (self.Bitcoin) by /u/FarqueCrypto69 removed from /r/Bitcoin within 0-8min

'''
Gods Unchained was recently released and I've just caught on to it yesterday, I'm confused at the lack of player base for such a good game. The game is similar to hearthstone but it has its unique way about it with a whole lot better integrity, all the cards in the game can be traded for Crypto-currency, to anyone who understands it each card is its own token to people who don't understand each card is owned by only 1 person who can trade, sell or keep it forever. One card sold for over $60,000 USD pre-release of the game, another card got opened from a pack and was worth very similar to $60,000 USD, but don't get me wrong most cards are only worth a mere dollar or two, but that doesn't change the fact about the potential for them to be worth more. The game isn't a whole money making pit but each game you win, you make around 30 cents USD from the raffle tokens which are rewarded which are trading on a market at around $1500 USD daily volume. There is also a tournament coming up within the next 4-5 months for a total of $500,000USD+ with a really high chance of winning due to the lack of player base currently, but it's kind of a awareness raising and rewarding early players and investors. The game is currently in locked beta without having a referral link so I guess I'll post mine to get you started if you're interested. I hope to see you all playing Gods Unchained soon :)
Gods Unchained is a new competitive trading card game backed by Coinbase and led by the former Director of Magic the Gathering: Arena. The cards are real world tradable in an open economy, remember their stats and history, and you'll be able to play for keeps and earn valuable cards. Gods Unchained is free to play and currently in beta. You need to be invited to get in, but if you're interested in trying it you're welcome to use my beta key! [[link]2

Why use bitcoins when my dollars are working just fine for me?

This would be the topic of our next video from our educational series. We want to give the people plenty of good reasons why bitcoin is better and in which scenarios. Naturally we want to crowd source the ideas as we will never be able to figure out all the angles that a community could.

"The Big Picture" - Dollar Vigilante November Newsletter

It has been an interesting week for me.
First, I was invited to speak at World Crypto CON in Las Vegas and then shortly before the event they told me I couldn’t speak. At the same time they told most of my other anarchist friends they also couldn’t speak and/or they were banned from the event, including Ben Swann, Luke Rudkowski and Josh Sigurdson of World Alternative Media.
I was already in Texas for the Texas Bitcoin Conference and I mostly just wanted to play in their crypto poker tournament anyway so I went to Vegas.
All manner of strange people seemed to be coming up to me, including one woman speaking in tongues. And, a weird energy surrounded the event... so much so that my body was shaking the entire time.
Then they also didn’t allow me to play in the poker event! I paid one guy some BTC to buy his chips and they threatened to call the police on me! I know what happens next when that happens so I left the premises.
Later that night, Josh Sigurdson was poisoned and barely survived. Other anarchists I knew who were there were being accosted, having their phones stolen and other aggressions.
I should mention this all occurred on Halloween. Day of the dead. Whatever happened, karma struck instantly and no one showed up! I then got a message from my wife that she wanted me to come home immediately and I was happy to do so.
She told me that God told her that we had to tell everyone to repent immediately before it was too late and she went into two days of screaming, crying and became delirious after three days without eating or sleeping.
Eventually we had to get her to the hospital to get her calmed down. I’ve spent the last two days with her there and we just returned home as they gave her a number of things to relax her.
Is something strange going on? It sure feels like it. In any case, as I stated in the last newsletter, no matter what happens I am just going to continue on with my work (although spending more time with my family is also a priority) helping people to wake up... that’s all I can do.
Current Events
As I write it is the midterm selections in the USSA. Yet another, “most important election in our lifetime.” All fear propaganda to try to make believe that voting will fix this evil system of slavery. It won’t. But, when they say this is the "election of our lifetimes" they are right on one thing. Politics, central banks and government are very close to destroying the entire world.
Elect to walk away from it all now before it is too late. I know I don’t have to tell TDVers that but it is worth reiterating.
And, the results are in. Anarchy won like it has every single selection.
And the wars continue killing or destroying the lives of millions of innocents, Americans continue to get extorted for trillions of dollars per year, millions of innocents remain in cages in rape camps and the Federal Reserve continues to impoverish and steal from everyone.
Meanwhile, in things that actually matter, the battle over bitcoin has hastened dramatically. But, you wouldn’t know it from the price action.
The complete lack of volatility has only gotten worse (or better if you are in the “volatility is bad for bitcoin” camp).
Here is a chart of bitcoin on October 27th.
For a 24 hour period it traded within a $15 band! It’s like the whole world is just waiting to see what happens next.
And, what will happen next? I am still expecting a panic sell-off along with all worldwide markets followed by a price explosion.
We did make it through October without that happening, but I have pointed out November is also a prime month for it to occur. If nothing major occurs in November then I may have to reassess.
The US stock markets continue to hang in there but really only propped up by a minority of stocks as this tweet from early October points out.
Bank stocks, which are probably one of the most important to watch are off 17% from January of this year.
Meanwhile, crypto exchange Binance made more profit than Deutsche Bank in the second quarter of this year!
As I said last issue, things really couldn’t be going better for the cryptospace, right as it appears that bank stocks and the market as a whole is on the verge of collapse.
On October 26th, the CEO of Visa, Al Kelly, said that he “certainly” does not view cryptocurrencies as a threat to his business right now, but added that “if we have to go there, we’ll go there.”
You’ll have to go there Kelly... better start working on your resume. Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC is about to release its first blockchain-powered handset in cryptocurrencies, making it the first big name in the industry to accept only digital currencies as payment.
Exodus 1, the first version of HTC’s blockchain phone, is priced at 0.15 BTC or 4.78 ETH, which in current trading equates to about US$960.
HTC first announced the Exodus phone in May, which features a built-in digital wallet that will enable users to store and trade cryptocurrencies.
But, the game changing news is that ICE, the owner of the New York Stock Exchange, has announced they will launch their new digital asset platform, Baakt, on December 12th. This will enable traditional institutional investors to easily invest into the bitcoin market.
The total bitcoin market right now is about a $110 billion market cap.
Total value of financial asset worldwide is estimated to be over $300 trillion. Which means bitcoin is only 0.03% of total financial assets held in the world.
If, say, only 1% of that $300 trillion were to go into bitcoin, that would mean $3 trillion would be trying to enter a market worth $100 billion.
In other words, if you don’t own bitcoin and other cryptos by December 12th... don’t do that. And, don’t forget precious metals either.
FinIst analyst Denis Lisitsyn recently said on RT, “The aggressive US policy in recent years has forced some countries to look for an alternative to the dollar and replenish their gold reserves. Worries about the future growth of global economy are an additional incentive for purchases. Many question Donald Trump’s protectionism.”
Sounds like he has been listening to TDV’s Ed Bugos!
In the same article, Vladimir Rojankovsky, LIFA, expert at the International Financial Center said that Hungary, Poland, Russia, China, India, Turkey and Saudi Arabia are all hoarding gold.
This, after Russian ownership of US Treasury bonds dropped from $96.1 billion in March to an 11-year low of $14.9 billion in May.
The writing is on the wall. And almost the entire public has no idea what is happening.
Luckily you do, so stick with us here as we give you are best guidance on how to survive and prosper during and after the dollar collapse.
And get right with your family and God. I’ve had a few moments in the last week where I thought it might be all over and each time I felt despondent knowing I still haven’t done enough. Don’t wait too long.
Coming Events
Due to my wife being in the hospital recently I cancelled going to Steemfest in Poland. I was also going to go to Iran and Iraq on that trip. But, I’ve decided family has to come before work in this respect.
Which means, really, my next major events are close to home with the TDV Summit on February 12-13th and Anarchapulco/Cryptopulco from February 14-17th.
I couldn’t help notice that World Crypto Con, which seemed to be out to kill all of us anarchists, was on October 31st and Anarchapulco starts on Valentine’s Day. Because it is really all about love.
If you haven’t checked out the TDV Summit page lately, check it out. We’ve added a number of great speakers and I still have a few surprises to announce. It is two full days this year and I am able to focus on it fully for the first time as we have a professional management team running Anarchapulco now. And, included in the price is a gala dinner to be held on the evening of February 12th.
And, Anarchapulco just released its main stage speaker list (there will be 5 stages this year). It’s quite the list! Jeffrey Tucker - Anarchapulco Master of Ceremonies

There are even more announcements soon, including Larken Rose and many more. And, we haven’t announced the Cryptopulco speaker list yet. It should come out in the next week. You won’t want to miss it.
Anarchapulco will likely sell out by January. And all 1,000 rooms in the Princess Hotel are already close to sold out, so if you want to stay on premises, make sure to book your room now. If you miss it, don’t worry, we’ll likely be filling up a hotel nearby down the beach too!
And, don’t worry about what might happen in the future. Live in the present. Own some precious metals and cryptocurrency. Work on yourself, physically, mentally and spiritually. And spend more time with your loved ones.
Everything else will work itself out.
Now, I’m going to go watch Lord of the Rings with my wife and kids. “Hey kids, did you know that ring of power is an allegory for central banks and government?”

Stable Coin là gì? Tại sao cần Stable Coin bình ổn giá?

Stable Coin là gì? Tại sao cần Stable Coin bình ổn giá?
Sự lên xuống giá trị của các đồng tiền ảo, thường là cơ hội tuyệt vời cho các nhà đầu tư, đầu cơ. Tuy nhiên, đây hoàn toàn không phải là điều mong muốn đối với các khoản thanh toán hàng ngày. Do đó, người ta cần một đồng tiền ảo mang đầy đủ các tính chất của Bitcoin, Ethereum và altcoin khác, nhưng lại có giá trị ổn định. Đây chính là lý do ra đời của stable coin – đồng tiền Cryptocurrency được neo vào 1 giá trị tài sản ổn định.
Vậy, Stable Coin là gì? Tại sao chúng cần stable coin bình ổn giá? Hãy cùng tìm hiểu câu trả lời cho vấn đề này, ngay trong bài viết sau đây nhé.
Xem thêm:

Stable Coin là gì?

Stable Coin là gì? Stable Coin là tên gọi của một đồng tiền ảo (Cryptocurrency) mới, với đặc tính nổi bật là bình ổn giá. Stable Coin được neo vào một tài sản có giá trị ổn định khác như vàng, đô la….
Cũng như các đồng tiền ảo khác, stable coin có tính toàn cầu, phân tán và không phụ thuộc vào ngân hàng trung ương nào. Nhưng tính năng nổi bật nhất của đồng tiền này, khiến cho nó được cộng đồng đón nhận nồng nhiệt vẫn là khả năng bình ổn giá.

Stable Coin là gì?

Những điểm nổi bật của Stable Coin bình ổn giá

  • Giá cả ổn định
  • Có khả năng mở rộng
  • Tính bảo mật cao
  • Phi tập trung
Cộng đồng Cryptocurrency tin rằng, với các thông số cố định, minh bạch, stable coin sẽ giải quyết được hàng loạt các vấn đề của thị trường tiền ảo. Và đây sẽ là tiền đề giúp tiền ảo có thể trở thành 1 loại tiền tệ chính thống trong thời gian không xa.
Minh chứng cho nhận định này, là sự ra đời của hàng loạt đồng stable coin như: USDT (Tether), USDC (USD Coin), PAX (Paxos Standard Token), DAI (DAI), TUSD (True USD), HUSD, GUSD (Gemini Dollars)… Đương nhiên, những con số này sẽ không bao giờ dừng lại.

Tại sao cần Stable Coin – coin bình ổn giá?

Sự biến động về giá của các đồng coin, khiến các nhà đầu tư, đầu cơ tiền ảo hứng thú. Chính sự biến động này, sẽ là một cơ hội màu mỡ, giúp người ta có thể đầu tư, đầu cơ kiếm lợi nhuận.
Tuy nhiên, sự biến động này hoàn toàn không phù hợp với các khoản thanh toán hàng ngày. Ví dụ cụ thể: “nếu phát lương nhân viên bằng cryto vào hôm trước, nhưng hôm sau giá crypto lại giảm xuống 20%, thì thử hỏi nhân viên nào có thể chấp nhận. Hoặc nếu giá crypto tăng lên, thì thật sự là tiếc nuối cho doanh nghiệp”.
Chính vì thế, nếu muốn các đồng crypto có thể trở thành một loại tiền tệ có giá trị, được sử dụng rộng rãi như các loại tiền tệ khác, thì nhất định cần có một sự bình ổn giá. Đây chính là lý do vì sao chúng ta cần đến Stable Coin – coin bình ổn giá.

Dịch vụ lập trình stable coin bình ổn giá tại Việt Nam

Đáp ứng với nhu cầu của thị trường tiền ảo, từ nhiều năm nay, tại Việt Nam cũng đã có các dịch vụ lập trình và phát triển tiền ảo ra đời. Tuy nhiên, số công ty có đầy đủ năng lực để hoàn thiện các dự án tiền ảo, tiền ảo stable coin thì không nhiều.
Trong số ít những công ty đó, thì công ty TNHH giải pháp phần mềm Devteam vẫn là nổi bật hơn cả. Dịch vụ lập trình stable coin bình ổn giá cũng là 1 trong những dịch vụ hàng đầu tại Devteam.
