Crypto-to-Crypto Trading Now Live on Coinbase

Crypto-to-crypto trading is now live on Coinbase. The largest and most popular crypto exchange in the United States made the announcement on Twitter, writing:
“Starting today, you can convert one crypto to another on Coinbase. Conversions are available between bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Litecoin (LTC), 0x (ZRX), or bitcoin cash (BCH). It’s day 8 of 12 Days of Coinbase.”
How Are Crypto Enthusiasts Reacting?
“12 Days of Coinbase” is a special program coinciding with this year’s holiday season. Through Friday December 21, 2018, the company will make daily announcements at noon, pacific standard time regarding new features, support for new cryptocurrencies and more. The company’s website advises enthusiasts to “check back daily” for the latest updates.
Coinbase followed up the announcement on Twitter by writing:
“Conversions complete instantly and at a lower cost than if done via two separate transactions. We’ll be gradually rolling out the ability to convert cryptocurrencies to customers in all 34 countries in which Coinbase offers native payment access.”
Strangely, not everyone is excited by the news. One user – going by the name Alex Cobb – implies that the company’s new crypto-to-crypto trading feature is no big deal, and responds by saying:
“Yes, Coinbase. That’s what every exchange is doing.”
Another user – under the name xrp_user – replies with the snarky message:
“They act like they’re giving customers some groundbreaking features.”
In addition, many appear split when regarding whether the company should list Ripple’s XRP cryptocurrency, with some saying “yes” and others standing firm against the idea.
No doubt, 2018 has been a big year for Coinbase. The company recently made headlines when as part of its 12 Days of Coinbase promotion, it stated it would be donating $1 worth of crypto each day to needy Venezuelan families who were in want of basic needs ranging from food to soap.
Big Steps for Coinbase
Furthermore, the exchange has also added several new assets to its professional trading platform Coinbase Pro ranging from Basic Attention Token (BAT) to Zcash (ZEC). Coinbase has alleged that it wants to list as many coins as possible in the coming years, eventually beating out its competition and becoming the go-to arena for long-term traders.
Coinbase has said that it is inspired by its customers’ growing wishes for more coins and wants to satisfy their needs better than any other exchange. The company recently listed a new OTC trading desk during the first week of December.
Will Coinbase continue to shell out new features for customers? Post your comments below.

CNBC’s Brian Kelly Is Reportedly Short on Bitcoin

Brian Kelly – often described as CNBC’s “uber” bitcoin bull – is allegedly short bitcoin.
The news came forth in a new podcast published on Zerohedge.com. The bitcoin market has been seriously crashing over the past few days. Late last week, the currency struck the $3,100 range for the first time in over 15 months, though at press time, the price has risen back up to roughly $3,400. The currency does appear to be showing signs of recovering, though it’s hard to say how long it will last or where it will wind up at the end of 2018.
Bitcoin in Crisis?
The podcast – entitled “Quoth the Raven,” taken from Edgar Allan Poe’s most famous poem – says that Brian Kelly is short bitcoin, and potentially has been for some time. Kelly has served as a cryptocurrency analyst with CNBC for several years. On a recent program, Kelly allegedly claimed that he was “net short,” something he has yet to state in the past.
Only a few months ago, Kelly purportedly stated that he’s so confident in BTC and its crypto-cousins that he’s placed approximately 90 percent of his wealth into digital assets. The podcast was particularly critical of Kelly’s casual attitude when announcing that he was short. The podcast speaker jokes that the asset has not entered a “bear market,” but is stuck in an “as*hole market,” and that the bear has come down crashing at 15,000 miles per hour. At the time of writing, bitcoin has fallen by over 80 percent since it reached its all-time high of nearly $20,000 last December.
In addition, the podcast claims that Kelly repeatedly pumped BTC to potentially get listeners interested and investing in the currency to boost its price.
The father of crypto has been falling steadily since the beginning of the year. Last summer, the asset spent most of the time hovering in the $6,000 range. In June, it temporarily fell below the $6,000 mark and entered $5,000 territory, causing widespread panic.
Kelly, however, remained adamant that bitcoin was not ready to die, alleging that a series of recent hacks and selloffs were responsible for the sudden drop.
Bitcoin Is Still Alive
On CNBC, he commented:
“This is not the funeral for bitcoin, whatsoever. Let’s put this in perspective. Do you know where we were a year ago? $2,500. Bear markets, we don’t know where they end. It doesn’t mean that bitcoin can’t go lower, but this is by no means the funeral for bitcoin.”

Circle CEO Remains Bullish on Bitcoin Predicting All-Round Tokenization

Circle CEO Remains Bullish on Bitcoin Predicting All-Round Tokenization
Jeremy Allaire, the co-founder and CEO of the fintech startup Circle, is being very optimistic about the future of bitcoin, even despite the recent downturn in the cryptocurrency’s value.
In an interview to CNBC, the entrepreneur said he believes bitcoin will skyrocket in the next three years, eventually driving all cryptocurrency valuations. While Allaire was reluctant to make specific predictions, he said the price of bitcoin will be much higher than it is now.
“I don’t make significant price predictions,” he told Squawk Box host Andrew Ross Sorkin.  “But it’s certainly going to be worth a great deal more than it’s worth today.”
According to Allaire, the fact that the digital currency is used by so many people worldwide explains his positive predictions and is one of the reasons to think that Bitcoin and Ethereum are oversold. Moreover, the fundamentals of digital currencies have not changed, what will continue to attract investors.
As Allaire noted, bitcoin will play a “very significant role” as a store of value, despite its current price changes. Bitcoin, he said, is unique when it comes to scalability and safety measures.
“The key thing with bitcoin is [that] it’s unique in its security and scale. And as an idea that we need a scarce [and] non-sovereign store of value that individuals can hold, and hold in a protected fashion, [Bitcoin] is attractive all around the world.”
The Future of the Crypto Market
Allaire stated that the success of one digital currency doesn’t mean the death of the other tokens. He doesn’t think the cryptocurrency market will end up being a winner. Instead, Allaire believes there will be millions of crypto assets on the market, like securities, utility tokens, and commodities.
“I do not think it’s going to be a winner-take-all [scenario],” Allaire explained. “We have a phrase: the Tokenization of Everything. We think cryptographic tokens are going to represent every form of financial asset in the world. There will be millions of them in years.”
Bitcoin Price Predictions
Earlier this week, the co-founder of Fundstrat Global Advisor, Tom Lee, claimed that bitcoin is now underestimated and it should be worth more than $13,000. Besides, he thinks the cryptocurrency could achieve $150,000 per coin if the number of wallet addresses reached 315 million.
Earlier this year, he already predicted that bitcoin would reach $25,000 this year, but then lowered his forecast, saying the cryptocurrency would be worth $22,000.
A former partner at Goldman Sachs, Mike Novogratz, shares positive opinions as well. The billionaire, who is an active bitcoin supporter, said he is confident the cryptocurrency will make a comeback, despite a fall of over 80% from its all-time high.
Another billionaire and VC investor Jim Breyer claims the technology is too big to be dismissed, noting that the current bearish trend on the crypto market will soon come to an end. Similarly, investor Tim Draper predicts the price of bitcoin will continue growing in the years to come.

New Financial Projects Gain Momentum in Period of Political Uncertainty

New Financial Projects Gain Momentum in Period of Political Uncertainty
On Thursday, December 13, the GoodDollar experiment – an ecosystem that explores how decentralised cryptocurrency and blockchain technology may enable models based on universal basic income (UBI) – received widespread praise at The Next Web’s Hard Fork Decentralized conference.
Getting technical: Dr Omri Ross explains how GoodDollar might work, at Hard Fork Decentralized.
Following GoodDollar’s official launch, by eToro CEO Yoni Assia at November’s Web Summit 2018 in Lisbon, the project has quickly gathered impetus, attracting support from all over the globe.

At a time when many leading economists fear a global financial crisis is looming, both Picketty’s bold blueprint for a fairer Europe – which includes significant levies on multinationals, millionaires and carbon emissions to amass funds to improve poverty, climate change and other challenges – and GoodDollar are innovative alternatives to traditional financial systems.
GoodDollar’s worldwide interest has accelerated since its introduction, at an event in Berlin in mid-November, of an OpenUBI community, formed to encourage collaboration and discussion around UBI and its technological implementation.
At the Hard Fork Decentralized summit, held at Mindspace, in trendy Shoreditch, in the northeast of the capital, and sponsored by eToro – the social trading platform that has invested $1 million in GoodDollar – the project gained more plaudits.
Ira Ryk-Lakhman, a lawyer with Tadmor – Levy & Co. who is completing a PhD at University College London, has joined GoodDollar because she believes “it is the future” – especially for the humanitarian causes that are close to her heart. She spoke with passion to around 100 attendees at Mindspace:
“According to UN data, upwards of 30 per cent of funds allocated to humanitarian aid is lost because of corruption. This is mind-blowing. Further, over 80 per cent of the funds that are allocated for charities do not make it to the final beneficiaries.”

“The solution is staring us in the face. We need to find something that is not susceptible to corruption or bureaucracy. Technology that does not go through the state but reaches the citizens directly. We already know what the future is: blockchain-based solutions, like GoodDollar, are the way forward. This is because blockchain technology is a public record, it is transparent, and it is immutable. As such, it is not susceptible to corruption and bureaucracy.”

Ryk-Lakhman said that as GoodDollar, a not-for-profit organisation, is focused on improving wealth inequality it is likely to generate great levels of interest and adoption, crucially. She continued:
“Hype alone does not suffice to sustain cryptocurrency or blockchain. You have got to have an application: a practical way that we can utilise this technology in real life. What other way is better to get your coin recognised by the wider public than if you show the positive sides of blockchain, and highlight that it is not necessarily affiliated with speculation but rather with innovation, sustainability and charity? Using this technology for social impact will drive adoption, which is key to this industry. Blockchain technology allows us to tackle humanitarian crises and to achieve social impact. In 2019 I believe we will see much more application of blockchain technology to that end.”
Talking heads: Dr Omri Ross, alongside Yoni Assia and Ira Ryk-Lakhman, discusses the technical aspects of GoodDollar.
Later, Yoni Assia – who has been thinking and writing about UBI for over a decade – took part in a panel discussion alongside Ryk-Lakhman, and Dr Omri Ross, an assistant professor in the Computer Science at the University of Copenhagen. The latter co-wrote the GoodDollar position paper, published in conjunction with the Web Summit launch, with Assia, and is positive about its chances of success.
Dr Omri Ross told the audience at Mindspace:
“I’ve been an academic of blockchain for several years, and when Yoni explained GoodDollar to me I could see it was a good idea. I have been around a few UBI projects and this one is quite advanced [in terms of technical research]. This is a call to the community to help.”
Good turn out: Around 100 people attended the GoodDollar event at Hard Fork Decentralized.
Assia revealed that already “around 30 different partners” have joined the OpenUBI community.  He said:
“We were super-excited to see that we are not the only ones thinking about this. There are super-intelligent people around the world that are looking at the same problems and trying to find various solutions. We have opened a group in Telegram and, because GoodDollar is a not-for-profit organisation and there is no competition, we are trying to collaborate. We are now collaborating with around OpenUBI with about 30 different partners.”
Finally, Assia stressed the importance of GoodDollar not being centrally controlled.  He said:
“We want to build something that will change the world and be as decentralised as bitcoin. If it is decentralised then it is potentially unstoppable. Giving people free money is very powerful. If this works, and we are able to create a system that actually transforms network effect into value, I believe all the rest will fall into place. I think it is a case of if you build the main thing, then everything around it will be built, eventually. We are inviting people to participate – whether it is early adopters, academics, builders, and those who want to help us establish GoodDollar through philanthropy.”

Coinbase Exec Unveils What Hides Behind Company’s New Listing Strategy

Coinbase Exec Unveils What Hides Behind Company’s New Listing Strategy
Dan Romero, Vice President of Coinbase, explained the reasons for the platform’s recent announcement. The firm stated that they are examining several tokens in the market to enhance support for various new crypto assets. The move is significant in contrast to Coinbase’s long known careful approach to supporting individual tokens.
He highlighted the reasons for this drastic move while speaking to Linda Shin on an Unchained podcast episode. As per a suggestion, Coinbase is failing in its approach to add new experimental coins instead of adding already established coins like Bitcoin. Commenting on that, Romero said that the platform is reforming based on customer feedback.
Customer-Driven Crypto Listing Strategy
Also, the recent developments in the cryptocurrency industry have made the firm to result in these changes. Dan Romero confirmed that the latest strategy was primarily influenced by customers requesting the addition of new cryptos to the platform. He said:
“I think our plan now is to list as many cryptos as we possibly can within compliant, legal constraints. Moreover, we want to make information and quality signals easily available for customers so that they can determine if a cryptocurrency makes sense for them.”
Romero explained that they decided to listen to their customers to guarantee the growth of their customer base. Also, he said that in the event customers do not get what they want on Coinbase, they will shift elsewhere. He believes that the ability to switch cryptos is the fundamental piece of functionality in the entire ecosystem.
“Our recent shift in strategy majorly relies on the customers. When we asked customers the number one thing they want, they told us it’s adding new cryptocurrencies to the platform.”
In spite of the SEC’s position on registering securities Romero expressed confidence in Coinbase’s legal and security procedures. The platform is adding new tokens working in tandem with in-house checks and balances. That method aims to guarantee that none of the added tokens is declared illegal by the SEC in the future.
The company’s Digital Asset Framework has let Coinbase create an efficient process that assures quality. Moreover, the framework re-affirms the brand’s position as “trusted and easy to use.”
The XRP Notable Absence on Coinbase
Earlier, Dan Romero said that the company aims at registering 90 percent of legally compliant assets. He also insisted that Coinbase wishes to emulate the traditional stock market in the provision of as many investment selections as possible. When asked, Romero said:
“With a traditional stock exchange, they list everything above a certain quality bar. And ultimately investors and individuals make decisions on what to invest.”
Many users questioned the failure of Coinbase to add XRP to their platform. Nonetheless, the cautious approach is attributed to the pending federal court case between a group of investors and Ripple Labs.
The investors claim that the XRP asset is a security. Hence, Coinbase currently lists the tokens without any legal frictions with regulatory bodies. They believe that the new listing strategy will work since they will offer customer-oriented high-quality solutions.

Ponder: Exciting for Investors, Fun for Users

Ponder: Exciting for Investors, Fun for Users
Ponder, a blockchain-based developer of gamified referrals platform, has already gained the support of some serious backers. The Times Group, through their strategic investment arm Brand Capital, and the Drapers, the famous Silicon Valley VC family, found their concept compelling and promising.
The idea behind the project is to make it fun and gratifying to refer friends and acquaintances to job openings, business opportunities, and even potential life partners – all areas in which we won’t mind a little help from a friend. If a referral proves successful, the referring person gets a financial reward. Brand Capital’s financial backing of Ponder will launch the startup in the Indian market and help it dramatically expand its user community.
The startup is being promoted by the Republic, a crowdfunding platform that was created in 2016 as an investor-friendly, easy to use platform to make investing in tech startups accessible to non-accredited investors.
Minimum investment in Ponder is $100, and investors are protected by the Republic’s Crowd SAFE instrument. Ponder has already received $1.6 million in seed funding from larger investors and is now opening this opportunity to a much broader group of small and large angel investors who find their idea timely.
The platform is made for busy individuals and companies that want to make quality connections. Unlike traditional matching applications, Ponder gets trusted friends and contacts to play matchmaker, using game mechanics and financial rewards as motivators. Ponder addresses a major issue in several important industries – dating, job referrals, and business referrals. All of these markets rely on algorithms when in fact human involvement can be instrumental.
Take dating, for instance. Even the smartest AI technology doesn’t know if John is really the right guy for Marsha. But someone who really knows and cares about Marsha, when they see John’s profile, will think of her and, using Ponder’s game interface, will connect the two profiles. If the match works, the referring friend gets $10 – and happy friends to boot. Isn’t it fun?!
The same principle applies to the project’s job and business referral components, only the matchmaker’s reward amount goes up, while the employer’s expense on new hires go way down. Ponder has already secured a strategic partnership deal with recruiter.com.
The startup’s potential addressable market is vast – $80 billion, so there is a lot of exciting work ahead for Ponder. But as Lao Tzu said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” In Ponder’s case, they are well on their way with their 80 thousand registered users who enjoy playing fun and challenging games while also putting their intelligence to good use and making some money.
The company’s public sale started on July 1, 2018 and will run until March 28th, 2019.

What do Mariah Carey, Akon and Mel B Have in Common?
Celebrities are just people and they do not live in their separate world. They also may be captured by modern trends and innovative technologies. Cryptocurrency boom has also made numerous celebrities to get involved in the industry. Who has said that it’s impossible?
Bestbitcoinexchange.io has prepared a list of the most well-known music artists who have joined the crypto community. In the list, you will find not only those who have managed to make successful investments and get profit but also those who have lost their chance.
Do you know who was the first mainstream musician to start accepting payments in the form of Bitcoin? Have you heard whose albums could be purchased using cryptocurrency? Or maybe you know about celebrities who supported MONERO?
If you haven’t heard about these facts earlier, they may seem to be rather surprising for you. Nevertheless, not all of them represent themselves stories with a happy end.
DJ Khaled, who is also mentioned in this list, was involved in the promotional campaign of one ICO project called Centra and, as a result, has faced with serious fines.
Coinspeaker has already reported that Centra was shut down by the US SEC and its co-founders were arrested. For being involved in and promoting this project on his social media accounts, Khaled was obliged to give back all the money that he had received for the advertisement and to pay additional fines.
Nevertheless, the majority of cases mentioned in the list that you will find below are much more optimistic.
The entire world is being transformed under the influence of new technologies. Who knows, maybe with such a team of supporters, one day the global music industry will also be completely different due to the application of the digital ledger technology.

Mike Novogratz on Bitcoin: “Revolutions Don’t Happen Overnight”

Mike Novogratz is one of the most prominent Bitcoin bulls in the industry. The prolonged Bear Market has forced him to yet again share his views and opinion on Bitcoin and why Bitcoin is the “Digital Gold”.
Mike Novogratz, the CEO of the Crypto merchant bank Galaxy Digital said that Bitcoin will without a doubt survive this Bear market and will even thrive in the long haul. He also mentioned that he as well has lost money due to the harsh market conditions. Novogratz said that a few bad market calls can happen to anyone and despite that, he still believes that the Crypto-revolution will come in due time.
“A few bad calls” might be a slight understatement by Novogratz since the first 9 months of 2018 saw Galaxy Digital losing more than $136 million. The bank lost positions in Ether, XRP and Bitcoin.
Mike Novogratz believes in the Bitcoin Revolution
While such losses might hinder most people’s optimistic outlooks, Mike Novogratz remains extremely optimistic about Bitcoin acquiring the long-desired status of “digital gold” and its value proposition.
He told Bloomberg that:
“I truly believe Bitcoin will become digital gold. In a cruel twist of fate, that would make it the only coin out there, which will get to become a legal pyramid scheme – just like gold. Both Bitcoin and gold are similar because they are finite. Even so, all the gold mined throughout humanity’s history would probably fit in an Olympic-size swimming pool. There is simply no way that is worth $8 trillion, but it currently is because we say it is. People need to understand that game-changing revolutions do not happen overnight.”
Novogratz said that he left his position as a Goldman Sachs partner and hedge fund manager as soon as he saw Bitcoin. According to him, it’s a phenomenon like nothing seen before. He joins an ever-growing group of Crypto supporters who state that next year will be pivotal as it will be fueled by huge surge in Institutional Investments.
This summer, despite the bear market had multi-billion-dollar universities like Harvard, Yale and Stanford invest into Crypto. The move can be viewed as nothing short of support for the long-term growth of the assets. Many analysts speculate that due to the hive mind of institutions, these investments by universities will trigger a chain reaction which will ultimately attract other big-name Institutional Investors like pension funds.
Novogratz pointed out that Yale’s Chief Investment Officer, David Swensen put his own money and reputation on the line just to show the world that Bitcoin can be a store of value.

Hash War: The Aftermath and Future of ABC and BSV

The dust has finally settled on the recently fought bitcoin “hash war”. It appears that the aftermath left more than only short-term losses to both blockchains. The hash war has set the stage for a new rivalry, which will most likely drag on for quite a while.
In short, the hash war was a result of the very controversial hard fork back in November. A small group of the Bitcoin Cash community, decided to follow the newly created software protocol Bitcoin Satoshi’s Vision (BSV).
The majority of the community stuck to the original implementation of Bitcoin Cash called Bitcoin Adjustable Blocksize Cap (Bitcoin ABC). After the split occurred, many experts and traders were expecting a sharp decline in the price of one of the blockchains. Ironically enough, both blockchains suffered massive losses and a simple view on the market, wasn’t enough to decide a clear hash war winner.
The aftermath of the hash war
Now that a full month has almost passed, Bitcoin SV has a lot of work to do. Craight Wright, chief scientist at nChain and one of the most controversial people in the crypto community is one of the leading figures in BSV. He is currently focusing on improving the blockchain’s reputation, further developing the project and attracting adoption from more users and potentially business investors.
Adoption is a key word here. After the hash war, the two competing blockchains will mostly battle over who can secure a higher degree of user adoption. Both blockchains see their own cryptocurrencies as a digital form of money. BSV proponents often speak out against Bitcoin ABC and mention that in the long-run, only one of the blockchains will survive.
At the current moment, BSV is unlisted by a few of the most notable crypto exchanges. Despite that, the coin’s value has increased and at the moment is on a par with its rival. At publishing time, ABC is trading at $82.36 and BSV is trading at $75.65 based on data from CoinMarketCap.
Steve Shadders is the director of solutions and engineering at nChain. He has expressed his confidence that BSV will keep moving upwards by stating:
“Businesses and organizations have begun to build on the SV blockchain. I’m extremely confident about BSV’s future because of the businesses that have offered us their support all have a very sustainable business model.”
With the hash war now over, it seems that the winner will not be decided on the basis of hash power. The market will ultimately decide if ABC or SV make the cut.
