Bitcoin Vs. Ethereum
/ 9 Comments /in Digital Literacy /by Chris Castiglione Whats the difference between Bitcoin and Ethereum? First, its important to understand that there are two categories of digital coins:Cryptocurrencies (e.g. Bitcoin, Litecoin, Monero, ZCash, etc) andTokens(e.g. Ethereum, Filecoin, Storj, Blockstack, etc.) Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are competing against existing money (and gold) to replace them with a truly global currency. A global currency which allows individuals to own their own money (without having to rely on national banks). Lower fees for transferring money across geographic borders. Financial stability for people who live in countries with unstable currencies. (e.g. In 2016, the Venezuelas currency hit an inflation rate of 800%). In addition, two-thirds of the current global population has no access to banking, or limited access Bitcoin is changing that. Ethereum is a token.What Bitcoin does for money, Ethereum does for contracts. Ethereums innovation is that is allows you to write Smart Contracts: basically any digital agreement where you can say if this happens, then something else happens. For example: If I vote for the President, then my vote is official and no one else can vote as me. If I sign my name on this document, then I own the car, and you no longer own the car. Up until now weve carried out these agreements with a signature at the bottom of a paper document. Ethereum dramatically improves this model because it is digital, and proof of the transaction can never be deleted. Vitalik Buterin; Other co-founders include Gavin Wood and Joseph Lubin Deflationary (a finite # of bitcoin will be made) Inflationary (much like fiat currency, where more tokens can be made over time) 12.5 at the moment. Half at every 210 Continue reading >>
Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, Iota, Litecoin, Dash, Monero: Price Analysis, Dec.28
Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, IOTA, Litecoin, Dash, Monero: Price Analysis, Dec.28 Still down? Why the crypto market is so volatile right now and what to do about it. The views and opinions expressed here are solely those of authors/contributors and do not necessarily reflect the views of Cointelegraph.com. Every investment and trading move involves risk, you should conduct your own research when making a decision. The market has been volatile over the last couple of days. Does the change in behavior signal a possibility of a further fall? We shall try to forecast it using our chart analysis. The South Korean governments proposed regulations and curbs on cryptocurrency trading have dampened the sentiment. After all, the nation with a relatively small geographical territory is responsible for a sizeable trading volume , about one-fifth by some measures, in Bitcoin. Nick Colas , one of the first Wall Street analysts to cover Bitcoin, believes that 2018 will see a surge in volatility with about 40 percent falls. If that happens, timing the markets become that much more important. A buy and hold strategy, similar to 2017, might not be the best way to trade Bitcoin. We shall try to identify these turning points for our traders so that they dont get stuck with huge losses. In our previous analysis , we had mentioned that Bitcoin s pullback will face a strong hurdle between $15,118.45 and $16,160.02. Yesterday, Bitcoin turned down after reaching $16,494.53. The cryptocurrency has a strong support at the trendline. We expect the bulls to attempt a recovery from here. If they are able to break out of $16,494.53 levels, we should see a retest of the highs. On the other hand, if the BTC/USD pair breaks down of the trendline, it can fall to $12,788.14 levels, which is a Continue reading >>

Bitcoin Price Chart - Ethereum Price Chart - Cryptocurrency Exchange Rates
This Bitcoin price chart is a weighted average of several leading cryptocurrency exchanges. It was constructed by Wall Street professionals to create a truly comprehensive Bitcoin Price Index for: Robust Historic Index:Full market-wide historic index for an accurate view across all major trading platforms since trading began in early 2010. Live Index:Live or End-of-Day (EOD) feed, purpose built for settlement of various derivatives and accurate reference price for general trade & commerce. The Liquid Index calculates a USD price point for one bitcoin at tick intervals of 5 minutes. Incoming transactions are evaluated carefully for inclusion in the calculation as part of this real-time process. The volume weighted average of the transactions from each exchange is taken and then the base exchange prices are combined using Brave New Coins (BNC) proprietary 3-tier technique. This is rules-based on the trading history preceding the tick and is designed to allow the Index to be responsive to sudden market movement while limiting the impact of outlier transactions. Transactions that are not in USD are converted at official current international rates. Currently, this only applies to trades from BTC China for their BTC/CNY transactions & Kraken for their BTC/EUR Transactions. The calculation parameters & index constituents are re-evaluated at every quarterly review of the BNC Index Steering Committee. The result is a superior index which portrays the majority of all legitimate bitcoin trading activity globally, for professional and enterprise use. *Note: this price is not used as an official trading price quote for Bitcoin IRA.

With all of the attention on the Ethereum project right now, there are a fair few digital currency enthusiast who would love nothing more than to see this project overtake Bitcoin in every way. More importantly, when Ethereum reached the market cap threshold of US$1bn, a lot of people expected it to keep going, but the value started plummeting shortly afterwards. At the same time, the Bitcoin price dipped as well. Are these two concepts more alike than people want to admit?

Bitcoin Vs Ethereum: Cryptocurrency Comparison
Bitcoin VS Ethereum: Cryptocurrency Comparison Last updated on June 14th, 2017 at 08:11 pm Since its release in early 2009, Bitcoin has been the trailblazing leader of the cryptocurrency revolution. Countless imitators have come and gone but Bitcoin remains dominant, despite nearing the current limits of its transactional capacity. Ethereum, created mid-2015, is Bitcoins strongest rival But can Ethereum deliver on the hype surrounding its complicated technology, as well as recover from the recent spectacular failure of the DAO , to usurp Bitcoins primacy? Complimentary or Competing Cryptocurrencies? How valid is the frequent claim that Bitcoin and Ethereum arent direct competitors but rather complimentary aspects of the new, blockchain-based economy? The peaceful coexistence theory holds that the web is vast and deep enough for Bitcoin and Ethereum to carve out their respective niches: Bitcoin specialising in its role as digital gold; offering a dependable monetary system free from unbounded inflation and political intervention. Ethereum evolving into the world computer; a blockchain-based programming language enabling code-based contracts and decentralised applications. In practice, matters are more complex. Given the extensibility of cryptocurrency, neither coin has a clearly defined sphere of operation. There is considerable overlap between their functions and markets, with nothing to prevent user migration. For example, additional layers built upon Bitcoin, such as the Rootstock.io smart contact platform, threaten to trespass on Ethereums playground. Rootstock promises to do everything Ethereum can, with the added security of a two-way peg to the more secure Bitcoin network. Likewise, Ethereum has become a popular trading and investment instrument , infringing upon Continue reading >>
Analysis: A Significant Ethereum To Bitcoin Price Chart.
Analysis: A Significant Ethereum to Bitcoin Price Chart. Join our community of 10 000 traders on Hacked.com for just $39 per month. The following guest analysis article is written byTaki Tsaklanos, lead analyst at InvestingHaven. The price of Ethereum largely recovered from this weeks flash crash . Some call it a sell off in a secular bull market, others call it buying the dip. We call it: strong fundamentals, and by that we mean that the price surge is justified by demand driven dynamics. Because of that we stick to our long term Ethereum forecast of $1000 . Talking about fundamental strength in Ethereum, it is interesting to apply traditional relative strength ratios to cryptocurrencies. When analyzing traditional markets we look at the gold to silver ratio to identify which of the two is outperforming or to understand whether a bull market has started or ended. In stock markets the S&P 500 to Russell 2000 ratio is popular as a gauge of risk (the small cap Russell typically outpeformers when investors are in risk on mode). When it comes to cryptocurrencies the most popular way among analysts is to compare market caps. While that is a good indicator it is not the most valuable one in our view. What really is valuable as an indicator is the price ratio, for instance the Ethereum to the Bitcoin price ratio. The reason why we prefer this ratio above a market cap comparison is that, bottom line, whatever the market cap, all that matters is price. The point is that price reflects supply and demand factors; price is the point where supply and demand find equilibrium. The Ethereum to Bitcoin price ratio is shown on the following chart: This ratio reveals a very interesting insight. In March of this year, Ethereums relative strength moved to an all-time high right when it cro Continue reading >>

Bitcoin, Ethereum & Ripple Charts: Successful Retest Or Breakdown?
Bitcoin, Ethereum & Ripple Charts: Successful Retest or Breakdown? January 24, 2018, 06:32:00 AM EDT By Paul Robinson, DailyFX Cryptocurrencies are in 'retest' mode, hold or fold? Bitcoin testing trend-line again, a failure here puts a drop below 9222 in focus Ethereum & Ripple aren't at support levels, but still need to hold soon, or else Find out what traders are doing in Bitcoin on the IG Client Sentiment page , and what it may mean about future price fluctuations. Cryptocurrency retest or another leg lower? The other day we were discussing the possible change in character in price behavior across the cryptocurrency market . If the 'animal spirits' have indeed been broken, another big leg lower could soon be in store. We are nearing a point in time which looks like it's 'hold or fold' time for the group. Last week's plunge and reversals were extremely fierce, indicating a significant inflection point. The modest weakness we've seen in recent days could simply be a retest (a common occurrence at meaningful turning points), and if the case, then we should see the group firm up and turn up. If a breakdown develops below those spike-low levels, then much lower levels could be seen in short order. Bitcoin (BTC/USD) is working its way back lower while in 'retest' mode at the moment, but will need to firm up soon as it has support in the current vicinity. Yesterday, it was below the July trend-line, but managed to close above for a second day in a row. A close below the trend-line will quickly bring last Wednesday's spike-low at 9222 into focus. A break below there could be significant, likely bringing in another wave of selling. A hold here and rally will bring the 13k area of resistance back into play, and will need to be overcome if higher prices are to follow. Want to Continue reading >>

Understanding Bitcoin Price Charts
CoinDesk Launches 2017 Year in Review Opinion and Analysis Series Whether you already own bitcoin or plan to get some, sooner or later youll want to know how much the cryptocoins are worth when converted to your currency of choice . Later, you may want to know whether to hang onto your coins or to sell them hopefully making a little profit in the process. However, analyzing price charts and understanding trading terms from the financial world can be rather daunting, especially for the beginner. This guide serves as a useful primer of the basics. The best place to find out the latest price of bitcoin (currency symbol: BTC or XBT) is the exchange you bought them from ( Bitstamp , Bitfinex and BTC-e being the most popular exchanges at the moment), or Coindesks own Bitcoin Price Index . Knowing bitcoins current price is one thing, but pretty soon youll want to know where prices will go in the future. Forecasting price movements of anything traded at an exchange is a risky probabilities game nobody is right all the time. Many traders have lost lots of money, if not their life savings, into such attempts. The two main approaches to predicting price development are called fundamental analysis and technical analysis . While fundamental analysis examines the underlying forces of an economy, a company or a security, technical analysis attempts to forecast the direction of prices based on past market data, primarily historical prices and volumes found on price charts. To perform technical analysis on bitcoin price and volume history, youll need bitcoin price charts that display data in a more readable manner than just plain number tables. Good places to start are the charts on Coindesks Bitcoin Price Index . The most basic type of price chart displays prices as a line: Closing pr Continue reading >>
Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin Technical Analysis: Comeback Trail
Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin Technical Analysis: Comeback Trail February 16, 2018 By Richard Mora 3174Views 0Comments Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin are showing signs of price stability. After a strong retracement that commenced in mid-December following the strong run-up of the entire cryptocurrency market which saw Bitcoin hit its all-time high near $20,000 on December 17, 2017, the market seems to have finally found its bottom. The retracement has resulted in the entire market giving back most of the of the gains made during the run-up. Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin have been trading similarly up over the last 10-days, and the technical on all three are beginning to look promising for a reversal to the upside. On February 6th Bitcoin hit its local low of $6000.00 approaching a very critical support level of $5806.90. It has since been making higher highs on the daily chart almost every day since then, as can be seen in Chart #1 below. Bitcoin has broken above the downtrend line that has formed since its reversal at the all-time high, as seen in purple in Chart #1. Another notable technical indicator is the fact that Bitcoin is now trading above the 9-day moving average with all 4 data points of the daily bar above the moving average. Furthermore, the 9-day moving average is now on an upward trajectory. The next downward price swing will tell the tail. If the next downswing stays above $6000 before price turns upward, then a reversal may very well be in progress. As can be seen in Chart #2 below, the price action for Ethereum is almost an exact image of Bitcoin. Ethereum traded to a local low of $565.54, also on February 6, 2018. And just like Bitcoin, it has been trading up almost every day since. It also has broken through its downtrend line and is also trading a Continue reading >>

Bitcoin Vs Ethereum: Driven By Different Purposes
Bitcoin Vs Ethereum: Driven by Different Purposes Ethereum has received a lot of attention since its announcement at the North AmericanBitcoinConference in early 2014 byVitalikButerin. The natural consequence of its rising popularity has been its constant comparison toBitcoin, the first virtual currency. It is important for investors to understandthe similarities and differences between BitcoinandEthereum. Bitcoin, the first virtual currency, was born seven years back. It introduced a novel idea set out in a white paper by the mysterious SatoshiNakamoto:Bitcoinoffers the promise of lower transaction fees than traditional online payment mechanisms and is operated by a decentralized authority, unlike government issued currencies . There are no physicalBitcoins , only balances associated with public and private keys. Over these years, the acceptance of the concept of a virtual currency has increased among regulators and government bodies.Althoughit isnt a formally recognized medium of payment or store of value, it has managed a niche for itself and continues to coexist in the financial system despite being regularly scrutinized and debated. The attempts to understandBitcoinmoreclosely resulted in the discovery of blockchain , the technology that powers it. Theblockchainis not just the hottest topic in theFinTechworld but also asought after technology in many industries. Ablockchainis a public ledger of all transactions in a given system that have ever been executed. It is constantly growing as completed blocks are added to it. The blocks are added to theblockchainin linear, chronological order through cryptography, ensuring they remain beyond the power of manipulators. Theblockchainthus stands as a tamper-proof record of all transactions on the network, accessible to all Continue reading >>
