I get it. I understand the sentiment. People are nervous about the price in free fall. But when I say trolls, I’m not talking about bears. There seems to be an increase in the number of anti-crypto sentiment here. Comments crying that all cryptos are going to go to zero. What are so many people who don’t believe in crypto at all, believing that everything is going to zero, doing in a crypto sub in the first place? Bitcoin, Ethereum, Monero, doesn’t matter, we are all one!
“With the cost savings, added security, and transparency that a blockchain offers voting and decision making, this platform has tremendous potential for mainstream adoption.”
Horizon State’s Decision Token (HST) will be pushing for more transparency in voting in the future and that statement rings so true. This is one of the few ways blockchain will really be used to change the way we do things.
Vitalik “Not giving away ETH” Buterin on Twitter: “I made a comment buried in a reddit thread yesterday about how my views on privacy have changed over the last few years (I’m more strongly pro-privacy now), and was encouraged to signal-boost it. Here you go:”
Seems to be constantly dumping and a lot harder then the rest of the market. Few coins have lost more then 90% since ATH, only one that I know of that is worse is Bitconnect.
What do you think the reason is? Will it continue dumping to $1 or less? I really feel bad for people that bought at the all time high…
I was talking to a coworker about Cryptocurrency and telling him why now might be a good time for him to get in and start investing. Only problem is in Canada several banks are starting to restrict Cryptocurrency purchases using both Credit and Debit (i.e. TD Bank). For example using your credit card with Coinbase is almost impossible now for most Canadian banks. Coinbase was one of the primary methods for the average Joe to enter crypto in Canada. Me and several other friends got into cryptocurrency early 2017 because of the ease of access. One of the problems with this is that when my coworker tried to purchase cryptocurrency on Coinbase recently and got rejected he didn’t bother trying other avenues. Other not as well known options however do work such as COSS. I recommended he try COSS which added a new FIAT purchasing gateway recently. He was able to successfully deposit USD using COSS and purchased ETH. Anyways the point is that having more FIAT gateways is extremely important so that users have several options of purchasing crypto in case one option doesn’t work. We need to do our part and help spread awareness of other FIAT gateways that have worked well for others. Another one for Canadian users that works really well is Coinsquare. So if you’re stuck figuring out how to invest in Cryptocurrency give COSS or coinsquare a try!
