It’s Invest Diva's Kiana Danial https://www.investdiva.com/ with NewsBTC and today I’m taking a look back at the Golem crypto and its token GNT. Ranked number 46 in terms of coin market cap, Golem coin has been one of my favorites in top 50 because of their focus on fast rendering and machine learning. Warsaw-based Golem is a decentralized, distributed super-computer established on the Ethereum platform, tapping into the global network. When you want to use Golem’s technology to do something for you, like rendering your complex images, it can do it for you in a fraction of the time of your normal computer. It automatically finds the best computer to do the job and pays that power provider for the task. Since Golem is distributed, anyone can use it for tasks, or offer their computer power to get paid by the blockchain. Even though it’s based on Ethereum blockchain, you can also use Golem’s platform to build your own projects. Now let’s take a look at the Golem Network Token, or GNT. according to their white paper, GNT coin is designed to ensure flexibility and control over the future evolution of the Golem project. Its market cap stands at around $165 million with a total supply of 1 billion GNT. Looking at GNT’s price action on the daily chart, Tuesday marked an interesting point on its value versus Bitcoin. The GNT/BTC pair broke above the daily Ichimoku cloud as Golem gained over 5% by the end of the New York trading session. This could be a medium-term signal for future gains in the cryptocurrency. What do you think about the Golem project and its cryptocurrency value? Will you consider adding the coin to your crypto portfolio, even though it’s ranked relatively low based on market cap?

It’s Invest Diva's Kiana Danial https://www.investdiva.com/ with NewsBTC and here is your cryptocurrency update. The Ethereum-based cryptocurrency, 0x (ZRX) gained over 13% on Tuesday after Coinbase exchange officially added it to its platform. In addition to Coinbase’s initial announcement on October 11th, that they’ll support ZRX, the exchange is also allowing full-on trading capabilities for the altcoin. This is the 5th tradable cryptocurrency on Coinbase and has many market participants wonder why it was chosen. After all, Coinbase had a choice to add top-performing cryptocurrencies such as Ripple’s XRP or Stellar Lumens (XLM) to its platform. 0x is ranked 24th based on market capitalization, but the Coinbase listing could help it climb up to top 20 in the next few months. One of its unique features is that its both centralized and decentralized, meaning it facilitates fast exchanges, like a centralized platform, and secure transactions, like a decentralized blockchain. On top of all this, 0x has lower fees than Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH). Looking at its price action on the daily chart, ZRX/USD tested above the daily Ichimoku cloud on Tuesday after the news, reaching a key pivot and 23% Fibonacci retracement level of 0.86. While we could expect a pullback based on Ichimoku Kinko Hyo guidelines, the door is now open for further gains towards the 38% Fibonacci level of 1.09. Now I’d like to hear from you. What do you think about Coinbase adding 0x instead of other famous altcoins? How bullish or bearish are you on the cryptocurrency? Let me know in the comments, and subscribe for more updates!

It’s Thursday, October 5th, I’m Kiana Danial, CEO of Invest Diva with NewsBTC and here is your crypotocurrency update. After consolidating for a few days, Ripple showed a strong bullish sentiment against the US dollar on Wednesday, forming a morning star candlestick pattern on the daily time frame. The Ichimoku Kinko Hyo’s fast moving average, the Tenkan line, has aso crossed above the slow moving average, the Kijun line, which indicates our second bullish signal for the XRP/USD pair. The future Ichimoku cloud remains flat and slightly bearish. With that, we could expect Ripple to continue its range within the medium-term resistance and support levels of 0.2591 and 0.17 in the foreseeable future. The surge happened as an interview with Ripple’s CEO, Brad Garlinghouse, resurfaced on Forbes, talking about what sets Ripple apart from other cryptocurrencies, and its future. He said some of their customers are already in the early stages of using xRapid, Ripple’s XRP liquidity solution. According to Garlinghouse, payment providers and banks can use XRP to fund their payments on demand, without intermediaries, at a cost that is less than half of the current cost. Thanks for watching, invest responsibly, and I’ll see you with more updates next time.

It’s https://www.investdiva.com/ ‘s Kiana with News BTC and here is your cryptocurrency update. Today we’re looking at a lesser-known altcoin called WaltonChain, as per the request of one of our Invest Diva members, Mike. Waltonchain, or how it’s known to the crypto crowd, WTC, is a China-based company that claims to have created a “Value Internet of Things” ecosystem combining the blockchain technology with something called RFID. Value Internet of Things or VIOT, creates a business ecosystem integrating the real world with blockchain.Walton is both an acronym for “Wisdom Alters Label Trade Organization and Network,” and the name of the man who came up with the idea of patenting the RFID in 1983. RFID stands for Radio-frequency identification. It refers to the idea of having a simple process that would enable a true merging of a digital value with a real-life physical object. It provides a unique identifier for things like mobile and credit card payments. WaltonChain aims to create a more efficient market, a business ecosystem that would allow clothing industries and products with RFID technology within the Internet of Things to establish a solid environment. With that, members can have access to fast and cheap transactions by establishing a connection between nodes, chains, products and the Internet of Things. These will all be supported and operated by WaltonChain. Now, of course, our only source to research about WaltonChain at this point is to read through their proposals and decide whether they are genuine about their claims and ambitions. However, they have been able to sign partnerships with companies such as China Telecom’s Zhangzhou branch, as well as the US-based company, Loci, which has created a platform for IP research. At the time of filming, WaltonChain ranks 40 in terms of coin market cap and has been down 7% for the day. After falling from the all-time-high levels above $42 back in January, it has been having a hard time breaking above the resistance level of $27.34. Thanks for watching, invest responsibly, and I’ll see you with more updates tomorrow.

It’s https://www.investdiva.com/ ‘s Kiana with News BTC and here is your cryptocurrency update. Majority of cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and others in top 30 continued to consolidate throughout the weekend. But there’s been one altcoin which saw rapid gains. Siacoin, ranking 29th in terms of coin market cap, gained 16.60% on Sunday after ranging for 4 consecutive days. Sia is tapping on the hot cloud storage industry, aiming to reinvent it. Their technology connects users who need to file storage with hosts worldwide offering underutilized hard drive capacity. Sia’s blockchain technology secures their data and enables improved economics for users and hosts. In other words, Sia takes cloud storage out of the hands of providers and puts it back into the hands of individuals. Sia’s platform consists of both providers and clients. The ecosystem will provide flexible storage options and will be largely free-market driven. Unlike other cryptocurrencies that require proof of work or proof of stake, Sia implements proof of storage to protect clients from fraudulent or malicious providers. Sia’s investors include Raptor, First Star Ventures, Fenbushi Capital, and INBlockchain. SiaCoin or SC is currently trading at 0.015 again the USD, well below its all-time high level of 0.115 from back in January 2018. Today’s gains have brought the pair closer to a key resistance level. The next resistance level is set at 0.030. Thanks for watching, invest responsibly, and I’ll see you with more updates tomorrow.

It’s Invest Diva's Kiana Danial https://www.investdiva.com/ with News BTC and here is your cryptocurrency update. Another big day for the cryptocurrency market as major coins extended their gains from the beginning of the week. While there is an obvious technical reason behind the surge as I covered on Monday and on Tuesday, the fundamentals have also played a big role. Here’s an overview of the biggest positive news coverage for today. First and foremost, the world’s first bank-owned cryptocurrency exchange opened in Japan. Japanese financial giant SBI Holdings formally launched its cryptocurrency exchange platform, on Tuesday, calling it VCTRADE. The launch came nearly two years after its initial announcement and after months of delays this year. So the fans obviously got a kick out of that. The other big news was from the US tech giant, IBM, who has teamed up with financial technology start-up Stronghold on a cryptocurrency that’s pegged to the U.S. dollar. IBM is exploring whether a cryptocurrency pegged to the U.S. dollar may be a better option for making payments than other digital currencies, which tend to be volatile. While this news could be bitter-sweet for crypto-fans, to people who are on the fence about the whole cryptocurrency industry, this could mean that the industry is here to stay, one way or another. The third piece of positive news came from Goldman Sachs and its new CEO, David Solomon. His new position announcement created a buzz in the crypto market, because he is known to be keen in Bitcoin and other digital coins. So there you have it. The bullish market could continue until the end of this week, but remember that what goes up, must come down. Personally, I believe we could still see another round of pullback before the real uptrend restarts in the markets. Thanks for watching, invest responsibly, and I’ll see you with more updates tomorrow.

IOTA remained the solo winner across the cryptocurrency market over the weekend, as it saw a 6.74% gain on Sunday as calculated by CoinMarketCap. The gains come as Taiwan’s capital, Taipei, continues to work on a partnership IOTA Foundation to explore smart city solutions. We need to keep in mind that there is a big difference between IOTA and the rest of the cryptos. While majority of cryptocurrencies base their technology on blockchain, IOTA is instead basing it on Tangle, a distributed ledger technology. This enables money and data to be transferred through its network. But, unlike blockchain, for every transaction that is made on Tangle network, two new ones are validated. So, this ledger technology proves to be ready to deal with high transaction volumes without slowing down. This makes IOTA able to deal with large volumes of transactions per second. On the other hand, IOTA has been building up their foundation team by adding Dr. Julie Maupin, a board member of the Fintech Advisory Board of the German Ministry of Finance and the G20 Digital Economy Experts Task Force, Dr. Hongquan Jiang from Robert Bosch Venture Capital (RBVC), and Johann Jungwirth from Volkswagen. Looking at IOTA’s price action, while it certainly has been seeing gains from previous drops, it still is hanging out around the key support level of $1.08 from back in February. IOTA/USD remains below the daily Ichimoku cloud and it has a long way to go to reach its all-time-high level of $6.42.

Price of Bitcoin $4,174.61 as of 12.18pm EST Well Bitcoin finally managed to break past $4,000 again. At the weekend we saw Bitcoin drop to a new 2018 low. This day last year Bitcoin was over $17,100. The total crypto market cap is looking more positive today as we saw it climb back past $130 billion. The crypto markets have been struggling since the famous bitcoin cash split in November sending the crypto world into a panic with prices of Bitcoin and some other crypto’s dropping to their lowest levels of this year. This day last year Bitcoin Cash was over $3,400. By November of last year we saw the price surge past $1,400. Last December we saw the price of Bitcoin Cash hit an all time high of over $4,000 before starting on a massive path of decline. Before the Bitcoin Cash community famously split last month the price was was hovering around the $400 range. Bitcoin Cash also referred to as the Bitcoin Cash ABC implementation plummeted below $80 this month, but this week it is finally starting to show some positive movements as it surged more than 40% today. It overtook EOS and bitcoin cash is now in 4th place in terms of marketcap. We saw it climb past $175 today. The CoinText Bitcoin cash wallet launch in Bangladesh gave it a boost along with negative sentiment surrounding its rival Bitcoin SV, which stands for Satoshi’s version. Craig Wright, the face behind bitcoin cash SV once claimed he is actually the real Satoshi. Bitcoin SV is in in 9th place in terms of marketcap and it also experienced some gains today climbing past $100, but still some expect it to soon fall out of the top 10.

Stellar Lumens or XLM showed yet another outstanding performance on Monday, days after IBM’s VP confirmed that Stellar is a “big” part of the company’s IBM blockchain platform strategy and relies mainly on Stellar’s technology. Stellar Lumens is being used in a real-world environment for the company’s blockchain solutions. But another thing that is getting people even more excited is the mention of central banks. The biggest aspect of the Stellar-IBM deal is to give central banks an efficient crypto that they can work with. A possible implication of this deal is that Stellar Lumens will become the default crypto for central banks, since IBM already offers many of them tech-related services. A collaboration with Central banks could also see Stellar Lumens emerge as the leader in blockchain based finance, the same market that the likes of Ripple (XRP) are going after. On these updates, XLM/USD appears to have bottomed out at the 0.18 support level for the second time since March 18th, and in the process of forming an apparent Double Bottom chart pattern on the daily format. The neckline of this pattern lies right at the lower band of the daily Ichimoku cloud and the 23% Fibonacci retracement level of 0.26. If the pair successfully breaks through this level in April, we could expect the pattern to be completed at 0.30. Thanks for watching, invest responsibly, and I’ll see you with more updates tomorrow.

Ranked 334 on crypto market cap list, Mobius launched their new DApp store end of June. Since then, their new DApp store has ranked number one on Google search. Not only that, they also announced the Mobius Global Hackathon featuring 800K in MOBI prizes. The new Mobius DApp Store is designed by a former senior designer from Netflix. It does not hold any user or developer crypto assets and is not an intermediary in the DApp payment process. This makes the Mobius DApp Store a censorship-free and decentralized ecosystem where businesses can launch their own unique products. The cryptocurrency aims to connect blockchain to people and their devices. Some users of the new Dapp store include Naira and Stellarball who say it allowed them to “quickly and easily start accepting blockchain payments and connect to the blockchain ecosystem.” On the other hand, Mobius token is not widely available for trading on large cryptocurrency exchanges. You can buy MOBI on exchanges such as BitMart, StellarPort, and Kucoin, only by trading a few number of other tokens such as Bitcoin, Stellar Lumens and Ethereum. Versus the USD, its price surges 3% on Sunday, July 1st, reaching 0.0397.

It’s Invest Diva's Kiana Danial https://www.investdiva.com/ with News BTC and here is your cryptocurrency update.Going through crypto categories could be considered the first step to take when developing your cryptocurrency investment portfolio. Here are some of the most popular cryptocurrency categories and the leading cryptos in each space. Remember that these were just a few examples of many categories in the exciting cryptocurrency world, and that other people may categorize these cryptos differently. You can explore more about cryptocurrency categories in my book, Cryptocurrency Investing for Dummies. The first category includes #1: Payment cryptos. This is by far the biggest category in terms of total market cap. In this group we can find cryptocurrencies that mainly aim to be used as a store of value, transaction, and payments just like fiat currencies like the US dollar. Examples of Cryptocurrencies which fall in this category include: Bitcoin (BTC), Litecoin (LTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), and OmiseGo (OMG). #2: Privacy cryptos. These are the cryptocurrencies that are heavily focused towards transaction security and anonymity. A LOT more than those in the payment category. Privacy cryptos can be a bit controversial because authorities see them as an illicit tool that can be used by criminals to engage in illegal activities, such as money laundering. Nonetheless, some of them have gained popularity. Examples include Monero (XMR), ZCash (ZEC), and CloakCoin (CLOAK). The third category is #3: Platform cryptos. They are also referred to as Decentralized Application Protocol cryptos, or Smart Contract cryptos, or a hybrid of all three. In this category, we can find cryptocurrencies that are built on a centralized blockchain platform and are used by developers in order to build decentralized applications. The most famous example in this category is Ethereum (ETH.) Others include NEO, Lisk and EOS. #4 Exchange-specific cryptos. These are the cryptos that are introduced and used mainly by the cryptocurrency exchanges. These cryptos can be considered as incentives that bring people to their exchange platform. Examples include Binance Coin (BNB) and KuCoin Shares (KCS). There is a growing number of hot crypto categories, including but not limited to finance, property, gaming, medical, and more.

Ripple’s XRP made a massive comeback on Tuesday after CNBC reported that Ripple could launch “a commercial version of its payment platform xRapid "in the next month or so. On the news, XRP saw over an 18% gain which brought it back to the lower band of the daily Ichimoku cloud. Lets take a closer look at the fundamentals and the technicals behind the surge. Ripple, the company developed xRapid for commercial use and it is backed by XRP tokens. The new platform addresses the issue of minimizing liquidity costs and making cross-border payment transactions faster. It claims to significantly reduce the capital requirements for liquidity. While Ripple the company sometimes claims they have nothing to with the XRP token movements, they did partner with crypto exchanges such as the US-based Bittrex, Mexican-based Bitso, and the Philippines-based Coins.Ph. By doing so they are looking to build a “healthy” ecosystem of digital asset exchanges” which will enable xRapid to move between XRP, USD, Mexican Peso, and the Philippine Piso. These are all awesome fundamental news for XRP. Now let’s take a look at the technicals. I talked about a potential Double Bottom chart pattern forming on XRP/USD chart last week and it now looks like the pattern is on its way to reach the neckline at 0.3666. Last time XRP tested this level was a month ago, on August 17th when the crypto saw a similar jump like the one we saw on Tuesday. However, the gains were capped at 0.36 and the pair gradually dropped back to the key support level of 0.2551. What’s different this time? The pair is way closer to the daily Ichimoku cloud. If the bullish sentiment is strong enough to break above the cloud, we could see a potential medium-term bullish reversal which could bring XRP back to key Fibonacci retracement levels at $0.42 and $0.52.

It’s Invest Diva's Kiana Danial https://www.investdiva.com/ with NewsBTC and here is your cryptocurrency update. Today, instead of looking how the markets are doing, I wanted to cover a question I get asked a lot: different types of cryptocurrency exchanges. A cryptocurrency exchange is a web-service that can help people exchange their cash money into cryptocurrencies and vice versa. Most exchanges are more focused on providing services to help you exchange a cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin, into other digital currencies like Ethereum, Litecoin, etc. There are currently three types of exchanges out there: centralized or CEX, decentralized or DEX, and hybrid. Centralized cryptocurrency exchanges are similar to traditional stock exchanges. The buyers and sellers come together and the exchange plays the role of a middle-man. In the crypto-world, “centralized” means to trust somebody else to handle your money. One of the main issues with centralized cryptocurrency exchanges is their vulnerability to hacks. Next we’ve got Decentralized cryptocurrency exchanges who aim to stay true to the pure philosophy behind the cryptocurrency industry. A DEX does not rely on a middle-man to hold your funds. It is a marketplace where buyers and seller come together and process the transactions directly between one another. In other words, DEXs facilitate peer-to-peer trades. Decentralized cryptocurrency exchanges are harder to hack. However, on the flip side, you are more vulnerable to locking yourself out of your money.Other problems with DEXs may include low volumes and low liquidity due to lack of popularity at the moment. Finally, we’ve got Hybrid cryptocurrency exchanges, which are know to be the next generation crypto trading marketplace. They aim to merge the benefits from both centralized and decentralized exchanges. More specifically, hybrids seek to provide the functionality and liquidity of a CEX with the privacy and security of a DEX. Many believe such exchanges are the real future of cryptocurrency trading experience. In the comments below, let us know what type of an exchange you prefer and why. Thanks for watching, invest responsibly, and I’ll see you with more updates next time.

Stellar Lumens (XLM) was the among the only winners in top 10 major cryptocurrencies on Wednesday with its 5.9% gain. It outperformed Cardano by almost 3%, while Ripple’s XRP didn’t quite impress the market participants with its 0.36% gain. XLM’s gains on Wednesday is particularly noteworthy from a technical point of view. Looking at XLM’s price action versus the USD on the daily chart, you’d notice that it broke above the daily Ichimoku cloud for the first time since July 2018. Wednesday’s gains also tested a key pivot and 23% Fibonacci retracement level of 0.2456. The combination may have opened doors for further gains to key resistance levels of 0.2878 and 0.3202. On the fundamental side, some crypto enthusiasts have started to wonder if Stellar is prepping to go head-to-head with one of its main competitors, Ripple. Both Stellar and Ripple are focused on providing the same blockchain-driven solutions, which is to provide a fast, safe, and cheap global transaction. However, beating a company like Ripple who has over 120 financial partners is no easy task. Stellar Lumens is currently ranked number 6 on the market cap list with a market capitalization of around $4.5 billion, while Ripple is number 3, with a market cap of over $18 billion. Now I’d like to hear from you. Do you think Stellar Lumens is the next Ripple, or can it even surpass it? Would you rather invest in XLM or in XRP?

It’s Invest Diva's Kiana Danial https://www.investdiva.com/ with NewsBTC and here is your cryptocurrency update. We had yet another bullish day across the crypto market, with Bitcoin cash leading the top 20 cryptocurrencies with its 16% gain. Bitcoin Cash remains the most popular Bitcoin fork. Since its inception on August 1, 2017, Bitcoin Cash has aimed to effectively eliminate the problems associated with Bitcoin trading. Some distinct features of Bitcoin Cash include faster and cheaper transactions comparing to Bitcoin, and that its ecosystem is maintained and controlled by separate independent development teams internationally. Analysts are expecting further development updates which can change its future. Bitcoin Cash remains the 4th largest cryptocurrency, though its market cap jumped to $15 billion on Wednesday according to coinmarketcap. From a technical point of view, Wednesday’s surge created a bullish engulfing candlestick pattern on the daily time frame, and it could be reaching the neckline of what appears to be a Saucer Bottom reversal chart pattern. A confirmation of this chart pattern could indicate that BCH/USD has bottomed out, although it remains below the Ichimoku cloud with the cloud acting as a resistance. Should this truly be the start of a new uptrend momentum, we could see the 23% and 38% Fibonacci retracement levels of $1475 and $1995 to be reached within the next couple of months. Thanks for watching, invest responsibly, and I’ll see you with more updates next time.

Well let’s take a little look back at the cryptocurrency market this week. The cryptocurrency market has been rather quiet, hovering around the $210 billion level this week. Bitcoin dropped under $6,500 yesterday. So let’s take a little look. This week we saw Bitcoin stuck under the $6,500 level. On Monday and Wednesday we saw it surpass this level, but it could not maintain this momentum as it continued to struggle this week. Today it remains under $6,500. Yesterday Dogecoin experienced the biggest losses out of the top 30, but today we saw it climb back into the green. This small boost came after Coindroids announced that they will be supporting Dogecoin ./ Coindroids describes itself as a completely skill-based game. Winners can apparently win cryptocurrencies from playing with their own crypto. Today Dodgecoin was back in the green, but on Thursday dodgecoin experienced losses of more than 5%. Dogecoin has been on a dramatic downward trend since September. We saw Dogecoin surge in September due to a couple of factors. Many dogecoins fans a blockchain bridge between Dogecoin and Ethereum. Developers are apparently working on a smart contract ‘bridge’ that will facilitate the transfer of Dogecoin to and from the Ethereum blockchain. Its listing on the Yahoo Finance iOS trading app also gave it a boost. And Cryptocurrency exchange Poloniex added dogecoin and four other USDT trading pairs. Dogecoin is currently in 25th place in terms of marketcap. Now let's take a quick look at some other crypto news. Japan’s Financial Services Agency this week gave the cryptocurrency industry the self-regulatory status. This gives legal power to the Japan Virtual Currency Exchange Association to police and sanction exchanges for any violations. Thanks for watching and have a nice weekend.

It’s Invest Diva's Kiana Danial https://www.investdiva.com/ with News BTC and here is your cryptocurrency update. One of the best performing cryptos on Monday was Verge coin’s XVG. The privacy altcoin surged around 10% by the end of New York’s trading session, briefly testing the highs of early September at 0.01738. Ranked 37 based on market cap, Verge boasts using multiple anonymity-centric networks such as TOR and I2P. Their Wraith Protocol is supposed to enable users to send and receive payments privately on Verge blockchain. You can use the Verge QT wallet on almost any platform, from Android to Windows and Linux. They are currently working on their wallet to work on Apple’s iOS as well. Listed on many major crypto exchanges such as Binance and Huobi, perhaps one of the most interesting facts about Verge is the number of vendors who accept XVG as a payment method. Among the most famous ones are PornHub and Tree of Life. Looking at XVG’s price action versus the USD, the price has been testing the lower band of the daily Ichimoku cloud and could be in the process of forming a Saucer Bottom chart pattern. The neckline of this reversal chart pattern is at the upper band of the Ichimoku cloud. So for XVG’s recent moves to be considered medium-term bullish, it needs to break above the pivot level at 0.01960 to reach the resistance at 0.0262. Now I’d like to hear from you. What do you think about Verge coin and its recent surge? Do you think it has bottomed out? Let me know in the comments, and subscribe for more updates!

It’s Monday, October 16th, I’m Kiana Danial, CEO of Invest Diva with NewsBTC and here is your crypotocurrency update. Russia is planning to join the cryptocurrency game, as Russian President Vladimir Putin has officially stated that Russia will issue its own ‘CryptoRuble’ at a closed-door meeting in Moscow. So how will this new Russian cryptocurrency be different? Well, in a true Russian manner, it is unlikely to share the truly decentralized nature of other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum. While it does appear to be blockchain-based, according to local news sources CryptoRuble cannot be mined and will be issued, controlled and maintained only by the authorities. It can be exchanged for regular Rubles at any time. Upon exchange, CryptoRubles will reportedly require some kind of proof of origin, probably like a documented retail transaction or service rendered. The news comes after the first deputy governor of the Central Bank of Russia denounced cryptocurrencies last week, stating that "the ruble is the only transactional currency allowed in Russia as far as we are concerned." The Russian Central Bank has come down at least twice in the last month on all cryptocurrencies. Putin himself called cryptocurrencies risky business last week, saying that they were used for orchestrating illicit activities. With this, the creation of CryptoRuble could give the Russian government the ability to dictate its way into the world of the cryptocurrencies. Thanks for watching, invest responsibly, and I’ll see you with more updates tomorrow.

BitTorrent is planning to create its own cryptocurrency using the Tron network. TRON acquired Bittorrent this summer. And just six months after TRON’s acquisition of Bittorrent, its longtime executive and recent CEO Rogelio Choy has decided to leave the company. Bittorent users will be able to pay for higher file download speeds with this new cryptocurrency on the firm’s Windows-based uTorrent client. The BitTorrent token will be exclusively available to non-U.S. accounts on the Binance Launchpad. This is the token sale platform by cryptocurrency exchange Binance.

It’s Invest Diva's Kiana Danial https://www.investdiva.com/ with News BTC and today I’m taking a look at Initiative Q, the promise of a new “future” currency that created a frenzy on Invest Diva’s Investment group this week. As a crypto enthusiast, you may have already been approached by friends and family with an invitation that only asks for your name, email address and a password to reserve you an amount of the next potential Bitcoin. Except, it is not a cryptocurrency and doesn’t even work on the blockchain- yet. They call it a social financial experiment. There’s only a limited amount of invites, so things can get hyped up pretty easily especially if the link is shared within an online group. After all, who wouldn’t want some free money that can be used in the economy of the future? Doing a quick search online, you’d find a ton of articles that have compared Initiative Q to a Pyramid Scheme. To which, Initiative Q’s Twitter handle has responded with a big ole “no”, claiming that “pyramid schemes collect money from new members and distribute it to earlier members. In contrast, joining initiative Q is completely free. So, clearly, there is no money to hand up the “pyramid” to earlier members.” Personally, I liked the way they described how any currency has come to value in our financial systems, and that is because people demand it and stores accept it for payment. Their website reads: “No buyer will join a new payment network with no sellers, and no seller will offer a new payment option that no buyer uses.” They call it a “self-fulfilling prophecy.” As millions join, advanced payment technologies are deployed, the payment system becomes even more popular, the Q currency becomes valuable. And of course, if you get invited now, you can secure some Qs for “free.” Critics say this is not really free, because they can at least use your name and email address for marketing in the future. Supporters say, what website do you know who doesn’t ask you for this minimal amount of information? At the end of the day, all we know for sure is that Initiative Q has no value today. And whether or not it becomes valuable in the future, depends on how wildly popular it becomes, and how sincere the founders, who are former PayPal people, by the way, are. Now I’d like to hear from you. What do you think about Initiative Q? Have you got an invite yet? Do you think this is just a scam or has the potential to turn into an actual currency in the future?

It’s Invest Diva's Kiana Danial https://www.investdiva.com/ with News BTC and here is your cryptocurrency update. IOTA has been consolidating around $0.5 for over a month, and Monday showed a 5% surge to test $0.6. However, it’s still stuck below the daily cloud on the Ichimoku Kinko Hyo technical indicator, while supported by $0.43, which is the low of mid-August 2018, and near the all-time low levels. Monday’s surge could because of the recirculation of a report from the end of September which revealed different potential use cases for IOTA, including revolutionizing the car insurance industry. More specifically, IOTA revealed in a recent tech event in Toronto how your car can insure itself using the IOTA’s Tangle technology. Tangle can host your car’s real-time data, allowing your car to choose the best insurance plan based on its current situation. IOTA may also be able to eliminate fraudulent payments, which can result in significant cuts in insurance costs. Ranked number 12 based on coin market cap, IOTA’s token, MIOTA, has a circulating supply of over 2 billion. The IOTA project is inspired by the Internet of Things to make machine-to-machine communication more efficient. Now I’d like to hear from you. What do you think about the IOTA project and its token? Do you think their ideas are just wishful thinking or they have a shot in really change the car insurance landscape forever? Let me know in the comments, and subscribe for more updates!
