That might be what we are looking at with Electroneum. In this video I explain how DASH did a great job of marketing themselves and despite being a clone coin and questionable ability to anonymize transactions like they were declaring it has went to absurd price levels mainly from effective marketing. Monero doesn't have a marketing budget set aside like that but Electroneum could potentially take the cryptonote technology into a more user friendly use case and they have the money to market it and the cult following for Electroneum is already there and coming out in droves online on YouTube and other social media platforms. I have been blown away with how much people are defending the project and how they are attacking people who say the slightest negative thing about it declaring they don't know anything. That was a clear signal for me to mine the hell out of it and buy into a bigger position. what is the next bitcoin, what is electroneum, best crypto currencies for 2018, is ethereum better than bitcoin, is dash or monero better, how to mine electroneum

More big money is come to the EOS ecosystem. I’m mainly looking at this as Peter Thiel and Jihan Wu are investing in a venture capital firm where they will get a return on the loans issued to development groups who are building on EOS. This is great news and brings a lot of attention to the ecosystem.

Getting set up on the crypto exchanges that are a fiat gateway can be frustrating. It always feels like you have to do more through the exchanges than you have to do to get a new bank account. It is digital money so scammers can have a field day with it so I get some of the precautions. It just really gets annoying sometimes though. I think it is only going to get worse out on the exchanges. Hopefully in the next 6 months.

By not adding EOS and other projects such as TRON, Ripple, Stellar, Steem, and other projects that have faster block times than Ethereum it was likely a good thing for EOS because there wasn’t all this downward pressure on EOS as the tide went out and people were getting pressed out of their positions.

BitShares is one of the top blockchains in terms of transaction volume. It went through a couple month of sell off and was primed for another Moon landing!!! It is currently going Parabolic which makes sense because the whole ecosystem makes a ton of sense and also people don't trust these centralized exchanges. The more things go decentralized the better off we are. BitShares allows you to create your own user name and control your own keys to your wallet in a decentralized manor.

I don't feel that Ethereum has fulfilled the promise of a world computer and after 3+ years of development there are only a couple of decentralized applications running on it. Etherdelta and CryptoKitties and just those two applications are pegging the entire network. That is pretty sad to be honest with you. In my opinion by the time it tries to scale it will be too late and EOS will be out with free instant transactions and a lot better platform to develop on.

There are several reasons why I diversify into Altcoins and don't just buy Bitcoins. One is the code base. Bitcoin and Litecoins share a large majority of their code. If some sort of exploit is found for Bitcoin then it could potentially take out a large portion of other coins as well. So I like to invest in coins with different code bases. The delegated proof of stake chains like STEEM, BitShares, EOS, and TRON have different code bases and so do the cryptonote coins like Monero and Bytecoin. I also diversify from the aspect of what it is used for. Just currency or if it is a smart contract platform or a transactional network like Ripple / Stellar. Even within currency I will diversify further down into Anonymous cryptos and DAGS like Nano.

The pattern is always the same. Assertive alpha male characters who talk in general terms but don't actually ever say anything. You could watch Grant Cardone, Tai Lopez, and Gary Vaynerchuk all day everyday but wouldn't have any piece of information that would help you accomplish anything. Maybe a little motivation can go a long way??? It isn't all bad thought because their online content is free and it is clear that when you go to their events that you will be paying to go there. So I really can't label them as scammers for the most part. Sometimes I feel like Tai Lopez toes the line on the deceptive part which could land him as a scammer. Overall I'm pretty neutral on these guys overall to be honest. A lot of people are surprised to hear that I'm not more critical of them. Tai was pretty up front about the fact that all his cars and the house are leased in the h3h3 piece. The fact that he even let Ethan come over was cool. I'm sure he is a pretty cool guy but at the end of the day I don't think anyone is going to learn anything from is courses or seminars that they couldn't learn in more depth by doing some research online about the topic.

People are asking me how low crypto will go. The pain is very real and at the end of the day as with any market the coins are only worth what someone is willing to pay for them or what you are willing to pay for them. 95% of crypto is speculation. Despite having utility even the coins that would seem to be poised the best haven't done well in this market. Steem for instance has dropped over 96% of its value when back when it had 100% inflation it lost 98%. You would have thought it would have been more insulated than that.

People are off loading their GPU rigs for cheap on eBay. Every crypto boom the GPU market goes insane and every time there is a crypto crash the miners get destroyed sometimes way worse than if they would have just bought the coins. Even though mining is awesome there are a lot of issues with getting involved in it. For starters your computing equipment is a depreciating asset. It will become worth less as time goes on except in extremely rare situations. Also the Ethereum block reward is being reduced soon so it will squeeze the people mining with GPUs even more. It will likely bring the price even lower because people can only hold on so longer until they throw the towel in and sell their rigs and sell their coins. Friends Don't Let Friends Buy ASICS !!!!

I want to take over Jerry Banfield’s Witness Node Position. There have always been a lot of things wrong with STEEM but the concept makes sense. One of the things wrong with STEEM is the witness votes don't decay so someone like Jerry who shut his Witness node down 2 months ago is still in 35th position. I would like to take over that position to support good content creators, 3rd party development, and have a louder voice about the things wrong on the STEEM blockchain.

The Bitconnect Ponzi Scheme imploded yesterday and these scammers are still trying to scam people. Craig Grant, Trevon James, Crypto Nick, and Ryan Hildreth are laughing and tell you to move on and Craig and Trevon are actually telling people to HOLD their BCC coins and even buy more at the "low prices." It is really sad because herds of sheeple are still supporting Craig and Trevon. It is really sad to be honest. A lot of people have asked if Crypto Nick can end up in Juvy for this and the other three dream teamers end up in Club FED. It is possible for that to happen but what is more likely is that one or a few people who got scammed launches a civil lawsuit against these guys. A class action lawyer might take it up but it makes the case a lot harder because suing and actual entity is going to be extremely tough and these guys can hide their crypto and the case wouldn't go to trial for years potentially. I'm not a big fan of all the civil lawsuits and I think it is more likely that these guys get off and will live the life style of the bitty rich and somewhat famous but mostly hated.

https://steemit.com/@brianphobos - Follow my blog on Steemit. This video is part of a more in depth blog post. I have an issue with a tooth and pretty much determined that I would need a root canal. The two options are to get a root canal and then have a porcelain crown put over the tooth or to have the tooth extracted and then get an implant done where they drill into the jaw bone and put a fake tooth in. It is cheaper to get the root canal and crown done. That is going to be around $580 to get all that done. In Tucson, Arizona it would be around $2,000 to get all that done so it makes sense to get it done in Mexico. A lot of people from Arizona go down to Nogales, Mexico for medication and dental work.

The past couple years have given rise to more crypto related social media platforms and two of the working video platforms at this time are DTube which is built on the STEEM Blockchain and BitTube which mainly stores everything in a centralized database but uses IPFS for decentralized file storage and utilizing a clone of Monero for the underlying currency. BitTube seems to be at a point right now where no one is really earning anything at all and I have my questions about that mechanism. They want to make it so you can earn crypto by just surfing around the web and watching YouTube videos or playing around on Facebook. That to me doesn't make a whole lot of sense and it seems like investors into the currency could get screwed by that system. Over on DTube there is more money being earned even with the price of STEEM in the dumps. You can have higher resolution content hosted over on BitTube in relation to Steemit.com. Overall with all the issues with DTube and STEEM it seems that it would be more worth your time to upload on DTube

The Audi S8 is a splash of luxury and a splash of 450 hp of performance. The engine is the same one used in the Lamborghini Gallardo. To be clear the engine is an Audi engine that Lamborghini used as well. From everything I have seen the engine put out too much torque in this configuration when they adapted it for the Lamborgini Gallardo. The Lambo is lighter and a solid performer but doesn't produce as much torque as the Audi S8. This car had been on my radar for awhile but I got more serious about buying one of these cars a couple of weeks ago. Growing up my family mainly had vehicles produced by General Motors. This is my first European car. I plan on doing a lot of modifications to this car when I will go over in future videos. A sort list of some of the modifications includes front and rear splitters, side skirts, and a spoiler. Also wheel spacers and a loud plasti dip coat that some people will hate and others will say SICK!

https://steemit.com/@brianphobos - There is a lot of FUD surrounding EOS right now. Some of it is out of fear from Ethereum investors and part of it is just people uneasy about the wording of the disclaimers from Block.One. They are just covering their asses so no government entity can point at them as the root of the problem and try to smash them. In the end I think Ethereum will still be a main artery in the crypto space but EOS will become the backbone. I believe there will be one main implementation of the EOS software and Block.one will become like the Linux Kernel Developers working on the base implementation. Then there will be the one main chain that will launch and a couple other competitors who will potentially brand it slightly different and make different decisions overtime. Even HODLing EOS for almost a year now, reading the white paper, doing videos about EOS, consuming as much information about EOS as I can, and running the DAWN 3.x version of the testnet it wasn't until recently that I realized the block time for EOS is 0.5s. To put that into perspective the STEEM blockchain produces a new block every 3 seconds so if things didn't run into latency issues then the EOS blockchain will have 6 times the transaction capacity that the STEEM blockchain has currently and STEEM and BitShares are nowhere near total utilization. That is pretty insane to think about!

Komodo turns out to be a very ambitious project that is an anonymous crypto currency using zero-knowledge proofs the same way ZCash has them implemented. It is also a platform you can do smart contracts on, launch Decentralized ICOs, and has a decentralized exchange that utilizes atomic swaps. BarterDEX Download - https://github.com/SuperNETorg/BarterDEX/releases In some ways it is confusing how everything is going to fit together on the Komodo platform but I ultimately see some good signs overall with the project. The fact that they have a mineable coin and an existing platform that is being heavily developed is a very good sign. I think that this project is somewhat under the radar at the current time.

IT security threats are going to continue to increase so can there be a blockchain solution to help protect companies and individuals from these threats? In this review we are looking into the PolySwarm ICO that is going to start on Feb. 20th. There is a $50 Million cap on the ICO and there are bonuses if you get in earlier. The project is ambitious but they have a very good team capable to getting the job done. One of the things they want to do is create an open source AntiVirus Engine that people and companies can run scans with and the solutions might be in the PolySwarm ecosystem already. Why build this solution on a blockchain? To me it really comes down to the payments mechanism that is controlled mainly by code without a centralized authority having to intervene that much.

If I wrote a white paper describing something that already exists and made the logo a three dimensional geometric shape like Ethereum or EOS, would you guys give me a couple billion dollars? I initially had some TRON air dropped to me in HitBTC. I let it simmer and it went parabolic! I researched into the project some more and was blown away that it had such a big market cap for not having any platform currently running and essentially just describing the STEEM and Golos eco system in a cryptic way in the white paper. Could they put their own twist on this type of system that will take off in a different way over in Asia? Sure it is possible but I would like to see the platform in action before maintaining a position in it. Also it hasn't had a big pull back yet of people taking profits and we typically see that with every project. It will rise up and the early investors will take some skin out of the game.
