Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Bitcoin Gold (BTG) Bitcoin SV (BSV) Chances are, you don’t think about any of these when you think of Bitcoin. After all, they’re not really Bitcoin, are they?

What’s Up with Facebook and Cryptocurrency?

It’s complicated When it comes to volatile relationships, nothing beats Facebook’s stance towards cryptocurrency. The social media giant went from neutral to somewhat supportive, then they turned around and banned cryptocurrency from being advertised on their platform. Then, last month, they reversed their anti-cryptocurrency ban and scaled back restrictions on blockchain and crypto advertisements. And here’s the kicker.

Facebook has always toyed with the idea of developing their own digital currency, even as they suppressed crypto’s presence on their actual platform. But Facebook isn’t just talking about…

The technology is still new, and with the exception of a handful of countries that have chosen to embrace cryptocurrency, most are still apprehensive to it. There have been countless times where the markets came to a grinding halt as the world waited to hear what the United States, China, or South Korea would say about cryptocurrency­. Sometimes, the markets even tanked because of it. None of the previous policies against cryptocurrency by a major country…

How Crypto Should be Regulated

The world of crypto should embrace regulation! Now, I know “regulation” is a dirty word and some of you are likely already cursing my name. Yes, it’s a touchy subject for many within the industry but hear me out for a few minutes… there’s a method to my madness I assure you. So don’t hang me just yet, it may not be quite what you think. A good bit of what I’m about to say may well not be very popular among a portion of readers and while admittedly my opinion shouldn’t be the sole reason you change your views…

Are Banks and the US Dollar Safer Than Crypto?

One of the biggest barriers preventing cryptocurrency from being adopted by a mainstream audience is safety. To the average person, crypto is the unknown. They don’t understand how it works and why it’s different than the traditional financial systems they’re used to. On top of that, crypto has built a reputation of being unsafe due to: Its popularity with scammers, hackers, and people buying illegal drugs. Market volatility and pump-and-dump investment groups.
