Op-Ed: As Canada’s Government Falters, Will Cryptocurrency Gain Ground?

Canada’s government is failing the people. According to www.debtclock.ca the Canadian Government is in debt to taxpayers to the tune of 657 billion dollars. This begs the question: how can they still pay the people after they have already liquidated the rest of their gold reserves? They seem single-mindedly intent on seeing how long they can run deficits before taxpayers notice. Canada’s treasuries are empty, yet the government continues to pay workers in the unbacked currency. Unbeknownst to most taxpayers, they are willingly handing over their labor and selling their products for a currency that is essentially worthless.

How long this charade can go on is anyone’s guess, but the clock is ticking; it’s time for cryptocurrencies to start making headway in Canada and for the people of Canada to get prepared for what’s about to come. Irrespective of party in power or leader, if the Canadian Government pushes their luck much further they will find themselves on the receiving end of a mass uprising, as even the docile, meek, and timid, become fearlessly enraged.

Storming Governments with The Blockchain

Storming Governments with The Blockchain

For many years, our view of the governance model for information was based on the centralized approach. Even now, in the 21st century when most information is already stored in databases, we have gotten used to the idea that data that belongs to us… is not managed by us. Instead, it is managed by certain trusted parties such as governments (national registers), banks (financial databases), private companies (social networks) and so on. However, the rise of Bitcoin has sparked a new debate about the need for those controlling third-parties. Now that we’ve managed to build a transparent, auditable, independent financial system that requires no intervening third-parties, blockchain advocates naturally wonder why we can’t apply these properties – or at least some of them – to other systems. After all, the blockchain has opened the door to a fundamentally new way of managing data – one that belongs to the community. This is the primary question that we’ve decided to cover in this article.

Risk Assessment – Cryptocurrency’s Vulnerability to Nuclear War

Risk Assessment – Cryptocurrency’s Vulnerability to Nuclear War

Based on the findings of leading news outlets that have historically acted as an early warning mechanism for the public, global nuclear tensions appear to be at an all-time high and people are woefully underprepared. All-out nuclear war would instantly set civilization back 100 years. The initial blasts could kill billions. Those who survived would face food shortages, famine, infertile crops, and billions of tons of dusty smoke that would block out the sun. When coupled with an irradiated, uninhabitable environment, this recipe for chaos will all but entirely halt productivity. No productivity means no goods are produced, eliminating the need for any currency, let alone a digital one. The systems that support society would crumble, leaving only the arduous task of rebuilding while simultaneously tending to victims and trying to provide basic survival for oneself.

How Payment Disintermediation Can Substantially Boost Consumer Spending

For many years intermediaries have found a way to wedge themselves between consumers and merchants, profiting from both sides and making transactions below a certain dollar value all but impossible. Thanks to the internet, the world we know is changing very rapidly, and increased competitiveness in the payments sector is providing people with options that never existed before. The increased competition from small business and startups is creating the beginning of a fee-slashing snowball effect and putting more money in the pockets of consumers. And as consumers gain access to income that would otherwise be allocated to pay for financial services, businesses will immediately enjoy revenue increases and widening margins as their payment processing fees are all but eliminated overnight. With this extra money at their disposal, they can more effectively for expand the business, provide better products, and ensure that customers get even more value for their dollars.

Will Cryptocurrency’s Great Recession Turn into A Depression?

Will Cryptocurrency’s Great Recession Turn into A Depression?

With the rounding out of 2018’s second fiscal quarter quickly approaching, the threat of recession designation is looming over the cryptocurrency industry and investor confidence has been shaken. By definition, recession is a period of economic decline during which trade and industrial activity are reduced, generally identified by a fall in GDP in two successive quarters.

Bitcoin began the first fiscal quarter with a valuation above 13,000 USD and slumped to 6,700 USD at the end of the quarter. Therefore, in order to stave off being labelled a recession going into the third quarter, Bitcoin would have to rebound back over 6,700 USD (not adjusted for inflation). Bitcoin currently sits at 6,200 USD.

Trust and the Crypto Ecosystem: Why the Crypto Industry Should Welcome Sensible Regulation

While many crypto investors are keeping an anxious eye on the blockchain bubble, there is another area of concern that they should also be watching: the regulatory front. Even now, state and national governments around the world are stepping up their efforts to bring some sense of regulatory order to the cryptocurrency ecosystem. And while it’s true that digital currencies were originally developed as a way of getting around invasive financial controls, there should be little doubt that the industry must eventually make peace with the idea of sound regulation if it wants to ever achieve true mass acceptance and adoption.

Op-Ed: It’s Vital to Understand that Cryptocurrency is a Real Industry

During a meeting with my boss several months ago, he brought up a matter of scheduling – and I did not have my calendar in front of me. “What? No calendar?” he exclaimed. “You need to have your calendar with you; you need to write everything in it, and you need to bring it everywhere you go. That’s what people who have real jobs with real responsibilities do.”

Op-Ed: ICO’s Are Damaging Crypto

ICOs or Initial Coin Offerings are used by cryptocurrency startups as a way of getting around the heavily regulated capital-raising process demanded by banks and investors. ICOs offer a percentage of the cryptocurrency for sale to early investors in exchange for fiat – or crypto – currency, but most commonly for Bitcoin. Because it is unregulated, it’s very popular in today’s crypto industry. According to Coinschedule, more than US $2bn was raised in March 2018 alone, and nearly US $5bn in the first financial quarter. Basically, they function like Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) or crowdfunding.

Why Coin Age Matters in Cryptocurrency

When most people hear about the 1600 cryptocurrencies and ICO tokens listed on CoinMarketCap, they assume that number includes every one ever launched. This assumption may come after they scroll down to the end and notice hundreds that have no marketcap and/or no volume. The bottom of the list is often referred to the graveyard – a place where abandoned coins go to die. The real graveyard however, is wherever they go after they are removed from the listing. At least while they are on CoinMarketcap, for better or (usually) worse, there is a marker of their demise.
