The problem with altcoins

Why no altcoin can succeed

New ideas attract not only visionaries and pioneers but also charlatans and fools. The former group understands the nature and potential of the new idea and attempts to extend it in new ways. The latter observes the success of the former and expects similar results through blind imitation and empty hope, rather like the Melanesian cargo cults which arose after World War II when the American military abandoned its airports there.

Why the exchange rate and public opinion of Bitcoin doesn’t matter

In the short term future, that is...

I’ve had my fair share of conversations about Bitcoin with people who are both for it and against it.

Will Ripple Make a Wave? (Is This the End of Bitcoin?)

Crash!

There. It’s been said. Over the last few days we have seen a significant fall in the price of bitcoin and it will be days to years, or perhaps never, before it recovers.

Why Bitcoin is Becoming Safer than FIAT Currencies

We have now entered a Brave New World of Forex Trading following the disclosure of a US Surveillance program (“PRISM”), central bank manipulation of currencies (“currency wars”) and random acts of regulators (which are not mutually exclusive). With the increasing politicization of the financial markets, Forex traders are now becoming more exposed to market changes from geo-political rather than economic risk factors.

As we know markets subjected to political rather than economic risk factors create unpredictable sharp short term volatility risk and cross country correlation risk which is almost impossible to risk manage and therefore costly to FOREX traders.

How Bitcoin Can Actually Help Iranians and Argentinians

Every few months the Bitcoin media sees it fit to repeat a similar meme: somewhere, in some distant third world land, are some millions of citizens oppressed by rapid inflation or outright theft from a corrupt government, and Bitcoin, being a superior unit of value whose value goes up, not down, can, or in the more optimistic cases already is, swooping in and saving the day.

Bitcoin won't hide you from the NSA's prying eyes

Revelations about the US government's internet surveillance programme Prism appear to have sent the price of bitcoins plummeting.

Specifically, the unveiling on 9 June of 29-year-old Edward Snowden, a former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor, as the source of the leak coincided with a sudden drop in the value of bitcoins, as this CoinLab article details.

Bitcoin isn't PRISM-proof

In the aftermath of the revelation of PRISM, the NSA spying program that collects user data from nine major U.S. tech companies, many have highlighted alternate options from organizations that are not known to be cooperating with government surveillance efforts.

Among those alternatives, Bitcoin has been pegged as a more private payment option. At Prism-Break.org, which lists alternatives to all the services that fall under the PRISM umbrella, Bitcoin is the only listed alternative to online payment services, such as PayPal and Google Wallet.
