    Cryptocurrency market update: The quiet before the storm?

    At the time of writing, most major cryptocurrencies are trading sideways and nothing has really changed – rather than volumes decreasing in general, which is rarely a good sign for the days ahead. From the current top 10, only Litecoin and Binance Coin seem to be maintaining consistent gains. I’m pretty sure Binance Coin’s price gauge is linked to the current strategy of Binance surrounding adding new tokens to its Launchpad, creating hype around the project, then running ICOs where investors get priority/discounts using the BNB token. Will BNB continue to grow indefinitely? Will investors soon switch back to Bitcoin after cashing out some profits, or will they continue to hold tokens bought during ICOs?

    France: Central bank could issue digital currency after corporation battle-testing

    France’s central bank is unlikely to issue its own digital currency in the near future, according to Pauline Adam Kalfon, a blockchain and financial services partner at PwC. It may not be the best entity to drive forward such a digital currency project, which would sit within the prerogatives of the European Central Bank, Kalfon added. “Having said this, Banque de France could seize technological leadership by following European Central Bank guidance. It is clear that a European-level project would be very complex and challenging governance-wise, requiring alignment and the political consensus of all relevant stakeholders from each member state,” she told Forbes. An interesting option would be to leave the tokenization of fiat currencies to corporations such as Facebook and JPMorgan. “This The post France: Central bank could issue digital currency after corporation battle-testing appeared first on Coin Rivet.

    Alternatives to the modern financial system

    Bitcoin is not the only challenger to our current neoliberal economic situation. Throughout history, in times of strife, people often look for alternatives. The hyperinflation of Weimar Germany, due to the massive reparations of the Versailles Treaty, led to the appeal of Nazism that Hitler was able to manipulate. The struggle of Tsarist Russia in World War One coupled with the high level of disapproval of the inept Tsar led to the Bolshevik revolution. The 2008 Financial Crisis has led to a populist rising in Hungary, Italy, Brazil and, most importantly, the USA. Even the situation with Brexit has links to 2008.

    Bitcoin and the push towards renewable energy such as solar power

    Bitcoin mining is one of the most popular points of attack from critics. Proof-of-Work is extremely energy inefficient, meaning that a lot of electricity is needed to keep Bitcoin running. Whilst this leads to complaints about modern-day issues such as global warming, there could be a positive aspect that might arise. Through solar power, Bitcoin mining can be cheaper and more environmentally friendly. Some of the cheapest energy sources currently available today are renewables. Solar power prices have dropped in recent years, and it makes perfect sense to begin using excess solar power to mine Bitcoin. Through this, the energy worries that arise from Bitcoin mining would diminish.
