Legal? The Future of Cryptocurrency and the Law

January 5, 2021

Cryptocurrency is a relatively recent invention, especially when we compare it to a traditional currency, which has been around as long as humans have lived in organized societies. But with any new development, there is a natural hesitancy in acceptance of change, especially from those who are in control of the old ways. But does this hesitancy translate into cryptocurrency being illegal? Let’s take a closer look at the legality or otherwise of cryptocurrency today.
Property or Currency?
Since cryptocurrency is an alternative to national currencies, and they don’t comply with the same regulations that a central bank would enforce on official currencies, governments are hesitant to acknowledge them as real currencies. In many places, the legal establishment has deemed cryptocurrency to

ETH/USD Technical Analysis: What can we Expect Next?

October 21, 2020

Ethereum, which was launched in 2015, is the second largest cryptocurrency after Bitcoin in terms of market capitalization. It was trading sideways for two years, at around $ 10, until 2017. That was the year of the “Gold Rush” for cryptocurrencies, and the ETH price started to increase in March. The ETH/USD had jumped to $ 50 by the end of that month, which meant a 500% increase. That was a sign that the market was changing, and a wave of buying was coming. We saw a retrace in July and September, but that year turned out to be extraordinary for digital currencies overall.

The double top pattern points to $ 650 for Ethereum
Ethereum surged to $ 1,425 by January 2018 and closed at $ 1,120. 2018 turned out to be the opposite of the previous year, as the Gold Rush ended and the crypto

The biggest crypto trends that shaped 2020

September 23, 2020

Crypto started off with a bang, but later in March, just like many other sectors, it started to fluctuate because of the COVID-19 crisis. Many skeptics expected Bitcoin to drop and for the pandemic to mark the beginning of the end for crypto, but things didn’t go that way. In fact. The drop of cryptocurrency and the drop of the stock market were only correlated for a short while, and Bitcoin’s drop was mainly a liquidity issue because, like gold, it was oversold. In reality, crypto made a quick recovery and even consolidated its role in the “new normal.” Experts estimate that COVID-19 will only normalize crypto payments and that, though unfortunate, it will accelerate the digital revolution. So far, 2020 was a good year for cryptocurrency, and we saw the advent of some exciting trends

Bitcoin Could Change the Global Financial System, Right When We Need It the Most

September 15, 2020

In the face of necessary change, bitcoin and blockchain could reasonably supply the much-needed compromise between what is, and what could be.
In the wake of current events, the majority of the global population has been given a choice. A chance to reset many of the systems that have been irrefutably shown to fail. While it’s not necessary to fully condemn present systems of governance, finance, and social constructs- it is important to accept their failings and ask for something better.
Given the unprecedented glimpse into the more intimate and intricate shortcomings of existing systems, we have also been shown an idea of best practice moving forward. As countries and their individual populations have banded together in both macro and micro scales of economy and society, we have been

Opinion: For Cryptocurrency to Strive It Must Be Regulated

March 9, 2020

Initially, the lack of regulation was one of the advertised benefits of cryptocurrency. However, pitfalls of this came to light really fast as the lack of regulation means that you are lacking protection as well. And while money launders or terrorist groups definitely don’t care about it and focus on how this type of system benefits them, regular law-abiding people might lose their money because of the absence of security. Owners of $534 million lost in the Coincheck hack can attest to that. However, cryptocurre4ncy still isn’t regulated and changes to this particular aspect of it will, most likely determine if it has a future.
What’s the State of Cryptocurrency Regulation Today?
At the moment cryptocurrency is not regulated by any major regulatory authority in any country. In fact, the

Can Bitcoin Replace Gold As A Universal Safe-Haven Asset?

December 9, 2019

In the formative years of Bitcoin, crypto enthusiasts had the vision of a digital monetary system that would replace fiat money. Just over a decade, the world’s pioneer cryptocurrency has posted mixed results. Even though Bitcoin is now a household name globally, it will likely not replace regular money just yet. Instead, Bitcoin has taken a new dimension as a speculative investment asset rather than just facilitating digital payments.
Bitcoin transactions are only going to get slower, and mining more difficult. These factors mean that the latter option, as an investment asset, is more tenable. Gold is the most prominent store-of-value (SOV) asset. With intrinsic value and insulation from stock market shocks, many investors keep a certain amount of Gold for diversification.
Despite the

A Trading Revolution by 50x.com: Incredible Technology is Changing the Way We Think About Trading.

October 21, 2019

The world’s first and only cryptocurrency exchange with the Any2Any technology has successfully completed beta testing of the third version of the quantum trading core with a built-in liquidity flow that will completely change the notion of exchange trading.
Surprisingly, all modern exchanges, like hundreds of years ago, still use fixed trading pairs, which are in no way connected at the level of the trading core and the order matching system. Each orderbook only contains orders placed in a specific pair. Although hundreds of cryptocurrencies have emerged, you won’t be able to directly exchange one for another on an exchange, where prices are set by the users themselves – you will need to change it first into one of two or three “base currencies” supported by the exchange, and then

October 14, 2019

Everyone has heard about the greenhouse effect. Some of them know that it is generally caused by the emission of CO2 (carbon dioxide) which the human activity leads to.

It is great that a simple Swedish schoolgirl Greta Thunberg was able to speak at the UN, drawing the world attention to CO2 emission by industry.
While most people wonder why winters are warm, and there are droughts and catastrophic fires in summer, destroying the hectares of Siberian forests, day by day AQUIX uses all its resources to
