When the idea of a working digital currency like bitcoin was introduced, many of its early adopters disliked the current bureaucratic system, with a cartel of bankers pulling the world’s monetary strings. Over time, however, something weird has happened and the idea of permissionless innovation perverted into people literally asking nation states for permission, begging for ETFs, and creating a settlement layer for the ‘new 1%.’ Also Read: Bitcoin Ownership: Your Private Keys to Financial Sovereignty Bitcoin Changed Everything — But Some People Want to Pervert the Original Goals Over the last two decades, there’s been a growing faction of anarchists, libertarians, and freedom fighters aiming to change the world. They have become fed up with the sociopaths leading the world into never-ending conflicts and are tired of the central banks printing massive amounts of fiat, devaluing currencies, and causing hyperinflation. Then, after the 2008 economic crisis, a technological innovation called Bitcoin was born, allowing users a medium of exchange that couldn’t be censored. For the first time ever, a software-derived currency gained value, even though it wasn’t backed by a single individual, corporation or nation-state. Many people believe cryptocurrencies are meant to end the nation state’s and central bank’s rule over money. Back in the early days, on Bitcointalk.org and developer IRC channels, Satoshi and other developers discussed many ideas that revolved around removing central authorities. On Feb. 11, 2009, Satoshi posted to the Foundation for Peer to Peer Alternatives (P2P Foundation) introducing his software to the world. Within that…

Most of the top altcoins are not doing all that great as of right now. Things may improve moving forward, as the IOTA price is slowly carving out some gains over the past few hours. There is still a long way to go to speak of an official uptrend, albeit these early signs appear to be rather promising. IOTA Price is Moving Up It is refreshing to see some positive trends forming in the world of cryptocurrencies right now. More specifically, the past week hasn’t seen too much positive momentum, albeit there hasn’t been any real setback either. For IOTA, things have remained at a near status quo for some time now. That is all coming to change, as the value surpassed $0.5 again. This uptrend is materializing courtesy of rather modest gains in the USD and BTC department. Considering how Bitcoin remains stuck in sideways trading, any momentum noted by altcoins is well worth paying attention to. Although a 2% gain is nothing to be overly excited about just yet, it is evident this current gain will put a positive spin on things regardless. Looking across social media, IOTA has been labeled as the cryptocurrency of the day by Crypto Authority. Such an unofficial vote of approval is pretty interesting, even though a lot of IOTA community members will readily agree with that statement. There are different ideas powering different cryptocurrencies, and most of them have some long-term potential. #Cryptocurrency of the Day:#IOTA – A permissionless distributed ledger –…

Altcoins are slowly hitting their stride again after a tremendously bearish 2018. Most markets lost anywhere from 50% to 90% in value. Recovering those losses is difficult, but some coins appear to be better off than others. In the case of Bytom, it would appear the current price trend may remain in place for a while longer After surpassing $0.2, anything seems possible for this altcoin. Bytom Price Momentum Intensifies It is quite impressive to note how some altcoins can effectively buck the overall sideways trading trend. In the case of Bytom, the current gains continue to pile up, which is effectively pushing its value and market cap quite high. These gains are quite impressive overall, especially when considering how all other cryptocurrencies are far less amusing to watch. Over the past 24 hours, there has been a noteworthy 16% gain in Bytecom’s USD value. Combined with a similar gain over Bitcoin, one BTM is now valued at $0.21 or 3,326 Satoshi. A very peculiar trend, primarily because no one appears to be actively discussing Bytom right now. Even so, competition on the market is always a good thing. Looking across Bytom discussions on social media, there is not exactly much variety to take note of. A new weekly report has been issued, which documents some interesting developments taking place behind the scenes. That is a sign of a growing ecosystem, even though one has to wonder what the future will hold in this department. thanks ~ — BYTOM BLOCKCHAIN

During a recent Q3 earnings call, the world’s largest producer of semiconductors, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), forecasted weakening growth for the rest of 2018 due to declining demand for cryptocurrency mining hardware. This outlook comes despite anticipating a significant increase in demand for its 7-nanometer processing chips from the high-end smartphone industry. Also Read: $50 Million Bitcoin Mining Farm Opens in Armenia TSMC Anticipates Weakened Fourth Quarter Growth Lora Ho, the chief financial officer and senior vice president of finance for TMSC, predicts that declining demand for cryptocurrency mining hardware will offset much of the growth expected to be generated through sales of its 7-nanometer chips. Ho stated: “Moving into fourth quarter, despite the current market uncertainties, our business will benefit from the continuous steep ramp of 7-nanometer for several high-end smartphones as well as the demand for 16/12-nanometer for the launches of new-generation GPU and AI. However, this growth will be partially offset by continued weakness in cryptocurrency mining demand and inventory management by our customers.” C.C. Wei, TSMC’s chief executive officer and vice chairman, reiterated Ho’s predictions, stating: “Our second half of 2018 business will be strongly supported by the 7-nanometer ramp-up, which is mainly driven by a few new smartphone launches. However, our business is also negatively impacted by further weakening of cryptocurrency mining demand.” TSMC Reduces Annual Growth Forecast Taking all factors into account, Wei estimates TSMC’s 2018 growth will be approximately 6.5 percent, falling slightly short of the company’s prediction of between seven percent…

Today is a very unusual day in the world of cryptocurrencies. Especially in the altcoin department, things are looking a lot more positive than they have in a while. Although most of the gains are not notable, the optimism is certainly present. ZCash is the biggest gainer of the day in the top 20, as its value is on the verge of surpassing $125 again.   ZCash Price Continues its Rise While most altcoin speculators wouldn’t mind seeing ZCash in the cryptocurrency market cap top 10, it seems that will not happen anytime soon. After a very troublesome trading period throughout 2018, the altcoin has lost a lot of its market cap and volume. That situation is slowly mending itself again, as any uptrend needs to be welcomed with open arms these days. Over the past 24 hours, there has been a notable increase where the ZCash price is concerned. A solid 5% gain in USD value and a near equal gain over Bitcoin show this particular altcoin is in relatively high demand right now. This is primarily because of a rather healthy trading volume, resulting in $87.4m worth of ZEC changing hands. Traders and speculators are convinced the ZEC price will turn even more bullish in the near future. The ascending triangle has been broken in the meantime, and it seems a strong push upward can be expected. For now, breaking the $125 level will be a big challenge, although it can be overcome with some effort. Have you…

The Satoshi Revolution: A Revolution of Rising Expectations Section 5: Saving the World Through Anarchism Chapter 11, Part 3 Crypto Anarchism and Civil Society. The Technology is the Revolution. by Wendy McElroy Not only is democracy mystical nonsense, it is also immoral. If one man has no right to impose his wishes on another, then ten million men have no right to impose their wishes on the one, since the initiation of force is wrong (and the assent of even the most overwhelming majority can never make it morally permissible). Opinions—even majority opinions—neither create truth nor alter facts. A lynch mob is democracy in action. –Morris Tannehill, The Market for Liberty The simplicity of anarchism is stunning: live and let live. Do not use force against those who also pursue their own lives. Most people are anarchists in how they conduct daily life with family, associates, and strangers. Whether or not law enforcement is present, most people behave peacefully, and being violent never occurs to them. It is not a police presence that makes people wake their children for breakfast or greet their neighbors on the sidewalk. Legislation does not persuade them not to murder strangers. Civil society does. It manifests the natural harmony of interests between human beings as they interact and separate to pursue their own self-interests. Violence is the greatest obstacle to the functioning of civil society, especially violence in the form of a state. Just as society consists of individuals cooperating to achieve their own goals,…
