Coinstar Users In The US Can Convert Their Spare Pocket Change Into Bitcoin

Published

on

68% of millionaires

According to an experiment conducted by Covanta Holding Corporation, turns out that Americans throw away about $62 million dollars a year worth of spare pocket change and usually the coins get thrown away accidentally. The recycling and waste management company Covanta’s analysis is what made Coinstar start selling Bitcoin for pocket change so we read more about their idea in today’s bitcoin news.

Despite the fact that a pocket full of change is basically worth nothing these days, it’s no wonder why Americans aren’t careful with literally throwing away their change. You can’t really by anything with a dime so people end up saving them in a jar or simply getting rid of them and this is a clear sign of the global economic inflation.

Coinstar decided that it will be a good idea to make people be more careful with their change. This is how they came up with the idea to build a machine which can convert the change into bitcoin.

This is great news for all those who keep their change and this is also why Coinstar built their coin counting kiosk business which led them to partner with Coinme ATM Company.

The idea of trying to save something not going to waste is the same idea that got eBay on the market, from selling inventories sitting in people’s garages to one of the largest online markets in the world. Uber as well used the unused private vehicles and turned them into money machines for their owners.

So, at the end it won’t just be the $62 million of pocket change that gets thrown away but also all of the jars filled up at the homes of people will now have a purpose.

Bitcoin Trademark Has Its Origins From The Escobar Family

Published

bitcoin trademark
Bitcoin trademark was first registered to no other than the Escobar family according to the official documents acquired from the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The latest cryptocurrency news shows us that Pablo Escobar's brother, Roberto Escobar was the first person to sign next to the Bitcoin’s naming rights. The U.S trademark office document 88055293 details the bitcoin trademark origin as the former owners under the Coin Legal LTD which is an UK registered company. From the UK company database, Companies House, we can see that Coin Legal LTD was founded in 2018 in July by the director Olof Kyros Gustafsson who acts as the CEO of Escobar Inc. according to his Twitter profile: “Investor, Philanthropist. CEO of Escobar Inc.” The Coin Legal’s initial application for the naming rights for the current largest cryptocurrency was signed off by the founder by the company who is not listed on the UK database. The founder is Roberto de Jesus Escobar Gaviria or better known as El Osito (little bear)- who is the brother of the popular drug kingpin and Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. The application for the bitcoin trademark was filed in July 2018 which is one month after Coin Legal registered with the UK business authorities. During this time, as reported in the coming altcoin news, Craig Wright came along with his own trademark claims. He filed his own claim in November 2018 and started a silent ticking bomb that gave the former owners six months to contest. According to the document that was sent to Coin Legal:
 “To avoid abandonment of applicant’s trademark application, the USPTO must receive applicant’s complete response to this letter within 6 months of the issue/mailing date below.”
There was not a single reply so Craig Wright declared himself as the real Satoshi Nakamoto. Coin Legal Ltd’s original claim on bitcoin noted:
 “Financial services, namely, providing a virtual currency for use by members of an on-line community via a global computer network.”
Wright claim goes further:
 “Cryptocurrency, namely, providing a digital currency or digital token for use by members of an on-line community via a global computer network; Cryptocurrency, namely, a digital currency or digital token, incorporating cryptographic protocols, used to operate and build applications and blockchains on a decentralized computer platform and as a method of payment for goods and services.”

Bitcoin Will Disappear: Craig Wright’s Hot New Manifesto

Published

bitcoin will disappear
Bitcoin will disappear according to the blistering manifesto that Craig Wright published in which he rants about ‘’his coin’’ being used for criminal activity. In today’s altcoin news we read more about his new manifesto. The Australian entrepreneur stated that the criminals perverted the official vision for the cryptocurrency and therefore it will continue to exist. Wright repeatedly claimed that he is the real creator of Bitcoin Satoshi Nakamoto but he has failed to provide definitive proof. Craig and his ally Calvin Ayre believe that BSV will replace all other fake assets that aim for the bitcoin throne and that it will crush its rivals including Bitcoin Cash and BTC. In the manifesto, you could also read that Wright claims he created bitcoin in order to operate within the law, not to stimulate criminal activities such as money laundering. He then trashed crypto evangelists who claim that Bitcoin is 100% decentralized and therefore doesn’t need to follow rules. However, he made clear that they are living in delusion and they need to be woken up instantly:
‘’I designed Bitcoin to be a system that worked within the rules. Bitcoin needs to act within the rules. If it doesn’t, then the exchange and systems that allow people to use bitcoin act to stop it being widely used and disseminated and criminalise all of those in the system.’’
He also noted that every other monetary system such as BTC seeks to operate outside the rules, it becomes an outlaw system. Wright wrote:
‘’The majority of people want rules. They don’t want to fight in a world of uncertainty, and want to know the contract that they have conducted will remain valid not just now, but throughout the term of the exchange-for which we need rules.’’
Also, as explained in the latest cryptocurrency news, Wright thinks that crypto exchanges are criminal enterprises and that they are the ones responsible for money laundering.  He says that they will go out of business since ‘’crime always fails.’’ He even accused Bitfinex and Binance of lying to their customers because they are not decentralized. Wright explained that this is one of the reasons why bitcoin will disappear since many people tend to use decentralized exchanges so they can hide or launder money.

Stock Market Outperformed By Bitcoin By 10 Times This Year

Published

stock market
Stock market was outperformed by the number one cryptocurrency by 10 times since the start of 2019. According to the coming altcoin news, bitcoin’s price is up by 111 percent this year while stocks have an increase by 12 only. Morgan Creek Digital CEO Anthony Pompliano made clear that bitcoin did amazingly since the start of the year. Between April and May alone, the price of BTC added $2,000 to its market price. As e-Toro’s Mati Greenspan put it:
‘’At this point, a $200 move in the price of Bitcoin could easily lead to a move of $2,000.’’
The billionaire venture capitalist Tim Draper, spoke to CNBC and pointed out that the newly established brands which go public such as Uber, aren’t going to experience huge price growths. Instead, he expects that the stock market and its value will increase by 10 to 20 percent. Bitcoin bulls, on the other hand, don’t get a headache for the top-ranked cryptocurrency since BTC has so far remained close to the $8,000 price point despite the recent downturns. Mary Yusko, the Managing Director of Morgan Creek Capital Management, stated in an interview with one of the best cryptocurrency news sites and described BTC as a great investment portfolio diversifier. Many other commentators have stated previously that BTC will constitute at least one percent of every investment portfolio. Yusko also expressed his opinions similar to Pompliano’s saying that BTC is always a better investment than stocks. Back in 2019, Yusko spoke about the potential of the cryptocurrency saying it was the greatest wealth opportunity of our time. Bitcoin’s stock would be a great investment portfolio diversifier that could come into more significant prominence during a market decline. According to Yusko, the Federal Reserve and their comments on slashing interest rates show the awakening of the economic weakness. Central banks across the world are also on considering adding similar monetary policies. The history of price precedence shows that the rate cuts can lead to market weakness as it was in 2001 or 2008. For some people such as the bitcoin bull Max Keiser and Travis Kling, Bitcoin is a hedge against the fallback from the ‘’irresponsible’’ central bank policies.

Bitcoin Bull Max Keiser Predicts Bitcoin Will Reach $100,000

Published

bitcoin bull max keiser
Bitcoin bull Max Keiser, a popular broadcaster as well, is in the latest cryptocurrency news again after making a bold bitcoin price forecast of $100,000 telling the world it is time to accumulate the digital currency. The host of the Keiser Report on RT media channel noted that the major cryptocurrency is on its way to reaching the six-figure price. He doubled down on the target price earlier this month and now he suggested in an interview with the CNBC Crypto Trader that is only a matter of time when Bitcoin will reach its target:
‘’The timing is immaterial. It is still going to outperform every other asset you can possibly imagine owning over the next 5, 10, 15 years. Forget about timing. Timing is for people who think that ‘I’m going to wait and buy it at a better price.’’ That is a bad way to approach crypto. Stack Satoshis!’’
The reason why the Bitcoin Bull Max Keiser thinks that bitcoin will beat every other investment category is simple. So this means when an asset rises from $5,000 to $100,000 it is going to beat the returns of every other asset. He also believes that it is a bad idea to attempt timing the bitcoin’s rise. According to him, people should accumulate cryptocurrency rather than waiting for a better entry point. Keiser even recommended that people should not waste time into buying unnecessary gifts but instead should stack Satoshis. It is evident that he is a big-time bitcoin bull. He is also critical of the Federal Reserve and quantitative easing. He noted in the previous altcoin news that the FED’s inclination towards quantitative easing would lead to ‘’ money printing.’’ He also pointed out that the money printing problem can lead to hyperinflation and bitcoin will thrive in an environment like that.  His comparison to gold is not the first of the kind. Asset management company Morgan Creek Digital says that the price of the number one asset will hit a stunning $500,000 because it is a better investment than gold. Keiser believes that people should buy and hold BTC because people can enjoy the gains of more than 1,100 percent if the predictions come true.
