Bitcoin has had a rollercoaster 12 months to date. One year ago, cryptocurrency fever was sweeping the land. This is in stark contrast to the market sentiment of today which has seen bitcoins value fall further. Now below $3,500, analysts are uncertain over the future in Bitcoin trading. It is important though to examine the bigger picture, taking into account not just the current position, but the future possibilities and other Bitcoin trading options such as trading CFDs on forex platforms like TradeFW.com.

The Current Bitcoin Market

The bitcoin market at the present moment is in a noticeable downward trend. This has been heavily influenced by the mass market sentiment which has displayed consistently negative signs. That said, many professionals within the industry, and certainly a trusted bitcoin broker such as TradeFW, have firm faith in the markets capability to rebound from its current position. Presently, the market is experiencing a low below $3,500, something which bitcoin trading sites have not seen in 12-months. That said, for those who have recently joined the industry and learned how to trade bitcoin, there are other opportunities. These opportunities currently reside with bitcoin options trading, or CFDs.

Bitcoins Short and Long-Term Future

Bitcoins short-term future may well see a further slump prior to any bounce back, however if you are desiring to open a bitcoin account, this should not hold you back.

If you are wondering where to trade bitcoin in the current market, this may well be the best choice, since, with CFD trading, you can easily capitalize even in times of a slump in the market. As for the long-term future of Bitcoin, this would still appear to be bright. We should remember that in the bigger market picture, the current price level is still comparatively very strong, and the cryptocurrency remains in its number one position. The long-term currency future is further bolstered by the emergence of new trading opportunities such as CFDs and Options trading on Bitcoin. At the present moment, it may be a very advisable strategy to partner with a strong bitcoin trading platform which offers some of these more diversified financial trading instruments, and attempt to utilize any market conditions to your benefit. The best bitcoin trading platforms will certainly have extensive learning resources available. Continuing to utilize these resources to further learn about bitcoin is a surefire way to help improve your trading skill no matter the market conditions.

Cons

Gold Backed Crypto Exchange Offers Safe Haven for Crypto Investors

GOLD.IO Seeks to Develop Decentralised & Self-Regulating Community Exchange Turbulence in the global markets is nothing new but the cryptocurrency community has faced an unprecedented 18-month period of flux. The need for a fully decentralised, stable, self-regulated and community-led exchange that can offer investor confidence amidst a chaotic global economy has never been stronger.   Setting the Gold Standard with Crypto’s Founding Principles. With a scalable inter-blockchain and decentralised exchange the GOLD.IO platform is not only self-regulated and led by its stakeholders, but asset linked – offering exchange investors unrivaled portfolio security.   Gold has always set the market standard and has benchmarked traditional finance for centuries, so why should the cryptocurrency market be any different? As a commodity, it has weathered many a financial storm and continues to do so today. Aside from a little price volatility it has consistently retained its market value, and with an unstable geopolitical, crypto-economic outlook the precious metal can provide a safe port for crypto assets. In short, a gold-linked and backed exchange offers not only security of your assets but a piece of mind – the world has been through tougher times than we face today, but gold has always survived the course.   GOLD.IO – Providing a Defensive Asset Protection to your Investments. With a team of over 30 experienced developers, GOLD.IO has simply put a sister chain of the EOS Project which has the mission of creating a Decentralised Exchange (DEX) of smooth inter-block communications that not only eliminates persistent market influences but has the unique benefit of being backed by a commodity asset class. Combining the proven power of gold as well as a growing community that is not only self-regulated but also stakeholder-led – GOLD.IO is also seeking to develop a fully-fledged Decentralised Autonomous Community (DAC) based on the founding principles of the blockchain. The DAC will serve as regulatory oversight of the exchange with all stakeholders enjoying full voting rights, a say over project development and more importantly the ability to define their profits.   Gold Backed Tokenomics Offers Trading Efficiency & High Liquidity. With global stock volatility at best and a downward trajectory at worse – according to Goldman Sachs the markets are gripped with a fear of what may come in the coming year, a gold-linked exchange, with inherently high liquidity can part-mitigate investor risk. With no independent or fair exchange yet to provide what GOLD.IO can, the benefits of the platform as a market leader are clear but the real magic comes with the EOISO blockchain system itself – it eliminates third-party manipulation and offers a unique architecture to ensure users remain the custodian of their gold. Join The Power of GOLD!   Join the Gold Renaissance Today! For all media and industry queries, please contact us via our website or chat to us today – we are keen to hear from you!

CoinPoker Invites Cryptography and Poker Experts to Debunk their Transparent Card Shuffling Software and Take Home 1,000,000 CHP

Bug Bounty CoinPoker, a cryptocurrency based online poker platform, is pleased to announce the official release of its open source random number generation software that allows the players to engage in card shuffling and verify the fairness of hands. The launch of this software promises to be a giant step forward for the industry, and CoinPoker is offering a 1,000,000 CHP Bug Bounty to the testers for identifying flaws in the software. Prior to the inception of CoinPoker in 2017, transparency and security of online poker games were serious concerns for the industry. Card shuffling software and random number generators have been the objects of scrutiny from suspicious players, and building trust has never been easy for most of the poker sites. This is partially because of the fact that unfair practices and cheating takes place in even the biggest of poker rooms on the market. From PlanetPoker, the first market leader in online poker, through to Full Tilt, incidents of unethical practices have surfaced out about numerous sites.  With transparency being the industry’s Achilles’ heel, CoinPoker was created to deliver unprecedented security and transparency. The decentralized random number generation (RNG) software from CoinPoker makes use of input from all players at a table to shuffle the deck, giving them the power to prove the fairness of the shuffle. Utilizing the same cryptographic hash function used on the Ethereum network (KECCAK-256), CoinPoker has developed a robust RNG module that can’t be reverse engineered.  As a result, it is possible to safely disclose information about the order of the deck, and boost transparency in online poker. Players can verify the randomness of the deck, as well as see the undealt cards after the hands are completed. The advent of this RNG module brings about a paradigm shift in the industry because unlike the traditional online poker rooms with closed systems, it allows the players to participate in the shuffling process. CoinPoker is delighted to invite software experts and cryptography enthusiast to test the new RNG software for bugs. If the card shuffler can be proven wrong, the reward is 1,000,000 CHP tokens, the proprietary utility token of the platform.  The objective of this bounty program is to combat any doubts about the software’s integrity, and eliminate any errors, should they exist, in the process. The Bug Bounty goes to anyone who can fulfill one of the following conditions.
  • Prove that players don't have an equal possibility to participate in the card deck shuffling
  • Prove that player cannot impact card deck shuffling with following rules:
  • Prove the existence of a seed that enhances the probability of winning.
  • Decode the initial deck's cards from card hashes at the beginning of a hand.
For more details, please visit CoinPoker’s official Bug Bounty page, or contact their support team via Telegram or email. About CoinPoker: Developed by an ambitious team of poker lovers, CoinPoker is a revolutionary platform that uses blockchain technology to address key issues in the online poker industry. The platform uses its proprietary CHP tokens to ensure quick and secure transactions. The coin is also used for all CoinPoker deposits, withdrawals, and bets in between.
