So much has happened this week! We saw a capitulation point of bitcoin before bears took over and we saw the selling pressure push Bitcoin down toward the $9000USD mark then move back up above $9100USD So far it has been a stable hold, however we may see some more action within the coming weeks.submitted by IOTAbesomewhere to Gravychain [link] [comments]
Widespread scamming within the Twitter-sphere, Youtube and other platforms as Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies may seem like fair game. Cryptocurrencies providing big payouts for scammers without the ability for reversals of accounts. Remember if something seems too good to be true, do some research or just plain do not respond/believe it. Stay safe and careful with your funds!
On the brightside, there has been even more adoption of cryptocurrencies as rumours of Paypal utilising cryptocurrency has been confirmed as they are developing crypto capabilities. In addition to this we received exciting news at the start of this week about Binance partnering with Swipe (SXP) and offering a debit card to spend BNB, SXP, BTC and BUSD. ( I will be keeping a swift eye on BNB and Swipe as its utilisation as tokens has just increased 43 fold).
Positive news for the Bitcoin network as its hashrate reaches all time high which helps to secure the network further even though mining profits have dropped by 50% from the recent halving. If you didn't know already the last Bitcoin will be expected to be mined in 2140 with its difficulty ever increasing and each time securing the network further. Processing units will have to become faster, stronger and most importantly more cost effective to continue to entice miners for the block rewards and further renewable energy practices.
Furthermore we can see Central banks and countries discussing and developing Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC). Read more about it here https://www.investopedia.com/terms/c/central-bank-digital-currency-cbdc.asp and check out some of the developments in the world above. This shows the popularity and strong nature of cryptocurrencies. As the saying goes "If you cant beat them, JOIN them".
Overall, very solid week full of adoption, animation and anticipation. Another post next week for a weekly round up! See you then but in the mean time join us at our Gravychain Discord.

As the bitcoin halving approaches, crypto-mining ‘death spirals’ and miner capitulation have become prominent topics among digital currency enthusiasts.

The mining reward of the Bitcoin Cash network has been cut in half as a result of the new halving that took place successfully today.. The code has run as planned and from today, first among its forks, 6.25 BCH will be extracted at each block. On April 8th, 2020, the third halving when considering the parent chain and the first for Bitcoin Cash, took place at the 630,000th block. Bitcoin, the first and largest blockchain network out there, has had its mining difficulty reach near its all-time high within the latest adjustment for the network. When Satoshi Nakamoto created Bitcoin he made it so the block mining reward halves every 210,000 blocks. When the network was first launched, miners got 50 BTC for every block they found and the rewards halved for the first time on November 28, 2012. Then another 210,000 blocks later on July 9, 2016, the BTC block reward halved again from 25 BTC to the current 12.5 BTC reward. From this point ...

According to him, the miners could be induced to hold their Bitcoins and not sell them until they at least match the cost of production with the cost of sale. As for the price of Bitcoin, CZ says:
