Overstock to Offer Bitcoin for Sale After Acquiring

Why I Think Wanchain Is An Incredible Long-term Investment

DISCLAIMER: I am in no way associated with the Wanchain team. Neither am I a financial advisor, nor is this meant to be financial advice. Whatever follows, just reflects my understanding of the project, and my personal opinion on its future outlook.
The objective of this post is to lay out, in simple terms, what Wanchain is, and why I think Wanchain’s native coin, Wancoin, could be one of the best cryptocurrencies to hold, not just through the coming months, but years.
So, let’s dive into it!
WHAT IS WANCHAIN?
Wanchain’s vision is rebuilding financial services. Wanchain is a global financial platform that connects, and exchanges value between different blockchains. Simply put, Wanchain is a ‘decentralized’ version of traditional banks in the current and future financial landscape.
WHY DO WE NEED WANCHAIN?
We are living in times of a major digital transformation, a time where digital assets are entering the financial ecosystem at an unprecedented rate. As the adoption of digital assets is increasing, we are witnessing an appreciation in the value of these assets. This necessitates the existence of a ‘digital bridge’ to transfer value, in the form of digital currencies and/or assets, between different blockchains.
HOW IS WANCHAIN ACHIEVING THIS?
Wanchain’s distributed ledger allows:
WHY I THINK WANCHAIN COULD BE ONE OF THE BEST LONG-TERM HOLDS IN THE COMING YEARS?
To put it in a few words, Wanchain is a very ambitious and potentially disruptive project, aiming to become a super financial market of the world. The project has some of the brightest minds in the business working behind it. Wanchain is solving a real world problem and has an immensely vital use case. I have complete confidence that Wanchain could easily be one of the top 15 cryptocurrencies by market cap by the end of 2018, and it would continue to grow even beyond that. Therefore, I believe holding Wancoins would be a great long-term investment.
Full disclosure: I am invested in Wanchain for the long-term, and I plan to buy more when Wancoin trading goes live.

Product on Schedule, Game of Coins, New Website - Swarm Newsletter Jan 8 Update

Happy New Year! The Swarm Team is starting off 2018 with a bang!
The markets are hot, our product is almost ripe, and we're feeling solid going into the new year. Two themes for us this week at Swarm were AI and the SWM token. The Distressed Real Estate fund that will launch with our platform uses AI to identify the optimal opportunities for purchase. Other funds in the pipeline use AI to make smarter trading decisions, learning from signals in trading and from places like influencer Twitter feeds. Where Swarm opens up opportunities once available only to a select few, AI is what really drives the economy - recommending and making decisions faster and better than any middleman could. And the Swarm token, SWM, is the the essential element which powers this whole ecosystem. Look for a blog post from us this week detailing our plan to maximize the utility of the SWM token. Hint - it's gonna be a gas!
Product On Schedule
Version 0.6 of the Swarm Platform was delivered this past Friday, a day ahead of schedule. Account creation, funding, review and allocation to individual funds are all coming together. Props to our friends on our Telegram channel for asking about v0.6, and sorry it was only an internal release! But we are excited to demo the platform on stage at the North America Bitcoin Conference in Miami next week and give a sneak peak! We remain on schedule for the public release of the MVP (v 0.61) of the platform on January 29.
Game of Coins @ CES
Philipp & Chris attended CES on Tuesday. Once a consumer electronics show to see the latest gadgets, CES has become a place where emerging technologies are discussed and announced. And yes, there are still the cool gadgets too. Brandchannel reached out to get Swarm's take on crypto @CES. Read the interview here!
On Tuesday, January 9th, Swarm CEO Philipp Pieper was on the Game of Coins panel at the CES Digital Money Forum. The panel is comprised of top industry leaders: Ripple's Brad Garlinghouse, Civic's Vinny Lingham, Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne, and Bill Shihara of Bittrex Exchange. Watch the panel on YouTube!
Our New Website
Hit refresh! The new Swarm.fund site goes live soon. We've redesigned the site with a look, feel, and content structure to support the launch of The Swarm Portal at the end of this month. Our core focus remains on the product, so some sections of the site are designed to grow over time, but we hope you like what we've done with the place, and we welcome your feedback on how it can be improved!

Sincerely,
Your friends at Swarm Fund

Merchants Accepting Bitcoin - Building Confidence First - The Adoption Rate Comes

It is clear the adoption rate of Bitcoin is improving but the reality is confidence lacks in Bitcoin as a currency. Headlines that read "BitPay Reveals it Paid ESPN Bitcoin for Bowl Game Sponsorship" are exciting to read and hear about but really, if ESPN spun the BTC to USD within minutes of accepting it, did they really accept Bitcoin or just the equivalent in USD? This is only news if ESPN was accepting Bitcoin and USING Bitcoin. If I was offered 1,000 Bitcoin for my $500,000.00 USD house I would simply call BitPay and say "If I give you 1,000 Bitcoin right now, how much will I get in USD?"... they will say.. "today, right now, at this minute, you will get USD $496,000.00" If I was offered a qty of Ferrari's for my house I would call the dealer and say, what are these worth today and will you pay me USD cash in my jeans for them right now?
Does this mean I accept Bitcoin? Does this mean Im a Bitcoin Merchant? The answer is obvious and that is the state of MOST of these transactions getting press.
There are exceptions like Overstock, Blockchain and a few diehards. Primarily the growth in Bitcoin will come from Merchants who ACCEPT and USE Bitcoin. The key here is USE. Using Bitcoin will expand the network, increase confidence and provide a more stable price.
The only companies benefiting from Bitcoin are exchanges, ATM operators and Trading Platforms.
Not a good foundation for growth.
If you know a company accepting Bitcoin list them on our Twitter feed and we will put them on our Twitter List for consumers and other Merchants to see. This Twitter real-time activity can foster growth as it allows Merchants to see other merchants by their PRODUCTS and not just a company name. This will lead to a Merchant using the Bitcoin they just accepted to purchase something from another Merchant immediately instead of doing the FIAT conversion.
Please have a look https://twitter.com/accept_bitcoin
Here is the format
PRODUCT : COMPANY NAME : URL : COUNTRY : @Twitter / Facebook - Accept #Bitcoin #BitcoinMerchants
Here is sample of one posted
Pub & Good Food : Durty Nellys Pub : durtynellys.ca : Canada : @DurtyNellysPub - Accept #Bitcoin #BitcoinMerchants
Post on this Twitter feed as many PRODUCTS and as often as you wish, the more the better.
I appreciate the input from the Reddit Community, Thanks and good luck to all.

Saw the price took a dive. Came here looking for the great news that caused it :)

My theory about the inverse price to good news relationship, for those who care, is that the infrastructure has progressed aggressively but is very one-sided. It's far far easier to get out of Bitcoin than into it. I saw another post mention something similar recently. But in this environment more merchants like Overstock and payment acceptance services like Bitpay growing incredibly fast simply puts downward pressure on the price. It's like having a small stream feed into a huge lake with a waterfall. And the only big thing to make the stream bigger is Circle. Which I hear is great!... but it's also not available. I think the Winklevoss ETF and Circle will be the next stage for price increase. But honestly I don't see why the price would turn around until getting into the currency is as easy as getting out.
Still crossing my fingers for open bazaar as well. If people sell for lower prices, not to mention the lack of fees, then the value of the currency will grow in response. The problem is that it needs a huge network to be valuable, and to get a huge network it needs to be valuable lol. Very much like the start of Bitcoin, OpenBazaar won't blow up overnight. BUT, if we all put one thing up for sell on OpenBazaar, maybe we can kick start the marketplace a little.
Tor integration wouldn't hurt either ;)
