The rise of cryptocurrency is making a huge influence towards different businesses, companies or even simple individuals that supports the use of it in exchange of service, products, investments, etc. Number of users increases seemingly. However, beginners often get confused with the jargons, known only in the said network. In this article, I will be sharing basic terms that exists in cryptocurrency world: Cryptocurrency - is an internet-based, digital/virtual form of currency that is secured by cryptography (which makes it almost impossible to counterfeit) and operates independently from central bank. These include Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Etherium, Ripple, Litecoin, etc. Cryptography - process of securing communication and data in various electronic transactions (such as account name, account number, amount, digital signature, etc.) by converting plain texts to unintelligible texts and vice versa. It is also be utilized for user authentication. Blockchain - refers to a growing list of record or the digital information (blocks) stored in public database (chain). Wallet - or software wallet, is where you “store” your cryptocurrency. It is basically a digital program/system/site/app that store public and/or private keys used to track ownership and transactions of your cryptocurrency. Example: Coinbase, Trust Wallet, Exodus Crypto Wallet, Coins.ph, Binance Wallet, etc. Wallet Address - is a destination associated with the software wallet where a user sends and receives cryptocurrency. Usually include a long series of letters and numbers. Example: qz8wlltmrj83mj2waw6rgaw9wtzqywuc5s3xqm67g7 Fiat Money - a currency that has actual value maintained; established as money; and backed up by the government. Example: US Dollar, British Pound, Philippine Peso, Japanese Yen, Euro, etc. Altcoin - or "alts"; refers to any cryptocurrency other than Bitcoin. ATH (All-time High) - it's when a cryptocurrency breaks its previous record price. FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) - refers to the strong urge or need to purchase a cryptocurrency when the price starts increasing rapidly. Mining - process of validation of transactions such as computers trying to solve blocks in a blockchain. Thus rewarding new cryptocurrency to successful user (miner). However, mining scams are rampant nowadays. Miners are always reminded not to provide private keys, deposits, etc to avoid these frauds. FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt) - this is the greatest risk for investors; A state of mind that often influence when and how crypto-enthusiasts make trades, purchase or hold onto their coins thus affects greatly in the actual prices/convertion rate of cryptocurrency. DeFi - short term for "decentralized finance" which includes digital assets, protocols, smart contracts, and dApps; is a financial software built on the blockchain that can be pieced together like Money Legos. Etherium is the primary choice for DeFi Application. Stablecoin - refers to a class of cryptocurrency that attempts to stabilize coin prices, backed by reserve assets. Reserve Assets - financial assets denominated in foreign currencies, held by central banks; must be readily available for monetization and/or must be an external physical asset. Example: US Dollars, Gold. That's all for now, I hope this information might help especially beginners who still lack knowledge regarding these terms. Continue supporting #Cryptocurrency

Dear Pundians, July was definitely a whirlwind! Over the last month, we hit several milestones — from being Samsung’s first fintech app in its blockchain ecosystem to organizing meetups in five cities across the globe, and so much more in between. Allow us to walk you through the specifics. Product DevelopmentTelegram integration and crypto gift feature We are very excited to announce that X Wallet 2.0 is now available on Android and iOS. Using this version, you can integrate your Telegram contacts and send or receive crypto gifts. To make things easier, we set up an official Telegram chat group (https://t.me/pundixgift) for users (it’s currently the top Telegram chat according to combot.org). For more information, check out our feature. Integration support for Verifone X990 US-based Verifone welcomed Pundi X with the integration of its X990 with our XPOS module.

Good morning all. I'm technically not 1 month in crypto but I'm planning to do this every month just to give people an idea. Forgive me in advance, I am not a good storyteller so baka in the end nagsulat ako ng pagkahaba-haba, wala rin kayong nakuha. Ok. Started thinking with what to do with some funds. I decided between stocks at COL or get into crypto. I chose the latter kasi less papers at sa tingin ko less din ang processing time. Nakatulong din na hindi pa covered by law ang cryptocurrency (I think, hehe) so I got into crypto. This all started 2nd week of the month. I made an account in coins.ph. Verified until level 2 (Level 1 is 2,000 deposit a day while Level 2 is 50k a day). While in the process, I started putting money into it. My end goal was to place at least gradually investing $1000 by the end of the month in my other account. Made also an account in Binance. All funds in my coins.ph this is where it was converted to Bitcoin (BTC). This is like a marketplace where I buy other currency using BTC. When I started, state of crypto world was I'd considered good. BTC was hovering around 600k pesos at the time. Also started to lurk in CryptoCurrency. Funfact. This subreddit was one of the fastest growing subreddit last month. I'm a noob so I didn't research on the coins yet. I based my alt coins based on the most talked about and at the time I would consider affordable (Anything less than 5$, 1$) Divided all my BTC money to 3 different coins. After that I monitored my money by the hour, even by the minute. A coin changes its amount almost immediately. If you refresh everytime, it will change. It is that fast. 3rd week of the month was the hardest for me to look at. Almost every coin dropped in price. BTC dropped in the 500k range (I think it reached 490k not sure). I lost around $100-150 at the time on one day. But I just kept hodling on to my coins as that was everyone was suggesting and I was aware how quickly price changes in the world of crypto. After a few days, my money started slowly rising until 1 time I looked at it I made $100. So in a span of two weeks, from being 200 down I made 300 up in days. I knew then that this could be a good investment for me. As long as I picked out carefully the good coins. I'll be getting a good return. But as of this morning, when I looked st my profile. I invested $100, I'm hovering from $900-950. Note: There are 2 prices usually displayed your BTC value and its current conversion. If I based on BTC value, I think I got a 5-10% increase in that but BTC right now but I looked at BTC now and it's at 540k hence the drop. Tldr: 400 -> 300 -> 250 -> 400 -> (add 200) 600 -> (add 400) -> 1000 -> 1100 -> 900. As I remember it. Some parts are missing. That's all. Thank you. Note: Invest if you think you can handle how things quickly changes. Otherwise, don't. 😜
What is Bitcoin? Bitcoin is a form of digital currency, created and held electronically. No one controls it. Bitcoins aren’t printed, like dollars or euros – they’re produced by people, and increasingly businesses, running computers all around the world, using software that solves mathematical problems. It’s the first example of a growing category of money known as cryptocurrency. It was created in 2009 by a software developer called Satoshi Nakamoto. The idea was to produce a currency independent of any central authority, transferable electronically, more or less instantly, with very low transaction fees. This is a video that explains it better: Bitcoin Why are a lot of people talking about it? Bitcoin's price skyrocketed in 2017. From around $1,000 per Bitcoin, it is now $11,000. Alternative coins (or altcoins), like Ethereum and Litecoin, went up by as much 1000% this year as well. I have a lot of friends who became millionaires because of Bitcoin just this year. How do I buy Bitcoin?
Download the coins.ph app from the app store. If you find this guide useful, you can use my referral code. here If you finish the level 2 verification, we'll both get 50 pesos.
From there, you can load money to your account thru 7-11 outlets or thru banks. You can convert the Peso you deposited into Bitcoin in your account. Note that the price of Bitcoin fluctuates throughout the day, so it is best to convert when the price of Bitcoin is low. If you want to withdraw your money from the app, you can do so via Banks, GCash, etc.
There are also similar apps, like Abra, or physical stores like Moneybees, but I have no experience using them. I believe you can buy Ethereum in Abra and Moneybees. How do I earn money? You can keep your Bitcoin in your coins.ph account, HOLD, and wait for the price of Bitcoin to go up. There was this person who posted here in reddit about a few weeks ago that he earned 50k from an initial investment of 35k. I started a few months ago and earned double my initial investment. If you want to trade, you can transfer your bitcoin from your coins.ph account, to exchanges like Bittrex, Binance, or Poloniex. There are other exchanges, but these are the ones I'm familiar with. Once you've transferred your Bitcoin there, you can buy other coins. Trading is very risky and I do not recommend it if you do not have prior experience. You can lose a lot of money overnight or even in a few minutes. https://poloniex.comhttps://www.binance.comhttps://www.bittrex.comhttps://www.coinbase.com Stocks, or Bitcoin? The returns if you invest in Bitcoin are huge, potentially. The coins are limited in number, it is becoming harder and harder to mine, and with more people becoming aware of Bitcoin and wanting to invest in it, it will drive the price up. Bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies can go up by 10%, 20% or even 100% or higher overnight. However, you can lose just as much. The prices are very volatile that one good or bad news can affect its price by a lot. Also, people argue that Bitcoin has no intrinsic value. For stocks, the value is determined by the performance of the company, its assets, earnings, etc. Bitcoin doesn't have that. The price is determined by the demand for it. The banks hate Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies for good measure and have been calling it a "bubble". I'd still say that diversifying your investment is still the best way to go. Bitcoin's price is too high. What can I do? You don't have to buy 1 bitcoin for 550,000 pesos. You can buy .5, .05, or even .001 Bitcoin. You can also buy other cryptocurrencies. The top cryptocurrencies after Bitcoin are: Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Ripple, IOTA, Dash, Litecoin, Bitcoin Gold, NEO, etc. If you want to own other coins, transfer your Btc to an exchange, and you can buy the other coins there. You can track your monies by downloading the Blockfolio app. Trust me, there's no better feeling than waking up in the morning to see that you've earned a lot of money while sleeping. You can check them by going to https://coinmarketcap.com. What is Mining? Imagine depositing money in a bank. The bank's database stores the information that you deposited the money and how much you have. In Bitcoin, People are sending bitcoins to each other over the bitcoin network all the time, but unless someone keeps a record of all these transactions, no-one would be able to keep track of who had paid what. The bitcoin network deals with this by collecting all of the transactions made during a set period into a list, called a block. It’s the miners’ job to confirm those transactions, and write them into a general ledger. They are rewarded with the transaction fees and coins. I personally don't mine, but from what I've gathered, a "mining rig" costs between 100k-180k pesos depending on the number of video cards. The average ROI is around 4-6 months.
