Switzerland’s stock exchange is seeking a global lead in the trading of digital assets, announcing plans for new market infrastructure which will boost the country’s credentials as a “crypto nation”.

The platform being built by the Six exchange is designed to be used for cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, and other digital assets, and will be based mainly on Blockchain distributed ledger technology. As well as trading, the Six digital exchange will offer integrated post-transaction services such as deal settlement and asset custody.

just one more sign that Crypto is growing up in 2018.

Is anyone here building apps on the Eth network? Looking to learn more of the development side of crypto now that my Eth holdings are still in the toilet.
 
I sold a bunch of Stellar to buy something else a few days ago, now it's up 34% (24hrs) ...... fucking crypto eh.

It is nice to see green across the board though.

Stellar is being shilled extremely hard anywhere.
I think to good reason, the project seems solid, adoption by coinbase and first sharia crypto.
It's the ultimate sjw crypto and will make people good money.

However I won't be investing in it. Just like I didn't for Ripple.
The difference between Ripple and Stellar is mainly that one is a jew bankers' subversive instrument and the other is a jew-owned centralized fork of the former.

What coins are you invested in? I am long eth, req, wtc, omg....small amount in btc. However, my intuition is telling me that BTC as a digital gold...if that's the case a lot of room for growth. I haven't heard anything about ETF yet. Curious to hear about any other alts you see as long-term value positions. Thank you

My strategy is extremely long term hodling, so:

ETH and BTC are my stable ones.
3rd spot is currently LINK.
And the two "lottery tickets" are NIM and QASH. I like both projects and small caps, so let's see how it goes.

If I had to choose for a 3rd "big one" I would definitely go XMR or NEO.
For altcoins, i'd dump money in BAT, REQ, ZRX and others due to the great ideas, but ain't that rich.

Altcoins are a bit down today because of all the noise about BTC ETF. Not a bad idea to liquidate and pump on BTC again indeed.

It seems like a lot of alt coins are being left in the dust recently, why don't they seem to be tagging along like in the past?

Like RandomA says, are they being sold in favour BTC?

Over the last couple of days, ETH seems having gone its own way.
Is this finally the decoupling of ETH from BTC?
That would explain why the alts would follow ETH trends rather than BTC.

That would, indeed, be like a dream!
 
I was travelling a few weeks ago and I noticed many places had signs saying that they accept Dash, but they didn't accept any others. Is there some Dash PR team going around setting people up to accept Dash payments or what? The owner of the hotel is setup for it but he said he has never used it (only had it for a few days)
 
Spending crypto in retail doesn't make sense for a few reasons:

1. You want to replace it the second you sell because you don't want to miss out on future gains.

2. The tax liability. You are being hit with capital gains tax liability everytime you sell.


I don't like Dash. It's premined by the devs. It is fast tho and I'm guessing confirmation time was a big factor for using it
 
The alts are getting slaughtered in the last few days. Basically we are at the levels of the summer 2017...
I think that the hedge funds and Wall Street guys are waiting for the absolute bottom to enter massively and collect huge ROIs. Lets just remind that from the DotCom bubble there were survivors like Amazon, Apple and E-Bay. Buying coins of a successful blockchain project is now like buying Apple shares at 1$...
Surely not all them will succeed but I think that we are close to the bottom right now, many interesting projects are drastically oversold with market caps below 1B$. Some of them will still follow bitcoin which is showing resilience and a strong support around 6000$.

The only "stable" projects right now seem to be ETH & BTC.

If this bear market keeps going on for a couple of months, I believe the majority of projects not in the top 100 will be wiped out. In my opinion, this would be a great thing as the survivors would get more attention.

So, holding anything outside top 50 is super high risk in my opinion.
 
What do you guys think of Achain (ACT)? It's at 3.5 cents now and if it returns to the ATH of $1.37 that is quite the score. I bought a small amount a while back but have mostly ignored it.

ACT will most likely die during this bear market like 90%+ of crypto projects.
There will just be a hand of survivors.

There is a phrase "never catch a falling knife". I hope you didn't cut your hand.
