No-Coiner Before The BTC Halving
Are You a No-Coiner before the Halving? The upcoming Bitcoin halving is arguably the most talked about and anticipated cryptocurrency event of the year. While both large and small seasoned investors accumulate coins in the run-up to the event, newcomers to the crypto-sphere may be asking; "What in the world is the halving"? Let us break it down for you. Bitcoin was born out of ingenuity and resourcefulness. It's founders witnessed how inflation and corruption crippled global assets, so they put in place measures to protect Bitcoin from such calamities in the future. Therefore, to ensure the longevity of the coin and to curb inflation, they programmed block-halving events into Bitcoin's code (among other things). Block-halving refers to the number of the new bitcoins generated per block, each halving reduces the reward per block mined by 50% every four years or 210,000 blocks. In the first four years of Bitcoin's existence, 50 new BTC were issued every 10 minutes (approx). In the subsequent four years, 25 new BTC were issued every 10 mins, and so forth. This year, on May 12th 2020, the block-halving will decrease rewards from the current 12.5BTC to 6.25 BTC. This exponential depreciation in newly generated bitcoins has a profound effect upon the supply chain and the market as a whole. One of the most basic principles of macroeconomics states that lower supply with steady demand leads to higher prices. It comes as no surprise that this fundamental law has historically correlated to the cryptocurrency market as well, with the halving preceded by some of Bitcoin's largest bull runs. In the past, unprecedented gains were achieved in the months following block-halving events. The last halving in 2016 was followed by a record-breaking high of $20,000 per BTC and a break-through into mainstream media making Bitcoin a household name. Some experts are predicting Bitcoin will chart a similar uptrend following this year’s event. Seasoned crypto investors are cognizant of the impacts that added scarcity can have on the market and have begun speculatively accumulating BTC. Compounding this with an increase in media attention, Bitcoin prices have rallied sharply in the past few weeks leading up the halving event. With prices increasing by over 20% in the last week alone. Institutional interest and engagement in bitcoin and crypto are also at peak levels, creating a perfect environment for another post-halving rally. Notably, this is the first halving that is taking place amidst a global pandemic- COVID-19, which has shaken the global economy. With all the uncertainty, people around the world are witnessing the fall of central banks and are in search of alternatives like Bitcoin, which has proven its resilience and strength in comparison to Wall Street and other stock markets. As a result, the odds of Bitcoin setting new highs next year look stronger than ever. With all this being said, block-halving, cryptocurrency, and bitcoin may still seem like a foreign language to many traditional investors. And despite all the gains made in recent years, cryptocurrency and traditional investors still live in very separate worlds. Many traditional investors are apprehensive of Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency market and have yet to invest despite the huge upside potential. So if you are reading this, and currently own zero crypto assets, know that you are not alone. Fear not, there is still time to invest before the halving. We at Blockchain Academics would never suggest to go all-in on Bitcoin or to invest more than you can afford to lose. However, we are strong proponents of diversification and with such a tremendous opportunity impending, why not invest 1% of your portfolio into BTC? The Modern Portfolio theory, one of the most widely used models in the financial industry states that Investors are risk-averse, preferring a portfolio with a higher return for a low level of risk. Risk can be reduced through diversification. Since Bitcoin is not correlated to other assets classes in the market, by adding to a traditional portfolio you would increase your diversification and reduce the risk of the overall portfolio. Therefore, no-coiners, we invite you to take a leap of faith with us. There is no better time than today to diversify your portfolio and enjoy the post-halving ride.

What Is A Masternode, And Is It A Good Investment?
Many of you involved in the Cryptosphere or considering investing may have heard of the term Masternode and be wondering what a Masternode is? A node can simply be understood as a computer that plays a part in ensuring the integrity of a coin network. ... A Masternode is a crypto full node (computer wallet) that supports the network by hosting an entire copy of the coin's ledger in real time. In return, the Masternode will receive crypto coins as a reward. There are many Masternodes out there and as with any investment there are risks and these can be significant within the Masternode world. Since the beginning of 2018 there has been an explosion in the number of Masternode coins and unfortunately this has also attracted a fair number of scammers to this space. Be very cautious of any Masternode coin offering very high ROI percentages — anything in the 1,000% or above bracket really needs to be treated with caution and any coin that does not have a utility as well should be avoided in the early stages of it’s life.

Bitcoin Slides Back Below $10K Amid Quick Bearish Sell-Off With Biggest Daily Price Loss in Three Months
Bitcoin (BTC) took its biggest daily fall in three months on Wednesday, potentially trapping the bulls on the wrong side of the market. Prices were rejected near $10,300 during the U.S. trading hours and fell sharply by $800 to levels near $9,300 in the 30 minutes to 22:00 UTC before closing the day near $9,600 – down over 5.5 percent on the day. That's the biggest single-day drop since Nov. 21. That being said, despite the $800 fall, bitcoin's broader trend still remains bullish, with prices holding above the higher low of $9,075. We have seen this many times throughout the years of trading Bitcoin as this seems like a normal healthy pull-back. But must always watch out while trading on leverage as there had been over $126+million liquidated from this down fall! Thank you for listening to Everything Crypto podcast.

Craig Wright Now Claims Bitcoin Is His Intellectual Property, $40 Million Worth Of Bitcoin To Be Sold On Auction By The US Government - Bitcoin Breaking 10k Mark Once Again!
Craig Wright claimed that Bitcoin is his intellectual property and that all of those that infringed on it (i.e. Bitcoin Core developers) are about to be legally prosecuted. The self-proclaimed Satoshi Nakamoto outlined other equally ridiculous ideas in his blog post, including that all nodes and miners in the Bitcoin network are his personal agents. More than 4,000 BTC will be auctioned today by the United States Marshals Service (USMS). The procedure will happen with sealed bids where the highest bidder gets the bitcoins. All of the bitcoins included in the auction have been forfeited in different federal criminal, administrative, and civil cases. FCoin, a crypto exchange that adopted the controversial "trans-fee mining" model, has paused trading and withdrawal as it reveals a shortage of crypto assets worth up to $130 million. With all the crypto news going on in this space, Bitcoin has still managed to break the 10k mark once again! Bitcoin bulls have been strong and have been giving a great fight!

How The Next Bitcoin Halving Will Effect Price
The most popular crypto-centric question today is about the details of the infamous bitcoin mining halving. Every four years, Bitcoin’s block reward (earned by miners who successfully add new blocks to the end of BTC's blockchain) is cut in half. First, a reduction from 50 BTC to 25 BTC in November 2012, then the second halving shifted the pre-determined goalposts from 25 to 12.5 BTC in July 2016. Now, the anticipation of the next halving event will see the block rewards drop from 12 to 6.25 BTC in May 2020. This permanent change in the mining rewards system for newly-minted bitcoins is Satoshi's vision for designing a deflationary, digitally-scarce cryptoasset. The excitement is now building up about what effects the halving will have on bitcoin's price and the entire cryptocurrency market, knowing the 18th million BTC (85% of all) has already been issued to-date. The biggest question of all is, how will this effect Bitcoin with this years halving? What price will bitcoin be by the end of 2020? Thank you for listening to Everything Crypto podcast.
