It is a green top-20 day
All of the top-20 coins are showing positive gains between 1-4% in the past 24 hours, with XRP taking the lead as top performer of the day, as mentioned above.
While not in the top-20 tokens by market capitalization, the number 25 crypto coin NEM (XEM) has seen impressive gains of almost 14% over the past 24 hours to trade at $0.041 at press time.
The overall cryptocurrency market cap increased from $217.2 billion to $222.2 billion, with Bitcoin making up 66% of the total.

But you cannot turn back time. 1.5 million pet rocks were sold that does not make the buyers have anything more than a rock. When you buy a bitcoin you don't even have a pebble.

Proliferation amongst the intellectuals:

https://www.coindesk.com/fearing-usd...digital-dollar

“ In particular, Giancarlo and Gorfine highlighted the higher transaction speeds,
the ability to make micropayments, as well as increased security and transparency enabled by cryptocurrencies.”

I couldn’t have said it better myself!
No mention of criminals, ponzi, nor intrinsic value.
Just fast, cheap, and secure, without counterparties.

However, I have doubts that a crypto run by a government is going to be any better than a fiat run by a government.
Much better to have the coin be decentralized...and trust in math. Not politicians or bankers.
I know which coin I would invest in...and which one I would short!

I’m not the one trying to go back in time.
You are just afraid of the future...a chronophobic.

For those who want income, crypto can offer that too:

Can XYZ Bank & Trust match that APR?

Fear and hate are unbecoming.
Just research crypto and your BP will be much lower.

By Tony Sagami

As I pulled into a paid parking lot, I realized that I didn’t have any cash on me. No problem, there was a Bank of America Corp (NYSE: BAC) ATM right just down the block.

I had to wait behind a moron who took so long that by the time I got back to my car, the parking enforcement patrol strapped a parking boot to my tire.
50 minutes and $115 later, I got my car out of parking jail.

Arggggh!

I can’t wait for blockchain to make sure I never get waylaid by the parking lot tyrants ever again.

Blockchain?

That’s right; five of the largest automakers in the world — General Motors Company (NYSE: GM), Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F), Honda Motor Co Ltd. (NYSE: HMC), Renault and BMW — are field testing a blockchain-based vehicle identification system that will let drivers automatically pay parking fees and highway tolls without cash or credit/debit cards.

Hooray!

Here’s how it works: The blockchain-based system assigns an individual digital ID to every car as it rolls off a factory floor. This vehicle ID is then linked to whoever buys it. It includes information such as ownership authentication and bank accounts.

For toll roads, the vehicle ID makes it possible for fees to be automatically paid without the need for the specialized tags currently used in electronic toll collection systems.

It can also be used for parking lots, like the one that clipped me for $115.

Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative

This system is called the Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative. It’s built around a blockchain-secured system that tracks the car during its entire lifetime.

In addition to ownership and personal banking information, other data such as sales history, maintenance and repairs and recall information are stored in an immutable distributed ledger — AKA blockchain.
How about that! A blockchain log that records a car’s entire repair/maintenance history and that can also verify that all replacement parts are factory-authorized and not faulty black market parts.

What a wonderful tool for used car buyers!

Blockchain could also be used to track driving mileage and make it possible for low-mileage drivers to pay lower auto insurance rates.

Or it could make standing in line at the Department of Motor Vehicles to register and title a new car unnecessary since ownership could be transferred digitally. Blockchain technology would be able to verify and secure that sensitive data.

Or it could remotely unlock your car door when locked your keys inside.

A blockchain system would be especially useful for electric and hybrid automobiles. Car makers invested in blockchain want all public charging stations to be internet-enabled. This would allow data, as well as messages, to be automatically downloaded while plugged into a charger.

Heck, it may even be possible to pay for a Big Gulp, Slim Jim and six-pack of Bud Light with your car.

All these ambitious services are only possible with blockchain due to the security and reliability the tech offers. After all, nobody wants their personal banking and financial information floating around the airwaves for thieves to steal.

The distributed ledger technology of blockchain is what keeps your data safe.

Blockchain has such far-reaching potential that can sound more like science fiction than reality, including the support of self-driving cars.

People said the same thing about the personal computers, the internet, mobile phones and social media when they were first introduced. And I don’t have to tell you how much money you could have made by investing in the pioneers of those industries.

The same is even more true for blockchain stocks. So, jump on board ... NOW!

Remember...
authors are not experts in what they opine about.
Blockchain can record all those automotive details.
A blockchain cannot accomplish settlement.
Only a digital asset can do that.

So, in the above article whenever “Tony” discusses payment via blockchain,
think digital asset.

Secondly, there are very few “blockchain stocks”.
There is no company behind bitcoin or Ether.
Coin number 3 is XRP, but Ripple is not a public company.
Motley Fool recommends CME and SQ, but neither is a blockchain pure play.
The first derivative investment is directly purchasing crypto.

Default Bitcoin down $700 today.

Trading at $7,425.

If charts matter to anybody, bitcoin is through the support and the next significant support looks like $5,400 or so then $3,900.

Our Congress:
Killers of innovation.
Old white guys who are too lazy to learn about the technology.
That is why I am an expat in Asia, and not in Alabama.
Why Malta is thriving, and Minnesota is not.
The Facebook hearing is symbolic of the American entrepreneurial decline.

A 10% haircut is a great time to pick up a bargain.
The dot-com crash was a historical buying opportunity of quality.
Y2000 Microsoft dropped from $55 to $21.
The rumors of its death were greatly exaggerated.

Yes and it took Microsoft more than 15 years to exceed that previous high. There are two points: At $55 pre-dot com Microsoft was over priced. Two even then it was a valuable product that did something and has intrinsic value. Bitcoin is over priced and even in the cyber currency realm is nothing more than a novelty. Think of bitcoin as an Edsel.

Blockchain currencies likely have a future. Bitcoin does not. If you could see it or put it on display at a museum then it might will would become a collectors item. But it ain't worth that.

You need to run your con on your Asian friends.

I could never get behind this or any other electronic "currency". Too many negatives. If you can't hold it in your hand, you don't really have it. JMO, YMMV
