Is CBOE – XBT future expiry causing today’s BTC drop?
10 months ago, I made this post: [https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/7lsig2/btc_is_doomed_and_its_time_to_move_on/](https://www.reddit.com/r/CryptoCurrency/comments/7lsig2/btc_is_doomed_and_its_time_to_move_on/)
The title was dramatic as hell, yet I believe I raised valid concerns and promoted discussion. At the time, I had no plans to build a currency. Around 6 months ago, that changed.
I wanted change, and realized I could enact it. Therefore, I decided to stop thinking and start working. I started building my own cryptocurrency, from the ground up. Its goals were to be feeless, instant, and decentralized. To accomplish this, I designed a brand new consensus algorithm called Merit Caching. Now, we have a site, and are preparing to launch a Developer Testnet in about a week!
I’d love to get the feedback of this wonderful community. Our site is [https://embercrypto.io](https://embercrypto.io), and it has links to our Twitter, Discord, Blog, and GitHub, If anyone has any comments or questions, I’d be happy to respond! Thank you!
I was on the phone to a friend of mine across the pond discussing debt. He is a large gold mine/claim owner. We both believe that bitcoin is the only true future safe haven. As debt increases people invest into gold. But can you confirm exactly how much gold there is?… No! So how do you value it?
This time it is a case with Marc O’Brien, who has held the position of CEO of Visa UK for six years (!!!) and changed it to the position of [CEO at Crypterium fintech company](https://crypterium.com/news/open/55c9c168-ea9c-4526-9959-1185bd04657e). With such stories I feel more confident during these dark times for crypto.
Here is a not-bad video with him explaining this change of work: [https://youtu.be/LXPHqJE0a1g](https://youtu.be/LXPHqJE0a1g)
Hoping for the bull market coming soon…
