From Zero To Crypto Billionaire In Under A Year: Meet The ...

Where’s the videos showcasing Nano

I first heard about bitcoin from way back when my friend was using it to purchase weed, then i watched it for a good year or 2 before its big move mid to late 2016 when literally everyone was talking about it (even the IT guy that visits about once a year mentioned it and my 50 year old boss was suddenly very interested). I never intended to buy any crypto until i seen an article on yahoo about IOTA, how it addressed all of bitcoins problems and how it was rising in value fast. This got me excited because i thought i’d missed the boat with bitcoin from a huge growth potential point of view but a new better coin grabbed my attention and interested me from a greed perspective. I quickly sold IOTA when i heard their wallet didn’t work and found XRB (someone was shilling it on twitter when i searched for IOTA). There i bought it at approx $1 and have watched it all the way up and all the way back down. Through bitgrail, rebranding, Binance, bear market, improvements, i’ve watched it. Im not even mid 20’s yet and i’m either spending my Nano when its buying me a house or i’m not selling all of my stack until i’m retiring off it.
Anyhow back to the point, i first invested in crypto because i knew of all the problems of bitcoin and found an article on a credible website promoting an alternative. We need to start reaching out to those writing articles and suggesting they look into Nano. Trust me articles that display a new crypto that will make people rich are clickbait gold so writers are incentivised to write about Nano. I was trying to find the video where Nano is demonstrated when purchasing (i think it was coffee) on youtube and i cant find it. We need to get a stockpile of videos like that on youtube so when people google nano the top result is real life use. We need to actually try to get Nano mentioned where normal people will read it because Bitcoin isn’t the solution to payments Nano is.

A Lost Gem In A Sea Of Shitcoins

What’s up everyone!
 
Yeah, it’s another one of “those”. But honestly, after being in the game for long enough, you end up developing an eye for the good coins. Not the “good” ones, the GOOD ones. Believe it or not, research and common sense is the name of the game!
 
A little bit more about me: I come from a business & logistics management background. I started investing in cryptocurrencies and trading a little more than six months ago. As a person, I am very detail oriented and I’ve been researching all kinds of cryptos, for hours a day, for the past six months. The more I researched, the more I learned, the more I became hungry for knowledge, and therefore the more i researched. From trading to cryptocurrency basics, their economics, their political implications, the technology revolution they represent, the human psychology aspect as well as emotional trading behaviours (FOMO, FODO, etc.), all of it!
 
I’ve purchased Ethereum at 150$ (when I first started in crypto). Then NEO back when it was still AntShares and trading under 3$. Gas (Antcoin back then) at 30c, OMG when it was sub-1$, and ETP at exactly a dollar (selling it later at 5$). This was all before I even knew how to do a basic margin trade & was still in the process of learning about crypto (and while tether still had a “reasonable” market cap! LOL)
 
My approach is pretty simple when it comes to crypto. I split coins into seven main categories:
 
-Store of Value (BTC)
-Payment (DASH, BCH, LTC)
-Pure Anonymity and/or Evil Stuff (XMR)
-Platform/platform’ish (ETH, NEO, LISK, CARDANO, ETP, Iota, Factom and the likes)
-Shitcoins (99% of ERC20 tokens)
-Absolute Shitcoins (Boolberry, Embercoin et al.)
-Fee Split / Dividend Coins
 
That last category is my favorite. While I do strongly believe in diversification (10% store of value, 10% payment, 5% anonymity, 25% platform in my case), I always have a “lean” towards coins that make business sense. Coins that derive their value directly from the amount of usage the platform gets (Factom, for example). Coins such as NEO, BNB, Kucoin, Coss, ICN, TenX and the likes, basically coins that either have a direct “dividend-paying” property (NEO generating gas, Kucoin/Coss awarding holders with a % of the exchange’s trading fees) or an indirect “dividend paying” property such as BNB, ICN, TenX using quarterly profits to buy back their own coins and burn them, thus raising the value of the rest of the coins in circulation over time.
 
Now let’s look at market caps of these direct and indirect “dividend” coins.
 
Neo: 2.3B
TenX: 246M
Binance: 200M
Iconomi: 155M
Kucoin: 44M (68M at ath, not too long ago)
Coss: 5M
 
You see that odd one there with only 5M market cap? Yeah. That’s the great buy right now. That’s the x10, x20 or even x30 that most people haven’t realized yet. That’s also the “dividend coin” you can scoop a ton of while it’s on the cheap, and make massive recurring revenue from as the exchange solidifies and evolves.
 
What is COSS? COSS stands for Crypto One Stop Solution. They’re a Singapore based cryptocurrency exchange with an amazing team that’s currently expanding. They aim at becoming the “One Stop” solution for crypto, meaning A) an exchange, B) a payment gateway for merchants to accept crypto payments, and probably sometime in the future C) crypto debit/credit cards. They offer their own coin (COSS coin), and holders of this coin receive 50% of the trading fees generated by the exchange (more on this later).
 
Now, what a lot of people still don’t realize in crypto, you don’t invest in the bigger market cap coins expecting to make a killing (“the moonshot”). Sure, they’ll bring you nice long term growth as the whole market matures, and that’s where you want to diversify and solidify your portfolio, solid coins with a purpose. But what if you want more thrill? An actual opportunity to “moon”? You find a project that makes business sense, that has at least a working product, and a good team. Buying NEO at 2.5B market cap? You missed the boat, it was a dollar a few months ago and already went x60 (“mooned”), and now stabilized at roughly x38. OMG had it’s x10-15 already. BNB as well. Their market caps are big, and a lot of buying needs to happen to even double in price.
 
Antshares (NEO) back then was a steal at 1, 2 and 3$. It was a huge risk, with huge rewards. They didn’t even have a product other than their blockchain. No dApp running or even being built on it, no english resources to even figure out how to code on it and deploy a smart contract, no marketing, hell we didn’t even know if Da Hongfei was still alive. All it was is a Chinese based smart contract platform, with an innovative dBFT concensus algorithm. It was a 100M market cap coin that early adopters believed in, and essentially invested in when it was not much more than a website and a blockchain. Look where it’s at now, with more than a dozen dApps being built on it, a solid team of roughly 10 devs, with the NEO council also funding City of Zion (team of 20+ NEO devs). NEO has grown into an incredible community, and is now launching coding dApp contests left and right, with the latest one in partnership with Microsoft china & offering half a million dollar’s worth in prizes.
 
NEO holders get rewarded with GAS on a daily basis. When NEO gets further adoption, all fees such as registering an asset, deploying a contract, changing an asset, etc. will be redistributed to NEO holders as well on a pro rated basis. Only transaction fees are not, as those will go out to MasterNodes. If you got yourself a thousand NEO’s back when they were a dollar or two a piece, you’re now generating 7 gas per month. That’s roughly 161$ USD per month, on a recurring basis, at current gas prices, out of a 1000$ investment. That’s a whopping 16.1% PER MONTH on original investment, and not even counting the fact that you pretty much made 37000$ profit on the NEO’s themselves. Today? Well, you gotta dish out 38000$ to buy a thousand neos and make 161$ per month, basically bringing you 0.4% per month on original investment.
 
Same with bitcoin. Early adopters that got it at pennies. It just hit $10K USD a piece. For every 30 cent spent purchasing bitcoin in 2009, you’d have $10K USD in the bank account. Invested 3$? 100K. Invested 30$? 1M.
 
Ethereum? From a dollar to half a grand now.
 
Moral of the story? Early adoption pays off. History repeats itself, and it will continue to do so. Bitcoin was digital money for nerds, ethereum was a cool project that nobody really gave a crap about until they got EEA which showed credibility (early adopters of eth had a great vision, I’ll give them that!). Neo was chinese vaporware. What do they all have in common? Their.Early. Adopters. Made. A. Killing.
 
Look where they stand now. Look where a lot of coins stand now. Even a lot of ERC20 tokens that don’t even really have a reason to exist have market caps over 100M. And for what? They don’t reward you with anything other than price increasing because more people buy (greater fool theory)? They don’t reward you with dividends from the project/platform itself? Their value isn’t derived directly from the amount of usage it gets (a la Factom, PaulSnow you genius.)? They still don’t even have a minimum viable product to show? When you ask yourself why does it need a coin, and the answer is either “uhh…” or “oh it grants you voting rights” (that nobody gives a crap about, let’s be honest), you should reconsider your investment strategy. Cause I can tell you a lot of people don’t know what the hell they’re doing, and they’d be better off diversifying in the top 5 or 10 coins and holding than investing in the shitcoinfest that crypto has become.
 
And that’s why COSS is a pretty buy right now. You’re investing in a platform that’s already up and running, not a whitepaper or vaporware. Hell even Eth and Neo were riskier investments for early adopters. Let’s go over the cons first:
 
It’s ugly. The UI sucks.
It doesn’t have API’s yet, meaning there’s no bots to create liquidity, and therefore low volume.
It’s been fudded to death by KuCoin shills (and their referral links you’ve seen everywhere a month ago).
Charts are horrible
 
That’s about it. Whenever you read up about coss, those are the cons you’ll find. But what about the pros? Well, all of this is in the process of being fixed, as we speak.
 
Singapore has lax laws about cryptocurrencies and issued a statement it does not feel the need to regulate them.
It’s securing exclusive ICO’s already despite being a tiny exchange, and has mentioned being able to secure from 4 to 6 per month.
The team listens to the community’s feedback and takes it seriously. This is Gold. One of the first things they were criticized about was trying to do too many things at once (an exchange, a payment gateway, a full one-stop solution for crypto, etc.) and they’ve taken the community’s advice and decided to focus solely on the exchange for now and build it properly, before branching out to the rest. “Better excel at one thing and build from there, than be mediocre at multiple things at once”
Also following community feedback, they are implementing trading promotions “a la Binance”.
Part of the total supply of COSS tokens will be donated to charities (the community votes to who they go). First of all, that’s just plain nice. Secondly, I find it pretty damn cool that we donate this for good causes, and they basically keep “generating” income from it. It’s basically like a “perpetual donation” on behalf of COSS and all of its users, and definitely will make a lot of people feel good about using the exchange. Thirdly, this pretty much guarantees millions of COSS tokens are going to be in perpetual “HODL” mode, essentially taking them off the market.
They will be implementing a FIAT gateway sooner than later. We all know FIAT gateways are game changers.
They are constantly hiring. The team growing is definitely a good sign.
They are revamping the overall UI and charts, once again following the community’s advice, and the proposed new look is fantastic! Check it out here, as well as other great announcements: https://medium.com/@runeevensen/coss-io-7379b7628d93 EDIT: It has been brought to my attention that there is a UI upgrade scheduled for tomorrow (Dec. 3rd), although it isn't clear if it's a minor one or the actual major overhaul, might wanna keep an eye out on that!
They are upgrading the matching engine and releasing API’s soon to allow bots to create liquidity and significantly raise the trading volume.
Unlike KuCoin, the revenue split (COSS token holders) will always receive 50% of the fees, whereas kucoin will start decreasing it in 4-6months and it will bottom out at 10-15%
The revenue split from trading fees is controlled by a DAO, meaning the COSS team cannot arbitrarily decide to change it later down the line, unlike KuCoin where the control over the fee split is centralized and they decrease it as they please.
The DAO model also avoids it being labeled a security. First of all, those aren’t really “dividends” as dividends would require them to calculate income minus expenses to determine profit, and then distribute this profit to shareholders, and obviously that’s a legal nightmare. With the DAO model, you don’t get a percentage of the “profits”, you get a revenue split from the exchange fees, and it’s done by clicking a “distribute” button which makes a call to the smart contract and distributes your coins. COSS itself is not giving you anything
COSS is still in Beta. It has a tiny market cap. Now’s the time to pick it up, not when it’s out of beta and has become successful, or you’ll be in another Antshares/NEO situation. A ridiculously small move from 5M to 50M in Mcap and that’s x10, a move from 5M to 150M (still under binance levels) and that’s x30.
In the long run, COSS aims to be more than just an exchange. Holders of the token, who currently get 50% of the exchange’s trading fees, will also get 50% of other fees charged from coss. This includes their eventual payment gateway. Merchants around the world wishing to accept crypto payments will be able to use COSS’s gateway and COSS will charge a 0.75% fee per transaction. We, as COSS holders, also get 50% of that. You believe crypto is the future and going mainstream? Well your COSS will entitle you to the revenue generated by tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of businesses accepting crypto payments via COSS Point-Of-Sale.
COSS also mentioned that all other COSS “fee generating” products to come will all be subject to the same DAO/50% split. Logically, If they have 1) The trading platform, and 2) the payment gateway, then the third step is solving the problem of spending the crypto in places that don’t accept direct crypto payment, AKA a crypto credit/debit card. Well, guess what? Users of such cards will be charged a small fee as well when their crypto is being converted to fiat in real time for payment at a gas station. We as COSS holders are, again, getting 50% of that fee. As you can see, this is a coin that makes business sense to invest in. Unless you really, reaaaaaally care about a coin being the “Future of decentralized prediction markets” or “the future of decentralized dating” or the “decentralized gambling coin” and whatnot.
Smart money is smart. It's only a matter of time before savvy investors discover this coin.
 
What do the dividends look like (credits to lickmypussy28):
 
Here’s an excel showing the Yearly %ROI based on the COSS exchange volume and your COSS token buy-in price: https://i.imgur.com/XKjjCbZ.png
 
Here’s another one showing how much you’d make in USD per year based on how many COSS tokens you own, again all relative to the volume on the left: https://i.imgur.com/p15DKAr.png
 
Lastly, here’s another showing the exact same as above but on a weekly basis: https://i.imgur.com/ezp5FCV.png
 
ALTHOUGH, keep in mind, the calculations above take into consideration an average trading fee of 0.2% and while this fee is accurate right now, it will most likely average 0.1% once API’s are released and liquidity/market maker bots start operating on the platform. Also, the calculations above do NOT take into consideration that in 4 years from now, there will be 200M (hard cap) COSS tokens on the market. HOWEVER, these calculations also do not take into consideration that by then, COSS will have a fully up and running payment gateway, crypto credit cards, and other revenue-generating products such as a crowdfunding platform, smart contract deployment platform, etc. that are also generating revenue for COSS holders.
 
All in all, if all goes as planned, the payment gateway/cards/other products will negate the additional COSS tokens released in the market as well as the average trading fee of 0.1%, and therefore the numbers presented in the excel docs will remain sensibly the same. Also, if crypto really takes off in the mainstream, then the revenue split to coss holders from the payment gateway & credit card spending could very well double, triple or quadruple all the numbers you’re seeing in these excel sheets, and that’s on the low end. Remember, the exchange only charges 0.2% (0.1% average once we have bots) out of which we get half, but the payment gateway on the other hand charges a flat 0.75% (7.5x the what the exchange’s fee), out of which COSS holders get half. This could be a massive revenue driver, easily surpassing the exchange itself, and honestly if at that point in time this coin is NOT valued at 3B+ (I mean, even ethereum classic is over that right now..), then I’ll just give up on the whole notion of logical thinking.
 
Quick example, assuming in 4 years 50M in gateway processing daily (18B yearly), 0.375% of that would be 187.5K USD daily for COSS holders. With 200M Coss tokens total supply, if you hold 10K coss you’d generate 9.375$ per day (65$ per week, 282$/mo.), and that’s purely from the gateway (totally excluding the exchange revenue, crowdfunding revenue, credit card revenue, etc.).
 
If you have 100K coss you’d generate 93.7$/day, 650$/week, 2820$/mo, again purely from the gateway.
 
If you’d rather assume more conservative figures (let’s say 25M in daily gateway processing on COSS, all around the globe, or 9B yearly), then simply divide these figures by half. If you wanna go balls to the walls, double them (100M daily, 36B yearly). Play around, have fun with the numbers! To keep things in perspective, square has processed 50B’s worth of transactions in 2016. Therefore I believe using 9B, 18B and 36B for our calculations isn’t too far fetched, and actually pretty reasonable.
 
Anyway, to sum this up, no matter how you look at it, COSS is an extremely promising project with huge potential, and actually has working math (and a working beta!) behind it. It’s only a matter of a month or two before they’re out of their Beta, have upgrades to their UI and engine, and start really growing from there. The team listens to the community, which is super important, and they’re working on a multitude of revenue streams, out of which not only them, but all coss holders will benefit from, fifty fifty.
 
Their crowdfunding platform will be a competitor to indiegogo, gofundme, kickstarter, and they’ll have a small percentage fee (50% of which goes to COSS holders). The crypto Point-Of-Sale will be a competitor to Square and the likes (50% revenue to COSS holders). The crypto credit card (also 50% revenue to COSS holders). It is truely an admirable project. Shovel manufacturers made a killing during the gold rush, and COSS is positioning itself as the shovel manufacturer in the crypto adoption gold rush. This is a coin that makes sense to invest in, it is ultra tangible, and will give greater returns than any type of “decentralized [insert function here]” type coins.
 
On a personal note: Honestly, I believe this is the proper way to ICO, by NOT giving people worthless tokens that only go up in value due to speculation (looking at you, 99% of ERC20 tokens). Let investors guide you, let them reap 50% of the rewards as THEY are the ones funding you. This’ll keep the investors interested in the project, and every single one of them will have a direct incentive to vouch for your product. It’s only right for the investors to get rewarded with something tangible, I’d take that any day over a speculative shitcoin who’s only purpose was to put money in the project’s founders pockets
 
Oh, and cherry on the sundae: they are planning on launching massive marketing campaigns as soon as UI and trading engine are ready, Q1 2018, as you can see in Rune’s Nov 27th update. I suggest you read it, it puts us up to date on a lot of exciting new things: https://medium.com/@runeevensen/coss-io-update-november-27th-fa74f1237062
 
Quoted directly from said link: “For those that are most interested in discussions regarding the trading price of COSS. Please have in mind that when we entered our token sale, our clear sales message was a 3–5 year road-map, and not a 3–5 months pump and dump. We are a small team, doing our utmost to deliver and all we ask is for you to continue to give us feedback and also for you to give us some time to deliver. *That being said. We still aim to be out of BETA as soon as possible with a new engine for the exchange in Q1 2018. New UI should be in place well before that.** Once we feel we have this in place we will roll out massive marketing campaigns to attract users and increased volume. So although we have a 3–5 year road-map ahead, you should expect to see 2018 being “our year”. The 3–5 year plan is more on the complete roadmap when we proudly can call ourselves a one-stop solution. For now it is all about the exchange, and there we will see rapid changes over the coming weeks/months.”*
 
All in all, i’d like to thank the COSS team for actually caring about their investors, keeping them in the loop, listening to their feedback and giving them a unique and tangible opportunity. I’d also like to thank all the other COSS investors, who see a huge potential in this project and support the team, and lastly, all of you crypto-heads for reading through!
 
Happy hodling, and hopefully see you all at 500M+ market cap by late 2018 :)

Suggestions: April Showers

It's been a while since I posted one of these, admittedly. I've been very wobbly on the market lately and not sure if I'd invest in it myself, plus I've been feeling a little bad that the market keeps taking dumps after I post, so I've held off for a while.
However, looking back at the last post, aside from the MYWISH tragedy (Really, that looks like a lot of graphs in February as well), the rest have held up decently - Pareto Network is hitting all time Satoshi highs with its launch, Covesting's satoshi value has been steady despite a declined market, Huobi Token's has been steady and Smartland's is up while the market is actually down 33% from the post.
So without further adieu, I think the market is finally in a spot where I can make another one. If this crashes Bitcoin to 5k, well, I'm sorry.
QASH - I've always been cautious on QASH, but that is because I saw it heavily overvalued in the past - They had no product, the world book was a glimmer in people's eyes, and $2 was way too high for what the product was. However, after 3 months of slowly capitulating, QASH is finally in a good buy spot. Q2 is starting shortly, and not only has the World Book been worked on fairly dilligently, but they have their Main Net Launch in Quarter 2 coming up, so a recovering market along with a main net launch should do wonders for not only adoption of the product, but it's at an excellent entry point at $0.53.
TRAC is in a similar boat - Their roadmap is littered with Q2 releases and I love supply chain coins - The price has leveled off over time and if you're looking to get in at a specific point, $0.125 is likely a good one. Reddit has already sold it off heavily and moved onto other stuff so you're entering at a good point. They are focusing heavily on the food industry for their specific market niche.
COSS has finally reached a point where I'd take a stab at it. I've been watching COSS's volume closely, it has been slowly climbing in terms of exchange ranks, from a lowly 1 million volume per day, to 2-4 million during their heavy advertising sessions, and today it trades at a lofty $7 million / day, even though most of that is COSS's own token and Hellogold. It's been averaging about 4-5 million with Hellogold making up a lot of their exchanges. I still think DEX will be big this year, and COSS has a chance to make it big. Currently at $0.245.
POWR is a decentralized energy project that has Australian government backing. Most of its events that are coming up are in Q3 and Q4 2018, but the price has waned a good amount due to the market - If you were looking to get into a project that already has backing in the real world and has an ambitious plan, $0.31 is not a bad entry point whatsoever.
NEBL is another that's fallen from grace with the market - Their beta is launching in Q3 and like many other coins, are down significantly from lofty highs - It's on Binance and many other major exchanges, and it's a pretty good project trading at November prices right now. Here's a layout of their staking platform - Currently at $7.97.
For this one, I tried to pick a few more "well known" projects rather than speculation, as I'm sure everyone knows by now we're in a bear market and things that have active work being done and are fairly established will likely recover quicker when the market begins to move again than speculation projects. Maybe the next one I'll swish through some of the lower market cap ones.
As always, do your own research if you like any of these picks and check them out exhaustively - They're just meant for reference and looking at new and interesting projects that you might not have noticed or really been into before.
Have fun :)

Looking for confirmation (US Tax laws)

Yes, I get that this isn't binding legal/financial advice, just roll with it for a sanity check.
From what I understand, mining income is taxed like income tax, based on fiat value at the time you got it. Using Excel, I could add the day’s closing price to the exported transactions from my crypto wallets. Fine.
If you happen to sell any crypto for fiat, or trade one crypto for another, that's handled likes stocks, with a cost basis and a capital gain/loss. Still fine.
Here’s the part that’s way more ridiculous than I anticipated: So say you start mining ETH in 2018, and then a bit later you buy another altcoin with, say 5 ETH. How the %^$# do you figure out the cost basis for that trade? My guess is that using FIFO method you would go back up to the aforementioned Excel spreadsheet with hundreds of .000000124 ETH incoming mining transactions, grab the required chunk of transactions that add up to 5 ETH, and take the cost basis from that.
Ok, that’s all well and good. But now what about the next trade? And all future trades for the rest of your life? You’d have to remember that you already sold those first transactions that add up to 5 ETH, and then the next chunk, essentially keeping a running tally of thousands of microtransactions for all future years, since your crypto holdings obviously carry over year to year, and in the year 2030 you may sell off ETH from 2024.
Before anyone starts shilling BitcoinTax, CoinTracker or any of the many “.csv import” tax companies that sprung up this year, I want to point out that the very first .csv file I’ve messed with so far was from CoinBase, and was wrong. I’m not even talking about “Coinbase can’t tell what you do with your crypto once it’s off Coinbase” I’m talking about data that was flat-out wrong compared to good old-fashioned logs of my activity that I kept in realtime in Excel (thank God…). Even physically logging into Coinbase and manually scrolling all the way to the date in question showed transactions that matched my records but did not match the .csv file. As much as I would LOVE to throw $50 to make this someone else’s problem, “garbage in = garbage out” says that if I can’t trust the .csv then I can’t trust the return to be correct. If you were mining random garbage on MiningPoolHub, autoexchanging, moving to Binance, swapping for altcoins, converting some to Fiat, whatever floats your boat, how exactly are you going to audit these tax programs to at least ensure that your taxes are even remotely correct?
I get that you’re all in the same GD boat, and that you’re just as salty when you realize that all the worthless shitcoins you mined were worth more when you mined them, meaning you probably owe income tax that you don’t even have anymore if you HODLed into the ground. Or that you are either spending half your life trying to figure out how much money to hand to a government that doesn’t even like crypto, or spending half your money for someone else to do the same for you.
I need a drink… maybe after I finish taxes.

I started with 3 digits investment, profiting but yet, I'm afraid. Is it normal right?

Hello everyone,
I'm just a random guy that is seeking advices from more experienced people regarding crypto trading. A few weeks ago, when bitcoin price was around 5k I decided to jump in with a small value of 3 digits and after reading more about bitcoin, ethereum and blockchain tech I choosed to switch from bitcoin to ethereum...
So far so good, but I wasn't happy yet... So I started to resea check on alt coins, like req, iota, appcoins and xlm for example and this is the place that I'm in so far. I'm the kind of guy who research, I read all the Whitepaper from every coin available on binance and currently I'm only watching and buying and coins which I believe on the technology, and not for the possibility of making me rich. OK, let's be honest, if money comes it's fine, but it's not the main thing for me.
The thing is, currently with some value that I made from the trading I'm tempted to pay debts (I can pay then in 12months without problems) instead of holding.
Tldr:I'm starting to freak out by playing with money. Anyone on the same boat? Need help to chill a d calm down =)

[uncensored-r/CryptoCurrency] Capitalize on the Dip: this is the best low-cap crypto to buy right now

The following post by DefNotMD is being replicated because some comments within the post(but not the post itself) have been openly removed.
The original post can be found(in censored form) at this link:
np.reddit.com/ CryptoCurrency/comments/7pg2kd
The original post's content was as follows:
The markets are in a major dip right now. HODL memes aside, we all know to buy the dip and sell the peak, and this dip has lined up perfectly with a low-cap token that, as long as the crypto market grows, will continue to grow as well.
First, about me: I’ve been deployed for the past few months, and with the wars winding down, I’ve had a lot of free time to follow the scene. I am by no means a crypto expert—I’ve just bought and held, and my portfolio has gone up 600% since I started in August 2017—but the key takeaway is that I’ve learned when to buy. RaiBlocks at $2.00, COSS at $0.20, Enjin at $0.15, and 15 others. There are a few things I look for when it comes to timing:
  • Product potential
  • Road Map
  • Exchange Listings
  • Current Market Cap
  • Time in market
  • Historical price trends
  • Competitor’s performance
  • Social Media/Marketing presence
  • Concerns
I’m going to cover all of these on why Bounty0x is the best buy right now, especially during the current dip (a dip that we will most definitely break out of in the near future).
1. Product Potential
Bounty0x is a decentralized bounty hunting network that utilizes its own token. They have an alpha product here where you can list a software bug bounty, or a social media bounty, or whatever kind of freelance task you want. There were a few issues I had with it before I wanted to invest, but the community clarified them for me:
  • You can get paid in any currency (fiat, Monero, Ethereum, Raiblocks, whatever). The BNTY token is not the only payment option.
  • What’s the token for, then? We all know that the price depends on supply and demand, so what’s creating the demand? Well, it’s used as a staking mechanism to keep participants honest because you have to “stake” some BNTY tokens to participate.
  • It incentivizes quality bounty requests, because if your bounty post gets rejected for being against the guidelines, a portion of the BNTY tokens you submitted gets burned. This encourages people to only post high quality, fully fleshed out requests.
  • It is used by “bounty hunters” (freelancers) to participate in super bounties (super bounties are tasks that are usually subjective and/or highly technical). If the bounty hunter’s submission is rejected (for example, if they claim a typo in a third-party code comment is a bug <- you guys should definitely read that one), then a portion of their BNTY tokens are burned. This encourages bounty hunters/freelancers to only submit legitimate solutions.
  • It is used by the sheriffs (yeah I know, cheesy name, they’re basically the moderators) to participate in determining whether a bounty has been performed correctly—if they are the lone dissenter in the group of sheriffs (right now, it requires a majority decision with at least three sheriffs) then a portion of their BNTY tokens are burned.
From a timing perspective, the fact that they already have a working product while in alpha tells me that when it's in beta or fully released, it's going to be even bigger--and it’s already paying out real world bounties. Given their niche market, and the lack of competitors, I'm more than confident that there will continue to be a growing demand for Bounty0x. And we all know that, especially in the crypto world, early adopters are rewarded.
2. Roadmap
  • Feb 2018: Integrating with social media and redesigning the platform. What makes this unique is that they’re getting live feedback from the alpha version of their product, which is a whole lot more than what most tokens can say. It’s a very good sign that they’re taking their time, learning their lessons, and not releasing a bug-filled final product.
  • Mar 2018: Complete automated payment distribution.
  • 2018 Q2: Launching the Beta product, and the staking mechanism that defines the BNTY token. Sheriffs will actually be able to earn Bounty0x too, as payment for good conduct.
  • 2018 Q3 and Q4: Incorporate machine learning to further smooth out the product, support external modules/plugins, initiate a buy back program (the buy back program ensures that the price does not fall below a certain limit), and finalize the Bounty0x network.
  • 2019 and beyond: Release the mobile apps, and enable crosschain support.
From a timing perspective, this is an unusual opportunity, because even though it’s “the long game,” they already have a working product right now, which is a rare thing for a crypto token. So being an early adopter right now pays off both in the short term and long term. I'd also expect there to be incremental jumps every quarter with every update.
3. Exchange Listings
It’s not on very many exchanges, and KuCoin is really the best option (and EtherDelta if you so wish). What does that mean? Just like with RaiBlocks three weeks ago, the limited exchange options artificially limits the demand, thus artificially keeping the price low. Right now, the next exchange could be Bit-Z, with a $400 million daily trading volume (compared to KuCoin's $340 million).
From a timing perspective, you absolutely have to get in before it comes to the masses (à la Binance, et. al.). All one has to do is look at Raiblocks' history over the past few weeks to know how important this is.
4. Current Market Cap
Currently at $78,135,634 which ranks 233 on Coinmarketcap. I don't look at this as "it's undervalued," because it's a little difficult to guess what its actual value is due to lack of competitors. Instead, I see this more as a testament to its potential--meaning, it's growth is far from over, and whatever its end valuation will be will certainly be much higher than #233.
From a timing perspective, you want to get in on coins before they break the top 100. It isn't too late if you do, but you're set to be in a better position if you buy in while it's still a small cap.
5. Time in Market
It's been out for two weeks. It's already been used for a redditor's webstore on this sub, but it's also just starting to get featured in mainstream articles.
From a timing perspective, you want to get in before people start paying attention. Did you see how quickly it was used just from a reddit post? This isn't just speculation. How much longer until it reaches /all?
6. Historical Price Trends
Past performance is not an indicator of future performance. Every investor knows this. But we can also take a look at other cryptos to dispel certain myths. For instance, when Bounty0x was released, it traded for $0.10 and it's now at ~$0.70--that's a growth of 700%! Many people see that percent change and think that they missed the boat. But I'd argue the opposite--that the boat is still taking on passengers, especially when you look at its short time in market and its small market cap.
For example, DragonChain grew by 400% in its first two weeks! You may have thought you missed the boat on that too, but had you bought in at the peak of that growth, you'd have seen 650% gain just a few weeks later. The point is, seeing how much it's grown in the past two weeks is not an indication that it will keep growing at its current rate, but it is also not a reason to think it's done growing.
From a timing perspective, you never want to buy at the all time high. Bounty0x is currently down 20% from its ATH, meaning this is the time you want to buy.
7. Competitor’s Performance
As far as I know, it has no competitors. Maybe Fiverr, but they don't use crypto. It's on a bull run all by itself, just like Bitcoin was back in the day.
8. Social Media/Marketing Presence
Bounty0x has been leveraged to find the EtherDelta hacker, which is still an open case. Bounty0x has partnered up with SwissBorg, a Swiss crypto investment platform (and it's not just for a one-time bounty). See this very insightful post on uses outside of software bug bounties with respect to social media. It's only a matter of time before one of the big bounties gets fulfilled and publicized. Once that happens (say, the EtherDelta hacker was caught, and Bounty0x was utilized)--that's when the boat will have finally left.
From a timing perspective, you want to get in before it reaches that critical mass on social media. You want to get in before your hairdresser starts talking about it.
9. Concerns
As much as I'm excited about Bounty0x, I do have a few concerns. One, their team is super young and inexperienced. That's not really easy to objectively quantify, sinc...

[uncensored-r/CryptoCurrency] A Lost Gem In A Sea Of Shitcoins

The following post by globetrotter_s14 is being replicated because some comments within the post(but not the post itself) have been openly removed.
The original post can be found(in censored form) at this link:
np.reddit.com/ CryptoCurrency/comments/7h69xa
The original post's content was as follows:
What’s up everyone!
 
Yeah, it’s another one of “those”. But honestly, after being in the game for long enough, you end up developing an eye for the good coins. Not the “good” ones, the GOOD ones. Believe it or not, research and common sense is the name of the game!
 
A little bit more about me: I come from a business & logistics management background. I started investing in cryptocurrencies and trading a little more than six months ago. As a person, I am very detail oriented and I’ve been researching all kinds of cryptos, for hours a day, for the past six months. The more I researched, the more I learned, the more I became hungry for knowledge, and therefore the more i researched. From trading to cryptocurrency basics, their economics, their political implications, the technology revolution they represent, the human psychology aspect as well as emotional trading behaviours (FOMO, FODO, etc.), all of it!
 
I’ve purchased Ethereum at 150$ (when I first started in crypto). Then NEO back when it was still AntShares and trading under 3$. Gas (Antcoin back then) at 30c, OMG when it was sub-1$, and ETP at exactly a dollar (selling it later at 5$). This was all before I even knew how to do a basic margin trade & was still in the process of learning about crypto (and while tether still had a “reasonable” market cap! LOL)
 
My approach is pretty simple when it comes to crypto. I split coins into seven main categories:
 
-Store of Value (BTC)
-Payment (DASH, BCH, LTC)
-Pure Anonymity and/or Evil Stuff (XMR)
-Platform/platform’ish (ETH, NEO, LISK, CARDANO, ETP, Iota, Factom and the likes)
-Shitcoins (99% of ERC20 tokens)
-Absolute Shitcoins (Boolberry, Embercoin et al.)
-Fee Split / Dividend Coins
 
That last category is my favorite. While I do strongly believe in diversification (10% store of value, 10% payment, 5% anonymity, 25% platform in my case), I always have a “lean” towards coins that make business sense. Coins that derive their value directly from the amount of usage the platform gets (Factom, for example). Coins such as NEO, BNB, Kucoin, Coss, ICN, TenX and the likes, basically coins that either have a direct “dividend-paying” property (NEO generating gas, Kucoin/Coss awarding holders with a % of the exchange’s trading fees) or an indirect “dividend paying” property such as BNB, ICN, TenX using quarterly profits to buy back their own coins and burn them, thus raising the value of the rest of the coins in circulation over time.
 
Now let’s look at market caps of these direct and indirect “dividend” coins.
 
Neo: 2.3B
TenX: 246M
Binance: 200M
Iconomi: 155M
Kucoin: 44M (68M at ath, not too long ago)
Coss: 5M
 
You see that odd one there with only 5M market cap? Yeah. That’s the great buy right now. That’s the x10, x20 or even x30 that most people haven’t realized yet. That’s also the “dividend coin” you can scoop a ton of while it’s on the cheap, and make massive recurring revenue from as the exchange solidifies and evolves.
 
What is COSS? COSS stands for Crypto One Stop Solution. They’re a Singapore based cryptocurrency exchange with an amazing team that’s currently expanding. They aim at becoming the “One Stop” solution for crypto, meaning A) an exchange, B) a payment gateway for merchants to accept crypto payments, and probably sometime in the future C) crypto debit/credit cards. They offer their own coin (COSS coin), and holders of this coin receive 50% of the trading fees generated by the exchange (more on this later).
 
Now, what a lot of people still don’t realize in crypto, you don’t invest in the bigger market cap coins expecting to make a killing (“the moonshot”). Sure, they’ll bring you nice long term growth as the whole market matures, and that’s where you want to diversify and solidify your portfolio, solid coins with a purpose. But what if you want more thrill? An actual opportunity to “moon”? You find a project that makes business sense, that has at least a working product, and a good team. Buying NEO at 2.5B market cap? You missed the boat, it was a dollar a few months ago and already went x60 (“mooned”), and now stabilized at roughly x38. OMG had it’s x10-15 already. BNB as well. Their market caps are big, and a lot of buying needs to happen to even double in price.
 
Antshares (NEO) back then was a steal at 1, 2 and 3$. It was a huge risk, with huge rewards. They didn’t even have a product other than their blockchain. No dApp running or even being built on it, no english resources to even figure out how to code on it and deploy a smart contract, no marketing, hell we didn’t even know if Da Hongfei was still alive. All it was is a Chinese based smart contract platform, with an innovative dBFT concensus algorithm. It was a 100M market cap coin that early adopters believed in, and essentially invested in when it was not much more than a website and a blockchain. Look where it’s at now, with more than a dozen dApps being built on it, a solid team of roughly 10 devs, with the NEO council also funding City of Zion (team of 20+ NEO devs). NEO has grown into an incredible community, and is now launching coding dApp contests left and right, with the latest one in partnership with Microsoft china & offering half a million dollar’s worth in prizes.
 
NEO holders get rewarded with GAS on a daily basis. When NEO gets further adoption, all fees such as registering an asset, deploying a contract, changing an asset, etc. will be redistributed to NEO holders as well on a pro rated basis. Only transaction fees are not, as those will go out to MasterNodes. If you got yourself a thousand NEO’s back when they were a dollar or two a piece, you’re now generating 7 gas per month. That’s roughly 161$ USD per month, on a recurring basis, at current gas prices, out of a 1000$ investment. That’s a whopping 16.1% PER MONTH on original investment, and not even counting the fact that you pretty much made 37000$ profit on the NEO’s themselves. Today? Well, you gotta dish out 38000$ to buy a thousand neos and make 161$ per month, basically bringing you 0.4% per month on original investment.
 
Same with bitcoin. Early adopters that got it at pennies. It just hit $10K USD a piece. For every 30 cent spent purchasing bitcoin in 2009, you’d have $10K USD in the bank account. Invested 3$? 100K. Invested 30$? 1M.
 
Ethereum? From a dollar to half a grand now.
 
Moral of the story? Early adoption pays off. History repeats itself, and it will continue to do so. Bitcoin was digital money for nerds, ethereum was a cool project that nobody really gave a crap about until they got EEA which showed credibility (early adopters of eth had a great vision, I’ll give them that!). Neo was chinese vaporware. What do they all have in common? Their.Early. Adopters. Made. A. Killing.
 
Look where they stand now. Look where a lot of coins stand now. Even a lot of ERC20 tokens that don’t even really have a reason to exist have market caps over 100M. And for what? They don’t reward you with anything other than price increasing because more people buy (greater fool theory)? They don’t reward you with dividends from the project/platform itself? Their value isn’t derived directly from the amount of usage it gets (a la Factom, PaulSnow you genius.)? They still don’t even have a minimum viable product to show? When you ask yourself why does it need a coin, and the answer is either “uhh…” or “oh it grants you voting rights” (that nobody gives a crap about, let’s be honest), you should reconsider your investment strategy. Cause I can tell you a lot of people don’t know what the hell they’re doing, and they’d be better off diversifying in the top 5 or 10 coins and holding than investing in the shitcoinfest that crypto has become.
 
And that’s why COSS is a pretty buy right now. You’re investing in a platform that’s already up and running, not a whitepaper or vaporware. Hell even Eth and Neo were riskier investments for early adopters. Let’s go over the cons first:
 
It’s ugly. The UI sucks.
It doesn’t have API’s yet, meaning there’s no bots to create liquidity, and therefore low volume.
It’s been fudded to death by KuCoin shills (and their referral links you’ve seen everywhere a month ago).
Charts are horrible
 
That’s about it. Whenever you read up about coss, those are the cons you’ll find. But what about the pros? Well, all of this is in the process of being fixed, as we speak.
 
Singapore has lax laws about cryptocurrencies and issued a statement it does not feel the need to regulate them.
It’s securing exclusive ICO’s already despite being a tiny exchange, and has mentioned being able to secure from 4 to 6 per month.
The team listens to the community’s feedback and takes it seriously. This is Gold. One of the first things they were criticized about was trying to do too many things at once (an exchange, a payment gateway, a full one-stop solution for crypto, etc.) and they’ve taken the community’s advice and decided to focus solely on the exchange for now and build it properly, before branching out to the rest. “Better excel at one thing and build from there, than be mediocre at multiple things at once” ...
