Growth is a goal that’s worth achieving, in most cases, and the current economic paradigm favors it. But when central banks start undermining their fiat economies and crypto companies begin to mimic financial institutions in its name, growth becomes an end in itself with self-destructive tendencies. Deutsche Bank’s head of strategy Jim Reid recently noted that when central banks are so aggressive, Bitcoin starts to look more attractive, while whistleblower Edward Snowden warned the crypto community that the next big bank is not what the world needs. Are they right?
The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is currently reviewing three bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs), one of which was filed last week to track the prices of two cryptocurrencies.

Delphi Digital has returned with another installment of its unspent transaction output (UTXO) reports. Recalling its report from January of this year, the research firm says bitcoin’s market cycle is right on track. The prior report called Q1 as the bottom of the bear market, and this claim was later corroborated by Adamant Capital’s own evaluation.
As before, Delphi Digital’s evaluates UTXOs as presages of market buying and selling, and by extension, the future trajectory of the market. UTXOs is a technical way of describing the last time bitcoin was moved by looking at the last block a transaction was included in.
The political spectrum is usually divided into four main categories: libertarian left, authoritarian left, libertarian right and authoritarian right. Those on the left prefer a more controlled economy, while those on the right have a preference for free markets. Libertarians tend to promote more liberal social policies, while authoritarians want to control what people do in the privacy of their own homes.
This is generally how political leanings are defined today, but technologies like Bitcoin and end-to-end encryption are changing that as our digital lives become, in some ways, more important than what we do in the real, physical world.

Haven’t dipped your toes in Bitcoin’s waters, yet? Well, according to one market analyst, now’s the time to take the plunge.
In an interview with Bloomberg Television on Thursday, Pantera Capital Management’s CEO Dan Morehead made some seriously bullish comments in regards to Bitcoin — claiming the gold standard of digital assets “is a screaming buy right now.”
Morehead, whose cryptocurrency hedge fund is worth $ 1 billion, noted that roughly 10 percent of its investments are in Bitcoin. However, the firm’s single largest investment is in Icon (ICX), a South Korean blockchain protocol which aims to allow different digital ledgers the ability to talk to each other.

One of the most important factors to consider when buying Bitcoin is the exchange you use. Nowadays, there are many Bitcoin exchanges to choose from and not all are good.

Some are saying this year is going to be the year that gaming dominates the crypto headlines, and from what we have seen so far it is not something we would like to short.
Billions of gamers worldwide have been buying into tokenized gameplay for many years, with all manner of in-app purchases for coins and other digital items. However, the blockchain now has the potential to disrupt the gaming sector forever, by decentralizing ownership of these digital assets on the blockchain using smart contracts, in a similar way the internet and mobiles changed the way we now play games.
