Expert predicts cryptocurrency boom ‘within a year’ as Bitcoin marks its 10th anniversary

Investors are remaining positive about Bitcoin as it marks its 10-year anniversary, despite a worrying drop in value in recent months.

At one point, it was considered so worthless that, in May 2010, Florida-based programmer Laszlo Hanyecz bought two pizzas for 10,000 Bitcoin, valued at the time at $30.

In addition, Coinbase added that its intention was to eventually “support withdrawal services for the [Bitcoin Cash “Satoshi Vision” or Bitcoin SV] chain” but that development work for this would likely take “at least a few weeks.” Other exchanges such as Poloniex and Bitfinex have already begun supporting active trading for both networks, simply doing away with the original BCH symbol entirely and differentiating the two cryptocurrencies as BCHABC or BAB and BCHSV or BSV. In addition, data from Coin Dance indicates that the Bitcoin ABC chain is leading Bitcoin SV both in terms of block count and proof of work.

Three Ways Blockchain Technology Will Revolutionize Real Estate in 2019

Blockchain is poised to redefine how we make transactions in the same way that the internet has redefined how we communicate and share information.

Many crypto and blockchain-based companies are looking to the technology to help solve social and environmental issues of our time, such as sustainable supply chains and decarbonizing and democratizing energy systems. That said, the exponential energy consumption and carbon emissions produced from the proof-of-work algorithm required for mining Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is directly at odds with this vision for the technology. So what, as an industry, can we do about it?

In 2019, the most innovative work involving distributed ledger technology (DLT) – blockchain – will focus on the tokenization of assets, or the ability to represent digital or physical assets and fiat currencies as tokens that can be sold or traded on a network. DLT has the ability to take anything, from a piece of artwork to gems and real estate, and represent them as cryptographically hashed assets on a peer-to-peer, open electronic network that has no central authority, such as a bank, governing their trade or sale.
