Onecoin's curator insight, January 15, 2015 12:21 AM

Welcome to my first newsletter of 2015, and what a way to start the New Year with 35000 members and counting!!

We are adding somewhere between 1000 and 2000 members a day right now which means we could be looking at between 400 000 and 500 000 members this time next year.

In my estimation, if we continue at this growth rate, once we start the mining on January 20th, we would be well on track to become number two in cryptocurrency market capitalizations, just behind the leader Bitcoin which is currently standing at a market cap of $ 3,691,867,140 and well ahead of number two, Ripple at only $577 million. Source: http://coinmarketcap.com/

And if we can achieve this in our first year…what do you think will happen in year two? Correct, OneCoin can become the Number One cryptocurrency in the world, ahead of current dominant player, Bitcoin which has been around since 2008.
Onecoin is still in an early stage and therefore interesting for investors, while Bitcoin is already very mature . less profit there

Fiat Versus Finance: The Centennial of the Federal Reserve versus the Rise of Bitcoins - Bitcoin Magazine | money money money | Scoop.it

If there is an annual pre-Christmas Eve ritual in Washington, DC, and Wall Street, some invitation-only celebration within the travertine marble headquarters of one organization and several other joint ceremonies amidst banks of computer terminals, flat-screen displays and heavily carpeted floors, if such an event does exist – a December 23rd night of champagne toasts and conspiratorial communiqués – I do not know of it. Or, rather, I have yet to receive any such greeting.

The Dollar Will Never Fall to Bitcoin

The Dollar Will Never Fall to Bitcoin | money money money | Scoop.it

“A significant benefit of bitcoin in the eyes of many in the bitcoin community is its assurance of a stable base money supply. … The rate of new bitcoin mining is similar to the mining rate of precious metals such as gold or silver. … This means that bitcoin is largely inflation-proof. Time and experience may prove it to be a more stable store of value than many fiat currencies.”

The battle for euro-zone reforms: Angela all alone | The Economist

The battle for euro-zone reforms: Angela all alone | The Economist | money money money | Scoop.it

MAYBE it is the strongest sign that Europe’s leaders think the worst of the euro-zone crisis is over. For nearly four years Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, has been all-dominant in Europe. But at this week’s EU summit in Brussels she ran into an almost unified wall of opposition - from both creditor and debtor countries alike - against her idea of introducing “contracts” to promote economic reforms. Rub your eyes; this does not happen often in European politics. Usually it is Germany - not the rest of Europe - that says nein.

Bitcoin Weekly: Predictions for BTC in 2014 | SiliconANGLE

Bitcoin Weekly: Predictions for BTC in 2014 | SiliconANGLE | money money money | Scoop.it
With 2013 wrapping up we’ve seen some amazing movement and popularization for the cryptocurrency so-named Bitcoin. The beginning of 2013 saw BTC value at $13 and through a series of leaps and bounds the value eventually exceeded $1000—this is great for speculators but the general volatility has been feared as something of a thorn in the side of adoption. That said, the increase in value has also come along with a booster shot of general media popularity which itself has driven a great deal of adoption.

You will be jailed and whatever cash they find on you they'll seize on the spot, and convert into new cruisers or toys for your local SWAT team, which will be deployed to kick in the doors of houses where more such inessential economic cogs as you live. If you don't have a systemically important job, in other words, the government's position is that your assets may be used to finance your own political disenfranchisement.

Is Inflation About to Come Back? - Bloomberg

Could 2014 be the year that the U.S. economy gets back to normal, with faster inflation as one consequence? At least, that’s the argument that Business Insider’s Joe Weisenthal made over the weekend. Such predictions have been wrong before, but enough has changed during the past six years to make this a serious position.
