UK based Coinbase customers can now buy Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies faster and cheaper with same day deposits and withdrawals in GBP to British bank accounts.

Buying Bitcoin in the UK now more accessible

At the beginning of April Coinbase announced that they will be introducing British pound (GBP) support for UK-based customers. Now that this is up-and-running it really makes buying Bitcoin in the UK a lot more accessible.

The cheapest way to buy Bitcoin in the UK

Until now many UK-based buyers have had to use the Revolut app to bridge this gap. But now you can just send British pounds (GBP) directly from your bank account. There is no need to convert from GBP to EUR in the app, shortening the buying process quite considerably. This update also applies to Coinbase Pro (traders) and Coinbase Prime (institutions).

CoinbasePro and Zero Fees!

Using Coinbase Pro is now by far the cheapest way to buy Bitcoin in the UK, in our book. If using a maker order when executing the trade it’s literally zero fees!

User testing has reported, it took around 20 minutes for a deposit to show on our Coinbase account. A sharp contrast to the previous process of converting Bitcoin into euros and then into pound sterling, via international bank transfer, which took several days.

Although it has taken quite some time for this to be activated after the initial Coinbase announcement, now it is fully available – it’s great!

To get started with Coinbase and receive free Bitcoin from our referral click here.

User behavioural data is a major component of cyberspace today, and internet users are active contributors to these (big data); All user activities on the Internet are intangibly recorded and stored by various platforms.

The importance of user behaviour data acquisition

The importance of user behaviour data acquisition (aka “traffic”) is often emphasized in digital media industries through page views (PV) and IP address tracking mechanisms. With the invention of so many digital applications and e-services, these user behavioural data are also becoming more diverse. However, not all of them constitutes as valid data. A 10-year-old who’s highly interested in cars, visits automobile websites daily, but has no real buying power, is not a real prospect for a car business, hence all data supporting otherwise is invalid.

The loophole of behavioural consumption

However, to this day, companies selling consumer data do not recognise this loophole of behavioural consumption. Based on years of analysis on pain points in big data consumption and e-commerce businesses, IBD Technology has focused on the research and development of new business and technical consensus; With the aforementioned issue of data validity, the TOOL e-commerce ecosystem solves business roadblocks like these.

TOOL Global blockchain e-commerce ecosystem for SMEs

TOOL Global’s new ecosystem is built on a solid foundation of blockchain technology. It provides REST API interfaces for global SMEs and merchants to collect effective user behaviour data and encrypts and stores these desensitized data to provide value mining of tokens. So there will be no more worries about security and privacy protection. A number of platforms aggregate global consumption data and share them to SMEs /merchants looking to use them. These merchants would distribute tokens according to the established standards of the platform. For example, if businesses join the ecosystem today, they can independently issue BT (value tags for measuring the contribution of customer behaviour data) to users within the ecosystem. The system distributes this authority in a distributed manner; Decentralized merchants decide how to issue BT, instead of the platforms.

All businesses follow a certain standard to keep accounts, and the data is stored on all nodes. This is called mining of behavioural data at a commercial consensus level. It’s not a real machine node mining through a computational competition, but a self-incentive mechanism based on the contribution of user’s consumption behaviour data. If merchant A determines that a user’s consumer behaviour is worth a dollar, it will issue a BT worth a dollar. If merchant B feels this behaviour is worth two bucks, they can issue two BTs. The users decide which merchant to choose, and they benefit from this competitive environment.

Motivate data contribution

Fees paid by these data users (the SMEs/merchants in this case) are automatically rewarded (by the platform) to data sources (people like you and me) that contribute according to established standards, and serves to motivate data contribution, thereby forming a sustainable, ecological closed loop. The technical consensus of TOOL Global is called DS-PBFT (Delegated Stake- Practical Byzantine Fault Tolerance). It is a billing node voting method for polling and can reach a consensus with high efficiency. It can’t be completely distributed and decentralized like the POW mechanism, but it can achieve a certain degree of multi-centred effect. It can effectively reduce costs and resource waste while improving efficiency and data protection.

The above two consensus innovations are key breakthroughs in TOOL Global. Of course, in the TOOL ecosystem, there are many other functions such as smart contracts, AI modules for financial payments, and so on. IBD Technology will make hard efforts to create more functions that will enable SMEs to reduce their operating difficulties. In the near future, small and medium-sized enterprises and merchants in the TOOL ecosystem can achieve truly low-cost precision marketing.

From today, the national Venezuelan Petro cryptocurrency will be officially exchanged for the value of a barrel of oil on the global markets – approximately $60 US dollars at the time of writing.

The first ever state-backed cryptocurrency: Petro (PTC)

Cryptocurrency adoption received a boost over the weekend, following the progression of President Maduro’s plan to peg the Venezuelan national currency’s exchange rate to the sovereign cryptocurrency Petro (PTR). As per the white paper issued by the Venezuelan government, “each Petro will be backed by a barrel of oil and will be sold at the same price.”

The current price of a barrel of oil is around $60. On Friday (17th August), Venezuela’s President had announced that that one Petro (PTR) would equal $60 after the redenomination planned for today.

1 Petro = 1 Oil Barrel = 60 Dollars

Today, Venezuelan banks will be closed to prepare for the release of the freshly printed, Petro pegged “sovereign bolívar”. In effect, this deletes five zeroes from the Venezuelan national currency devaluing it by 96 per cent.

Yesterday 1 bitcoin was worth 44 billion bolivars, now it's at 59 billion.

$1 = 6.7 million bolivars yesterday, now it's at 9.2 million in less than 24 hours.

— EduardoGómez (@Codiox) August 18, 2018

The South American country has been suffering extreme hyperinflation and international sanctions for its “unconstitutional” and “undemocratic behaviour”. According to the Guardian, inflation is so high that in Venezuela a chicken costs over 14 million (pre-Petro) bolivars.

In a bid to overcome US and EU sanctions, the Venezuelan government has outlined in its white paper, that the strategy “will foster the emergence of a fairer, more collaborative global financial system that is conducive to growth, autonomy and trade among developing economies..”

Trump ban on Venezuelan cryptocurrency

It is not at all yet clear whether Venezuela’s bold national Petro cryptocurrency adoption is going to be successful at tackling inflation or international sanctions, given that the US President Donald Trump banned American use of Venezuelan cryptocurrency in its latest sanctions against Maduro’s government, citing the Independent.

The cryptocurrency community on Petro

The cryptocurrency community itself is not impressed with Petro (PTR). Rating website ICOindex.com giving the token a “scam status,” saying the project was missing critical information, from the description of the mechanism to its technology and supposed oil-backing. And also, but even more importantly it is centralised ie governed by the Venezuelan state. The cryptocurrency community is mainly interested in decentralised projects.

CryptoCoinsZone wishes the Venezuelan people a fast recovery from this economic turmoil and unrestricted access to the whole cryptocurrency market.

Bitcoin’s (BTC) is still holding above $6,000, which has increased the chance of a bitcoin market reversal, technical studies indicate.

At the time of writing, the Bitcoin (BTC) spot price is at $6,352 on the Bitstamp exchange. Bitcoin has held its support at around the $6,000 price mark for the fourth time over the last seven months.

Tradingview Chart – BTC/USD Bitstamp

BTC was expected to drop below $6,000 over the last week as the bears were on the offensive to try and create a “lower low” in order to continue the overall bearish trend.

Are the bitcoin bulls back?

Whilst it is too early to call a bullish trend reversal, the fourth confirmation of a strong $6,000 support level for BTC has saved the week for the bulls. It seems more likely now, that $6,000 is realistically the “bottom” for Bitcoin.

Tradingview Chart – BTC/USD Bitstamp

From a bearish perspective, a failure to produce a significant move higher, and particularly a move above the bearish resistance line at around $7,000, could signify a fifth testing of the $6,000 support level. The downside move will likely gather pace if BTC fails to hold above $6,000 over the next days and weeks.

Will the bitcoin bears take control? Tradingview Chart – BTC/USD Bitstamp – SMA’s

Also in the bears’ favour are currently three important indicators. The 21, 50 and 100-day simple moving averages (SMA’s), which will provide further support to the $7,000 resistance level. Bitcoin (BTC) is going to need high volume and momentum to be able to break this price barrier and look to test the 200-day SMA at around $8,000 again. 

CryptoCoins Zone will continue to monitor the BTC Price Chart for further indicators either to the upside or the downside, but for the time being, based on the above technical analysis it is still too early to make a call for a bullish bitcoin trend reversal.
