Market Watch: Altcoins On Fire As Bitcoin Dominance Taps ...

The next XVG? Microcap 100x potential actually supported by fundamentals!

What’s up team? I have a hot one for you. XVG returned 12 million percent in 2017 and this one reminds me a lot of it. Here’s why:
Mimblewimble is like Blu-Ray compared to CD-ROM in terms of its ability to compress data on a blockchain. The current BTC chain is 277gb and its capacity is limited because every time you spend a coin, each node needs to validate its history back to when it was mined (this is how double spending is prevented). Mimblewimble is different - all transactions in a block are aggregated and netted out in one giant CoinJoin, and only the current spending needs to be verified. This means that dramatically more transactions can fit into a smaller space, increasing throughput and lowering fees while still retaining the full proof of work game theory of Bitcoin. These blockchains are small enough to run a full node on a cheap smartphone, which enhances the decentralization and censorship resistance of the network.
The biggest benefit, though, is that all transactions are private - the blockchain doesn’t reveal amounts or addresses except to the actual wallet owner. Unlike earlier decoy-based approaches that bloat the chain and can still be data mined (XMR), Mimblewimble leaves no trace in the blockchain, instead storing only the present state of coin ownership.
The first two Mimblewimble coins, Grin and Beam, launched to great fanfare in 2019, quickly reaching over $100m in market cap (since settled down to $22m and $26m respectively). They are good projects but grin has infinite supply and huge never-decreasing emission, and Beam is a corporate moneygrab whose founding investors are counting on you buying for their ROI.
ZEC is valued at $568m today, despite the facts that only 1% of transactions are actually shielded, it has a trusted setup, and generating a confidential transaction takes ~60 seconds on a powerful PC. XMR is a great project but it’s valued at $1.2b (so no 100x) and it uses CryptoNote, which is 2014 tech that relies on a decoy-based approach that could be vulnerable to more powerful computers in the future. Mimblewimble is just a better way to approach privacy because there is simply no data recorded in the blockchain for companies to surveil.
Privacy is not just for darknet markets, porn, money launderers and terrorists. In many countries it’s dangerous to be wealthy, and there are all kinds of problems with having your spending data be out there publicly and permanently for all to see. Namely, companies like Amazon are patenting approaches to identify people with their crypto addresses, “for law enforcement” but also so that, just like credit cards, your spending data can be used to target ads. (A) Coinbase is selling user data to the DEA, IRS, FBI, Secret Service, and who knows who else? (B) What about insurance companies raising your premiums or canceling your policy because they see you buying (legal) cannabis? If your business operates using transparent cryptocurrency, competitors can data mine your customer and supply chain data, and employees can see how much everyone else gets paid. I could go on, but the idea of “I have nothing to hide, so what do I care about privacy?” will increasingly ring hollow as people realize that this money printing will have to be paid by massive tax increases AND that those taxes will be directly debited from their “Central Bank Digital Currency” wallets.
100% privacy for all transactions also eliminates one HUGE problem that people aren’t aware of yet, but they will be: fungibility. Fungibility means that each coin is indistinguishable from any other, just like paper cash. Why is this important? Because of the ever-expanding reach of AML/KYC/KYT (Anti-Money Laundering / Know Your Customer / Know Your Transaction) as regulators cramp down on crypto and banks take over, increasingly coins become “tainted” in various ways. For example, if you withdraw coins to a mixing service like Wasabi or Samourai, you may find your account blocked. (C) The next obvious step is that if you receive coins that these chainalysis services don’t like for whatever reason, you will be completely innocent yet forced to prove that you didn’t know that the coins you bought were up to no good in a past life. 3 days ago, $100k of USDC was frozen. (D) Even smaller coins like LTC now have this problem, because “Chinese Drug Kingpins” used them. (E) I believe that censorable money that can be blocked/frozen isn’t really “your money”.
Epic Cash is a 100% volunteer community project (like XVG and XMR) that had a fair launch in September last year with no ICO and no premine. There are very few projects like this, and it’s a key ingredient in Verge’s success (still at $110m market cap today despite being down 97% since the bubble peak) and why it’s still around. It has a small but super passionate community of “Freemen” who are united by a belief in the sound money economics of Bitcoin Standard emission (21m supply limit and ever-decreasing inflation) and the importance of privacy.
I am super bullish on this coin for the following reasons:
Because it doesn’t have a huge marketing budget in a sea of VC-funded shitcoins, it is as-yet undiscovered, which is why it’s so cheap. There are only 4 Mimblewimble-based currencies on the market: MWC at $162m, BEAM at $26m, GRIN at $22m, and EPIC at $0.4m. This is not financial advice and as always, do your own research, but I’ve been buying this gem for months and will continue to.
This one ticks all the boxes for me, the only real problem is that it’s hard to buy much without causing a huge green candle. Alt season is coming, and coins like this are how your neighbor Chad got his Lambo back in 2017. For 2021, McLaren is a better choice and be sure to pay cash so that it doesn’t get repossessed like Chad!

How to ACCURATELY track your coins in your portfolio? Legitimately confused over conversions.

This is becoming very frustrating and I seem to be struggling to wrap my head around it.
When you enter your coin purchase info into any of these portfolio trackers, typically it is quantity, price per unit (or total value), currency used, and date. Thing is..it tends to use the end of the day price of BTC (if that is the currency used) to determine it's conversion.
Basically what I am finding is the price (in USD) I "think" I am purchasing at on Binance...isn't the price reflected on a portfolio tracker.
Case in point, purchased some alt coin yesterday on Binance which appeared to be $0.64 / coin or 0.00004101 BTC (as to what I visually saw when pressing the purchase button). When I plug this info into my portfolio tracker, it ends up saying $0.76..and immediately it appears as if I am in a loss since the current price hovers around $0.72.
So I went to use a couple conversion tools that are date based. Thing is..you can't trust these tools either. If I choose December 19, 2017 at this link: https://www.investing.com/currencies/btc-usd-converter and use 0.00004101 btc, I get $0.71. This is the one I thought would be closer to $0.64 or if anything closer to $0.70..yet Binance says $0.76.
If I change the BTC amount to 0.00003698 and the date to December 18, 2017 it comes out to $0.70, which is closer to the Binance value of $0.6857 that I see.
If I change tools...and go over to https://tools.bitcoin.com/, and enter that same criteria as above, then 0.00004101 on Dec 19 = $0.78, and 0.00003698 on Dec 18 = $0.70.
So the tools.bitcoin.com one seems to be closer to the values I see on Binance for my various purchases...but doesn't seem to align which the price at which I thought I was making my purchases. The $0.68/$0.69 I recall as being accurate, but at no point did I think I was buying it the 3rd time at $0.76. Only way I can imagine is if I caught some really weird spike/bubble within seconds that made it jump from $0.70 to $0.76.
So my takeway from all this is I have trouble trusting my gains or losses on a tracker if the btc -> USD can be so volatile OR if the tracker is not accurately applying the prices.
I hope I laid this out properly and apologies if it is confusing..it is confusing to me.
