🗞 Trump’s Currency War With China Could Be Bitcoin’s Do-or-Die Moment

The global economy faces its biggest crisis in 11 years.


In theory, this should be bitcoin’s moment to shine, a chance to prove itself as an uncorrelated asset immune from political risks. Eventually, that result may bear out. But a rocky road lies ahead – for bitcoiners and nocoiners alike.


Before we do the bitcoin up or down game, let’s dive into why the current situation in global finance is so disturbing.


The Backdrop


It all begun last Monday, when Beijing let the renminbi fall below RMB7.0 to the dollar.
Almost immediately, the U.S. Treasury Department said it would take the rare step of labeling China a “currency manipulator,” a move that, in theory, would give the Trump Administration legal cover to impose punitive sanctions against Chinese. Markets freaked out at the specter of a currency war, a tit-for-tat feedback loop of exchange rate depreciations fueling a destructive downward spiral in trade and growth.


Now, that fear may never play out.

🗞 Justin Sun: Tron’s Listing on Major US Exchange Is #1 Priority

Tron (TRX) founder Justin Sun has said that getting the cryptocurrency listed on the American version of Binance or Coinbase is his company’s number one priority.


The entrepreneur was responding to tweets from Tron enthusiasts on Aug. 9, with some claiming that investors were concerned that United States citizens will be unable to trade TRX on Binance.


Alarm bells also sounded after TRX was absent from a list of 30 digital assets being explored for the upcoming launch of Binance’s U.S. marketplace.

SteemMonsters reached 247k visits in July 2019!

There is an important difference between total visitors to a site and unique ones. In this case the 247k include the multiple times a person visited the website.

Therefore, as a good Steemian you probably connect everyday which will make you count for a total of 30 visits.

Therefore, how many “unique users” does SteemMonsters has?

This is a very important question that I will try to answer later on. According to the Beta Analysis from the website I use to compile these datas, it is c.30,6k in July (compared to an average of c.20k over the past 18 months) !

🗞 IBM Files Patent for a Blockchain-Based Web Browser

A new patent application from IBM describes a blockchain-based web browser.


Filed on August 6 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office, IBM’s patent is for a web browser backed by a peer-to-peer network.


The browser collects pre-specified information from web browsing sessions, according to the patent. The information is then transferred to a network of peer-to-peer nodes for collection and storage. Information collection depends on the type of browsing experience chosen. Browsing on a work computer versus a personal browser would demand different settings, for example. 


Types of potentially storable session information include what websites one visits, bookmarks, task performance, geolocation, plugin installation, and security patches. 
As the company states, a blockchain-based browser “affords a system for storing browsing information such that privacy is preserved and places privacy in the ‘hands of a user’ rather than a third party.”

Here is the current chart :

So the Bounce is still in progress on STEEM like on most of the altcoin. Let’ see if we will be able to go test the resistance line at 0.21$ or if the Drop will come back before that touch. Be very carefull if we touch that resistance line but we don’t break it. It could be a pull back before the resume of the drop.
