Research-the-lack-of-uniform-terminology-for-the-cryptocurrency Research: the lack of uniform terminology for the cryptocurrency industry

According to a study by the Cambridge Alternative Finance Center (CCAF), the various key terms in the cryptocurrency industry often interchanged and not clearly defined which makes global regulation difficult. Conducted with the support of the Nomura Research Institute (NRI), the Research provides a detailed analysis of the regulatory framework for cryptoassets in 23 jurisdictions. The data collected mainly through desk research from November 2018 to early February 2019, the report says.

Nuvo-Cashs-blockchain-network-decentralizing-Africa

It comes as a surprise to most people that the network we know as the "world-wide web" is in many ways not world-wide at all. For instance, platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram have long been banned in the People's Republic of China1 - which was followed by a ban of WhatsApp in 20172. Another example is general access to the Internet in Eritrea, where less than 1.18% of the population of over 4.4 million people uses the Internet3. More shockingly, a 2016 study by Cambridge University revealed that more than sixty countries engage in some form of state-sponsored censorship of the Internet4. With several forms of social advances relying on unencumbered access to the Internet, many parts of the world are being left in the dark if they cannot access news or information and communicate with their peers in the same way that most others can.

Wences-Casares-Bitcoin-in-investment-portfolio Wences Casares | Head of Xapo

According to the head of Xapo, the rate of the first cryptocurrency may well reach $ 1 million in a specified period of time. If Bitcoin disappears, then the loss will be only $ 100,000.

Winnie-Lingham-the-start-of-Bitcoin-major-bull-run Winnie Lingham | Head of Civic

Winnie Lingham, general partner of Multicoin Capital and the head of Civic, believes that if the Bitcoin rate rises above $ 6.200, this will signal the beginning of a new cycle in the bull market.
