Bitcoin takes new heights, network loading and commissions grow

ICO-LINK-NEWS-.Bitcoin-takes-new-height_20171114-182147_1

The popularity of the crypto-currency markets is growing rapidly, and this is not surprising, since the price of bitcoin has risen by 60% in just one last month. However, along with the passing of the mark of 7000 dollars for BTC, the congestion of the blocks again increased, as well as the commission of the miners. This was the reason for users' displeasure with unconfirmed transactions and the need to pay 5-10 dollars per transaction. The actual cancellation of the SegWit2X's hardfork not only does not solve the crisis of scaling, but rather aggravates it, since other solutions still do not work, and even activated more than two months ago SegWit has not been put into operation to the full.

Andreas Antonopoulos: why banks call Bitcoiners

ICO-LINK-BLOG-Andreas-Antonopoulo_20171107-103108_1

Video with the speech of Andreas Antonopoulos under the name "Money as a System of Control", undoubtedly, should be watched by every follower of bitcoin. In it, Antonopoulos explains how money is used to control their senders and recipients, as well as tracking financial transactions around the world. In addition, he tells how false the banking system really is. Banks can not only freeze or confiscate money without our consent, in fact, they are the owners of our finances, we are simply granted access to them - and this, to put it mildly, is a dishonest deal. As explained by Antonopoulos, we do not have money in the bank, we have only an account that gives us access to the money that we placed in the bank, believing fake security guarantees. This situation is demonstrated by a brilliant example of the debt crisis in Greece - the entire population of the country kept savings in banks and they were insured, but one day the promise was violated and money was rendered inaccessible.
