Verasity’s VRA token increases 300% because of its Product and Sales Strategy

are millions of publishers competing with YouTube and Facebook for views. Since
most can’t compete, they add the YouTube player on their site and hope for the
best. The best is not much. YouTube and Facebook provide a pittance of revenue
in exchange for those views and therefore publishers are dying like flies.

Simply building a video sharing platform is not a solution because no matter how good the platform, who is going to bother to move off YouTube to watch a bit of content when they have a whole world of content on YouTube. Do any kids under 18 watch anything other than YouTube? Only their favorites like Walking Dead and Game of Thrones if they can’t torrent it.

What is Tether doing now?

The company behind the USDT, in fact, recognizes that it conducts banking operations with partial coverage, and possibly issues money backed up by liquidated or falling assets.

Tether again deals with its fraud. Very quietly, without trying to draw attention to this, the company changed part of the text on its website. Instead of stating that each USDT token is supported by dollar reserves in a 1: 1 ratio, a moment that has always been in doubt, because they did not allow for proper testing — now Tether writes on their official website:

Every tether is always 100% backed by our reserves, which include traditional currency and cash equivalents and, from time to time, may include other assets and receivables from loans made by T ...

Monero: Not THE Earliest Bird, and still getting the worm

Why using open-source and GPU approaches is making Monero a smart second-mover in cryptocurrency forest?

The First One gets the Oyster. The Second One gets the Shell. ORPioneers get Arrows. Settlers get the Land.

Yes, like everything in life there are two ways to look at anything. Being the first one in any space endows that brave soldier with a quiver of advantages and that much-craved thing called eponymous-brand-weight. Bitcoin is synonymous to cryptocurrency for the average layman. That counts.

But it can also mean a lot of arrows on the first person’s body.

Bitcoin did not change the way we think about money and speed of transactions. It capsized it. It came as a seismic force that totally, and unrecognizably, upended ...
