The simple truth is that nobody can create more digital scarcity. It’s as simple as that. Your conscious self might reject the idea, but subconsciously most people understand this basic fact. And that might be the main reason why bitcoin has and will remain king. Just think about it, don’t be afraid of abstraction. Get philosophical for a second and consider this:
Once Satoshi Nakamoto discovered digital scarcity, every person that tried to replicate his ideas and create more digital scarcity, actually created less digital scarcity. Don’t look at me like that, I didn’t make the rules. That’s how scarcity works. You can’t create more of it. If you create more, it’s less scarce.
To better understand this, let’s go back to basics.
For those just tuning in, I declared myself Bitcoin’s ambassador to HackerNoon and started a BITCOIN-ONLY column in the popular tech publication. The first article, “Why BITCOIN ONLY? – Bitcoin is NOT “Crypto” accomplished the following:
It was selected as a HackerNoon Top Story, which means it was featured for approximately 24 hours in the homepage
It was also featured in Noonification, HackerNoon’s daily mailing list.
It was a trending article during the weekend.
Considering how competitive HackerNoon is, and how much content the world publishes on the platform, I would qualify the first article as a great success.
Here are some images for posterity:
This was a dispatch from Eduardo Prospero, Bitcoin’s ambassador to HackerNoon.
Cheers to the site I’m ghostwriting for. They gave me permission to share with you the best of my work.
These articles are SEO-heavy-keyword-filled-monsters.
The texts don’t have my usual flair, because that’s not what the client needed.
These are lean and mean traffic generating machines.
And they’re full of useful info if you’re looking to get into the cryptocurrency craze of 2021.
After the jump, we’ll discuss: Binance, Coinbase, Kraken, Bittrex, and Coinmama. Which of these cryptocurrency exchanges is better for you? We’ll talk about Ripple and the XRP, about Lumen and its Stellar, and of course about the king and queen of the ball: Bitcoin and Ethereum. As a bonus we’ll feature the Verge coin, is it the new hot investment or an example of what not to do?
Get all of the answers and a lot more, after the jump:
Ladies and gentlemen, we’re floating in spaceEthereum 2.0 is here. Since the beginning of the month, the Beacon Chain is live. That’s the new blockchain that uses proof-of-stake model. It will run parallel to the first Ethereum blockchain, guaranteeing continuity of service.
As an update for those in the know, the cryptocurrency exchange Kraken released a service for Ethereum staking. It forms pools together users who want to participate in the process and helps them validate transactions as a unit. In just four days, users deposited 100K in Ether. That’s more than $60 million at current ETH prices.
If you are my client as Alt Asset Allocation is, you can expect me to go the extra mile and do my best for our posts to get maximum traffic. I can’t guarantee or even offer that we’ll get featured on Hackernoon, this was a one time deal. It came to be because the topic was so interesting for the general public.
So hey, hire me to write about those exciting things that move the world. Maybe we can accomplish something similar.
A blog that nowadays is nothing less than my living and breathing CV. Even though the weird articles I published at the beginning are getting far more traffic, I’m trying to keep this space nice and clean for my prospective clients.
I’m not sure it’s the right strategy, but it’s a strategy nonetheless. So, if you’re one of those prospective clients, consider the effort I’m making on your behalf. And hire me –> mcdcccs @ gmail . com
I’ve been so busy that I forgot to tell you all that a new crypto article by yours truly was published. This time I tackle Ethereum, the world’s second-biggest cryptocurrency by market capitalization. I explain what “staking” is, how the proof-of-stake mechanism works, and try to determine if it’s a sound investment to participate in the new ecosystem. It’s a pretty didactic article, you don’t need to know much about the subject to understand it.
I’m so busy that this time I can’t even craft lame jokes for the introduction. It has come to this.
But anyway, Is “staking” a risk-free, guaranteed investment? Find out in the real article, or get a taste after the jump:
Boom! Another smoking hot crypto article published, to end the year with a bang. I want this topic to be my niche and the magic is taking hold. I just need to publish a hundred more throughout 2020 and my reputation will be solidified. So, you know, hire me.
This time I tackled a familiar subject that all of the experts have analyzed, and summarized and explained in the simplest way. It’s supported by the most credible sources and it lights up all the green lights in the Yoast SEO plugin. So, you know, victory!
But anyway, what will happen when all Bitcoins are mined? Find out in the real article, or get a taste after the jump:
LOL, I can’t believe it took me so long to publish this here, it happened more than a month ago. Arguably my biggest accomplishment since I started writing in English, I got published in Hacker Noon. This site is a daily check for me and there I am, among their pages, among their contributors.
I want to keep writing for them, keep the momentum going, but my aim is to write about cryptocurrencies from a user perspective and I already spent all of my Bitcoin. And that’s where the story starts:
I sold all my bitcoins before the latest stage of the crypto winter.
I’m not proud of it and I’m not a seer, I was just broke and hungry. That money was my safety net and now I’m free falling into the abyss, but that’s neither here nor there. The point is I’m not a Bitcoin owner anymore. And cryptocurrencies seem to be falling into the abyss…
Then I go into my usual conspiracy-minded-type-of-argument:
I don’t claim to know exactly what’s happening, I’m as confused as the authors of the articles about the crash I’ve been reading. What I do know is that Bitcoin’s economy is not strong enough yet and it’s still vulnerable to attacks and manipulation.
Intrigue, prestidigitation, dirty tricks. An attack, that is how I see this crash and that is how I see the boom and super high climb of 2017. That shit wasn’t natural and this isn’t either. Dark forces are playing with our heads and with our money supply, testing our behavior, watching us run for our lives. And taking notes.
I’m sorry to inform you all that Bitcoin, and cryptocurrencies in general, are a trap. And that’s the main reason why they’ll succeed. That’s all you need to know, but do read on if you need details: Continue reading →
