Square Quietly Launches Program For CBD Cannabis Company Credit Card Processing | May 22 2019
Companies that sell cannabis products—even those consisting of CBD derived from hemp, which was legalized in the U.S. through the Farm Bill late last year—are continuing to have trouble accessing basic financial services that are available to businesses in other sectors. That includes being able to maintain bank accounts and process their customers' credit cards. “Square is currently conducting an invite-only beta for some CBD products,” a spokesperson for the company said in an email. When asked about the reasons for the launching the new program, which comes after years of refusing to work with CBD companies, the spokesperson said that the company closely watches evolving public policies and strives to create new opportunities for clients.
Square Spends $20 to Acquire Each New Cash App User | May 16, 2019
Square's (NYSE: SQ) Cash App has grown to become a meaningful contributor to the company's top-line growth. The peer-to-peer payments app turned financial multitool is the No. 1 driver of its subscription and services segment, management said at the J.P. Morgan Global Technology, Media and Communications Conference. During that conference, CFO Amrita Ahuja noted the company's per-customer acquisition cost for Cash App is about $20. That's actually quite low relative to other financial services, and even compared to other apps.
Square’s AI Platform Could Transform SQ Stock | May 13, 2019
Eloquent Labs is the developer of Elle, which can converse intelligently with a customer through a conventional online-chat platform without any human input from the service provider.

Square's Bitcoin Platform Remains Surprisingly Profitable | May 7, 2019
Square's bitcoin revenue accounted for 6.8% of its net revenue during the first quarter, compared to 5.1% in the prior year quarter. However, Square's bitcoin profits only accounted for about 0.2% of its gross profit during the quarter, versus less than 0.1% a year earlier. Square's bitcoin business won't move the needle anytime soon, but its top and bottom line growth is impressive, especially since bitcoin shed roughly 40% of its value over the past 12 months. If bitcoin's price rises again and it attracts more buyers, Square's bitcoin revenue and gross profits could surge much higher.
Instead of viewing Square's bitcoin platform as a separate business, investors should see it as part of the company's long-term plan to lock users into its Cash App. Cash is one of the top peer-to-peer payment apps in the U.S. alongside PayPal's (NASDAQ: PYPL) Venmo and the bank-based Zelle, and it's still growing rapidly. Last quarter Square stated that its Cash App payment volume rose nearly 2.5 times annually. For comparison, PayPal stated that Venmo's payment volume rose 73% annually in its most recent quarter.
How Square's Cash App Makes Money (SQ) | May 6, 2019
Square makes money from Cash App by charging businesses transaction fees for using its software. For a 1.5% transaction fee, individual users can expedite deposits to have them transferred immediately into their bank accounts instead of waiting the standard deposit time. They can also send personal payments from credit cards for a 3% transaction fee.

Why Square Is Hiring Cryptocurrency Experts | April 3, 2019
Square (SQ) has announced a plan to hire several cryptocurrency experts. Square’s crypto team will work on an open-source initiative as part of the company’s contribution to the development of a cryptocurrency ecosystem. Although Square says the crypto team it’s planning to create won’t focus on its commercial interests, the company still stands to benefit if the team’s efforts lead to the broader uptake of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin. Square operates a cryptocurrency exchange that allows users of its Cash App to buy and sell Bitcoin. In the fourth quarter, Square’s Bitcoin business generated $52.4 million in revenue, up from $43 million in the third quarter. Square is already making a small profit from its Bitcoin business even though the overall business is still seeing losses.

A slightly overboard response to my threat model.

For what I hope are obvious reasons, I don't want, and probably will never post my threat model publicly online. However, regardless of that, what I'm sure you will extrapolate from this post is that I live my life, digitally in particular, with a fairly high level threat model. This is not because I'm some super sophisticated criminal mastermind, but rather, I am at this level because I genuinely love playing around with this stuff. And I just happen to understand the importance of privacy and just how vital it is to a truly healthy society. I would like to extend a thanks to ProgressiveArchitect for the sharing of the knowledge they have done on this subreddit, /privacytoolsio, and the like. We may have never interacted, but nevertheless, your input into this community is truly interesting and extremely informative and educating. I'm sure those of you familiar with PA's setup will be able to draw some parallels with mine and their's.
Thank you.
I hope you all enjoy reading this write up.
I run Qubes OS on a Lenovo ThinkPad X230 laptop. Specs for it are as following: - i7-3520M - 16GB RAM - 1TB Samsung 860 Evo SSD - Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 wireless card
Additionally, I used a Raspberry Pi Model 3B+ and a Pomono SPI clip to replace the stock BIOS firmware with coreboot+me_cleaner. This wasn't done out of any "real" concern for the Intel ME (though of course proprietary black-boxes like it should be avoided at all costs and not trusted), but rather for open source enthusiasm and for increased security and faster boot times than what the stock BIOS firmware allows for. On that note about the ME, I don't believe the conspiracy theories that claim that it is a state-sponsored attack method for surveillance. I believe that Intel had good intentions for improving the lives of IT professionals who need to manage hundreds, if not thousands of remote machines. However, it has proven time and time again to be insecure, and I don't need the remote management and the "features" that it provides on my machines.
In Qubes, I use a combination of AppVMs and StandaloneVMs for a variety of different purposes. All VMs use PVH over HVM, except for the Mirage Unikernel Firewall, which uses PV, and the sys-net and sys-usb StandaloneVMs which have to use HVM because of PCI device passthrough. Right now most of my VMs are AppVMs, but for maintenance and compartmentalization reasons, I am considering moving more towards StandaloneVMs, despite the increase in disk space and bandwidth usage for updates.
General route of from Qubes to the Internet for anonymous browsing, general private browsing, accessing Uni services, and Uni-related anonymous browsing respectively: 1. Qubes->sys-mirage-firewall->sys-vpn-wg->sys-corridor->sys-whonix->whonix-ws-15-dvm to the internet. 2. Qubes->sys-mirage-firewall->sys-vpn-wg to the Internet. 3. Qubes->sys-mirage-firewall->uni-vpn-wg to the Internet. 4. Qubes->sys-mirage-firewall->uni-vpn-wg->uni-corridor->uni-whonix->uni-anon-research to the Internet.

(Note: the VPN name is substituted in the "vpn" above. I had to remove it to comply with this subreddit's rules. It is easy to identify what VPN it is as it randomly generates a long numaric string and has fantastic support for WireGuard.)

Web Browsers: - Tor Browser (primary) in a disposable Whonix VM. - Firefox (secondary) with the about:config changes listed on privacytools.io and the following extensions: Cookies AutoDelete, Decentraleyes, HTTPS Everywhere, uBlock Origin (advance user, all third party content blocked and JavaScript disabled), and Vim Vixen. Used in my personal AppVM. - Ungoogled Chromium (Uni only) with standard uBlock Origin and cVim. Used only for Uni-related access in my uni-campus and uni-home AppVMs.
Search Engine: SearX, Startpage, and DuckDuckGo.
Password Manager: KeePassXC.
Office: LibreOffice.
Notes: Standard Notes.
Messaging: Signal Desktop.
Media Playback: mpv.
Emails: I access my personal email within my personal Qubes domain and my Uni email using my Uni Qubes domains. My emails are downloaded to a local repository using isync, send using msmtp, and read using neomutt with html emails converted to plain text using w3m. Emails are sent in plain text too. All of the attachments in the emails (PDFs mostly) are automatically opened in DisposableVMs.
My personal Posteo email account has incoming encryption setup. This means that I emailed my public GPG key to an address correlated to my actual Posteo email address so that all email that I receive is encrypted with my public key and can only be decrypted using my private key. So even if my emails were intercepted and/or my account broken into, the contents of them are safe since they are encrypted as soon as they hit Posteo's servers.
I have setup a number of Posteo aliases that are completely segregated from the email I used to register my account. One of those is considered my "professional" email for my current job. I have another couple aliases, one dedicated for 33mail and another dedicated for Abine Blur. I make use of 33mail alias addresses for catch-all email addresses for registering for accounts that need to be under a username associated with my name anyways. This is for purposes like putting different compartmentalized, but still related emails to put onto my Resume. I use a different alias for each Resume I put out online. That way, when that information gets sold, traded, etc., I can easily trace it back to who sold the information. For example, if I applied for a job online that required me to go through the process of registering an account through a third-party, say 'xyz Inc', the address I would register that account with would be [email protected], or something along those lines. Abine Blur is used much in the same manner but for accounts that don't need to be associated with my real name in any way, say online shopping on Amazon that I do under an many aliases, then ship to various address that I don't live at, but that I can visit with no problems. I use a different Blur address with each service like with 33mail for the same reasoning shown above.
The passwords for the accounts are encrypted and stored locally in each of the domains, however, my private key is stored in my vault domain, so even if an adversary were to compromise the domains, they wouldn't be able to steal my private key without exploiting the hypervisor. They would only be able to wait for me to authorize the usage of my private key in that domain, and even then, it could only be used to decrypt files. That is a concern that they can use my private key to decrypt messages, but they wouldn't be able to steal the key. With my personal email, the emails would also be encrypted locally anyway so they wouldn't be able to read them. My Uni email, in contrast, uses Outlook unfortunately, so there isn't any option to enable incoming encryption, and even if it was, I'm not sure how private it would be anyways.
For those looking for an in depth list of all my VMs, with explanations for the more obscure ones, I have listed them below. I have got a lot of templates, hence why I am considering moving over to StandaloneVMs, but as of right now:

Templates:

StandaloneVMs:

AppVMs:

Phone: Motorola Moto G5s running Lineage OS 16.0 Pie no G-Apps or micro-G with the following Apps: - AdAway: Open Source hosts file-based ad blocker. (Requires root.) - AFWall+: Linux iptables front end. (Requires root.) - Amaze: File manager. - andOPT: 2FA app. I like it since it can export the entries to an AES encrypted file. - AntennaPod: Podcast manager. - AnySoftKeyboard - Simple Calendar - Simple Contacts Pro - DAVx5: CalDav syncronization with my calendar on my Posteo email account. - F-Droid - Fennec F-Droid: Web Browser. Has the same Firefox addons like on Qubes minus Vim Vixen. I used the app Privacy Settings to configure the about:config. - KeePassDX: Password manager. - KISS launcher - Magisk Manager - NewPipe: YouTube app replacement. - S.Notes: Standard Notes. - OsmAnd~: Maps and navigation. - Red Moon: Blue light filter. - SELinuxModeChanger: Exactly as it sounds. (Requires root.) - Shelter: Work profile manager. - Signal: Messaging. - Vinyl Music Player: Music player. - WireGuard: VPN protocol frontend. Is configured to use my VPN account. Is setup as an always-on and connected VPN.
As mentioned, I use Shelter to manage my work profile. In it I isolate the following apps: - Clover: *chan browser. - Orbot: For routing apps through Tor. Is setup as an always-on and connected VPN. - RedReader: Reddit client. - Tor Browser
Over the last several years, I have started using my phone less and less and taking advantage of less of what it has got to offer. I don't check email on my device. I have no real need to browse the Internet on it outside of watching videos using NewPipe, browsing Reddit, and various *chan boards.
On the Smart Phone side of things, I am considering purchasing an older used iPhone SE or 6S for use with MySudo when outside of my home as well as an iPod Touch for use on WiFi only for use inside my home. The iPhone would be kept inside of a faraday bag when I am at home and not using it. It would also be kept in the faraday bag whenever at home to avoid associating that device with my home address. The iPod Touch would be used for MySudo calls instead.
Future outlook and plan for my privacy and security:
To avoid as much deanonymisation of my privacy as possible, I'm only going to specify enough so that anyone reading this can get the jist of my situation in life. I am quite young (age 16 to 25) and I started along this privacy journey when I was even younger. I was never a very heavy social media user, however I did have an online presence if you looked hard enough. My name fortunately is a very common and short name, so that does help to bury information that I was not able to remove further in the vast trenches that is the Internet.
On the digital side of things, I mentioned that I have a dedicated Crypto AppVM for handling crypto currency transactions using Bisq. I have setup a dedicated bank account that I have periodically been transferring money into so that I can trade crypto. Unfortunately, I do not live in the US, so being able to effectively start trades with others is more difficult. I also do not have access to a credit card masking account like privacy.com (that I absolutely would use given the ability). I plan on getting an anonymous VPS to host my own Tor exit node for better speeds and to mitigate the possibility of malicious exit nodes. The country I live in has been a proponent of absolute dragnet surveillance on all activities occurring online and in real life, though the former is far more visible on this subreddit. I will be using crypto with cleaned Bitcoin (as seen with ProgressiveArchitect's setup) for purchasing my VPN service, etc.
With future hardware, to replace my aging laptop, I am very hopeful for Xen, then eventually Qubes OS getting ported to Power9. When that happens I'll be getting a Raptor Computing Blackbird as a desktop. Maybe in the future I'll get a Purism Librem laptop, but for now my corebooted X230 works perfectly for my use cases. On that note, I have successfully build the Heads firmware for the X230 and I was able to get the minimal 4MB image flashed on my laptop. I did revert it back to my coreboot setup after playing around a little with it, and unfortunately I haven't had time since to do a full, complete flash of it.
On the physical/real life side of things, I plan on making use of various Trusts in order to hold assets, say to keep my name from being immediately visible on the title of my car. As of right now I am fortunate enough to have the title of my car under the name of someone who I trust. Unless I am legally required, and where there are immediate and absolute consequences, I use fake names in real life. With Uni, I am enrolled under my real name and address. This is a requirement and it is verified, so there is nothing that I can realistically do about it. As for other services, I plan on setting up a personal mailbox (PMB), etc if possible to use as a real, physical address that is associated with my real name and that is used for things like Government issued ID. In the future when I move again, I plan on renting a place in cash to try and keep my name dissociated with my real address. For those looking for reasoning on why one would want to do that, please read How to be Invisible by J.J. Luna. It's truly the Bible of physical privacy.
At this stage I am just going off on a ramble, so I should cut it short here.
I have just started and I live for this shit.

Educate Yourself - My Top Picks for news sources, YouTube channels, and podcasts

Why do I need to know what is going on in the world of cryptocurrency and blockchain? I'm just here to trade and make money.
I saw someone post a couple of days ago about how they have held Ethereum for a while, but had recently "done some research" and discovered that Ethereum was Turing complete and that "surely this must be one of Ethereum's most important features." At that moment, I realized how many people who post here have no idea what the hell they are talking about. If this post can help us become collectively smarter and more informed, and thereby elevate the quality of the discussion in this community, then it will have served its purpose.
If you want to get smart on any topic, you need to learn and keep learning from others who are knowledgeable. Things evolve incredibly quickly in the world of crypto and it is very easy to fall out of the loop on the latest happenings. Since most of you have money on the line (in the form of ETH holdings), that should be all of the incentive you need to stay informed. Every effective traditional investor I have ever met researches the hell out of every stock they buy (before they buy it), but also keeps in the know on every major development that company and its competitors have. This is doubly important in the world of crypto where markets can move much faster and the potential for scams and major disruption are much higher.
But what about ethtrader? Can't I just get all of my news here?
Getting all your news from ethtrader (especially the Daily) is like getting all of your news while standing in line at the grocery store, talking to other people who are reading the National Enquirer. Sure, you may happen upon a useful tidbit of knowledge, but you may also get wrong info that leads you to make bad decisions if you are not informed. But one thing is for sure: it is entertaining.
My Top 5 News Source Picks
There is no TL;DR for developing real wisdom and insight. Start reading full articles on a regular basis for topics related to crypto/blockchain. At a minimum, put the sites below into a folder on your browser's bookmarks tab and open them daily. Or get an RSS reader and make sure you methodically read every single article that comes out on these sites. Newsify is a great RSS reader for iOS users. For either iOS or Android, you could check out Feedly.
Honorable Mentions: You may also want to check out TrustNodes, but their content feels a bit more editorial-ish. There are also many great posts from devs on Medium. Sign up for an account and they'll start e-mailing you some good picks based upon your reading history.
My Top 5 YouTube Channel Picks
Honestly, there are so many YouTube channels these days, I can't keep up with them. I'll often watch the suggested content from YouTube as a way to discover new vloggers.
Honorable Mentions: Love him or hate him, you can't ignore Andreas...good for quick hits on crypto-philosophy. Real Crypto recently caught my attention as well, with excellent quality TA. Chris Dunn is also very well-established and solid for TA. DataDash is also very informative for ICO analysis and TA. I also like MrYukonC, who is a mod here and talks about topics from this sub on occasion. He only posts when he has something to say (which is fairly episodically), but I think that is a good thing.
My Top 3 Podcast Picks
I only have time to listen to so many podcasts, but here are the three that I listen to on a regular basis.
Honorable Mention: Many folks also mentioned that they like the Ether Review, which I also listen to when the topic is of interest.
That's it. Hope you all found that helpful. If you have any information sources you'd recommend, please share them!
EDIT: Made a few corrections and added two additional sources I left out initially.

I created a website where Bitcoin traders and investors could go to get easy access to datasets and trading tools. This platform would be tailored to folks who prefer to do analysis within spreadsheets such as Excel and Google Sheets.

https://spreadstreet.io
My name is John, and back in February of this year I started working on a website where Bitcoin traders and investors could go to get easy access to datasets and trading tools (such as technical analysis templates). This platform would require no coding knowledge, and would be tailored to folks who prefer to do analysis within spreadsheets such as Excel and Google Sheets.
Quick About Me
I am a former Fortune 500 financial analyst, where I managed two $3 billion portfolios. I've been investing/trading since 2002/2003. If you take a look at my kindle cloud reader, you will see over 100 books dedicated to trading and investing of all sorts - technical analysis, fundamental analysis, daily options trading strategies, value investing, volatility trading, quantitative trading, algorithmic trading, and bullshit trading.
I think Bitcoin and crypto is the future, and I believe that it is on an unstoppable path. My ultimate goal is to become a cost-leader in the field, and be tailored towards the individual investor. You shouldn't have to pay hundreds to thousands of dollars for top-notch tools.
Features at a Glance
Databases currently included (updated daily)
All datasets are available as a tab-delimited, CSV file. The datasets are a mix between raw tick data, OHLCV, spreads, mining and economic statistics. They can be used for backtesting, analysis, and charting.
Investing/Trading Templates
On The Horizon
Potential Ideas
I'm open to answer questions or talk more about the project if there's interest. Hope it helps the traders and investors out there.

A list of open-source (and Material designed) alternatives to some common apps

With privacy and elegance in mind, here's a list of apps that you might want to use as an alternative to some of the shady apps that are out there. Most have Play Store links, but a few need to be downloaded from F-Droid (you can download the APK directly or via the F-Droid client).
My criteria for this list was:
  1. Open-source
  2. Material Design
Granted, a few of the apps do not follow the Material Design guidelines, but given the alternatives, I think they should be on this list.
This list is not complete, of course, so feel free to suggest other open-source apps that you use.

Open Letter to Glenn Greenwald and James Risen of theIntercept, on the VERY DISHONEST ARTICLE about the church committee

Dear Mr. Glenn Greenwald,
I don't see how you could still be a contributor to theIntercept, alongside deepstate establishmentarian defenders such as Scahill and James Risen. Their work has infuriated me 100% of the time in the last 2 yrs because I know it's fake news. It's gaslighting. I'm CC-ing him so he knows the mistake he made also. https://theintercept.com/2018/12/08/george-hw-bush-cia-directo
and the intelligence community collaborated to gin up outrage over a fake national security scandal that ultimately helped pull Bush across the finish line
Risen's latest article, which I read to be calling the Church Committee to be "a fake intelligence scandal" used by George HW Bush to gain power in DC to be one of THE most dishonest things a so-called "journalist" has ever said in any publication, anywhere. And I believe--if I know you, Mr. Greenwald--you will likely agree this is a completely unfair and even injurious characterization of the committee and an attempt to "reimagine history" in such a way as to defend against what is coming down the pike, legally. Spygate
These things are dishonest because they rely on the ignorance your readers have of the law and the powers of Congress: congress does not have law enforcement capabilities. They cannot prosecute. They only have discovery ability. Learn how the government works, Risen. Assassinations aren't fake. Illegal spying on citizens isn't fake. Human experimentation and MKULTRA isn't fake (present tense because it is on ongoing, and you're possibly a victim, Risen)
Also, anyone who tries to pain Nunes (or Gowdy, Goodlatte) as a bad guy because you don't like his politics, is in my opinion, a very bad guy. Nunes was doing his job in informing the President of important national security information; for this he's accused of being a traitor, because the assumption-before-the-fact that Trump is a traitor implies anyone who assists him is also.
That said, in my opinion, anyone who tries to defend the anti-rights / authoritarian actions of the intelligence community--especially TODAY--is a very bad guy. My bitcoin mining rig was destroyed by the NSA. My routers have been hacked by the deepstate several times and I am sick of it. I know it's because I'm on the 'wrong side of the intelligence community'--I oppose them as an influencer online and for that I am constantly harassed. I'm just one person, this is happening to millions via AI software--and that is against my rights of free speech.
The intelligence community has made enormous mistakes, and the average person and their rights to privacy, security and liberty have been greviously harmed. There are laws against this--deprivation of rights under color of law--but this law, is strangely ignored
Many of the illegalities of the CIA and intelligence community generally are ignored. You dig into why these aren't 4th amendment violations, you inevitably end up at Continuity of Government being STILL active (since 9/11) and you can go no further. Because that is your answer.
Not acknowledging the role of Congress versus the role of the Executive, and not acknowledging COG is dihonest. Being a digital rights related news organization, ostensibly, I don't get where the INtercept is coming from, defending these goons.
It's very transparent that your coworker James Risen is taking yellow journalistic swipes as a dead guy any honest person could agree was a gaslighting globalist fascist demon (possibly even an actual nazi when you dig into family history) and entirely not the saint painted by a nominally leftist MSM, in order to "manage public opinion in the process of diffusing the forthcoming revelations of spygate"
I have to wonder if we the so-called populists (or as I like to say ex bernie sanders supporter) have to do a deep dive of research on James Risen himself and look into HIS entanglements, because this isn't journalism: This is malicious history reimagineering: and it is greatly harming Americans by harming their understanding of reality itself. Painting people who take away your rights (we used to call them 'nazis') as somehow 'good', because you know "F Trump"--we're desperate to get rid of him because if we don't.....50 yrs of protecting these guys will be revealed and Uh Oh! We were complicit in covering up 9/11. Eep!
So. I want you to know that I stopped HIllary Clinton from becoming president, along with many others. Reddit has been credited for that. You're welcome. That's what you get for stealing the primary from Sanders, stealing my campaign contributions, oh and running a global child trafficking ring out of clinton foundtation. Truth be told, in our choices, we were dealt a bad hand in 2016. I still think we came out ahead. And if you do your research and your'e honest, you WILL TOO.
Clinton Foundation is about to be indicted not just for charity fraud. Not just for racketeering. Not just for extortion. But for child sex trafficking. A rogue faction of the CIA that coordinates with rogue factions of NATO--which we call 'the deepstate' generallly, has been doing all the things we find repugnant and that have undermined america: trafficking of contraband, including but not limited to drugs, arms, people and organs....and childen.
They left--including TheINTERCEPT apparently--can screech "conspiracy theorist' all they want, but you and I know the truth because your'e a journalist and I am also, though in my case, as a ghost contributor to 2 less popular but apparently very influential blogs. You and I also know the Church committee was not a fake scandal
It's wildly dishonest to 'reimagine' the "church committee" by painting as "fake" because this committee didn't result in legislation or criminal indictments--that just means the bad guys won
Just like Iran Contra, just like Hillary and Bill being able to get away with enormous crimes, just like 9/11's unpunished crimes (that is changing as of this month--911 lawyers have received US fed court approval for a fed grand jury (re) investigation of explosives used in wtc 1, 2, 7); just like SO many other egregious violations. It's similarly dishonest to call Trey Gowdy a fake for not indicting Hillary or anyone related to Benghazi despite his revelating.
These things are dishonest because they rely on the ignorance your readers have of the law and the powers of Congress
I can tell you this: there is not an RSS link for ONLY GREENWALD articles that I know of. If you could send me one, I'd be very thankful. Because Glenn Greenwald articles seem to be the last remaining ones at theIntercept that haven't been infected by the mainstream media's drive to gaslight the public into consenting to unlawfully ignore the other side in the process of deposing president Trump. Whether or not you like Trump is irrelevant. What they are doing is immoral. Period.
Your co-contributors are destroying journalism. I guess I could have just said that instead of this long screed
If you read it, thank you. I want you to know that I've valued your opinion and I'm very grateful that there's still some good journalists out there.

I have to take these out because reddit likes to say I'm doxxing...even if I myself posted my own information

Easy data sorting and news aggregation helps a crypto enthusiast help and research cryptocurrencies and analyze major price changes. Instant push notification helps one keep up with market trends.

About The UI

The app interface is sleek and intuitive. The homepage includes a list of different articles with a 1 sentence preview. A “cliff notes” version synopsis is available just a click away which allows a user to read through dozens of articles in minutes. If you want to read the full version of an article, that is also just another click away from where you’re redirected to the originating source. You’re also given the ability to vote whether or not you felt the article had bullish or bearish sentiment, while also seeing how the rest of the community perceived it.
The middle tab takes you to market charts where you’re then able to filter news by currency. Simply click on the currency you want to see the news for and start reading articles under the news tab.
The App has 2 attractive feature for the reader:
  1. Instant News Feed – users get their news in real-time. This is enhanced on Berminal by the translation and writing abilities of dedicated writers, as well as the speed and effectiveness of their crawler engine.
  2. TLDR (Too Long Didn’t Read) – in the current age of social media, long articles hardly get read all the way. The app provides a summarized ‘cliff notes’ version of full articles. This gives users the ability to read 10 articles at the same time it takes to read one.
Berminal is a must have app for anyone with an interest in cryptocurrencies. It is a one-stop-shop app you need to stay up-to-date on news, developments, and industry trends while on the go or at your computer. It’s available for download for free now in the App Store and Google Play Store.

Why a brand new cryptocurrency user(like me) fell in love with Dogecoins?

Hi everyone, let me introduce myself: I'm Fabrice from Belgium, I'm 34 and working IT in a transportation company. My mother language is french so please understand that I may make mistakes :)
I started to be interested in cryptocurrencies a few weeks ago... Or maybe it was last year, when I read an article about all the bad things bitcoin did to the world with the massive farming, ... and how I wanted something else for that kind of concept.
Having no knowledge at all about how cryptocurrencies worked, I started to think of something that seems so technically wrong now, I definitely wanted a currency which makes people better, the world better, accessible to anyone and still having cash value for those who are interested in that aspect.
To summarize my idea, it was something like this: - Everyone would start with ten coins of that virtual currency named Kharmacoin (don't laugh!) with no value and give them to other users for helpful forum posts, services and such. - If they want to get more than the 10 initial coins (10 other coins), they have to validate these initial coins by putting a cash value on them (paying what they think the help they had was worth). That cash value is added to a pool and shared between every activated coin. So if you take two people, one puts a 2 dollar value on each coin and someone else a 1 dollar value, the coin would be worth 1.5 dollar. - To keep the value increasing, everytime someone wants to buy another pack of 10 coins, he should pay a little more than the last time. - Transactions should be limited to 1 coin per service/post/... and the money should be put to good use. The only way to get a lot of it would be: To pay more and more and more to get them 10 by 10 or to earn them by being nice to others.
That idea relied a lot on my faith in humans and has certainly a lot of flaws in it (mathematically and technically speaking). I've put a lot of thoughts in it but I never could finish writing the file for a friend whose work is to help students getting their startups up and running.
But, let's come back to Dogecoins: That idea of mine was put aside for almost a year, I still wasn't interested in cryptocurrencies. In fact, less than one month ago, I knew there were Bitcoins and Litecoins, I wasn't aware of the existence of any other alt currencies. Clueless people like me are all around me, even IT colleagues who use computers everyday don't know anything about how it works, and people whose only computer use is to take a look on Facebook once in a while don't even know this exists. I asked around me what people knew about Bitcoins, a few of them said that they've heard about it on tv once, and the most interested people looked at it like it was a Microsoft share they didn't buy on time, that share having turned into something they simply can't afford today.
Right now, someone who has no knowledge or interest in cryptocurrencies will most likely not hear about them at all, except in rare cases.
So, how did I knew about Dogecoins myself then?
My RSS Reader is full of humor, PC and Xbox One games, VR, international news, developer and security news, nothing money related. But as greek economy is hugely important to anyone living in Europe, I read as many articles as I could during the crisis. One was about the use of cryptocurrencies by some people to avoid the damages done to the greek economy. It made me think of many things which seem to be correlated and shaping the future. The end of capitalism as we know it, the end of full time jobs(replaced by services on demand), a world where every people would have to please others instead of acting alone selfishly. That imperfect idea of mine could have a future after all.
And that's when I found The coin, Dogecoin.
As I read the articles depicting the community behind it, the Doge4water and the 2 other sport related successes, I began to realize that the money I imagined existed already and that all the efforts I could make to shape things like they should could be done with something already successful. I also read about the downs of the Dogecoin(such bad past events :( ) but with all the positive things (the actual ones and the future ones I expect), it doesn't really matter. I'm convinced that Dogecoins is the future of cryptocurrencies, I want it to be.
What can I do to help the Dogecoin?
That's the question I'm asking myself right now, as a brand new "recruit" coming from the real(old) world, I can't do a lot but I already started to promote the Dogecoins by writing some articles on my blog in French (one explaining how easily it is to open a wallet and get the first coins in it with the help of faucets that I just discovered myself). Not so many people were interested around me at first but those who were simply fell in love with the coins and everything around it. I then proposed my help to friends who don't know how to start even with my instructions, more of them came into the world of Dogecoins.
They still don't know what they're doing or why but they use faucets and find it simply fun (faucets are a great idea to get new people addicted).
Now if I could open a wallet online and print a paper + explain to whoever I give it what it's all about, I'd do it for my family and some friends (maybe it is possible, I didn't look into it yet, the idea just popped in my head).
What I want to do in the future...
I'm very excited by the Dogecoin Foundation and what it has accomplished so far, it's a pleasure to read that they want to evolve in a more open way, the Dogecoin success will rely on the things that are made with it, that's the things made with it which made me choose this coin among all available. I'm a mobile and html 5 developer in my free time, still looking for a reliable cryptocurrency payment API and an easier way to copy/paste a wallet ID on mobile :).
If I can be of any help to any one of you it would be a pleasure. I'm already working on ideas and projects which would promote the Dogecoin to new people, use it as a charity tool or encourage education by rewarding people wishing to learn new skills.
I'm happy to be a part of your community, I didn't feel so motivated in years!
To the moon!

Why Bitcoin Now: Michael Casey and Niall Ferguson on How Bitcoin Fits in the History of Money Ep.181 Bitcoin MEGA DUMP!! $7000 NEXT?!! Sell-Off Reasons Explained ft Nugget's News Bitcoin News Roundup for July 16, 2020 Rss Reader intro Bitcoin News/Price Update; Weekend Edition: June 20

Slashdot reader Charlotte Web quotes Mashable: Three years ago on this date, on July 17, 2017, McAfee, the eccentric founder of the antivirus software company bearing his name, made the bet of a lifetime.McAfee made a bet that in three years a single bitcoin (1 BTC) would be worth $500,000. Now while most people would throw down money to make this bet, McAfee had a very different idea. Then Bitcoin was mentioned on the popular news resource Slashdot, which provoked a 10-fold increase in its price over the next 5 days, from $0.008 to $0.08 for 1 BTC. On the same days (07.17.10) , the Mt.Gox exchange was launched, which subsequently was destined to repeatedly have a fatal influence on the cryptocurrency market. A new Bitcoin scam has been reported to use top UK celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay for reasons related to fake celebrity endorsements. Our staff of gossip columnists started to roam the internet and launched a little investigation into what seems to be a new crypto scam dubiously named “Bitcoin Champion”.
