Since its last All-Time-High (ATH) in late February, Ethereum (ETH) had a price correction of over 26%. However, there is some good news surrounding this blockchain now. More high-profile investments and adoptions might boost the currency once again soon.

For starting, we need to mention a new record, if not in price. The miner’s revenue hit an ATH last month, with over $1.3b. The mining activity saw an increase of over 16%, but the total was made of transaction fees as well, by almost 53%. …

After reaching an All-Time-High (ATH) of over $58,000 per coin, Bitcoin (BTC) faced a pronounced correction that made the price fall by over 20% and counting. The reasons aren’t very clear, but the investors taking profits are a good bet. Meanwhile, Cardano (ADA) managed to get a new record this Saturday, with over $1.48 per coin. This is the first ATH for Cardano since 2018, unlike Bitcoin.

Additionally, Cardano is now the third cryptocurrency by market capitalization. This way, surpassing other long-established altcoins like Tether (USDT), XRP, Litecoin (LTC), and Chainlink (LINK). The good news might be due to its…

On the markets

Of course, Bitcoin (BTC) is that digital thingamajig we all like, and it works for making payments and profits. But wait. Has somebody ever said what is Bitcoin, officially? Have you read it somewhere (Wikipedia doesn’t count) so far? What noun would you use? Currency? Property? Digital asset? Commodity? Decentralized money? Investment tool? Scam? Does it matter, even?

Well, if you want to stay around like a smart bitcoiner, it may matter a lot. Because a name implies duties and rights. XRP could say that very well after being classified (and sued) as a security, eh? So, what is Bitcoin…

Ripple Labs isn’t having a great time since the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued a lawsuit against them last December. From that date, numerous exchanges and other crypto-companies (like funds) have decided to stop their XRP trading. Now is the turn for another one: Ripple and Moneygram, one of the world’s largest money transfer companies, have just stopped their alliance.

They both entered into a “strategic partnership” back in 2019. This with the main purpose “to instantly settle funds from US dollars to destination currencies on a 24/7 basis”. …

Sending money internationally, that’s a remittance in basic terms. A very common case is that of the immigrants sending money to their relatives and loved ones from a country to another. That’s not always easy or cheap with traditional money, but it can be much better to make your remittances with cryptos.

Let’s talk a bit about it, previous to learning how to do it in the easiest way possible.

Issues with traditional remittances

We can start with the expenses: sending money costs more money. According to the World Bank, the average cost for making a $200 remittance is around 7%, using bank account…

We’re living now a historic time that probably no one ten years ago would’ve guessed. The bitcoin price is running quickly towards the $60k mark, having surpassed non-stop records since late 2020. We have for now an All-Time-High (ATH) of $56,240 after an over 17% increase during the last week, according to CoinMarketCap (CMC).

This is kind of no wonder since there are out there so many companies, firms, and organizations (besides the classical retail bitcoiners) interested in cryptocurrency. We already heard about the giant purchase by Elon Musk’s Tesla and the adoption by Mastercard and BNY Mellon. …
