10 Statistical Price Predictions for 10 Cryptocurrencies — January 2018

TL;DR: I simulated a 1-year movement of 10 top cryptocurrencies using an advanced statistical method called geometric Brownian motion, which you can find below. I also created a spreadsheet to simulate prices of ~24 different cryptocurrencies, which you can download here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1eUIgBowJs2NyKw7kYbx5z_VeCOxsMQdNELfbngs4XnY/copy. The sheet utilizes a paid add-in, which I provide free of cost to those who are less fortunate.

THE MYSTERY OF PRICE MOVEMENT

So, you’re sitting at your computer with money to invest.
You have made some good money already in the market, but you want more.
Cryptocurrencies have reached a record $600 billion in market value after the recovery, with the inevitable $700 billion mark right around the corner.
The price movement of top currencies remains a mystery. But it doesn’t have to be.

THE PAIN OF UNCERTAINTY

Cryptocurrencies are volatile, irrational beasts.
Simple methods of forecasting grossly oveunderestimate the potential of a volatile currency.
For example, moving averages are used frequently to estimate future prices. Moving averages, however, suffer from many pitfalls that make them poor estimators of volatile markets.
Every great and successful investor has a plan. You will add one more tool to your arsenal today.

A BETTER METHOD FOR ESTIMATING CRYPTO PRICES

In my prior article about estimating the movement of Bitcoin Prices, I spoke of a method that is used frequently in the stock world to estimate prices.
This method is a Monte Carlo simulation using the geometric Brownian motion model.
I won’t cover off on the full methodology here, but essentially I am going to:
  1. Get historical daily prices for 10 top cryptocurrencies
  2. Calculate daily returns
  3. Simulate a year
  4. Simulate a year many times
By the end of the article, you will have the following:
A note on forecasting, simulations, and recommendations: Monte Carlo simulations are to be used as guidelines and tools, not as gospel. I am not offering financial or investing advice.

BITCOIN

What is Bitcoin?

You know what Bitcoin is, stop it.

One-Year Simulation

1-Year Simulation of Bitcoin Prices and Returns

One-Year Simulated 1,000 Times

Verdict

We can be 95% certain that Bitcoin Cash prices will fall between $197, and $180,288 with a median of $4,839.

ETHEREUM

What is Ethereum?

Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third party interference.
Ethereum has been busy recently. Multiple steps have been pushed in motion for the upcoming large change — reaching a new consensus method.
From Jordan Daniel at ethnews.com:
Ethereum’s Byzantium hard fork was only one half of a two-part process designed to transition the decentralized application platform to a new method for reaching consensus — proof-of-stake. The next hard fork, called Constantinople, was recently discussed during an Ethereum core developer meeting and could include Vitalik Buterin’s Casper update.

One-Year Simulation

LITECOIN

What is Litecoin?

Litecoin’s claim to fame is faster transaction processing times. It uses a scrypt-based mining proof-of-work algorithm to target the regular computers and GPUs most people already have.
The ability to target regular computers and GPU’s happens to be a huge differentiator from the crowded mining population of Bitcoin.

One-Year Simulation

1-Year Simulation of Litecoin Prices and Returns

One-Year Simulated 1,000 Times

1-Year Litecoin Prices Simulated 1,000 times

Verdict

We can be 95% certain that Litecoin prices will fall between $42, and $12,241 with a median of $745.

OMISEGO

What is OmiseGO?

OmiseGO is building a couple of things:
  1. Decentralized exchange
  2. Liquidity provider mechanism
  3. Clearinghouse messaging network
  4. Asset-backed blockchain gateway
OmiseGO is not owned by any single one party. Instead, it is an open distributed network of validators which enforce behavior of all participants.
According to Blocknight:
Also, OmiseGo counts Vitalik Buterin (Ethereum), and Joseph Poon (Lightning Network Co Author) among their advisers. Joseph Poon is actually billed as author of the OmiseGo whitepaper.
Those are some pretty big names.

One-Year Simulation

1-Year Simulation of OmiseGO Prices and Returns

One-Year Simulated 1,000 Times

1-Year OmiseGO Prices Simulated 1,000 times

Verdict

We can be 95% certain that OmiseGO prices will fall between $0.62, and $185.35 with a median of $8.56.

NEO (formerly known as AntShares) is a smart asset platform and the first open source public blockchain project in China. Smart assets are the combination of smart blockchain contracts and digital assets.

One-Year Simulation

1-Year Simulation of NEO Prices and Returns

One-Year Simulated 1,000 Times

1-Year NEO Prices Simulated 1,000 times

Verdict

We can be 95% certain that NEO prices will fall between $3, and $3,076 with a median of $115.

RIPPLE

What is Ripple?

Ripple is a system created for banks to enable immediate payments and lower costs.
The vision of the Ripple creators is to allow a bank transfer in a few seconds (instead of the horribly annoying 2–3 business days).
Of note, is that Ripple is a U.S. based company. From the xrphodor blog:
Ripple is a US-based company.
Why is this an important point to consider? A US-based company like Ripple is subject to some very stringent laws regarding securities trading and money transmission. These include requirements that define how Ripple might interact with crypto markets and both institutional and retail crypto traders.

One-Year Simulation

1-Year Simulation of Ripple Prices and Returns

One-Year Simulated 1,000 Times

1-Year Ripple Prices Simulated 1,000 times

Verdict

We can be 95% certain that Ripple prices will fall between $0.05, and $163 with a median of $2.71.

Monero attempts to solve privacy and fungibility issues that persist in Bitcoin.
Part of the algorithm for Monero automatically mixes transactions with previous transactions and does this by implementing ring signatures.

One-Year Simulation

1-Year Simulation of Monero Prices and Returns

One-Year Simulated 1,000 Times

1-Year Monero Prices Simulated 1,000 times

Verdict

We can be 95% certain that Monero prices will fall between $68, and $8,142 with a median of $760.

Zcash

1-Year ZCash Prices Simulated 1,000 times

Verdict

We can be 95% certain that Zcash prices will fall between $54, and $6,259 with a median of $549.

YOUR VERY OWN FORECASTING TOOL

Since i’m so nice, I went ahead and created a forecasting tool for you to use:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1eUIgBowJs2NyKw7kYbx5z_VeCOxsMQdNELfbngs4XnY/copy

SERVICES USED:

  1. Google Sheets
  2. Spreadstreet Google Sheets Add-in
  3. StockTwits
  4. CoinMarketCap API
Full disclosure: The google sheets add-in is a 14-day free trial, and $15 per month after. However, no one should be refused access on the basis of money (especially true for students and less fortunate). Send me a message, and I will make sure you are not left in the dark.

A NOTE ON SECURITY

Users have expressed hesitation about running a google sheets add-in on their main computer, so I will attempt to ease those concerns:

WHAT IT PULLS:

GETTING THE SPREADSHEET TO WORK FOR YOU

Install the Spreadstreet add-in for Google Sheets
Get sheet ready for use with the add-in
After logging into the add-in, change the dropdown reference

TROUBLESHOOTING

  1. Important Open the template, click the menu Add-ons / Spreadstreet / Help / View in store, and then click Manage and in the dropdown menu click “Use in this document.”
  2. A reload of the entire worksheet fixes quite a few problems.
  3. Deleting and re-pasting the formula in A1 of the “Candles” tab fixes things as well.
  4. If all else fails, drop me a message
  5. The “SELECT CURRENCY” cell in the Analysis tab (B3) refreshes the pull. Change the results for new data.
When I try and change a coin, I get a #DIV/0 error
Login to the Spreadstreet add-in, and keep the window open. Try changing the dropdown again.
I have tried logging in, activating the template with “Use in this document” and refreshed the sheet…still nothing.
Head to the “Data” tab. Delete the formula in cell A1, and repaste the following: =SS(“candles-bitfinex”, ticker, “1D”, “hist”, true, “”, “”, “”, “0”)

CONCLUSION

Whether you are investing in Bitcoin, Ethereum, or SpankCoin, it is imperative to have a plan. Most notably, a worst-case scenario.
The Monte Carlo simulation is a fantastic way to get a range of prices for a cryptocurrency. And after reading this, you can see how the final values change drastically depending on what you are looking at.
I urge you to download the sheet and try your own hand at simulating different coins. The sheet is setup to pull in every single coin from CoinMarketCap.
Cheers, and happy hunting

Community-led Discord AMA Transcript - October 12th, 2018

On October 12, our CEO - Marshall, Director of Product - Patrick, Director of Business Operations - Kristal, and Senior iOS Engineer - Ephraim stopped by the community-led Discord channel to answer your questions. Here’s a transcript of the questions and answers.

On Crumbs...

meakkineni: Can you give us some Crumbs stats? Like the number of downloads, total amount managed by Crumbs etc
Patrick: Unfortunately cannot go into detail but we are into the thousands of users.
meakkineni: From the jobs postings looks like you are recruiting more people for Crumbs. Can you tell us about some of the exciting new features that are going to be implemented?
Patrick: Expect to see on-demand purchase of crypto bundles, mainnet deposits and withdraws, integration with Metal Pay, and more coins! Over the coming months, we plan to offer lower fees for MTL holders, unlock features, and more!
Abu: Is Crumbs going to include any gamification aspects in the future? How is the marketing strategy for Crumbs differ from pay?
Patrick: Yes, we will add an element of gamification in the future, the current focus is user acquisition
Marshall: Yes big surprise coming here, but I'll save that one for later. the marketing strategy will be closely tied together for both apps as they are tied together, and you will see this from a technical and feature perspective as time progresses

On Metal Pay…

red: How come we don't have referrals yet? Are we holding the feature back for some reason?
Ephraim: Referrals is one of the most exciting features we have in the works, because not only is it a technical challenge on both front-end and back-end, but it also introduces a new way to earn Pop. In fact, we’re just about wrapping up and finalizing the details for this feature, while making plans to translate the tech to support even more ways to earn rewards in the app. Something to look out for in version 1.1.0 😏
flumpson: My biggest hurdle in getting people to sign up is that their bank doesn’t work. In my case it was Citi. When will there be router and account number signup for people who aren’t served by plaid?
Ephraim: Currently the app integrates Plaid, a bank-linking SDK that supports over 90% of U.S. banking customers and is used by some of the biggest names in FinTech. We are aware however that online banking is required with your financial institution, and one way around that is routing/account number input. This feature is on our roadmap as a new service that will verify your account via micro-deposit. TLDR; it’s definitely coming!
Mondo: How do you see Metal Pay taking market share from the more popular apps like Venmo and CashApp? What will convince new users to switch over?
Marshall: I really believe through innovation, amazing user experience and specifically the value proposition to users on new behaviors and new technology. Specifically, I believe PoPP and the interactions with crypto to be completely new behaviors that the mass market is yet to be introduced to. Being paid (currency not points) for making a payment? I think this is a new concept and one that Metal owns. What will convince them? This is the hard question. A viral campaign that gets our apps out there, with proper messaging and the right endorsements I believe is key. Finding the viral loop, increasing our K factor (number of invites that every new user brings). When I started this company I recognized that design, user interface, user experience, incentives, and proper information were the biggest holes in cryptocurrency. We are hitting on all of these pieces.
Mondo: “A viral campaign that gets our apps out there, with proper messaging and the right endorsements I believe is key. Finding the viral loop, increasing our K factor (number of invites that every new user brings)" - is there an estimated date for this campaign? I'm sure your community would love to help where possible as well.
Marshall: We are in the process now of smoke testing our campaign strategies, and we will certainly be involving the community as we begin.
biyamin: "I am not okay putting my social security number in [Metal Pay]. Is there another way?"
Ephraim: This is one of mostly heard feedback, and we’re aware of the friction it can cause among new users. However, it is due to our financial partners' requirements, U.S. law, and FDIC insured Cash balance (we create a bank account on behalf of users) that prompt us to ask for SSN during on-boarding. Rest assured, we have a plan in placed to make onboarding as streamlined as possible, especially when SSN no longer serves as a fool-proof means of identity verification, due to recent security breaches by large firms. Finally, we have in our roadmap to allow users onto the Metal platform with limited KYC.
Marshall: Yes in the future you will be able to skip over this requirement, however linking in personal information will make you eligible for PoPP (this serves as the anchor), without it you won't be able to access those rewards and some special features like having a bank account with us.
jake_eisenberg11: When will Metal Pay release in New York happen?
Marshall: This is a tough one, it will happen upon one of two things coming to fruition. An exchange partner joins us who has a Bitlicense and will deeply integrate their back-end with us or us acquiring our Money Transmission License for NY and the accompanying Bitlicense (which if this is the case will take at least 1 year). That being said we're shooting for the former obviously, a partner to help us fast track and we've got a few in the pipeline
[A bunch of different people]: When will Metal Pay release in [insert location here]?
Kristal: I can assist with all the WHEN will Metal Pay release in MY STATE or COUNTRY. We have no firm timelines on either, but we are pursuing all states and expanding to Europe/Asia simultaneously… Ditto for Crumbs.
Jan: Quick one - Metal Pay debit cards?
Marshall: VERY SOON, it's next up on our feature roadmap
redruggles5: Really excited about Metal Pay for merchants, particularly micro-business. Are you able to tell us how that will look and where in the timeline that is? Do you have plans to integrate with current bookkeeping software like QuickBooks, plans for accepting credit cards/integration with Pay, etc? The biggest objection I get is in regards to integration with their current system, the ability to accept cards, addition of QR codes or another private way for customers to pay besides their phone number. Lastly, will there be a separate referral system for merchants?
Marshall: We are very excited as well, in terms of merchants we are going to start with the integrations into existing POS. Integrating with QuickBooks and Intuit are a must for crypto record keeping for S/M/L business, we have ambitious plans for this. Referral system for merchants via consumer - YES.
ekasu: Is there a possibility to increase the Metal Pay bank transfer speed (from 1 day or so currently to within the same day like Venmo) to increase competitiveness/attraction?
Marshall: Yes with Instant ACH for US customers, a feature we will be adding and is in the PF board on Jira
Bitcoinbella: Are there any plans for retail stores to use Metal yet?
Marshall: Yes, a big part of our plan of attack here is to launch first with the debit card so we can go anywhere Visa/MC is accepted. The next step is to go after small business with technical integrations through payment partners as well as simple QR codes at the register similar to Wechat/Alipay (China really inspires me). Technical integrations - this means WooCommerce, WordPress, Shopify, Authorize.net, etc, and for physical brick and mortar stores working directly with processors (lots of them see Square as a threat and are much larger, eventually Square will go to cut out interchange and stick it to the credit card companies, many partnership opportunities abound)
jake_eisenberg11: When cannabis merchant service?!?!?!
Marshall: We have pivoted away from high-risk merchants, that being said crypto is like cash and is permission-less. The bank poses no restrictions on what you do with cash withdrawn from the ATM unless you are doing something that could be considered illegal or pose harm to the bank. Very similar to us, replace paper cash with crypto.
ekasu: What is the deadline looking for these features: (a) transfer Metal to erc20 wallet/Metal vault; (b) use Metal Pay with merchants
Marshall: Mainnet deposit/withdrawal early end of this year or January. Metal merchants will kick off with our card integration for consumers, integrations for Merchant will start next year (upon hiring more developers) Glenn very early on built a very cool WordPress plugin for WooCommerce. These integrations for WP, Shopify, etc will come first and most likely early in 2019.
meakkineni: Looking at things so far, I have a feeling that PoPP score implementation has barely started. What is the time frame we are looking for it to go live?
Marshall: PoPP score is implemented just not integrated into the UI, this is a high priority one for us.

On MTL...

Decoder1: There's been talk about making the MTL token more prominent in both Crumbs and MetalPay. Some things which have been mentioned are discounted fee's, moving it to the top of the buy list, unlocking special features and obviously the increased POPP score which has already been confirmed. Are these still in the works or have they been shelved? If so are there any other bonus features Metal are considering?
Marshall: I'm really looking forward to adding these additional features to highlight the special function of MTL inside the Metal ecosystem of apps. Some things that have not been talked about yet are early access on special features for users with a MTL balance, gamified features to unlock surge PoPP, partner integrations and more.
NilesCrane: What will be the utility of the MTL token when other tokens are available to be popped? What will being the 'native currency' for the Metallicus apps involve and why would you expect this to drive the token price higher when other tokens are available in the same network?
kt: When will we start to see some other utilities for the MTL token through pay and Crumbs etc, other than the existing PoPP mechanism, and what are they likely to be?
Ephraim: We have a grand vision of how Metal and Pop will play a role in your daily experience on the Metal platform. Although we can’t go into too much detail into the features we have in our roadmap, we can say that MTL token will be an essential part of the Metal platform and overall ecosystem. Earning Pop when making payments is the stepping stone to realizing this vision, as we become the best, most rewarding, and user-friendly payments/crypto platform on the market.
Deaethtofiat: Will Metal's [ticker] still be changing?
Marshall: That [$XMT] is something we want to do upon announcing our mainnet chain.
Tblgu: Did Metal pay a fee for Bittrex relisting?
Kristal: Simple answer is no. We haven't seen any American-based exchanges charging for listings, and we believe the Bittrex re-listing was based entirely on the merits of our company.
marc0o: I know it might take a while until Metal reaches Europe. My favorite and IMO very promising exchange (Lykke) often gets the question whether PayPal can be used to deposit EUR or FIAT in general. Do you think it would be possible and useful to partner up with exchanges to provide FIAT deposits/withdraws?
Marshall: Yes we absolutely do and are talking to top exchanges right now, there are so many exchanges that are crypto/crypto only and we think we make a very nice fit for an integration to be the onramp/offramp, p2p payments, spending and link to the merchant world. This is a critical part of our business model and so far we are seeing HEAVY interest.
lemme: Why is Metal selling so much $MTL from the operational pool for such a low price?
Marshall: Selling and spending are two different things, so I think one of the assumptions is that selling = spending which is not the case. Yes, we are selling MTL to fund our operating bank, but not spending it at the rate that we are selling it. We are doing this because of three reasons: (1) We raised a very small amount last year to build out our apps (which arguably we have delivered) $3m vs most crypto startups raising $20m+ and we have delivered much, much more. (2) We need to demonstrate a full year of burn in the bank account to close the audit. (3) We need to close the audit to retain our money transmission licenses to get all fifty states, Europe as well, in addition to certain features like in app-exchange that we do directly. We're actively growing the company and as soon as we close Series A we will stop selling and focus on accumulating (not only MTL, but certainly as much MTL as we can get our hands on while diversifying).
ekasu: How likely is that more MTL is taken out of the operational pool in the short term, which can decrease the price much more?
Marshall: MTL will be taken out of the operational pool until the successful closing of our financing round which we are in the process of right now
meakkineni: Have you come up with any other significant use cases for MTL apart from BNB style use case in Crumbs and building a better PoPP score?
Marshall: Yes, and you will be hearing more about that as we plan to release an updated paper showcasing the fully decentralized aspects of the chain we are building.

On Metal…

marc0o: I hope I remember it right. A while ago Marshall talked about Metal being a service targeting people that do not have a bank account. Is this still on the roadmap?
Marshall: Yes it is. I know it may not appear that way right now but I firmly believe a good product keeps a narrow execution and a large vision. So the first part of the network and what will eventually become decentralized is starting on the equivalent of testnet or centralized (this is not too different than Bitcoin or Ethereum in the early days). We’re starting with linked bank accounts and moving to keep that as an option that people can skip over and opt to choose a stable coin, all while creating a Metal profile and [obtaining a] PoPP score.
Parker: Would Metal consider doing token buybacks (a la BNB)? Are they even legal in the U.S.? Could doing so make Metal a security?
Marshall: As a company, we will buy different cryptocurrencies at different times depending upon the market situation, buying MTL is something that we will do, as far as any guarantee to x amount being bought back per quarter or percentage of profit, that is most likely indefinitely off the table for a US company.
CryptoSheffield: Do you “own” the PoPP concept?
Marshall: We own trademarks yes, the first mention of media and are working on a provisional patent. This type of thing is very hard to get a patent for even harder to defend right now.
Future: Some people noticed Sid no longer on the website. Has he moved on? If so what's the story there?
Kristal: Sid put together some beautiful designs and helped shape and create the early stages of Metal until it's launch. As we move into the next stage of post-launch, we amicably parted ways with Sid and wish him continued success wherever he goes. As a company, we're on the hunt for a Principal Designer to continue our progress on great design and user interface, to push us into the next phase of our product.
Marshall: I'd also like to add design is incredibly important to me and the reason I hired Sid. If you follow my work from my first crypto/fintech startup I've always been a stickler for amazing user experience and design, specifically with Metal I'm going above and beyond and creating what I believe to be a work of art, something that will be on showcase in the Moma in 20 years from now on a design exhibit.
SciGuy: You guys still thinking of launching in Korea? Of all the places, this is where I'm actually going to be paying very close attention. Korea loves crypto.
Marshall: BIG TIME. We want to enter the Korean market ASAP as we know we have quite a few fans there. The goal is to quickly enter the international market by the end of this year. Now that Nebula is working the next hurdles are bank/FI partners, licensing, localization and marketing (its more complicated than that but those are the critical pieces to expansion). Keep in mind we will be allowing anyone in the world to sign up in the future and skip bank while choosing a stablecoin as their "bank" fiat choice. This goes back to the unbanked question. If we just release a crypto wallet and say tada we've banked the unbanked... have we really? I'm serious when I say it. And you can see it in the progression with our products and the vision. Gotta link existing banked citizens along with merchants and unbanked, they all must be in the same ecosystem. Otherwise, the dream can't become a reality.
andrea: I would like to ask about timing. I remember there was a talk about things that could be done before EOY such as new crypto implementing PoPP; debit card, series A round.
Marshall: Yes, I'm happy to say this is all on track. In terms of fundraising round, I believe the missing link for us is demonstrating user growth and b2b client acquisition, something we are working on fiercely right now. One of the things I saw in Dogecoin community that was really awesome was the involvement of the community in viral campaigns (especially for good) such as NascaJosh Wise, Doge for water, Sending the Jamaican bobsled team to the Winter Olympics.
nofomo: Anything you can share about things to look forward to before EOY? Any big partnerships, etc.? From a marketing perspective, are there ways that MTL can showcase or communicate SEC compliance more? Not to flaunt it, but as people scramble out of bad projects/Tether, etc., it might help to get more info out there. When Desk, and can we expect to see USD/MTL pairs?
Marshall: We have quite a few new features coming: PoPP in under ten minutes always, PoPP notifier so you can know if a payment is PoPP eligible, API for other companies (exchanges, cryptos, FIs), adding more cryptos for PoPP funnel, buy functionality, mainnet deposit/withdrawal. Partnerships we have a few big ones in the pipeline 😉 In terms of compliance I think our actions speak louder than words, we operated very differently than 99% of the other companies in the space and focused heavily on compliance in a rapidly evolving landscape. We were chastised initially for keeping the token offering private and to accredited but in the long run this was the correct way to operate and we're seeing that now. Desk/Vault is postponed until next year as we have more than enough to conquer right now on Pay/Crumbs... USD/MTL pairs, soon!!! Not just with us, but on other exchanges we anticipate.
meakkineni: Has any other banks shown interest in Metal lately?
Marshall: Yes, a few big ones, as well as smaller tier 2 banks
meakkineni: Is there any tangible benefit Metal has gained so far by sponsoring Necker Cup?
Marshall: Yes, quite a bit with partners we are in talks with now, in addition to bringing in investors in our next financing round... Not to forget influencers!
cryptoandcannabis: Is there any institutional support for Metal being shown, even in preliminary stages? Now that traditional asset custodians such as Fidelity are in the mix maybe MTL can become a slice of people's crypto asset class
Marshall: We are starting to see interest from the big custodians in the space, very exciting times. Fidelity recently entering has really helped this, in addition, several trust companies are opening up.

On Metal Blockchain…

1Chance: Will [Metal] consider supporting any of the stablecoins?
Marshall: Yes, all of the good ones we will be supporting.
Yannik: Will be some parts of the new Metal Blockchain open source? And based on Stellar?
Marshall: Yes it most certainly will be open source and anyone can connect to our public network. Based on Stellar? Where are you getting this information? 😛
Québécoiserie: Are you working on Metal Blockchain now or has it not started yet?
Marshall: We are in the very beginning phases and testing the assumptions for PoPP on our centralized back-end. Additionally, we are in the process of raising a funding round, The Metal Foundation will be running the open source initiative when we launch it next year.
Decoder1: There is a lot of talk about a Metal blockchain - this sounds exciting but also quite ambitious because it can take years to achieve the fine tuning and security required to develop a new blockchain. Would it be PoW? PoS? Wouldn't it be easier to build a side chain on Ethereum like Loom, or build something on Cosmos SDK to take advantage of existing layer 1 security solutions? If you plan to one day PoPP with other tokens Cosmos might be a good idea. My concern is that with a small team and many things like Desk, Merchant, revamped Vault, new features on the App, Android, new regions, that Metal might be biting off more than it can chew. So if you could elaborate more on these plans that would be great!
Marshall: This is a correct assumption and we are already doing a lot, there is a reason we have put Vault/Desk on hold while we focus on Crumbs and Pay. In terms of the blockchain side, we are staying agnostic and specifically with the consensus mechanism we are looking at lots of options. We will, without a doubt, be leveraging other chains for interoperability. Jae Kwon is a good friend of mine and I think Cosmos has a lot of potential (I'm an investor full disclosure), I also look at the work that has been done with Komodo leveraging the bitcoin blockchain, I find this very interesting as well. The idea here is that this will be a non-profit initiative under The Metal Foundation and not directly intertwined with Metallicus Inc. the private company.
meakkineni: Lately we have been talking more about Metal Blockchain than Metal Merchant. Has the focus shifted?
Marshall: The focus has not shifted, one of the things that did change from the inception of the project until now is that we've decided to stay away from re-inventing POS and merchant software, we feel that it is better to partner with processors than try to replace them ala Square

On ???...

Sporklin: I did warn I came with a vital question. @Marshall Shoes, you are known in the crypto space for having good taste in clothes. What is on your feet at the moment?
Marshall: Hey @Sporklin!!!! Long time no see and thank you. Ok check it out, these ones are steezy and I just picked them up.
Yannik: Is Kangen Water still available in the office?
Marshall: Yes, still on tap, always. Kangen 9.5.
Parker: how many fingers am I holding up?
Marshall: Two? 🤘

Raspberry Pi Home Dashboard

I had a few requests of my home dashboard, and wanted to share with everyone how I put it together.
What you'll need:
Step 1: Instructions to Set Up the Raspberry Pi Itself:
Step 2: Set up the HTML File to Display
/home/pi/html
  1. Background.png
  2. Dashboard.html
  3. News.html
  4. Map.html
  5. Stocks.html
  6. ToDo.html
  7. Weather.html
  8. Calendar.html
FINAL Comments. This project probably took me 1h to set up the pi. And 4ish hours stumbling around to get the dashboard set up. My only real outlay was a monitor mount and a new monitor. Best of luck!
EDIT Here is the link for the current version of the dashboard. I removed the traffic for the weekend, but this is the dashboard. I have some formatting I really want to do (headings et al), but this should be a decent start. I have also included the color scheme I used.

[TASK] Fix this bit of code for me. See text for details.

I have a wordpress site and a page on the site requires a code to pull the market price of Bitcoin and then offer it for sale/purchase based on % increases or decreases I can set. Code is below.
I don't really care what website the market price is pulled from, just need the code for one page to display the following:
"We are currently purchasing BTC at $3,600US or $27,000TTD"

That $3,600 should be a function of a discount % applied to a market price from a website such as coinbase or bitstamp or some industry site where rates are constantly changing. I should be able to easily change the % in the code. The $27,000TTD is our currency. That figure should derive from the $3,600US figure x 7.5. So as the PRICE changes the TTD will change.

Conversely, I'd like to have a second set that reads the following:
"we are currently selling BTC at $4,000US or $30,000TTD"
Again, that $4,000US should be a function of a premium applied via a % to the standard market rate the code is pulling from a market site. Same x 7.5 to arrive at the TTD amount.

So I need two sets of codes that create these two different formulas. They will go on two separate pages.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS TASK, PLEASE MESSAGE ME WITH THE AMOUNT/FEE/CHARGE YOU WILL REQUIRE TO COMPLETE IT. I CAN PAY VIA PAYPAL.
Currently, the code is broken and displaying https://imgur.com/a/EmUumfS
Here's what it looks like:
```?php $url = "https://bitpay.com/api/rates"; $json = file_get_contents($url); $bitpay_data = json_decode($json, TRUE); $bitpay_usd_exchange_rate = $bitpay_data[2]["rate"]; $bitpay_ten_percent_usd_bitcoin_price = $bitpay_usd_exchange_rate * 0.10; $bitpay_ten_percent_increased_bitcoin_value = $bitpay_usd_exchange_rate + $ten_percent_usd_bitcoin_price; $bitpay_ten_percent_decrease_usd_bitcoin_price = $bitpay_usd_exchange_rate - $bitpay_ten_percent_usd_bitcoin_price ; $blockchainurl = "https://blockchain.info/ticker"; $json = file_get_contents($blockchainurl); $blockchain_data = json_decode($json, TRUE); $blockchain_usd_exchange_rate = $blockchain_data["USD"]["15m"]; $blockchain_ten_percent_usd_bitcoin_price = $blockchain_usd_exchange_rate * 0.10; $blockchain_ten_percent_increased_bitcoin_value = $blockchain_usd_exchange_rate + $blockchain_ten_percent_usd_bitcoin_price; $blockchain_ten_percent_decrease_usd_bitcoin_price = $blockchain_usd_exchange_rate - $blockchain_ten_percent_usd_bitcoin_price ; ?

Funding History

**A clearer break down was explained by a Dfinity team member in this thread
Q: The 7th Feb announcement says $100m raised in private funding, but email update says $61m - can anyone enlighten?
Sure, so the project funding is as follows: $4MM raised in the Seed Round in February 2017. After expenses and appreciation, this is roughly $40MM, held by DFINITY Stiftung. In the Strategic Round, which began in July of 2017, $21MM was raised. This is also held by the Stiftung, bringing total funding to ~$61MM As part of the Strategic Round, Polychain Capital spun up an ecosystem fund to help projects migrate to DFINITY and build new businesses on the platform. This is entirely under their management and totals $40MM.
All together this brings funding to ~$101MM. It's been reported in a number of confusing ways, but that is the actual break down.
The Seed Round was in the model of an ICO but it occurred before the actual ICO boom. Just under 25% of the network was distributed.
Fall 2016
A not-for-profit Swiss foundation is created
Feb 2017
Distributed "Seed" fundarise using Ethereum technology (~250 people, 25% token distributed)

Full Review

At a Glance

Difinity is a single 'internet computer', infinitely scalable with unlimited capacity. Dfinity is crypto:3, enabling a global blockchain computer utilizing Threshold Relay chain, generating incorruptible, unmanipulable and unpredictable randomness. Threshold Relay chain addresses key attacks and vulnerabilities such as 'selfish mining' and 'nothing at stake' found in traditional PoW and PoS consensus. Dfinity is cloud:3, allowing business applications running on this computer performant with unlimited capacity, reducing human capital required in traditional IT systems, effectively cutting cost down by 90%. Dfinity introduces a new governance model, a novel decentralized decision-making system called "Blockchain Nervous System (BNS). This new design paradigm embraces "The AI is Law" (as opposed to "The Code is Law"), combing crowd wisdom and traditional AI technologies to prevent malicious smart contracts and hacks.
Dfinity was built as a complementary network to Ethereum, compatible for all DAPPs deployed on the Ethereum network, making migration easy with 50x performance improvement and unlimited capacity. Difinity is in fact often described as "Ethereum's crazy sister".

Crypto:3

Dfinity was formed to research ways of enabling public decentralized networks to host a virtual computer of unlimited capacity, secure, speedy, and scalable. The core approach involves adding a top-level Threshold Relay Chain that produces randomness and progresses with minimal reorganizations of the blockchain. Threshold Relay Chain creates incorruptible, unmanipulable, unpredictable randomness for a deterministic chain of randomness, unforkable and robust. At current state, Dfinity reaches block finality in about 5 seconds with 2 confirmations and low variance. Putting numbers into perspective, Bitcoin requires 6 confirmations, 60 minute finality and very high variance. Ethereum under current PoW design and network congestion, takes about 37 minutes at a finality time of 10 minutes with high variance.
Threshold Relay Chain's performance properties provide 'scale-up' gains, Dfinity further applies a three-level 'scale-out' architecture that addresses in order consensus, validation and storage, to handle unlimited computation.
Threshold Relay chain that creates a random heartbeat that drives a Validation Tree of Validation Towers in the validation layer, which does for validation what a Merkle tree does for data and provides almost infinitely scalable global validation. The random beacon also defines the organization of mining clients into storage (state) shards in the storage layer, which use their own Threshold Relay chains to quickly reach consensus on received transactions and resulting state transitions that are passed up to the validation layer. The top-level Threshold Relay consensus blockchain then records state roots provided by the Validation Tree that anchor all the storage in the network.
Dfinity is an intelligent decentralized cloud governed by the Blockchain Nervous System (BNS). The BNS has privileged access to the virtual machine to run special opcodes like freezing contracts, redistribute tokens or even run arbitrary code to reorganize the blockchain. This 'super user' can return funds and reverse the damage of hacks or programmatic errors, protecting users in case of vulnerabilities. The BNS also seamlessly upgrades the protocol on a regular basis, as opposed to disruptive 'hard forks', driving network evolution forward as quickly as possible.

Cloud:3

Dfinity is an intelligent decentralized cloud governed by Blockchain Nervous System, recreating monopolistic traditional cloud hosting solutions such as Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services. The costs of owning enterprise IT systems are dominated by human capital, with redundant tasks such as configuring database, file distribution, backup/restore, load balancing, firewall configurations etc. While computing costs may be dramatically higher with Dfinity, actual cost of operation is estimated to be cut down by 90%.
Reimagine and reinvent enterprise IT, blockchains inhereit these properties making it possible
Autonomous : System without intermediaries
Verifiable : Know what code you execute
Tamperproof : No servers to meddle with
Simple : Distribution abstracted
Unstoppable : Open code and governance
Interoperability : No server boundaries
Dfinity is interoperable in that it takes a hybrid approach to private and public blockchains, users don't have hard choices to make. It is a similar design paradigm to the internet, where people have the http protocol as common meeting point while maintaining sensitive information within their local area network.
This design paradigm is emergent for the mass adoption for blockchains, there will be common services like identity validation readily availalble as a public service. There will also be more complex systems where users can simply adopt instead of rebuilding. You can have a private dfinity consortium or private instances with the ability to call into those public blockchain services, connecting these private chain instances using common blocks.
Let's further explore this with a real life example, say there's a trade financing supply system of a large manufacturer with thousands of vendors. Before their enrollment, you'll probably need to do some identity and reputation check in the public chain in order to validate their legitimacy. Next step these vendors need trade financing where they'll need more complex systems like stable coins or bank coins to avoid volatility, and move the money around. Instead of rebuilding a coin, they could just adopt a coin system within the dfinity network. In the next round there can be disbutes with goods lost or quality problems, vendors can call for public arbitration system where there'll be a network of lawyers who specialize in cross-border disbutes or arbiters to provide the service. So a chain of services that can be called throughout the life cycle, interoperable between the private and the public blockchains.

Staking Mechanism

Dfinity is a PoS (Proof of Stake) model, managed by its BNS (Blockchain Nervous System). This system is reliant on a human-controlled "neurons" (similar to masternodes in terms of staking and voting functions). In order to secure the role, users will run special client software with a delegate key, deposit fixed amount of dfinities to ensure consistency and reliability of the network, then in turn will receive economic incentives for its voting services.
People can pay a fee in dfinities to submit a proposal to the BNS, be it technical proposals like protocol upgrades or governance proposals eg. how much should be deposited to create a mining identity given the current value of DFN, this is much like liquid democracy.
Currently it takes 3 months to dissolve a neuron, client software can create a follow list (synchronous and non-deterministic to the rest of the network), which are the addresses of the neurons you follow on different topics. This captures the expertise of the community but at the same time being an opague liquid democracy, nobody knows what the follow lists are, you can't see how the brain makes its decisions.

Utility Value of Dfinities

Dfinity vs Ethereum

At a top level, Dfinity tries to stay compatible to the Ethereum network, meaning DAPPs currently running on Ethereum can be migrated to Dfinity easily, with significant gains in performance, scalability, security etc. Essentially where the name "Ethereum's crazy sister" came from.
There are some fundamental differences in design philosophy and approach to consensus agreements. Ethereum embraces the design paradigm "The code is law" where rules of the network is a result of community management. Dfinity embraces "The AI is law" where management is by the Blockchain Nervous System. Ethereum's Casper (POS) will be focused on extreme availability while Dfinity aims to achieve performance and infinite scale. In Dfinity's design, consistency and reliability outweighs availability.
A great debate on several fundamental design differences between Ethereum Casper and Dfinity's Threshold Relay Chain+Blockchain Nervous System (also part of the debate is Cosmos/Tendermint's Jae Kwon) can be watched here Proof of Stake Panel Discussion - Silicon Valley Ethereum Meetup

    1. Great analysis by singularity and jessquit on how anti-btc trolls shifted: "suddenly last year they all disappeared, and a new type of bitcoin user appeared who were fully in support of bitcoin but they just so happened to support every single thing Blockstream and its employees said and did." (102 points, 50 comments)
    2. Don't fall for EDA Dragons Den FUD. EDA is a powerful weapon that could kill off or cripple the segwit chain for good. Legacy coin has no EDA crash barrier as this article explains. This is why small blockers use FUD us to disarm the EDA (78 points, 118 comments)
    3. Roger Ver CEO of bitcoin.com says that from his point of view the segwit2x split just gives him more coins to sell for the Bitcoin Cash version which he thinks is the more useful Bitcoin @3min41s mark (71 points, 33 comments)
    4. Proof the new Dragons Den plan could be to try to split BCC with an EDA change. Mrhodl is confirmed Dragons Den, and Cobra Bitcoin is the leader of bitcoin.org which is making enemy lists for big block supporting businesses. (70 points, 47 comments)
    5. Right now segwit2x (BT2) is trading for $1143 and segwit1x (BT1) is $3070 on Bitfinex futures markets. Even with not the greatest terms, you would expect 2x to be much higher. I believe this bodes well for BCC. (61 points, 112 comments)
    6. The other day people were suggesting we do an EDA change before the November 2x fork. Here is why I think that is a terrible idea, and why we should only consider EDA change AFTER the 2x fork. (58 points, 40 comments)
    7. "Nick, Adam and others saw the flaw in the system being that they could not ensure one vote one person.. The flaw in that reasoning is assuming that one vote one person was ever a goal. Miners act economically not altruistically." (57 points, 14 comments)

    2. By proving that it can be done (getting rid of Core) this will set a HUUGE precedent and milestone that dev teams and even outright censorship cannot overtake Bitcoin. That will be an extremely bullish occasionfor all crypto. (149 points, 84 comments)
    3. Bitfinex is going to call Segwit2x coins "B2X" and let Core chain retain "BTC" ticker symbol. Bitfinex is therefore calling Segwit2x an altcoin and Core the "real chain". (138 points, 70 comments)
    4. The goal of all the forks appears to be to dilute investment in the true forks: Bitcoin Cash and Segwit2x. A sort of Scorched Earth approach by Blockstream. They are going to try to tear down Bitcoin as they get removed. (35 points, 11 comments)
    5. Blockstream be like (10 points, 11 comments)
    6. In light of all these upcoming forks, we need a site where you can put in a BTC address and it checks ALL the forks and says which chains still have a balance for that address. This way you can split your coins and send coins carefully. (6 points, 6 comments)

    3. According to Crooked Greg, Jeff merging opt-in replay protection is "alarming", because it must mean Jeff wants to blacklist people's addresses too. Core devs keep lying and manipulating to stir more drama and further the split in the community. Disgusting! (75 points, 16 comments)

    2. Notice: Redditor for 3-4 months accounts or accounts that do not have a history of Bitcoin posts are probably the same person or just a few people paid to manipulate discussion here. It's likely a paid astroturfing campaign. (38 points, 30 comments)

A WordPress Bitcoin Ticker Widget

After trying to find a normal WordPress widget on the web that displays the latest Bitcoin prices with a graphical representation I finally gave up and decided to write one myself. So I'm proud to present to you the Bitcoin widget that will let you display the latest Bitcoin prices from 3 major exchanges: MtGox, BitStamp and BTCe. It will also give you a graph representation of the last 24 hours of Bitcoin prices. Any improvements or ideas for how to make it better are appreciated.

Looking for someone to create a bitcoin ticker for my website

I run bitcoin warrior.net. I am interested in having someone create a custom bitcoin ticker that will show current, high and low prices for Mt. Gox, BTC-e, Campbx, and Coinbase. I'd like Mt. Gox to be shown as default and tabs along the top of the widget to let the user select the exchange they want to see.
I am running Wordpress Theme forest Avada theme.
Please let me know if you are interested and how many BTC you think it would take.
