Something, which facilitates the people in their lives, automatically will have some values. Whether it is in goods or in services. Therefore, Bitcoin’s uses and its benefits are the reason behind its value. Bitcoin community is active as other social networks. In addition, the main reason behind its increasing worth is the limited supply of bitcoins. Whereas, the government is unable to trace and tax. Bitcoins are in limited quantity. Accordingly, the price of bitcoin in this year is 50x. which is seriously an insane swing of any currency.
Currency needs some qualities
There are some qualities which should be in any currency. These qualities make the money more powerful.
Actually, money/currency should be limited in supply. As economics proves that demand will increase with limited supply. Similarly, with the bitcoin, the total supply of 21 million coins increases its demand. In the result, its values increase day by day. Today’s value of bitcoin is $2251 as of May 23rd 2017.
The utility of any currency or object plays an important role in the determination of its value. In the result, higher demand enhances the higher price.
As currency/money always use in the transaction process, or in exchange meanings. Accordingly, If money has an ability of easily transferable then it will use by a large number of people. Moreo, if it has not, then money/currency’s demand will be low. Accordingly, Bitcoin’s transfer availability is in more than 100 financial sectors.
Everyone in the world has an authority to keeps his/her transactions private. Whereas, People like the process, which provides them such kind of privacy for their transactions. However, Bitcoin provides such type of process to its users.
Here is some discussion about how bitcoin value.
Bitcoin technology has worth for solving the long-standing two general problems. Clever solution for transactions of digital spending is achieved by the self-organizing and time-base record. The blockchain populate the bitcoin network, is well known public ledger.
There is not central server to control or shut down the bitcoin protocol. Censorship resistance of bitcoin is critical. Clearly, means there is no one to control the usage of bitcoin. Censorship resistance to digital currency and its payment system makes the bitcoin an irreversible disruptive technology.
In the field of computer science, Satoshi Nakamoto’s innovations are milestones. Even so, with no limitation, bitcoin become the number one exchange and payment network. Each bitcoin users are responsible for his/her bitcoin’ security. Most of the people like the anonymous behavior of transactions are one the reason of bitcoin’s fame.
To the solution of double-spending, Bitcoin’s explicit design features offer users additional value:
- Bitcoin’s payment method
- Secure storage and transmission of user’s data
- Blockchain (decentralize public transaction ledger)
- Contract mechanism
Secure way for transactions
In addition, bitcoin user’s wallet generates the public keys. Therefore, no one is allowing to step-in transaction’s process.
Bitcoin is peer-to-peer decentralize network. However, nodes are distributing to decentralize the whole network. Whereas, Bitcoin is designed to seek the nodes. In short, the greater decentralization the healthier the network.
Above all are few aspects, that makes the bitcoin valuable. So, take time and make the decision with bitcoin world.

According to the latest report, in the coming months, ban on the ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) by South Korea could be eased. In September, it was reported that the Financial Services Commission of the country had moved to ban the blockchain funding model. However, the latest report by the “Korea Times” claims that there’s a chance that the ban may get lifted, especially for token sales.
From an anonymous source, it’s stated;
“The financial authorities have been talking to the country’s tax agency, justice ministry, and other relevant government offices about a plan to allow ICOs in Korea when certain conditions are met.”
Even with the local ban, a lot of cryptocurrency users in South Korea are still contributing to international ICOs. The official at the FSC (Financial Service Commission), that manages and supervises the cryptocurrency trading rules, Kang Young-soo, has denied to give any statement on ICOs and just said that third-party-view is being considered by FSC.
Moreover, Young-soo has also confirmed that the government is also looking forward to make a whole lot better infrastructure for regulating the trades of cryptocurrency and also to advance blockchain technologies. On the other hand, international cryptocurrency market is presenting new challenges for lawmakers as well.
At this time, there’s a ban on the overseas residents from trading cryptocurrency in South Korea. The main purpose of this ban is to curb money laundering and other cross-border crimes that might be possible. Meanwhile, it’s been reported that the officials of South Korea are having a word with counterparts in China and Japan, in order to discover regulatory collaboration, which at the same time, also means that any final regimes could be settled with those countries.
Right now, the biggest problem that the government is facing with cryptocurrencies is its inability to efficiently control taxes from cities that hold the currency. Though, countries like Japan have shown a way of managing it, by taking each ICO on a case by case method, while other countries like China have chosen a total ban. China is showing no sign of willingness to ease this ban on the ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings), as this is the country’s own ban, which was revealed in early September to South Korea’s announcement. When a ban on ICO was announced by South Korea, it was really discouraging, as this country is best known for accepting and implementing the latest technologies.
Is the bitcoin mining being really profitable? Some of this technology users say yes, it is profitable. Whereas, bitcoin mining is a difficult task while you are competing against Chinese miners. As the year 2016 was the best for mining described by the stakeholders. While mining of the bitcoin become difficult after a second halving event. Whereas, reward on mining of one block decline from 25 to 12.5 BTC.
You need more efficient mining hardware if you want to compete and continue with bitcoin mining process. Few of the mining hardware are given below,
Ant miner S5
This is the cheapest miner often known as the entry-level miner. Users of this device are fully satisfied with it. But the block reward is decreasing now. You are not able to generate 0.05 coins in revenues. In addition, to get full BTC, miners have to operate one year and eight months.
Ant miner S7
You have the ability to produce 0.15 bitcoin with ant miner S7 to become a leader. While, If the currency value continually growing up, it will be the very good investment. This device is better for the early adopter of the technology. Whereas, it is not enough strong to produce a large number of bitcoin.
Avalon 6 is same as s5 and s7 with little changes. While the users of this technology are fully satisfied with it. Miners mostly select s7 instead of Avalon 6 because of it is $100 more expensive than s7. This software has the capacity to earn 0.12 bitcoin per month.
Ant miner R4
This mining machine is specially designed to mine bitcoin at home as a hobby. It has the ability to compete with s7. In addition, the upside of this hardware is cooling machine. Furthermore, it is quite compared to the other bitcoin miners. You can break even with this device within a year. Whereas, it involves the risky investments. And miners become outdated after six to nine month. ROI only produce in case of currency values continually increases.
Avalon introduce the most recent mining device Avalon 7 or 721. It is quite cheap as compared to the modern mining hardware devices. In addition, with entry-level mining, miners can break even within two years.
Ant miner S9
It is basically a cream of the crop. In addition, with the capacity to mine 3 or 4 times more BTC, it is five-time expensive. This device uses electricity more efficiently because it provides the profit at a short time period.
Accordingly, this device is new in the market is the most sophisticated rig. Antminer has the capacity to mine 0.5 coin monthly in which extra expenses are not included. Whereas, with the greater hashing power Antminer S9 work efficiently.
A top maker of the Application Specific Integrated Circuit hardware (ASIC) Bitmain is easily available for the public in a market. S9 is the latest model in the market. Whereas, its chip is smaller than the others mining hardware but is more efficient in working.
Accordingly, miners will be able to break even within the year.
Upcoming mining hardware
Following are some mining hardware with efficient mining capacity.
Fast- hash one
Fast- hash one series is including silver edition, gold edition, platinum edition means three model machine is in one setup. Machines come with the same module. And has a capacity to up-grated up to six.
|Editions||Start||Tops out||Produce bitcoin|
|Silver edition||64GH/s||384GH/s||0.2 up to 0.85 bitcoin per day|
|Gold edition||128GH/s||768GH/s||Same as above|
|Platinum edition||256GH/s||1.536 TH/s||Same as above|
Gold and platinum editions support up to six expansion cases. Whereas, silver does not support this sort of cases. These miners are available for pre-order and each extension contains 16 modules.
The price of this fast-hash one is $2499- $5999.
CoinTerra and TerraMiner IV
CoinTerra and TerraMiner IV is bitcoin mining machine. Which is drove by CoinTerra’s own in-house ASIC chips, Goldstrike I. In addition, TerraMiner with 4U power supply is built on 28nm process.
This miner contains 4 ASIC chips with the hash rate of 500 GH/s. Accordingly, CoinTerra IV has the total hash rate of 2TH/s. Furthermore, a price of $ 5999, CoinTerra translate to just over 1.1 bitcoin per day.
Hashfast sierra is an efficient performance mining machine. It is basically built into 4U mountable case with two seansonic power supplies. Sierra has the hash rate of 1.2 TH/s means 0.66 bitcoin per day. This miner does not have an on-boarder controller. So, you have to connect through a USB. This main control is everything that will run CGminer, a mining software. Hashfast sierra with a cost of $6300 is available.
Black arrow Prospero X-3
Black arrow X-3 is presented by 20 black arrow minion ASIC chips. The ASIC built on 28 nm processor and are in-house design. The 20 Minion ASIC chips in the Prospero X-3 give it a hash rate of 2TH/s, good for about 1.1 Bitcoins per day as of the time of writing. The Prospero X-3 has been designed with up to 20% under- and overclocks in mind. It also supports the lightweight Stratum mining protocol.
The Prospero X-3 is available for pre-order and is scheduled to be available at the end of February 2014.
The price of this mining hardware is $6999.
This miner is quite possibly the granddaddy of all Bitcoin mining machines. Whereas, it is basically four modular 20nm ASIC boards, designed so that the machine will continue mining even if one (or more) of the boards fails. Accordingly, it follows up from their previous miner, the Jupiter, which was built on a 28nm process.
The Neptune has a minimum hashing speed of 3TH/s, which translates to about 1.66 Bitcoins a day. This is a vast improvement on the Jupiter, which was only able to mine 0.6 Bitcoins a day. KnCMiner also mentions that they have the right to increase the speeds as it nears shipment, so the Neptune might end up being even faster once it gets into miners’ hands.
The KnCMiner Neptune is currently available for pre-order and is scheduled to begin shipping in Q1/Q2 of 2014, limited to 1200 units.
The price of this mining machine is $12,995.
