  • Gene-Edited CRISPR Twins May Have Supercharged Brains, And Silicon Valley Wants In On It
    A pair of Chinese twins who were gene-edited for resistance to HIV may also have 'supercharged' brains, along with possible resistance to age-related cognitive diseases such as Alzheimer's.  In a controversial experiment led by Chinese scientist He Jiankui, the embroys of seven couples had their genes "edited" using a tool known as CRISPR. By removing a gene called CCR5, Jiankui sought to create a natural immunity to HIV - which requires CCR5 to enter blood cells.  Based on new research, however, Jiankui may have also left the twins, Lulu and Nana, with improved memory and enhanced cognition, according to MIT Technology ReviewThey may also enjoy some degree of protection from Alzheimer's Disease and other maladies which are rapidly being linked to chronic inflammation, as some groups of mice without CCR5 - or who have been given CCR5 ...

  • Worlds Collide: Zuckerberg Reveals Facebook Is Mulling Over Blockchain Offering
    That’s right, Facebook has a blockchain division. Last year, as the crypto ‘bubble’ had its pedal to the metal, Facebook called on a number of executives from its own teams, like Messenger and Instagram, along with third-party talents to join its quest to foray into decentralized technologies. According to Cheddar, the little-known team now sports over 40 employees, which include blockchain-centric developers and an array of former members of PayPal’s top brass. While these details are known, Facebook has been hesitant to reveal what its newfangled branch is working on. Some sources claim that the team is looking into creating its own crypto asset, while others claim the Silicon Valley pillar has its eye on decentralizing facets of its platforms.

Albacore, a startup that has remained quite discrete until now, has created an app that allows anyone with a simple click of a button to sign a message in the genesis block of bitcoin, definitively proving the world (not really) that they are Satoshi Nakamoto. The Firm says they created the application as a kind of joke to unmask Craig wright’s fraudulent efforts to try to convince incautious people that he is the creator of bitcoin. The firm does not hesitate to call the man behind bitcoin SV by the nickname “Faketoshi,” which he earned after his trick was discovered. “With everyone seemingly trying to prove they are Satoshi (looking at you Craig Wright and ...

  • Whether You Bought Bitcoin (BTC) at $1,800 or $3,000 Won’t Matter in 5 Years: Crypto Analyst
    Your Bitcoin Cost Basis Won’t Matter In Five Years Since Bitcoin (BTC) began to fall just thirteen months ago, investors have done their best to time the bottom. Some have been taking the safe, smart route, purchasing BTC on a normal basis to dollar-cost average in, while others have been a tad more irrational, purchasing cryptocurrencies whenever it suits their emotions. Yet, one analyst claims that by this point, it won’t matter whether your Bitcoin cost basis is $1,800, $3,000, or any other figure in this range in three to five years. The analyst in question is Josh Rager, an industry personality and technical analyst that has garnered tens of thousands of followers on Twitter. In response to a quip from The Crypto Dog about Bitcoin’s bottom, Rager explained that as BTC has already retraced 85% from its top, “what’s ...

  • Ethereum (ETH) Long Positions Skyrocket as Constantinople Nears, But Analysts Expect Post-Fork Plummet
    Over the past month Ethereum (ETH) has seen some overwhelmingly positive price action, surging from lows of $104 to highs of over $150. Part of this price surge may be due to its upcoming Constantinople hard fork, which will offer the crypto multiple enhancements and will reduce its future inflation rates, which will likely be positive for the cryptocurrency in the long-term. Despite this, many analysts are now warning traders that Ethereum will likely see increased selling pressure at the time of, or after, the event, which is in-line with the age-old trader credo of “buy the rumor, sell the news.” Ethereum’s Upcoming Constantinople Hard Fork May Lead ETH’s Price to Plunge At the time of writing, Ethereum is trading up nearly 3% at its current price of $149.

And although for NEO the decision of a single developer is not enough to measure its success, it is always important to take into account the opinions of third parties, especially if they come from a team behind one of the most important dApps of the blockchain A few days ago, the developers of Effect AI, one of NEO’s top dApps, conducted an AMA in their official Telegram group.

This particular pennant is quite sizable as it is consolidating at the top of a 12% market rally that pushed the price to test the $4,000 range. A general price target for an upward breakout of a pennant is calculated by taking the length of the run upward (called the “pole”) prior to consolidation and extending it from the point ...

  • The Pros and Cons of Investing in an ETF Versus Buying Cryptocurrencies
    An Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) is an investment fund that tracks prices of an underlying asset. It trades much the same as a stock. It brings together contributions from several individuals and puts them into different securities. An investor can buy or sell an ETF’s holdings to diverse market participants. ETFs provide investment options that feature prominently in digital platforms. Several applications have been made to the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for a Bitcoin EFT. The most recent re-submission was made by American exchange operator CBOE Global Markets in collaboration with VanEck and SolidX. The approval of a Bitcoin ETF could be phenomenal. It would boost Bitcoins’ price to massive figures since investors would be able to invest freely through the ETF. With the continuous maturing of the crypto market coupled with transparency, there is greater likelihood ...

  • Analyst Claims Bitcoin Must Break Above $4,000 Or BTC Will Face Strong Rejection
    Bitcoin is once again beginning to creep towards its strong resistance level at $4,000 following a relatively involatile trading session over the past couple of days. Although BTC has seen some incredibly bullish momentum over the past few weeks and has firmly established the low-$3,000 region as a strong level of support, its upwards ascent stalled once it was rejected at $4,000. Now, one analyst claims that breaking decisively above $4,000 in the near-future is critical for Bitcoin, as doing so would break the “lower high bounce” trend that BTC has experienced consistently since reaching $20,000 in late-2017.
