YOU ARE ONE WHO INVESTIGATES

YOU ARE ONE WHO INVESTIGATES, RIGHT?

DOES THIS DESCRIBE YOU?

You arrive at this blog searching non Bitcoin terms - but - interestingly, you do have an interest in finding out more about Bitcoin. You probably don't know what the term Blockchain means either. Or, that there are over 800 branded "coins" like Bitcoin on the blockchain technology. You know that you would like to know more - but don't know where to start or who to ask. What luck that you are here today. Here's this blogs best advice.................. The sidebar has "Bitcoin" books and "Bitcoin" links - exploring any of these can be helpful for your learning curve....... But, let's say you simply want to get your feet wet - to actually OWN some Bitcoin - and you are simply wanting to know the first steps on obtaining some Bitcoin............. Cool - because it's not hard to do - but - you DO need to know a few things about OWNING Bitcoin...... First things first - Bitcoin in 2017 is totally legit and you are going to have to identify yourself, and verify yourself, to buy OR to "mine" Bitcoin............Next - there is only a place or two to buy Bitcoin at the lowest price - the main company is called Coinbase. Millions of people have Coinbase accounts. MOST people in America buy their first Bitcoin from Coinbase....... Now, interestingly, Coinbase has an interesting "bonus" to those who sign up - and buy their first 100.00 USD of Bitcoin. BUT - the bonus involves USING AN AFFILIATE link to JOIN Coinbase; I'll explain what and why.......First, ONLY IF you use an affiliate link do you get the Coinbase bonus - this is my Coinbase Affiliate Link - https://www.coinbase.com/join/m4ever - IF you use it when you join and then eventually buy your FIRST 100.00 USD of Bitcoin from Coinbase - THEN THEY GIVE YOU 10.00 USD OF FREE BITCOIN - (They Also Reward Me). It's Coinbase's way to welcome American People to Bitcoin.....IF YOU DO NOT USE THE AFFILIATE LINK TO SIGN UP - THEY DO NOT REWARD YOU EVER FOR YOUR FIRST 100 USD - IT'S THAT SIMPLE...DO YOU WANT 10 FREE USD OF BITCOIN... You too will have an Affiliate Link after you join - make sure to share that with your friends when they want to buy their first Bitcoin. Also, when you join Coinbase... You will automatically also have a Bitcoin wallet (and address) - you will need a Bitcoin Wallet to acquire BTC from the only other method of OWNING Bitcoin - to "Mine" it.... Yes, it's true...you really can become a miner................ And, to some people that means REALLY getting into the entire Blockchain scene, learning the language, becoming experts, and eventually buying Mining Equipment...... And, that is fine for some people. BUT...it is time consuming - AND - Bitcoin machines are notoriously "hot and loud" and somewhat expensive to run as they consume lots of electricity.......Which FINALLY brings us to the last quick tutorial for you... the news that you can also RENT "mining" equipment - by buying what is called Hashpower - from a reputable company..... UNFORTUNATELY, reputable mining companies, are few and far between - indeed - I can ONLY recommend the one I am using myself - Genesis-Mining...... they are a long running mining farm with low electricity costs - and over 500,000 people worldwide are already "mining" with them from buying Hashpower contracts. That hashpower is assigned to your rented machines - which "mine" cryptocurrency daily - you are sent your earnings the following day.... at Genesis Mining there are multiple coins to "mine" and you set the mix of coins you "mine" - and you can change your mix at any time. The return on your investment will ultimately depend on the price of Bitcoin and the coins you choose to "mine". Obviously, if you re-invest your returns in buying additional hashpower - your ROI will be quicker. Indeed, after a number of months (less than a year currently) you will be "up" and earning daily bitcoin value indefinitely....it's a longer term view - if a year is to be considered long term. And, like Coinbase, Genesis-Mining also has a "win-win" Affiliate Program for new users - IF you use a PROMO code to buy your "mining contract/Hashpower" - you save 3% on your cost (you pay full price if you don't use the promo/coupon code) - AND - they also provide me a bit of FREE Hashpower for bringing you into the "mining" spectrum. "Mining Contracts" begin at ONLY 30.00 USD,it's a no brainer - Here's my Genesis Mining Code (you can see it in other places on this blog too) lcS0Un - use the code when you sign up. Just click the links, or click the banner at the top of the sidebar. Thanks.

The `Scarcity' Segmentation Of Virtual Currencies --- Examined (PART ONE) Coins Over 58 Million Available

A couple weeks ago I employed some of my natural `market research' skills by examining one aspect... one attribute - of the different `virtual currencies'... coins available... and that is... `the number available' - or what amounts to scarcity. Yes, the number available (using one `best source CoinMarketCap.Com)... such as ...does a `coin' have just a `handful' available, or, are there literally BILLIONS available. (This research into this data was done about May 7th.) Many coin traders have only the vaguest ideas about most coins... despite being able to tell you that Bitcoin will never exceed 22 million (or whatever the exact figure is). 

One reason I did this background legwork was to answer the question - Which of these `scarcity' strategies `works', at getting a coin the `attention and awareness' it needs to break through the enormous `clutter of coins' currently on the marketplace exchanges and beyond? Is it the `here I am and I am billions strong wanting to be the NEXT BIG thing? Or, is it the `I wanna be the next BITCOIN' positioning (similar number of coins to bitcoin) ... sought by many coins `with improvements' to the bitcoin technology. 

Or, should the coin be daring and emulate the `scarcity' factor in spades... limiting the number of coins available to `just a few' in comparison to Bitcoin... and hope, somehow, that a real `scarcity' value is subscribed to and ascribed to the coin itself... in an era where most coins have a near zero awareness with the general public. Perhaps `the scarcity branding' will be accomplished with an expensive sounding coin brand name? 

Ah yes..... The appropriate branding - essential to all coins .... but perhaps the sweet spot isn't scarcity (?) ...... indeed,  should the positioning on how many coins will be available by the developers be something in-between the HUGE apparent hole in the above... a coin NOT with BILLIONS... but substantially more than BTC, and filling the 20 million to 1 billion coins available positioning

Hmmm. Interesting. I wonder. So, I did the digging I first promised you.

So, what did my analysis find - about the 552 coins listed on CoinMarketCap.Com just a few weeks ago? Sorted by `number available'? 

Well below is a summary ... and a guide of sorts to understand ... probably... just how much `potential' ANY coin really has `if is has a certain volume of coins'... regardless if the developers dream is a dollar a coin (which is about 0.004btc=1.00fiat)..... `a common pipe dream of all levels of scarcity and all types of coins'.

Enough already right? .... are you ready? Here goes... lets start with the Top 50 coins with the `most available' - you better be a coin with a BIG name for this branding... and as you can see below - you will not be disappointed with the biggest available coin:


Segment 1 - Most Abundant Coins Available, top 50
THE BILLIONS AND BILLIONS SEGMENT

In this category, Colossuscoin, with 312 BILLION available takes the cake... at least it has a name to match its Colossus number of coinage, right?... And, the top 50 trails down to the measly 2.1 BILLION available for UFOcoin. BTW, these two coins have market caps below 20K and daily volumes under 20 bucks. Hardly an indication of automatic success by having billions and billions. Tracking these random coins that make up the first and last of a category will also give some insights as to just how HARD the alt coin world is to compete within.

But the real BANG of any of the 10 segments is the CHANCE to be BIG... and this segment DOES THE BEST overall with (10-12) coins in the Top 50 Marketcap AND Top 10 Marketcap (of all 552 coins)
Indeed.... these 10 coins were in each days Top 50 marketcap that I checked:
(shown with fiat value)
these 6 were ranked #11-50 in marketcap

         FIAT
NEM 0.0001
MINT 0.00001
REDD 0.00001
INFINTE 0.000003
BYTE 0.00002
DARK NOTE 0.00006

Segment 1 - TOP 10 MARKETCAP COINS
                           FIAT/USD
#8 - BITSHARES 0.003
#7 DOGE 0.00009
#5 STELLAR 0.0027
#2 RIPPLE 0.00076

EVERY COIN ABOVE WITH A VALUE OF UNDER
10,000 SATOSHIS (0.0000XXXXbtc)

So, big things can come in BIG packages - but, as of now, a self limiting value under 1/3 a cent each for the very best positioned. Indeed, should a price breakthru happen to this category or even a coin in this category - the implications could be enormous.
IMO... the `second bitcoin' will likely come from this segment, but the competition is fierce at the top - and other segments of scarcity also do quite well in gaining real value per coin and per cointype. 
=================================
(You will notice from here on out that I follow the same format as above in bringing each segment to you for analysis.)
------------------------------------------------------

Segment 2 - Very Abundant Coins Available, top 51-100
THE BILLIONS AND HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS SEGMENT

In this category, ANIMEcoin, with 1.9 BILLION available takes the honors... And, the top 100 trails down to the measly 176 MILLION available for Einsteinumcoin. BTW, these two coins have market caps of 4k and 25K and daily volumes under 80 bucks. The randomness of these picks representing the segments is one way of accessing the value of segments in general too.

But the real BANG of any of the 10 segments, as mentioned before,  is the CHANCE to be BIG... and this segment does the worst overall with only 4 coins in the Top 50 Marketcap AND one Top 10 Marketcap coin 
These 4 coins were in the Top 50 marketcap that I checked:
(shown with fiat value)
these 3 were ranked #11-50 in marketcap

         FIAT
NUSHARES 0.002
SYS 
GULDEN 0.001


Segment 2 - TOP 10 MARKETCAP COIN
                           FIAT/USD
#6 - NXT 0.009


EVERY COIN ABOVE WITH A VALUE OF UNDER
10,000 SATOSHIS (0.0000XXXXbtc)

So, big things can come in BIG packages - but, as of now, the self limiting value for these hugely available coins remains at under a cent each for the very best positioned. Indeed, should a price breakthrough happen to this category or even a coin in this category - the implications could again be enormous.
IMO... the `second bitcoin' based on what is charted above -  will likely not come from this segment.
=================================
------------------------------------------------

Segment 3- Abundant Coins Available, top 101-150
THE TENS OF MILLIONS AND HUNDREDS OF MILLONS SEGMENT

In this category, TAKcoin, with 169 MILLION available takes the honors... And, the top 150 trails down to the measly 58 MILLION available for NAVAJOcoin. BTW, these two coins have market caps of 1k and 250K and daily volumes OF 16 bucks @300 bucks.

But the real BANG of any of the 10 segments is the CHANCE to be BIG... and this segment does the 2nd best overall with  7 coins in the Top 50 Marketcap BUT  had NONE of theTop 10 Marketcap coins.

These 7  coins were in the Top 50 marketcap that I checked:
(shown with fiat value)
these 7 were ranked #11-50 in marketcap

                       FIAT
NAVAJO 0.004
BLACK 0.013
WORLD 0.003
DNOTES 0.011
CRYPTI 0.003
TILE 0.003
FUEL 0.019

The top coins now approach 2 cents fiat in value each - real money.

STILL
EVERY COIN ABOVE WITH A VALUE OF UNDER
10,000 SATOSHIS (0.0000XXXXbtc)

So, big things can come in BIG packages - but, as of now, the self limiting value for these hugely available coins remains at under 2 cents each for the very best positioned. Indeed, should a price breakthrough happen to this category or even a coin in this category - the implications could again be enormous.
IMO... the `second bitcoin' based on what is seen (not even one top 10 marketcap) -  will likely not come from this segment.
------------------------------------------------------------
========================================
So... a quick rule of thumb on any new coin you are considering investing in... ask and research how many are available of this coin? Because IF you see a pricing in excess of 0.0000xxxx and they are in any of the above categories, beware, ... in other words - a coin that prices itself at say 0.00015000 satoshi out of the gate upon introduction to the public ---- you can BET that coin is going DOWN in value - IF it has more than 58 million coins available.
===================================
Part Two will tackle categories 4,5,6,7 - the post is already written and posted, just keep reading DOWN this page - be ready to be enlightened soon.

  1. Surely the less there are of a virtual coin the higher the value should be, I consider that this is the reason Bitcoin has a finite amount that can be mined via algorithm.

  2. Indeed John.... as you may not know... many coins are totally premined with fewer counts than Bitcoin... everything depends on perception of value indeed.
