Bitcoin Price Will Be Golden in 2020

Bitcoin Price Will Be Golden in 2020 Thanks to Limited Supply, Increasing Use: Bloomberg Report

Increasing global uncertainties and a weak dollar will likely push more investors into bitcoin as it becomes recognized as a store of value. The cryptocurrency’s fixed supply will further drive price increases throughout the year, Bloomberg analysts predict.

Bloomberg’s 2020 crypto outlook report, published Monday, predicts bitcoin’s price could move to the top of its 2019 range and retest the $14,000 high at a time when a weak dollar and stock market volatility continue and geopolitical tensions increase.

Vibrator a finalist for CES 2020 Last Gadget Standing

By  

A vibrator that can be controlled through a mobile app is a finalist for CES 2020’s Last Gadget Standing award.

This year marks the first time sex technology products can qualify for awards or be showcased as part of the health and wellness category during the tech-focused trade show, which runs Jan. 7 to 10 in Las Vegas and is sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association.

The smart vibrator, created by Oakland, Calif.-based startup Lioness, may look like a basic sex toy but it bills itself as the first vibrator to use data — its patented biofeedback technology — to improve the user’s experience.

How to build a Bitcoin Lightning node for just $150

Do you want money YOU can send instantaneously to anyone, anywhere in the world? Here’s how you can do so.

By Tim Copeland

Bitcoin is the future of money, they say. And we’re not doubting that. But, while the Bitcoin network is great at making large payments that don’t need to be settled quickly, it’s too expensive for making everyday, small payments.

Enter the Lightning Network: a second-layer solution built on top of the Bitcoin network that allows anyone to send bitcoin to each other instantly, for near-zero fees. But to use Lightning, you need to have a Lightning node. And sure, you could use a custodial solution to connect to the network, where somebody else makes the Lightning payment on your behalf. You could put your trust in third-party manufacturers and buy a ready-made Lightning node like the Casa Node. But what’s the fun in that?

There’s a much better way—for your self-sovereignity and your budget.

Apple May Remove Coinbase’s Mobile DApp Browser From App Store

By Adrian Zmudzinski

After Google removed Ethereum-based decentralized application (DApp) browser MetaMask from its Android application store, Apple may now force Coinbase to remove the DApp browser feature from its crypto wallet application.

According to a Reddit post published on Dec. 28, United States-based cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase warned its users that in order to comply with Apple’s mobile App Store policy, it might be forced to remove the DApp browser feature from its wallet application. Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong commented on the post:

“Coinbase CEO here. This is really unfortunate to see. Apple seems to be eliminating usage of Dapps from the App Store. […] Presumably this would extend to other wallets as well (Trust, Argent, Metamask) it’s beyond Coinbase and IMO a very big threat to the ecosystem.”

Can Smell-O-Vision Save VR?

Consumers have been slow to purchase VR headsets, largely due to price and limited content. But several start-ups are making devices that will give people a whiff of the virtual world.

Smell-O-Vision was introduced at the 1939 World’s Fair in New York City. Created by a Swiss inventor named Hans Laube, it piped a variety of scents through a network of tiny tubes to individual seats in a movie theater. Needless to say, Smell-O-Vision wafted into oblivion.
