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.

By  

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

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.

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.

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.”
