KuCoin Exchange – The Basics

Kucoin is one of the many new cryptocurrency exchanges available for those in search of a modern and secure platform to trade on.

It was launched in September 2017 by a group who had already built strong reputations at industry giants, such as GF Securities, Ant Financial, Youling, Jianbang Communication and iBOX PAY.

Kucoin has a very clean and modern layout throughout the website and this extends to the markets overview screen where you can see the available trading pairs and can choose to trade alt coins against BTC, ETH, KCS, NEO & USDT. There isn’t a fiat currency option currently, so users have to use the USDT (Tether) which is the digital token supposedly backed by USD (yet to be proved, so I don’t take long term trades in USDT). Soon it is expected that a fiat trading pair will be supported, possibly USD for a start with more to follow.

Kucoin is among the most straightforward exchanges to use, even for those who are new to the cryptocurrency world and is famous for being an early adopter of new, low-cap coins. This is one of a few reasons to love Kucoin. Another huge incentive is the relatively high withdrawal allowance without KYC verification (you can withdraw up to 2BTC per day without having to send your ID/Passport scans or other sensitive data).

Once you log into your Kucoin account, you can adjust the various settings, keep track of your assets, or manage your rewards, such as invitation bonuses and Kucoin bonuses. As a member of the exchange you are also provided with an affiliate link to share with friends and help grow their community. For this you are rewarded on a commission-based system and paid in KCS (their native coin).

Staking KCS (buy+hold) would also provide you with dividends (daily) from the fees collected by the company on their members trading activities. These are shared across all members in accordance with their staked KCS amounts. In my previous post I discussed the details of the staking benefits.

I highly recommend that you enable 2 factor authentication (2FA) to add an extra layer of security to your account. Any emails and confirmations for deposits or your register email should also be kept for your own record. Customer service is quite responsive on their web-based online chat or via a support ticket.

Why you should register EOS addresses before June 1st

For those who might have missed the memo, EOS is moving to its native blockchain from June 2018. Currently the tokens are Ethereum based, ERC20 type tokens and from June they will move away from Ethereum and will start their own blockchain. This means that we (EOS token hodlers) will have to do what is called a “coin swap” but it is a very simple process.

First, let me point out that if you are keeping your tokens on an exchange, most likely they will deal with this and you will not have to do anything. Binance has already announced support for the token-swap but Bittrex has not made a statement as of yet (May 2018) so it might be best to do this yourself. The easiest option you have is Exodus – this wallet provides the most simple and straightforward way to register your wallet address. Take a look at my video tutorial to see what you need to do:

Bitcoin ETF rejected today. Price dips by 15%

Bitcoin had been soaring in recent days on the anticipation of a ruling by the SEC on the listing of a bitcoin backed ETF. It jumped to $1279.00 in the last hour before the result was announced. Then moments later it was down to $1150.00 and later reached as low as $1060.00

how-can-i-buy-bitcoins-630x382

The event today was an important ruling by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that rejected the proposed Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF [a trading exchange similar to Forex and the stock market]

The reason the ETF was not approved, according to the SEC, was because bitcoin is “too susceptible to fraud due to its unregulated nature.”

This is quite wry coming from the ultra-corrupt and anti-free market SEC. The market needs no regulation by an outside and violent entity (government) operating through the use of stolen funds (taxes) to manipulate, extort and attack people who do not pay enough bribes (political donations).

Bitcoin, in fact, is perfectly regulated the way it should be. By the blockchain itself. Bitcoin is 100% regulated by the blockchain which is a ledger system that is completely transparent, available to all, and unchangeable by any one entity.

In fact, “regulation” in and of itself is a tool used by branches of crime syndicates such as the SEC. Luckily, bitcoin cannot actually be regulated by the SEC, which makes it far more secure and less susceptible to manipulation and corruption.

Many in the bitcoin community were quite happy to hear that the SEC did not approve the ETF. Aside from not wanting the blessings of a corrupt, criminal entity they also said it limits the ability of some to manipulate the market, via shorting and other means that would be made easier via the ETF.

We now live in a very digital world. The largest population today is not China’s. It’s the internet. The largest economy in the world is not the United States. It’s the internet. The largest postal carrier is not the DHL, UPS or FEDEX. It’s the internet.

Bitcoin is internet’s money. It’s the defacto currency adopted by those on the internet. It has no state nor borders. No bank can control it. It’s not about “what country will adopt bitcoin first”. It’s about bitcoin not needing a country to exist.

That is what makes bitcoin so valuable. And, it is not going away anytime soon.

If you aren’t yet using Bitcoin, you are missing out on a very swift, easy and cheap way of transacting money. If you have not yet purchased any Bitcoin yet, you are missing on a massive earning potential. In the past year alone, the price of Bitcoin tripled, that’s 300% gain for those who had it already. In the coming year it will possibly reach around $2500-$3000 and then it will continue to rise due to its limited supply and ever increasing demand.

This is just a projection, but one that has been agreed and shared by almost every financial expert in the field. Make no mistake, Bitcoin is a must-have in any online entrepreneur’s portfolio. Don’t let it pass you by.
