Servus, my name is Lukas. I am from Tyrol / Austria and have been dealing with the topic of Bitcoin, Blockchain, and co daily for over 6 years. On Medium and Youtube, I combine knowledge from business and technology, paired with the most diverse, philosophical approaches about the world of cryptocurrencies.

I have always been a young rebel who stands for his opinion and takes responsibility for it. The time aspect has always played a big role in my life-both as a student and now as a freethinker and entrepreneur.

After my development over the last 5 years as a…

As the Bitcoin price and the rest of the crypto market are primarily driven by technical analysis and the wealth of charting software available, the order book is a powerful tool to gauge the probabilities of market direction.

The reading of buying and sell demand in the order book is called “order flow.” This can help day traders who are scalping the market to improve their profitability.

But order flow also helps all types of traders to identify spoof orders outside of day traders. Especially in a market that is notorious for fake volumes

“Spoofing” is a practice in which…

Positive Cardano news for ADA fans. As Ethereum’s number one follower, Cardano (ADA) can now look back on another important success: The first smart contract test on Alonzo has been successful.

All people use money. Mostly without thinking about what money is and who it benefits. It is simply an illusion and is used for fraud.

Money is used for the exchange of goods and services

Almost all people today use the money to exchange goods or services. For example, a manufacturer of machines gives his workers money for his work. He can use the money to buy bread from the baker. The baker takes the money to the butcher and gets sausage there. To produce the sausage, a machine is needed, which the butcher buys from the manufacturer. Thus the circle of money is closed.

But ultimately, every purchase remains…

Cryptocurrencies are currently more hype than ever before. Especially the forefather of all coins and tokens, Bitcoin, is keeping the scene busy. The reason for this is probably the rocket-like rise in the price since its release in 2009.

According to a study, just over a fifth of Australians prefer to invest in cryptocurrencies rather than conventional asset classes.

Confidence in conventional forms of investment is declining worldwide. In particular, falling interest rates on savings accounts lead more and more people to look for alternatives.

The Ethereum blockchain is best known for its ability to support smart contracts. This makes it possible to use more than just one cryptocurrency on the blockchain, as is the case with Bitcoin, for example. Developers, entrepreneurs, and organizations can also use the Ethereum blockchain to provide their own use cases, payment methods, cryptocurrencies, or apps in the blockchain.

In most cases, the basis for the use cases are tokens. These are objects in the blockchain that can be exchanged, traded, and also sold. Tokens can also be created themselves and used for their own purposes.

Many people are predicting a rising or falling Bitcoin price. The Winklevoss twins are even more optimistic than many other people and still predict a price of 500,000 USD in this decade.

The Winklevoss twins caused a stir when they accused Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg of intellectual theft. They claimed that the idea for the social network had come from them and that Zuckerberg had copied it and put it into practice. The twins not only won in court but also made headlines as early Bitcoin investors.

“Bitcoin is Gold 2.0”

Since then, the twins have been among the most popular Bitcoin investors. Among…
