Alternative Currency? – Here’s How To Make Your Own

For those interested in cryptocurrencies, you can create your own cryptocurrency. Of course, it won’t be worth anything just yet but in the future, if you succeed, you’ll have a valuable crypto-currency that will be impossible to replicate. There are various ways to participate such as by mining or investing in ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings). A great way to start is by signing up for an exchange so that you can buy some crypto of your own and sell it when and if the time comes. 

The most important thing is that this knowledge doesn’t stop there – take a look at popular platforms such as BitcoinTalk or Reddit and find out what people are talking about. Join cryptocurrency forums and learn everything you can. You’ll be surprised by how many people are willing to help you if they see that you care about this crypto-world

If you are interested in investing in ICOs, the best place to start is with a platform called CryptoGo. This is a platform that has made it easier for people to invest in ICOs without having to worry about storing all of these currencies and tokens on their own. It’s absolutely free of charge which means there is no reason to not give it a shot!

Now that I’ve made you curious, here is a general overview of how you can create your own crypto-currency.

Step 1:

First thing’s first – you need to find some free online space to host your code. There are tons of websites that are willing to help and even though they might be a little scary, they’re usually pretty good at explaining the process. For this example, however, I suggest the CodePlex website (https://www.codeplex.com/wikis/index) or GitHub (https://github.com/).

Just to be clear, CodePlex is a website that is owned by Microsoft and GitHub is owned by Google. Both are free (for now) and are great places to start.

Step 2:

Now that you have the platform, you need to set up the code for your cryptocurrency. Although this might sound intimidating it really isn’t because there are several libraries that can drastically simplify the development of a cryptocurrency. This means that you will not have to create everything from scratch which can save a lot of time in the long run if you’re new to this world. Personally, I recommend using C++ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7BWL2BjOzA).

Step 3:

Now that you have an idea of how to create a cryptocurrency, it’s time to get the word out. First thing’s first – you’ll need some coins! For this step, all you need is a crypto wallet so that you have a safe place to keep your coins. There are tons of wallets out there but if you’re just starting out I would suggest CoinPayments (https://coinpayments.net/). This website will store your digital currency and will allow you to accept payments in various different forms such as PayPal or Bitcoins so make sure to store them there. FreeBitcoins.com (https://freebitcoins.com/xchange/signup) also gives you over 20 different free cryptocurrencies when you register as well.

Step 4:

The next step is to build up the community. For this, you will need an outlet that will let you spread your message. If you’re more of a programmer type person I would suggest Reddit (https://www.reddit.com/), GitHub (https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/), Linux Kernel Mailing List (https://lkml.org/) or BitcoinTalk (https://bitcointalk.org). Each of these platforms has forums and can help you gain information on what to do next as well as a niche group of people who are in it for the crypto-currency revolution.

As for other outlets, I would suggest Bitcointalk, BitcoinTalk or I don’t know. It’s not exactly a good idea to try and spread your message across too many outlets but just pick one or two that you think might fit your needs. Messaging the guys on FreeBitcoins.com isn’t a bad idea either!

Step 5:

The last step is to add some value to your new cryptocurrency. This means that you should either create a website or make sure that people will be able to use it. The best way to do this is first by creating a wallet on a website like CoinPayments or FreeBitcoins.com and then by making a game that uses cryptocurrency as the currency. Good examples are http://cryptogames.space (https://cryptogames.space/) or http://www.cryptokitties.co/ (http://www.cryptokitties.co/). If you think these games are too childish or simple, there are tons of other alternatives for example Ether Dungeons (http://ethedungeons.io/) which I believe is a great way to learn more about cryptocurrency. The last bit of advice I have on this step is to remember the blockchain and how it forms the backbone of cryptocurrency.

How To Find The Next 100x Doge Meme Coins

It is undeniable that the cryptocurrency industry is on a steep incline. With Bitcoin and Ethereum leading the way, there are a lot of people that want in on the action but don’t know-how. That’s where I come in with my knowledge of blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies to teach you all about how to find this next 100x coin before it gains traction.

What is a 100x coin? Exactly what it sounds like. It is a coin that has the potential to gain 100x, in the shortest amount of time possible. This one will be a must-have for every investor and potential investor.

What is Dogecoin?

So Dogecoin is a cryptocurrency based on the internet meme Doge. The creator, named Jackson Palmer, released the coin via a tweet in Dec 2013 and called it.. you guessed it, a joke! Fast forward to 2015 and here we are.

Dogecoin is a cryptocurrency that features open-source software that can be used in addition to many other cryptocurrencies out there. The currency was created by Jackson Palmer and Billy Markus in Dec 2013 but didn’t gain traction until the community began to value this coin for its use as an online tipping system that could be used on popular sites like Reddit, Twitter and Twitch TV for streaming video games among other things. Funny enough… the term “doge” actually comes from the slang of “dog” as in the animal and leaves you wondering why anyone would want to name a coin after that!?

So What Makes This Coin So Special?

Simple answer, community. We can see from the market cap chart above that Doge has been putting in work for the past couple of years. With an ever-increasing market cap overall, it is no surprise that people are starting to take notice in this coin. The thing about this coin is that it doesn’t gain traction without good reason to do so. It isn’t some pump and dumps coin like most out there. It has solidified its value as a currency used for online tipping.

It started out in the world of cryptocurrencies with a great community. A community that helped grow the coin and was responsible for pushing the market cap to where it is today. With that being said, we cannot just jump into Doge expecting to get somewhere. This coin is not going anywhere fast, but with patience, you will see it grow into something special.. something that could change your life if you play your cards right.

The best thing you can do if you want to invest in Doge is to hold. HOLD! Don’t even think about it. Don’t even look at the charts, because all that will do is make your stomach turn. If you have already done this then I am sorry, but you are just going to have to sit back and wait until that coin goes through the roof!

The key here when it comes down to investing in Dogecoin is patience. You need to know when it’s time to put your money into this coin and out of all of the others out there. I will say it again, HOLD. If you don’t know how to do this then that’s ok. You can always visit the Dogecoin subreddit and ask for help there.

So What is the best way to invest in Dogecoin?

If you want to take a stab at investing in Dogecoin, I would recommend exploring the following methods:

First off you need to buy Bitcoin or Ethereum. Below I have listed many cryptocurrency exchanges, but keep in mind that these are not the only ones out there and it’s important to research what exchange works best for you.

To put my advice into action on the next page I recommend using Coinbase as your first stop. Coinbase is one of the most popular ways for people to buy Bitcoin as they have a variety of coins to choose from, but for us here, it’s all about Dogecoin!

Once you have purchased your Bitcoin or Ethereum you now need to purchase Dogecoin… easy right? Yes! It’s ridiculously easy. All you need to do is go through Coinbase and search for Dogecoin. After you purchase your Dogecoins, just wait a little while and then get ready because this coin is going places.

Keep in mind that this is not a get rich quick scheme. This is a long term investment, but it will be worth your time and effort if you have patience in finding the next 100x meme coin!

What exactly is a Satoshi?

The smallest unit of Bitcoin is 0.00000001 BTC and this is what we call a “Satoshi”. This unit was named after the founder of Bitcoin. Satoshi Natomoto was the user name used to sign the original Bitcoin whitepaper and the username “Satoshi” was used on Bitcointalk.

How can I earn 10 Satoshi for free?

Lucky for you, you’ve found the right website! FreeBitcoins.com offers a free cryptocurrency Faucet that gives 10 Satoshi per hour. Check us out at: https://freebitcoins.com/faucet/

Free Dogecoin (doge)

Earning free Dogecoin (DOGE) in 2021 is much more difficult than it was in December 2013! However, it’s still possible to earn a few free DOGE and withdrawal them to your own Dogecoin wallet. This article is going to break down five ways that you can go from 0 DOGE to a few DOGE without spending a single dollar of real money on them.

Dogecoin Faucets

The fastest way to earn free Dogecoins is by using a cryptocurrency faucet that supports DOGE. Crypto faucets are a method of coin distribution where the user usually proves they are human by solving a captcha and the website rewards the user with the free coins. Cryptocurrency faucets can often be found on Altcoin casinos, cryptocurrency exchanges, or other Dogecoin services. (FreeBitcoins.com is an example of a cryptocurrency exchange & and Dogecoin faucet service.)

All Dogecoin faucets use a different method of distribution for actually giving the coins. I haven’t seen a faucet that gave directly on the DOGE blockchain since 2014. Most faucets now use account systems because it’s much cheaper than paying a Dogecoin miner fee for every send. The FreeBitcoins Dogecoin Faucet, for example, sends a small amount of Dogecoin directly into the user’s DOGE exchange account. After the coins have been credited into the faucet user’s Dogecoin exchange account, they are then free to either trade them or save up enough DOGE to make a withdrawal on the blockchain.

Here is a video of the FreeBitcoins.com faucet being used for Dogecoin and selling them for Bitcoin: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4-66NsDQO8

Buying Dogecoin on Altcoin Exchanges

Another way of earning “free Dogecoin” is by earning some other free cryptocurrency and then selling that other cryptocurrency in order to buy Dogecoin! This is potentially a very lucrative strategy. Try to find a cryptocurrency that is new and not many people have heard about… thus, people give it away for free and then sell it for Dogecoin!

Our website has several other altcoins that you can easily find for free and then liquidate for real Dogecoin. (Keep reading to learn more.)

Here is a link to our FreeBitcoins.com Dogecoin exchange (XChange).

Dogecoin Casinos

Dogecoin casinos can be a wonderful place to get free Dogecoin from player promotion and other free casino giveaways. I’ve personally received probably over 10,000 DOGE from casino promotions since 2013. A lot of time casinos give away free coins in contests or when the casino first opens. Casinos also spend a lot of coins on advertising as well. You can earn this advertising money they spend by selling signature space on your BitcoinTalk account or if you have a cryptocurrency-related Blog/Youtube/Instagram or any other social media. These casinos often have automated affiliate programs that may be lucrative to join, but be careful because you don’t want to recommend a scam to your friends on accident!

Dogecoin Chatrooms

Dogecoin chatrooms are WONDERFUL places to score free Dogecoin and other cryptocurrencies. These chatrooms can often be found in online casinos that accept Dogecoin or on IRC chat-like services. Basically, anywhere that a lot of Dogecoin users get together and share memes… is a good place to try to earn some free Dogecoin.

I would even qualify the Dogecoin Reddit in this category. Make a good post and it’s very likely someone sends you one or two DOGE for free! I’m not a huge fan of Reddit, but Dogecoin has done well on Reddit for quite some time and there is a lot of users there.

Other Ideas You May Not Have Thought of To Earn Free Dogecoins

A great way to earn Dogecoin is through making funny memes, but with Dogecoins popularity lately… it’s much easier to buy Dogecoin than it is to earn free Dogecoin.

This blogs author’s recommendation is for users to check out a website called SuchWow.xyz. SuchWow is a community memeing website that is based around a little-known cryptocurrency called “Wownero” (WOW). Wownero is a fork of Monero, but clearly has lots of inspiration from the Doge meme.

The good news is that Wownero is really easy to find and people are very generous with it. If you make a Wownero user giggle, there is a good chance you get a tip sent directly via the Wownero blockchain.

All FreeBitcoins XChange users get a free Wownero address. After registering, click the button “Deposit” at the top of any XChange page. You are more than welcome to use this WOW address on SuchWow and collect your tips easily without downloading a Wownero wallet.

Users can sell their free Wonero to Bitcoin and then use those Bitcoin to buy Dogecoin! Boom! Easy. These dogecoins then can be withdrawn or you are welcome to accumulate your DOGE balance on FreeBitcoins.com.

Conclusion

While earning free Dogecoin isn’t as easy as it was in 2013 or 2014 it’s still very possible. Keep doing your research about Dogecoin and other cryptocurrencies. Finding the right altcoin can be a life-changing event if it’s done right, but you have to be careful because there are so many projects out there that have the intent of being popular for 12-months and then moving on to their next 12-month project!!!

The Only 3 Bitcoin Wallets You Will Ever Need

Having a safe Bitcoin wallet is the most important detail of being a cryptocurrency holder. You should be aware that a number of online Bitcoin Wallets are extremely dangerous. This is why most of our recommendations are easy-to-use cold Bitcoin wallets.

1. (Free Online Wallet) FreeBitcoins.com – FreeBitcoins offers a free Bitcoin wallet for anyone that signs up on our altcoin exchange. Not only will you receive a free BTC wallet, but you will also to other popular cryptocurrencies such as Clamcoin, Litecoin, Namecoin, Wownero, and others.

2. (Cold Wallet Wallet) Trezor – This is our go-to device for storing cryptocurrency long-term locally. Trezor’s are extremely easy to use and thus far have proven to be a safe device for users to trust. We highly recommend investing in a Trezor if you plan on being a “copy and paste” cryptocurrency user, & don’t desire to learn the guts of cryptocurrency. Trezors cost $60 USD for the base version and $194 for the fancy Model T. I have both… I think the $60 is fine honestly.

Trezor’s can also serve as a U2F (Universal 2nd-Factor) hardware token. This can be used to protect your Google account and other accounts.

3. (Bitcoin’s main wallet) Bitcoin Core – You will need to download and sync this wallet. This wallet makes you an actual part of Bitcoin potentially. It’s big and bulky, but it’s as secure as Bitcoin comes. I prefer the Trezor for my stuff on the go, but Bitcoin Core is likely safer.

Hacking ETrade – The Only Way To Earn A Living With Penny Stocks

Penny stocks are fucking garbage, and no one with any sense should contribute to the VAST majority of those markets. At one point in my life, I had a lot of fun trading that garbage until I realized two things:

1. I was a way bigger fish than the market could handle. It would take me days to liquidate positions that I had built up over a month because there simply wasn’t the liquidity that was required for my bankroll to flow in and out of the market without actually making the market. This was a blessing and curse; honestly, the lessons I learned here were extremely valuable for Cryptocurrency. (Crypo is/was this same issue times 100.)

2. Stock structure can change with a few signatures and fuck shareholders beyond belief. This can also happen in Cryptocurrency & Bitcoin, but people don’t really like talking about it & so far so good.


I did, however, find one sure way to make money while trading penny stocks. It required using ETrade’s platform.

ETrade would give new users “500 Commission-Free Trades” for signing up. What this actually meant was that ETrade would refund your first 500 trades the day after your trade.

I found that if I bought 500 shares of company ABC for $1 per share. ETrade would charge $500+$9.99 the day I purchased the stocks. The following day the refund for $9.99 would be added to my account.

I found that if I sold 1 share of ABC for $1. The most the ETrade system could charge me for the trade was $0.99; however, the following day, the system would still refund the $9.99!!! $9 profit from a $1 stock after one day of holding is a pretty awesome deal.

Each click was $9.99 for the first 250 clicks and then the pricing changed, but the same logic applied.

The lesson you can learn from this is to “Audit fucking everything”. It’s unreal how many millions of people don’t audit a fucking thing.

You maybe shocked to see what you find and what doors it can open for you. 🙂

(PS: ETrade fix this issue without giving me a fucking penny. Lol RIP, o well, and I didn’t get kneecapped either… so that’s a plus!)

Guides To Choose Your Wallet For Beginner’s

I will explain why you can use Bitcoin anonymously and talk about the different types of software, mobile and hardware wallets, including Bitcoin wallets for mobile phones, desktop and desktop computers. Mobile Bitcoin Wallet is specifically designed for mobile phones and offers several features that must be considered when verifying bitcoin wallets.

A popular Bitcoin wallet, for example, is Airbitz, which synergizes its Bitcoin wallet client capabilities so you can store all the right data and interact with the network intuitively and securely. 
    
With just a few clicks, you can create multiple Bitcoin wallets, check your transaction history, send Bitcoins to other addresses, and send and return Bitcoins. Once you’re done, you’ll have your Bitcoin wallet address that can be used to send, receive and store Bitcoins. You need your private key to move your Bitcoins from your Bitcoin address to another wallet. The private keys are stored in a secure location to protect them from external threats. 
    
Users should ensure that their Bitcoin wallets support the latest security measures to prevent the loss of Bitcoins. Of course, there are many other ways to store encrypted wallets, manage an address book, change or remove passphrases, secure individual private keys using paper or digital methods, delete and remove wallets, and create clocks – addresses only. 
    
So remember that if you ever lose the private key to your Bitcoin wallet, no one can help you, and you would lose access to all your funds. Electronic devices require very basic computer hardware to function, so it is best suited for those who have very old computers. 

If you use a desktop wallet and want to store a large amount of bitcoin, you must use a hardware wallet to sign transactions in it. As mentioned above, the Bitcoin wallets from Electrum are best suited if you have a very older computer.
    
When a Bitcoin wallet is used for the first time, the software creates a pool of new private keys that users can use for their transactions. When this happens, each Bitcoin wallet can use its secret data to sign and confirm transactions, provided buyers and sellers are the owners of their Bitcoin wallet. 
    
If the Bitcoin Core Client is installed on your Ubuntu system, you can manage your Bitcoin wallet account in the same way as any other Bitcoin account. The wallet stays on the computer for a certain time, usually a few days or weeks or even months. 
    
This type of wallet is the most convenient way to store Bitcoin because you can easily send and receive money on the go. It also helps that, unlike hardware wallets, you don’t generally have to buy the software for your Bitcoin wallet but just need to download it. 
    
Armery is an open source bitcoin wallet, and everyone has the freedom to develop apps and extensions for it. It is a free open source wallet released under GNU AGPLv3, which can generate and hold private bitcoin keys on your computer. 

If you are a business user or programmer, you can take it on by developing your code and adding your security features. As mentioned, a copy is an “open source” wallet; anyone can access it from their computer and develop apps or extensions to the ArmerY wallet. 
    
Bitcoin Core Wallet is not included in the Ubuntu software repository but can be easily installed by the Bitcoin Team PPA. Armory Bitcoin client is an Ubuntu repository that you can download from Armory’s website or the Ubuntu Software Centre. It is one of the most secure bitcoin wallets, and it is available for Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, Linux Mint and Windows Phone. 
    
If you are using a Bitcoin wallet client with Bitcoin Core, you will also need to download it. The first time you start, you will be prompted to set up the Bitcoin data directory to store your Bitcoin blockchain and wallet. 
    
Your address is also stored on the blockchain, where your special assets are located, and you keep the encryption key used to digitally sign transactions. Your Bitcoin wallet is a collection of private keys and can also refer to the client software you use to manage these keys or make transactions over the Bitcoin network. 
    
Bitcoin hardware wallets are the most secure because they do not release private keys to the network. Hot storage bags can further separate client-side wallets that are managed locally on the user’s computer or mobile device. These are online wallets supplied to users by major cryptocurrency exchanges. Bitcoin Web Wallet is the easiest and most convenient to use, but potentially less secure than the options above, as the private key to your Bitcoins is usually held by a third party. 

A cooler bag is inherently safer than a hot wallet, as it is not connected to the Internet. I – Wallet (which has no connection to the Internet) is used for large amounts of Bitcoin (ALWAYS), but not for small amounts.

Client Bitcoin Wallet

    
Much has changed in the last decade, and the history of Bitcoin wallets shows that it has become easier than ever to store and transfer cryptocurrencies securely. The number of Bitcoin wallets is growing rapidly and choosing a secure and reliable wallet for your Bitcoin wallet is difficult. 

Several dozen Bitcoin wallets to choose from, and they all differ in ease of use, security, and advanced features, making it important to carefully check your Bitcoin wallet. Whether you’re new to Bitcoin or how it works, here are some of the technologies that power cryptocurrency bags to help you better understand how they work.  
    
Desktop wallets (also called software wallets) are crypto wallets that download and store the entire Bitcoin blockchain to your computer. A desktop wallet is a crypto wallet that downloads, stores, transfers and stores bitcoin, ethereum, or any other digital currency to and from a computer, such as a bitcoin wallet. 
    
Your private key is stored in a secure place on your computer to protect it from external threats such as your phone, computer, or home computer. 
    
If you want a high level of security for your Bitcoins, a hardware wallet is a right way to Trezor undoubtedly. Still, if you store your private key in a Bitcoin wallet on a particular piece of hardware that is cold (i.e. not connected to the Internet), there is no guarantee that no one will be able to steal your cryptocurrency. 

You must have the private keys to move your Bitcoins from your Bitcoin address to your wallet. Your wallet stores your physical currency and you use your secure private key to access Bitcoin addresses and conduct transactions. A secure hard drive backs it up with a strong encryption key and a hard drive. 
    
Armory is an open source Bitcoin wallet and its Bitcoin client is part of the Ubuntu repository, which you can download from Armory’s website or the Ubuntu Software Centre. If you are a business user or programmer and do not need a complex multifunctional solution for your business, there is also the option to develop your Bitcoin wallet app. 

As mentioned earlier, Copay is another open source wallet, and everyone can develop apps and extensions for the Armery wallet. It is one of our most secure Bitcoin wallets, so if you are an enterprise user, programmer or even just an Ubuntu user, you should either develop your code or add our security features. 
    
Most importantly, the article “Saving Bitcoins” in the Bitcoin Wiki contains more information about the type of wallet and how to secure your Bitcoins. Once you understand how to create a Bitcoin wallet using libraries and integrating it into our platform, you can build your Bitcoin client to perform standard crypto payments. 

You will also understand how to protect your Bitcoin wallet app and gain access to the latest security features such as encryption and authentication. You will also learn more about how we make bitcoin wallets and apps and how they work. 
    
This article describes how to import the private key encrypted by BIP38 into the Bitcoin core wallet. You can also import private keys from an encrypted Bitcoin wallet into a Bitcoin client using the “Bitcoin Core” library. 
    
If the private key is only imported, the funds remain tied to the original Bitcoin address. Bitcoins in the paper wallet are linked to their original address, not to the core Bitcoin wallet. The private keys can also be imported directly into the core Bitcoin client via the Bitcoin Core library.
    
Once you’re done, you’ll have your Bitcoin wallet address that you can use to send, receive and store your Bitcoins. You can manage your Bitcoin wallet account by installing the Bitcoin Core Client on your Ubuntu system. This wallet requires verification, so you should enter your private information before sending or receiving Bitcoins. 

To help you store the bitcoins you have bought, Coinbase runs a popular web-based Bitcoin wallet, which is often recommended as an easy way to store, trade, buy and sell bitcoins. Xapo also offers a currency exchange that makes it easy for its users to buy, sell and trade bitcoins.
    
A paper wallet is essentially a document that contains the address of the Bitcoin received and the private key that allows you to issue or transfer Bitcoin stored at that address. Paper wallets can be created using BitAddress or Bitcoinpaperwallet, which allows users to create paper wallets with their private keys and addresses. This process allows Bitcoin core clients to access and control the paper-related funds – Bitcoin address for wallets and vice versa. 
    
One popular Bitcoin wallet is Airbitz, which combines its wallet client capabilities with a local wallet that stores your Bitcoins on your hard drive, allowing you to interact with the network intuitively and securely. You can create as many wallets as you want, store the right data and store all the bitcoins you have. 

A cloud-based wallet allows you and others to worry about the security of your digital assets. Hardware wallets can be taken anywhere, you create other wallets and store all Bitcoins in them. Wallet recovery can also be done via Bitcoin wallets or clients, which offer the possibility to import a wallet by entering a phrase set of seeds.
