Bitcoin holders have done it tough throughout this brutal bear market, seeing the price plunge from 20k all the way to the current sub 4k level. The sustained period of lower prices has taken its toll, and tested even the most hardcore hodlers to the limit. At such times, any development that can provide a boost to those who have weathered the storm is welcome.
Thankfully, some good news is on its way for those flying the BTC flag, in the form of a free airdrop called MimbleWimbleCoin (MWC). Mimble what? Those familiar with Harry Potter will know that Mimblewimble is a curse that ties the tongue of the target to prevent them speaking about a particular topic. Thus, in crypto, the term 'MimbleWimble' was assigned to a protocol released in mid-2016, that provides a strong cryptographic framework, suitable for privacy focused blockchains.
To date, the most notable projects to utilize the MimbleWimble protocol are Grin and Beam. While they both have positive aspects to them, the downsides are considerable. Grin has no cap on its supply and Beam has adopted a company style governance structure. Enter MimbleWimbleCoin, which will fork the Grin code base, have a capped supply of twenty million, and be distributed exclusively to Bitcoin holders who sign up to receive the airdrop.
The combination of privacy features from the MimbleWimble protocol, store of value capabilities from a low cap supply and a straightforward distribution method to the strongest hodlers in crypto, could well see MimbleWimbleCoin become one of the rising stars during the next bull run.
Registration for the MWC airdrop opens on April 20, 2019, with the snapshot of the Bitcoin blockchain, to determine distribution, occurring on July 19, 2019. In addition to the airdropped coins, 50% of the supply will be Proof of Work minable and there will also be a rewards program for holding.

Bitcoin Rhodium (BTR). Have you heard of it? Possibly not, and it's no wonder. We've already had Bitcoin Cash, Gold, Diamond, Private, Atom, Top, Hot and even Pizza for crying out loud! The number of forks and sporks has truly reached the absurd stage, so why on earth would anyone care about, let alone remember Bitcoin Rhodium?
While at first glance this seems to be a fair enough reaction, a closer inspection of Bitcoin Rhodium reveals that it has some special properties that set it apart from the list of Bitcoin 'Whatevers' mentioned above. To start with, it not a fork of the Bitcoin blockchain, nor is it a spork of Bitcoin and another altcoin. Instead, Bitcoin Rhodium is an airdrop, awarded only to those who signed up to claim it, and not to all Bitcoin holders. In addition to that, the developers have built a brand new blockchain. This gives BTR a uniqueness advantage over the forks.
Next, and this is the killer app in my opinion, the supply of Bitcoin Rhodium is capped at two point one million (2,100,000). This is opposed to the circa twenty one million coins made available by the vast majority of Bitcoin forks, and the whopping two hundred and ten million units of Bitcoin Diamond. This gives BTR a scarcity advantage over the forks.
Furthermore, the team members, including the developers behind Bitcoin Rhodium, have chosen to remain anonymous. In all communication on their Discord channel and social media sites, they have opted to use pseudonyms. Doing so removes the single point of weakness factor, created when there is a central, known figure behind a cryptocurrency. This gives BTR a security advantage over the forks.
Add to this, enhanced privacy via two anonymization levels and a partnership with the rhodium precious metal market, and you've got a powerful new crypto asset.
Bitcoin Rhodium is set to launch shortly after the final claim period, which ends on September 29, 2018. Finally, the secret will be out and Bitcoin Rhodium will take the crypto world by storm!
You can find out more information at the official BTR website, BitcoinRh.org and follow them on Twitter @BitCoinRh.

To say that popular Bitcoin and cryptocurrency commentator, Andy Hoffman, is a Bitcoin Rhodium (BTR) bull, is a serious understatement. Since first learning of the project while in its mere infancy, via Adam Meister's YouTube channel, Andy has been the most prominent promoter of BTR.
He has explained the uniqueness, benefits and potential of Bitcoin Rhodium, or BRhodium as he likes to call it, to anyone who will listen. In doing so, Andy has come under fire, particularly of late, from some Bitcoin maximalists who are not happy that he is speaking positively about something other than Bitcoin (BTC). This came to a head recently when World Crypto Network (WCN) founder, Thomas Hunt, interviewed Andy about BTR. Thomas did so due to criticism directed at him about a perceived conflict between Andy's role as a WCN presenter and a promoter of BTR.
So why is Andy Hoffman bullish about Bitcoin Rhodium? Well, fortunately for us, he has been prolific in his writing about the project from early January 2018 to the present day. Below is a list of 50+ Bitcoin Rhodium related articles, produced by Andy over that time. They read like a diary of his views on BTR, and demonstrate a consistent and unwavering belief that this new digital asset will be a force to be reckoned with in the short term, and an elite store of value coin in the future.
With this plethora of information at your fingertips, there's no need to take my word or anyone else's, regarding what Andy believes about Bitcoin Rhodium and why. Now you can hear it from the man himself, in as much or as little detail as you like. More importantly, you can decide for yourself whether Bitcoin Rhodium is something that fits with your cryptocurrency investment strategy.
Oh, and for those who would like to see the discussion of Bitcoin Rhodium between Andy Hoffman and Thomas Hunt, you can do so below the article list.
Update 10/23/18: Andy has launched his own YouTube channel, which can be found here. The first video uploaded to it is a special Bitcoin Rhodium launch interview with anonymous BTR developer and spokesperson, 'Thomas'. It can also be viewed below the following article list.
Update 11/08/18: Andy's interview of cryptocurrency expert, TopRoller, from the Bitcoin Rhodium Discord community, can now be watched below.

If you're curious about the nuts and bolts of the BitCoin Rhodium (BTR) project, then prepare to have your curiosity satisfied. The friendly team of anonymous BTR developers have provided a high level of access to information (both technical and general) about what is going on behind the scenes and even under the hood.
All of the following links are available for anyone to explore. So feel free to look around and share what you find with friends, followers, family or anyone who may be interested in a new, ultra scarce, extra private, store of value crypto asset.
Oh, and if you want a quick summary of the BitCoin Rhodium project, have a read of this popular article: BitCoin Rhodium Launch Draws Near
BitCoin Rhodium (BTR) is nearing launch, and on the most recent episode of This Week in Bitcoin, Andy Hoffman of CryptoGoldCentral.com updates viewers on what's been happening with this exciting new crypto asset.
Andy eloquently explains the uniqueness of the BitCoin Rhodium project, from its beginnings as an opt in airdrop, to the recent testnet launch, and its potential to be a big winner in the altcoin space.
So whether you're a BitCoin Rhodium holder or this is the first time you've heard of it, sit back and enjoy this highly informative, four minute clip, on what could well be a game-changing cryptocurrency.
BitCoin Rhodium (BTR) … don’t let the name fool you. It isn’t another fork of Bitcoin (BTC) like Bitcoin … Cash, Gold, Diamond, Super, Atom or the myriad of other Bitcoin clones out there. BitCoin Rhodium did not fork off the Bitcoin blockchain, but rather, has its own brand new blockchain that was built from scratch by an anonymous team of developers.
While the majority of the numerous Bitcoin fork coins have a capped supply of 21 million or more (Bitcoin Diamond, for example, has a 210 million cap), there will only ever be 2.1 million BitCoin Rhodium. Yes, that decimal point is not a typo, it’s two point one million. Obviously this means that Bitcoin holders couldn’t be rewarded 1 coin for every BTC they hold, as was the case with most of the forked cryptocurrencies. Instead, BitCoin Rhodium was distributed via airdrop to Bitcoin holders who registered wallets for it, at a ratio of 10 BTR for every 1 BTC. There was also an opportunity for non BTC holders to register an empty Bitcoin wallet and receive 5 BTR. In both of these cases there were caps in place.
During the past week, a group of ten miners on the BitCoin Rhodium Discord channel were given access to mine on the testnet and make transfers between test wallets. This has now been opened up to others via Discord who want to be involved.
With this hive of testnet activity, and the regular resolution of platform issues shown on BTR's GitLab, one thing is clear ... BitCoin Rhodium's launch is drawing near. So if you're a cryptocurrency miner seeking extremely rare treasure, or an investor looking for a scarce and precious commodity in which to store value, BitCoin Rhodium, a new crypto asset, awaits you.
