Bitcoin Maximalist, Tone Vays, wore an Ethereum t-shirt while shilling BCash, Ethereum, AuroraCoin, PayCoin and his upcoming ICO, ToneCoin.
Adam Meister, took a break from The 1 Bitcoin Show and introduced The 1 Iota Show.
Ivan on Tech, reviewed some of his favorite April Fools' Day articles in the Crypto space, including one where Vitalik leaves Ethereum to join Bitcoin Core.
Did you get fooled by any Bitcoin April Fools' Day jokes? Come on, be honest now.
Forget his talk of a possible $1,300 BTC, Tone Vays has just been spotted with his Bitcoin Morning Brief friends, Jimmy Song and Leah Wald, taking Bitcoin to the Moon.
Thanks to Third Mind on Twitter for posting this very cool and humorous ET parody image and tagline. I'm sure it put a smile on the face of some Bitcoiners who have been feeling down due to the current price.
Hang in there people. There are bound to be more ups and downs along the journey, however, as the 'Tone crate' in the picture says, 'Destination: Moon'.
Just one question @TheThird_Mind ... where is Giacomo? :)
The Bitcoin price has been hit hard over the past 24 hours, falling below $7,000. Back in early February this year, Bitcoin also fell to this level, only to rise above $11,000 within two weeks. This time, however, the question is, will the same level of support bounce the price again or is there more downside to come? Popular Bitcoin trading expert, Tone Vays, today called a 20% chance of BTC falling all the way to $1,300. He has been speaking of this level for a long time, as a previous high that was never retested.
With significant drops in price, and fear, uncertainty and doubt in the market, strong hands are needed to avoid panic selling. During these times, I believe it's important to remember how Bitcoin has faired in downturns and crashes in the past. If history repeats itself, then those who can afford to hold are all good. Here's a recap ...
In 2011, the price peaked at $32 before crashing and entering an extended bear market that took it all the way down to $2. That's a correction of more than 90%. Next, in 2013, the Bitcoin price climbed from $13 to $1,100 before crashing and once again entering an extended bear market. This saw the price retrace to a low just above $200 — ouch!
Those who held their Bitcoin throughout these seemingly catastrophic crashes were richly rewarded. Panic selling, on the other hand, led many to regret their decisions.
Whatever happens in the next year or two, I think there will be a bull run leading up to the 2020 halving, followed by a post halving dip and then through the roof in 2021 — to the moon, even. This is based on what happened leading up to the 2016 halving and then into 2017. It's supply and demand. Of course, for whatever reason, it may play out differently. This is simply my best estimation.
A year ago the price was $1,000, in December it went to almost $20,000 and now it's $6,900. It's been one crazy ride that may well continue. A bull run to $100,000 followed by a crash to $20,000 certainly wouldn't surprise me at all. In the end, hold, hodl, don't sell unless you have to.
"Strong hand, long term thinking, delayed gratification, 2020 halving, gold and hold, be a twenty percenter, unconfiscatable, Bitcoin is the next Bitcoin, Pound that like button!"

Bitcoin.com Wallet to No Longer Create Bitcoin (BTC) Wallet by Default, Only Bitcoin Cash (BCH) - Roger Ver
In his presentation today at Satoshi's Vision Conference in Tokyo, Japan, Roger Ver said, "I have an announcement I guess I'll make here that I've told just a few people in private, but in the next update to the Bitcoin.com wallet coming very, very soon, we will be dropping Bitcoin Core wallet creation by default and it will only be making Bitcoin Cash wallets by default."
In my opinion, this will most likely result in people who are new to Bitcoin, or inexperienced with it, mistakenly purchasing Bitcoin Cash (BCH) when they think that they are buying Bitcoin (BTC). This may even be the goal, as Ver made his personal beliefs about Bitcoin crystal clear in his speech today when he said, "Bitcoin Cash is Bitcoin."
Don't be fooled. Bitcoin Cash is not Bitcoin. It is an altcoin, created by forking the original Bitcoin blockchain. Bitcoin is BTC, not BCH, Bitcoin Cash, or dare I say, 'BCash'.
During the Bitcoin bull run of 2017, many domain name investors started putting money into the cryptocurrency market. At the same time, Bitcoin and crypto related companies and startups sought to acquire quality domain names from which to promote their coin, idea, product or service.
Thus, when it came to this year's NamesCon, the domain industry's leading conference, held in Las Vegas, Bitcoin and cryptocurrency were high interest topics. The following video, filmed at the 2018 event, features a discussion between host, Richard Lau and experienced domain brokers, Jen Sale of Evergreen and Andrew Rosener of Media Options. Domains discussed include btc.com, ether.com and coinx.com
Bitcoin to the Moon is a blog dedicated to following the original cryptocurrency on a journey to its ultimate destination.
