Recently, I wrote an article about the forthcoming FreeMarket.one trading platform, titled, Anonymous Crypto to Precious Metals Trading is Set to Become a Reality. The platform aims to be a marketplace that bridges the gap between virtual cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, and physical assets, such as gold and silver.
To provide anonymity, FreeMarket.one utilizes the Tor network, and to ensure security, it integrates blockchain technology. The project is part of the Bitcoin Rhodium (XRC) ecosystem of development.
While there is much 'engine room' building behind the scenes, the image above shows the latest progress in what the user will see when interacting with the platform. Given the current rate of progress, it is anticipated that public beta should be released at the beginning of the fourth quarter, 2020.
The price of gold and silver has surged recently, as investors seek to protect their wealth during this time of global economic uncertainty. This has been mirrored in the cryptocurrency markets, where Bitcoin, Ethereum and a plethora of altcoins and DeFi tokens have achieved significant gains.
These market movements have put a spotlight on cryptocurrencies and precious metals, drawing renewed interest from those who normally invest in more traditional assets, such as, stocks and real estate.
Given this, the timing of a soon to be released crypto to precious metals trading platform, could not have been better. Enter, FreeMarket.one, which aims to bridge the gap between these virtual and physical assets, using the Tor network to provide anonymity and blockchain technology to ensure security. The project is part of the Bitcoin Rhodium (XRC) ecosystem of development.
FreeMarket.one beta testing is set to take place this quarter. Currently, you can download a technical test version of the software. Details of this can be found here.

Since my recent article, MimbleWimble Coin Delivering High Returns for Bitcoin Holders, the price of MWC has continued to soar, and is making a push towards 0.001 BTC per coin. To coincide with this stunning performance, a range of cool MWC merchandise was launched today.
The merch includes a huge variety of clothing items, available in many colors, styles and sizes. Other product lines are stickers, phone and tablet cases &skins, mugs, tote bags, clocks, pillows, prints, posters, coasters and notebooks... plus even more.
So step up your crypto swagger and click here to check out the MWC Merch Store.

MimbleWimble Coin (MWC), a recent airdropped cryptocurrency that was acquired for free by Bitcoin holders who signed up for it, is delivering an exceptionally high rate of return. MWC were awarded at a rate of 40.41 per BTC registered. At the time of writing, MWC is trading above 0.0006 BTC.
MWC is a fork of the high profile privacy coin, Grin. Like Grin, and its equally well known counterpart, Beam, MWC utilizes the groundbreaking anonymity features of MimbleWimble technology, however, it also combines this with the power of scarcity, by having a capped supply of just 20 million. This limit on the number of coins, could well be the reason that investors are moving in and pushing up the price.
At the moment, MWC is trading on the Hotbit exchange (which doesn't require KYC) and via OTC on the MWC Discord channel.

A hardware wallet is an essential device for keeping your Bitcoin secure and giving you complete control over it. If instead, you have your Bitcoin at an exchange, it is certainly not safe and you don't control it, they do.
Exchanges can be hacked, shut down and are susceptible to internal corruption. Just ask anyone who held their Bitcoin at the Mount Gox exchange when it collapsed ... bye, bye Bitcoin.
Having your Bitcoin at an exchange gives them control of your private keys, which means they decide which, if any, hard forks of the blockchain (such as Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Gold) they will support. As a Bitcoin holder at the time of a Bitcoin blockchain hard fork, you are entitled to an equivalent quantity of any cryptocurrency that is formed by it, however, that is only if you control your private keys. When Bitcoin is at an exchange, the decision to support a particular hard fork and reward holders is up to them and so you may miss out.
Some of these hard fork created cryptocurrencies have become significantly valuable in their own right. Those who held their Bitcoin private keys on a hardware wallet at the time of these forks were rewarded with a matching number of the new coins for free. These could then be held as an alternate investment, sold for cash or used to obtain more Bitcoin.
Controlling your own private keys, via a hardware wallet, also gives you the ability to claim free airdropped cryptocurrencies that are awarded to Bitcoin holders, like Bitcoin Rhodium, MWC and Hex. Once again, if your Bitcoin is on an exchange, you forego such opportunities.
If your hardware wallet is damaged, lost or stolen, your Bitcoin is still safe, as the thief or finder wouldn't know the information required to access the wallet. You, however, can restore your entire Bitcoin balance on another hardware or software wallet, because you will have the information to be able to do so.
When purchasing a hardware wallet, it is important to do so from the manufacturer or a reputable distributor, such as, CryptoHWWallet or Coinstop. This way you can be assured of receiving a genuine, brand new, untampered with, product. Never buy one on ebay.
Don't leave it any longer. The risk is real. Secure and control your valuable Bitcoin with a hardware wallet today.
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 (XRC). 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's 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 XRC 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 XRC 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 XRC 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 XRC website, BitcoinRh.org and follow them on Twitter @BitCoinRh.
