U.S. retail giant Walmart has won a patent for the development of an electrical grid that will be powered by Bitcoin (BTC) or other digital currency, according to a patent application published June 14 by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

Bitcoin Fees are at their Lowest in Years

Fees on the bitcoin network have reached their lowest in seven years, with the median cost of sending BTC currently standing at $0.11. While there are several reasons why BTC fees are low, one of them is obvious: less people are using the network. The number of daily transactions has dropped sharply since last year, and has declined further in the past month. It is no secret that the number of on-chain bitcoin transactions, along with those of other blockchains, has dropped significantly since late 2017. This mirrors the decline in the valuation of bitcoin and most other digital assets during this timeframe. On December 14, almost half a million BTC transactions were recorded in a single day. By February, this figure was averaging below 200,000 a day. On April 24, the number peaked at 254,000, but has since declined, reaching a low of 158,000 on May 26, according to Bitinfocharts.com. In early April, the median BTC transaction fee dropped to under 10 satoshis per byte bef…

Well, Tim Draper is an investor with renowned opinions about the cryptomarket. He is an avid believer in the positivities of crypto and his bullish position has earned him many followers and detractors. On multiple occasions, his predicted forecasts have proved successful despite adverse scenarios, and this is something to take into consideration. A few years ago, Draper predicted that Bitcoin would increase by more than 10k, a figure that only a few believed possible at the time. His prediction was met in about one year. A month ago, Mr. Draper also predicted that Bitcoin would cost 250k by 2022. Quite a controversial and yet not impossible figure compared to Bitcoin’s previous performance over time. This Thursday, in an interview for CNBC, Tim Draper spoke about the advantages of using cryptocurrencies over the traditional FIAT system. For …

Can I accept bitcoin? Should I accept bitcoin?

Virtual currencies have recently been in the news as a result of the US Securities and Exchange Commission’s ruling that offers and sales of digital currencies are subject to federal securities requirements (there has not yet been any equivalent ruling in the UK). Nevertheless, digital currencies have continued to grow in popularity; Bitcoin, the most widely used, has quadrupled in value since the beginning of the year, as a result of the activity of speculators. The use of bitcoin for transactions has also increased: there are now over 16 million bitcoins in circulation, with between 200,000 and 300,000 bitcoin transactions recorded every day.
