Introducing nChain

Today we are introducing the nChain Group which joined our association as a corporate member last October when Dr. Craig S. Wright, the Chief Scientist at nChain was invited for a Meetup in Zürich.

The nChain group aims to be global leader in research, development, technology applications and investments to enable infinite innovation in blockchain technologies – especially focused on worldwide adoption and growth of Bitcoin Cash. The Group now includes four business units: nChain Limited – a blockchain research and development business; nChain Holdings Limited – an intellectual property holding and commercialization company; nChain Reaction – a new investment entity; nCrypt – a Bitcoin wallet and exchange in Canada.

We would like to thank nChain for supporting the values of the Bitcoin Association Switzerland through corporate membership and wish them all the best for their endeavors.

Introducing Technical Analysis

Introducing Technical Analysis

While active traders have struggled to beat the performance of someone just hodling her Bitcoins, the sharp rise in the last quarter 2017 had even old veterans question whether a more active portfolio management style wasn't perhaps appropriate. 

When managing a portfolio of coins (or any other portfolio for that matter) more actively, the old saying "timing is everything" most certainly applies. We therefore thought it would be of interest for the entire  community to get a professional to do the technical analysis for all of us.

Bitcoin Gold - Do we need it and if yes, how many?

Bitcoin Gold - Do we need it and if yes, how many?

BCash/Bitcoin (BCH)1 cash did it on August 1st 2017, Bitcoin2x/Segwit2x(B2X) does it at block 494,784, which is currently estimated to occur on November 16th. For better or worse, creating a new cryptocurrency by forking off of Bitcoin seems to be this seasons fashion, and seeing the relative success of the previous and current attempts (lingering at prices of several percent of that of Bitcoin, which gives it a market cap in the billions of dollar), it is also a trend which is quite likely going to carry over into the next year. And since this topic comes up again and again at the meetups and the chat groups organized by the BAS, it is certainly worthwhile to capture some of the most relevant and interesting points in written words. I'll say some general things about forks of Bitcoin and how to benefit from them, but -since this has been splendidly covered elsewhere- spend most of the text with the specific changes of the Bitcoin Gold fork.
