Is It Time To Buy 1UP Tokens And Level Up Your Uptrennd Account? Why I Think The Time Is Now!

Uptrennd the Time Is Now to Get Involved!
My wife Anabell Hilarski and I are pretty well known to be early adopters and users of Steemit. We saw what the possibilities were early on and we put all of our social media focus into Steemit for almost two years. We were even part of the team from September 2016 until June of 2017. It was a great crypto learning experience and we made a considerable amount of Bitcoin during this period.
Fast forward to mid 2018 when the founder of Uptrennd Jeff Kirdeikis first let me know about his new project. I was so involved with other projects that I had little time to look into it but I was proud that one of my crypto friends was taking on such a large task. 
Then in the beginning of 2019, I jumped headfirst into Uptrennd. I began reposting all of my CryptoDaily articles to the platform. I engaged some and was able to make it to level 13. I think I did buy about $100 worth of 1UP tokens before they were listed on any exchanges, via the platform. I always believe that if I am going to use something I should support it financially.
Is It Time to Level Up Your Uptrennd Account?

Buying Uptrennd 1 Up Tokens and Leveling Up to Level 22.

Last week the team announced the ability to take 1UP tokens from our MyEtherWallet and deposit them on the Uptrennd platform. I bought 43,000 1UP tokens on IDEX and followed the steps to load them to my account. I then proceeded to level up from 13 all the way to 22. 1UP tokens are an ERC20 token. 
My decision to buy 1UP tokens was twofold. Increase my ROI per vote and to support the team. I really believe they are building something great.
An example of ROI.
If each 1UP token is $.01 then 1 vote is $.01. Since I leveled up to level 22 each vote that other Uptrennd members give me is now worth 3.1X more. So an upvote on my content would then be worth $.033. So if I was to receive 100 upvotes I would technically be able to get a return of $3.30 on my content vs. $1 if my account was still at level zero. Currently, the price of 1UP is $.007 on October 8, 2019.
Below is the multiplier of each vote for each level up to 22. There are many more levels that are increasingly more difficult to achieve.

If Uptrennd Continues to Grow I Suspect We Will See Fireworks Regarding the Price of the Token.
Any true content creator will see the value of leveling up their Uptrennd account. I personally am happy with a 3.1X per vote on my content. When I made the call to buy Steem at $.07 and it went to almost $4 I felt like a genius. 1UP could repeat the action in the next crypto bull run.

Unpopular Opinion, "Altseason Will Return"

We Keep Hearing That Bitcoin is Taking Over and the Altcoins are Doomed.
Well, I am going to be the bearer of an unpopular opinion, “Altseason will Return”. The Bitcoin Maximalists do no like this opinion. As a self-proclaimed blockchain agnostic, I believe that the crypto space will continue to evolve and bring us new tech and new altcoins. 
What I Think Some of the Reasons Bitcoin has Acted The Way it Has.

The Bitcoin Bear Market is Over.
Fearmongering of the Bitcoin Maximalist Crowd.
Binance Closing Its Platform to US Traders

I Made a List of Altcoins That I Like But You Will Have to Watch the Video to Find Out Why.

DYOR or Do Your Own Research. I don’t trust opinions from other cryptocurrency writers, social media users and especially crypto Twitter. Spend time learning about the crypto projects you love. Don’t listen to others opinions only and don’t listen to me.
Some of the Upcoming Altcoins will Blow Our Minds. 
As I mentioned in the video I am super excited for the Mainnet release of Epic Cash. This project is, in my opinion, the most promising project to launch in 2019. It is a Proof of Work, MimbleWimble privacy coin. You can join the Epic Cash Telegram here.

The Drama Of Bitcoin Vs Gold Has Been An Enduring Subject Since Liberty Lovers First Discovered Bitcoin

Last week Bitcoin pioneer Barry Silbert decided it was appropriate to rip the Bitcoin vs Gold Scab off one more time. It was just as entertaining as one can imagine. See the Tweet by Barry Silbert below.

The Tweet Storm That Followed was One for the Books!
The responses to Barry’s Tweets were epic but I want to point out a few that I think did the best job. My friend and former client Peter Spina of GoldSeek went straight for the jugular. You can follow the whole line of responses here. Peter Schiff also showed up for the drama! 
I know very well where Peter Spina stands on Crypto. He is a huge fan and he also owns many of the same projects that I do. Attacking gold makes no sense in my opinion. Peter Spina is a pretty tolerant guy but when you say something that does not make sense he is going to let you know.

Peter Schiff is a Perpetual Bear Who Shows Up Anytime Bitcoin Surges.
I have been trolling Peter Schiff on his Facebook page for years. Sure I owe him part of my financial awakening. I read his book, “Crash Proof: How to Profit From the Coming Economic Collapse” back in 2007 and my family did very well in the Silver bull run from 2008-2011. 
On the other hand, I have grown weary of his incessant attacks on Bitcoin. The guy is like a record player that is stuck repeating the same song over and over and over again. I believe his energy is misplaced. 

“Bitcoin and Friends”, Has Challenged Peter Schiff to a Debate.
Yes, a cartoon Bitcoin has challenged Peter Schiff to a debate. This is how things get done in the new world. We are in a world of memes and it is time Peter Schiff shows up to this century.

Why Can’t We All Just Get Along?
As for me and my house, we will own both Bitcoin and Gold. Even though every now knows me as a crypto enthusiast my journey down the road of liberty began with gold and particularly silver. At an early age, my Father taught me the value of precious metals. When my friends were receiving toys for Christmas I also received silver coins. 
Real money is something I value highly. Bitcoin and Gold, in my opinion, are almost equal. I just lean more to Bitcoin today. There is just something about it being convenient and easily divisible that make it amazing.
I wish we could put the subject to rest but I understand it will rear its ugly head daily for years to come. Be smart, why not own a little of both?

Just 21 Days Until An EPIC Dawn In Crypto Privacy

On July 4th, EPIC Cash Proof of Work Mining Will Begin.
If you believe in your money being private and understand the power of POW then you should take a look at EPIC Cash. Using MimbleWimble the Epic Cash blockchain would be 10% the size of Bitcoins if we were to run all transactions on EPIC Cash from the beginning of Bitcoins blockchain.
What is EPIC Cash? EPIC Private Internet Cash.
Epic Cash is the final point in the journey toward true P2P internet cash, the cornerstone of a private financial system. The currency aims to become the world’s most effective anonymous form of digital money. In order to fulfill that goal, it fulfills the three principal functions of money:
Medium of Exchange – anything accepted as representing a standard of value and exchangeable for goods or services;
Store of Value – can be saved, retrieved, and exchanged at a later time, and of predictable value when retrieved;
Unit of Account – the unit by which the value of a thing is accounted for and compared.
See the EPIC Cash Whitepaper Here.
EPIC Cash Monetary Policy.
The monetary policy of Epic Cash and Bitcoin are very similar. Epic Cash circulating supply first expands rapidly and then synchronizes with the circulating supply of Bitcoin in 2028. It increases thereafter at a declining rate until reaching a maximum supply of 21 million Epic by 2140.

Why EPIC Cash? It’s About Privacy in My Opinion.
There is an opportunity for the crypto community to still have a major aspect of their money preserved. It is privacy! Over the last few weeks, we have seen the discussions about Globalcoin the stable coin soon to be launched by our favorite privacy advocates Facebook.

The excitement behind such a project is disturbing to those of us who want privacy when it comes to our finances. The fact that Bitcoin is much less private than we thought has also rattled a few nerves.
EPIC Cash has successfully designed a coin that has eliminated wallet addresses and it also ensures IP addresses can’t be traced.
It does this through the integration of the Dandelion++ Protocol. Improving upon its predecessor, the original Dandelion Protocol, the Dandelion++ Protocol is a result of 7 researchers’ continued work to combat deanonymization attacks on the blockchain. Through Dandelion++, transactions are passed over random intertwined paths, or ‘cables’, and then suddenly diffused to a large network of nodes, like the pods of a Dandelion flower when blown from their stem. This makes it nearly impossible to trace transactions back to their origin, and thus their originating IP addresses. See Below

EPIC Cash makes the transactions private by obscuring the amounts and who is the sender or receiver of the transaction. Using Conjoin EPIC Cash will also bundle transactions.
Mining EPIC Cash.
Now I know this is what everyone was waiting for. How do we mine EPIC Cash?
Epic Cash pursues decentralization by welcoming a wide variety of computation hardware. Epic mining is initially available to CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, and ASICs, using four respective hashing algorithms: RandomX, ProgPow, SHA3 Keccak, and CuckAToo31+. Additional algorithms can be trivially hot-swapped without compromising the integrity of the chain.
Check out the EPIC Cash Whitepaper for more information.

Is "Buy The Rumor, Sell The News" The Easiest Trade In Crypto?

Plan and Execute Your Trades to Avoid FOMO.
Over the last month, I watched as my favorite trade, “Buy the Rumor, Sell the News”, played out like a perfectly performed ballad. I know many of you are bad ta traders like myself. I don’t have time or the patience to pour over charts. I also only trade occasionally.
This type of trade is pretty easy to spot. Big announcement coming, coin specific conference or if you get massively lucky some insider knowledge that somehow leaked.
What to do, accumulate for a few days then enjoy the ride. The key to my trade is to get out before the announcement.
Why post this? I counted three big “Buy the Rumor, Sell the News” trades in the last few weeks. Ethereum rocked during Consensus, EOS over this week and now Tron after the announcement of the announcement by Justin Sun.
Why trade like this?
The risk is relatively low and I can go about my normal business. The key is that I spend a few hours per week researching the event calendar and I follow all of the main characters in Crypto on Twitter. I put together a Crypto Twitter list that you can follow.
If you are anything like me you probably do not enjoy doing TA (Technical Analysis). This method of trading gives me the opportunity to accumulate a position, relax as the volume builds and then I sell 1-2 days before the announcement.
Let’s use EOS as an Example.
This Tweet by Block.one happened on March 25. So I had just over 60 days to accumulate some EOS.

What Would Have Happened if I Bought 100 EOS 30 Days Prior to the Announcement?
On May 1st, 2019 EOS was priced at $4.75 USD or .00088 BTC. If I sold on May 31 the price of EOS was $8.40 USD or .00098 BTC. I used CoinMarketCap for reference. Not a bad trade for something that could have been set up 30-60 days prior thanks to the Tweet by Block.One.

This is One Way I Have Learned to Trade Without FOMO.
When I first got into Crypto I used to fall into the FOMO trap and take losses and then hold a bag. Experience has taught me to be much more calculated. When people post on social media that I should buy project coins or tokens after they have already gone up 50% in the last few days I now just shake my head.
There is a term in Crypto that never fails. It is called DYOR (Do Your Own Research). Relying on people from social media to help you decide how to trade on a daily basis is a recipe for getting #REKT. This is merely my opinion. Enjoy your day and happy trading.

Aeryus Listed On IDEX And We Explain Ethereum ERC-721 Tokens

Randy Hilarski Interviews Nicholus Andrews, CEO of Aeryus.
Aeryus is one of the hottest projects on the market. Last week IDEX listed AER to its DEX and Blockfolio also added Aeryus. I talked to Nicholus about how the project vision has changed since he began the project almost two years ago. We also discuss in detail Ethereum ERC-721 tokens or non-fungible tokens/NFT’s. We talk about why assets on the blockchain could be a huge market and how it could propel crypto in the next Bull cycle.
What is a Non-Fungible Token?
A non-fungible token (NFT) is a special type of cryptographic token which represents something unique; non-fungible tokens are thus not interchangeable. This is in contrast to cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, and many network or utility tokens that are fungible in nature.

Bitcoin And Friends – Episode 1 Review

Hold on Tight, Bitcoin has Its Own Show Now!
Bitcoin awakens to a chaotic world following the 2008 financial crisis. With only a few words to his young child, Satoshi disappears, leaving Bitcoin with more questions than answers. Fortunately, a benevolent ice cream truck owner (Jones) takes Bitcoin under his wing in a search to find his father.
Parental Guidance Strongly Suggested!

Bitcoin and Friends- Review by Randy Hilarski.
This episode of Bitcoin and Friends caught my attention and kept it for the full 23 minutes. From the beginning it was like watching an episode of my life. Since I first learned of Bitcoin back in 2011 I have watched much of the growth of the Bitcoin economy.

Bitcoin is left to fend for itself after Satoshi Nakamoto completes the creation of the code that became Bitcoin, reminding me of the tale of Frankenstein. It’s Alive!
Bitcoin was born shortly after the troubling Financial Crisis of 2008. Despair sets in as the rotten banks foreclose on thousands and they end up homeless and struggling to survive.I lived through this in Tampa and worked in a psych unit at this time. You can imagine what I saw.
Bitcoin is trying to find its father. We have been dealing with this since the birth of the cryptocurrency. I love the Dorian Satoshi Nakamoto part!
Bitcoin tries to find its identity. What am I and what am I here for? Trying to pay for food with the coins was priceless. People are still struggling to understand but we are making inroads.
Bitcoin finds Hal Finney and receives his blessing. This was my favorite part and then, well you will have to watch it to see what Bitcoin does. Bwahahaha.

Overall I really enjoyed Bitcoin and friends. I might sound like a stodgy old man but I did not like the violent and grotesque parts of the episode. As many of you know I abhor the use of violence and love to voice my opinion on the matter.
I believe we could have a much broader audience if it was safe for younger audiences. Since this shows target audience seems to be aimed  at over 30 males I will have to give it a solid thumbs up. The reason I say over 30 is because these are the people who remember the financial crisis of 2008. If a person payed just the slightest bit of attention to the world back then, they will be able to follow this episode.
Now the Bitcoin history lesson is solid. I like how Bitcoin is shown trying to finds its identity. This is precisely what happened and I look forward to seeing what Episode 2 of Bitcoin and Friends brings us. Hopefully more 10 minute blocks and before the next halving.

Has The Next Four Year Cycle In Bitcoin Started?

This Long Time Trader Believes So!
Bob Loukas put out a new video via his Youtube channel on April 2, 2018, showing his followers why he believes a new 4-year cycle for Bitcoin has begun. He had put out a video back on January 14th expressing his belief that we were nearing the end of the Bear market in Bitcoin. I highly recommend watching both videos to understand the 4-year cycle in Bitcoin. “Bitcoin’s 4 Year Cycle – Opportunity”.

The Crypto Market Bull May Be Back, Beware The Scammers!

When the Crypto Good Times Come Back, So Will the Scams.
Bitcoin and the whole crypto market added almost $20 Billion to the Market Cap within 24 hours. Like many of you, I have been waiting patiently for a reversal of the market. It seems the Bulls have finally made a move. Is the bear market over? I sure hope so but I will never disregard the bear.
One of the most common things I have heard during the bear market was this, “We don’t want to launch our project until the Bull market returns”. I have personally spoken to over 20 crypto projects over the last year and believe me a wave is coming that even I can’t fathom.
This does not mean that every project is a scam. Take care with your Bitcoin and do not hand it over unless you have done your due diligence.
Real Garbage is Out There.
There are some types of so-called investments that warrant even more attention. Do you remember the scene from, “The Wolf of Wall St”? I sure do and this is exactly how it goes down. In the movie, they talked about “pink sheets” crypto is similar to them. You probably don’t know the team behind many of the projects. You click on an ad, listen to a sponsored Youtube video then get drawn in by a well-constructed website.
The Pitch Scene from “The Wolf of Wall St”.

Don’t Be Fooled By These New Terms.

STO- Security Token Offering
IEO- Initial Exchange Offering

If We Thought the ICO Market Was Huge, The Next Phase Will Dwarf It.
“Initial coin offerings (ICOs) were all the rage in 2017, raising a massive US$5.6 billion, but this year saw the emergence of the security token offerings (STOs), a market that’s predicted to be worth some US$10 trillion by 2020.”
Guard Your Bitcoin.
It is time to educate yourself about the crypto market, security offernings and how to protect yourself from the bad players out there. The next crypto bubble will blow our minds. This time around, I vow to not get caught up in the excitement and stay focused on my goals. Just because your buddy says he found the next best STO, does not mean you need to buy some tokens.
It is not easy to build a Bitcoin stack so why give it away easily? Do your own research on each project that interests you but dig deep into each one. There is Bitcoin to be made but just like the ICO market, the STO market will also be full of stinkers.
Get Ready, Good Times, are Just Around the Corner for the Crypto Market.
I am thrilled that I am able to be part of this world-changing technology. Crypto and blockchain are going to change the world as we know it. As an entrepreneur this makes me smile from ear to ear. Just like the ICO market, the good projects will find their way to the top.
