BAT and LINK Token Holders Can Now Claim 8% Interest Payments - Allowing Investors to Profit By Simply Owning Them!

The Crypto App team announced the addition of BAT & LINK to "Crypto Earn" - allowing users to earn 8% interest on the tokens they already own!

Also still going for a limited time: Hold 50 MCO tokens (the official token of the platform) and get an instant $50 credit.

Then, since you own 50 of their tokens you'll immediately be able to claim your Crypto Visa Card and begin earning "crypto back" on every purchase you make.


They'll even pay your Netflix and Spotify bill every month!
Between this and cash back, they're giving users some serious incentive to use the card. So obviously, you'll need to bill Netflix and Spotify your Crypto Visa card, and they'll reimburse you.

To claim these bonuses before joining, register for them by submitting your e-mail address here first.

But the big news today is the addition of BAT and LINK to their interest earning program.
  • Basic Attention Token (BAT) aims to improve the efficiency of digital advertising. BAT is a utility token that can be exchanged between publishers, advertisers, and users on the Brave platform, which leverages blockchain to provide digital advertising and services. The token also powers the Brave web browser, a free and open-source web browser developed by Brave Software Inc.
  • Chainlink (LINK) provides a secure, decentralized “blockchain middleware”, while also providing a way to access the multiple inputs and outputs needed by a complex smart contract. By simplifying how smart contracts can securely access key off-chain resources, Chainlink aims to accelerate the development of increasingly useful smart contracts.
That brings the list of tokens they're paying interest on to 11 total, including BTC, ETH, LTC, XRP, BNB, TUSD, PAX, USDC, MCO with the addition of BAT and LINK.

Interest is paid out weekly, and you can choose to have your coins locked up for as little as 1 month at a time.

If you own any qualifying tokens and want to learn more, begin by claiming the bonuses here first.

YouHodler Six Month Review: More Coins, Better Features and New Ways to Profit...

The last six months were highly eventful for YouHodler and the crypto market on the whole. This roller coaster of emotions we all have experienced may distract us from the true progress that was actually made. For that reason, we here at YouHodler decided to compile a six-month review of everything our team, and our interactive community members have accomplished. So as the sun sets on yet another great summer, let’s look at the progress of the past and see how it can help shape our immediate future.

March: YouHodler goes "full cycle" with crypto conversions and credit card payments

Following the announcement of XLM listing in March, the YouHodler development team was hard at work to complete the platform’s long-awaited conversion tool. This allows users to convert any crypto on the platform (BTC, BCH, BSV, ETH, LTC, XLM, XRP) to USD or EUR. From there, YouHodler allows users to withdraw their fiat holdings directly into their credit/debit card quickly if they choose to do so.

We believe this adds a new utility for all coins on our platform since it allows users to effectively deposit their crypto directly to their traditional bank accounts (through the process of conversion). This new addition marks the beginning of our transformation from a simple crypto lending platform to a crypto/fiat FinTech platform that includes crypto wallets, crypto lending, blockchain integrations and more.

April: New coins, diverse options, and more utility

Due to popular demand from community members, YouHodler added DASH and EOS to their growing list of coins that includes, BTC, BCH, BSV, ETH, XRP, XLM, LTC, and more. YouHodler users can choose any of these options to use as collateral for a crypto backed line of credit. Furthermore, they can convert any of these crypto options to other cryptos on the platform in addition to stablecoins (USDT) and to fiat (USD or EUR).

Also joining the family is Augur (REP), the first token included on the platform. Just like all other cryptocurrencies on the platform, REP holders can now utilize the value of their REP assets in the real world without having to sell off their investments. In the near future, REP HODLers can also convert to any listed coin on YouHodler.

May: Crypto spring bull run and new creative ways to profit

All HODLers benefited from the May bull run but some of our more creative clients found new ways to maximize their earnings. We shared one unique way to use our high LTV (90%) in cooperation with our “crypto for fiat” feature to essentially buy crypto for 10% of its value.

After releasing this feature, we noticed a high number of clients using it to margin trade and leverage (e.g. customer buys XRP with USD on YouHodler, takes a loan using XRP as collateral, uses those fiat funds to buy more XRP, takes another loan, buy more XRP, etc).

This is a risky maneuver but one that can provide high profits if one times the market correctly. May was a great month for this strategy and many YouHodler users had high profits as a result.

June: Turbo loans, LTV increase revolutionize crypto loan

LTV increase and Turbo Loans were the most prominent releases for YouHodler in June. In May, we noticed a need for a feature that lets users increase the loan to value ratio (LTV) on an existing loan if they choose. With this method, HODLers can get more fiat for their opened loans without having to increase their collateral amount.

At any moment, the crypto market can experience a bull run. While many other lending platforms lock your assets, YouHodler now allows you to increase LTV on existing loans to get more cash to maximize profits on a bull run without having to close a loan.

Read full “Increase LTV” article here.

Following up on this release, YouHodler recently announced Turbo Loans. After noticing a pattern where our clients are using a “chain of loans” to leverage and multiply their assets, YouHoder customized a new tool that automates the entire process.  In one click, users can start with an amount (i.e. 1 BTC) as collateral, and theoretically “Turbocharcharge” this amount to more than three times its original value. (market conditions apply). It’s a simple, efficient way to use a series of loans that multiply your crypto holdings.

Click here to see how to get more crypto for less using Turbo Loans.

New landing page and calculator attract new audiences

Perhaps the most obvious change to our platform in June was the physical redesign of the website. Thanks to our highly talented team of designers and developers, YouHodler.com is now more user-friendly, attractive and informative. If you haven’t already, go there now to see the fresh look, and engaging content. Also worth noticing are the newly added loan and conversion calculators, seen on the landing page for your convenience.

July: Manage your crypto/fiat wallets and loans on the go with YouHodler mobile app

The end of July saw YouHodler release it’s first version of a mobile app for iOS and Android devices. The app is a streamlined, user-friendly interface that lets users simply deposit and withdraw funds into secure wallets, manage loans, view account activity history and more. All crypto/token wallets (BTC, ETH, XRP, XLM, LTC, BCH, BSV, DASH, EOS, BAT), fiat wallets (USD, EUR) and stablecoin wallets (USDT) are available.

August: USDT Savings Account Gives Users 12% Annual Profit with 0% Effort

YouHodler is happy to announce the release of its USDT savings account, an entirely new feature designed for “HODLers” who will earn up to 12% profit per year with no risk involved. Available for all YouHodler clients, USDT savings account lets users deposit USDT into a wallet on the platform which YouHodler states will grow up to 12% per year.

With the second half of the year upon us, YouHodler has many big plans in store. We can’t give too much away but all new features aim to give users more control and flexibility over their crypto assets. We’re excited to share this with you all as well as hear what innovative ideas you have to offer.

Feel free to send us a message on Telegram, Twitter (@Youhodler) or via emai (support@youhodler.com). All ideas and questions are welcome! Thanks for your support thus far.

Cryptocurrency is Changing The Face of Divorces, and Most People - Including Lawyers, Don't Even Realize It...

To start, the usual legal jargon: I am not your lawyer; nothing in this article is legal advice; I most likely do not practice law in your jurisdiction; and I strongly suggest you speak to a lawyer about your specific situation.

Now, a few answers and comments on cryptocurrency and how it impacts divorces, including how not to go broke.

Are People Hiding Their Cryptocurrency Assets when Divorcing? 

If you were to ask me if I think people are using cryptocurrency to hide assets during a divorce, I would say it is a statistical certainty that people are. In the jurisdiction that I practice law there are zero cases that cite the words ‘cryptocurrency’ or ‘bitcoin’ (yes I know there are other coins) and the relevant Divorce Act. I repeat, zero cases!

Given that it is estimated that at least 5% of individuals hold cryptocurrency assets, that is an impossible statistic. This means people are getting divorced and not disclosing their cryptocurrency. Please note, I cannot stress enough that there are exceedingly large risks and consequences for not disclosing assets during a divorce.

How Can I Find Out If My Spouse is Hiding Cryptocurrency?

If you suspect your spouse is hiding assets, you should look into retaining a forensic accountant, preferably one with cryptocurrency experience. One of the more obvious signs is that your spouse’s transfers out of their bank accounts may show that they are buying cryptocurrency. However, individuals who are knowledgeable about cryptocurrency will be difficult to catch.

Imagine someone trading cash for cryptocurrency during an in-person transaction, this would be nearly impossible to trace.

Disclosure Risk and Public Divorce Documents: How Not to Have Your Cryptocurrency Stolen...

Now, when you are a good law abiding spouse and are disclosing your cryptocurrency assets during a separation, be sure not to have them stolen! Court cases are public information, so anyone can go down to the local courthouse and look at your family law file.

That means that if your cryptocurrency information is attached to a court document someone could steal your assets. In my jurisdiction the court has ruled in at least one case that when providing cryptocurrency documents you can partially redact any necessary information to ensure your assets are protected. So remember, disclose your assets but make sure they are protected as well!

Don’t Go Broke: The Issue with Cryptocurrency’s Large Fluctuations of Value...

Imagine the following scenario:

1. You’re happily married in 2015

2. You buy bitcoin in 2016 for $5,000 per coin. You’re a believer so you bought $100,000 worth!

3. In 2017 bitcoin hits $20,000 per coin, you’re rich! However, the new-found wealth impacts the marriage and you separate that day.

4. Your divorce is contentious and your divorce goes to court. Your divorce case is not decided until 2018. Now bitcoin is worth only $4,000 per coin.

5. In my jurisdiction the relevant dates for calculating net family property are date of marriage and date of separation. According to that, all things else being equal, you owe your spouse half of $400,000 of your bitcoin assets with a per coin cost of $20,000.

I’m sure you can see the massive problem you are now facing. You owe $200,000 to your spouse on an asset that is now only worth a total of $80,000. A strict approach to calculating Net Family Property will leave you destitute and suffering. Thankfully, there are legal arguments to make that you should pay your spouse based on the actual value of the cryptocurrency, not the value of it at the date of separation. These arguments are not guaranteed though, your spouse may not agree with them, and the court may not order it.

So what are some ways to protect yourself if you hold a large amount of cryptocurrency assets? To start a marriage contract, also known as prenuptial agreement, can set out how cryptocurrency assetswill be dealt with in the event of a separation or divorce. Please note, many couples enter into marriage contracts even after they are married so just because you are already married doesn’t mean you can’t protect yourself.

There are an almost unlimited amount of creative and sound ways you can protect yourself and your cryptocurrency assets before and during a divorce. The best option for you will largely depend on your specific fact scenarios and the relevant laws of your jurisdiction. Every country, state, or province is unique in at least one aspect. I highly suggest you speak with a qualified family law lawyer if you have cryptocurrency assets. Most jurisdictions will have a free helpline that will let you speak with a lawyer for up to 30 minutes for free. The best way to find them are to contact your local bar association or regulating body.

Rarely Mentioned Trick of Wealthy Investors - "Stacking" Crypto Loans to Increase Holdings QUICK - But Now YOU Can Too!

From Our Partner Site Covering Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Lending News, CryptocurrencyLoaning.com | We've mentioned countless times how surprised most people are to hear that it's overwhelmingly wealthy people getting cryptocurrency and bitcoin loans, and here you're about to see why.

I even remember bringing this up in a telegram channel, and having someone say "This sounds like Bitconnect" (a notorious scam). That's how unknown this is to the typical crypto investor!

So to be clear - this works with any of the 25+ totally legitimate, established crypto lenders out there!

The one we're featuring today simply created a tool that turns what would have been an hour of opening new loans on top of eachother into the push of a button.

This is a process being used by savvy investors every day - what's new is that anyone can do in the push of a button and not have to worry if they did everything correctly, it'll automatically optimize all the numbers for you to end up with as much as possible.

We should mention - these funds are tax free in most countries!

It's actually a bit crazy to think about, while the general public seems to associate someone taking out a loan as someone down on their luck and short on cash, the wealthy have played the system to their advantage, they hear 'loan' and think 'maximum profits'.

We're going to use 0.050 BTC as an example since it's an most everyday investors have (about $500) and turn it into almost $2000 in a matter of seconds!

First, login to the YouHodler members area - make a free account if you don't have one.

Click on "Turbocharge Crypto" which will bring you to the screen below, here you can see the starting and ending numbers...


Lets take a closer look at how they got you there:


The YouHodler team explains it "Our platform automatically uses the fiat that was lent to buy more crypto without any fee (limited offer) to use as the collateral for the next loan in chain. Furthermore, the interest rate on each loan reduces with every additional step added" it's a pretty simple process with some big results.

If you'd like to try it out signup for a free account, and get your crypto working for you!

Stocks Down, Crypto Up - It's Happened So Often in 2019, Hedging Investments with Crypto Becoming Popular Wall St. Strategy...

Bitcoin has proven this theory over a dozen times already in 2019 when a rough day for the traditional markets were met by bull runs of some of the top cryptocurrencies. 

But with an asset as new and unpredictable as Bitcoin, this will need to stay true for bit longer to really convince traditional investors that this is a reliable hedging method, like it is with gold.

Gold which has skyrocketed even in the worst, long term economic recessions, while cypto has only proven itself as something to turn to for relief on a bad day.

However, one advantage over gold is emerging - when stocks go up, Bitcoin appears to be unaffected, while gold typically declines in value when the rest of the economy is doing well.

While crypto is looking like the perfect hedge for short term investments, the big question remains - would people really turn to crypto in a serious economic downturn, one lasting months or longer? Or, is what we're seeing only because the bad days on Wall Street really aren't that bad?

Still, even if investors wouldn't turn to crypto to get through a bad year, if it continues to help them get though bad days, we can expect a lot more to begin implementing this strategy!

ABBC Releases Major Platform Update, Steps Closer to Crypto eCommerce Vision...

Dubai, UAE, August 9th, 2019 - The ABBC Foundation, in partnership with New York-based custom blockchain development firm, DeepDive.Tech, is proud to announce the production release of ABBC’s new blockchain and multi-platform/multi-crypto wallet.

ABBC Foundation, the company behind Buyaladdin, has just announced the release of a major platform update to the ABBC ecosystem. This update includes a multitude of features that make ABBC a “world class transactional blockchain overnight” according to their CEO, Mr. Jason Daniel Paul Philip.

Aside from the Buyaladdin platform which is slated to launch in October, Mr. Philip shared something that ABBC supporters can get excited about — a whole new blockchain ecosystem and wallet overhaul.

Additionally, the ABBC Team will be releasing an updated ABBC whitepaper soon, but prior to that, the team announced a few sneak peeks for their users. With the new mainnet now in place, ABBC customers will experience transactions speeds that are an order of magnitude faster than the previous mainnet, a hassle-free migration between the old and new ABBC blockchain, as well as benefit from a globally distributed, highly availability and responsive enterprise-grade network, just to name a few.

Major Wallet Upgrades

The new ABBC mobile wallet has been completely re-designed by DeepDive.tech from the ground up and offers many new capabilities which have been developed with the “everyday” end-user in mind.

With the newly designed ABBC wallet, users will now be able to easily transact with not just their ABBC coins, but with a significant amount of existing tokens, all while using the ABBC wallet on any of the supported major operating system platforms (Android, iOS and desktop). The new ABBC wallet also offers full support for other major cryptocurrencies, and currently supports all ERC-20 tokens (1,600 tokens to be exact), with additional token types to be supported in the near future.

Simply put, the ABBC wallet platform enables users to transact across multiple wallet addresses supporting multiple accounts and cryptocurrencies, all from the end user computing platform of your choice.

With upgrades come the topic of migration, and typically migrating is a big hassle for users, but not with this update. According to the DeepDive.tech, the development partner of ABBC, the upgraded wallet only requires users to click twice to migrate from the former ABBC MC Wallet or Aladdin Wallet to the new Gen 2 ABBC wallet and blockchain. The wallet migration process is so simple and straightforward that users simply need to enter the email address that was used when configuring their previous wallet, and then click on a one-time use link which will confirm ownership of their email address. From there, the wallet and funds migration process will happen instantly.

From Hybrid to DPoS: Faster and More Secure

In addition to the deployment of the new ABBC mainnet and wallet, the ABBC blockchain has updated their consensus algorithm from a hybrid combination of Proof-of-Work (PoW) and Proof-of- Stake (PoS) to Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) which delivers enhanced network security, integrity, scalability, and speed.

According to the ABBC Development Team, the new ABBC mainnet already supports 5,000 transactions per second, making the blockchain arguably one of the top performers in the industry today. Tad Einstein, CTO of development partner DeepDive.tech, mentioned that “5,000 transactions per second is just the start and you can expect to see these numbers increase significantly over time. What makes BBC’s next-gen blockchain ecosystem unique is that we have implemented several disruptive blockchain technologies within the mainnet which will ensure the project’s current and future performance requirements are met.” Boris Heismann, CIO of DeepDive.tech, also stated that “The new ABBC ecosystem has been created with special features which make it the most efficient blockchain for broad FinTech adoption. Implementing these design considerations were instrumental when you consider Buyaladdin’s global 10 -million customer user base.” Another item that came up in conversation was that each block is being generated every half a second, providing a seamless user experience when transacting.

Distributed Global Infrastructure

The mainnet has been architected to be highly available and globally distributed to ensure a predictable quality of experience for end-users. The global infrastructure supporting the mainnet leverages a hybrid deployment model, with ABBC nodes being strategically distributed across Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and privately-owned data centers. This deployment model affords the ABBC blockchain with enterprise grade reliability and resiliency while delivering a low latency transactional experience for consumers.

The Fastest, Easiest $50 Worth of Crypto You'll Ever Earn...

Recently I researched the Crypto App for a story on how they're paying interest on Binance's BNB token for people who store it with them.  That's when another offer caught my eye, and today I got around to giving it a shot.

Get $100 worth of Bitcoin or Ethereum ...for $50!

You must be a new user, and it needs to be done though an invite link (this is one).

Their token is called MCO, and when you buy $50 you get $50 - which you can immediately sell for $100 in Bitcoin, Ethereum.

Meaning they're basically selling $100 worth of Bitcoin for $50!

From there - you can transfer it all to any wallet you want.

But I actually do suggest checking out some of the other things they're up to...

I'm actually not here to encourage pulling a 'fast one' on them, this company has some pretty cool stuff going on. 

What I did is got my first $50 back, and left $50 there - this means i'm allowed to request their "crypto back" Visa Card. 

It's free, and when it gets here i'll be able to earn 1% back on any purchase I make with it, and that 1% comes in the form of more of their tokens!

August Crypto Outlook: Everything Crypto Universe Will Be Focusing on in August...

Welcome to the August Crypto Outlook with Contentworks, an agency specializing in content marketing for financial services, crypto and blockchain.

In July, cryptocurrencies didn’t have a good month. The price of Bitcoin dropped by 4% while that of Ethereum and Ripple declined by 25% and 20% respectively. This happened as investors grew wary about the state of the industry following a series of hearings in Washington. Key Facebook executives responsible for the Libra project were interviewed by the senate and congress. Another reason for the decline was that hackers managed to steal cryptocurrencies worth more than $32 million from a Japanese exchange.

In August, investors will pay close attention to Litecoin, which is one of the best-performing cryptocurrencies this year after gaining by more than 200%. Litecoin will be in the news as the halving event takes place. Halving is a process in which the rewards for miners are reduced by half. This process is aimed at preserving the currency’s purchasing power. After the halving, the reward will drop from25 litecoins to 12.5 litecoins per block. This will reduce the supply and therefore, the market expects the price to continue moving higher. For Bitcoin, the next halving is expected to take place in May 2020.

Investors will also be following news about Libra, the “cryptocurrency” that is set to be launched by Facebook. The currency was announced in June and is expected to go live in 2019. In July, there were a number of hearings in Washington about the currency. A number of global policymakers like Mario Draghi, Jerome Powell, and Mark Carney have warned about the implication of the currency on the market. The same statements have been repeated by politicians in Europe, Australia, and the U.S.

Security will be a major focus among crypto investors this month. This is after the $32 million hack from a Japanese exchange in July. For the industry to remain vibrant, investors need to be sure that their coins are safe. In 2018, cryptocurrencies worth more than $1 billion was stolen. This has left regulators scrambling on how to regulate and ensure that the crypto are safe.

On the issue of regulations, the United Kingdom’s main regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) announced that it had finalised its review of the cryptocurrencies. It clarified that some currencies fall under its jurisdiction. Some cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and ether are classified as exchange tokens, meaning that they are not regulated. In the statement, the authority said: “Any token that is not a security token, or an e-money token is unregulated. However, market participants should note certain activities that use tokens may nevertheless be regulated, for example, when used to facilitate regulated payments.”

In August, crypto enthusiasts will also be looking at several key events. In Seattle, the TruffleCon event, will take place on 2 nd to 4 th August. The event is targeted to developers who want to build applications using decentralized technologies. In Canada, the Blockchain Futurist Conference will take place on August 12 to 14. This is the highest profile blockchain event in the country that will bring together more than 2500 participants. In New York, the Elev8 conference will take place on August 13 and 14. Other key events that will take place in the month will be the Blockchain Summit in Singapore, Blockchain Conference Hamburg, and Bloconomic Expo in Malaysia.

At Contentworks, our team of financial professionals closely follows market movements for FX, Crypto and other tradable instruments. We are proud to serve some of the biggest crypto and fintech companies in the world by delivering high-impact articles, videos, PR and white papers.

Getting Hooked On A New, Highly Addictive Way To Trade Crypto - They'll Even Give You $5 To Try it Out With....

BXB Exchange has just launched what a lot of people are calling 'the most addicting way to invest in crypto' and in the process of writing this review I learned exactly what they mean.

They call it "tap trading" and it consists of a 5 minute round following the price movement of a coin in real time.  It's not gambling, but it does feel like you're playing a game, it's crypto trading on steroids... or maybe even something stronger.

How To Tap Trade - It's Simple...


There's a button you should push when you think the price is going to move upwards (so you buy low), and another button for when you think the price will move downwards (so you sell high).

What you're actually looking at is a zoomed in price chart, and while the price fluctuates your making quick buys and sells.

BXB describes tap trading as "...a unique trading product launched by BXB to satisfy the trading needs of traders looking to quickly enter and exit a position. The purpose of this feature is to allow users to track the rapid price fluctuations of a coin to allow them to easily and instantly execute a buy/sell at the press of a button."

100X Leverage Is The Game Changer...

Buying/selling prices can be just a few cents apart - so BXB runs your orders with 100X leverage! Now those pennies are worth dollars and dollars are worth your time.

In fact, they automatically boost every bet to 100x leverage - you're now playing with $100 in value for every $1 you actually hold.  I've played a couple different days now to try it out, and both times there was enough movement upward sand downwards where I was placing over 10 buy/sell orders per 5 minute round, sometimes more!

Observe for a few minutes before jumping in, it felt like after a couple minutes I was starting to get a feeling for signs the price was about to make a significant movement. You can earn some pretty good returns for what feels more like fun than business.

But remember the money is real, so know you limits on 'fun' if you know what I mean.

They're giving all new users a $5 credit, plus 10 BXB tokens to try it out here.

Tweet us what you thought of this new trading method, and how tell us how much you grew that $5 into @GlobalCrytoDev!
