    Litecoin always was and will be for a long time a good coin. It was forget by people, but will back to take your market cap. I always have some hold money on it and I believe that 2018 will be a good year for Litecoin

    Careful everyone…. I see a ascending wedge on the 1hr. Almost at the peak.

    Macd falling

    Volume also falling

    I would say another drop is imminent, but draw your own conclusions based on your TA

    Etoro now lists XLM which will massively open it up to the average ‘dont know anything about crypto’ guys, but i really dont understand why they have chosen that particular one out of all the great coins out there?

    What is your favorite crypto product that you actually use? Be it the actual coin (Bitcoin), a dapp or product that uses the coin (Brave Browser), a product associated with the company that make the coin (Enjin Wallet) or anything like that.

  5. First of all met me give big giant props to /u/kinokomori, /u/Sunny_McJoyride, /u/richdota, /u/philldaagony, and a couple of others for their very helpful advice to this cryptonoob — I decided to take that advice and invest in an external digital wallet (a KeepKey specifically). Not cheap (its price is nearly 10% of the value of my BTC), but it’s an investment.

    Now I have another question, and I know this is something I should probably know, but this is my first time doing this, so please go easy on me.

    I set up the KeepKey following the instructions. I logged into my exchange, BitFlyer, and initiated a payment to the address that the KeepKey generated. The KeepKey’s address was shown on a QR code and all I had to do was hold my phone up to the QR code to get BitFlyer to read it, so I know I didn’t type it wrong.

    Bitflyer shoes 0.01 BTC being sent, but KeepKey shows… nothing. The device itself just displays the KeepKey logo, and the app on my computer shows no transactions.

    Have I just sent bitcoin off into space, into nowhere?

    Or am I missing something?

    *Edit: for future Bitflyer users reading this thread: I also got an accompanying e-mail from Bitflyer and this is what it looks like:*

    *This is a confirmation that you have sent 0.0108 BTC (awaiting approval).
    In order to maintain the highest level of security, bitFlyer approves Bitcoins which are sent externally.
    Once approved, the sent amount will be reflected. We appreciate your patience.*

    *Thank you for your continued support of bitFlyer.*

    *[Your registered external Bitcoin address]

    This e-mail was generated *immediately* after I initiated the transfer, and about 35 minutes after sending the BTC, and hitting the refresh button on my computer, the 0.01 BTC showed up on the KeepKey app!
