In this article, we will go through the benefits of using a Bitcoin mining pool. But first, it is important to understand what a mining pool is. Bitcoin mining pools Bitcoin mining is the name given to the process of transactions being verified and added to the blockchain digital ledger. Every time a transaction is made, it is the miner’s responsibility to ensure the authenticity of the information and to update the blockchain.

Research from United States-based blockchain intelligence firm Chainalysis indicates that only 1.3% of economic transactions for bitcoin (BTC) came from merchants in the first four months of 2019.

00:22 BitcoinMagazine.comOp Ed: Debunking Bitcoin Myths, The ‘Intrinsic Value’ Fallacy

One of the earliest criticisms of Bitcoin was that the underlying token in the system had no intrinsic value. This point was an area of heavy debate among libertarians and Austrian economists who had become interested in bitcoin as a potential digital alternative to gold in the early stages of the crypto asset’s development.
Much of the debate revolved around Austrian school economist Ludwig Von Mises’ regression theorem, which claims non-monetary use cases as a prerequisite for any good to become a money.
Like many others, I fell on the side of bitcoin lacking any sort of intrinsic value after first learning about the new digital asset, but this was largely due to my lack of understanding around bitcoin’s utility as a digital bearer asset at the time (around 2011 to 2012).

The Bitcoin mining hash rate is currently at 58,000,000 TH/s and is fast approaching its mid-2018 highs of nearly 60,000,000 TH/s. The hash rate has made a surprise comeback after falling to almost half its current total during the December 2018 capitulation in BTC price. The total daily block and transaction reward paid to miners has also seen an almost four-fold increase in the last six months, rising from under $5 million to currently above $20 million a day. Key to the recent rise in miner revenues has been the huge increase in transaction fees, which have gone from a daily total of $63,000 in late March to now more than $1 million a day over the last few weeks.

In 2018, Shawki Allam, the Grand Mufti of Egypt, issued a ban on cryptocurrencies due to concerns being raised over potential tax evasion, money laundering, and other cases of fraud. Last April, Bitcoin was declared as being halal – which means permissible under Sharia Law – for a number of predominantly Muslim countries. However, Egypt has remained firm on its ban until this week. The Central Bank of Egypt (CBE) has issued a new banking law that means cryptocurrency firms will be able to operate if they can obtain a necessary license in advance.

Summary:

Bitcoin is currently perched between a well-defined band of prices outlined on both the weekly and monthly timeframes.As we float between the weekly/monthly horizontals, volume is beginning to diminish on both the supply and the demand sides. However, what little supply has surfaced has appeared to be absorbed. If we can maintain support on our weekly $8,200 level, we can expect to see the market push to test the upper boundaries of the resistance in the $9,200 to $9,500 range.However, if support does not hold and we manage to fall through, we can expect to see a much deeper test and potentially revisit the $6,400 to $6,800 range.
