HTC will preload a Bitcoin Cash wallet on its blockchain phone

HTC will preload a Bitcoin Cash wallet on its blockchain phone If a second blockchain phone didn't make things clear, HTC is still as serious as ever about its crypto-phones On Monday, the company announced a new partnership with Bitcoin.com that will see all new Exodus 1 phones come with the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) wallet app pre-installed. On existing devices, meanwhile, HTC will push an update that adds the app to the phone. As part of the partnership, the Bitcoin.com online store has also started selling Exodus 1 devices. In the future, if you don't plan on hoarding on your Bitcoin Cash, you'll be able to get a discount on select HTC smartphones when you pay for a device with Bitcoin Cash.

(Bloomberg) -- Bitcoin.com, the firm backed by crypto evangelist Roger Ver, is working on multiple ideas to ramp up interest in Bitcoin spinoff Bitcoin Cash, including a futures contract.

The goal is for Bitcoin Cash to become one of the largest cryptocurrencies in the world behind Bitcoin, according to the new head of its recently launched exchange unit, David Shin, who was most recently Asia head of global equity derivative sales at TD Securities.

“Within a year I want to make that the second- or third-largest market cap,” Shin said. “To get from No. 4 to No. 3 or No. 2, we have to see more volume.”

To generate that volume, Shin said he has begun discussions to list a Bitcoin Cash futures product on a Commodity Futures Trading Commission-regulated exchange, and “would love to speak with CME about listing a BCH future.” CME Group Inc. currently markets Bitcoin futures contracts.

Bitcoin treads water around $8,000 after its worst week of the year

  Bitcoin treads water around $8,000 after its worst week of the year The price of bitcoin struggled to remain above the $8,000 level Sunday, following its worst weekly price loss of the year. Bitcoin (BTCUSD) was above $10,000 as recently as last Sunday, but has since fallen about 20%. As of Sunday night, bitcoin was around $8,020, according to CoinDesk.The leading cryptocurrency has fallen about 34% over the past three months. In June, bitcoin topped the $10,000 mark for the first time since early 2018.“Bitcoin’s recent price drop is a result of technical and fundamental factors,” Bitbull Capital CEO Joe DiPasquale wrote last week, according to Barron’s.

Shin is also looking to work with a retail broker so U.S. investors can trade the regulated product.

“We’ll try to list a BCH future on one of these exchanges that’s CFTC regulated to therefore have a product that can be traded into the U.S. with institutional traders,” he said. “In theory we should see more penetration, more users, more trading and more volume.”

On the retail side, Shin wants to develop an eSports-like trading tournament whose ultimate goal is to create crypto influencers -- people retail investors will gravitate to in an industry that remains strongly personality-driven.

Shin joined Bitcoin.com at the end of August to run its exchange business, which debuted Sept. 2. Ver, one of the most prominent supporters of Bitcoin Cash and known in the industry as “Bitcoin Jesus,” became executive chairman in August when he appointed Stefan Rust as the new CEO of Bitcoin.com.

Digital Gold Mantra Revived After Bitcoin Tops Technical Hurdle

Digital Gold Mantra Revived After Bitcoin Tops Technical Hurdle Bitcoin extended its recent rally above $10,000 on Friday, crossing over a key technical level that could mean further gains ahead. The largest digital token climbed above its 50-day moving average, an indicator used to analyze trends and potential inflection points. Though it has been trading in a narrow range between its 50- and 100-day moving averages for weeks, some analysts see the former acting as a ceiling. A decisive break above could be a bullish signal.

Bitcoin Cash is the result of clashes among various factions disagreeing on the future development of the base Bitcoin blockchain. Given mainstream investors’ skepticism for even the original flavor of Bitcoin, it’s an even more difficult proposition drumming up interest in alt-coins further down the food chain.

“I don’t think the institutions really know what BCH is, so I want to be out there to change that rhetoric,” Shin said. “There’s a real opportunity if we believe two contracts are not enough, and maybe three to five is the right number, that the third one should be Bitcoin Cash.”
