My reference, of course, is to Franz Kafka’s “The Trial”, in which the protagonist Josef K. is accused of crimes the nature of which are never actually specified, and enmeshed in a process designed to degrade, humiliate, and destroy him whether or not he has in fact committed any crime at all. The only way out of the trap is for him to acquiesce in his own destruction

Agent-based models have managed to reproduce for example the characteristic boom-bust nature of housing or stock markets, or the effect of people’s expectations on inflation.

The way to think of pricing cryptocurrency is as speculation above some floor determined by the growth of the network according to Metcalfe's law. There are also various other metrics that probably correspond to price like the number of transactions, the number of wallets, and the hash power wielded by the network.

Some exchanges face banking issues and so can't hold fiat moneys. Instead they turn to a centralized cryptocurrency called Tether which is pegged to the price of the dollar. There are claims that this currency is not backed by real USD and that it is being used to manipulate cryptocurrency markets.

Tom Lee, the cofounder of FundStrat Global Advisors, is bullish on bitcoin and has a unique way of valuing the cryptocurrency. He says his short-term valuation model, built on Metcalfe's law, can explain the majority of bitcoin's volatility.

One persistent online critic, going by the screen name Bitfinex’ed, has written several very detailed essays on Medium arguing that Bitfinex appears to be creating Tether coins out of thin air and then using them to buy Bitcoin and push the price up.

Bitcoin Cash was created when Bitcoin developers had a dispute about the best way to scale the network to meet rising demand. Some developers and miners hard-forked the bitcoin blockchain by increasing the number of transactions that a single block can support in the process creating a new ledger with a very similar set of rules.

Ethereum extends bitcoin by incorporating a more complete, easier-to-use, but less secure programming language to implement smart contracts. Ethereum trades security for ease of use because of this developers have chosen it as the platform on which to launch the first decentralized applications sometimes with associated initial coin offerings.

A token sale is like a crowdfunding campaign, except it uses the technology behind Bitcoin to verify transactions. Oh, and tokens aren’t just stand-ins for stock—they can be set up so that instead of a share of a company, holders get services, like cloud storage space, for example. Below, we run down the increasingly popular practice of launching an ICO and its potential to upset business as we know it.

Ripple is actually a company, but they created a cryptocurrency called XRP. XRP is pre-mined meaning all coins were created at once and then distributed or sold to various parties. XRP solves the double-spend problem differently than bitcoin, there is no proof of work. Whereas Bitcoin's origins are philosophically opposed to existing financial infrastructure and bitcoinattempts to route around it, Ripple and XRP are aimed at improving existing financial infrastructure via cryptocurrency tech.

the main innovation of cryptocurrency is that you can keep this digital record on all the computers on a peer to peer network without having to rely on a central authority to prevent any of the peers from double spending their balance.

A purely peer-to-peer version of electronic cash would allow online payments to be sent directly from one party to another without going through a financial institution. Digital signatures provide part of the solution, but the main benefits are lost if a trusted third party is still required to prevent double-spending. We propose a solution to the double-spending problem using a peer-to-peer network.
