Coin Sheet - July 23, 2017

◤WHAT PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT

Chainsplit: The Merkle came out with an article titled Bitcoin may Still see a Blockchain Split on August 1st.

The tl:dr is that "while the BIP91 lock-in makes SegWit2x and the UAHF compatible, it does nothing to address the Bitcoin ABC issue. This user-activated hard fork will still go into effect on August 1st and seemingly gains more traction every single week."

Is this FUD (definition below) or might there actually be a hard fork due to ideological differences like we've had with Ethereum and Ethereum Classic?

In Illuminati News: Looks like the Rothschild bought some Bitcoin via a Bitcoin Investment Trust.

It appears to be about $210,000 worth of their $880,816,000 portfolio. You can read more about it here.


◤WORD(S) YOU SHOULD KNOW

FUD - Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt. This term is used to describe the malicious spread of negativity. This is often done with the goal of causing inexperienced members to sell, or possibly cause a temporary dip in price.


◤THINGS I LIKE

I found this neat Noob's Quick Guide to MAST on reddit. MAST is an abbreviation for Merkelized Abstract Syntax Trees, and it's supposed to increase speed, scalability and privacy of Litecoin.


◤MARKET SENTIMENT

The overall is still very bullish but it looks like some pressure has been getting to Litecoin.

What is this? Read here
