Bitcoin halvening – What you need to know

My traiding work space

My traiding work space
In this article I will just show you my workspace, how I work, and how it all looks. As I wrote earlier, there is manual and automated trading. For robots, of course, everything is simple: create it, launch it and the robot is ready to trade. Of course, from time to time I make sure that there are no surprises, bugs and problems. Initially, people think that after creating a robot, you can start it up and forget about it. But in fact, in trading, it is important to have everything in the field of attention: experience shows that otherwise you can get unpleasant losses (although there are sometimes pleasant random profits, but still losses are more often). A few examples below:

Okex spot BTCUSDT
Here is an example of a work area on the Okex spot BTCUSDT, where the purple histograms are for a cluster (volumetric) market analysis, on the basis of which I consider trading points within a day (for example, at the time of writing this article, it is assumed that a buy trade will be opened, with an exit at a price closer to 10750). The next example: the MOEX exchange, RTSI futures. The robot is working.

Rim0 on Micex
At the moment, the robot is out of position. There was a very effective short position, after which the algorithm is looking for new entry points. The same algorithm works with Bitcoin, as well as with the S&P500 futures.

BTC on Binance futures
Everything is simple and clear, the red arrow is a short position, the green one is a long one. At the moment, a short position on the Bitcoin market at a price close to 12000 is opened. The robot has no targets, and it does not assume where to close, and despite the profitability of the current transaction, it can also close at a loss (who knows, but I hope not!))). The same pattern works on the esm0 market

Esm0
Unfortunately, the profit is calculated only in absolute terms (entry price - exit price = profit). In fact, 1 step of the price for esm0 costs $12.5, and therefore the actual profit is not $37, but $1850. These are just initial examples so that you can have an idea of what I am doing. In future articles, I will talk about the analysis methods that I have already used. If you have any questions, write me, I'm always glad to talk!!

Guide: How to redeem and sell bitcoin diamond (bcd) from ledger nano s (Segwit)

I spent two days to figure this out but I think I know how to solve this, just currently stuck and need your help! I had btc stored on a nano s segwit wallet before the fork.
Bitcoin diamond was forked from bitcoin on block #495866 (nov 24 2017) and launched the mainnet Jan 5 2018 (I think). There is currently very little information about this project and very little support on exchanges, wallets and mining. http://btcd.io
The only light wallet currently have a splitting tool is Bither for Android but they do not support Segwit. If you had your btc in a segwit wallet before the fork you can't use this method.
Otherwise follow this: https://steemit.com/bitcoin/@tiberiu/how-i-claimed-sbtc-super-bitcoin-from-my-paper-wallet Or this: https://www.reddit.com/BitcoinMarkets/comments/7oekie/guide_how_to_redeem_and_sell_all_bitcoin_fork/
You get 10 bcd for every btc and current price is 0.001 btc. That means you get $160/ forked btc which is 1% free money. Is it worth it? For me it is. You can use same method for both SBTC and BCD. Other methods can be used for BTX, BCX and BFX but have to wait for me. Need segwit support in Coinomi and/or Bither.
In my BCD case it was a bit more complicated but hopefully possible.
  1. Move btc from ledger nano to somewhere save
  2. Download the BIP39 converter (standalone version). Unplug your internet and run the html: https://github.com/iancoleman/bip39
  3. Enter your ledger 24 word mnemonic. Select BIP49 derivation path. Find your btc address that contained btc right before block 495866, copy private key. Use a block explorer: https://blockchain.info
  4. Find the tx ID that sent those btc and verify in bcd explorer if you have any bcd before you continue (click on the actual address will not work for some reason, shows empty). My tx had 3000 confirmations. http://explorer.btcd.io
  5. Now the complicated part =) You have to build bitcoin diamond core app from source because it doesn't exist yet: https://github.com/eveybcd/BitcoinDiamond
  6. I built it for windows x64 using this guide (by cloning bitcoin diamond from github instead of bitcoin when you come to that step). Took 1h.: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/blob/mastedoc/build-windows.md
  7. Actually quite cool you can run Ubuntu on Windows 10! You can build for 32 bit as well but not when you have installed dependencies for x64. The last step will copy the binaries to your windows folder: "make install DESTDIR=/mnt/c/workspace/bitcoindiamond"
  8. Run bitcoindiamond-qt in windows and let it sync with network. Took me 12h with fiber connection.
  9. Go to help and open console. If your wallet is encrypted, decrypt for 10min using: "walletpassphrase your-wallet-passphrase 600".
  10. Import old btc address as watch-only to check bcd balance. True means it will rescan the blockchain. Rescan took 1h with a decent PC (no SSD):
  11. If you see your BCD balance, now Import your btc private key into the watch-only address. No need to rescan again, thus "false".:
Ok here is where I'm stuck. I can see my balance but it's not spendable. I also tried to import private key directly (with sync) with empty core wallet but balance is still zero. It does not pick up the transaction! Anyone know how to solve this?
Rest of the guide when this is solved:

Blockchain tutorial 26: Bitcoin transaction - YouTube Bitcoin Transaction Explained in 5 Minutes - YouTube How Does Bitcoin Transactions Work? Fully Anonymous Bitcoin Transactions With A Bitcoin Mixer ... How do bitcoin transactions work?  Simply Explained for Beginners  BTC.com

Bitcoin transactions can be thought of as digital messages which are sent to the entire Bitcoin (BTC) network to be verified. Each transaction comes with a digital cryptographic signature that is tied to the owner’s wallet of the transaction and it acts as proof that you own the private keys that control the Bitcoins. In order to start from scratch, one is best introduced to the matter of Bitcoin mining through its primary functions. As mentioned in the introduction above, this process serves to validate the Bitcoin transactions on the blockchain. Simply put, if Sally wants to send 3 BTC to John, she would do so by entering John’s e-wallet address and sending the money across the blockchain. In contrast, a private key must be kept secret as it authorizes the bitcoin associated with a public key (bitcoin address) to be spent. Using the private key associated with their bitcoin, a user can sign transactions and thereby transfer the value to a new owner. The transaction is then broadcast to the network to be included in the blockchain. Miners are in charge of making sure bitcoin transactions made by users are recorded and legit. Simply put, they do this by grouping every new bitcoin transaction made during a set time frame into ... Miners do not work to verify transactions by adding blocks to the distributed ledger purely out of a desire to see the Bitcoin network run smoothly; they are compensated for their work as well.
