GoByte has released their mobile app which allows merchants to bypass charges while accepting digital currency and provides consumers with a seamless and easy-to-use shop experience.
GoByte Pay mobile is available today on the iOS app store and on google play for Android and offers free payment solution which is accessible to any business owner while remaining secure and hack-resistant. The app has an elegant design and is easy for both new and experienced users, as reported in the official project’s blog.
GoByte Pay Mobile app provides most of the functionality of the GoByte Pay gateway and online wallet. Users and consumers can move funds between their wallets, manage their assets, and view their entire payment history all from their phone.
The first version of the app has everything a user needs to send and receive payments and keep track of their transactions while remaining as easy-to-use as an ordinary mobile app and secure as a bank account. High-level security is ensured by additional anti-hack protection; TouchID and FaceID are used along with a password for better protection of assets.
The developers have also refined the existing cryptocurrency payment solutions and included wider functionality for an ordinary trader, investor or merchant needs:
- Synchronized access
All transactions are synchronized and available on the desktop and on mobile in real-time, so no matter where you access GoByte Pay, you are always up to date.
- QR code payment
GoByte Pay supports instant fund transfers using QR code either at a point of sale or via smartphone and PC. For sending or receiving the payment in one swipe it’s enough to scan QR code or paste the necessary address.
- Automatic conversion
Live conversion built into the wallet allows for instant tracking of the currency rate and shows the current balance in USD.
- Full transaction history
In the transactions session, full details are disclosed to give a user real-time control of the expenditure and incoming resources.
- Built-in address book
The easy-to-use address book makes it simple to keep the addresses of recipients, who are sent money frequently, in one central location to make it easy peasy to schedule and manage future transactions.
- Push notifications
The team has enabled push notifications in the mobile app so users will be immediately updated when they receive a payment or anything happens with the GoByte app.
The easy-to-use intuitive interface creates a welcoming place for managing money on the GoByte network. With the expansion of supported currencies in the near future, GoByte users will enjoy an application with among the most beautiful UI/UX experience and its powerful capabilities.
The naming/ tagging capabilities and all the other characteristics, which make GoByte Pay among the most powerful web wallet creation providers, are now available in the mobile version, meaning users can easily categorize all their transactions for business and personal, based on their needs.
Masternode holders were excited to see that they can manage their investment in Masternodes from the web interface and they will enjoy that same capability in the mobile app. With GoByte Pay they can make sure their investment is working for them anytime and anywhere.
Additionally, the application can solve the problem of poor adoption in retail stores by creating an API to help existing terminals easily connect to POS terminals. Along with InstantSend and free transactions, GoByte is planning to issue their own cryptocurrency debit cards, ATMs and POS terminals to further fuel the cryptocurrency payments popularity.
According to Huffington Post, vending machine company, iVend was first to test GoByte Pay on their cryptocurrency payment enabled coffee machines. GoByte and iVend struck a deal to install GoByte Pay on all of iVend’s point of sale systems around the world.
“GoByte’s mission is to be the leader in making cryptocurrency payments easier for users and merchants around the world, through the GoByte Pay platform”, states Hisyam Nasir, CEO of GoByte. – “We are developing a simple, powerful and adaptable platform which includes features that small and large businesses require to accept and process cryptocurrency payments.”
According to developers, the application will be built in POS terminals, which support random switch between addresses, visual and sound indication of payments received, and what’s most important – work offline.
The GoByte team is planning to integrate Bitcoin, Litecoin, BitcoinCash, and other popular cryptocurrencies shortly to approach a wider audience.
Tiffany Hayden Claims XRP Price Will Eventually Catch Up With Development!
In a heated debate on Twitter, Financial advisor and XRP enthusiast Tiffany Hayden was embroiled in a discussion around the price of XRP.
CCN News initially tweeted an article regarding PayPal Director Xapo CEO Wences Casares stating ‘One Bitcoin Could Exceed $1 Million in 7-10 years”
The tweet caught the attention of many followers quite noticeably an XRP supporter who speculated their opinions on XRP’s price.
@xrpdoll tweeted “And 1 XRP could exceed $42,000 in 7-10 years!”
This was then met by a barrage of insults indicating XRP could not reach such price due to its market cap.
Has the bear market brought out the worst in some Cryptocurrency communities spreading relentless toxicity?
And more importantly…
Will there ever be an end to the continuous division between Bitcoin maximalists and XRP Maximalists?
Tiffany Hayden responded to one of the replies adding;
I know the bear market has been difficult, particularly for people who bought at the peak, but the direction and momentum of $XRP have only increased since then. At some point, the price will *finally* reflect that. And then the haters will all scream “price manipulation!”
It is easy to forget during the 2018 bear market that Ripple was one of the few Cryptocurrency projects making significant progress and paving the way for adoption with financial institutions, banks, and payment providers.
Ripples progress has also been unmatched with the confirmation of partnering with over 200 banks worldwide, over 100 financial institutions around 40 countries in six different continents.
Not to mention…
Equally successful provided liquidity for cross border payments using XRP and utilizing payment providers such as Mercury FX and Cuallix – Some of the first customers to adopt xRapid to increase payment speed and make it substantially cheaper for their customers.
A key indication of the innovative strides Ripple was making!
Breakthrough XRP Utility and Academic Advancements
While this market traction has had a profound impact on its customers and clients, Ripple’s year of breakthroughs also expanded beyond the cross-border payments use case.
We saw new utility and diversity spread across the XRP ecosystem. Ripple launched the Xpring initiative in May to build infrastructure and drive growth in blockchain through investments and partnerships. In just half a year, Xpring has helped develop several notable blockchain projects, including SB Projects, Coil, Omni and Securitize.
XRP is currently trading at $0.32 against the USD and currently down 90% from its all-time high around $3.40.
However, whilst it’s easy to recognize the current undervalued price of XRP, investors should be aware that the bear market would not last forever.
The Cryptocurrency space moves in cyclical frequencies and eventually, the price of XRP will catch up with the unwavering development that has occurred during this difficult time.
Do you want to know the key to becoming a successful investor in this market?
Having a long-term outlook on the development of Ripple/XRP and acknowledging this is at least a 5-10 year project.
The price of XRP now will truly be a blessing for those that remained patient throughout this period.
Bitcoin (BTC) Closes Below 50 Week EMA But Shorts Decline Around 20%
The most anticipated event of the week which was the BTC/USD weekly close is now over. The price has just closed below both its 50 Week EMA as well as the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level. This means that the ongoing weekly candle now has a higher probability of being red and could at least fall towards the 200 Week EMA if not lower. The Stochastic RSI on the weekly time frame shows that Bitcoin (BTC) has not been this overbought since the beginning of the bear market. Even when the price topped in late 2017, the Stochastic RSI was much lower than it currently is. This means that there should be no doubt that the price is poised for a sharp decline, the only question is when.
Bitcoin (BTC)’s close below the 50 Week EMA and the 61.8% Fib retracement level should have been a confidence booster for the bears but the exact opposite has happened. The number of margined shorts has declined around 20% and could continue to decline if BTC/USD trades sideways. Bitcoin (BTC) may be quite close to its true bottom but the fact remains that it is more overbought than it was when the bear market started. Perhaps, the sentiment is also a lot more bullish than it was back then. When the price topped around December, 2017 and the rally slowed down, a lot of people were concerned that BTC/USD had a parabolic run and will not have to come down. This time however, a few pumps to the upside has convinced majority of the bulls that the bear market is over regardless of what the technicals say.
If the rise in BTC/USD was gradual and sustainable with higher highs and higher lows, it would be a bit hard to deny it can’t keep going up even if the price had been overbought short term. However, that is now what has happened. We have seen a clear lack of bullish momentum in the price action. There is too much friction and the price is too weak to break past resistance levels smoothly, but then we see a pump to the upside and the bulls are excited again. However, every time the bulls push after a pump, the whales dump on them. So far, they have allowed the price to rally to trap in as many bulls as possible with their high leveraged positions.
The weekly chart for BTCUSD Shorts shows what is going on. The number of margined shorts has declined to its trend line support as the bulls confidently expect a rally towards $6,000 or higher. The retail bears have been affected by this sudden sentiment shift in favor of the bulls which is why the shorts have declined so heavily. The weekly chart shows that BTCUSDShorts is now long overdue for a strong trend reversal which would see the number of shorts rise again. This means that Bitcoin (BTC) is far from being out of the woods just yet and could see significant downside in the months ahead.
John McAfee Stops Promoting Skycoin Cryptocurrency, a Controversial Token, Despite His Tattoo
John McAfee, one of the most popular crypto supporters in the space, announced that he is not supporting Skycoin anymore.
This comes after the decision he took to make a tattoo related to the digital asset.
I got a Skycoin (https://t.co/2oeokRUOME) tattoo today. My tech folks will stitch a two minute video together that should capture the essence of the experience. For now, this short clip should summarize. Why Skycoin? If you have to ask, you've been living in a fucking closet. pic.twitter.com/c6plwQrH2t

I'll keep it as a reminder that no matter how old I get, I still get scammed by unscrupulous people with pie in the sky plans. They almost drove me to violence.

McAfee started promoting this project back on November 4. In order to increase adoption and show that he was truly devoted to the project. Once McAfee decided to show its support to the digital asset, SKY increased 45% of its value.
At the time of writing this article, SKY is the 203rd largest digital asset in the market. It has a market capitalization of $15 million and each coin can be purchased for $1.12.
Since its all-time high in January 2018, the digital currency lost more than 98% of its value, being one of the biggest losers in the market. BitConnect (BCC), for example, lost 99% of its value after the Ponzi and pyramid scheme handled by the company fell.
McAfee has been promoting different Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) during several months and it has also offered its support to many different projects and digital assets released to the market.
