IOTA, the next boom?

Many think that 2018 will be the year of IOTA and its currency MIOTA. To be honest, It blew my mind when I first learned about IOTA: a crypto which in spite of not being based on blockchain, increases transaction speed and does not need either miners or fees? WOW!!!! Can it be real?… Is MIOTA silently eating other cryptos’ lunch?


IOTA is focused on providing secure communications and payments between machines on the Internet of Things. It has a market cap of roughly $14 billion. I first heard about this coin when Bosch corporation acquired a large number of MIOTA tokens in 2017.

                The Internet of things

Iota makes use of distributed ledgers. As I said before, unlike most cryptos, it does not use blockchain. Instead, it uses a technology its developers call the tangle, wich is based on a mathematical concept known as DAG (Directed Acyclic Graph). This design is what distinguishes MIOTA from other cryptos.


IOTA does not need miners, so there are no fees either. IOTA is 100% free to use, but it is still decentralised. Everybody plays an equal role in the network. Any time a transaction is made, the issuer must help authenticate to prevuious and also random transactions. It uses a series of cryptographic algorithms along with many other sophisticated techniques to do this work. Any device can manage it without too much effort.

A network like IOTA supports and facilitates a machine to machine economy and allows for two important features: microtransactions and speed (TSS, Transactions per Second). The more people that use the network the faster it becomes. That’s why, in the near future,  I dare say IOTA has good chances to become the underlying protocol behind the next revolution: the internet of things.

If you are interested in getting some MIOTA you can get them on  Binance. Please note that you must buy MIOTA with ETH or BTC, so you will need to transfer them from another exchange or wallet.

New Year’s Eve Quotes

I thank you all for following Financial Translator throughout the year with some New year’s Eve quotes. May you be blessed enough to spend this new year with your family, friends and loved ones. Be grateful and you will have only good things come your way. Happy New Year 2018!


Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man. Benjamin Franklin.


If you asked me for my New Year Resolution, it would be to find out who I am. Cyril Cusack.


My New Year’s resolution is to stick to a good workout plan that will keep me healthy and happy. James Lafferty.


Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties. Helen Keller.


And now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been. Rainer Maria Rilke.


The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals. Melody Beattie.

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something. Neil Gaiman.


Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, ‘It will be happier.’ Alfred Lord Tennyson.


Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.”

Oxford Dictionaries’ 2017 Word of the Year

“Youthquake”: Oxford Dictionaries’ 2017 Word of the Year

After 2015’s Tears of joy emoji and 2016’s post-truth, “Youthquake” — defined as “a significant cultural, political or social change arising from the actions or influence of young people” — takes the title this year.

Casper Grathwohl, The President of Oxford Dictionarie explains why he’s particularly happy about this year’s choice in a post:

“We chose youthquake based on its evidence and linguistic interest. But most importantly for me, at a time when our language is reflecting our deepening unrest and exhausted nerves, it is a rare political word that sounds a hopeful note. Sometimes you pick a word as the word of the year because you recognise that it has arrived, but other times you pick one that is knocking at the door and you want to help usher in … I think this past year calls for a word we can all rally behind.”

The word itself is not exactly the latest trend in neologisms; in fact, it is  almost 50 years old and it was already listed in Oxford Dictionaries.  It was first coined in the 1960s by Vogue editor Diana Vreeland to describe how British youth were changing music and fashion around the world.

Other terms such as Antifa —militant opposition to fascism—, Broflake —a man who is readily upset or offended by progressive attitudes that conflict with his more conventional or conservative views—or Milkshake Duck —a person or thing that initially inspires delight on social media but is soon revealed to have a distasteful or repugnant past— also made it onto Oxfor Dictionarie’s Word of the Year shortlist.

How to buy Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and Litecoin

Coinbase: The easy way to get started with Cryptos (BTC, BCH, ETH, LTC)

If you are reading this, you are probably interested in getting your first cryptocurrencies. You have surely heard of Bitcoin and maybe Ethereum… Perhaps Blockchain rings a bell with you. So now you are wondering how to get your first cryptos.

First of all, you should know you can buy cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ether, Litecoin, Iotacoin, Dash… either from exchanges, through mining or directly from other people via marketplaces. In any case, I would advise you not to invest more than you can afford to lose (say, 5% of your income), so that you don’t stay out of the blockchain and cryptos revolution but you properly manage risk in a highly volatile market.

Today I will explain how to get started the easy way, so let’s cut to the chase:

If you are new to cryptos, I reccommend you to get started on Coinbase, since it is probably the most intuitive and easy to understand platform. Coinbase is the world’s most popular way to buy and sell Bitcoin (BTC), Ether (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and very soon Bitcoin Cash (BCH). Coinbase is a digital wallet where you can easily and securely buy and use cryptos.

¿Por qué sube tanto Litecoin?

Litecoin (LTC), las razones detrás de su espectacular subida

En un mes ha subido un 536,16%, y en sólo 24 horas, un 113%.

Pero ¿qué es Litecoin?

Litecoin (LTC) se podría traducir por “moneda ligera” y es una altcoin* que surgió como fork** de la archiconocida Bitcoin.

*Se denomina altcoin a cualquier criptodivisa que no sea Bitcoin. **Un FORK (o bifurcación), en el ámbito del desarrollo de software, es la creación de un proyecto (en este caso una criptodivisa) en una dirección distinta de la principal u oficial tomando el código fuente del proyecto ya existente (en el caso de Litecoin, tomó el código fuente de Bitcoin).

Litecoin, fundada por Charlie Lee y su equipo de desarrolladores, fue lanzada el 7 de octubre de 2011. Su aportación más significativa es que sólo necesita 2,5 minutos para generar un bloque (Bitcoin emplea 10 minutos). Aunque puede que esta característica no sea muy relevante para los traders, sí lo es para los mineros***, ya que para las grandes “cuencas mineras” (como me gusta llamar a los grandes conglomerados de minería que abundan en lugares tan dispares como China y Siberia) no resulta tan interesante explotarla al no precisar equipos tan sofisticados. Para no extenderme demasiado en conceptos técnicos, diremos que ello juega a favor de su descentralización (y, por consiguiente, la hace menos vulnerable a la manipulación por parte de un número limitado de mineros).

*** La minería es el proceso mediante el cual se verifican las transacciones de una criptodivisa y se añaden al libro contable público (en inglés, ledger), conocido como blockchain.  También se refiere al mecanismo mediante el cual se emiten nuevas criptomonedas. 

Además, los bloques de Litecoin son más grandes y tiene más monedas en circulación comparados con Bitcoin, lo que resulta en unas transacciones más ágiles. Para entendernos, Litecoin es como una Bitcoin mejorada o evolucionada.

Litecoin es también una apuesta importante de Coinbase, la primera casa de cambio a nivel mundial. Algunos dicen que podría convertirse en la moneda de intercambio digital por excelencia. No está de más decir que fue la primera criptomoneda basada en Scrypt.

Siendo un fork de Bitcoin, es probable que, por puro mimetismo, su cotización siga al alza.  El lanzamiento de futuros de Bitcoins en CBOE, la Bolsa de Chicago, también puede haber empujado al alza otras criptodivisas, tales como Ether (ETH) y Litecoin (LTC).

Cómo cobrar en Bitcoins

Cómo cobrar tus trabajos en Bitcoins

Nota: Este post explica cómo cobrar en bitcoins (o, lo que es lo mismo, cómo recibir en tu wallet o monedero bitcoins de otro wallet). Si lo que deseas es saber cómo abrir un wallet (que sería el paso previo), clica aquí. Es decir: 1. Abrir un wallet 2. Ya podrás cobrar en bitcoins.

Aunque la mayor parte de trabajos se cobran en dinero fiat (euros, dólares, pesos…), cada vez es más habitual, como recurso adicional, cobrar en criptodivisas. Ello ofrece varias ventajas, como la inmediatez del cobro -sin importar que tu cliente esté en la otra punta del mundo- y las bajas comisiones. De todos modos, aconsejo que eches un vistazo a la legislación sobre criptomonedas en tu país, si es que la hay.

Si ya tienes abierta tu cartera o monedero, ya puedes seguir los siguientes pasos. Explicaré cómo cobrar en bitcoins mediante el exchange coinbase (que es el más conocido y de operativa más fácil).


  1. Ve a “Cuentas” (My accounts)
  2. Asegúrate de seleccionar la cuenta donde quieres cobrar tus bitcoin, Ethereum o Litecoin. Las puedes ver en esta dirección:
  3. Una vez seleccionada la cuenta, clica en Recibir > Mostrar dirección
  4. Envía el código QR al cliente/comprador para que proceda al pago.


Para encontrar tu código o dirección QR usando tu teléfono móvil con la APP de coinbase, haz lo siguiente:

  1. Selecciona la cuenta donde quieres cobrar.
  2. Pulsa el icono del QR en la parte superior derecha y te aparecerá el código QR.
  3. si tienes tu cliente enfrente, permite que  escanee tu código QR para que proceda al pago.
  4. Si el cliente no está contigo, pulsa “copiar dirección” (“Copy address”). La dirección de tu cuenta se habrá copiado a tu portapapeles.
  5. Ahora ya puedes enviar tu cuenta (una cadena alfanumérica) a tu cliente/comprador (a través de email, whatsapp, skype, viber…).

… Ya verás que es realmente fácil y práctico 🙂

Sugerencia interesante: puedes hacer una captura de tu QR para enviarla por email a tus clientes o para que tu audiencia haga aportaciones (lo utilizan desde bloggers a músicos callejeros). Así, sólo tienen que escanear el código QRcon el móvil  y proceder al pago o aportación.

Por ejemplo, éste es el QR de mi cuenta Bitcoin:

Si te ha gustado el post y quieres hacer una aportación, te lo agradezco (y de paso te confirmo que ha llegado). Como ves, si tienes blog, otra idea es poner el código QR en tu blog para aportaciones. Incluso hay músicos callejeros que cobran poniendo su QR impreso en vez de recoger monedas.

Muchas gracias y espero que la publicación te haya resultado práctica.
