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.


“Tonight’s December thirty-first,
Something is about to burst.
The clock is crouching, dark and small,
Like a time bomb in the hall.
Hark, it’s midnight, children dear.
Duck! Here comes another year!”
― Ogden Nash.


“Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.”
― Alfred Tennyson, In Memoriam.


“The New Year is a painting not yet painted; a path not yet stepped on; a wing not yet taken off! Things haven’t happened as yet! Before the clock strikes twelve, remember that you are blessed with the ability to reshape your life!”
― Mehmet Murat ildan


“There is nothing magical about the flip of the calendar, but it represents a clean break, a new hope, and a blank canvas.”
― Jason Soroski


“New year, new blessing, new grace and new opportunities, never allow the failures of the past to rub you of the blessings in the new year.”
― Bamigboye Olurotimi


“Let all the failures of your past year be your best guide in the New Year!”
― Mehmet Murat ildan

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. They take careful measures to ensure that your money is as safe as possible. In addition, if you like, you can get $10 worth of Bitcoin through my referral link for free.

> GET a $10 gift in Bitcoins on Coinbase! CLICK HERE

If you sign up through this referral link and initiate a buy or sell of $100 USD or more , you will receive 10 USD in Bitcoins in your wallet.

How to get your wallet on Coinbase in three easy steps:

  1. SIGN UP: Create a digital currency wallet where you can securely store digital currency (remember that If you initiate a buy or sell of $100 USD or more  you  will receive 10 USD in Bitcoins through this referral link: Click here).
