Why I think it’s better to invest your cryptocurrency

Dear Reader/Follower/Investor,

in this article I will reflect on the difference between being a coin HODLER and joining a legit investment service, and delegate your STEEM.

The hodler, deposits a certain number of coins in his wallet and waits (hodl), or rather hopes, that the price of the currency on which he has invested grows in order to benefit from the relative capital gain.

Unfortunately, it is also possible that the price of the currency on which he or she has invested decreases and in that case a loss would occur.

Let’s take an example with finite numbers, and simple percentages: we will call “John” the hdler for convenience and consider only the case where the price after one year doubles or halves.

Today John deposits on his wallet 1000 coins that he bought at the market price of 1 euro each.

—>total invested 1000 coin = 1000 euro

1.After one year the value of 1 coin is 2 euros (doubled)

—> 1000 x 2 =2000 euro (John has earned 1000 euros)

2.After one year the value of 1 coin is 0.5 euros (halved)

—> 1000 × 0.5 = 500 euro ( John has lost 500 euros)

As can be seen from the above example John’s investment increases or decreases in a way directly proportional to the difference in value that “coin” undergoes.

Now let’s see what happens after a year if the same investment was allocated to a legit investment service with coin delegation, considering that the structure guarantees 48% annual dividend to those who join.

—> total invested 1000 coin = 1000 euro

After 1 year

1000 + 48% = 1480 coin

The value of 1 coin is 2 euros (doubled)

—>1480 × 2 = 2960 euro (John has earned 1960euro)

After one year the value of 1 coin is 0.5 euros (halved)

—>1480 × 0,5 euro = 740 euro (John has lost 260 euro)

As can be understood from this simple example, John, with the same investment in the second case has gained much more than the first case when “coin” has doubled and lost much less when “coin” has halved its value.

This means that joining a legit investment service with coin delegation is a smarter way to hodl, because this system guarantees to increase the profits by 48% more than a normal hodler who invests in steem, and guarantees to amortize by 48% his losses compared to the usual hodler who invests on steem on an annual basis.

If we wanted to make the same investment for several years, the advantage would obviously increase, but I leave this simple multiplication to you.

Explanation of “BITCOIN TWITTER Sentiment Analysis” Automatic posts

Dear Readers/Followers/Investors.

With this short article I hope to be able to give some clarifications about the “BITCOIN TWITTER Sentiment Analysis” automatic posts that we publish every day both here, and on steemit.com.

I use a lot twitter, and in particular crypto twitter, actually I use twitter just to get cryptocurrency related posts, and infos, and nothing more.


Because of my programming background, and my recent work with artificial intelligence, I started to be interested in building a classifier (a database to train A.I.) to perform a sentiment analysis on the daily posts about crypto, and BITCOIN in particular.

I thought this could be interesting to get some “hidden” information, otherwise invisible at first glance.

In order to do so I proceeded as follow:

  • Code a program to extract all the posts (or the majority of them) with the keyword BITCOIN and save them on a local database.
  • Once a certain number of entries have been reached, manually categorize them into SPAM, and GOOD tweets.
  • Code an AI predictor trained on the previously manually created classifier.
  • Once the predictor reached an acceptable level of accuracy, I upgraded the AI code to include the paralleldots.com sentiment analysis API.
  • After that, every new tweet posted, get saved, and analyzed by my codes, and classified as SPAM or GOOD, and the GOOD ones get analyzed and divided by sentiment, than stored in my databse.

With all of these data properly classified, I’ve been able to code another program to create 3 different plots, extract the most used keywords, and from these information create the unique content, updated every 6 hours, that gives to you, we think, the useful information about the current sentiments around cryptocurrencies.

Information that are useful, in my opinion, to help a careful observer to create a better vision around what is going on, and what potentially could happen, in the crypto community.

Dear Reader,Follower, Investor

I would like to write a short piece about the steem power delegation, one of the best function, at least for me, that we can enjoy by using the STEEM blockchain.

Many people get into crypto for the technology behind it. This new revolutionary tech that can potentially change the world for good, at least from the crypto nerds point of view, and give back the freedom to the people by putting back the money directly into their control.

No middle man, no bank, no central government are required for cryptocurrency to work! A permissionless, decentralized, and, at least talking about BITCOIN, a secure, really global payment network, and a digital gold store of value.

In addition to what said above, the crypto are programmable money, based on a true consensus mechanism. The monetary policy is hard coded, and decided by the participants of the network, and it is immutable. Just if new consensus is reached it’s possible to hard fork, and change the rules, but it is a very long and difficult process, as we witness with the BITCOIN and BCASH situation.

Said so, it is impossible to ignore that many people get into crypto because of the INVESTMENT opportunity!
Even now during this terrific bear market, many are looking into an investment opportunity for an asset class that rised more than 3000% in less than 6 years!!!

But how can you stay safe and invest with confidence in an environment with no regulations, no middleman and completely decentralized?
How can you give your trust and invest, where the operator can be wherever in the world, and once you trusted to him or she your money there is no institution that can revert the transaction once confirmed in the blockchain.
Today, for me the answer is obvious: it is impossible, but I learned it the hard way, like the majority of us unfortunately!

I got in crypto in late 2013, and it became a mania in late 2014!
I invested, I borrowed, and I got scammed, than I decided not to risk a single satoshi anymore!
I’ve been scammed by ltcgear.com and scrypt.cc, and somebody on btcjam.com didn’t repay the loan I contribute to fund

It looks like ages ago, but it was just 3 years ago, when I lost something like 8 BTC, not a big deal back than, lesson learned I thought.

During the years, thousands of PONZI and scams of all sorts rised and collapsed stealing millions of COINS from people not expert enough.

Many projects are simply labeled as SCAM, even if they could be legit, but HOW CAN YOU TRUST in a TRUSTLESS environment like cryptocurrencies?


It was something I was waiting for a while already, both as an investor, and as a project operator. Now I can invest simply if I like the project without having the trouble of TRUST or KNOW the operator, and I can develop my own project without the fear of being labeled as SCAMMER and trash my reputation online!

I can delegate my steem power, so my MONEY, getting a profit, and if the project doesn’t fulfill my expectations, I can get back my money with no issue at all with simply a click.
The operator can not stop me from getting my money back, or move them elsewhere or whatever, he or she can just operate the project as promised and use my delegated SP to power it, as long as I keep the delegation on.

At the same time I can propose to the public my project, and no one can accuse me to run a PONZI, because you simply do not trust your coins to me!

This is a huge step forward in crypto environment, something that this industry needed a lot.

Already many fantastic projects have been developed on top of steem blockchain, this website is a huge example, but I hope to see thousand of small, and medium size projects rise and thrive here, giving back the possibility for smart people, even alone, even from their room, with just their talent to develop their own ideas, to rise money and sustain themselves in a clean SCAM free and profitable environment.

Explanation of “BITCOIN-EURO Historical peformance” automatic posts

Dear Followers/Readers/Investors,

With this post I would like to explain, with a bit more details, how the posts of the group “BITCOIN-EURO Historical peformance” are created.

These contents are automatically produced by a program, written in PYTHON, and coded by me. So the text and the plot image are hard coded, and thanks to kraken.com API, the program takes the data from their updated database, and compile then in order to create a new content every time.

The data are referred to the BITCOIN-EURO pair traded at KRAKEN.COM since 2013, the year they went online, and we would like to show how the BITCOIN price evolved during the time until now.
Each post randomly takes a number among 10, 100 and 1000 EURO in order to show the numbers of an hypothetical investments, and its trand, with gaining percentages, divided by periods of time.

The post finish by showing the current order book status, a data we think could help to predict how the BITCOIN price will move.

This contents are created every 6 hours, and are posted bo th on steemit, and in one of my network blog.

The  Idea is to create, acceptable quality contents, and see how they will be accepted by the public.

This group of posts is currently together with “BITCOIN TWITTER Sentiment Analysis”,in our DATA group, it means that the contents are based solely on data and their trend, and at today is the only active group of our project.

Sentiment Analysis bug fixed 15/11/2018

Dear Follower/Readers/Invesotrs ,

I’ve noticed an issue with my Sentiment analysis A.I. code.

Because I typo a couple of lines it was able to recognize just two sentiments: HAPPY, and SAD.

The program didn’t terminate with the mistake because I forced it to ignore minor issues in order to work in an infinite loop.

Now the lines have been corrected, and the program started already to work as planned.

Thanks for your attention.

Status of the network 11/11/2018

Hello dear Followers/Readers/Visitors/Investors,

I would like to write a short post about the progress of this project during the last few weeks.

Still the network is extremely small, and we have practically no traffic, but finally we are able to see the first, small, results of our work!

Even if the traffic is close to zero, our bounce rate is not bad, the visitors spend at least 2 minutes on our sites, and visit more than 1 page per visit, this means that they are interested, and curious about this project.

Finally we have started to post regularly on one of our blog (bitcoin.digitalmine.tk), we are satisfied with the quality of the automated posts, and we are working to code more automated post solutions for that specific blog. For now we are posting there once every 6 hours, but next week we are confident we will be able to post once every 3 hours with 2 different posts templates.

For now the posts are DATA analysis of BITCOIN historical TRADE data for the pair BTC-EURO, and the new ones are SENTIMENTS analysis on BITCOIN related TWEETS.

Due to the fact that we are cryptocurrency lovers, we started to shares our posts on the STEEM blockchain via STEEMIT as well. This is our steem account: https://steemit.com/@digital.mine , our account has a small amount invested, that allow us to play around the blockchain, and to have a very small return on our posts there.

That’s all for today!

Thanks for reading, and in case you wish to contact us here the links:


Status of the network 28/10/2018

Dear Followers, and readers,

I would like to write a short post about the current status of this project, and  my plans for the future.

As today 28/10/2018, Just this website, and one blog (italy.digitalmine.tk) are online, and just this one is currently active.
I’m still working on the A.I. ,  and as today it is not able to create an acceptable quality text for our blogs, so we need to be a bit patient and keep working on the code until we will reach a minimum quality for our contents.
I’m quite confident that the results will arrive soon !

Meanwhile, I started to work on a side, but very important part of this project, the social network presence.
At the beginning no one knows about us, and in order to spread the voice to the world, and let the people knowledge that we exist, I decided to use my coding skills, and to start a social network campaign.
I coded few bots that are working mainly on Twitter, and less on Insagram and Facebook. The idea is to get as more follower as possible without using a payable ads campaign but just my software. So far the results are acceptable, in 3 days, since when I first launch the Twitter bot, I got 44 new followers.

I’m also excited that I earned the first 18 Satoshis with A-ADS! Taking into consideration that there are no contents and traffic, this is a good result.

Thanks for reading 😉

Why .tk Domain

We have decided to register our website with .tk domain for a couple of reasons I’m going to expose here for your reference.

.tk is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Tokelau, a territory of New Zealand located in the South Pacific.
This place is literally amazing, and so unique in the world that when we saw the photos the first time we fell in love, and we decided that to have some sort of link to this place would have been good for us.

The island of Tokelau

The Ocean and the internal Sea

A real paradise on Earth

In addition to the fact that this place is a real paradise on earth, once we had to register our name the only combination available at our host provider where .website, .space, .club, solutions that we didn’t like.

So we surfed the internet, and we found out this domain, our name was available, and we really liked the two letters ending, both for simplicity, and for the nice sound.
the domain was free, and we didn’t have to give our credit cards
credential to another website other than our host provider, so we
thought it was the best solution for our domain name.
