We’ve teamed up with Boost Juice Australia and oranged to bring you something fruity. 4 bitcoins and 4 winners in 4 weeks. Every week, there’s a grand prize of 1 Bitcoin up for grabs.
To enter, purchase any Boost Juice in Australia, log on to the Boost Juice app and guesstimate the price of Bitcoin for the following Monday. You can enter as many times as you’d like, but a price can only be guessed once each round. Go bananas. This has left us s-peach-less.
Understanding the risks of any practice in which we trade, invest or spend money in is crucial for financial protection and preservation. This is fundamental to trading responsibly, and applies to any investments you make, not just with cryptocurrency.
There are many ways you can keep your coins safe and secure. As always, we recommend that you research thoroughly before spending, sending, trading and storing your money (in all its forms – fiat and cryptocurrency) anywhere.
Alternative Coins (aka altcoins) are now becoming more common on the cryptocurrency scene. If you’re new to altcoins, then giving this your full attention will clarify more than a few things for your future trading.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve progressively rolled out trading of Ethereum, Ripple and Litecoin to CoinJar.
Adding alternative coins to our exchange has been our most requested feature to date. Thanks to your feedback, we decided not to just add Ripple (which won our Twitter and Facebook poll), but to add Ethereum and Litecoin too.
Given the year Bitcoin has had, it’s no surprise there’s been a whole lot more interest since it first started. Eight years ago, no one even really knew what cryptocurrency was. You can’t avoid someone mentioning Bitcoin at the pub or dare we say it, your family’s annual Christmas BBQ.
We’re proud to bring you a new version of CoinJar Touch! We’ve taken the most requested app features to make using your CoinJar a more seamless digital currency experience. The update is available on the App Store for iOS users. Android users are not far behind and will be receiving the update in the near future.
Many in the Australian digital currency ecosystem were pleasantly surprised when in this year’s Budget the Australian Treasurer announced an effective date for the removal of ‘double GST’ on digital currency transactions. Effective 1 July 2017, the purchase of digital currency will no longer be subject to Australian GST. In effect, this will result in digital currency being given the same GST treatment as money.
The landscape for Bitcoin continues to intrigue and be unpredictable. This is especially true when it comes to Bitcoin transaction confirmation time and fees. We’ve had a lot of feedback over these past months as transactions sometimes have not been as close to instant (~10 mins) as one may have hoped when sending payments over the Bitcoin network. Industry pioneer, Erik Voorhees sums up these points in his excellent blog post.
