What Is Bitcoin?

As the first decentralized digital currency, Bitcoin stands tall as being the original cryptocurrency. This means that it doesn’t have the need for a central bank or single administrator. And with all the problems that banks have been going through in recent years, isn’t this totally appealing!?
Of course, anything that strays away from the norm will make us hesitant to become a part. We’re only human, after all! Such worries have led many to question the safety of both purchasing and using Bitcoin online. After all, without a bank or centralized foundation, where do you turn if things go wrong? Plus, how is the volatility of the Bitcoin cryptocurrency managed?

Needless to say, Bitcoin is still the number-one cryptocurrency, and if you manage to get your hands on some, you can use it for a number of different activities. And even though there have been several negative press stories over the years since its arrival, the fact remains that Bitcoin is still a lot more secure than many other financial systems.

With over ten thousand computers keeping track of the Bitcoin ledger and validating the cryptocurrency transactions on the network, it’s hugely different from the standard storage of data relating to traditional finance. Hackers? With more than ten thousand nodes keeping things running, hacking into Bitcoin’s decentralized system is akin to stealing the Crown Jewels – pretty much impossible!

One other feature that keeps things nice and safe with Bitcoin is that it works anonymously. Therefore, you as the user do not need to attach any of your personal details to a Bitcoin transaction. Your private details won’t be linked with your Bitcoin wallet, meaning that it’s also virtually impossibly for you to suffer from identity theft. So, don’t expect to find someone masquerading as you if they manage to get a hold of your Bitcoin wallet key!

NBA Playoff Odds, Preview, and Predictions for April 27, 2018

After epic performances by LeBron James and Russell Westbrook in Game 5 of their respective best-of-seven first-round series, their teams enter April 27th with different goals in mind.

LeBron James’ spectacular game-saving block and game-winning three-pointer on Wednesday gave the Cleveland Cavaliers their first lead of their first-round series at 3-2. The Cavs hope to get an encore from King James on Friday as they try to eliminate the Indiana Pacers in Indiana.

While Cleveland is trying to move on to the next round, the Oklahoma City Thunder are looking to equalize their own best-of-seven first-round series against the Utah Jazz. The Thunder are riding high on Russell Westbrook’s 45-point effort during their Game 5 victory where they overcame a 25-point third-quarter deficit.

Here are the odds, previews, and our predictions for the NBA Playoff games on April 27, 2018.

Cavs at Pacers – Game 6
Cavs +105, Pacers -125)

LeBron James was simply breathtaking in Game 5, doing everything on the court for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Another monster night for the King, another victory for his Cavs. Really, Cleveland’s success in this series isn’t hard to decode. It’s just two words: King James.

James has scored at least 32 points in his team’s three victories, averaging 40.67 points per game in those games. Meanwhile, he’s averaged just 26 points per game in Cleveland’s two losses to Indiana this series. Save for Game 1, James’ FG attempts have almost been the same in the last four games. The only difference is that he’s shot above 54.5% during victories but not more than 45.5%.

Victor Oladipo’s playoff average is 3 points off his regular-season scoring average. That’s not too bad. But what is worrying is that Oladipo’s point output has steadily decreased from game to game: 32 to 22 to 18 to 17 to 12. Like James in Cleveland, Indiana’s regular-season success was because of Oladipo flourishing in their offense. If they want to see a Game 7, Oladipo has to pick up the pace. It’s now or never for the Pacers.

Both teams have won once each in the other team’s home court, so that won’t be too much of a factor in Game 6, as it hasn’t been all series long. Save for the Game 1 blowout, the average winning margin in this series (Games 2-5) has only been just four points, with Games 2, 3, and 5 decided by just one possession.

The Cavs and LeBron have the momentum here, but given how close the series has been despite LeBron’s superhuman effort, the Pacers aren’t goners yet. He may be the best today, but you can’t expect LeBron to put up the same numbers in Game 6 (or else he’s Superman). Meanwhile, Oladipo is due for an explosion after three straight off nights, and yes, Cleveland is winless in Indiana in four tries dating back to the regular season.
