Dumb FUD, ETC on Coinbase and My Good & Bad of Masternodes

June 12, 2018

I want to rant a bit on some of the dumb FUD that's often circulating, trying to tie specific occurances to price movements. Most recently, the Coinrail hack is what people are blaming for $40 billion of market cap loss, but that's idiotic and my opinion and I'll talk about why. Coinbase made a big move last night adding Ethereum Classic to the platform, causing some people joy and others heartbreak. 

Lastly, let's talk about my recent experiences with masternodes. It's been both good and bad, and I'm extremely weary of the strategy moving forward, but figured I'd give you my thoughts about it all here. Also, please note that I do my best to be transparent while also not influencing other's decisions.

Early Bitcoiners Sold $30 Billion to New Speculators

June 10, 2018

During the retail driven mania of December 2017 to April 2018, early Bitcoin investors (whales, OG's, whatever you want to call them), sold $30 BILLION dollars worth of Bitcoin to speculators, according to research from Chainanalysis. This actually increased the available trading supply of Bitcoin by over 50%, leading to the recent depression of the Bitcoin price, according to ChainAnalysis.

Let's talk about the research a bit further, a recent Ripple class action lawsuit and the general market movements.

BIG News on Fidelity, a Bitcoin ETF Coming (again?!) and Circle Appealing to Regulators

June 6, 2018

Fidelity, a financial institution that oversees over $2 Trillion in assets is rumored to be working on proper custodian services for cryptoassets. This is huge news in my opinion, as a legitimate custodian service for crypto will enable larger investors to gain exposure to the market. Sticking with the big players theme, Van Eck and SolidX are applying for a Bitcoin ETF with a single share worth about $200,000, hoping to comply with SEC feedback.

Trading for Institutional Investors - Interview with Caspian

May 19, 2018

Everyone talks about big institutional investors trading crypto, but right now the platforms for them to do so don't really exist. Today I'm joined by David Wills, COO & Co-founder, Caspian and Gerrit Van Wingerden, CTO & Co-founder, to talk about the tools they're currently building to allow for advanced trading of cryptoassets by institutions.

Big Banks Flip Flop on Crypto & Bearish Sentiment

May 18, 2018

After Jamie Dimon called Bitcoin "a fraud", JP Morgan is evaluating a cryptoasset strategy moving forward. This on the back of Goldman Sachs creating a Bitcoin trading desk, I think will be the start of major banks rushing into crypto to avoid getting left behind by the competition. Let's also have a look at the good old bearish sentiment on Reddit.
