What if I told you that the Noble Prize laureate and economist Milton Friedman talked about electronic cash back in 1999?

Or how about that? Cypherpunks have been calling for decentralized and anonymous financial transactions since 1993.

And finally… David Chaum wrote a paper on anonymous electronic money all the way back in 1982.

So when it comes to the world of cryptocurrencies, there’s a lot going on in the background that most of us are unaware of. Many conversations are had and decisions made behind the curtain by influential individuals and organisations long before the general public is aware.

And among all this commotion, one crypto company stands out – Ripple. It is a skillful player in the world of politics, having established strong wide-spread relationships with the most powerful decision-makers and thought-leaders. This is surely to be a key pillar of Ripple’s success.

Oh, and what if I told you that Ripple was older than Bitcoin?

in CRYPTOCURRENCY NEWS/INVESTING IN CRYPTOCURRENCIES/TRADING CRYPTOCURRENCIES

ALGOs that model/predict future price selling/buying pressure in TIME, RANGE and ENERGY. Suggest a likely Black Christmas, as the modeling of institutions own buy/sell programs and have likely triggered to a large degree, of which selling from Sept 9th to Jan 7th… These advanced ALGOs are used in highly liquid markets such as the Dow/S&P 500/Euro and have a high probability due to the ARC = Energy numbers being fairly high. Boxing out = expecting the full range within the given time, denoted by the geometry of the box in the above chart. Many elements here indicate further price declines in the U.S. equities market going forward, so what possible effect will this have on Bitcoin? Keep Reading

ETF AND BAKKT
ETF AND BAKKT

Crypto embraces many youngsters and often shows up as the first touchpoint to individuals when it comes to trading and the world of finance. Yeah, there wasn’t a more hip thing than to own Bitcoin Dec ’17 and even the price dropped like a rock – the young generation is yet mesmerized by cryptocurrencies. Understandable that many questions arise – many see themselves deep in a rabbit hole. When it comes to Hopium, the Bitcoin ETF approval is still #1 on the list, which is considered as a catalyst to make the price great again. But once you start your research engine, you will discover critical voices, denying that these kinds of ETFs will be good for the crypto economy  – those often see BAKKT as the holy grail to recover the invested college funds. Let’s break these two down for you and check what they are and how they differ from each other.

Hodl That! ALQO (XLQ)

Long time no see for our HODL THAT! series – the markets have been just too dangerous to get into any altcoins, but slowly we can see a bottom and stagger back into our Gem positions. One of them is a true rough diamond we kept secret until now.  To some, it is well-known for their rewarding Masternodes, others – more tech-sided crypto enthusiasts -get a hard-on for the rock-solid robust and real democratic and decentralized network behind the project. Ladies and Gentlemen, we fill some bags – (and soon run even masternodes) with $XLQ – the coin of the ALQO project from Germany/Switzerland. Take a look at the awesome tech with us:  Keep Reading

ICO REKT “Sh*t coins, that are not even worth Sh*t…”

in INVESTING IN CRYPTOCURRENCIES
ICO Sh*t Coins
Don't even own Sh*t!

In short ICOs are REKT… Period end of story… How did we get here? What can we do to FIX IT? I have spent the past month doing a deep dive into many different matrices of ICO prices/holdings along with how the ICO companies are progressing with their plans… In doing so I am left disgusted and dismayed of the pure greed and absolute fraud-ridden landscape that makes up our current ICO space. Many ICOs were nothing more than money grabs by greedy well-spoken liars. Hence with the realization the downward one-way ticket to ride of many of the ERC-20 Tokens, along with the magic unicorn Ethereum that shat out these magic poop coins. Smart contracts? For who? Smart for the ICO teams/sellers who raised the funds maybe, but not for the investors/hodlers of the tokens. The majority of these ICO companies will slowly sell their ETH at some point going forward and simply fold/vanish/disappear. Only a very minor few will survive the ICO apocalypse as each of them turns into the living dead… Etherum is a poisoned well of this coming ICO apocalypse IMO. I will share with you below my thoughts findings and a solution to pull Ethereum back to shining star status, btw if you are an anonymity nut, well phuck off this article is not for you. Privacy is one thing, but anonymity is the calling card of criminals/thieves in business/money. Keep Reading

The Unshakeable Bitmex Investment Strategy: Catch The Bottom And Let It Ride

in INVESTING IN CRYPTOCURRENCIES

Yes, we ‘mex a lot these days – the current charts are a day traders wet dream, however, an educated guess makes us feel 95% on Bitmex are just losing their Bitcoin before it goes parabolic and leaves the past all-time high of 20k behind with a smile of ease. One of the main reasons, why Bitmex breaks the neck of so many noobie traders, is that they are trying to catch the bottom. Catching the bottom with a juicy 25x leverage and let it run to 50k – isn’t it that, what the most traders over there are daydreaming about? Well, we developed a strategy which could make this (almost) possible – ok, better a with 5x  leverage though, better safe than sorry. Do you want to know more about it? Yes? It is easy and you don’t even really need more than the basics of technical analysis & math.  But the big question is, if the psyche of one allows executing this strategy – flawless, patiently and without emotions like a robot trader. This strategy is far away from scalping or day trading. Much more we will use Bitmex as an investment vehicle to catch a position near the bottom and let it ride all the way up. This is an experiment we will try out solely for educational purposes, of course.

Could Cryptocurrency Replace Fiat Currencies?

Could Cryptocurrency Replace Fiat Currencies?
Could Cryptocurrency Replace Fiat Currencies?

The biggest difference between cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and fiat currencies issued by central banks is that the former is a decentralized digital currency not at the mercy of any government or central bank, but at the same time highly volatile with an ad hoc value. The latter, in comparison, is a centralized currency with its value backed by the government that issued it. Due to the decentralized and deregulated nature of cryptocurrencies, Morocco have outright banned them. So, are cryptocurrencies a viable alternative to fiat currencies?

When cryptocurrencies first emerged, Bitcoin had an unquestionable advantage. However, more recently a host of altcoins have emerged that are starting to threaten its dominance. Futurism calls this phenomenon “the flippening,” – when one digital currency supersedes another. Whichever ends up on top, a future dominated by cryptocurrencies has some advantages; crypto values cannot be manipulated nearly as easily as fiat currencies, and can better support the concept of universal basic income (UBI). This is mainly due to its symbolism of being a “free” currency not backed by any government and, therefore, seen as enacting liberation in line with UBI.

Cryptocurrencies also have the potential to eliminate intermediaries who take huge cuts in online transactions such as foreign exchange (Forex). FXCM describes Forex as a decentralized global market where every currency in the world is traded. The chain which makes up the independent trade mechanism of the Forex systems, like accountants, repositories and clearing houses, to name a few, each collect fees in the Forex market. By replacing fiat currency, cryptocurrencies could remove these fees and provide a transparent and decentralized Forex market.

Yet, the biggest issue with cryptocurrencies at this point is adoption. All digital currencies, even Bitcoin, are still in their infancy. Supporters note that the argument is much like the internet in the 1990s; only select computer savvy people used it until it caught on and evolved very quickly to change the world. When cryptocurrencies see wider use and adoption, everyone will again be jumping on the bandwagon. The problem, however, is that while at one point we saw many businesses offer to accept cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin after its massive upwards surge, this trend has steadily dwindled of late. Investopedia notes that there is a growing skepticism about its use as a medium of exchange.

If, and when, the time comes when adoption increases to such a level where cryptocurrencies outpace fiat currencies in terms of usage, infrastructure would need to be developed to support it. Governments and central banks are already seeing the significance of cryptocurrencies, and are creating their own, backed not by user sentiment but by a centralized institution. Even the European Parliament have decided that the adoption of bank-developed cryptocurrencies could be a viable alternative to fiat money. With the growing numbers of financial technology platforms such as digital banking, Forex and others, we might see a day when cryptocurrencies, albeit in a different form than today, replace fiat currencies.

When Bull Market? This Might Be The Real Reason Why Bears Took Over

What's the reason for the Bear Market?

This might become a short post actually as it features just an idea. Many people are still puzzled about the bear market and why it just not seems to find its end. Crypto is the future, right? Why does it not reflect in the market prices and will ETF’s bring the money back into the game or will they work against the goals of crypto, like Andreas M. Antonopoulos thinks? This actually correlates with why I think smart money might (temporarily) moved out.   Keep Reading
