Bitcoin Crash Over, Bitcoin Revolution On

Image
  Welcome to the Bitcoin Revolution where there is never a dull moment. This story contains my newest crypto market update. From DOGE to BTC, here is where I think we are headed in the short term. You all read the headlines about how Elon Musk, the super villain has been meddling in the crypto markets. He keeps pumping DOGE which is not good for the crypto community. People are attracted to Dogecoin because it has a low price and quick gains. Fundamentally, it is not a secure coin compared to Bitcoin and does not have the network effect. Some idiot bought DOGE will his credit card and made money. This is not a smart idea as he could have lost his entire life savings. If I owed DOGE, I would say to sell it and buy BTC to preserve wealth. My mailman just loaded up on DOGE which makes me think it's done. If you don't see the sucker, you are the sucker. Most alt coins don't stay in the Top 10 for long. Musk also posted on Twitter how he thinks Bitcoin is bad for the environment

Crypto Market Update 3

Here is my estimated price target for Bitcoin in the short term ($9,000) - https://www.newsbtc.com/2018/07/29/bitcoin-price-weekly-analysis-btc-usd-could-test-9000/ If you haven’t noticed most cryptos are highly correlated with the movements of Bitcoin right now. So wherever Bitcoin goes, until something changes, I imagine most other cryptos will go. There is an opportunity to margin trade Bitcoin right now. The way it was explained to me is basically, you could buy small cryptos with what is called in equities as high Beta. Or you could just buy a bigger coin with a lower Beta, take on some leverage and goose your returns with lower risk. Keep in mind, margin trading is incredibly risky. This data is thanks to - Sifrdata Some pundits including Tone Vays are still saying that we will be going to $5,000 per Bitcoin before the next full on bull market. Right now, I believe that is false. I think we have a chance to break out and gain some positive momentum right now. I ac

Crypto Market Update 2

I believe the crypto market is going to go down in the short term based on the fact that many ERC-20 tokens could be considered securities. Also, the Ethereum-blockchain size has exceeded 1TB, and yes, it’s an issue. If you couple this with evidence that suggests Ripple’s XRP is a security (based on investor lawsuits), then one could postulate that there is a downward adjustment needed. Here are a few news sources to back up my thoughts: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/surviving-upcoming-erc20-crash-john-gotts/ https://www.coindesk.com/another-investor-lawsuit-claims-xrp-security/ https://hackernoon.com/the-ethereum-blockchain-size-has-exceeded-1tb-and-yes-its-an-issue-2b650b5f4f62

Summer 2018 Crypto Markets: Why This Year Could Be Different

Image
The cryptocurrency market has come roaring back, and if this trend continues, it looks like BTC could be back on its way to 10k in a matter of weeks— a rising tide that will lift other crypto boats. Many who kept the faith during these bearish past few months have pointed out that the cryptocurrency market follows an annual cycle that goes something like this: Things start off strong in January, followed by a significant correction. Bearish trend remains until late spring, giving way to a smaller bullish uptick, followed by a flattening off in the summer months. Starting in September, prices begin to rise again, culminating in a bull market every year in November and December. There are numerous theories as to why this pattern has repeated in recent years, ranging from family discussions of cryptocurrencies at the Thanksgiving table spurring huge November buy-ins across the US, to the Chinese New Year in late winter/early spring, which is associated with sell-offs across Asia by

If Crypto Markets Are Precious Metals

I'm going to take some heat for this post. But I'm going to post it anyways. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) - Platinum Ethereum (ETH) - Diamond Litecoin (LTC) - Silver Bitcoin Legacy - Bronze There are probably some other great examples. Feel free to tweet your ideas to me. https://twitter.com/jaredsc

The Future Of Bitcoin, Ethereum & ICOs

This is a great video which discusses the future of Bitcoin, Ethereum and ICOs. The most interesting part is at the 1 hour mark where Craig Wright explains some of the future technology which will exist in Bitcoin Cash or does already. I was super impressed after watching it and suggest you do the same. 1GB blocks are not the end goal. Block size will get bigger and bigger over time. Hard forks will become the norm, not shunned. According to Craig Wright in the video, hard forks occurred all the time in early days of Bitcoin. The way you determine if new changes to the software will work is by testing. In the end, the market will decide which coin to value the highest not influencers. Economics still works as long as the data sources are not corrupt. Please watch the video. You will be glad you did.
