The role of stablecoins in the next generation of global payment systems.

FinTech banks are disrupting traditional banks, but what if you want to move your money into a cryptocurrency asset? If you sweep your funds into a cryptocurrency account, what cryptocurrency are you going to use to hold your funds?

Is it possible to protect yourself from the extreme levels of volatility in the cryptocurrency market?

What if there was a way where you could move your fiat currency into a cryptocurrency exchange, transferring from US dollars, euros or Japanese yen, to a stable coin equivalent? — a stable coin that is 100% verified, audited, and backed one to one with the underlying currency it represents?

When researching cryptocurrency investment ideas, do you follow the tech or find the problem?

To solve problems using cryptocurrencies, find out the way the real world works. This can be achieved without diving into the technical jargon and without a technical background.

One way to do this is to use your own experience. Has part of your life become more difficult? Has something you do every day changed, not immediately, but gradually, forcing you to spend hours on something that used to take minutes.

Does Facebook’s Libra cryptocurrency forewarn of a soft takeover in the cryptocurrency space?

It’s not about Libra. It’s about legitimacy and what legitimacy infers. It could, for example, help soften India’s stance on cryptocurrencies, and with population of 1.3 billion people, what effect would legalising cryptocurrency in India have on the market?

It’s unknown, but Facebook’s entry into cryptocurrency adds a variable that needs to be priced in. It’s often not the news itself, but the implications of the news that has the most effect.

Recognising a parabolic move in cryptocurrencies can provide traders with several advantages.

Observing three trend lines, each with a higher rate of slope, are tell-tale signatures that, a large percentage of the time, precede a parabolic move. As prices begin to accelerate, and, using daily compounding, the rate of change will have the effect of doubling the price within a week or two, ask yourself what is the likelihood of observing this phenomenological combination if your assumptions are false?

Why does 40% of the global bond market have negative yields, and what’s the implication for cryptocurrencies?

If investors are willing to make a loss by investing in negative-yielding bonds, it suggests they are not insane, but rather they would prefer a known small loss by entrusting capital to the world’s leading governments, instead of holding positions in global equity markets.

If money flows out of stocks, negative returns from bonds could also make non-yielding investments like gold more attractive. And, like gold, could some of the global money flow find its way into Bitcoin?
