With public interest in cryptocurrencies waning, are big players quietly manoeuvring behind the scenes?

With bad news all around, fake volume, SEC rejection, and the postponement of Bitcoin futures trading, it’s difficult for all but those who think in probability and likelihoods to hold on. As the public loses interest, are the mega-corporations and financial institutions quietly manoeuvring behind the scenes, making ready for the future with a pincer movement?

Is picking tomorrow’s cryptocurrency winners luck or are there tools that can help?

Cryptocurrencies have been described as a solution looking for a problem. Out of the thousands of coins and tokens, how do you pick the future market leaders? Using a heat map is an efficient and effective way to see the big picture from a follow the money price-performance point of view, taking seconds to show Litecoin as the best performer in terms of volume traded and price performance.

As cryptocurrencies move up, is a long term catalyst needed to drive prices higher?

Two paddles applied to the cryptocurrency marketplace kickstarted it into action, but instead of voltage, volume surged through the market lifting all but four of the top 100 coins higher over the last seven days. Is Bitcoin and the rest of the cryptocurrency market, as some headline writers suggest, taking a trip to the moon, or is this week’s move a test launch that’s about to plunge back to earth?

Can cryptocurrencies be used as proxies for the strength of the underlying trend?

Technical analysis can and is used successfully as a short term trigger mechanism, giving clear entry and exit zones, but when attempting to use technical analysis to position yourself into long term trends, trends that will last not for weeks or months but for years, even decades, exclusively using TA will have you at a disadvantage to those who are aware of the drivers of tomorrow’s societal trends.

Can you dramatically reduce overwhelm in the cryptocurrency markets?

Using third-party coin ratings, cryptocurrency indexes and their constituent weightings, and knowing the fundamental difference between a protocol and an algorithm, as well as the three most important functions of a cryptocurrency — security, decentralisation, and scalability, you'll be on your way to building a solid understanding of the cryptocurrency market. No technical background required.

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?
