So, what is a blockchain? Not sure? You’ve come to the right place.

 

Listen to the weekly altcoinsidekick.com podcast, and you’ll understand the game and what the cryptocurrency business is really all about. We discuss cryptocurrency and blockchains— what they are, how they work and the players behind the technology.

 
 

001 What is Money

The Rise of Bitcoin: How governments have confiscated their citizen's wealth and devalued their savings.

Throughout history, countries have had to decide between feeding the people or protecting them. But there’s another war being waged in the background. A hidden war. A financial war. And not one in 100,000 realises it’s happening.

And if you understand why it’s happening, how it’s related to the release of Bitcoin in 2009 and the technology that powers it, and why governments around the world scrambled to shut down the gates in 2017, it will give you an edge in understanding the problem a new coin or token is attempting to solve.

002 Games Without Frontiers

The 3 big social changes that may be the catalyst for blockchain mass adoption.

In a week where the UK and Europe had an unprecedented interruption of the Visa network, leaving millions stranded at checkouts, and Google announcing a ban all cryptocurrency related advertising, we discuss why 2018 is the perfect environment for the mass adoption and roll out of blockchain technology.

003 Money Without Borders

The link between Bitcoin prices and central banking, and why governments need to control the movement of capital across borders.

Sometimes, it takes time for great ideas to become a reality, we have to wait for a catalyst. Nations are self-determining their economic policies, and this could be the trigger for the mass adoption of blockchains. Cryptocurrencies democratise asset management, and governments can’t allow it to happen— (without them.) The reaction of governments to cryptocurrencies is a huge “tell” for the future of blockchain technology. And do blockchains have a dark side? How the upcoming paradigm shift in data storage and protection will solve one problem, but may, in reality, deliver another.


004 The Bitcoin Hash Rate Tell

The tactics used by the establishment to ban or restrict money flows into cryptocurrencies, and what history suggests will happen next.

As the price of Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies continue to go down — have you asked yourself why the Bitcoin hash rate is at all times highs?

And when you are bailing out, and selling do you ever think about this — who is the counter-party? Who’s on the other side doing the buying?

005 Puppet On A String

How cryptocurrency whales use human nature to enter and exit positions.

Anyone who places a wager on a market outcome exposes themselves to built-in natural biases and behaviour patterns.From cryptocurrencies to real estate, prices move through a cycle of accumulation and distribution.

How prices move and your built-in behaviour patterns are closely related. If you’ve ever bought an asset when all around you are doing the same, you’ll know how this feels.

006 The Hidden Hand

Cryptocurrency pro’s hide their buy and selling processes in plain site, and why the crowd almost always gets it wrong.

Do the right thing. Be right, study hard, work hard, get the best grades, go to the best schools, win the race, kick the goal, score the touchdown, hit the home run.

It’s competitive and exhausting…


007 ELECTRONIC COCAINE

Uncovered: The psychological glitch that’s the barrier to consistent returns.

Prices transition between trends in phases. And knowing what phase you are in can help you manage your emotions.

It works like this…

Down Trend — Emotion Bar — Accumulation — Base — Break out — Up Trend — Emotion Bar — Distribution — Break down —

And the cycle begins again.

All hidden in plain sight.

Conventional market dogma says markets are essentially random because they are efficient.

But they don’t factor-in the math of emotions and assume market participants act rationally at all times.

They don’t.

008 Chariots of the Gods

Discover the link that binds the games of luck and financial speculation together, and why it separates the few from the many.

You thought you’d found the perfect vehicle, your chariot of the gods, to help you master the cryptocurrency markets.

If you’ve been frustrated with your results, it’s not because you’ve not found the right transport. It’s because you don’t know how to drive it.

It’s not charts, indicators, and stop losses. This is what the 95% use and this is why they keep crashing.

If you want to get to your destination, it’s edge, position size, and money management. These are the steering wheel, brakes, and clutch of your chariot, and just like learning to drive, it takes time to coordinate how to use them.

009 Shapeshifter

What kept you alive as a caveman will destroy you as a speculator, and how your inbuilt patten recognition software is being manipulated.

What separates the 5% club who generate consistent returns in the cryptocurrency markets from the 95% who don’t?

The 5% club focuses on the size and probability of their losses instead of fantasising about how much they’ll win. 

When you understand your edge, you can begin to use risk management and position sizing to take advantage of the opportunity. When you know how much you’re risking, the size of your position, and the probability of success, you can calculate the probability of going bust— your risk of ruin.

Before you do that, you need to uncover an edge. One of the tools the 5% club uses to let them know they may have hit pay dirt is expectancy.


010 Revolver

Why the cocktail of conditional biases that have protected you throughout your life don’t work so well in the cryptocurrency markets.

Understanding how expectancy works, along with the risk of ruin, is the 5% club’s key to understanding it’s not the market they have to defeat, but themselves.

The voice inside your head, the voice that keeps you safe, is the greatest enemy you will ever face. 

Expectancy is a tool that will help you understand how you behave. It’s your protection against how you react to the internal and external shocks waiting to keep you out of the game. 

Awareness of your behaviour and biases is how you evolve from being inconsistent to becoming the house.

011 Thinking In Threes

The antidote to the big 3 “F’s” — FOMO, FEAR, and FANTASY, that cause the most damage when you speculate in any market.

Success in the cryptocurrencies markets is about timing. You can have a great idea, and you could be proved exactly right over time, but if your timing is off, or you use the wrong trading strategy for the specific situation you’ve uncovered, then you’ll struggle to make a profit.

The Key to being a gatekeeper is being able to drill down and ask the market clearly defined questions. 

And clearly defined questions come from translating the price action into behavioural conditions.

You are looking out for three of them. Thinking in threes.

012 Escape Velocity

Why trusting yourself defines the fine line between success and failure when trading and investing in the cryptocurrency markets.

Trading and investing in cryptocurrency markets has the potential to change your life. It has the potential to give you access to a commodity almost everybody wants, but so few people have. The freedom to live life your way. Beholden to none.

But what can give you freedom, also has the power to destroy you. 
The journey towards self-sufficiency and freedom begins with trust. Trust in the information and trading strategy you have figured out, and not in a tip received on YouTube.

The journey starts with asking the right questions.
