Technology can exist for a while before a mass consumer use is found for it.

 

Do you remember when you purchased your first home computer— and if so what do you use it for? Geeks and accountants drove the early sales, but in 1993— BOOM!  This happened… It was called Mosaic — the first web browser. And you know what happened next. The world tilted on its axis. Did You See It Coming? The killer app, and the catalyst, for the mass adoption and use of home computers, was the Mosaic web browser. We’ll look back in history for clues that could set up, like the Mosaic browser for home computing, the “Killer Apps” for blockchains, the Apps that will bring awareness of blockchains to the public.

Each week we’ll be discussing potential triggers for the mass adoption of blockchain technology. What if the catalyst for the mass adoption and rollout of blockchains has not happened yet?

In a crisis, here are the top ten things that become scarce - fast. Generators, water filters, portable toilets, seasoned firewood, lamp oil, guns, ammunition, knives, and baseball bats. After these items, it is the staples. Can openers, whisks, honey, sugar, rice, beans, and wheat.

As Bitcoin, breaking out above $9,000, hitting the 38.2 fibonacci retracement level, a level watched by technical analysts, is trending up. Are the top-alt coins poised, holding just at their recent highs, to follow Bitcoin higher, and if you want to take a position, with everything going up, how do you make a choice?

Week 54

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

With Facebook's white paper giving an overview of its plans to enter into the cryptocurrency ecosphere with Libra, a scaleable blockchain, capable of running smart contracts and using a stablecoin as the underlying currency, what strategy will Facebook deploy to make money from Libra?

 

Week 55

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

If history is any guide, the majority of cryptocurrencies will not succeed just like stocks listed in the Pink Sheets. So how do you find the coins and tokens with the best chance of making it? How do you avoid being suckered into a cryptocurrency equivalent of AeroTyne Industrial?
