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?

 

New this week!

Week 39

Trading cryptocurrencies can look easy, but tripwires are hidden in plain site.

Most retail traders programming algorithms are attempting to mimic how our human brain processes data. It’s easy for you to see the peaks and troughs. Not so easy to program though.

One solution could create a peak and trough computer algorithm using percentage moves off a high and off a low, and most traders thinking like this would backtest to see which percentage works best. Unfortunately for them, if they backtest to find out, they may have just opened Pandora’s box.

Holding cryptocurrency losses isn’t easy, but to earn rewards tomorrow you need vision today.

Cryptocurrency went parabolic in late 2017 as people wanted in at any price. Now the animal instincts have subsided, and prices, for the most part, have returned to their pre-bubble levels, the only question most people want to know is when will cryptocurrencies go back up — not just a 30-60% recovery, but back to all-time highs and higher.

When the cryptocurrency market recovers, will the same group of coins lead the market back up?

Are most cryptocurrency traders streetwise and immune from manipulation?

Most people think they’re streetwise and immune from manipulation, but you don’t have to look too far to realise this might not be true. Are the price moves of some alt-coins signalling a new bull market, or is it just a head fake, drawing in the unprepared?

Week 42

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

A recent article on CNBC reported that 95% of Bitcoin’s volume is faked by unregulated exchanges. According to CoinMarketCap.com, around $8.9 billion of Bitcoin volume took place over the last twenty-four hours, and, if the report carried out by Bitwise is accurate, only $445 million of the volume took place with real trades.

With negative news and weak price action why are corporations and financial institutions still interested in cryptocurrency?

Week 43

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

Imagine walking into a casino. The electronic melody of the machines and busy carpets working together providing perfect conditions for gambling. Maximum confusion — combined with a little excitement. The floor, the same size as a football pitch, is covered in lane after lane of slot machines. If you had to choose a machine to play, how would you choose?
