Time for Some Bob Dylan to Start the Day

June 4th, 2019|

A little "Simple Twist of Fate". For months, POTUS railed against Fed chairman Jay Powell telling him not only was his committee's idea to raise rates 3-4 times in 2019 a preposterous, ludicrous, horrible bad idea but also he should do the exact opposite & cut interest rates by [Read more]

People Are Panicking

June 3rd, 2019|

They're dumping anything risky for safety. It's getting unruly & dangerous. And it may only be just the beginning. No, I'm not talking about this somewhat pedestrian crypto selloff. This drop to $8k is nothing. Look at stocks & bonds. It's teetering on sheer lunacy. US bonds are going [Read more]

Crypto Market Retracing

June 3rd, 2019|

The crypto market slowly fell apart this afternoon as recent repeated attempts to break through $9k have failed. Virtually every Top 50 coin is lower tonight - most down 5-10% or more - except for a few isolated coins. Bitcoin SV & Cosmos are the only two major coins [Read more]

Price Action and Adoption

June 3rd, 2019|

One of my connections posed a good question to me this morning: Why do you write about price action daily - isn't that too much. Shouldn't the focus be more on adoption. I think that was the gist of it. Let's examine. Well, first off, I simply enjoy writing. [Read more]

Modest Pullback in Crypto Market

June 3rd, 2019|

A modest pullback to start the week as only 4 of the Top 20 coins are in positive territory - XRP, Bitcoin SV, Cosmos, & Ethereum Classic. There's still a shockingly high correlation between bitcoin & every-coin-in-the-world-not-named-bitcoin so when you see a few coins or tokens swimming up stream, [Read more]

Marketcap Comparisons

Beating Nations Interest Rate

June 2nd, 2019|

The only place you can borrow cheaper than Fed Funds is bitcoin. Fed Funds trade for about 2.38% though the bond market is indicating rates could plunge to 1.75% this year. That's cheap money. But nothing beats free. And you can borrow against btc for zero if you're an [Read more]

Federal Reserve Expectation

June 2nd, 2019|

The Federal Reserve is expected to lower its target Fed Funds rate twice by the end of the year as traditional markets price in a bizarre Tale of Two Cities. Or in this case, economies. By most accounts the US economy is fine. Our cheap money addiction stands in [Read more]

Bitcoin Tiptoeing Higher With $9k in Sight Yet Again

June 2nd, 2019|

We've hit that level twice in recent days only to be firmly and impressively denied access to move beyond that price zone. Maybe 3rd time is a charm. It's been a great year, really, for leading coins but smaller alt-coins continue to languish. This year's "new thing" - the [Read more]

Collision Course With History

June 2nd, 2019|

Nothing beats a big, old European wedding. There are 4 gifts at these types of galas: chocolate, flowers, vodka - and fistfuls of cash. It's like the great scene from "Goodfellas". Karen: "Where's the bag?" Henry: "What bag?" Karen: "The bag with all the money." Henry: "Oh that's safe. [Read more]

TRON Leapfrogging Competition

June 1st, 2019|

TRON jumped over Stellar & Cardano into the Top 10. In terms of global importance, this is nothing. Even in crypto and blockchain it doesn't mean much. But it begs a question when it comes to branding; is branding necessary; is it something that moves the dial; and, if [Read more]

Only Constant is Change

June 1st, 2019|

The world has changed a lot in the 30 years since Tiananmen Square. Or has it. The Soviet Union disappeared six months after this photo was taken; but in a roundabout fashion Russia is still needling its neighbors like it has for centuries. Look at poor Ukraine. China is [Read more]

Kids Won’t Remember Paper Money Eventually

June 1st, 2019|

Phillies in a convincing 26-11 drubbing of the first place & undefeated Cubs. This is a second-half of the season ball club. The 2nd half of the btc year is only 30 days out and few can find complaint with how things have begun. More than anything, confidence went [Read more]

EOS Up in Anticipation

June 1st, 2019|

EOS is screaming higher ahead of a big announcement tomorrow. For months, crypto insiders have speculated Block One, the VC arm of the number 5 coin in the world EOS, would be building a social media platform to incentivize users. This is of note to someone like me - [Read more]

Wrapping up the Crypto Week

May 31st, 2019|

Another crypto week has come nearly to a close, and it was a good one yet again. We had a spectacular rally over Memorial Day weekend last Sunday and the rally kept chugging right along until a hiccup yesterday but things have since stabilized. Cheap money is hard to [Read more]

She’s A Very Brave Woman

May 31st, 2019|

Heading home after a whirlwind Canada trip. One drumbeat being heard louder now is crypto teams hammering home the importance of regulation. There's a lot of talk about "Is XYZ coin a commodity or a security." There's not enough examination over the question of who regulates these trading venues. [Read more]
