Crypto Market Jumps Again, Coinbase Custody, EOS Done Liquidating?
Crypto Bobby



Published on Jul 2, 2018
The crypto market jumped once again today, with Bitcoin moving $300 up to $6,600 and most altcoins following. Some folks are attributing the move to the announcement of Coinbase Custody, and while I think it's fantastic news and a positive thing for the industry, I don't think it's directly correlated.

Lastly, EOS, everyone's favorite, moved their last 100,000 ETH from their ICO smart contract, so are they finally done dumping ETH on the market? Let's hope so :)

Coinbase Custody Announcement:

EOS Smart Contract Address:

Bancor Hacked, Augur Going Live and Bobby the VC?
Crypto Bobby


Published on Jul 9, 2018
Bancor, the Decentralized Exchange/Liquidity Network that raised over $150M in an ICO, was hacked today for over $20M in ETH and BNT tokens, again showing the vulnerability of smart contract technology. Augur, which has been in development for 3 years, an eterenity in the crypto world, is going live tonight and I'm excited to see how it pans out!

And lastly, I'm pumped to be supporting the team at CityBlock Capital as an Investment Partner, helping the NYCQ tokenized VC fund to deploy $10 Million in capital to crypto companies alongside CoVenture Crypto.

Bitcoin... Benefit or BitCon?
The Morgan Report


Published on Jul 12, 2018
Bitcoin... Benefit or BitCon? | http://www.themorganreport.com

I have something that I think is of paramount importance, and it's a gentleman I met at the Red Pill Expo just a few weeks ago. Kent had something that he passed out on most of the desks around. I picked it up and when I got home, I read it. The title is called "The Decentralized Cryptocurrency Nightmare". That intrigued me because I was a pretty early adopter, and I did not jump on the Bitcoin bandwagon, even though I was one of the first to know about it, believe it or not.

However, I was tipped off very early by Charles Savoy that did a great deal of research for the Silver Investor website that the NSA had actually put out a whitepaper looking for information about how to decentralize cryptocurrency type of situation. That gave me pause.

About four years ago, I kept getting asked more and more about my take on Bitcoin, and my take was one, I'm for competing currencies. I'm definitely for that. That I wasn't certain about Bitcoin, and if it became very popular, we might see something taking place where government hates competition. After reading this Decentralized Cryptocurrency Nightmare, I thought, man, this is the guy I have to interview. So here you go... enjoy our interview.

The Three Horsemen Of The Bitcoin Apocalypse


by Tyler Durden
Fri, 07/13/2018 - 12:00


Authored by Michael Kern via Crypto Insider,

There’s never a day that passes without some otherwise intelligent economist making radical claims about bitcoin. It’s all been said before. “It has no intrinsic value,” “it’s used by criminals,” “it will be regulated,” “it will fall to $0.”

And media outlets are happy to share these opinions, with doom-and-gloom headlines to add fuel to the fire.



The Three Horsemen of the Bitcoin Apocalypse
On July 10th, Joseph Stiglitz, Nouriel Roubini and Kenneth Rogoff looked to breathe fresh air into their campaign against the cryptocurrency citing once again the lack of intrinsic value, anonymity and regulation. They even offered a shocking 10-year price prediction - $100.

In the interview with Financial News, Nobel-Prize winning Stiglitz noted: “You cannot have a means of payment that is based on secrecy when you’re trying to create a transparent banking system."

While the irony may be palatable for many in the crypto-community, it’s not as though Stiglitz is completely clueless in the world of policy or economics. Though he has taken a controversial stance on many issues, from globalization to the Eurozone, he has at least expressed respectable and well researched opinions on these matters.

In the case of bitcoin, however, his one-liners and extreme positions based on his perceived understanding of how the cryptocurrency functions leave a lot to be desired.

“If you open up a hole like bitcoin, then all the nefarious activity will go through that hole, and no government can allow that,” Stiglitz said.

Joining Stiglitz in the interview, Kenneth Rogoff, former chief economist at the International Monetary Fund, explained: “Bitcoin could easily be worth just $100 in 10 years,” adding “People in power will move to regulate anonymous transactions. That you can be sure of.”

It’s worth noting, however, that the idea of bitcoin being used primarily in illegal activity has been debunked time and time again.

The simple fact is: bitcoin is no longer as anonymous as these economists might believe. In fact, with strict KYC/AML regulations in place in most international exchanges and blockchain analysis companies such as Chainalysis and BlockSeer, bitcoin may now be easier to trace than cash.

The third Horseman in the interview, however, Nouriel Roubini, the man that predicted the 2008 crisis, went straight for the kill – attacking bitcoin as a currency.

The notoriously bearish “Dr. Doom,” as Roubini is sometimes called, explained: “For bitcoin to be a currency it has to be a unit of account, a means of payment, and a stable store of value. It is none of these. Bitcoin is not even accepted at bitcoin conferences, and how can something that falls 20% one day and then rises 20% the next be a stable store of value?”

Bitcoin’s 10-year plan
Arguing against Roubini’s point, a research paper published by Imperial College London, one of the top 10 universities in the world, claims that bitcoin or another cryptocurrency could become a mainstream payment option worldwide within the next decade.

Imperial professor William Knottenbelt wrote: "There's a lot of scepticism over cryptocurrencies and how they could ever become a day-today payment system used by the man on the street. In this research we show that cryptocurrencies have already made significant headway towards fulfilling the criteria for becoming a widely accepted method of payment."

In the paper, “Cryptocurrencies: Overcoming Barriers to Trust and Adoption”, a number of topics are covered, from the evolution of money to the challenges bitcoin will need to overcome in its path to mainstream adoption.

The report addresses bitcoin as a currency, suggesting that it is well on its way to meeting the criteria to be accepted as money, though challenges remain.


(Click to enlarge)

Though the study does echo similar sentiments put forth by Siglitz, Roubini and Rogoff, it takes a more sober approach to the future of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The paper even highlights some of the developments such as the Lightning Network and atomic swaps that aim to tackle scalability and more.

In the conclusion of the report, Knottenbelt notes: “Some cryptocurrencies are beginning to satisfy these functions; however, we find that there are technical, legal, economic and social challenges currently restricting the degree to which cryptocurrencies are fulfilling the three traditional functions of money.”

For the sake of transparency, it is important to point out that the report was commissioned by eToro.

Wrap Up
Though observations and predictions in the space are inevitable, and many times, reasonable, there is always a bit more to say. Though Siglitz, Roubini and Rogoff present valuable criticisms of bitcoin as a currency, the outright dismissal of it without acknowledging its potential may prove to be a mistake in the future.

And while their interview was syndicated with a $100 price prediction in the title, Knottenbelt’s was also misrepresented, as many of the titles surrounding Knottenbelt’s report suggested a clear pathway to adoption without acknowledging the challenges ahead.

Crypto big caps stall rally but there is always action in micro caps


by globalintelhub
Sun, 07/15/2018 - 11:49


Since we've been monitoring this Crypto market we've noticed a few things. First, it's important to check your sources for data - as many exchanges are pumping 90% fake data (Start here for a lesson on fake Crypto data). Some sites like Total Cryptos are doing more data analysis, filtering, and processing and can be useful. Just be aware of where the data is coming from. For the major coins, such as BTCUSD and others data is obviously harder to fake - however volumes can easily be inflated as exchanges are unregulated and un-audited.

Although thousands of new coins/tokens have been created in the past months, Bitcoin still remains the majority of the market cap. When Bitcoin goes down many other Crypto currencies follow. That's not only a leader of the pack reason, it's also because many coins are actually denominated in BTC. Here's an important point for those who don't have an FX background - Bitcoin is denominated in USD primarily, so when you see without the BTCUSD or BTCEUR you're actually hearing the BTCUSD price, it is 'assumed' - Currencies whether they are Crypto or Fiat are traded in pairs. That's because you can't just 'Sell' Bitcoin you have to 'Sell' it against something, i.e. US Dollars. It doesn't have to be USD it could be JPY, EUR, CHF or any currency the exchange allows.

The pair trading system underpins the global digital currency markets. As explained in Splitting Pennies - The US Dollar is the world reserve currency because it is used to 'back' other currencies either with a peg or in the case of the Euro, a huge USD reserve base and open swap arrangement to get unlimited supply of USD should the need arise. While Crypto has a different architecture, the reserve model is the same for the purposes of this explanation - that some Cryptos are 'based' in BTC and ETH. So, if BTC goes down, all the coins denominated in BTC go down too.

What we've been watching though that is interesting is the gainers and losers which are published daily at Total Cryptos, such as todays:



Everyday there are some tokens that are up 20%, 50%, 100% or more. So what?

Forex Traders, Day Traders, and other traders see many similarities to the days of the late 90's in Crypto - lots of new issues, lots of hype, great shorting opportunities, big swings, large volatility. Of course all of these things pose big risks, and one should always realize that with any chance for big wins comes the chance for big losses. But we're not talking about investing. In fact we can summarize all the advice about Crypto investing in one simple sentence: Don't invest in something you don't understand. The only folks who really made fortunes 'investing' in Crypto were the HOLDrs from 2011 - now in BTCUSD. They are still holding (data shows).

The opportunity now seems to be for Crypto Day Traders. That means getting in, getting out - capturing the moves. We are not promoting trading as an easy way to make money - far from it! It's difficult! For this reason most people use BOTS. But there are opportunities when markets swing so violently and sometimes for no reason. Unlike traditional markets, BTC may move for unknown reasons. If we compare to futures markets, for example, detailed trading information is published regularly about open positions such as the "Commitment of Traders" report:

The Commitment of Traders (COT) reports provide a breakdown of each Tuesday’s open interest for markets in which 20 or more traders hold positions equal to or above the reporting levels established by the CFTC. Commitment of Traders (COT) charts are updated each Friday at 3pm CST.
The Commitment of Traders information is available with both the Disaggregated and Financial Traders Reports.

Crypto is far from having a COT style report as most exchanges aren't even honest about the data they report! But of course, that's also because futures are traded on centralized regulated exchanges with transparency rules.

Crypto is mostly an OTC opaque market in that there are no traces of money flows, something disturbing to regulators but another information edge to traders, at least the information flow is not 'controlled' by companies like Thompson Reuters.

For a good comparison take a look at this low latency data service offered by Reuters:

The impact of economic releases and macroeconomic news events on FX, fixed income, futures and options markets can’t be overstated – these events drive market volatility. However capturing this data and getting it to algorithms at sub-millisecond latency is a challenge. Economic releases come from all around the world and are released via a host of different mechanisms, while macroeconomic news is unstructured for applications to consume.

In Crypto it's almost the opposite, there isn't even a news feed that would make a basis for such a service. There aren't economic reports, news services (like Dow Jones) there's a big black nothing. Now of course big news impacts the markets, like the fake charges against Russian hackers in the Trump witch hunt. But there aren't economic reports, no streaming news services, it's just the wild west. There's no Bloomberg for Crypto.

So that means that for the foreseeable future, Crypto Day Trading is going to be a growth market, and the more coins that come online the better the opportunities will be. We aren't recommending people get into trading, we are just observing, as traders, that just like with penny stocks, there's always something on the move. Although the 'big caps' like the BTC and ETH are stuck in a range, they do move wildly, and the small caps and microcaps are still up 200% on a day sometimes. Of course, knowing which one is going to be the mover is the big question all traders ask when they turn on their machines in the morning.
