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.

Crypto is Only For Tax Evaders and Nefarious Actors, Obviously

Published on Jul 18, 2018
Today there were two US Congressional Hearings regarding Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies and digital assets. The reaction to the hearing was quite varied, from embracing of new technology, to outright dismissal. Let's talk about one bit of the congressional hearing in particular, where Bitcoin/crypto was said to "only be for tax evaders and narco terrorists", and why that's a load of crap, with a rebuttal from Chris Burniske at Consensus Invest.

The Cryptocurrency Insurance Business Is Booming


by Tyler Durden
Mon, 07/23/2018 - 23:35


What is the next step when you have a speculative asset whose value may go to zero (or $250,000 ) in the near future? Why start writing insurance policies on it, of course! That's the line of logic employed in the world of cryptocurrencies, as the newly formed crypto insurance business is booming.



To be sure, there is ample demand and soaring interest in crypto insurance, according to Bloomberg. After all, with fat premiums and no insurer on record to date of ever paying out a claim, why wouldn’t there be?

Furthermore, one can rarely go a few weeks without a headline about a major crypto exchange getting hacked, sometimes with hundreds of millions of dollars being lost in the process. Such was the case with the hacks of Bitfinex and Mt. Gox. Remember this stud?


Mark Karpeles, Mt. Gox CEO

As a result of this "accident prone" asset class, major players in the insurance and finance industry believe that the future for crypto insurance is bright. As Bloomberg notes, a representative from Allianz said it "could be a big opportunity." Which is why Allianz is offering the product:

“Insurance for cryptocurrency storage will be a big opportunity,” said Christian Weishuber, a spokesman for Allianz, which began offering individual coverage for digital-coin theft in the past year and is one of the few insurers that agreed to talk about the issue.​
“Digital assets are becoming more relevant, important and prevalent on the real economy and we are exploring product and coverage options in this area.”​

In addition, two other major crypto-insurance shops - Marsh & McLennan and Aon - said business has been booming over the last year.

While the cost is still beyond reach for many fledgling companies, Marsh & McLennan and Aon, the two leading insurance brokers that help companies shop for crypto policies, say business has been brisk this year. For the first time, Marsh formed a team of 10 dedicated to servicing blockchain startups.
Aon, which claims to have over 50 percent of the market for crypto insurance, recently streamlined its standard policy form to speed up the underwriting process. It has also seen some insurers tweak general company policies to include crypto-specific protections.​
Whil Marsh and Aon declined to identify their partners, people familiar with the matter say over a dozen underwriters, including Chubb and XL, currently provide coverage to crypto-related businesses. And here is a blast from the past: none other than AIG has also been adding crypto coverage into standard policy forms, and said it’s met with cryptocurrency custodians and trading platforms about coverage, however, the firm "declined to say how much in crypto-related premiums it’s taken in."

There may be a simple explanation for the enthusiasm to sell insurance: Marsh and Aon said that, so far, they are not aware of any insurance companies that have had to actually pay out on any claims, even as 2018 is supposed to be the "busiest year for hacks on record". It's probably safe to say that it won't be long before claims are paid out. Big ones.

With 2018 on track to be the busiest year for hacks on record, the potential for a reputational black eye is perhaps one reason many insurers have declined to speak publicly about crypto. Lloyd’s of London, the world’s oldest insurance market, published a bulletin this month with guidance on crypto coverage and asked its agents to “proceed with a level of caution that recognizes the risks.”​
Meanwhile, demand for insurance will only grow as it gives start-ups an air of credibility when try to raise capital, providing some modest cover for a business that has generally been speculative and regarded as somewhat dangerous.

It’s no small irony that the crypto industry, which originally sprung out of a techno-utopian desire to liberate its users from the traditional financial system, is embracing insurance as a way to go mainstream.

“I see it is a required step,” said Lucas Nuzzi, director of technology research at Digital Asset Research. Coverage can reduce investor concerns and make it easier to work with banks. “It definitely helps legitimize the industry.”​

For example, Trustology, a London-based startup focused on crypto custody services, is in talks to obtain coverage that would insure its customer accounts up to 85,000 pounds -- the same standard as a U.K. bank account -- to help attract more clients. It’s also looking at self-insuring client funds.

And while even major crypto exchanges like Coinbase are starting to buy this type of insurance, in the case of the most popular US crypto exchange, it is only on a "fraction" of their holdings.

Coinbase, one of the most widely used crypto exchanges, buys insurance for a fraction of the digital coins it holds. Funds stored in so-called hot wallets, which may contain up to 2 percent of client assets and are used in active trading, are covered. Coinbase’s disclosures don’t provide details on how much coverage is provided for its remaining coin deposits, which are stored offline as a security measure.​

Finally, selling crpto insurance for now remains a goldmine, with insurance companies able to charge a significant premiums, as underwriters can charge a crypto-related company upwards of five times or more than your average business for coverage against loss or theft, according to Bloomberg.

That said, like with any other other financial security boom, where derivatives of derivatives wind up in bloom during the first stage, many are skeptical about how long of a runway the field of crypto insurance will have, especially given the fact that the underlying asset value would will likely be for the determined by regulators in the future - and the decision will likely prove to be extremely volatile, leading to a painful bust for the insurance industry.

Bitcoin Surges Above $8,000 - Hits 2-Month Highs



by Tyler Durden
Tue, 07/24/2018 - 08:02


Bitcoin is now up over 40% from its June lows, breaking above $8,200 for the first time in over two months this morning and dragging the rest of the crypto space with it.



Bitcoin has broken above numerous key technical levels (4-month downtrend, 50DMA, 100DMA)...



“We’ve been in depressed levels for the last six months, so it’s really one way from here, which is up,” said Timothy Tam, chief executive officer with CoinFi, a cryptocurrency data analysis company, in a phone interview from Hong Kong. “The timing is always difficult to predict but I think we’re at the start of a secular bull market.”
The rest of the crypto space is also rallying...




No specific catalyst for the overnight move but generally positive news recently about impending approval in the United States for a cryptocurrency exchange traded fund (ETF) have helped bolster demand recently, as have comments by BlackRock last week that the world’s biggest investment firm was looking at building a cryptocurrencies team sparked notice that institutional investors are perhaps on their way.

As Bitcoinist reports, popular cryptocurrency trader and CEO of investment firm BKCM LLC, Brian Kelly spoke to CNBC’s Fast Money, outlining three reasons for which the recent Bitcoin price rally is real.

1. ETF Speculation
Kelly noted that “the chances of an ETF in 2018 are relatively low.” With that said, he also goes on to share that “this doesn’t stop speculation” as a prominent factor for the current rally.

On June 26th, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) received an application for a Bitcoin ETF. It was filed by Cboe Global Markets who’ve proposed to partner with SolidX and Van Eyck Investment. While this is not the first time Cboe has filed for a Bitcoin ETF, Bitcoinist outlined three reasons why its chances of getting approved are higher than ever.

Building on the ETF hype, the SEC has received and influx of comments on behalf of cryptocurrency enthusiasts, most of which are overly positive and express serious interest for it to happen.

2. Institutions Are Getting Serious
Kelly said:

I can tell you from the calls that I’m getting, people that looked down on it [Bitcoin] in December didn’t like the price and are coming back now saying – Alright, this thing is not going away, we need to understand what it is, where does this asset class fit into our portfolio.​
He is not the only one sharing this sentiment. Earlier this month, Digital Currency Group’s Barry Silbert also reiterated on the importance of institutional money pouring into the market. Silbert noted that infrastructure for “big money” is getting closer to being laid down. Both of them outlined Coinbase’s Custody solution, which paves the way for institutional money.

Earlier this month, BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager and ETF provider was reported to mull interest in Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. New York-based investment bank Goldman Sachs also announced they have appointed a new CEO who’s “keen on Bitcoin.”

3. WEB 3.0
While there is no unanimous or universally agreed-upon definition of WEB 3.0, Kelly refers to it as the “new internet” and the “improved internet.”

The trader explains that the institutions see cryptocurrencies as a critical factor bridging existing ecosystems to the “new internet.” Hence, the new technology would be a welcome addition to their portfolios.

Bitcoin is Very “Reflexive”
Apart from the reasons Kelly outlined, he also discussed with Futures Now trader Tim Seymour the sentiments around Bitcoin’s increasing price.
Seymour noted that investors are more comfortable buying Bitcoin at $7,800 than they are at $6,000. He also explained that they will probably be even more comfortable at $10,000. Kelly agreed, comparing Bitcoin to gold and other currencies, saying:

The more value comes, the more it [Bitcoin] becomes.​

A Bitcoin ETF Leading Indicator? Altcoins bleed out to BTC
Crypto Bobby



Published on Jul 23, 2018
Bitcoin has been slowly but surely gaining positive momentum recently, with altcoins bleeding out in BTC ratios. How long will Bitcoin continue to regain dominance in the cryptoasset market from altcoins?

One big aspect of Bitcoin's recent trading movement is also the anticipation/speculation around a BTC ETF. Let's take a look at the $GBTC premium over BTC spot price and why that might be an excellent indicator to keep an eye on.
