The crypto I want to introduce to you today doesn't get much media attention.
However, it could be just as revolutionary as bitcoin or ethereum…even more so!
And it's thanks to its ground-break technology, which has interested major companies.
In fact, this crypto has already formed partnerships with Microsoft, Volkswagen, Bosch, Fujitsu, Audi, Jaguar Land Rover and much more.
It's... ››› more
2020 is set to be a big year for cryptos.

Bitcoin's entered 2020 just like it finished 2019 - rising up!
After soaring 100% last year alone, the largest crypto has continued its upward trend rising 35% this year.
Because of this, Bitcoin's received a fair amount of attention in the financial media.
However, what you probably haven't seen in the media is the gains “alt-coins” have generated in 2020.

I don't know if you noticed, but last weekend, bitcoin's price soared from around $7,500 to over $9,600 - a +28% gain!
Many cryptocurrency market analysts pointed to comments made by China's president President Xi Jinping that the country should "seize the opportunity" of bitcoin's blockchain technology, as the reason behind bitcoin's sudden rally.
You see, China banned bitcoin and cryptoc... ››› more
Today, we're going to forget about crypto prices…

The new crypto platforms like Bakkt…
And look at something I think every investor - or anyone - should know.

In what was one of the largest 24-hour market sell-offs this year, over $30 billion was dumped from crypto assets.
At one stage, the largest crypto, bitcoin, was down around 20% as its price crashed to a three-month low of just over $7,800.
While, many predicted a huge drop to around $8,000, it was still quite a shock to see it happen.
So what caused the crash and what should crypto in... ››› more
That's what Su Zhu, the CEO of hedge fund Arrows Capital, said after the anti-climactic launch of crypto platform Bakkt.
You see, after the first 24 hours, the exchange recorded only 72 BTC had been entered into monthly contracts.
However, people should not be alarmed by the bleak start as regulated futures contracts mostly kick off slow. Su Zhu continued…

I'm sure you've heard of portfolio rebalancing. Almost every investor does it.
It's a simple, but extremely important ‘tool' where an investor periodically buys or sells different assets (stocks, bonds, etc) within a portfolio.
Rebalancing helps reduce the risk an investor suffers from the changes in returns of various investments. And it also helps ‘restore' their desired asset allocatio... ››› more
There are many different ways to make money from cryptos…

Tether is a name that comes up again and again in crypto.
It's been called negative things like a ‘scam' and ‘fraudulent'.
On the other hand, as a stablecoin, it’s also been called ‘the most useful cryptocurrency in existence’, since its price is pegged to the dollar.
But today I’m not here to join in on this debate.
Instead, I’m going to sh... ››› more
