  • Crypto is crushing it in 2020!
  • Since the start of the corona panic, I've been keeping tabs on which asset is weathering the storm the best. And not surprisingly, crypto is doing the best by far - at least for now. After a 16% jump in less than 24 hours last Thursday, crypto is now 31% up year to date (YTD). All while…   • The S&P 500 is now down 11%.    • The JSE All Share is now down aroun... ››› more

  • What investors must do when crypto prices crash
  • 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

  • Bitcoin: “A bet on the future; a shelter for the present"
  • The quote above is what Jehan Chu, managing partner at blockchain investment and advisory firm Kenetic Capital in Hong Kong, recently said about Bitcoin. What made him say this?

  • Why Tether's major supply shift is good news for Ethereum investors
  • 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

  • Do you think ONLY criminals use cryptos
  • Many people have dubbed cryptos, the currency of criminals. People believe that each day millions of dollars' worth of cryptos are being used for hacking, money laundering or drugs. Of course, there are people that use cryptos for illegal purposes, but if this was its main purpose, then the crypto market would be MUCH bigger. The fact is, criminals still favour cash…and banks. Let me... ››› more

  • "Stablecoins”: The future currency
  • A useful currency should be a medium of exchange, a unit of account, and a store of value. But to this day, Bitcoin - which was touted as a viable alternative currency - has failed to achieve this. You see, because bitcoin is so volatile, a consumer or an investor can significantly overpay or underpay for a product. A product that costs $7,000 can cost $8,000 or $6,000 in a few hours. Also... ››› more

  • Have we discovered the future of money?
  • Did you know that the story of money is older than civilisation itself? That's right. Money is an “innovation” that's older than the wheel and, as old as fire. Originally when humans wanted to trade outside their tribe or villages, they needed something that everyone agreed had value. Something that was accessible. Enter “commodity money”. There were many kinds of commodity... ››› more
