    Draghi Scores & Cryptos Celebrate

    Finally some much-needed clarity! Just when some feared all was lost and crypto prices were showing signs of a potential plunge, some exciting news was delivered from the SEC in the United States, bringing with it the kind of optimism that we haven’t seen in months. The crypto markets are now celebrating and have given a strong push off the lows. It seems the title of yesterday’s daily market update “A Crypto U-turn” was more appropriate than

    Bitcoin ‘Boom-Bust Cycle Has Repeated Itself’ – Senior Market Analyst (Interview)

    Bitcoinist has once again caught up with Mati Greenspan, Senior Market Analyst at eToro, the most popular social trading platform in the world with millions of users. Greenspan keeps a close eye on cryptocurrency markets and shares his thoughts on the recent Bitcoin price plunge and why he believes this current downtrend nothing out of the ordinary.  The price could easily reach $2,000 or $20,000 in the next two months. Neither would surprise me very much.

    Think Long Term and Short

    The crypto-community may have done a fair bit of Buffett-bashing and even a bit of Dimon-drubbing of late, but the fact remains that these two men are legends in the field of finance and possess vast knowledge and wisdom especially when it comes to traditional finance. This week, the dynamic duo published a brilliant letter in the Wall Street Journal urging corporate America to look past their own noses. The specific calls to action included asking companies not

    Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

    It seems in crypto it’s always two steps forward and one step back. Even though we’re seeing more clarity from global regulators and governments, it seems the banking world just isn’t sure how to engage with blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies.  On the one hand we see millions being invested into research and development new projects, yet on the other hand, anyone wanting to start a new business in the cryptocurrency or blockchain spaces is going to find

    The Problem with Democracy

    In the free democracy of the United States of America, almost anyone can run for president. Winning a presidential election, on the other hand, is an entirely different matter. If you’re deep inside the crypto-space, you probably won’t be surprised to hear that John McAfee has announced his candidacy for the White House in the 2020 elections on a unique “crypto advocate” ticket. The man who created the McAfee Antivirus in 1987 has become somewhat of an

    eToro Daily Market Update: Don’t Panic

    If there’s one lesson we can learn from the Italian bond meltdown this week, it’s don’t panic. This is also the advice that is printed in “large friendly letters” on the cover of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. A friendly reminder that no matter how complicated things may seem and how there might be, we should always remain calm. In financial markets, cooler heads almost always prevail. A long-term, well-diversified portfolio will almost always beat the

    Playing with the Scales

    Just as the market was digesting the harsh news from Italy yesterday, it seems another curve ball was thrown into the mix, this time from Spain. As we know, there was a setback in Italy, and though it seemed last week like they would be on a fast track to having a stable government, we may now be weeks, if not months away. Now, it seems that a rather old conspiracy regarding the Prime Minister of

    Litecoin, which began trading as a cryptocurrency in April 2013, has long been in the top-10 cryptos in terms of market capitalization – mostly because it is one of the earliest and most successful Bitcoin derivatives. The Litecoin project, launched in October 2011, was created by Charlie Lee, who back then was a Google software engineer.

    US Dollar Unhinged

    One of the trickiest questions I’ve ever been asked by a journalist was: Aren’t cryptocurrencies just an easy way for rogue governments to skirt international sanctions? I was stumped. Certainly, we can all see the value in a currency that operates independently of governments and banks, but does that mean that adherence to globally recognized standards is history? For the ICO market, we’ve seen that many of the more obvious scams were called out rather quickly by the
