Why every serious investor should be focused on blockchain technology / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Stephen_McBride

There’s a lot going on in the world right now. Fears about the Delta variant. Inflation’s making a comeback. There’s chaos in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, the Nasdaq and S&P 500 just struck record highs.

Investors are confused. And I don’t blame them. Negativity is dominating the news. And you’ve got so-called “experts” on TV claiming this stock market bubble is about to pop.

I want our readers to focus on the BIG PICTURE.

Hands down, today is the most exciting time to be an investor since the mid-1990s, when the dot-com boom was just starting.

CENTRALIZATION, BLOCKCHAIN and DECENTRALIZATION / Politics / BlockChain

By: Raymond_Matison

Brief history of centralization

One important but mostly uncomplimentary history of man is recorded through his activities in war.  Thousands of years ago large marauding bands of tribesmen descended on small communities or villages pillaging or killing its inhabitants.  As centuries of time passed, small communities coalesced to become larger villages, some of which eventually expanded and grew to become city states or petty kingdoms.          

In 480 B.C. Xerxes invaded Greek city states, but after taking Athens had to retreat. As William McNeil, author of his magnificent book “The Rise of the West” states: “free men organized into city-states need fear no military danger from without”.  This early centralization of men and weapons protected cities from conquest at that time.  The concept of certain centralization and its benefits became acknowledged and gained momentum over future centuries.  In the seventeenth century, after the 30 year war, new legal principles for states and sovereignty were established in 1648.  Under the new Westphalian system, states would exist with agreed-upon borders as each state’s sovereignty was recognized by others.  This became another historical benchmark for increasing centralization.

Over the next several centuries, the so called industrial revolution with its centralization of production and factories provided heretofore unforeseen job and income opportunities for the general populace, further rapidly accelerating growth of cities and population movement from rural to urban areas.   Increased production and worker incomes spurred sales providing useful products to the masses, and profits creating a dramatic centralization of wealth and power for these owners of productive facilities.

How NFTs Are Shaking Up Arts Trading / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Adam_Walker

While the argument around the veracity of cryptocurrencies and their real-world value continues to rage unabated, there are offshoots of the blockchain technology that are beginning to have genuine impacts and outcomes on traditional industries and sectors around the world.

One of these offshoots is the NFT, or Non-Fungible Token, which shot to prominence at the beginning of 2021 thanks to an experienced digital artist called Beeple, who sold a collection of his artworks in NFT format for over $60 million.

This was then followed by a whole host of other hugely popular online auctions of NFTs, which took place on NFT auction sites such as Nifty Gateway and Rarible.

Trying to Buy Coinbase Stock on IPO Day - Institutional Investors Freeze out Retail Investors / Companies / BlockChain

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The institutional investors froze out the retail investors, I tried to buy the stock around a target price of about $350 for the first half hour of trading without success, no stock available as my following video illustrates. I view coinbase as a high risk long-term all or nothing stock, if you don't understand what that means then first read my recent article in-depth analysis on how to invest in high risk stocks (How to Invest in HIGH RISK Tech Stocks for 2021 and Beyond) that has first been made available to patrons who support my work.

So coinbase closed at $328, which is better than if it closed at $428, though in the long-run the current price should not make much difference, i.e. if the price increases 10 fold or goes to zero so the few percent difference does not matter much at the start in ones high risk investment that gives exposure to a crypto stock that should be still around a decade from now and unlike crypto currencies can be held within a tax free wrapper such as an ISA or SIPP.

Litecoin and Bitcoin-Which Is Better? / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Umer_Mahmood

Over the last few years, there has been a significant uprise in the popularity of cryptocurrencies. In fact, they have gone as far as to soar in popularity, and they are even becoming a highly important part of many people’s day to day lives so much so that they have found ways to integrate it like that. However, while it has significantly soared, it has also experienced its fair share of downfalls, controversy, and hard times.

Unfortunately, no cryptocurrency, or anything associated, has made its way through without any controversy, it is just a normal part of it. The main focus of this all, no matter the setbacks, has been the revolutionary cryptocurrency known as Bitcoin. It has been a shining light and people have flocked to it in numbers that have never been seen before.

US Fed Grilled about Its Unsound Currency, Digital Currency Schemes / Currencies / BlockChain

By: MoneyMetals

As financial markets gyrated this week, Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell touted the U.S. dollar as a form of “sound money.” More on that incredible take in a moment. 

But first, let’s review this week’s market action.

Inflation fears helped drive another spike in long-term bond yields, and by Thursday that began to spook Wall Street. The Treasury market is now off to one of its roughest starts to a year on record. As a result, calls are mounting for the Fed to up its bond purchases.

A steepening yield curve is helping to depress precious metals prices. Rising real interest rates tend to be negative for the gold market.

Janet Yellen Re: Cryptocurrencies and Terrorists / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Kelsey_Williams

In comments made during her confirmation hearing last month, Secretary of Treasury Janet Yellen said that transactions in cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin, were used “mainly for illicit financing” and suggested that lawmakers and regulators curtail their use due to terrorism concerns.

Here are the statements she made in response to a question from Sen. Maggie Hassan, who asked Yellen during her confirmation hearing on Tuesday about the dangers of terrorists using cryptocurrencies:

BLOCKCHAIN INVESTMENT PRIMER / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Raymond_Matison

Most people have added at least two new words to their vocabulary in the last decade – Bitcoin and blockchain, even if their understanding of these terms is far from complete.  Perhaps they have been also exposed to the terms “distributed ledger technology” and “cryptocurrency” - with comparable lack of understanding.  Yet all these terms will command increasing attention as investing in future technology will require understanding of these terms, and familiarity with the diversity of these emergent technologies.

These terms represent the language of new investment opportunities, similarly to the formerly new investment terms of more than a decade ago, such as integrated circuits, internet, email, on-line account, Google, and Amazon.  This new technology is developing now, and there already are some investment opportunities at this time, but multiple more opportunities will develop over the next decade – just as they did when computing and internet continued to develop over time.

A clunky brick-sized telephone of the 1980s eventually gave rise to a “smart phone” and the attendant gargantuan investment returns on Apple, and other related technology stocks.  Similarly, yet unknown and undeveloped opportunities will profit those who understand the blockchain technology and its evolution and use.  This article is to provide a general understanding of various emerging technologies which may introduce useful services to consumers that can evolve into attractive investment products.

It’s Time for Private Cryptocurrency Boards / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Steve_H_Hanke

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, currencies around the world took a deep dive. To name but a few casualties: Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Iran, Lebanon, Mexico, Nigeria, Russia, South Africa, Syria, Turkey, Venezuela, and Zimbabwe. Not only have the currencies in these countries plunged, but the burden of their foreign debts has soared. Exchange-rate instability is a curse.

Indeed, currency instability, banking crises, soaring inflation, sovereign-debt defaults, and economic booms and busts all have a common source: exchange-rate instability. The ills induced by exchange-rate instability bring with them calls for policy changes. Karl Schiller, the German Finance Minister from 1966 until 1972, understood this simple fact. Schiller’s mantra was clear and uncompromising: “Stability is not everything, but without stability, everything is nothing.” Well, Schiller’s mantra is my mantra.

A Digital “Fedcoin” May Be Coming… And It Would Be Terrifying / Currencies / BlockChain

By: MoneyMetals

Cryptocurrencies are based on blockchain technology that allows for de-centralized peer-to-peer transactions to take place outside the government-controlled banking system.

Backers of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin tout their privacy advantages and resistance to inflation due to their strictly limited quantities.

But what if this free-market innovation were co-opted to achieve opposite ends – centralized tracking of every transaction with no possibility of escaping digital devaluations?

That’s what some central bankers are ultimately aiming for by replacing paper cash with their own digitized, monopolized currencies.
