Kemball-Cook quashed any views that the Bitcoin bubble will burst at the time The world of cryptocurrency is a grey area for many, where people are not only sceptical but are very skittish on new developments. If you are looking for some stocking fillers for your friends and family, Bitcoin might be a good option to consider. Not only is it easy, but it’s is a gift no one else will have thought of. Well thanks to two British entrepreneurs, Laurence Kemball-Cook and Louise Doherty it’s even easier to gift crypto, or it was at least. As previously reported by CryptoDaily, the two initially wanted to give Bitcoin as a gift but found that they were unable to, as there were no facilities to fulfil this. As reported by Bitcoinist, they decided to start their own business, making a website that allowed anyone to gift Bitcoin to friends and family all with a simple click – much like buying something from Amazon. Kemball-Cook quashed any views that the Bitcoin bubble will burst at the time, around the time of the…Dec 24, 2019
Cryptocurrency exchange Binance recently released a research report that looked at Bitcoin’s limited correlation with other asset classes and its significantly high volatility. Bitcoin has recorded soaring volatility over the past ten years, especially in 2017, when the price of Bitcoin hit an all-time high of $20,000 from a low of $700, indicating a rate of return of about 27,000% in just 12 months. Such instances that indicated the volatility of the coin have allowed people to brand the coin as a highly unstable and risky investment. However, the research suggested that the price volatility of the coin has been subsiding from the time of the genesis block. Additionally, a correlation analysis, which indicates a statistical measurement between multiple assets aiming to study their relationship, was also conducted. According to the analysis, Bitcoin exhibited a low correlation with other asset classes like gold, silver, oil, etc. The price changes of various assets along with Bitcoin at different time spans was also disclosed in the research. The first chart indicated a “three-year weekly return correlations among asset classes”, The second chart illustrated the…Aug 5, 2019

Economists believe that a best-case scenario sees the global economy recovering in two to three years. Fund managers are largely staying on the sidelines. A lack of commitment in this rally could be disastrous if it reverses. More and more, it’s looking like the U.S. stock market is headed for a crash. Over the past few weeks, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 have been unstoppable in the face of dire economic data. The Fed’s commitment to propping up financial markets has bolstered investor confidence and pushed equities ever higher. But all of that is bound to come crashing down, according to some of the biggest fund managers on the planet. Smart Money Anticipates Stock Market Crash Bank of America surveyed fund managers around the globe and found that over two-thirds believe we’re in a bear-market rally. That means they think the increase we’ve seen over the past few weeks won’t last – and that stocks will eventually resume their downward trajectory. Fund managers surveyed were more bearish than bullish on the trajectory of the stock market….May 19, 2020
Blockchain platform Waves has launched a new betting market allowing users to speculate on whether the spread of the coronavirus pandemic has passed its peak. Customers can now purchase ‘COVID-UP-SEP20’ and ‘COVID-DOWN-SEP20’ tokens to bet on whether the number of new weekly cases worldwide will exceed April 4 – 10’s record of 595,802 confirmed infections before September. Waves’ tokens are purchased in exchange for the stablecoin, Neutrino Dollar (USDN). All USDN used to buy the tokens are locked in escrow until September, and then distributed among the winners. The campaign will ostensibly contribute to coronavirus charity initiatives. Making waves with their new markets At the start of April, Waves launched predictive betting markets allowing users to speculate on whether the number of globally confirmed COVID-19 cases would increase or decrease on a week-over-week basis. Speaking to Cointelegraph a Waves spokesperson revealed the platform’s week-over-week predictive markets had finished, adding that its new September markets are likely to be its last COVID-19-themed betting market. The number of weekly confirmed cases will be determined according to data from the World Health Organization…Apr 30, 2020
Fund managers have turned bullish for the first time in two years amidst a strong Dow Jones rally. It shows a combination of four major factors is pushing the market up, not just the phase one deal. Cash holding levels dropped to a six-year low at 4.2%, indicating investors are eyeing the equities market. The latest Fund Manager Survey from Bank of America shows a high level of optimism on Wall Street. The major bearish sentiment reversal indicates a major Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) rally is forming. The report described the significant decline of recession fears by 33% and the rapid increase of global growth to 66% as the main factors behind the switch of Wall Street’s sentiment. Previous Dow rally was caused by retail investors, next will be institutions Since December 3, within less than three weeks, the Dow Jones has surged from 27,502 to 28,267. The upsurge was mainly triggered by the U.S.-China trade deal and relaxation of financial conditions caused by the injection of liquidity by the Fed. The Dow Jones rally throughout the past three…Dec 18, 2019
The cryptocurrency altcoin known as Chainlink has had a banner year, bringing investors in the project gains of over 1,100% from trough to peak. However, a violent selloff has begun in the asset, with investors taking profit following incredible returns it amassed throughout the year. The price action closely mimics a Wyckoff distribution schematic that suggests the selling will continue in the foreseeable future. A Look Back At The Altcoin’s Year of Strong Performance Ever since the crypto hype bubble popped, stories of crypto investors becoming rich overnight have all but dried up and have become little more than myths or fairytales harkening back to the days where irrational exuberance took control over the mainstream public. But every now and again, an altcoin will come along that disrupts the industry and shocks the crypto community with massive gains. This year’s poster child for crypto moonshot is none other than Chainlink.

Notably, even President Xi Jinping encouraged Chinese investors to take up blockchain and crypto activities in an attempt to diversify the Asian economy. These developments have made billionaire Michael Novogratz warn that the United State’s reserve status might soon be undermined by the Chinese revolution. In his statement, he insists that China is already ahead in various areas including fintech. He believes that the U.S. is just playing catch-up. Warning to China His latest comments come in the wake of a renaissance in China to enhance blockchain development and boost the Yuan into becoming a globalized currency. According to the recent statements by Chinese President Xi Jinping, he pledges support for the nascent industry. President Jinping supporting the industry shows that the government has taken a bullish stand on the issue. As we published, the president and his government are considering exploiting the potentials that blockchain and crypto technologies have to offer. Huawei and the Chinese Central Bank signed…Nov 13, 2019
The CEO of blockchain payment network Ripple says the company does not want to “dump” its associated XRP cryptocurrency despite selling huge amounts of it. In an interview with CNN on Jan. 5, Brad Garlinghouse added fresh contention to the debate about Ripple’s relationship to XRP, which has gained 10% in the past 24 hours. Garlinghouse: Ripple “can’t control XRP price” “In the XRP community, Ripple is the largest owner, and the point I have made is we’re the most interested party in the success of the XRP ecosystem,” he told the network. On the topic of how Ripple manages that ownership, Garlinghouse stated: “Yes, Ripple owns a lot of XRP, we’re very interested in the success of XRP, but the accusations of us dumping, that’s not in our best interests to do that […]. We would never do that and in fact, we’ve taken steps to lock up most of the XRP we own in escrows so we can’t touch it.” The comments jar with Ripple’s own market moves in 2019 and before. As Cointelegraph reported, the company has…Jan 6, 2020
Stock and oil markets extended their decline to new lows on Wednesday, as investors are in a rush to cash in amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Bitcoin has shown a striking correlation to the stock market during the last few weeks, but it has ignored today’s crash, maintaining above $5,100. Will it manage to resist the pressure?
