Be Cautious in Unpredictable Crypto Markets

By Vin Narayanan on June 30, 2023

The crypto markets have entered a highly unpredictable phase. There are so many contradictory market forces in play that it’s hard to make any short-term market predictions. The SEC is going after Coinbase. Coinbase is fighting back. Blackrock (among others) applied for a bitcoin spot ETF (with bitcoin as the underlying asset). The SEC said no in a matter of days (funny how quickly the SEC can move when it wants to). The Fed paused rate hikes. And now it…
We received an email from a member recently that asked the following questions (and I’m paraphrasing): Why are underperforming coins still in the Crypto Asset Strategies portfolio? Why aren’t coins like ethereum, solana and others that have performed well in…

Crypto Bull Case Solid Despite Correction

By Adam Sharp on May 28, 2021

I’ve had a lot of questions about crypto coming from friends and family lately. Many of them are particularly concerned that Elon Musk can apparently move this huge market by himself. So I want to make it clear that I don’t really believe Elon was the…

Alert: Taking Profits and Selling

By Adam Sharp on February 19, 2021

Deciding when to take profits in crypto is extremely difficult. Based on past bull markets, we likely still have at least a year to go before things cool off (and probably more based on the unprecedented deficits and money printing today). But I think it would…

Nano, Decred Looking Up

By Adam Sharp on January 15, 2021

Long-time members know that I’ve always been wary of more centralized cryptocurrencies such as Ripple.  As you probably know by now, the SEC is going after Ripple in a big way. Here’s a brief summary from legal news site JDSupra,.

2020 Turned Into a Great Year for Crypto

By Adam Sharp on December 31, 2020

It’s been an amazing year in crypto! We had a nasty dip in the spring — followed by a roaring comeback once people realized crypto was created for these economic times (massive money printing and even lower interest rates).  Things are truly starting to get interesting…

What We Should Learn From the Twitter Hack

By Adam Sharp on July 17, 2020

By now, you’ve probably heard about the major hack that occurred on Twitter. The accounts of Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Coinbase, Gemini, Barack Obama, Apple and others were taken over by bad actors on Wednesday. Once this individual (or group) successfully…

‘Money Printer Go Brrr’ Goes Mainstream

By Adam Sharp on June 26, 2020

We’ve been talking about the inevitability of massive money printing for the past few years. It’s one of the big reasons I like crypto so much. Now everyone, including mainstream CNBC shows like “Fast Money,” are talking about how the Federal Reserve’s actions are causing stock prices to go up.

Crypto Bull Case Strong Despite Near-Term Risks

By Adam Sharp on June 12, 2020

Yesterday we had one of the biggest sell-offs in stock market history. The Dow Jones dropped almost 7%. And the S&P 500 dropped nearly 6%. The sell-off was extremely steep. At one point on Thursday, Bitcoin was also down around 6%. But it has rebounded since and is…

More Institutional Proof for Bitcoin

By Adam Sharp on May 29, 2020

This week we received more proof that institutions are buying up Bitcoin. I highly recommend reading this recent Decrypt piece titled “Hedge funds are buying Bitcoin despite Goldman Sachs’ skepticism.” Here’s an excerpt: Since Bitcoin’s block reward halving, digital asset manager Grayscale Investments has purchased more…
The bitcoin halving has finally happened. And things are certainly looking up in the crypto world. As I write this on Friday morning bitcoin is trading over $9,500. Last week I told you that respected institutional investor Paul Tudor Jones announced he was bullish on bitcoin. I think that…
Billionaire investor Paul Tudor Jones has officially announced that he’s very bullish on bitcoin. And better yet, he says the primary reason he’s buying BTC is because it’s an excellent hedge against inflation. Jones went as far as to compare bitcoin today to gold in the 1970s. Gold had an…

Bitcoin Was Made for This

By Adam Sharp on March 18, 2020

We are in uncharted waters. The federal government is likely to announce badly needed stimulus checks in the near future. The Federal Reserve has already announced that it’s injecting trillions of dollars in liquidity into the market – and more is expected. Bailouts are a near certainty for airlines, hotels…

Bitcoin Approaches $10,000, Altcoins Gain

By Adam Sharp on February 7, 2020

Dear Member, As I write this, bitcoin is trading at $9,770. That’s up from $9,283 one week ago. Ethereum is trading at $219, which is up from $178 one week ago. I believe bitcoin continues to lead this bullish price action. Altcoins are starting to participate more, but I’m still…

By Adam Sharp on January 24, 2020
