Update on Grin, Crypto Markets

By Adam Sharp on March 8, 2019

Dear Member, In late January, I mentioned I was watching grin and thought it a promising new coin. I noted its technical potential but warned, “Grin only just began trading, and the supply is extremely low, so the price remains high… It’s likely the price will fall substantially as major mining operations come online.” Well, grin’s price has fallen quite a bit since then (from around $10…
Dear Member, The past year has been a brutal period for crypto investors. However, there are encouraging signs that the bear market may be ending. First, we’ve seen promising price action on strong volume. Over the past week, bitcoin has risen from $3,600 to near $4,000. It’s not a…

Clarity on Why We Need Crypto

By Adam Sharp on February 8, 2019

Dear Member, Recently, a few of you have written and asked for more clarity on why I believe we desperately need an alternative to fiat money. I realize this is a rather unconventional belief, so I’m happy to oblige. First, let’s talk about the current fiat system. The fundamental…

Market Update and Keeping an Eye on New Coins

By Adam Sharp on January 25, 2019

Dear Member, Crypto markets have been relatively stable over the past few weeks. Unfortunately, the government shutdown has slowed the launch of major upcoming platforms, such as Bakkt and Fidelity Digital Assets, as they cannot receive approval to begin operating from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission until it’s over. However,…

Crypto Market Update

By Adam Sharp on December 7, 2018

Dear Member, As you all know, it’s been another rough month for crypto markets. Altcoins have been hit especially hard. As I write this, bitcoin is trading around $3,400. I can’t say when this bear market will end, but I will tell you that I haven’t sold any of…

Crypto Market Update

By Adam Sharp on November 16, 2018

As you likely already know, crypto markets have slumped lower over the past few days. Bitcoin’s trading at around $5,595 as I write this, and altcoins are down similarly. Things have stabilized a bit over the last 24 hours, but we could be in for more selling over the coming…

New Pick Postponed, Quick Market Update

By Adam Sharp on October 12, 2018

Dear Member, Our new pick will be ready next week. I apologize for the delay. In the meantime, let’s do a quick market update. The crypto sell-off this week was not surprising considering the chaos going on with stock and bond markets. In fact, I think crypto held up…

Crypto Market Update (Institutional Edition)

By Adam Sharp on October 5, 2018

The crypto market is continuing to consolidate. Considering the typical volatility in this sector, we’ve had a pretty calm last six weeks or so. To me, this feels more like a bottom than a continuation of the correction. People aren’t wildly bullish, which is a good thing. Famed hedge fund…

New Recommendation: Bitshares

Bitshares Ticker: BTS Exchanges: Binance or BitShares Asset Exchange Price: $0.10 Market cap: $273 million Circulating supply: 2,653,190,000 BTS Max supply: 3,600,570,502 BTS Dear Member, BitShares is a leading blockchain-based financial platform.

Portfolio and Crypto Market Update

By Adam Sharp on July 13, 2018

First, a quick market update. The markets have been a bit shaken by a few small hacks in the past few weeks. But overall, crypto prices have been fairly resilient recently. Weak hands are still being shaken out of the market, but the pace of selling has slowed dramatically, which…

New Recommendation: Bitcoin

By Adam Sharp on June 25, 2018

Most of you know that I believe we’re on the verge of an institutional boom in cryptocurrency. The necessary infrastructure to support this boom is being built, or launched, as I type this. Major players such the New York Stock Exchange’s parent company (Intercontinental Exchange), Fidelity and the Nasdaq have…

Crypto Market Update: A Bullish Turn?

By Adam Sharp on June 15, 2018

As you know, the crypto market has been hurting lately. But we just received a good reason to be optimistic (and opportunistic). On Thursday, The Wall Street Journal reported that a senior SEC official said Ethereum is NOT a security. Here’s the quote from SEC Director of Corporation Finance William…

A Handy Guide to Selling on Bittrex

By Adam Sharp on June 13, 2018

Yesterday afternoon, we recommended selling your WAX position on Bittrex. Then we discovered Bittrex has made a number of changes to its site that makes selling less intuitive. You can no longer sell from the “Wallets” tab. So if you’re still trying to sell WAX, here are the steps you…

Sell Alert: WAX

By Adam Sharp on June 12, 2018

Unfortunately, my recent Speculative Portfolio pick Wax has been disappointing (to say the least). And we just received more bad news. OPSkins (the trading platform operated by the Wax team) lost an important partner – Valve. Valve games were responsible for a good deal of the…
