What is the MKR and the DAI stablecoin it governs? Paul Puey (Edge CEO) and I dive into the history, tech, & what's next for MRK/DAI. We also put our money where our mouths are: we each decide whether to invest $100. This is not investment advice, we're just giving you a peek into our own portfolios and how we make decisions for ourselves. Keep in mind, I'm more interested in the team, the tech, and whether it's a cool project than in short term gains.

Check out our new platform 🚀 https://thecapital.io/By Dr. Chris Kacher of Hanse Digital Access, KJA Digital Asset Investments and Virtue of Selfish Investing on The CapitalQuantum Poodles Bringing Billions to Blockchain™Election Day LoomingIt’s about two weeks before election day. The stimulus package remains deadlocked. The Republicans don’t want to agree because if Trump loses, they can then say they remained fiscally responsible for not compromising to an unfair deal. The Democrats don’t want to agree because if there is no agreement prior to the election, the odds of Trump winning are diminished. It is in their interest to see Trump lose the election. As consequence, markets continue to express choppy behavior as they don’t like uncertainty.One thing is for sure. A stimulus package of some trillion dollar magnitude will be passed. This will help roughly correlated assets such as stocks, gold, bitcoin, and hard assets resume their uptrends. Other major central banks such as the ECB are at record highs in terms of their balance sheets. The ECB’s stands at 6.7 trillion EUR due mainly to QE.Corruption has been rife among banks. In regards to the 1MDB scandal, Goldman Sachs is paying $2 billion to avoid criminal prosecution. A well-known spokesperson has asked, “Why is it we put millions of people smoking plants behind bars yet, these idiots get to walk around free while getting rich?”Money Velocity Plummets while Money Supply SkyrocketsAs for the St. Louis Fred website, which tracks various metrics including money supply, no, the graphic on its website is not an error. M1 and M2 velocity have been plummeting at record speeds based on data going back to 1958. In other words, money being created is not being spent except on essentials. COVID has been a major cause of this. Once the situation normalizes, people will start to spend. In 1920s Germany, deflation preceded hyperinflation. More than 80 central banks around the planet have created more digital fiat this year alone than all the prior years combined. This unprecedented situation could induce a spike in inflation if history is any guide. That said, the situation may be mitigated somewhat by the exponential growth in the number of cutting edge technologies which are growing at exponential speeds thus are material creators of value. The utility in blockchain and AI-based software alone is groundbreaking.But whether we get some form of spiking inflation or not, either situation is bullish for bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general.Technological DemocratizationOver the last few decades, there has been a democratization of sorts. The internet decentralized thus democratized the control of information to some extent. Congress was alarmed by this possibility of democratized information so held meetings in 1995 on how to control the internet, ie, how to control the flow of information. While they failed to some extent, mainstream media is their weapon of choice, which has proven effective in the attempt to control the minds of many. Still, some decentralized platforms remain out of the control of governments. As one example, they failed at controlling p2p bit torrent file sharing. The U.S. government spent billions of taxpayer dollars trying to quash the many Pirate’s Bay site lookalikes as they emerged like mushrooms across the landscape, but the number of people using such platforms only continued to grow from a tiny number into well over 100 million users. For every Pirates Bay that was shut down by the courts, ten new ones were launched by independent parties. But the emergence of Netflix and iTunes capped this growth due to their fair business models since for a small monthly fee, one could access a massive library of high-quality music and movies.The Genie is FreeSo while the U.S. government made an example of a few individuals such as kim dot com, they simply don’t have the manpower or resources to put the genie back in the bottle once it is out. This has been true of the internet, of p2p platforms, and will be true of blockchain and decentralized finance, or DeFi. Centralized platforms will co-exist with decentralized tech. As institutions and major corporations such as Microstrategy and Square buy bitcoin and adopt blockchain into their ecosystems, the less likely the U.S. government will try to hamper the technology by way of onerous regulations. Already a total of $10 billion in corporate funds has been invested in bitcoin, and this is just the ice cube on the iceberg. Some members of the SEC have even publicly stated that this technology must be allowed to flourish, so it is likely they will be mindful of how they handle regulating the space. The CEO of Microstrategy gave an illuminating interview on his decision to invest nearly half a billion dollars in bitcoin.And then after Thursday’s PayPal news, every major bank is having a meeting about how to support bitcoin. The smart ones realize it is no longer optional and realize they should support bitcoin. Institutional portfolio managers can now invest in companies that work with or hold bitcoin. Just as Microstrategy opened the floodgates into corporate treasuries as the total now just passed $10 billion when it was just $425 million last month, Paypal has opened the floodgates into traditional finance.Generational DifferencesMeanwhile, younger generations often are the demographic that represents the majority of those working away developing the technology, which encompasses all things bleeding edge. This was true at the 1900 world’s fair and is just as true now. The younger embraced new technologies in 1900, while the older feared it. A generational difference often exists when it comes to understanding thus being comfortable with technologies that start out as bleeding-edge then eventually become mainstream with mass adoption.This fear is born in part from the relative discomfort of not being born into it. Kids that grew up with a PC and email are more likely to use it than their grandparents. Likewise, those that grow up with mobile phones can easily utilize numerous apps while older generations are less comfortable or fluid with such platforms. Of course, I’m not saying this applies to everyone, but the generalization holds true. I would add that The Virtue of Selfish Investing’s viewing and reading audience regardless of age, tend to be, on balance, more forward-thinking, so age be damned. Just as with racism, ageism is just as wrong. Better to avoid letting superficialities get in the way of assessing a person’s character and abilities.(͡:B ͜ʖ ͡:B)https://twitter.com/thecapital_iohttps://medium.com/media/3b6b127891c5c8711ad105e61d6cc81f/hrefPayPal & Microstrategy Bridge the Digital Divide was originally published in The Capital on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
Check out our new platform 🚀 https://thecapital.io/PayPal`s Decision Increased The Company`s Shares By Over 5%, And Drove Up Bitcoin`s Price Above $13,000PayPal, one of the biggest financial services providers announced that its U.S-based customers would be able to hold, buy, sell, and use various cryptocurrencies, exposing them to a 26-million merchant base. The move is also anticipated to encourage mass domestic adoption and skyrocket cryptocurrencies into mainstream usage.At least for now, PayPal, and later in 2021 its Venmo subsidiary, would operate with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and Bitcoin Cash. The well-established crypto operator, Paxos, will work side by side with PayPal to provide support on all crypto-related payments and transactions due to the provisional license that PayPal received from The New York State Department of Financial Services. Paxos will support PayPal`s operations until PayPal obtains a full license.Starting the roll-out in a couple of weeks, PayPal would initially allow buying, selling, and holding cryptocurrencies, with plans for merchant usage from early 2021. The company also disclosed that the list of supported cryptocurrencies would expand, as well as additional countries will be eligible to receive crypto support.The new services effectively put PayPal as one of the largest U.S.-based companies providing crypto payments. Also, the added crypto support would help the company prepare for new digital currencies like CBDCs.“We are working with central banks and thinking of all forms of digital currencies and how PayPal can play a role,” President and Chief Executive Dan Schulman said in an interview.However, fintech companies like Square Inc. and Robinhood already allowed users to buy and sell cryptocurrencies, but PayPal’s massive customer base may shift the way cryptocurrencies are acquired and used, as the company has 346 million active accounts. Also, PayPal managed to process over $222 billion in payments just throughout the time boundaries of Q2 of 2020.Meanwhile, PayPal’s shares skyrocketed to an all-time high shortly after the announcement. As of press time, PayPal has a $250 billion market capitalization with a 100% yearly market cap growth. Also, PayPal recorded a 20% share price increase, while Nasdaq Composite only made a 20% market cap increase and a 7.3% price boost. Bitcoin price also went up and surpassed the $13,000 level for first time since July, and only for third-time since the all time high from late 2017.https://twitter.com/thecapital_iohttps://medium.com/media/3b6b127891c5c8711ad105e61d6cc81f/hrefPayPal Finally Embraces Cryptocurrencies After Obtaining A New York License was originally published in The Capital on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Being indifferent to these two matters after knowing who they are and what they can doCheck out our new platform 🚀 https://thecapital.io/Feelings and emotions can get in the way of level-headed trading. Strong emotional reactions can lead us into decisions that we do not normally do under normal circumstances. But when we get involved too much in bad news headlines that are putting down our investments., we forget the fundamentals. After finding out that we have been played, it might be too late to get out.FUDFUD is the abbreviation of negative sentiments called Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt, that affects the value of coins, companies, projects, or even the entire market for that matter. FUD is so powerful that any sound investment made can turn bitter in the blink of an eye after coming full circle. Sometimes FUD can start with forgettable misunderstandings, some legit concerns, or it can go as far as a manipulated sentiment played out on mass or social media. The bad news that was spread, unsubstantiated, and opinionated at best, can drop a coin price.FOMOFOMO means Fear of Missing Out. It is a more personal impulsive act of being afraid to be left out in the cold by not being able to participate in something that others are enjoying. FOMO makes your decision-making irrational by buying an already expensive coin or token which you are anticipating of still shooting up, or holding on in the dip after scooping gains and lose them in the end. FOMO is all about beating a deadline, or jumping on an opportunity before it vanishes, or taking bargain prices without turning to fundamentals and charts. The haste can painfully turn to waste.FUD and FOMO are fear-based emotional factors that can really interfere with objective trading among investors in the crypto and other financial markets. Arm yourselves with continuing education and training to combat these trading errors. Major points include:Sticking to the fundamentals and the charts. If your basis for decisions is a good-looking chart and the presence of fundamentals, then you need not fear. Keep your emotions out of it.Identify FUD and proceed with caution. React accordingly if you see that the coin price is sliding in an irrational manner. Set your stop-loss and get ready to buy yourself back in on the dip.These are two general advice that may be applied in situations when you feel there is a need for it. In the end, you call the shots when you are either in a long or short trading strategy.ConclusionFUD and FOMO are trading schemes which happen every now and then especially to newbies and unsuspecting traders. Both seasoned investing personalities and unknown trading actors can spread seemingly truthful assumptions regarding your investment enough to affect market prices. Once small fries are biting, cheap chips are there for their own picking. Do not fall prey. Avoid FOMO and FUD altogether. Strong character can be developed with training, education, research, and getting your facts right well enough to control blind emotions on your way to becoming a resilient investor.Get it right the first time with your digital investments.
