  • October - BTC and Litecoin had a very good month and crypto as a whole did much better than traditional markets.
  • Overall since Jan. 2018 - Bitcoin still far ahead. And, for the first time since I started this experiment back in Jan. 2018, I'm happy to report: BITCOIN HAS BROKEN EVEN!!!
  • Combining all three three years, Top Ten cryptos is tied with the S&P if I'd taken a similar approach.

Month Thirty Four – Down 74%

2018 Top Ten Summary for October
After an all-red September, it’s nice to see a bit of green this month. Thanks mainly to Bitcoin, the 2018 Top Ten Portfolio finished October with modest gains overall.
But, STOP THE PRESS, what is that!??! Green in the “Total % Change” column!?!? Yes indeed: for the first time in 34 monthly updates, I’m happy to announce that BTC ended October worth more than the price I paid for it on the 31st of December, 2017. Although only up +4% overall, it’s been a long road: this small 2018 Top Ten victory is to be celebrated.

Question of the month:

In October, this global payment service announced it will support cryptocurrency buying, selling, and shopping through its platform.

A) Paypal
B) Square

Ranking and October Winners and Losers

Rank of 2018 Portfolio - 40% of cryptos are drop outs
Not much movement this month, a bit strange for the 2018 Top Ten Portfolio. Only three cryptos shifted positions in October: NEM’s Top Twenty hopes seem to be fading fast (it dropped from #22 to #24); XLM picked up one spot (#18 to #17); and, much to the relief of long time crypto-ers with a soft spot for the silver to BTC’s gold, Litecoin was able to stop its freefall, rebounding back into the Top Ten nicely, picking up four spots (#12 to #8). Welcome back LTC.
Drop outs: After thirty-four months of this experiment 40% of the cryptos that started 2018 in the Top Ten have dropped out. NEM, Dash, IOTA, and Stellar have been replaced by Binance Coin, Tether, LINK, and most recently, DOT.
October Winners – For the second month in a row, this month’s W goes to Bitcoin, up +25% for the month. Litecoin finishes the month in second place, up 17% and climbing back into the Top Ten.
October Losers – For the second month in a row, this month’s L goes to NEM, down -16%. IOTA finished down -11%, the second worst performer of the month.
For the overly competitive nerds, below is a tally of the winners of the first 34 months of the 2018 Top Ten Crypto Index Fund Experiment. Bitcoin still has the most monthly wins (9) and Cardano in second place with 6 monthly wins. With another poor performance in October, NEM now has 8 monthly losses.
Every crypto has at least one monthly win and Bitcoin is unique as the only cryptocurrency that hasn’t lost a month yet since January 2018.
Ws and Ls - One coin to rule them all

Overall update – BTC far ahead and breaks even, ETH in distant second place. Dash in last place.

So here we are: point break even. On the 31st of December, 2017, I bought $100 worth of BTC (0.008) at $13,170. Nearly three years later that same 0.008 is worth $13,665. Although only 4%, it’s a symbolic victory and one that’s been a long time coming. The initial investment of $100 thirty-three months ago is now worth about $83. A distant second place, Ethereum is down -45% since January 2018.
At this point in the 2018 Top Ten Experiment, Dash is at the bottom. It has lost -93%. The initial $100 invested in Dash 34 months ago is now worth $6.52.
The 2018 Portfolio welcomed LTC back Top Ten in October. September 2020 was the first time since I started the experiment back in January 2018 that Litecoin had fallen out of the Top Ten.

Total Market Cap for the entire cryptocurrency sector:

Total market cap - back over the $400B mark for the first time in over 2.5 years
The crypto market gained about $50B in finished October over the psychologically important $400B mark, a level we haven’t seen since the end of April 2018.

Bitcoin dominance:

BitDom - growing
After a few months of dipping, BitDom shot back up to 63.1% in October. A big move, but for context, it was up over 68% earlier in 2020.
For even more context: since the beginning of the experiment, the range of Bitcoin dominance has been quite wide: we saw a high of 70% BitDom in September 2019 and a low of 33% BitDom in February 2018.

Overall return on $1,000 investment since January 1st, 2018:

2018 Top Ten ROI
The 2018 Top Ten Portfolio gained about $25 bucks in October. Despite BTC breaking even, the portfolio overall is still struggling: if I cashed out today, the $1000 initial investment would return about $264, down -74% from January 2018.
Down -74% sounds bad (and it is), but the overall direction lately has been encouraging and a nice break from the negative eighties. Here’s a look at the ROI over the life of the experiment, month by month, for some context:

2018 Top Ten Monthly ROI - Red, red, red
The absolute bottom was -88% back in January 2019.
So the Top Ten Cryptos of 2018 are down -76%. What about the 2019 and 2020 Top Tens? Let’s take a look:
So overall? Taking the three portfolios together, here’s the bottom bottom bottom line:
After a $3000 investment in the 2018, 2019, and 2020 Top Ten Cryptocurrencies, my combined portfolios are worth $‭3,537‬ ($264+ $1,660 +$1,613).
That’s up about +18% for the three combined portfolios, compared to +11% last month.
Here’s a table to help visualize:
Combined 2018, 2019, 2020 ROI
That’s a +18% (actually +17.9%) gain by investing $1k on whichever cryptos happened to be in the Top Ten on January 1st for three straight years.
But surely you’d do better if you went all in on one crypto, right?
Depends on your choice. Let’s take a look:
Three year club: BTC and ETH tied
Only five cryptos have started in the Top Ten for all three years: BTC, ETH, XRP, BCH, and LTC. Knowing what we know now, which one would have been best to go all in on?
As of this month, it’s basically a tie between BTC and ETH. Both are up +121%, (although BTC is technically $21 ahead of ETH).
So: with $3,000 USD, dropped in $1k chunks on January 1st three times in a row since New Year’s Day 2018, you would be up +121%, by going all in on either BTC or ETH.
The worst choice? At this point in the experiment, that would be XRP, down -32%.

Comparison to S&P 500:

I’m also tracking the S&P 500 as part of the experiment to have a comparison point with other popular investments options. The S&P 500 Index continued its fall from an all time high in August. It ended October up +22% since January 2018.

Monthly S&P since January 2018
The initial $1k investment into crypto on January 1st, 2018 would have been worth about $1220 had it been redirected to the S&P.
But what if I took the same invest-$1,000-on-January-1st-of-each-year approach with the S&P 500 that I’ve been documenting through the Top Ten Crypto Experiments? Here are the numbers:
  • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2018 = $1220 today
  • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2019 = $1300 today
  • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2020 = $1010 today
Taken together, here’s the bottom bottom bottom line for a similar approach with the S&P:
After three $1,000 investments into an S&P 500 index fund in January 2018, 2019, and 2020, my portfolio would be worth $3,530.
That is up +17.6% since January 2018. Compared to a +17.9% gain of the combined Top Ten Crypto Experiment Portfolios. You can compare against five individual coins (BTC, ETH, XRP, BCH, and LTC) by using the table above if you want.
Gentlemen and lady (hello lady, I see you back there) we have a tie.
Well, not quite a tie, crypto is up .3% so crypto gets the win:
Three year S&P vs. Top Ten Crypto Experiments Combined ROI
That’s seven monthly victories for the S&P vs. three monthly victories for crypto. The largest gap so far was a 22% difference in favor of the S&P in June.

Conclusion:

October saw a bit of divergence between crypto and the S&P: crypto up, S&P down. That separation is nice to see when it often seems that crypto moves in tandem with traditional markets. Two more months left in the year. What more will 2020 throw at us? And how will crypto and traditional markets respond?
Thanks for reading and for supporting the experiment. I hope you’ve found it helpful. I continue to be committed to seeing this process through and reporting along the way. Feel free to reach out with any questions and stay tuned for progress reports. Keep an eye out for my parallel projects where I repeat the experiment twice, purchasing another $1000 ($100 each) of two new sets of Top Ten cryptos as of January 1st, 2019 then again on January 1st, 2020.

And the Answer is…

A) Paypal
Paypal announced in October that it will allow customers to buy, sell, and hold Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. Customers will also be able to pay with crypto at 26 million merchants on its network starting in early 2021.

Month Thirty Three – Down 76%

2018 Top Ten Summary for September
After a rough start to September, crypto spent the month trying in vain to claw back ground. While a few coins rebounded quite a bit from the monthly lows, most ended up finishing the month significantly down. Out of the 2018 Top Ten group, Bitcoin lost the least, down -8% in September. NEM followed it’s winning August (yes, you read that right) with the poorest performance, down -26%.

Question of the month:

Which cryptocurrency exchange won approval to create America’s first crypto bank in September?

A) Binance B) Binance.us C) Kraken D) Coinbase
Scroll down for the answer.

Ranking and September Winners and Losers

Rank of 2018 Portfolio - 50% no longer in Top Ten
A lot of shuffling in September. On the upside, Bitcoin Cash and Cardano gained one place each landing at #5 and #10 respectively. Cardano gets special mention for re-entering the Top Ten.
Heading the wrong direction were IOTA, NEM, Dash, and Stellar each falling two or three spots.
The big story though, for long time crypto watchers, was the ejection of Litecoin from the Top Ten, down five places from #7 to #12 in just one month. For some context, Litecoin’s absence from the Top Ten is a Top Ten Experiment first. It is also the first time since CoinMarketCap has tracked crypto rankings that Litecoin has not been in the Top Ten.
Drop outs: After thirty-three months of this experiment 50% of the cryptos that started 2018 in the Top Ten have dropped out. NEM, Litecoin, Dash, IOTA, and Stellar have been replaced by Binance Coin, Tether, BSV, LINK, and most recently, DOT.
September Winners – Although it lost -8% of its value, this month’s W goes to Bitcoin. ADA gets second place, down -15% and climbing back into the Top Ten.
September Losers – As most probably expected after an extremely out of character victory last month, NEM came back down to earth in September, bigly, down -26%. Litecoin finished right behind, down -24% and dropping out of the Top Ten.
For the overly competitive, below is a tally of the winners of the first 33 months of the 2018 Top Ten Crypto Index Fund Experiment. Bitcoin still has the most monthly wins (8) and Cardano in second place with 6 monthly wins. With its poor September performance, NEM now has 7 monthly losses.
Ws and Ls - One clear winner
Every crypto has at least one monthly win and Bitcoin is unique as the only cryptocurrency that hasn’t lost a month yet since January 2018.

Overall update – BTC solidly in the lead, followed by ETH. Dash in the basement, LTC drops out of the Top Ten.

Even though BTC took a bit of a detour on its way back to break-even point, it is still far ahead of the field, down -17% since January 2018. The initial investment of $100 thirty-three months ago is now worth about $83. Second place Ethereum is down -49% over the same time period.
At this point in the 2018 Top Ten Experiment, Dash is at the bottom. It is currently worth $70.49, down from a January 1st, 2018 starting price of over $1,000. That’s a loss of -93%. The initial $100 invested in Dash 33 months ago is now worth $6.77.
The big story this month is LTC’s departure from the Top Ten, the first time since I started the experiment back in January 2018. Whether or not it will eventually fend off the new generation of coins remains to be seen, but it certainly is noteworthy to have one of the most well known and long standing cryptos drop out of the Top Ten. Consider pouring one out for Litecoin.

Total Market Cap for the entire cryptocurrency sector:

The crypto market lost over $35B in September and is down -39% since January 2018. The value of the overall crypto market is near where it was in August of this year, just a few months back. As painful as the beginning of the month was, looking at a table like this helps with perspective, especially if you’re panic prone.

Bitcoin dominance:

After steadily dipping for months, BitDom increased a bit in September, up to 57.5%.
For some context: since the beginning of the experiment, the range of Bitcoin dominance has been quite wide: we saw a high of 70% BitDom in September 2019 and a low of 33% BitDom in February 2018.

Overall return on $1,000 investment since January 1st, 2018:

The 2018 Top Ten Portfolio lost -$50 this month. If I cashed out today, the $1000 initial investment would return about $238, down -76% from January 2018.
September broke an encouraging upward trend, but at least the portfolio is taking a break from the -80% range. Here’s a look at the ROI over the life of the experiment, month by month, for some context:
33 Monthly ROIs on Top Ten since Jan 2018
The absolute bottom was -88% back in January 2019.
So the Top Ten Cryptos of 2018 are down -76%. What about the 2019 and 2020 Top Tens? Let’s take a look:
So overall? Taking the three portfolios together, here’s the bottom bottom bottom line:
After a $3000 investment in the 2018, 2019, and 2020 Top Ten Cryptocurrencies, my combined portfolios are worth $‭3,340‬ ($238+ $1,538 +$1,564).
That’s up about +11% for the three combined portfolios, compared to +31% last month.
Here’s a table to help visualize:
Combined ROI on $3k over 3 years - UP +11%
That’s a +11% gain by investing $1k on whichever cryptos happened to be in the Top Ten on January 1st for three straight years.
But surely you’d do better if you went all in on one crypto, right?
Depends on your choice. Let’s take a look:

ETH for the win
Only five cryptos have started in the Top Ten for all three years: BTC, ETH, XRP, BCH, and LTC (unless Litecoin can make a comeback by the 1st of Jan. 2021, it’s not going to make the four year club!). Knowing what we know now, which one would have been best to go all in on?
Ethereum, by a pretty good margin: the initial $3k would be up +104%, worth $6,118 today. The worst choice of a basket to put all your eggs in at this point in the experiment is XRP, down by almost one third.

Comparison to S&P 500:

I’m also tracking the S&P 500 as part of the experiment to have a comparison point with other popular investments options. The S&P 500 Index fell from an all time high in August, but is currently up +26% since January 2018.
S&P since Jan. 2018
The initial $1k investment into crypto on January 1st, 2018 would have been worth about $1260 had it been redirected to the S&P.
But what if I took the same invest-$1,000-on-January-1st-of-each-year approach with the S&P 500 that I’ve been documenting through the Top Ten Crypto Experiments? Here are the numbers:
  • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2018 = $1260 today
  • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2019 = $1350 today
  • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2020 = $1050 today
Taken together, here’s the bottom bottom bottom line for a similar approach with the S&P:
After three $1,000 investments into an S&P 500 index fund in January 2018, 2019, and 2020, my portfolio would be worth $3,660.
That is up +22% since January 2018, compared to a +11% gain of the combined Top Ten Crypto Experiment Portfolios.
That’s an 11% swing in favor of the S&P 500 and breaks a two month mini-streak of wins from the Top Ten crypto portfolios.
S&P vs. Top Ten Crypto Experiments
That’s seven monthly victories for the S&P vs. two monthly victories for crypto. The largest gap so far was a 22% difference in favor of the S&P in June.

Conclusion:

September was a tough month for both traditional and crypto markets. What’s next for the rest of 2020? More volatility is no doubt to come as we enter the last quarter of a truly unpredictable and exhausting year. Buckle up.
Thanks for reading and for supporting the experiment. I hope you’ve found it helpful. I continue to be committed to seeing this process through and reporting along the way. Feel free to reach out with any questions and stay tuned for progress reports. Keep an eye out for my parallel projects where I repeat the experiment twice, purchasing another $1000 ($100 each) of two new sets of Top Ten cryptos as of January 1st, 2019 then again on January 1st, 2020.

And the Answer is…

C) Kraken
According to an official announcement in September, Kraken is “the first digital asset company in U.S. history to receive a bank charter recognized under federal and state law.”

Repeated Experiment: I bought $1k of Top10 Cryptos on 01/01/2019. Result? UP +43%

EXPERIMENT - Tracking 2019 Top Ten Cryptocurrencies – Month Seventeen - UP 43%

Full blog post with all the tables here.

tl;dr - This is the 17th monthly update on the 2019 Top Ten Experiment. Ethereum up the most in May, plus got a shout out from J.K. Rowling, so it obviously won the month. Overall, BTC in first place since January 2019, BSV in second place. Half of the 2019 Top Ten Portfolio is up at least +50%. XRP is worst performing. Total $3k (3 x $1k) investments the 2018, 2019, and 2020 Top Ten are up +3.5%, but similar approach with US stocks market would have yielded +10%.

The Experiment:

Instead of hypothetically tracking cryptos, I made an actual $1000 investment, $100 in each of the Top 10 cryptocurrencies by market cap on the 1st of January 2018. The result? The 2018 Top Ten portfolio ended 2018 down 85%, my $1000 worth only $150. I then repeated the experiment on the 1st of January 2019 with the new 2019 Top Ten cryptos, then again in 2020.
Think of the Top Ten Experiments as a lazy man’s Index Fund (no weighting or rebalancing), less technical, but hopefully still a proxy for the market as a whole – or at the very least an interesting snapshot of the 2018, 2019, and 2020 crypto space. I am trying to keep this project simple and accessible for beginners and those looking to get into crypto but maybe not quite ready to jump in yet. I try not to take sides or analyze, but rather attempt to report in a detached manner letting the numbers speak for themselves.
This is not investing advice – as a matter of fact, the vast majority of the reports will show that the Top Ten approach under performs other strategies. This experiment is designed to be documentary in nature, describing a specific period in cryptocurrency history.

The Rules:

Buy $100 of each the Top 10 cryptocurrencies on January 1st, 2018, 2019, and 2020. Hold only. No selling. No trading. Report monthly.

Month Seventeen – UP 43%

Unlike April’s all green month, May was more mixed. That said, the gains outweighed the losses this month in the 2019 Top Ten Portfolio.

Question of the month:

In May, Reddit launched two Ethereum-based tokens on the Cryptocurrency and FortNiteBR subreddits. What are the Cryptocurrency token called?
A) Moons
B) Bricks
C) Satoshis
D) Cryptos
Scroll down for the answer.

Ranking and March Winners and Losers

Besides Stellar (down two spots to #13) and Tron (down one from #16 to #17) every other crypto was locked in place.
Speaking of Stellar and Tron, they are still the only two cryptos to have dropped out of the 2019 Top Ten since January 1st, 2019. They have been replaced by Binance Coin and Tezos.
May WinnersEthereum ended the month up +16% and got a shout out from J.K. Rowling, so it obviously won May. BTC came in a close second this month, up +14%.
May Losers – A tight battle for the basement this month with BSV (down -3.9%) edging out XRP (down -3.7%) for the bottom spot.
For nerds those keeping score, here is tally of which coins have the most monthly wins and loses during the first seventeen months of the 2019 Top Ten Experiment: Tether is still in the lead with five monthly victories followed by BSV in second place with three. BSV also holds the most monthly losses, finishing last in six out of seventeen months.

Overall update – BTC increases lead over second place BSV, XRP still worst performing

Ahead until just last month, BSV lost a lot of ground to BTC in May. Bitcoin is now up +168% since January 2019 compared to BSV‘s +116% gain. That initial $100 investment in BTC? Now worth $273.
As was the case last month, 50% of the 2019 Top Ten cryptos are up at least +50% since the beginning of the experiment.
At the other end, XRP continues to struggle, now down -41% since January 2019.

Total Market Cap for the entire cryptocurrency sector:

The overall crypto market added about $35B in May, and is now near August 2019 levels. It is up +123% since January 2019.

Bitcoin dominance:

BitDom was steady again in May. This marks the third straight month it’s been stuck at around 65% For context, the range since the beginning of the experiment in January 2019 has been between 50%-70%.

Overall return on investment since January 1st, 2019:

The 2019 Top Ten Portfolio gained about $65 in May. After the initial $1000 investment, the 2019 group of cryptos is worth $1,431, up about +43%.
Here’s a look at the ROI over the life of the first seventeen months of the experiment, month by month:
Almost completely green for the 2019 Top Ten, a welcome change from the all red table you’ll see in the 2018 experiment. As you can see, every month except the first month ends in positive territory. At the lowest point, the 2019 Top Ten portfolio was down -9%, at the highest point, up +114% (May 2019).
How does the 2019 Top Ten Experiment compare to the parallel projects?
Taking the three portfolios together, here’s the bottom bottom bottom line:
After a $3000 investment in the 2018, 2019, and 2020 Top Ten Cryptocurrencies, my portfolios are worth $3,104‬.
That’s up about +3.5% for the combined portfolios. Better than a few months ago (aka the zombie apocalypse) where it was down -24%, but not yet back at January (+13%) or February (+6%) levels.
How does this compare to traditional markets?

How does the 2019 Top Ten portfolio compare US stock market?

Excellent question, I’m glad you asked. And you’re in luck, I’m also tracking the S&P 500 as part of my experiment to have a comparison point with other popular investments options. Despite the fact that the world seemed to be on fire, May 2020 saw the continued rebound of the stock market. It’s now up +22% since the start of the 2019 Experiment.
As a reminder (or just scroll up) the 2019 Top Ten portfolio is returning +43% over the same time period, which is about double the S&P 500.
The initial $1k investment I put into crypto would be worth $1,220 had it been redirected to the S&P 500 in January 2019.
But what if I took the same world’s-slowest-dollar-cost-averaging/$1,000-per-year-in-January approach with the S&P 500? It would yield the following:
  • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2018: +$140
  • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2019: +$220
  • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2020: -$50
Taken together, here’s the bottom bottom bottom line for a similar approach with the S&P:
After three $1,000 investments into an S&P 500 index fund in January 2018, 2019, and 2020, my portfolio would be worth $3,310.
That $3,310 is up over+10% since January 2018, compared to the $3,104 value (+3.5%) of the combined Top Ten Crypto Experiment Portfolios.
That’s about a 7% difference in favor of the stock market. Last month, there was only a 3% difference, the month before, the gap was 13% (all in favor of the stock market).

Implications/Observations:

The difference between the 2019 Top Ten crypto group and the overall crypto market is stark. Since January 2019, the overall market has gained +123% compared to the 2019 Top Ten crypto group which has gained +43%. This is an absolutely massive 80% gap. A +43% return is solid compared to the stock market, but it also implies that an investor would have done much better picking different cryptos or investing in the entire market instead of focusing only on the Top Ten. There are a few examples of this approach outperforming the overall market in this 2019 Top Ten Crypto Experiment, but the cases are few and far between.
The 2018 Top Ten portfolio, on the other hand, has never outperformed the overall market, at least not in the first twenty-nine months of that Experiment.
For the most recent 2020 Top Ten group, the opposite had been true: the 2020 Top Ten had easily outperformed the overall market 100% of the time…until this month.

Conclusion:

The BTC halving event came and went in May and crypto markets shrugged. As the world continues to change because of COVID-19, what will be crypto’s place when we finally emerge on the other side?
Final word: Please take care of yourselves, your families, and your communities. Stay safe out there.
Thanks for reading and for supporting the experiment. I hope you’ve found it helpful. I continue to be committed to seeing this process through and reporting along the way.

My story with BTCP

Hello! I first heard about BTCP in mid February, a fork between btc & zcl. After seeing the price of ZCL @ $200 I got a "good" entry point @ 900K sats (≈ $90) with half of my portfolio, 5 ZCL. Next morning I was on my way to work and I spotted it at 700K sats and I went all in, had a total 11.8 ZCL I thought in just trade the fork's news and sell it before the snapshot, but when the price went up 50% I decided to hold ZCL post fork and get some BTCP thinking it would be a great privacy coin with Bitcoin branding.
The news around fork time were awesome, everyone was predicting the price between $200-$500 and I thought it was a good coin to double up my portfolio in a week or two.
BTCP got listed in Nanex and Tradesatoshi, the price was awful to sell so I bought every dip I could during a month @ 475k, 340k, 320k, 300k and 200K sats. I reduced my entry point to 410K sats and I had 85 BTCP!!
HitBTC was around the corner and the price finally started going up to 530K sats. I sold 27 BTCP to pay some bills (yes, I fucked it pretty bad and I put money I should have NOT invested)
Luckily I was in profit when I sold those 27 but to be honest I was sure that if gets listed in Hitbtc soon it would go back to the 1M sats area so as soon as I got my pay-check from work, I bought some more at 500K and 410K sats.
At that moment (1st of May) I had a total of 80 BTCP, Net cost around $2700 (Lots for me)
Next day after i bought @ 410k sats I saw Hitbtc had BTCP deposits open. I was quick enough to make a little deposit of 10 BTCP, they closed deposits in like 20 minutes but I had my BTCP deposit address so I transferred all my BTCP.
Next day Hitbtc open BTCP trading and luckily I was in front of my computer, I placed an order of 10 BTCP at 0.029999999 and it got filled in like 2 minutes!! Yeehaaa I was so happy. I kept placing more orders of 10BTCP at 0.029 0.028 0.027 etc.. none got filled and I stopped @ 0.007 as I thought that would be the real price few hours later.
Later on the price keeps going down to 450K - 500K sats so with the profits I've just made I bought 70 more @ 500K and 400k sats thinking it would "moon" from there. Imagine my face one hour later when the price dumps to 1600 sats and I don’t have a single sat to trade :(
Three weeks later (end of May) I sold 40 BTCP @ 320k sats to make another trade which end it up a day later in 80% profit :) And BTCP was 10% down, so I bought 44 back. I kept trading with the profits between CPT and DBET making around 20-30% profit in 2 weeks.
Mid June BTCP price drops to 200K sats and I bought 50 more with part of the profits from the previous trades.
10 Days later price drops again to 150K sats for few minutes and I managed to buy 55 BTCP @ 150k and 160K sats. Price went straight up to 200K sats and didn't sell any as I thought it would recover from there.
Last week price went down slowly to 160K sats and I put more fiat in and bought 40 BTCP. Having a total of 290 BTCP
290 BTCP!! Unbelievable!!! I would never thought of having that many.
So now I am holding a bag of 290 BTCP with a loss of 0.15 BTC but even in $$ and I’m not even mad. Thinking if I didn’t trade my initial 80 BTCP I would still have those worth now $800
For the last month I’ve been researching about economics quite a lot and I finally opened my eyes. I see BTC replacing fiat in few/several years and all of those thinking $1M per BTC, are completely right, 1 BTC = $1.000.000 is equal to 1 sat = 1 cent.
We live in a world where money is controlled by 2 or 3 families and they can print/fake as many as they want. We live in a huge debt, where money does not longer exist. Imagine every single person cashing out their money form banks. The system would collapse and eventually it will.
Going back to BTCP I think is the sleeping giant, once they finish the rebase and merchants start accepting it we’ll see a change in the price. (Binance listing would help too)
Yesterday I downloaded the full node wallet and after testing some features I can tell this coin has a huge potential. Fast, Scalable, Decentralised and 100% Private. Hopefully they add all those new options in the electrum wallet soon!
After all this explained I want to tell you guys I’m very bullish in this project, even if the price has gone down a lot and I’m 90% down from my very first investment (ZCL) I don’t really care because I see this coin surpassing it’s own limits.
Just be Patient guys, just be Safe, just be PRIVATE!!
Have a good Monday everyone!! :)

The Crypto King Report January 12th: The Kingdom is Bleeding!!!! but FUD Attacks Are Followed by All Time Highs (3x in 2 months!), Calendar Conferences, New Moon Shot, 2 ICOS, January Safe Plays!

UPDATE: Although there will not be 6am "Moonshot" tomorrow morning there will be a 6am announcement I would highly recommend staying tuned in for on Discord! I've found a coin that is hitting a MAJOR exchange in the next 72 hours and the price is extremely depressed from the FUD attacks and market corrections that have occurred the last 48hrs. I would highly recommend getting involved in this coin at 6am EST even if it is only a 48hr hold. Because I am not expecting this to go up 10x in the next month it is not a "moonshot" for tomorrow but instead a coin I feel will have a 50-100% correction in 48hrs or less as it is added to a new exchange. Stay tuned tomorrow at 6am EST on Discord to see the recommendation. Once it hits the big exchange the value will no longer be there, the time to get in is tomorrow. This may be solely a 24-48hr play but should net 50-100% in returns in this very short period of time. We weren't going to have a moonshot for tomorrow as I needed sleep, but instead we are going to have a extra special coin! An immediate % gainer, not one we have to wait weeks for! See you all at 6am EST on Discord :)!
The Crypto King Report January 12th: The Kingdom is Bleeding!!!! but FUD Attacks Are Followed by All Time Highs (3x in 2 months!), Calendar Conferences, New Moon Shot, 2 ICOS, January Safe Plays!
I appreciate all my loyal followers! I am trying to build a social media presence and would love if you followed me on Instagram and Twitter as well! For tips and strategy hours before being posted to the message boards follow on Instagram: JaketheCryptoKing and Twitter: JbtheCryptoKing. And now on Discord: https://discord.gg/qTjQp8W (join the group to reach me directly and see posts early and moonshots at 6am EST when available!).
If the title is a foreign language to you join Discord and read the Crypto-101 channel. This report can be found directly here: https://discord.gg/82kFuSz
Today is an exciting day as the Kingdom has been purged of weak hands and FUD attacks. Our own news services provided what seemed to be the largest FUD attack in crypto history 48hrs ago. The markets are yet to completely recover but there is good news. “The sun will come out tomorrow.” I don’t actually mean with certainty tomorrow will be a green day, but what I do know is what the upcoming Calendar for the next 2 months looks like. The conferences start January 16th with the London Summit Bitcoin Workshop. January 18th we have Miami’s Blockchain conference, which I will be attending. January 19th kicks off London’s Blockchain Week. January 25th Manilla is hosting a huge blockchain event, that SAME day the U.S. and China are cohosting a blockchain conference (NEO and many others will be presenting) in San Francisco. January 31st is DevCon which NEO will be at again, along with many more coins. This next month literally has 1 or 2 major conferences in a major city every single weekend. These intentional FUD attacks were a quick way for whales (the people who own news agencies) to scoop up cheap shares leading into the biggest 7-12 weeks in blockchain conference history. The sheer amount of publicity surrounding a conference every weekend will drive the total market cap above 1 trillion (in my opinion).
I haven’t even started talking about February but we will leave that for another time.
The market will trend North as the conferences approach setting new ATHs in the next very short period of time. I cannot predict the future (or specifically which day this will occur) but what I do know is people do not pay $1000 (per ticket!) to sit at a convention unless they are truly big investors looking to get involved. There should be a flood of money coming into the crypto space following each conference between the attendees and the publicity.
Moonshots are currently selected from KuCoin to use KuCoin make sure to have an account: Referral link for KuCoin: https://www.kucoin.com/#/?r=1cH1M
Moonshots have had an incredible run and some have even managed to weather the storm associated with the most recent FUD attacks. DBC and SNOV have had nice runs in the last 48hrs even among a sea of red. Make sure to stay diversified as you never want to have “all your eggs in one basket” in investing. Do not try to pick which coin will go up 500%, pick 5 of the 10 moonshots you believe in and have researched and invest evenly. My moonshot for today… CAG.
Moonshot Pick: CAG (Change Bank)
The name speaks for itself, Change Bank, they intend to be the first truly decentralized crypto bank. CAG has a market cap of approximately $50million which makes it one of the lowest market cap coins on KuCoin. As the altcoins begin to pick up steam again and as new traders flood to exchanges like KuCoin, those with the smallest market caps and cheapest shares will be flooded with new $$. From a technical standpoint the chart shows a solid sell wall at 10040 Satoshis while the price was at 8700 Satoshis this morning when I recommended it on Discord and is currently around 9100 Satoshis. This leaves room for a 12% rise in value solely based on Sell Wall technical analysis. There is much more to CAG then analyzing the charts. It was trading 50% higher less than 48hrs prior (lovely correction the market had), making the coin currently ‘on sale.’ With no negative news besides poor market conditions CAG did not deserve a 50% drop in coin value. I expect CAG to quickly approach its prior ATH a minimum of a 50% gain once the market corrects in the coming days. It would not surprise me if even in these red days we get the 12% gain reaching the 10040 Satoshi sell wall (possibly today). I do not recommend day trading moonshots but this may be a nice way to pull a 12% profit without worrying about CAG long term. I am in CAG for the long haul as I see a minimum of 50% growth opportunity in the next week with the possibility of this being a 5-10xer once the market corrects and a new exchange is chosen.
From a technical analysis CAG looks ripe for an immediate trend North. Analyzing their actual concept, team, wallet, roadmap and Q1, it is even more impressive. Their Q1 road map coupled with their wallet make this a coin that should be well above the $100million market cap as any of its competitors already are. This coin is on sale for no other reason than the market FUD attacks which will correct very shortly. A strong team, a great roadmap, a concept built for the future of crypto banking, and a technical analysis that shows a major correction are why CAG is the Moonshot of the Day!
Solely because CAG is the Moonshot of the Day does not mean 100% of your funds should be in it. I hold all moonshots, never selling an entire stake as that will be the time your coin does a 40x. I rotate profits around often to the most underperforming coins from the ones that are outperforming. This takes monitoring but with a low cost of transacting can allow you to extrapolate many little gains throughout the day.
HST, DBC, ELIX, SNOV, BNTY, KCS, DRGN, PURA, and EVX were my prior moonshot picks! Most are up between 100% and 600% depending on where you bought them. If you do not believe me click my name and go back 10 days in my posts, you will see I called DRGN when it was $.7 and KCS when it was $3.00, while KCS is now $19 and DRGN is over $4. Moonshots are not going to moon while the market is bleeding. We all need to be patient, with a strong set of cojones, to allow the moons the required time to take off. I feel the same losses all of you feel, I am just accustomed to them because when these FUD attacks occur, 2 weeks later your portfolio will be at its ATH (all time high). This has happened many times in 2017, especially from November-January. HOLD STRONG KINGDOM, HOLD (I have faith in you all!).
January can be approached in 2 ways, roll with the most undervalued coins I’ve selected based on upcoming news and conferences or choose coins with upcoming news attending conferences that you prefer over the ones I’ve selected.
Update Binance is accepting new traders again: https://www.binance.com/?ref=15316928
My 3 favorite January plays remain ICX, STRAT, and NEO. NEO has more conferences than any other coin in the next 2 weeks and meet ups all over Europe prior to that. NEO is the Asian Ether and should rapidly increase in value in the next 3 weeks. STRAT will remain a favorite of mine as they are launching their ICO Platform and have 2 flagship ICOs ready to be announced (they are timing the down market waiting for a correction, I guarantee it). The FUD started in South Korea and ICX crashed because of it. They still have their first HOSTED blockchain event during their mainnet release the last week of January in the tallest building in Seoul. All 3 make up a major portion of my “safe plays” for January with an expected return of 40-100%.
My 3 favorite short term conference plays based on conferences for the next 2 weeks are: WAVES, ARK, and SONM. These 3 are all at events in the next 2 weeks of January (Waves and ARK are at a conference in Miami I will be attending!). The cost of attendance to these conferences start at $1,000 (help, donors help !) However, they provide exposure to the top individuals and founders of coins with billions of dollars in market cap. In comparison to other coins speaking at the largest January events WAVES, ARK, and SONM’s price has not appreciated this week in correlation to the others. They are also the smallest market cap coins presenting at these huge conferences. This provides an opportunity to purchase WAVES, ARK, and SONM at an undervalued price. As their conferences in mid-January approach I expect their price to trend north rapidly, peaking on the day of, or day after the conference. These should be focal points if you shy away from moonshots (which you shouldn’t!).
XEM, I’ve discussed this one many times. Their NEM 2.0 release, their Catapult Network, and a 4-week hack-a-thon with plenty of publicity beginning this week, make XEM a winner for January.
TRX, FUD attacks mean new ATHs remember that. TRX suffered bad attacks this week and with a game on the horizon I expect the new ATH to be approached ferociously.
POWR, Very few coins are sponsored or have the support of their native country. Australia has some of the worst laws for investing in crypto (problems with deposits and withdrawals) when compared to any country. Yet the Aussies LOVE crypto (as do I!!!). POWR has the Australian govt. support likely due to the power issues plaguing Australia. POWR is a great long term play.
ADX, A port to NEO is happening very soon and they also have a profitable advertising platform already set up. They recently completed a deal with EasyJet in the millions of dollars and are continuing to expand their user base. Advertising on the blockchain with a new port to NEO, seems like this is a clear winner with that type of news on the horizon.
ENJ, A new listing on KuCoin and a new wallet release? Not to mention their Minecraft Plugin is coming out very very soon…What more needs to be said about ENJ. They were one of the few winners in the market recently and should continue to be green even in a sea of red.
ARDR, Still a great buy because of its network but Bittrex is frustrating me to no end. My NXT has yet to arrive and my ARDR wallet has yet to be opened back up. Bittrex stop being so annoying this is why people are switching to KuCoin and Binance!
I had a few readers provide feedback that they wanted shorter more succinct paragraphs (with new info daily even if nothing has changed) instead of the detailed explanations from prior days. If you prefer today’s structure or a prior day’s structure, please let me know! I love hearing feedback from the Kingdom . If you would like anything added also please let me know, I could do a daily special on chart analysis, or buy/sell wells. Share some feedback with me the Crypto Kingdom!
Everyone is always asking about which ICOs I’m involved in and recommend. Well here are the current 2!
ICO’S : STORIQA: “The Amazon Cryptocurrency Marketplace”. Great team, great platform, easy to sign up for ICO (even for U.S. investors). Well past their soft cap and approaching their hard cap! Discount for bonus coins still available in the short term! This has been on and off of my rec list but because they are approaching their hard cap I figured I’d give everyone one last opportunity to sign up! Referral link : https://tokensale.storiqa.com/?ref=6663944dff31989391d803ce
KYC Legal: KYC Legal (please use the referral as I make no $ spending countless hours researching these ICOs and coins ) referral: https://bookbuild.kyc.legal/?ref=23734776ffa2051a83eb8bc1
Know Your Customer (the dreaded KYC form). If you’ve completed an ICO recently you know the form I’m talking about. The form they give you at the end, after you’ve sent your .5eth but before they will release their tokens. Basically stating you understand this market is unregulated, etc. Well a blockchain token has in essence solved this problem. I HATE KYC forms and if the KYC system was set up in a way in which you wouldn’t have to fill out that form repeatedly for every ICO it would be more convenient for all investors and ICO companies. KYC Legal intends to do just that. According to the founder DR, “This is a simple and quick way to complete client identification procedures, which can then be used to verify the client’s identity during various financial operations (so-called KYC (“know your customer”) requirements that financial institutions and companies working with the money of private individuals use to identify and verify counterparties before starting a financial transaction). This niche is completely untapped and I HATE KYC forms enough to think this is a brilliant idea. They are calling it a “Universal alternative to Personal IDs,” on the block chain. Brilliant concept and there are 2 days left to receive the 38% discount from the final price. A 38% gain prior to token sale completion is significant, imagine what will happen when the hard cap is reached and it hits the first exchange. KYC Legal: https://bookbuild.kyc.legal/?ref=23734776ffa2051a83eb8bc1
If you spend the time reading these you understand how long they must take to research and put together. My girlfriend wants to kill me (seriously I may not have one by the end of this post)! So I can provide her with presents while answering all of your questions make sure to show some love!

The state of the crypto market is clearly a volatile one. Most of the readers here haven’t been around more than 1 month, as I’ve not been posting more than 1 month. That being said markets go up and down. Markets that go up 300% in 1 week also have a tendency to go down 50% another week. This is how the game works, it takes a strong stomach and iron cojones. People always are nervous on the weekend, but do you know the statistically best day on average to buy BTC (lowest price?)? Sunday. It has to do with the FIAT banking system unable to get new $$ into the crypto markets until the week. Now, want to guess the most expensive day? Friday. If you are selling BTC its best to cash out on a Friday and buy in on a Monday. Just a helpful tip to understand minor market functions and how they are related to the FIAT banking system.
Upcoming Calendar: Jan 16th London Summit Bitcoin Workshop
Jan 18th Miami’s Blockchain Conference
Jan 19th London’s Blockchain WEEK
Jan 25th Manilla Blockchain Event
Jan 25th U.S. & China Cohosting an Event
Jan 31st DevCon (NEO!)
The FUD attacks we saw our lovely news agencies provide us have been dispelled multiple times by the South Koreans. With a schedule like the above the market is about to see a major infusion of funds. Bonus checks from last year are about to clear for almost every career path. There are conferences week after week with many weekends having 2. Coupled with FUD attacks that always preempt market ATHs, we have a very positive few weeks in Crypto coming up, regardless if the market is getting slammed today (except NEO ).
Another topic I want to discuss is specifically NEO! People always ask me when is the best time to buy and sell a coin. I want to give NEO as a very good example of how I can’t tell you when to pull the trigger but can show you the best options in my opinion. Binance pays “GAS” for NEO held on the 1st of every month. This makes the price of GAS (a coin traded on exchanges) drop the first week of every month as the market is flooded with new GAS. However, the price of NEO also spikes in the final few days of the month in anticipation of all the free “GAS” that will be dropped into your account. Binance does it automatically which makes it very convenient. NEO is currently facing the perfect storm of positivity. They have 20+ ICOs on their NEO platform in the works, each will pay GAS when their coins begin transacting. They also have meet ups every few days until the last week of January where they will be at multiple conferences (the biggest in the world). After meet ups in Europe, conferences in major cities and new ICOs paying more and more gas, they are going to be giving “GAS” on the 1st. I see NEO’s price continuing to rise regardless of the trend in the overall crypto market as the 1st of every month approaches. However, leading up to the 1st of February I would expect to see NEO reach a new ATH almost daily.
Binance is taking new customers (NEO, STRAT and ICX): https://www.binance.com/?ref=15316928
If anyone has been watching the KuCoin order books it is easy to see the Whales at play. 5BTC orders get dropped into the order book a few % off the current buy/sell price. Driving the price down or up as they sell or accumulate. You can see this on many different coins and if Reddit would allow me to upload a photo I’d show you a few lovely screenshots of it occurring! Either way as no new FIAT is entering crypto because it’s a Sunday, the whales are heavily at play, and we just suffered FUD attacks. I recommend HOLDING, not selling at a loss, and using any gains or new FIAT to purchase NEO, STRAT, and ICX (safest plays through the storm).
Moonshots are currently selected from KuCoin. To use KuCoin make sure to have an account: Referral link for KuCoin: https://www.kucoin.com/#/?r=1cH1M
The picking of moonshots will be temporarily suspended as right now 90% of coins on KuCoin have dropped 30% or more in the last 2 days making most a great buying opportunity as the whales pressure the price down and continue to accumulate.
What you have to understand about a moonshot is patience. You can’t expect to have a 10x gain in a 3-day period of time. None of my moonshots, not even the ones up 600% were 100% gainers in the first 24 hours. If you are jumping on the backs of a moonshot pick without doing your research and without the intention of HOLDING you are doing yourself an injustice. The first coins to bounce back from a downward correction are the mid-caps and large-caps. So far we’ve seen the beginning of this bounce back the last 12 hours. The last to follow are the small caps ($30-$100 million market cap). However, when this third category do bounce back, they comeback with the most momentum. Usually having 100-300% gains in a very short period of time. This is also why they drop 30-50% during market retractions. You can’t blindly follow anyone’s advice, and you have to understand crypto is an investment (and a gamble), not a 24hr waiting game. You can be successful day trading it but that is also a way to get very badly burned. Moonshots should be bought and held until the % you deem appropriate is reached at which point they should be sold.
Yesterday’s Moonshot Pick (some info copied from yesterday): FLIXX FLIXX is a favorite as a moonshot of mine because of it’s extremely low market cap on KuCoin, and it’s almost exclusive presence on KuCoin. It’s already formed partnerships with other coins making significant moves in the blockchain sector (ADX). Along with a truly revolutionary platform. Originally I was thinking this is the Netflix for the blockchain but a better comparison would be Youtube for the blockchain. It is much cheaper to host media on the blockchain then cloud servers and recently FLIXX announced a partnership with ADX to provide ads throughout their experience. FLIXX is already looking to capitalize on their platform and ADX has worked with Easyjet to sell ad space on the blockchain already. I expect FLIXX to rebound exceptionally hard following the low caps northward trend in the next few days. FLIXX is also a coin that fluctuates greatly in price daily so if you want to try your luck at day trading place buy and sell orders in front of the buy and sell walls and see how cheap/how expensive you can buy/sell for. If you don’t understand that last sentence, let’s stick to buying and holding for now. FLIXX is a new addition to my moonshots and KuCoin portfolio. There are only 1 or 2 more coins that would qualify as moonshots and those won’t be released until the market recovers slightly. FLIXX is waiting for shuttle launch as we speak.
NEVER have 100% or even 70% of your funds in 1 coin, always stay diversified! I am almost evenly diversified between my moonshots and ‘safe plays’ with an even allocation among the moonshots. The moonshots are listed below and safe plays are listed below!
(UPDATED, VERY IMPORTANT PARAGRAPH) HST, DBC, ELIX, SNOV, BNTY, KCS, DRGN, PURA, and EVX were my prior moonshot picks! Most are up between 100% and 600% depending on where you bought them. If you do not believe me click my name and go back 10 days in my posts, you will see I called DRGN when it was $.7 and KCS when it was $3.00, while KCS is now $15 and DRGN is over $4. Moonshots are not going to moon while the market is bleeding. We all need to be patient, with a strong set of cojones, to allow the moons the required time to take off. I feel the same losses all of you feel, I am just accustomed to them because when these FUD attacks occur, 2 weeks later your portfolio will be at its ATH (all time high). This has happened many times in 2017, especially from November-January. HOLD STRONG KINGDOM, HOLD (I have faith in you all!).
A new exchange is a very hard thing to find. KuCoin allows very easy deposits and withdrawals. I tried out Cryptopia, and it allowed me to deposit 5 Ether, but only withdrawal 3 per day, and it took over 12hrs to process. This was worse than CB. KuCoin is the current perfect solution to Binance and Bittrex freezing out new customers (for the most part) and they are focusing on adding large cap coins, as well as small cap coins, appealing to a range of investors.
(My picks and strategy for January remain unchanged, ride out the storm, accumulate safe plays, and time sells as best as I can)
I have 4 plans of attack for January: 1. Moonshots (explained above), 2. ICOs (explained way below), 3. Conference Plays, 4. January Buy and Hold (with dates)
Most of my recommended coins can be purchased on KuCoin and Binance, there will be 1-3 more KuCoin moonshots in the coming weeks. Following those moonshots, if Binance is not accepting new traders, I will research the next best platform with moonshot opportunities and ease of withdrawal.
(Favorites Remain ICX, STRAT, and NEO as Buy and Hold) My 3 favorite January plays remain ICX, STRAT, and NEO. NEO has more conferences than any other coin in the next 2 weeks and meet ups all over Europe prior to that. NEO is the Asian Ether and should rapidly increase in value in the next 3 weeks. STRAT will remain a favorite of mine as they are launching their ICO Platform and have 2 flagship ICOs ready to be announced (they are timing the down market waiting for a correction, I guarantee it). The FUD started in South Korea and ICX crashed because of it. They still have their first HOSTED blockchain event during their mainnet release the last week of January in the tallest building in Seoul. All 3 make up a major portion of my “safe plays” for January with an expected return of 40-100%.
My 3 favorite short term conference plays based on conferences for the next 2 weeks are: WAVES, ARK, and SONM. These 3 are all at events in the next 2 weeks of January (Waves and ARK are at a conference in Miami I will be attending!). These conferences provide exposure to the top individuals and founders of coins with billions of dollars in market cap. In comparison to other coins speaking at the largest January events WAVES, ARK, and SONM’s market cap is very minimal. With ARK and WAVES in Miami and SONM in London I expect a big week from these 3. This market dip provides an opportunity to purchase WAVES, ARK, and SONM at an undervalued price. As their conferences are approaching I expect their price to trend north rapidly, peaking on the day of, or day after the conference. These should be focal points if you shy away from moonshots (which you shouldn’t!).
XEM, I’ve discussed this one many times. Their NEM 2.0 release, their Catapult Network, and a 4-week hackathon with plenty of publicity beginning this week, make XEM a winner for January.
TRX, FUD attacks mean new ATHs remember that. A new game and a FUD attack, I expect a rapid rise. Not a long term favorite of mine but a great possible short term play. They have taken another recent beating, if you like this coin now is a great entry point.
POWR, Very few coins are sponsored or have the support of their native country. Australia has some of the worst laws for investing in crypto (problems with deposits and withdrawals) when compared to any country. Yet the Aussies LOVE crypto (as do I!!!). POWR has the Australian govt. support likely due to the power issues plaguing Australia. POWR is a great long term play.
ADX, One of the reasons I like FLIXX is I like ADX. A port to NEO is happening very soon and they also have a profitable advertising platform already set up. They recently completed a deal with EasyJet in the millions of dollars and are continuing to expand their user base. Advertising on the blockchain with a new port to NEO, seems like this is a clear winner with that type of news on the horizon.
ENJ, A new listing on KuCoin and a new wallet release? Not to mention their Minecraft Plugin is coming out very very soon…What more needs to be said about ENJ. They were one of the few winners in the market recently and should continue to be green even in a sea of red.
ARDR, Still a great buy because of its network but Bittrex is frustrating me to no end. My NXT has yet to arrive and my ARDR wallet has yet to be opened back up. Bittrex stop being so annoying this is why people are switching to KuCoin and Binance!
Everyone is always asking about which ICOs I’m involved in and recommend. Well here are the current 2!
ICO’S : STORIQA: “The Amazon Cryptocurrency Marketplace”. Great team, great platform, easy to sign up for ICO (even for U.S. investors). Well past their soft cap and approaching their hard cap! Discount for bonus coins still available in the short term! This has been on and off of my rec list but because they are approaching their hard cap I figured I’d give everyone one last opportunity to sign up! Referral link : https://tokensale.storiqa.com/?ref=6663944dff31989391d803ce
KYC Legal: KYC Legal (please use the referral as I make no $ spending countless hours researching these ICOs and coins ) referral: https://bookbuild.kyc.legal/?ref=23734776ffa2051a83eb8bc1
Know Your Customer (the dreaded KYC form). If you’ve completed an ICO recently you know the form I’m talking about. The form they give you at the end, after you’ve sent your .5eth but before they will release their tokens. Basically stating you understand this market is unregulated, etc. Well a blockchain token has in essence solved this problem. I HATE KYC forms and if the KYC system was set up in a way in which you wouldn’t have to fill out that form repeatedly for every ICO it would be more convenient for all investors and ICO companies. KYC Legal intends to do just that. According to the founder DR, “This is a simple and quick way to complete client identification procedures, which can then be used to verify the client’s identity during various financial operations (so-called KYC (“know your customer”) requirements that financial institutions and companies working with the money of private individuals use to identify and verify counterparties before starting a financial transaction). This niche is completely untapped and I HATE KYC forms enough to think this is a brilliant idea. They are calling it a “Universal alternative to Personal IDs,” on the block chain. Brilliant concept and there are 2 days left to receive the 38% discount from the final price. A 38% gain prior to token sale completion is significant, imagine what will happen when the hard cap is reached and it hits the first exchange.

If you spend the time reading these you understand how long they must take to research and put together. My girlfriend wants to kill me (seriously I may not have one by the end of this post)! So I can provide her with presents while answering all of your questions make sure to show some love!

The Crypto King Report January 13th: January Picks Based on Conferences, New Moon Shot (FLIXX), 2 ICOS, and January Safe Plays!

When purchasing coins there is a significant analysis that needs to be completed in searching for undervalued options. However, one of the easiest things to do is find coins presenting at upcoming conferences and riding the wave of hype leading up to the conference. This week we have a conference in Miami, with ARK, WAVES, RSK, AUGUR, BlOQ, DASH and XMR presenting. I am actually very excited to be attending this conference! Each is a fine play for the week, but my favorites are ARK and WAVES. They are both available on Binance and have market caps that should increase dramatically in the coming 5 days leading up to their presentations. History tends to repeat itself in crypto and the market was at an ATH less than a week ago. Following the most recent FUD attacks and downward correction I expect a new market ATH for these coins prior to the conference or immediately following. Attendees are paying $1000 per ticket and the conference will be webcast around the world. More money is coming into Crypto in coming weeks than in any 3-week period in history. This is an exciting time, prior to ATH (all-time highs) the crypto market always experiences a dramatic drop, this shakes out the weak hands, provides coins at discounts to the wealthy supporting the FUD attacks, and repeat. I fully expect the crypto market to surpass the $1 trillion total market cap mark during this stretch of upcoming conferences.
The conferences start January 16th with the London Summit Bitcoin Workshop. January 18th we have Miami’s Blockchain conference (anyone going?!). January 19th kicks off London’s Blockchain Week. January 25th Manilla is hosting a huge blockchain event, that SAME day the U.S. and China are cohosting a blockchain conference (NEO and many others will be presenting) in San Francisco. January 31st is DevCon which NEO will be at again, along with many more coins. This next month literally has 1 or 2 major conferences in a major city every single weekend. These intentional FUD attacks were a quick way for whales (the people who own news agencies) to scoop up cheap shares leading into the biggest 7-12 weeks in blockchain conference history. The sheer amount of publicity surrounding a conference every weekend will drive the total market cap above 1 trillion (in my opinion).
I haven’t even started talking about February but we will leave that for another time. I cannot predict the future (or specifically which day this will occur) but what I do know is people do not pay $1000 (per ticket!) to sit at a convention unless they are truly big investors looking to get involved. There should be a flood of money coming into the crypto space following each conference between the attendees and the publicity.
Moonshots are currently selected from KuCoin. To use KuCoin make sure to have an account: Referral link for KuCoin: https://www.kucoin.com/#/?r=1cH1M
What you have to understand about a moonshot is patience. You can’t expect to have a 10x gain in a 3-day period of time. None of my moonshots, not even the ones up 600% were 100% gainers in the first 24 hours. If you are jumping on the backs of a moonshot pick without doing your research and without the intention of HOLDING you are doing yourself an injustice. The first coins to bounce back from a downward correction are the mid-caps and large-caps. So far we’ve seen the beginning of this bounce back the last 12 hours. The last to follow are the small caps ($30-$100 million market cap). However, when this third category do bounce back, they comeback with the most momentum. Usually having 100-300% gains in a very short period of time. This is also why they drop 30-50% during market retractions. You can’t blindly follow anyone’s advice, and you have to understand crypto is an investment (and a gamble), not a 24hr waiting game. You can be successful day trading it but that is also a way to get very badly burned. Moonshots should be bought and held until the % you deem appropriate is reached at which point they should be sold.
Jan 13th Moonshot Pick: FLIXX FLIXX is a favorite as a moonshot of mine because of it’s extremely low market cap on KuCoin, and it’s almost exclusive presence on KuCoin. It’s already formed partnerships with other coins making significant moves in the blockchain sector (ADX). Along with a truly revolutionary platform. Originally I was thinking this is the Netflix for the blockchain but a better comparison would be Youtube for the blockchain. It is much cheaper to host media on the blockchain then cloud servers and recently FLIXX announced a partnership with ADX to provide ads throughout their experience. FLIXX is already looking to capitalize on their platform and ADX has worked with Easyjet to sell ad space on the blockchain already. I expect FLIXX to rebound exceptionally hard following the low caps northward trend in the next few days. FLIXX is also a coin that fluctuates greatly in price daily so if you want to try your luck at day trading place buy and sell orders in front of the buy and sell walls and see how cheap/how expensive you can buy/sell for. If you don’t understand that last sentence, let’s stick to buying and holding for now. FLIXX is a new addition to my moonshots and KuCoin portfolio. There are only 1 or 2 more coins that would qualify as moonshots and those won’t be released until the market recovers slightly. FLIXX is waiting for shuttle launch as we speak.
Yesterday’s Moonshot: CAG (some info copied and pasted)
From a technical analysis CAG looks ripe for an immediate trend North. Analyzing their actual concept, team, wallet, roadmap and Q1, it is even more impressive. Their Q1 road map coupled with their wallet make this a coin that should be well above the $100million market cap as any of its competitors already are. This coin is on sale for no other reason than the market FUD attacks which will correct very shortly. A strong team, a great roadmap, a concept built for the future of crypto banking, and a technical analysis that shows a major correction are why CAG was the Moonshot of the Yesterday! I still stand by CAG as a favorite for the next week (and months moving forward).
How intently are you following the coins you own? Did anyone even notice EVX went up 40% this morning? I sold almost 50% of my holdings during this spike. If you had sell orders in place every one of you who was unhappy regarding their entry point on EVX would have sold at a profit. I can’t monitor the Kingdom’s portfolio I can only monitor my own, and point out where undervalue exists in the crypto markets. Sell points and buy points are what you have to determine as a trader. If you didn’t sell a portion of your EVX this AM you missed out on a 40% spike. It is important to always be watching the crypto market (Blockfolio allows you to set alarms at specific price points on your phone).
NEVER have 100% or even 70% of your funds in 1 coin, always stay diversified! I am almost evenly diversified between my moonshots and ‘safe plays’ with an even allocation among the moonshots.
(VERY IMPORTANT PARAGRAPH) HST, DBC, ELIX, SNOV, BNTY, KCS, DRGN, PURA, and EVX were my prior moonshot picks! Most are up between 100% and 600% depending on where you bought them. If you do not believe me click my name and go back 10 days in my posts, you will see I called DRGN when it was $.7 and KCS when it was $3.00, while KCS is now $19 and DRGN is over $4. Moonshots are not going to moon while the market is bleeding. We all need to be patient, with a strong set of cojones, to allow the moons the required time to take off. I feel the same losses all of you feel, I am just accustomed to them because when these FUD attacks occur, 2 weeks later your portfolio will be at its ATH (all time high). This has happened many times in 2017, especially from November-January. HOLD STRONG KINGDOM, HOLD (I have faith in you all!).
A new exchange is a very hard thing to find. KuCoin allows very easy deposits and withdrawals. I tried out Cryptopia, and it allowed me to deposit 5 Ether, but only withdrawal 3 per day, and it took over 12hrs to process. This was worse than CB. KuCoin is the current perfect solution to Binance and Bittrex freezing out new customers (for the most part) and they are focusing on adding large cap coins, as well as small cap coins, appealing to a range of investors.
I have 4 plans of attack for January: 1. Moonshots (explained above), 2. ICOs (explained way below), 3. Conference Plays, 4. January Buy and Hold (with dates)
Most of my recommended coins can be purchased on KuCoin and Binance, there will be 1-3 more KuCoin moonshots in the coming weeks. Following those moonshots, if Binance is not accepting new traders, I will research the next best platform with moonshot opportunities and ease of withdrawal.
Update! Binance is accepting new traders again: https://www.binance.com/?ref=15316928
(Favorites Remain ICX, STRAT, and NEO as Buy and Hold) My 3 favorite January plays remain ICX, STRAT, and NEO. NEO has more conferences than any other coin in the next 2 weeks and meetups all over Europe prior to that. NEO is the Asian Ether and should rapidly increase in value in the next 3 weeks. STRAT will remain a favorite of mine as they are launching their ICO Platform and have 2 flagship ICOs ready to be announced (they are timing the down market waiting for a correction, I guarantee it). The FUD started in South Korea and ICX crashed because of it. They still have their first HOSTED blockchain event during their mainnet release the last week of January in the tallest building in Seoul. All 3 make up a major portion of my “safe plays” for January with an expected return of 40-100%.
My 3 favorite short term conference plays based on conferences for the next 2 weeks are: WAVES, ARK, and SONM. These 3 are all at events in the next 2 weeks of January (Waves and ARK are at a conference in Miami I will be attending!). These conferences provide exposure to the top individuals and founders of coins with billions of dollars in market cap. In comparison to other coins speaking at the largest January events WAVES, ARK, and SONM’s market cap is very minimal. With ARK and WAVES in Miami and SONM in London I expect a big week from these 3. This market dip provides an opportunity to purchase WAVES, ARK, and SONM at an undervalued price. As their conferences are approaching I expect their price to trend north rapidly, peaking on the day of, or day after the conference. These should be focal points if you shy away from moonshots (which you shouldn’t!).
XEM, I’ve discussed this one many times. Their NEM 2.0 release, their Catapult Network, and a 4-week hackathon with plenty of publicity beginning this week, make XEM a winner for January.
TRX, FUD attacks mean new ATHs remember that. A new game and a FUD attack, I expect a rapid rise. Not a long term favorite of mine but a great possible short term play.
POWR, Very few coins are sponsored or have the support of their native country. Australia has some of the worst laws for investing in crypto (problems with deposits and withdrawals) when compared to any country. Yet the Aussies LOVE crypto (as do I!!!). POWR has the Australian govt. support likely due to the power issues plaguing Australia. POWR is a great long term play.

Hey BAT oarsmen! Welcome to the Daily BAT Discussion!
Yesterday's Market Movements - Slightly-Down and Sideways
We saw an initial drop from our 3700 satoshi price down-to and stabilizing at 3500 sats ($0.37) for the rest of the day. Volume still very low.
The news front is so quiet, you can almost hear the static zapping between the fibers as you shuffle your sock-covered foot across your Victorian Britain rug that you someday may acquire.

Hey BAT hombres! Welcome to the Daily BAT Discussion!
Yesterday's Market Movements - Sideways and Up
Yesterday we saw a bit of recovery across crypto. Almost everything was in the green, including BAT. We started the day at around 4700 sats and ended at around 4900 sats ($0.45). Volume has been insanely low across all exchanges for BAT, so it's great to see side/upward movement here.
Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend so far! Don't forget to drop by and say hi!

Hey BAT doodles! Welcome to the Daily BAT Discussion!
Yesterday's Market Movements - Downward Movement
Yesterday was another day of terrible red in the crypto world. We saw Ethereum reaching $600 and Bitcoin reaching $6000, taking down further all of the market as expected. BAT dropped a bit from 4500 sats to 3900 sats ($0.25). Not favorable for holders, but fantastic for people still entering. Once again, proceed with caution!

[Daily BAT Discussion] Homeward Bound - February 19, 2018

February 19, 2018
Hey BAT cows! Welcome to the Daily BAT Discussion!
Yesterday's Market Movements - Slightly Down
Yesterday we saw the price move downward a little bit, touching 3800 sats for a minute, and bouncing back up now sitting at around 4000 sats ($0.43). We're still pretty close with the USD price compared to yesterday despite the drop in satoshis because Bitcoin's price also climbed a bit. However, volume is still very low, so any big hands could move the price in either direction.
ETH Denver is officially over! It was an absolute blast meeting developers and learning more about the other projects in the crypto space. They officially announced the kickoff of next year's ETH Denver 2019. From what I've heard, it's one of the most successful, and largest ETH hackathons so far. This year it was free to attend for everyone - hackers and workshop attendees. They also gave out a lot of free stuff, along with free meals over the whole weekend from local foodtrucks, which were absolutely delicious. If you guys have the means and motivation, I would definitely recommend checking it out next year!
Also wanted to give a big shoutout to the Brave/BAT team for working on all the payments technical issues despite attending the event! In my opinion, Brave is hands down one of the best projects (if not the best) in the space so far, and everyone from the company, team members, to all you guys in the community are just fantastic.
Hope everyone has a great start of the week!

We saw another drop in price again yesterday - from 5100 sats to 4700 sats ($0.41). The USD value of BAT dropped a crazy 10-cents mainly due to Bitcoin losing value, dropping down to $8.5k. Be careful out there guys, and if you're investing, invest responsibly!

Bitcoin Holding $3,550 Means “Next Strong Move” is Building!
Original Source: [Here]1
Ever since Bitcoin (BTC) suddenly ran on February 8th, posting a jaw-dropping performance that came straight out of left field, the broader crypto market has entered a lull. While there have been a few notable movers, like Binance Coin (BNB), the broader digital asset class has all but stopped moving. Price action has effectively come to a standstill.
This has left many asking, what’s next for the cryptocurrency market? While one analyst couldn’t give a definitive answer on whether BTC will move higher or lower, he argues that a breakout is festering, and is inbound.
[Bitcoin Charts]2

Analyst Hints At Bitcoin Breakout

Josh Rager, an advisor to TokenBacon and Blackwave, recently took to Twitter to convey some analysis regarding Bitcoin’s chart. While Josh didn’t have any explicit predictions, due to the non-volatility in BTC’s value, he did note that as the cryptocurrency has yet to break under its “weekly historical support level,” it is likely building its “next strong move.”


[Josh's Tweet ]3
As aforementioned, he didn’t definitively or tacitly mention what which Bitcoin could head after its ends this lull, but considering theories regarding the “Bart Formation,” some believers claim that BTC could plummet just as fast as it rallied on February 8th.
Josh’s recent comment comes after he took to his Twitter soapbox to make an astute comment. Per previous reports from this outlet, the popular industry personality remarked that after 2019, potentially only a few in the “general population” will be able to afford an entire BTC. He added that while global income per household figures could swell, due to inflation, solid economic conditions, and other factors, after 2021, BTC’s “speculative value could be out of reach for most.”

Crypto Could Fall Further

Interestingly, for once in a blue moon, few commentators are sure where the crypto market is headed in the short-term. But as reported by NewsBTC previously, the few analysts that have issued forecasts in these mundane market conditions expect losses in the near future.

[Daily BAT Discussion] Coastal Cruising - February 10, 2018

February 10, 2018
Hey BAT lobsters! Welcome to the Daily BAT Discussion!
Yesterday's Market Movements - Sideways movement
Looks like another day of solid sideways movement. The slope is a slight downward angle, starting from 4600 sats and ending the day at around 4400 sats ($0.39). Meanwhile Bitcoin and Ethereum are showing signs of stabilization (hopefully?) so hopefully we won't be in for a surprise drop anytime soon.
If you haven't already, check out the weekly update from CryptoJennie! Lots of great news to recap if you've been out of the loop.

[Daily BAT Discussion] Wading through Jelly - February 11, 2018

February 11, 2018
Hey BAT earthlings! Welcome to the Daily BAT Discussion!
Yesterday's Market Movements - Slight Downward Movement
Yesterday was another day of a slight drop against BTC and ETH ratios. Moved from 4400 sats to 4200 sats ($0.34) still on very low volume. Growth has definitely slowed down compared to Dec/Jan, but fundamentals are still as strong as ever.
Just want to give a shoutout to the team for all the great communication and transparency. With all the craziness going on in the Nano/Bitgrail realms as well as other crypto communities, it feels good to be a part of the Brave/BAT/Eich team. Cheers!

[Daily BAT Discussion] Optimistic Acorns - February 28, 2018

February 28, 2018
Hey BAT squirrels! Welcome to the Daily BAT Discussion!
Yesterday's Market Movements - Sideways Movement
During the beginning of the day, we dropped from 3500 satoshis down to 3400 sats ($0.37) and moved sideways for the rest of the day. We ended on the same USD value as the day before, so not much change. Volume still very low.
Shoutout to the first Brave ad spotted on mobile YouTube! Hehe.

[Daily BAT Discussion] Slightly Warm Kettle - February 23, 2018

February 23, 2018
Hey BAT nannies! Welcome to the Daily BAT Discussion!
Yesterday's Market Movements - Sideways Movement
We saw a bit of sideways movement, starting and ending the day at 3400 sats ($0.34). However, the 24h price trend seemed to be ever-so-slightly positive. Bitcoin dropped to sub $10k and Ethereum dropped to sub $900, so we have a slightly lower USD price than yesterday.
Weekend's almost here! Have you told a friend about Brave today?

[Daily BAT Discussion] Waiting for Jelly - February 12, 2018

February 12, 2018
Hey BAT sailors! Welcome to the Daily BAT Discussion!
Yesterday's Market Movements - Downward and Up?
We had another day of slow, steady dropping throughout the day, going from 4200 sats all the way down to 4000 sats. But then around an hour before this daily post, we saw a big spike up back to 4300 sats ($0.36). Not sure if it was a pump move or what, but definitely out of the ordinary and unexpected at the end of the day. Binance exchange is back online, and volume is still incredibly low across all exchanges.
Hope everyone has a great start of the week!

[Daily BAT Discussion] Through the Forest - February 22, 2018

February 22, 2018
Hey BAT squirrels! Welcome to the Daily BAT Discussion!
Yesterday's Market Movements - Sideways-downish Movement
Not much to say in terms of market movement, a slight increase in price yesterday but dropping back down slightly lower than our starting price of the day, ending at 3400 sats ($0.37). Once again, low volume, so any significant movement could push the price up or down fast.
Also it looks like people are starting to see the monthly Brave Payments roll out to the creators. More YouTubers are jumping on board. Let's go Brave and BAT!
