Amazon, Walmart - Accepting of Crypto!

  • AWS CEO Andy Jassy unveiled two new blockchain products at the re:Invent conference in Las Vegas on Wednesday.

  • The company will offer Amazon Quantum Ledger Database and Amazon Managed Blockchain for developers using its cloud-computing services.

  • Amazon is introducing the services despite an almost 70 percent plunge this year in the price of bitcoin.

Amazon's new product will support two popular existing blockchain platforms — Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric. Ethereum is a popular open-source building platform for developers, linked to the cryptocurrency ether, while corporate giants including IBM are currently building projects on Hyperledger.

In addition to the managed blockchain product, AWS announced Amazon Quantum Ledger Database, or QLDB, where customers can replicate a copy of their blockchain network activity.

Amazon already leverages Ethereum on its cloud network, and in May announced a partnership with start-up Kaleido to make it easier for customers to put their services on blockchain. Microsoft offers customers "blockchain as a service" on its Azure cloud.

On the other side of the fence, Walmart is also fully invested in Blockchain. Walmart recently became one of the first retailers to explain how it will be using the technology. The company said it would require lettuce suppliers to upload data about their foods to blockchain within a year.

TRADE TIP: What to watch?

Here is a free trading tip, which we constantly remind our Premium Program members of, like clockwork: MARKET CAPS. Why?

The market cap essentially represents the amount of demand for the #crypto. More people buying, bidding the price higher, leads to a higher market cap. You watch the market cap to determine how the market should react in the near future. You watch the volume, the action.

Many traders like to watch the Bitcoin market cap. We do it differently, we tell our Premium members to always have open the Bitcoin Market Cap AND the Alt Coin Market Cap (see links below). Why? Well, you need to see how both interact with eachother to best determine where the money is flowing. If you see BTC market cap declining, where is that money going? Check the Alt-Coin market cap. Always have both open.

It’s a small but very handy tip. Always remember to keep your eyes on how the wider (marco) market moves. Understanding technical analysis (TA) is imperative.

TRADE WAR: Hodl

US President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping have agreed to halt new trade tariffs for 90 days to allow for talks, the US says. Essentially, the massive macro-economic Trade War between the USA and China is currently in HODL phase.

At a post-G20 summit meeting in Buenos Aires, Mr Trump agreed not to boost tariffs on $200bn (£157bn) of Chinese goods from 10% to 25% on 1 January. China will buy a "very substantial" amount of agricultural, industrial and energy products, the US says. Meanwhile, Beijing says the two sides agreed to open up their markets.

BUT….How does this relate to Cryptocurrency?

Without going into boring economic detail, it means that the tension and stress in the wider economic market (between two superpowers - USA and China) are on the back-burner. So, the wider financial markets (traders, speculators, institutional investors) now:

  • Have the GREEN LIGHT to invest, trade and carry on as per normal

  • No current macro-economic risk of two world superpowers fighting with interest rates/inter-country trading and debt

  • Potential bearish scenarios which would play out due to a trade war are not front of mind, as both countries agreed to play this out safely

Essentially, Cryptocurrency Markets and wider traditional stock markets (ASX, Dow Jones, S&P Index, NASDAQ, etc.) are all free to trade without the fear of an inter-country Trade War ruining their day.

We’ve been calling it for months - a very BULLISH return to Crypto is on the near horizon and we will see a bullish return by the end of December 2018; Q1 2019 will be extremely Bullish.

Is the market over-reacting?

The market isn’t done with the crash. The hashwars are still, of course, continuing - making a mockery of the market itself. But, is the market over-reacting?

The answer is wholeheartedly, yes.

Despite the very real drops in the value of Bitcoin and virtually all alt coins, Bitcoin fundamentals have never been stronger with it’s infrastructure still growing at a healthy rate.

Take the lightning network for example, this has increased its capacity by almost 200% in the last 4 months.

Ethereum are also working on their next project “Ethereum 2.0” - with talks of this being a completely new Blockchain, it boasts to be much more complex in it’s creation to withstand everything it struggled with in the past.

Last year, we had big dips before the bull-run that many weren’t ready for. Now, fundamentally, everything is much stronger. With confirmed Swiss ETF’s, upcoming BAKKT and VanEck ETF in the United States plus other fundamentally strong news, we are in a good position.

For the moment, we are dealing with negative market sentiment and hype, but all signs are pointing toward positive market movements in the near future. We will move up (BTC to around 5000) before another drop below, breaking down to the bottom (potentially around the 3000 level for BTC). This is happening extremely quickly, which should lead to a quicker recovery, as we bounce hard up once the market is ready.

Stay strong and do your research! This won’t last forever.

XLM Ready for Bitcoin Decoupling?

It’s widely known that all alt coins rise and fall in value in the wake of Bitcoin as it also rises and falls as so many different coins rely on it, despite what some coins may say in terms independence.

Stellar (XLM) However, has become one of the strongest and most stable coins going around.

To decouple from Bitcoin, alt coins need to have their own infrastructure and/or price stability that is derived from said infrastructure. XLM is a leader in alt coins in this space as they have built a whole ecosystem around their project. Without naming everything they’ve put into their ecosystem, some of the major components they’ve built varies from; their own decentralised exchange, stellar-based stable coins, layer 2 scaling solutions similar to the Lightning Network, increased fiat exposure through its presence on almost every major exchange and major connections & partnerships to big companies world-wide.

When taking all of this into consideration, XLM is arguably one of the strongest and stable alt coins going around at the moment. Given the fact that it is getting this kind recognition is testament to their project and what they’re building.

South Korea - NOT BANNING CRYPTO

Through the grapevine we have heard the rumour that South Korea are planning on banning Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Exchanges. The rumour states that this is about to be enforced and will be made public in the second or third week of 2018.

This is NOT TRUE. The South Korean government merely want to work more closely with South Korean exchanges and get a better feel for the market. They are not banning anything.

Do NOT panic sell or panic at all once this news breaks. Our PremiumProgram members have already received strategic plans; essentially, the market will dip anyway in the coming weeks/month. Stay calm.

Stellar Lumens - XLM / STR

Stellar Lumens is going to join the majority of Alt coins from late November 2017 into early January 2018 with new ATH's. Word on the grapevine: buy Stellar now at any price before the end of October and HOLD.

What we will be doing:

Buying Stellar Lumens and holding. This rocket will launch.

Morgan Stanley - BIG IN BITCOIN + New Tips!

BREAKING

This evening our technical team were involved with a private conference with investment group, Morgan Stanley.

Morgan Stanley have been sitting on the sidelines watching Bitcoin, alt-coins and the wider blockchain space. They have been monitoring with great interest, but yet to make any moves.

This is what we can confirm with certainty:

  1. We fully expect a bullish return by November this year. Bitcoin will make a new all time high. How much? We can’t confirm, however we fully expect it to triple in price. Our PremiumProgram members have already been informed of potential playout scenarios and are ready.

  2. Morgan Stanley will in 2018 go fully into Bitcoin, Crypto and Blockchain. They will accumulate massive amounts of Bitcoin (and other Crypto alt-coins).

  3. Morgan Stanley in 2018 will begin development of a O.T.C. Derivatives product, trading desk and ETF offering (potentially leveraging corporations like VanEck). The ETF piece, we expect Morgan Stanley to push forward in partnership with VanEck and have an ETF for Bitcoin approved in Q4 2018.

That is the latest we can comfortably share.

Our team have the best industry connections in the Financial space, so we will continue to keep working hard, ensuring you guys are all provided the best possible information.

Happy trading, keep positive, this is a new and growing space.

NOTE: When trading, always use stop-losses. We suggest a stop-loss setup for all trades, long and short. The markets are picking up pace so do not get caught out in case of a temporary dip, before a run.
