For those of you who may have missed the news last week regarding this years latest centralized exchange hacks and exit scam blunders, Upbit, a South Korean exchange was subjected to a theft in about 342,000 ETH. Subsequently this exchange has paused any deposits or withdrawals until the dust settles in a couple of weeks. For those of you who may be interested, thanks to the transparency of the Ethereum blockchain, you can follow the path of these stolen coins to different wallets that these hackers are creating in an effort to put a long enough transaction history between the now identified hacker wallets in an effort to get them onto exchanges and disperse the now dirty coins to the open crypto markets. This certainly highlights a couple things that are important to understand in this space, one being the ever present threat of theft if you store your coins on a centralized exchange (albeit, Upbit will be covering the total amount of this loss from its own pockets so their users won’t be directly affected.) And also, the fact that non privacy oriented cryptocurrencies will always suffer from a lack of fungibility. I know this seems like an argument that favors the criminal hackers but for anyone that holds any cryptocurrency, fungibility is essential in protecting yourself. Do you know the complete history of who owned the coins you’re currently holding? Unless you mined them yourself and you only hold freshly minted coins I’m willing to guess that answer is no.
Also, the CEO of IDAX who conveniently for him held the sole control of its access to the exchanges cold storage has left the building Right after China announced that they would be ousting cryptocurrency exchanges in their country. The CEO took with him the control of a whole bunch of people’s cryptocurrency. Unsurprisingly, IDAX has announced that users will not be able to deposit or withdraw to and from that exchange.

After so many instances like this, you’d think these centralized exchanges would issue some kind of warning of the risks of using their platform… You know, like how when you use a decentralized exchange they remind you the importance of your private keys and how you are solely in control of your coins and how you have the responsibility of securing them correctly….

Anyway, in other news, for those of you who are fans of the drama in this crypto space, the founder of Digibyte seems to still be a bit salty at Binance for the terms of being listed on that exchange and took to Twitter to air his feelings, calling out Justin Sun as well.

In better news, the next Bitcoin halving event takes place this spring will officially place its inflation rate below the “intended goal” of central banks, and below the inflation rate of gold as well. This places a lot more attention on Bitcoin’s stock to flow ratio and hopefully help give investors the reminder of the long term benefits of holding an asset with a known, limited supply that can’t be altered to satisfy the political wants of, well, anyone.

Lastly, I wanted to give a shout out to Peter McCormack and his youtube channel called whatbitcoindid and all of the epic interviews he’s conducted over the past year. If you’re looking for some fresh content that plays well as a podcast as well and you want to get a better feel for the people who are so often in the headlines of this crypto space, this one is worth checking out.

* It has utility, meaning it solves a real problem. Cryptos should be disruptive, it’s one of my favorite attributes of this space. Look for a cryptocurrency that was created to solve a real problem that actually exists. Make sure they aren’t making up a problem in order to justify the existence of their coin. I’ve seen plenty of presentations where the representative seems very passionate about the project and it’s potential and yet when asked the simple question of “why do you need your own coin?” They stutter and fail to provide a legit explanation, because quite frankly the real answer is they (most likely) will be holding most of the coins if they are holding an ICO or IEO and they want to make money by convincing you it’s valuable.

* Their Github commits are consistent even if the prices are dropping. (BUIDL)This is a great indication that those who are involved with actually building and developing the network are doing so because they actually believe that what they are building has substance and deserves to be built no matter the season of the market. Avoid fair weather dev teams.

* The team has strived for the most fair distribution of coins- Mineable from the very beginning- best bet at avoiding whales that can pump and dump the coin. Many have been scarred from the pump and dump ICOs of 2017 and rightfully so, I’m also quite partial to networks that have committed to staying asic resistant in an effort to keep the ability to mine the coin as open and available to as many people as possible.

* As decentralized as possible- to be robust against any outside pressures that could cause them to sacrifice/compromise things like user privacy. No limits on validating nodes I know some may favor delegated proof of stake networks like Bitshares, Steem and EOS but that is a bottleneck no matter how you frame it. You should always value very highly open source code and permission less blockchains, if it’s possible for anyone entity to make changes to the network without the consent of other nodes, this is a blaring sign that the blockchain is centralized and should not be considered robust at all.

* This last one has to do with the Lindy effect, (the future life expectancy is proportional to its current age) If it’s survived the test of time and subsequent big bull and bear markets, with a growing network, chances are the tech is strong and it will continue to be successful into the future. Although most people want to get in early (which no one in crypto now should be concerned because judging by the awareness of this crypto space we are still quite the early birds) the fact of the matter is, the newer the coin, the higher the risk of failure.

This cryptocurrency space is growing and gaining exposure to those who have their noses deep in the traditional financial markets. Much like anyone who is first introduced to this space, these guys can see some potential. But let me be clear, they are not seeing the same kind of potential as we do. They see a new market they can use to do more of their same old tricks. We’re seeing more and more companies trying to “merge crypto with traditional markets”. There is one issue here for these guys and I’ll explain it as this video progresses, but first, here is a brief review of the environment which ultimately helped inspire the creation of the first so far successful cryptocurrency, that is Bitcoin and all of its successors.

Let’s take a quick look at derivatives markets. They are massive and account for reportedly trillions of dollars worth of debt, (we’re going to talk about that concept of reportedly, but first) all with very questionable third parties that cover losses using money printed out of thin air. Case in point, the investment banks that were servicing these derivatives, think: Wells Fargo, JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, they all couldn’t pass it on to anyone else and therefore were the ones left holding the bag when the housing market bubble collapsed.

They took on losses that very easily would have left them bankrupt, jobless and broke. But instead of allowing those investment banks suffer the repercussions of terrible business practices and immoral actions, the US government decided to use its tax payers money, to the tune of trillions of dollars and perform what we all fondly know as the big bank bailouts. These bankers ended up seeing massive bonuses as a reward for “being good at their jobs” while US citizens watched their pensions and houses disappear and eventually this whole debacle affected other countries world wide that were involved in the US markets. It should have been a wake up call for everyone, and perhaps it was.

So let’s get it clear, For those who are incredibly worried about derivatives leeching it’s reputation into this space in the form of Bitcoin futures, there are some distinct differences between traditional markets and this crypto space. I’m not a particular fan of bitcoin futures, because they are pure speculation of the price and those who get into them really have no interest in being able to truly own the hardest asset and use it and experience that liberating feeling of being able to transfer value in a peer to peer fashion with out the permission of some bank to use your own money.
But they do now exist and so with that comes this reminder: This crypto space is still a free market, there are no business that are “too big to fail” no government will bail out companies who make the same kind of mistakes seen by the investment banks we all know and love. Specifically pertaining to Bitcoin, it being a public and permission less blockchain affords anyone the ability to know the exact status of the actual asset that is Bitcoin and its network. Unlike the housing market in 2007 and 2008 which had completely fabricated AAA ratings for loans that were actually quite unsafe.

You don’t have to rely on trusting some third party to lie to you, for any public and permission less, open source blockchain, you are completely free to investigate the code, set up your own node, and be a part of the network itself, allowing you to personally see and verify the transactions occurring. With an asset that has a known, set supply that cannot be altered to service the whims of whoever decides they want to bail out a company. The birth of Bitcoin and subsequent cryptocurrencies have brought us a kind of autonomy and transparency to monetary tools the likes of which have never been seen. It’s still valid to get excited about that fact, no matter what the price of Bitcoin is.

It can be easy to forget what this space is all about especially with all of the noise generated by attention seeking headlines and governmental interventions and the ever present question of when will cryptos be palatable for the masses. In my humble opinion, cryptocurrencies shouldn’t be palatable, they should seek to be disruptive and those who can recognize the value that those disruptive cryptos provide will use them to their advantage.
And that my friends is what being an early adopter is all about. Being able to recognize the value of something without needing to wait for validation by anyone else.

Obviously times are different now for anyone who is new to this space compared to 5 years ago. Times are different and the people are different. Before Bitcoin was launched, the best way to pursue hard money and hedge against the decisions made by the federal reserve or other central banks was to get your hands on physical precious metals like gold and silver. Holding physical gold and silver is always a good idea, but using those for everyday purchases isn’t exactly realistic. I don’t want this to turn into a precious metals versus cryptocurrency debate because they both have their strengths.
But I bring this up because Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies (not all cryptos are created equal, remember that.) But Bitcoin at least was created to build on top of those qualities that gold and silver have. For example, It has a total supply that is 100% known, predetermined and irrevocable. Additionally, the coins can be transferred in a peer to peer fashion without the requirement of a third party intermediary to verify the legitimacy of the coins being transferred. These two aspects mixed with the fact that these coins are completely digital cannot be counterfeited and secured with levels of cryptography are what make Bitcoin and other similar cryptocurrencies a logical next step in the evolution of monetary tools.

These are the types of attributes that early adopters of crypto are on the look out for. This is what gives them strong hands to hold for the long term and reap the benefits of being an early adopter.
My point here is this, if you are new in the crypto space, even now, you’re still an early adopter but only technically. Even though watching this video now is a great start and you should continue to pursue understanding in this space across many different platforms, I want to encourage you to think of being an early adopter as a mindset rather than an expiration date. Early adopters are often contrarians, independent thinkers who question everything but have learned which core values are important to recognize and will ring true well into the future.

Here are some things that I’ve learned from my time spent over the past 6 plus years in this crypto universe:

Decentralization is an attribute that can be applied on several different levels. When it comes to standing up against any entity be it governmental or corporate for whoever wants to impart their control, decentralization is one hell of a defense.

Platforms that have CEOs have bottlenecks that will lead them to sacrifice privacy of the end user it’s just a matter of time.

This one is just a good old life lesson that is always relevant and that is, actions speak louder than words. People love to announce future announcements in this space, it’s all just noise. Look at what’s actually being built, and how that reflects what they respect. Things removing third parties, and censorship, allowing for privacy and autonomy. These are the pillars of this crypto space. There is a lot of noise out there and you’re certainly free to participate in this space however you see fit, stick around long enough and you’ll begin to easily recognize what has real staying power.
