Here Is What Will Push the Approval of the CBOE Bitcoin ETF Before The End of 2018

Published

on

Bitcoin ETF

The view in the crypto-verse is that the CBOE Sponsored Bitcoin ETF at the SEC is the key to a certain Bitcoin (BTC) Bull run in the crypto markets. This month of August is expected by many crypto traders as the month we find out if the SEC is all for a Bitcoin ETF being approved. There are also some chances of the decision being postponed. However, we have already had the Winklevoss ETF  being rejected and this is adding to the skepticism of another being approved soon.

But this was before the Intercontinental Exchange – who happen to be the owners of the New York Stock Exchange – announced that they will be partnering with Starbucks, BCG, and Microsoft, to launch a firm known as Bakkt. This firm’s chief goal will be to make Bitcoin, and all other digital assets, part and parcel of viable investment options on Wallstreet.

This fact is best exemplified by CNBC’s Brian Kelly who is noted as stating the following in a recent commentary on the News Channel:

“This is huge news. I think the market is completely underappreciated. So let us talk about why this is the biggest news of the year for Bitcoin.”

In the commentary by Brian, he also added how this new firm will pave the way for the approval of a Bitcoin ETF:

“It paves the way for a Bitcoin ETF. Last week I stood here and said you know what, I don’t think the Bitcoin ETF will get approved. And guess what? The Winklevoss ETF got rejected. Why?

Because there was not a US regulated exchange and there wasn’t US regulated custody.”

This points out the major reasons the Winklevoss ETF was rejected. Perhaps they can now even launch a new filing of a rule change at the SEC. In the meantime, this new development on Wallstreet by the biggest stock exchange in the world means that the SEC will need to recalibrate their facts before rejecting the pending CBOE Bitcoin ETF.

Brian Kelly would go on to explain how easy this makes for an ETF to be approved:

“That’s going to make it a lot easier for an ETF to come through. It is even better than Bitcoin Futures…[because] they are talking about getting this into you 401k. They are talking about getting it into your Schwab, Fidelity or TDAmeritrade account…you are going to be able to buy a Bitcoin ETF, a Bitcoin Mutual Fund. It expands the universe.”

With this fact in mind, a Bitcoin Bull Run is only a matter of time in the markets. Even with the current decline of BTC, traders are very much optimistic that the tides will turn in their favor with a full-blown Bull run. Some price predictions put BTC at $54k by the end of the year.

AAX Crypto Exchange Announces Massive Growth Numbers in August

Published

AAX Exchange

As the crypto market continues to surge, new traders continue to enter the market on a daily basis.  One of the first questions that new traders have is where should they trade crypto.  While there are countless options for buying and selling digital assets, traders need to exercise extreme caution and perform due diligence to avoid scam exchanges as well as places that have limited or no volume.  While the main platforms such as Coinbase, Binance, and Bittrex will always have significant volume, their fees are known to be on the expensive side.  AAX, a next-generation cryptocurrency exchange with the lowest futures fees in the world, represents a compelling alternative that traders should consider.

Growth Announcement

A few of the most important issues to consider when deciding whether to use an exchange are the number of users and the volume.  On August 7, AAX announced that in a little over two weeks, the exchange doubled its user base bringing the grand total of registered users to over 200,000.  At this rate, AAX may surpass the million mark later this year which would be an incredible achievement and is most certainly due to a variety of factors including extremely low fees and revolutionary technology.

Institutional-Grade Exchange

When AAX decided to build its platform, it set out to meet the demands of both institutional and retail investors.  In order to achieve that goal, the exchange operates at the highest possible…

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021

WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…

The Pros And Cons Of Cryptocurrency

Published

cryptocurrency

Many facets of our lives are now digitized––money is no exception. 

Have you noticed that paper money is on its way to being obsolete because so many people receive direct deposit and love the simplicity of their debit card? 

Not to mention, cash carries germs, as we’ve heard lots about during the pandemic. Many businesses have turned to card only options in light of this. 

But what about cryptocurrency?

You probably heard everyone raving about it a few years ago, but the excitement’s calmed down quite a bit. That doesn’t mean that it’s not a viable option you should keep in mind. 

What’s Cryptocurrency? 

Let’s start with the basic definition of cryptocurrency so we’re all on the same page. Cryptocurrency utilizes cryptographic methods and complex coding systems to encrypt sensitive information during data transfers. This protects your funds and personal information on a whole different level. 

These transactions are virtually impenetrable due to the combination of mathematical and technological protocols created and put in place. This aspect of cryptocurrency is what makes it safer. Also, the details of transactions are kept private. No one can see who sent what, etc., because those rigorous mathematical and technological protocols protect it.

The Pros: 

Different From Traditional Banking Transactions

One thing people hate about traditional banks is the fact that they can…
