‘Bitcoin (BTC) Manipulation Did Happen. But to push BTC to Current Low Levels,’ says John McAfee

John McAfee, the Crypto Crusader, has postulated a new theory of how Bitcoin (BTC) was manipulated. This was after a team of researchers at the University of Texas (Austin) released a research paper that suggests that Tether (USDT) was used to ‘prop’ or ‘hold’ the price of Bitcoin during times of turmoil in the crypto markets.

John McAfee has since negated this theory from the researchers via Twitter and had this to say to his loyal followers:

“The mainstream media – controlled by the existing power structure – reports that price manipulation was involved in Bitcoin’s price rise last year. Manipulation did happen, but it was a conspiracy to push the price of Bitcoin to the absurd low level that you see today. Wise up!”

One Twitter user would reply to the tweet and add that those in the financial sector and with enough power, are manipulating the prices so they themselves can buy in at a lower level. The twitter user had this to say:

“The powers that be, have no plans to lose power over the financial sector, whatever the future of currency holds. They’ll push the prices down as far as possible and push as many people out as they can before they admit to jumping on board. Class warfare at its finest.”

McAfee has always fought for all crypto enthusiasts for he believes that technology and decentralization will triumphant over government regulation and interference. He has also vehemently rebuked the recent utterances of the SEC Chairman who has stated that all ICOs are Securities. McAfee would respond to this by saying:

“I will not now, nor will I ever, accept this as a reality. I am submitting, now, to this law, but I will fight with every last breath to ensure that this absurd overreach by the SEC will not stand!! It will not stand!”

The fight in John McAfee is one to be admired for he has also announced his candidacy for the 2020 US Presidential Elections so as to best serve the crypto-community. He is very realistic in his Presidential bid when he says that he probably does not stand a chance at winning. But the process of being a candidate will assist in creating a better America by allowing him to stand at the world’s greatest stage and to tell everyone the truth.

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…

There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000.  Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally.  A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind.  In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive.  That prediction appears to be playing out as expected.  Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive.  Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets.  One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
