Top 3 Trends in the Crypto Space Right Now



trends in the crypto space

With the price of Bitcoin on a tearing run, it’s hard to say we’re all in this for the tech. However, luckily for the advancement of the space, beyond the speculators, there are plenty of blockchain companies building, innovating, and pushing the envelope. With that in mind, here are the top three trends in the crypto space right now.

1. IEOs (Initial Exchange Offerings)

ICOs are dead. Every man, woman, and their respective dogs know that the SEC pretty much killed that phenomenon. The downward pattern from 2018 that continued into this year shows an almost uncontested freefall.

ICOs are dead

Perhaps it was a good thing, considering that more than $1.2 billion of crypto funds were stolen through scam projects and inside deals in the first quarter of 2019 alone.

But while many people in the space predicted the rise of STOs (Security Token Offerings), that particular phenomenon is still waiting at the gates. Many company’s hands are tied or they’re halted by the regulators.

Tax refunds are down this year, but not for Louisa.



tax refunds

Tax refunds are down, in fact they have dropped by 8.4 percent, down to a 2019 average of $1,865 from $2,035 last year. This drop has some workers who usually get a refund paying out of pocket in addition to what’s already withheld from their paychecks.

But not all working people are taking a hit. An acquaintance who’s a UX developer at a design firm, and also operates a side hustle trading crypto under an LLC, told me she found a way to hang on to the money the Trump tax plan would otherwise pilfer from her earnings. Through a membership with a financial research platform, Louisa (not her real name) has been able to tuck the money away where it’s counted as a business loss, and she still has access to it for later.

Stumbling across a tax trap door

Louisa dabbles in crypto, although she doesn’t describe herself as an expert. She uses a financial research platform called the Pareto Network, which connects investors on a peer-to-peer basis. There are other platforms like this, but Pareto turns out to have a uniquely beneficial glitch.

It caters to entry level dabblers like Louisa, while also providing more advanced tools for higher volume investors. One of…

These Are the Crypto Influencers to Follow in 2019



crypto influencers

Last year was supposed to be the year of blockchain. But bitcoin’s belly flop put a damper on public interest and mainstream adoption remains elusive. But blockchain pioneers made some important strides in 2018, and people are now using it to vote, deal in fine art, and microfinance entrepreneurs in refugee camps. Crypto evolved and even became a national currency for the first time.

The rough year for bitcoin and cryptos was offset by the hard work and creative developments from some very bright minds. These are the leaders and influencers taking crypto into the future this year.

Amber Baldet

Baldet left a high profile job developing blockchain for JP Morgan so she could launch her own dapp platform. She made Forbes’ 40 Under 40 list, and advocates for building bridges between the public and private sectors when it comes to blockchain implementation. Now she’s forecasting a dark vision of the future under surveillance capitalism, and giving us the keys to navigating it by thinking about our personal data as the new money.

Laura Shin

As Forbes’ senior crypto editor, Shin was the first mainstream journalist to cover crypto…
