Bitcoin Weekly: The $40b Consensys Dump

Consensys 2018 is over. History did not repeat itself as several forecasters were predicting. Instead we went the other way and dumped nearly $40b of the total crypto market capitalization this week. We cover some of the reasons analysts are claiming for the dump below. However one thing can be made certain, predicting the way Bitcoin will move in the short term is similar to flipping a coin. There are certainly no absolutes in this space. Which is why in the courses we teach at ProButterfly we always build and trade according to a plan. One which has three...

Bitcoin Weekly: Consensys 2018 Incoming

Bitcoin Weekly: Consensys 2018 Incoming Last week we discussed how Bitcoin was approaching key levels. It hit the resistance line at $10k and unfortunately didn’t have the momentum to pull through.

The Beginner’s Guide to Understanding Economic Moats

by: Tam Ging Wien The term economic moat was coined by Warren Buffet to describe the sustainable competitive advantages which a business is able to maintain over its competitors.

When investing in businesses, we want to ensure that these businesses have one...

Bitcoin Reflections: Momentum Building
