Crypto Market Update and Trading Digest 11.11


 

Insight

       The market had a strong pull-back yesterday from false news of a Evergrande default. The Evergrande situation has been made to feel like a ticking timebomb. BTC fell from 65k to 62.5k in a matter of hours. News of a completed payment was later released from reliable sources and many in the market saw the opportunity to enter positions at substantially lower prices. The market is confidently climbing back up today.

This goes to show how quickly markets can become fearful. At the end, fear and greed are the true market drivers. It’s hard to separate oneself from the emotion of the moment and to stick to a plan, but it is vital for success. In the moment, it’s best to see these events as small opportunities. The lucrative ones will come during the large bear markets which occur in crypto.

Events like these emphasize that buying and holding long term continues to be one of the most effective strategies. Every retail trader should have a large portion of their portfolio allocated towards that purpose. Taking chances into small altcoins can be very profitable but comes at the risk of losing all your investment. There really isn’t any reason to ape all your funds into risky, small cap altcoins when some of the best protocols can still give you 2x to10x returns.

NOOB Lesson of the day

What is a decentralized stablecoin?

    Yesterday I gave some basics about stablecoins 🔗 . A decentralized stablecoin works much the same, but there is no third-party control when it comes to decentralized coins. They utilize algorithms, smart contracts and supply/demand structures to keep their peg. Decentralized stablecoins are fully transparent on a publicly verified blockchain. UST and DAI are some of the more common decentralized stablecoins.  

Why is the market slowly transitioning to decentralized stablecoin?

     Centralized stablecoins are backed by collateral that is controlled by an institution. Tether, the makers of USDT, back their USDT coin with variety of methods to include fiat, bonds, corporate debt and even some crypto. Coin Bureau did an excellent video on the topic🔗 in July. The centralization of these assets turn these institutions basically into large unregulated banks. The risk here could be tremendous.

     The issues with centralized stablecoins has caught the eye of US regulators. Some talks are going as far as to track all transactions. The President’s administration has even claimed they will enact measures if nothing is done. Many predict that along with tracking will come taxing and loss of privacy.

Decentralized stablecoins are trustless in nature and often there is no central entity to regulate. If regulators start enacting strong restrictions and tracking on centralized versions, you can expect the market to start swaying towards decentralization. This is a trend that has already begun.

If you read yesterday’s report, there are ways to profit off the trend into decentralized stablecoins under the LUNA section. 🔗
