3 Key Indicators To Watch From A Crypto Asset Manager

single-image

We asked Travis Kling, founder and CIO of Ikigai Asset Management, what his go to indicator is for investing in cryptos.

He gave us these:

Cross Coin Correlation: How correlated are all other cryptos to Bitcoin. Low correlation is a sign of a healthy market. The crypto market is known to trend with Bitcoin. If correlation decreases that means coins are able to survive without Bitcoin needing to perform well.

Trading Volume: Increasing trading volume shows higher quantities of any particular coin are being traded back and forth. This means more interest is coming into the market and therefore could mean more participants.

On-Chain metrics like transactions per day and active wallet addresses: This shows the technology is being used, people trust it, and there is a need for more innovation.

Gox lost $450 million in February 2014 while Coincheck lost nearly $530 million in January 2018 in separate data breaches. Despite these large-scale hacks, the country has taken a proactive approach to cryptocurrency regulation. This article takes a look at some of the top crypto exchanges in Japan.

What is Litecoin? An Early Bitcoin Fork Nearly Identical to the Original Chain

single-image

In the world of blockchain and cryptocurrencies, there is a large number of forked protocols that inherit the majority of their properties from the parent blockchain networks. Litecoin is one such network forked from Bitcoin, the largest and most popular blockchain protocol in the world. It comes as no surprise that Litecoin’s technical details are slight modifications of Bitcoin.

What is Litecoin?

In the simplest of terms, Litecoin is one of the earliest Bitcoin forks. It is a peer-to-peer cryptocurrency created by Charlie Lee, an ex-Google employee and former Coinbase engineering director, based on Bitcoin code. Litecoin was released as an open-source software project on GitHub in the last quarter of 2011. At the time of writing, Litecoin is the sixth largest cryptocurrency with a market cap of $4.8 billion, according to CoinMarketCap data.

China, which has never done a good job in hiding its hostility towards the crypto industry, is probably moving towards banning Bitcoin mining. Japan has may soon move away from the notion that Bitcoin is a virtual currency. Ripple had mixed fortunes during the week as it announced plans to double its headcount in Singapore as it prepares to expand its service offerings in the Southeast Asia region.

In an interesting turn of events, Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao warned that Craig Wright’s claim that he is the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto may lead the exchange to delisting Bitcoin SV, an off-shoot of the November Bitcoin Cash hard fork.

In the tweet, Zhao stated that “Craig Wright is not Satoshi.”
