Is the Crypto Bottom In Yet?

Tristram Waye for Bitvo | Feb 2, 2023

Dolphin - Is the Crypto Bottom In Yet?After a substantial lift in crypto, it begs the question, was that the bottom? 

  • The answer, of course, is no idea.  Because bottoms are not events but rather a process.  After a challenging crypto winter, the relief is welcome, but the question of whether it’s over requires some evidence.
    • This lift might be what is known as a bear trap. Bear traps entice buyers before heading back down.
    • On the other hand, it might be the beginning of a new trading range for bitcoin and ether.
    • So let’s have a look at some things that might tell us about where we are and how to use what we discover.

See:  Is Crypto Bouncing Back, or Bull Trap?

  • Be careful picking market tops and bottoms
    • Jesse Livermore:  “One of the most helpful things anyone can learn is to give up trying to catch the last eighth —or the first. These two are the most expensive eighths in the world. They have cost stock traders in aggregate enough millions of dollars to build a concrete highway across the continent.”
    • So on the upside, this means picking tops, getting on the short side too early and getting squeezed.
    • On the downside, it means catching falling knives trying to pick the bottom.
    • In both cases, the financial impact is clear. But there is the psychological component as well. And this can present a bigger problem in some ways.

  • Signals and sentiment:
    • The press will post stories on the cover of their magazines and newspapers. And they are almost always wrong.
    • But the response to bad news becomes important to watch. Any negative news that doesn’t generate downside should be examined.
    • Sentiment is an interpretation of the bullish or bearish lean of various participants.  Crypto has an enormous range of voices coming from a wide variety of content. And Twitter is a great place to get a gauge of sentiment. Here is where you can take a wide view of the voices around the space.
    • Another sign of a bottom is the reaction to bad news. On the way to the bottom, every bit of negative news results in selling. The bias eventually becomes sell any story or rumor.  We saw the last batch of selling occur with the FTX debacle. But since then, selling has been rather muted.
      • At the bottom, negative news has little or no impact. Sellers no longer care. Lots of the sell side overhang is eaten up. And the response to news starts to change. Near the bottom, negative news goes from bearish to bullish.
    • The demand for leverage will be low at the bottom and will have limited availability. Risk parameters at exchanges will also be relatively tight at the bottom. So even if you want leverage, and are fine with the cost of capital, the amount of leverage available and the margin required is likely quite a bit higher.  Less leverage will mean less risk of downside liquidations.
    • Bitcoin seems to be trading in a loose inverse relationship relative to the DXY.

Hypersonic flight, 3D printed humanoid robots, groceries delivered by drones, molecular biomarkers for early detection of malignant tumors

  • Report: That's the conclusion from her annual Big Ideas report published on Tuesday by her money management firm. This 153-page deep dive attempts to handicap the potential commercial opportunities awaiting those startups and incumbents quick to embrace promising new technologies set to supplant older, obsolete ones.
  • Wood believes companies that succeed in disrupting existing industries will experience “super-exponential growth”, lifting their cumulative value by an average annual rate of 40% in the process to reach a staggering $200 trillion by 2030.
    • To put that gargantuan figure into perspective, the International Monetary Fund estimated last April that the size of the entire world's economy would cross the $100 trillion mark in nominal GDP terms by the end of the year.

  • Forecasting winners: Instead of emphasizing spreadsheets and valuation models that often focus on short-term fundamentals like a company’s forward-year cash flow or earnings per share, her ARK Invest research team prefers a top-down analysis of what macroeconomic problems inhibit social progress before examining which innovators are doing the most to solve them.
    • Much of the research conclusions in Big Ideas is based on predicting when technologies may reach mass market maturity by employing Wright’s Law, a general theory from 1936 that attempts to model cost degradation curves over time.
  • Wood’s team identifies 14 distinct technologies they believe will feed off each other, broadly converging into five overarching investment themes ("innovation platforms") grouped around artificial intelligence, robotics, energy storage, public blockchains and the multi-omic sequencing of digitalized biological data.

William Shatner Feature-length Documentary Reaches $790,000 Equity Crowdfunding Goal (less than a week)

Variety | Todd Spangler | Jan 31, 2023

Image: Wikipedia, William Shatner

William Shatner fans bought up all the shares in the actor’s forthcoming feature-length documentary “You Can Call Me Bill” in less than a week — shelling out nearly $790,000 and topping the film’s crowdfunding goal.

  • Legion M’s equity crowdfunding round for the Shatner documentary, exploring the life and career of the beloved 91-year-old actor, as of Monday had sold out from reservation holders before the company opened the offering to the public. Within four days, the project raised $789,655 from 1,338 investors.
  • Distribution: The documentary has a production budget of $565,101, according to Legion M’s listing. After “You Can Call Me Bill” deducts expenses to third parties for accounting, legal, marketing and administrative fees, 100% of any revenue generated will be distributed proportionally to the film’s investors until they have recouped their initial investment. Any additional net revenue after that will be split, with 33% going to shareholders and 67% distributed to the producers of the film.
    • With the Shatner doc, fans were able to invest directly in the Shatner documentary for a minimum of $100, subject to certain SEC restrictions, and they will recoup their money before any profits are shared with Shatner, Legion M or the film’s producer.
  • The film is touted as “an intimate portrait of William Shatner’s personal journey across nine decades of a boldly lived and fully realized life.” The documentary “strips away all the masks he has worn during his storied career” — from Captain James T. Kirk to T.J. Hooker and from Alexander the Great to the Priceline Negotiator — “to reveal the man behind it all.”

William Shatner: 

“For years I’ve had people approaching me to do a documentary about my life, but I turned them all down because it didn’t feel like the right fit. When I heard how Legion M wanted to incorporate audiences to be a part of it, it was perfect. Fans have been responsible for my career — it only seems right that they should own this doc.”

The Use of Cryptocurrency in the Fundraising and Venture Capital Industry

Guest Post | Feb 1, 2023

Image: Unsplash/Christina @ wocintechchat.com

Cryptocurrency has taken the world by storm since its entrance into mainstream awareness. This new form of money is quickly becoming a sought-after resource for individuals looking to acquire venture capital or to fund startups. The possibilities that cryptocurrency provides in the fundraising and venture capital industry are unique, adding another layer of complexity to the already intricate process, which requires careful consideration from entrepreneurs and investors alike.

This is because cryptocurrencies offer several advantages over traditional fiat currencies, such as lower transaction costs, higher security, and quicker settlements. Cryptocurrencies are also becoming more widely accepted as a form of payment. Because of this, cryptocurrencies are becoming more popular in the fundraising and venture capital sectors. In fact, some startups and venture capital firms now accept and trade cryptocurrency for investment deals.

What is cryptocurrency fundraising?

Cryptocurrency fundraising refers to the process of raising funds for a project or venture by accepting cryptocurrency as a form of payment. This type of funding has become increasingly popular in recent years as it enables companies to tap into a global pool of investors. Using cryptocurrencies to raise money is an option that works well for initiatives tied to blockchain technology. A popular form of Cryptocurrency fundraising is the initial coin offering (ICO).

An initial coin offering is a fundraising event within the blockchain technology framework. It’s similar to an initial public offering (IPO), except that it employs cryptocurrency instead of traditional currency. There are two different kinds of initial coin offerings: private and public.

When a company makes a private initial coin offering, only a select group of investors who have met certain criteria are permitted to participate, whereas a public initial coin offering is a form of crowdfunding that is directed at the broader public. In addition, the initial public offering is considered more democratic than other forms of investing since virtually anybody can become an investor. Other forms of cryptocurrency fundraising include initial exchange offerings (IEO) and initial decentralized exchange offerings (IDO).

What is venture capital financing?

Venture capital is the funds that individuals invest in businesses in return for a stake in the company. Most of the funds generated are invested in the company's growth and expansion. Venture capitalists prefer to back startup companies that can develop into substantial enterprises, have a clear strategy for the future, and provide a favorable return on investment.

Venture capital funding is usually divided into five stages. These stages are pre-seed, which is also known as stage 0; seed capital (stage 1), startup capital (series A), early stage (series B), and expansion stage (series C).

Venture capital can serve various purposes for a startup, each tailored to the company's specific requirements at a given moment. For example, crypto venture capital, in the context of cryptocurrencies, can be used to speed up development, launch the project, recruit key personnel, and ready the business for an initial coin offering.

People investing in venture capital funds have the same goal: to amass a large fortune in a short period of time. Accordingly, administrators of such funds often extend invitations to potential investors using a prospectus.

Cryptocurrency fundraising and traditional fundraising

Cryptocurrency fundraising is often compared to traditional equity fundraising, as both involve the exchange of funds for a stake in the project. However, there are a few differences between cryptocurrency fundraising and traditional fundraising. Firstly, cryptocurrency fundraising is often done through initial coin offerings, a crowdfunding type. Secondly, cryptocurrency fundraising is usually open to a wider range of investors, as it does not require accreditation.

Why venture capital firms are interested in the crypto industry

There’s a rise in demand for investments in the blockchain/cryptocurrency industry. As a direct consequence, crypto venture capital companies are putting money into the crypto space to achieve high returns on their investments.

The following are some of the factors that contribute to the sector's attractiveness to potential investors:

  • The cryptocurrency/blockchain industry has tremendous room for expansion. This demonstrates the industry's rapid development and enormous growth potential.
  • Cryptocurrency investments appeal to venture capital companies due to their decentralized and distributed nature. Another main attraction of crypto finance is the exchange of tokens rather than shares at fundraising time.
  • Tokens, as opposed to shares, are often traded throughout the fundraising phase of a cryptocurrency venture. Due to these facts, venture capitalists see cryptocurrency and blockchain technology as a sector with the potential to become profitable and worthy of investment.
  • The arrival of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency has fundamentally changed the web world as we know it, making Web3 the web of the future. At this time, several firms are developing decentralized applications by using blockchain technology. Furthermore, this foreseen future is getting ever closer, due to the development and expansion of the crypto industry.

Increased transparency and accountability

All transactions on the blockchain are verified by a distributed network of nodes, making the data available to anybody. Since the blockchain record is accessible to the public, tracking the movement of money is easy, because cryptocurrencies are traded directly between digital wallets.

Ability to attract emerging investors

Raising funds through cryptocurrency could be the perfect way to get young investors interested. Not only is this a great way to access an increasingly valuable fund base, but these emerging investors come with a ready-made enthusiasm to make serious investments. Plus, it's the modern, tech-savvy solution that's sure to make any project stand out!

Lower transaction costs

Since many participants who would normally function as middlemen in financial transactions are removed from a blockchain system, the transactions are usually processed more quickly and at a lower cost. This is especially helpful when making international donations, because banking costs and procedures might reduce the overall impact of the funds.

By accepting cryptocurrency donations, venture capital firms may expand their global reach without experiencing any of the many drawbacks that often outweigh the benefits of a more geographically dispersed donor pool.

Although there are a lot of benefits linked with them, the use of cryptocurrencies comes with various challenges, such as uncertainty over regulatory requirements and market volatility.

Fractional Music Ownership Platform: SongBits

Crowdfund Insider | | Jan 25, 2023

SongBits.comMusic concert - Fractional Music Ownership Platform:  SongBits is a new platform that is planning to launch later this year that will allow users to invest in “a bit of a song from world-class artists.” Investors may then share in the song’s streaming revenues for life, according to the company.

  • A private launch is taking place at the end of this week where invitees may choose to purchase “bits” of songs by DJ, Ashley Wallbridge.

See:  Fund Tokenization: Fractional Issuance, Streamlined Redemption, and Servicing Benefits

  • How does it work (from their website)?
    • Owning a bit has three clear benefits over just listening to a song: firstly, you receive a share of the song’s streaming revenue each and every time the song is streamed worldwide on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Amazon, and more.
    • Secondly, a purchase often comes with additional exclusive benefits such as exclusive shows, tickets, downloads, merch or other cool stuff depending on the artist.
    • Finally, in addition to the benefits of actually owning a bit of a great song and all the bragging rights that go with that, you are able to gift your bits to someone else or even re-sell them at a later date.

The “music marketplace” is designed to allow investors to purchase fractional ownership in songs from “chart-topping artists, sharing in the song’s streaming royalties for life.”

European Crowdfunding Platforms Licensed Under ECSPR

Crowdfund Insider | | Jan 24, 2023

Euro - European Crowdfunding Platforms Licensed Under ECSPRIn November 2021, pan-European crowdfunding rules became actionable after approval by the European Union in 2020. Under the new rules, or European Crowdfunding Service Providers Regulation (ECSPR), a platform may raise up to €5 million from investors in all member states. This opens up investment crowdfunding to over 300 million EU citizens.

  • The industry has heralded the new rules as a transformative event – a change in policy that took around 9 years of advocacy from industry insiders.
    • At the same time, ECSPR is foundational to the concept of European monetary union – the ability for goods and capital to flow seamlessly across the EU.
    • Under the new rules, a securities crowdfunding provider must be approved by the “relevant authority” within the country where it is based. This has led to some discrepancies between regulators as some have moved quicker to craft a process for ECSPR approval while others have moved more slowly. The disparity between countries led the EU to delay full compliance until November 2023 (originally set for last November).

See:  Harmonized European Crowdfunding Rules Kickoff Allowing up to €5 million

  • After a two-year period, the updated rules are expected to be reviewed, and there is a possibility the funding cap will be raised.
  • The harmonization is expected to generate more competition as well as consolidation in the industry. Invesdor is one platform that moved quickly to merge with other platforms. ECSPR will also encourage international (or non-European) platforms to enter the EU.
    • Wefunder, one of the largest Reg CF Funding Portals in the US, was only recently approved to provide securities crowdfunding service in the EU.
    • Seedrs, once a top UK platform that has been active in Europe, was purchased by Republic in 2021.
