Now that the FOMO behind DeFi and Ethereum’s failed bull-run is more or less behind us, it leaves me questioning what comes next.
I am also evaluating how relevant current market activity will be to the outcomes I am looking for in future investment opportunities.
My conclusion is that we are at a “fight or flight” type of market-moment where the market is sitting somewhat idle like it was before the recent bull runs from Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH).
I am hoping for one of two things: Either a hard dip for a larger investment opportunity or a hard bull run I can spot before it takes off completely.
I wouldn’t mind a whale flop, to be honest. It’s been a while since I’ve seen the whales do anything substantial, and during this “10K” resilience phase, I am very curious to see how the big fish react.
I just hope I am home and available to watch the markets when it does happen; it’s time to upgrade my android with my new Ledger Nano X so I can work the markets on the go – I get paid road-time in the passenger seat (two-person job), and no one cares if I watch the markets between stops.
Bitcoin is still in a “relatively stable” place at $10,600 to $10,700 USD:
Tezos appears to STILL be in a prime buyers market, especially due to dips like this where you see repeated hard recovery:
The life of school/work/personal has led me to very little sleep and a nice reduction in my passive income. However, my overall income is more considerable now, and the bills are paid while I hold 100% or above in all classes so far. I’m figuring it out – the crypto life alongside a full life. I was no fool to guess I’d be getting less sleep and wouldn’t get to publish as often, but I am managing. It helps that they are only second-year classes.
Basic Attention Token (BAT): My favorite token and my recent largest concern. I was able to write about BAT & Brave in Art History in relation to how modern museums are publishing digital art/intellectual property, and the Ted Talk was in regard to how artwork has become monetized, mainly through the advertisement industry. I still don’t think BAT is going anywhere, but Ethereum is putting BAT in a bad place in the short-term.
However, this means BAT prices are back to about 0.25c USD, and that could make for an excellent long-term investment. I’m counting on it:
I’ve been using Stellar Lumens (XLM) via ChangeNOW for all of my exchanges. XLM is also at a very low price point for investment despite Bitcoin holding its recovery at under 0.08c USD.
You can’t beat the low fees, speed, and environmentally friendly aspect of Stellar; unless Coinbase were to add Nano to their list of supported currencies finally. Binance supports them, but I can’t stand Binance’s fees or user interface. Either beats our current policy to let Ethereum rape us with fees.
Ethereum: Where the hell is 2.0 and why are the gas fees still so high? I went from loving you to hating you really fast…
I suppose it’s back to the stacking satoshi’s and waiting for the next good opportunity. While I have no loyalty to the coin, I have a feeling Tezos is going to do something dramatic in the coming weeks. The war for yield-oriented coins and tokens, like DeFi, has yet to crown a king.
Who will be king for PoS?
I vote Tezos, with Compound for a runner-up.
Who should be king after Bitcoin for PoW?
I vote Nano, hands down.
Who is most likely to become king in DeFi?
I have yet to make a call on this one; there are too many pump and dumps going on that could potentially develop long-term.
Stay smart & Stay Safe, everyone.
Questions and comments are always welcome; feel free to let me know your thoughts on who may become the king of each: PoS, PoW, and DeFi.
