Ethereum News Update Yesterday, I said Ethereum is starting to front-run Bitcoin in terms of institutional support. And what happened the same day? A major pension fund launched a $50.0-million cryptocurrency investment fund—and it is based around Ethereum. The new fund comes courtesy of OMERS, one of Canada’s biggest pension funds.

Ethereum News Update Last week didn’t feel bullish for Ethereum. Nonetheless, ETH prices advanced nearly 16% in the past seven days. The lesson? Markets don’t care what we feel. Sentiment only matters insofar as it reveals the buying intentions of other investors. Look at the numbers instead. They show that Ethereum is outperforming other cryptocurrencies […]

On one hand, they don’t think Bitcoin is a stable currency; on the other, blockchain is a super-useful technology…for anything other than money. If you’re wondering why this matters, remember that Davos […]
Ethereum News Update In 2017, investors treated Ethereum and Bitcoin as if they were identical. They painted both with the same brush, meaning that when Bitcoin did well, so did Ethereum.

On the Weiss Ratings homepage, there is a live countdown to its upcoming release of “…the First Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency Grades by Any Rating Agency in the World.” Dramatic, much? Although impartial ratings are a crucial step for investment credibility, I want to remind readers that it is incredibly hard to price cryptocurrencies, much less assign them […]

ETH prices dropped 11.4% against the U.S. dollar, bringing the ETH to USD rate down to $947.05. It wasn’t pretty. But there’s some hope on the horizon because…it’s Davos time again. Every year, the global elite […]
From the outside, all digital assets look the same. A lot of volatility. A lot of upside potential. Not a lot of variety. This two-dimensional view of cryptocurrencies is pretty common among newbie investors, but experienced hands know it’s not true. There’s a world of difference between Monero and XRP, or between NEM and Dash. […]
Given the recent rollercoaster in Ethereum prices, it’s time to consider what makes ETH more valuable than the 1,400 other cryptocurrencies on the market. I call this theory “trickle-down cryptonomics”—others call it “fat protocol theory.” What am I talking about? To put it simply, Ethereum’s greatest strength is that it serves as a launching pad […]

There’s little that […]
All this week, a dark cloud hung over cryptocurrency markets. It was caused by the first batch of Bitcoin futures contracts coming due…and investors having no idea what to expect from the fallout.
