There have also been a number of interesting events happening in the crypto space this last week, and some prominent technological proposals put forward. To continue the conversation have a loko at the links and videos below, and if you have any questions please ask away. 

 

1) Joseph Lubin, co-founder of ethereum and founder of ConsenSys, recently spoke at SXSW 2018. You can see a great 20 minute interview on Facebook here, and the Observer followed up with an article on how Blockchain could change everyday life

 

As one Reddit user who was at the event quoted "The ballroom was full which shows the strong interest regarding the technology. It was great to learn a bit more about what they are currently working on and how they are definitively thinking long term. No comment on the price but he made the point that the recent spike is good to attract attention, talents and capital to improve the technology."

 

2) With international womens day taking place last week there have been a couple of interesting articles out discussing women in blockchain. The NYT and Wired both ran interesting articles.

 

The NTY article on Women in Cryptocurrencies Push Back Against ‘Blockchain Bros’

The Wired article on Women in Cryptocurrency. A new effort to grow their ranks

 

3) Technological breakthroughs are 'pretty close' according to Vitalik Buterin, ethereums inventor. The much discussed and clearly road mapped 'Casper Proof of Stake (PoS)' which is set to overtake the the Proof of Work model. You can read that article here and watch a very enthusiastic individual give a parallel talk in the plaza to give those who couldn't make the talk a rough overview. 

 

For many within the space, they see Plasma Cash revolutionary and a key concept required to continue the scaling debate. 

 

4) A great Podcast (available on a number of providers such as Apple, Overcast, etc) which gives a clear and detailed look at some of the most important and noteworthy events in the cryptosphere over the course of an hour. Check it out on 11fs.com here.

 

5) Finally, if any of your questions weren't answered please feel free to add them below and we will try and get someone to reply to them.

@rinmy2000 I would agree. Altho the sec and commodities dude from a month or so ago seemed to have an ok understanding.

 

The issue is this is a totally new asset class and they’re trying to fit it into preceding frameworks. Bets on how long that lasts before they see it failing and cobble together something new? You wouldn’t trade grain or co2 emissions on a stock based frame work so why squeeze a new asset into a stock / commodity / futures / options framework.

 

I would totally disagree. I think these chats have been great. If you don’t think the old COO of ethereum, block chain incubator CEO, and ex of slock.it doesn’t add anything to the crypto chat then that’s crazy. If you’re near London I’d suggest you go to one of his meet ups.

 

That said I mirror your thoughts on NC. Even from a price action point of view he didn’t seem to have an opinion. Maybe it was the camera or live show aspect. Who knows...

    • Gold on the rise, as Brent crude and natural gas show signs of impending weakness Ongoing trends look likely to continue, with gold grinding higher as Brent crude and natural gas show signs of potential impending weakness. Source: Bloomberg      Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Thursday 09 February 2023  Gold grinds higher after collapse into trendline support Gold ended last week with a bang as price collapsed into a fresh four-week low. However, despite growing calls for a reversal across a number of asset classes, this week has seen equity markets and the dollar turn back in the direction of their prevailing trend. Given the close correlation between the dollar and gold, this signals the potential for another move higher for precious metals if money does not flow into the dollar. For gold, the current grind higher looks likely to continue, with a break back below the recent low of $1861 required to create a fresh bearish outlook. Source: ProRealTime Brent crude rebound takes price back up towards descending trendline Brent crude has spent much of the week regaining lost ground following a bearish turn that saw $10 sliced off the price in the space of a fortnight. The wider trend does remain bearish, with the descending trendline and Fibonacci resistance levels bringing the potential for another bearish turn before long. With price currently at the 61.8% retracement ($85.20), there is a good chance we see the bears come into play before long. Watch for a move through 80 on the stochastic to signal a bearish turn from a momentum perspective. To the upside, we would need to see a push up through the $89.01 resistance level to bring confidence of a more protracted bullish rebound. Source: ProRealTime Natural gas turns lower from Fibonacci resistance Natural gas has turned lower once again after a rebound in the early part of the week. This is a market that has been a consistent performer for the bears, with the relatively balmy European winter ensuring that storage levels remain well topped up throughout the drawdown period of the year. While we did see a push into the 76.4% Fibonacci level on Tuesday, price has been reversing lower in line with the wider bearish trend. With a very consistent bearish trend still in play, we would need to see a push up through the $2.789 swing-high to bring about a more positive outlook. Until then, further downside looks likely.

    • ASX 200 afternoon report: 9th of February 2023 Find out all the latest information on the ASX 200 market. Updated as of 9th February, 3.00 pm AEDT.   Source: Bloomberg   Indices ASX Coal Dividend S&P/ASX 200 Interest rate  Tony Sycamore | Market Analyst, Australia | Publication date: Thursday 09 February 2023  The ASX 200 trades 43 points (-0.57%) lower at 7487 at 3.00 pm Sydney time. The ASX 200 has slumped today, taking its lead from a fall on Wall Street, as Fed Speakers hit the wires to beat the hawkish drums and remind markets that higher rates will be required for longer to bring down inflation. IT sector The tech sector experienced losses today, led by Google. Google fell 7.44% after its new AI intelligence chatbot Bard underwhelmed Sezzle fell 8.53% ZIP fell 5.91% Megaport fell 5.65% as it elected not to pay a dividend Novonix fell 4.72% to $1.72. AGL fell 11% after reporting a loss of $ 1.1 billion for the first half of the year. It also slashed guidance and its interim dividend to 8c per share. Elsewhere, Real Estate heavyweight Mirvac slumped 5% to $2.28 as wet weather, interest rate hikes, and labour shortages limited its first-half earnings. Financial sector The pressure of this week’s RBA rate hike and intensification in the fight for new deposits has hada negative effect on all banks apart from ANZ. ANZ has added 0.23% to $23.85 after its upbeat trading update NAB fell 0.8% to $31.80 Westpac fell 0.36% to $23.82 CBA fell 0.4% to $109.89. Mining sector The 40% fall in the price of coal out of Newcastle since the start of the year continues to weigh on the coal miners. Whitehaven coal fell 5.62% to $8.06 New Hope fell 4.9% to $5.81 Yancoal fell 4.62% to $5.87 Coronado Coal fell 4.65% Fortescue Metals added 0.89% to $22.68 BHP added 0.02% to $48.13 Rio Tinto fell 0.4% to $123.65. Technical analysis We view the ASX 200 as being stretched to the upside and overbought after five straight weeks of gains. For the Elliott Wave followers, there is a five-wave advance from the October 6411 low to this week’s 7567.7 high. All of which warn that a pullback is looming. A break of support at 7460/50 (coming from recent lows) would indicate that a medium-term high is in place and that a corrective pullback is underway. We continue to favour trimming longs ahead of the bull market 7632 high and looking to either buy a sustained break of the 7632 high or a pullback into the 7200/7000 support area.
