Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Here comes access to education which is vital to the future success of cryptocurrencies and ICO's.

One of my favourite sayings is, "Knowledge is Power."

Other counties are starting to offer degrees in this area. Gibraltar and Malta along with Ontario are at the forefront of more positive regulation in relation to blockchain, ICO's and cryptocurrencies. If memory serves me correct then Malta will be offering a degree in blockchain.

Interesting one. Thought on this being the LSE getting on the hype train, or legitimately good value for money at £1800 for the course? If this didn't come with the LSE certificate at the end, would it be truly worth it?

First of all, you must start somewhere albeit at a basic level. With LSE support/backing it gives the course more credibility.

In terms of value for money then it really just depends on what you use the course for or why you pay the money and do it. For example, if you pay £1800.00 and pass the course and then get a job in Central London for say the likes of Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Credit Suisse and then get a salary of at least £100,000.00 or more as an crypto asset manager then one could argue that the course has immense value. It is unlikely that this course would achieve that but if it does not change your life or increase your income in any way then it could provide to be of lower value. 

To be able to manage and allocate funds to crypto will require some form of qualification / accreditation due to the extreme high risks. This is merely a small starting block. Crypto Asset Management or asset managers wishing to allocate funds to cryptos will need professional qualifications. I can see a big demand for Blockchain degrees in the coming future.

Three to four year degrees will come incorporating Blockchain, Cryptocurrencies, etc. once the demand is established.

    • The pattern continues - APAC brief 12 Dec
      The pattern continues: Wall Street indices have been swinging about madly again. The pattern continues: an open, a rally or fall, then a retracement or recovery. Today we’ve had an open, a rally, then retracement, then a recovery again. There were stories behind this price-action. Everything that happened overnight appeared perfectly explicable. One wonders though if the swings in trading activity are being overly attributed to headlines. Or perhaps it’s the case that higher volatility and sensitive nerves are leading to accentuated moves. Whatever the cause, fundamentally, the bears still have control of the equity market. There is a softer intensity to the selling on Wall Street this week. However, with the extremeness of last week’s moves having not been unwound yet, what we are seeing is sellers piling in on top of sellers, bit by bit.

      ASX200: SPI futures have turned positive, after oscillating wildly during the overnight session. That contract is indicating a 17-point jump for the ASX200 at time of writing. Yesterday was a tepid but respectable day for Australian shares, managing to muster a 0.4 per cent gain for the day. Volume was slightly above the 100-day average and breadth was okay. Growth stocks led the charge, following US tech’s gains the night prior, with the health care sector up 1.7 per cent, courtesy of a strong bid for CSL and ResMed. The materials space was the biggest points score for the index, adding 8 to the overall index’s performance. The trend is still down for the ASX200, as it is with global equity indices presently. However, yesterday’s daily candle, combined with a bullish divergence on the RSI, suggests some buyers are re-entering the market in the short-term, potentially offering temporary upside to ~5700.

    • Trading in Asia was mixed as US shares stabilized overnight. In the meanwhile, the ongoing discussions between China and the US adds uncertainty.

    • Brexit pains - APAC brief 11 Dec
      Day 1 of 5: Monday looks like it may be one of those days where Wall Street hesitantly pulls itself up out of the dirt in the final hours of trade. There is just under two-hours to go in the US session, and at a high level, things appear not-too-bad. Let's return to America a little later. Whichever way we happen to end the first 24 hours of trade for the week, heightened risk, growth fears and bearishness is still driving sentiment. There has been no shift in market behaviour to indicate a market turnaround is upon us yet. If anything, the headlines regarding the macro-landscape added to the negativity. The data traders received was mixed; rather it was the numerous developments in the politico-economic sphere that inflamed trader's trepidation.

      The Brexit tragicomedy: The big story overnight must be Brexit. This week ought to be about the state of Europe, and at its outset, it has been. If the potential consequences weren't so dire, the situation would appear comical – akin to some absurd, but all-too real life Waiting for Godot re-boot. First-up, the European Court of Justice released a ruling that the UK could unilaterally cancel Brexit and revoke its action of Article 50. UK Prime Minister Theresa May has dutifully shut down that notion. But things did get sticky when Prime Minister May announced she would delay a vote in Parliament of her Brexit bill, on the understanding she lacked anywhere near the required votes to get it passed lawmakers.
