  1. Nickolas – can you please give your opinion on what to do with FIAT generated fro Crypto, if it’s in hundreds of thousands or millions? Let’s say I invested 100k in Crypto and it becomes 3 million dollars in FIAT. Where do I move it knowing a market recession is coming and banks might limit my bank account fund access? Crypto has waves up and down, so I can’t do that either. Where the hell do you store your 1 million with 100% access to it, so you can still buy stuff in the fiat world?

  2. “Not going to be like 2008”…you’re right, it’s going to be worse. 2008 was the result of cutting fed funds rate to 1-2% after dot com and suppressing them there for 2 years. Compare that to 8 years of suppression at zero percent rates and the malinvestment is definitely going to be worse imo. Maybe folks don’t have 2-3 houses Iike in ‘08 but it’s naive to say malinvestment elsewhere didn’t take place when cheap money is more rampant than ever before. You sound like everyone in 2007 that got slapped in the face with reality and how life works.

  3. I don't think POW is in any danger anytime soon. The energy consumption argument is getting more irrelevant as most mining energy (80%) comes from renewable energy. I expect that to increase over time, even as hash rate on the BTC network increases.

  4. Thanks for all your insight this year DD, really appreciate the work you do – your calm, measured analysis is a fantastic asset in this space and i am grateful to you indeed. The very best Nicholas to you and yours for 2019. I think the year ahead is going to be another exciting rollercoaster ride and glad to have you around to help work out what is going on!

  5. Last year, One Bitcoin rose from $997 to $19,000. That's like 19 Times Returns on the BIGGEST & Number One cryptocurrency in the world. At the moment, 1 Bitcoin = $3813+ One of the biggest names in blockchain fînance is predicting a huge, imminent surge for bitcoin. Philip Nunn – CEO of Blackmore Group –believes we could see bitcoin hit $60,000 in year 2019.That would be an enormous 795% leap from where it sits today. This means almost ALL altcoins Under $1 – $20 per coin can go as high as 20 Times – 50 Times Returns. Do you know what that means? It means your N10,000 – N50,000 today can get you between 100 – 150 coins which could do Times 20 to Times 50 for you. This is the reason I advice you go for small altcoins and NOT the biggie bitcoin if your capital is small or you are just starting out. So if you want to dip your hands into crypto BEFORE this potential price leap, i will be sure to guide and assist you with any information you may need to invest in these new and unpopular crypto and digital currencies that are making waves at the moment. lancelotego223(at)gmail. com NOW IS THE TIME TO GET STARTED WITH CRYPTOS.

  6. Hey Nick,I would be interested to hear what you think about the correlation of BTC price and Cboe and CME BTC futures.
    There's Mark Dow e.g. with who shorted Btc right at the top of the market and just now excited and mentions the futures in relation to price drop also ( https://coincodex.com/article/2779/mark-dow-a-trader-who-shorted-the-bitcoin-top-has-closed-his-position/ )
    And what would it mean for future price of BTC if there is a correlation….
    I've been following your channel since late summer 2017 and am so happy that I found it.
    I find your widely spread knowledge of economics and the correlations you manage to draw very impressive.?
    Have a Happy New Year and a prosperous 2019

  7. People who missed the bottom will say: the market is going lower

    People who bought and don't have fiat left will say: the market is only going up from here.

    Truth is: you got to make the decision to buy or sell by yourself…

    Also: TA is not applicable in crypto markets

    Also: Cardano will be 15 usd by the end of 2020

  8. If Bitcoin has a future, why are most people not using it to pay for things online? Because trillions of dollars are moved daily without Bitcoin and it works just fine. Bitcoin doesn't solve any problems. The banks can create their own blockchain payment systems if that's where they decide they need to go. They won't need to use Bitcoin because Bitcoin is simply that, a blockchain payment system that can be easily recreated as we've seen with the thousands of alt coins that exist. Good luck to everyone and God bless!

  9. Hi Nik, my boy sent me link to watch your video. Very good update. Run for the hills , I dont know what will happen but it feels like a financial "nuclear winter" is coming related to growth for anything anywhere globally. Dunno.

  10. What do you think of Richard Heart's concept about how POW is really just POS but with only one vote?

    Cheers again for another good video mate.
