Roku Rocking Again – Part II

Although Roku reported mixed guidance in last month’s third-quarter earnings report, Roku remains one of the fastest growing leaders in video streaming technology.

About 10% of U.S. TV viewers aged 18 to 34 are now on Roku and 10 million of its users do not have a linear TV bundles.

The platform works. There are now 23.8 million users relying on Roku — up 43% over the past year — but that is just one of the three pieces of this stacked engagement cake. The final nugget to consider is that average revenue per user is up 37% to $17.34 over the

Investing in Crypto is too close to gambling, so let’s gamble!

A long, long time ago (8 months – which is like 8 years in crypto terms) I wrote this post on Steemit: https://steemit.com/cryptocurrency/@bitbrain/investing-in-crypto-is-too-close-to-gambling

In it I complained that outsiders see crypto investing as gambling, but then went on to say that:

“Since we’re being accused of it, we might as well be guilty of it!”

I think that it’s time to be guilty of it again…

Let’s Gamble!

Dick’s Sporting Goods, Another Retailer That Going To Bit The Dust – Part II

It’s been over six months since I last talked about Dick’s Sporting Goods.

Dick’s Sporting Goods, Another Retailer That Going To Bit The Dust

The CEO, Stack went on to say during the conference call that the challenges with Under Armour should subside in 2019, as Dick’s finds new inventory — including fresh items from Under Armour — to fill its shelves.

I think Dick’s future doesn’t look great. Stack is talking about filling their shelves with fresh items. Maybe I should show Stack the picture below and introduce

🗞 Tether Says Its USDT Stablecoin May Not Be Backed By Fiat Alone

Tether has updated the terms on its website, saying that its dollar-pegged USDT stablecoin may not be backed 100 percent by fiat reserves.
The new text states that while its stablecoin is 100 percent backed, its reserves may at times include other assets.


The website reads:


“Every tether is always 100% backed by our reserves, which include traditional currency and cash equivalents and, from time to time, may include other assets and receivables from loans made by Tether to third parties, which may include affiliated entities (collectively, “reserves”)”.

The cryptocurrency is not yet available on Coinbase’s retail platforms, including coinbase.com or its Android and iOS apps.

STEEM Trading Update by my friend @cryptopassion

Here is the chart of yesterday :

Here is the current chart :

STEEMUSD.jpg

Yesterday, I was saying you that we must have a bounce from the support line in blue and hopefully it happened. We are now going in direction of the previous Top around 0.56$. This is the next objective to reach in order to start again to do new highs. The STEEM is in a UP trend the last weeks and even if it is normal to have some corrections, it looks like the market is much more positive than back. Enjoy !

Coinbase XRP bribery rumors// Oh, say it aint so!

Can it be? Say it aint so!

Lol. I mean bla bla bla, it could be fake news, but lets be serious for a second. First they list ETC that is a shitcoin and now you get XRP, kind of out of nowhere listed after Ripple had allegedly offered to lend $100 million in XRP to start letting its users trade the token on Coinbase. The firm had reportedly made a similar offer to Gemini – albeit amounting to $1 million.
Seems kind of hard to believe that Coinbase would list xrp for free after being offered $100 million. (If the rumors are true)
Its not unusual to see project leaders paying their way into attention by buying a exchange listing. But what that does is lead to folks not taking crypto seriously when the rich can bribe their way into anything.

Sure, you could say:

exactly like everywhere else.

The thing is that that isnt entirely true. There are laws that regulate those kinds of things in the markets outside crypto, while in crypto its happening literally everywhere. Crypto was supposed to lead us away from the corruption, favoritism, politics, put tech in the forefront, but in reality, white collar criminal activity is one the biggest aspects of crypto right now.

If getting listed was a equal playing ground for everyone when we are talking fees (Nasdaq for example) then i would have no problem. But the centralized exchanges are literally in some cases extorting money, overcharging, lying about volume, pumping certain coins and doing all kinds of other shady stuff.

And none of that has to do with Blockchain technology and everything to do with human nature.

Ill see you around and keep on hanging on! :D—–

Does $BAT have your Attention yet?

Basic Attention Token is one of my top 5 favorite tokens in crypto. I am a huge fan of jumping on the bandwagon and “believing in successful people”. Why would you not bet on Steve Jobs? Why would you not bet on Elon Musk? Why would you not bet on Jack Dorsey? This is the same for in the crypto world.

Why would you not bet on Dan Larimer? And why would you not bet on the guy who invented JavaScript and cofounder Mozilla Firefox? Well that is the CEO of Basic Attention Token and the BRAVE Browser. I love

Crypto Contest March 14: Gulden

Gulden (Bittrex: NLGUSD) has broken out of the triangle pattern in the weekly chart.

(Chart courtesy of Tradingview.com (log scale))

Elliott Wave Analysis

In Elliott Wave terms, Gulden began a wave one advance in June 2014. The red wave one finished in September 2014, and the red wave two correction ended in August 2015. The red wave three (blue sub-waves i-ii-iii-iv-v) advance finished in January 2018, and the red wave four (blue sub-waves a-b-c) correction ended in February this year. If this wave count is correct, Gulden should be heading next towards the January 2018 peak in the red wave five.

Boeing’s Halo Effect

After the Federal Aviation Administration issued a statement late yesterday on its decision to keep the Boeing 737 Max planes flying, today they reversed course after reviewing new evidence collected at the site and satellite data. 

Boeing released a statement stating they are in support of FAA’s decision and are doing everything they can to find out the cause of the accidents and resolve the issue. This announcement was in addition to Trump issuing an executive order grounding all Boeing 737 Max 8s in the US.

President Donald Trump said he is issuing an executive order Wednesday grounding all Boeing 737 Max
