The Moment Of Truth For Chipotle – Part II

It’s been over seven months since I last talked about Chipotle.

The Moment Of Truth For Chipotle

After years of news flashes of Chipotle food making people sick, Chipotle hired a new CEO, Brian Niccol earlier this year. At Taco Bell, Niccol was known for food menu innovation as well as driving technological advancements to the customer ordering process.

However, Niccol has something up his sleeves. Digital sales grew by 33% and delivery sales were up 300% in the second quarter. Another way to put this in perspective is online orders were $17 each vs. in store orders of $12. Niccol is hoping

Bitcoin Technical Analysis: Price Exits Wedge…NOW WHAT?

Bitcoin rose out of the wedge it had been consolidating in over the past month. It’s now hitting resistance at $3,900.

Just prior to the decisive break out, market makers ran a stop hunt that pushed price up to $3,905 and back down to $3,775 before returning to baseline. This happened in under 30 mins.

As price has been on a slow uptick, shorts have been stacking.

Looking at the daily chart, we can see the Bollinger bands are starting to bottleneck.

In today’s analysis I discuss, key areas to watch, traps to avoid and so much more. I hope you find it helpful.

New Web Page for Liberland – and a New Future

Pavel Karpisek 16.3.2019

Perhaps you noticed that we have a new web page. Yes, we do! But the new look isn’t all there is to it. You’ll be amazed at what we have in store for you.


The need for a comprehensive new site was a long time coming and we finally received sufficient resources to rebuild it. Our old systems didn’t scale with the huge interest in Liberland and our plans for integrated e-governance. We decided to make it more efficient and more effective.


We are now launching Liberland’s E-Residency program. This is a lighter version of Liberland citizenship and it will allow you to create a company, register a vehicle and much more. It’ll also have access to Liberland’s Decentralized Governance system where you can provide input on all the main topics regarding the future of our country. This is coming very soon.


At the moment, we process all citizenship requests manually. The first requirement is to earn 5,000 Liberland Merits (LLM), either through donations or service to Liberland. All applicants who desire to be eligible for citizenship need to fill out the E-Residency form first. You will then be contacted after filling out the forms correctly.


We’re building our own OAuth, an open standard for token-based authentication. This is an access delegation commonly used today by Google, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and other systems. It will allow you to log in securely to the Liberland registries via mail and password.

API – Call for Developers

Are you a developer? Did you wish to help to build Liberland? We will open our API shortly and developers will have the possibility to incorporate it into their systems.

Release Schedule

March 31, 2019 – Citizenship Registration

  • We will add an identity verification process and know-your-customer (KYC) process in order to maintain the high reputation of Liberland citizens. You’ll be introduced to your Liberland representative (if there is one for your country) so you can ask relevant questions and offer to help out and volunteer. After that, you have to upload a passport photo and signature.

April 1, 2019 – Alpha Decentralized Governance System

  • Starting the new age of e-governance.

April 14, 2019 – E-Residency Cards

  • Our E-Residency card is an advanced identity card which will work as a second means of authentication and allow you access to all Liberland services. We have big plans with the physical cards, so stay tuned and be ready! Pre-order now!
  • A limited amount of premium cards are coming. More in our next article.

April 30, 2019 – Embassy Profiles

  • The Embassy profile system is our next milestone: Introducing you to your representatives and getting involved in the Liberland network
  • We will add a user section where you would be able to access with one click all the registries, request e-residency or citizenship, watch our progress, receive news and communicate with Liberland or your representative

May 31, 2019 –  New Liberland Company and Vehicle Registries

  • All the registrations will work in a few simple clicks from the user section. It will be the easiest registration on the planet!
  • Company registry – this will serve not only as a registry but also tokenization of companies and serve as an addition to the Liberland Security Exchange
  • Boat registry
  • Car registry

Snap Keeps Snapping Higher

Ever since Snap announced their fourth quarter earnings no Feb. 5, the stock has been on a tear.  During the earnings call, Snap posted a narrower-than –expected loss, communicated that the number of daily active users have stabilized and their Collection Ads, which enable a business to showcase four products in a single Snap, drove over twice the return on ad spend versus Q4 2018.

Snap shares are now up more than 100% year to date and on Thurs received a vote of confidence when a once bearish analyst, BTIG’s Richard Greenfield, upgraded the stock from Buy from Neutral and set

The Reasons Why I Don’t Pay Off My Mortgage Balances

For a long time my mindset was always that the sooner you can pay off a mortgage balance on a property the better.  A few years ago that view began to shift and now I’m fully on board with not paying it down ahead of schedule.
There are a couple good reasons why it is better not too.
The Reasons Why I Don’t Pay Off My Mortgage Balances

Risk Mitigation

When you have a loan balance on your property you in turn show less equity.  Less equity means there is less you have available to take.  Lawyers do not like going after people that

Unusual Options Activity In Devon Energy Corporation

Devon Energy Corporation, an independent energy company, primarily engages in the exploration, development, and production of oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids in the United States and Canada.  One of the smartest things Devon Energy did years ago when natural gas prices were depressed and stayed depressed was get rid of his natural gas land reserves and invest in more oil land reserves.

But then they did something even smarter, they invested in the right oil land reserves which consist of: the Delaware Basin, the Powder River Basin and the Eagle Ford Shale. 

Thus, as long as oil prices stay above

As mentioned, Litecoin LTC with the relative strength leading!

I thought it was happen again as it has happened in the past. Litecoin is leading the crypto sphere off the lows flagging towards highs. In fact all of the crypto’s are flagging I like to watch except Litecoin is already near the prior highs. This is HUGE for the crypto space right now. With the mainstream media completely ignoring (finally) the asset class and enough time has passed we can have a crushing run here. This is not the time to be powering down, this is the time to buy the piss out of these crypto’s

Welcome to the Daily Crypto News: A complete Press Review, Coin Calendar and Trading Analysis. Enjoy!

🗞 A Blockchain to Connect All Blockchains, Cosmos Is Officially Live

Cosmos, a highly anticipated blockchain itself designed to improve the interoperability between any number of other blockchains, has officially released a live software.

With the mining of its first block at 23:00 UTC, the project has launched Cosmos Hub, the first in a series of proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchains that will be created in the Cosmos ecosystem.

At present, users of the network will not be able to swap tokens between blockchains or otherwise connect to Cosmos Hub with existing blockchain networks until validators officially vote to activate what is called the Inter-Blockchain Communication (IBC) protocol.

🗞 Strong Bitcoin Volumes Bode Well for Price Breakout

Bitcoin’s daily trading volume remains elevated at highs above $10 billion, going against the technical theory that investor interest tends to drop during periods of consolidation. Therefore, the ongoing sideways trading near $3,900 may end with a bull breakout toward the recent high of $4,20

Trading volumes have been strong since the corrective rally kicked off in early February, so a range breakdown looks unlikely.

Prices could first see a drop below $3,865 (March 12 low) due to the extended consolidation. That said, the short-term outlook would turn bearish only if the higher low of $3,743 created on March 3 is breached

🗞 Decentralized or Nothing: Song Slams IBM Over Blockchain Hype at SXSW

More or less decentralized? For Jimmy Song, there’s no in between.

An author and partner at venture firm Blockchain Capital, Song made that point repeatedly in a debate with IBM engineer and Hyperledger Fabric co-lead Chris Ferris at SXSW Thursday, where he told the crowd at the Hilton Austin in no uncertain terms: “You either have control over your stuff or you don’t. It’s a zero or a one.”

The debate pitted permissioned blockchains – the private networks being pitched to big business – against permissionless blockchains – the technology undergirding bitcoin and other open-source networks. Billed as a “deathmatch” on the festival agenda, Song was determined to give the audience what they came for.

🗞 CBOE Will Not List Bitcoin Futures in March, Cites Need to Assess Crypto Derivatives

The Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) will not add a new Bitcoin (BTC) futures market in March, the firm said in a statement on March 14.

Per the statement, CBOE is re-evaluating how it approaches trading digital assets. CBOE said:

“CFE is not adding a Cboe Bitcoin (USD) (“XBT”) futures contract for trading in March 2019. CFE is assessing its approach with respect to how it plans to continue to offer digital asset derivatives for trading. While it considers its next steps, CFE does not currently intend to list additional XBT futures contracts for trading.”

🗞 French Court Clerks to Use IBM Blockchain Platform for Corporate Registry

French commercial court clerks will use a blockchain-based platform to record changes in companies’ legal status within the country. The development was revealed in an official announcement on March 14.

The blockchain network was jointly developed by IBM and the National Council of Clerks (NCC) and will reportedly be deployed starting in 2019 by the clerks operating in commercial courts across France. The blockchain platform is built on the Hyperledger Fabric framework and aims to increase transparency and efficiency in legal transactions associated with the lifecycle of companies in the registry.

STEEM Trading Update by my friend @cryptopassion

Here is the chart of yesterday :


Here is the current chart :


As you can see, we broke the support line around 0.49$. However, look the last candles, these candles could be an indicator of reversal and if it is the case, we will go back quickly upper than the support line again. It is a possible scenario as we had many bearish traps these last week. The second scenario is a touch (pull back) on the support line before the continuation of the drop. Let’s see 😉
