Buy Some Real Estate With Ethereum

Fundament, a Berlin-based blockchain firm’s receipt of approval from BaFIN to issue blockchain-based bonds that are backed by real-estate. In an announcement on July 23, 2019, Fundament revealed that as a result of the regulator’s approval, it will be running a public offering valued at EUR 250 million ($280 million). 

As a result, crypto fanatics in certain regions who want to invest as little as 50 euros in Germany’s real estate at a variable interest rate can opt to pay with ethereum instead.

Furthermore, the token sale will begin on August 2019 where it will be launched on the Ethereum blockchain. The process will adopt the standard procedure that was notable among Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) of 2017 and beyond. In addition, the tokenized bond can be withdrawn in the form of a foundation token to a wallet that is compatible with Ethereum’s blockchain.

Ethereum was like the second coming of Bitcoin, where you could build Dapps on the blockchain, but the transactions weren’t fast (relative to the 3rd and 4th generation blockchains). However, Ethereum’s mission is to replace internet third parties that store data, track financial instruments via smart contracts and eliminate the server / cloud model.

Despite not making a lot of noise in recent months, Ethereum remains a top 5 blockchain, at least by market cap and will be one of the blockchains that will still be around in 10 yrs. However, in the short term, price is correcting to the support / resistance line at $160.

Should I STAKE or should I TRADE?

Darling you got to let me know
Should I
STAKE or should I TRADE?
If you say that token is mine
I’ll be here ’til the end of time
So you got to let me know
Should I
STAKE or should I TRADE?


This is the question I have every time I open my wallet at STEEM-ENGINE .

Every week a new tribe and correspondent token is launched and despite I have staked the majority of my LEO , PAL and STEM coins , which are the coins on which I feel myself more identified, I do not know what to do with the others…

I have sold some and bought more PAL and LEO with them but, frankly besides an excellent income on those named, I am getting more and more from other tokens which I don’t know what to do with them, every day.

My WALLET has more than 36 Dollars of Non-staked tokens and is increasing day by day, which is fantastic but maybe I am losing ant opportunity with some of them for not having them staked…

Should I stake JAHM, INT or CCC?

Anyone knows if they have future?

I did create an alternative account on which I delegate the majority of the GOOD GAME TOKEN and so, I am not wasting my own SP on steem while upvoting users of that tribe… Should I do the same with INT, JAHM or CCC?

Or should I sell them and stake more STEEM/PAL/LEO?


Anyway, I prefer to have these kind of doubts than not having any…

#newsteem is just amazing!!!

Bears Have Bulls Backed In a Corner!

Bears have bulls pushed against major support at $9,950. This is not just visual support, but also the 0.619 fib level of the larger structure. A decisive break (daily open and close) below this area would be significant.

Bulls are still defending the 8 week EMA at the time of writing this.

Currency Analysis Report 7/23/19 – I Think EUR/CHF Is Going To Parity

Swiss National Bank President Thomas Jordan is facing a new wall of pressure that could force him to push the world’s lowest central bank interest rate even lower.

The franc is already at the strongest in two years, and likely to move higher as the European Central Bank outlines plans for loosening. A dramatic shift toward parity could even prompt surprise action by Jordan before the next scheduled meeting in September. That’s something he’s not been afraid to do before, notably in 2015 with the shock decision to scrap the cap on the franc.

Source

The interests rate that the Swiss is pay in a minus 0.75%.  This means that you actually lose money if you deposit money in their banks.  However, the Franc safe haven status outweighs the negative interest rates given the stability of the Swiss government and its financial system.   Thus, when the global markets turn down, the Swiss franc tends to appreciate.

Which is why I’m still bullish the Swiss Franc, despite potential continued cuts in their interest rates because other central banks around the world are cutting interest rates, so it all relative and the global markets are slowing and eventually will turn.

European central banks have cut rates to history lows

It won’t be easy for the EUR/CHF to get to parity (1.000) as there are many level where buyers are waiting to battle the sellers, but I think the war will be eventually won by the seller.

Nestle is betting on The “Healthy Food” and “Ecology” Trends !

Nestle
to sell a chocolate made without added sugar (CNBC)

  • Nestlé is about to launch a new 70% dark chocolate
    bar, the “Cacao Fruit Chocolate”, which does not include any added
    sugar
    .
  • It
    will be made from the cacao fruit only, with the white cacao pulp acting as a
    natural, more sustainable and healthy sweetener. The new product will be
    launched in Japan this autumn and is expected to be introduced globally by
    2020.
  • Another
    100% cacao fruit juice with lime granita will be commercialised end of this
    week at the KitKat Chocolatory Ginza Store. The two products will be sold at
    $3.7 and $6.93, respectively.
  • The company
    is looking to patent the pulp mixture process
    , which helps to reduce food waste, as it uses 31% of
    the pod vs. the current 22%.

Analysis and Comments

  • You should expect a continued increase in product reformulations and product innovations along the lines of Nestlé’s most recent launch.
  • This is largely driven by a combination of pressure coming from both the public as well as a growing number of governments and regulators, the latter of which are increasingly aware of the strain that obesity & diabetes is putting on global healthcare systems.
  • Already, diabetes care forms 10-15% of healthcare budgets, and Healthcare analysts expect a near doubling of the number of diabetes patients by 2025, which risks bankrupting publically funded healthcare programmes in Europe and making health insurance increasingly unaffordable.

Nestlé develops recyclable paper packaging for Yes snack bars (SupplyChainDive)

  • Nestlé
    has developed a high-speed flow
    packaging technology
    that allows paper to be used on a larger scale instead
    of plastic films and laminates. As a result, Nestlé will sell its Yes snack
    bars in a recyclable paper wrapper.
  • The
    packaging, made of water-based coating and sustainable sources, is available in
    13 countries and will be introduced in Europe and other locations going
    forward.
  • Nestlé
    has been committed to make all its
    product packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025
    , and other manufacturers
    (e.g. PepsiCo, Nestlé, Mars) have launched recyclable packaging programs as
    well.
  • According
    to Reuters, the company may also use paper packaging for its Kit Kat bars and
    other products, once it is able to
    supply sufficient amounts of the specially coated paper.

Analysis and Comments

  • As the article states, consumers’ demand for sustainable and environmental standards in the food industry has been increasing steadily, with a Nielsen survey from 2018 stating that 48% of U.S. consumers were likely to change their purchases to meet environmental standards.

Nestle Share Price

Overhead Caution On Nvidia

The bullish investing thesis on Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA), the current leader in GPUs, is pretty clear. GPUs work better than CPUs for artificial intelligence applications and as a result, the chip maker — and NVDA stock — seem well positioned in a market with what is essentially huge growth potential.

Due to its exposure to AI, NVDA stock will benefit from numerous secular growth trends in autonomous driving, big data, medical diagnostics, and more that could help lift sales and profits rise over time.

To keep its leading market share and meet bullish expectations, Nvidia will need to innovate and make better products than anyone else. Due to the uncertainty of how those products will be received, Nvidia stock has been subject to sentiment shifts. As a result of the shifts, the NVDA stock price has fallen from its late 2018 highs but is still up 23% year to date. Given the rally in 2019, is the stock a good buy now?

There has been a lot of chatter on Wall Street that the semiconductors have bottomed. For example, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSM), is the world’s largest manufacturer of semiconductors, recently beat analyst estimates and signaled a rebound from the current chip down cycle.

If price is going to get to $200, it must get through this band of support / resistance.

Bitcoin – possible next moves

 

Bitcoin continues to tread water – with gradual negative changes to its buoyancy

Here is what I think may be happening now, and what may happen next.

As BTC is clearly no longer rising in price, I have abandoned my bullish channel diagonal Fib levels and have replaced them with downwards sloping diagonal Fib retracement levels.

 

Viewed in the medium-term, the new levels look like this:

 

Seeing the above chart, my immediate thought was that BTC may be forming a bull flag. If it is a bull flag, then the most likely next move would be for BTC to break upwards out of the flag and to continue rising on the previous trajectory. This is not to say that BTC will not dip further before that happens.

 

My confidence factor wrt the bull flag scenario is not extremely high, it’s more a possibility than a probability. I place a likelihood of 40% on it being a bull flag. Because of this I would be cautious in trading it as a traditional bull flag – not that I trade BTC anyway, because I’m a hodler by nature.

Bull flag or not, BTC is dipping at the moment. While the drop in price may be arrested sooner, the new diagonal Fib levels indicate a possible bottom at around $8800. Remember that the Fib levels are sloping downwards, so if BTC dips later than expected, or if it dips again after that, then $8800 will no longer be the bottom of the dip. If BTC were to dip again in August, it would only find support in the $8500 – $8000 region.

 

Another thing I can’t help noticing is the similarity between this price movement, and that of various BTC price movements in 2017. Here is what BTC looks like now:

 

And here are similar BTC patterns from 2017:

 

…and similar patterns from earlier times too.

 

The important take away message from this is that this pattern is invariably seen during bull markets and usually precedes a price climb – before it reoccurs.

Summary:

I can’t tell what BTC will do next, but I am expecting a dip. After the dip there may well be another dip, or even multiple dips before BTC climbs again. It looks as if BTC will resumes its climb after the upcoming dips.

I think we are seeing a consolidation period, a time when weak hands are selling their 2019 gains and stronger hands are replacing the weak ones every time the price dips. Once this transfer process has completed, strong hands should dominate and the climb should resume.

I still think that 2019 bullishness kicked in too soon. The 2018 bear market is still fresh in the memories (and on the charts) of most investors: a reminder to be cautious. This is causing the price rise to be a case of “two steps forward, one step back” which is probably a healthier way to climb than an all out run to new highs. Consolidation makes a climb more sustainable, less volatile and less likely to lead to a big crash at the end of the climb – so it’s a good thing for investors.

Even though I am out of spending money, if BTC dips into the $8000s, I will consider using some of my fiat savings to buy more. This reasons for this are twofold:

  1. BTC has become more legitimate than I expected, sooner than I expected. It features prominently in mainsteam media and is often commented on by world leaders. Whether the press is in favour of it or against it, the exposure is good for BTC and the man in the street is starting to view it as a real contender/threat to fiat money.
  2. My faith in fiat diminishes by the day. Unfortunately, the majority of my saving are still in fiat. I am actively seeking good stores-of-value to place some of my fiat savings into. Crypto is risky, so one must be very careful about shifting money into crypto, but if I am going to be taking money out of fiat, then I might as well put a little more of that money into crypto. The rest will probably go into precious metals, I’m still busy deciding and watching the markets closely.

🗞 Tron Founder Justin Sun Postpones Lunch With Warren Buffet

Justin Sun’s hotly-anticipated lunch with billionaire investor Warren Buffett has been postponed, the Tron Foundation announced Monday.


Sun has fallen ill with kidney stones, the foundation said on Twitter. The parties have “agreed to reschedule at a later date.”
The lunch, scheduled for July 25, was the prize for winning a charity auction. Sun bid $4.6 million earlier this year and seemingly intended to introduce the notoriously crypto-skeptical Buffett to a number of influential figures in the space.

🗞 German Regulators Approve $280 Million Ethereum Token Sale

Fundament, a blockchain startup coming out of stealth mode, has received the green light to issue the first tokenized real-estate backed bond that can be widely offered to individual investors.


Announced Tuesday, the Berlin-based firm has obtained approval from Germany’s financial regulator, BaFIN, for the 250 million euro ($280 million) offering. By virtue of being regulated, the token will be open to any retail investor anywhere with no minimum investment restriction. 


In other words, someone in, say, Indonesia will be able to buy 100 euros worth of ethereum tokens and thereby indirectly invest in German commercial property.


A BaFin representative told Coindesk:
“We can confirm that we granted approval for a Fundament Group prospectus. It has indeed been the first time we have approved a prospectus regarding blockchain-based real estate bonds, but not the first time in respect to blockchain technology as such.”

🗞 Bakkt Is Scheduled to Start Testing Its Bitcoin Futures Contracts Today

Bitcoin futures platform Bakkt is scheduled to begin testing its new contracts Monday.


Nearly a year since revealing its ambitious vision, Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) is still waiting on regulatory approvals to take the platform live. Still, despite having to delay its new market multiple times, the parent of the New York Stock Exchange is moving forward with plans to offer potentially the first physically-settled bitcoin futures in the U.S.


Bakkt announced in May that it would begin testing its bitcoin futures contracts in July, later firming up a July 22 test date.


It will apparently be testing two different types of contracts Monday: a daily and a monthly contract. Bakkt aims to list the futures, which would be traded through ICE Futures U.S. and cleared through ICE Clear U.S., the parent company’s clearinghouse.

🗞 Bitfinex and Tether Double Down on Claim of No Customers in New York

Lawyers for Bitfinex and Tether, in the course of an ongoing case against the New York Attorney General (NYAG), submitted multiple fillings on July 22 alleging that the companies never served customers within New York. 


In one filing, attorney Stuart Hoegner noted the provision in Bitfinex’s terms of service that require that customers that transact be foreign entities:


“Under Bitfinex’s and Tether’s Terms of Service, Eligible Contract Participants (“ECPs”) that transact with Bitfinex or Tether must be foreign entities. Although those foreign entities may have shareholders or personnel who reside in, or otherwise have contact with, the United States or New York, Bitfinex’s and Tether’s customers are the foreign entities themselves … Bitfinex and Tether do not transact with any New York ECPs.”

STEEM Trading Update by my friend @cryptopassion

Here is the current chart :

STEEMUSD.jpg

The STEEM is in waiting mode since days, just sitting little upper than the support line at 0.24$. We are waiting a decision about the next BTC direction and that support line in red won’t hold us for sure if we have a correction on the BTC. So yeah I’m afraid that we are not yet on the low on the STEEM… let’s see, we should see the next move on the BTC in the coming hours.
