Chapter one Top ten investment topics in the encryption market
1、 The collapse of institutional trust
Today, 70% Of Americans no longer agree with Congress , Cryptocurrency is the vote against centralized institutions .
2、 Encrypted world /Web3 The arrival of is inevitable

Chris Dixon Call it “ Using tokens as a medium , The Internet, which is jointly owned by the builder and the user ”.

Eshita take Web1 To Web2 To Web3 The evolution of is described as from “ Read only to write read , Then to write 、 read 、 Have ”.

Whatever model you like , In the long run , The user is in web3 The profit from the is higher than web2( Monopolized Internet economy ) Of .

DeFi Provides... For savers 5% Annual income of , Wall Street has only 0.5%.

NFT( Heterogeneous token ) The emergence of provides creators with greater opportunities to make money , Not like Hollywood 50% Share of .

and GameFi and SocialFi The emergence of broke the monopoly situation , Internet leading enterprises will lose 100% Market share , At the same time, the institutional risk is also reduced .

Cryptocurrency market to 2030 There will be an order of magnitude growth in . therefore , I divide the follow-up trend into three situations :
1、 The most likely is , In the market 2022 It will experience explosive growth before the end of the first quarter of the year , Then into a shallow but long and painful bear market ;
2、 The whole industry soared , Directly create 20 Trillion dollar bubble , And last for a whole year (2022), Comparable to the current prosperous Internet industry — — Although it sounds more like a joke , But considering the loose monetary policy around the world 、 The government deficit has been expanding and the development momentum of cryptocurrency market is surging , It's not impossible .
3、 The market rose slowly and steadily , Until forever .(“ Supercycle ” theory ).
3、 Bridge 、NFTs as well as DAOs
These three are Web3 Particularly underdeveloped areas , It is also the growth point in the later stage .
4、 Decoupling of the encryption market
This section comes from Ari Paul An article from , The main idea is 4 Years ago ,Defi and NFTs It basically doesn't exist ,” Decentralized file storage ”、” Smart contract platform ”、” privacy ” The relationship between cryptocurrency and others is fragmented . Now? ,defi yield farmmer perhaps NFT Speculators can become a full-time career , You even need a small team to follow up every track , To keep up with the pace of the market .”
5、 permanent ( risk ) capital : admission , Elimination and growth , Never leave
In the context of negative interest rates , The allocators of large capital are continuously improving the efficiency of asset allocation , Most people can no longer ignore the encryption market .
6、 Where is the upper limit of the encryption market ?

We all know “ crash ” Coming soon , This cycle may be smoother than before , But as we said before, the market still exists “ Waste heat ”, So before the crash , How much room is left for the market to rise ?“ Touch the top ” What is your signal ? yes Shiba Inu market caps The market value of 300 Billion dollars ? Or times square NFT Where's your billboard ?

Now let's talk about what I think “ Touch the top ” The signal of , Start with bitcoin .
1、 The currency : The best judgment may be made by Coin Metrics Popularized “market value to realized value”. This is a ratio , The market value of bitcoin in free circulation ( The amount of money in circulation in the past five years ) With its “ Cash value ”( The sum of the last circulation price of each bitcoin on the chain in the current time ) Compared to get . whenever MVRV achieve 3 when , It's the best time for you to benefit ( When MVRV Fell to 1 Following time , You can sell a kidney to buy )

If history repeats , What it will mean ? This year's MVRV Reach... Again 3 when , The price of bitcoin will reach 100,000–125,000 US dollar level !

2、 The etheric fang :ETH Can surpass in this cycle BTC Do you ? The answer is unlikely .

3、Solana Other public chains : Market competition has two points , Business development ( Application creation and deployment ) And ecological drainage ( Whether developers can be attracted to build projects on non Ethereum blockchain ).

4、DeFi:DeFi Our long-term expectations are excellent , So you can short banks ( Proceed with caution ).

5、NFTs: The development prospect of this field is quite good , The expected scale is terrible . But to a greater extent, it just shows NFT The caster still has a great chance , And there is still a lot of room for market infrastructure construction , Can't explain most specific NFT Investability of the project .

7、 The bear market is long

After the market collapse, we must first return to our original heart , Do you still believe in everything in the encrypted world , You need to meditate on the following questions .

1、 Whether the centralized world is really going to decline ?
2、 some time ,Web3 Is it worthy of our expectation to fight against the traditional world “ chip ”?
3、 The components of the new field we envision ( Bridge 、DAO、NFTs) Whether it is still worth a lot of investment in the next stage ?
4、 In the next downlink cycle , Is it easier to find projects with strong fundamentals ?
5、 Is there still enough money available to fund interesting projects ?
6、 Do you still believe that the encryption market is 5–10 The market will return to the bull market during the year ?

If you still believe in all this , Please put on your helmet , Embrace the cold winter , And pay attention to these “ Winter survival skills ”: Leverage as soon as possible , Look at the timing of tax payment , Timely cash , Don't try to speculate “ Touch the top ” Time .

About leverage : If you are not a professional trader , Your leverage is just a transfer of funds in the eyes of professionals .

About taxes : stay 12 month , Remember to sell and cash , Because you still have to bear taxes . If you are in the 2021 year 1 month 1 Start holding 10,000 dollar , By trade , stay 12 month 31 Daily holding 10 Thousands of dollars , And then in 2022 year 1 month 1 Daily loss to 25000 element . Then you owe the government more money than you hold (@chirsisme remarks : This may also be the reason why most people choose to drop their bags at the end of the year , Because taxes don't cross a year ,12 You need to pay taxes in a month ).

About bears : Please don't short .
Another thing is to remind speculators , They will feel that this is a great time to buy low-priced currencies in a bear market . But the market can collapse more than you think , The price of the currency will fall lower than you think , The bear market will be longer than you think .

8、 Public choice :Coinbase Open the door to the traditional market
Cryptocurrency IPO and ETF The birth of cryptocurrency is more important to attract institutions and strengthen the mainstream recognition of cryptocurrency , Rather than helping retail investors get returns .
9、 Imitation disk and wind direction
The encryption market is often social and memetic .(@chirsisme remarks : Recognize this attribute of the encryption market , Just ask us before the next bull market , Be sure to find one or more emerging SHIB)
10、 information disclosure ( Non investment opinion )
Here's a list of messari The position of the analyst team and the outlook of the market sector next year , More people , Miscellaneous items , There's no need to talk one by one . I'll refine it as follows :

Look forward to :DeFi1.0 Project “ The Renaissance ”; Decentralized Cloud Computing (RNDR、AKT etc. ), All Multi Chain ecology and two-tier applications , Ethereum expansion solution ( especially ZK-Rollups),


Data availability layer (Ceramic、 Celestia), Liquidity pledge agreement (Lido、Rocket Pool、Acala、Umee)

Bearish :ATOM,monolith, All Ethereum killers are overvalued , So bearish .
forecast :RON>SLP But it's hard to say ( once Ronin Of LM Reward exhaustion ,SLP It's hard to last ).

SEC The chairman is a big liar , have no idea of Crypto Products
GBTC The annual management fee is 2%,DCG Fully owned ,GBTC Not really ETF, It's a closed plate .GBTC The premium can be as high as... In the first quarter 20%, The latter are all negative premiums over -10%
Barry Silbert (DCG Boss ) and Gary Gensler(SEC chairman ), The two colluded to pit the investor's money , Come up with GBTC Such products .
2、 To loan
Crypto Our lending needs regulation
4、 CeFi and TradFi
Traditional finance will eventually enter Crypto, But there may be no chance at that time , Regulatory considerations put them under a lot of constraints ;
Crypto The original company of centralized finance in China is the biggest winner
Compared with what traditional financial companies provide Crypto service , Investors won't wait .Genesis,Binance,FTX,Coinbase These companies have a higher priority than Goldman Sachs ,CME,Fidelity
5、 Central exchange

Binance Maximum , But being chased by global regulators .CZ Slowly and finally ready to find a place to stabilize in terms of compliance , Probably Binance Will accept a government investment , Maybe Singapore
FTX The fastest growing . Derivatives are doing very well , Products made by traders for traders , bought Blockfolio, Donate money to the president of the United States , Do product publicity in sports , To make the Solana wait .

11、 The impact of US dollar crypto stable currency on national security
This part mainly talks about the importance of stabilizing the dollar , In particular, it exports US dollar stable currency all over the world , Help the United States continue to maintain its dominant position . So the United States / The Fed should make good use of private dollars , It's the dollar stabilization currency
Isn't this a perfect tool for the authorities to track and monitor everyone's financial records ?
But if DCEP It has a two-tier structure , A layer of transparent pool structure , The pool structure is opaque , Anonymity . Then the second floor has a good chance .
13、Fedcoins & In the west CBDC
Hesperian CBDC You will lose . The main reason is that the speed is slow , There is not such a good multi sectoral collaboration to promote , There is no force to promote and large-scale pilot projects
