In 2018 we all know that the popular narrative was Blockchain not Bitcoin. In 2019 that narrative came to a grinding halt!

After interviewing some of the best companies in the space I am continuously impressed by the drive, motivation and vision for a decentralized smart contract and DAPP platform. In the back of my mind I continue to have the following debate:

1) Bitcoin and a digital currency is the best use case of this technology. Eventually projects will want to utilize the best, longest running and most decentralized and secure public blockchain for their projects.

2) The law of averages suggests that Bitcoin is not the only project due to succeed and it is over 10 years old using POW which is likely to limit it. It’s a smarter idea to be philosophically unattached to Bitcoin and simply follow, support and invest in the industry as a whole. …

The following are a few things I believe will happen over the next 18 months in the Bitcoin and cryptocurrency space.

  1. Bitcoin goes political — Over the next year in the United States we are going to see both Democrats and Republicans debate on National television. We will likely see the topic of Bitcoin and alternative digital assets be discussed. This will cause a massive impact in the market depending on wether the remarks are positive or negative. …

A call to action for all “Crypto Kids”

Bill Guida — Head of Research, Bull Flag Group

As we begin to move forward into what appears to be the next “Bull Market” I would like to take this time to discuss an uncomfortable truth for many of the so called “Crypto Kids”. We need to discuss financial responsibility…but first I think its appropriate to address what a “Crypto Kid” is.

In it’s most pure form a Crypto Kid (otherwise know as a Blockchain bro) is simply a person between the ages of 17–35 who happened to be in the right place, at the right time, back in 2017 and quickly made a lot of money. I’m not down playing the amount of time or effort it took for many of these people to master the crypto craft by any means. …

ALGORAND is coming !

“Founded by cryptography pioneer and Turing award winner, Silvio Micali, Algorand solves the “blockchain trilemma” with a platform that delivers decentralization, scalability and security. Algorand provides a foundation for existing businesses and new projects to operate globally in the emerging decentralized economy. Algorand’s first-of-its-kind, permissionless, pure proof-of-stake protocol supports the scale, open participation, and transaction finality required to build systems for billions of users.”

Bill from Bull Flag Group interviews Evan Richards of famed Algorand!

Algorand achieved a high level of attention at the beginning of 2018, as they were steadily raising funds for a large ICO. …

One of the biggest problems in the crypto and blockchain space is finding a use case for tokens or coins. One of the most frustrating things to see as an investor are projects which are promoting a “ Blockchain solution to your problems”. In most cases these problems are fabricated and blockchain isn’t remotely necessary to solve these problems.

One company that has stuck out over the past year is called Phunware.

They managed to check off a few requirements which is fairly difficult, especially in the crypto space.

They have been in business for about 10 years, and have an impressive portfolio of large and dominant companies with whom they work with. WWE, Nascar, NFL, and many more utilize the underlying technology which is based on Phunware tech! …

Something that is presently lacking in the Cryptocurrency space today is a widely accessible all in one trading, research and analysis platform for everyday investors! Luckily for you, the team at has developed a solution to this problem.

“We started Cryptocurrencies.Ai because as traders and investors ourselves, we were struggling with the lack of tools for the cryptocurrency market which fit our needs. We want to contribute to the growth of this industry by doing what we know best given our rich background in financial data & tech at Bloomberg. …

Synonymous with both quality and security, Ledger has quickly become one of the most influential cryptocurrency companies over the past 3 years.

With the ability for everyday Crypto users to pull their holdings off of exchanges and control their own private keys, Ledger is creating a secure environment for the skeptics.

Ledger Nano X

What is Ledger and what do they do? Ledger is the cryptocurrency company behind the most popular and trustworthy hardware wallet to date. They are very proud to say they have sold over 1 Million units and are constantly scaling their operations while maintaining high levels of quality! What is a hardware wallet? Put simply a hardware wallet allows for a user to store, and hold cryptocurrencies in a more secure way. …

I remember the 2016 Bitcoin Halving…. May 2020 is going to shock us all.

There are a lot of differences between Bitcoin in 2016 and Bitcoin in 2019 and I believe these changes are going to dramatically impact the next halving event. It is no surprise now that the May 2020 Bitcoin Halving is going to cause FOMO for investors. I also believe that the market has become so sophisticated that this Halving is already accounted for in the current PRICE of Bitcoin.

As we are all well aware of, the media has a massive role in dictating the direction of the market, and I believe we are going to see another dip below $3500 before another period of stagnation leading into the Halving in May 2020.

BX3s Crypto Janitor Program — Cleaning up non-compliant ICOS in 2019

Had a great time talking with Kyle Asman, a partner at BX3 Capital. During this interview, Bill and Kyle touch on some of the regulatory concerns which are plaguing the market today. Both Kyle and Bill are in agreement that the vast majority of tokens which launched in 2017 and 2018 are actually securities! Great, this is the established opinion of many in the space, but what can these startups do now? Kyle and BX3 have put together a service for projects which are in violation and WANT to make things right!

The project is called Crypto Janitors, and the purpose is to help companies who would like to right the wrongs of the past and become compliant. As we move into 2019 the SEC and other agencies will resume regulatory action, therefore it is imperative that companies take initiative and begin the process to become compliant. …
