The Universal Laws of Crypto

  1. Those who understand cryptocurrencies have been financially rewarded.
  2. Those who invest in cryptocurrencies without understanding have been financially punished.

The Three Rules for Altcoin Analysis

  • Bitcoin: “a decentralized digital currency, without a central bank or single administrator, that can be sent from user to user on a peer-to-peer network without the need for intermediaries.”
  • Ethereum: “a decentralized, open-source blockchain with smart contract functionality.”
  • Polkadot: “a blockchain network that connects, builds, and hosts blockchains.”
  • Bitconnect: Crypto’s most famous scam intended to build trust and reputation in bitcoin and cryptocurrency ecosystem with Open-source platform.” (What does that even mean?)
  • Safemoon: When you start diving into Safemoon’s documentation, you find a lot more related to their tokenomics (burning and redistributing sold Safemoon) than the value it hopes to add to the world.
  1. Establish a thesis for why the crypto will rise in value
  2. Determine when that thesis has been invalidated
