We Need to Talk About Crypto Marketing

In the wake of scam projects and overzealous ICOs, the disdain Hicks showed for marketing reverberates around the crypto space, but marketing itself is not intrinsically evil; moreover, marketing is a tool which has been exploited by bad actors, poisoning the well for everyone else.

When McDonald’s advertise their latest burger, does this make marketing bad because society deems McDonald’s as junk food? And when The Red Cross advertises for donations to help refugees in Syria, does this make marketing good?

The truth is that even Hicks relied on marketing to sell his shows. His hatred for marketing was really for those admen telling you that drinking a Coke will make you happy or driving a BMW makes you attractive. I know how it works, I have sat in those meetings where morally bereft vultures brainstorm ideas to sell you more shit you don’t need, but this is not a reason to reject marketing as the principles of morality are at the door of what is being marketed and how, not the act itself.

Why the Futures Market Will Destroy B2X Before it Launches

With the Segwit2x hard fork approaching, I have been working on an article explaining the background to this fork, why I don't support it and how I am going to trade it. The article is currently in draft and being reviewed by one of the resident miners in my Facebook group to check for accuracy as most of the topics covered are quite technical.

While I have been preparing the article, it is becoming evident that the futures market is going to kill off B2X before it launches so I wanted to get a post out about this as quickly as possible as this is going to affect trading.

Don't Buy the Dip, Buy the Correction

If you want to trade on stock, forex or CFD platforms, there are checks in place to ensure you know what you are doing and you understand that risks when trading. With gambling websites, they have controls to ensure when you are losing money fast that you can't bet anymore. Crypto doesn't have this; new investors can enter the market, sold on the dream of getting rich and invest into things they don't understand.
