#87 - The Crypto rally that didn’t happen

This week was the crypto rally that didn't happen thanks to Tom Lee's prediction based on historic trends after the Consensus conferences. There were big price predictions based on crypto conference attendance trends,  but it was a damp squib in the end. Should investors focus on these stats for price predictions? Or are they better off following the product development of an ICO to gauge opportunities?

As a bonus, we have an interview with Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands discussing crypto.

#84 - Interview with Ben Jessel from Kadena

Blockchain technology is still in its early days and has a long way to develop in order to be adopted on a wide scale by industry.  Today we present an interview with Ben Jessel from Kadena who are trying to help with that.  Kadena has built PACT, which is a programming language for smart contracts that is more easily human-readable than other languages out there, as well as a "Chainweb" which is an approach to increasing the throughput of blockchains while maintaining a proof-of-work consensus algorithm.

#83 – What Tesla stock price tells us about Crypto valuations?

Neal and Nathan draw parallels between Tesla and crypto valuations, and how the mindset of investors is changing from traditional methods. The valuation of Tesla reflects the disruption potential in a given industry, and is not being valued the same way GM would be. For ICOs, they are being valued similarly to how Uber, AirBnB were valued when they were raising funds from VCs, and naturally their valuations can seem out of touch with reality since they too are valued on industry disruption potential. Given that ICOs are more accessible to modern day crypto investors this naturally pushes their prices even higher since everyone wants in on the next big thing in Tech.

#81 – Market momentum continues, but how do investors choose from so many crypto options?

Neal and Nathan announce some exciting news where Analysis In Chains are now a part of CryptoNews.com

Will we start to see more indexes for crypto? With so many projects out there, how can anyone stay on top of related crypto? And, will we start to see some form of curation of funds like we see in stocks on Wall Street?

While crypto buzz gains momentum, it is getting harder for ICOs to raise money since there is so much competition to raise money. VC Money continues to pile into Crypto and blockchain and is badly needed by anyone starting an ICO.

Also, Nathan deep dives into Hashgraph who presented in Berlin and he gives his take.
