Shervin Pishevar Doesn’t Believe in Unicorns

As An investing firm and Virgin Hyperloop One continue their ascending trajectory, the co-founder, Shervin Pishevar, who has made a living of picking winners in regards to his investments in startup companies, continues his streak of making bold predictions. After a brief respite from the social media platform, Twitter, Shervin Pishevar returned with a vengeance – delivering predictions on a number of economic circumstances that, if correct, will have a profound effect on the future of the United States’ economy.

The predictions came in the form of a “tweetstorm” that consisted of 50 posts, delivered over the course of a 24-hour period, and as soon as they were sent, the business world began taking heed. Of the tweets, a few of the standout posts consisted of a bleak prediction for the stock market, the eventual fall of the five US unicorns, the failing infrastructure of America, and the lack of innovation coming out of Silicon Valley.

According to Shervin Pishevar, the stock market is due to take a 6000 point plunge in the upcoming months, which came as a shock to many, as, in spite of the market’s recent struggles, 2017 proved to be a very prosperous time. The gains accrued in 2017 garnered the market significant favor in the eyes of many prominent businessmen, including the “Cheerleader-in-Chief,” President Donald Trump. As if on cue, the Dow Jones nosedived by 1000 points, 500 of those points dropping in under one hour. When discussing unicorns such as Amazon and Google, Shervin Pishevar expressed disapproval regarding the nature of their operation, due in part to their constant acquisitions, which have stymied upstarts, as well as their growing power, which is such that, they’ve begun influencing nation-states.

In Shervin Pishevar’s estimation, this immense amount of power will eventually bring about their ruin and they will fail, stating that “giants built on monopoly frameworks will fail. As they should.” The failing infrastructure of the United States is also an area of much concern, as, when compared to a number of rising powers around the world, is lacking significantly in regards to condition, as well as innovation.

He started out with the publication The Bauman Letter and since has added two more financial publications, Plan B Club and Alpha Stock Alert.

While Ted Bauman was born in America he moved to South Africa after graduating from high school in Washington D.C. He attended the University of Cape Town and earned a pair of postgraduate degrees with one in history and the other in economics. For the next 25 years he worked for a number of South African nonprofits, mainly as a fund manager. One of these was Habitat for Humanity International where he worked in their housing programs division.

Ted Bauman posts financial articles on medium.com. A few of his articles have been about how he views emerging markets as the big investment opportunity for 2018. In December 2017 he said that people should but the iShares MSCI South Africa EFT (NYSE: EZA). He said that South Africa has been misruled by the government for over a decade. He was expecting that due to this fact they would elect someone that would truly reform the country and that subsequently came to pass. This ETF he had recommended has since had a gain of about 13% while the American S&P 500 is up about 2.5% during the same time period.

Countries like South Africa are where the most money is going to be made in 2018, Ted Bauman says. He offers up a couple of ETFs to take advantage of this. The first is the Vanguard FTSE Emerging Markets ETF trading as VWO. The other one is the iShares Core MSCI Emerging Markets ETF trading as IEMG. He says put your money in either won and profit for the year. Visit: http://thesovereigninvestor.com/precisionprofits/ted-bauman/

Ian King Says Bitcoin is Just the Beginning

In a recent article he wrote for Banyan Hill Publishing, crypto trader and expert Ian King points one reason he’s still bullish on cryptocurrencies is that bitcoin was just beginning. And, although bitcoin is down drastically down in price, the future is long and bright. View more on Ian King at Stock Twits for more updates.

Bitcoin is only the first practical application of the blockchain technology Satoshi Nakamoto pioneered. Bitcoin’s price went up 1,485% in 2017, which is spectacular. That’s a ten-bagger investment, in just one year. However, Etherium went up 12,822% in the same year. Vitalik Buterin created Etherium in 2013 when he was just 19 years old. However, he stood on the shoulders of Satashi Nakamoto and figured out a way to create a blockchain platform which could host business contracts. Ether already underlies 1,000 different projects.

Entrepreneurs are continuing to innovate ways to use blockchain to solve real world problems. However, thanks to the recent mania, there is currently more investor demand for the opportunity to buy into these startups than there are companies to buy into. Also, many of the crypto investors are new to the financial markets. Although the stock market is surging dramatically, the millennial generation sees stocks as stodgy and old-fashioned compared to crypto assets. And its 20% gain is nothing compared to one thousand or twelve thousand percent profits. Read more on talkmarkets.com for more info.

This is adding up to a wave of speculation and price rises unlike anything seen before in history, even the Dutch Tulip mania. It’s creating a new type of startup company, what King terms the “cryptocorn.” On Wall Street, a startup company with a market cap of $1 billion or more is termed a “unicorn” because they are as rare as mythical beasts. Cryptocorns are the crypto asset version of a unicorn. One year ago, only bitcoin had a total market value over $1 billion. Now there are 41 of them.

Even after bitcoin’s price in 2017 went up by 1,495%, its share of the total cryptocurrency market went from 90% to 33%. Etherium, Litecoin, Ripple and Bitcoin Cash are now all rivals to bitcoin’s dominance of the crypto world. They’re known collectively as “altcoins.” They’re a combination of venture capital and small companies going public on a stock exchange through an initial public offering (IPO). But altcoin companies do it through an Initial Coin Offering. In 2014, there were 64 of these altcoins, according to CoinMarketCap.com. Now there are 1,398. Just in 2017, the market capitalization went up 25,000%. For more information, visit:https://iankingguru.com/

 

Ian King Explains the Advantage the Cryptocurrency Market Has Over the Stock Market

Ian King Explains the Advantage the Cryptocurrency Market Has Over the Stock Market
What is a unicorn? Of course, it is a mythical animal. However, in the financial world, a unicorn is a company that is one of a kind in that it reached a value of one billion dollars not long after it started. Of course, nowadays, such companies are no longer so rare. Companies like Uber and Facebook are startups that are unicorns. People are creating startups all over the country. Many young people in Silicon Valley have started startups that soon reached a value of one billion dollars.

There is one problem with these startups, however. When they start, they are usually closed to the average investor out there. They are only open to venture capitalists. Everyone else must wait until the Initial Public Offering, at which point they may have missed out on the bulk of the profits that could have been made if they had the opportunity to invest in the company at the beginning.

That is the beauty of the cryptocurrency market, says Ian King. With cryptocurrencies, anyone can join in when a new company starts up. Initial Coin Offerings are offered before a company starts. This way, people can join the next Bitcoin.

Ian King has coined a new term: Cryptocorn. This refers to cryptocurrencies that have started out not long ago and already have a market cap that is extremely high. That is not so uncommon. Since anyone can join and invest in these companies before they start, the cryptocurrency market is open for everyone to make a lot of money. You do not need to be a venture capital company in order to invest in Initial Coin Offerings. All you need to do is learn about new companies and cryptocurrencies that are starting out.

Ian King says that there are already forty one blockchain companies that have a market cap of one billion dollars. Bitcoin is no longer the one and only player in the cryptocurrency field. Many innovative geniuses are coming up with new and improved blockchain technologies and are creating new cryptocurrencies. There is a lot of profit to be made if you would only look for it.

Ian King has two decades of investing experience. He is a well known financial analyst. He is the cryptocurrency expert at Banyan Hill Publishing.

Daniel Mark Harrison’s Monkey Capital Forges New Paths in Crowdfunding

On July 6th, Monkey Capital, a decentralized hedge fund that invests in firms disrupting their respective industries, made historic waves in the ICO Market. Their ICO (Intial Coin Offering) became the first to successfully sell options before their ICO officially launches on July 15th.

The options, which are named COVEAL, trade on DEX (Waves Decentralized Exchange) and their opening volume trades comparatively to both Bittrex and Chronos. The latter ICOs are considered the gold standard of 2017, which puts Monkey Capital’s new ICO in great company. Owning COVEAL allows one to purchase Monkey, the coin being offered to the public, at a reduced fixed rate.

Monkey Capital is being highly touted by respected news outlets like the Huffington Post as the next billion dollar sensation. The company makes profits by investing in creative destruction. SpaceX contracts, hostile takeovers, and cryptocurrencies are all a part of Monkey Capital’s portfolio, and they are currently raking in the huge returns.

The creative force behind Monkey Capital is Daniel Mark Harrison. Harrison started Monkey Capital in March of 2016, and has grown the business into a potential billion dollar success story. However, this wasn’t his first big success. Harrison is also a contributor on coinspeaker.com, an online editorial dedicated to all things Bitcoin and Blockchain. He increased readership by over 450,000 readers per month and broke huge news stories (including one that eventually led to the suspension of a Chinese exchange from CD’s index and prompting rule changes). He also is Chairman and CEO of DMH&Co, a private firm wholly owned by Harrison, dedicated to growing his family’s personal wealth and assets.

Monkey Capital is soaring high right now, and their new coin has been labeled a gamechanger by Goldseek Radio. The burning question is: what is next for this groundbreaking hedge fund?
