The Crypto Path to Tens of Trillions

I adapted the title from this extremely illuminating article by Kyle Samuni.

I actually hesitated about sharing these scared texts. The less people in the markets know, the easier it is for me to profit at their ignorance. But good ol’ GMGH got your back (and already has taken up positions in whatever he wanted). Here’s me dropping some free knowledge bombs to blow your mind. To my faithful readers with their own functioning brain, I hope you enjoy this brain digest.

First up is this is an EXCELLENT post by Tony Sheng. Very brief, but very good.

To cut a long story short, this is almost the exact same framework that I have been subconciously using to evaluate ICO projects and even post ICO projects. He verbalized these ideas and put it very nicely in a framework, so I’m quite glad to have read this very short, but concise article about utility tokens.

FYI, 95% of utility tokens are worthless pieces of shit. High chance that most of yours are crap. 95% chance that a token isn’t even required in the project and it’s just forced into the ecosystem so that there is justification to create a token. So that they can sell it to you.

If you want to know why utility tokens are usually crap (hint: I believe that it has to do with velocity), you can take a read on this article also by Kyle. It is a bit more high level, but still readable and understandable.

TL;DR – Most utility tokens don’t provide a compelling reason for token holders to hold the token for more than a few seconds. Absent speculation, assets with high velocity will struggle to maintain long-term price appreciation.”

The only missing piece to these great articles in fulling fleshing out your own framework is: valuations. While easy to conceptually understand (buy stuff cheap and sell it expensive), I myself haven’t come across a really good valuation module to fit into framework (although I have read a lot of different takes on the subject). It’s more art than science at this moment for me.

To my own credit, I have done well from every single ICOs that I have ever taken part in. I’m also doing rather well for my overall crypto portfolio. But take my blog articles and the ones I share for what you will – you are the final judge to what opinions you decide to keep and the executor of the decisions that you make.

For all the crypto skeptics out there, continue believing that crypto is all about “luck”, “hype” and “getting in early at the top of the pyramid”. For the crypto believers, research and study hard and don’t buy nonsense crypto. If making money will give you enough validation, this would be how you go about to do it.

As a side note, Multicoin Capital pumps out great articles from a fundamental perspective, I’d encourage anyone looking for a healthy alternative perspective to give all their articles a read.

Guide: How to Self Leverage with MakerDAO’s Dai

Background Context: I wrote this post and drafted it out a while ago, didn’t have time to proof read it until now. Not sure if anyone is still interested, but here you go anyway. As mentioned in the last post, I went leveraged long on ETH at $377, and this is how I did it trustlessly.

I’d say that I’m not an expert and I opened up my first leverage position today.

The beauty of the Maker system is that you can decide how much to leverage and when.

Anyway, it was a rather confusing and complicated process, but a learning journey all the same. This is highly NOT recommended for anyone that is not familiar with making on-chain transactions and have a low risk tolerance.

Opening up a CDP
1) Have ETH in your Metamask account
2) Go to dai.makerdao.com/
3) Enable all the token allowances on the right (each is 1 transaction)
4) Wrap ETH to WETH
5) Convert WETH to PETH
6) Open a CDP
7) “Lock” PETH into CDP

Boom, now you have deposited collateral into the Maker system, and this allows you to draw out the Dai stablecoin.

Leveraging up
8) “Draw” out Dai
9) Trade Dai for WETH

That’s it. Boom, you’re leveraged.

Protips:
– use the Gas Station to figure out how much gas you should be using. I recommend “Standard” setting
– trade Dai for the best rate by comparing Oasis and Radar Relay
– remember to set Dai trading allowance on Oasis or Token trading permission on Radar Relay
– at 150% collateralization ratio, your leverage determines your max drawdown before you get liquidated
– 10% leverage affords you a 85% drawdown
– 20% leverage affords you a 70% drawdown
– 30% leverage affords you a 55% drawdown
– in my humble opinion, 30% leverage is already risky and above that, you’re just asking for it

Closing your position
10) Trade WETH for enough Dai to close your position
11) Buy some MKR to pay the governance fee
12) “Wipe” will clear off Dai debt position and pay the MKR fees
13) “Shut” will close off the CDP
14) Excess / Deficit of WETH or DAI will be the profit / loss of this entire process.

*Back to 15 Apr*

The process of self-leveraging with Maker is pretty complicated and I can see massive hurdles from them scaling up and increasing supply in the future since the demand for Dai stablecoin creation is the by-product of self-leveraging. However, their partnerships and first mover advantage cannot be overlooked. With both Havven’s Nomins and DigixDAO’s Digix Gold going live, 2018 may very well be the start of the stablecoin revolution!

Anyway, price of ETH is already 30% above my entry price, things are looking good for my position. In my humble opinion, I think the worst is over and the markets have formed a pretty decent bottom.

I’m waiting for ETH to recover back over $800 and then I will begin my obnoxious gloating, please stay tuned for that. Probably by July.

When Lambo?

yo if the market is getting to you and you’re thinking of quitting, you absolutely should, you fucking pussy.

I’ll be really busy the next week or 2, basically a forced hodl for me.

But I’ve some drafts near completion that I can post if I have the time to finish cleaning them up.

Seriously though, a lambo in SG?
I rather take half of its value in cold hard cash.
10% discount if you can pay by crypto.
Extra 5% discount if it’s Monero.

Btw, I opened (yet another) long position at $378.
I’ve also opened my first ever *crypto leveraged long* at $377.
Stop loss under $150.
Come and get it boys.

I really don’t like using leverage, but these kind of opportunities don’t come too often.

What’s the worst that could happen guys? Just lose money lor.
