Each of the featured guests share insightful industry knowledge on how they got started, coins they think are undervalued, and many other tips and tricks for other investors.
What are the three coins you believe have the most potential?
What are your criteria when looking to make an investment?
Infrastructure. We are still in the phase where blockchain platforms haven’t scaled. Its an arms race. I’m spread across all blockchain platforms hedging that several might win.
Does the product actually exist on github
Team, token metrics, advisors, idea, hard cap.
Market Cap, Supply, Team, Whitepaper (problem being solved? potential issues with that type of product addressed?), Prototype (working product?), Token Use-Case, Target Market Size, Partnerships, Roadmap/Events, Social Followings/”Hype,” Competitors, Price History
What do think are the most overvalued coins?
Ripple and Iota
Tron – plagiarized garbage
Ripple – controlled supply with 90% of the market owned by banks or Ripple Labs
Cardano – neat idea, but still only a testnet
ARK, CVC, BTC. Too over valued.
Probably 95% of them. If you look at the fundamentals, you can quickly start to see which projects fall short.
What are the coins that you believe are the most under the radar?
Zilliqa. They are a Singapore Blockchain project with Sharding.
Icon $ICX – Korean Blockchain project that is moving onto mainnet end of April.
Airswap – Can beat the issue with DEX with greater usability and is launching a new peer to peer trading platform end of month.
MakerDAO and Dai – stable cryptocurrency without institutional risk. Has the potential to replace centralized banks with CDPs, too complicated for most to understand.
NEO – Chinese Ethereum. The People’s Republic will always want their own version of the truth.
Hashgraph Hedera – A public DAG with possible throughput of 250K tx/s. Enough said.
AION, BLZ, BNB. They are undervalued.
Which projects do you feel have the most real world value?
$BAT has the greatest utility.
0x, MakerDAO and Golem (Ethereum projects)
If you had to hold one coin for the next five years, what would it be?
What is the biggest advice you would give new traders or investors?
Always do your research. Ask multiple opinions. Don’t even trust a single source – ever. Be it influencers, your best friend etc. Collect data points then make your own decision.
Don’t buy ICO’s. It’s tough enough for crypto veterans to try to value.
Don’t FOMO, do your due diligence.
How did you first get involved with the cryptocurrency industry?
Going straight into providing services such as community building, brand and marketing to blockchain related companies.
Started mining Bitcoin in 2012. Been doing crypto ever since.
I got involved in 2012, and dabbled in it until the DAO got hacked
