Guys, there are endless ways to make money. Why limit yourself? Diversify.

  1. Traditional markets lead the way.

– The stock market and BTC are highly correlated, just overlay the charts and see for yourself. Why is this? Think about it logically. Lets say you need cash because you just got laid off, the economy is in rough shape. Your going to sell any assets you have for liquid cash. These assets could be a boat, a car, stocks, or crypto. It doesn’t matter, you need cash.

  1. Real world consequences courtesy of crypto markets:

– Here’s a great example. NVDA (nvidia) had a very disappointing earnings, and they plummeted 17%. Why? With the price drop in crypto the demand for mining equipment fell, greatly impacting NVDA’s sales and outlook. This is something EVERYONE on this sub should have been able to predict. That 17% could have netted you anywhere from 10-1000%. How? Options trading. Whats options trading? Welcome to traditional markets.

  1. Market news is real news.

– Johnson and Johnson had asbestos in their baby powder for decades. Wasn’t on normal news, thats on financial news. Most of us probably used this shit as a kid, so it effects all of us but chances are its news to you. Finance is great because you can’t bullshit numbers and companies MUST report factual information, they can’t fudge it like politicians/newscasters can. Its the realest news there is.

  1. What about Gold/BTC as a safe haven in rough financial times? NO.

– If you believe this to be true, you are an idiot. Why? You didn’t take 15 seconds of your time to look at a chart of gold during the financial crisis. During a financial crisis your safe haven is cash, not some miracle asset that is inverse of every market in the world. Your USD is backed by the might of the strongest military and economy to ever exist, its not going anywhere.

Bitcoin for all intents and purposes is an unregulated, heavily manipulated, penny stock. Why focus all your energy on ONE penny stock? REGARDLESS of how good you think it is there is no reason not to educate yourself on the broader markets.

Crypto taught me a lot, but what I’m most thankful for is it led me to the stock market, which led me to learn a shit load about the world and how it operates. Why don’t you do the same? Diversify.

Understanding IOTA’s underlying tech with a visualizer

December 15, 2018 /u/nstratz 0

Many of you will know IOTA is based on a directed acyclic graph (DAG) instead of a blockchain.

But to really understand this approach, and the difference with blockchain it can be very clarifying to visit a tangle visualizer such as:

http://tangle.glumb.de

Example of a 15 min visualization: https://imgur.com/a/rPguXgo

It’s really fun to watch.

If you’re a bit into math you can understand how this model can scale more easily than a blockchain. A blockchain needs bigger blocks or faster processing. The DAG will become wider and will go forward faster (until you reach the bandwidth limits of nodes, after that clustering comes in play).
