Youtube TV and How I Cut The Cord

Youtube TV and How I Cut The Cord

I cut the cord from traditional cable and added YouTube TV 9 months ago. Netflix and Amazon subscriptions have also eased transition to a cable-less world, but YouTube TV has turned into a significant portion of my video consumption since I subscribed. It’s given me a majority of the channels I’d historically watched, unlimited DVR through a forgivingly clunky interface.

Top Crypto Movers 2/8/18: Bitcoin Cash (+31%), Lisk (+21%)

Top Crypto Movers 2/8/18: Bitcoin Cash (+31%), Lisk (+21%)

Do we have a bounce in the crypto space?! Maybe. Depends which technician or fortune teller you ask. Personally I don’t expect us to move strictly higher immediately, but I think the bottom is in and we’ll see buyers generally overwhelming the sellers. That’s partially because we have some regulatory direction after the CFTC hearing on Wednesday. The chairman Chris Giancarlo made some very positive statements about the category much to the exuberance of cryptocurrency twitter. Giancarlo’s account grew from…

Top Crypto Movers 2/3/18: Dentacoin (+40%), Nano (-7%)

Top Crypto Movers 2/3/18: Dentacoin (+40%), Nano (-7%)

Friday’s bounce has continued through Saturday. Did we put in a bottom Friday morning? Maybe. We’ll see if the momentum continues. I bet we chop sideways +/- 10% over the next 3-4 days but who knows. Dentacoin Dentacoin promises dental records on the blockchain. I think it’s pretty useless. This 40% bounce is under context of a 90% correction from its highs. To me this is a dead cat bounce from a useless token. Nano Nano’s price soared 41% yesterday…

Top Crypto Movers: 2/1/18: DigixDAO (+11%), MonaCoin (-30%)

Another rough day for crypto. Only 2 of the top 100 assets were green on the day – Digixdao and ZCash. Big news of the day was a scare of a ban in India that was later rebuked – but the pain continued. DigixDAO Literally gold on the blockchain. Breakout day – catapulting into the top 40 on no news. Maybe it’ll act as a hedge vs wider crypto assets going forward since it’s actually backed by a tangible asset…
