DEFI AND ETHEREUM

April 5, 2021

 

A major positive for the crypto market has been the explosion of Decentralized Finance, known as DeFi, which is largely built on top of the Ethereum blockchain. This adds to a growing narrative for ETH as a store of value.

MORGAN STANLEY BTC

March 17, 2021

Morgan Stanley becomes the first big U.S. bank to offer access to Bitcoin funds. Given that some part of Morgan Stanley’s $4 trillion in client assets will invest in Bitcoin after this endorsement, the price of BTC is expected to continue rallying.

HIGHER LOWS

We expect Bitcoin to continue to make higher lows in its corrective moves and to follow the stock-to-flow model with prices eclipsing $100k in the summer of 2021.

JAN '21 MARKET UPDATE

January 11, 2021

 

This cryptocurrency sell-off marks the first significant retracement since Thanksgiving's  17% decline. 2021 has seen a relatively straight line move up. After the recent OCC statement allowing banks to clear public blockchain transactions, the move from roughly $27,000 to $42,000 has been more or less without pause.

OCC STATEMENT

January 7, 2021

 

LLG believes this to be tacit approval for banks to settle transactions on public blockchains. Add to this the fact that the SEC has deemed Bitcoin and Ethereum not to be securities, and this release gives permission to banks to engage with customers in certain cryptocurrencies.

THANKSGIVING SELLOFF

November 27, 2020

 

The price of Bitcoin fell from $19,500 to $16,200 on news that the Trump administration, in a parting gift to the crypto community, is considering regulating exchanges in such a way as to demand private wallet counterparty addresses. We think this is a temporary selloff that will be met with investors "buying the dip."

BTC APPROACHING 20k

November 24, 2020

 

The word "bubble" has not been associated with Bitcoin in this latest run-up. Bitcoin has progressed in the collective psyche from a misunderstood technological "tulip bulb", to a market-dominant cryptocurrency, and a legitimate, digital-gold type of investment.
