Ian King recently joined the Banyan Hill Publishing editorial team to add his cryptocurrency expertise to the board’s set of outstanding trading and investing skills. He is a former trader of dot com stocks, credit derivatives, mortgage bonds and equities. When King learned about the enormous potential of crypto assets, he quit his lucrative job as a hedge fund manager so he could educate people about how to make money trading bitcoin. He became the most active contributor on cryptos to Investopedia.
By early January 2018, the market for bitcoin and all other cryptocurrencies lost lots of money. In December 2017 the price of one bitcoin pushed close to $20,000. But the new year saw a drop of 71%, which is drastic.
However, the new investors bitcoin attracted in 2017 were not used to such volatility wiping out all their profits. They didn’t see bitcoin drop 85% in 2011. They didn’t hold it through the many other major dips and drawdowns in its history, even in 2017. By the end of that year, it seemed bitcoin knew only how to go up. So many people were not prepared for the downside 2018 brought. View more on Ian King at Stock Twits for more updates.
In his first article for Banyan Hill’s readers, King said the downturn was not the end of bitcoin, only the end of its beginning. For years the word about bitcoin had spread underground through libertarians and others who wanted it to replace the fiat money issued by governments. Nobody else had ever heard of bitcoin unless in conjunction with online drug sales on Silk Road or ransomware attacks. But that changed. By the end of 2017, bitcoin and other cryptos cross the tipping point to mass awareness. Bitcoin’s market price went up an astounding 1,500%, leading many people to believe they’d be rich if they had heard of it and bought in earlier (and if they resisted the urge to take profits). That ignited their greed and their fear of missing out. The total market capitalization of cryptocoins went from $18 billion to over $600 billion. Learn more on crunchbase about Ian King
Now that the market mania of December has subsided, many experts are saying it’s the end of bitcoin, and they couldn’t be happier. As King points out, although almost everybody has heard of bitcoin, few people own it. And few of those people actually understand it. Despite the stories of how people mortgaged their homes to buy crypto coins, the market is still a long way from being saturated. Learn more:https://banyanhill.com/expert/ian-king/

Financial expert Jeff Yastine believes there are only two types of stock that you can ever invest in, and those are value and those that are merely value traps. Jeff Yastine illustrates his point by explaining the differences. Yastine points to the Fairholme fiasco, when discussing investment risks without evaluating and proper market analysis.
Bruce Berkowitz is the founder of Fairholme and with his successes earned assets that totaled $20 billion. In 2011, he attempted to control his assets and as a result of that, his fund is only worth $2 billion. Yastine is trying to say that Berkowitz investment was done without proper research and evaluation of the stocks. Berkowitz put his money on Sears Holdings, which led him over the edge. Jeff Yastine said that Berkowitz originally told investors that Sears was worth $90 per share. Over time, that has drastically fallen. The value of shares has fallen closer to the negative and is not believed to improve anytime in the near future. Berkowitz says that Sears is now operating on losses and will continue to do so for a long period of time. Read more about Jeff Yastine at investmentu.com to know more.

Ted Bauman, an experienced investor and financial journalist, recently shared his thoughts on the sharing economy. He brought an example from his own experience, when he was going on vacation and had rented an RV. He wanted to spend the night in his RV, but the generator was not working and he could not turn on the air-conditioning. The temperature inside the RV was 90 degrees, and there were mosquitoes all around. He could not sleep at all.
Ted Bauman got his RV from a site called Outdoorsy. Outdoorsy is sort of an Airbnb for RVs. People can rent out their RVs to people who want to rent them.
However, this story exemplifies the problem with the sharing economy, which includes sites such as Airbnb and Uber. On Outdoorsy, everything has to be negotiated between the renter and the owner. This includes prices and things like maintenance. Unlike a real rental agency, none of this is monitored by Outdoorsy itself. Read more on crunchbase.com to know more about Ted Bauman.
This means that it is possible that when you get your RV, it will not be in a good condition. Perhaps something will be broken and end up not working. This happened to Ted Bauman. Although Outdoorsy promises 24/7 emergency roadside assistance, this did not help Ted.
First, the lock was corroded and the key that he needed to use the electric hookup system got stuck in the lock. He decided to rely on the generator, but it stopped providing juice although it was running. So he decided to call Outdoorsy and get their roadside assistance. However, he found out that the roadside assistance only applied if there was something related to mobility. Since the problem was not related to mobility, the best they could do was find a local RV technician at Ted’s own expense. They had to wait several hours, and then the Outdoorsy person called them back and said that they could not get through to the technician and that Ted should call the technician himself.
The technician never answered his messages. Ted was unable to get in touch with Outdoorsy again. He took the RV to a local facility, but since he was not the owner they did not want to do any repairs on it. In any case, you can see the risk of the sharing economy.
Ted Bauman is the editor of The Bauman Letter. He is a journalist with Banyan Hill Publishing
