Crypto vs. gold: if the USA has problems, everybody else will have them too

The creator of file-sharing platform Megaupload, Kim Dotcom, claims it's time to buy gold and crypto. He explains that the US economy is on the verge of collapse, its debt is astronomical, and 'the big crash is coming 100%'.

It may look like an unjustified claim yet. Dollar is very strong today, the US seemingly wins in trade wars, achieving economic victories, and its economy grows. But how long will it last? The stock market leverage is at record heights, $561 billion, and it could only get worse. Just think about it, it's equal to 1/5 of UK GDP. It can't last forever, and someday it will go down, and the higher it will climb, the bumpier will be the downfall. If many big players will decide to get out of position, it may trigger the collapse, a chain of liquidations. And if the biggest economy in the world has problems, everybody else will have them too.

Aside from the excessive leverage, there is another problem. The USA pursues its own agenda, and it doesn't care about other countries, putting pressure on everyone who has other interests. China, Russia, Turkey, even the European Union — all alliances and friendships don't matter when money is involved. This behavior also won't be tolerated forever — by trying to influence other countries via prohibiting any dollar operations with them, the US forces them to switch to other currencies, like EUR, CNY or even RUB. It's not good for the USA. While they are winning tactically, short-term, they are losing big-long term, because if de-dollarization happens, it would impact its economy very hard. So either way, it's a lose-lose situation. The only question is 'when'. Thus maybe Kim Dotcom is right, it's time to buy gold and crypto if crypto is going to retain its value during the hard times (that’s not an investment advice). These times could come in a few years, or maybe tomorrow.

BMW, Intel And Nielsen To Boost Blockchain Through Tribe Accelerator

Tribe Accelerator, the first blockchain accelerator to be backed by the Singapore government, has just announced strategic partnerships with BMW, Nielsen, and Intel Corporation. The incubator and startup accelerator hopes to leverage the capital, capabilities and resources of the three major corporations to aid the growth of smaller, technological innovative companies. In a press release, Tribe Accelerator said: “Tribe Accelerator is focused on laying the right foundations for the participating startups, and one of the best ways to do so, is to source for, and secure strategic partnerships with companies that have complementary capabilities, and the resources to push for a breakthrough in the industry.” The initiative is confident the long term prospects of blockchain are strong enough to merit full commitment and support from marquee businesses around the world. Ryan Chew, Managing Partner of Tribe Accelerator said: “We have a vision of how the technology – an enabler of cross sector innovation with transformative potential-can be beneficial in the everyday lives of people. To move forward as a society, we need to encourage experimentation, and once the benefits of blockchain technology become evident, mainstream adoption will undoubtedly follow.” Each of the three new partners is expected to work within its own set of vertical industries to lend expertise, knowledge, and technical mentorship to participating startup companies. Tribe Accelerator has closed the page for evaluating applications from project teams for its first batch of incubated companies, but pledges to open up again in April 2019. The building of a decentralized mainstream ecosystem is underway. Major companies in virtually every industry are leveraging, experimenting with, or actively developing blockchain solutions and projects… and organizations like the EEA, Starfleet Accelerator and Tribe Accelerator are paving the way for the mass adoption of a tokenized economy as a whole.   The author is invested in digital assets Join the conversation on Telegram and Twitter!
