Integration broker for P2P apps on BCH Chain
Alright guys, I apologize for all the shilling on this sub for this project, but it was suggested by the admin.
This flipstarter has 1 day left before it expires, and needs one last push to get it through.
CashSQL: the integration broker helps you get data out of (and put data into) the BCH chain through a nice and easy SQL database of your choosing. It's designed to help build P2P apps rapidly. Enveloping data transactions inside layer-1 BCH is tough. If apps could rely on a simple SQL DB, with community developed data-transformers, life is easier for all apps using those layer-2 protocols. This means more devs, more apps and more activity on BCH.
If this project makes sense to you, consider a PLEDGE NOW!

CashSQL Vision

DELIVERABLE SUMMARY

  • Full Blockchain Database: the entire BCH blockchain available as SQL database. Useful for chainalysis, data analytics, etc. This database can be optionally deployed by users.
  • Light-weight Database: lean and mean database for tracking user-specific blockchain data. Most applications will only need to use this.
  • DBMS support: SQL Server, MySQL/MariaDB and SQLite (has plug-n-play design, others can be added later).
  • Mempool Integration: JSON/XML/Web-Socket API for real-time event data.
  • Simplified Schema Design: blockchain data is extracted and processed into higher-level data abstractions that developers can easily use. For example, account balances, debits and credits for BCH and SLP addresses, confirmations for transactions, etc.
  • Extensible Schema: users can extend scheme with custom columns and tables that suit their applications.
  • Transformable Data: users can plug-n-play custom data-transformations that extract meaningful high-level data from compressed blockchain data.
  • Real-Time Capability: databases are maintained in real-time with minimal locking.
  • Send Capability: includes “outbound” tables for users to push out transactions onto the network. Includes send receipts and history tables.
  • High-performance: expertly-tuned database design for large and small deployments.
  • Enterprise-ready: Written in latest C#/.NET, a popular enterprise-class platform.
  • Cross-Platform: Target platform is .NET 5 which runs on Windows, Linux, macOS and Unix.
  • Simple GUI: an explorer-like GUI is shipped with the backend based on HTML5.
  • Open Source: Fully open-sourced under MIT license.
A prototype is currently available at http://blockchainsql.io.

WHO WE ARE

Sphere 10 Software (ABN: 39600596316) is an Australian based LLC led by Director and Chief Software Architect, Herman Schoenfeld. Herman has been involved in cryptocurrency since 2011, and was the "retrospective co-founder" of the PascalCoin cryptocurrency. Herman has appeared in commercial programming aired on Bloomberg and Fox Business News as well as radio broadcasts in the NYC area. Herman has been a long-time supporter of Bitcoin Cash and has always promoted it as the true, original Bitcoin as laid out in the Satoshi whitepaper. However, due to certain personalities dominant in BCH, Herman was de-motivated from participating until now. Since the BSV split and with the prospect of BCHN taking node leadership in November, Herman is very bullish on BCH and motivated to support BCH into the bright future and imminent explosive growth it was destined for. Sphere 10 Software will allocate 2 developers to work on CashSQL (one of them Herman). All the funds from this fund-raiser will be used for paying the time and material of development.

Monero Community Workgroup is preparing for the large growth ahead

Diego (u/rehrar), Doug (u/needmoney90), and Justin (u/SamsungGalaxayPlayer) would like to share some exciting news regarding the Monero Community Workgroup (MCW). The Monero community is growing, and so is our support and group of volunteers. The TL;DR is that you can expect some cool things as we grow.

Some MCW History

The MCW initially began as the Monero Marketing Workgroup in March 2017. Diego was interested in helping grow the Monero community, so he contacted Justin and set up the MoneroMarketing subreddit. At the time, the idea of a Monero marketing initiative shocked many in the community, who greatly appreciated Monero's general distance from the marketing efforts by many ICOs and scams around that time.
The Monero Marketing Workgroup focused mostly on preparing educational materials and getting people involved to work on Monero-related initiatives. Shortly after the workgroup began, it transitioned into an area that needed more love: community organization and communication.
Up until this point, the Monero community was focused around the developer meetings and the Monero subreddit. While these are still highly relevant in the Monero ecosystem (for good reason), there wasn't a great way for people to stay updated with the latest news and to discuss non-development items. The Monero Community Crowdfunding System (at the time Forum Funding System) submissions weren't discussed in the same way that they are today, and there was no central Community Workgroup to help bring initiatives together. It was obvious that with a larger, more diverse Monero community, a dedicated set of resources would be necessary to connect all these projects together.
The Monero Marketing Workgroup became the Monero Community Workgroup during the first Community Workgroup meeting on 18 June 2017. These meetings have largely occurred every other Saturday ever since and serve as an essential community service to discuss CCS proposals, hear workgroup updates and news, and discuss new ideas. The Community Workgroup channel (#monero-community) is used for many other purposes, including other scheduled meetings on deemed-necessary items of interest and regular feedback, questions, and chat.
On 7 October 2017, the workgroup hosted its first Coffee Chat, a casual conversation covering the month's recent news and most important discussion topics. These Coffee Chats help humanize the Monero community, who until this point typically were only known by their pseudonyms. The MCW played a part in the Monero Konferenco, Critical Decentralization Cluster at the Chaos Communication Congress, and Monero Village at Defcon livestreams and derived content. It also hosts Breaking Monero, a series that features members from the Monero Research Lab who discuss Monero's limitations.
A year after the MCW became its new name, the newly-founded Monero Outreach Workgroup took over many of its initial ambitions in June 2018. Other related workgroups like Monero Ecosystem have their own communities and functions.

The Community Keeps Growing

The Monero communities are significantly larger than they were back in early-2017, and they keep on growing. In early-2017, there were no mobile wallets, the GUI was only 3 months old, there were far fewer exchanges, etc. Today, Monero has one of the largest, most respected, and most passionate communities. We have the third largest number of developers of any cryptocurrency project, we are the only project with our own DEF CON village, and we are one of the few names that everybody knows. Awesome work to everyone around, truly.
With larger communities comes more work. The community deserves reliable, appropriate resources to sustain this growth. In a decentralized community, this is difficult. Monero Core provides some essential services such as the CCS, getmonero.org, Mattermost, and GitLab. However, they have been unable to meet the growing needs of the community alone. Thus, the MCW has been happy to support other needs to the extent possible: we discuss CCS proposals during our meetings, host several servers, organize Coffee Chats and conference talks, and more, along with efforts of other workgroups. These have become such a significant undertaking, and that's a good thing. As Monero continues to set the gold standard for cryptocurrencies the expectations keep growing. It's awesome to be a part of something where so many people care.

Our Future

The MCW has grown too much for the three of us to organize all the resources we need, let alone the needs of everyone in the Monero communities and workgroups. Thus, we are furthering our commitment and offering substantially more services in the coming months. To get there, we need your support to fill volunteer leadership and support positions.
Expect the following dedicated services from us:
  1. Jitsi server with higher framerate and resolutions than Jitsi Meet, so that our Coffee Chats, conferences, and other events are better quality than before.
  2. NextCloud to safely and securely collaborate on blog posts, share files, and more.
  3. Sandstorm and Wekan kanban board (open source Trello copy) to keep track of, propose, and assign tasks and projects.
  4. Chatwoot to provide tailored support for Monero users with a volunteer support community (also a good learning exercise).
  5. Mastodon to communicate about Monero and other news, so we aren't dependent on Twitter's policies and security.
  6. Flarum forum for Monero news and discussions, so we aren't dependent on Reddit.
We need your help to make this happen! We will form "task forces" to focus on certain areas like marketing, system administration, meetings, moderation, and finance. If you have any of these skills, please join #monero-community and say hi, or shoot us an email ([email protected])!
Doug, Diego, and Justin feel that these changes will allow the Monero community to grow in new ways and continue collaborating. The community consists of many workgroups that focus on projects that they are interested in, and we want to support the efforts of these communities.
To allow these changes, Justin will form an LLC, with him and Doug being officially on the board, and Diego taking an advisory role.
Creating a legal entity serves two distinct purposes. First, it allows us to aggregate payments from many people into a single entity to pay the costs for hosting various community servers/services. This greatly reduces our own workload and out of pocket payment. Secondly, it allows us to aggregate multiple social media handles that are currently controlled by individuals under a single entity, to reduce the "Bus Factor."
Of course, the MCW will remain very much grounded in the ideals that made that made it great in the first place. And the entity will always support the Monero communities, never claim to fully represent everyone involved in Monero. It can only ever represent the efforts of those involved.
Current and future goals of the MCW include:
  1. Provide resources as necessary and reasonable, such as communication platforms
  2. Organize discussions to promote communication, such as Community Meetings and Coffee Chats
  3. Promote positive culture through events, such as with Coffee Chats, the Monero Konferenco, the Moneoversary, and the Monero DEF CON Village
  4. Support other Monero workgroups and Monero ecosystem projects
  5. Provide mechanisms to collect feedback on community, developer, and research proposals
  6. Discuss the Monero CCS ideas and otherwise support the Monero CCS
  7. Promote Monero and privacy education and marketing
  8. Serve as an available community mediatoarbitrator where reasonable
  9. Communicate the broad interests of the Monero community and provide a voice where and how appropriate
  10. Collaborate with other projects, companies, governments, and communities

Monero Community Support LLC

Q: Why does the MCW think that an LLC is needed?
A: For two primary reasons. First, payments. As mentioned, there is existing digital infrastructure, currently paid out of pocket by MCW leaders. Even if a CCS proposal was to be explored, it would make personal accounting and tax reporting very difficult as assets would technically be mixed with personal assets, throwing off capital gains calculations. Up until now this has been a sacrifice of time that we were content to make, but as we continue to ramp up our goals it is becoming increasingly cumbersome, and alternative methods are needed. An LLC would be able to hold these monetary assets as its own entity, and all funds could be kept separate from personal funds, leading to much easier accounting all around.
Secondly, an LLC would allow for digital infrastructure to come under the legal purview of several people, reducing the possibility for any particular person going rogue and decimating what has been built. There may be concern about bringing resources under a corporation, and that this is not in the spirit of Monero, but one thing to note is that all assets and services (noted above) are FOSS/CC. Meaning if at any time a community doesn't care for what the MCW accomplishes under this LLC, they can simply start their own infrastructure with low switching costs. Once again: EVERYTHING IS FOSS/CC.
Q: Why not a nonprofit, cooperative, or other type of organization?
A: While not out of the question, these take additional effort. We hope to grow into these organization types with the help of others. However certain registrations take a lot of time and effort, plus has quite significant restrictions on activities. The LLC will allow us the flexibility and convenience we need now, especially when we currently have no income anyway.

Looking Ahead

The MCW has a mountain range of opportunities ahead of it, as do all Monero communities and workgroups. We hope that our efforts are of use to you and others, and we hope that you join us in making something great :)
Justin, Diego, and Doug

Biblical End Time Events: The Truth Unfolded (A Super Conspiracy) Part 1

Biblical End Time Events: The Truth Unfolded (A Super Conspiracy) Part 1
I run a web company. On our homepage we offer free quotes. On August 11, 2020, I received the following "free quote request":

Free Quote Request: This Google doc exposes how this scamdemic is part of a bigger plan to crush your business and keep it closed or semi-operational (with heavy rescritions) while big corporations remain open without consequences. This Covid lie has ruined many peoples lives and businesses and is all done on purpose to bring about the One World Order. It goes much deeper than this but the purpose of this doc is to expose the evil and wickedness that works in the background to ruin peoples lives. So feel free to share this message with friends and family. No need to reply to the email i provided above as its not registered.

Here is a quick synopsis of Bill Gates Vaccine/Microchip and the Mark of the Beast as mentioned in the bible

The connection between the vaccine, the microchip, and how they link to The Mark of the Beast
Although you see information in regards to Bill Gates's vaccine as well as the microchip patent submitted by Microsoft recently, a conclusive parallel we can draw from both of these things is the microchip could very well be within the vaccine itself (within the syringe needle that is) as a single event or the vaccine and microchip will be administered in 2 different events (which i highly doubt given with what is currently going on).
Either way, I ask those reading this document, to never take the vaccine/microchip whether these are administered at the same time or not, as they represent the Mark of the Beast.
Essentially, the evil powers that be will push for a cashless society using this plandemic (eventually saying it's not safe to handle cash), and in doing so, if people want to continue to buy and sell, then they must take the vaccine/microchip to signify they are deemed "safe" enough to return back into society. Basically the microchip will act as your new digital wallet in which it will be used to buy and sell things. But before this happens the evil powers that be will purposely crash all currencies (to make them worthless; look at the biblical verse Ezekiel 7:19 below) so they can usher in their version of bitcoin type of cryptocurrency in conjunction with the microchip.
Ezekiel 7:19 King James Version (KJV)
19 They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.
During this time many people will be fooled into taking the Mark of the Beast because they will have trusted their governments, false teachers/prophets, and mainstream media without carefully reading what the bible has to say about the Mark of the Beast.
Despite all this info, one thing is for sure, if you cannot buy or sell, or continue life normally as you used to unless you take the vaccine/microchip, then you will know this is the Mark of the Beast as mentioned in the Bible.

Revelation 13:16-18 King James Version (KJV)

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

The Bible is very clear: If you take the Mark of The Beast, you will be cast into the Lake of Fire!!!
Revelation 14:9-11 King James Version (KJV)
9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

If you want to learn more, I have put together a playlist of 500+ videos (always adding new videos everyday) that bases itself around biblical end time prophecies through people's dreams, visions, along with other videos that expose the evil and wicked things the higher powers that be, have planned for us. This playlist helps bring the darkness into light while connecting the dots relating to the bible. I hope this information serves you well in uncovering the real truth.

I have a lot more info to share. In case you want a more detailed breakdown of the many things that are happening, here it is:
Bill Gates is a wicked man. I'll break down the evidence for you in a series of videos located down below.
1. Innovating to zero! | Bill Gates
https://youtu.be/JaF-fq2Zn7I?t=236
Bill gates mentioned back in 2010 about reducing the global population through vaccines video starts around 3:56 min
2. Bill Gates Caught Funding Netflix Docuseries PANDEMIC #coronaviruses #VirusCorona #virus
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=En3-eHyf68c&list=PLm9W9PpTsiQp7pzG6cnmf4iByUo45suup&index
Bill gates funded the netflix series called "Pandemic" which was in production 6 months prior to the virus outbreak in Wuhan China. Not only did he fund it, but the netflix series paints Bill gates as a savior in his fight to "save lives" and mysteriously releases a few days after the virus was breaking out in Wuhan China.
3. Event 201 Pandemic Exercise: Highlights Reel
https://youtu.be/AoLw-Q8X174
Bill gates funded the event 201 that was hosted back in Nov 2019 which was 3 months prior to the virus outbreak in Wuhan China. Event 201 was used to conduct a fake simulation pandemic of a virus to see how the world would respond. Funny enough, the first 40 seconds of the event 201 use the "corona virus" as the test simulation virus in this event.
4. Bill Gates of Hell Video Series. Here is part 1 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jo5e7qS85ZI&list=PLm9W9PpTsiQp7pzG6cnmf4iByUo45suup&index)

Bill Gates funded the research of the virus through the pilbright institute and not only does bill gates have the patent on the virus he also holds the cure/vaccine which he will try to get us to take. The original video that was uploaded was deleted and when the video was reuploaded, the content creator went back to the same website to check on Bill Gates having patented the virus and low and behold, that very website scrubbed bill gate's name from it
  1. Bill Gates funds the ID2020 initiative in which they (globalist elite) want to track us using digital IDs which are very very wicked and satanic. This digital ID is part of the mark of the beast system. https://id2020.org/
  2. This is all planned based on the Georgia Guidestones in which I quote "maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature". If you want picture proof of that you can visit this site https://www.auricmedia.net/tag/georgia-guidestones/
All of what Bill Gates is doing is trying to get us to take the Vaccine/Microchip which is the mark of the beast as mentioned in the bible. If you Go to your KJV (King James Version) bible and read Revelation 13:16-18 you will understand the meaning behind all this.
Revelation 13:16-18 King James Version (KJV)
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

If you take the Mark of the Beast, this is what happens

Revelation 14:9-11 King James Version (KJV)
9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

If you refuse the Mark of the Beast, this is what happens

Revelation 20:4 King James Version (KJV)
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
All of what you see, the bible foretells us of what will happen and what is to come. The wicked elite planned all of this to happen. It was all planned by design. To usher in their one world order agenda using the virus as a scapegoat, to decimate world economies where people will lose their homes, businesses, and possessions. People will be starving during these times, and there will be chaos in the streets in due time. This is so the anti christ can rush in and save the day by getting you to take this evil vaccine/microchip/mark of the beast as the bible foretells us. That is why we are called unto repentance of our sins everyday and have faith in Jesus Christ who died on the cross for our sins, was buried, and rose again on the 3rd day. In times like these, we are called to pray because there will be massive destruction from both man and God in the last days.
The tribulation will last 7 years and billions of people will die from this. Not only that, but there will be 21 judgments (7 seals, 7 vials, and 7 bowls) from God throughout the 7 years with which each judgement will be worse off than the last until the 2nd coming of Christ. These judgements are meant for people who did not repent of their sins (living in a constant sinful and ungodly lifestyle), and/or reject the word of God along with not having faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour who died on the cross for ALL our sins, was buried, and rose again on the 3rd day.
Because of what is happening around us, it will continue to get worse. They do this so people will be desperate enough to stop the pain. And the elites will present the vaccine/microchip/mark of the beast as the cure for the people's pain. But those that take the mark of the beast will live during the 7 years of tribulation until the 2nd coming of Christ in which Jesus Christ will come back to earth and kill those who took the mark of the beast and cast them to hell. During the 7 year tribulation, those that took the Mark of the Beast actually suffer from the 1st bowl judgement that is poured out. Here is that verse:
**Revelation 16:1-2 King James Version (KJV)**16 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.
2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.
When you take the mark of the beast, it changes your DNA conforming yourself with the beast, which is satan. Once you take the mark of the beast, you will be damned to hell and eventually be casted into the lake of fire as the final destination place forever and there is no coming back.
This information is not to be taken lightly. If you're interested to learn more of the evil and wickedness that is planned before us, here is a 500+ youtube playlist (and growing everyday) of all things relating to the end times as the bible describes.
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLm9W9PpTsiQp7pzG6cnmf4iByUo45suup
I encourage you to share this information with friends and family to help them understand the times we are living in.
We are called to pray everyday in order to repent (turn away) from our sins and to have faith in Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for all our sins, was buried, and rose again on the 3rd day. It's important to repent daily because we sin on a daily basis whether we commit intentional sin or not. Also, pray daily because you are never promised a tomorrow.
John 3:16-21 King James Version (KJV)
16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
John 14:6 King James Version (KJV)
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 King James Version (KJV)
9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
Revelation 21:8 King James Version (KJV)
8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
1 Peter 5:6-8 King James Version (KJV)
6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
7 Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
Matthew 6:24 King James Version (KJV)
24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Revelation 3:16 King James Version (KJV)
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Matthew 7:21-23 King James Version (KJV)
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Although we are called to repent of our sins and have faith in Jesus Christ who died on the cross for all of our sins, biblical scripture also tells us that we must be born again, through water baptism, in order to enter into the kingdom of God. Here are some biblical verses that expand on that:
John 3:3-5 King James Version (KJV)
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Matthew 28:19-20 King James Version (KJV)
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

ETHE & GBTC (Grayscale) Frequently Asked Questions

It is no doubt Grayscale’s booming popularity as a mainstream investment has caused a lot of community hullabaloo lately. As such, I felt it was worth making a FAQ regarding the topic. I’m looking to update this as needed and of course am open to suggestions / adding any questions.
The goal is simply to have a thread we can link to anyone with questions on Grayscale and its products. Instead of explaining the same thing 3 times a day, shoot those posters over to this thread. My hope is that these questions are answered in a fairly simple and easy to understand manner. I think as the sub grows it will be a nice reference point for newcomers.
Disclaimer: I do NOT work for Grayscale and as such am basing all these answers on information that can be found on their website / reports. (Grayscale’s official FAQ can be found here). I also do NOT have a finance degree, I do NOT have a Series 6 / 7 / 140-whatever, and I do NOT work with investment products for my day job. I have an accounting background and work within the finance world so I have the general ‘business’ knowledge to put it all together, but this is all info determined in my best faith effort as a layman. The point being is this --- it is possible I may explain something wrong or missed the technical terms, and if that occurs I am more than happy to update anything that can be proven incorrect
Everything below will be in reference to ETHE but will apply to GBTC as well. If those two segregate in any way, I will note that accordingly.
What is Grayscale? 
Grayscale is the company that created the ETHE product. Their website is https://grayscale.co/
What is ETHE? 
ETHE is essentially a stock that intends to loosely track the price of ETH. It does so by having each ETHE be backed by a specific amount of ETH that is held on chain. Initially, the newly minted ETHE can only be purchased by institutions and accredited investors directly from Grayscale. Once a year has passed (6 months for GBTC) it can then be listed on the OTCQX Best Market exchange for secondary trading. Once listed on OTCQX, anyone investor can purchase at this point. Additional information on ETHE can be found here.
So ETHE is an ETF? 
No. For technical reasons beyond my personal understandings it is not labeled an ETF. I know it all flows back to the “Securities Act Rule 144”, but due to my limited knowledge on SEC regulations I don’t want to misspeak past that. If anyone is more knowledgeable on the subject I am happy to input their answer here.
How long has ETHE existed? 
ETHE was formed 12/14/2017. GBTC was formed 9/25/2013.
How is ETHE created? 
The trust will issue shares to “Authorized Participants” in groups of 100 shares (called baskets). Authorized Participants are the only persons that may place orders to create these baskets and they do it on behalf of the investor.

Note – The way their reports word this makes it sound like there is an army of authorizers doing the dirty work, but in reality there is only one Authorized Participant. At this moment the “Genesis” company is the sole Authorized Participant. Genesis is owned by the “Digital Currency Group, Inc.” which is the parent company of Grayscale as well. (And to really go down the rabbit hole it looks like DCG is the parent company of CoinDesk and is “backing 150+ companies across 30 countries, including Coinbase, Ripple, and Chainalysis.”)

How does Grayscale acquire the ETH to collateralize the ETHE product? 
An Investor may acquire ETHE by paying in cash or exchanging ETH already owned.
Source: Creation and Redemption of Shares section on page 40 of the “Grayscale Ethereum Trust Annual Report (2019)” – Located Here
Where does Grayscale store their ETH? Does it have a specific wallet address we can follow? 
ETH is stored with Coinbase Custody Trust Company, LLC. I am unaware of any specific address or set of addresses that can be used to verify the ETH is actually there.
As an aside - I would actually love to see if anyone knows more about this as it’s something that’s sort of peaked my interest after being asked about it… I find it doubtful we can find that however.

Can ETHE be redeemed for ETH? 
No, currently there is no way to give your shares of ETHE back to Grayscale to receive ETH back. The only method of getting back into ETH would be to sell your ETHE to someone else and then use those proceeds to buy ETH yourself.
Source: Redemption Procedures on page 41 of the “Grayscale Ethereum Trust Annual Report (2019)” – Located Here
Why are they not redeeming shares? 
I think the report summarizes it best:
Redemptions of Shares are currently not permitted and the Trust is unable to redeem Shares. Subject to receipt of regulatory approval from the SEC and approval by the Sponsor in its sole discretion, the Trust may in the future operate a redemption program. Because the Trust does not believe that the SEC would, at this time, entertain an application for the waiver of rules needed in order to operate an ongoing redemption program, the Trust currently has no intention of seeking regulatory approval from the SEC to operate an ongoing redemption program.
Source: Redemption Procedures on page 41 of the “Grayscale Ethereum Trust Annual Report (2019)” – Located Here
What is the fee structure? 
ETHE has an annual fee of 2.5%. GBTC has an annual fee of 2.0%. Fees are paid by selling the underlying ETH / BTC collateralizing the asset.
Source: ETHE’s informational page on Grayscale’s website - Located Here
Source: Description of Trust on page 31 & 32 of the “Grayscale Ethereum Trust Annual Report (2019)” – Located Here
What is the ratio of ETH to ETHE? 
At the time of posting (6/19/2020) each ETHE share is backed by .09391605 ETH. Each share of GBTC is backed by .00096038 BTC.
ETHE & GBTC’s specific information page on Grayscale’s website updates the ratio daily – Located Here
For a full historical look at this ratio, it can be found on the Grayscale home page on the upper right side if you go to Tax Documents > 2019 Tax Documents > Grayscale Ethereum Trust 2019 Tax Letter.
Why is the ratio not 1:1? Why is it always decreasing? 
While I cannot say for certain why the initial distribution was not a 1:1 backing, it is more than likely to keep the price down and allow more investors a chance to purchase ETHE / GBTC.
As noted above, fees are paid by selling off the ETH collateralizing ETHE. So this number will always be trending downward as time goes on.
Source: Description of Trust on page 32 of the “Grayscale Ethereum Trust Annual Report (2019)” – Located Here
I keep hearing about how this is locked supply… explain? 
As noted above, there is currently no redemption program for converting your ETHE back into ETH. This means that once an ETHE is issued, it will remain in circulation until a redemption program is formed --- something that doesn’t seem to be too urgent for the SEC or Grayscale at the moment. Tiny amounts will naturally be removed due to fees, but the bulk of the asset is in there for good.
Knowing that ETHE cannot be taken back and destroyed at this time, the ETH collateralizing it will not be removed from the wallet for the foreseeable future. While it is not fully locked in the sense of say a totally lost key, it is not coming out any time soon.
Per their annual statement:
The Trust’s ETH will be transferred out of the ETH Account only in the following circumstances: (i) transferred to pay the Sponsor’s Fee or any Additional Trust Expenses, (ii) distributed in connection with the redemption of Baskets (subject to the Trust’s obtaining regulatory approval from the SEC to operate an ongoing redemption program and the consent of the Sponsor), (iii) sold on an as-needed basis to pay Additional Trust Expenses or (iv) sold on behalf of the Trust in the event the Trust terminates and liquidates its assets or as otherwise required by law or regulation.

Grayscale now owns a huge chunk of both ETH and BTC’s supply… should we be worried about manipulation, a sell off to crash the market crash, a staking cartel? 
First, it’s important to remember Grayscale is a lot more akin to an exchange then say an investment firm. Grayscale is working on behalf of its investors to create this product for investor control. Grayscale doesn’t ‘control’ the ETH it holds any more then Coinbase ‘controls’ the ETH in its hot wallet. (Note: There are likely some varying levels of control, but specific to this topic Grayscale cannot simply sell [legally, at least] the ETH by their own decision in the same manner Coinbase wouldn't be able to either.)
That said, there shouldn’t be any worry in the short to medium time-frame. As noted above, Grayscale can’t really remove ETH other than for fees or termination of the product. At 2.5% a year, fees are noise in terms of volume. Grayscale seems to be the fastest growing product in the crypto space at the moment and termination of the product seems unlikely.
IF redemptions were to happen tomorrow, it’s extremely unlikely we would see a mass exodus out of the product to redeem for ETH. And even if there was incentive to get back to ETH, the premium makes it so that it would be much more cost effective to just sell your ETHE on the secondary market and buy ETH yourself. Remember, any redemption is up to the investors and NOT something Grayscale has direct control over.
Yes, but what about [insert criminal act here]… 
Alright, yes. Technically nothing is stopping Grayscale from selling all the ETH / BTC and running off to the Bahamas (Hawaii?). BUT there is no real reason for them to do so. Barry is an extremely public figure and it won’t be easy for him to get away with that. Grayscale’s Bitcoin Trust creates SEC reports weekly / bi-weekly and I’m sure given the sentiment towards crypto is being watched carefully. Plus, Grayscale is making tons of consistent revenue and thus has little to no incentive to give that up for a quick buck.
That’s a lot of ‘happy little feels’ Bob, is there even an independent audit or is this Tether 2.0? 
Actually yes, an independent auditor report can be found in their annual reports. It is clearly aimed more towards the financial side and I doubt the auditors are crypto savants, but it is at least one extra set of eyes. Auditors are Friedman LLP – Auditor since 2015.
Source: Independent Auditor Report starting on page 116 (of the PDF itself) of the “Grayscale Ethereum Trust Annual Report (2019)” – Located Here
As mentioned by user TheCrpytosAndBloods (In Comments Below), a fun fact:
The company’s auditors Friedman LLP were also coincidentally TetheBitfinex’s auditors until They controversially parted ways in 2018 when the Tether controversy was at its height. I am not suggesting for one moment that there is anything shady about DCG - I just find it interesting it’s the same auditor.
“Grayscale sounds kind of lame” / “Not your keys not your crypto!” / “Why is anyone buying this, it sounds like a scam?” 
Welp, for starters this honestly is not really a product aimed at the people likely to be reading this post. To each their own, but do remember just because something provides no value to you doesn’t mean it can’t provide value to someone else. That said some of the advertised benefits are as follows:
So for example, I can set up an IRA at a brokerage account that has $0 trading fees. Then I can trade GBTC and ETHE all day without having to worry about tracking my taxes. All with the relative safety something like E-Trade provides over Binance.
As for how it benefits the everyday ETH holder? I think the supply lock is a positive. I also think this product exposes the Ethereum ecosystem to people who otherwise wouldn’t know about it.
Why is there a premium? Why is ETHE’s premium so insanely high compared to GBTC’s premium? 
There are a handful of theories of why a premium exists at all, some even mentioned in the annual report. The short list is as follows:
Why is ETHE’s so much higher the GBTC’s? Again, a few thoughts:

Are there any other differences between ETHE and GBTC? 
I touched on a few of the smaller differences, but one of the more interesting changes is GBTC is now a “SEC reporting company” as of January 2020. Which again goes beyond my scope of knowledge so I won’t comment on it too much… but the net result is GBTC is now putting out weekly / bi-weekly 8-K’s and annual 10-K’s. This means you can track GBTC that much easier at the moment as well as there is an extra layer of validity to the product IMO.
I’m looking for some statistics on ETHE… such as who is buying, how much is bought, etc? 
There is a great Q1 2020 report I recommend you give a read that has a lot of cool graphs and data on the product. It’s a little GBTC centric, but there is some ETHE data as well. It can be found here hidden within the 8-K filings.Q1 2020 is the 4/16/2020 8-K filing.
For those more into a GAAP style report see the 2019 annual 10-K of the same location.
Is Grayscale only just for BTC and ETH? 
No, there are other products as well. In terms of a secondary market product, ETCG is the Ethereum Classic version of ETHE. Fun Fact – ETCG was actually put out to the secondary market first. It also has a 3% fee tied to it where 1% of it goes to some type of ETC development fund.
In terms of institutional and accredited investors, there are a few ‘fan favorites’ such as Bitcoin Cash, Litcoin, Stellar, XRP, and Zcash. Something called Horizion (Backed by ZEN I guess? Idk to be honest what that is…). And a diversified Mutual Fund type fund that has a little bit of all of those. None of these products are available on the secondary market.
Are there alternatives to Grayscale? 
I know they exist, but I don’t follow them. I’ll leave this as a “to be edited” section and will add as others comment on what they know.
Per user Over-analyser (in comments below):

Denominated in SEK and EUR. Certainly available in some UK pensions (SIPP).
As asked by pegcity - Okay so I was under the impression you can just give them your own ETH and get ETHE, but do you get 11 ETHE per ETH or do you get the market value of ETH in USD worth of ETHE? 
I have always understood that the ETHE issued directly through Grayscale is issued without the premium. As in, if I were to trade 1 ETH for ETHE I would get 11, not say only 2 or 3 because the secondary market premium is so high. And if I were paying cash only I would be paying the price to buy 1 ETH to get my 11 ETHE. Per page 39 of their annual statement, it reads as follows:
The Trust will issue Shares to Authorized Participants from time to time, but only in one or more Baskets (with a Basket being a block of 100 Shares). The Trust will not issue fractions of a Basket. The creation (and, should the Trust commence a redemption program, redemption) of Baskets will be made only in exchange for the delivery to the Trust, or the distribution by the Trust, of the number of whole and fractional ETH represented by each Basket being created (or, should the Trust commence a redemption program, redeemed), which is determined by dividing (x) the number of ETH owned by the Trust at 4:00 p.m., New York time, on the trade date of a creation or redemption order, after deducting the number of ETH representing the U.S. dollar value of accrued but unpaid fees and expenses of the Trust (converted using the ETH Index Price at such time, and carried to the eighth decimal place), by (y) the number of Shares outstanding at such time (with the quotient so obtained calculated to one one-hundred-millionth of one ETH (i.e., carried to the eighth decimal place)), and multiplying such quotient by 100 (the “Basket ETH Amount”). All questions as to the calculation of the Basket ETH Amount will be conclusively determined by the Sponsor and will be final and binding on all persons interested in the Trust. The Basket ETH Amount multiplied by the number of Baskets being created or redeemed is the “Total Basket ETH Amount.” The number of ETH represented by a Share will gradually decrease over time as the Trust’s ETH are used to pay the Trust’s expenses. Each Share represented approximately 0.0950 ETH and 0.0974 ETH as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

HOW BITCOIN INTEREST ACCOUNT WORKS

HOW BITCOIN INTEREST ACCOUNT WORKS

Why to Use Bitcoin Interest Account?


https://preview.redd.it/1kp9upu4eep51.jpg?width=1418&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=a41794694c7db45a27a3b863664152d134be7bd3
Once you purchased Bitcoin, you can start immediately earning interest on your Bitcoin holdings. This is a unique advantage of Bitcoin, comparing to traditional asset classes. Generally, you lend your Bitcoin to a Bitcoin lending company on predetermined financial terms. To start generating Bitcoin passive income, you need to sign up for the Bitcoin interest account and deposit your Bitcoin. You will be able to earn Bitcoin interest after the onboarding process is completed and your interest account is active.

How Bitcoin Interest Is Paid


https://preview.redd.it/1ofvqpg6eep51.jpg?width=1183&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=afdf281e60e22a02b0d5b4ce4dfa162c83b2cfc1
The Bitcoin lending company will be paying you monthly interest in Bitcoin. Your Bitcoin interest may be compounded, meaning it can be added to a principal loan amount on the interest payout date, increasing the total loan return. The Bitcoin lending company is obliged to ensure the security of your Bitcoin holdings and should be liable for any potential losses. Bitcoin lending companies usually hold their Bitcoin reserves with a trusted Bitcoin custodian to mitigate any potential security risks.

Bitcoin Interest Account Yield


https://preview.redd.it/tx1r0pabeep51.jpg?width=810&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=b1b03562932c078b9daf8438f5aab3f4ef16e065
Bitcoin interest rates are significantly higher than interest rates offered by banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions. You can earn up to 6% annually, if you keep your Bitcoin on BlockFi interest account. It’s worth mentioning that traditional financial institution pay approximately 1% annual interest rate on saving accounts in the United States. Therefore, Bitcoin interest account can generate on average six times more income than a regular savings account.

How Bitcoin Lending Companies Make Money


https://preview.redd.it/klq5a3adeep51.jpg?width=999&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=473785b22902d3a6f4d076b94921836d2faefc61
Bitcoin interest rates offered by Bitcoin lending companies are usually high, because lending companies are able to lend your Bitcoin to institutions with even higher interest rates. Those institutions prefer to borrow not to purchase Bitcoin to execute leverage trades where Bitcoin margin is required. Bitcoin lending company usually lends your Bitcoin to institutions on over-collaterized terms, keeps the margin, and therefore remains profitable. Over-collaterized terms mean that Bitcoin borrower provides Bitcoin lending company with a USD collateral, which value exceeds the loan amount.

INVESTMENT PORTFOLIO DIVERSIFICATION WITH BITCOIN

INVESTMENT PORTFOLIO DIVERSIFICATION WITH BITCOIN

Bitcoin Correlation with Traditional Asset Classes


https://preview.redd.it/7mduak5reep51.jpg?width=1000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=bdc7e4fce8647f22d935360460891cd0f7b7e460
New asset classes such as Bitcoin are rare and powerful because they may offer a substantial return stream while providing a significant diversification benefit. Indeed, Bitcoin has largely maintained a low correlation with most traditional asset classes such as stocks and bonds. As a result, Bitcoin investors can not only receive potential high return but also efficiently diversify their investment portfolios.

The Institutional Investors Digital Asset Survey by Fidelity Digital Assets


https://preview.redd.it/4p25cj0teep51.png?width=1019&format=png&auto=webp&s=e0f32670bcf5872a5a974c69ef6579941acf7156
Based on the Fidelity Digital Assets survey “The Institutional Investors Digital Asset Survey” conducted in 2020, more than 35% of the U.S. and European institutional investors have already invested in digital assets. 25% of surveyed institutions have exposure to Bitcoin, the largest by market cap and the most secure and liquid digital asset. More than 60% of surveyed institutions indicated that digital assets may become a part of their investment portfolios.

Investment Portfolio Performance with Bitcoin Diversification


https://preview.redd.it/ft8kb7pveep51.png?width=485&format=png&auto=webp&s=2da85eeb4c5e11d27a1c5856948d07db8d72ae07
Even a small allocation to Bitcoin can enhance risk-adjusted return of the investment portfolio. Based on the assumed risk and return of the traditional global 60/40 portfolio and Bitcoin, the traditional global 60/40 (95% allocation) + Bitcoin (5% allocation) hypothetical simulated portfolio would generate roughly 500 bps of additional return on an annualized basis when compared to the traditional global 60/40 portfolio, at the same level of risk. Therefore, Bitcoin investment can significantly improve investment portfolio performance and increase its risk-adjusted returns.

We recommend to read The State of Bitcoin 2020 report prepared by the well-known crypto research firm Delphi Digital to learn more about Bitcoin unique investment characteristics. Delphi Digital team believes that Bitcoin is an extremely attractive alternative to consider in the context of a multi-asset portfolio aiming to maximize risk-adjusted returns. Delphi Digital’s vision largely resonates with our conviction that Bitcoin as a new alternative asset class can efficiently diversify traditional investment portfolio.

INVESTMENT ADVISORS AND BITCOIN MARKET

INVESTMENT ADVISORS AND BITCOIN MARKET

Why Investment Advisors in the Bitcoin Market are Needed


https://preview.redd.it/jc7wj6lgfep51.jpg?width=700&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=49a9b51a664cb288744da074ef17ecfa76cb8de1
Retail investors who are seeking to buy Bitcoin face challenges such as undeveloped crypto market infrastructure and complexity of the blockchain technology. They typically are not able to define a proper investment strategy and the optimal portfolio allocation to the new asset class. Therefore, they need professional assistance in making informed investment decisions.
Registered Investment Advisors (RIAs) are professional investment consultants who advise individuals and institutions about investment decisions and manage their investment portfolios. Investment advisors typically charge a management fee of ~1% of Assets Under Management (AUM). Online robo advisors provide their services online and charge a management fee of ~0.25% of AUM.

Investment Advisors in a Waiting Mode When It Comes to Investing in Crypto


https://preview.redd.it/g5ambuzifep51.jpg?width=512&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=f38cc37bfd05efa0a1f86ceee37242899e986e87
Registered investment advisors (RIAs) are still hesitant to enter the crypto market because of the lack of clear regulations and reliable valuation models. In addition, investment advisors still do not have sufficient knowledge of the crypto market infrastructure and basic blockchain expertise to explain their clients how digital assets such as Bitcoin work and the pros and cons of purchasing them.
The majority of investment advisors in the United States, including online robo advisors, such as Betterment and Wealthfront, still do not provide investment recommendations in the digital assets space. Besides regulatory uncertainty, registered investment advisors currently do not provide investment advice in the digital assets space because the crypto market is highly volatile, inefficient, and exposed to market manipulation.
These issues are common for new asset classes and we believe that crypto market will become more efficient, transparent, and regulated, in the next few years. Finally, registered investment advisors are waiting for regulated and liquid investment products in the digital assets space, such as Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs). These financial instruments are still not available and waiting for the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approval.

Future of Investment Advisory Services in the Digital Assets Space


https://preview.redd.it/xtg0jk7pfep51.jpg?width=942&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=8103bc85e01e517cd0810aa78b6e8026ec937476
We assume that in the next couple of years financial advisors will be forced to understand Bitcoin and other digital assets. This will happen because investors are always looking for uncorrelated asset classes to diversify their investment portfolios. At the same time, new financial instruments linked to Bitcoin and other crypto assets’ performance already move further into the mainstream.
We believe that there will be a significant demand for financial advisors who are well versed in the digital assets space and who can help clients to safely navigate the complexities of investing in this exponentially growing market.

https://preview.redd.it/jghut5irfep51.jpg?width=810&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=fc29d0c296df571688742f4b3c0d02820d424fd9
Besides traditional investment advisors (RIAs), online robo advisors will be forced to enter this rapidly growing market as the demand for investments in the digital assets space is growing exponentially. Institutional and individual investors are willing to invest in Bitcoin and other crypto assets because of the portfolio diversification benefits and high potential investment return.
Alternative asset classes have been always an important component of the balanced investment portfolio. Importantly, digital assets such as Bitcoin can serve not only as an alternative investment but also as a digital store of value, which adds additional value to investing in this new asset class.

HOW INSTITUTIONS INVEST IN BITCOIN

HOW INSTITUTIONS INVEST IN BITCOIN

Why Institutions Invest in Bitcoin


https://preview.redd.it/vs9skcucdep51.jpg?width=960&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ef2a99d9a6e5aa67bd68294cc0fff429bd9dde08
Institutional investors typically have strict requirements in terms of risk management and compliance with applicable securities laws and regulations. They usually allocate only a small part of their investment portfolio to new asset classes such as Bitcoin, primarily with the purpose of investment portfolio diversification. Currently, institutions can either buy Bitcoin directly or get indirect exposure through available Bitcoin investment products. Institutional investors typically have direct exposure to Bitcoin using cryptocurrency exchanges and OTC trading desks.

Institutional Exposure to Bitcoin


https://preview.redd.it/n790vo6fdep51.jpg?width=960&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=0f16172602bedf1446071516277f9dab9e48139a
Many institutional investors still do not have exposure to Bitcoin because of the regulatory uncertainty, lack of reliable valuation models, and high market risks. At the same time, institutions are interested in allocating capital to Bitcoin because it’s not highly correlated with traditional asset classes and has generated outstanding historical return. Institutional investors typically do not have in-house expertise in the Bitcoin market and prefer to have indirect exposure to Bitcoin using currently available investment products, such as Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) and crypto hedge funds.

Institutional Demand for Bitcoin


https://preview.redd.it/5s4ry32idep51.png?width=673&format=png&auto=webp&s=9c8885104377d9ed4f79a12b0f67efe1f292e6a8
Genesis, one of the largest Bitcoin lender and OTC liquidity provider, has issued Q2 2020 report where crypto market trends are discussed. Based on this report, the institutional demand and participation in the crypto space is growing substantially. Here is Genesis’s statistics for Quarter 2 2020: $2.2B in crypto loans has been originated. For comparison, this is a 324% increase in loan originations from the same quarter last year. Genesis had $1.42B total active crypto loans as of June 2020. $5.25B of spot volume has been traded through their OTC desk. $400M derivatives volume traded since June 1, 2020.

Conservative Investors Allocate Capital to Bitcoin

Coinbase, the largest American cryptocurrency exchange, mentioned in its H1 2020 Report that today, many large and conservative institutional investors are allocating capital to digital assets to build direct positions. Among those institutions are leading university endowments, traditional multi-strategy hedge funds, venture firms, and large family offices.

Over 60% of institutional investors surveyed by Fidelity Digital Assets have purchased digital assets directly. Over 20% of the U.S. institutional investors have invested in digital assets using derivative products such as futures. For example, Chicago-based CME Group offers Bitcoin futures and options to institutional investors who need either get exposure to Bitcoin through derivative products or hedge their investment risks.

Demand for New Bitcoin Investment Products

Besides these Bitcoin investment instruments, we think that first Bitcoin ETF product might be approved by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the near future, which would be a huge milestone for the Bitcoin investment infrastructure development. Currently, the inefficiency of the Bitcoin market, lack of reliable Bitcoin valuation models, and Bitcoin market manipulation are among the major concerns of the regulator.

HOW INDIVIDUALS INVEST IN BITCOIN

HOW INDIVIDUALS INVEST IN BITCOIN

Why Individuals Face Investment Risks When Investing in the Bitcoin Market


https://preview.redd.it/f49awic2dep51.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=cb17705025670123fdd792d219a14e1b39d827a9
There are several options available to individual investors who are seeking exposure to Bitcoin. Individuals usually buy Bitcoin with a credit or debit card, using online fiat to crypto services and cryptocurrency exchanges such as Coinbase and Binance. Based on our observations, individuals invest in Bitcoin mostly because of speculative expectations and cannot always properly manage the inherent investment risk.
Retail investors who are seeking to buy Bitcoin face challenges such as undeveloped crypto market infrastructure and complexity of the blockchain technology. They typically are not able to define a proper investment strategy and the optimal portfolio allocation to the new asset class. Therefore, they need professional assistance in making informed investment decisions.

Financial Professionals in the Bitcoin Market


https://preview.redd.it/kuyi5iz4dep51.jpg?width=810&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c9318ee07ac07e9cec7d78f72f49c207c3ac2d21
Financial advisors are still hesitant to enter the crypto market because of the lack of clear regulations and reliable valuation models. In addition, financial advisors still do not have sufficient knowledge of the crypto market infrastructure and basic blockchain expertise to explain their clients how digital assets such as Bitcoin work and the pros and cons of purchasing them.
Ironically, current securities laws and SEC regulations do not allow individuals to invest in Bitcoin through professional investment managers such as crypto hedge funds. This happens because only “accredited investors” are allowed to invest in private investment funds and they have to meet relatively high minimum networth or income requirements. For example, individual investors need to have net worth of at least $1,000,000 and permanent income at least $200,000 or $300,000 combined income if married, to qualify as “accredited investors”.

What Is Crypto Robo Advisor and How It Works?


https://preview.redd.it/gqv03ymsk7p51.jpg?width=7738&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=28e922414f6a0baa8999a4bc2accc1cf0b9d3eda
Crypto Robo Advisor provides automated recommendation regarding the optimal portfolio allocation to cryptocurrencies and other digital assets. Digital assets are a new alternative asset class that is not correlated with traditional asset classes and therefore can efficiently diversify investment portfolios. New asset classes are rare and powerful and hence may provide high investment return. The most common types of digital assets are cryptocurrencies, utility tokens, stable coins, and security tokens.

What Is Robo Advisor?


https://preview.redd.it/d231gl4xk7p51.jpg?width=1200&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=1c9fb42d083f3e28c9eb1d84658b01cfacf5731d
Robo Advisors are online services that provide automated recommendations regarding the optimal investment portfolio construction. They also help to compose the investment portfolio by providing easy online access to relevant investment products. On top of that, Robo Advisors provide investment management services and typically charge a small management fee. The first robo-advisors, Betterment and Wealthfront were launched back in 2008.

How Robo Advisor Works


https://preview.redd.it/aghwlrw3l7p51.jpg?width=810&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=7fb80da8fd74b9769fa85f5b1c282c943e73248f
Robo Advisor algorithm collects information from potential investors by asking multiple choice questions. The online survey is similar to a traditional investment advisor questionnaire. It contains questions about investment goals, financial situation, and the risk profile of a potential investor. Once all the required information is collected, Robo Advisor provides its investment recommendation.
Robo Advisor is an online service that is available 24/7, unlike traditional investment advisor (RIA). While traditional investment advisors often require high minimum AUM, Robo Advisors typically have low or no minimum capital requirement. Because of the flexible approach to a minimum required AUM and low service fees, Robo Advisors can successfully compete with traditional financial advisors.

Bitcoin Robo Advisor by Digital Finance was created with the purpose of helping investors to better manage their investment risks when allocating capital to Bitcoin, the most secure and largest digital asset by market cap. Bitcoin Robo Advisor helps investors to avoid potential losses when investing in the crypto market, as they typically do not have sufficient investment expertise. Crypto market is still inefficient and exposed to manipulations. Therefore, investing in the digital assets space is typically suitable for institutions and wealthy individuals with a moderate to high risk appetite.

The Future of Crypto Robo Advisors

We assume that more Crypto Robo Advisor services will become available to investors in the near future. The growing presence of Crypto Robo Advisor services would be especially helpful for retail investors as they currently are not able to receive professional investment advice regarding investments in cryptocurrencies, tokens, and other digital assets. Unlike wealthy individuals, they cannot invest in digital assets through private investment offerings such as crypto hedge funds as these investment vehicles designed for accredited investors only and the minimum investment amount is typically $100,000.

Grayscale Bitcoin Trust

More than 80% of institutional investors surveyed by Fidelity Digital Assetsconfirmed they are interested in new investment products, which performance is linked to Bitcoin and other digital assets. The majority of institutions currently have exposure to Bitcoin through Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC) and crypto hedge funds that use passive investment approach, such as Bitwise Bitcoin Fund. These Bitcoin investment products are suitable for investors with relatively high risk tolerance and the medium to long-term investment horizon.

Crypto Hedge Funds


https://preview.redd.it/e5c45hemm7p51.jpg?width=1500&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=d07eaa909dab3699129b30e6649b999c13bc8482
You can learn more about crypto hedge funds and their investment strategies by reading the Crypto Hedge Fund Report prepared by PWC in 2019. Crypto hedge funds typically use the same fee structure as traditional hedge funds. The median fees charged by the crypto hedge funds surveyed by PWC were 2% management fee and a 20% performance fee.
Crypto hedge funds that use active investment approach and algorithmic trading when they invest in Bitcoin typically overperform passive investment vehicles. However, they need to use advanced risk management tools to avoid losses as the Bitcoin market is quite inefficient. Bitcoin market infrastructure is still nascent and driven by speculative interest. Therefore, it’s highly important to use smart hedging techniques and avoid high leverage trading to mitigate potential investment risks.

Bitcoin ETF Products


https://preview.redd.it/y4s1ng5pm7p51.jpg?width=1023&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=4e2b4638eb680d0e5d0b53c8b8a465f6a35ea547
We believe that Bitcoin market infrastructure will become more developed over time. The Bitcoin market will become more efficient and regulated similar to traditional financial markets. Consequently, more Bitcoin based products such as Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) will become available to institutional and individual investors. We think that the approval by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of the first Bitcoin ETF will become an important milestone in the Bitcoin market development and will trigger further Bitcoin price appreciation.

WHAT IS BITCOIN SAVINGS ACCOUNT?

WHAT IS BITCOIN SAVINGS ACCOUNT?

Why to Use Bitcoin Savings Account?


https://preview.redd.it/p891z049k7p51.jpg?width=800&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=45de0463480b79389a271b8e25ba979a8ebdc855
Bitcoin savings accounts, also known as Bitcoin interest accounts, are already available on the market. They provide a unique opportunity to generate an extra Bitcoin income. Some Bitcoin lending companies such as BlockFi offer up to 6% annual rate to clients who are willing to deposit Bitcoin to a savings account. The interest rate can be compounded and paid monthly, directly to the Bitcoin savings account. We recommend to review and compare financial terms of different Bitcoin companies. This will help you to find the most suitable Bitcoin savings product.

How Bitcoin Savings Account Works?


https://preview.redd.it/rsc8wuabk7p51.jpg?width=700&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=3dae6a67f055772184f675a273b015a9fe4cf41d
Bitcoin savings account as a financial product is becoming more popular among Bitcoin holders. Similar to savings accounts in the traditional banking system, Bitcoin savings accounts allow their holders to not only preserve their Bitcoin holdings but also to earn Bitcoin interest. Indeed, this financial arrangement is convenient not only because it allows to generate up to 6% of extra income but also because Bitcoin lending companies such as BlockFi have institutional level resources to secure your Bitcoin holdings. That being said, you do not have to worry about the safety of your investment as Bitcoin lending companies usually store their Bitcoin reserves with a regulated custodian.

Bitcoin Savings Account as an Alternative to Bitcoin Wallet


https://preview.redd.it/vu1flt2dk7p51.jpg?width=1440&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=94a4b60d29c071465d8b9d904a55e47cc3a0a76b
The majority of Bitcoin holders currently store their Bitcoin in hardware and software Bitcoin wallets. For the sake of simplicity, Bitcoin wallet accounts can be compared to traditional checking accounts. On the other hand, Bitcoin savings accounts more resemble high-yield traditional saving accounts.
Why deposit Bitcoin to the Bitcoin savings account? Well, a reputable Bitcoin lending company such as BlockFi can not only securely store your Bitcoin holdings but also pay you a high annual interest rate. We believe that over time Bitcoin interest accounts will become more widespread as a savings tool for Bitcoin holders. More companies will be providing a bundle of Bitcoin savings, Bitcoin lending, and Bitcoin custody services. This will be similar to a traditional financial market where banks provide such services with fiat currency.

How to Securely Store Bitcoin


https://preview.redd.it/nmajb5k9t4p51.jpg?width=897&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=fddbf2b60270672dbefb7a74c65b468ee764489a
Currently, Bitcoin investors usually store their Bitcoin holdings in cold or hot wallets. Cold wallets are usually hardware flash drives such as Ledger or Trezor wallets. which are not accessible from the Internet. Hot wallets, such as Electrum, are software wallets that are connected to Internet. Those investors who use “Buy and Hold” passive investment approach need to ensure a high level of security of their Bitcoin holdings. However, while holding Bitcoin in a crypto wallet provides certain level of security, it does not help investors to generate a passive income on their Bitcoin holdings.

Alternatively, you can deposit your Bitcoin to a secure Bitcoin interest account and receive up to 6% annually.

Institutional Demand for Bitcoin


https://preview.redd.it/nsmtkrxxl7p51.jpg?width=960&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=844c38ee6fe745080a57358fc0e50454d47bdc66
Bitcoin challenges modern monetary theory and provides exciting investment opportunities, helping investors build more efficient and diversified portfolios with higher risk-adjusted returns. The institutional demand for Bitcoin is increasing significantly as the market infrastructure matures and new Bitcoin investment products are becoming available. We expect that more institutions will start investing in Bitcoin in the next few years to diversify their investment portfolios and hedge inflation risks, especially during the economic downturn.

https://preview.redd.it/ccewo701m7p51.jpg?width=1200&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=700591e480b0149d3c6256fe09ea58ea7b2f963d
Fidelity Investments, one of the largest asset managers in the world, is building Bitcoin custody and trading platform for institutional clients. It has also filed a Regulation D exemption with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to launch a Bitcoin fund for accredited investors. CME Grouphas been offering Bitcoin futures since December 2017 and recently launched Bitcoin options, both of them cash-settled. Multi-billion-dollar hedge funds, largest endowments, and a few U.S. pension funds have already invested in the blockchain space. This will likely trigger a chain reaction among other institutions.

Institutional Exposure to Bitcoin

Based on the Fidelity Digital Assets research conducted in 2020, more than 35% of the U.S. and European institutional investors have already invested in digital assets. 25% of surveyed institutions have exposure to Bitcoin, the largest by market cap and the most secure and liquid digital asset available on the market. Institutional investors in the United States and Europe are willing to invest in digital assets because they are not correlated to traditional asset classes such as bonds and stocks and may provide high investment return.

RISKS OF BITCOIN INTEREST ACCOUNTS

RISKS OF BITCOIN INTEREST ACCOUNTS

Counterparty Risk


https://preview.redd.it/u296dripgep51.jpg?width=500&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=6c7c39113a57ba759149842d254ebee9bc518efc
The lack of regulatory clarity and oversight makes Bitcoin lending market less transparent and more exposed to compliance and regulatory risks. Bitcoin is not considered as a fiat currency or a security and hence is not strictly regulated by the U.S. government agencies as other asset classes. While Bitcoin lending companies use advanced risk management policies to mitigate potential losses, there are still non-zero risks of losing your Bitcoin capital. You can mitigate potential risks by depositing your Bitcoin with the largest and most reliable companies such as BlockFi.
Based on our research, the most significant risk in this rapidly growing space is a counterparty risk. Your Bitcoin interest account is not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) as a savings account and there are still no regulatory guidelines that require Bitcoin lending companies to insure Bitcoin interest accounts. You can potentially lose your Bitcoin holdings in case of the Bitcoin lending company default, fraud, or mismanagement. We advise you to do a thorough research about the Bitcoin lending company and its management, before depositing your funds.

Investment Risk


https://preview.redd.it/tjympdtrgep51.jpg?width=500&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=2b834395c9b8b82381c6b72cfd15022320c39454
Besides counterparty risks, it’s always important to remember about investment risks. Bitcoin is a relatively new asset class and the Bitcoin market is not efficient and highly volatile. It’s possible that you will not earn any USD income even when holding your Bitcoin in an interest account. This may happen during the bear market conditions or because of a short-term Bitcoin price decline, depending on the specific term of your Bitcoin interest account allocation.
We assume that a long-term exposure to Bitcoin is a more preferable option for retail investors who do not have substantial investment expertise. Long-term exposure to Bitcoin can mitigate investment risks related to the short-term and medium-term volatility of the Bitcoin market. Most importantly, each investor needs to clearly understand its investment goals, investment horizon, and risk tolerance, before investing in the Bitcoin market. Bitcoin market is exposed to manipulation and Bitcoin is still a speculative asset class.

US digital dollar coming soon? Chainlink, Swift, Federal Reserve, ISO20222, and The Clearing House serving as pieces of the puzzle.

This is my first Reddit thread, so please feel free to contribute your thoughts.
I believe the US digital dollar will be making its debut very soon, which could very well likely be the next One World Currency. I've included a timeline of public releases/announcements that fall in line with my theory. Bear with me, there are lot of moving parts.... There may be some details or insights missing so please feel free to enlighten. I believe this will, in time, lead to a New World Order with one global currency. I would like to be proven wrong.
First things first, there are 3 big players: The Federal Reserve, The Clearing House, and SWIFT with ISO20222 system.
Who is The Clearing House group? Conglomerate of many LARGE banks. Source: https://www.theclearinghouse.org/about/owner-banks
What is CHIPS? The Clearing House Interbank Payments System (CHIPS) is an electronic payments system that transfers funds and settles transactions in U.S. dollars. CHIPS enables banks to transfer and settle international payments more quickly by replacing official bank checks with electronic bookkeeping entries. As of January 2002, CHIPS had 59 members, including large U.S. banks and U.S. branches of foreign banks. Source: https://www.newyorkfed.org/aboutthefed/fedpoint/fed36.html
What is ISO20222? From Swift itself, "ISO 20022 is an emerging global and open standard for payments messaging. It creates a common language and model for payments data across the globe."Source: https://www.swift.com/standards/about-iso-20022

July 19 2018, Assocation of Financial Professionals confirms above with article: NY Fed creates group to consider adopting ISO20222: "In 2012, the New York Fed formed a stakeholder group to assess the value in adopting ISO 20022. This led to the 2015 Strategies for Improving the Payment System paper, in which the Fed recommended that the U.S. develop a strategy for adopting the standard. Since that time, the Fed and The Clearing House (TCH) have worked together on plans to adopt ISO 20022 for Fedwire and CHIPS. While they have each opted to implement the standard separately, the Fed and TCH plan to align the implementation of the new format on Fedwire and CHIPS."
