Jun 03: Crypto is not for the faint-hearted
Welcome to the world of volatility. Crypto never sleeps. Bitcoin got whipsaw squeezing shorts to trade above $10,400 on Monday only to get smashed down to $9,300 with fresh longs capitulated (see chart below).
Bitmain Launches Cheaper Mining Machines After Bitcoin Halving and Losing Market Share to MicroBT
Bitmain has launched a cheaper version of a Bitcoin mining machine, Antminer T19, compared to its more pricy predecessor Antminer S19. Bitmain has been losing its market share to its rival, MicroBT, which launched its M30S++ Bitcoin miner in April this year. The Antminer T19 has a hashrate/ mining power of 84 terahash per second (TH/s), and power efficiency of 37.5 joules per terahash (J/TH). The price of this new mining machine is around $1750, while the S19 costs around $1785.
June 1: Sell in May Postponed to Sell in June?
For the past few weeks, there have been quite a bit of talk/shill/promoting of ETH and I think largely driven by a combination of factors that I've described earlier (i.e. growing daily active addresses, more than 60 bil gas being used, $7bn in stablecoins and Greyscale's ETH demand). Other protocol tokens such as Cardano, Zilliqa and NEO also followed the ETH move, albeit less exaggerated.
May 31: Everyone Wants to be the Broker in Crypto
BTC has managed to get into my sell zone with ETH clearly leading the charts with the triangle breakout getting quite a few technical guys excited. Contrary to this spike, 20k+ ETH Dec 120 puts traded at $8.4 yesterday. So who's gonna be right?
When China Yuan Sneezes, Bitcoin Wears a Mask
My thesis continues to be that larger accounts (i.e. whales who own > 1000 BTC) have started to liquidate (which I shared yesterday that this number have continued to decline for the past two weeks), and potentially chase/re-allocate into equities.
May 26: It's Always Been There
Strategy today? With SPX e-mini futures now just shy of 20 points from 3,000 level and the highest it's traded since the March 23 crash, I expect BTC to follow. Expectedly, this recent sell off has been mostly triggered by large players (i.e. whales) trimming their positions.
May 25: Negative Rates Eating the World (but not Crypto)
Like Chinese ADRs in the US, it's a sea of red for crypto with Bitcoin down more than 5% in the past 48 hours as it fails to hold above 9k & 8.8k where stops got triggered. No news or catalyst but the lack of bulls to follow through was evident through the volume, and perhaps over this long weekend that the usual buyers haven't been able to pile onto their longs.

Crypto Miners Allege Chinese Bitcoin Mining Giant Delivered "Defective" Product
