What Is A Qualified Crypto Custodian?

what is a qualified crypto custodian?

Security risks, hacking and cyber attacks, market volatility and regulatory risk make buying and selling cryptocurrencies stressful to say the least. Perhaps more stressful is the challenge of securely storing crypto assets for safe-keeping… A process known as “crypto custody”. However, online crypto financial services providers, such as Coinbase, Circle and BitGo are starting to offer secure crypto custodian solutions. These cryptocurrency platforms want to be the default partner banking for storing digital assets, such as Bitcoins and new asset backed tokens. The collective aim is to convince institutional “hodlers” to…

Maybe you’re in luck because four leaf clovers are so scarce… Indeed, the chances of finding a four leaf clover are around 5000 to 1. However, five leaf clovers are more scarce… If you found a five leaf clover you should be even more proud because the chances of finding a five leaf clover are around 1 in 25,000!

Is There Such A Thing As A Crypto P/E Ratio?

While it is in theory possible for cryptocurrencies, such as smart contracts, to have earnings, none do as of yet. As such, there is no equivalent “P/E ratio” for cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin.

P/E ratio can be calculated by dividing the price of a share of stock…

What is a Good P/E Ratio for a Stock?

The price to earnings ratio, or P/E ratio, is a common valuation method for determining whether a stock is overvalued or undervalued. Price to earnings ratio indicates the amount of money per share an investor is willing to pay today for a dollar of future earnings. For instance, if Amazon was selling for $18.00 per share today and the company had $1.00 of earnings per share over the prior year, it would be trading at a P/E of 18. This means an investor would be willing to pay 18 x…

What is 0.001 Bitcoin called?

Let’s say you have 0.00929204 Litecoin and you want to convert it to 0.000099 Bitcoin. Unfortunately, it seems to be hard to do this for free. If you use Coinbase, you convert Litecoin to Bitcoin but only if you log into Coinbase, then switch over to Coinbase Pro and transfer your Litecoin to Bitcoin. But there seems to be a minimum purchase of Bitcoin on Coinbase Pro in the amount of 0.001 Bitcoin. So you might have to buy more Litecoin then convert it all to Bitcoin, which seems like a…

Crypto “Community”… A Veiled Term for Bureaucracy?

//RANT// The term “community” is tossed around in cryptocurrency and token discussions constantly. Community references “social benefits” harkening a better world where somehow a hybrid social capitalism run by smart contracts takes over. In other words, Utopia. Give me a break. “Community” is really just a veiled term for what it really is… Bureaucracy. People trying to exert control anyway they can to further their own personal agenda. Whatever that hidden personal agenda may be, it ultimately leads to a desire to make money from crypto. So please. Just say…
