In the past, while others have been tooting trumpets and waving articles around saying, “Coinbase adding XRP soon!”, we’ve always aired on side of caution, like in this previous article.

And again, over the past 24hrs, people are tooting those trumpets once again, “XRP is Coming to Coinbase” they cry. Pleaseeee.

So, what’s the deal with the past 24hrs?

Coinbase Market Power Abuse?

It all came about after a Twitter user asks Finra;

This, wouldn’t maybe got 1 or 2 likes or retweets by XRP fan boys, but FINRA helped this become big news;

Due to this reply by FINRA, there are hilarious articles out there about Coinbase now being in “hot water” (AHAHAHAHA)! Guys, they simply acknowledged his tweet. Consider it a read receipt for an email.

Is it manipulation?

Ok, enough scoffing at the articles written by petulant XRP fan boys. So, is there something in it when it comes to manipulation? Well, it’s no secret that there are individuals in Coinbase that take a dislike to Coinbase *cough* CEO Armstrong *cough*;

{tweet has since been deleted}

And of course, being heavily invested in BTC, I suppose alt. coins are a bit of a distraction, aren’t they?

Furthermore, Brian has also posted in the past (and so to have Coinbase) asking for people to let them know what they’d like to see added next;

And when he doesn’t get the answer he wants, he ‘jokes’ about what will be added and dismisses it as fixed by looks of follow up replies;

Will FINRA do anything?

Don’t count on it. However, I find it amusing that this comes months after it emerged that Ripple Labs offered Coinbase a HUGE incentive to list XRP and just yesterday, Coinbase made us all aware they can now list securities. Imagine, is FINRA forced Coinbase to add XRP (especially no longer having excuse of securities), and they had to, without any Ripple Labs incentives. I’d personally love that, being a 1/2 XRP fan boy. 😉

New ATH Bull Run Incoming Due To NASDAQ Crypto Listings!?

In crypto land, there’s always another short straw that people cling on to, which gets mixed in, like cement, with a multitude of FUD and positivity based on false hope. Now, here’s the next big one, but unlike other news outlets, we don’t toot the bul run trumpet every week (in fact, we never do); until now. We don’t think we will see a bull run until October earliest for BTC (note we talk about BTC, as that’s still the king influencer), but may not come until late January t0 late April. IF if doesn’t come by then, we’ll be quite disappointed.

Anyway, to the news at hand – we believe it will be a Gemini NASDAQ listing of the top cryptos that will cause the next bull run. In a way, it’s a shame. It’s a shame as it’s crypto having a price increase due to NASDAQ listings, thus, it’s speculative, where, what we really want to see, if a bull run for individual cryptos, based on the UTILITY of the coin/token.

We’re not going to go in to the ins and outs of where NASDAQ could potential announce this, but we expect it to come somewhere to go live later 2018, or early to mid-2019. What this will mean is, we expect the next bull run to be the start of a new all time high bull run. HOWEVER; some coins are going to find the bull run not quite working in their favour.

While the top 5 to 10 coins (by market cap) to be added to any NASDAQ cryptocurrency listing service, those that aren’t added (the vast majority), are going to find it tough going, leaving many a crypto investor disappointed. Not all is lost. We believe the entire market will gain positive traction, but any NASDAQ listing will lend more authority, awareness and make investing in crypto go truly mainstream.

People believe the bubble has already burst, like the .com era. We don’t believe that’s happened yet – we haven’t even gained mass appeal yet.
