    Zengate integrates Chainlink services on Cardano (Knee Bent)


    Another day, another Chainlink integration - this time it’s on one of the only useful protocols on Cardano. ERGO was never a serious option (unless you don’t care about adoption).

    No other Oracle provider is suitable for DeFi. ERGO, PYTH, BAND, API3, etc. all end up at the glue factory eventually.

    Expect to see this more often as all (there’s not much) DeFi TVL gets absorbed by Zengate until other competitors on Cardano also integrate LINK services.

    Not political! How many MAGA into Crypto?

    From a quick glossing over of my friends, my experiences lean to much heavier on the liberal side.

    However, with DT all the sudden being a champion of BTC and now read his son is starting a Trump crypto, it makes for an interesting opportunity, much more than the media stock to me anyway.

    Not looking or wanting any political opinions, just gauging the temperature of how many of you are or would support a TrumpCoin?

    It's quite possibly nothing more than a cash grab but I also see it as something DJT would look at as a "legacy" or at least wealth building, if done correctly.

    Please, really, for the love of all that is holey (1980s Levi's, yes), idgas about your political ideology, at least not here on this.

    Passive income for a minor from a developing country.

    For context, I'm a minor from a developing country who wants to make a bit of money on the side. I don't have a card/bank account and crypto wallets don't need a phone no# or identification so I thought I'd give it a shot. I currently use MetaMask.

    The reason is rather pathetic (compared to the advanced market discussions that go on here), but I'm learning how to code and have been really liking it. So, I want to buy a fancy domain for my personal website.

    I'd only need $10 a year but I'd like to earn that in a few weeks or a month. I've been doing my research, but I came across a few problems.

    • Brave's compatible wallets aren't available in my country.
    • Mining, folding or stuff like honeygain won't work well because I don't have access to a PC 24/7
    • I don't have money to 'invest' so holding or staking isn't really an option.
    • Heard about this 'Moons' thing, but am not funny enough to make good comments.

    Again, I'd like this income to either be 'passive' or 'fun'. I've played Crypto Royale and it seems pretty fun, but I'd like to explore other options too.

    Related posts on this sub are pretty old and stuff seems to have changed a lot (CoinGecko says you can't receive Moons via your Reddit vault?)

    Any advice is greatly appreciated. I don't have a phone but use my house's PC for 2-3hrs a day and use my mother's laptop for study.

    A question about Taxes and what you've done or are doing?

    Hey all,

    I live in the UK and I have sort of ignored Crypto for the past 4 years or so and I got into it back in 2017. I was a noob and I bought and sold bought and sold and didn't really think about it. I made money in crypto coins and then it all crashed and I ended up with less than I put in. So I just kept the money in there in hopes that it would rise again.

    In 2020 I kept an eye on things and as it started going back up I took some of my money back (still below what I put in) and I kept the rest in there.

    I started to look at the potential Tax issues and I don't really understand it so I took a download of all my trades from sites and then I sold everything and transferred the money back to my bank account. A few days later I bought back some of the coins I wanted to start over fresh and I've just left it in there since.

    So my question is what do I do about paying Tax and declaring things? I still have less than I invested and I haven't invested any more as I'm mainly concerned that if I do make any money I'll have to pay a load of money anyway and probably won't end up with that much. So I've just kind of left my money in there for now.

    How to effectively combine patterns and indicators?

    When it comes to trading, candlestick patterns and technical indicators can each provide valuable insights into the market. Candlestick patterns offer visual cues about market trends, while technical indicators provide objective data on price movements. But when used together, they can provide even deeper insights and help traders make better decisions.

    Candlestick patterns are formed by price movements over time and can help traders identify potential opportunities to enter or exit a trade. Technical indicators, on the other hand, use mathematical calculations based on price and/or volume to provide data on market trends.

    Here are some ways traders can combine candlestick patterns and technical indicators:

    1. Confirming Candlestick with Technical Indicators

    When a candlestick pattern forms, traders can use technical indicators to confirm or refute the trend. For example, if a trader sees a head and shoulders candlestick forming, they can use an indicator like the Relative Strength Index (RSI) to confirm that the market is indeed overbought and due for a reversal.

    2. Identifying Trend Strength with Technical Indicators

    Traders can also use technical indicators to identify the strength of a trend. For example, if a trader sees a bullish trend forming, they can use indicators like the Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) or the Average Directional Index (ADX) to determine how strong the trend is and whether it's likely to continue.

    3. Combining Candlestick Patterns and Technical Indicators for Entry and Exit Points
    Traders can also use patterns and technical indicators together to identify potential entry and exit points for a trade. For example, if a trader sees a bullish trend forming(matching low on a picture ), is consistently associated with a downtrend on the daily chart of Tamap Pattern Live (1D timeframe), which is confirmed by the Stochastic Oscillator that has a strong sell scale on a second screenshot.



    In conclusion, by combining patterns and technical indicators, traders can gain a more comprehensive understanding of the market and make more informed decisions about when to buy, sell, or hold a position. However, it's important to remember that no trading strategy is foolproof, and traders should always be prepared for unexpected market movements. But by using these two approaches together, traders can increase their chances of success.

    I bought $1k of the Top 10 Cryptos on January 1st, 2023 (MAY Update/Month 17/+101%)

    EXPERIMENT - Tracking 2023 Top Ten Cryptocurrencies – Month Seventeen - Up +101%

    Find the full blog post with all the tables and graphs here.

    Welcome to your monthly no-shill data dump: Here's the report for the 17th month of the 2023 Top Ten Experiment featuring BTC, ETH, BNB, XRP, BUSD, DOGE, ADA, MATIC, DOT, and LTC.

    SNAPSHOTS ALWAYS TAKEN ON FIRST OF THE MONTH (data below reflects 1 JUNE Snapshot).


    • What's this all about? I purchased $100 of each of Top 10 Cryptos in Jan. 2018, haven't sold or traded, reporting monthly for 6.5 years for your reading pleasure. Did the same in 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, and 2024. Learn more about the history and rules of the Experiments (including why in the world I would include stablecoins) here. Learn more about the features in this year's (2024) Top Ten Experiment here.
    • MAY Highlights: All green or flat month. ETH the monthly victory, BTC in overall lead.
    • The 2023 portfolio is +101% since inception vs. +37% from the S&P500. DCA'ing once a year into Top Ten Cryptos for the last 7 years has produced better returns than if you'd done the same with the S&P 500 over the same time period (+240% vs S&P500's +53% - see below for details).
    • By the end of 2023, The Alongside Crypto Market Index Token (AMKT) had beaten my Top 10 +141% vs. +73%, nearly doubling the ROI of the 2023 Top 10 Experiment.

    Month Seventeen – Up +101%


    The 2023 Top Ten Crypto Index Fund Portfolio is BTC, ETH, BNB, XRP, BUSD, DOGE, ADA, MATIC, DOT, LTC.

    May highlights for the 2023 Top Ten Portfolio:

    • All green or flat month
    • ETH takes the monthly victory
    • Overall: BTC still well ahead followed distantly by ETH in second and BNB in third. MATIC is the only crypto in negative territory.

    May Rankings

    Here’s a look at the movement in the ranks seventeen months into the 2023 Top Ten Index Fund Experiment:


    May Winners and Losers

    May Winners – ETH (+28%) and DOGE (+24%) were the clear winners this month

    May Losers – ADA and XRP didn’t lose any ground, but basically remained flat in May, making them the worst performers of the month

    Overall Update: BTC well ahead followed distantly by ETH in second.  MATIC is in last place.  90% of cryptos in the green. 

    Bitcoin (+308%) is the best performing Top Ten crypto in the 2023 Portfolio, followed by second place ETH (+217%).  The initial $100 invested in BTC seventeen months ago is worth $408 today. 

    90% of the 2023 Top Ten cryptos are in positive territory this year.

    MATIC (-8%) is the worst performer and the only crypto in negative territory.

    Overall return on $1,000 investment since January 1st, 2023:


    The 2023 Top Ten Portfolio ended May up +101%.  The initial $1000 investment on New Year’s Day 2023 is now worth $2,014.

    Here’s a visual summary of year one of the 2023 Top Ten portfolio:


    2023 Top Ten Portfolio vs. The Alongside Crypto Market Index Token (AMKT)

    Last year I ran a friendly competition between The 2023 Top Ten Portfolio and The Alongside Crypto Market Index Token (AMKT).  

    AMKT is an ERC-20 token that represents a cap weighted index of 15 Cryptocurrencies (minus stablecoins) backed 1:1 by the underlying assets represented within the index and completely onchain.  

    Since the index represents approximately 95% of the value within crypto, AMKT was an excellent proxy for the entire cryptocurrency market – exactly what my Top Ten Portfolios have been trying to recreate from the start.  

    Here was the result of that side Experiment:


    Overall winner: The Alongside Crypto Market Index Token (AMKT).  In the end, it really wasn’t close – AMKT took 9 out of 12 monthly victories and held the overall lead throughout 2023, returning +141% vs. my Top Ten’s 73%.

    The value of the AMKT provided by Alongside for the Experiment was donated to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

    Combining the 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, and 2024 Top Ten Crypto Portfolios 

    The 2023 Top Ten is one of seven concurrent experimental portfolios.  Where do we stand if we combine all of the Top Ten Crypto Index Fund Experiments?

    • 2018 Top Ten Experiment: up +23% (total value $1,234)
    • 2019 Top Ten Experiment: up +526% (total value $6,263)
    • 2020 Top Ten Experiment: up +813% (total value $9,130) (best performing portfolio*)*
    • 2021 Top Ten Experiment: up +230% (total value $3,287)
    • 2022 Top Ten Experiment: down -39% (total value $615) (worst performing portfolio*)*
    • 2023 Top Ten Experiment: up +101% (total value $2,014)
    • 2024 Top Ten Experiment: up +24% (total value $1,237)

    Taking the seven portfolios together:

    After a $7,000 total investment in the 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, and 2024 Top Ten Cryptocurrencies, the combined portfolios are worth $23,780. 

    That’s up +240% on the combined portfolios.  

    For context, the peak  for the combined Top Ten Index Fund Experiment Portfolios was November 2021’s all time high of +533%.  

    Here’s the combined monthly ROI since I started tracking the metric in January 2020 for those who do better with visuals:


    In summary: That’s a +240% gain by investing $1k on whichever cryptos happened to be in the Top Ten on January 1st (including stablecoins) for seven straight years.

    Comparison to S&P 500

    I’m also tracking the S&P 500 as part of my Experiment to have a comparison point to traditional markets.


    The S&P 500 is up +37% since January 2023, compared to the Top Ten Crypto portfolio’s +101%.  The initial $1k investment into crypto on New Year’s Day would be worth $1,370 had it been redirected to the S&P.  

    Taking the same invest-$1,000-on-January-1st-of-each-year approach with the S&P 500 that I’ve been documenting through the Top Ten Crypto Experiments, the yields are the following:

    • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2018 = $1,970 today
    • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2019 = $2,110 today
    • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2020 = $1,630 today
    • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2021 = $1,410 today
    • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2022 = $1,110 today
    • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2023 = $1,370 today
    • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2024 = $1,110 today

    Taken together, the results for a similar approach with the S&P: 

    After seven $1,000 investments into an S&P 500 index fund in January 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023, and 2024 my portfolio would be worth $10,710.

    That is up +53% since January 2018 compared to a +240% gain of the combined Top Ten Crypto Experiment Portfolios. 

    The visual below shows a comparison on ROI between a Top Ten Crypto approach and the S&P as per the rules of the Top Ten Crypto Experiments: 



    To the long time followers of the Top Ten Experiments, thank you for sticking around so long. For those just getting into crypto, I hope these reports will help prepare you for the highs and lows that await on your crypto adventures.  Buckle up, go with the flow, think long term, and truly don’t invest what you can’t afford to lose.  Most importantly, try to enjoy the ride.

    A reporting note: I’ll focus on 2024 Top Ten Portfolio reports + one other portfolio on a rotating basis this year, so expect two reports from me per month.  May’s extended report is on the 2023 Top Ten Portfolio, the one you’re reading now.  You can check out the latest 2018 Top Ten2019 Top Ten2020 Top Ten2021 Top Ten, and 2022 Top Ten reports as well.

    Most cost effective way for someone in my situation to buy crypto?

    So I am unable to access coinbase and I am still trying to get access to kraken, so that leaves me with binance.US for now

    Whats the most cost effective way of buying crypto on binance? This is for someone who literally has 0 crypto and needs to link their bank or something

    I know a common method is to link bank to coinbase > deposit USD in exhcnage > convert USD to XLM, LTC, other cheap coins > move XLM/LTC to binance > convert to desired crypto

    First off, is the method above actually the proper way to do this?

    Second, as I mentioned, I am unable to use coinbase right now, so what are my alternatives? crypto.com?

    Solana Labs Debuts Blockchain Loyalty Platform

    Solana Labs has announced the launch of Bond, a platform designed to increase customer engagement through direct customer interactions, digital collectibles, and more. In its publication, the company notes that Bond will provide brands, including non-cryptocurrency brands, with a platform “to create personalized, transparent, and engaging digital experiences that deepen customer connections and foster long-term loyalty.”

    "Today's companies compete fiercely for customer attention and loyalty. Bond helps your brand go beyond mere transactions to turn every interaction into a lasting connection." - We can read on Bond website

    Platform states that it will be able to eliminate the “critical limitations” of modern loyalty programs, namely the loss of connection with the end user if the product is ever resold or given away. The company promises that brands will not be required to have experience with blockchain, as the service will be available through a single application programming interface.

    By using digital product identification, customers can verify the authenticity of a product, and brands can track their items even if they are subsequently resold or given away.

    What is the best "broker" or "platform" for holding long term crypto currency

    Years ago I've used trustable kucoin, coinbase, uphold(which I cannot get into anymore because of authenticator app has changed into something unrecognizable) Binance.us

    I've used all of these and others and now I have $0 worth of crypto I did sell a few Yeats ago when the government was gonna "ban" it......

    Anywho what I'd the most professional app to use, would it be just coinbase with the high fees or something else? I'm in the U.S by the way.

    I also use coinmama back in thwa day, it doesn't seem too bad, I also used robinhood multiple times but I don't like how it's only the "value" of crypto and not crypto currency holding itself I'm a unique wallet.. I just want to hear other people's opinions on what is the best app to use, thank you for your opinions!

    withdrew money from coinbase before but this time when i try to cash out it is grey and says i need to make a deposit?

    when i click cash outit is all grey and says ''Make a deposit to link and verify your bank account. For your safety, only withdrawals to verified bank accounts are permitted.''

    i have withdrew from coinbase via the same bank account before in febuary, i have also deposited 10 GBP 2 hours ago to verify it.

    so far nothing has changed. coinbase live chat support wasnt very helpful and said my bank card is verified but my bank account isnt even though i have withdrew to the same bank account before?

    do i have to wait until that 10 gbp is not pending in my bank anymore before it gets verified?

    its quite a large sum of money which is stressing me out not being in my bank.
