1/ BTIG just dropped a research report on $HXRO

πŸ”‘= Highlight

2/ Dan Gunsberg and Rob Levy in 2018 sought to combine their traditional finance (TradFi) knowledge with a decentralized finance (DeFi) framework to create a gamified binary futures platform that would provide an easy on-ramp to the cryptocurrency space for retail investors.
3/ The result of their efforts was the launch in January 2019 of Hxro a platform that brought together digital currency trading with skill-based social gaming while introducing the HXRO token.
4/ Now the team are working on the next step in Hxro’s evolution: the Hxro Network, a decentralized liquidity network being built on the Solana blockchain that will provide the infrastructure for a fully functional decentralized exchange for vanilla, exotic & pari-mutuel options
5/ While the most widely used DeFi applications have been focused on peer-to-peer lending and borrowing, some observers have pegged options as the next major frontier for decentralized finance.
6/ Crypto options markets, while nascent, have
been growing at an exponential rate. Derebit (Private), the leading options trading platform for cryptocurrencies, during 1Q21 posted over $2bn in daily bitcoin options volume.
7/ At the same time, a robust, decentralized options trading solution has yet to materialize despite various attempts, with projects running into various roadblocks
8/ Gunsberg and Levy sought a means through which they could build a workable solution to address them. They found it with the Solana blockchain, an Ethereum alternative capable of faster transactions and greater
scalability, which they viewed as the only distributed ledger with
9/ the quality, speed and level of throughput that the Hxro Network would need to avoid the problems
that had impeded other efforts to build DeFi options platforms. Hxro on February 5 announced its collaboration with Solana.
πŸ”‘10/ To ensure that Hxro Network will provide sufficient liquidity to power options trading for institutional investors at macro funds & large hedge funds, Gunsberg & Levy are looking beyond the DeFi approach embodied in the AMMs & allowing TradFi market makers onto the network.
πŸ”‘11/ Hxro’s collaboration on TixWix with FTX CEO Sam Bankman-Fried had led to further cooperation. Hxro Network’s developers have been composing with Serum, the Solana-based derivatives exchange (DEX) founded by Bankman-Fried, to access such vital pieces of architecture.
πŸ”‘12 / as on-chain central limit order books. Hxro is also poised to tap Serum for spot and (eventually) perpetual swap liquidity for both the protocol and the delta hedging needs of its users.
πŸ”‘13 / Gunsberg and Levy noted that 100% of the fees generated by the network would accrue to staked HXRO token holders and specialized node operators, as well as network treasury and developer pools needed to support its ecosystem.
πŸ”‘πŸ”‘πŸ”‘ 14/ $HXRO Network is expected to go live on the Solana mainnet in early July.

FUD is a hell of a drug. But for my followers some transparency on my #Bitcoin position may help.

I have been adding since the Jan pullback. My average is 44k. When I look at this chart its in the accumulation zone. But... technically, we have not yet capitulated.
The capitulation will be signified by a large volume spike and potential big drop past this zone. This should be followed by a very large bid. See 11th Jan and 23rd Feb.

Healthy is the wrong word, necessary is more adept.

#Bitcoin does not operate in a vacuum. It's now a macro bet.

With inflation spiking its clear some are projecting rates will rise. This of course kills easy money and hurts #BTC. #Bitcoin getting hit is a reflection of this short term thinking. But on the other hand

Just sifting through my trading notes for 2020. Thought I would share some zingers. Hope this provides some value to you all.

Entry is so important. It literally defines risk reward. Never overpay.

Early Call: Lets talk sports. I think the maximum pressure on sports right now will dramatically change Australian sport as we know it. I think the NRL are likely to lose 25% of clubs and AFL will lose GWS and GC Suns at minimum within next 3 years. I also think both codes will
pivot to a white label streaming model like the NBA. Where they are their own network and on sell rights to multiple pure streaming networks and traditional TV on an adhoc basis. I think both codes get more control of their revenue streams and this is good long term.
I also think players contract structures change dramatically in favour of clubs and the code. Potentially linking the revenue of their in house model to be proportionally distributed to players based on sales. I think that tournament structures will be more prominent such as

You can be a magnificent chart technician and a wonderful fundamental analyst. But if don’t have risk management as your #1 priority. You will go broke. It’s just a matter of time.
You need confidence and self doubt simultaneously.
You need a quick trigger finger and big balls. But you also need to be patient and disciplined.
