Cryptocurrency Expert Ian King Discusses Cryptomania With Investors

Cryptomania has become a worldwide phenomena. New cryptocurrencies are popping up every day and so are new crypto millionaires. Exchanges where the cryptos are traded have had to halt signing up new customers because of infrastructure overload.

Other crypto trading outlets have shutdown after being overwhelmed by user and investor traffic. Coinbase’s android application has surpassed Youtube as the most downloaded and installed software tool. Governments around the globe are scrambling to find some means to regulate this new class of money that bypasses their citizens’ reliance on the state’s printed currencies.

Former mortgage bond trader for Salamon Brothers and hedge fund trader for Peahi Capital, Ian King is assisting crypto investors with understanding the market and finding good investments within the crypto market.

The new cryptocurrencies editor for Banyan Hill Publishing studied psychology in college and traded dot com stocks in his dorm room. These two experiences melded into what would become a very exciting career in the financial industry for Ian King. Read more about Ian King at banyanhill.com

King shares that he was exposed to the cryptocurrency world by libertarian-minded and cryptography expert friends of his who were excited about the prospects of the new financial tool that would allow secure peer to peer asset exchanges, eliminating the need for a middle man and the associated fees.

He studied the emerging digital trading technology and eventually formed his own web-based firm teaching individuals how to evaluate and buy and sell bitcoin, Litecoin, Ripple and other cryptocurrencies.

Observing that technological advances leading to cryptos have been the result of innovations in 10 year cycles, King notes that mainframe computers in the 1970s introduced processing of bulk data. In the 1980s, personal computers brought data processing capability to private individuals. The 1990s saw the rise of shared access to information throughout the internet. Social media provided the framework for sharing information in targeted ways in the 2000s. And, building upon that, the infrastructure was ready for the release of cryptocurrencies, allowing the global exchange of digital assets in the 2010s.

Ian King comments on Malcolm Gladwell’s “tipping point,” the critical stage when market momentum explodes following the crossing of a social adoption threshold when a boiling point in a new idea, product or trend is reached, causing it to spread like wildfire. He shares that this point was reached for bitcoin in 2017, pushing the market capitalization of bitcoin from $18 billion at the beginning of that year to over $600 million at the end of it.

He points out differences in this cycle which suggest that this trend will be different than previous financial bubbles. For instance, in the crypto market, Wall Street arrived after private investors had built momentum and dominated the market.

This in addition to other market factors, such as the listing of bitcoin futures by the CBOE and CME exchanges suggests that there is still a lot of growth potential to be had in the cryptocurrency markets in 2018 and beyond.  For more updates, visit:https://stocktwits.com/IanKing

TAMPA BAY SPORTS

First place Tampa Bay Lightning are showing the Canadians that they are a force to be reckoned with. Tamp Bay is a member of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern conference. More commonly known as the BOLTS, a name inspired by Phil Esposito.

Esposito is best known from his days as a Canadian broadcaster. He was also a coach, a player, and former professional ice hockey executive. He is a respected member of the Hockey Hall of Fame. Esposito’s successes included playing 18 seasons in the National Hockey League for the Chicago Black Hawks, Boston Bruins and New York Rangers. Hockey News

The name came as a suggestion when during the summer months in Tampa the storms produce Strong Lightning Bolts in the sky. Hence the name “The Bolts” or Tampa Bay Lightning was born.

Billionaire Jeffrey Vinik, the owner of the Tampa Bay Lightning who purchased the brand almost a decade ago, had a good feeling about this team from the very start. Tampa has produced so many great sports teams. As an financial analyst, Vinik knew there was much growth potential demographically in the Tampa area.

This will be another exciting year for the Bolts as they travel to Canada in Winnipeg Winnipeg Manitoba to face off with the Central division leaders the Winnipeg Jets.

The Bolts and the Jets played very well going into the weekends All Star break. The Tampa Bay Lightning are on a three game winning streak as the Winnipeg jets are now three out of four games win. Sports

This weekend all eyes will be on the Super Bowl and Tom Brady. As Minnesota hosts the 52nd Super Bowl this Sunday. Good luck to the Philadelphia Eagles and to the New England Patriots. May the best team win.

SUPER BOWL 52

I am personally a Hockey aficionado and admit that I too will be eating wings and pizza and drinking beer and rooting for one of the teams this Sunday. Which team, I have no favorite. I am on the bandwagon so to speak. Maybe one day the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will host a Super Bowl or win it! The fun and the excitement is part of the adventure.

After the Super Bowl is over, there are still a few months of great hockey coming. Go Bolts! Make some Lightning happen!

Taking a Look at Nick Vertucci as an Investor

Nick Vertucci is a self-made millionaire. Raised by a single mom who did her best to support her family after his dad passed away, Nick became homeless as soon as he entered adulthood. He would spend a few years in the lowest point in his life before beginning his own business and completely turning his life around.

Nick Vertucci’s first business was selling computer parts. This was very lucrative for him, and it was during this time that he married his wife and became the adoring father of three beautiful baby girls. However, like all good stories, Nick Vertucci’s story would soon hit another low.

Nick was broke again. Although he and his family had been living comfortably with the wealth that his computer business had provided them, Nick had never learned how to maintain. Because he never knew to properly invest his money, Nick Vertucci struggled for the next year and a half, living on little to no income and falling deeply into debt.

Nick Vertucci’s story reached a climax after lacking money for 18 months and losing everything but his home. As the saying goes, “anything worth having is worth working for.” This is true for Nick, who was willing to sacrifice his weekend to attend a workshop that his friend had invited him to.

Nick Vertucci recalls attending the workshop as being the best decision of his life. The workshop inspired Nick and gave him new hope; he now knew without a doubt that he was going to become debt-free.

After 10 years of blood, sweat, and tears, Nick Vertucci had finally developed a system that worked. This system was simple in helping him earn money in real estate, and he was determined to share it with others.

Vertucci waited until he had officially become a millionaire using his system before introducing it to the world. Becoming a millionaire gave him clout and showed others that his system is credible.

Nick Vertucci has forever changed his family’s financial legacy and believes that there are many people who want to do well and have the drive to do well but simply lack the skills. Nick is here to provide those skills to anyone who needs them.

Snapchat Video Gets Teacher Fired

A video posted to Snapchat has resulted in the dismissal of a Tampa area school district employee. In addition to the Sarasota High School teacher who has lost her job, another employee has been given new duties. The other employee was an assistant principal who hosted a party where the video was taken. It’s all because of what the employee appears to be doing in a Snapchat video.

The school district received a copy of the video and began an investigation that led to the dismissal and reassignment of duties. The video shows an adult woman grinding with what appears to be a teenage boy. The boy didn’t attend the school where the woman teaches. Instead, he attends a nearby high school. School officials say that’s inappropriate enough to warrant a dismissal. The school says that there was too much contact between the adult and the minor to be professional conduct for an educator. The woman in the video was the registrar at a Tampa-area high school.

It all began when an assistant principal hosted a birthday party at her home. The teenager in question said that he didn’t even know who the other person in the video was. He said that he didn’t know that she was a school employee. The boy said that he was intoxicated at the time of the party. He said he got the party information from Snapchat and even arrived at the party via Uber.

School district officials say that the party host is no longer assigned to duties that involve working with students. They say the teacher in the video had only been with the school district since August. They chose to terminate her employment. The assistant principal has been working for the school since 2014.

The local sheriff’s office says that they’ve conducted an investigation. They say that the teen’s mother doesn’t want to press charges. They say that they don’t even plan to submit a police report for potential charges. They consider the matter closed.

The school district says that they’re continuing to conduct an internal investigation. They say that they haven’t finished the investigation yet. Until that happens, they say they aren’t sure if additional action is warranted. They say if it is, they’ll be sure to do what’s best for the school district and for all of their students.

The Auto Racing Circuit Gears Up For Florida Event

The beautiful woman in the green driving suit who drives the lime green racing car is gearing up for the notorious Daytona 500, one of Florida’s most exciting sporting events. The female race driver took the racing industry by storm about six years ago as a premier woman driver in a predominately male sport. She opened a lot of eyes to the fact that she was significant player in the racing game. She has held her own to this date, giving fans some very outstanding, and expert performances on the track. Danica Patrick and her GoDaddy car are both polished, and ready to turn heads. Your text to link…

Racing is a big industry in the South. Danica has opened the doors and set the stage for others who want to rev up their engines in this profession that was formerly a unisex circuit. Racing in the Florida big race is no small achievement. It took hard work, wins and loses, and much blood, sweat and tears to be considered for one of the starting positions in the race. The upcoming event will have all eyes on Florida, and the woman who could take it all. Florida sports always draw huge crowds. People come from near and far just to be a part of the Florida sports scene. The state has a sport for everyone to enjoy.

The one sport that will keep you on the edge of your seat is the autp racing. Watching the cars as they roar down the tracks at speeds that are legally beyond the speed limit gives spectators a rush of adrenaline. Race fans start preparing for this months in advance of the event. Like all of the other major sports, auto racing has a season, and this season promises to be one of the biggest and best for fans who will embark on the motor raceway. Look out for the lime green GoDaddy car as it makes it’s debut sporting a new look with the numbers, and the letters.

What to Expect from the Rays in 2018:

It’s not long now before pitchers and catchers report for spring training. Certainly the Tampa Bay players and their fans will head to Port Charlotte with the optimism that they can be competitive in what is sure to be a very tough American League East Division. The Rays had a much improved 2017 season, finishing 80-82, good enough for third in the East. That’s a far cry from their 2016 record 68-94 and a last place finish. But even if Tampa Bay makes it over the .500 mark this year, can they contend with the likes of Boston and New York?

There are going to be concerns with the Rays offensive production with Evan Longoria now in a Giants uniform and Logan Morrison likely to sign as a free agent with another team. That’s a loss of 58 home runs and 171 RBIs combined from last season. So who picks it up at the plate? The Rays will have to rely more on Steven Souza (30 HR & 78 RBIs), though he will have to hit better than the .239 clip he had in 2017. More also must be expected of Corey Dickerson (27 HR, 62 RBIs, .282). That’s a pretty good 1-2 punch from the outfield. If Wilson Ramos can rebound from his injury that limited him to 64 games last year, and Denard Span can come through as a table setter, The Rays should do well putting runs on the board. It would also be nice if Mallex Smith can become the table setter the Rays hoped for.

In the end, it’s going to come down to pitching. Alex Colome turned into a reliable closer with 47 saves and a 3.24 ERA last year. Your text to link… Many of the starters, however, saw their ERAs surpass 4.00. Alex Cobb did the best of any starter with 12 wins, but he’s a free agent. It will come down to whether Chris Archer can become a true staff ace, with Jake Odorizzi a solid number two. If that does not happen, look for the big guns of Boston and New York to feast on Rays pitching in 2018.
