Stocks and Crypto Are Under Attack by Banks and Hedge Funds

Stocks and Crypto

Stocks and crypto are falling.

SPY stock (S&P 500) has fallen below $400 per share and is now down more than 17% this year to date.

Bitcoin is down more than 37% this year and has fallen below $30,000 again.

Banks and hedge funds have been selling off both the stock and crypto markets as the need for liquidity rises.

Will stocks and crypto go back up again?

Let’s discuss it.

Banks and hedge funds tank the markets

Banks and hedge funds have been responsible for essentially every market crash in history.

But nothing has truly been done about the systemic risks caused by these financial institutions.

Today we’re seeing the collapse of both stocks and crypto.

Massive selloffs in the market are providing liquidity to institutions in order to keep their losing short positions open.

On top of these fire sales, the amount of shorting has increased to hedge against losses from last year’s bull run.

Short sellers lost billions of dollars last year when the ‘meme stock’ frenzy took over Wall Street.

Today, hedge funds are liquidating the markets to keep up with increased margin requirements this new year.

But at what cost?

Investors invested in great companies are losing money not because of business fundamentals, but because of the lack of regulation in the financial system.

Crypto developers say crypto crash was coordinated

LUNA and UST developers said this week’s crash was caused by a coordinated attack from hedge funds and big banks.

It comes as no surprise since hedge funds and big banks have been colluding to short specific stocks in the market.

The fed has opened investigations looking into these serious issues.

Goldman Sachs’ dark pools are currently under investigation, Archegos founder Bill Hwang was recently arrested with 11 criminal counts, and the list goes on.

Subpoenas went out to several hedge funds and banks earlier this year – one of the hedge funds under investigation is Citadel, according to Bloomberg sources.

Word is spreading on Twitter and Reddit and BlackRock and Citadel are responsible for the massive selloffs in the crypto market too.

Deeper due diligence is being done on this matter.

Citadel or not, coordinated attacks on securities is something the government should be taking seriously.

Will stocks and crypto bounce back?

It’s difficult to look ahead when the markets are bleeding, after all you are seeing your net worth drop quicker than it took for it to reach new heights.

If you’re worried about today’s markets, you might have been introduced to a short-term way of investing.

While certain plays could be short-term trades, majority of the market tends to be a long-term speculative game.

We bet that the companies we’re investing in will do great over the span of 10 years or so and let the markets go through the ups and downs, at least in the case of the stock market.

Crypto has and will always have greater potential than it has previously seen.

And crypto heads know this.

Is this the end of the stock and crypto markets?

Absolutely not.

What we’re seeing today has happened several times over the course of both markets.

After a climb, there’s always some setback that scares investors momentarily.

But if there’s something we can always learn from historic patterns, it’s that stocks and crypto have always gone right back up and set even bigger all-time highs.

Is now the perfect time to buy?

is now the perfect time to buy stocks and crypto?
Is now the perfect time to buy stocks and crypto?

It seems both stocks and crypto are having a difficult time finding a bottom.

And trying to time it has always proven that no one can time the markets perfectly.

Searching for a good entry point could just as likely end up hurting you if the markets were to suddenly go through a reversal.

Skilled long-term investors know that when the markets are red, you buy and hold.

Because the price of securities always goes up after a dreadful period of nonstop downtrend.

The upcoming reversal will have you wishing you’d have stocked up on stocks and crypto today.

Adam Aron Fights Fake AMC Token: Calls it a “Sham”

Adam Aron on AMC token
Adam Aron on AMC Token – CEO fights back

Scammers on social media have been pumping a fake AMC token by the name of xAMC.

Fake indeed because the pumpers claim to be part of the ‘ape community’.

However, the community can spot a grifter from miles away – big mistake.

The project’s name has been changed from “The AMC Token” to “The Apes Movement Community Token”.

These scammers are targeting the ‘ape’ community and AMC President and CEO Adam Aron has called them out stating, “we are fighting them hard.”

I was threatened to get sued by their ringleader after a voicemail was left on my business phone number, but more on that later.

I won’t release their name or voicemail, for now.

Adam Aron says they are fighting AMC token scammers

For over a month now the AMC token scammers continuously commented on various Twitter posts where AMC shareholders would engage in.

The scammers began to hype this AMC token in efforts to get AMC shareholders to buy the cryptocurrency.

So, who are these scammers?

I published an article weeks ago exposing them here.

A day later these scammers began to harass me on social media and the ringleader exposed himself entirely when he left a voicemail on my business number.

I was threatened to get sued if I did not take down my article exposing the grifters.

That was a big mistake because I now have their personal contact information and Adam Aron could be taking legal matters into his own hands.

Adam Aron said on Twitter:

“The AMC Token” (after our vigorous protest: “The Apes Movement Community Token”) is a total sham.”

“AMC Entertainment has nothing to do with this blatant violation of our registered trademark, and attempted theft of our name/reputation. We are fighting them hard. Don’t be fooled!

Will ApeCoin Continue to Skyrocket in Value?

Will ApeCoin continue to go up in value?
You can now buy ApeCoin with Coinbase – Will ApeCoin keep going up?

Should you get in on ApeCoin or stay the hell away from it!?

ApeCoin was made available to retail investors on Wednesday, March 16th.

The cryptocurrency comes from a partnership between The Bored Ape Yacht Club and a decentralized company, ApeCoin DAO.

The new cryptocurrency has gained the attention of the retail community primarily invested in NFTs and crypto.

But stocks, crypto, NFTs, that’s what the new generation is all about.

ApeCoin started at $1 per token and is currently trading over $14!

Will the cryptocurrency continue to go up in value?

Let’s talk about it.

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – if you haven’t already joined the newsletter be sure to do that below. I’m publishing daily market news to keep you informed.

Let’s dive right into it!

Join the newsletter so you don’t miss out on new content.

Receive market news and updates straight to your inbox!

What is ApeCoin?

ApeCoin is a cryptocurrency deriving from the Ethereum blockchain launched by the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC).

If you don’t know who BAYC is chances are you might have seen their popular NFTs online at some point.

They depict creative and stylish bored apes that sell tremendously high on the market!

Below is a gallery of their work.

Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTS

The company Yuga Labs is the creator of both the Bored Ape Yacht Club and now ApeCoin.

ApeCoin is owned and operated by the ApeCoin DAO, a decentralized organization where each token holder gets to vote on governance and use of the Ecosystem Fund.

What is the purpose of ApeCoin?

ApeCoin ($APE) is a token for culture, gaming, and commerce used to empower a decentralized community building at the forefront of web3.

The cryptocurrency is essentially creating a token for members of its community to further enrich its NFT culture.

Will Yuga Labs’ new cryptocurrency have the same ‘status’ as Bored Ape Yacht Club NFTs do?

It’s certainly possible, but I’d love to hear your thoughts on this in the comment section at the end of the article.

The project is looking to create value within the blockchain culture, which has many possibilities that are still to this date unknown.

Just like when the internet was new, this new culture of blockchain technology is going to change the world.

Crypto, NFTs, and everything that we currently know in the space is just the beginning.

Where can you buy ApeCoin?

Buy ApeCoin with Coinbase
Buy ApeCoin with Coinbase

You can buy ApeCoin through a crypto exchange such as:

  • Coinbase
  • Gemini
  • CoinMarketCap
  • Binance
  • Kraken
  • FTX

Something curious happened when the new cryptocurrency launched, it was available on every major crypto exchange.

The crypto is still fairly new and I anticipate as it continues to gain more attention, more retail investors will take a position.

How many ApeCoin tokens are in circulation?

ApeCoin circulation - ApeCoin supply
Will ApeCoin keep going up?

ApeCoin has a total max supply of 1 billion tokens and 277.5 million are currently in circulation, which equivalates to only 28% of the total supply.

ApeCoin’s total max supply is less than Cardano (ADA, 45b), Ripple (XRP, 100b), and Algorand (ALGO, 10b).

While the new cryptocurrencies circulating supply is relatively low compared to its max supply, investors must be aware that developers may increase the circulating supply at any moment.

Increasing the supply (like any other cryptocurrency) would lower the price of ApeCoin.

The cryptocurrency is still a highly speculative play and investors should always due extensive research to identify and estimate whether the cryptocurrency will continue to go up in value.

Interesting facts about ApeCoin

Will Ape Coin go up

The creators of ApeCoin distributed the cryptocurrency for free to every Bored Ape Yacht Club holder.

For each Bored Ape you own, you’re entitled to 10,094 $APE.

That’s equivalent to $150,000 today.

So far, around 110 million APE tokens have been claimed by NFT holders.

Yuga Labs is getting 150 million APE, 10 million of which (“or equal value”) will go to the Jane Goodall Legacy Foundation.

140 million $APE will go to the companies and people that helped initiate the project.

The 80 million $APE going to its founders of Yuga Labs will be locked for the first 12 months so holders cannot cash out and tank the price.

So, is APE worth buying and holding for a year?

Let me know what you think in the comment section below.

How is ApeCoin being used?

Benji Bananas
Will Ape Coin go up

A mobile game called Benji Bananas, developed by Animoca Brands (whose co-founder, Yat Siu, is on the board of the Ape Foundation), is adopting ApeCoin as a kind of in-game currency. 

For 25 ApeCoins, you can buy a Benji Bananas Membership Pass, which lets you earn “special tokens” in-game.

Those tokens can then be swapped for actual ApeCoins.

So far, this is the only utility of APE as it’s relatively new.

ApeCoin is part of the Bored Ape Yacht Club’s ecosystem and I expect a lot more utility will be offered in the future as we enter the metaverse and blockchain technology becomes more familiar.

What we do know is that APE will be used to access merchandise, events, and services later on.

How much is $APE worth?

At the time of this article, ApeCoin is currently trading in the market for $23.85.

Its current market cap is $7.1B with a typical hold time of 25 days according to Coinbase.

An improvement from earlier this March as seen below.

APE Market Stats – Will Ape Coin go up?

If retail investors decide to go long on APE then we can expect the typical hold time to increase.

ApeCoin is up more than 2,300% since its inception and has gained a lot of popularity across multiple crypto exchanges.

The $12-$13 price range seemed to be a foundation for APE although the cryptocurrency has begun to set new ATHs.

Granted, it’s only been two months, but I’d love to know your thoughts on how high this crypto asset can go.

What Are NFTs And How Will They Change The World?

What are NFTS - NFTS explained
What Are NFTs? NFTs explained

If you haven’t heard of NFTs yet, you will.

This technology is a little mind boggling in the sense that it’s so simple yet revolutionary.

NFTs are going to change the way we transmit data and connect with one another.

The NFT community is growing now quicker than ever.

franknez.com NFT

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I want to discuss what an NFT is and why this technology is growing so quickly.

Lets get started!

What Are NFTs?

NFTs, also known as non-fungible tokens, are a unit of data stored in blockchain technology.

This data is usually stored in a piece of artwork containing exclusive access and prizes for holders.

If you’re familiar with Gary Vaynerchuck, his startup VeeFriends is actually a collection of his personal NFTs.

Gary has built an NFT community where buyers gain exclusive access to VeeCon, a multi-day conference focused on business, marketing, creativity, entrepreneurship, and a lot more.

What Are NFTs Used For?

NFTs are tokens that may grant access to exclusive content, future products, prizes, or events.

Each NFT, depending on how the seller uses it, can unlock different levels of membership access. This is why NFTs are usually so expensive.

How Are NFTs Going To Change The World?

NFTs are cutting out the middle-man.

You can now sell NFTs directly without distributing tickets to your audience or community.

Business owners and entrepreneurs will be the ones to take advantage of this blockchain technology.

NFTs are also going to allow content creators to connect with the community and sell tokens for exclusive content and build a one of a kind art from that specific content creator.

These artworks are designed so that you cannot copy or duplicate them. They were originally created to protect or copyright artists’ work.

This means only one person could own the original, or a few people could own part of a scarce collection from that artist or content creator.

NFTs are changing our world by how we communicate with one another and transmit information.

For consumers, it can be a great way to keep something very personal and special from your favorite content creators.

How Do You Buy NFTs?

Because NFTs are Ethereum-based tokens, most marketplaces only accept ETH as a form of payment.

And if you have never purchased crypto before, check out this article on how to open your account through a crypto exchange.

Here you’ll be able to purchase Bitcoin, Ethereum, ADA, Doge, and other cryptocurrencies.

OpenSea is the world’s first and largest NFT marketplace.

How to buy NFTs
How To Buy NFTs

Anyone can create and buy NFTs here, even if you’re not a content creator or have any knowledge in blockchain tech.

Can NFTs Go Up In Value?

If you’re a collector, then you’re more than likely building a portfolio that may go up in value over the course of a few months to a few years.

NFTs certainly have the potential to go up in value depending on who the creator is.

You just never know how far this certain content creator will go or who they will impact society one day.

Buying an NFT from their younger selves today could prove to be a rare piece of art in the future.

Will NFTs Become Mainstream?

My personal take is they will.

The NFT community is growing every day and as more content creators find ways to provide more value to their communities, NFTs will continue to be a source of exclusivity and connection.

Former Citi Executives Have Now Formed a Crypto Hedge Fund

Former Citibank executives form crypto hedge fund, Motus Capital Management

A trio of former Citigroup executives who left the bank in March have formed Motus Capital Management, a crypto hedge fund.

The firm says it wants to make it easier for high-net worth individuals to bet on cryptocurrencies.

Alex Kriete, Greg Girasole and Frank Cavallo are seeking to raise $100 million for a pair of actively managed hedge funds that will focus on digital assets, the three said via Bloomberg.

Kriete says clients are having difficulty identifying what’s “scammy” vs “real investment opportunities.”

I know retail investors are going to have a lot of opinions on this.

Let’s break it down some more.

Who are the crypto hedge fund trio?

Kriete and Girasole left Citigroup less than a year after being picked to oversee a new digital-assets group inside the Wall Street giant’s wealth-management division.

Before that, Kriete managed $3 billion and Girasole $5 billion for Citigroup private-bank clients.

Cavallo was most recently an investment counselor at Citigroup, where he oversaw $8 billion of assets and held roles inside the firm’s cross-asset sales and trading division according to Bloomberg.

All three are investing their wealth in Motus Capital Management.

This is one of the first crypto hedge funds to emerge in the crypto space.

And where there’s a hedge fund, we already know there are bets towards the downside.

Motus Capital Management to offer growth and income funds

Motus Capital Management
Motus Capital Management

The crypto hedge fund says it plans to offer clients growth and income funds.

The growth fund will focus on investing in tokens with smaller market capitalizations that larger funds find it harder to invest in, Cavallo said. 

“We think we hit the sweet spot,” he said. “With assets like Bitcoin and ETH, clients can do that on their own. They don’t need to pay someone to buy Bitcoin.”

Crypto hedge funds are relatively new and only have about $3.8 billion in assets under management globally according to a report by PwC.

Less than half of all crypto hedge funds have assets under management of more than $20 million, PwC found.

I expect this side of the industry to exponentially grow this decade.

Citadel’s Ken Griffin said he would provide crypto opportunities to his clients if the asset class became strictly regulated.

Crypto is taking over the new world as businesses such as AMC Entertainment and Tesla transition towards accepting cryptocurrency as a form of payment.

Do you think hedge funds should enter the crypto space?

Former Citi executives start crypto hedge fund

Who’s to say the SEC won’t begin to establish regulations to attribute to hedge funds over retail investors?

Similar to the stock market.

Investors are going to want to keep a close eye on the development of such regulations and ensure the crypto market’s integrity doesn’t get broken.

The crypto market, though a highly speculative market, has been accurately based on supply and demand unlike the stock market where many institutions have blatant power over retail investors.

Yahoo Pumps Fake AMC Token Created by Scammers

Yahoo Pumps Fake AMC Token Created by Scammers

Recently we’ve seen an AMC token surface in the ‘ape’ community known as TAMC, or $xAMC.

Do not fall for this scam.

This is in no way, shape, or form from the community or by the community.

Does it come as a surprise that Yahoo is pumping this fake AMC token?

Not at all.

Yahoo Finance has been attacking AMC, GameStop, and the community for over a year now since the short squeeze topic has created a movement in the retail community.

This is a different type of low.

Let’s break it down together.

Yahoo promotes fake AMC token created by grifters

AMC Token

The AMC Token, aiming to be the next 1000xgem in the crypto space, is starting its adventure with a unique fair launch event held on April 30, 2022, on Pink Sale Finance official link attached below; the invitation is for all the interested Apes/Investors to this extraordinary event.” – Yahoo Finance

Yahoo is promoting a fake AMC token that has the potential to destroy investors’ finances.

The mere pump of such a scam by a mainstream platform such as Yahoo is quite disturbing.

We’ve seen corporate media deteriorate their reputation amongst the retail community in the past year and months.

Agendas such as this one is not uncommon as the media has been trying derail investors from buying AMC stock; hoping to extinguish any chance of a short squeeze.

Who started xAMC token?

Grifters is the account promoting the fake AMC token on Twitter.

The user recently joined the social media platform only one month ago, no surprise there.

The definition of a grifter on its own is already a con-artist, or a dishonest gambler.

Here we see a puppet on social media promoting this page’s scam within the ‘ape’ community.

Grifters scammer

This account joined Twitter in April of 2022, this month.

They ‘like’ and retweet comments from retail investors in the ‘ape’ community but only promote this fake AMC token.

xAMC token

Yahoo says the AMC Token fair launch aims to craft a wider distribution and an effective price discovery.

“The project will not set a dollar price for the tokens; demand and supply in the fair launch event will. No Pre-Sale, Initial Coin Offering, Seed Round, or Whitelist before fair launch is completed; everyone has the same opportunity to acquire The AMC Token (TAMC) from day one.”

Why is Yahoo pumping this token from grifters?

I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section.

Just please keep it clean for Google.

Grifters helps scammers with their technical and marketing needs while helping them rug pull at ease.

A rug pull is essentially when a token is pumped and then the creators dump all the tokens cashing in from the pump while everyone else loses all their money.

Similar to what we saw with dogecoin influencer Matt Wallace on his own token earlier this month.

Yahoo and scammers promote Ethereum network on fake token ‘by apes’

Both Yahoo and scammers are promoting the fact that this AMC token is using the Ethereum network.

The excerpt above is from Yahoo.

This image of the token pumping has been promoted on Twitter to get retail investors in the ‘ape’ community interested in this scam.

As you can tell from the image, the AMC token is displayed as xAMC/ETH since it is indeed based on the Ethereum network.

The screenshot is from the grifter community, also being promoted by Yahoo.

Here is Yahoo’s article touching topic on this scam.

What’s curious is that Yahoo has never spoken out against malpractices in the system but hits it on the nail as they promote this scam.

The image is embedded for record purposes.

Don’t get scammed by Yahoo and Grifters

Community, campaigns such as this one will happen in order to divert retail from maintaining focus on a short squeeze play.

What does this tell you?

The suits behind these campaigns are in a world full of pain.

Retail investors have caused hedge funds to lose billions of dollars on heavily shorted stock such as AMC and GameStop.

Should this tactic be illegal?

Absolutely.

But it isn’t.

The best thing you can do for you and your family is to do your research first before jumping in on a scam such as this AMC token being pumped by Yahoo and social media grfiters.

Official: You Can Now Trade Shiba Inu Coin on Robinhood

Robinhood Lists Shiba Inu Coin
Shiba Inu Coin is now on Robinhood

Robinhood has officially listed Shiba Inu Coin on its crypto trading platform.

The SHIB army has been waiting for Robinhood to list Shiba Inu Coin for months now.

Shiba Inu Coin was one of four new cryptocurrencies Robinhood listed on its platform Tuesday.

SHIB, Solana, Polygon, and COMP joined the meme stock halter’s platform on Tuesday.

What does this mean for Shiba Inu Coin moving forward?

Let’s break it down together.

SHIB rises on Robinhood listing

Robinhood Shiba Inu Coin
Shiba Inu Coin News Today Robinhood

SHIB rose nearly 7% when it became available on Robinhood’s crypto trading platform.

Shiba Inu Coin is the second ‘meme’ coin to be listed on Robinhood, Dogecoin being the first.

COMP jumped 6.6%, MATIC 3.5%, and SOL 2%.

SHIB became popular when the cryptocurrency skyrocketed back in late October of 2021.

The cryptocurrency is up more than +20,000% for those who bought SHIB exactly one year from today.

Shiba Inu Coin ate a zero on its second biggest climb last year and never looked back.

The SHIB army anticipates Shiba Inu Coin will eat another zero or two this year.

Now that you can trade Shiba Inu Coin on Robinhood, cryptocurrency investors speculate more traders will buy SHIB on the platform.

What caused SHIB to run last year and will it run again?

Big buying pressure and a lot of momentum.

Unlike the stock market, the crypto market runs actually caters more to a supply and demand market.

Now that SHIB has become mainstream in a sense, more traders are going to begin to discover it.

While SHIB doesn’t have any real-world value, the developers are working on multiple projects for the community.

One being Shiba Inu Games and several NFT projects.

Will SHIB run again this year?

There’s no doubt Shiba Inu Coin will continue to eat zeros as retail piles in before the ‘meme’ token reaches $0.01.

SHIB is currently trading at $0.000027 and is up 9.98% on the weekly chart.

Can SHIB reach $1 per token?

Shiba Inu Coin News Today Robinhood – Can SHIB reach $1?

In order for SHIB to reach $1 per token its market cap would need to be in the trillions.

Having this come to fruition would be quite difficult.

However, because this cryptocurrency is still relatively new, investors have a chance at becoming profitable in the long-term as the market cap increases and new traders buy in.

Many of my readers were able to profit from the run back in October when I sent out a newsletter advising the token was looking very bullish.

If you’re on my Patreon, you saw I purchased the cryptocurrency a few days before it skyrocketed.

SHIB has been consolidating extremely well in the 20s which mean it’s found a new foundation.

If you missed the first and second run, this could prove to be a great entry point.

We’ve also seen that SHIB’s typical holding time has drastically increased to 112 days meaning investors are holding this cryptocurrency.

And it’s not difficult to see why.

The room for growth is massive.

Are you holding more than 1 million SHIB?

Robinhood Shiba Inu Coin - Shiba inu coin robinhood
Shiba Inu Coin Robinhood – Robinhood Lists Shiba Inu Coin – Shiba Inu Coin News Today Robinhood

If you’re holding more than 1 million SHIB leave a comment below.

What is your personal Shiba Inu Coin price target and where would $0.01 put you at?

If you’re not a fan of Robinhood but would like to purchase SHIB, I recommend buying the token on Coinbase.

How long have you been holding SHIB?

GameStop’s NFT Marketplace gets powered by Loopring

GameStop Loopring Partnership
GameStop Loopring Partnership

For GameStop to move its services to global digital economies it’s going to need the help of both Immutable X and Loopring.

Immutable X is essentially the foundation to GameStop’s NFT marketplace.

Loopring on the other hand focuses on scalability, application delivery, and secure exchanges of payment.

Combined, GameStop has a powerhouse for the future of blockchain gaming.

Users can now access GameStop’s beta NFT marketplace and begin setting up their online profiles.

The first step towards connecting your account with GameStop’s beta NFT marketplace is to connect your wallet.

GameStop and Loopring are still configuring a browser extension that will allow other popular wallets to connect to the platform.

My guess is this will be available for users once GameStop’s NFT marketplace launches in its complete form.

GameStop surges 14.50%, Loopring 40%

Loopring Coinbase
Buy Loopring (LRC) with Coinbase

Today GameStop (GME) surged 14.50% after a 30% runup on Tuesday.

The price surge on Tuesday caused short sellers to lose almost half a billion dollars!

GME stock has dropped almost 4% afterhours while Loopring is up more than 40% in the last 24 hours.

GameStop and Loopring reach a new milestone as they embark on a new journey in the global digital economy.

As GameStop continues to transform itself into a tech company, we can expect GME’s stock price to rise in the future.

Are you holding GME stock?

How do you feel about its current bullish wave?

If you want to invest in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, you can use this mobile and web trading platform to invest long term.

Apart from it, Robinhood (a popular stock trading app) went public in July 2021 and its share price was set at $38 for IPO (Initial Public Offering).

Also, Robinhood was listed on the Nasdaq stock exchange under the symbol “HOOD.”

Recently, Robinhood’s CEO Vlad Tenev said that the company is planning to release the feature that allows customers to trade stocks outside of market hours.

The company named this feature, “Hyper-extended hours.”

According to Bloomberg, Robinhood stock is the favorite stock of Cathie Wood’s ARK funds and they’re purchasing the stocks every week since October 2021.

Last week, ARK Funds have bought about 2.45 million shares of Robinhood markets.

Robinhood Business Model- How the company generates income

With no minimum and no fees for trading in stocks, cryptos, and ETFs, the company has to generate income as a business to be sustainable.

This online brokerage makes money from market makers and some other ways.

Here are the ways through which the company generates revenue.

Payment for Order Flow

In 2021, the company generated 75% revenue through the process payment for order flow (PFOF), in which the company directs their customer’s orders equity and options to a particular market maker and the company receives payment for this compensation.

Hence, PFOF is the major income stream for the company.

Payment for order flow unfortunately plays against retail investors.

The SEC has talked about banning the practice since it allows market makers to manipulate the stock prices.

Stock Loan Income

Robinhood generates revenue by lending margin securities to counterparties.

Furthermore, the company keeps all money it generates from lending your stock and does not share it with you.

This is a big problem because large financial institutions make more money from the user while orders are processed through dark pools.

Borrowing Uninvested Cash

Robinhood generates income by borrowing uninvested cash and depositing this cash in interest-bearing accounts.

Membership Fees for Robinhood Gold

Robinhood Gold program is a paid subscription service that allows users to benefit from premium features like margin trading, Level II Market Data, professional research, and enhanced quick access to deposits.

It is also one of the income sources of the company.

Robinhood Gold costs $5 per month.

Also, it gives a free trial of 30 days.

Robinhood, one of the best online stockbrokers generated huge transaction-based revenue within cryptocurrencies in Q4 2021.

It has a fast-growing cryptocurrency business as the company launched crypto gifts.

Most importantly, the company has introduced cryptocurrency wallets to 1,000 users as a part of the beta test.

Crypto wallets will help the users to transfer digital currencies in and out of the Robinhood app.

The rollout of crypto wallets may be expanded to 10,000 users in March.

Adding a wallet will help the traders to transfer their digital assets out of the online platform to invest. 

Moreover, the company is planning to test new crypto-related functionality on its stock trading app which will allow the user to get statistics, transactions on blockchain at a glance.

The introduction of crypto wallets closed the gap among Robinhood app and cryptocurrency exchanges which will increase the trading in crypto markets.

Most of the US brokers don’t offer crypto wallets, therefore the rollout of crypto wallets on Robinhood will have positive impacts on Robinhood accounts opening in the future.

When it comes to Coinbase vs Robinhood, our personal choice when it comes to investing in cryptocurrency is Coinbase.

Investing in stocks and cryptos is great in so many ways.

If you’re thinking, why should you invest in stocks and cryptos?

Importance of Long-term Investing in Stocks & Cryptos

A long-term investment strategy is like holding assets such as stocks and cryptos for more than a full year.

Anything under a year is a short-term investment.

Long-term investment requires patience and discipline, but it gives incredible outcomes.

Market volatility is a prime matter in investment as the prices fluctuate regularly.

The higher the volatility, the higher the investment’s price fluctuation and the higher the risk.

Here is why you should go for long-term investment.

Long-term holdings in stocks and cryptos exhibit lower volatility, greater profits as compared to short-term.

Assets such as stocks & crypto give higher returns over a long time. It maximizes the growth potential of your savings.

Now, investment in US stocks and digital currencies is far better than bonds and gold investment.

When you watch your investment portfolio grow, your satisfaction increases more.

Stocks are long-term investments and generate better long-term returns.

The longer you invest in stocks, the longer your money will grow.

Among asset classes, the stocks have surpassed all other asset classes.

If you want to keep your money multiplying and become a better investor, it’s wise to go for long-term investment so that the market bump can’t knock you.

Because, when the prices go up and down, you can handle it by remaining patient.

Apart from making you financially strong, the investment makes you disciplined with your money.

It’s a necessary rule to succeed in your life financially.

Long-term holding means fewer trading fees because you will need to pay the fees every time you trade.

Also, it’s easy to do, you can start trading in Robinhood stock-trading app, just by implementing the strategy and patience to make the most of your returns.

Or through a more traditional broker like Vanguard.

Through investment in the stock market, you can benefit from various trading strategies.

Apart from stocks, cryptocurrency is an attractive investment and future of technology that gives high returns.

Long-term investment in cryptocurrency is good for investors to recover and get profits.

You can invest in crypto on Robinhood or cryptocurrency exchanges.

Long-term holding in popular cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum can harvest good returns in 2022.

If you’re a new investor and can’t tolerate big risks, short-term investment cannot work for you, rather you must go with long-term holding.

Digital currencies are rising globally, and the number of investors is investing in them. 

They provide a safe and long-term store of value.

Like other assets, cryptocurrency also exhibits volatility.

If you’ll invest in stocks & cryptos for the long term, there would be less fear, less risk, less trading cost, lower tax rates, and more returns.

Also, you’ll be able to buy the future house, vacation, and can save your education or retirement.

Along with your regular income, trading is the way by which your money keeps multiplying, and you can earn more and do more.

The Bottom Line

Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Sleep on Shiba Inu Coin

Here's why you shouldn't sleep on Shiba Inu Coin
Shiba Inu News – SHIB coin – Shiboshi – Should you buy Shiba Inu coin?

Shiba Inu Coin is up more than 57 million percent this year.

The cryptocurrency has become one of the most popular cryptos since its rise to 9300.

It’s made the top 10 list of most popular cryptocurrencies and continues to gain mass attention from the crypto community.

However, SHIB has been falling for two months straight since its runup.

Should you buy Shiba Inu coin now or wait for more dip?

franknez.com

Welcome to Franknez.com – today I want to touch topic on a beloved cryptocurrency that continues to stand out and innovate.

Let’s get started!

Shiba Inu Innovation

One of the biggest reasons you’d invest in a cryptocurrency is whether the crypto is innovating or not.

While Shiba Inu Coin might have started as a meme, it has many plans for the future that make it an attractive long-term investment for current SHIB holders.

Let’s start with some of the most recent SHIBA news.

Shiba Inu Games

Shiba Inu Games Playside Studios

SHIB has announced that they are finalizing paperwork with a triple A studio (AAA Studio) to create both mobile gaming and metaverse gaming, via. Shytoshi Kusama.

And although they can’t say much, they mention that this AAA Studio has worked with the likes of Disney and Warner Bros., so you know this is going to be quality work.

In fact, the studio just launched its Twitter account this month of December.

PlaySide Studios will be the AAA Studio working on this project.

Joining the Shiba Inu team is game industry veteran, William Volk.

William Volk was the former Vice President of Tech for Activision.

“I am honored to be working with an amazing team on what will become one of the most significant games of all time”, says William.

The first game the SHIB team will be developing is called Shiboshi and will be primarily for mobile.

The Launch of SHI Stablecoin

The next launch for Shiba Inu is SHI, a stablecoin expected to launch after the Shibarium project has gone live.

Shibarium is a layer 2 solution that essentially speeds up transaction processing and reduces gas fees, making it a better more updated platform.

According to Ryoshi, SHI is meant to be a global stable currency that is used both as a store of value and method of payment.

There is currently no set date for the release of this project, however, we know that the stablecoin will start at $0.01.

Shiba Inu Coin Now Accepted as Payment

Shiba Inu Coin is now being accepted in more places than ever before.

SHIB has now been accepted as a form of payment via BitPay which is going to allow a ton of merchants to accept the crypto.

This type of attention draws more investors towards buying the cryptocurrency.

We’ve also seen AMC Entertainment recently announce their acceptance of Shiba Inu Coin too.

And with Shiba Inu Coin now trading on Kraken, it’s only a matter of time before larger trading platforms such as Robinhood begin trading the cryptocurrency.

SHIB has gone mainstream and is no longer considered to be a meme token by some.

The value this crypto is providing in projects to several communities is astonishing.

Shiboshis (Shiba Inu NFTs)

Shiboshis NFTs

Shiboshis are another one of Shiba Inu Coin’s innovative projects in the NFT realm.

The NFT community is changing the way we transact value, product, and services.

If you don’t know how massive NFTs are becoming or how they’re changing today’s world, you have to bookmark this article here.

While NFTs may be highly profitable investments, they’re more about community.

And it’s this community that exposes the world to SHIB and will continue to increase its value as a cryptocurrency.

Should You Buy Shiba Inu Coin?

SHIB is too affordable for anyone to not put something into it.

You don’t have to make an incredibly large contribution.

But if you’re betting on innovation and a growing community like I am, then it is certainly a buy.

Some of my readers got in on SHIB before the runup when I sent out the email via my newsletter and made a lot of money trading it.

Many continue to hold it for its long-term potential.

This cryptocurrency doesn’t have to move up very much to make investors a lot of money.

Look at it this way – many people will become millionaires when SHIB hits one penny.

Yeah, it’s that affordable right now.

Regardless of investor opinion, you cannot deny SHIB knows how to provide value to a number of growing and innovating communities.
