Introduction to Trading Crypto Options

Dear Meditators

We did it. We are back in the +$50k club

Let’s celebrate by exploring today’s hottest topics in DeFi and Crypto. 

Our main article provides an exclusive introduction to trading crypto options. For those who are looking to level up their trading and investing ?

Read, enjoy and share with your network. Let’s all build wealth together.


MARKET BRIEFING

  • Crypto. Applause, laughter and joy filled the crypto streets today as Bitcoin retook $50k: a key level for bull revival. Now before you pop the champagne, securing a foothold about this level is key to the resumption of a broader uptrend and a move toward new record highs. Some have attributed the move to events in legacy markets ?

  • Legacy. A central theme in legacy markets today was dollar weakness. Since stores of value such as gold and Bitcoin are priced against the dollar, in theory, a weaker dollar should have a positive impact on the price of BTC. Biden’s $1.9 trillion stimulus package, which is likely to be approved in the next 2 weeks, is likely a driver of USD weakness.

CRYPTO EXCHANGES

FTX Supports Deposits from PayPal?

Users of the cryptocurrency platform FTX can now use PayPal to deposit fiat into their trading accounts ? The service allows users to deposit almost any currency (since PayPal has a built-in currency converter) and use credit cards to fund accounts ? This news may seem small, but the retail mania it could bring may just be what is needed to kick off a parabolic price advance for Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Altcoins very soon.

? One drawback of cryptocurrency is that new and inexperienced people simply don’t know where to begin when it comes to buying Bitcoin. Exchanges without the ability to deposit fiat (i.e. you can only deposit cryptocurrencies) make it especially difficult for the average user because it is a process that’s completely unfamiliar to them ? The implication is that many don’t invest in Bitcoin because they simply don’t know how. FTX’s integration with PayPal means that new users have a familiar way to deposit funds into an exchange ✅

We know price is a function of supply and demand. People who previously wanted to buy Bitcoin, but were not used to certain functionality, now have the ability to get involved. In other words, more demand is present with a fixed supply. Basic economics tells us that this is the recipe for price appreciation…?

Next, we have our tweet of the day to add some sunshine to your day. Followed by the latest in DeFi ?

DEFI NEWS & ANALYSIS 

Insurance Giant Turns to DeFi 

At this point, we are all used to hedge funds and asset managers joining the crypto space. One sector of the financial services industry is still testing the waters: insurance companies ?  In a recent positive headline, insurance giant Aon announced it is exploring DeFi ?

According to the announcement, Aon (the world’s second largest insurance intermediary) has embarked on a pilot with Nayms, an insurtech platform that allows cryptocurrency holders to provide decentralised insurance cover over losses due to hacks or buggy software ? Also involved in the project are Relm Insurance, a Bermudian insurer that specializes in digital assets, and Teller Finance, an automated matchmaker between investors’ assets and crypto risk liabilities.

The Nayms platform puts the tool of smart contracts in the hand of regulated underwriters (like Relm) and brokers (like Aon), to open up a new capital source when underwriting crypto risk,” Nayms CEO Dan Roberts said via email. “This could be in either crypto (ETH, BTC) or in fiat (via a stablecoin). Aon is assessing both options as part of longer term programs.

? As is the narrative with hedge funds and asset managers, new entrants in the space provide validation for DeFi. This is helpful in creating liquidity, demand and supporting price.

✅ However, when it comes to insurance companies, there is more: insurance companies are amongst the more financially conservative institutions. This is in contrast to hedge funds which are amongst the most risk seeking. And so, the entry of insurance companies has the added benefit of making DeFi more accessible to lower risk and conservative investors. There was a similar sentiment at the time MassMutual bought $BTC:

As we have said previously, narratives are a powerful tool in trading and investing. And this is a strong narrative indeed. For more on this, check out our free ? newsletter ✏️ or ? video guide ?
