We would like to welcome all our new subscribers to the Rowlingstone family! As we come to the new year, we’d like to do a special thank you to all our subscribers, free and premium. We

have​​had​​a​​fantastic​​2017​​and​​look​​forward​​to​​what​​2018​​brings​​us​​all.

Our​ ​premium​ ​channel​ ​is​ ​now​ ​closed​ ​for​ ​new​ ​signups.​ ​In​ ​the​ ​new​ ​year,​ ​we​ ​will have​ ​announcements​ ​about​ ​our​ ​plans​ ​for​ ​community​ ​development.​ ​Meanwhile, please​ ​contact​ ​us​ ​for​ ​more​ ​information.

Recap

It​​was​​a​​crazy​​week​​for​​the​​cryptocurrency​​market,​​with​​over​​$100bn​​market​​cap​​increase​​in​​just

a​​7​​day​​window​​from​​$500-$600bn,​​and​​then​​a​​$100bn​​bleed​​close​​to​​the​​weekend​​which​​shook

lots​​of​​newbies​​out​​and​​saw​​BTC​​shed​​another​​20%,​​falling​​below​​$13,000​​and​​reminding​​us

that​​things​​can’t​​go​​up​​forever!​​We’ve​​had​​lots​​of​​questions​​about​​this,​​and​​we​​believe​​the

market​​is​​still​​to​​remain​​bullish​​in​​the​​coming​​months.Bitcoin​​crashed​​30%​​6​​times​​this​​year,

and​​each​​time​​recovered​​extremely​​quickly​​and​​bounced​​back​​far​​beyond​​its​​original crashing​​point​​within​​a​​short​​time​​frame..​​If​​you’ve​​built​​your​​portfolio​​with​​risk​​management in​​mind,​​you​​should​​be​​back​​to​​normal​​before​​long.​​Again,​​a​​reminder​​that​​holding​​is​​best,​​panic

selling​​will​​often​​leave​​you​​short​​here.​​Bitcoin​​dominance​​remains​​below​​50%​​and​​we’re

expecting​​next​​year​​some​​of​​the​​top​​20​​altcoins​​to​​take​​significant​​share​​of​​the​​market.

We​​believe​​we​​will​​continue​​to​​see​​further​​growth​​in​​the​​coming​​months​​for​​a​​number​​of

reasons:

1. With​​Professional​​traders​​entering​​the​​market​​from​​the​​financial​​world,​​significant​​sums of​​money​​will​​pour​​into​​this​​extremely​​volatile​​and​​profitable​​market.

2. Retail​​investors​​are​​coming​​in​​thick​​and​​fast.​​With​​more​​mainstream​​media​​coverage, even​​your​​grandma​​has​​heard​​about​​Bitcoin,​​and​​may​​even​​consider​​buying​​some.​​We’ll talk​​more​​about​​this​​subject​​next​​week​​for​​our​​New​​Year​​Special,​​so​​keep​​an​​eye​​out.

3. Corporations​​and​​banks​​will​​start​​to​​buy​​cryptocurrency​​to​​bolster​​reserves.​​This​​kind of​​money​​means​​we​​will​​see​​pumps​​on​​the​​more​​mainstream​​friendly​​cryptocurrencies,

and​​those​​in​​the​​top​​10-20​​particularly.​​Some​​likely​​candidates​​are

a. BTC​​Bitcoin

b. ETH​​Ethereum

c. LTC​​Litecoin

d. BCH​​Bitcoin​​Cash

e. DASH

f. XMR​​Monero

g. XRP​​Ripple

h. XLM​​Stellar

We​​expected​​some​​fluctuation​​from​​Bitcoin​​and​​the​​alt​​market​​and​​before​​publishing​​the

newsletter,​​the​​sentiment​​had​​changed​​hence​​this​​weeks​​delay​​to​​publish.​​With​​over​​$100bn

growth​​in​​7​​days,​​it​​was​​likely​​that​​value​​could​​be​​shed​​from​​the​​market​​within​​half​​of​​that​​time

period,​​as​​people​​look​​to​​take​​profits​​over​​Christmas​​and​​weak​​hands​​are​​shaken​​out.

With​​that​​said,​​we​​are​​expecting​​the​​market​​cap​​of​​cryptocurrency​​to​​go​​at​​least​​x6​​from​​where​​it

is.​​That​​brings​​it​​in​​line​​with​​the​​Foreign​​Exchange​​market,​​which​​is​​entirely​​possible.​​That​​said, the​​closer​​we​​get​​to​​that​​point​​the​​closer​​we​​get​​to​​a​​very​​large​​scale​​market​​crash.​​It’s​​important

to​​have​​strategies​​prepared​​that​​protect​​you​​from​​volatility,​​afterall,​​the​​90s​​dot​​com​​stock

bubble​​did​​eventually​​burst,​​but​​that​​didn’t​​mean​​the​​internet​​was​​useless.

mean ​​ the ​​ internet ​​ was ​​ useless. The ​ ​ MSCI ​ ​ growth

The​ ​MSCI​ ​growth​ ​of​ ​tech​ ​stocks​ ​is​ ​now​ ​​higher​ ​than​ ​it​ ​was​ ​during​ ​the​ ​bubble.​ ​​If​ ​you​ ​want​ ​to

know​​what​​it​​is​​to​​be​​a​​real​​holder,​​imagine​​holding​​for​​10​​years​​through​​THAT​​dip.

Here​​at​​Rowlingstone​​we​​are​​trying​​to​​identify​​the​​best​​blockchain​​and​​cryptocurrency​​projects

that​​we​​believe​​will​​survive​​through​​a​​tech​​bubble​​burst.​​We​​are​​sure​​you​​know​​the​​vast​​majority

of​​these​​coins​​and​​tokens​​will​​crash​​and​​burn,​​so​​particularly​​our​​top​​picks​​are​​those​​we​​believe

should​​be​​safer​​long​​term.

It’s​​important​​that​​by​​this​​point​​if​​you​​have​​made​​significant​​profits​​on​​your​​investments​​that​​you

consider​​taking​​some​​profits.​​Pay​​off​​your​​debts;​​mortgages,​​leases​​and​​loans,​​(and​​your​​taxes

sorry!)​​and​​free​​yourselves​​from​​the​​banks.

Was​​this​​a​​coordinated​​attack​​on​​Bitcoin​​Core?BTC​​dropped​​below​​support​​right​​in​​time​​for this​​announcement;​​and​​right​​after​​Roger​​Ver​​announced​​he​​was​​“selling​​all​​his​​BTC​​due​​to​​high fees”​​-​​GDAX​​then​​also​​announced​​they​​would​​begin​​trading.​​This​​caused​​BTC​​to​​drop​​to​​below

$15,000​​again​​for​​a​​short​​time,​​filling​​some​​luck​​low​​ball​​buy​​orders!​​Anyone​​holding​​BCH​​was

very​ ​lucky​ ​here,​ ​but​ ​this​ ​​prompted​ ​allegations​ ​of​ ​insider​ ​trading​ ​to​ ​Coinbase.​ ​​Coinbase​ ​have since​​halted​​BCH​​trading​​and​​are​​investigating​​internally.

At​​the​​time​​of​​writing,​​BTC​​has​​begun​​to​​recover​​and​​BCH​​has​​declined​​it’s​​growth.​​While​​we

recommend​​holding​​some​​BCH​​as​​a​​hedge,​​we​​do​​not​​believe​​this​​is​​the​​“flippening”​​that​​has

been​​discussed.

Expectations​​moving​​forward:

● BCH​​pairs​​are​​added​​to​​exchanges.​​This​​is​​extremely​​bullish​​for​​the​​BCH​​price​​and​​may

cause​​further​​decline​​in​​BTC.​​CoinEX​​-​​a​​new​​UK​​based​​exchange​​will​​only​​trade​​BCH

pairings.

● Coinbase​​will​​add​​more​​coins,​​which​​most​​likely​​will​​be​​one​​by​​one​​and​​from​​the

following​​list:

○ XRP

○ DASH

○ XMR

○ ETC

Others​​will​​follow,​​and​​we’ll​​explore​​them.​​For​​now​​it​​may​​be​​worth​​stocking​​up​​on​​the​​above​​in

the​​event​​that​​these​​listings​​do​​take​​place,​​as​​they​​will​​cause​​big​​pumps.​​Things​​are​​getting​​kind

With​​Ethereum​​ICO​​price​​at​​$0.20​​just​​this

that​​offer​​scalable,​​efficient​​development

One​​project​​that​​really​​stands​​out​​for​​its​​long​​term​​potential​​is​​ICON.​​This​​project​​is​​backed​​by​​a

team​​of​​over​​50​​employees​​and​​25​​partner​​companies,​​and​​was​​created​​by​​Dayli​​Financial
