Bit VS Bitcoin Help

"bit" vs "bitcoin" will eventually lead to a confusion scam on new users.

It is inevitable. There will be someone out there convincing new users they are buying a bitcoin and selling them a bit. A wallet that has the bit integrated could help reinforce the scammer when convincing susceptible victims.
If a new term is adopted it needs to sound different than bitcoin and different than satoshi, the two already used terms.

Announcement on Preparations of Coming BCH Fork & Launch of Forked Coins Futures Markets

Announcement on Preparations of Coming BCH Fork & Launch of Forked Coins Futures Markets

https://preview.redd.it/etcgo7f7l0p51.jpg?width=900&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=3fdc41c9077c5d3461e29829c2e76de3853e4915
Dear CoinEx users,
The Bitcoin Cash (BCH) network will undergo a semi-annual hard fork upgrade on November 15 as scheduled. The Bitcoin ABC team plans to introduce new Coinbase rules in this upgrade, and allocate 8% of block rewards to developers to support the infrastructure construction of BCH, namely Infrastructure Funding Plan (IFP). This Plan has aroused hot discussions and controversies in the BCH community. Among them, the Bitcoin Cash Node development team launched BCHN full node that is incompatible with the BCH full node developed by the BitCoin ABC team, and the BCHN full node implementation removed the Coinbase rules and won support from most miners.
Since the Bitcoin ABC full node implementation is widely used and recognized, it is very likely that BCH will be split into two chains during the upgrade. One of which will inherit the name of BCH and the other will adopt a brand new name. If a fork occurs, all BCH holders can get two cryptocurrencies at a 1:1 ratio.
Unlike previous forks, this potential fork may be unable to continue due to lack of hashrate for a certain chain, or it possibly bring about two chains but not knowing which chain will use the name of BCH. More complexly, this fork lacks a transaction replay protection mechanism, which may result in considerable chaos and users’ asset loss.
CoinEx is a strong proponent of the BCH ecosystem, supporting trading markets with BCH as the pricing coin. To provide users with better services, we are going to launch futures markets of BCH forked coins on September 24, 2020. The details are as follows:
  1. Before the official fork on November 15, users can convert BCH into BCHA and BCHN at a 1:1 ratio. BCHA represents the Bitcoin ABC chain after the fork while BCHN represents the Bitcoin Cash Node chain. Also, users can re-convert these two forked coins into BCH at the same ratio before the fork. We will support BCHA/BCH and BCHN/BCH markets soon, and more markets later if needed.
  2. If BCH forks into two chains on November 15, we will appoint the chain with the highest price at the last moment before the fork as BCH. Users who hold the forked coin of that chain can obtain BCH at a 1:1 ratio, and BCH holders can get two different coins at the same ratio. In the future, we will re-adjust the naming rules based on the community consensus.
  3. If Bitcoin Cash does not fork on November 15, then whichever chain wins will inherit BCH. At the same time, we will delist the forked coin of the other chain. Therefore, please be aware of investment risks.
Opening Time
  1. Call Auction 3:00-11:50 September 24, 2020 (UTC)Orders can be placed and cancelled 11:50-12:00 September 24, 2020 (UTC) Orders can be placed but cannot be cancelled
  2. Trading 12:00 September 24, 2020 (UTC)
Risk Warning:Since BCH fork owns great uncertainty, trading or investing in forked coins is risky. Without support of miners, a chain may fail to survive and all related coins will be in vain. Please be note that CoinEx will not promise for the future values of any forked coins!

It doesn't matter whether we use bits or bitcoins.

The bits vs bitcoins debate is irrelevant. There is absolutely no need for bitcoin to use it's own native units. We have software that can automatically display amounts in whatever native currency the user desires. In developed nations with fairly strong currencies, this is what should happen. The average person in these countries does not want to change the currency that they think in, and it's not even necessary. This will hasten adoption and increase people's comfort level. Who cares what people call the units as long as they are using bitcoin?

A bit confused regarding the Bitcoin VS Bitcoin Cash atm...

So when Bitcoin cash first came out, everyone was saying "yeah this is just a shitty attempt by x person to fuel their x needs" and "bitcoin cash will spike up, and then it'll die out" or the "bitcoin cash is worthless".
This was all over my home feed, and it was in all the 3 main bitcoin subs like this one, bitcoin and bitcoin markets. Now on the other hand, it's totally different. Now it's all "bitcoin cash is the future" and "the time to invest into bitcoin cash is now", and I'm really confused as to where it suddenly came from. Is is all because people are angry about s2x? Or is it something else?
Is Bitcoin going to plummet because people keep spamming that bitcoin cash is the best and everyone should buy it?

Denominations: bitcoin vs bit vs satoshi

Most wallets tend to support different denominations. Satoshi aka one hundred-millionth of a bitcoin has gained a lot of traction as a default for lighting wallets in particular since it's so cheap and quick to transact minuscule amounts with lightning.
I frequently have type in amounts like 0.00012 and I regularly add one zero too much inadvertently. Are there any plans for supporting multiple denominations in the future (both for the browser plugin and the web interface)?

Bitcoin vs. Bits: Bitcoin Foundation Financial Standards Working Group detailed plans - please discuss

This is from the Financial Standard's Working Group:
Draft Plan 'A' - "bits"
This is one of three draft plans for the recommendations of the Financial Standards Working Group of the Bitcoin Foundation.The five principal standardization tasks are
As these plans are for interchange of data between systems and people, it says nothing about display options for wallets, websites, etc, where a person is communicating with themself. Therefore the distinct aspects of the proposal are for the same unit.
The Bitcoin Foundation shall fund a design bounty for a community competition to design a glyph for the unit. The Bitcoin Foundation shall fund two professionals: one to prepare and advocate for a proposal for an ISO 4217 code, and one to prepare and advocate a proposal for a Unicode codepoint for the winning glyph.
Examples: A pack of gum (around USD 1.00): XBI 2,860 Lunch in Tokyo (around USD 10.00): XBI 28,570 A feature phone (around USD 100.00): XBI 285,710 A decent laptop (around USD 1,000): XBI 2,857,100 A decent used car (around USD 10,000): XBI 28,571,000
This proposal represents a unit that is fairly new to the ecosystem, but which has increasing adoption among users to the extent that the majority of users self-report preferring it to option A.
Advantages: Existing usage and increasing adoption. Small-valued units make the currency seem more accessible to new users.
Disadvantages: Such a small-valued unit may cause Bitcoin to be perceived as a joke currency. The principal unit is too small to be accepted by the network; values below 54.30 millis are considered "dust".
Draft Plan 'B' - "bitcoins"
This is one of three draft plans for the recommendations of the Financial Standards Working Group of the Bitcoin Foundation. The five principal standardization tasks are
As these plans are for interchange of data between systems and people, it says nothing about display options for wallets, websites, etc, where a person is communicating with themself. Therefore the distinct aspects of the proposal are for the same unit.
The Bitcoin Foundation shall fund two professionals: one to prepare and advocate for a proposal for an ISO 4217 code, and one to prepare and advocate a proposal for a Unicode codepoint.
This proposal suggests a unit that has the most history in the ecosystem of the alternatives, but that has fallen out of favor for the majority of participants because the value is inconvenient for most everyday uses. Examples: A pack of gum (around USD 1.00): XBT 0.00286 Lunch in Tokyo (around USD 10.00): XBT 0.02857 A feature phone (around USD 100.00): XBT 0.28571 A decent laptop (around USD 1,000): XBT 2.8571 A decent used car (around USD 10,000): XBT 28.571
Advantages: This unit has the most "history" in the ecosystem. The ISO 4217 code has started to get some use (though less than BTC and not for interchange as an ISO code). This existing use may make the difference between success and failure in acceptance of an ISO 4217 application for a currency code.
Disadvantages: This is an inconvenient unit for day-to-day transactions If users attempt to select a more convenient unit for their wallet application, they will have to convert when they receive an invoice, check, etc. There is an increasing movement in the ecosystem away from this unit, to the extent that most users self-report that they prefer a different unit. Most accounting software is not prepared to handle 8 digits after the decimal.
Draft Plan 'C2'
This is an alternative form for one of three draft plans for the recommendations of the Financial Standards Working Group of the Bitcoin Foundation.
The five principal standardization tasks are
As these plans are for interchange of data between systems and people, it says nothing about display options for wallets, websites, etc, where a person is communicating with themself. Therefore the distinct aspects of the proposal are for the same unit.
The Bitcoin Foundation shall fund a design bounty for a community competition to design a glyph for the unit.
The Bitcoin Foundation shall fund two professionals: one to prepare and advocate for a proposal for an ISO 4217 code, and one to prepare and advocate a proposal for a Unicode codepoint for the winning glyph.
Examples:
A pack of gum (around USD 1.00): XMB 2.86 Lunch in Tokyo (around USD 10.00): XMB 28.57 A feature phone (around USD 100.00): XMB 285.71 A decent laptop (around USD 1,000): XMB 2857.10 A decent used car (around USD 10,000): XMB 28571
This proposal deserves a bit of an explanation. The other two proposals have disadvantages in that they go too far in one direction (too large valued units, necessitating small decimals that are hard to read) or the other direction (too small valued units, necessitating large integer number of units for moderate-sized purchases). This proposal attempts to strike a balance, noting that many bitcoin websites and tools offer this transaction unit (and unit name) as an option that is already widely used.
A variation on this theme would use the existing Unicode codepoint U+20A5 ₥, MILL SIGN, which appears in the currency block. In that case we would call the unit "mill".
Advantages: This unit is already widely used in the ecosystem. This is a convenient unit for a wide range of transaction values. This choice of unit and name leave room for expansion in both directions.
Disadvantages: We do not yet have a design for the required glyph. Most accounting software is not prepared to handle 5 digits after the decimal. On the other hand only two are significant for accounting purposes.

I bought $1k of the Top 10 Cryptos on January 1st, 2020 (Sept Update)

EXPERIMENT - Tracking Top 10 Cryptos of 2020 - Month Nine - UP +56%
See the full blog post with all the tables here.
tl;dr
  • I thought I'd mix it up and start with the 2020 Top Ten first this month.
  • Rough month, but still way up in 2020, and still way ahead of the stock market.
  • I purchased $100 of each of Top Ten Cryptos in Jan. 2020, haven't sold or traded. Did the same in 2018 and 2019. Learn more about the history and rules of the Experiments here.
  • Sept - down month for 2020 Top Ten, except for BNB, which crushed it (+25%)
  • Overall since Jan. 2020 - ETH in the lead (+187%), BNB in distant second place. 100% of 2020 Top Ten are in positive territory and have a combined ROI of +56% vs. +5% of the S&P
  • Combining all three three years, Top Ten cryptos underperforming S&P if I'd taken a similar approach.

Month Nine – UP 56%

2020 Top Ten Overview
After a rough start to the month, most of crypto had a Wake Me Up When September Ends moment. For the 2020 Top Ten Portfolio, it was bad, but could have been (as has been) much worse: it was the best performing of the Top Ten “Index Fund” Experiments in September and at least one of the cryptos (BNB up +25%) had a great month.

Question of the month:

In September, this decentralized exchange (DEX) overtook Coinbase in trading volume:

A) UniswapB) AaveC) CompoundD) Both A and B
Scroll down for the answer.

Ranking and September Winners and Losers

2020 Top 10 Rank
Lots of movement this month: six out of the Top Ten changed positions in September. BCH climbed one from #6 to #5 and BNB made a big move from #10 to #6. Going the opposite direction were BSV, EOS, and Tezos, dropping one, two, and four places respectively.
The big story though, at least for anyone who’s been watching crypto for a while, was the ejection of Litecoin from the Top Ten. In just 30 days, LTC fell five places from #7 to #12. For some context, Litecoin’s absence from the Top Ten is a Top Ten Experiment first. It is also the first time since CoinMarketCap has tracked crypto rankings that Litecoin has not has not held a spot in the Top Ten.
Drop outs: after nine months of the experiment, 30% of the cryptos that started 2020 in the Top Ten have dropped out. LTC, EOS, and Tezos have been replaced by ADA, LINK, and most recently, DOT.
September Winners – Winner, singular: BNB was the only crypto to finish in the green, finished up +25% for the month, and gained four places in the rankings. A very good month for Binance Coin.
September LosersTezos was the worst performing crypto of the 2020 Top Ten portfolio, losing nearly a third of its value, down -31% for the month. LTC also had a bad month, losing -24% and dropping out of the Top Ten.
Since COVID-19 has hammered the sporting world, let’s be overly competitive and pit these cryptos against each other, shall we? Here’s a table showing which cryptos have the most monthly wins and losses nine months into the 2020 Top Ten Crypto Index Fund Experiment:

Wins/Losses
ETH is in the lead three monthly Ws, followed by Tether and Tezos with two wins each. Even though it is up +79% since January 1st, 2020, BSV has the most monthly losses: it has been the worst performing crypto of the group four out of the first nine months in 2020.

Overall update – ETH maintains strong lead, followed by BNB. 100% of Top Ten are in positive territory.

Ethereum remains firmly in the lead, up +187% on the year. Thanks to a strong month for BNB and a weak month for Tezos, Binance Coin has overtaken XTZ for second place, and is now up +109% in 2020.
Discounting Tether (no offense Big-T), EOS (+4%) is the worst performing cryptocurrency of the 2020 Top Ten Portfolio. 100% of the cryptos in this group are in positive territory.

Total Market Cap for the cryptocurrency sector:

The overall crypto market lost about $35B in September, ending the month up +85% since the beginning of this year’s experiment in January 2020. Despite a rough month, this is the second highest month-end level since the 2020 Top Ten Experiment started nine months ago.

Bitcoin dominance:


Monthly BitDom - 2020
BitDom ticked up slightly this month, but is still lower than it has been for most of the year. As always, a low BitDom reflects a greater appetite for altcoins. For context, the BitDom range since the beginning of the experiment in January 2020 has been roughly between 57% and 68%.

Overall return on investment since January 1st, 2020:

After an initial $1000 investment on January 1st, the 2020 Top Ten Portfolio is now worth $1,536, up +56%. This is the best performing of the three Top Ten Crypto Index Fund Portfolios, but not by much: the 2019 Top Ten came in at +54% in September.
Here’s the month by month ROI of the 2020 Top Ten Experiment, hopefully helpful to maintain perspective and provide an overview as we go along:
Monthly ROI - 2020 Top Ten
Even during the zombie apocalypse blip in March, the 2020 Top Ten has managed to end every month so far in the green (for a mirror image, check out the all red table you’ll find in the 2018 experiment). The range of monthly ROI for the 2020 Top Ten has been between a low of +7% in March and high of +83% in August.
So, how does the 2020 Top Ten Experiment compare to the parallel projects?
Taken together, here’s the bottom bottom bottom line for the three portfolios:
After a $3000 investment in the 2018, 2019, and 2020 Top Ten Cryptocurrencies, the combined portfolios are worth $‭3,340‬ ($238+ $1,538 +$1,564).
That’s up about +11% for the three combined portfolios, compared to +31% last month.
Here’s a table to help visualize the progress of the combined portfolios:
Combined ROI - UP +11%
That’s a +11% gain by buying $1k of the cryptos that happened to be in the Top Ten on January 1st, 2018, 2019, and 2020.
But what if I’d gone all in on only one Top Ten crypto for the past three years? While many have come and gone over the life of the experiment, five cryptos have started in Top Ten for all three years: BTC, ETH, XRP, BCH, and LTC (Big L, no pressure, but if you don’t claw yourself back in the Top Ten by January 2021, you’re out of the club). Let’s take a look:

Three Year Club
At this point in the Experiments, Ethereum (+104%) would have easily returned the most, followed by BTC (+77%). On the other hand, following this approach with XRP, I would have been down nearly a third at -31%.
So that’s the Top Ten Crypto Index Fund Experiments snapshot. Let’s take a look at how traditional markets are doing.

Comparison to S&P 500

I’m also tracking the S&P 500 as part of my experiment to have a comparison point to traditional markets. The S&P slipped a bit from an all time high in August and is now up just +5% in 2020.
Over the same time period, the 2020 Top Ten Crypto Portfolio is returning about +56%. The initial $1k investment in crypto is now worth about $1,563. That same $1k I put into crypto in January 2020 would be worth $1050 had it been redirected to the S&P 500 instead. That’s a $513 difference on a $1k investment, one of the largest gaps in favor of crypto all year.
But that’s just 2020. What about in the longer term? What if I invested in the S&P 500 the same way I did during the first three years of the Top Ten Crypto Index Fund Experiments? What I like to call the world’s slowest dollar cost averaging method? Here are the figures:
  • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2018 = $1260 today
  • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2019 = $1350 today
  • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2020 = $1050 today
So, taken together, here’s the bottom bottom bottom line for a similar approach with the S&P:
After three $1,000 investments into an S&P 500 index fund in January 2018, 2019, and 2020, my portfolio would be worth $3,660.
That $3,660 is up +22% since January 2018, compared to a +11% gain of the combined Top Ten Crypto Experiment Portfolios over the same period of time.
That’s an 11% swing in favor of the S&P 500 and breaks a two month mini-streak of wins from the Top Ten crypto portfolios.
For those keeping track or unable to see the table above: that’s seven monthly victories for the S&P vs. two monthly victories for crypto. The largest gap so far was a 22% difference in favor of the S&P back in June.

Conclusion:

September saw losses for both traditional and crypto markets, but crypto got hit harder. What can we expect for the rest of 2020? The Neverending Year is entering the final quarter and is not finished with us yet: a lot can and will happen in the remaining months. More volatility is no doubt to come as we enter the final stretch of a truly unpredictable and exhausting year. Buckle up.
Stay healthy and take care of yourselves out there.
Thanks for reading and for supporting the experiment. I hope you’ve found it helpful. I continue to be committed to seeing this process through and reporting along the way. Feel free to reach out with any questions and stay tuned for progress reports. Keep an eye out for the original 2018 Top Ten Crypto Index Fund Experiment and the 2019 Top Ten Experiment follow up experiment.

And the Answer is…

A) Uniswap
As part of the DeFi/DEX wave, in late August/early September, Uniswap surpassed Coinbase in trading volume.

  • Overall since Jan. 2018 - Bitcoin miles ahead of the pack, and only one close-ish to break even point.
  • Combining all three three years, Top Ten cryptos underperforming S&P if I'd taken a similar approach.

Month Thirty Three – Down 76%

2018 Top Ten Summary for September
After a rough start to September, crypto spent the month trying in vain to claw back ground. While a few coins rebounded quite a bit from the monthly lows, most ended up finishing the month significantly down. Out of the 2018 Top Ten group, Bitcoin lost the least, down -8% in September. NEM followed it’s winning August (yes, you read that right) with the poorest performance, down -26%.

Question of the month:

Which cryptocurrency exchange won approval to create America’s first crypto bank in September?

A) Binance B) Binance.us C) Kraken D) Coinbase
Scroll down for the answer.

Ranking and September Winners and Losers

Rank of 2018 Portfolio - 50% no longer in Top Ten
A lot of shuffling in September. On the upside, Bitcoin Cash and Cardano gained one place each landing at #5 and #10 respectively. Cardano gets special mention for re-entering the Top Ten.
Heading the wrong direction were IOTA, NEM, Dash, and Stellar each falling two or three spots.
The big story though, for long time crypto watchers, was the ejection of Litecoin from the Top Ten, down five places from #7 to #12 in just one month. For some context, Litecoin’s absence from the Top Ten is a Top Ten Experiment first. It is also the first time since CoinMarketCap has tracked crypto rankings that Litecoin has not been in the Top Ten.
Drop outs: After thirty-three months of this experiment 50% of the cryptos that started 2018 in the Top Ten have dropped out. NEM, Litecoin, Dash, IOTA, and Stellar have been replaced by Binance Coin, Tether, BSV, LINK, and most recently, DOT.
September Winners – Although it lost -8% of its value, this month’s W goes to Bitcoin. ADA gets second place, down -15% and climbing back into the Top Ten.
September Losers – As most probably expected after an extremely out of character victory last month, NEM came back down to earth in September, bigly, down -26%. Litecoin finished right behind, down -24% and dropping out of the Top Ten.
For the overly competitive, below is a tally of the winners of the first 33 months of the 2018 Top Ten Crypto Index Fund Experiment. Bitcoin still has the most monthly wins (8) and Cardano in second place with 6 monthly wins. With its poor September performance, NEM now has 7 monthly losses.
Ws and Ls - One clear winner
Every crypto has at least one monthly win and Bitcoin is unique as the only cryptocurrency that hasn’t lost a month yet since January 2018.

Overall update – BTC solidly in the lead, followed by ETH. Dash in the basement, LTC drops out of the Top Ten.

Even though BTC took a bit of a detour on its way back to break-even point, it is still far ahead of the field, down -17% since January 2018. The initial investment of $100 thirty-three months ago is now worth about $83. Second place Ethereum is down -49% over the same time period.
At this point in the 2018 Top Ten Experiment, Dash is at the bottom. It is currently worth $70.49, down from a January 1st, 2018 starting price of over $1,000. That’s a loss of -93%. The initial $100 invested in Dash 33 months ago is now worth $6.77.
The big story this month is LTC’s departure from the Top Ten, the first time since I started the experiment back in January 2018. Whether or not it will eventually fend off the new generation of coins remains to be seen, but it certainly is noteworthy to have one of the most well known and long standing cryptos drop out of the Top Ten. Consider pouring one out for Litecoin.

The crypto market lost over $35B in September and is down -39% since January 2018. The value of the overall crypto market is near where it was in August of this year, just a few months back. As painful as the beginning of the month was, looking at a table like this helps with perspective, especially if you’re panic prone.

Bitcoin dominance:

After steadily dipping for months, BitDom increased a bit in September, up to 57.5%.
For some context: since the beginning of the experiment, the range of Bitcoin dominance has been quite wide: we saw a high of 70% BitDom in September 2019 and a low of 33% BitDom in February 2018.

Overall return on $1,000 investment since January 1st, 2018:

The 2018 Top Ten Portfolio lost -$50 this month. If I cashed out today, the $1000 initial investment would return about $238, down -76% from January 2018.
September broke an encouraging upward trend, but at least the portfolio is taking a break from the -80% range. Here’s a look at the ROI over the life of the experiment, month by month, for some context:
33 Monthly ROIs on Top Ten since Jan 2018
The absolute bottom was -88% back in January 2019.
So the Top Ten Cryptos of 2018 are down -76%. What about the 2019 and 2020 Top Tens? Let’s take a look:
So overall? Taking the three portfolios together, here’s the bottom bottom bottom line:
After a $3000 investment in the 2018, 2019, and 2020 Top Ten Cryptocurrencies, my combined portfolios are worth $‭3,340‬ ($238+ $1,538 +$1,564).
That’s up about +11% for the three combined portfolios, compared to +31% last month.
Here’s a table to help visualize:
Combined ROI on $3k over 3 years - UP +11%
That’s a +11% gain by investing $1k on whichever cryptos happened to be in the Top Ten on January 1st for three straight years.
But surely you’d do better if you went all in on one crypto, right?
Depends on your choice. Let’s take a look:

ETH for the win
Only five cryptos have started in the Top Ten for all three years: BTC, ETH, XRP, BCH, and LTC (unless Litecoin can make a comeback by the 1st of Jan. 2021, it’s not going to make the four year club!). Knowing what we know now, which one would have been best to go all in on?
Ethereum, by a pretty good margin: the initial $3k would be up +104%, worth $6,118 today. The worst choice of a basket to put all your eggs in at this point in the experiment is XRP, down by almost one third.

Comparison to S&P 500:

I’m also tracking the S&P 500 as part of the experiment to have a comparison point with other popular investments options. The S&P 500 Index fell from an all time high in August, but is currently up +26% since January 2018.
S&P since Jan. 2018
The initial $1k investment into crypto on January 1st, 2018 would have been worth about $1260 had it been redirected to the S&P.
But what if I took the same invest-$1,000-on-January-1st-of-each-year approach with the S&P 500 that I’ve been documenting through the Top Ten Crypto Experiments? Here are the numbers:
  • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2018 = $1260 today
  • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2019 = $1350 today
  • $1000 investment in S&P 500 on January 1st, 2020 = $1050 today
Taken together, here’s the bottom bottom bottom line for a similar approach with the S&P:
After three $1,000 investments into an S&P 500 index fund in January 2018, 2019, and 2020, my portfolio would be worth $3,660.
That is up +22% since January 2018, compared to a +11% gain of the combined Top Ten Crypto Experiment Portfolios.
That’s an 11% swing in favor of the S&P 500 and breaks a two month mini-streak of wins from the Top Ten crypto portfolios.
S&P vs. Top Ten Crypto Experiments
That’s seven monthly victories for the S&P vs. two monthly victories for crypto. The largest gap so far was a 22% difference in favor of the S&P in June.

Conclusion:

September was a tough month for both traditional and crypto markets. What’s next for the rest of 2020? More volatility is no doubt to come as we enter the last quarter of a truly unpredictable and exhausting year. Buckle up.
Thanks for reading and for supporting the experiment. I hope you’ve found it helpful. I continue to be committed to seeing this process through and reporting along the way. Feel free to reach out with any questions and stay tuned for progress reports. Keep an eye out for my parallel projects where I repeat the experiment twice, purchasing another $1000 ($100 each) of two new sets of Top Ten cryptos as of January 1st, 2019 then again on January 1st, 2020.

And the Answer is…

C) Kraken
According to an official announcement in September, Kraken is “the first digital asset company in U.S. history to receive a bank charter recognized under federal and state law.”
