Shark Tank Crypto Investment Is More Important Than You Think

Now in its tenth season, “Shark Tank” is a juggernaut for network ABC and its parent company Disney. Over the course of 200 episodes and counting, over $100 million has been invested in up-and-coming startups, small businesses, and entrepreneurs. The sharks (who include QVC queen Lori Greiner, FUBU founder Daymond John, and occasional celebrity shark guests like Ashton Kutcher and Richard Branson) are touted as business experts who are now savvy investors. Every week since 2009, an average of 5 million people (like yours truly - check out my hands-on experience with a variety of “Shark Tank” products here and here) tune in to see a variety of wacky, innovative, and downright stupid ideas pitched to angel investors. So why are we talking about “Shark Tank” at Crypto Briefing? This week’s episode featured a pitch from Dmitri Love for Bundil, a spare change investment platform for cryptocurrency. Not only did Disney allow a crypto company on its airwaves (advertising isn’t easy for crypto projects), but Kevin O’Leary invested $100,000 to take a 50/50 stake. O’Leary, a staunch conservative and one of the best reasons to watch both “Shark Tank” and “Dragon’s Den Canada.” He’s a savvy Canadian investor and makes regular appearances on business TV shows. Let’s dive into some of five important details of this transaction to truly admire how brilliant Love is and why this is a win for the entire cryptocurrency industry. “Shark Tank” Negotiations and Investments Are Real... Yes - “Shark Tank,” like any other reality show, uses the term “reality” loosely. We’ll get into that in a moment. What’s important to understand, however, is that these are real negotiations happening with real investors investing their real money. The reason everyone agrees to do it on TV in front of five million people is because only one percent of those people need to convert to create 50,000 sales over the period of one weekend. What business or brand wouldn’t want that? And obviously the sharks want their investments to perform well, so they love this boost. They’ve been doing it for ten years now, and discussion about the “Shark Tank” effect is now regularly featured on the program. So, when you see Love stumbling through his presentation, fielding hard questions from the investors, and eventually sealing a deal for a much larger percentage of his company than he came in hoping to give up, you’re actually seeing this happen to him. But there are caveats. ...But They’re Still Staged by Disney Calling the negotiations real is a bit of a stretch. Actually, they’re 10- to 20-minute snippets of hour-long negotiations. Like any reality show, they’re edited for drama. Also, the sharks don’t know who’s coming into the tank, but the producers certainly vet the people first. During this process, they know what’s coming, and they are in the ears of the sharks feeding them information. Also, sometimes the deal falls apart after the cameras are turned off, something they’ve aired several times, with Plated being one example. Cuban made the deal on the show, it fell apart, and O’Leary invested in in the company before it struck a deal with Safeway. The Sharks Have an Interesting Tech Investment Record The sharks involved in this episode were Mark Cuban, Greiner, John, O’Leary, and Matt Higgins. Of these sharks, Cuban and O’Leary are there because they created and sold tech companies for billions of dollars. But ABC only airs the half of the story that relates to the men, not their companies. They’re responsible for two of the biggest flops from the dotcom bubble burst. After selling The Learning Company to Mattel for $4.2 billion, Mattel’s sales and earnings dropped. Over $3 billion in shareholder value was lost the next year, and Mattel even sued O’Leary over the matter, which ended with Mattel paying $122 million to settle. The deal is widely known as one of the most disastrous in history. Cuban didn’t fare much better - remember broadcast.com? Neither does anybody else, and if you type the address into your browser, you’ll be taken to the homepage for Yahoo, the company that bought the company from Cuban in 1999 for $5.7 billion in Yahoo stock. Cuban unloaded that stock at a record-setting pace (he literally held the Guinness Book record for “largest single e-commerce transaction.”). It was Yahoo’s largest acquisition and shut down three years later in 2002. “Shark Tank” Just Solidified Cryptocurrency as Mainstream So, with all this being said, Love’s appearance on “Shark Tank” is important for several reasons. First off, cryptocurrency marketing is a rough path, and Love just found his way onto TV, not in a commercial, but within the actual TV show. Anyone working in marketing or PR knows that’s a win. On top of this, O’Leary, one of the country’s most prominent investors, is now involved in cryptocurrency. O’Leary has what he calls his “Mr. Wonderful Platform” of businesses and is a social media machine with over 700,000 followers on Tw

Analysis: 11 coins with sizzling sentiment as BTC wobbles

This has got to be the worst time to be trading crypto. At least a few months ago, it was pretty clear we were in a downtrend. Now, every move of Bitcoin is micro-analyzed, even as those moves become more microscopic, with everyone hoping to find signs that we might finally be turning around. But as of right now, looking at sentiment analysis, most signs still point down (this morning’s spike and $USDT craziness notwithstanding). Let’s look at the market charts to see what I’m talking about. Disclaimer: I write these things late Sunday night, generally. So if something big happens between then and publication, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. For the last few months, Bitcoin just can’t get any sustained sentiment going. We had a peak again last week, leading up to our big drop on the 10th. And that’s the been the pattern for the last few months. We get some sustained bullish action, we reach a peak, people get excited that it’s going to continue and then, bam, the bottom falls out. Sentiment rebounded pretty quick, as did the price of Bitcoin, and we remain in the narrowing price channel we’ve been in so far this fall. That’s not terrible news for Alts, who have been able to ride Bitcoin’s stability to some nice gains. Sentiment has fallen recently with less certainty surrounding Bitcoin, but as long as we don’t see another major drop, people may continue to test the waters and throw some money into other currencies. A couple of things worth noting in the Alts market. You can expect some continued buzz around $ADA, $BAT, $XLM and $ZEC as the world awaits which coin will next be added to Coinbase. As you likely know, $ZRX began trading on Coinbase Pro last week and saw a healthy bump. $BAT has been in my weekly picks for a few weeks now and continues to be the highest rated of the “Coinbase 5”, by sentiment. Another thing worth noting is $BNB. Binance’s native currency has been in the weekly picks for the last two weeks. Generally speaking, $BNB does best in bear markets as the strongest exchange-based coin. If things turn south, it may be worth watching. Stay vigilant though. Eventually, Bitcoin is going to have to pick a direction and it’ll probably be more dramatic than we’ve seen when it does. The Top Alts These coins/tokens had the highest power rating in my analysis this week. The power rating is a weighted calculation taking into account sentiment, volume and the number of unique users who mentioned a coin. Generally, I eliminate any coins mentioned by less than 3 individual people as I don’t feel it would be representative of a trend. One important note: Pay close attention to the previous week’s price action. High sentiment can indicate both a possible move or a possible peak in price, however temporary. I’ll be adding signals soon to indicate this, but be wary of any coin with a major price shift in the last week. 11. 10. 9. 8. 7. 6. 5. 4. 3. 2. 1.

Dragonchain Fundamental Analysis

**DRAGONCHAIN FUNDAMENTAL ANALYSIS** **Team** Dragonchain began life internally at the Seattle office of Disney, as a private Blockchain for which a wide range of use cases were touted by Disney, from Ticketing, to Digital Rights Management, to Voting Systems and more. The tech was later released as open source software and the DragonChain Foundation was founded shortly afterwards to maintain and look after the code. The Dragonchain team has rolled over from the one working on the project at Disney, and has a strong history in Blockchain development. For example, Joe Roets, CEO and Chief Architect of DragonChain Inc, was a Senior Software and Principal Blockchain Architect on the Private Blockchain at Disney, as well as Principal Blockchain Architect at Bloq. He was also a technical advisor for overstock.com and boasts a really strong history of Blockchain Development. Likewise, Lead Developer Brandon Kite was a Senior Software Engineer at Dinsey who worked on the initial implementation of the Private Blockchain. The team have added employees with a strong background in their relevant fields to bolster a strong lineup, and alongside this there is a strong advisory board. It includes a VP of payments for Starbucks, a Co-founder of XBOX, and a few names from Bloq, including Jeff Garzik. As teams and advisory boards go, DragonChain boasts one of the strongest and this is a real plus for the project. **Technology/Use Cases** Dragonchain Inc aims to integrate business applications onto the blockchain, utilising the benefits blockchain technology offers whilst protecting business data. It is going about this goal in two ways - firstly by building a serverless architecture blockchain platform, and secondly by incubating projects that will operate on the blockchain. Consider it a little like a railway - Dragonchain will maintain the track, but also help support different services on the line via incubation. At its core, therefore, Dragonchain is a platform for smart contracts, in the same way that Ethereum, NEO, or LISK are. It can support initial coin offerings, and run Decentralised Apps in the same way these platforms can (or will). However, Dragonchain also recognises that true decentralisation is somewhat at odds with business use cases for Blockchain technology, where the company will need complete control over data visibility and information for risk management and data protection purposes. Dragonchain offers sidechains - essentially a personal, private blockchain running alongside Dragonchain. In the metaphor above, these sidechains are like private railways, so ABC Inc can operate a Private Railway within the Dragonchain system (to push the metaphor further, it is like a ‘local’ rail service that serves only this company). This chain might be private, but this can ultimately connect via Bridge to a public blockchain such as Bitcoin or Ethereum if required. Per the Whitepaper, this allows Dragonchain to provide: > a spectrum of trust for the consumer of blockchain data, where risk is accepted based upon a combination of real world contracts, reputation of nodes, and trustless system assertions. That is, one may trust one’s own data as valid, but require varying levels of consensus verification before accepting a partner or foreign node for use. The system will provide a human readable report as well as API access to this capability. Dragonchain will run on Amazon AWS. As well as scalability, one of the advantages Dragonchain has therefore, is that it will allow smart contract development in a number of programming languages, including Java, Python and C#. This may make it more accessible for smart contract and DAPP programmers than Ethereum. The sidechains don’t require the use of a currency, but can equally support multiple currencies if required and dependent on need. On top of all of the above, Dragonchain will also serve as a Marketplace, where clients can access pre-developed smart-contracts, or engage with programmers or other experts. It therefore offers a complete solution for onboarding businesses to engage in BlockChain technology, offering a mix of private and public blockchain services. To really milk the metaphor one last time, Dragonchain are building a railway system, that allows companies to operate connected private routes (with a route via Dragonchain to the Public ‘Main Lines’), whilst also selling them the carriages and trucks that will operate on that railway and drive their business, and simultaneously incubating businesses in setting up within this railway system. **Token Value** The Dragon Token has a number of uses within the DragonChain system. * Companies will need DRGN tokens to access the incubator (launch ICOs) * DRGN tokens will be used to pay for the products available within the marketplace (which could include ongoing or subscription based fees depending on the setup of the product) * DRGN tokens wi...

This coin is flying WAY under everyones radar...

Full disclosure - I work for a blockchain / crypto analyst company and have a background in wall street trading, etc. I have been studying crypto for about 14 months now. One coin that kept popping up but was never fully analysed by our team is DragonChain. The coin was ignored for a very long time and I was recently tasked with looking further into it. My team is responsible for finding high short term and medium term growth coins. Upon investigating and learning more about DragonChain I was astonished to see a relatively small Reddit community, a decent sized market cap, and a pretty incredible project. The involvement initially with Disney is extremely unique among crypto projects. It is my personal opinion that this is way off of peoples radar and eventually I predict that an "event" (which can be news, a partnership, major development, etc.) will occur and the price could suddenly propel the market cap into the 1+ billion range. Curious what people think that actually hold this coin, or that have been following it for longer than I have. I think the potential here is great. Rating: A- - Needs big event to boost awareness - Needs more exposure to push ICO launches through its platform - Great credibility established through link with Disney - Capable team of highly skilled individuals....

For Newbs : what is dragonchain?

Dragonchain is a Platform for smart contracts like Ethereum or Cardano or EOS. So it is a platform to launch ICOs on and run DAPPs , whereas the scalabily of the Dragonchain is almost infinite because it works with sidechains. This means that every project or DAPP can have their own personalised blockchain structure running parallel to dragonchain. I would think of something like next or Ardor which are similar. So if you need a fast blockchain you can set it up with higher transactions or make it private , but it will be secured by the Dragonchain blockchain. Dragonchain runs on Amazon AWS, it is meant to be a semi private blockchain and the computing is done on AWS servers instead of public mining like in Ethereum. Dragonchain will also provide a marketplace for companies to buy plugins or other tech which they need in order to participate in the blockchain revolution. Dragonchain is also a ICO platform, which will have the requirements for US offerings. Because as you may know , many ICOs are not available for US citizens. To interact with dragonchain , buy the products from the marketplace , as well as geting discounts for new ICOs, you need Dragons. Right now Dragons are a ERC20 token, but after the infrastructure is up and running, it will probably be a native token. now you know why dragon Hodlers are so excited... The potential for this project is huuuuuge, because it helps non-blockchain private companies to get on the blockchain. All in compliance with US law. I myself see Dragonchain as the Bluechip Smart contract platform. Ethereum and EOS will become huge, but i see dragonchain at least having a third of the value of one of those if not more. Correct me please if I am wrong!...

Let’s keep r/DRGN about DRGN

First of all, happy 2018 to all of my fellow slumberers! I know that we are all, by now, aware that DRGN has seen a sudden price surge. I wanted to write this post as a reminder to why we are here on r/DRGN. Posting market graphs and ‘mooning’ posts is ultimately not beneficial for the Dragonchain team *or* its token holders. We are pushing away opportunities for content that provides us with utility whilst simultaneously giving DRGN a poor reputation. Above all, we need to be a *community*—a place that welcomes DRGN aficionados and newcomers alike. If you are like me, then you believe whole-heartedly in the underlying technology behind DRGN and its ability to become a fantastic development platform in the future. The *future* is the key word here. Dragonchain’s success will not come overnight, and it surely will not come due to a buildup of ‘lambos on the moon’ posts. Sure, financial gains are greatly welcomed, but if that is the *only* reason you are here, then why have you become a Dragonchain token holder? We need to maintain a level of maturity, as we are likely to see many more of these so-called ‘micro-moons’ in the coming year and onwards. With each surge, there comes a new wave of token holders looking for a welcoming community. They will come bearing many questions about the utility and the underlying technology; imagine discovering r/DRGN two months from now and all you see is posts about how rich DRGN is making us or will make us. That’s not providing us with a very welcoming light for others to enter our community under. Please think before you post. We have had some excellent content in the past, and it would be a shame to have that be drowned out by unnecessary market reports and false future price estimates. Let’s continue to build r/DRGN into a home that the Dragonchain team is proud of—a place for us to all learn about the technology and the benefits that it will surely provide, rather than the financial gains to be made. Cheers, fellow slumberers....
