I am fascinated by the cryptocurrency market dynamics and the interactions of human behaviour that is a factor in creating such a passionate yet volatile space. This got me thinking about the possible reasons why the market behaves so frantically and as such in this article I will attempt to draw some parallels with the results of an interesting psychological experiment known as the 'marshmallow test' and why cryptocurrency investors should learn about delayed gratification.
On November 28, 1889 the Johnstown Flood occurred after the catastrophic failure of the South Fork Dam, located on the south fork of the Little Conemaugh River, 14 miles upstream of the town of Johnstown, Pennsylvania. The dam ruptured after several days of extremely heavy rainfall and 2,200 people down stream lost their lives. This was the most significant man made loss of life in that time. It was a disaster and in that disaster lies a story that I will tell in this article
The continued and growing adoption of cryptocurrencies has turned up the heat on governments around the world; their reckless money printing has only added fuel to the fire and now their is an ever growing eagerness to develop their Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDCs) before its too late.

In my last article I wrote about why inflation is theft and put this in the context of property rights as being the basis for civilisation itself. In this article I will expand on that idea and explain why Bitcoin is the natural response to this theft by a system that has been pushed upon the world by governments and Central Banks. In most countries property rights are quite good, for example you can open a bank account and put your fiat currency in it and have a degree of tr
Most people don't give any thought to what money really is or how the Central Banking system is effectively rigged against them. In this article I will explain why it's important to understand that the mechanics are literally robbing people of their future wealth and hopefully this will inspire you to take action and at least start to consider other alternatives means for wealth preservation and growth, in particular cryptocurrencies. Although the 'experts' would have you bel
We live in a world where there is an incessant desire for instant gratification. More often than not people seek to experience fulfilment or pleasure without delay; when they want something they want it now. Its interesting that this often happens with an acceptance that there will be a foregoing of a future benefit in order to obtain a less rewarding but immediate benefit, whether it be entertainment, food, sex or in the context of this article cryptocurrency investing.

Recent weeks have seen the price of blockchain Solana’s native currency — SOL — skyrocket. From just over $67 on 25th August, SOL went up to over $200, marking more than a 200% increase in less than 2 weeks. From April to August 2021, the price of SOL had hovered around the $30 level, so the current price represents a nearly five-fold increase in value. This has taken the market capitalization of Solana to over $40 billion, making it the world’s seventh-largest cryptocurrency
