What Drives Cryptocurrency Value

Why the Bitcoin Price Fall

On May 12, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics announced a higher-than-expected year-over-year inflation rate of 4.2 percent for April, as I discussed in a recent article. Worries of inflation can drive investors away from cryptocurrencies into gold, often regarded as an inflation hedge.

Also on May 12, Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, announced that Tesla would no longer be accepting bitcoin for vehicle purchases, citing environmental concerns.

On May 19, China banned financial institutions and payment firms from providing cryptocurrency services.

In general, we tend to see different risk-on/risk-off settings. In risk-on settings, investors tend to perceive the general riskiness of investments to be low — perhaps related to an extended period of rising prices — and are more willing to take on more risk in investments. Alternatively, in risk-off settings, investors become more risk averse and tend to shun any risky investments. We seem to be moving toward more of a risk-off setting now, which can drive prices lower.

Once a trend starts, we need to be mindful of a snowball effect. Any investors who borrowed to make cryptocurrency bets may be facing margin calls and might be forced to unwind their positions, bolstering the fall in prices.

What is the goal of this portfolio? 

The “Top Ten Crypto” portfolio is a democratically proportioned portfolio balanced based on votes from members of the RSC community as to what they believe are the top 10 projects by potential.
This portfolio should be much more useful given the ever-changing market dynamics. In short, you rank the projects you believe deserve a spot in the top 10. It should represent a portfolio and rank that you believe will stand the test of time. Once we have a good cross-section, we can study and make an assessment as to where we see value and perhaps where some diamonds in the rough opportunities exist. In a perfect world, we will end up with a Pareto-style distribution that describes the largest value capture in the market.
To give an update on the position, each one listed in low to high relative risk:
SoV/money == BTC, DCR
Platforms == ETH, XTZ
Private Money == XMR / ZEC / ZEN
DeFi == MKR / SNX and stablecoins
It is the most realistic way for us to distill the entirety of what we have learned (and that includes the RSC community opinion). We have an array of articles that have gradually picked off one by one different projects, some of which end up being many thousands of words to come to this conclusion. It is not capitulation because we all remain in the market. It is simply a consolidation of quality. We seek the cream of the crop as the milk turns sour on aggregate.
