#DAO #CryptoLingo Little late w/ the text transcript on this one from yesterday. Was busy hanging out with family. Here is the video in text The Breakdown: - "A decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) is an organization that runs on a blockchain protocol fully and autonomously in accordance with rules encoded via smart contracts." (Cryptopedia) - "A properly executed DAO aligns the incentivesSee more
#WashSaleRule #InvestopediaCliffNotes If you are wanting to utilize Tax Loss Harvesting to make the most of an investment that went south ... you best be very familiar with the Wash Sale Rule if you want to count your losses against capital gains or income. The Breakdown: - Rule created by Internal Revenue Services (IRS) to keep people from artificially realizing losses for tax deduction purposes bSee more
#DAO #CryptoLingo If you missed my post from yesterday on What is a #Fork ? You might find it helpful to better understand how the creation of a DAO and its eventual hack led to the split of $ETH and $ETC . You might also find it interesting to learn more about the Constitution DAO as they recently made news as they attempted to attempted to purchase a copy of the US Constitution but was ultimately outbiSee more
#BlockchainScalability #CryptoLingo So Crypto will only be as successful as its ability to scale up along with the rate of growth and user adoption. There will be an inflection point in adoption, but if the blockchain network is unable to handle the traffic and increased throughput ... things could get awkward. The crypto markets have not been kind this week and from my understanding it is the resulSee more
#AMM #AutomatedMarketMaker #CryptoLingo So building on a #LiquidityPool from yesterday we learn about the automated market maker. Again my knowledge on this field is strictly theoretical and so I am relying on those w/in the community that are familiar with this process to share their knowledge and insight in the comments below 👇 The Breakdown:See more
#Metaverse #CryptoMetaverse #CryptoLingo So I've decided to attempt to invest in the metaverse both within the stock market and the crypto market. While I think it is intriguing from a VR and gaming side of things ... from a mental health and physical health perspective I have some serious concerns and reservations. That being said I do plan to invest in it and hope to see it grow responsibly ... mySee more
#dAPP #CryptoLingo So learning about dAPP was probably the final aha moment that convinced me to take crypto a little more seriously. Not to say that all things are going to be worth investing your hard earned money, but more to say that I am trying to be selective about investing my money in certain projects that I feel are credible and could potentially add value. Up next week is back to See more
#DEX #DecentralizedExchange #CryptoLingo Again I am asking you all to help with the quality of this post by sharing your knowledge and experience. I have never used a DEX but I am now intrigued. I'm literally equipped with a knowledge of a brief review of Investopedia and Cryptopedia ... I know not of practical pitfalls or mishaps. Hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and just wanted to say that I apSee more
#CEX #CentralizedExchange #CryptoLingo Please help build out the quality of the post by sharing your experience and insight with the different CEX in the comments. I primarily use Coinbase Pro to buy and push to Coinbase to earn interest or hold. I recently started Gemini to also buy and stake but didn't like the fees ... turns out they have an Gemini Active Trader one similar to Coinbase Pro where fSee more
#GasFee #CryptoLingo So imagine you have gone back in time and are starting to invest in the stock market when trade fees existed ... essentially that is what a Gas Fee is when it comes to buying/selling/moving your funds. Then there is also the analogy of ETH blockchain as a toll fee road that you are wanting to use. You pick ... The Breakdown: - "Gas refers to the fee, or pricing value, requiredSee more
#ICO #CryptoLingo So I have never done an ICO before but I have invested in a one pre-IPO which was $HOOD and then a few IPOs. The process for an IPO is far more rigorous and scrutinized than an ICO so these are definitely not to be done without a serious amount of due diligence. I'm sure by now that you have seen the news on the Squid Game Token ... morale of the story is to be skeptical of ICOs. TSee more
#CryptoWallet #CryptoLingo So I barely can remember my passwords for the stuff I use on the regular ... I don't know if I could trust myself with a non-custodial wallet. Next week will be my final full week of Crypto and then I'm looking forward to starting a mixed bag of content from technical to fundamental analysis w/ crypto sprinkled in. While I think the addition of crypto and accessibility wasSee more
#BlockchainGovernance #CryptoLingo So after yesterday it is worth repeating that I am NOT an expert in Crypto ... I am just trying to learn and get up to speed as quickly as possible. I make these posts as I learn and share w/ whomever is interested. My journey into learning crypto has taught me that a lot of conventional tools that you use for evaluating stocks is probably still applicable to CryptSee more
#WhitePaper #CryptoLingo Trust but verify. Crypto is new and there will be Ponzi schemes and so if it sounds to be good to be true ... well be skeptical. There are alt coins that are probably pump and dump schemes. If you don't really understand it ... well then probably ok to go ahead and avoid that investment for the time being. Nothing wrong with sticking to the big 2 w/ BTC and ETH until you areSee more
#WelcomeToPublic I wanted to take a minute and say welcome to all the new faces and people that have since joined Public! You stumbled onto an incredible community where if you are receptive ... you can make friends, network, and learn from a bunch of people you will likely never meet face to face. I started the end of June 2021 and honestly I am still floored by how many new friends and relationshSee more
#Staking #CryptoLingo Investing in crypto is probably new to most retail investors and many don't know where to start or what apps to use. Would love to hear about some of your horror stories and pitfalls so that the community as a whole can learn from other people's mistakes. No sense reinventing those pitfalls ... The Breakdown: - "Staking is the process through which a blockchain network user 'sSee more
