Some of the first people to ever chart Bitcoin were part of a group called BullBear Analytics. Two of those analysts, Mr. A and Mr. W, are now part of our team at The Crypto Vigilante (SUBSCRIBE).
In real-time, these guys witnessed Satoshi Nakamoto posting in the BitcoinTalk forums, so their perspective is uniquely informed.
TCV Crypto Market Technician Mr. A recently joined the Rice Crypto Show for his first public interview outside The Crypto Vigilante (SUBSCRIBE). The show covered everything from BTC technical analysis and predictions to privacy coins and regulations. They also discussed theories about the identity of Satoshi, Bitcoin’s creator.
Mr. A is a former network and security consultant with a degree in molecular biology. He has been a Bitcoin miner, investor, and trader since 2012 and is an early Monero (XMR) and Pirate Chain (ARRR) adopter. Notably, he has also performed as a DJ at many popular music festivals.
What I appreciate most about Mr. A is that he is very grounded; he always points to what the market says over theory – and what the market props up most is BTC. Mr. A considers himself a store-of-value maximalist, not a BTC maximalist. If BTC ceases to be a reliable store-of-value, it is logical to move to the most viable alternative.
This store-of-value maximalism philosophy has a curious interplay with privacy coins. While privacy coins offer advantages, if their value drops by 50%, that reduces confidence. Mr. A currently recommends that a majority of any long-term portfolio be BTC, as the market moves through several cycles.
Watch the whole show here:
“The [Bitcoin] white paper itself is so elegant, and its complexity is simple,” says Mr. A. “It is such a beautiful thing that it’s practically alien technology.”
