DeFi Deep Dive - What is SuperFarm?

Written By Ivan on Tech

Jan 29, 2021

SuperFarm is a decentralized DeFi protocol, complete with a cross-chain platform for NFT farming, and it promotes token utility. That might sound like a mouthful, but don't worry. If you're new to crypto, we'll explain what all of that means. And since we know all about the many decentralized finance (DeFi) platforms and protocols out there, we'll also explain what makes SuperFarm different.

But before we do, let's look at the traditional options a crypto speculator has after investing. There are only two when it comes right down to it - sell or hold. And many times, when a speculator gets involved early, the project launches without a product. That means its token has no immediate use case. Because the period between the token sale and product delivery can take a long time, the only option for investors in these situations is to “grind their teeth” and wait it out.

What is SuperFarm?

However, with the introduction of DeFi, there is a third solution besides "sell or...

Altcoin Season - Exploring Alt Seasons and Crypto Market Cycles

Written By Ivan on Tech

Jan 27, 2021

Altcoin Season seems to be upon us - but what is it? As Bitcoin takes a breather, attention is turning to lesser-known cryptocurrencies. Much of the crypto market is still poised, ready to take advantage of a drop in Bitcoin dominance. The cryptocurrency market often revolves around the sentiment towards Bitcoin. However, Altcoin Season, or “Alt Season” as it is commonly referred to, is when investment into cryptocurrency flows more heavily into altcoins than into Bitcoin. Altcoins are often more volatile than Bitcoin, which can be great for the savvy-trader looking to make some tasty gains. However, this volatility can result in a one-way trip to Rekt City for the naive crypto investor. Although navigating the Altcoin Forest can be treacherous at times, it is also one of the most exciting places to be!

In this article, we’re going to explore the broader cryptocurrency space beyond Bitcoin, and the cycles that move the market. Also, we’re going to look at why...

US Crypto Taxes 2021: What You Need to Know

Written By Ivan on Tech

Jan 25, 2021

For many years, crypto taxes have remained a relatively obscure subject to many. During blockchain technology and crypto’s infancy, cryptocurrency adoption was still relatively low. As such, regulatory scrutiny was almost non-existent. As the popularity and adoption of cryptocurrency increased, so too did governments’ interests in taxing this burgeoning asset class. With Bitcoin’s 2020 bull run still fresh in mind, it should come as no surprise that interest in US crypto taxes has increased in recent months. This has prompted concern among crypto investors, as many have little education around the subject. If you are unable to know your potential tax obligations, you could end up facing severe punishments, resulting in a loss of your crypto earnings. Therefore, learning how to calculate US crypto taxes and understanding Form 8949 has never been more important.

In this article, we’re going to dive into US crypto taxes, and what they mean for you as an...
