3 Moments in History that Explain the ICO Bubble Hacker Noon research The technologies that enable bubbles are always new, but the underlying social dynamics are not.

Bitcoin Futures Volumes Paradigm Derivatives Tracking activity, volumes and positioning in regulated crypto futures markets The introduction of regulated futures markets for Bitcoin was a widely anticipated and overhyped event. Difficult to argue there was no impact on the price from the introduction of a derivative instrument designed to provide traders with the ability to short and bet against the price of Bitcoin. As markets mature, the ability to hedge using futures will likely see the overall market continue to grow. | Keywords: cme, derivatives, futures, contract, swap, options, hedge, institutional, cftc, cboe, trading, volume

BTC MVRV Ratio Paradigm Network Value Exploring network valuation using MVRV MVRV is a simple ratio to measure network value using a novel metric for traditional market cap called Realised Cap. MVRV = Market Cap / Realised Cap. It can be useful for getting a sense of when the exchange traded price is below “fair value” or even as an indicator for potential cycle tops and bottoms. | Keywords: realised cap, market cap, valuation, metric
BTC Pricing Value Models Paradigm Network Value Evaluating novel metrics for Bitcoin valuation Bitcoin continues to defy and break most convential models across pricing, growth, trend, econometrics, epidemiological and more. Perspective and context are always valuable in these exercises especially when they can help frame it all in the same consumable dimension.

Emerging Markets Bitcoin Volumes Paradigm Global Adoption Tracking Bitcoin activity and usage in volatile emerging markets While growth trends of Bitcoin usage in emerging markets are more difficult to discern than the headlines would indicate, the clearest activity patterns emerge as spikes in reaction to local regulatory announcements.

Feedback Cycles between Socia Economic Signals in the Bitcoin Economy ETH Zurich research We quantify four socio-economic signals about Bitcoin from large datasets: price on online exchanges, volume of word-of-mouth communication in online social media, volume of information search and user base growth.
