The Digitex Futures Exchange is a trading platform where traders can buy and sell futures contracts on various cryptocurrencies, commodities and financial instruments. Traders win and lose DGTX tokens. Traders must have a balance of DGTX to place trades which creates demand for DGTX. There are zero transaction fees on all trades. Zero-fee trading attracts highly active, ultra-short term traders who create highly liquid markets using strategies not viable on fee charging exchanges. Large tick sizes level the playing field between human traders and bots.
Good luck :uhoh:

Crypto is interesting. Cryptocurrency isn't.

Several former colleagues went to a blockchain startup a couple of years ago. I told them it was all bullshit and had no obvious use cases outside of bitcoin. They were all gone within 9 months.

P.S. I used to work with Whit Diffie (for a broad interpretation of work)

You can smell my jalopy! I similarly got involved with a blockchain startup but we stuck, by focusing on industrial processes.

Any chance it will revive?

I’ve got an old boss of mine now 60 staff into a tokenisation project. I am worried.

Interesting question. Blockchain for industry [without tokens] is a work in progress. It had the wind taken out of its sails by the currency swings but that's an emotional roadblock. It's the best data store for immutable data. By using blockchain, a data owner can make their case in court using the laws of mathematics.

On currencies, bimbo I have frankly no idea. Digital currencies are the future of money but the current landscape is a mess. I wouldn't bet on it either way. My expectation is that a better cryptocurrency will emerge that makes the others obsolete, except as fungible tokens in transactions like carbon trading.

Sell it at 17,000 then. Either way this squeeze Is based on boarding up America’s high street. When Biden win the big guys will sell off again.

I’m sure those that care are aware BTC has comfortably passed its ATH and is close to 21k. Next year should be interesting.

I was very sceptical during the last peak a few years back but am more convinced now. Bought in about 5 weeks back. Up 30%. Would be more if I hadn't over traded switching between coins

You don't think there are other companies contemplating moving cash reserves into BTC?

Yes I do and yes there are. Your post was vague and could have been interpreted in various ways given his history.

Pretty good chance that some alts will ride the back of this.

Pretty good chance their gains will be even more.

There is a lot of smoke and mirrors in crypto. Bitcoin isn't smoke and mirrors though.

Tether don't even try and pretend they aren't a scam. 20bn market, 60bn volume of trades in a day, so every coin moved three times on average. Nuts. Just Btc and a small bit of ETH for me. Some aave or yearn occasionally when they are on a run

I don't give a flying fook if its organic. We are on a gold rush. I can afford to lose the money if it does go tits up. However I don't think I can afford to miss the boat if it keeps going which I think it will

You were saying the same thing 3 years ago. This is institutional investment, FOMO from the public will kick in again within the next 6-18 months.

You sound like the Irish crying over Australian real estate.
