Declare that crypto will never be a currency https://www.intersindicalrtvv.com/declare-that-crypto-will-never-be-a-currency/ Mon, 29 Nov 2021 07:45:26 +0000 https://www.intersindicalrtvv.com/declare-that-crypto-will-never-be-a-currency/ Suppose you and I enter into a private contract in which I sell you a digital version of the famous Mother India board by MF Husain and you pay me 100 Ethereums (cryptocurrency). In a free society, as consenting adults, we can enter into any agreement to transact in private property. What should a digital version of Husain’s painting be worth or whether this transaction should be done in Ethereums or gold or whatever should ideally not be of concern to the government.

But if you later realize that what I sold you is just a picture of Husain’s painting, taken without permission, or that the value of the Ethereums you paid was multiplied by 50 and you paid too much, then the state should step in and provide recourse for you?

This is the crux of the cryptocurrency debate. Cryptocurrencies, despite the name, cannot be “currencies”. Money, by definition, is about trust that cannot be replaced by “cool” technology. When the Indian currency was suddenly demonetized overnight, it was the confidence people placed in their currency that was shaken, the effects of which still persist. Even though it may indulge in reckless experiments with the national currency, the state should still not give up its sovereign right to issue currency. This state-backed currency should serve as the primary medium of exchange in any society.

By now, the world has realized the dangers of letting engineers run wild with their decentralized ‘peer to peer’ technological disruptions such as Facebook, WhatsApp and other social media tools that have created deep mistrust and havoc. in the society. A trusted currency with sovereign backing is the cornerstone of modern society, and it cannot be replaced by distributed and decentralized token technology without causing major social upheaval.

If cryptocurrencies are not legalized as a currency, then why ban them? Banning an unrecognized medium of exchange is neither feasible nor useful. If two parties still want to transact using eclectic objects with full knowledge that they are not a valid medium of exchange, then the state does not need to intervene in that transaction.

A ban will only make these transactions underground, making it even more difficult to track and control them when needed, such as sports betting.

Which still leaves the question of giving recourse to people who could have been swindled in blockchain transactions. It is tempting to bring up the idea of ​​a new government regulator to monitor the abuse of private transactions and protect those affected. But establishing a new regulator for cryptocurrencies can trigger what economists call a moral hazard problem. It risks sending a deceptive signal to a supervisory authority to protect its losses, thus prompting more people to speculate on things that will never be recognized as a legitimate medium of exchange. In other words, putting in place a new regulator for oversight and remediation can stimulate speculative cryptocurrency trading rather than curbing it under the pretext that there is now an investor protection authority.

The other idea launched is to treat cryptocurrencies as “assets” for the purposes of taxation and tax on trading gains in cryptocurrencies in order to curb speculation. Again, this risks legitimizing what should be strictly unrecognized private activity. People trading cryptocurrencies with each other in a private market should be treated the same as people trading face masks with each other – at their own risk and outside the realm of government support or intervention.

It is said that there are 15 million investors trading billions of dollars in cryptocurrencies in India. There is no sanctity in these numbers. This is simply an estimate provided by one of the many private crypto companies. Either way, it is clear that the only reason people choose to invest or speculate in cryptocurrencies today is in the hope that their price will increase in the future. And the hope of an increase in the prices of cryptos depends on the ultimate hope that they will be recognized as a valid medium of exchange, which will increase the demand for cryptocurrencies. Once it is well established that cryptos will never be legal tender in India, then business activity in these is expected to decrease significantly over time.

Communicating clearly and loudly to everyone that cryptocurrencies will not be recognized as currency or as a medium of exchange in India may be the best option to curb the cryptocurrency frenzy. While this is not a medium of exchange, it is not clear that cryptocurrencies have any value. This realization will quickly be felt among investors looking for easy money and eventually lead to a correction. Anything else such as putting in place a regulator or taxing earnings can be counterproductive and a dime a dozen. Sure, some investors can lose money, but that’s the risk of greed for a quick buck.

There is a lot of talk about a bill presented in the next session of Parliament to ban, regulate or tax cryptocurrencies. Since there is no draft bill in the public domain, speculation about the content of the bill is as frantic as the trading of crypto exchanges. A more serene analysis will reveal that the best action is not to overreact but to simply declare that India will never recognize cryptocurrencies.

India Paytm Seven’s Net Loss Widens, Says It Maintains Growth Momentum https://www.intersindicalrtvv.com/india-paytm-sevens-net-loss-widens-says-it-maintains-growth-momentum/ Sat, 27 Nov 2021 15:03:00 +0000 https://www.intersindicalrtvv.com/india-paytm-sevens-net-loss-widens-says-it-maintains-growth-momentum/

NEW DELHI, Nov. 27 (Reuters) – India’s One 97 Communications Ltd (PAYT.NS), parent company of fintech company Paytm, said on Saturday that its net loss for the three months through September was expanded by 8.4% as spending increased.

Paytm, which reports profits for the first time since its stock market debut this month, reported a consolidated net loss of 4.74 billion rupees ($ 63.2 million) against 4.37 billion rupees during from the same period a year earlier.

Revenue increased 49.7% to 11.35 billion rupees.

“We have maintained the growth momentum of our payment services business, aggressively developed our financial services business and are on track to achieve pre-COVID volumes for Commerce and Cloud services,” Paytm said in a statement. communicated.

Paytm, which counts Chinese group Ant and Japanese group SoftBank Corp (9984.T) among its backers, raised $ 2.5 billion this month in the largest initial public offering (IPO) in India, but made a dismal start on the stock market last week.

The title has recovered part of its losses but remains 17% below its issue price.

“Paytm faces serious challenges in its customer acquisition engine, which would slow its revenue growth in the basic payments industry,” brokerage firm JM Financial said in a note to clients a day before. Paytm profits. “We find the valuations rich and the path to profitability strewn with high execution risks in the context.”

The company said the gross value of its merchandise from transactions other than a state-backed peer-to-peer payments network, commonly known as UPI, increased 52% in the quarter compared to the previous year. last year.

Paytm competes with Google (GOOGL.O) and Walmart Inc (WMT.N) PhonePe in the Indian digital payments market, and all of these companies offer peer-to-peer payments on UPI.

The company said it was “well funded” with a cash equivalent and an investable balance of Rs 110 billion, including through the IPO.

Founder and CEO Vijay Shekhar Sharma said investors will need time to understand the business of the company.

“Some of the positions in our payments business are not only generating profits, but also free cash flow,” Sharma said on a call to investors. “Our revenues and contribution margins are increasing thanks to the payments and financial services business where payment itself is the primary driver. “

Its commerce, cloud and financial services businesses had huge potential to make more money for the company, said Madhur Deora, chief financial officer of Paytm Group.

Paytm has had “a tremendous opportunity to increase payments” as a means of acquiring more customers and merchants, added Sharma.

Founded in 2010 as a platform to add credit to mobile phones, Paytm grew rapidly after US ridesharing company Uber Technologies Inc (UBER.N) listed it as a fast payment option. in India. Its use surged in 2016 when India suddenly banned high-value banknotes, spurring digital payments.

Paytm, headquartered on the outskirts of the capital New Delhi, offers services such as merchant payments, insurance and gold sales, movie and flight ticketing, as well as bank deposits and remittances.

Bitcoin Bulls May Lose $ 365 Million When Friday’s BTC Options Expire https://www.intersindicalrtvv.com/bitcoin-bulls-may-lose-365-million-when-fridays-btc-options-expire/ Thu, 25 Nov 2021 22:23:31 +0000 https://www.intersindicalrtvv.com/bitcoin-bulls-may-lose-365-million-when-fridays-btc-options-expire/

Bitcoins (BTC) Price action was not bullish despite an all-time high of $ 69,000 on November 10. Some argue that the descending channel formed 40 days ago is the dominant trend, and $ 56,000 is its current resistance.

Such a drop follows close scrutiny by U.S. regulators, after a November 1 report by the president’s financial markets task force suggested that stablecoin issuers in the United States should be subject to “appropriate federal oversight”, similar to banks and savings associations.

On November 12, the Bitcoin-backed exchange-traded fund (ETF) request was rejected by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. To justify the refusal, the regulator cited the lack of capacity of its participants to deter fraud and market manipulation in Bitcoin trading.

Most recently, on November 23, the chairman of the US Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs sent notices to several exchanges and stablecoin issuers. Consumer questions and investor protection on stablecoins suggest that lawmakers can prepare for a hearing on the matter.

Still, the bulls might have a different take on this news, as stablecoins are in no way necessary for Bitcoin to work. In addition, there is little the US government can do to suppress projects and developers wishing to relocate outside of its jurisdiction.

Bitcoin options are mostly bullish for the November 26 expiration

Despite falling 17% in the past 14 days from an all-time high of $ 69,000, Bitcoin’s call (call) options largely dominate the November 26 expiration.

At first glance, the $ 1.9 billion in call (call) options dominate the weekly expiration by 113% versus the $ 885 million in put (put) instruments. But the call-to-put ratio of 2.13 is misleading as the recent drop will likely wipe out 90% of bullish bets.

For example, if the price of Bitcoin stays below $ 58,000 at 8:00 a.m. UTC on November 26, only $ 150 million of those call (buy) options will be available upon expiration. There is no value in the right to buy Bitcoin at $ 60,000 or $ 70,000 if it is trading below that price.

Bears can earn $ 365 million under $ 56,000

Below are the four most likely scenarios based on the current price action. For example, the data shows how many contracts will be available on November 26 for both bullish (call) and bearish (put) instruments. The imbalance in favor of each side represents the theoretical gain:

  • Below $ 56,000: 720 calls against 7,490 puts. Net income favors options downward (put) by $ 365 million.
  • Between $ 56,000 and $ 58,000: 2,630 calls versus 4,840 put options. The net result is $ 125 million in favor of bearish instruments (put).
  • Between $ 58,000 and $ 60,000: 3,600 calls against 3,850 put options. The net result is balanced.
  • Between $ 60,000 and $ 62,000: 6,180 calls against 2,340 put options. The net result moves in favor of call instruments (bull) of 230 million dollars.

This raw estimate considers call options used in bullish bets and put options exclusively in neutral to bearish trades. However, a trader could have sold a call option, thereby gaining negative exposure to Bitcoin above a specific price. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to estimate this effect.

Bulls Have Twice the Incentives to Defend $ 56,000

As the 40-day descending channel indicates, the bulls need to hold the resistance of $ 56,000 to avoid losing further momentum. Keep in mind that it took less than two weeks to bring Bitcoin down from $ 41,500 to $ 56,000 on October 10. Therefore, maintaining this level is crucial to validate the November 10 record.

Moreover, if the bulls manage to push the price of Bitcoin above $ 58,000, it will save them a potential loss of $ 365 million if the BTC bears gain the upper hand on the backs of regulatory winds. A mere 1.5% drop from the current $ 56,800 could give bears just enough confidence to instill even more pain.

Nonprofits Accept Cryptocurrency As Bitcoin and Ether Values ​​Rise – Is It A Fad or the Next Frontier? https://www.intersindicalrtvv.com/nonprofits-accept-cryptocurrency-as-bitcoin-and-ether-values-%e2%80%8b%e2%80%8brise-is-it-a-fad-or-the-next-frontier/ Mon, 22 Nov 2021 15:29:42 +0000 https://www.intersindicalrtvv.com/nonprofits-accept-cryptocurrency-as-bitcoin-and-ether-values-%e2%80%8b%e2%80%8brise-is-it-a-fad-or-the-next-frontier/
The new cryptocurrency donation website at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

As Bitcoin and Ether values ​​near record highs, US nonprofits are in the peak months of their annual fundraising. Some charities hope to bring these two events together to increase the coffers that have took a hit during the pandemic.

This fall, Pacific Northwest nonprofits, including the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and Marie’s place, an organization that supports homeless women and families, has started accepting donations of cryptocurrency directly.

While still in its early stages, the response so far has been muted: Fred Hutch reports two crypto giveaways, and Mary’s Place is working on the details with a donor who offers an “important match.” – in regular dollars – for crypto donations received during the next Donation Tuesday Event. 501 Commons, the nonprofit that hosts the GivingTuesday and GiveBIG events in Washington, said few nonprofits in the state directly accept crypto at this point.

“It’s brand new. In the world of philanthropy, things take a while, ”said Kelly O’Brien, vice president of philanthropy for Fred Hutch.

But the change is coming as cryptocurrencies become more and more mainstream.

“It’s brand new. In the world of philanthropy, things take time.

A new Pew Research Center A survey found that 86% of Americans say they have heard of crypto and 16% have traded or used blockchain money.

The crypto-philanthropy industry has also grown. The Giving Block and Engiven, two of the most popular crypto donation platforms, both launched in 2018 and a leading philanthropic news site published crypto user manual articles that year.

Three years later, The Giving Block expects to facilitate cryptocurrency donations directly to charities totaling between $ 100 million and $ 150 million, according to co-founder Pat Duffy. The platform also makes it possible to contribute to Donor Advised Funds (DAF), accounts from which people make charitable donations. The largest DAF that Duffy’s startup is working with is set to receive $ 500 million in crypto in 2021.

Fidelity Charitable, a leading provider of DAF, has received over $ 274 million in cryptocurrency contributions so far this year, nearly four times the amount in 2017, according to the Associated Press.

There are “a lot more people and money in crypto, so as the ecosystem grows the donation pool grows, the donor base grows,” Duffy said.

Call for crypto philanthropy

There is a big advantage in giving away crypto. If a donor makes a direct donation of cryptocurrency, they avoid paying a capital gains tax that would be incurred if they first sold the currency and then made the donation. And they still get the tax deduction for charitable donations.

“We want to give our donors options that are right for them,” said Linda Mitchell, spokesperson for Mary’s Place. “As services that accept and convert cryptocurrency become more and more mainstream, it is easy and safe for us to provide this option to the community to support our work. “

Fred hutch uses The Giving Block technology to manage donations, while Marie’s place uses Engiven.

A survey Last summer, Fidelity Charitable found that more than half of cryptocurrency holders didn’t know they could donate digital money, and many didn’t realize it was legal to do so. Almost half of those who donated said it was difficult to find charities that accepted crypto.

The cryptocurrency donation site at Mary’s Place.

David Beitel, CTO of Seattle’s Zillow Group, is also a Fred Hutch donor. He and his wife Joanna match donations, crypto and more, made at the center until the end of the year. He is a fan of alternative currency.

“It’s nice to see charities and businesses and businesses starting to embrace crypto as a currency,” Beitel said. “Along with having a growing supply and base of personal holdings, many have seen significant gains in their crypto holdings, so it’s nice to be able to unlock that money for trading and contributions.”

Reduce the risk

Despite the growing acceptance of cryptocurrency, there are still concerns about digital funds.

Critics call the environmental impacts of blockchains that mine the coins. Digiconomist calculates the energy and carbon footprint of blockchain networks and currently places Bitcoin’s energy consumption on par with the nation of Thailand.

Crypto proponents, however, question the fairness of the comparisons and note that traditional financial systems have their own significant energy consumption.

There are also concerns about the risks associated with digital funds. The head of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission this summer called the cryptocurrency market the “Wild West” and called for new regulations.

Duffy said that was a misconception and that his platform only trades cryptocurrencies listed by Gemini, a regulated U.S. company that reviews various options and operates a crypto exchange.

Most charities reduce the risks associated with the volatility of cryptocurrencies by immediately converting them to cash.

O’Brien said this was true for the Fred Hutch, wherever the donation is crypto, stocks, property or other assets, it is quickly turned into cash and distributed to support research.

“Our donors want their money to go straight to work,” she said.

The finances of crypto-philanthropy

Each year, philanthropic groups across the country ask donors to contribute on GivingTuesday, the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, which falls on November 30 of this year.

For the first time, GivingTuesday donors will be able to donate through the Washington State Portal managed by 501 Commons and via The Giving Block’s Crypto giving Tuesday to place. Donations made to either site will go to specific charities.

Nancy Long, Executive Director of 501 Commons, accepts donations through both platforms. Charities are struggling financially, she said, and a University of Washington study confirms this. Last year, nonprofits saw their funding decreases by 30% while the demand for many services increased.

Long, however, questions the impacts of the financial industry that thrives around philanthropy, including CFOs and crypto donations. She is worried about the loss of taxpayers’ money and the diversion of money to CFOs. Donors get a tax benefit from DAF contributions, even if the money stays in accounts indefinitely instead of going to nonprofits. An estimated $ 160 billion is tied up in DAF’s assets, According to research.

But if crypto donations “go to charities and those charities quickly convert them to cash, that’s great,” Long said.

Search by Fidelity Charitable found that crypto holders were more likely to make charitable donations than other investors. Duffy of The Giving Block says charities are starting to intentionally court people. For him, this makes sense: new tools make it easier to make and track crypto donations, it provides tax benefits, and its upward and downward volatility seems to inspire donations.

“It’s almost like it was done in a lab for charitable giving,” Duffy said.

Crypto is not a currency – rather it is a stock option https://www.intersindicalrtvv.com/crypto-is-not-a-currency-rather-it-is-a-stock-option/ Sat, 20 Nov 2021 13:30:00 +0000 https://www.intersindicalrtvv.com/crypto-is-not-a-currency-rather-it-is-a-stock-option/

Crypto is a new class of asset. We call cryptocurrencies “coins” so a lot of people don’t know why someone would buy a coin when it is quite difficult to use it to make a purchase. Maybe one day in the future we can buy a steak dinner with our crypto earnings. But right now, you can’t do that. Law?

Well, let’s do a thought experiment. Say you walk into a Outback Steakhouse, and you have an appointment. You are currently in between jobs, but you are making money with all your crypto investments and you want to celebrate. So you two have a wonderful dinner, and then the bill comes in. You take out your smartphone and ask: “do you take Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC)? ”And the server says,“ No, this is the Outback. You have to pay in dollars, mate. “

Image source: Getty Images

So what are you doing? You say, “Oh. Okay.” And you press a few buttons on your smartphone. And your broker, Coinbase (NASDAQ: COIN), operates 24/7. So you sell Bitcoin for $ 100, which turns into cash. Then you press a few more buttons and transfer your money to your bank account. And you pay the bill in dollars.

So, did crypto pay for the steak dinner? Yes, he did, but not directly.

It doesn’t matter whether a restaurant accepts crypto or not

When my car died earlier this year, I had to buy a new one. I own shares in Carvana So this is where I decided to buy. (By the way, amazing customer service – I’m a very satisfied customer.) One thing I did not to do – they would have thought I was crazy – was to try to pay for my car with my shares in Carvana. I had to sell my shares on my brokerage account and wait three days to get my money back.

The major crypto exchanges are much, much faster than the exchanges. If I tried to pay for a steak dinner with my Carvana shares, that would be a really embarrassing conversation. If I said “I’ll have the money on Wednesday,” I would do the dishes in the kitchen.

Crypto right now looks a lot like gold, silver, or a company’s stocks. It may not (yet) be considered a currency. But it’s certainly a valuable asset, and it can be turned into dollars. And crypto exchanges are so fast – and they operate around the clock – that Bitcoin’s failure to actually serve as currency (again) is almost meaningless. You can turn it into dollars in a matter of minutes.

What if crypto becomes worthless?

Personally, I think a lot of cryptocurrencies are worthless, just like a lot of stocks are worthless. But Bitcoin has a market cap of $ 1.1 trillion. It is the opposite of worthless.

Of course, it could be overvalued, and it probably is. (A lot of stocks are also overvalued.) Bitcoin has already seen at least two serious crashes. I’m sure he will have more. High-end stocks are also often volatile. Why would crypto be any different?

Bitcoin Price Table

Bitcoin price given by YCharts.

Bitcoin almost hit $ 20,000 at the end of 2017, then plunged below $ 10,000, and it stayed there for a while. And then, in the fall of 2020, Pay Pal announced that it will allow people to buy and sell crypto on Venmo. And Square said he was buying Bitcoin. These two announcements from the giants of the fintech world sent the coin into the stratosphere.

Why is crypto valuable?

All value is based on supply and demand. The incredible wealth that some people have gained from crypto makes other people take the risk that other types of crypto might do the same.

Something similar was common in the dot-com era of the late 90s. An internet startup would pay people minimum wage (or whatever small amount of money they could get by) and encourage people to work in exchange for stock options in the company. If the business was successful, you would be a millionaire when your options were vested, potentially selling them for a lot of money. More often than not, the options ended up being worthless.

Crypto is really like that. A tech start-up working on blockchain technology may have very little money. But it can make some very smart people work for her by paying them with the company coin. If the coin seems to be successful, other people will want to own it as well. And so a company does everything in its power to drive up the price of the part. Indeed, the coin is a mechanism to pay the software engineers and others who bet on this start-up.

When you buy the company coin, of course you do not own any company stock. It is a private company (or sometimes even some non-profit entity). But the entrepreneurs who started the business really want the coin to rise in value (because they own a lot, a lot more than you).

Crypto is an optional blockchain investment

Once you realize how revolutionary blockchain technology is, it flips the switch on risk. If you research this industry, you will find that blockchain is going to disrupt huge, multi-billion dollar companies. Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) could be in trouble, for example (again).

In the 20th century, the internet radically changed the technological balance of power away from Microsoft and its control of the office. Microsoft has survived and thrived by becoming a powerhouse in the cloud. And now peer-to-peer networks threaten that dominance as well. And it’s not just tech companies, blockchain can revolutionize many industries, including major sectors of the economy like healthcare and finance.

I wouldn’t want to ignore the blockchain race or pretend it’s irrelevant. If you have big investments in the current paradigm, do you really want to ignore all of these disruptors?

This article represents the opinion of the author, who may disagree with the “official” recommendation position of a premium Motley Fool consulting service. We are heterogeneous! Challenging an investment thesis – even one of our own – helps us all to think critically about investing and make decisions that help us become smarter, happier, and richer.

Still on Osinbajo’s call to float the naira https://www.intersindicalrtvv.com/still-on-osinbajos-call-to-float-the-naira/ https://www.intersindicalrtvv.com/still-on-osinbajos-call-to-float-the-naira/#respond Sun, 07 Nov 2021 23:12:56 +0000 https://www.intersindicalrtvv.com/still-on-osinbajos-call-to-float-the-naira/

What other options do we have to increase the supply of foreign currency to the Nigerian economy, or do we continue to borrow foreign currency from international lenders to meet the insatiable demand from Nigerians many of whom use the dollar as a store of value?

Nigerians currently have $ 16 billion in their home bank accounts and that does not add the dollar that is held in private fortresses in houses or buried in cemeteries and other strange places, or those held by Nigerians in foreign countries (Pandora Papers).

The main official source of foreign exchange supply in Nigeria remains revenues from crude oil sales, which currently stand at 95%, and with crude oil production falling to 1.4 million barrels per day, from more of two million, which tells you how the forex supply has declined.

Then, if you consider that 450,000 barrels of oil are taken out of that 1.4 million and traded for refined oil, that tells you that 95% of Nigeria’s foreign exchange revenue currently comes from around 950,000 barrels of oil. gross per day.

To make matters worse, the refined oil obtained by trading the 450,000 barrels of crude oil per day is obtained at current international prices but sold in local currency at non-market rates.

This means that from the already depleted revenues from the sale of 950,000 barrels of crude oil per day, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and the federal government must use scarce foreign currency to make up the difference between imported gasoline and the price. to which it is sold locally. .

This leaves the federal government with only one option to maintain the supply of dollars in the local market, the continued borrowing of foreign currency from international lenders at interest to supply the Central Bank of Nigeria, which in its turn. turn, uses this to meet the almost insatiable supply for the forex.

The main unofficial source of foreign exchange in Nigeria remains remittances from Nigerians in the diaspora, and although this ranges from $ 16 billion to $ 23 billion per year, the bulk of this does not go through official channels.

Only those with no options will receive currency inflows today and trade them at the official CBN rate of N 420 instead of the parallel market rate of N 570 to the dollar, and that is why we have over $ 16 billion frozen in residential accounts in Nigerian banks.

Just imagine that the federal government recently borrowed 4 billion euros at an interest rate of 6 or 7%, and which will be used to finance the official Forex market and yet you have over $ 16 billion in bank accounts. homes of Nigerians collecting dust and cobwebs.

Now why isn’t the solution for the federal government to forcibly acquire the $ 16 billion in home bank accounts as some have suggested and the CBN rightly rejected it despite the temptations? , something needs to be done to increase the dollar supply.

When you add currencies stored in Nigerian private homes and other unusual places across the country, and then the extra billions of dollars stashed in offshore locations, the responsibility of any sane government is to come up with measures or policies to increase. the supply of dollars.

We can cry as much as we want over the diversification of the Nigerian economy and for having other sources of dollar currency supply, but this requires long term planning and putting in place the right policies with the will. to make and implement tough decisions.

So, for an import dependent economy where even gasoline which is imported at exorbitant cost and subsidized for sale locally is easily smuggled and sold across the border at considerable profit in neighboring countries, you cannot do a lot.

Only middlemen and those who engage in arbitrage currently benefit from the status quo, even going so far as to buy the forex that Nigeria borrows from international lenders at official interest rates and then sell it to those who have it. need at parallel market rate.

Like the fuel subsidy enjoyed by those who get subsidized gasoline imported at the local market rate only to sell it in neighboring countries at the international market rate, the federal government has a long history of subsidizing the wrong people. ie profiteers and this is what happens with the forex grant.

The same goes for the 13% bypass of crude oil, the intervention of NDDC, the Niger Delta Ministry of Affairs and even the upcoming implementation of the 3% allocation to host communities in under the Petroleum Industry Act of 2021 which was intended for oil-producing communities but which have all been or will soon be hijacked.

So what measures can the federal government take in the short term to dramatically increase the supply of dollars and possibly increase the value of the naira against other foreign currencies? The most obvious is to allow the naira to find its real value against these foreign currencies and in this I agree with Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

This will have the immediate effect of drastically dropping the value of the naira with an impact on the prices of all imported items and negatively affecting those on fixed income, but to let the current situation continue is to end up in the situations. Zimbabwe and Lebanon. .

On the other hand, the floating exchange rate will allow the forex to be sourced from other sources such as those who hold dollars in home bank accounts and safes hidden in private fortresses and forex holdings in offshore sites, aka the Pandora Papers.

In addition, currency inflows from diasporic sources will also become not only official, but also exchanged through official channels, thus ensuring that there is a unified exchange rate and that all transactions incur official fees and taxes.

It will also downplay the arbitrage market, currently the scourge of the growing gap between official and parallel rates that creates overnight millionaires and billionaires who, due to their illegal income, end up failing. pay no tax.

The pressure of being the sole or main currency provider currently supported by the CBN with all its implications and the interference of government officials and the influence exerted by the CBN and bank officials over the allocation of foreign currency will be reduced. considerably.

Relieved of the burden of being the main provider of foreign exchange in the official market, the CBN can then begin to build up its foreign exchange reserves and be able to intervene on the supply side when the opportunity demands to strengthen or weaken the value of the naira.

But floating the naira and leaving it to market demand and supply will require the federal government to do more to increase its foreign exchange supply as well, and since the federal government currently derives 95% of its foreign exchange supply from selling crude oil, what can be done to get a forex increase from this source?

The easiest way would be for the federal government to ask the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries to increase its oil production from 1.4 million barrels of crude oil per day to at least a minimum of, say, 1.9 billion. , a step he recently took. but was rejected by OPEC for the simple fact that Nigeria is not even able to meet its production quota of 1.4 million barrels per day.

Why is this so? What problems are responsible for it? How can these problems be treated? Considering these issues is talk for another day, but suffice it to say that these issues can be identified and addressed to ensure that daily oil production meets but exceeds Nigeria’s OPEC quota.

Taking it a step further, Nigeria will have to ask itself why it remains a member of OPEC and is tied to a daily production quota for a product that the whole world agrees will not be an energy source in 30 years. at age 50 due to climatic conditions. impact of fossil fuels.

Major consumers of fossil fuels are committed to zero carbon emissions and are committed to embracing renewable energy sources. So it makes no sense to have 40 years of oil reserves when in 20 to 30 years these reserves will have little or no value?

Ultimately, the world is in the throes of an energy crisis right now and now is not the time to limit oil production but to increase it and the OPEC philosophy as long as it goes against it. it is not in the interest of Nigeria and its current resort to borrowing from abroad to increase the supply of foreign exchange.

The other problem is that some of the Nigerian joint venture partners have put their oil lands up for sale, especially in coastal and shallow waters, and the key here is Shell Petroleum Development Company which is asking $ 2 billion for its oil assets. seeking to focus solely on its deep water oil production.

To ensure that it can increase its oil production and profit from rising oil prices, the federal government should negotiate directly with Shell and purchase its onshore and shallow water oil areas for an upfront payment of $ 1 billion. dollars per day, the balance being spread over time.

Rather than handing over these oil acreage from Shell to the newly incorporated giant called NNPC Limited, these oil acreage should be turned over to NPDC which should be removed from NNPC Ltd and listed directly on the Nigerian Stock Exchange.

NNPC Ltd is a monster with too many dead assets (refineries and pipelines) and liabilities (pensions and debts), and thus freeing NPDC to focus solely on producing oil and gas for a world that is in the throes of a energy crisis for the foreseeable future will enable the company to operate according to best market practices and enable Nigeria to position a corporate asset for the expected vacuum that will occur as international oil companies shift to sources of energy. alternative energy.

The increase in oil production resulting from the pumping of 3 million barrels of oil per day well in excess of the OPEC quota will allow Nigeria to increase its supply of foreign exchange, increase the value of its local currency and to use the income to propel its young population into the digital technology space.

Friday’s $ 540 million Ethereum options expiration favors traders with $ 5,000 targets https://www.intersindicalrtvv.com/fridays-540-million-ethereum-options-expiration-favors-traders-with-5000-targets/ https://www.intersindicalrtvv.com/fridays-540-million-ethereum-options-expiration-favors-traders-with-5000-targets/#respond Wed, 03 Nov 2021 22:30:57 +0000 https://www.intersindicalrtvv.com/fridays-540-million-ethereum-options-expiration-favors-traders-with-5000-targets/

Ether (ETH) the bulls are probably very happy with the 368% gains accumulated so far in 2021 and it looks like not a day goes by without altcoin hitting a new all-time high.

Even with Ether on track to $ 5,000, there are still many concerns about the network’s ability to absorb the strong demand from the decentralized finance (DeFi) and non-fungible tokens (NFT) industry.

Another potential setback to come is the US Treasury report on stablecoin regulations released on November 1. The report underscored the need for Congress “to provide appropriate federal prudential oversight on a consistent and comprehensive basis.”

In addition to this, competing networks offering interoperability with large DeFi projects are increasingly adopted, both in terms of total locked-in value (TVL) and market share on smart contracts. As an example, this week Solana (SOL) hit a new high of $ 236, overtaking Cardano (ADA) to become the fourth largest cryptocurrency.

According to data from CryptoSlam, secondary sales of Solana NFT Markets reached $ 495 million in the past three months, but despite this, the Ethereum blockchain remains the most popular, with NFT secondary sales exceeding $ 1.76 billion in October.

By managing to stay ahead of the competition and creating a way to solve the scalability problem by migrating to a proof-of-stake network, Ethereum has attracted large investors. This includes the owner of the Dallas Mavericks Marc Cuban, the Houston Firefighters Relief and Retirement Fund, and billionaire Barry Sternlicht.

The expiration of the $ 540 million Ether options on November 5 may seem like an undisputed victory for the Bulls, but that was not the case a few weeks ago.

At first glance, the $ 300 billion put (put) options dominate the weekly expiration by 20% compared to the $ 240 million call (buy) instruments. Still, the 0.80 call-to-put ratio is misleading as the recent rally will likely wipe out most bearish bets.

For example, if the price of Ether remains above $ 4,500 at 8:00 AM UTC on November 5, only $ 1.5 million of those put (put) options will be available upon expiration. There is no value in a right to sell Ether at $ 4,500 if it is trading above that price.

Bulls are comfortable above $ 4,500

Below are the four most likely scenarios for the $ 540 million expiration on November 5. The imbalance in favor of each side represents the theoretical profit. In other words, depending on the expiration price, the amount of buy (buy) and sell (sell) contracts that become active varies:

  • Between $ 4,300 and $ 4,400: 6,870 calls against 6,000 put options. The net result is balanced between bulls and bears.
  • Between $ 4,400 and $ 4,600: 13,750 calls against 350 put options. The net result is $ 60 million in favor of call instruments (bull).
  • Between $ 4,600 and $ 4,700: 18,500 calls against 50 put options. The net result is $ 85 million in favor of call instruments (bull).
  • Above $ 4,700: 22,800 calls against 0 put. The net result is complete dominance, with the bulls profiting by $ 107 million.

This raw estimate considers call options used in bullish bets and put options exclusively in neutral to bearish trades. However, this oversimplification ignores more complex investment strategies.

For example, a trader could have sold a put option, thereby gaining positive exposure to Bitcoin above a specific price. But, unfortunately, there is no easy way to estimate this effect.

Bears need 6% price correction to reduce their loss

The only way for bears to avoid losses on Friday’s expiration is to pressure the price of ether below $ 4,400 on November 5, down 6% from the current $ 4,660. . So, unless there is news or worrying events announced before the weekly options deadline, bulls are expected to earn $ 85 million or more.

Traders should also take into account that during bull runs the amount of effort a seller needs to impact the price is immense and generally ineffective. Currently, options market data points to a huge advantage in call (call) options, fueling bullish bets for Ether, raising expectations of a rally to $ 5,000.

The views and opinions expressed here are solely those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Cointelegraph. Every investment and trade move involves risk. You should do your own research before making a decision.
