Bitcoin On The Rise - Will Crypto Be The Saviour Of Independent Musicians?

2개월 전


This article is for information only and IS NOT FINANCIAL ADVICE
If you know me you will know that I have been very excited by blockchain technology and the crypto currency that comes with it for the last 18 months, even through the bear market.

As a computer programmer and independent musician I instantly saw the potential but didn't really know much about the underlying market dynamics and as most of you who are part of the Atom Collector Records community know we've pretty much only ever seen the prices go down since we started using some of the platforms.

Well I have spent the last year or so immersing myself in YouTube videos and podcasts so I could understand more. What I discovered was that the crypto currency market acts in a very similar way to traditional stock markets albeit in a much more volatile way due to its young age.

The exciting thing is that most "experts" agree that we are at the beginnings of the next bull market (i.e. upwards!). Just look at the Bitcoin chart:

Bitcoin is the "gateway drug" of crypto so you would expect to see this rise first followed by the "alt coins", which means the current and forthcoming music platforms and blogs that I believe will put the paltry earnings we currently get from traditional platforms in the shade.

And this time we have huge traditional companies getting involved and launching investment products and payment systems left, right and centre which means massive demand for crypto currencies! Hold on tight!

I'm more excited than ever and I hope you are too!
