  17. Crypto startup Amber Group hits $1 billion valuation on fresh fundraising, as famed hedge fund Tiger Global joins Coinbase as backer (21/06/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Crypto startup Amber Group hits $1 billion valuation on fresh fundraising, as famed hedge fund Tiger Global joins Coinbase as backer | Currency News | Financial and Business News | Markets Insider (businessinsider.com) Harry Robertson Jun. 21, 2021, 04:42 AM ​ Crypto startup Amber Group has hit a $1 billion valuation after a $100 million fundraising round. Famed hedge fund Tiger Global injected cash, as did Chinese bank China Renaissance. It's the latest sign of institutional interest in crypto startups, which continues despite bitcoin's crash. Crypto investment startup Amber Group has hit a $1 billion valuation after a $100 million fundraising round that saw famed hedge fund Tiger Global Management invest in the Coinbase-backed company. The round was led by Chinese bank China Renaissance, while Tiger Brokers, Arena Holdings and DCM Ventures also injected money, Hong Kong-based Amber Group said on Sunday. Amber Group is now worth more than 10 times what it was in 2019, when the company raised $28 million at a $100 million valuation. Its $1 billion valuation makes it a so-called tech unicorn. The startup said it's expanding its operations globally to bring its crypto financial services to more customers around the world. Founded in 2017 by a group of ex-Morgan Stanley traders, Amber Group provides institutional investors with a range of ways to get involved in the crypto world. It offers trading, lending and asset management products, among others. Between 70% and 80% of Amber's revenue comes from the spread between the company's deposits and loans, CNBC reported, while around 15% comes from trading fees. The fundraising round is the latest sign of institutional interest in the crypto space, which is continuing despite the recent crash in the bitcoin price. Tiger Global, which earned investors more money than any other hedge fund in 2020, also invested in Chinese crypto lender Babel Finance in a $40 million fundraising in May. The hedge fund was founded by Chase Coleman, a protege of Tiger Management boss Julian Robertson. In April, Ethereum-focused development company ConsenSys raised money from JPMorgan and UBS, among other investors.   submitted by   /u/SavannahSmiles_ [link]   [comments]

  21. Crypto vs stocks and crypostocks (23/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Anyone care to share an opinion on this matter? Was looking at some Crypto values and noticed this article by Forbes https://www.forbes.com/advisor/investing/top-10-cryptocurrencies/ Basically some of these coins have really gone up in value in short time. For example Dogecoin going up 160,000% over just 4 years. And BNB (Binance Coin) going up 350,000% over just 4 years as well. Comparatively $AMZN has gone up ~210,000% since IPO but that took almost 25 years. Then there is this situation with stocks that are related to Crypto. For example $COIN is a crypto exchange platform. So when crypto picks up or drops, stocks related to it will fluctuate as well. Interestingly this company Binance seems to have a strong market share for the crypto exchange platform market. And then you have to factor in which crypto itself is the one that will take hold. For example Bitcoin has been somewhat of the dominant crypto for a while. But others are popping up that offer distinctions compared to bitcoin. IE some have a lower carbon footprint per transaction, some offer additional security or functionality measures. And since Crypto is so new, who knows if any of these have truly cracked the code for creating the best possible crypto and the crypto that will be mainstream in another 10 years. Crypto has been tanking. But Elon saying that Tesla might start accepting Bitcoin again. Musk and Dorsey had a friendly debate or more like a conversation about cryptos. And I think $TSLA themselves have a decent investment in crypto holdings. So yeah just looking for some inputs on this. Do you guys see cryptos going back up? If so which ones? Do you see Binance achieving monopoly as a crypto exchange platform? Do you see more money in stocks, cryptos or a cryptostock like $COIN? Just wondering, I'm a bit stoned and curious at the moment.   submitted by   /u/PaleontologistWest [link]   [comments]

  34. Crypto investment (19/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    To all my fellow shareholders, To my utmost disappointment , I hereby declare ,that I chose this auspicious day to begin my journey into the world of crypto. I decided to put in around 10k INR this morning , and dude, am I in a state of "Numb". Anyways , I put in the amount knowing that I don't care even if all is lost. I knew this kind of crash could happen ,but not that it would happen in a few hours. Lesson: Always stick to what you understand, stocks are always wiser choice since they are based on businesses unlike crypto which really doesn't have anything to back it up(no intrinsic value- cryptos aren't really producing anything which can be consumed). Secondly , if a tweet can affect the prices of crypto, are they really functioning as decentralised . Thirdly , I do think that no government would like to give up control or power, this control is always dependent on money ,which again the govt owns or creates, the government's across the world would never give this away to some decentralised currency . Even if it accepts it for shorter term, the government's would again discard this concept as a whole. Lastly , never think of crypto as an investment , a gamble would be more apt ,tbh   submitted by   /u/SneakAf [link]   [comments]

  37. A hedge fund lost 10% in just a few days after a sudden spike in AMC stock derailed an options trade, new report says (12/06/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    A hedge fund lost 10% in just a few days after a sudden spike in AMC stock derailed an options trade, new report says | Markets Insider (businessinsider.com) Natasha Dailey Jun. 11, 2021, 04:45 PM ​ Hedge fund Mudrick Capital lost 10% in just a few days amid a recent surge in AMC Entertainment's stock price, the Wall Street Journal reported. The fund announced earlier this month that it purchased millions of AMC shares and sold them at a profit shortly after. The fund is still up 12% year-to-date, while shares of AMC are up more than 2,000% Hedge fund Mudrick Capital lost 10% in just a few days of trading as shares of meme stock AMC Entertainment spiked to record highs, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing people familiar with the matter. The losses were driven by call options sold by firm founder Jason Mudrick, according to the WSJ. The position, intended to serve as a downside hedge, ended up backfiring as the stock surged too much, too fast. The runaway share spike occurred on June 2, when AMC shares rose as much as 127%, to $72.62, well beyond the strike price of $40 for Mudrick's options. Just one day prior, Mudrick had disclosed a $230.5 million purchase of new AMC stock, then immediately sold those shares at a profit, according to a Bloomberg report. Despite the success of that leg of the overall AMC trade, Mudrick's calls on the stock were still held short, leaving them vulnerable to the June 2 surge, the WSJ found. Mudrick did close out all options and debt positions on June 2, albeit too late to avoid the squeeze. While the fund did earn a roughly 5% return on the debt, it ended up absorbing a net loss of 5.4% because of the options trade. Though the fund took a hit amid the surge, it's still up about 12% for the year, the Journal said. Meanwhile, AMC, the world's largest movie theater chain, is up more than 2,000% year-to-date. Retail traders have been dealing blows to short sellers and hedge funds this year as they've poured into stocks with high short interest rates in order to force a short squeeze. Earlier this year, investors on Reddit's Wall Street Bets led a share price surge in GameStop, which caused short sellers to lose billions. Amid the renewed meme-stock interest in recent weeks, short sellers have continued to lose money in retail-trader favorites like AMC and GameStop. The meme stock trade has scared off many short sellers from heavily betting against certain stocks.   submitted by   /u/SavannahSmiles_ [link]   [comments]

  42. Better off investing in actual blockchain protocols than blockchain stocks? What's actually riskier? (16/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I know this is sub is not crypto/blockchain oriented, but I wanted to start a discussion about this since the current rise in stocks like RIOT, MARA, and BTBT. These stocks follow the exact trajectory of bitcoin - when bitcoin goes up, they go up, when it goes down, they go down. There's no company valuation or fundamentals involved in the marketcap of these stocks, it's entirely emotion/gut based trading that follows the BTC market. So my question for the more old school traders is, why would you invest in these stocks and not actual crypto currency at this point? I could be wrong, but it seems clear that blockchain stocks give you almost all of the financial risks of bitcoin with less of the reward. One of the biggest arguments for blockchain is that if you have a large amount invested in fiat/government issued money system - crypto is a hedge on that system. For many people in my generation, having even just a few toes in crypto is a safe haven, if govt issued fiat were to tank. So, whether you believe fiat is dying (or on its way to being hyperinflated) or not, why would you invest in this blockchain alternative with fiat? That means, if fiat actually does hyperinflate, the stock market will be more at risk than these actual blockchain protocols. Please, if this is a dumb idea forgive me. I'm fairly new to investing, and just want to know what the rationale would be to invest in a BTC ETF and not in actual btc? It seems like the risk is actually greater than investing in BTC. Let me know what you think.   submitted by   /u/wetbootypictures [link]   [comments]
