Reasons For the Volatility of the Crypto Market

Cryptocurrency is a rapidly-growing market. This is not breaking news. You probably know both sides of the coin (so to speak): crypto has made kings —and paupers. But those wins and losses don’t necessarily come from winners picking good coins and losers picking bad ones. 

It is possible to talk to two people who have both invested in Dogecoin, but one lost money and the other gained a profit. Whether you gain or lose can depend largely on timing. This is because cryptocurrency is an incredibly topsy-turvy investment. All cryptocurrencies experience huge fluctuations in their valuation—a concept known on Wall Street as volatility. 

In one day, Bitcoin’s value dropped 30%. But, why? This question brings up something that we often forget with cryptocurrency: it isn’t intrinsically valuable. There isn’t gold or diamonds or anything backing up crypto’s value. At no point did the U.S. Treasury say, “Yes, any time someone wants to bring us Bitcoin, we will give them X number of dollar bills from our reserves.” Not all die-hard crypto fans would agree, but there is an argument that crypto’s value really only comes from how much people are willing to trade for it—in goods, other cryptocurrencies, or in dollars.

The the360mag website gives more information on the importance of blockchain to the cryptocurrency in ensuring it protects the volatility of crypto assets. The primary reason for volatility in cryptos is their newness. All new concepts take time to settle and be accepted.

The asset class, the market as well as investors/speculators are still finding their feet and so it is still the initial stages of price discovery. Cryptos have gained global prominence (or notoriety) in the last few years. But as an asset class, it’s not as accepted as traditional assets such as stocks or gold. 

Growing acceptance and maturity of the market go hand in hand. That is why when Tesla indicated that cryptocurrencies will not be accepted as a mode of payment, the value of Bitcoin crashed. Business Standard reported that when Tesla boss Elon Musk wrote ‘Doge’ on his Twitter post, the value of Dogecoin increased. Such influencing events or personalities are adding to the volatility, just the way when some star investor buys a particular company’s shares.

Given the lack of understanding and rules, trading is at present, highly speculative. Investors bet on the prices going up or down, and these speculative bets cause a sudden influx or outgo, leading to high volatility. We have discussed the reasons for the volatility below.

Lack Of A Controlling Agency

Unlike other asset classes that have some sort of governing or controlling agencies, cryptocurrencies are by their very nature not controlled by any entity. 

Forkast reported that the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has sought to entice the crypto-wealthy to the country’s shores. TAT is working with regulators and Bitkub, the country’s largest crypto exchange, to enable tourists to pay with cryptocurrencies and position the country as a “crypto-positive society”. 

The iGaming sector is also growing rapidly, with several crypto-friendly sportsbooks and casinos provided by Asiabet. The recommended sites also offer other traditional means of payment. Players can also enjoy welcome bonuses, a large variety of events with impressive odds, and FAQs such as details on deposits and withdrawals.

The Sentiment Factor

When cryptos get more popular and accepted, more investors will understand the factors that influence their movement. Till then, a lot of the movement is speculative in nature as investors are buying or selling based on sentiment.

Even those who are looking at cryptos for the long term are doing so as they believe that the asset class will gain acceptance. Tesla’s Musk, for instance, explained that he owned Dogecoin because many of the employees own Dogecoin.

“Many young investors are putting money in cryptos. Their aim is to invest and earn quickly. So when they lose a big amount, they usually quit the market, leading to volatility in the market,” says Ajeet Khurana, a crypto project advisor, and investor.

One such young investor is Delhi-based student Shivam Tiwari, 21, who has been investing in cryptos regularly since 2016. “My maximum loss so far has been Rs 89,000 and profit has been one-fourth of that. But we have to keep in mind that the volatile nature (of cryptos) makes it different from other forms of investments,” says Tiwari.

NFT-VIP

NFT-VIP is hosting its inaugural conference in the tech space to network their businesses, advance knowledge and engage intimately. In the recent past, similar NFT meetups have been held in multiple cities across America: Miami, New York City and Los Angeles. This year, NFT-VIP will be holding its series at Margaritaville Resort Time Square, June 19 – 22. 360 MAGAZINE serves as the official media sponsor of the episode.

As a rapidly growing digital industry, NFT-VIP has become a popular way for people to trade outside the conventional financial system. It continues to stimulate the development of a virtual economy based on digital strengths in various forms: music, art and fashion.

“The idea of using cryptocurrencies is not only a form of currency. Along with a deliverable channel, knowing that entities could be built on them and using them is mind-blowing,” states Julie Lamb, CEO of NFT-VIP. This is the first major 360 MAG Podcast promotion that will serve as the official launch. Interviewee Jefferson Noel is scheduled to speak on the NFT-VIP agenda. Other notable guests: Andrew Yang, Young Paris, Alex Alpert, Vaughn Lowery, Chris Carter, Genesis Johnson, postVerrone, Fanzo and FoodMasku.

The NFT-VIP festival was fabricated with the unique digital identifier enthusiast in mind, providing a golden opportunity to intensify transmissions and interrelations. The number of leading brands and celebrities involved in this field is increasing exponentially with the world’s first and largest crypto collectibles market—OpenSea. With that, 360 MAGAZINE has minted and released a loveable Animal set.

As a media partner, 360 MAGAZINE aims to liaise between NFT-VIP participants and disadvantaged business enterprises. 360 is determined to spread the word on NFT-VIP to countless cohorts: the elderly, women, racialized groups and the queer community. “We now coexist in a multi-generational society with multi-racial people who have multi-educational backgrounds and who possess multi-hyphen lifestyles. Our purpose here is to create an environment of inclusiveness and to further facilitate sustainable relationships beyond the metaverse,” Lowery shares.

During the engagement, 360’s Swarovski encrusted bottle, made in collaboration with Integrity Bottles and Good Vibe Gliders, will be forged on Solana with partial proceeds donated to a charity. 360, freshly announced pet NFT, apace with Reebok’s Looney Tunes footwear, will go to a handful of lucky guests with Best Tech Style. Additionally, in real time, the publication will interview the speakers in their ecletic enclosure with bean bags and a bejeweled e-bike.

ADAM ANDERSON

Listen to Adam Anderson on 360 MAG Podcast HERE

Adam Anderson, the author of Fire Yourself, the Entrepreneurial Endgame and co-host of the Two Stones, One Bird podcast, is a cyber security and space entrepreneur who has been the advisor, founder and/or primary investor in over 30 startups. Adam created the field of the psychological security and started his cybersecurity business to reach the goal of “Building resilient human minds to resist manipulation through technology,” stopping people from hacking minds by making sure everyone is aware of the concept. By taking the human side under consideration, Adam realized that it is still not fully protected when humans are involved in the virtual process where cybercrime happens, even though the underlying technology of crypto and NFT is safe today.

As the world is becoming incredibly digitalized, the businesses that need cyber security the most are those on the supply chain who are trying to adopt new technology but have little perception of blockchain and smart contracts. As a cybersecurity venture, Adam is responsible for the growth of cyber economy by reporting criminal activity and researching companies to ensure they are trustworthy. Adam is also one of the speakers at the NTF-VIP which is happening in NYC from June 19th – to 22nd. Being a person who holds the experience as both an entrepreneur and an institutional investor, Adam is excited and curious about “how do I use traditional bc and pe structure to organize all these things but replace institutional money coming in with money from NFT and DeFi.” At the same time, his engaged and professional speech made him a reliable speaker for clients looking to create a buzz in their communities. 

In 2018, after selling his first cyber security company, Adam recognized that his role should be investing in people building companies that innovate in cyber security instead of staying on the front line. This is the point where he started acting as venture capital. The process of walking alongside those startups from the beginning stage to the final launch and production usually takes five years with three roles involved in each stage: pre-accelerator, accelerator, and incubator. He is now serving as the Chair of the Board for Hook Security and as Managing General Partner for Ansuz Capital

Will we Have Complete Control of Our Own Environments in the Metaverse?

The metaverse is on the way, and the hype around it is gaining serious traction. It could be completely transformative, changing the internet as we know it. It will have a major effect on many industries, with social media expected to be at the forefront of this new platform.

Social media users today have a multitude of privacy options so they can control what people see. However, there are questions about how and if this will translate to the metaverse.

Social Media Users Are Currently Able to Select Their Privacy Options

One of the reasons why social media sites have enjoyed such amazing success is the fact that users can tailor their own environments. They can see what they want to see and show people what they want to show them.

A lot of social media users value their privacy with the utmost importance. Nearly 80 percent of Facebook and Instagram members have adjusted their privacy settings in the last year, highlighting how crucial these features are.

According to an infographic from ExpressVPN, there are various ways to stay safe and private on social media. This includes having multiple accounts for different purposes, reviewing photo tags, and limiting posts to close friends. Users have so much control over these settings that they can create their own social media experience.

How Will This Translate to the Metaverse?

Because so much is unknown about the metaverse right now, it’s hard to know how these privacy settings will translate to this new world. According to XR Today, the metaverse will serve a wide variety of functions. This will include socializing, working, and playing. If people are using this world for different things, it may mean that their settings will have to alter depending on what they are doing.

Users may interact with the metaverse on different levels, some of which will give them more control than others. It’s reasonable to imagine that in social scenarios, everyone will have the power to show and see things in the same way they do now. However, when entering wider social settings like groups or entertainment zones, users may be exposed to content that they have no power over.

Metaverse inhabitants may still be able to block people as they can today on social media. If they encounter a blocked person in a social setting, they may not be able to see the face of their avatar or interact with them in any way.

There are already some theories about this, such as the ideas posed by Futurism. Metaverse users may be able to block things that they don’t want to see and go about constructing their own virtual worlds over time. Eventually, this could lead to bespoke experiences for everyone who enters the metaverse.

There’s no doubt that it’s going to take time for users to adapt to the metaverse. It is also likely to go through a lot of teething problems before it is as advanced as the world of social media today. Users have grown accustomed to constructing their own online spaces, though, and the metaverse is likely to offer similar options.

Simon Fuller's pop group Now United imagery via MPRM for use by 360 Magazine

Now United × OP3N

Simon Fuller (American Idol, Spice Girls, So You Think You Can Dance) has partnered with OP3N and the Culture Catalyst – a recently announced $100 million commitment to fostering arts and entertainment projects on the Avalanche blockchain – to develop and produce an innovative musical film with the world’s first global pop group Now United

The Musical is a live-action musical film featuring members of Now United and original songs. It will be available to the NFT pass holders on the recently launched OP3N app. The mission of the project is to inspire schools everywhere to create their own versions of performances from the musical and compete for honors within the OP3N platform through community voting.

Simon Fuller comments: “This project allows me to redefine how an audience can engage with content. Not only can it be enjoyed simply as entertainment, but you can actually participate, initially through learning and then by creating your own version of the musical with your friends or school. It is a celebration of the art of musical theater and the passion for self expression and new technology that allows people to get involved in ways never before imagined.”

Using the native video and music player on the OP3N app, NFT pass holders will also be able to stream the The Musical and access a broad range of related content including rehearsals, choreography lessons and interviews with the cast. The Op3n app will also facilitate submissions and voting on a competition based on the Musical, as well as the purchase of NFTs.

OP3N, a launchpad for IP and communities in Web3, recently partnered with the Avalanche Foundation to launch and co-finance Culture Catalyst – a $100 million initiative to redefine the entertainment business model. Culture Catalyst will fund and support the development of arts, entertainment and culture projects on the Avalanche public blockchain.

“Web3 is powering a new paradigm in music and entertainment, but many artists have been reluctant to dive in for lack of an environmentally responsible solution that can consistently deliver a good user experience. In Avalanche, we’ve found the best possible answer and we couldn’t be more excited to bring these capabilities to bear to help Simon Fuller and Now United realize their vision for interactive entertainment’, said OP3N studios co-founders, Jaeson Ma and Eric Tu

From creator-inspired tokens to NFTs, decentralized tech is redefining the way arts and entertainment is created, financed and consumed. The OP3N – Avalanche initiative is designed to inspire a diverse range of blockchain-based creator communities’ projects and provide funding for emerging artists, entertainers, filmmakers and musicians who are looking to expand beyond traditional channels and expand paradigms for ownership.

“We believe that success in collaboration begins with choosing the right partners and we’re delighted to be supporting this ground-breaking project”, said John Nahas, VP of Business Development for Ava Labs.

“In OP3N and Simon Fuller, we have found visionaries who not only share our concern for the environment, but who also recognize the magic in direct connections between fans and creators”, added Ava Labs’ Chief Marketing Officer, Devon Ferreira.

“I’m super excited to be working with Simon and Now United to bring something truly innovative into the NFT space. We will be utilizing Avalanche to create new ways of fan engagement and build a sustainable fan base and community for years to come,” said Nelson Diaz, OP3N Chief Marketing Officer and Founder of Long Lost Friends.

Culture Catalyst recently announced projects with Grimes for an Intergalactic Children’s Metaverse Book that will be released later this year. Additionally, singer-songwriter Ava Max announced her partnership with Culture Catalyst for the launch of her next music video in collaboration with iconic director Joseph Kanh. Culture Catalyst comes after OP3N’s $10 million seed funding round that brought together heavyweights from the worlds of entertainment, tech and gaming.

CEO of NFT VIP Julie Lamb via 360 Magazine

JULIE LAMB

NFT-VIP: Bridge to Reality

Julie Lamb, the CEO, Founder, and Executive Producer of How-To with Julie Sue, is a problem solver, storyteller, digital content creator, and economy connector. She is a collector of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin or Ethereum and is passionate about helping brands build their identity using current tools and a highly selected network of virtual agents to develop the entrepreneurial capacity of brands. She has already collaborated with multiple popular brands such as iHome, Disney, KidDesigns, Hasbro, CES, KeaBabies, Michael Todd Beauty, and Crown Goose USA. 

Listen to Julie Lamb’s full conversation with Vaughn Lowery on the 360 MAG Podcast HERE.

While studying music, Julie went to Europe and started working on fashion collections. She finally settled in New York, where Julie has 30 years of experience working as a model. By highlighting the activity with Brunello Cucinelli on Saks Fifth Avenue, Julie mentioned that her creative confidence was greatly inspired after moving from a small Southwestern town to the Big Apple, New York City. 

Julie has long loved the worlds of tech, digital, and speed: ‘I like being able to share things digitally.’ At the forefront of the crypto wave in 2017, she bought Ethereum, a digital platform used to make smart contracts, allowing entrepreneurs to create decentralized applications, as in the case of Julie. 

Immersed in the realm of cryptocurrencies, the trailblazer supports projects like Non-Fungible Token (NFT). As a rapidly developing industry, NFT is becoming an increasingly popular way to buy and sell digital art, spanning industries like sports, music, fashion, film, games, etc. The annual NFT conference, held in multiple cities (including New York City and Los Angeles) around the United States, attracts hundreds of guests from various fields who speak about exponential growth and future trends in different verticals and how the digital landscape can incorporate this new tradeable product. 

As an NFT-VIP (in which 360 MAGAZINE will serve as one of the media sponsor), Julie’s mission is to shape the NFT industry into diverse communities made of global thought leaders who share like-minded values and beliefs. Last April, she attended the Miami NFT week and served as its Executive Producer, where she focused on igniting new dialogue amongst attendees and tastemakers on topics related to technology, creative installations, immersive art, and performance. Julie can be recognized as an economy connector for providing the space for several minority-owned businesses in this conference to discuss the present and future of the meta-universe and how it affects them. 

Although the attendance was underrepresented and some representative minority-owned businesses felt left out, Julie declared her conditional support for the voice of women and the LGBTQ community. Meanwhile, this kind of offline meeting takes highly digital products further into reality, narrowing the society’s discrimination against aging. In addition, she is fascinated by using Web3.0 and its implementation with artists in the fields of music, fashion, and the token economy.

An example of this is that the international brand Gucci has started a multi-directional exploration to embrace the digital world, which associates a luxury brand with emerging technologies through a series of avatar experiences; i.e. exhibitions of Gucci art, mini-games, and digital item purchases.

Julie is now preparing a private event in New York City with NFT VIP sponsorships from June 19th-22nd at Margaritaville Resort Times Square, owned by the real estate and investment firm Soho Properties. Surprise celebrities will be attending that directly tie in with her message and bring new inspiration to the community. Sponsorship opportunities available for this four-day event.

In the field of cryptocurrencies, that features multiple sponsors, will have an additional sponsor called the crypto coin concierge. They will cover the luxury travel for the most elite global clients in the world of cryptocurrencies and with payment through these. Julie tells us that her company has also partnered with iHeartRadio on Crypto Radio in the marketing industry.

The Aura Blockchain Consortium joins the SMI Fashion Task Force to leverage technology to achieve sustainability and circularity goals

Aura Blockchain Consortium, founded by LVMH, Prada Group, Cartier, part of Richemont, the OTB Group and Mercedes-Benz, is joining the Sustainable Markets Initiative Fashion Task Force, a private-sector coalition aimed at accelerating the transition towards a more sustainable future in the global fashion, textile and apparel sector. The SMI was launched by His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales in 2020, and its Fashion Task Force is chaired by Federico Marchetti, tech entrepreneur and sustainability pioneer. Aura Blockchain Consortium’s technology will help members of the Sustainable Markets Initiative Fashion Task Force achieve their sustainability goals and enhance traceability. 

“We’re thrilled to have Aura Blockchain Consortium join the Task Force. Its presence will accelerate our mission to build innovation, transparency and a collaborative spirit within the fashion industry. Only by working together and leveraging technology will we protect the planet.” says Federico Marchetti, SMI’s Fashion Task Force Chair.

“It is a privilege to support HRH The Prince of Wales’ Sustainable Markets Initiative Fashion Task Force along with its members and teams through the Aura Blockchain Consortium’s private blockchain and NFT solutions as we work towards our shared vision to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable future. We are excited to start the collaboration with the Fashion Task Force’s team to push circularity and traceability forward” says Daniela Ott, General Secretary of Aura Blockchain Consortium.

Across 2021 and 2022, the Task Force has been delivering action in multiple areas where Aura Blockchain Consortium’s traceability platform, built for the luxury sector, will bring considerable value. In recognition that consumer interest in more sustainable products is on the rise, the Task Force is focused on unlocking circularity by rolling out a Digital ID, which was launched at the G20 in Rome in October 2021. The Digital ID allows key players in the fashion value chain – including manufacturers, brands, retailers, resellers and recyclers – to provide unprecedented transparency and traceability of the products they sell. It also unlocks new circular services for customers, such as care and repair services, as well as ones focused on resale and recycling.

The Aura Blockchain Consortium already enables and supports participating members to tag their products with secure, unique blockchain-based identities that can track a product’s manufacture and supply from raw materials through to end consumers. As such, it owns the perfect innovative technology to enable the Task Force and its member brands with this ambition.

Effect of Bitcoin on the Nokia market

Bitcoin has had a profound impact on the market for Nokia stock. While the company’s share price has been volatile in recent months, it appears that Bitcoin-related activity is having a positive effect on the stock. In particular, it seems that Nokia’s association with blockchain technology is helping to boost investor confidence in the company. Platform like Oil Profit also using bitcoin.

It is evident from the growth in trading volumes on the stock market, which has increased significantly over the last few months. 

Few reasons for the change in investment

Many investors see Nokia as an innovator in blockchain technology and believe that it has excellent potential for development in the future.

Nokia is regarded as a strong player in the telecommunications sector, and investors feel that blockchain technology can help boost the company’s growth in this area.

Some analysts have pointed out that Nokia is well-positioned to take advantage of the increased adoption of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

The company already has extensive experience developing mobile payment solutions.

As a result of these factors, Nokia benefits from the current Bitcoin boom. While there is no guarantee that this positive trend will continue, it seems likely that the company’s stock price will continue to rise shortly as more investors become aware of its potential.

Nokia isn’t the only company seeing benefits from the Bitcoin boom. Several other companies, including IBM, Microsoft, and Amazon, have also been associated with cryptocurrency in recent months.

However, Nokia is one of the few stocks that has seen its price increase due to Bitcoin-related activity. It indicates that investors believe that the company has real potential to capitalize on blockchain technology.

Positive effects of Bitcoin on the Nokia market

The positive effects of Bitcoin on the Nokia market are as follows:

First, Bitcoin can help to increase its international market share of Nokia.

Bitcoin can help to expand its customer base of Nokia.

Bitcoin can help to improve its brand image of Nokia.

Bitcoin can enable Nokia to offer more competitive pricing and product offerings to consumers, which may help drive sales growth.

With the growing adoption of Bitcoin, Nokia has more significant opportunities to engage with customers and build lasting relationships with them.

Overall, Nokia has many benefits from adopting Bitcoin, and it represents an exciting opportunity for the company to grow and thrive in a rapidly changing global marketplace.

Adverse effects of Bitcoin on the Nokia market

Nokia was once the dominant player in the mobile phone market, but companies like Apple and Samsung have overtaken it. One of the reasons for Nokia’s decline is its failure to embrace new technology, such as smartphones and apps. Another reason is the rise of Bitcoin.

Bitcoin is a digital currency that can transfer funds quickly and securely between users. It is not controlled by any country or central bank, which can use it to avoid monetary regulations. It has made it a popular choice for criminals who use Bitcoin for money laundering and the purchase of illegal goods such as drugs and firearms.

It has caused concern among financial regulators, who fear that the use of Bitcoin could contribute to another financial crisis. As a result, they have called on governments to introduce limits on the amount of Bitcoin bought or sold. Still, these calls have been ignored due to opposition from business groups who argue that such measures would stifle innovation in the digital currency sector.

It is especially true of companies dealing with virtual currencies, as banks are unwilling to risk losing even more money in the event of a crash in the Bitcoin market.

It has caused problems for Nokia, which was one of the first companies to develop apps for use on smartphones and tablets. 

Conclusion

The effects of Bitcoin on Nokia are both significant and far-reaching. While it remains to be seen how these companies will adapt in the long term, it is inevitable that cryptocurrency is here to stay and is already having a significant impact on the business world. 

For better or worse, Bitcoin will continue to make waves in the months and years.

Nunes is building her personal gym in the Sports Metaverse. She’ll appear in 3D and coach users on how to fight:

“It always was a dream to have a gym. You want to be in control of your stuff, you want to train the way you want. You want to be able to share with the fans. I’m building my own gym in the real world and now I have one in the metaverse. It’s very exciting! I can’t wait to put all my posters in my own gym! I’ve made a lot of history in MMA and I can’t wait to have all my pictures and memories of these moments in my gym, so every time I walk in I have a good vibe and be able to train to do even more good things in the sport. I can’t wait for the next step in my life!” Nunes commented.

‘We are delighted to welcome Amanda Nunes and the five sports brands to the Sports Metaverse. Amanda’s gym and the training she will offer are unique. We are the only metaverse volumetrically capturing icons like this, enabling consumers to interact with top athletes in a completely new way. This is groundbreaking stuff and we can’t wait for the public land sale in June.’

Besides Amanda Nunes and Romelu Lukaku, a series of sports stars and brands are lined up for The Sports Metaverse, with agreements underway with leading athletes from soccer, tennis, MMA, basketball, and baseball. A public land sale for the Sports Metaverse will take place in June. Brands can currently apply for the private land pre-sale and users for the white list via the Sports Metaverse website.
