Lawsuit against Nvidia: Wrong Crypto Mining Revenue Statements

Published

on

According to the lawsuit, Nvidia has made false statements about how it can help to reduce the consequences of the decreased demand from the crypto market.

A class action level lawsuit has been filed against Nvidia, the tech giant which is also a part of the S&P 500 and reported as the worst performing S&P 500 stock of the last quarter of 2018. According to the lawsuit, Nvidia has made false statements about how it can help to reduce the consequences of the decreased demand from the crypto market.

Schall Law Firm, a firm that expert in shareholder rights litigation and securities-related lawsuits has is the firm behind the lawsuit.

 

How it all started:

At the start of 2018, as the prices of cryptocurrencies were at an all-time high, the demand for mining rigs and GPUs were extremely high and were being sold at high prices. With the increasing demand, companies such as Nvidia and AMD had to increase their production. However, as the cryptocurrency market started to crash, the demand and price for cryptocurrency mining rigs also crashed which led to an oversupply of mining rigs.

Nvidia soon saw a whooping downward trend in the stock market and by December 2018, it was the worst performing stock on the S&P 500. The massive selloff decreased the value of the stock by around 54%.

Nvidia assured investors that they will tackle the effects of the reduced demand for mining rigs by the strong demand in the gaming industry.

According to the lawsuit claim, based on the following points, the public statements of the company were false and misleading although the class period and as the market started to know the truth about the company, investors faced huge losses.

As the lawsuit is not certified yet, the law firm is encouraging Nvidia investors who purchased the stocks between 10th August 2017 to 15th November 2018 to get in touch with them.

Stock Market Crash Inevitable in 2019: Bitcoin to Rise

Published

on

What are the chances of the stock market crash in 2019? How the stock market crash will uplift the crypto market and bitcoin will rise due to it.

Whenever a person buys a bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency, basically you are investing in a market known as the crypto market. Most of the people think that there must be a relation between the current trend of other markets such as the stock market on the crypto market. And if it so, one must be worried about what will happen to the crypto market if the stock market collapse. Also, before that, one must foresee the chances of the stock market to be crashed in the upcoming years.

Well, in this article we will discuss two things which are anyhow interconnected to each other. The first phenomenon that we are going to discuss is the collapse of the stock market in 2019. Is it going to happen and what are the chances of the stock market crash in 2019? In the next section, we will discuss how if the stock market crashes in 2019, it will uplift the crypto market and bitcoin will rise due to it. So, let us first focus on how the collapse of the stock market is inevitable in 2019.

 

The stock market going to crash in 2019:

It has been ten years that a stock market crashed. As per the trade experts, the stock market is definitely going to collapse this year. The year 2018 itself was one of the worst years for stock market after 2008. Let us have some facts regarding the stock market current scenario:

 

  • Volatility in 2018: Volatility refers to the degree of fluctuation of a share in the market. The 2018 year was one the year which has very high volatility. This means that the security value of the stocks fluctuated so dramatically and was not steady at all. And as per the analyst, the stock market tends to crash so near when such a high volatile phase is there in the stock market. The volatility was never such before 2008 especially for S&P 500. Even after 2008, a high financial crisis occurred and so as the prediction of the crash of the stock market in 2019 is inevitable.

 

  • 30% crash in Apple: Apple Inc. for the first time in nearly 15 years, faced a downside and even up to such a large extent. This loss was in the region where they have a very high command, in China. As per the officials, they were completely unaware of any such crisis. And if this is the condition of China itself, the global markets are surely going to be affected soon.

 

  • Rising of United States Interest Rates: The interest rate has enhanced around 8 times that is used to be in the United States in 2015. And, this is definitely not a good sign for the stock market. The high interest rates have always lead to financial recession and if this trend continued, surely collapse of the stock market will occur next year.

 

So, above warnings depicts that a stock market is surely going to crash in 2019. Now, in the next section, we will see how if such a crash happened, it will affect the bitcoin on a positive note.

 

Why Bitcoin will rise due to stock market collapse in 2019?

First of all, we need to understand that the stock market and the crypto market are connected to the financial components like banks, government policies etc in two different ways. The stock market is highly depended upon the other market components like stocks, equities, banks, government policies etc, whereas this is not in the case of bitcoin.

  • Well, if look deep in the case a stock market crashes, certainly bitcoin will rise. If there is a crash, people will look for an alternative to the usual market, after all, it is the hard-earned investment. People will start questioning about the function of the usual stock market and start research on how they can earn more by investing and if there is an alternative for the stock market, it is the crypto market. In the case of the stock market crash, more and more people will tend to the crypto market and eventually, this will help the bitcoin as well as complete crypto space to rise.
  • Another hint for the rising in bitcoin is the inverse relationship of the crypto market with the global market. Some believe that a stock market crash was the time which gave the invention of the crypto market. As per the inverse relationship theory by some trade analyst between the global market and crypto market, as there is downhill in the stock market, the other one will definitely rise. A stock market can encourage the investors to buy more and more cryptocurrencies as a safe asset, like once gold used to be.
  • The entry of institutional money in the crypto market. We have been listening to the rumors of the entrance of this big money in the crypto market for a very long time. Now, if a crash happens in the stock market, definitely it will lead more and more investors to invest the institutional money in the crypto space. Eventually, the crash will enhance the extent of investment of institutional money into crypto space which is a good sign for Bitcoin and other digital currencies.

 

So, on a short note, bitcoin can surely rise if the stock market collapse in 2018. What are your thoughts on the same? Tell us in the comments section below.

Trump Government Shutdown: Effects on Stock Market and Crypto Market

Published

on

Donald Trump, the president of the united states ended the government shutdown on 25th January 2019. Let's discuss the effects of Trump Government Shutdown.

Donald Trump, the president of the united states ended the government shutdown on 25th January 2019. This shutdown began on 22nd December 2018 and lasted for 35 days. Almost most of the government works were on hold during this shutdown. Now, one must argue that apart from the political impact of this Trump Government Shutdown, what could be its financial impacts. Now, when we are pointing out financial impacts, we are including two markets i.e. the stock market as well as the crypto market.

In this article, we will discuss the effects of Trump Government Shutdown on the stock market and crypto market. We will first introduce the Trump Government Shutdown and finally will point out its effect on the stock market and crypto market individually.

 

The Trump Government Shutdown:

During the campaign of the presidential election in 2016, Trump had promised to build a border wall between US and Mexico. The expected cost for this action was around $5.7 billion. Trump thought to regain this cost from Mexico. But, this negotiation was refused by the President of Mexico. Eventually, Trump passed an order to build the wall using the existing funding of the federal.

However, a appropriations bill was passed by the Senate in December 2018 and it was not having the fund for the above border wall. Trump refused to sign on this bill as he was focused to include the fund for border wall in this bill. Trump met the top leaders of the Senate on 11 Dec 2018 asking them to support a bill for this border wall having a cost of around $5.7 billion. However, the members refused.

After this declination, Trump announced to start the Government Shutdown in the sake of border security on 22 December 2018. This shutdown expired the funding of various sectors like tax collection, law and regulations etc. Around 0.8 million employees were not paid during this duration. According to a survey, this shutdown cost the US economy around $3.6 billion.

This was a short introduction to the Trump Government Shutdown. Nextly we will see the effects of this shutdown on the stock market.

 

Effect on the stock market:

Well, if seen at a broad level, shutdowns have never affected the stock market and this shutdown was also not an exception. There wasn’t any major impact of the shutdown on the stock market. The global stock market has risen as well as fallen during the shutdown. During the shutdown, the market fell but for a very short period, around 10-15 days and having no major impact at a global level. During this Trump Government Shutdown, the MSCI World and Asia index have risen 8.1 and 4.2% respectively. The S&P 500 has risen to around 9.3%. So, there is a mix impact on the stock market during the shutdown.

Now let us focus on effects on the stock market after this shutdown. The shutdown has always lead the stock market to rise tremendously after a time gap of 3 months to 1 year after the shutdown. So, it is expected that the stock market will without any doubt, rise significantly after around 3 months of this shutdown.

Now, after the effect on the stock market, let us have a glance at the effect of the Trump Government Shutdown on the crypto market.

 

Effect on crypto market:

The shutdown may impact the crypto market in both directions as well as indirect way. If we consider the direct impact of the shutdown on the crypto market, then the delay of Bakkt comes first into our mind.

Bakkt was supposed to be launched by the ICE on 24th January 2019. However, ICE was not aware of this shutdown while announcing about the launch of Bakkt. Now, after the shutdown was announced on 22 December 2018, it delayed the launch of Bakkt. It still requires to have some important approvals from the trading commission of the country and as all such commission were off during the shutdown, the Bakkt failed to get these approvals on time and hence was not launched on 24 January 2019. Hence, the shutdown delayed the launch of Bakkt.

 

Now, let us consider the indirect impact of the shutdown on the crypto market. The price of cryptocurrencies didn’t have some much fluctuation during the shutdown. For example, on 22 December 2018, when the shutdown was announced, BTC was at $ 3882 while on 24 Dec, it was around $ 4311. While on 25 December, it fell to $3756. So, we find that the crypto market faced a mix impact of this shutdown. Someday it rose and someday it fell. So, there was a fluctuation of the impact. Overall, the shutdown doesn’t impact indirectly on the price of cryptocurrencies.
