Crypto Titans How Trillions Were Made And Billions Lost In The Cryptocurrency Markets

Markus Thielen Markus Thielen

This book explains how the crypto industry started and evolved, and how everything in crypto is ultimately connected. It shows the players behind the $3trn industry (at its peak) and how billions of dollars were lost. "If you want to understand how everything in crypto is related, and why and when crypto prices move up or down, this book is for you." Praise for CRYPTO TITANS “Fortunes are won and lost when transformations happen. Bitcoin is transforming the entire economy, and there will be many fortunes won and lost. But the drumbeat continues. Technology always shines in the end. Read this book. Great lessons learned.” ― Tim Draper, Founder, Draper Associates “This book is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding the history of crypto. Markus has done an excellent job covering all the important names and stories that have shaped the crypto industry, consistently hitting the nail on the head with accurate analysis to help readers understand the motivations and personal characteristics. I highly recommend this book to anyone.” ― Jihan Wu, Founder, Bitdeer and Matrixport In this book you'll learn: How each of the four crypto bull markets of 2011, 2013, 2017, and 2021 unfolded, the drivers behind them, and what caused prices to correct violently during bear markets How crypto markets naturally progressed, and how everything is therefore related The players involved, and how they have made money—while others have lost large sums. Understanding these points may help the reader to identify the next crypto bull market. The last 3yrs have been the most instrumental in the development of the market, with the adoption level reaching not only individuals but also asset managers and corporate executives—only for the development to be cataclysmically overshadowed by bankruptcies of multi-billion-dollar crypto lending firms and crypto trading desks. Overview: The 1st of the book describes how Bitcoin started as a peer-to-peer payment system, and how the first crypto bubble was facilitated by onramp payment companies in 2011, which mainly funneled money into the notorious Mt. Gox exchange, eventually leading to investors’ funds being stolen. The 2nd analyzes how China embraced Bitcoin and hailed it as a new form of money, which set off a massive speculative bubble in 2013. The 3rd describes how Ethereum got really started and set off the period of initial coin offerings (ICOs) that would lead to the third bull market in 2017. It also identifies the decisions that caused Tether to become the most important stablecoin. The 4th of the book shows how decentralized finance (DeFi) started, and how the speculative mania that was set off by the COVID stimulus checks would reach its peak. Binance became the largest crypto exchange despite its controversies, and effectively dethroned BitMEX as the most important crypto exchange. The crypto trading firms Alameda Research and Three Arrows Capital also became multi-billion-dollar players in the crypto bull market. The 5th of the book takes a deep dive into the 2022 bear market, exploring how crypto spectacularly crashed from a multi-trillion-dollar valuation and why the implosion of the Terra stablecoin caused $60bn to vanish within a few days. The 6th contemplates the events that led to the implosion of Sam Bankman-Fried’s crypto exchange FTX, once valued at $32bn, after a meteoric 4yr rise.

Proceedings Of The 2022 2nd International Conference On Business Administration And Data Science Bads 2022

Víctor Fernández-Viagas Springer Nature

This is an open access book. The 2nd International Conference on Business Administration and Data Science (BADS 2022) is hosted by Kashi University and organized by the College of Economics and Management of Kashi University. The 2nd International Conference on Business Administration and Data Science (BADS 2022) is one of the series of activities for the 60th anniversary of the founding of Kashgar University In the current situation of rapid economic development, the competition in the market is increasingly fierce. The drawbacks of traditional enterprise management and the backward management concept have seriously hindered the normal development of enterprises. In order to improve their competitive advantages and market share, enterprises must optimize their management methods and build a modern business administration system. In this situation, enterprises can only promote their development process by improving their business management mode and formulating scientific business management policies.

Proceedings Of 19th Latin American Control Congress Lacc 2022

Orestes Llanes-Santiago Springer Nature

This book presents the main results of the 19th Latin American Congress of Automatic Control held in November 2022 in Havana, Cuba. The Congress showed several main research results obtained by researchers from diverse countries in the last four years. Of the papers sent to Congress, 28 were finally accepted for presentation after a rigorous analysis of scientific novelty and quality. For their presentation in this book, the papers were divided into 5 major sections that appear in the following order: Part 1. Robust and Nonlinear Control The main research topics addressed in this part are related to fault-tolerant control loops, control by sliding modes, and robust tuning of PID controllers. Examples of electrical motors and chemical processes are used to demonstrate the feasibility of using the proposed techniques. Part 2. Fault Diagnosis in Industrial Systems Fault diagnosis in industrial plants is a very important topic in the Industry 4.0 paradigm. In this part, new techniques of fault diagnosis in mechanical systems using Poincaré features; a real case study for predicting the time of the remaining job cycle at a water treatment plant; and a predictive fault diagnosis for isolated photovoltaic systems are presented. A novel methodology for detecting and locating cyber-attacks in water distribution networks using computational intelligence tools is also presented. Part 3. Robotic and Autonomous Systems New control strategies for path following for autonomous tractors and unmanned aquatic vehicles are analyzed in this part. Moreover, the important topic related to the battery health-aware model predictive control planning for autonomous racing vehicles and the use of robots for monitoring and remediation applications are examined. Part 4. Modeling, Identification, and Delayed Systems A model-based methodology for the efficient selection of centrifugal pumps; the use of probabilistic Boolean networks in smart grid models; the utilization of PSO metaheuristic algorithm in the selection of a model structure; and two schemes to control high-order delayed systems are among the main topics examined in this part. Part 5. Low-Cost Systems and Biomedical Applications In this part, some applications of low-cost monitoring and control systems and two automatic systems used for the characterization of creatinine in wastes samples during hemodialysis process and differential acquisition of blood pressure are shown.

Interest Rate Derivatives Explained Volume 2

Jörg Kienitz Springer

This book on Interest Rate Derivatives has three parts. The first part is on financial products and extends the range of products considered in Interest Rate Derivatives Explained I. In particular we consider callable products such as Bermudan swaptions or exotic derivatives. The second part is on volatility modelling. The Heston and the SABR model are reviewed and analyzed in detail. Both models are widely applied in practice. Such models are necessary to account for the volatility skew/smile and form the fundament for pricing and risk management of complex interest rate structures such as Constant Maturity Swap options. Term structure models are introduced in the third part. We consider three main classes namely short rate models, instantaneous forward rate models and market models. For each class we review one representative which is heavily used in practice. We have chosen the Hull-White, the Cheyette and the Libor Market model. For all the models we consider the extensions by a stochastic basis and stochastic volatility component. Finally, we round up the exposition by giving an overview of the numerical methods that are relevant for successfully implementing the models considered in the book.
