As part of their strategy to enhance the Island’s reputation for digital innovation, the Isle of Man will soon be opening the doors of its new Blockchain Office – a research, education and consultancy hub for crypto entrepreneurs and regulators.

In a major boost to blockchain-based businesses and entrepreneurs on the Island, the Isle of Man Government has announced that it will be launching a brand new Blockchain Office this Spring.

Part Sandbox and part consultancy scheme, the new project promises to deliver world-leading research, advice and knowledge-sharing across the crypto community and create an open space for discussions around regulation.

Companies involved in the scheme will have extensive contact with – and mentoring from – technologists, regulatory experts and successful entrepreneurs, as well as access to the Isle of Man’s extensive business infrastructure, which includes top-level accountancy and legal advisors and world-class connectivity.

The move is part of the Isle of Man’s burgeoning digital strategy, which was established last year to further the Island’s reputation as a leader in innovation.
Spearheaded by the Isle of Man Digital Agency, the strategy covers many of the most cutting-edge industries and sectors, from the Island’s thriving media and fintech communities, to esports and telecommunications.

Commenting on the plans, Lyle Wraxall, chief executive of the Isle of Man Digital Agency, said: “The establishment of the Blockchain Office sends out the clear message that we, as an Island, are going to be pro-blockchain, but that we are going to do that through good regulation – by attracting high-quality business, enhancing consumer protection, and becoming a globally recognised as a high-quality jurisdiction in this space.

“That’s why the consultancy wing of the Blockchain Office helps mature businesses to the point where they have the knowledge they need before they enter the Sandbox and start having that regulatory conversation.”

He added: “As an Island, we’re really well placed with our financial services, our infrastructure, and our egaming industry experts. We have such a strong support network of expertise that can come in and plug any gaps for early-stage entrepreneurs, so the innovators are free to focus on what they do best: the technology and the innovation. That innovation is what we’re trying to attract here, and I think the Blockchain Office will be the place where everything comes together to create an incredible ecosystem.”

The Blockchain Office is set to open its doors this February, with applications for consultancy services open from the beginning of March.

Isle of Man eGaming will be exhibiting at ICE London in the ExCel Centre from 5-7 February at Stand N6-220, N7. Contact Tony Jones on ton[email protected] or stop by the stand to arrange a meeting.

Ultimate Preparation Guide On How To Trade Digital Currencies: 4 Verified Must-Do Steps

Ultimate Preparation Guide On How To Trade Digital Currencies: 4 Verified Must-Do Steps
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Trading digital currencies are the new talk of the town, and it is quickly ruling the world of virtual investments. But with “cryptocurrency” itself a relatively new concept, here are must-do steps you are to take for a higher chance of trading-success. 

4 Tips Before You Start Trading Cryptocurrency

  1. Profit Targets And Stop Losses 

The world is witness to how cryptocurrency is leaping off of books, and up towards true financial gain. Although digital currencies are essentially unaffected by economic movement, the most recent global catastrophe (yes, COVID-19) has shown everyone that non-fiat currency is what can move forward almost without fail. 

So, the first thing you should do in your digital currency trading journey is to map out what your profit targets are. You can set your own personal “minimum” in which to price your digi-coins. In other words, set a price on said coins. 

At the same time, affix your stop losses as well. Stop losses are a determined minimum profit. The moment you hit this amount, you stop trading. Even if it seems as though the demand is high and traders are willing to bid higher, don’t. 

Create this “trading” habit. Remember that there is no “trend” in cryptocurrency. What might seem like a profit boom can easily slump back down in a second. Always hang on to your profit targets and stop losses. 

 

  1. Understand Volatility And Underlying Assets

The fact is that digital currencies are volatile. This is no secret, and this is, in fact, a variable which pro traders fully understand. 

It is a risk crypto-investors take. Then again, what investment doesn’t involve risk? Trading with fiat-currency-backed assets has its own volatilities, too. Only, it is a bit different, when speaking of digi-coins. As mentioned earlier, its market is near-impossible to predict. 

Because of this, having close targets is the safest bet to take. Either that or tell yourself not trade at all. At least, not at the moment. 

 

  1. Low Price Doesn’t Mean Green Light 

Go back to step number 1. Let your profit targets and stop losses be your anchor especially when your preferred digital coins suddenly plunge to low prices. Sudden low prices shouldn’t move you to just-as-suddenly invest all you have in them. 

Try observing this formula: Current Market Price x Total Number of Outstanding Shares. It isn’t merely about the price of a coin. And it is a rookie mistake you shouldn’t have to go through, now that you are being wise about your investing. 

Instead, look at the market cap. The higher it is, the more ideal it will be for you to invest. 

 

  1. Sell Order Placement 

This is a tip many are either unaware of or ignore. Sell order placement. Markdown a realistic sell order amount and keep it unmoving at that. Let this be your revenue target. For the time being, let it stay steady. You might just be surprised that a few buyers may want to meet your set price. 

Even better, sell orders are coupled with economical transaction fees as they are deemed as “markers”.
