Quotes"In the beginning, fiat was the dominant quote currency. People were trading $btc to USD pairs, #eth to USD pairs, etc. Then around 2017, we started seeing #cryptoassets as the dominant quote currencies." ~Nomics CEO @ClayCollins Click To Tweet "It really is a graduation for a #cryptoasset to move from being a base currency to being a quote currency. There's very few. It's all $btc, #eth, #stablecoins & fiat." ~Nomics CEO @ClayCollins Click To Tweet "An interesting thing about #crypto is that it's attempting to disrupt traditional finance, but once people enter this new system, they don't seem to want to switch a lot. @Tether_to is a great example." ~Nomics CEO @ClayCollins Click To Tweet [Read more…] about 🎧 Quote Currency Dominance (QCD) & Why It Matters w/ Clay from Nomics.com
Quotes"When I read about #SilkRoad… whether you think that's good or bad, it was a sign to me that #bitcoin was changing the game. It had ripped up an old rule book and put a new one in." ~@philip_gradwell, Chief Economist @chainalysis Click To Tweet "20% of #bitcoin is made up of people who will be moving their $btc regularly. 80% is just sitting there… You've seen a buy-and-hold conviction really take root." ~@philip_gradwell, Chief Economist @chainalysis Click To Tweet "I'm trying to move our #blockchain analytics to measures that make more sense to people, that are more natural, that connect with concepts they're already familiar with." ~@philip_gradwell, Chief Economist @chainalysis Click To Tweet [Read more…] about 🎧 Chainalysis’ Economist Reveals Unreported BTC Analysis w/ Philip Gradwell
Welcome to this week’s Nomics Update, our way of keeping you in the loop with everything happening at Nomics.
We’ve just redesigned our website! We integrated several new features, including transparent market cap and volume indicators, which we placed at the very top of our homepage.
Transparent market cap is the aggregated market cap of all assets on cryptocurrency exchanges with A+, A, or A- Transparency Ratings. Transparent volume is the aggregate volume flowing through those exchanges.
For both transparent market cap and transparent volume, hourly snapshots are available by hovering over the charts.
You can zoom out by choosing a longer timeframe, and – as with all Nomics.com features – data can be priced in any fiat or cryptocurrency on the site.[Read more…] about 🗞 #35 – Homepage Redesign + New Transparency Indicators

Introduction to This Documentary
I decided to create this documentary about security tokenization after learning that many of my preconceived notions about security tokens were just flat wrong. During my journey, I also discovered that several individuals I respected (and who were otherwise well versed on cryptoassets) also had misconceptions about security tokenization, how and where security tokens attempted to add value, why they might be needed, and the mechanisms of how they worked.
As my friend, Taylor Pearson pointed out in a really long Tweet storm: understanding how cryptocurrencies work means understanding cryptography, distributed systems, economics, and politics.
Security tokens add to this list . . .
- SEC regulations & securities laws
- Equity mechanics
- Private and public issuance of stock
- Secondary trading
- Guidelines from over 100+ legal jurisdictions
My purpose here is not to convince you that security tokens and asset back tokens are valuable or needed, but instead to simply the complex and tell the story of projects makers, issuers, investors, and influencers driving adoption of security tokens.
To create this content, I had conversations with leading thinkers and creators in the field. What I found is that, at every step of the way, the tokenization of securities, real estate, art, and other real-world assets is forcing us to reexamine old habits and ways of operating.
This documentary started off as a passion project, quickly turned into a huge, time-consuming pain, and is now back to being a passion project as we hit publish.
