Q: I am trying to determine the economic dynamics of bitcoin, specifically mining. Today’s G&M article on bitcoin states that with the halving and its the resultant effect , and the cap of 21 million coins , the rewards for mining will become smaller eventually approaching zero. Am I correct in this ? If miners get no reward then someday they will cease to mine. What would replace this I wonder. Economics 101 would show that a cap on anything skews the economic model and creates opportunities. I know GLXY does much more than mining . Still trying to figure this whole thing out. Thanks. Derek

Q: Over the last couple of months and as a result of comments made here I have started positions in the above five companies with funds allocated to higher growth potential/higher potential volatility etc.

Four of the five have done very well so thank you. In keeping with your philosophy of pulling the weeds and watering the flowers I have a couple of questions:

1) Would you sell ESTC at this point in time and realocate the funds to one of the four flowers or to a "new" high reward potential investment you would suggest?

2) The ESTC issue aside, would you be adding to any of these flowers at this point in time and in which order?

Thanks for guidance over these last number of years,

Q: My question today on price points for buying and selling LMN in my TFSA is derived from my experience with the ups and downs of EGLX which I rode from $1.90 to $11.00 to $.90 at which point I dumped it. I have LMN in my TFSA and it will be a long term hold. I am looking at GLXY and don’t want to repeat the EGLX story. Like EGLX , GLXY is in a “ happening “ sector with
well thought of management, a Canadian small cap expected to list on the NASDAQ. You had EGLX in the growth portfolio; recommended it at $7.00 but then eventually sold it. You saw a reason to sell that I didn’t and I paid the price. What am I to look at specifically for GLXY so I don’t repeat the same mistake ? ( Maybe I should just stay away with stocks that have the letters LXY in their ticker ! )
Thanks. Derek

Q: Can you suggest some Canadian and US listed stocks and ETF's one might want consider to get a small exposure to BlockChain in a TFSA. Do any of these companies make any money? Do you think the ETF's are reasonable proxies for BitCoin but with less volatility?

Q: What are the leading blockchain ETFs or companies? I'm more interested in focusing on the blockchain technology and blockchain applications used by numerous industries (financial, shipping, government, etc.) rather than focusing on any specific cryptocurrency like Bitcoin. Thanks.

Q: I've owned GLXY for a while. The last time Bitcoin was at the $50K level, GLXY was significantly higher (roughly $26-27). Any reasons why there is such a difference in the performance given where bitcoin is today? Given the halving is occuring in April, which is typically positive for the price of bitcoin, I would have expected a higher SP. Perhaps there's a catchup trade in the future?

Q: My only 2 TFSA holdings, held in equal amounts are WELL ( down) and EIF ( up ). I like EIF and hold it in greater amounts in my non registered account where I intend to keep it but expect it will be dead money for at least 6 months while Northern Mat recovers.
Am looking at selling EIF and along with my $7,000 contribution buying CALF , GLXY, and LMN in equal amounts, leaving WELL the largest holding at approximately 40% weighting ; the others at 20 % each. My TFSA is approximately 4 % of my total non registered and RRIF accounts and is not considered material so I wish to rebalance it towards stocks with more growth ( and risk ) potential.

I tend to go crazy with market timing : any advice on how to proceed on the sale and purchase of these? Any potential “ flashing red lights “ with this move ? Thanks. Derek

Q: With the launch of bitcoin ETFs what "crystal ball prognostications" can you have for such companies as Galaxy, Riot?

Bail? Hold? Buy?

The last week has given them a proper lathering, and I'm wondering if there is more (pain) to come or if it's a good time to add to the position?
