As part of our 2020 prognostications Matt, Duncan and I whipped out the Ouija board Jan 1, 2020 to summon the great spirit of Satoshi Nakamoto

We were going to talk about New Years Resolutions. After accidentally calling forth a Japanese tuna fisherman and a crazy Australian preacher we finally got through to the great anarcho-capitalist revolutionary.

In a lengthy session in which we accidentally ended the curse on Bitcoin SV we found that these were Satoshi’s takeaway points. We’ve decided to take them on ourselves.

1. Follow the 10 Commandments of Trading

Rules are made to be broken but life is complicated, dynamic, subjective and situational. So, we need some divinely inspired instruction. Mine Digital went up the mountain to talk to Jesse Livermore so you didn’t have to – find our 10 commandments of trading here.

2. Concentrate on a Few Important Things, Instead of the Many Unimportant Things

The rate of change is fast but is increasing quickly as well! We are overwhelmed with information and data, with too many options; eventually, we are not giving some important things enough respect. This year, we are developing our strengths as leaders in what we do well and not being sidetracked outside of that. As part of our commitment to the community and being connected with others we solve the big problems together and don’t miss any details.

At Mine this means developing our platform – delivering our Alts exchange, offering options, margin lending and improving our trading offering. We believe that our financial services backgrounds make us the best people to deal with for your digital asset needs.

3. Strengthen the Community to Strengthen Yourself

Referenced in the last resolution, this year we are looking to empower the community by maximising what we have to offer, so that others can do the same.

For Mine Digital, this means that we continue to talk to the crypto community, visiting meet-ups, going to conferences, building new relationships and seeing what we can give.

4. Go to the Jim More Often

Jim Rogers and other legends of trading have stacks of old wisdom in financial markets. This year we should look for how to implement the old wisdom into our decision making more often as the crypto markets become less wildly speculative and begin to take more form. A long process but one that begins in 2020.

5. Stress Less

This year we are taking more time out to live a more balanced life. You might like meditation, spending time with the kids or Ayahuasca holidays to South America. Whatever it is, the time is now.

6. Let Go of Grudges

Does anybody know how XRP is supposed to work yet? No? Don’t hold a grudge! Providing liquidity to global markets with a token is a pretty cool idea. Can it work? We might find that out this year. There could be other tokens with something to them that have not had a good run – Algorand is one that comes to mind.

7. Spend More Time on Social Media

The Mine Digital twitter tag is here, our Facebook page, LinkedIn and our medium page is here Get around it!

8. Get Over Your Ex

You’ve got over your grudge, but have existing attachments! Been married to a shitcoin in 2019? Somebody whisper sweet nothings in your ear about x10 bags and you can’t unhear it? Had your pants pulled down by a well-oiled scam machine? In 2020 it’s time to leave the past in the past.

9. Start Writing a Journal

A trading journal – record your ups and downs, things that worked and didn’t work. You will notice that your mistakes fall into common baskets of mistakes that are well known and talked about amongst other people. From that point you can start to fix them. Start writing a journal!

10. There is no 10!

Break out of your predictable structure and do something different for the sake of it! 2020 is about being dynamic and making new realities.
