The Inevitable Collapse of the ICO Market
Acclaimed trader and notorious Bitcoin maximalist, Tone Vays will return to Bitcoin Wednesday on 3 October, 2018 to talk about the failure of the alt-coin market and what it tells us about Bitcoin. He will also teach us something about technical analysis and trading charts to get a sense of where the price might be heading next.
Tone is an expert in economic trends, trading and risk analysis. He was a Wall Street insider for nearly 10 years, starting out as a Risk Analyst at Bear Stearns, and later becoming a VP at JP Morgan Chase in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis.

Mr. Vays’ Wall Street experiences have had a strong influence on his perspective of the digital currency revolution. Ever since getting involved in the cryptocurrency ecosystem in early 2013, he has taken an active role in educating the public about the importance of blockchain technology and its role in promoting economic freedom. He wrote about trading and economics for CoinTelegraph, and served as Head of Research for the data and research company, BraveNewCoin.
He has also been featured in several documentaries such as Magic, Money and Beyond. He now produces content for his website ToneVays.com and his Youtube channel about sound economics and finance.
