We consider crypto tokens as a new asset class. Fundamental analysis and token selection combined with safe storage are the keys to successful investing.
Around 2’000 token are currently listed on crypto exchanges. We classify them into the following categories:
The supply of Bitcoins is limited to 21 million. Currently, 17.6 million are in circulation. Yearly new supply or inflation is at 4% and will go done to 2% in 2020 and 1% in 2024. Due to loss of some Bitcoins over time, it will become deflationary in a few years. This makes Bitcoin an ideal Store of Value, comparable to gold; but not suitable as Global Medium of Exchange.
XRP (Ripple) or Stellar are better candidates for a Global Medium of Exchange. Faster and cheaper transactions could make them take away market share from SWIFT and other payment systems.
Participation in the revenue or profit of a business is a third category. These tokens are comparable to equities or bonds and are usually called Security Tokens. These tokens can be valued with tools similar to Discounted Cash Flow models.
Local Medium of Exchange tokens have a major caveat. Due to very fast transactions the same token can circulate many times a year; the velocity of the token is high. Therefore, only a small amount of tokens is needed to generate a certain revenue. Supply must be kept very low or demand must be very high to create value for these token. Usually, a kind of Membership is needed, which locks tokens in escrow accounts and hence reduces supply.
Our fundamental analysis classifies about 95% of tokens as pure Local Medium of Exchange with low or no value. Most of these tokens will disappear over time. It is our main goal to avoid these tokens.
Classification and valuation of a token can change over time. Therefore, an active portfolio management is needed.
