At Regal Assets, we have recently received a great honor. Our company obtained the very first (government issued) crypto-commodities license by the Dubai DMCC government, as covered by Bloomberg. This marked a historic event and synthesis between the Western world’s love of investing and the Middle East’s safe haven neighborhood of the United Arab Emirates. The old adage “with great power comes great responsibility” rings true for us and our founder Tyler Gallagher. As we have achieved global recognition in the crypto world, Mr. Gallagher has since learned the hard way that there are both upsides and downsides to this… Read More
The Wall Street Journal and Zero Hedge have recently both come out with a strong and dire warning (really more of a prediction actually) about an upcoming wave of inflation, coming to American cities near you soon.

It has turned the G7 nations of the world (and even long-time staunch Saudi ally the United States) firmly against the kingdom. Morality of the issue aside, the repercussions of this international geopolitical incident could have profound economic consequences not only in the Middle East but also… Read More
Last week Jamie Dimon, the larger than life CEO of U.S. banking giant J.P. Morgan Chase, raised serious threats to the global economy that you should be paying attention to now. The legendary investment banking mogul stated that geopolitical hot spot tensions and climbing interest rates have the potential to upset the U.S. economic growth. Dimon attracted the attention of global media with his declaration: "The economy is still very strong, and that's across wages, job creation, capital expenditure, consumer credit; it's pretty broad-based and it's not going to be diminished immediately. I was pointing out the probabilities that I… Read More
