Announcing the Release of the 2023 Market Outlook
April 23, 2023

Secure Digital Markets just launched its exclusive magazine: The 2023 Market Outlook. This is your key to keeping up with the ever-evolving crypto market. Our team of experts has gone above and beyond to provide you with unmatched insights, ensuring that you stay ahead of the curve.

The 2023 Market Outlook is brimming with never-before-seen interviews and in-depth analyses curated exclusively for our discerning clients. We’ve handpicked the brightest minds in the crypto sphere – from visionary builders to seasoned investors – to bring you their insights and help you make better decisions in this volatile market.

Inside the 2023 Market Outlook, readers will find discussions on macro trends, the mainstream adoption of the Metaverse, institutional flows, and the intricacies of Bitcoin mining. The magazine contains exclusive trend predictions, market breakdowns, interviews, and much more. Here are a few small teasers of what you can expect to find inside the magazine.

Macro Trading

Angus McRitchie, a renowned Hedge Fund Manager, shares his insights on the macro landscape of 2022 and reveals the main themes he thinks will be prevalent in 2023. One significant theme that McRitchie identifies is the impact of regional differences, particularly as China reopens after COVID lockdowns. He questions whether China’s reopening will benefit the global economy or potentially create a supply crunch, and how the end of lockdowns might influence inflation.

McRitchie asserts that understanding the broader trend of COVID and its economic implications is crucial. He highlights the importance of monitoring inflation, as it may have already peaked, and how the market’s response to stable and elevated inflation levels will shape future trends.

Bitcoin Mining

Spencer Marr, President and Founder of Sangha Systems, shares his predictions about the hash rate, cost of power, and general Bitcoin mining dynamics. On a longer timeline, Marr anticipates one or two more intense bull runs similar to those experienced between late 2020 and late 2021, followed by a maturation of the industry as it starts to function more like oil and gas.

Marr envisions a future where huge financial institutions compete for a normalized 8% to 10% profit margin, with their competitive advantage hinging on their ability to creatively source and configure energy. This race towards lower operating costs and the pursuit of cheaper electricity will drive the industry towards renewables. As Marr explains, renewables offer the lowest possible energy costs, with no fuel costs once the infrastructure is built.

Another prediction he makes is that Bitcoin mining will eventually become a somewhat mundane business, with 80-90% of the industry comprised of large mines co-located with even bigger renewable energy facilities.


Matt Zanardo, VP of Strategy at Metaverse Group, discusses the institutional adoption of the virtual world and the ways it will intersect with our physical reality. Zanardo sees numerous metaverse activations occurring both virtually and in real life, with cross-engagement between the two dimensions becoming increasingly common.

He envisions a future where brands create incentives across platforms, with physical pop-ups mirrored in virtual environments for global accessibility. Interactive poll apps, NFTs, and similar technologies will be used to grant access to virtual experiences, further blending the physical and digital realms.

Zanardo also highlights the opportunities for event integration, with tickets for concerts and other experiences being sold as NFTs. These NFTs would not only grant access to the event but also allow users to rewatch the performance or access exclusive content later on. He believes that this seamless crossover between real life and the virtual world represents the next step in the adoption of metaverse technology.

Other highlights include:

  • Taras Kulyk, Founder of SunnySide Digital, on the macro trends affecting the future of Bitcoin mining.
  • Tali Friedman, Creative Director at NFT BAZL, on why NFTs will need to be rebranded in 2023.
  • NFT Investor Evan Luthra on big losses in 2022 and the big gains he thinks are coming in 2023.
  • An anonymous trader who finds unique arbitrage opportunities for profit on-chain.
  • Adam Button, Chief Currency Strategist at Forex Live, who has a unique take on yields, the Bank of Japan, and the European Central Bank’s plans for 2023.
  • Jorrin Bruns, Polkadot Integration Specialist, for comments on what to watch in this exciting ecosystem.
  • Toufic Adlouni, Managing Director of Renno&Co, commenting on the financial and legal ramifications of the ETH Merge
  • Joaquim Miro, our Chief Growth Officer, commenting on the 6 trends that we think will dominate in 2023
  • And more briefs on DeFi hacks, stablecoin regulation, and everything else that will affect the crypto landscape in 2023.
