Those who have been following my website, or social media would know of the projects I have been working on, of which in that takes up most of my time and brain cells is the Blockchain Academic Research Institute – Crypto Chain University.
If you’ve followed my past ‘visual arts’ segment, you would have seen my initial sketch of the university’s arms. And also the sketch of the University Archives, the repository of Blockchain Research Papers.
With that, recently i decided to work on proper illustration, the showcases a legendary epic showdown between monstrous gargantuan beasts, a battle between the BEAR and the BULL. The bull symbolizes bullish, and the bear symbolizes bearish, characterized by rising share prices. Read more about Bullish Vs. Bearish by The Securities Institute of America, Inc. at Investopedia.
Investors who believe that a stock price will increase over time are said to be bullish. Investors who buy calls are bullish on the underlying stock. That is, they believe that the stock price will rise and have paid for the right to purchase the stock at a specific price known as the exercise price or strike price. An investor who has sold puts is also considered to be bullish on the stock. The seller of a put has an obligation to buy the stock and, therefore, believes that the stock price will rise.
Investors who believe that a stock price will decline are said to be bearish. The seller of a call has an obligation to sell the stock to the purchaser at a specified price and believes that the stock price will fall and is therefore bearish. The buyer of a put wants the price to drop so that they may sell the stock at a higher price to the seller of the put contract. They are also considered to be bearish on the stock.
In the illustration, you would also notice the Crypto Chain University’s arms logo embellished at the top of the research institute building.
