Here is a video I put together discussing what I think happened at FTX. It’s a story worthy of a movie, which might actually be happening as “The Big Short” author was already writing about Sam apparently. Until that comes out you are stuck with my low budget content, enjoy.
I really do believe we have an opportunity to build something better. The Bitcoin genesis block included a quote from a British newspaper about the turmoil after the Lehman Bros collapse “Chancellor on Brink of Second Bailout for Banks”. Nearly 14 years later and we are still making the same mistakes in trusting 3rd parties to manage our finances.
If regulators can’t solve these issues in traditional markets then we shouldn’t expect them to in crypto. Decentralized networks and permissionless smart contracts with trustless interactions will ultimately this problem #DeFi

🥂 Ethereum Goes Deflationary
While news of the fallout from FTX has dominated crypto Twitter there was some good news in Ethereum going deflationary.
📈 Markets ETH/USD
Ethereum is at an important level @ $1250 USD. I think how it reacts to this will be telling for how the market performs in the short term. Longer term I believe the bottom must be close because… how much worse can it get from a fundamental perspective?
Something that I’ve found invaluable to refer back to over the years is the Wall St. Cheat Sheet. It’s a gross oversimplification of the market cycle patterns and it’s effects on our psychology.
I believe we are getting close to the point of maximum financial opportunity which is why I’m still excited to be exploring new and emerging blockchain technologies.
