Part 2 Wrap Up: Gathering Thoughts on The Crypto Gathering

Following Part 1 Gathering Thoughts on The Crypto Gathering (see here)

@John Ahearn @Seahyung Park @Jeremiah S @Weston Nakamura wrap up Crypto Gathering ‘21 with:

Irresponsibly Long/Short: Debate on replicating the traditional active asset management & hedge fund industry model →  crypto assets

Irresponsible Outlooks: What will be on the Crypto Gathering 2022 agenda? (1 year forward looking predictions, risks and opportunities)

Revelations of being Responsibly Allocated (or not)

(Regarding crypto active fund management strategies, see RV Interview from Jan 21 2021 with Anatoly Crachilov, CEO of Nickel Digital Asset Management and @Moritz Seibert of Two Quants discuss BTC futures vs swaps, arb strategies and more - see video here)

As I keep mentioning in the videos + posts on the Exchange as well as the Crypto Gathering Slack channels, I am looking at this event through the year over year lens, comparing CG’ 20 → ‘21.

Incredible progression in the space during the 9 months since CG at end of June ‘20 - at the time spot BTC was $9130 struggling to break $10k resistance, which happened a month later, BTC is 5x, ETH is 6x from Gathering to Gathering.

An interesting NFT project happening now: Chubbies!

So it should go without saying...this is HIGHLY speculative, pretty much gambling...

I saw this morning Gary Vaynerchuk posted about this NFT project Chubbies ( on Twitter. This husband and wife team have basically created 10000 unique character GIFs. The price gradually rises from 0.02 ETH for early buyers up to 1.0 ETH for the last 100 sold. You don't know what your unique Chubbie looks like until the big reveal tonight at 5pm PST. The current price is 0.64 ETH but there are a handful selling at a discount on Opensea ([sortAscending]=true&search[sortBy]=PRICE&search[toggles][0]=BUY_NOW). 

Once they are sold out, I expect max speculative interest on Opensea as those who feel like they lost out turn to the secondary market before the big reveal. AFTER the reveal, prices will likely depend highly on the traits of the individual Chubbie as people seek out available Chubbies with the traits they prefer.  I'm holding 1 Chubbie and will look to list mine at auction on Opensea to expire just before the big reveal. If nothing else it will create a little excitement on a quiet Sunday afternoon!

I have zero experience in these kind of projects so don't follow thinking I know what I'm doing! I did want to share as it seems to be a fun way to learn some about the world of NFTs.
