I ran across this coordinated pump and dump strategy on discord. Just wanted to share as I found it interesting and thought that everyone should be aware of this phenomenon. https://cnn-crypto.com/news/bitcoin/
Dozens of trading groups are manipulating the price of cryptocurrencies on some of the largest online exchanges, generating at least $825 million in trading activity over the past two months – and hundreds of millions in winnings for those lucky enough to be a member of those groups, according to a Wall Street Journal analysis
I've been thinking through @Raoul Pal monsoon thesis and I have been trying to figure out how to express this as a US based investor - any thoughts would most appreciated.
India: INDA vs INDY etf.... any better ones out there...
Reliance Industries: INDA looks to have the most exposure, does anyone know how to get more direct exposure as a US investor?
Israel: EIS / IZRL - any other ones?
Iran: No idea here... maybe Israel or Middle East ETFs might give indirect exposure... not even sure I am allowed as a US Citizen.... but I wrestled and Iran loves wrestling... so we have that in common!
So I ran into this a few times as I have been running down the Altcoin rabbit hole - just trying to learn more about this space. Warning this definitely has some conjecture in it - but it does seem to be plausible. The short of it is, even though the Fed says they aren't pursuing a digital currency at this time, they in fact already have a CBDC in USDC? Here are the links were the original thought comes from.
Then we have the announcement that the US Gov is routing aid to Juan Guaidó through USDC.
And the announcement that USDC is coming to Stellar as well. Would love to know all your thoughts.
Just curious to see if anyone is doing this - I am looking into it - but need to make sure whatever hardware I am using can last for the next 2 years and will be hardened to power blips and lost internet connections. Any experience you can share would be most appreciated!
With the news that Powell is sending the $ back to Mnuchin.. anyone thinking about buying some puts on HYG/LQD? From my limited understanding, the fed won’t be able to backstop the credit markets until Biden gets in and Congress signs off on it? I wonder if Ackman knew this before putting on his corporate bond short position?
@Ash Bennington Awesome interview, I had to go back and watch it a 2nd time once I realized who you interviewed and I am floored that you got the interview. I saw this link in researching him and went back and watched him stumble around his comment on being in the space for 10 years.
" And I'm see--after seven years of developing smart contracts, and 10 years in the--well, 10 years--well, a number of years--in any case, a number of years in the blockchain industry, you basically see--you're now seeing people make financial contracts in this format that are about monumental, kind of foundational pieces of the global financial system"
Apparently he purchased the "smartcontract.com" domain back in 2008. Anyway - great interview and congrats!!
I have some relatives that are looking to develop a ~$20 mil property in Tahoe (Community housing/development/coop) ... they are getting some issues working with the developer and the banks. I told them that they should investigate using defi. Anyone have any suggestions or recommendations on how they could do this?
