Last week Crypto Twitter finally, sort of, moved on from the FTX drama. Now it’s all about the who-got-infected-by-FTX-drama.
Last week Crypto Twitter finally, sort of, moved on from the FTX drama. Now it’s all about the who-got-infected-by-FTX-drama. Like Genesis:
Who Went Viral This Time?
She explains her three investment frameworks for L1/L2:
1) The turnaround hero: the chain that looks down and out and comes back from the dead in the next bull run.
2) The Ethereum scaling war champion: the chain that dominates Ethereum scaling.
3) The grass-root survivor: the people’s champ chain that is not dominated by VCs?
Tascha picks out Solana, Arbitrum and Cosmos as her three leaders, but the race is still on.
He covers all 50 shades of grey when it comes to rugs and how they’re pulled off. Seriously worth reading!
The final recommendation in this week’s jam-packed section full of alpha is FatManTerra’s explainer of ChipMixer:
In short, ChipMixer looks like it has no problems getting financing and works without issues, even though similar services like Tornado Cash (that have fewer admin rights) got shut down. Good reminder to stay careful out there!
Who Is Arguing In Way Too Public A Place?
The Twitter drama took a well-deserved breather this week.
With one tiny exception. Ben Armstrong aka Bitboy:
Yup, you saw that right. Bitboy flew out to the Bahamas to “go looking” for SBF. Unsurprisingly, he didn’t find Sam and got escorted off the grounds by building security, but the publicity was well worth it:
While he was at it, he also took a shot at Kevin O’Leary:
And Bitboy didn’t miss the chance to meet a couple of Crypto Twitter legends (can you find Gainzy?):
Is the Bitboy-turning-citizen-journalist redemption arc real or will there be a final twist to the tale?
Either way, sure one of the less surprising revelations on Crypto Twitter this year.
Elon Building Twitter
Mr. Musk was fairly quiet on the Twitter/Crypto front last week, even posting fewer memes than he did in recent weeks. But he made sure to let us know that the company culture is changing:
Saylor Saying Stuff
Michael Saylor is late but not too late to join the party and dunk on Sam Bankman-Fried. He posted this take last week:
Talk of the Town
The FTX drama on Twitter is down but not out yet. And judging by SBF’s speaking gig at the New York Times in a few days, it’s bound to continue next week:
Crypto Twitter has not grown tired of calling out how big mainstream media outlets have been seemingly treating SBF with velvet gloves:
It has been truly odd to witness how several newspapers painted SBF as “well-meaning but unlucky” when he confirmed in a DM exchange several weeks ago that the “altruism shtick” was mostly a front. You can’t help but wonder whether this will backfire for news outlets in the long run:
Powell maintains that proof of reserve should be the sum of client liabilities, cryptographic proof that each account was recorded and signatures proving control of the assets. Powell is being the voice of reason in a space that too often lacks those:
You didn’t understand what that means? Here’s what it means:
If you thought that cryptocurrencies will keep you away from the government’s watchful eye, think again…
