It’s a handful! But if you want a TLDR version of the most important players in the blockchain industry, this thread is a must-read:
Who Is Arguing in Way Too Public a Place?
Moving on to the drama side of Crypto Twitter. There was not that much gossip last week, but the spat we noticed didn’t disappoint.
@FatManTerra, a pseudonymous account that is a big part of the Luna community, came out with this tweet:
Now you have to know that FatMan isn’t your run-of-the-mill anon. Guy has built some credibility for himself by releasing truthful and genuine content about Luna. But a “high-yield BTC farm?” We heard that one before, haven’t we?
FatMan’s tweet turned out to be a purposefully fake scheme as a warning to suckers out there – he tweeted next that people had sent him over $100,000 to invest (all of which he returned). His message? Stay vigilant out there, folks, as the next to-good-to-be-true investment scheme may not end so well.
Now you could certainly say that it takes one to know one. But the irony of Do Kwon commenting on the legitimacy of farms isn’t lost on us.
Or maybe Do Kwon just needs a break from his new position at Flipside Crypto, where he now works as Daphne Kwon:
(Apologies to the real Daphne Kwon, but this one’s just too funny not to mention it!)
Elon and Saylor Say Stuff
Our weekly section of Crypto Twitter’s two mascots tweeting outrageous stuff.
Elon was surprisingly quiet last week and didn’t cover crypto at all. He did, however, let us know that he did not like the “woke” Lord of the Rings TV series:
To be fair, he correctly pointed out that his comment section is getting spammed by bots. C’mon Twitter, do something!
Saylor’s most interesting tweet last week was an Arcane report on how Bitcoin mining can transform the energy industry:
Well, well, if that isn’t a topic we just covered on Alexandria in detail! Here’s our three-part series on Bitcoin and energy:
Talk of the Town
This one was tough to cover last week because there are a lot of talking points!
It feels like we’re moving closer to the eye of the storm with winter approaching. A potential energy crisis in Europe is looming, so the macro spilled over into crypto again, such as in this tweetstorm about a potential sovereign debt crisis:
The author was also nice enough to cover the most important question “wen long crypto:”
Arthur Hayes also covered macro in his essay last week:
Not everyone agrees though:
Bitcoin crabbed on some more last week, so for now it seems that much of the downside is in, though much upside shouldn’t be expected either. Either way, a good time to actually build some stuff, says Crypto Twitter:
And what better thing to build than a better version of Ethereum?
ETH has performed spectacularly against BTC in the last weeks and it will be very exciting to see how the ETH/BTC pair continues to trade after next week’s merge.
Our Favorite Coinfession
Ah Coinfessions, Crypto Twitter’s dark underbelly. we want you to pay close attention to who you’re hooking up with, anon:
Better think twice next time before breaking up.
No submission from Crypto Twitter can beat this gem:
Rest in peace, Your Majesty!
