I’m sick of feeling like we have to apologize for our early stage and walk on egg shells around politicians and regulators. We built a $2 trillion financial market from scratch in less than a decade with absolutely no institutional help and active encumbrances from government.

If Barry sues the SEC, I'll add him back to my holiday card list.
Last night our attorneys at Davis Polk sent a letter to the SEC arguing that approval of #Bitcoin futures-based ETFs, but not #Bitcoin spot-based ETFs, like $GBTC, is “arbitrary and capricious,” and therefore in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA).

I retweet this clip every so often to remind my followers that every second you spend watching the mainstream media makes you dumber and less equipped to handle the hyper-volatile future.

The virus crisis is happening because there is a critical deficit of quantitative reasoning in our media & political class. Here, Brian Williams of MSNBC and Mara Gay of the NYT Editorial Board divide $500M into 327M to get...$1M?

Wrote a piece on "Online Tribes" and "Boomers" describing it as a clash of world orders, framing Web 3 in terms of the socioeconomic phenomena it represents. wrongalot.substack.com/p/boo… Summary below:

I plan on selling the market top on Jan 31. This will be my plan until Jan 31 when I push out my forecast and miss the top.

This makes all the sense in the world, too, yet it gets spun as a bad thing by far too many. Bitcoin =/= Crypto & Crypto =/= Bitcoin. It's a diverse space with massive real-world usage. Bitcoin is one implementation, but we are disrupting more than just money & stores of value.

If you are working in fields like AI or web3 or VR right now, you are living through and creating important history. Enjoy it and keep notes. May victory be yours.

1/ As I learn about web3, I’m intrigued by the idea of creating new opportunities & networks that can benefit Ohioans. I'm getting more confident that we can—& should—build that future via blockchain. But I want to stop & address one of the concerns that’s come up: fraud & scams.
