1. What a mess these two #SEC lawsuits have created: first, the one filed yesterday against #Binance, and second, the one today against #Coinbase! What are the reasons? The SEC has deemed 12 #crypto tokens as securities, namely: Image
2. BNB, BUSD, SOL, ADA, MATIC, #FIL, ATOM, #SAND, #MANA, #ALGO, AXS, and COTI. Because of this, the SEC is accusing both crypto exchanges of running illegal exchange operations. How might this affect the broader crypto market? First of all, we have an increased risk associated Image
3. with #altcoins. Therefore, building a crypto portfolio using blue-chip coins like #Bitcoin and #Ethereum would be much more sensible under these circumstances (however, please bear in mind that ETH is not entirely outside the possible #SEC regulatory purview). Image

One of the backbones of the #MultiversX ecosystem is the #ESDT token standard.

Let's explore its unique features and how its capabilities stack up against the most popular token standard out there: the ERC20 token.
#Ethereum Image
1/11: The main difference is that ESDT is pre-coded, non-programmable, and with a fixed set of functionalities. #ERC20, on the other hand, requires developer expertise and auditing for robustness and security.
2/11: Here are the key functionalities of ESDT tokens:

⚗️Minting: Mint new tokens after their initial release.

🔥Burning: Users can burn a certain amount of their tokens.

⏯Pausing/Unpausing: Prohibit all operations except mint and burn.

[1/🧵] I believe @bob_way has already gone way overboard with #ILP and all the complexities of explaining all that needs to be expressed. ❤️

Still, let me make a few remarks on the following topics 👇
• Infrastructure layers of #ILP
#XRPL Payment Channels
• "Ledger Graphs"
[2/17] — Infrastructure Layers of #Interledger

When it comes to the most recent version of the open #ILPv4 suite in universal mode (high volume, low value payments), the layering is as follows:

1⃣ Application
2⃣ Transport
3⃣ Interledger (Core Layer)
4⃣ Link
5⃣ Ledger
[3/17] — 1⃣ Application Layer —

This is the suite's first layer, and it contains the following protocol:
➡️ #SPSP (Simple Payment Setup Protocol)

📝 This is for #identifiers, which are comparable to email addresses and are used to make addresses readable.

The 1-year US Treasury paper returns are nearly 5% (see image).

Add 3%-4% rupee depreciation (against the dollar) to this.
Investors could make an 8%-9% return

To let investors make use of this opportunity, @bandhanmutual has launched a new fund

Is it worth investing in?

A🧵 Image
Bandhan MF (erstwhile known as IDFC MF) has launched a new scheme.

The new fund - Bandhan US Treasury Bond 0-1 year Fund of Fund - is now open for subscription & will close on March 23.

Here’s how the fund works 👇
When you buy units of this fund, the fund house takes your money (in rupees) and invests it in overseas funds (after converting it to dollars).

The overseas #funds, in turn, invest in one-year US Treasury bonds.

Where will Bandhan Mutual Fund invest your money? 👇

The #AdaniGroups Saga- For Naive #Investors. A thread

I, Mr A(#Adani) have 100 chips. By #Law, I cannot own more than 75, so I hav 73 chips. 27 chips r sold in d market. Anther 15 Chips: My uncle buys them by pretending to b normal people. This is illegal, bt who will catch me?

[1/🧵] @DigiEuro interviewed @moderndosh and @AntonyWelfare on the @Ripple #CBDC-Manager software.

The underlying private #CBDC-ledger based on #XRPL was also heavily discussed.

I summarized the most of the interview for you, along with my personal comments. 🧵👇 Welcome to the Ripple Digital Currency Manager
[2/19] To begin, if you are completely unfamiliar with #CBDCs and the #Ripple solution, here is a nice place to start:
[3/19] One important reason for using a private version of the public #XRPL is that a central #bank needs to be able to control the #money supply.

Why use a private ledger ❓

2/19 As he explains:
#PrivateEquity is taking down Pension Funds as they struggle to keep the game of hot-potato going. “Hot potato” being the business practice of selling slices of companies back and forth to one another at ever higher #valuations.
3/19 The “solution” appears to be PE firms building funds to buy #assets from themselves at possibly fraudulent valuations set by themselves.

🎯Alexis Tsipras: Έδωσαν 19 δισ. ευρώ εγγυήσεις για το σχέδιο "Ηρακλής", για να πάρουν τα funds τα κόκκινα #δάνεια στα 3/5 της αξίας του
Ξεκινήσανε τους #πλειστηριασμούς με έναν νόμο του 2003, που δεν προέβλεπε υποχρεωτικά στάδια ρυθμίσεων και δίνει πλήρη φορολογική απαλλαγή
σε όλες τις πράξεις που διενεργούν τα #funds.
‼️Να μην καταβάλλεται δηλαδή φόρος υπεραξίας στην πώληση, να μην πληρώνεται #ΦΠΑ, να μην καταβάλλεται φόρος για τους τόκους που εισπράττονται από την εξυπηρέτηση των δανείων.
Αντιθέτως, ο νόμος του 2015 που έφερε ο #ΣΥΡΙΖΑ προβλέπει ότι κάθε πράξη και κάθε ενέργεια φορολογείται.
🔺Γι' αυτό και επέλεξαν τα funds το παλιό πλαίσιο. Για να κάνουν πλειστηριασμούς και να βγάζουν χρήμα εύκολα και γρήγορα. Ποια είναι τα αποτελέσματα; 44.000 #πλειστηριασμοί

📢#MiCA is complete!

The landmark #crypto regulation sets out uniform 🇪🇺 requirements for offerors of #cryptoassets and service providers (#CASPs) to apply for authorisation in the Single Market.

👀🧵for a full dive on #MiCA and what it means for the #cryptoindustry.

Even though a better agreement was close last week, 🇫🇷 vetoed it during the 🇪🇺 MS intervention period & raised concerns on USD-denominated #stablecoins used as a "means of #exchange", suggesting a return to their restriction when used for #settlement purposes ❗️

The compromise was to at least clarify that USD-#stablecoins used for spot #trading would NOT be captured.

The final text was approval by #COREPER yesterday and @EP_Economics will do it on 10/10. Final adoption by Ministers and the Parliament’s Plenary will be end of Oct.

4 Common Mistakes to avoid while investing in Mutual Funds in a volatile market 🚫

Retweet (🔃) to spread awareness.

#investing #stocks
1) Sector-specific bets 📍

In bull market, it may seem unwise to diversify your portfolio, when you are seeing some segment of the market is performing exceptionally well, but one gets the importance when the tide of the sector goes out and the prices start tumbling.

The extraordinary returns of sector funds may lure you but remember they are also vulnerable to high losses.

So, it's always advisable to invest in a diversified portfolio, instead of taking concentrated bets on some sectors, especially in a volatile market.

It was evident. Interest rates would rise as #inflation started spiralling.

To ride through the rate hike cycle⬆️, #FloaterFunds were touted as an ideal #investment option.

But, so far, they haven’t done well.

A 🧵on why #FloatingRateFunds haven’t delivered yet.
First, some basics.

When #InterestRates rise📈, bond #prices fall📉. Why? Investors would rather buy new papers at a higher rate than old ones with lower yields.

#FloaterFunds are not impacted by interest rate movement. There’s a simple explanation.👇
As the #InterestRates rise, the yields on floating-rate bonds also increase.⬆️

So, #investors don’t need to sell them to buy new papers offering higher interest rates.

But the converse is true, too. So, when interest rates fall📉, #FloaterFunds become unattractive.

A decade of pension fund growth in Nigeria has prepared the ground for a boom in the country’s mutual fund sector.

parachute or #lifeline bonus because of its ability to support players with additional funds in case they haven’t hit a win with their real money.

The bottom line is that you can withdraw winnings at any point in your play provided you still haven’t tapped into the bonus #funds… However, the moment you start using your bonus balance, all wagers and eventual prizes are considered bonus money, being subject to wagering requirements. You can often hear punters say that they don’t claim welcome deals, giving preference to cashback… options. Well, the truth is that the great bulk of sign-up bonuses are sticky, which means they are non-cashable. You can use them for playing your favorite online slot but once you request a withdrawal, the bonus amount will vanish from your balance.

Thread about trading strategy and fund performance analysis. #tradingstrategy #funds

Advanced performance analysis is fine but nothing beats common sense. Below are some common sense ways of analyzing strategy and fund performance.
1. Annualized return

The strategy must offer an acceptable annualized return subject to constraints. Very low annualized return is undesirable but also high annualized return that comes at high risk is also undesirable and even more so.
Note that even if annualized return is low, the strategy may be acceptable due to the leveragability it offers. Often is better to leverage 2X a strategy with a smooth equity than use one w/o leverage but with volatile equity.

Thanks to @GeoffCutmore, @cnbcKaren & the #SquawkBox team for having me on this morning's show.

We discussed #bonds & #centralbanks, touched on #supplychains & talked of #Growth's vulnerability, #commodities' appeal.

Is your box still backed up in port? How much does the onward haulage cost? What happens to #freight rates after #LNY/#Beijing2022?
The bet is that #energy cannot *possibly* rise as far and fast this year as last, but what about all the other inputs? To what extent are these and other costs yet to be passed on?
