#Bombshell: Ex-#DisneyStudios CEO, #RichardCook was found on the flight logs for #JeffreyEpstein’s #LolitaExpress to travel to #LittleSaintJames. #Disney owns #ABC who buried #Epstein’s crimes while children got raped & murdered! Cook started #Legendary pictures owned by #China!
I definitely think there is something fishy here. #DickCook started off as a monorail operator at #Disneyland. How does someone go from running a train at an amusement park to heading distribution for Disney films within 10 years? Are they promoting #Pedophiles from within?!
Correction to the original tweet, #DickCook started #DickCookStudios w #China and worked with #LegendaryPictures in 2011 after #Disney.

1/ #Bitfinex & #Tether systematically take apart the NYAG's latest claims:

-ECPs are foreign entities
-No personal or subject matter jurisdiction
-No NY customer has suffered
-Tether has never had a problem with redemptions. Period
-USDT has not been proven to be a commodity
2/ The ECPs are all foreign entities:

"Bitfinex and Tether do not transact with any New York ECPs. All references to New York-based trading or virtual currency firms … refer to foreign entities"
3/ No NY customer has been identified by the OAG as having suffered any loss or harm from the CryptoCapital problems or the Bitfinex/Tether loan transaction

1/ A few observations on #bitcoin, #tether and #crypto regarding what happened in the last 30 days or so. $BTC $ETH
2/ Obviously we all saw that, despite the unwillingness of #tether to provide an audit, there now seems to be enough public or non-public information available to the NYAG for them to allege that $USDT were, at least for a time, not backed up with USD.
3/ Furthermore, the cited conversation between Oz and Merlin shows beyond reasonable doubt (to me) that the #bitfinex/#tether complex engaged in market manipulation to avoid what would be a black-swan event for them

1/Given the recent news around #tether and #bitfinex, we wondered whether the more professional BTC investors would become more cautious - presumably inclined to take the @NewYorkStateAG action as no ordinary #FUD the retail crypto is so used to brushing off. Not really, it seems
2/In the wake of #Fidelity or #TDAmeritrade offering trading and storing of bitcoin, #CME futures is still the biggest market for US institutions to get exposure to #bitcoin price action.Commitment of Traders reports by #CFTC reflect trader positions by end of business on Tuesday
3/Reports come out every Friday to avoid market abuse. @krugermacro suggested using them as a proxy for institutional adoption, which was also referenced in the influential recent report by @tuurdemeester and @MLescrauwaet. We've also been tracking COT positions. Take a look

If I had to guess, my likelihood is 60/40 that the top of this run is in for #bitcoin. Always can be another squeeze up to the $6k area of course, but my personal opinion is that last move was caused by bots (and FOMO) blindly following what amounts to a bank run on #bitfinex
If you actually read the NY AG allegations and then drop the idea that this is just some crusade against #crypto from evil regulators but accept that they probably have something to back it up, coupled with missing audits from #tether it seems pretty obvious what happened:
#tether and #bfx are one firm. They printed $USDT without having the actual USD to back it up. Then they used these to buy $BTC and push up its price. As is to be expected, if you call the shots and know where price will go, you can profitably speculate.

A quick summary of the wp:
-At least 95% of the unfrozen funds will be used to buy back and burn the #LEO. iFinex has the right to do so in the following 18 months

-If they get back the hacked #bitcoin, at least 80% of it will be used to buy back and burn the token, 18 months
-LEO will be a key part of the iFinex ecosystem

-Lower trading fees, the different layers of discounts are explained in details in the wp 📰
-Discounts when taking out loans

-Discounts for deposits & withdrawals, see details in wp

-Lower fees for #Bitfinex derivatives trading

-Same benefits for Ethfinex & Eosfinex

Brief reality check on what caused last 10 days of #bitcoin upside. Sure seems driven by #tether fear and people moving their money off #bitfinex $USDT (on a potentially bankrupt exchange) into $BTC and out to a safe place. Funds may not be #SAFU. Below #bfx to #bitstamp premium.
According to @thetokenanalyst, #bitfinex had net #bitcoin outflows of 112,500 $BTC since #tether news broke. That's 620m USD roughly. Assuming #bfx data accurate it would be entire traded volume in BTC to stablecoins since then. Bankrun in slow-motion with no one around noticing.
Further point on this - I have never seen positioning in #bitcoin on #bitmex be so Bullish (ie 1.7x Longs/Shorts) but at the same time seen mex futures in such strong backwardation (ie discount to present). Means market really wants $BTC now, but in three months - not so much.

#Bitcoin Short-Squeeze Warning:
The chances of a short-squeeze is relatively high. It also looks like the longer we remain in sideways above $5,200 the more likely the shorts will get as dangerously high as the August or December 2018 squeezes tradingview.com/x/PTqtC5iX $BTCUSD $BTC
Bitcoin Bitfinex shorts still adding up and the Premium has reached an all time high today. Time to watch closely: We either pull back hard from $5,800s to $5,300 or experience the squeeze by end of day tomorrow #Bitcoin #Bitfinex #Tether $USDT $BTCUSD
tradingview.com/x/K8aSuor9
The short-squeeze played out nicely. However, shorts remain quite high which means we will be heading higher over the weekend to $6,700-6,800 on Bitfinex or $6,400-6,500 Bitstamp before a major pull back. tradingview.com/x/brmTYXwp #Bitcoin #Bitfinex $BTCUSD $BTC #Crypto

1/ STUNNED but not surprised by #Bitfinex #Tether news out of #NewYork. I'll let other cryptolawyers analyze it but here are two macro thoughts: (1) There's a big double standard here. (2) Exchanges, clean up your act--cryptographically prove your solvency
2/ First, the double-standard. Why didn't the NY AG throw the Martin Act at Merrill Lynch for doing something actually quite similar from 2009-12? Seriously, why the double standard??? Quoting the SEC's press release here: sec.gov/news/pressrele…
3/ "The maneuver freed up billions of dollars per week from 2009-12 that Merrill Lynch used to finance its own trading activities. Had Merrill Lynch failed in the midst of these trades, the firm’s customers would have been exposed to a massive shortfall in the reserve account."

1/ The article first discusses many, often separately reported, facts about Tether and Bitfinex, i.e. Paradise papers, loss of banking, break with audit company, +800m tethers in Jan, tetherreport.com, and adds all sorts of details to provide an in-depth longread.
2/ While doing research into Tether and Bitfinex, we stumbled upon an ING bank account. The article particularly describes results of subsequent research steps taken by Thomas on this Dutch link. It provides some new insights, the main takeaways are outlined below.
