The question for the #ethereum community is, how do we do #defi without creating another ICO boom and bust like #YOLO situation... IMO the main cause of current eth/btc price being out of whack with the immense technical progress in and around eth over the last two years.
#bitcoin is overpriced because there's been very little technological progress. But finance isn't just about technology. It's also about trust. #bitcoin is overpriced vs better tech including #ethereum BECAUSE nothing changes, same as the UK and US high street banks.
Finance isn't the best space to move fast and break things. Alright it isn't health care or space flights and #innovation is never risk free but its important for the community to call out things that don't make sense

I never Trust 4chan, 8chan and any other internet forum board along with sites Reddit, voat, mewe, gabai.. I am always on guard with Twitter, Google, YouTube, Facebook and others. Internet produces EVIL people. Look at how #Asia controls the forum boards.👇
And when you see your blocked by someone you do not even know.. you know why. Something evil is brewing and I bet I know what it is. Tick Tock

1/ Draft of a Congressional bill titled "Keep Big Tech Out of Finance" Act is significant.
Note out this announced is right on the heals of Trump tweeting his feelings about #Bitcoin and #Cryptocurrency in general and specifically called out #Facebook #Libra...
2/ FB jumping in the financial industry with their 2billion userbase to tap into *is* a wakeup call. They laughed at #Bitcoin because it was small, but with FB they see a threat.

I'm no fan of #ZuckBucks but I think the #Crypto industry needs to get on #TeamFB with this bill.
3/ This knee jerk reaction to #BigBanks not liking their domain being disrupted by #BigTech, so they're getting Congress involved. It's clearly an overreach in govt trying to coddle #BigBanks, a relationship that needs to seperated more through disruptive tech, not less.

#bitcoin could ossify today & still win the SoV use case based on its existing characteristics (scarcity, censorship resistance) & network effect / ubiquity.

Many “dev-centric” minds miss this b/c they only view #blockchain from a developer mindset & not a financial/social one.
“Do not try and do everything. Do one thing and do it well.” - Steve Jobs

#bitcoin is the 1st uninflatable, uncensorable, unconfiscatable asset the worlds ever known. It’s also the best tool to ever exist for each of those characteristics. It’s VERY GOOD as digital gold.
Hash rate at an ATH. Price is returning to ATH w/ a market capitalization of >$200B (6x+ its closest competitor ETH $31B).

1/ My views in EconomicTimes on #Libra: “If @facebook were to design the Libra to be a closed system, only to be transacted on its network and not beyond, #RBI should ideally be less concerned, since the #coin does not engage with the external economy” bit.ly/2Ro8jpC
2/ “If it is not meant to operate in a closed system, then it is exactly the kind of #DigitalAssets that concerns RBI. #regulations as currently drafted seem to indiscriminately apply to both the above examples.”
3/ "The argument that this is a #stablecoin — a #cryptocurrency whose value is pegged to be as stable as the dollar — is unlikely to pass muster with the banking regulator, due to concerns around tax evasion, money laundering and fraud" @ikigailaw

#Libra : Wie #bitcoin nur stabiler? – Die Berichte über die neue digitale Währung von #Facebook und anderen Tech-Unternehmen sowie Zahlungsdienstleistern sprudeln nur so über. Die #BayernLB hat sich ebenfalls durch das Whitepaper gewühlt und kam zu folgenden Ergebnissen: 👇
#Libra ist keine neue Währung, sondern an einen Währungskorb (und damit vor allem an den US-Dollar) gekoppelt. Damit importiert das Libra-System, wie bei herkömmlichen „Currency Boards“, die Geldpolitik von Fed und Co.
Das #Libra-System ist im Kern ein Zahlungssystem wie Paypal, mit dem Unterschied, dass Facebook bereits rund 2 Mrd. User und Messaging-Apps wie Whatsapp hat, in welche #Zahlungsmöglichkeiten implementiert werden können.

1/ #Facebook released their #Libra #cryptocurrency whitepaper today. This is a stable coin governed by a Foundation that is comprised of a handful of the world’s largest corporations
2/ The currency will run on the Libra #blockchain and coins will be backed by assets consisting of bank deposits and government securities that will be issued by the Libra Reserve whose members each invested a minimum of $10M to run a validator node
3/ This pseudo #decentralization is not being brought into the world to ‘empower billions of people’ or ‘help people everywhere live better lives’ as Facebook suggest

1/5 @Buttarelli_G Further concentration of #personaldata poses additional risks to rights & freedoms of individuals. The launch of digital coin #Libra by #Facebook will require careful scrutiny from several enforcement bodies, including data protection authorities #cryptocurrency
2/5 We recognise the potential of new technologies, including, as in the case in question, new applications, which aim to provide financial and #ecommerce services in new or efficient ways.
3/5 However, it would be deeply concerning, e.g. for a company with access to massive volumes of personal information, gathered through its social media platforms and communications services, to be able to combine this information with the tracking of online digital purchases

1/ 6 PREDICTIONS about what @Facebook's #cryptocurrency means. Grab the popcorn bc I analyzed publicly disclosed info to make 6 predictions, of which 2 will be controversial (#2 and #6). @ForbesCrypto #Libra #bitcoin forbes.com/sites/caitlinl…
2/ First prediction: @Facebook's #stablecoin will be a positive force in developing countries. Second: @Facebook will pay #interest to users of its #cryptocurrency, which will eventually lead to populist calls to repeal subsidies at the heart of the US banking system.
3/ It's true that #stablecoin issuers generally pocket the float on the assets backing the coins, but I go out on a limb & predict there's no way @Facebook will be able to pocket these big profits w/o sharing them with users. To be clear I haven't seen @Facebook disclose this.

Perpetual Swaps are expensive to trade!

We compared Futures & Perpetual Swaps to see which is better for #trading
Futures outperformed Swaps in 13 out of 16 months. Irrespective of #bitcoin performance.
GREEN: $BTC monthly returns were +ve
RED: $BTC yielded -ve monthly returns
In DOWN months, i.e. where $BTC monthly returns were negative shorting via Futures would've yielded higher returns

This underperformance makes Perp. Swaps poor instrument for hedging

“Hedging Bitcoin balance by shorting 1x Perpetual Swap” would've cost you roughly 2% per month
For UP months ( where $BTC monthly returns were positive) a levered Long in Futures would have given higher returns.

Funding eats away from the returns of a trade!

Today we will discuss the 51% attacks, which is particularly relevant in light of the issues happened this year with #clo, #etc and #moac.
#51attacks #cryptomythbusters
👇
Many #cryptocurrency “experts” believe that if a user has more than a 51% of the network hash rate, he can do whatever he wants, such as going on a spending spree. But in reality, it’s much different.
Let’s say a miner owns 60% of the network hash rate. This lets him “hold” his blocks and not send them to the network. Instead, he continues mining his own chain by himself. Over a certain period of time, the miner is very likely to create more blocks than the rest of the network
