A beginner's guide to securities in the world of #crypto! ๐Ÿš€

๐Ÿ”’ What is a #security?

In simple terms, a security is a type of financial asset or investment instrument.

It represents something of value that you can trade, like stocks or bonds. ๐Ÿ“Š๐Ÿ’ฐ
๐Ÿ”’ How is a #crypto determined to be a security?

Well, it depends on its characteristics and how it's offered to investors.

In the US, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) uses the "Howey Test" to evaluate this. ๐Ÿงช
๐Ÿ”’ The #Howey Test asks:

Does the investment involve putting money into a common enterprise with the expectation of profits primarily from the efforts of others?

If the answer is yes, it's likely considered a #security. ๐Ÿ“โœ…

The Manhattan Project Hack: Atomic Walletโ€™s Nemesis
Atomic Wallet, the prominent non-custodial wallet with over 5 million users, has reportedly been subjected to an explosive cyber-attack. Users took to Twitter with some reporting complete losses of their crypto portfolios.โ€ฆ Image
At the time of writing this article, speculation seems to be that the attack could be a supply chain hack. This would suggest that Atomicโ€™s source code was tampered with on the server side with users unwittingly updating to or downloading the maliciously affected version.
While the exact details and fallout are still unclear, some users have reported losses โ€œexceeding six figuresโ€. This comes at a challenging time for Atomic Wallet, as theyโ€™re already under the microscope for liquidity issues with their native AWC token, and the listing of $BEN.

I've been seeing a lot on #BRC20
and #Bitcoin Ordinals and I'll be honest, I don't have a clue what these were. So I decided to change that.

Let's talk about it! ๐Ÿงต

Understanding BRC-20 Tokens and Bitcoin Ordinals ๐ŸŸ ๐ŸŸข

#crypto #cryptothread
BRC-20 tokens are a new experimental standard for creating and transferring tokens on the #Bitcoin blockchain. They work similarly to Ethereum's ERC-20 tokens but with some differences. However, it's important to note that BRC-20 tokens are still in the experimental stage.
BRC-20 tokens were made possible through the Ordinals protocol, which allows for the inscription of data on individual satoshis (the smallest unit of Bitcoin). This enables the creation of fungible tokens on the Bitcoin network. #Ordinals #Bitcoin

1/10 ๐Ÿงต๐Ÿ”ฎ #CryptoNews: Gemini's latest update states that Digital Currency Group (#DCG) missed a $630M payment due to Genesis last week ๐Ÿ’”

๐Ÿค” As complex as it sounds, let's break it down in #crypto language


2/10 Gemini is now working alongside #Genesis, #DCG, and their creditors to provide some leeway to DCG to prevent a default. This could be a game-changing move in the crypto lending space. ๐ŸŽฒ
3/10 Both Genesis and #CoinDesk are owned by DCG. This is significant because it means there's a lot of interconnection within the crypto industry, and one misstep can cause a domino effect. ๐ŸŒ

Are you looking for the next $PEPE ??

If yes, then this post is for you and it's important you read this ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡

Here's a ๐Ÿงต:

In the #MemeCoinSeason it's easy to get caught up in the hype of a single project or coin.
#FOMO can be strong, and it can be tempting to go all in on a project that seems to be blowing up.

However, it's important to remember that investing is a long game, and chasing after the next big thing can often lead to disappointment and loss.
This is especially true when it comes to meme coins, like $PEPE, which has blown up but is now unpredictable.

One of the most important lessons to learn as an investor is to avoid putting all your eggs in one basket.

๐Ÿชข Chainge's cross-chain roaming is the only universal interoperability solution that is decentralized, multi-operational and 100% secure.

๐Ÿค“ Let's get techy and find out why + how any project can go full #crosschain & aggregate top liquidity by integrating our SDKs:

๐Ÿงต๐Ÿ‘‡ Image
So why is our interoperability solution superior?

1โƒฃ Multiple cross-chain operations performed simultaneously. Assets become chain-agnostic.

Eg: #USDT spread across 12 CHAINS can be instantly "bridged" to 1 destination chain OR swapped with one tap, within 2 minutes.
2โƒฃ Chainge is the ONLY aggregator that CAN aggregate liquidity cross-chain. Meaning we are the most liquid DEX aggregator on the market, offering the absolute best prices.

A cross-chain aggregated swap implies it being split on multiple liquid chains: Image

Did you know that humans often favor action over inaction for the sole reason of doing SOMETHING?

A๐Ÿงตon the behavioral phenomenon that could be costing your portfolio dearly ๐Ÿ“‰ Image
Let's begin by familiarizing ourselves with some typical -Action Bias- daily scenarios:

๐Ÿ‘‰ The driver who is late to a meeting and is constantly changing car lanes in traffic when there is no clear indication that one is faster than the other.
๐Ÿ‘‰ The desperate football coach making unplanned tactical changes during a football match to avoid the perception by fans and management that "nothing is being done".

I'm calling it now. The #FTX implosion was supposed to be a coordinated controlled demolition of retail crypto followed by CBDC rollout/regulatory crackdown by Biden Admin, SEC, WEF, et-al, but it went off before they could all get out of the way. ImageImageImage
Complicit VC's helped suck retail liquidity out of market, much going to Democrats in the form of donations. SBF himself was the 2nd largest donor to Democrats behind Soros. His aunt Barbara is WEF, and launched Dem leaning political operations just before launch of #FTX. ImageImage
Meanwhile, SBF and FTX were consulting with SEC on new regs, hiring former CFTC employees, testifying on Capitol Hill, and exhibiting some extraordinary regulatory capture cred for a 3 year old start-up run from a swingers dorm in the Bahamas. ImageImageImageImage

1/12 What would happen with CT and #crypto as an industry if @elonmusk really bought @Twitter?

Will the #cryptocommunity see a new concept of Twitter? Will the market change the course and get bullish?

Let's find out together!

A thread by @esatoshiclub! ๐Ÿงต
2/12 The acquisition of Twitter has been very messy so far. Leaked texts, trials, lawsuits and a bunch of nonsense bull*hit.

However, #ElonMusk sold @Tesla stocks in bulk, getting nearly $6.8 million in cash. So, we have reasons to believe he will go for it!
3/12 Before getting into the consequences of that investment, let's remember the connection between #Tesla's CEO and #cryptocurrency.

@elonmusk is well known for pumping the price and getting profit out of #memecoins. Yes, we are talking about @dogecoin.

There is a lot of talking around #Footprint #charts in #cryptotwitter lately. Many people smash them on their templates without even knowing the basics of #DOM reading, making many mistakes when interpreting them. This thread will get you covered ๐Ÿงต๐Ÿ‘‡
#Footprint candlesticks were first introduced to the public by Market Delta back in 2003. The most famous one is the Bid x Ask split view and most traders' first approach with Footprints is with this kind of visualisation, which is helpful on thick, liquid markets, like bonds. Image
One of the most common mistakes that inexperienced traders make is comparing orders that hit the Bid (left side) with those that lift the offer (right side) horizontally.

The interaction among market participants always happens diagonally from the Bid to the Ask.
