yesterday I threw out an off the cuff question to @bitfinexed
How much of the redeemed #tether was used to recover and maintain its peg?

The obvious answer is whatever they had to.

I've spent a big chunk of today crunching data to see what answers I could come up with.
Last night I scratched out my hypothesis - to maintain its peg...#tether would need to tap its own cash...can only do that via redemptions and the 'tell' will be burning the tokens like they never existed.
Basis for this thinking is pretty simple. That's what they do when they need cash and lots of it. Remember back in 2018 #novogratz was swooning over the orderly redemption of $700m by #tether.

So it turns out that I don't like ppl calling me an idiot, maybe its my ego, or may be it's the fact that @gauravsabnis is more interested in the politics of the country he left rather than the country he pledged allegiance to, and is spreading #FUD so I'm going to go #CobraKai
maybe calling someone idiot can be shrugged off, but implying that I am somehow associated to his version of Indian "nazi" is not, also coming from an Associate Professor at a reputed business school, is not Image
Obviously it has affected my mental health, and he should apologize for likening me to a "malicious idiot" and some one associated with fringe nationalist groups in my country of origin.

RDV à ne pas manquer chaque dimanche le stream de @sam_jdc dans la dernière édition j'ai constaté l'intérêt mais aussi l'inquiétude autour de l'écosystème @terra_money de la parts de personnes qui ne voient #TERRA que par le prisme @anchor_protocol
Pour répondre à la question posé pendant l'émission : à quoi sert $UST à part faire du #yield sur @anchor_protocol ? Ne vous arrêtez pas à la devanture de la boutique avec ce joli néon bleu affichant cet énorme et trop beau pour être vrai 20%
Pour répondre à la question voici une liste non exhaustive des usages de $UST car concrètement UST sert à tous dans l'écosystème et s'étends à tous les autres

BREAKING: A gloomy, overcast day in #Kiev. #Ukraine's capital stands precariously at the edge of #war. #Russian president Vladimir #Putin declared a military offensive earlier today. There are reports of shelling, air strikes and casualties across Ukraine. A developing 🧵. 1/
Speaking to @SkyNewsBreak, a former Vice PM of #Ukraine warned that Putin won't stop at Kyiv. She reported shelling and bombing in Kyiv, where she resides, and appealed for swift, decisive action from the West. Notably, she mentioned the #SWIFT payments system as a tool. 2/
No one can doubt the resolve of the Ukrainian people in the face of adversity. But their #military is no match for #Russia. So cutting them off from the SWIFT payments settlement system could force the Russians into stepping back. But will the #US and #EU take that step? 3/

If you enjoyed yesterday's thread, that was really just a starter. Here I draw out the real issues with NFTs, taken from @FoldableHuman 's video.

If you doubt my intentions, read my bio.

Once again I have to warn you: BIG #FUD AHEAD
Not for the faint of heart...
(2 / 10) Toxic positivity: I will admit, negative comments are often dismissed as FUD, NGMI, HFSP. Positive comments are biased, as extremely incentive driven. Slogans like "Not financial advice" or "Probably nothing" have become meaningless.
(3 / 10) Vulnerability of tokens pointing to images (or other data) stored on off-chain servers and accessible through HTTP.
Even if stored on peer-to-peer servers like IPFS, tokens are not cryptographically linked to the data.

@FoldableHuman accuses us of “toxic positivity” in his popular video… With this thread I prove him wrong: some of us do critically appraise FUD.

This thread will only highlight the topics of #Ethereum, #stablecoins and #DeFi
(2 / 6) I know what you’re thinking, “look at his smug face”, but within 2h of overtly biased hate-filled rambling, he made some good points, but his conclusions are wrong - they do not prove we will fail, they just suggest how we might improve.

🧵 THREAD N°15 : le langage crypto

On arrive à la moitié de ce challenge de 30 jours de threads, il est temps de faire une petite pause dans notre apprentissage avec un thread plus léger !

Aujourd'hui, on fait un petit tour du langage de la crypto 👇
1/ En faisant vos recherches ou en trainant sur Twitter, vous êtes forcément tombés sur un tas d'expressions type #DYOR ou #WAGMI sans forcément toutes les comprendre.

Maintenant, vous saurez ce que ça veut dire.

$LUNA has added more than 13,800% to its value over the past 12 months, and predicted to grow 350% by the end of 2022.

Easy and simple explanation on why you should not underestimate the 2nd largest blockchain in #DeFi Today ! ⬇️🧵
1. The decentralized finance space is one of the biggest winners this year.
A recent report revealed that the total value locked (TVL) in DeFi #protocols rose by $100 billion in 2021. While $ETH remains the leading DeFi blockchain, Terra is the biggest winner.
2. @terra_money is an algorithmic #stablecoin platform that works on a Proof of Stake (PoS) #blockchain infrastructure.
$LUNA is the native #token of Terra and is used in the issuance of stablecoins, as a price stability mechanism, and also for staking and network governance.

It's been over a week since #FUD and #fear started in the #terra ( $LUNA ) ecosystem - $MIM drama.

Despite this we only had ONE DAY in which the amount of $UST disappeared from circulation. Every other day caused an increase in the supply of $UST and the burning of $LUNA

All previous algorithmic stablecoins have collapsed - #TRUE !

..but no one talks about why they fell.
The answer is NO UTILITY!

@terra_money main task is to create an ecosystem that will be encouraged by utility. This is the main task for the coming years.
We broke the $UST peg

NOT because of the $LUNA price, but because of people's fear and temporary escape from $UST caused by $MIM fear.

The larger the $LUNA ecosystem -> greater protection -> the more stable the system is.

1/ Hola, amigo. Ensayo un hilo-punteo rápido dominguero para darte contexto.

Tus preguntas y afirmaciones a priori no son para nada boludas.

(qué bueno que seas biólogo y estés interesado, la visión multidisciplinar en cripto es importante)


"La fuente de creación de distintas criptomonedas es infinita"

Entiendo que te referís a que se puede crear un token "de la nada". Y así es. El código es open source. Existen tutoriales dónde se explica cómo crear un token en 10 minutos.
3/ Y hasta se puede comercializar en cualquier exchange descentralizado con sólo tener el contrato que identifica el token. Pondré como ejemplo el @conchitatoken. Prestá atención al disclaimer del exchange descentralizado. La responsabilidad está en el usuario. Destaco esto...

[#Thread] Mes chers amis, j'ai décidé de rajouter une petite couche et de remuer un peu le couteau dans la plaie.

Le sujet : Que faire lors de la baisse du marché des #crypto / #Bitcoin ?

Rangez vos mouchoirs, séchez ces vilaines larmes et voyons comment profiter de la baisse⬇️
Les yeux fixés sur les graphiques du #Bitcoin et l’angoisse de ne pas avoir vendu quand c’était au plus haut sont le quotidien des #investisseurs #crypto.

La « petite correction » sur le Bitcoin et les cryptomonnaies vous effraie et vous ne savez pas quoi faire ?
Nous allons voir les #erreurs qu’il ne faut pas faire ainsi que les bonnes habitudes à mettre en place pour en profiter de la #baisse des marchés plutôt que subir.

Sachez qu'une correction est naturelle après plusieurs semaines de hausses consécutives sur les #cryptomonnaies.

1/ The journey of @iota [MONSTER THREAD] - From the top 5 token to the top 50 token and why it will at least get back into the top 5.
2/ #IOTA was founded in 2015 with the aim and vision of developing a #DLT protocol in which people and machines, can communicate via data & value tx permissionless, feeless, efficient and with the least technical requirements -
With a high level of security, decentralization…
3/ …and Scalability➡️blockchain trilemma.
They also wanted to develop their own #smartcontracts, #oracles, #identity solutions, etc.

At that time they already attracted the attention of the then much smaller #crypto community.

👀I noticed that a lot of #FUD in #blockchain #community comes from a lack of #knowledge so here I am to help everyone interested in #technology and #money, not #FUD, accusations and fear.
1. Knowing the #smartcontract address of the token before listing means almost nothing, it's just another contract on the #blockchain without any functionality,

I can make thousands of those every day #shitcoin 😅
2. To make such #smartcontract tradeable it has to be added to decentralized exchange - #DEX which is implementation of #AMM #algorithm, most of dexes are working based on pairs... so we need to have #pair to be tradeable on DEX 🥰

Bon, 8'20", @YvesMarignac dit qu'il y a peu de technologies qui entraînent autant de dépendance que le nucléaire. Alors je sais pas vous mais j'en vois deux tout de suite sans chercher très loin :

- Le gaz Russe pour le programme énergétique allemand
- L'électronique asiatique
Avant ce timecode, à savoir qu'il parle de l'intrication entre nucléaire civil et militaire, du problème de la prolifération de ce dernier et que c'est en parti pour ça que le nucléaire représente 3% de l'énergie produite dans le monde. Mouais.

NO Shib tokens were added to the circulating supply.

So to fight the fud, myself, @kaaldhairya & @ShibInformer are each offering 1B $Shib to anyone that can prove through an Etherscan transaction that tokens were added to the #Shib circulating supply. Allow me to recap plz: 1/6
If you're new to SHIBARMY please understand that our biggest FUD has revolved around us being scammers when an actuality we are just normal people trying to make a difference. Ryoshi once said to me in private that it's hard for people to believe we are what we say we are. 2/6
Incredible stats like being up 6 Million percent this year or never paying an exchange for a listing, or the fact that we are fully decentralized ( as Ryoshi once said "people do whatever they want") is striking and impressive. Where could we be in eight years? Or 8 months! 3/6

I started a #cryptotwitter account to be plugged into the community. I love #crypto, I really am horrible with people so I stick to research and deep dives, facts and occasional hopium opinions based on data.

I will say months ago, I knew there would be a major shakeout.
I've been a long-time advocate for $XRP and $VET. I immediately saw the value of #XRP due to the problems it solved within financial systems. The fact that anywhere in the world I could bridge #XRP to any currency I needed anytime, wish I knew about it when I was overseas.
#XRP can literally save governments trillions of dollars over time in transfer fees and rate changes, the current system doesn't work and the taxpayers are left to pay the difference.

1/10-Going through the 2nd week of the biggest corrections of this cycle (~ 50%), the ultimate questions in market are,
-Whether the cycle is over?
-How are the Exchange Flow conditions?
-What is the picture that on-chain metrics are giving about market in long-term?
2/10- All-Exchanges Reserve has been declining since the beginning of this bull market. This trend was then upward on April 24th after prices dropped 64K > 50K [1A] = on-chain bearish sign.
3/10-Overall increasing level of bitcoin reserve on exchanges was due to Derivative-Exchanges (@Binance, @Bitrex )[1B]. The interesting point to notice here was the uninterrupted downtrend of bitcoin reserve on Spot-Exchanges (@Coinbase, @Kraken)[1C].

@michael_saylor This is how Lithium mining for Tesla serves >> The biggest environmental danger posed by lithium mining is the amount of water the process uses up: an estimated 500,000 gallons of water per ton of lithium extracted. A single EV has roughly 10kg/22 pounds of lithium in it.
@michael_saylor A ton of lithium metal is only enough to build about 90 electric cars and a million cars requires about 60,000 tons of LCE. Per Elon’s target to hit 30M+ cars in next 5-7 years which roughly is 1.8 million tons of LCE. Elon must stop this immediately!! If so concerned 🤷🏻‍♂️
@michael_saylor @elonmusk We can #HODL longer than you can #FUD 👊🏻

Long live #Bitcoin

Bonjour à tous ! Le premier thread a suscité de l’intérêt chez beaucoup d’entre vous. Je publie donc le deuxième volet avec : Les cycles du marché et leur psychologie.
On montera en puissance au fur et à mesure pas de panique.

C'est parti ! 🖊️
Tout objet au sens large dans ce monde suit un cycle naturel qui structure ce dernier. Un nouveau cycle de marché peut se former lorsqu'une innovation technologique ou un changement de réglementation du marché perturbe les tendances existantes et en crée de nouvelles (Schumpeter)
On distingue 4 phases dans un cycle de marché :

1⃣ Introduction
2⃣ Croissance
3⃣ Maturité
4⃣ Déclin

Ces 4 phases structurent le marché et peuvent permettre aux investisseurs de se situer.

By now I’m sure most of you have heard the superb, milestone #Bitcoin debate between @nic__carter and @profplum99 on the @ttmygh podcast. 1/

A Thread 👇

Here's a link if you haven't:
Of all the points discussed, there is one immediate concern that must be addressed: #Tether. It’s easy to have a knee-jerk response in anger to @profplum99 for making the challenge, but his concerns about whether there are sufficient reserves backing #Tether are noteworthy. 2/
Furthermore, Nic does not dispute the broader reserve concern, pointing out this it is unknowable at this moment.

It’s time to “hone the sword” once and for all and strengthen the case for crypto by determining whether #Tether is actually being counterfeited to... 3/
