Are you ready for these next few months in crypto?

There have been so many things leading up to exactly this point in time that it’s very hard for me to not be extremely bullish

Let’s take a deeper look… 🥐
On one hand, we have Bitcoin starting to see levels of attention it hasn’t seen since May.

Lightning network adoption is going parabolic with El Salvador’s recent initiatives

This trend will only continue as more nation states join in and the game theory ensues
Then we have the highly anticipated Taproot upgrade coming for Bitcoin in November.

#Bitcoin doesn’t have upgrades a lot, so when it does, you’ll probably want to pay attention

The major upgrade is set to increase smart contract capability, privacy, & security on the blockchain
We have all of these catalysts for Bitcoin while rumors of an ETF are running rampant.

While previous attempts at an ETF have failed, we are getting a whole lot closer

You didn’t think we would put $BTC on an ETF with Chinese mining centralization + environmental FUD, right?

Q4 is historically bullish for Bitcoin, and we have the macro landscape working for us at the same time, with monetary policy disassociated from reality

I would say things are looking particularly fantastic for Bitcoin at this moment in time
On the other hand, we have Ethereum picking up steam in a bunch of sectors

The explosion of NFTs has brought big players to the blockchain, with new things being announced every day

This has attracted attention from the likes of VISA, GameStop, Budweiser, TikTok, & the NBA.
Furthermore, EIP-1559 has worked behind the scenes to burn $1.8M worth of $ETH in just 68 days.

This is $ETH being removed from the existing supply, that would’ve otherwise gone in to the hands of miners (& likely been sold)

This is going to have astronomical effects with time
Then we have things like VISA planning to build out a layer two network for stablecoins

The worlds largest payments processor has previously purchased a crypto punk, & explored $USDC use cases

It’s obvious institutions are starting to take interest
And of course, we have The Merge for Ethereum, marking the transition to Proof of Stake

It’s getting closer every day.

EIP-1559 in combination with reduced emission from proof of stake will have a massive supply shock for $ETH

It will also help Ethereum scale exponentially

It doesn’t matter which “side” you are on, as the next few months are about to get real.

Years of development and research have led up to this point, & you don’t want to miss it…

I hope you guys enjoy! 🥐

In just 6 months, my Twitter account has grown more than I could’ve ever imagined

It took hours of pure dedication and studying, but I wouldn’t of been able to do it if it weren’t for the other great researchers in the ecosystem sharing their knowledge

This includes… 🥐

Andre Cronje is one of the smartest devs working on Ethereum

-he has 20+ years exp developing, father of yield farming, automation, & solving other critical problems on $ETH

-ocassionally leaks alpha

+ his page offers a unique look inside the DeFi eco…

Squish Chaos, author of the triple halving thesis for $ETH, and many other fantastic threads on everything DeFi

-one of my favorite accounts to follow regularly for well-delivered fundamental analysis

-picks up on unique topics and what is going on in DeFi

Before you read this thread, I ask you to forget everything you know about crypto

By starting from the very beginning we can help to fully grasp the bigger picture at play

Only then can you start to see the true mathematical genius behind Bitcoin…

Inspired by @3blue1brown 🥐
How exactly would 𝘺𝘰𝘶 go about creating a censorship-resistant, decentralized, public network on a global scale?

We can first start with a public ledger that anyone can add lines to, where individuals would transact and settle in fiat currency at a later time

Very quickly…
You’d start to see some very serious issues arise as more and more users come to the ledger for accounting, & that would require trust in each and every one of them

We don’t know if people are being honest when adding new lines of transactions to this ledger

So what do we do?

If you take a step back…

There are so many absolutely insane things that can be done with certain DeFi protocols, yet it still seems no one applies it to the world outside of crypto.

DeFi on $ETH has tons of unique opportunities for you to discover.

I’ll explain below… 🥐
Did you know that a $DAI loan can be converted to fiat & used as a traditional loan?

I know this sounds very obvious, but hear me out.

You can keep exposure to $ETH by borrowing $DAI, then use for loans on cars, houses, etc!

No credit scores, no banks, & lower interest rates…
Did you know that tens of thousands of farmers in Kenya have crop insurance thanks to smart contracts on Ethereum?

Utilizing $LINK oracles, Etherisc provides you with automated protections for a variety of use cases

It has insurance for flight delays, crops, hurricanes, & more!

I wanted to start this off by pointing out the great & professional way of which the United States approached regulation of digital assets

They have proven to be contenders of free markets by empowering this emerging asset class as it grows in the trillions of dollars

(1/13) 🥐
Now that I have your attention…

I’m actually going to go over some of the shocking ignorance displayed by many U.S. officials when discussing blockchain technology

They have almost no idea what they are talking about, and it should be very worrying.

In June, Senator Elizabeth Warren called for a crack down on #Bitcoin over environmental issues

But she failed to mention how much more devastating Christmas lights can be for energy usage

Furthermore, $BTC actually has properties to incentivize use of renewable energy

With all of the NFT hype, I’m surprised to see that ENS names aren’t going absolutely parabolic in use

I believe they are the key for the decentralized internet.

The topics discussed below represent just a fraction of the mind-blowing use cases for the Ethereum Name Service 🥐
If you have no idea what I’m talking about, don’t worry!

The Ethereum Name Service is a simple lookup system, linking certain info to a given name

But it is not just limited to $ETH, it provides a secure & decentralized way to address resources to human readable names anywhere!
With this base foundation and a bit of cryptography, ENS functions in a way that is similar to how website domains work.

What makes this so attractive is that their root of trust is native to $ETH, and holders can host decentralized websites on the next iteration of the web
