FT Crypto Watch Aug 15

Crypto kin we love you!  Thank you for being part of the greatest revolution of the century, probably the millennium!! Take care of yourselves, and be well!  We NEEEED y'all!!! As well as love ya. 

Sorry to say we have white line fever from driving all day, hands wet on the wheel...  Wish we could watch  good ol "Jet Lag Theatre" timelapse flowers & clouds on Mt. Fuji on Tokyo hotel cable, but since we can't do that right handy, here's the equivalent, playing the earworm Carpenters of the last hundred miles (ok this cover is half spanish Pink Martini, but the images are sweet & mindless which we need right now)  Love y'all SO  much for reaching the 666 followers mark!  Thank you thank you!   We started to joke about it - 667 is the NEIGHBOR of the beastie, +1 666 is the area code etc but then the wind spilled mouthwash on our contacts & we realized no teasing about any of that!! Just love & thanks!  Eyes on the prize!! 

The prize of better crypto fabric in the FT, one proud chitpost at a time, darling sweeties!  Let's hit it!  Here's a fun front page about crypto but doesn't say crypto769b04ab6211228428b1fd6c2eea9f416cc5c1254bf9f2896d33150288f9bf76.pngBoy it makes sense to give the least trusted class total & absolute  fiat printing power, huh??  what could go wrong??  But wait - LOL the dog that didn't bark, FT?  That "28 nations" sounds familiar, yeah? oh HERE we go NOT in the FT lol 65a5beb3dd6cb860b694771b9926cb50f4cc12187a4bd7ae303af09cd4526ceb.pngwow, is that right?  Journalists are even LESS trusted than politicians, but somehow by "accident" not on this graphic?? ROFL!!!! Also NOT in FT - same source tho ah ha ha ha 4c847fc0d2fd27ae351d6bdba98551c2a2110425d737f09dd9efea787e23ba9b.pngYeppers, THERE go the journalists,  rock bottom.  Source:  Ipsos LMAO!!   Zowie, we wonder wonder wonder WHY no one would trust editors that might leave out something like that har har har har Jeez, we thought we would get further than this before getting fouled out!!! Sorry where were we?  La la la la la !!  af09d405e1dac3167cc1ae7a420708644b5da7749542ca98e052344c26f9bd48.pngGood things, not bad, SING of happy, not sad!!   OK let's try again, CRYPTO in the lovely FT: 

UK inflation hits a 40 year high of 9.4, beating the US & EU!! 

The FT shortlists Business Books of the Year !  There will be Crypto THERE HUH?? hmm wait, Vitaleks big book on how ETH will rewrite biz is due out NEXT month.  The Truth About Crypto    hit paperback last month though!! 

That's all too much to ask of the pink lady.  But sing of love, there could be love for you & meee!! The FT does shortlist, dear readers will remember, Ed Chancellor's "The Price of Time," though they call it a "polemic" against the easy money of the BoE.  Link below, Ed called BTC a bubble in 2017 (which was kinda true by 2018 standards lol) but in 2021, Ed agreed whatever doesn't kill BTC makes it stronger!!   No mention of crypto in the FT's book list.  Which is NUTS, the FT missed the greatest asset of this century and is now missing the business   implications.  But we love them anyhoo!! 3fa9613a572b2a59be70d305148aabadcf130a0af30f03854db3139bb0e9613d.png

Crypto that SAYS crypto in the FT!?!?!  Nope none of that in the FT PRINT version.  One article might give insight why: 7d9b44691f782353553b58ba4c3c3a5441976c48a845445ce69768d369158336.pngOnly fools are working!! OK, true enough, here we are!!!  But lord knows there is crypto news aplenty out there. NOT in the FT:  Shiba is pumping.  Monero got over the loss of Fluffypony and pulled a major 72 dev upgrade. That's big relevant news given Tornado's sanctions.  BTC tested 25K. 

Mark Cuban was big into Voyager and is now a hurting puppy facing a 5 billion lawsuit for shilling with the Dallas Mavericks!! Yow!!   Dear readers know it's extra funny that Mark ultimately told everyone to give him money so he could give it to Broken Arrows to take a flying fart at the Luna moooooon!!!!   Nonsense there.  Strong anti crypto news tho, FT, c'mon, looks GOOD!!!   IS GOOD!!! 

Galaxy is NOT gonna take BitGo!!  Binance is GOOD TO GO in Khazakhstan!!  The beat goes ON!! 

Closer to FT home,  UK Channel isles Jersey and Guernsey are seducing cryptonauts away from the Caymans and Bermuda!! 

New news news.  Online IN the FT  we get one serving of thin gruel (no anorexia jokes plz)1b0bfb4c9c4470d30136bc11769d83d500b866e1e3a9ce69483099b3e626aeeb.pngTLDRFlowcarbon is a startup trying to do good with carbon credits.  Phil, their head of crypto, is helping RedemptionDAO to try and buy a block.  It's hard going, carbon credit experts Sylvera say it's hard to imagine carbon credit devs getting the funds to get through the "catastrophic" cash flow issues. 

The REAL story:  this story is only tangentially about crypto.  NOT that THAT stops the FT from putting a crypto plug at the end LOL guess they know crypto is on ALL the  happening searchlists.!!! Plug is for a podcast.  Sorry dear readers, can't help y’all out there.  Y'all think we are crabby NOW, try us when forced to listen instead of read, our ADD can't handle it.  Too slow, too slow, #$(*&#$(& !!!!!   too slow, wait missed it!! lol!! 

Judges say we can't dish any FU's to a slightly feelgood crypto story while we are singing Carpenter hits.  We argue:  but the storyline is doom for the crypto saviours Judges!! We lose. Oh well.  La la la 0dd28738aa336b00f1518d7c543419f9fd168adc88cfa2bd4fbfa596db636f10.pngwe know we need to be in love, we know we've wasted too much time!!  

C'mon FT, have a love affair with cryptoc545603783997a5384d51ed287d83a35754e5b69a7a528affd690c28f3f903c2.pngClearly y'all know it will help draw eyes, lol!!  And ya got nuthin to lose, lol, trust in journalists can ONLY go UP from here!!!  OK that was mean, we'll quit laughing, honey, sorry,  obviously a sore subject, very bad salmon whispering   on our part, just kidding, ya know we can't help ourselves.  

kidding NOT KIDDING!! Have a fling!! Platonic if already spoken for --- nah, dump that tradfi loser!!       ROFL

ok, looks like the highway hypnosis won't get any better tonight, time to go shut our eyes and see the road!

National Merit got this punk rocker to Oberlin, and Wall Street fintech gave up world tours and an NYU MBA. I am a Bitcoin true believer. Bitcoin is deeply revolutionary in a way we always prayed tech would be. Keep the baby Faith!

FT WATCH - the Financial Times on Crypto!!!
FT WATCH - the Financial Times on Crypto!!!

The WSJ turned into USA today - which leaves the FT at the top of the heap for serious financial news! Join us for a semi-serious monitoring of the FUD & hate the FT now showers on crypto. Dear readers know we love that pink newspaper but boy howdy does the FT despise crypto--- it's funny. The old guard always fights the new guard. The FT does it eruditely, with misleading comments, fun graphs, and outright lies (usually) attributed to crypto's greatest enemies!
