FT WEEKEND Crypto watch Aug 14

Cryptokin, we love you.  Together we are a meme who's time has come.    With love. And legs.  Cryptonauts, we love you for being collectively  Gandi on this whole freedom from fiat rule thingie.  8bb4627643e261e8caee0f9f324cfa1368f23a2907d1b7b5892d681e098fba6b.pngAlong with the peaceful, non-violent overthrow part, baby!! 

Changing the fabric of the FT's crypto coverage, one post at a time.  Wrapped in highbrow love, let us venture where angels fear to tread, the salmon lady awaits.  TBF, she does seem to think crypto = atomics for tradfi, AND it's two months before India's independence ROFL!!!  so let us TRY, try to horse whisper, not just lose our temper. 

The weekend FT!  yay!  Loads of lovely things, news, thoughts.  Abrdn's foray into crypto generally positive news made print, that should look great right. Well, they shrunk the Abrdn pic down.  But they made SURE to print a rare SELL recommendation on Abrdn, #(*$#$(*&!!!!!  c8005d44688e275b25473e11da1881af07e73523bf1b6ade77f22f0e072c43d4.pngwithout deigning to mention the crypto move IN THE SAME ISSUE.  That's just cold, and hostile.   Like calling an 8 AM meeting on a weekend day. 

Wow, NO OTHER CRYPTO in the FT weekend.  That's sad.  Oh, crypto is still creeping into the FT.  FC Barcelona sold off some studio action to crypto Socios.   A letter is printed, sick of only seeing news about Pelosi/Truss/crypto.  Oh ho ho ho!  OK that's a half FU. 

A story about Miami's rise and rise for lawyers of course has to include crypto.  The mayor get's paid in crypto.  To the FT's glee, Miami coin, has, technically, given a pretty fair spread of sig digs, gone to ZERO.  ROFL!!  8390436122415fa9acca89b3699b033baceb8a842b4d0713290288bf6851261c.pngya know what?  We agree, no complaints, gotta give up that one !!! Hurts to not see crypto in the positive headline, but fair play over the eponymous coin.

All caught up!??! still peckish!! Crypto news is more-ish! 

NOT IN THE FT and why not!! 

Polygon is integrating with Mercedes and Disney and generally kicking arse.  Hotbit is still down, it was at least one senior exec gone bad!!! 

Coingecko did a survey.  Nations most interested in crypto?  Nigeria #1!  UAE #2!  But hey, the UK is in the top five, lol.   Here's a page:c944d5f626e570fb10bfa7472f4f939f0f62399aa6a1eb484f90cdc35d24a58f.pngYes, Vietnam wins first mover advantage.  It was a no-brainer for Vietnam.  It's funny, the dong against the dollar looks, wait for it, YES just like Miamicoin!!! 4b4ade2d0ec2caa40e88fa773ea83153739d15c6df08a22047ab3834c9cb3ec1.png

Privacy wars continue.   Wasabi wallets 2.0 is out, uses coinjoin and Tor, will it be banned?  Loads, but none in the FT, all quiet there. 

In reality, ETH is pumping on Merge good tests.  Pharma bro did a crypto rug pull or is even stupider than we think. 

BIG news - Steve freakin Cohen of mighty  giant trading maniacs SAC capital is starting to trade spot crypto!  That's HUGE news.  SAC capital will bring every low latency high speed trading trick in the world with them,  and a wall of money.  it's just what they do.  The tide has turned baby.


Not yet in the FT though !  we send out our love and hope.  And head's up!!4e2f56c18cb2c155fcffdbbaf5d194524065e0f482b229c86f177662a34ab4bd.png

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!
