GEP TRUST: Avoid Crypto Taxes

BOTTOM LINE UP FRONT (BLUF)

It's about time Ray has decided to dive in a little deeper into Digital Assets; slow then all of a sudden right? The markets are back over $2T and seems to have some gas - thanks to Do Kwon who has indicated he will buy $10B to back the Terra ecosystem ($UST $LUNA.) Listen to Pomp talk about it below.

It will become an arms race to see which country can HODL the most Bitcoin. As Sophie said, Crypto "already mainstream." Digital assets are taking the globe by storm so stay calm and HODL on. Listen to the What Bitcoin Did podcast as Peter talks with Margot Paez about the progressive view of Bitcoin.
