The game has changed, trading is passe, welcome yield farming
Here it is, the 16th edition of The FUD, where I talk about the biggest FUD of the week. I help clarify events that crypto twitter decides to escalate. Leggo.
This week has been great, from a troll with a degree of sophistication that words cannot explain to the launch of a new hype season fueled by DeFi and yield farming.
Bitlord — The sir of all sirs
Can’t believe he pulled it off…
The sir has spoken, he changed his profile and dropped the @, Bitlord decided to impersonate Dave Portnoy of Barstool, the sports better-gone stock trader and announce a joint venture with the one and only Peter Brandt, CEO of Factor a global trading firm.
Did not even stop there, he slid into the DM’s and ran with it, this was not a simple troll. The level of sophistication is mesmerizing.
Proud to announce I’ll be going into a joint CBD operation with the one and only legend @PeterLBrandt 💥💥💥— Crypto Bitlord (@Crypto_Bitlord) June 17, 2020
Barstool has a new chapter!
Thank you for opening my eyes Peter! Huge respect ✊
More info coming this week.
This is art.
The Biggest Douche of Them All
There was tragic news this week, we all knew the Robin Hood trader era would end badly, well it was a bit more disturbing than a financial loss.
A young trader, 20 years old, woke up one day to see his account at a huge loss, quickly he felt his. life was over, he did not lose his investment, his balance indicated a loss of $730,000.
He. thought life was over and took his own life away in a moment of despair. To add to the pain of the moment, the loss was not even real, the trader did not understand how options work and the balance was just a figure being displayed until the account settled. Yes, the loss was not real.
Such a sad story, I mean suicide is serious, people listen up, do not waste something as precious as your life over fiat, I know money is very important but if you lose money you can just make more, it honestly is that simple, do not let it dictate your life, money doesn’t make you.. you make it…
Enter the biggest douchebag in the world: Tone Vays.
What the actual goddamn fuck, dude? pic.twitter.com/7mYFSYPs7T— Sherpa (Visit CoinHQ.tv) (@ShitcoinSherpa) June 18, 2020
LIKE SERIOUSLY BRO? How TF did heaven think. this was slightly appropriate, actually, forget that. What kind of human being reads a tragic story like this and. thinks, you know what, this is funny but good time to capitalize on it and give myself a plug.
NOT that I compare myself to Bill Gates but I wonder if he gets these daily on LinkedIn:— Tone Vays – TheFinancialSummit.com (@ToneVays) October 9, 2019
“I see you are involved in Computers, we can make great synergies together, when are you free for a phone call to chat about our interests”
Or Elon Musk about his interest in Space Travel 🤔 pic.twitter.com/y1QDnpmfSt
I mean I thought that was the douchiest thing id ever seen. Well done bro, you’ve outdone yourself. Keep striving for excellence.
The Cat Fight
Since we are talking about Mr. Vays, guess who decided to start a fight she can’t win this week? the queen of cringe, Crypto Finally.

Pour more gas on the fire guys
Hahahahaha and they say us guys are the problem for “women in tech”
But do pour more gas on the fire! pic.twitter.com/gBjtYzqPhM
Ashtoshi has expressed her dislike of thoty behavior in the past, and rightfully so, anyone can show bobs and get engagement, it takes character to do it without. I think Ashtoshi just had enough of it and got bored so she beat Crypto Finally at her own game.
Within minutes every nerd on CT (so everyone) was drooling.
Crypto Finally tried to clap back, no one was taking any of it.
I am sure that if a guy had such a feed, he would get shit for it too.— Bitman (@IamBitmannn) June 20, 2020
I know that several women against you. They post legit content and only have 2-4K followers, while you post selfies where 50% of the pic is your legs, and have 40k.
You are the creator of the problem. pic.twitter.com/cOHSJcIOrq
Do NOT throw stones if you live in a glasshouse.
I can’t believe I don’t get paid to be on this god forsaken app yet pic.twitter.com/hycLivdAn7— Ashtoshi (@ashtoshii) June 23, 2020
And hey numbers don’t lie, guess in a way Ashtoshi proved her point. Good on you, keep slaying.
Paypal to Support Bitcoin
So I thought this would be big, last week we had vending machines accepting Bitcoin, this week it’s PayPal.
PayPal and Venmo are reportedly planning to let users buy and sell crypto https://t.co/me5b2jPzRj— The Block (@TheBlock__) June 22, 2020
Yes, the payment processing giant is going to bring Bitcoin to millions of users globally. Now I believe the deal is more of an ETF sort of Bitcoin product, not actual Bitcoin but still, it’s great exposure.
I can’t wait for the first “Bitcoin” transaction to be reversed by PayPal.
DeFi Moon Season Initiate
Funny how the world works, we knew a bull season was coming, we didn’t know what the next big thing was. People spoke of STO’s and IEO’s.
It was neither, welcome to the new era of DeFi. Trading has become passe, yield farming is the future.
Of course, as with all things happy to ride it up, I mean at its essence the core of DeFi is decentralization and from a personal stance, I support decentralization. DeFi allows people to access traditional financial services such as borrowing and lending, it allows a to borrow against a digital asset effectively allowing them to utilize their funds and pay it back or use it as a too to enter into a leveraged position.
This is all-new, and it will take more than a FUD piece to explain it all, but ill make sure we run a Whisky and Wicks focused on Defi and Yield Farming.
All this talk about DeFi has me feeling nostalgic for Consensus 2019 pic.twitter.com/7s0htEw6sX— Rob “Crypto Bobby” Paone (@crypto_bobby) June 22, 2020
Unfortunately with a new moon season we are bound. to. see more of this. Hey nothing comes for free right?
We pumped hard this week. LINK went to the moon, $REN, $COMP, $BAL even good old ETH retested the highs.
But the king wasn’t ready, Bitcoin was unable to break out and now back down we go, I see the ranges getting tighter and that’s a good indication to be ready for a big move coming next.
The new rand I’m watching is $9300-$9700 break up we are free, break down and welcome back the bear.

Re-accumulation and Distribution ranges are the hardest to decipher between. Usually confirmation only comes at the end of the range.
Clear seller control above $9.8k. Clear rising demand below. pic.twitter.com/KKJZdbD6O8
This chart is one of the best. I have ever seen information-wise, the reality is everything we’ve done in the last month and more has just been bouncing in a range. Don’t get emotional, watch the levels, Do not long the tops, do not sell the bottom, mark the range on. your chart, do not get cucked.
I think I may have been wrong with the bearish prediction for 2020, it seems DeFi is fueling a moon run, I was hoping for 2021 to accumulate more but hey nothing is confirmed yet and it’s never late to stack.
Moonbags I’m watching: $LINK $REN $RSR and I hate to admit it but $ETH, the same way ETH fueled the ICO run, it fuels DeFi. Please don’t fomo watch the levels, also don’t get stuck bag holding, too early for this warning but remember to me these are all trades. I’ll multiply my $BTC holdings through this play, and that’s all it is, to me at least. Stay safe and get that paper kings.
