Capitalism at it’s finest unfolding, Bitcoin playing a game.
Here it is, the 15th 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 we had Ethereum beef, Cardano beef, twitter bans and most importantly, Zero Hedge is back.
Zero Hedge is out of Twitter Jail
After a long missed ban on Twitter for speaking up on the Corona Virus, Zero Hedge is back.
What did we miss— zerohedge (@zerohedge) June 13, 2020
They missed a lot but they were quick to catch up.
The Fed Has Monetized All Treasury Issuance In 2020 https://t.co/oaJnshqdnC— zerohedge (@zerohedge) June 14, 2020
Quickly the money printer go BRRR is translated to sophisticated reality, making you realize this is not a meme, this is a very serious problem. The article is quality and discusses the crises unfolding in front of us.
Three NYPD Officers “Intentionally Poisoned” With Bleach At Manhattan Shake Shack https://t.co/emr975Zkib— zerohedge (@zerohedge) June 16, 2020
With the recent death of George Floyd by the police mishandling a human life, BLM movement is back and stronger than ever, but within the drama Zero Hedge always finds the juiciest of them all. It also happens to be the Juciest burger of them all.
Know the whole Story
It’s important to always know the whole story before jumping to conclusions.
1. It’s fake— Romano (@RNR_0) June 17, 2020
2. He was a criminal with an actual criminal record. He was high on meth and committed a last non-violent crime before his life got taken away by a cop
Him being dead doesn’t suddenly make him a “great” man. He was a pathetic man trying to fake a receipt (stealing) pic.twitter.com/8ygTwgQZei
Now look, I understand you go too far by calling George a hero, however what people need to understand is the systematic racism embedded into our corrupt system. The reality is even if he is guilty, the police. have a duty to detain him and take him to court to be tried fairly not to use violence and. enforce the law as they see fit. The problem here is a constant issue with violence against African Americans by the police. Focus. on the. issue not the noise around it. It is a much bigger problem than 1 man.
Bitcoin Stolen from Hardware Wallet
Same goes here, do not judge until you have all the facts. A video which has now been taken down emerged last week, as a guy lost 12 BTC that he had spent years accumulating, it was an emotional plea and quickly the community began donating Bitcoin to the guy.
I hate this community. I hate these maximalists. I promise you karma does not exist, because if it did bitcoin would nuke to 1k and leave these dipshits destitute. pic.twitter.com/i2FKGPCECI— CryptoGainz (@CryptoGainz1) June 13, 2020
Others were mean but valid, saying I got hacked is an easy way to get donations, shortly after the wallet had accumulated 1 Bitcoin and the account went private. Fishy, no?
The “halvings cause BTC price rises” theory is unfalsifiable:
Was the peak before the halving? Then it “rose in anticipation of the halving”
During? “Because of the halving”
After? “Because of…”
The last $20k peak was near the halfway point between the 2016 and 2020 halvings.
Just talk properly I don’t wanna have to google shit to understand your tweet pic.twitter.com/VtVIes3Ygx— Bitlord (PRIME) (@Crypto_Bitlord) June 14, 2020
Bitlord having none of that. Just put him in his place, nobody will stop the bull run.
Cardano done pumping, let’s create drama.
Cardano has been on a roll lately with price mooning hard. I think it has taken a psychological toll on the founder Charles.
imagine not knowing what Carbanos is— dark pill (@DanDarkPill) June 14, 2020
complete lack of respect for the Ethereum founders pic.twitter.com/e63LGTcznM
Yes, he is running around like he owns the game, how dare you not know who he is? how dare you treat his highness as a commoner?
Drop the attitude sir, I mean not going to lie, I would flex just like that, but it just seems too unprofessional.
Doge Is Still The King, followed by Troll
I said it before and I’ll say it again, without Doge we are doomed.
But a new coin has piqued my interest. $TROLL. I love decentralized projects, especially ones with an actual use case and a community and Troll comes second after Dogecoin in my book.
TrollCoin is a tipping coin that allows you to tip people on twitter for comments you consider Trolkl worthy, while you many think it’s stupid it’s great way to encourage quality content through monetary rewards. The concept is superior and personally, a big fan, follow and tag me in a comment I’ll tip you some troll.
Bitcoin is Everywhere
I’m not sure why this isn’t big news, I mean back in the day we used to froth over buying a coffee with Bitcoin.
I would assume Bitcoin being on 2,000 vending machines should qualify. as good news, let’s celebrate.
Too Soon Bitmex…
I do not even know how to commentate on this, so ill just leave it here for you to ponder…
We are retesting the key level again and I’m personally short, to me, it looks like we go down to $8800 again before $10500. This week I want to share some of the most interesting Bitcoin charts on CT.
#Bitcoin— Mayne (@Tradermayne) June 16, 2020
Still very much in a range, if you are losing your shirt the last 1.5 months you need to stop playing the chop.
Grey OB looks like a high RR short, above there I reckon we take out $10.5k.
Lose the EQ of the range, I suspect $8700 and I’m dubious of that holding. pic.twitter.com/Nic5Ys7BcM
Mayne has an interesting outlook on this as usual and I tend to agree, if the moves lately have been scaring you chances are you are over-leveraged. Control your position sizing better and tweak down the leverage, you’ll be fine.
We used to call it a fake-out but A Bitmex Maintenance Trap seems more appropriate, remember these jumps happen to get people out of positions before a big move, so we know a big move is coming, the question is what direction. If unsure it’s generally better to be flat and wait for confirmation.
Hey guys, remember to tune into tonight to get the answers to the burning questions – is #bitcoin forming a batman / modified head and shoulders??— The Crypto Cook (@gcolthup) June 16, 2020
I am sure the TA wunderkind’s @CloudJooce & @bitman
will have informed insights for the @WhiskyWicks faithful.@Tony_Sycamore https://t.co/Te6J24rTLI pic.twitter.com/1XTTtU6UIW
The Batman may form and I honestly would not be surprised.
Finally the most honest chart I have ever seen.
