Podcasts This Week
PLY: Video reviews of a hot topic across the parish this week which we covered extensively in Exchange Invest Daily.
PLY: We covered La Morgan and her arrest for $4.5 billion in BTC money laundering as well as her epic Tiktok crypto rap (CryptoKaleo Yodle). This video deserves a view for an intriguing lesson occupying a circle of Venn diagrams somewhere between ambitious and outright brash all the way to outright bonkers.
The Globe and Mail
“If the users of cryptocurrencies want those currencies to be accepted as real money, they will have to accept government oversight and regulation. Doing so would rather ruin the founding philosophy of decentralized currencies, but their users can’t have it both ways. They can’t demand to operate without government interference and yet demand it when things don’t go their way.”
PLY: Spot on, the DeFi concept is ill-considered, naive, immature and downright brazen in the face of thousands of years of centralised legal process…and as soon as something goes wrong the vast number of activists for such process demand the government must do something!*
*Rather reminiscent to the many who troughed funds from the government to bail out their lifestyles as opposed to their businesses when Covid first hit.
As always, a review of interesting reading to provoke thoughts and consideration…
The Malaysian Reserve
Michael Spencer, winner of the 2001 Nobel Prize in Economics.
PLY: It seems ‘conscious uncoupling’ is complex compared to the PR metrics of just dating in the first place…
PLY: The inference that economists in crypto are ‘not real’ is somewhat beguiling of a weekend.
