What if Bitcoin actually benefitted from Terra’s disaster? (in the long run)

Terra’s crash has been dubbed “the Lehman Brothers of Crypto”, a fitting analogy considering that we’re talking about a project that went $45 billion from zero in a matter of hours.


Regulators, banks, governments and crypto-hating billionaires will love this. A lot of “I told you so” moments are coming.


On top of that, it is now going to be very hard for people to trust stablecoins again, especially ‘algorithmic’ ones. Which brings me on to the question in the headline, what if Bitcoin actually benefitted from this, in the long run?


Self-proclaimed Bitcoin maximalists have historically always shown little to no interest in other cryptos.


They, or perhaps I should ‘we’ firmly believe Bitcoin is King and Queen and always will be. And they’re used to flactuations and trouble. They’ve seen Bitcoin go to $20,000 before crashing to $3,000 and didn’t care. They’ve seen it go to nearly $70,000 before falling back to $27,000 and still didn’t get their knickers in a twist.


In the short term, this is a 360° catastrophe. There’s no doubt about that. Look around you and you’ll see nothing but ruins. But if you zoom out, Bitcoin is proving to me surprisingly predictable with its unpredictability. It always goes up, it always goes down.


And let’s not forget, Terra’s crash happened because it was a flawed project and a one-man-show. Bitcoin is not like that. The price goes up and down all the time for a million reasons but the network itself has never shown any significant weakness.


I still own around 105 UST, worth around $5 at the time of writing. It sucks, but I know a lot of people lost a lot of money so I’m not gonna complain.


I also know that around 93% of my portfolio is Bitcoin. And I’m beginning to think that it’d make even more sense if I ramped that up to 95% or 96%.

How do you keep yourself informed about crypto?

When newcomers ask about crypto and NFTs, they’re often told that these things are “based on blockchain technology”. Legacy media outlets always use this expression all the time and I believe it may be because they’ve no idea what they’re talking about.


And anyway this is, in my opinion, a dumb explanation because the next question would inevitabily be: “cool! So what the hell is blockchain technology?”


Understanding crypto takes time, a commodity that most people are running out of, and it is very difficult to create a one-size-fits-all package to explain everything to everyone in one go.


During my time at the Tomorrow Conference in Belgrade last weekend, I happened upon a Slovenian startup that’s trying to do exactly that. It’s called Cryptounity.


The whole idea, the whole project, is based on the statistical knowledge that only 2% of the world use crypto, which leaves us with 98% with no idea what it is or how to use it.


They want to create a hub where you can find enough info to get a basic understanding of everything crypto from how an exchange work to NFT marketplaces.


It’s an ambitious goal but they’ve structured it right and designed it to make sure you start simple and learn the basics right away, especially when it comes to crucial things like cybersecurity.


As you’d expect, the platform also has its native token called CUT (on BSC), with a total supply of 1,000,000,000.


I haven’t bought any yet but I’m considering it. Partly because I believe in the project, but chiefly because there’s nothing else to do right now, I can’t certainly sell crypto now, can I?

First European panel in the Metaverse to take place in Belgrade, Serbia (and I’ll be there)

Belgrade is the former capital of Jugoslavia, the capital and largest city in Serbia, a global and vibrant hub. And it is also my home. I relocated here about a year ago and when I heard there would be a 3-day crypto-focused event at Belgrade Fair, on the right bank of the Sava River, I immediately knew I had to go. So I will.


This is the largest Crypto, NFT and Metaverse conference in Europe and while I’m looking forward to the 7 panels, 100 speakers and 50 keynotes, what really, really interests me is the people. I wanna know what people think. What they bought, or sold, or hodled, and why, and how, and when. And their take on the Metaverse and NFTs being used as an art form but also as a means of authenticating property and assets.


ECD’s founder Aleksandar Matanovic will be there, along with Craig Sellers, founder of Tether, Tanja Bivic Plankar, President of the Blockchain Alliance of Europe and Bruno Ver, blockchain specialist and founder of the top NFT business NIFTIFY.


I will be sharing updates in the coming days here, as well as on Bitcoinea.

The geopolitical implications of Bitcoin for the United States

Geopolitics has many definitions. Some say it’s the study of conflicts and interactions between nations in different geographies. Wikipedia says “it’s the the study of the effects of Earth’s geography – both human and physical – on politics and international relations”. More to the point, geopolitics is the stark realisation of ‘what is’ and, crucially, ‘what can’t be done’.


I was born and raised in a country with little to no sovereign power, because my country is a subsidiary of a larger political entity, which in turn is comprised by countries that are all – in one way or another – satellites, clients and subsidiaries of the U.S..


The government of my country can come up with a list of demands of what they want and need but geopolitical dynamics will dictate – not suggest – what we can actually can or can’t get. Ever wondered why some things never happen even though the majority of people constantly vote to see them happen? It’s not always about money. More often than not it’s because of geopolitics.

The same exact dynamics apply to the U.S. Dollar.


The U.S. Dollar isn’t the world’s reserve currency because it’s backed by gold (which it isn’t, even though some still think it is), or because the U.S. is the only government thats prints all denominations in the same size. It is the world’s reserve currency because America is the world’s leading empire, the world’s hegemon. It’s not the other way around.


A famous geopolitical analyst once said that “empires can’t retire”, they simply carry on being an empire – sometimes against their own will – till they fall apart, and as such, the U.S. needs to think about Bitcoin more than any other nation on Earth.


On the one hand, Bitcoin is a the most self-reliant form of money we’ve ever seen. With Bitcoin, we can get as close as possible to being immune to opinion and censorship. The U.S. knows this and they know that they need to use this to their advantage, because allowing other superpowers to dominate the crypto space would be inadmissable.


Fortunately for the U.S. – and dare I say for us – other superpowers like China and Russia have shot themselves in the foot when it comes to Bitcoin – albeit for entirely different reasons.


Bitcoin is like gravity. It is inevitable. It can be slowed down but it can’t really be stopped unless you’re ready to do something disruptive and destructive, like shutting down the internet for an entire continent for example. And permanently, not just for one day.


Bitcoin is objective. There’s very little about it that’s subjective. And that’s unheard of when it comes to money. After all, the term FIAT applied to money derives from Latin and it means “by decree”, because somebody said so.


You know what else is objective? I need coffee. I’m gonna go get some. Have a nice day.

Alfa Romeo F1 team just signed a massive deal with Vauld, a Singapore-based crypto firm

F1 cars are becoming posters and banners for crypto companies, which is hardly surprising because many crypto exchanges and platforms out there have got plenty of cash and are 100% invested in growing their customer base. Alfa Romeo – officially known as ‘Alfa Romeo F1 Team Orlen’ is the latest team to join the crypto frenzy after Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull, signing a deal with a crypto exchange called VAULD.


Based out of Singapore (just like Bybit, which recently finalised a $150 mln deal with Red Bull F1, ed.), Vauld was founded in 2018 and it allows you to store, buy, lend, borrow and trade cryptos.


Their rates are competitive but not spectacular, the APY on Bitcoin, for example, is 6.70%, while stablecoins such as DAI, USDT, TUSD and USDP guarantee an APY of 12.68%. The platform also allows trading and borrowing (up to an LTV of 66.67%).


Alfa Romeo F1 Team Principal Frédéric Vasseur said that “the world of cryptocurrencies and the blockchain technologies are huge markets with a technical complexity that makes them particularly interesting”, and his words were echoed by Darshan Bathija, CEO and Co-founder of Vauld, who added: “Our mission is to accelerate the transition to decentralised money and we’re glad to join forces because it’s a massive step in that direction.”


I agree. And might I add, we faster we get there, the better.

Another important stress test for bitcoin (stop panic-selling!)

Bitcoin is a 13-year-old young’un who’s already seen a lot. It was born in the woke of one of the worst financial crisis in modern history, and it has already survived a global pandemic and the 2017-2018 craze-turned-chaos, the first (of many) crypto frenzies that nearly broke the system and killed the market. But it didn’t. And now there’s a war.


Naysayers and ‘status-quoers‘ (is that even a word? Whatever I just made it up) will continue to cherry-pick data and timeframes to support their narrative that bitcoin is useless. But it doesn’t matter. They can stay away from it if they don’t like it, I’ll buy it.


Bitcoin has been called a currency, an asset, a fad, a scam, a hedge against inflation. It has been called many things but the only thing that’s proven to be true beyond recourse and objection, so far, is that bitcoin is essentially a technology that’s completely immune to opinion. It doesn’t do what you want it to do, and more to the point, it is immune to FIAT. In other words, it is immune to “because-I-said-so’ dynamics that rule the world.


The ongoing tensions aren’t helping, and the fact that social media and legacy media outlets make a mountain out of a mole hill isn’t either (generally speaking). I realise and understand that many will panic-sell and liquidate their positions to “get out while we still can”. But they’re wrong.


This is another important stress test for bitcoin, but it isn’t first, and it won’t be the last, and it isn’t the worst.


Please note: I don’t wish to downplay nor magnify the situation but I only talk about crypto, not geopolitics. If you’re reading this, I hope you are safe and happy.

8 bullet points to keep in mind in any conversation involving crypto vs FIAT

These days I find myself preaching the merits of crypto way too often but while the conversation is always intriguing, I sometimes struggle to find the right words to express concepts. Partly, because these things are complicated and I’m learning every day, but also because, as they say, you should never use seven words when four will do and that’s a superpower I still don’t have. Working on it.


But anyway, what I thought I’d do is put together 8 key bullet points to remember (and bear in mind) whenever I’m having a conversation with somebody who puts way too much trust in FIAT money and can’t see how important crypto will be. In random order.


1. FIAT, as in FIAT money, derives from Latin and it means ‘let it be done’. It basically means ‘because I [the issuing bank/government] said so’.


2. The U.S. Dollar is not backed by anything because the Bretton Woods system is de-facto dead.


3. The Bretton Woods system was implemented after WWII and in short, this is what it entailed: the U.S. Dollar is backed by gold, all other currencies are backed by the U.S. Dollar


4. In 1971, President Richard Nixon unilaterally cancelled the direct convertibility of the United States dollar to gold. Until then, U.S. Dollars could be redeemed for gold BUT since then, it can’t, which means there’s no underlying asset to guarantee the value of the U.S. Dollar


5. The Federal Reserve is NOT ‘federal’ and it has no ‘reserve’. It is a private company created by five bankers, a Senator of the U.S. and the Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Teasury Department. They came up with the idea on Jekyll Island (Georgia) in 1910 and officially founded it in 1913.


6. Nearly 50% of all U.S. Dollars in circulation has been printed since the start of the Pandemic.


7. Bitcoin is not anonymous, it is pseudonymous, which means that tracing the identity of the owner of an address to the activity of said address is yes, extremely difficult, but technically not impossible.


8. Bitcoin and Ethereum alone represent around 57% of the market (40% and 17% respectively).


Is there anything you wanna add to the list? Let me know in the comments.

This is going to be interesting: Netflix will cover the Bitfinex hack with an upcoming film

The Cointelegraph, one of the most influential crypto news outlets out there, reports that Netflix has officially announced the production of a docu-film covering the Bitfinex hack and the New York-based couple that reportedly perpetrated the hack and/or helped launder the 119,000-something BTC that was stolen.


The [in]famous hack happened in 2016, when a grand total of 119,756 Bitcoin disappeared from the platform, in what remains one of the largest crypto hacks to date. It was worth around $72 mln back then but worth well over 5 billion dollars at today’s rate.


Netflix has remained rather cryptic about it, probably because they’re still in early phase of development, but we do know that the docufilm will be directed by Chris Smith (The Yes Man, Fyre, 100 Foot Wave), and co-produced by Nick Bilton. In 2017, Bilton published a book titled ‘American Kingpin’, telling the story of the Silk Road marketplace.


The news that the funds stolen during the hack have been retrieved and will possibly lead to a lengthy sentence for the two people that were either behind the hack or at the very least instrumental in laundering the funds stolen has since been used by many to reinstate the fact that Bitcoin is not, as many believe, anonymous, but rather pseudonymous, which means it actually doesn’t lend itself well to crime.

If you’re here, you’re on the right side of history

Three things this morning: Russia officially confirmed it wants to adopt crypto as legal tender, BTC reclaims $45,000 and Fitch, the American credit rating agency, has decided to lower El Salvador’s score due to bitcoin adoption.


Please take a moment to consider and remember this: back in 2007 and 2008, right before the financial crisis, credit rating agencies kept concealing the risks of CDOs by assigning high-value rankings to mortgage-backed securities, even though the underlying mortgages were collapsing. I’m gonna give them the benefit of the doubt here but even the most bank-loving, rose-tinted glass wearing person in the world will have to admit that they were either seriously wrong or they were lying. So do you trust them with bitcoin now?


I don’t want to sound like a crazy conspiracy theorist so I’ll just stick to what I know and that’s crypto. Little by little, day by day, the lies – or let’s call them ‘mistruths’ – and myths about bitcoin have been debunked. Everyone knows bitcoin is immune to inflation but it is also immune to censorship and, more importantly, it is immune to opinion. And that, in this modern day and age where people think their feelings and opinions are truths and facts, is hugely important.


Speaking of inflation, some have even tried to argue that bitcoin is actually not that great as a hedge against of inflation, but their argument is weak. First of all, bitcoin shouldn’t be described as a ‘hedge against’ inflation, it should be described as ‘immune to inflation in the long run’, because that’s what it is. Because it means that bitcoin’s value can be impacted by global events, yes, but it can’t – and it won’t – be altered by the arbitrary inflation of its supply. Which is exactly what we’ve seen with the U.S. Dollar.


Banks and governments don’t like bitcoin because they’re quickly realising they can’t really control it. At least not the same with efficacy and power they control FIAT money. So they try to fight it or, that’s the case with El Salvador and Russia, they join in.

You can’t stake Bitcoin, but you can still earn decent APY with these two apps

I know a guy who says he doesn’t want bitcoin because “I can’t stake them” – that’s what he said – and so he’d rather own proof-of-stake coins and tokens he can stake. Fair enough. However, I firmly believe that nothing beats Bitcoin, and probably nothing ever will, he says other cryptocurrencies are better. And so I told him to sell his BTC “so I can buy it”.


But that got me thinking, surely there must be platforms where you can earn interests on your BTC with stake-like APYs. I can think of at least two: Wirex and Nexo.


I’m gonna start with Wirex because that’s the app I’m a bit more familiar with. It was launched by two Russian IT specialists in 2014 and for a few years, it was basically the only exchange that offered crypto debit cards before it was popular. It must be said that they’ve had more than their fair share of trouble with the cards a few years ago even though it wasn’t entirely their fault. I still remember the moment: I was having a pint in my favourite pub and got a text saying that my VISA card would be terminated ‘effective immediately’ # panik. The next day, after a little bit of digging, I found out that VISA had decided to abruptly cut every tie with the bank that Wirex and other providers (including platforms outside of the crypto space) were using to issue the cards. I’m not gonna tell you the name of the bank that pissed VISA off for two reasons. One, I don’t actually remember, and two, it doesn’t really matter.


Anyway Wirex is still alive and kicking, still offering debit cards (but it’s on the Mastercard circuit now), and offering up to 10-14% APY on Bitcoin if you opt to have your interest paid out in their own token called WXT, operating on the Stellar blockchain and the Ethereum blockchain.


The other app is Nexo. I’m not as familiar with Nexo as I’ve only been using it for a few weeks but they offer up to 12% interest on Bitcoin if you hold at least 10% of your portoflio in their own token, called NEXO (duh), and opt to have your interest paid out in NEXO. Sorry I said Nexo like a thousand times.


I’ll leave both links here, you can use them to get a $25 bonus sign-up bonus on Nexo (paid in BTC, top up your account $100 or more and hold for at least 30 days, any currency including stablecoins), and a $15 sign-up bonus on Wirex (paid in WXT, top up your account $100 or more in crypto). Hopefully that helps. Cheers.
