Heads up: Centurion Invest’s token’s public sale is live

Centurion Invest is a crypto exchange that combines a traditional wallet with the features of an exchange, including ETFs, stock trading and of course crypto trading.


After signing in (there’s a 1,000 CIX bonus), you can bake your own cake or you can subscribe to one of the pre-cooked programmes, depending on how much funds you can, or want to, allocate: baby shark, shark and whale.


They also have a Visa card that gives you the various perks you expect in the crypto world, including loyalty programmes and cashback. I have been using the platform for a few days now, after discovering it at the Tomorrow Conference in Belgrade a little over a week ago, but I’ve yet to order the card.


I’ve had the opportunity to talk to the founder at the conference and the project is intriguing. Plus, I’ve got around 50+ crypto-related apps on my phone. So one more can’t hurt.


CIX is the platform’s native token (ERC-20) and it is currently worth around $0.02 with a total supply of 2,400,000,000. The public sale goes live tomorrow, May 25th.

Everyone is calling for crypto regulation in the European Union, but who’s the regulator?

The European Union is not a country. It isn’t a state, it isn’t a geopolitical entity. It is a forum, a virtual table around which 27 sovereign countries sit and discuss. These countries have vastly different interests and priorities and this is by far and away the biggest reason why the EU is in a bad shape.


These 27 countries, with different degrees of strength, are satellites of the United States.


In short, European Union countries just do what the United States allows them to do. Nothing more, nothing less. This becomes glaringly obvious when representatives of the Union are regularly snubbed during international meetings.


The media love to say it has to do with manners but that’s just red herring. The EU isn’t a company and the chairman isn’t a CEO. This is the reason why high-ranking EU officials consistently bash crypto without actually doing anything about it.


That’s because, for the most part, they can’t.


The EU is desperate to save the EURO, which is beginning to look like a failed project, but everytime they propose a new law and pass a new bill, the crypto market goes: “oh no! anyway”, and just carries on.


Within the boundaries of the European Union, you have countries that are at the forefront when it comes to crypto like Slovenia and Portugal, and you also have countries that simply ignore it, like Italy, mostly because they’ve no idea what it is or how it works.


Crypto won’t exactly self-regulate, but because of the way it works, it will keep on playing by its own rules, gradually (and slowly) bending regulators around it.


I am, whether I like it or not, a citizen of the European Union, even though I no longer live in an EU country. There are things about this entity that I quite like – freedom of movement (and trade) is certainly one of those – and others I don’t really like.


But that’s the beauty of crypto. At the end of the day, my opinion doesn’t matter. It doesn’t make a difference. And that’s true for me, you, and at a fundamental level, even for the president of European Commission.

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?

GoodDollar: can crypto be used for Universal Basic Income?

I’ve watched a fantastic YouTube video, or perhaps I should say a montage, highlighting four different views on UBI, Universal Basic Income.


Two of the pundits were for it and two were a bit more dubious but all four presented valid arguments and none, this is the best part, relied on political or ideological standpoints. They were simply weighing in the pros and cons.


In short, for those who aren’t familiar, UBI stands for Universal Basic Income, the idea that each individual should receive a basic income regardless of employment status.


I still don’t know where I stand on that because everything I hear sounds reasonable, and these conversations are always a lot more complicated than they seem. For example, some claim that UBI will be inevitable because technology will ‘automate’ a lot of people out of existence. Robots are already capable of doing a lot of the things we do but better, and they’re expendable.


They’re never tired, they don’t complain, don’t ask for a raise.


It is also true that it is statistically very likely that a small percentage of people would self-destruct if given the chance to do so with a ‘free meal’, which brings us on what is, in my view, the biggest flaw with UBI and it is that – so far, at least – it hasn’t really worked very well in all those geographies where it’s been implemented.


UBI was introduced in the country I was born about three years and so far it’s been a complete disaster. But that’s a different conversation for a different day.


The biggest issue is it incentivise people to stay home and not work because why would you bust your a*s for a meagre pay day when you get nearly the same amount doing nothing.


But that’s FIAT UBI, what about crypto UBI?


I came across a project called GoodDollar because a friend and (technically) former colleague is working at the company and I’ve been using for a few months. I still don’t know where it can go, but I think the use case is worth talking about.


Very easy. You just log in every day and click ‘claim’, and you link your MetaMask to redeem the token.


Crypto is a game that plays by its own rules and the dynamics of this world make it a bit easier to distribute UBI, with all the benefits that come with it, while drastically reducing the drawbacks.


Will it work?

Tomorrow Conference Belgrade, the largest Metaverse meetup in Europe, Day 1

The Belexpocentar is located in an area of Belgrade that looks like it was developed yesterday. That’s because it more or less was. You’ll find it on the south-west side of a long and wide avenue that runs from the West Gate Tower to the river.


Around it, and on either side of it, there’s a collection of modern, aluminium- and glass-made buildings and facilities. On the opposite end of the very same avenue, a collection of brutalist residential buildings made from concrete. It’s an interesting juxtaposition, and it defines the architecture of Belgrade.



Day one is usually spent looking for an answer to the question: “who’s here?”


Tether founder Craig Sellars is here, along with Tanja Bivic Plankar, President of Blockchain Alliance Europe, along with Dusan Kovacevic, founder and CEO of Exit Festival.


Dogma, one of Belgrade’s major brewing companies, is also here. And I know this because I’m having a craft lager they specifically created for the event called ‘TMRW’.


And when I say “I’m having A craft lager”, I mean I’m having “multiple” craft lagers.


The crypto space is a multi-trillion-dollar market that started from a spark called Bitcoin in 2009 but the truth is the crypto market as we know, with a million different projects and ideas and people talking about them, is the direct result of the crypto crash of early 2018.


When Bitcoin briefly reached $20,000 before crashing over 80%, people began paying attention, even though it was for the wrong reasons and it created the foundation for a market that’s a lot more solid, and is getting bigger and more relevant.


I’m here because I live here, but other people – most of them, actually – came here precisely for this conference. Most of them had never seen Serbia before and this tells you everything you need to know about crypto.


Crypto will shape its own regulations and determine its own geography based on governments’ reaction. Slovenia, Portugal and Serbia, for example, are more relevant in the crypto world than Italy, France or even Germany because they moved faster, reacted more quickly.


The Tomorrow Conference will take place again, in Belgrade, one year from now. And that leaves me with two questions: will Terra (LUNA) still exist? And will the TMRW lager still be available?

Sweatcoin: it was worth the wait 🚶

Sweatcoin is a an app that pays you to walk and like most such apps is (with one exception, Young Step) – or rather it used to be – a bit useless. No offence. The key part of what I said is the use of the verb ‘to be’. As in, it used to be but it no longer is.


It’s quite simple: you can earn Sweatcoins by walking and by watching up to three sponsored videos every day, but the problem is Sweatcoin is not a crypto, it’s just a token that you can only use internally to redeem for goods and services that you mostly don’t really need.


I’m talking about 50% off terrible watches, or 100% off items that aren’t worth the shipping costs (that you still need to pay), or digital services such discount vouchers for 1, 2, 3, XYZ free months with this or that app. None of that was particularly useful, or captivating.


But that was then and this is now, because Sweatcoin has officially partnered up with NEAR protocol to provide an actual, legit crypto wallet, in which you will be able to store SWEAT, an actual cryptocurrency (probably a token, but they haven’t confirmed that yet).


This is big news. And good news. If you’re already using the app all you have to do is wait, your Sweatcoins will be automatically converted to SWEAT with a 1:1 ratio and you’ll be able to download the wallet, which is going to be available in the Summer.


If you’re not using Sweatcoin, now’s a good time to start and dip your toes in it before the launch.

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.

Polkadot’s Gavin Wood donates $5.8 mln to Ukraine

Crypto has become an actor and participant in the ongoing Ukraine-Russia conflict because, as most people reading these words know, it has no borders and it is capable of bypassing hurdles that would otherwise cripple traditional financial instruments. Crypto is amoral and apolitical, in that it doesn’t have a higher purpose or a morality of its own, but people do and that’s why the Ukrainian government has been on the receiving end of donations in excess of $30 million and counting – in crypto, that is.


I’ve been reading a lot of news articles and geopolitical analysis on the conflict, been watching the news of course, been watching old and new videos of ‘experts’ – some of them may as well be, and some of them aren’t – about the tensions. But at the end of the day, I think we can all agree that no one, ever, for any reason, should go through what the Ukrainian people are going through at the moment. But I talk about crypto, not geopolitics, and that’s what I’m going to focus on.


Like many of you, I’ve been receiving emails from various exchanges and platforms to keep me notified with updates regarding their compliance with the new regulations, in short: there will be service disruption in Belarus and Russia, and I’ve also been keeping an eye on the Bitcoin, Eth and, more recently, Polkadot. This is one of the many features that define – by design – crypto, and some non-crypto people will probably witness this for the first time. In short: transaction data is stored in the blockchain in perpetuity, and the information you do or do not have access to is part of the design.


Gavin Wood, Polkadot’s founder, has pledged (and proceeded to do so) to donate $5 mln and a quick glance at the transaction history of the bitcoin address that Ukraine shared you’ll note it has so far received a little over 200 BTC.




People always take sides and, as ever, they will use crypto to spin their narrative, hopefully, for once, it might be for the better.

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.

Here’s why I couldn’t care less what billionaire investors say about crypto, and neither should you

Here’s something to remember: whenever anybody is trying to make a point by using this or that billionaire investor’s quote as further evidence and proof what they’re saying is true, that’s basically what communication experts call an ‘appeal to authority’, also called ‘argument from authority’. And that, as far as argument-winning techniques go, is a losing strategy.


With the ‘argument from authority’ strategy you’re esentially using the influential power of a public figure as self-evident proof to back up your argument, but the opinion of an authority is only relevant if everyone in the conversation believes in the authority. That’s like saying it’s true because “it says so in the Bible”, that’s all you need to know if you’re Christian but it’s obviously irrelevant if you’re agnostic or follow a different religion.


In the crypto space – and this happens every day – influential CEOs and billionaire investors share their opinions. And these opinions are used as facts by both crypto evangelists and crypto non-believers to make their point, but they’re both wrong.



First of all, we should bear in mind that most billionaires became successful for one of two reasons: they were either right more times than they were wrong, or they were right once but that one time was enough to make them billionaires. Warren Buffet, for example, most likely falls under the first category. Jeff Bezos probably falls in the second category. But that doesn’t mean that either of them is 100% right, 100% of the time.


There’s an old saying in football (soccer, if you’re reading in the U.S.), “you should count goals but you should also ‘weigh’ them”. And it applies to opinions as well. The value and weight of people’s opinion depends on what they do, and who they are. When it comes to crypto, if Vitalik Buterin is talking, everyone else listens, including Warren Buffet. When it comes to stocks, it’s the other way around. When it comes to, say, smartphone technology, both should probably take a seat and listen to Tim Cook. See where I’m getting at?


And their opinions are often generic and fail to provide any actual value. A famous hedge manager, for example, recently said that the “crypto craze is overblown”. What does that even mean? That’s like somebody in the mid 1990s saying the “internet is overblown”.


Lastly, and this is also important, I don’t care what they say because they change their mind all the time. Institutional investors have a vested interest in preserving the status quo, and crypto destroys the status quo. Sooner or later they’re all going to join the bandwagon, because they will have to, because crypto can’t be killed. And it can’t be killed because it isn’t a financial instrument or an asset, it’s a new type of technology.


In the meantime, I honestly couldn’t care less what billionaire investors say. In the short term, I’m happy when they praise it, frustrated when they slam it, but in the long run, it doesn’t make a difference, and that’s why I don’t care.
