Employees of one of most recognisable brands in the world can now get paid in bitcoin

Close your eyes and answer this question: what is the most recognisable brand in the world? Actually, I’ll rephrase: which company/entity/organisation has the most reconisable brand?


Not including brands whose logo include the actual name of the company, i.e. Coca Cola.


Apple’s half-eaten Apple certainly springs to mind. Then I’d say Nike’s Swoosh, Ferrari’s Prancing Horse and probably Rolex’s crown.


But when it comes to sports teams, I can’t think of anyone that did this better than the New York Yankees.


I apologise for the [probably] pointless and [definitely] wordy premise but the big news for us crypto-heads, crypto-nerds, crypto-geeks, crypto-nuts is that the New York Yankees has just launched something called the Bitcoin Payroll Platform, allowing employees to get paid in Bitcoin. More specifically, employees can opt to convert a percentage of their paycheck to Bitcoin.



According to NYDIG, a New York City-based crypto company, nearly 1 in 4 people in the U.S would be interested in getting paid in crypto, at least partially. That number goes up to 36% for people in the workforce under 30 years of age.


Which brings me on to a question I’d like to ask: would you feel comfortable receiving 100% of your salary in crypto?

It started: UK court delivers legal document via NFT AIRDROP

In a private hearing on June 24, London’s High Court Judge WIlliam Trower gave a law firm permission to deliver legal documents via an NFT airdrop.


This is hugely important for at least two reasons.


One, it sets a precedent, giving NFTs full legal force to the letter of the law. And two, it gives NFT skeptics proof that yes, the technology behind non-fungible tokens provides numerous use cases beyond the ‘expensive JPEG’ cliche.


The documents are in relation to a lawsuit that has to do with crypto, by the way.


The founder of an Italian joint-stock company called Microgame is suing Binance, Polo Digital Assets, Aux Cayes Fintech and Bitkup, he claims he was tricked into depositing crypto into unknown wallets.


This, as far as I’m concerned, is just trivia. The details and the result of the lawsuit are of secondary importance.


What matters is the precedent.


What’s your take?

Good news! You can now fall and land on your butt in the Metaverse with Tony Hawk’s virtual skatepark

Remember Tony Hawk, the guy that glamourised skateboarding and made it popular with 90s kids? Well, he’s now in the Metaverse. Because these days everything is.


The Sandbox, one of the most prominent Metaverse projects out there, has teamed up with Tony Hawk himself and an NFT company called Autograph to build the largest skatepark in the world. The virtual world, that is.


Autograph will create NFTs that can be unlocked as in-game features and/or you can just collect them.


This is the latest introduction in the Metaverse but it seems there’s something new to talk about on a daily basis. A healthcare company based out of the United Arab Emirates, for example, has just announced its intention to build a hospital in the Metaverse.


That, presumably, is where you can go to fix your broken [virtual] bones after attempting a double backflip at Tony Hawk’s skatepark. How convenient.

Remember the movie ‘Get Out’? It’ll be available in the Metaverse soon

Remember the award-winning, critically acclaimed movie Get Out?


It was an independent project by Jordan Peele, a young and (then) up-and-coming movie director. It was a huuuuuge hit. Everyone loved it, critics and fans alike.



Well, now there’s a Metaverse version. It seems. Monkeypaw, Jordan Peele’s production company, has officially teamed up with Meta to turn the film into a metaverse experience through Virtual Reality.


When is it coming out? We don’t know yet.


Are we looking forward to it? Meh. Big fan of Get Out and Jordan Peele, not a fan of Meta.

Uh-oh: you can acquire NFTs with the ‘buy now, pay later’ formula

There’s a company called Teller Finance that’s now allowing you to acquire NFTs with the ‘buy now, pay later’ formula. A lot of people may get in financial trouble with that. Including myself, crucially. Dammit.


I called it a ‘company’ but that’s technically incorrect because Teller is a DeFi lending protocol built on the Polygon blockchain. In crypto terms, it uses non-custodial liquidity pools that users can borrow from (or add funds to) with their bank accounts.


In non-crypto terms. You can basically ‘fuse’ your bank account with the DeFi platform. # trouble


The service, aptly called ‘Ape Now, Pay Later, allows you to buy select NFTs from the Bored Ape Yacht Club, the Mutant Ape Yacht Club, Moonbirds, Doodles, Azuki, Cool Cats, Meebits, Adidas Originals, Murakami Flowers Seed and RTFKT-MNLTH.


A down payment is required, and it varies depending on the project. The ‘cheapest’ one is Adidas Originals, with a 25% down payment.

El Salvador is officially the most visited country in Central/South America in 2022

El Salvador famously became the first sovereign nation state to officially adopt Bitcoin as legal tender back in 2021 and so far, the experiment hasn’t gone terrible well from a financial point of view, chiefly because the timing was quite bad.


The President of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele, essentially began buying Bitcoin at the peak and he hasn’t stopped since but, as we all know, crypto has been on a downtrend for months now and so the country’s overall investment is worth roughly one third of what it was.


This wild experiment made Bukele somewhat of a superhero in the eyes of the crypto community but legacy institutions, including the International Monetary Fund, obviously dislike and disapprove of what he’s doing.


Having said that, Bukele is a politician, and like every and any other politician in the world, his main concern is his domestic approval rate. And I’m not talking about polls, because those can be fake (and fakeD), I’m talking about the real-world consensus. In other words, do people throw tomatoes at him in the streets?


But that’s a problem for later. And more to the point that’s a problem for him, not the rest of the world.


In the meantime, however, his experiment certainly put El Salvador back on the map and the tiny nation can celebrate a small achievement because it is the most visited country in South America and Central America.


I guess it’s safe to say that we’re all rooting for El Salvador and I believe that if he keeps at it, 10 or 20 years from now, a lot of other countries will look at El Salvador and say, “why didn’t we think of that?”

RANT: the Euro is f***d. And it has been from the start

I wish to state from the outset that I was born and raised in a country that’s been part of the European Union from the start. It wasn’t even called that back then. When I was around 14 years old, we gave up our old currency and switched to the EURO and that’s where the trouble started.


I don’t particularly like the European Union, in fact I am now living outside of it and have been for about a year, but what I really, really dislike is the EURO.


There are many issues with the common currency, chief among which is the fact that the European Union Commission and the ECB are in love with this narrative where they act like they’re in charge of a nation, when they’re not.


This is the biggest flaw – or certainly one of the biggest – of every entity that runs the EU because the European Union is not a country and it will never be one. It is a forum where 27 countries with drastically different interests co-exist.


19 of the 27 countries that compose the EU use the EURO, plus Montenegro and Kosovo that have both unilaterally adopted it and use it as a de-facto currency at a state level.


Leaving these two aside, because they’re not part of the EU so what they do doesn’t matter from a policy-making perspective, those 19 countries have completely different economies.


The Federal Reserve has many, many, many flaws. But at least when it creates new policies and makes decisions, it does that for one country and one country only and that’s the United States. And yes, of course, I’m aware that the 50 countries in the U.S. are also different but it is not the same thing.


Why? Simple. The U.S. is a nation. The European Union is not.


People from California and Texas may dislike each other, and they do, but they share the same nationality, the same passport, the same federal government and institutions, the same anthem, the same national teams and speak vaguely the same language.


People from Italy, Greece, Germany and Ireland (four random examples) have nothing in common apart from the EURO.


The EURO is a failed project. It has been kept on life support pretty much since its inception and it is now falling, almost at parity with the U.S. Dollar, because the ECB and European Commission don’t have the power and the vision to make decisions about it. Not even the wrong ones.


Croatia will join the EUROzone on January 1, 2023 and I predict that the same thing that happened to my country will happen to them. You go to sleep and then you wake up and boom, just like that, your purchasing power has gone down. Your salary is the same, but the price of your groceries has doubled.


They can keep their EUROs, I’ll gladly keep my crypto and my RSD.


Rant over. Sorry. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.

Revealing my entire crypto portoflio in terms of % (July 2022 UPDATE)

Crypto influencers are usually eeringly transparent about how much they have and where. Good on them.


I personally don’t feel too comfortable sharing how much I have, and especially where, but I do think it would be interesting and useful to share the actual percentage(s) I’ve allocated for each crypto. A, because I wanna know what you think and B, ’cause I’m always curious to find out what people are investing in and why.


I have crypto holdings worthy of any mention (=crypto dust not included) spread across 7 platforms/wallets/exchanges. I got rid of one since the last update in Jan 2022 (for the year 2021).


Most of my portfolio is bitcoin. It used to be around 93.70% but now I’ve brought it up to 94.5%. ETH is still my second largest holding at around 2.5%, so the percentage of altcoins I hold is now at 3%, -0.54% down from seven months ago.


I may change my mind but for now, my plan is to keep liquidating all my altcoins except maybe four or five.


So what about the remaining 3$? Last time it was mostly in Ripple, Litecoin, Algorand and KAVA but I sold all my KAVA and only kept the first three. And they’ve all gone down in value so my Litecoin is now only 5% (used to be 10%) and Algorand and Ripple are 1 and 3% respectively.


I still hold yearn.Finance (0.97%) – mostly because liquidating my position would mean losing around 80% of my investment and I’m not planning to do that. I still have Polygon (0.67%), Solana (0.38%) and Dogecoin (1.20%), but other than that two things changed: DAI and NEXO.


When considering the remaining 3% of my portfolio that’s not ETH or BTC, DAI used to be 2%, it’s now 15%. As for NEXO, it went from 0% to 4% (of the remaining 3%) simply because I have to hold it to get the most benefits from the Nexo app. I also have a lot more CRO (now 2%) than I used to because I used the crypto.com card a lot.


I also have a position (0.90% for all of these) in MANA, Chiliz (CHZ), Cardano, Shiba INU, Santos, Polkadot, Axie, HBAR, BNB, Celo, 1inch, AVAX, AAVE, BAT, Chainlink, Uniswap and ICP.


Then I also have negligible amounts (around 1% of the remaining 3.54%) of Hive, Tron (TRX), Troy, PancakeSwap, BUSD, MC, HIGH, Santos, FARM (thanks to Publish0x!), Ampleforth, Ravencoin, Moss Carbon Credit, BICO, Badger Dao, IoTeX, Quant, Liquity, Enzyme, Enjin, Rarible, Cartesi, Mirror Protocol, Clover Finance, Gala, ARPA, Tellor, Numeraire, ENS, Voyager (worth basically zero at the moment) and Statera.

Let’s take a deep breath

Coinmarketcap reports that Bitcoin is on track for the biggest weekly gain of 2022 so far.


Which is a bit like saying that breaking your left arm is the best possible skateboard-related injury.


Okay. Bad analogy. But you get my point.


2022 has been eventful so far. The problem is none of the events that made it eventful were positive.


A lethal combination of bad market actors (Yo, Kwon), heavily centralised exchanges going bust (malice or incompetence, the end result won’t change) and the inevitable impact of human psychology dragged us down to this level.


Think about it. Bitcoin at 20k in 2017 had people go “wow! To the moon!”, whereas Bitcoin at 20k in 2022 make us panic and wince.


People constantly repeat the ‘not your keys, not your crypto’ mantra and I get that. I agree. But the truth is always in the middle.


I think the best way to go about it is split your crypto and hold it in 2-3 different exchanges, only the major ones, the ones that, on paper at least, are solid. And 2-3 wallets.


I stake whatever I can stake but I only pick coins and tokens based on analysis. Not sentiment.


And I keep most of what I have in BTC anyway.


And, crucially, I try my best not to be greedy.


I reinvest some of it, and spend some of it. Mostly on coffee. But that’s a different story.

Would you buy an NFT from a famous brand?

hi, my name is Gucci and I’m an NFT.

Gucci, a luxury fashion house that’s been around for about 200 years, has just launched a collection of NFTs. And as you’d expect, they all look very.. NFTish. With abstract and outrageous lines and colours and intriguing shapes.


Would you buy one? I wouldn’t. Maybe.


They floor price is around $4,000.
