Bitcoin price has been rising and some argue that it is tracking along with the S2F model! Others argue that this is statistically invalid. PlanB, pseudonymous analyst and creator of the S2F and S2FX models rejoins me on the show to talk:

  • S2F and S2FX vs recent market action
  • Critiques and spurious correlations
  • Comparison with past cycles
  • PlanB’s thoughts on whether this is the final cycle

Read_498 - Can Governments Stop Bitcoin? [Alex Gladstein]
"So far, it seems that when governments try to ban or restrict Bitcoin, it ends up merely accelerating the adoption of the currency inside their countries. Governments that have failed miserably with their Wars on Drugs may find stopping people from holding something that’s invisible, borderless, and teleporting much more difficult." - Alex Gladstein Today we read an amazing article from Quillette by returning author and brilliant Bitcoiner, Alex Gladstein. Can governments ban Bitcoin? Will they? Will this kill Bitcoin? Find out in an excellent walk through the many different potentialities of a government attack on Bitcoin, and why its likely that they all fail, or backfire in a major. Plus a 50 minute Guy's Take on all the reasons Alex is potentially right, & what we can draw from Bitcoin's history that informs this perspective.

Bitcoin Bull Market Strategy - Feb ‘21 Trading Update with Willy Woo
“Buy the dip is the main thing you want to do, and the only time you really want to consider selling the top is the macro top.” — Willy Woo Location: Remotely Date: Monday 22nd Feb Company: Hypersheet Role: Co-Founder Since last month's episode with Willy Woo, bitcoin went from ~$30,000 to a new all-time high of over $58,000. This price action came on the back of a couple of massive announcements: Tesla added $1.5bn of bitcoin to its company treasury. MicroStrategy announced a raise of $600m in a convertible senior note sale to buy bitcoin before reassessing and increasing the raise to $900m. Upon completion of the raise, the company estimated the proceeds to be close to $1.05bn The bitcoin market cap broke through $1 trillion While corporations are still driving the bitcoin price, Willy Woo believes that we have entered a new phase of the bull market and that retail traders have arrived. As stated in his recent newsletter: "Bitcoin's blockchain is seeing 20,000 new users per day, this is a sudden 3x increase over the normal 5,000-10,000 per day previously. It's a very sure sign that retail investors are now coming in. They typically start ramping up in numbers during the middle phases of bull markets." In this interview, we discuss the Tesla & MicroStrategy news, the recent drop in price and what retail entering the market will mean for bitcoin.

DyDx founder unpacks ethereum scaling and DeFi derivatives
Decentralized derivatives exchange dYdX is expanding. After raising $10 million in Series B funding last month, the team is gearing up for its coming V3 launch. Founder Antonio Juliano sat down with The Scoop this week to talk about where the decentralized finance (DeFi) space is going in the coming year. They could be the answer to the traditional financial system's transparency and security problems. But first, they have to scale. Juliano told The Scoop how dYdX is handling scalability, including mitigating high gas fees. They're using ZK-Rollups, or zero knowledge proofs. These proofs take information and create a "constant sized data object" which means no matter how much data is input, the information remains the same size. The idea is that thousands of trades can be compressed into a small size to run on Ethereum, circumventing the high fees. They're planning on launching their scaling solution in partnership with StarkWare in the next two weeks, according to Juliano. Juliano broke down dYdX's path to ZK-Rollups in this week's episode of The Scoop, along with: Where dYdX's origins began and why it was long before the boom of DeFi. How its flagship product, the perpetual swap, works. Why Ethereum layer 2 scaling solutions help projects like dYdX build out their market and which solutions dYdX almost went with. When the DeFi market might collide with the centralized markets, and how interoperability and scaling will lead the way.
