Shitcoin.com Newsletter #49 - the Tangle in Taipei
Good day Shitcoiners,
After the pump of weeks gone by the last few days have returned to focus on spicy shenanigans including Arthur Hayes, Craig Wright and Bitcoin podcasters enjoying free upgrades. What a time to be alive.
You may have noticed that many of your favourite services were frazzled due to a Cloudflare outage. As Pomp would say though, Bitcoin doesn’t ever go down!
Some of your favourite Bitcoin-related services still did though.
And we also heard some of the crypto big hitters (sorry, we didn’t really mean the CNBC guy is included in that list) were meeting up in Taipei.
As part of the Asia Blockchain Summit, there was one standout debate. Arthur Hayes, BitMEX CEO would face off against crypto critic and academic, Nouriel Roubini.
It promised to be spicy, and it did not disappoint.
The debate wasn’t streamed and word on the grapevine is Arthur has control of the footage. Nouriel called foul play, Arthur told him to be patient. Give us the tape!
If you can’t wait any longer and you’d like to be transported back to torrenting in 2011, fan-favourite Romano came through with a bootleg version just for you (and his Twitter followers).
Don’t worry, it’s a legitimate recording and not a NSFW porn clip.
This also seemed like the right time to send this your way. Right before Taipei, Arthur spent some time breaking down what Libra means for the world. Read it here.
Now to what Shitcoin.com head honcho Andreas has been up to this week. He’s been livestreaming his latest Sunday activity, coding a crypto exchange from scratch!
Speaking of interesting crypto projects, news of CoinFLEX, an exchange trialling futures contracts for yet-to-launch tokens is hitting the headlines.
Now to other spicy news, Peter McCormack got an upgrade…
And was following the updates of his arch-nemesis from Miami.
Some in attendance of Craig’s latest courtroom appearance gave updates of what went down, sharing that Judge Reinhart was not too fond of Wright’s antics.
It seems that Faketoshi was spurting some other interesting anecdotes too, stating he was ashamed of his invention which had spurred the distribution of drugs and child pornography.
One crypto Lion stepped in with a golden nugget.
What would a CSW developments segment of the newsletter be without a meme or two?
If the news of Faketoshi fluffing his lines in court are not making you bullish, then maybe Max will get you excited about what’s to come.
Or will this masterpiece get you hitting that buy button or going 100x on the BitMEX casino?
What might work for you, may not work for Charles E. Cheese.
And there we have it.
See you next time,
