how do the crypto punks end up agreeing with the sec. how do they become sociopaths. no bailouts for celsians because that somehow equals bank bailouts which of course meant retail and plebs. the crypto space is gentrified and full of unicorn free marketeers as savage as monopoly capitalists at whose banquet table they wish to dine

I used to think that the astrology column in the newspaper was the pinnacle of ambiguous fluff writing in which the author could say one thing in which plausibly it could be interpreted to mean just the opposite. Allow me to summarize the podcast: "XY will surely go up unless 'factors' occur to make it go down all the while transitory trends make it go sideways until it autocorrect." And you can take that and your Confederate Dollars to the bank.

An episode that solidifies my regard for Coindesk Podcast as a voice to be trusted and listened to. Toward the end the question was raised: Will this controversy die down as was the case with Occupy Wall Street? It may quiet down, go subterranean. But it will linger on quietly as the deepest distrust of a system and a government that consistently and purposely makes life at best subsistence for 90% of Americans. I remind the reader of Solidarity in Poland in the 1980s. It grew to become unstoppable because the ordinary citizen was forced to believe that the elites in the Communist government were only crooks and gangsters. It was only a matter of months and the entire system was entirely overthrown. For the German Democratic Republic it only took days. 2007-2008 Great Recession in the USA certainly convinced the intelligent members (who have long memories) how rotten this system is. Year 2020 shows how many citizens disbelieve the legitimacy of the system today, even if they differ on the proper political solution. From now on US society will decline until either a new societal formation is found or chaos arises as with the French Revolution of 1789.

Magnificent episode; thank you! Best coverage I have heard so far of this fascinating situation. Centralized exchanges are damaging their own reputations by interfering here; this may end up creating one of the biggest cases for Decentralized Exchanges if they keep changing the rules to protect foolhardy institutional traders.

Gonna be interesting to see how far this "narrative market machine" goes before we might see a swing back towards acknowledging that modern equities are still beholden to our current day financial systems and thus need SOME level of fundamental (cash flow, revenue... A functioning business...) soundness to support them on any "sustainable" basis. Loving this format, btw! Keep it up!
