Let me drop a 50 bomb on this one

Likes are meaningless.
Subscribers are yesterday’s news.

Claps are everything.

The difference between 49 and 50 claps is massive. When someone gives me 49 claps I think they hate me. This person — if you can call them that — went out of their way just to stop at the full 50. You know who you are. I can’t sleep at night because of you.

This is why I think we should start a petition to run claps like a Patreon account. You know, something like this:

👉10 claps = You’re on your way. But it’s not good enough. …


This is how much ADA you need

Instagram

May 13, 2021 was the most important day in Cardano’s history.

Cardano (ADA) bucked the trend. It broke all-time highs — getting that $2 monkey off its back — and was the sole top-ten cryptocurrency rising in value during a historic sell-off.

They even danced on the graves of their victors and asked Tesla to partner with them following Elon Musk’s public diss against Bitcoin.

Cardano and its creator Charles Hoskinson have balls. You need them to survive in this cut-throat crypto market.

Today Cardano is the fourth most valuable token in the world. And after yesterday’s achievement, I’m…


Solana Summer is just getting started

A good friend of mine recently asked what’s next on the horizon for cryptocurrency…

‘XRP?’
Nah. It has Central Bank Digital Currencies to worry about.

‘ADA?’
No. The Alonzo hard fork was already priced in.

Doge? Lol.

A few weeks ago I told him to look into Solana. I don’t think he did. Sucks to suck. Solana is leading the next generation of cryptocurrencies. It’s faster, far less expensive to transact on, and scales better than Ethereum.

Here’s why Solana can make you a millionaire by 2026.

Solana Came From `Nowhere

Founded in 2017 by former Qualcomm tech engineers Anatoly Yakovenko and Greg Fitzgerald…


The carnival that is Western civilization is coming to an end

1984 film

Two plus two is five.

That was always my favorite takeaway from George Orwell’s 1984. It meant that any government party or social group could make you believe anything based on emotional fervor and not empiricism.

They’d likely say: “Sure, two plus two is four is an excellent thing; but if we’re going to start praising everything, then two plus two is five is sometimes also a most charming little thing.”

Like in Orwell’s novel, Western civilization is losing logic and objectivity.

Our sense of morality is dictated by dogmatic social justice warriors and the corporate media, the latter of…


More projects on my radar

Bored Apes

I’m staying in Miami for the week talking with some of the greatest minds in crypto. Yes — some of them are psychos. Others, however, are the most brilliant people I’ve ever spoken to.

‘Name one genius who ain’t crazy,’ as a crazy genius once said.

Although coming down here did cut off valuable time to write, it has informed me of some of the greatest altcoins coming up in the space.

I’ve heard about a crypto-Amazon, new NFT platforms, and some exciting use cases for blockchain that I had never considered.

I’ll be writing about these electrifying new projects…


My next investments for 2021

Here’s an important question you should ask yourself as a crypto investor: ‘How will the next big wave of people get into cryptocurrency?’

Will it be through crypto video games? No little Timmy.

Will it be through decentralized finance? Wrong again, as DeFi is still too boring for most people to care.

‘Oh — I know the answer, oh, oh, pick me!

‘NFTs!?’ Spot on, as usual, Isaiah McCall (thank you thank you).

Here’s the dirty little secret that only Gary Vaynechuck knows about non-fungible tokens (NFTS); they are the most appealing part of crypto to a big chunk of…


Axie Infinity

Axie Infinity (AXS) exploded in 2021 as one of the most popular games and crypto investments of the year.

However, some are not sold on it yet.

Me, I’m not sold on it.

I recently spoke via email with Tim Denning about Axie Infinity and expressed some of my concerns. Now after exploring the game for a couple of weeks I can say I’ve changed my opinion (slightly).

Here are some things to consider before picking up Axie Infinity.

1. Axie Infinity is Fun-ish

Created by video game studio Sky Mavis, Axie Infinity is Pokémon meets Tamagotchi.

As in Pokémon, you have to breed, raise…


This is investing advice pt.2

David Lynch’s Eraserhead

Alright sit down little Timmy and listen.

The amount of financial education you enjoyed in the educational system is zero. Maybe less than zero. As in the Wizard of Oz, you’re told not to pay attention to the man behind the curtain.

Nothing to see here. Move along.

However, unlike the Wizard of Oz, you had the wizarding power inside you all along. All you need is $1,000 and a little financial literacy.

Are you ready little Timmy? Ok, let’s begin —

Put in as much as you can — as early as you can

Compound interest is the first rule to investing.

I tried explaining this to a stripper once but she…


‘Legalize hate speech’

Aladdin Sane

When did Americans get so weak?

We used to stand for something. Now we’re dumb, fat, afraid, and overly dependent on broken government systems. Weak!

I’d love to blame the world. It’s so easy to do. Thanks America! Thanks Covid! Thank you God for fucking all of us.

Nope. That’s too easy. It’s a cop-out that spineless people use.

I’m to blame. You’re to blame. We’re all to blame for this. Who’s to say that if I got my shit together to the maximum degree that it wouldn’t profoundly affect the world? David Goggins did it. Jordan Peterson did it…


This fight is about to get ugly

Instagram

The 2008 crash will happen again — and it’ll be much, much worse than last time.

I was only 11-years-old at the time but can distinctly remember my parents and other adults freaking the fuck out.

It was weird experiencing both 9/11 and 2008 at such a young age. 9/11 was visible, so it made sense why we were fighting back, why so many cried, and why so many were angry.

2008 was invisible, yet it destroyed lives over a longer period of time. It was a slow-motion suicide for millions of Americans.

To this day many of those same…
