Tristram Waye for Bitvo | Oct 6, 2022 Get used to the bears (but don't get too negative) Crazy is just getting started. Which is saying something after three years of cray cray everywhere you look.  And there is a lot to be bearish about overall. Extreme market negativity is more than simply a bias.  It’s an emotional commitment.  And it’s the kind of commitment that can cloud your judgment and cause you to miss periodic market inflections. These inflections are powerful bear market rallies.  And these rallies can represent key opportunities in a bear market. Sunday, September 25, the British pound got tagged to lows not seen since the mid-80s. The DXY looked like one of Elon’s SpaceX ships heading off into space. We are just starting to see destabilizing moves in various assets. Geopolitical events are taking shape into a season of important catalysts. Crypto hasn’t been immune to these market moves as it trades around wider market expectations. Don't be too negative:  And as you look around at the market commentary during this period, you may find yourself experiencing something similar. Everyone is trying to steer your focus, emotion, and action. If it hasn’t happened yet, the ...

SEC | Release | Oct 3, 2022 The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced charges against Kim Kardashian for touting on social media a crypto asset security offered and sold by EthereumMax without disclosing the payment she received for the promotion. Kardashian agreed to settle the charges, pay $1.26 million in penalties, disgorgement, and interest, and cooperate with the Commission’s ongoing investigation. [approximately $260,000 in disgorgement, which represents her promotional payment, plus prejudgment interest, and a $1,000,000 penalty.] The SEC’s order finds that Kardashian failed to disclose that she was paid $250,000 to publish a post on her Instagram account about EMAX tokens, the crypto asset security being offered by EthereumMax. Kardashian’s post contained a link to the EthereumMax website, which provided instructions for potential investors to purchase EMAX tokens. See:  AltFi Series (2 of 3): Regulatory Landscape on Stablecoins Kardashian also agreed to not promote any crypto asset securities for three years. SEC Chair Gary Gensler: This case is a reminder that, when celebrities or influencers endorse investment opportunities, including crypto asset securities, it doesn’t mean that those investment products are right for all investors.
