    Terracoin, a crypto pegged to the $1.00 mark and used as a de facto “money market fund,” plunged this week to under $0.50, causing all investors to lose half their money and destabilizing the entire crypto market.

    Other cryptos are down 20-40% this week alone, and some are down 75%-90% in the last 3 months.

        Yes, sorry, Terra.

          From advertising in the Super Bowl to the brink of collapse all within the same calendar year echoes the Dot Com bust in more ways than one!


          Binance is backing out of its plans to acquire FTX, the company said Wednesday, leaving Sam Bankman-Fried’s crypto empire on the verge of collapse.
          The reversal comes one day after Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao announced that the world’s largest cryptocurrency firm had reached a nonbinding deal to buy FTX’s non-U.S. businesses for an undisclosed amount, rescuing the company from a liquidity crisis. Earlier this year, FTX was valued at $32 billion by private investors.



          “In the beginning, our hope was to be able to support FTX’s customers to provide liquidity,” Binance said in a tweet Wednesday. “But the issues are beyond our control or ability to help.”

              The article does not mention Ohtani but does mention Naomi Osaka.

                Ohtani was mentioned in several other articles about the lawsuit. The NY Post omitted his name for some reason.

                      It is amazing that this can still happen after folks have been burnt before. Regulation and reform is long overdue in the space.

                        Commissioner Gordon is not a fan of cryptocurrency.

                          Agree or not (I think he is too dismissive of crypto in general), this was a great speech. I had to look up his background--he has a degree in Economics fro UVA, greaet school/program. He ain't just a talking head.

                            The FBI says this Bulgarian ‘Cryptoqueen’ scammed investors out of $4 billion. Then she boarded a plane in 2017 and disappeared.

                            Ruja Ignatova launched her cryptocurrency OneCoin with bold statements like, "In two years, nobody will speak about bitcoin anymore." Investors around the world flooded her with cash, but as OneCoin collapsed under criminal investigations, she boarded a flight to Greece and vanished.

                                And of course, I lost my stomach for crypto and pulled out at a small loss rather than stick it out for the rebound. This sort of high risk investing is just not for me, I guess. I didn't have the patience to wait for gains.
