Arsenal adverts for cryptocurrency ‘fan tokens’ banned Bottom line: the British government banned an English football team from advertising its NFTs. Regulators felt the team should have warned buyers that the NFTs constituted an investment in crypto assets. My take: no good deed goes unpunished. Seems like regulators do not understand what an “NFT” is, but I don’t know whether Arsenal had an obligation to disclaim any financial consequences. If it’s any consolation, regulators also zapped a cider company for making alcohol seem cool and several influencers for not telling people they get paid to influence. Rules are rules! Why we care: no matter how popular crypto gets, it’s not mainstream until the Boomers start using it. At that point, the rules will swing in our favor. In the US, marijuana was illegal everywhere until Boomers got political and economic power. Now it’s legal in almost every state. Some say the laws changed from scientific discovery, criminal justice reform, or the need for new sources of tax revenue. I’m pretty sure the laws changed because Boomers like doing weed. The Biggest Threat to Trust in Cryptocurrency: Rug Pulls Put 2021 Scam Revenue Close to All-time Highs Bottom line: 2021 was a good year for rug pulls and ponzi schemes. My take: I’m surprised 2019 topped 2021. From researching altcoins, I can assure you scams abound and there are terrible people associated with some of the biggest, most successful projects (and a lot of the little ones, too). I would have thought the amount would be higher than $8 billion. Why we care: this is a dangerous market. Yes, the report says *only* about $8 billion worth of scams, but those scams all target you. For those who celebrate Christmas, a heartwarming story to leave you with.  Watch This Video Relax and enjoy the ride!

Weekend Rundown - October 10, 2021
Happy Sunday! A few days ago, I saw a social media poll that asked whether people think bitcoin’s most recent upswing from $40k to $55k is a bull run, bull trap, or too early to tell. 63% picked either bull trap or too early to tell. Either we have a lot of people in disbelief that bitcoin’s price can go up from here or the poll’s respondents were excessively bearish. At this point, for reasons I’ve shared for several weeks, you’re going to really have to strain to make the bear case. I talked about this in more detail in my update from October 6, 2021. Get the Update It was already a stretch to say bitcoin went into a bear market earlier this year. That case was purely semantic—it was based on your personal definition of “bear market.” We didn’t see the types of price patterns, trading behaviors, or on-chain data we saw during any previous bear market. At the same time, that didn’t mean we had to stay in a bull market. Since bitcoin’s price bottomed on June 22, 2021, it’s gone up for the past 110 days. It went down for only 69 days after April’s peak. If going down for 69 days triggers a bear market, does going up for 110 days trigger a bull market? We shall see. As of today, any price down to $29,000 or up to $120,000 would seem normal, though I’d certainly start to worry should the price go near either of those extremes in the coming weeks. I still expect we will get a result similar to what we’ve seen in the past when bitcoin has shown similar on-chain behaviors and price movements. In that case, bitcoin's price will reach a new all-time high in November, perhaps late October or early December. It’s about a two-month swing if history repeats itself. Premium subscribers, I’ll keep you posted on that, altseason, and whatever else I see as we move forward. Read below for some news and notes that you may enjoy.

Weekend Rundown - October 3, 2021
This is the first rundown of October! Welcome to “Q4,” as they say in the biz. Prices have started running across the board and people are getting excited. I’ve been excited since August so our recent pump doesn’t change anything for me. I expect the market will go sideways and up a little bit over the next few months. Over the past few months, bitcoin’s on-chain, trading, and price data matched roughly what we’ve seen in its seven previous bull market consolidations, each of which lasted 5-7 months. I’m assuming the market will play out roughly the same way this time, too. While it’s great to celebrate a little pump, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. If you’re following my plan, you know what I’m doing, and it has nothing to do with projections and expectations.
