BTC Miners Sell Equipment for Deep Discounts
Bitcoin miners are selling mining machines at deep discounts. The banking industry uses 56 times more energy than bitcoin mining. One trend that could send bitcoin to the pinnacle of asset classes. Former BitMEX CEO Arthur Hayes says bitcoin buying will end when central bank digital currencies (CBDC) take over. Of course, with more single-sided liquidity pools, bitcoin could be the DeFi foundation. Bitcoin isn’t likely to become the DeFi foundation, nor are CBDCs likely to kill bitcoin buying. There will always be a segment of the crypto market interested in bitcoin. Maybe it will diminish over time, maybe not. There’s also a very real possibility that it will eventually be adopted as real currency. In that case, it will cease being an investor’s wet dream.

Meta is laying off metaverse workers. Matthew Ball debunks one of the metaverse’s biggest myths. There’s no metaverse without Web3. These 7 movies will prepare you for the metaverse. I agree with Ball in many respects. The metaverse will not be inherently dystopian. The biggest challenge will be who owns what in the metaverse. But if it ends up being just another power grab by Big Tech to own creators’ intellectual property, then it may as well be dystopian.
A team of researchers have discovered that 97.7 percent of Uniswap launches are rug pulls. The report was published in March 2022, but if this is true, why haven’t we heard more about it until now? In May, Uniswap hit $1 trillion in total volume and CoinMarketCap lists it as third ranking decentralized exchange by market cap and 17th among cryptocurrencies overall. With that much going for it, I’d think that some victims of rug pulls would be very vocal about it if nearly 100 percent of total launches were rug pulls.
