A Message from Alexander Höptner, CEO of 100x Group

No one becomes a (consistently) successful trader overnight. However, there is a trait of those who manage to pick it up quickly, which is having the ability to think critically and independently. What stands in the way for many is the refusal to put emotions aside and absorb information dispassionately. Hard pill to swallow, but it’s the truth.

Staying stuck in your echo chamber or just adopting the beliefs of the loudest person in the room is a recipe for disaster when it comes to investing. This habit, that many of us have, has to stop in order to fully understand markets of any description.

In this latest edition of Crypto Trader Digest, Arthur takes a look at some of the top trending topics in the crypto space, and in true Arthur fashion, presents you with facts that will challenge your thinking, positively.

Thirst Trap

(Any views expressed in the below are the personal views of the author and should not form the basis for making investment decisions, nor be construed as a recommendation or advice to engage in investment transactions.)

The majority of my essays in 2021 have focused on the fundamental building blocks of my bullish opinion on the future of crypto. Few words are dedicated to current events unfolding before us. In an age when virtue signaling social media influencers reign supreme, critical thought that deconstructs popular narratives using logic and first principles thinking is hardly proffered. It’s why I prefer to read something a few thousand words in length – even if I disagree with the author – because the length allows the writer to dig into the grey of an issue. Few things in this world are black and white – everything is a shade of grey. 6 second TikTok videos, on the other hand, can only convey so much information.

Maybe I’m just an old curmudgeon who refuses to purse my lips like a duck and create thirst traps posing in front of material objects I don’t own. 

In this piece, I’ll offer my thoughts on a few topics du jour that are currently floating around the popular media narrative soup. My goal is to provoke thought. None of my musings here are intended to be read as actionable trade ideas, but if one of these narratives run counter to a belief you have about a particular crypto asset, hopefully reading these words will allow for a moment of reflection that could culminate in a change in your perspective.

Keyboard Warriors Take Control of Environmental Policy

I’m glad I spend more time hitting balls with a racquet than following the tweet storm of the day. If there is one topic that fundamentally irks me, it’s the current ESG narrative – i.e. that fossil fuels are the devil, and that it is economically viable today for us to stop burning fossil fuels altogether. If followed blindly, I believe this fundamental misunderstanding will result in a significant misallocation of capital due to first level shallow thinking.

I’m not denying that burning fossil fuels has a major impact on our environment. Energy rules everything we do in life. We consume it to live and enjoy ourselves. And the ways in which we produce energy have externalities. 

Here is what I know, cause I’m good at the internet.

Latest News from BitMEX

Bitcoin on the Moon, Courtesy of BitMEX

BitMEX will mint a one-of-a-kind physical bitcoin, similar to the Casascius coins of 2013, which will be delivered to the Moon by Astrobotic. The coin will hold one bitcoin at an address to be publicly released, underneath a tamper-evident hologram covering. The coin will proudly display the BitMEX name, the mission name, the date it was minted and the bitcoin price at the time of minting.

BitMEX Receives Important ISO Information Security Certification

It’s difficult to overstate the importance of information security for a platform like BitMEX. Traders trust us because of our track record on security – we have never lost a single Satoshi through intrusion or hacking. But security is never a static process and in order to continue to set the bar as high as possible, we sought – and were awarded – one of the most rigorous certifications: ISO/IEC 27001.
