A Message from Alexander Höptner, CEO of BitMEX
Before I introduce Serf No More, Arthur’s latest piece, I’d like to mention a significant development from the world of BitMEX this week.
On Tuesday, Chainalysis removed the ‘high risk’ label it had held in place for BitMEX for less than a year. Although we disagreed with Chainalysis’ assessment at the time, we kept channels of communication open. We’re glad to get this result, and are very proud of the progress we’ve made on matters of compliance, AML, and user verification in the meantime.
Speaking of progress, this week’s Crypto Trader Digest has Arthur tracking El Salvador, the first country to make bitcoin legal tender. In his signature irreverent style, we go deep into how Arthur thinks El Salvador could create a bitcoin-backed currency, and how meaningful that might be for countries most at risk by the quickening pace of automation in the labour markets.
Like the entire crypto community, I’m bullish on El Salvador. You’ll be too after reading the latest Crypto Trader Digest, Serf No More.
