Democrats are already blaming Andrew Yang for losing in 2024 and they haven’t even lost yet. Figures.
Indeed it will @AndrewYang. And you'll be driving, but the entire country will go down with you.

I think the biggest things about an ETF are abstracting the unit bias and introducing passive flows. People won't be as freaked out by the high unit cost if it's wrapped in another vehicle. They'll just know the underlying is hella bullish.

It‘s one thing to criticize those who farm and dump retroactive airdrops, but maybe you should also ask why so many projects use these transparently broken designs, if not to give a hidden premine for their founders and friends?

The experimentation going on right now with DAOs is the biggest revolution in corporate governance since the LLC; maybe longer. It’s awesome, and we (both regulators and participants) should let innovation thrive. 3/

The decentralization revolution might best be seen as a revolt against modern corporate autocracy, where imperial CEOs are strong, and institutions dominate shareholders, leaving individual shareholders without a real say in the company. 4/

Our welfare system has failed. It is more a trap than a safety net. I do not want my hard-earned tax dollars going to government bureaucracy, making decisions for people. Universal basic income will empower people to make their own decisions while ensuring basic needs are met.

Unpopular opinion: the SEC making it harder for VCs, devs, etc. to dump on uninformed retail is a good thing

Selling off in sympathy w/ a potential China liquidity crisis (credit tightening) does not make sense. If we anticipate a large global equities sell-off, $BTC should rally. It's the SoV of choice for many of us.

The chances that an American born in 1990 will earn more than their parents are down to 50% and declining; in 1940 the same figure was 92%. Worker productivity has skyrocketed since 1970s, yet worker pay has stayed more or less constant. —@AndrewYang, Forward

we will soon decouple human drudgery from production
To those not yet convinced on universal basic income...I get it, but understand... For the first time in history, we will soon decouple human drudgery from production. This is a wonderful advancement in our evolution. #UBI will ensure all basic needs are met. It's humanitarian.

Seeing the Met Gala makes me think of the golden calf made by the sinners when Moses went up to Mount Sinai.

I see DAOs as an internet-native form of organizing human cooperation. I think in 20 years we will probably just call them „companies“ or „organizations“ because decentralized technology will be the norm not the exception

Dallas Fed prez Robert Kaplan trades e-minis at >$1m per clip. Boston Fed prez Eric Rosengren trades in and out of Annaly and mortgage REITS. A junior analyst at Citi has more restrictions on her PA than Fed governors. Burn. It. The. Fuck. Down.
7/ In other words, this is complete and utter bullsh*t. We're ending the thread here so as to not spending our entire Thursday night fulminating over the mire of two old men.

“Basic income is not a favor, but a right. And its proponents have spanned the spectrum from the left to the right.” Hear more about the case for basic universal income: t.ted.com/ZIkYY7z

#Bitcoin is not trying to become a national currency. It's doing something far more dangerous. It's encouraging people to put their savings outside the system. Learn about exiting the system. #TIOMv2 is available in English, Spanish, & German 📘 aantonop.io/booksshop
