1st May 2024 > > Price action, HK, & Zhao.


tl;dr

Price action is a touch on the gloomy side. Adding insult to injury, Zhao gets off very lightly, to the disappointment of us all.

That’s a painful movement in crypto prices. According to Glassnode, much of the selling pressure is from very short-term holders, who are speculative by nature rather than being investors. Negative price action is an encouragement to speculators to sell. I remain unsure about the wisdom behind the plan to buy high and sell low, but perhaps I will understand it one day.


Liquidations of leveraged longs are picking up some pace, putting further downward pressure on prices.


I suspect we have to wait until the usual suspects (Schiff, EU, World Bank, Warren, FT, Cramer etc.) declare once more that BTC is dead before prices make a meaningful recovery.

Curious Cryptos’ Commentary –Changpeng Zhao

The CCC was long critical of man-child Zhao’s unacceptably immature and lax approach to compliance with rules and regulations by the firm he founded, Binance. For a long time, he maintained that as Binance did not have a head office, it need not answer to any regulator anywhere in the world.


Having pleaded guilty to violation of money-laundering laws, Zhao was sentenced yesterday. Though was given a custodial sentence, he got off extremely lightly with a mere four months rather than the three years the prosecutors were aiming for. Having been detained since before Christmas, I guess he gets to go home straight away, to spend quality time with his many billions of dollars gained by breaking the law.
