I know there’s pain (I know there’s pain). Why do you lock yourself up in these crypto chains? (These crypto chains.)
No one can save your portfolio except for you.
Don’t ever let Wall Street walk all over you.
Just open your crypto wallet and your mind (Mmm).
Is it really fair to feel this panic inside? (Woah).
Umm … hold up. Are we really gonna go through this whole song? ‘Cause if so, I’m gonna need some more coffee.
Someday some rally’s gonna make you wanna turn around and say: “I’ll buy!”
Until then, Great Ones, are you gonna let this market hold you down and make you cry?
Don’t you know? Don’t you know things can change…
Things’ll go your way…
If you hodl on for one more day!
Can you hodl on for one more day?
OK, so maybe you’re not quite as jazzed about the crypto market as Great Stuff is right now.
Admittedly, it’s been a rough week for most of the major crypto players … and Wall Street’s panic-selling has even made some investors question the legitimacy of cryptocurrencies as a safe-haven when the market starts melting down.
I get it. When you’re reading headlines about certain “stablecoins,” like Luna, losing most of their value in a single week, it’s perfectly reasonable to feel squeamish about all the other crypto coins out there.
But before you start pounding the big red “Panic!” button — y’all have one of those sitting on your desks, too, right? — I want to reiterate that not all stablecoins are created equal. Just like not all traditional cryptos are created equal.
Enter Tether (USDT), a stablecoin cryptocurrency that’s pegged to the valuation of the U.S. dollar — just like TerraUSD (UST), which we talked about the other day.
The difference is that while TerraUSD is backed by Luna (LUNA) — another crypto — which is, in turn, backed by Bitcoin (BTC) — yet another crypto — which you then sell for money … or something, Tether is actually backed by cash.
So to close out your Tether holdings, you trade them one-for-one with U.S. dollars. What’s more, Tether has enough cash on hand to handle most redemptions.
That theory was put to the test recently when crypto traders in the stablecoin market lost their damn minds after TerraUSD and Luna both cratered.
To combat this run on redemptions, Tether pumped more money into its banking channels to cover. The situation righted itself pretty quickly for Tether … not so much for TerraUSD.
Here’s Tether’s Chief Technology Officer Paolo Ardoino commenting on the situation:
It’s all fun and games until you are a $10 billion stablecoin. Until you are a $5, $10 billion stablecoin, even if you have some liquidations because you are backed by some Luna and a small portion of bitcoin, the current crypto markets are still able to maybe, probably, absorb that.
But if you start doubling the size to a $20 billion stablecoin … there is no way that the market can absorb these types of liquidations.
That’s a smart CTO running a smart cryptocurrency.
The problem is: How do you know which crypto coins are smart and which require three different forms of crypto exchanges just to get your cash back?
Well, Great Ones, you’re in luck! Because I have a solution for you right here. Or rather, Ian “The Crypto” King has a solution for you…
Which he explains in this exclusive presentation.
In it, Ian will show you how he sorts out the good cryptos from the bad ones … and how he’s used this strategy to discover a little-known crypto the financial elite say could be 20X bigger than bitcoin.
This “Next Gen Coin,” as Ian calls it, has the ability to “power the rails of global finance” … a $100 trillion industry.
No wonder Elon Musk made sure this coin was one of only three cryptos he owns … and why billionaire hedge fund manager Ken Griffin said it’s “superior to bitcoin and will eventually replace it.”
