The month of November as we saw it.

In continuum with what we were experiencing in October, the month of November gave us more reason to keep riding the bitcoin wave as it hurdles the $19,000 mark hitting close to ATHs. The global macro environment was something that also could’ve been a major tailwind as we saw the US presidential race wrap up with a presumably crypto friendly Biden cabinet, but this is something to keep an eye out for. Because eventually the more and more we see government becoming more knowledgeable about crypto, the more and more they will…


We are inching closer to one of the biggest holidays in America which boasts the annual tradition of gobbling down turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and all the carbs your body yearns for. Although this year may not have brought the most joyous occasions as we have all been disrupted by the global pandemic, it’s better to look at the glass half full and appreciate some of the positives that happened in the crypto world.

The month of October as we saw it.

INTRODUCTION

October was anything but a 180 degree flip from the month we had in September filled with DeFi thematics, rug pulls, and more of the scammy nature of food-themed protocols barraging out Twitter feeds. I think the undertone and feeling October gave was a sense of relief and ‘back to bitcoin’ pivot where the crypto king once again gave us a feeling of rejuvenation. The price of bitcoin has finally broke through the $13k resistance level for the first time since June of 2019. A year of literal bitcoin sideways trading…

INTRODUCTION

The month of September once again reminds us that this space continues to surprise in ways more than one. And in return to those that are following and investing in the space, continuation of sleep deprivation, drama, and at times confusion warps us to another level of questioning our participation in this industry. But we love it. We love seeing the novel advancements of permission-less finance, the innovation on protocol governance and launches, the lighthearted trends of food-meme’d tokens, and so on and so forth. We’ve finally…

You didn’t want to push that transaction through because gas fees costed more than the transaction itself.

(Figure 1) Jamie and Charlie of Brownfield Fund getting served up a fresh ISDA slap in the face

Introduction

For those who have seen the blockbuster Wall Street movie, The Big Short, a film depicting certain actors who’ve bet against the housing market of 2008, there is a particular scene that can resonate well with what we are encountering with transaction fees on Ethereum. When two young garage-managed fund managers, Charlie and Jamie, try to apply for the chances of trading high volume CDS (Credit Default Swaps) with JP Morgan, they immediately get stopped short by the JPM banker who tells…
