My favorite thing about the Elon Musk tweet was that we got to see the tables turn on all of the Cryptorati and their sycophants, with the Cryptorati now sycophantically vying for the attention of a guy who wasn’t even talking to them. Total riot and poetic justice, that.
I share your appreciation for the opportunities that this industry has given me. Which is why I am so disappointed with the amount of fraud that is tolerated by our community (and especially its thought leaders). The Tether/Binfinex march towards “too big to fail” being dismissed as “the boy who cried wolf” is one example. The mounting evidence that IEOs are nothing more than exchange-mandated pump-and-dump schemes being ignored is another. It seems that transparency is only important when you want to see with that “other guy” is doing.
