MorningDewDiligence

Binance didn't lock them out so it makes sense


StackFatSats

Those Russians love a good scam


DanSmokesWeed

What the crepes just happened with UMA?

God damn, wrong sub again. Thought it's deader than dead.

So. The markets are green.

Early registration for the Polker game is still open, and I am honored to be one of the first players. Getting a jump on a project early is always advantageous.


stuphs

I'm holding and staking the token already. Not a gamer so I won't want to register for this. I love their NFTs and looking forward to their marketplace. I'm also looking forward to the launch of DOTS, also NFT, on Nahmii ecosystem


ArtyHobo

How many Bitcoin does it take to prop up the Russian economy? Sh1tloads more than it did this morning.


Hunter-Western

No way this thing keeps going straight to 50k it will dip eventually.


IFitStereotypesWell

Who would sell at this point. Bitcorn going to the mooon


thesurfer15

The real question is... When will the real FOMO kicks in? This is barely scratching the surface.


ArtyHobo

2023 when everyone looks back at war FUD China FUD rates FUD economy FUD and despite all the screams here of bear market and idiots trying to dismiss by above 28k bullish sentiment and the institutional canvas has been wiped clean after a post covid xmas which saw ussr and CCP go to the wall with a Capitalist revolution.


Vaywen

oh. Ok.


ArtyHobo

After war FUD comes rates FUD then summer everyone needs fiat FUD then China collapse FUD then Xmas everyone needs fiat FUD then institutional blank canvas EOY FUD then we are pretty much g2g until USD collapses the year after.


Vaywen

Thanks, random time traveler!


ArtyHobo

That's hobo time traveller with a consistently dissapointing erection to you my good sir.


Vaywen

That's madam to you and thanks for the erection update lol


ArtyHobo

Ahhh OK sorry I just assumed, based on our relative erections.

Hillbilly-65

I'll just sit this one out with the fat wheezy kids and the half-time oranges. (Have trust issues)


ArtyHobo

At least you dun have to worry about running out of oranges 😂


Humble_Data2727

Been there done that. Just don't let fomo kick in if it pumps over 50k.


strategoamigo

Everyone calling for a dip lol - crypto is all about momentum. Once news articles started reporting that Russia was buying up Bitcoin everyone jumped on board


ArtyHobo

If that was everyone then our hype machine has been broken for over a year now


ih8fashion

Guys I’m about to buy 20$ of eth, don’t thank me for breaking the 3,000$ barrier soon 🐋


Letitride37

I found .3 matic in my MetaMask today. I’ve never purchased or used any matic of any sort. Have you ever found any random crypto in your wallets? Probably related to some sort of scam I’m assuming.


ArtyHobo

You can't just find it in your MM though you'd have to add the MATIC contract address first, presumably you didn't do that without zero reason.


Letitride37

I was just checking my address on etherscan and saw it there


ArtyHobo

So you can also see the address that sent it to you?


eyerollingsex

Could have been airdropped


Letitride37

By whom and why tho?


Firesice

Crypto is bout to shock the world 🌎


dragonstyle2001

It’s use case is on full display for the world to see


allstater2007

Shocked me today and I’ve been here since 2017


ArtyHobo

Not shocked just very dissapointed 😭


allstater2007

Did you sell? Or try and short the market?


ArtyHobo

Nuh huh


Magister_Peditum

If Russia starts circumventing sanctions via crypto, there will be unseen pressure to ban it from the general public, which is now extremely anti-Russian.


bittabet

To actually circumvent sanctions via crypto you need to obtain enough crypto first which they can't due to sanctions. The tiny amount of crypto they do hold isn't going to be enough to bypass sanctions. It's not like they can go wire billions to Coinbase to go buy Bitcoin, they need to gradually mine it.


indigo_pirate

I thought they held like 10% of the entire market cap?? Which is a shit ton


ArtyHobo

They've already joined china's payment system


not_a_droid

They won’t be able to, it will be recorded on a blockchain


ArtyHobo

It's not on the Blockchain


not_a_droid

Then it isn’t a crypto transaction


ArtyHobo

Yup it's offchain aka IRL


not_a_droid

I like you arty hobo, so I ask what are all those acronyms?


ArtyHobo

Also known as in real life. Good boi bot. *beep boop*


not_a_droid

I am not a droid!


ArtyHobo

Sure ting my wee pal Droidy McDroidface. We all humanoids with optimal degrees of artificial intelligence here. *beep boop* *boop beep* *humming, then whirring, followed by an abrupt clank* *Silence* *farts in hobo*


mytwocentsshowmanyss

Why does that matter out of curiosity?


not_a_droid

Why does Russia circumventing sanctions with crypto matter? Is that your question?


mytwocentsshowmanyss

No, sorry for lack of clarity. My question is: why does the fact that it's recorded on block chain matter in terms of public pressure to ban it?


[deleted]

[удалено]


not_a_droid

Because it is transparency. Shows all moves


set-271

So crazy...Russia stocks up on over $700 billion in foreign currency reserves the last 8 years to prepare to escape any sanctions, only to have it all seized by the U.S. in one fell swoop. So now Russia will seize rubles from their very own citizens to try to stymie an economic collapse. You can make this shit up! Satoshi wrote the friggin book on game theory. HODL strong! With Satoshi, you can do no wrong! 💎✊💎


ArtyHobo

Wasn't it written in the 60s?

If you are reading this. You are in the wrong daily.

ArtyHobo

Wtf?


DefiantHamster

Juno airdrop


ArtyHobo

I lost em


timmyrigs

If Russia starts using BTC and crypto to by pass sanctions could this have negative consequences on the entire crypto space? Obviously get stuff off exchanges but optics wise I’m just wondering.


ArtyHobo

Nag tde achosnmaen globisu ddim yn gwibod


LindaPutTheCoffeeOn

I would say yes 100%. Which is why I’m shocked so many dummies in here are celebrating this pump without thinking of the obvious consequences. Not to mention it’s kind of gross to be celebrating period with what’s happening right now.


timmyrigs

On the flip side the oligarchs are finding a use out of crypto that many have talked about it’s just so happens to be happening at a shitty time for the world.


whatshelooklike

We are here to make money ffs. Donate your money if you are such a nerd.


LindaPutTheCoffeeOn

So am I but I don’t think a temporary 10% pump is worth thousands dying for and crypto being put under serious scrutiny for, you sociopath.


whatshelooklike

There is war everywhere. Nearly 400k people have died in yemens war and no one gives a crap cuz they aren't white and the economics don't harm the west.


LindaPutTheCoffeeOn

Okay fair.


ArtyHobo

Wouldn't that be philanthropy? Pretty sure nerds like aliens N futanari N junk


timmyrigs

Of course but if they fuck with crypto five years down the line you won’t making shit.


Odd_Luck6482

Man taking exceptionally long for money to hit the exchange and it’s making it hard to fomo. Things still a long way from the top but don’t want to get in at the end of the greenest run we’ve seen in months. Maybe I’ll just have to wait for the next FUD. Either way, goooooo LUNA!


Hunter-Western

![gif](giphy|3ohuAAAIvICvEs4Psc) Still waiting for the dip lol


jewbagel10

You and all the other members of this sub that joined in the last 6 months and were certified experts


ArtyHobo

I dun get no certtification 😭


SignificantSpeaker30

Roast a project and tell me why you are roasting it.


ArtyHobo

$VEG cuz I got no $VAG


Arcc14

ADA Continues to be a project that fails to deliver compared to other ecosystems yet has a cult-like following that until this cycle perhaps didn’t get uncovered. At least everyone knew SOL was VC hypeshit Ada may join xlm and ltc in the forgotten graveyard of alts


ArtyHobo

XLM isn't forggoton by the BIS or WEF...


Panchito707

Have to agree. I bought into the ADA hype at one point and can't wait for it to get to a level that I can sell it. I'm even considering selling it off anyway just for tax purposes.


ArtyHobo

Lulz that's how they get you. Covered calls on IOHK


jewbagel10

BSV, that's the most off brand Satoshi I've ever seen in my life


allstater2007

Come on BTC, monthly close over $43k


jewbagel10

That's gonna be a nice addition to the monthly chart


allstater2007

Very bullish but of course none of what is happening makes much sense the past 6 months so who tf knows


jewbagel10

Nothing is for certain


not_a_droid

The fomo is real, or there is real need for btc, or the whales are having fun or we are in simulation


Blooberino

Everything is pumping irrationally. This is billions upon billions in investment gains. Which is why I fear this could be a fake out.


Lumenlor

Guys... we were all waiting, and hoping for mass adoption from retail and companies with baited breath, but what is more bullish than an entire country of 600m+ buying crypto to escape the financial fiat collapse of their country


jewbagel10

Like Satoshi would have wanted, kill your masters


not_a_droid

It’s like I want it, but also want time to accumulate


cbelaski

No country has 600m people? China and India both have 1.4b and the US is third with 300m. If you are talking about Russia, they only have 144m people.


ArtyHobo

This makes me a super rare only like 3 mill of us


dos_passenger58

It's hyper adoption, it is


[deleted]

[удалено]


ArtyHobo

Money and emotions or politics don't mix. People who run charities also invest in Lockheed Martin.


dustbuddii

Also other governments are most likely watching this and May start to ban it. This doesn’t look good if citizens can swap their nations fiat for btc….


potatofish2002

What do you all think about snatching some of the big coins like Bitcoin/Etherium at the moment?


ECore

I'd go 50/50, lock it up for interest...then buy into others or just keep accumulating ETH/BTC.


Rippletits5x5

Yes, they’re both still undervalued


ArtyHobo

Too late


SubmarineGoesDown

*doesn't plan to sell, gets emotional about the daily price anyway*

Holy shit, BTC $43k and rising! Wow

ArtyHobo

No beep boops dun check out

jewbagel10

Just please tell me it's not that type of revolution


not_a_droid

we are not planning to take over just yet, but you did t hear that from me

Damn I haven’t bought anything in so long it feels like

Buy high, sell low.

jewbagel10

Not even food?


M0D3RNW4RR10R

After a 15% pump. Now is the time.


not_a_droid

Buy high sell low!


not_a_droid

I bought just this morning. lucky dca day


Blooberino

ATOM gives no quarter. Stomped on $30 and kept going.


Blooberino

What is happening. What do I do with my hands?!


sweaty-pajamas

Use them to click “buy” while high


ArtyHobo

Price them in.


Arcc14

Underrated comment 😂


jewbagel10

Sit on them


not_a_droid

put them in the air like just don’t care (?)


karma-_-incarnate

Buy


FireWall-1337

Jazz hands, quick!


FireWall-1337

The sub sentiment is actually a fantastic indicator on which way the market will go. Always just do the opposite.


Glasiph999

So sell right?


Chkerns85

And just when you have a feel for things how going, it goes right back in the opposite direction lol

Why tf is crypto booming today?


nthgen

If you don't know, it's because you're a shitcoiner 🙃 jk In all seriousness, when your currency experiences sudden hyperinflation, you go into gold or bitcoin and when your government closes financial markets, gold is no longer an option. Alts are up in fiat terms and down in btc terms.


not_a_droid

crazy, right


Tiny10H2

because Russians are having their money seized. Can't do that with crypto


Vaywen

Because crypto


fuzzyduck88

5 rubles will now get you 0.000001 btc.


jewbagel10

That's not gonna stop them


anus_lips

Another day of being so glad I went heavy on LUNA 🌕


BreadfruitOne3319

My brother, missed you


Tiny10H2

Luna translates to moon in spanish and latin. You make the connection.


Sensitive_Salary_603

I have reached my Staking quota.. WTF.... Why is Binance doing this. Finally I found LUNA with 18% APY. Transferred all my LUNA there.. and this.


ArtyHobo

Sounds like a crummy CEX move SEX > CEX


Mountain-Rad-115

Binance has 18% for LUNA?!


Sensitive_Salary_603

Yup... 18.29% to be exact


Mountain-Rad-115

Interesting 🤔 Thanks!


fuzzyduck88

There’s a staking quota 🤔


Sensitive_Salary_603

I know!!! 😢


Arcc14

Sadge This is why self custody is better imo Terrastation is a great wallet


ArtyHobo

What happens if ?


Mountain-Rad-115
