📊 Crypto portfolio update

Net return: 597.8%

Comments: The crypto market has been rallying relentlessly and people are starting to buy into the echo bubble thesis.

Given the recent parabolic price moves however, those on the sidelines are understandably hesitant about jumping in.

"There's going to be a pullback... right??"

So. Should one enter now and risk a major pullback, or worse... a continuation of the bear market?

Or should one wait for a pullback and risk missing out on a continuation of the bull move? After all, this is what happened during the 2019 echo bubble.

2019 echo bubble barely saw a pullback

The market is at a critical juncture and what you choose to do now will have major consequences for your portfolio performance over the next 6 months.

I alerted the private group 13 days ago and shared my thoughts and plans with them.


We are now preparing for the next big move which can happen any day now.

So if you've been thinking about joining us, now's the time to do it.

🏰 DeFi Kingdoms combat gameplay

The Knight, Priest and Warrior skills have been released and we now have a relatively good idea of what the combat gameplay will be like.

My thoughts:

The Good

  • The combat mechanics are deep and complex enough to be fun for various types of players
  • Skill mechanics are well designed and creatively themed to each hero class
  • Skill variety allows players to use each hero class in different ways/combos

The Bad

  • The combat design has a major issue/flaw
  • Given the irrational toxicity of DFK maxis (who apparently read my newsletters) however, I won't talk about it here
  • To the maxis, any criticism of DFK is considered "fudding" even when there's good evidence for it; They'd rather paint someone like me as the bad guy than re-examine the beliefs that decimated their portfolio. It baffles me how anyone can hold a token all the way down -90% and still insist their opinion is right AND attack those who had  earlier warned them 🤷
  • So while I can't stop the maxis from reading this newsletter, I can put my most valuable insights behind a paywall that keeps them out
  • If you want my unfiltered opinion/alpha (and my plans for DFK/Jewel), you can get them in the private group

Not to sound like a broken record but the crypto market is at a critical crossroads and anyone who picks the wrong path will be left behind.

Don't say I didn't warn ya.
