Crypto Bros Get Owned

Step 1, get great Crypto Idea from the Twitter-verse. Make sure the coin has a high-tech name like "CumInMyAssCoin"

Step 2, do some basic fundamental analysis on the strength of the coin and set a price target. In this case, the thesis is "It's going to 30x bro, trust me, the APY is just so high bro"

Step 3, establish a catalyst that will give you some positive price action. Share with your Bros on WSO so they can "ape" in with you and get ultra rich on this new paradigm

step 4, watch the profits roll in and celebrate with your bros. Sometimes the price goes down, but it's all good. Just be sure to sell before the price goes down and you're all good.

Did you really go this far taking screenshots of a 1 out of 1000 unsuccessful project and making a thread to try and console yourself about not being in crypto and watching dipshits who are less "qualified" than you make your entire salary in their sleep? You shouldn't cope like this.

Don't know about OP, but I actually personal kneel down and offer a person a blowjob if they say their a crypto investor. I may not have their intelligence or work ethic or their ability to ascend humanity, but at least I can suck the dick of the gods of the "New World Order".

Funny how you ignore that he also told everyone about TIME way before the hype and you have made almost 2x in just two weeks. FTM was also given that went 5x the last few months. People on this forum will do anything to convince themselves that they're not missing out. I used to be like this too ngl I was miserable before. Anyway to all those who wanna sling MS that's fine you're ngmi, enjoy the office bright and early on Monday.

FYI for any one that actually understands: 3AC and whales have just DCA'd down. You're getting a higher APY now on rebases. Wasn't a rug just a failed breach on the MEV side of AVAX. It's DeFi at the end of the day things are experimental but everyone will be back in profit in a month. Find it interesting how desperate some are to try and prove against crypto or any alternative to having back surgery in your 30s from slaving away 16 hours a day.

I didn't own this and am not sure if I'm following right. But I'm pretty sure SB acts a bit like a bond. The APY went up drastically and is now over 1 million %. I don't think this forum understands the project. Probably better examples of people getting owned.

yep. and I bet it's just a paid bot who has nothing to do with IB. they infiltrate all sorts of forums and social media. and WSO is ideal because 1) you have young people with money here, 2) you can post anonymously and create an illusion of multiple people participating in a discussion, ask and answer your own questions with multiple accounts posting anonymously so nobody can trace (like when he pretended to have a dialog: -how can somebody invest in crypto? -just because you asked I'll tell you).

How many boomers use this forum holy shit. This is like having your brokerage account at vanguard hacked and then blaming apple because it's all the stock you held. Their private dex used for the buyback was front run by someone. That's the risk of DeFi. All technology have issues like that when first starting out. Has nothing to do with the project itself or it's validity.

So I am a big fan of crypto and am in some of the projects you named here, but if you're not a troll or a shill why don't you go off anonymous and answer peoples' questions without insulting them? Honestly, calling people NPCs, boomers, and NGMI, doesn't do anything for broader crypto adoption. If you actually care about growing the crypto pie and mainstream adoption (which btw will benefit you a lot assuming you're as invested as you say you are), then having well laid out arguments and treating people w/ respect will get you a lot farther than constant name calling…

The perpetual cycle of 'crypto bros' getting rugged on projects they're well aware are high-risk ponzis -- while traditional finance bros shit on cherrypicked, experimental projects in the space as a method of coping with the 100x+ returns they've missed out on -- continues.

Can we please do something about these pump-and-dump bot accounts? It's only a matter of time before someone follows this guy's advice and gets burned.

Nov 28, 2021 - 6:15pm

Yeah cause Wall Street cares so much about protecting investors. Ever heard of Goldman shorting subprime mortgages in the ABX index while they were telling their clients to buy? 

Nov 28, 2021 - 3:24pm

Can we please ban anonymous accounts in the investing section?  It cleaned up many of the trolls from the off topic.

What about Bitcoin / Ethereum? These are clear established coins that are doing well. They aren't pump and dump and are already a burgeoning asset class. I think if there is legitimate analysis done, talking about market share, ratios market cap / tvl, smart defi projects happening, utility cases, these posts should be allowed. If it is just some wall street bets lingo like "buy this shit it will moon 10x" then sure ban those types of posts. Crypto as an asset class is here to stay.

If you get rug pulled on a crypto project then that's because of shoddy research. If you actually do you research not only on the Market Cap + twitter followers but also on the team, their tech, the project, tokenomics, road maps, how they have stuck to their road maps and as well as go through their documentation thoroughly the chances of getting rug pulled is basically nil. 

Also just because a project is audited by Certik or Reg Doctor does not mean that they are safe. may be you wont get hit by a hard rug pull but soft rug pulls are a definite possibility. This is especially true of Defi projects in the farm yielding space. No you will not get 32000% APR on a project that is safe. Such a high rate literally means you will lose your money given the risk is super high. Its better to use known liquidity pool providers for solid projects to go yield farming (eg Harmony on Sushi Swap 4 months ago).

However, the flipside to all this is, if you're remotely interested in cryptro and willing to do the grunt work (takes about 1-2 weeks to research a project depending on your level of technical knowledge) you can find hidden gems.

ok do share your current buys, I will get in and if they moon will send you 5% of the value back.

There's your crypto risk premium. Trying to cut through all the hysterics, I still think risk/reward of intelligently placed crypto bets outweighs putting your money in the S&P 500. No one is pretending that crypto is risk free, but to anyone wondering why it's possible to make 10-100x on any given coin, it's because its absolutely incredibly fucking risky (wallet hacks, protocol hacks/exploit, outright scams/rugs, regulation, etc.). The existence of these things and the perceived difficulty of engaging on-chain is why these potential returns exist.

It's just mark-to-market VC investing for retail IMO. 50% of your bets will go to 0, 40% might 2x, and 10% might 10x (or higher) - giving you a +EV outcome even if you get hit by scams/hacks. Like all investing, portfolio allocation and emotion management is key.
