Thanks to everyone who gave us feedback on the UI/UX of our opinion pieces. 1) The "Op-Ed" section is now the "Opinion" section 2) There is now a red "Opinion" label Small updates but should help as we publish more controversial pieces.

This pod with @kylesamani and @santiagoroel is now live on Empire. We covered why MEV is the only metric that matters, how to value crypto assets, and how to think about the cost of airdrops. Great chat.

Tried sending a wire. Bank #1 is down. Bank #2 flagged the wire as an AML concern, I'm currently on an hour long call convincing them that I should be allowed to send the wire. Insanity, crypto truly does solve this.

Stripe supports crypto again! John Collison: “Crypto is finding real utility. With txn speeds increasing and costs coming down, we’re seeing crypto finally making sense as a means of exchange.” Big step forward for crypto x payments. https://blockworks.co/news/stripe-to-bring-back-crypto-payments

Two SEC lawyers just resigned after a judge sanctioned them for gross abuse of power in a crypto case. The SEC's lawsuit was "marred by false statements and misrepresentations, as well as a lack of evidence." Gary G hanging on by a thread these days.

I’m buying today, doubling down on my favorites. Majors + memes We probably go lower but I’m not in the game of timing local bottoms.

Big development. Uniswap Labs expanded fees to all swaps through the UI and wallet (except stablecoin pairs and WETH wraps/unwraps) + increased the fee from 0.15% to 0.25%. https://x.com/smyyguy/status/1779177146029601164

The SEC is pushing the best founders offshore. Hayden built Uniswap from Brooklyn. The US government is now telling future Haydens to go build in Dubai or Singapore. This has to change soon or we'll crush innovation for years.
