What a week

What a week that was last week! Wallets have bled. Two major events caused a big drop in the market. First, we had Mt. Gox FUD, which shook Bitcoin a bit. 

But then Germany and America popped in and dumped on us. Mt. Gox started its repayments shortly after that. Of course markets would react negatively to things like these.

It’s natural, says Arthur.  The Fear & Greed Index dropped to levels we haven’t seen since like January 2023. 

Investors have and are continuing to feel the heat, especially those playing with leverage. Recent gains have been wiped out, leaving many to reassess their investment strategies. 

Fourth of July plans were overshadowed by the market’s red candles. Justin Sun, the founder of TRON, offered to buy off all of Germany’s Bitcoins so he can take some of the heat off.

Buy the Bitcoin dip

Per Arthur’s observation, the market’s reaction has been a mix of fear and opportunism. He points out that while Bitcoin and the Nasdaq 100 moved together for a while, the crypto diva has found it impossible to keep up recently.

As the BRICS bunch are doing everything in their power to move us to a multipolar global economy, Arthur thinks the need for government funding through repression and fiat printing will definitely continue.

This, plus the global conflicts happening every other month is only gonna drive inflation further. And you know who benefits the most from hyperinflation? 


In his essay “Zoom Out,” from July 1st, Arthur dropped a quick investment advice for the current cycle. He said:

“If you believe in the system but not its leaders, invest in stocks. If you believe in the system and its leaders, invest in government bonds. If you believe in neither, invest in gold or Bitcoin.”

He did add, though, that stocks definitely need a strong state for them to hold value. But Bitcoin does not rely on any state.

Meanwhile, the bears have dominated Bitcoin’s market. Nearly every single technical indicator has turned bearish, clearly pointing to a consolidation phase. But Arthur believes it’s gonna be a while before we see Bitcoin in an actual bear market.

Institutional and retail adoption are at an all-time high and the largest crypto economy in the world could have a Bitcoin-friendly president before the year is over. The bears are just not powerful enough.
