I watched the entire 2+ hour documentary by Dan Olson (@FoldableHuman) that was posted to Fark just a few days ago....it was fascinating.

Olson interjects his negative opinion of crypto and NFTs throughout, he is undoubtedly a skeptic, but he explains in great detail the numerous failings and utter irrational nonsense that is crypto and NFTs.

I guess I'm saying, I too, want to scream into the void.

Grift, not just for rabid psychos!  Some of 'em have reallized the flowers and happiness and predestiny crowd is just as easy to bilk, without all that nasty completely destroying society thing.  Grifters with some elementary amount of social conscience as it were

"TikTok astrology crypto influencer" - a lot of fancy words for "unemployed".

Yes, I've been aware of her.  She was even in WaPo last spring.  Not surprisingly, her analysis always reveals that now is the perfect time to buy crypto.

This is really no different than the technical analysis you commonly read regarding stocks and always for crypto since there is no actual income statement, balance sheet, or projected growth to value.  Here's an example from today, and this is relatively calm for crypto technical analysis:

The world's largest cryptocurrency hit an intraday high of $38,415.90 on Wednesday, which is its highest level in the last six sessions.
Today's move comes as the 14-day RSI on BTC/USD broke out of its recent resistance level of 30, which typically signifies prices being oversold, and is now tracking at 38.


"Typically"  How typically?  40%?  80%?

Despite remaining relatively oversold, this short-term bullish momentum has led to the 10-day (red) EMA slowly curving out, with the potential for an upward cross with the 25-day (blue) EMA gradually increasing.

Check your red and blue EMAs before they get to the cross.  Make sure they're curving out.

If this were to occur, history shows that there could be increased buying pressure, as prices would likely break above the $40,000 ceiling. Which is an area where previous bull runs have started.

This isn't unique to crypto.  Technical analysis in a lot of ways just gives a bored financial media something to talk about.  So I'm not going to fault this woman for using astrology when Very Serious Men on CNBC are talking the same gibberish just in a more acceptable way.

The problem is that people expect unbiased analysis on something that is clearly fraud.  On one side of an "argument" you have people who have a financial stake in you swallowing their BS and buy, and on the other, you have not that.  A skeptic is not necessarily biased in their review of the information.  They are a skeptic because they don't believe a claim.  If you were talking about the Earth being round I would understand, but convincing you the earth is round is not literally paying me dividends.

All they would have to do for a great acronym is add "technician" to the end...

Damn. That's a profession that even people on the B Ark would point and laugh at.

Ok, fair enough, skeptic was the wrong word to use.

I just meant that he doesn't hide his opinion of crypto and NFTs, but that's in large part because he is explaining the many, many, many reasons why they are not good.

The lack of symmetry in that chart makes my brain cringe.  And that's not even taking into consideration the total horse crap it represents.

Well, it lines up well with my opinions "technical analysis. And really, isn't this all about reaffirming our preconceived" notions so we have someone else to blame for losing our shirts to some market or another?
