Bitcoin's Movement Within Established Ranges

Bitcoin experienced a correction approximately in line with its typical cycle corrections, around 20%. Currently, it remains rangebound, indicating uncertainty in short-term direction despite a stable long-term trend. The critical levels to watch are $59,173 for the range low and $73,757 for the new all-time high. A definitive break and hold above or below these levels could dictate Bitcoin’s next significant movement. This rangebound market condition may offer short-term trading opportunities, but it's crucial to differentiate strategies between short-term trading and long-term portfolio management.

Ethereum and the Altcoin Market Dynamics

ETH/BTC has now closed below the critical 0.049 level for the second consecutive week, keeping this threshold in sharp focus. Should Ethereum fail to reclaim this level, the next critical point to watch is the current cycle low at 0.0462. A breach here could precipitate further declines, emphasizing the importance of this lower range in upcoming analyses.

The broader altcoin market, represented by $OTHERS, though recovering about 20% from recent lows, remains 17% down from its cycle highs. The market's volatility suggests considerable upside potential, but also significant risk. The direction Bitcoin takes in the coming months will likely influence whether altcoins can surpass their cycle highs, or see a continued drawdown. In order for most alts to take out their cycle highs they typically would follow after Bitcoin’s lead in achieving new ATHs.

Traditional Markets and Economic Concerns

The S&P 500 continues to test the pivotal $5,000 level, with sustained daily closes below this mark potentially indicating further pullbacks. Gold, meanwhile, has retreated but is approaching a potential support level at $2,320.

As the recession narrative regains prominence, heightened fears are likely to impact banks and businesses, potentially leading to reduced sales, layoffs, and closures. This climate of tightening economic conditions requires close monitoring of economic data that could precipitate a broader downturn.

Navigating a Complex Landscape

With escalating global tensions and the resurgence of recession fears, the investment landscape remains fraught with challenges. The potential for substantial rewards exists, but so does the risk of significant losses. Investors should continue to assess risk carefully, maintaining preparedness for adverse scenarios while exploring the opportunities presented by market volatility.

This week's market behaviour underscores the need for vigilance and strategic agility in navigating an increasingly unpredictable global economic environment.


Dew is the leading Polygon NFT marketplace with a $10m raise and the backing of Polygon Labs and more. I personally think this airdrop is under the radar as there is a small amount of wallets that are farming.

To farm this airdrop it is pretty simple:

Buying & Selling - Building volume by buying and selling NFTs regularly will gain you more points.

Listing & Bidding - Keeping your NFT within the top listings and keeping your bids (collection and singular) within the top bids will gain you points.

There are a few extra steps you could take that would multiply your points:

Dew Domain Name - Having a domain name acts as a referral, if you have a letter that someone else has added to their name then you will get a percentage of the points they farm. For example if you have a.dew and someone has arabi.dew then you will be eligible for a percentage of their points.

Dew Genesis Pass - Along with other utilities, owning a genesis pass will increase the points youre farming by 150%.

Other airdrops I am looking at…

Liquidium is the first Ordinal lending platform on Bitcoin. In order to be eligible all you need to do is Borrow against your Ordinal and Lend your Bitcoin into pools.


Web3 teams are just Web2 teams, with funnier tweets.

As we remain in this cesspool of a space, we spot the irrational similarities to our shed corporate bondage. The same old same old business practices of profit over everything. Web3 teams branded us "Participants, not consumers" they told us we were co creating...and yet the fiduciary duties between partners you'd expect don't seem to be present.

What makes a team "Web3 native", what do we use to define a web3 native builder vs a web2 business man. These fancy terms and labels tweeted out and used to represent KOLs in the space are interesting to say the least. Every known web3 builder began with prev. [Insert web2 tech giant/communication enterprise here].

We expect them to have changed, to be more so about the movement, and decentralization of the world. But we forget them to be advantageous, charismatic, business people. They are here to utilize the tech/social benefits of web3 to build out a business model, which at first we hated. As royalties faded, and the bear market set in, we began to praise "irl business models" , something we thought would make the difference between the survival and death of our favourite brands (our bags).

When a project says they have given their community the "tools" to build, what does that mean? What have they actually given? When they say we are community focused...community first, what does that mean?

Web2 teams make money for their shareholders...Web3 teams have no shareholders, they make money to continue making money. Will their money making ventures raise your floor price/line your pockets? Yes, perhaps they will, and perhaps not. So what truly makes them web3?

Spending time with your community, engaging in conversation. This does not equate to any significant change to what a web2 ceo would do...Shareholders meetings, private calls with large investors of significant influence, local union events, company picnics, corporate retreats. These feel and sound a lot like discord chats, whale group/subcommunity calls, community events, spaces, and twitter gc conversations to me...

I believe those buildings for the greater good are mostly unrecognized, due to floor price/profitability of their endeavours, instead builders use their foundation to create profitable things...like the man who named the street sign, they are forgotten.

Most of the projects we are a part of, are just wolves in sheeps clothing, pretending to be aligned with their consumers/ambassadors who they call a community and rely on to fund their success.

Find something you believe in, understand why you believe in it...fight for that.


Guy Oseary: From Music Mogul to NFT Influencer

Guy Oseary is a name synonymous with innovation and foresight in the entertainment industry. Oseary, a well-known music manager and businessman, has done a great deal to bridge the gap between technology and entertainment, especially with regard to NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens).

Over the course of his decades-long career, Guy Oseary has managed some of the biggest names in the music business, such as Madonna and U2. Both artists and industry insiders regard him as a trustworthy figure due to his excellent talent detection skills and his adeptness in navigating the constantly changing entertainment landscape.

Using a calculated risk, Oseary entered the NFT market by introducing famous people to the emerging industry. One of his most notable successes was his collaboration with Madonna, where he helped the iconic artist tokenize her works and engage directly with her fans through NFTs made by none other than Beeple. This move not only showcased Madonna's innovative spirit but also highlighted Oseary's vision for the future of digital ownership and engagement.

Oseary's influence goes beyond just Madonna. As the manager of also global superstar Justin Bieber, Oseary most likely played a pivotal role in introducing Bieber to the world of NFTs. This strategic move not only garnered attention within the NFT community but also solidified Oseary's reputation as a trendsetter in the industry.

In addition to his work with individual artists, Oseary has also been involved in larger NFT projects, such as World of Women. Oseary's role likely includes providing strategic advice, leveraging his connections in the entertainment industry to promote WoW, and guiding its overall growth and success. His partnership with WoW underscores his commitment to supporting innovative projects in the NFT space and further solidifies his position as a key figure in shaping NFT culture.

Guy Oseary's impact on the NFT space cannot be overstated. His ability to identify trends, his knack for bringing celebrities into the fold, and his overall vision for the future of digital ownership have positioned him as a key figure in shaping the future of NFTs and their impact on popular culture. As the NFT landscape continues to evolve, Guy Oseary stands out as a visionary whose influence will undoubtedly leave a lasting legacy.
