Interview with Justin Vendetta, Founder of Verge Currency

Also, this past week we got to talk with Justin Vendetta, the pseudonymous Verge Currency founder. He shared with us some fun facts about the community, PornHub partnership, the whole crypto space, and even voiced some strong opinions:

ChangeHero: What do you think is stopping the people from using crypto?

Justin: Probably the talking heads on television, who fear crypto wrecking the inflationary fiat markets. People like Peter Schiff can’t stop talking about how bad bitcoin is, yet it continues to go up and prove him wrong.“

DeFi Cryptocurrency News

In the next section, we cover the cryptocurrency news and discussions that started on Twitter. However, Crypto Twitter generates so much content, it’s easy to get lost — we chose the best posts so you don’t have to.

Cryptocurrency News from Twitter

Analytics portal Santiment published an in-depth investigation of the decline of DeFi, which started this week. They bring up the point of the largest tokens like YFI or COMP suffering double digit losses. DeFi is a high-risk venture at the moment, and there is no “too large to fail” go-to product, so, as always, we encourage everyone to do their research!

Not exactly a tweet from the past week, but it was unearthed by Reddit just a few days ago, again. A time capsule of a legendary tweet, really.

Shane Lee Lindstrom, Canadian hip-hop producer, has joined the ranks of Bitcoin holders. Thanks for the exposure! Who knows, how many of his fans decided to consider it, too?

Influencer of the Week

Willy Woo is a crypto trader who stuck to fundamental on-chain analysis and was bullish on BTC even in the Crypto Winter. Their follower base comes up to 150 thousand.

In this week’s highlighted tweet, he claims fundamentals, such as demand/supply ratio, point to the price to be in “moon mode”, and the markets might react to it by 2021. Three months of 2020 left, plenty of time to stack some sats just in case.
