Unlocking Financial Freedom: Exploring Cryptocurrency Investments through AI and Macro Economics

Originally aired on July 13, 2023

Cryptocurrency investing and news.

Nick Black provides his commentary on the latest developments with Celsius Network and its former CEO Alex Mashinsky. He discusses how Mashinsky and Celsius made false claims about earning high interest rates through their services and engaged in risky lending practices, which led to the company’s bankruptcy. Nick criticizes Mashinsky and other key figures like Sam Bankman-Fried of FTX for being “scammy douchebags” who took advantage of investors.

The video then covers recent AI and tech news, including Shopify unveiling an AI assistant called Sidekick, Elon Musk launching a new AI company called X AI, Google’s new AI-powered note taking app, and advancements in voice cloning. This segues into market analysis, with Black predicting crypto markets will turn around in the next 200 days once recession tails off, and criticizing the poor performance and arrogance of the Algorand team.

A significant portion focuses on the legal troubles of Celsius and Mashinsky, including Celsius suing Alameda Research and FTX, while the SEC charged Mashinsky and Celsius with fraud. Black expresses satisfaction at Mashinsky’s reported arrest and emphasizes these executives need to face consequences for stealing people’s money. The video concludes with Black advising on taking profits, using an example of a gains harvesting strategy for percentage exits. He stresses the need to take money off the table and not just watch currency values fluctuate.
