#Crypto.com(CRO) Pro-Arguments Below is an argument written by IAmGiff which won 1st place in the Crypto.com(CRO) Pro-Arguments topic for a prior [Cointest](/r/CointestOfficial/wiki/cointest_policy) round. > CRO or Crypto.com coin is the native currency of the Crypto.com app, exchange and blockchain. At time of writing, it’s [\#17 by market cap](https://coinmarketcap.com/). > > To begin, the coin is inextricably linked to the fate of the parent company (which is officially named Foris DAX MT (Malta) Limited and was founded in 2016). The coin’s primary purpose is to support the company’s various initiatives, and the success of those initiatives is what would drive adoption of the coin. For the purposes of pros and cons, I don’t think it’s necessary to make sharp distinctions between the coin and the company. > > **Pros** > > I’ll start with three priority areas outlined in their whitepaper: payments, trading and financial services. In [their own words](https://crypto.com/images/crypto_com_whitepaper.pdf): *“Our strategy is to leverage* ***payment solutions as the primary tool for driving adoption and user acquisition****, while building* ***trading and financial services solutions as the major sources of revenue****.”* > > **Real-world payments** > > The company has two major crypto-related payment initiatives. One is a Venmo-like **Crypto.Com Pay** feature. For merchants, the payment system offers lower transaction costs than typical interchange fees and instant settlement. For consumers, there’s a strong “cashback” program. (Despite the potential, it’s unclear how much uptake there is at this point.) > > The **Visa pre-paid debit cards** are becoming fairly ubiquitous. In the U.S., these are issued by Metropolitan Commercial Bank (a New York State chartered bank & member FDIC). They offer some of the best rewards of any card on the market. There’s a tier system, progressively requiring higher investments in CRO to get to higher tiers, that people seem to find motivating. Many people love the design. There’s lots of information about how they work so I won’t repeat it here. Key point is they're indeed popular. > > The most important point (that’s often oddly missed in this discussion) is the cards give you a fast and efficient crypto offramp. Some cryptos can be loaded directly onto the card. Others you have to take the 3-second step of converting to USD or a stablecoin and then loading the card. Either way, you can start with crypto and buy almost anything IRL in a few seconds. > > **Trading** > > In many countries, crypto.com is a full-service **exchange**. In the US (where I’m based) it’s only an app for now although there are plans to open a full exchange eventually. The exchange is ranked #9 by [Coinmarketcap](https://coinmarketcap.com/rankings/exchanges/) although it’s ranked as high as #4 by [Coingecko’s methodology](https://www.coingecko.com/en/exchanges). Recently their spot market volumes are about 20-25% those of Binance but about 80-90% those of Coinbase. (They are a smaller player for now in derivatives, although that could change if they were able to tap the US market.) They support slightly more cryptos than Coinbase, although nowhere near as many as Binance. The fees are apparently cheaper if paid in CRO, which is a driver of utilization. I can't try it out yet myself. > > The **app** is a limited experience but easy to use. If you set-up an ACH push to fund your account there’s no fee to load money onto the app, and card fees are also waived for your first month. Long enough to get many new users hooked. (Although it appears there’s no fees to buying the crypto, there’s in fact an opaque and variable spread fee; more on this in my cons post). If you’re just trying to buy and hodl crypto on an exchange, spread won’t kill you. If you want a gentle introduction to buying your first $100 of Bitcoin, this will work well enough. At the moment I just checked, you’d get $99.6 of Bitcoin for your $100, so that's 0.4% in spread. > > **Financial Services** > > Their **Crypto Earn** and **DeFi wallet** programs are attractive for new crypto users, and allow users to progressively pursue more complicated investing strategies. Crypto Earn is the custodial option on the app, which offers a simple way to earn fairly high interest rates on many coins. > > Their DeFi wallet is a more advanced non-custodial option, with the ability to contribute to CRO validator’s staking, or to participate in liquidity pools. (There’s also a lending program but I’m not familiar with it.) > > ***In sum***, the crypto.com financial ecosystem is not 100% there yet (especially with no US exchange), but it’s the closest thing I’ve seen to a full-service crypto-based financial services provider, and you can imagine a not-too-distant future where, for some people, the company’s offerings would be complete enough that you could ditch your bank entirely without jumping through enormous hoops. In this world, of course, there’s lots of reasons people will be buying CRO. > > **Marketing** > > Many people are very hyped that Crypto.com does a lot of marketing which should benefit CRO and perhaps cryptocurrency in general. You may have heard there's a Matt Damon commercial and a basketball arena in LA. I'm aware Cointest rules say not to focus on marketing, so I'll just make a quick observation. I’ve seen some people say, “oh this is just hype etc.” but if you look at the traditional asset management space, Charles Schwab has a market capitalization of like $170 billion and the primary differentiator between it and other asset managers is really just that Charles Schwab carpetbombs the airwaves with marketing. Marketing does matter in consumer financial services. > > Cointest rules say not to base arguments on price either (Charles Schwab's market cap is NOT a price prediction btw, sorry y'all!) but it’s also relevant to briefly note here that CRO’s marketcap is about 1/6th of BNB’s, so many people believe there’s still upside to this set of observations. > > **Regulation & Security** > > Crypto.com advertises that it works hard to comply with regulation. As a publicly-traded company, so does Coinbase, of course, but the regulatory-compliant approach is quite a contrast to Binance, for example. [Crypto.com](https://Crypto.com) claims to be the first crypto company to have various levels of ISO compliance, [https://crypto.com/images/crypto\_com\_whitepaper.pdf](https://crypto.com/images/crypto_com_whitepaper.pdf), etc. Philosophical arguments about regulation aside, the relevance to CRO is I think it’s fair to say these efforts at compliance probably reduce (but don’t eliminate) the risk of countries swooping in and hammering the exchange or the coin. > > **CRO technical details & tokenomics** > > There were originally 100 billion CRO, but [70 billion were burned](https://blog.crypto.com/70-billion-cro-to-be-burned/). Most people expect the 30 billion supply to continue in the future. There’s currently about 25 billion circulating with the remainder primarily being distributed overtime as validator rewards. These rewards encourage decentralization of the network by giving people an incentive to act as validators. Some people see that as a philosophical plus, but this is still a coin that's very dependent on the company. > > Although the supply is fixed at 30 billion, it’s worth noting that even in the absence of future burns, the supply on the market could fluctuate considerably if the company built up or ran down its holdings. > > Another factor that some consider favorable is that the Visa cards require people to make progressively larger 6-month stakes for higher tier cards (and keep the stakes to retain the card benefits). Therefore, if the number of cardholders increases, an increasing amount of CRO is tied up and unavailable to be dumped. > > CRO successfully migrated from ERC20 to the Crypto.org Chain Mainnet earlier this year. The company has also very recently launched the [Cronos Chain](https://cronos.crypto.org/docs/chain-details/introduction.html) which is compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine and is thus an option for developers to connect Crypto.com users to Ethereum projects and apps and so on. This is interesting to follow, though I think the main reason to invest in CRO for now is if you believe in the company’s vision for executing its financial services offerings. > > **Betting on the sector** > > Finally, there’s a philosophy behind betting on CRO that’s worth mentioning. With apologies to everyone with WAGMI tattoos, there’s over 16,000 cryptos tracked by CoinMarketCap. It’s very difficult to imagine that the majority of these will thrive in the long-term. Some will fade away, new (and often better) ones might arise, etc. > > When you bet on an exchange coin you’re partially placing a bet that demand for buying and trading crypto will continue (at that exchange), but you can be otherwise agnostic on which individual technologies and coins are the best. What’s the best chain for dApps? I have no clue. But I think we’re likely to have dApps in the future and people will want to trade the related currencies and use their crypto. So a nice way to bet on this agnostic view is to invest in exchanges, rather than trying to guess which projects are best. > > **Disclosures:** I’m an Indigo card holder, but don’t hold CRO other than for the stake. I’m personally bullish on cro but I have a lot of cons about it too. ***** Would you like to learn more?

The same can be said about non-crypto boys. In LA the guys that rose to fame as Obama’s bundlers ended up being charged with millions of stolen money. Possibly even involved in a missing persons case. The Culver City townhouse in question was listed as the company office of Camden Capital Partners, the firm owned by Sugarman that’s at the center of the seven-year SEC investigation into the alleged scam that prosecutors say he committed with a coterie of other Wall Street hucksters. This group includes Jason Galanis, an Angeleno whom Forbes once dubbed “Porn’s New King” thanks to his billing service for pornographic websites, and Devon Archer, who is Hunter Biden’s former business partner. Sugarman is accused by federal officials of lining his pockets with $9 million from the alleged scheme. Galanis pleaded guilty to securities fraud and is currently serving 15 years in a minimum-security prison in San Pedro where his father, another Wall Street criminal, is also serving a sentence in a separate building. Both men are listed by the government in an SEC court filing as among the 120 witnesses who have “discoverable information” about Sugarman’s alleged role in the fraud. Archer was sentenced in February to 366 days in federal prison, ordered to forfeit $15,700,513 and to make restitution in the amount of $43,427,436, according to the Department of Justice. He is also listed as a witness in the Sugarman case to what the SEC calls the “scheme to misappropriate” bonds from the Wakpamni tribe. https://www.lamag.com/citythinkblog/missing-mom-heidi-plancks-case-may-now-be-lapd-homicide-probe-lawyer/ The comment on the possible killing of the 39-year-old, who mysteriously vanished in October, came from Securities and Exchange Commission lawyer Nancy Brown in a court hearing for Jason Sugarman, a minority owner of the Los Angeles Football Club and the son-in-law of the Los Angeles Dodgers owner and Hollywood mogul, Peter Guber. Sugarman was charged in a June 26 SEC complaint in connection with an elaborate scheme he allegedly participated in with others to bilk the Wakpamni Lake Community Corp., a Native American tribal corporation, into issuing $60 million worth of bonds. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-nemazee-charges-idUSTRE58K5A420090921 https://www.nationalreview.com/the-feed/chicago-potomac-obama-bundler-accused-fraud-greg-pollowitz/

It really depends on the lifestyle and location. Assuming it’s someone in the US most people aren’t spending more than 4k a month so having a 1.5 million dollar retirement goal makes sense for 90% of the people who aren’t concentrated in cities like SF, LA, NYC, Miami etc. I live in Texas and all my bills added up are less than 4k a month even with the increased costs due to inflation these past couple of years. When I lived in California I still spent less than 4k a month I just had an apartment instead of a house. Lived in Virginia and same thing never spent more than 4k in a single month for standard bills. People are just bad at budgeting and overestimate costs of goods and living to have a “good life”

Anecdoctally I’ll tell you this right now 1/3 of LA is not making everyday purchases with crypto. Most these countries are still totally cash based. Two of those studies clash so far outside standard deviation that they are useless. Two say 4% (which id say is close in maybe America but not globally and even then lots came in, many of those have dropped out) buy finder says 14%? Sorry, honestly most the information is actually good but some of the studies listed where so ridiculous I barely even skimmed the rest until just now.

Mentions:#LA

A price is only reasonable if there are consumers within the immediate market whose actions (purchases for lack of a better term) reflect that they agree it’s reasonable. A landlord in LA, California might say “$9k/month utilities not included is reasonable for this studio apartment” and that price is considered “reasonable” (from a market standpoint, obviously as of late there has been vocalization from consumers that it is *not* reasonable) because there are consumers who will rent it out. A loan officer out in the sticks of Iowa that says “I think a $3500/month mortgage for this two bed two bath home is reasonable” and it is because there are consumers who will seek to buy the product. Based on your logic, it is reasonable only because the landlord says so. But that LA landlord isn’t expanding and trying to finance the construction of an apartment complex out in Iowa where it’s studio apartments for $9k/month. Why would that be the case since it’s a reasonable price? Because the producer, much like the consumer as well, is not responsible for sole determination of a reasonable price. Obviously there’s more nuance to this concept and housing is a different product than many others because a landlord *does* have more leverage in pricing than say Apple; having a roof over your head is obviously more important than the new iPhone. However, you could argue that a landlord upping rent for the sake of increased margins is *not* a reasonable price despite what consumer actions may suggest, having disproportionately high rent is often unsustainable because it would price out an increasing pool of consumers, and lose consumers who can no longer afford the rent. Also, from a pure logic standpoint, you’re wrong again. A landlord is the sole party deciding if a price is reasonable. You don’t think they would act in self-interest over fairness? The same can be said if a consumer was the one of control; they would likely pitch a very low rent which is unreasonable but prudent. It’s almost like there’s a reason that regional and tiered pricing is practiced by nearly every company on earth that can afford to do so: a “reasonable” price is subject to a litany of different factors, and the driving force of which is most definitely if there would even be consumers interested at that price point.

I was once a guest host on what was Japan's most popular variety TV show at the time "Sekai No Hatemade Ite Q". We filmed in LA & I expected the crew to come rolling out with a pimped out production. Turns out for this project they had a grand total of 6 crew with cameras that were a decade old & still using MiniDV tapes. My camera for my YouTube productions was actually much more advanced. So their top show was using cameras that would've at best been sitting on the shelf at a local community college for students to rent for assignments. Which was mind blowing to me at the time because Japan houses most of the top camera manufacturers in the world. Canon, Fuji, Panasonic, Sony; all Japanese companies. But they took REALLY good care of that gear. The used it effectively & efficiently and the segment they produced was fun and still told a story well. Was an interesting contrast of mindsets from most of the productions I had worked with where new tech was constantly at the forefront of productions & a camera usually had a shelf life of 2-3 years before becoming a hand-me-down. Just interesting because the mindset was more "why fix what isn't broke" than "oh awesome new shiny toy", which admittedly is still my approach.

Travelling using private jets by extremely wealthy individuals who choose that means of travel because it is convenient is coherently different to an average person that decides to purchase beef on the odd occasion for food. Take a look at Elon Musk's journeys for example. It goes back and forth between two destinations in LA. A journey that takes less than 30 mins by plane, and would take a couple of hours by car. That's without commenting about how tech can be used to communicate remotely, making many of those journeys irrelevant, anyway. The person who responded to me implied those that "eat meat" are being hypercritical because meat is more damaging on a global scale. Can you not see the fault in this statement? An individual who chooses to eat beef does not cause the same amount of damage as another individual who travels by private jet. That also doesn't account for these individuals being meat eaters, anyway. So, no. On a one-to-one comparison I do not agree with his statement. Meat consumption, particularly beef, is damaging to the environment, but the reason it is so damaging is due to how many participate in eating beef globally. There are vastly less people who are wealthy enough to travel by private jet, and those individuals cause far more damage on a one-to-one comparison basis. As for beef itself, I eat is once every two weeks, if that. It is expensive, but enjoyable and it has nutritional value. Sure there are other more environmentally friendly forms of food, but you are not going to get people to stop eating it. That's why it is better to educate people in reducing their intake instead of trying to force people to stop eating it. > Food and beef aren’t interchangeable in that analogy. Yes they are. > We don’t need to produce and eat a ton beef to survive We don't need to do a ton of things in order to survive. > More importantly, people in low income environments who can’t be picky about what food is on the table aren’t consuming a huge amount of beef. There are a ton of things less wealthy can't do compared to those that are wealthy. This is a loose and poorly written statement. > It’s not like that is the reason why we need to keep producing a lot of beef. Yet people widely consume beef and have done for thousands of years. If you think it's achievable to stop people consuming beef globally then you've set yourself up for failure. It is not going to happen.
