Who are the most hated scammers ever in the cryptocurrency industry?

Why on earth did FTX's exchange coin FTT pump 58% today and 274% since January 1st 2023? And why can FTT (and other trash like LUNC) still be traded op top exchanges?

Regulation is a good thing for crypto, as long as it's done reasonably.

Not really. Terra used an inflation/deflation mechanism to keep the peg of UST, playing with the supply of of both LUNA and UST. The risk of LUNA’s hyperinflation was always there if there was a run on UST because of that mechanism. My understanding of DJED is that it is a CDP like DAI/RAI overcollateralized by ADA as well as SHEN. Everyone here has been so nervous on new stablecoins since the Terra fiasco, and maybe rightfully so. But there really is a need for a decentralized stablecoin on these chains that is censorship-resistant and can’t be frozen by a central authority. Not every new stablecoin design is a scam, or prone to the same collapse as UST. I wish we would look at these new experiments with curiosity and intellectual vigor instead of dismissing them outright.

I kind of shilled LUNA shortly before the collapse. Im so glad i didnt shill it hard enough, cause the person i shilled it to didnt buy (thank god). Still got PTSD from that so i dont shill anything anymore. Maybe a little Ethereum, but thats more educating than shilling i may say.

WARREN BAD, CRYPTO GOOD. If anyone actually read the article, what she’s proposing, it’s cracking down on fraud by giving regulatory agencies more resources and examining cryptocurrency’s impact on the environment. These aren’t exactly controversial points considering many PoW things are massive uses of energy and the space is absolutely RIFE with projects that were either outright scams or took advantage of customers (FTX, LUNA, 3AC, voyager, Celsius, Nexo, etc.) However it’s much more easy to just regurgitate whatever nonsense gets upvotes around here.

Honestly the market downturn was a positive other than the crumbling of exchanges, LUNA(which I wasn't in) and SOL and ONE. Fortunately I had gotten in on SOL and ONE relatively early so rode them up and down but didn't take huge losses. This downturn let me a accumulate more ETH, BTC, DOT and get into Matic at a decent entry. I learned to embrace the opportunity and while I appreciate having higher fiat value in my bags, I don't plan on cashing out for a decade so I'm all about opportunity to buy more for cheap.

Even LUNA has more future

Being collateralized and being backed is the same thing. Collateral *is* what backs a stablecoin. LUNA was burned in order to mint UST. You cannot both burn an asset AND use it as collateral, since burned tokens no longer exist.

This sub is definitely full of "regards", alright!! The WSB rejects trying to bring their culture to the crypto (Bitcoin) movement... as when they began to merge, the two originally had similar intentions about proving how corrupt the system was. Now it's patently obvious -- there's no true intention around these parts of actually replacing the current monetary system, there's just a desire for more fiat!!!!! And yea, I was drooling over the LUNA/UST ecosystem myself. At one point, I thought I'd move like half of my BTC into LUNA because it seemed like Do Kwon actually solved something (fortunately, my faith in BTC being the safer long-term bet won out). Do Kwon had too much control, but greed can be very blinding. This is why Bitcoin's idea of trust minimization and security are paramount to everything else... along with its very CLEAR plan of inflation until long, long, long after we're all dead. There's no need to look for anything else. It's literally what money is in every way, even being pegged to the physical world thru energy consumption while also maintaining a stably decreasing rate of inflation. The Bitcoin Standard is the cure for so many broken systems. And crypto is just another broken system that "regards" use in hopes that it will allow them to exchange it real fast for a whole bunch of fiat.

Collateralized was the wrong word. It was backed by LUNA.

Mentions:#LUNA

>The critical difference is that the former uses external collateral, such as the ADA token in Djed’s case, which is unconnected to the stablecoin protocol. By contrast, the latter uses internal collateral, such as how Terra LUNA backed the UST stablecoin pre-collapse. It's backed by ADA. So a stable, backed by another crypto. I'll be staying away from this one myself.

I was the "hey if i would've bought bitcoin when it first came out" guy, when they at some cases just gave you BTC for joining their portal etc... so for a long time I did not even think about dealing anything with crypto. The whole world seemed too "big" to handle (all the different chains, tokens yada yada..." In start of 2022, I started to see that investing to stocks, startups and other opportunities to retail investors, is not enough for risk management, I went to see what crypto has to offer. Quickly I saw, that there is A LOT of people choosing 2 possibilities: ETH and BTC. In stock market, my portfolio consisted of 20-30 different stocks from different sectors etc. So my thought was - if i'm going to throw some cents into crypto, that is not proper risk management. I spent hours and hours during 3 months to go through different cryptos available, and found myself a list of 10 to try out. Keeping in mind, that there should be chains for different usecases, different princibles etc. I'm in a moment where I'm 66% up past 30 days (todays morning status), whereas BTC is up 33% and ETH ticks at 26%. I watched BTC going down hard while my own portfolio also went down during past year, but the loss was not as big, as some of the investments remained more or less stable. Watched the LUNA crash and FTT fiasco etc. **This is not "i did good, someone else didnt"**, what it is, is a story of risk management. The point of this story is - if anyone of you is a newcomer to this story then: \- Twitter is your enemy, if you allow it to be your enemy \- Youtube is your enemy, if you allow it to be your enemy *Same goes for reddit (although this subreddit has been extremely useful when filtering the information using some of my own principles.* Manage.

They sounds for sure more a safe investment than SHIB or others but as we seen with LUNA, FTX (acclaimed as safest, leanest, best CEX just few months ago) and so on, NO TOKEN IS SAFE. Let's take BTC for example: pollutes more than anything else with the energy that it needs. Where is written that government won't decide to istitutionalized it (they are already doing it or trying to do it), or to try to crash it. Probably ATM better to invest in holidays, health and so on.

LUNAC has one of the highest chances, I think. Massive community, and it's very driven. It's also doing better overall than LUNA, so it will likely carry the name forward (once the bad has been forgotten, and it will). LOOPRING is my other big odds winner, lot's to come for this project, and I think once they get the message timing right, we could drop into the top 10 overnight.

I don’t think BTC itself has been lost or corrupted by a centralized authority, I think it’s the biggest, unregulated investment opportunity out there that’s ripe for manipulation by deep pockets. Bitcoin still works as intended for sending very divisible payments to any address a user pleases and is open to anyone who can afford the mining costs, but difficulty and electricity prices have increased greatly over the years. Other sorts of governments and jurisdictions across the world are weighing in on regulations for cryptocurrency and bitcoin happens to be the oldest and most proven one. What happened with LUNA, FTX, 3AC is not synonymous with BTC but all of cryptocurrency ≈ BTC to outsiders and media bastardizes everything. Im not quite sure about store of value narrative. I know there’s a finite amount of BTC to ever exist, but that was more to combat inflation due to hyperinflation happening by other centralized currencies where fiat inherently devalues over time as it can be created/printed whenever a time called for it.

A lot of scams pump and dumps. As SQUID, SAFEMOON, FTT, LUNA, etc. investors.

#Terra Con-Arguments Below is an argument written by Shippior which won 1st place in the Terra Con-Arguments topic for a prior [Cointest](/r/CointestOfficial/wiki/cointest_policy) round. > Terra (Luna 2.0) with ticker [LUNA](https://coinmarketcap.com/nl/currencies/terra-luna-v2/) is the succesor of the original Terra, now rebranded as LUNA classic. Luna launched on the 27th of May 2022 amongst the chaos of the Terra bubble. In this bubble the stablecoin associated with the Terra ecosystem USTC (then UST) was depegged by several parties such that Terra and Bitcoin could be shorted as these would devaluate as a result of the the depeg. More about the collapse of Terra can be read [here](https://blog.chainalysis.com/reports/how-terrausd-collapsed/). > > Luna 2.0 was created (or rather much forked) by [Do Kwon](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Do_Kwon), the inventor of the Terra ecosystem without a link to a stablecoin to provide the benefits that Luna brought without the risks of an algorithmic stablecoin attached to it. It was approved by the majority by vote (65.5%) on [proposal 1623](https://cosmosrun.info/terra-classic/gov/1623). LUNA was airdropped to both pre-attack as well as post-attack stakers and holders of LUNA and UST at the time the Terra collapse started on several chains according to pre-determined ratios. Luna 2.0 is, just as its predecessor based on Tendermint SDK which is also used by the Cosmos Hub. > > The first major disadvantage is that investors have lost a lot of faith due to the first attack. Many people have lost a lot of money, Terra 2.0 was an attempt to recoup some of that loss but it was not enough and that leaves many people salty. Currently the market cap of Luna 2.0 is below that of Luna Classic (1.7B vs 400mil according to coingecko). The trust in the chain is also limited due to the fact the aforementioned creater, Do Kwon, is faced by [several lawsuits](https://cryptobriefing.com/terras-do-kwon-facing-yet-another-lawsuit/) started by investors who lost money during the crash. Even before the crash Do Kwon was often heralded by the crypto community because he claimed to be all knowing and was overconfident of his knowledge and the performance of Luna Classic to the point of arrogance [[1]](https://twitter.com/stablekwon/status/1509319412674797572) and [[2]](https://twitter.com/stablekwon/status/1512604793365180421). > > Many developers have left the Terra ecosystem for other ecosystems. The transition to the Cosmos ecosystem is relatively easy as they are both based on Tenderminst SDK.

Honestly, I don't think Genesis is another FTX. They are a sister company of Grayscale who are under extreme some extreme compliance regulations. Genesis is also the only what is called 'authorized participant' for Grayscale, meaning they are the only company allowed to manage Grayscale assets, and by extension are also under stringent regulations. I just think Genesis over-extended themselves when times were good and probably got caught up in the LUNA crash as well as for sure with the FTX crash.

Here's my thought. Retail investors gave up on crypto in 2022 for obvious reasons. Institutional investment firms sat on the sidelines probably since the collapse of LUNA/UST and subsequent big player falls if you were smart you did to. We saw a true bottom of BTC at $15.5k - 16k where support held for quite some time. During this period, we were all loading up and moving our assets off exchanges. Finally, when more bad news would hit the market, instead of another nose dive, BTC would dip slightly and then recover quickly. This happened whenever the fed would hike interest rates or whenever even bigger news like the collapse of FTX or most recently Genesis. This is a key marker. When the assets price doesn't dive on the usual market moving news, that's when you're at the bottom. Most recently we've seen a positive tend over the past 2 - 2.5 weeks. Now the institutional players are re-entering.

Mentions:#LUNA

With the caveat that no one knows shit about fuck, and that I'm NOT saying that the bear market is over or that we can't still go lower: I think we're seeing a natural rebound from the dumps caused by LUNA, FTX, etc. As a general rule, if there's a big pump, there's a pullback; and if there's a big dump, there's a recovery. The negative effects of LUNA, FTX etc. were amplified by the broader context of the "rightful" crypto market correction after the 2021 bubble, and by the ongoing macroeconomic turbulence that's affecting all markets. But fundamentally, LUNA, FTX etc. were sudden, shocking events that caused panic sell-offs, yet which, once over, are unlikely to leave a lasting mark (I mean in terms of crypto's core value proposition; no offense intended against those who lost money in the collapses). In other words, perhaps $10K of the dumpage we experienced was caused by exactly the sorts of events from which you'd expect a rebound, which hadn't yet happened. So my feeling is that we were oversold to begin with, and this is a natural return to closer to the "true" market--which is obviously still way below 2021 levels, as you'd expect given that a new speculative cycle has yet to begin, and given that the macroeconomic situation remains uncertain. I wouldn't be surprised if we see more crabbing until the macro improves and the prevailing anti-crypto narrative fades, but a $5-10K rebound from the bottom seems pretty reasonable here IMO.
