I've had a mix of both. During the last bull run, I held LUNA too long. I sold AVAX too early.

Mentions:#LUNA#AVAX

I feel you bro. That's a tough one losing out to LUNA. That was a savage crash. Fuck the 401k idea and being a sheep being trapped within the system that is designed to keep us poor. Crypto is the way and tbh memecoins have been running the show for the past few months. I bought into HEGE early on and it has been one of the best decisions I made. I'm basically all in on it now because the rest of the crypto market is taking a shit but this thing just keeps on holding up. The community has been growing and there's tons of stuff happening like a CEX listing next week. Dude, if this thing does a 10x that's 74m mc. This could easily do 50x at this rate based on shittier memecoins going over 300m mc. IF you're going to throw money at a meme, best to make sure it's not going to be one that rugs or slow scams into oblivion. HEGE is a safe bet.

Contrary to LUNA, that Tatoo is doing fine.

>It's still legal for the them to approve the ETF without specifically recognizing ETH as a commodity. Ahem... A "commodity" (for the purposes of commodities regulation in the US) is defined as a thing for which a contract for future delivery exists. For example, every deposit of ETH (and every other crypto) on Coinbase is an asset for which there is a contract for future delivery - specifically, the Coinbase terms of service. ETH is already a commodity. So is every other crypto traded on any custodial exchange. There's no "recognizing" about it. It either is, or it isn't. There are some commodities that are not securities. Soybeans, for example. Or, as already found (and subject to appeal) XRP. But some commodities can *also* be securities. LUNA, for example. And sometimes a commodity that isn't always a security can be part of a securities issuance. For example, in the same case where XRP itself was found not to be a security, the judge nevertheless found Ripple violated securities laws by issuing XRP. It's way more complicated than these simple one-or-the-other soundbite arguments make out.

Whenever I hear "Dencun", I get reminded of that Terra LUNA shiller on YouTube who got everyone rekt.

Mentions:#LUNA

TradFi media pumps next LUNA. Headlines of "Solana crashes and burns, don't trust crypto" already written ready and waiting.

Mentions:#LUNA

Go back and reread your 1st reply, you claimed UST was widely trusted....  It quiet simply wasn't! Many other stablecoins had FAR more volume and were actually widely trusted.  UST was just part of a scam ecosystem that was systemically flawed from the outset and a LOT of people got into it chasing YIELD, not because they "trusted" UST (or LUNA for that matter). GREED is what drove most and because they became involved in that ecosystem, it was just EASIER to use the native stablecoin in that ecosystem.  Correlation does not = causation!  UST was never "widely trusted". UST wasn't even widely used in comparison to other top stablecoins of the time!  Turns out it was actually a unstablecoin.... who would have thought!  On the upside, pretty stable at $0.02 now! Actually, just checked and its not even stable at $0.02!

you're off topic bc im talking about LUNA/UST being considered blue chip in their primes. Which they were. I said nothing about my investments or personal allocations lol

Mentions:#LUNA

Been in the "space" since 2015 🤣 Leverage DIDN'T cause the crash.... the dodgy AF minting mechanism that was designed to maintain the UST peg IS what caused the crash!  NOTHING ELSE!  Go and look how many LUNA got minted into existence during that period!  Then go read the formula used to maintain the algorithmic UST peg.  Then you might start to understand just how wrong your understanding of what happened is!  There were MANY far more intelligent people than me warning about this PRIOR to the crash... I was just someone who heeded what they warned, then went and dug into the formula used for LUNA/UST peg and saw for myself what a clusterfuck it was waiting to be.  Many of those even spoke publically directly to Do Kwon's face! He was made VERY aware of the systemic risk at the core of everything! He KNEW, but discounted it as it fell outside the mean.... Discounted a SYSTEMIC risk! He proceeded KNOWING in the event it was triggered, it would destroy all value in the ecosystem!  And people STILL invested in that shit!  And how has that turned out for everyone involved....  It might pay you in the long run to read a few books about crowd psychology. Just because a large group are in agreement or accepting of something, does not = right/correct. In fact, it can actually in a lot of cases cause weak willed people NOT to assess things themselves properly and they just follow along blindly because that's what "everyone else is doing". 

Lol You simply don’t understand… were you even in the space during Anchor’s prime? I’m not mentioning CEX/DEX bc the listing made LUNA/UST legitimate. I’m mentioning them because those institutions themselves were over-leveraged themselves in LUNA, which caused a domino effect of crashes when LUNA fell

Mentions:#CEX#DEX#LUNA

No one is talking about throwing 100% of money into altcoins. It’s a fact that LUNA/UST we’re a trusted pair in their primes. Trying to debate me on this is silly.

Mentions:#LUNA

You do understand that projects PAY to be listed on CEX's..... right?  Think it's $80k to list on Binance, plus $60k of the token.  Being listen on a CEX gives the appearance of legitimacy,  the reality however is that the project just paid a boatload on money in exchange they purchased the appearance of legitimacy.  And it doesn't take hindsight.... it was LITERALLY laid out in LUNA/UST's white paper exactly how the mechanism worked to maintain the stablecoin peg! The math made the ASSUMPTION that value in the ecosystem was in a CLOSED loop. Anyone who bothered to read it and actually PROCESS how that mechanism would work in the real world immediately saw the fundamental flaw in it when it came to a situation that put fear into holders in that ecosystem.... a certain % of them WOULD be guaranteed to stampede for the exits and that would cripple the mechanism and cause a significant % to further leave once the mechanism failed to hold the peg. Once that happened, it was always going to result in a run away minting death spiral!  It was with good reason I didn't touch LUNA or UST with a single $!  It was a steaming pile of dog shit from the start that was obscured by some fast talking from the cult leader in charge of it, who's own ego and hubris directly caused how bad it unwound! He fuckin KNEW the risk was there, but he deliberately discounted it as it fell outside the mean and wouldn't be a problem unless it became a problem!  You can't have a SYSTEMATIC fault in your system and then discount it..... it's a fuckin SYSTEMATIC fault! That means they entire system is just waiting to IMPLODE, while everyone HOPES it doesn't!  The fuckin height of arrogance!  And here we are.... systemic failure!  Why TF would anyone trust that shit! The fact so many did, tells me clearly that most people are crowd followers and AREN'T  really doing their own due diligence!  The fact a heap of people "trusted" it is meaningless, it just speaks volumes about the lack of weight I would attribute to those peoples judgement in my own due diligence! 

Mentions:#PAY#CEX#LUNA

LUNA/UST was trusted by many people and institutions including many DEXes and CEXes. Like 2 if not more top 10 CEXes crashed out during that time due to residual affects of the LUNA crash. Luna went form like $90 to literally 0 in about 48 hours. And caused 1 of the biggest crashes in crypto history Again what you're saying is easy to say in retrospect. It was a top 10 coin for a reason - because people and institutions in the space trusted it.

Mentions:#LUNA

How'd that work out for everyone again....  Well trusted by who.... it wasn't astute crypto investors, that was for sure!  So, well trusted by mouth breathers who followed the crowd and couldn't see that the mechanism used to stabilise the UST peg was fundamentally flawed and in the right conditions, would result in a run away minting event on LUNA as it attempted to incentives people holding UST like it was some sort of closed loop and people didn't have options to exit both LUNA and UST..... The ONLY eventual outcome was always going to the exact outcome that happened! Sooner or later, it was the ONLY result that could happen!  All laid out in the fucking white paper!

comparing Doge and Shib to LUNA/UST at the time would be considered asinine. LUNA was pretty much seen as a Blue Chip coin akin to Solana and Cardano. Again it's easy to say all this in retrospect.

Mentions:#LUNA

> and their Anchor subsidies were likely to continue for a long time until LUNA turned to dogshit. Honestly this whole "treat crypto like fiat earning APY" and shit just rubs me the wrong way and seems like a great way for one group of people to separate crypto from its original owner in a legal and "above board" manner. I can't *possibly* help that this particular coin has taken a bit of a nosedive so you will have to eat the costs because after all, you gave me the private keys knowing full well that this might happen sir. Have a better day.

Mentions:#LUNA

Not that I side with OP, but wanted to clarify for others: They didn't have 700k invested in a token - it was 700k worth of UST (Luna's stablecoin) earning 20% APY in Anchor Protocol. At the time, the LUNA foundation was supporting basically the entire Anchor APY themselves - it was heavily subsidized. Users were depositing into Anchor because LUNA was so huge, and their Anchor subsidies were likely to continue for a long time.

Mentions:#OP#LUNA

Lots of people put money in anchor, including many savvy investors. In hindsight, of course, it seems foolish. But remember the narrative at the time. Do Kwon was the darling of the crypto world and high apy staking was the craze. They claimed to have cash and BTC reserves to protect UST, in addition to LUNA being top 10. I was among those who lost money from UST. I’ve been involved in groups forming lawsuits against LFG, TFL, and Do Kwon. The people who lost in this aren’t douchy degens but serious people in respectable professions. We are all wiser now, but it isn’t a group of idiots.

Mentions:#BTC#LUNA

Easy to say this in retrospect.. LUNA was a top 10 rank Coi and UST was the most trusted stablecoin

It must have been excruciating not having that dry powder at the bottom of the bear market. What has your strategy been since then? I made the same mistake. I put all my money into the market just before the first massive dip losing a lot of money (China crypto ban dip), and then I broke even after the market rebounded to its ATH. And then I I lost about 90% after LUNA and FTX shitshow. So I never gained anything for taking on such massive risk. Now I am doing alright because I consolidated everything into Solana and have just been DCAing into it.

I have this motto when it comes to investments that is"If I can't understand why people should invest in something then I probably shouldn't do it myself ". LUNA was a clear example of that: it had nothing unique from other blockchains except for having its price dependent on a speculative protocol (Anchor and consequently USDT) that had nothing except high APRs in a - apparently - stable coin. That's what happen when people go greedy instead of rational and don't make a fundamental analysis of the projects they throw their money into. It was an extremely flawed protocol but people turn their eyes into the 10% APRs.

Mentions:#LUNA#FTX

Because of the debt exposure during those events. Luna crashed because it was used as a backing asset to mint UST not USDT. The UST token was collateralized by other stable coin assets, btc ETH and LUNA When LUNA started losing value, the UST minted with that LUNA as collateral lost its peg to $1 and started dumping. The selling of UST caused more LUNA to liquidate as it was serving as the counterpart to UST that was being dumped. Both LUNA and UST took a huge shit to 0 because the UST was ultimately collateralized against a worthless token (LUNA) FtX collapsed because of a different racket in which they used the deposit from users to effectively leverage long into crypto. When btc and eth dropped and the depositors wanted their usd back the business quickly realized its insolvency and had to shut down. USDT is minted with USD in collateral. As long as the tether foundation is able to produce $1 per 1 USDT when banks ask for redemption, there is no issue. The problems start when you mint USDT against non USD pegged collateral.

Went from about $1k USD to ~$14 really quick. Damn you Voyager, damn you Mark Cuban! That was after buying more on the way down! I *thought* it was big. I'm OK. I was more OK after hearing how much deeper others were in LUNA. A little bit of schadenfreude. Life f'd me though. Crypto could have helped me massively. It still can. I'm waiting.

Everyone knows that any crypto could lose almost all of its value at any time, and any holder is free to sell and take profits at any time, or not to buy if the price is too inflated, so I would have no issues with having taken profit on something that eventually crashes. I sold a ton of LUNA for profit, for example, when it actually had significant value and Do Kwon started insulting people who questioned the LUNA/UST mechanism and generally being a tool.

Cosmos is a very interesting project. They’ve got great tech. They are the first one to do the modular blockchain that Ethereum is currently working on. Some really good chains have come out of it. TIA, LUNA(it’s not cosmos fault do kwon fucked it up), osmo, etc. I think the coin is under valued. But that’s just my opinion I don’t hold any ATOM

I agree. I used to find it bullish that LUNA(😅), TIA, SEI, INJ, DYM etc were all cosmos projects but they really have no effect on ATOM

I agree and "each halving...less dramatic" is my base case, but I do think there is a non-zero chance last cycle was an outlier with just how large the fraud and subsequent blow up was. We had multiple multi-billion dollar frauds blow up in a relatively short time period (LUNA, FTX, Celsius, etc). I do think that may have muted the cycle, and with an already small sample size to try and build a pattern on, I'm not completely sold on trying to extrapolate from the data we have. I'm not saying "this time is different", but I do think "every time is slightly different", and just wonder how much last cycle's above average overt fraud played a role in the underwhelming price movement.

A year is pretty optimistic considering UST marketcap at LUNA ATH was $19.5B, and it managed to cause a chain reaction that took down multiple large organizations and put us in a nearly 2 year bear. Tether's mcap is almost 6 times as large, and far more prevalent.

It won't affect the average western citizen I agree, but it won't just be trader bros either. My understanding is that Tether pretty popular among the younger and more tech savvy in places with limited or poor financial services, which is a group I'm definitely more sympathetic to. I remember hearing that LUNA was fairly popular in a lot of the same places and lot of people got wiped out from that. I definitely wouldn't keep a bunch of money in Tether, but also can't blame someone in Turkey or Argentina who thinks Tether is less risky than their local currency.

There really aren’t any similarities. UST was under-collateralized by LUNA (which had an elastic supply). RAI is over-collateralized by ETH. It’s a CDP that works a lot more like DAI only with elastic redemption rates. Just for the record I’m not shilling RAI here… just explaining how it works. I’m not really sure how well it (or DAI) will hold up long term.

r/CryptoCurrencySee Comment

LUNA's problem is that it didn't have the reserves to keep UST stable. The real solution, I think, is to require that each stablecoin be backed by something of equivalent value to the coin it represents. For example, each $1 stable coin could be backed by (using current market prices) 1 USD, 0.000016 BTC, 6.68 DOGE, etc.

Good. It’s crucial we do not introduce regulation that hampers DeFi innovation but we already *know* that algorithmic stablecoins are a flawed mechanism, and if one grows and collapses then we have UST/LUNA to show us what happens.

You're right. I should have just held onto my LUNA - it's bound to make all time highs this cycle.

This dip is basically a gift for those who were not stacking as much as they should have a year ago or more ago. Obviously you should not invest more than you are willing to close (e.g. LUNA). However, this is the time to be buying (or at least setting limit orders). This is not the time to sell.

ADA will pump like every other altcoin during altcoin season, but there are some caveats. 1. There's a high chance it will not do anything before altcoin season. Meanwhile, other coins like Sol might outperforming BTC in that period. 2. When Altcoin season arrives, there's a high chance it will not pump along with the 1st round of altcoins to pump, but rather on the 2nd or 3rd round. Last Bullmarket, ADA only reached 3$ at the end of the cycle and thats a long time to wait when other coins are pumping. 3. ADA dropped very hard during the LUNA & FTX crash. If you bought during that time and held it, keep hodling, but otherwise it's too risky and low reward.

2017-18 I was dabbling only. Hundreds invested turned to thousands, then held as it crashed back to hundreds. 2021-22 made a lot on ETH and LUNA, but cashed out to UST so FML. After losses and taxes I ended 2022 with about what I had at the start of 2021. So never really lost anything and still have a decent portfolio (at least for me) but never realized the crazy gains either. And definitely didn’t make the most of those bulls. Lesson to youngsters: you’re more likely to experience a bull run like this - ie something you maybe gain from probably just waste - than as something that makes you life changing money.
