After the devastating criticism of Bitcoin & Co. by the Permabär Nouriel at the beginning of this week, the problems of the crypto exchange Bitfinex and the stable coin Tether came into the focus of the commentators. The opinion ECHO for the 42nd calendar week.
Here is the Bitcoin code review
Roubini’s anti-Bitcoin tirade before the US Senate continued on the economist’s Twitter account at the beginning of the week. The economist is using ever heavier guns to fire towards the crypto community like this https://www.geldplus.net/en/bitcoin-code-review/. The quintessence of his Bitcoin code review tweets: The Bitcoin community is a cesspool of blinded, coprophagous shitcoiners whose ultra-liberal tendencies are surpassed only by their anti-Semitic tendencies.
NYU resists Roubini with Bitcoin code scam
Roubini’s downright trumpeting Twitter troll has meanwhile reached a degree of review unprofessionality that even calls alumni of New York University (NYU), where Roubini teaches, to the fore. For example, Max Keiser, crypto-investor and alumnus of NYU, criticizes the Bitcoin code scam plan:
„It pains me to see @nouriel [Roubini] behave like a horse’s ass. I am now in contact with the NYU leadership to ask them if they can’t urge this embarrassing rage-aholic to reason. It damages the working morale of the students.“
Roubini’s tirades could also influence NYU’s support through alumni donations:
„Many NYU members have already made contact with Roubini and are trying to get him to shut up. He is known as a rage-aholic, egomaniac and windbag. The students complain. It becomes also for Alumni fund Raiser like me the topic ?
Of course, Dr. Doom also took the opportunity to comment on the current drama about Bitfinex and the Stable Coin Tether (USDT):
„Tether is the mother of all crypto scams and supports Bitcoin and all the other shitcoins by up to 80 percent. But the regulators, who started investigating Tether/Bitfniex months ago, are still „sleeping at the wheel“.
Experts agree, Tether is a massive fucking scam.
I figured it out based on common sense and the background of the people behind the exchange.
It didn’t help that Bitfinex was founded by a Ponzi scammer.https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-10-12/this-texas-finance-professor-sifts-data-for-signs-of-rigged-markets …
This tweet is from the Roubini retweetet Bitfnix’ed series. Indeed, on 16 October, the economist spent his lunchtime sharing the tweets of @Bitfnix’ed, arguably the sharpest critic of the currently controversial Bitfinex crypto exchange.
