A MANDATORY VIDEO FOR ALL CRYPTO ENTHUSIST

One of the largest pieces of crypto legislation will be introduced this Tuesday (6/7). It includes definitions of which coins are commodities, coins considered securities, stablecoins, CBDC framework, and NFT direction. Let’s dive into why you should be paying attention. 🧵

Senator Cynthia Lummis (R) from Wyoming is introducing legislation on Tuesday to integrate cryptos into the financial system. Sounds bullish, right? https://twitter.com/SenLummis/status/1532746920866762754?s=20&t=LQTdor3on8tSsh3nfAHibgOpens in a new tab.Opens in a new tab.

We’ve been teasing it for months, but the time is almost here – a proposal to fully integrate digital assets into our financial system. Excited to finally unveil this effort next week. Stay tuned 👀 👀

Recently @HeritageOpens in a new tab. Foundation hosted a panel with everyone who worked on or influenced the legislation. The biggest issue with regulation currently is US leaders don’t understand crypto. This video with 6k views was the best time investment of my week.Opens in a new tab.

It was a wide ranging discussion featuring Opens in a new tab.@tedcruz, @saylor, @CaitlinLong_, @KevinRobertsTX and @profstonge and covered many topics beyond legislation. Link to watch in its entirety:  https://youtu.be/hh-elIu_KPk 

It hits home nearly all of the largest outstanding questions across our industry. The issue is, every person on this panel HEAVILY favors $BTCOpens in a new tab.. It’s legislation being written and introduced by a group of $BTCOpens in a new tab. maxis. Horrendous for other L1’s…Opens in a new tab.

So let’s dive into the panel… Well, they choose everyone’s favorite degen as the earliest set of eyes to help with direction. Michael “There is no second best” Saylor! Need I say more? https://twitter.com/BitTowne/status/1531980362368311296?s=20&t=oQZMlO9sVVRqIOycJYqd9wOpens in a new tab.

We also have @tedcruzOpens in a new tab. (R) of Texas. A quick history lesson, when China banned $BTCOpens in a new tab. mining Texas welcomed the miners with open arms. Electricity is cheap due to operating on a separate power grid from the rest of the nation. Miners flocked into the area over the past two years

Cruz now has massive crypto donors that operate a Proof of Work network in his state. Keeping BTC strong and alts weak directly benefits Texas… and some of his largest new donors. He states he owns $BTCOpens in a new tab. and everything else is outside his risk profile.Opens in a new tab.

Then we have Senator Lummis who has her own incentives to pump $BTCOpens in a new tab. instead of any other L1’s or altcoins. At one point in the video discussing altcoins she states “Burn it all down. Bitcoin will be the Phoenix that rises”.Opens in a new tab.

The moral of the story here is anyone outside of $BTCOpens in a new tab. holders is in big trouble in the coming weeks. The first thing they call out as being decided by the legislation is commodities vs. securities. $ETHOpens in a new tab. and L1s will fall under the blanket of securities.Opens in a new tab.

If you’d like to get a headstart @TheBlock__Opens in a new tab. was able to obtain a copy of the Lummis legislation prior to next week’s final copy. By the outlined definition below, nearly every cryptocurrency including $ETHOpens in a new tab. are securities. https://www.theblockcrypto.com/post/149186/heres-a-full-draft-of-senator-cynthia-lummis-landmark-crypto-bill?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=socialOpens in a new tab. https://www.theblockcrypto.com/post/149186/heres-a-full-draft-of-senator-cynthia-lummis-landmark-crypto-bill?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=socialOpens in a new tab.

I’ve combed through the bill but haven’t had time to cover all 70+ pages. This copy is dated March 1st so plenty of changes could have been made since shared. There is bullish content that will help progress the space surrounding stablecoin regulation and the banning of CBDCs.

Charts seem to agree with the thesis that $ETHOpens in a new tab. and other L1’s will be classified as securities. Buckle up if you hold anything but $BTCOpens in a new tab. or stables.

This has some other very interesting implications for the CEX landscape. It could also be the reason behind some of the massive headlines that have dropped lately for some of the top exchanges. Will they be forced to meet the regulations of all broker-dealers?

I found it extremely odd that @coinbaseOpens in a new tab. went from flaunting it’s stack of cash to rescinding job offers in a matter of weeks. They could be getting forced to make a heavy pivot for their business in the coming months to meet regulations.Opens in a new tab.

It’ll be interesting to see which CEX or leaders step up to push back on legislation. Gemini/Coinbase and most likely the others already have issues regarding the SEC. Who is going to step up and poke the bear? It’s going to be needed and most likely worth it.

Another hidden narrative is that the Grayscale GBTC spot ETF application response is due back from the SEC on July 7th. They’ve previously denied spot ETF’s due to things like stablecoin FUD that are cleared up in this bill.Opens in a new tab.

In my opinion, we are in a shakey spot in the market and I’ll be keeping my funds on the sidelines until we have more clarity on the finalized legislation. I’d assume based on all the info here, $ETHOpens in a new tab. and other alts will see their final shakeouts in the next month or two. 📉

So my advice to you on how to play this.. I don’t have any, because none of this is financial advice. Do your own research and correct anything I have wrong, I’m not a macro expert. . Maybe keeps comments civil? I decided to tag a bunch of senators. Enjoy the weekend and GL! 👨‍🔬
