Even with the entry of giants such as Tesla and Square into cryptocurrency, the industry remains a volatile place for traders and investors. With over $100 billion currently locked in DeFi protocols, black swan events and flash crashes, such as the one seen in May 2021, continue to present a risk to anyone with money in the rapidly growing market.Bumper Finance introduces an innovative protocol enabling users to battle the roller coaster rides of volatility that exist in the markets; the protocol’s native BUMP token plays a central role in price protection and a public sale of the token…
A Black Swan is a higly improbable event that:
– It is unpredictable
– Has a massive impact
– After the event we make up an explanation that makes it less random and more predictable.
It happens because we focus on things we already know, and never take into consideration what we don’t know (see the link in here to the “known unknows” and “unknown unknows” from Rumsfeld).
We are therefore unable to truly estimate the opportunities, too vulnerable to the impulse to simplify, narrate and categorize, and not open enough to reward those who can imagine the impossible.
Black Swans ocurs because of the weak signals between cause and effect, which are also difficult to determine under complexity.… Read more...
In a news cycle dominated by covid and the Afghanistan tragedy, most of us would have missed a report by the World Economic Forum (WEF), The Future of Jobs (bit.ly/2UsgjvU).

Los fans del control centralizado (antes comunistas, ahora globalistas) tienen verdaderos problemas para entender que el mundo está lleno de actores racionales que se adaptan de forma dinámica a las condiciones de su entorno, provocando que el sistema en su conjunto deje de ser predecible.
El mundo no es lineal, sino complejo, y nadie puede planificarlo sin correr el riesgo de perderlo todo de forma inesperada. Véase el resultado de las economías planificadas socialistas.
Cuanto más centralizado, interconectado, y menos orgánico sea el mundo más vulnerable resulta a shocks catastróficos. La globalización (tal y como se ha planteado) no puede tener otro resultado que el colapso, por las interdependencias rígidas y los puntos débiles de las cadenas de suministro.… Read more...
