The Crypto Shit Show

Are the markets as bad as they look? Yeppp. They’re that bad. First we got LUNA, then we got out-of-control inflation, now a Celsius shit show. The whole thing is a shit show. In fact, today’s conversation between myself and Sir Lord Travis Wright is probably going to be nothing more than a shit show. As you join us from my terrace in Puerto Rico as we talk all things that are currently happening in the cryptocurrency and blockchain world, it is our “This is Fine” Episode #615 of The Bad Crypto Podcast.
