Traders fleeing crypto markets – Bloomberg
The collapse of the FTX exchange has dented investor confidence in cryptocurrencies
Traders are abandoning online crypto-trading platforms in a bid to safeguard their assets in the wake of the FTX bankruptcy, Bloomberg reported on Monday, citing experts.

The “wild-west days” of crypto markets are back again as the large trading houses that once thrived on arbitraging price gaps pull back, according to the media.

Prices for identical assets are reportedly diverging on various platforms. The gap between the funding rates of identical Bitcoin futures on Binance and OKEx has been as wide as an annualized 101 percentage points and remained at least 10%, compared to mostly single-digit gaps last month.

“Everybody is heading for the hills,” chief executive officer at Pythagoras Investments, Mitchell Dong, told the media outlet, specifying that the return of some price spreads shows “things that were previously arbed out are not so arbed out.” 

Dong said his firm is writing off its 1% and 7% exposures to FTX in its market-neutral and trend-following funds respectively.

Meanwhile, Fasanara Digital lending fund, which manages about $100 million, has reportedly dialed down its risk exposure to nearly zero.

Traders now have to decide whether to write off their exposure to FTX or create a so-called sidepocket that separates those assets from the main fund, explained Barnali Biswal, chief investment officer at Atitlan Asset Management, which runs a fund that allocates to different quant managers.

“The age-old arbitrage strategies are more and more lucrative,” the former Goldman Sachs managing director said. “However, contagion risk is elevated. So, we are being conservative in our approach,” he added.

According to Chris Taylor, who runs crypto strategies at GSA Capital, the downfall of what was once a trusted exchange will make professional traders seek ways to avoid putting up collateral on any centralized platforms, for instance by using prime brokerages instead. In short, they will want crypto to look more like Wall Street, if the exchanges allow it, he explained.

“There was a lot more trust in FTX than there was in Terra/Luna,” Taylor said. “You are now seeing some of the big players pull back not completely but try to have less collateral on centralized exchanges and think more about counterparty risk.”

The Science of Gratitude & How to Build a Gratitude Practice

The benefits of gratitude come from receiving it, not giving it


Smart summary:
The major positive effects of gratitude mainly come from receiving gratitude, not giving it, according to data.

Counter to what most believe, the major positive effects of gratitude (which are many, significant & impact psychology & physiology) mainly stem from receiving gratitude not giving it… or from observing others helping. That’s what the data show anyway. Either way, give thanks!

Inflation in Japan highest since 1982
A weak yen has been pushing up the cost of imported commodities
Japan’s consumer price growth accelerated to a 40-year high in October, driven by a weak national currency and imported cost pressures, government data showed on Friday.

According to the report, the nationwide core consumer price index (CPI) was up by 3.6% from a year earlier, showing the fastest pace of growth since 1982. Last month’s jump exceeded the 3.5% rise expected by economists and the 3% gain seen in September.

The rise in the index, which excludes volatile fresh food prices but includes oil products, confirmed that inflation remained above the 2% goal of the Bank of Japan (BOJ) for a seventh consecutive month.

The report indicated that foreign supply constraints have driven up the prices of imported food, industrial commodities and manufacturing parts. A fall in the national currency yen, which in dollar terms is down by more than 20% this year, has added to the woes.

Of the 522 items composing the CPI, 406 were more expensive in October than a year earlier. In September, the figure was 385.

Energy costs in the country soared by 15.2%, while food – excluding perishables – was up by 5.9%, the fastest rise in four decades.

Among food items, 88% were more costly than a year before, led by alcoholic drinks, such as beer and sake. Prices of household durable goods surged by 11.8%, their biggest rise since March 1975.

The BOJ has forecast average prices for the fiscal year to March 2023 will be 3% higher than in 2021-22 but that the rise for 2023-24 will be only half as great.

On Thursday, the regulator pledged to maintain monetary stimulus to achieve wage growth and sustainable and stable inflation. It will keep long-term interest rates around zero and short-term rates at minus 0.1%.

Crypto ‘totally corrupt’ – Nouriel Roubini
The famed economist has blasted the industry in the wake of the FTX fiasco
Renowned economist Nouriel Roubini has denounced the cryptocurrency market as an “ecosystem that is totally corrupt,” and described some of its big players as “con men” after a major exchange collapse.

Speaking at Abu Dhabi Finance Week on Wednesday, he criticized Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao, known as CZ, and called for his crypto exchange to become the subject of careful scrutiny from regulators.

There were “seven Cs of crypto: Concealed, corrupt, crooks, criminals, con men, carnival barkers, and finally, CZ,” Roubini said on Wednesday at a panel hosted by CNBC.

“The lesson of the last few weeks is these people should be out of here,” he added.

The cryptocurrency market is going through unprecedented turbulence after last week’s sudden collapse of FTX, one of the biggest crypto exchanges. It reportedly has more than 100,000 creditors, and liabilities of between $10 billion and $50 billion. Despite filing for bankruptcy, millions of dollars worth of crypto continued to be drained from FTX wallets over the weekend, further undermining trust in the industry.

Binance initially considered buying its failing rival before pulling out of the deal. Roubini, however, suggests that Binance is not much different to FTX.

“I can’t believe that CZ and Binance have a license to operate in the UAE. He’s banned in the UK, he’s under investigation by the US Justice Department for money laundering,” Roubini said.

Binance was banned in the UK in late June, while regulators in Singapore forced the company to limit its service in the country. In the US, it operates through a spin-off company, Binance US, which has been under scrutiny since May.

Roubini, a New York University professor and chief executive of Roubini Macro Associates, came to prominence after predicting the financial crisis of 2008-09 and was dubbed ‘Doctor Doom’ by Wall Street.
有名な経済学者であるNouriel Roubini氏は、暗号通貨市場を「完全に腐敗した生態系」と非難し、主要な取引所の崩壊後にその大手企業のいくつかを「詐欺師」と表現しました。

水曜日に行われたアブダビ・ファイナンス・ウィークで、彼はバイナンスのCEOであるCZことChangpeng Zhao氏を批判し、彼の暗号取引所が規制当局の慎重な監視の対象になるよう呼びかけました。

暗号には「7つのC」があった。Concealed, corrupt, crooks, criminals, con men, carnival barkers, and finally, CZ」Roubini氏は水曜日にCNBCが主催したパネルで語った。

"ここ数週間の教訓は、これらの人々はここから出て行くべきだということだ "と彼は付け加えた。








FTX panic spreads to other crypto platforms
Gemini is reportedly facing a liquidity crunch as clients demand their money after FTX filed for bankruptcy
The fallout from the rapid collapse of the FTX cryptocurrency exchange could result in more companies in the industry facing severe liquidity issues. Gemini, owned by the Winklevoss brothers, is suffering a rush on withdrawals.

According to data from blockchain analytics platform Nansen, in the past seven days, Gemini has registered $682 million in net outflows, with $485 million withdrawn in the last 24 hours of the survey. 

The company, which was founded by Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, has been trying to calm crypto investors, announcing on Wednesday that it would halt withdrawals on its Earn accounts that provide interest. Its lending partner for the Earn accounts is Genesis, one of oldest and most well-known crypto brokers.

“We are aware that Genesis Global Capital … has paused withdrawals and will not be able to meet customer redemptions within the service-level agreement (SLA) of 5 business days,” Gemini said, adding that they are working to help customers redeem their funds from the Earn program “as quickly as possible.”

Crypto exchange Genesis confirmed on Wednesday that it has stopped customer withdrawals and issuance of new loans as a result of investor panic.

On November 9, two days before FTX filed for bankruptcy, Cameron Winklevoss issued a thinly veiled criticism of FTX, tweeting: “We do not do anything with your funds unless explicitly authorized and directed to do so by you. Regulatory oversight is important as it ensures that companies like Gemini do what they say they do.”

Hundreds of millions vanish from collapsed cryptocurrency giant
An estimated $662 million in digital assets has reportedly been withdrawn from FTX in ‘unauthorized transactions’
Failing cryptocurrency exchange FTX has begun moving assets offline, after more than $600 million in tokens was allegedly pilfered from the digital wallets on its platform.

After filing for bankruptcy protection from creditors on Friday, FTX “initiated precautionary steps to move all digital assets to cold storage,” said Ryne Miller, general counsel for the firm’s US arm. “Process was expedited this evening to mitigate damage upon observing unauthorized transactions.”

However, considerable damage had already been done. According to an estimate by blockchain research firm Nansen, $662 million flowed out of FTX’s US and international exchanges. The firm’s main wallet, which was used to process withdrawals, was drained of its entire balance of 45.8 million FTT tokens, worth an estimated $97.2 million, Nansen said.

A separate review by another analytics firm, Elliptic Connect, pegged the thefts at $473 million. The FTX community administrator on Telegram said the exchange had been hacked. FTX applications are infected with malware, according to the administrator, which also warned followers against loading the exchange’s website.

The Bahamas-based FTX and about 130 affiliated companies commenced Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings on Friday in Delaware. The firm also announced that Democratic Party donor Sam Bankman-Fried had resigned as CEO.

Bankman-Fried, who reportedly ranked behind only billionaire political activist George Soros in 2022 pledges to Democratic Party candidates, saw his entire $16 billion fortune wiped out this week, according to Bloomberg, which called the collapse “one of history’s greatest-ever destructions of wealth.”

Miller, the general counsel, said the exchange was “investigating abnormalities with wallet movements related to consolidation of FTX balances across exchanges.”


金曜日に債権者から破産保護を申請した後、FTXは「すべてのデジタル資産を低温倉庫に移動するための予防措置を開始した」と、同社の米国部門の顧問弁護士であるRyne Miller氏は述べています。「不正な取引が確認されたため、被害を軽減するために今晩、処理を急ぎました」。


別の分析会社Elliptic Connectによる別のレビューでは、盗難額は4億7300万ドルに上るとされている。テレグラムのFTXコミュニティ管理者は、取引所がハッキングされたと述べた。管理者によると、FTXのアプリケーションはマルウェアに感染しており、同取引所のウェブサイトを読み込まないようフォロワーに警告も発している。

バハマに拠点を置くFTXと約130の関連会社は、金曜日にデラウェア州で連邦破産法第11条の手続きを開始した。同社はまた、民主党の献金者であるSam Bankman-FriedがCEOを辞任したことを発表した。


顧問弁護士のミラーは、取引所が "取引所間のFTX残高の統合に関連するウォレットの動きで異常を調査している "と述べた。

Japanese may be asked to cut winter power use – media
The curbs could reportedly help avert blackouts
The Japanese government plans to call on households and businesses to save electricity when possible, starting from December, NHK broadcaster reported this week, citing an “unpredictable” power supply situation.

According to the report, Tokyo says utilities are likely to secure a reserve power supply capacity rate of 3%, the minimum needed for a stable supply nationwide. However, procurement costs of liquefied natural gas remain high. Officials are reportedly blaming Russia’s military operation in Ukraine for the higher costs.

“The government will endorse on Tuesday a request for households and businesses to save power between December and March, without going out of their way to do so,” NHK reported, noting that a similar request had been made in the summer, when demand for power surged as temperatures went up.

The media outlet quoted the authorities as saying that if all households manage to cut energy consumption by 1%, enough electricity could be saved to power 15,000 convenience stores for a day. “The government will ask that people layer their clothes indoors and switch off lights that are not in use.”

Tokyo also believes that a 1% cut in electricity use by all offices would be enough to power some 100 thousand households, according to NHK. It reportedly plans to ask companies to reduce their use of lights and air conditioning when possible.

Russia accounts for around 10% of Japan’s LNG imports annually. The East Asian nation has drastically increased energy purchases from Moscow in recent months amid growing fears of a shortage, data shows.
