TST Token – The Standard “Fair Launch” Doesn’t Appear Too Fair

The Standard Token TST leaves more questions than answers for this Maker DAO ERC20 copycat.

Can you really call something a fair launch when you have a tenth of the supply sold on the pre-market to angel and institutional investors with a year vesting period? Did I say tenth because actually Vaultoro gets 5% too for their seed investment in TST, a company which proudly proclaims their shill kit.

Then another 25% for the advisors, team, and developers plus 15% for marketing partners. Wait how many of these tokens are going to the public at all? Somewhere between 350-353 million will be available to the general public between the private distribution and public distribution.

I like these guys behind TST they seem like someone I would want to have a beer with, but I wouldn’t trust them more than any car salesman off the street. News flash Bitcoin already solved inflation and if you loan it out to any cefi or defi entity you run the risk of getting scamwicked out of it with a forced liquidation. Don’t sell your Bitcoin, don’t loan your Bitcoin, and take heavy caution and due diligence before investing in a stablecoin protocol before the SEC has made any specific comments on how they plan to regulate the stablecoin or defi market.

Andrei takes us back to 1899 where economist Thorstein Bunde Veblen published a theory of conspicuous consumption. In it he detailed the Veblen good, not to be confused with the Giffen good, which is a luxury item where as demand for the good increases the price increases to serve as a status symbol to others. He then explains why previous Veblen goods have fallen out of favor and how the NFT has become the ultimate status symbol.

Why Can’t Onion Futures Be Traded?

Onions are so delicious and a great staple of any grocery store. As a gardener I think it is neat plant, but as they say around the world "enjoying onions you have to cry". In 1955 two men, Vincent Kosuga and Sam Siegel, partnered together in a greed-fueled run to corner the Chicago onion market.
