Buy the Fucking Dip with Willy Woo

“It’s a different game now, it’s more measured, a little bit slower, much more capital involved…Bitcoin has really crossed that chasm now to impact traditional finance very clearly in this year.”

Comparisons between the 2017 & 2020/2021 bull markets are commonplace, and for a good reason. The 2016 halving kicked off a huge run and the first instance of wider retail getting involved in the Bitcoin market. 2020’s halving was one catalyst for the current bull run. However, this time, the market participants are very different. 

Michael Saylor helped change the way institutions approach bitcoin, and a slew of other companies followed in his footsteps. Then, most notably, El Salvador became the first nation-state to make Bitcoin legal tender. Mainstream bitcoin investment has been a defining event of 2021.

Further, this year has witnessed much more complex market activity: ETFs, shorting, and debt leveraged long positions. As a result, stakeholders have also had to assimilate a rapid increase in market-shifting news. This past month has been no exception, culminating in Nayib Bukele, El Salvador’s president, announcing his country’s ‘Bitcoin Bond’. 

In this interview, I talk to on-chain analyst and long-time friend of the show, Willy Woo. We discuss price forecasts, El Salvador’s ‘Bitcoin Bond’, political attacks on Bitcoin, macro events, and comparisons to Ethereum.
