MAN DOWN Selkis suspended. Time to swoop in and get him and all of Messari on Farcaster, @dwr.

Curious what casters think of Matt Levine's magnum opus on crypto (40k words!). https://www.bloomberg.com/features/2022-the-crypto-story/
I want my angel check back.
To further toot my own horn, I believe I called this in the last chapter of Chaos Monkeys.
