 ⁃ Ledger: “I think that Sushi will have significant staying power in the DeFi landscape”

Multi-Cycle Wisdom 🧙‍♂️

 ⁃ Ledger: “understand your timeframes, how much you are willing to lose here”

 ⁃ Light: “if you’re wiped out if some of this actually goes to 0 you are over allocated”

 ⁃ Light: “I was probably 2x levered my net worth on the way down in 2017”

 ⁃ Light: “I think Dan (M in CMS) said this but do not let yourself become a forced seller” 🐧

 ⁃ Cobie: “The most important thing is just surviving cycle to cycle”

 ⁃ Light: “I’ve been wrong so many times in this space but still made money because I don’t feel the need to be right” Light legit just keeps quoting CMS lol 🐧🐧🐧

 ⁃ Light: “It is very satisfying to walk away from mistakes that you’ve made in the past”

 ⁃ Cobie: “You need to make a plan when you’re thinking clearly and have the discipline to actually carry it out once you’re emotional”

 ⁃ Light: “Be self-aware and able to introspect yourself” 🧘‍♂️

Light’s Last Comments

 ⁃ “You have to be able to see the market objectively”

 ⁃ “You have to see yourself as a market participant and improve with every trade”

 ⁃ “This market will give you incredible once in a decade opportunities so you have to be prepared to take them when they come” 🗿

*Light leaves for McDonald’s shift*

Closing comments

 ⁃ Cobie: “trading is kinda like Star Wars where there’s the Jedi vs. the Sith – but you gotta know when to be the Jedi and when to be the Sith and gain power from fear” 🟩<->🟥

 ⁃ Cobie: “something for me was getting comfortable actually selling and buying, like not caring about the txs fee”

⁃ Ledger (on doucher in the chat): “I think sometimes people just see my face and say like this guy just has the most punchable face and just rip me until we ban them from the chat” lolllllll

Worst Case for ETH (This Year)

 ⁃ Cobie: “like 10% conviction? maybe $800”
