Justin Tabb:

If you’re part of the pump and dump groups… Raise your hand if you’ve been part of one! I’m raising my hand… I’ve been part of one.

This is seriously one of the funniest things I have ever watched, and I’m not sure how I missed this. In this video, Substratum CEO Justin Tabb admits he used to be part of a pump and dump group in front of a live audience. This is honestly what I love about crypto. The contrast between some of the most brilliant minds in the world with CEOs who discuss their past lives as pump and dumpers makes for such a beautiful shitshow. I don’t mean this in a bad way at all. Crypto is an emerging industry, and it’s truly fascinating to watch it mature. Can you imagine what would happen if Tim Cook went on stage at WWDC and announced told the audience he used to pump and dump stocks?
