5 Alpha Tweets - Binance vs SEC, Louis Vuitton NFTs & More
Welcome to the alpha please newsletter. I curate five alpha tweets every Friday; that’s it, that’s the newsletter.
*Elon is still waging a war with Substack, so I have embedded the images again. You can click them and they will take you to the tweets.
We’ve had quite the turbulent week.
The SEC have sued both Binance and Coinbase, and called a number of coins securities (SOL, ADA, MATIC & others).
It should be noted that neither BTC or ETH have nuked.
Your weekly reads:
Today’s newsletter is brought to you by Vertex Protocol:
If you are looking to try out a DEX that is much closer to the performance of a CEX then Vertex is the one.
Vertex allows you to trade, earn, and borrow all from one DEX. Their Universal Cross-Margin means all funds across spot, perps & money markets contribute to your account’s margin.
Vertex haven’t released their token yet, but you can earn it by using their platform! The UI is also a delight.

alpha_pls tweet of the week
Security is something you should never compromise on in crypto. I’ve recently come across Webacy.
It’s a full Web3 Safety Suite with a great interface and dashboard. Getting real time notifications if any unusual transactions occur in your wallet could be the difference between you saving your assets or losing them.
A few things you can do with it:
• Get a risk score based on your wallet attributes and transactions
• Get SMS’s and/or emails of all inbound and outbound transactions, approvals, trades, and more, for both pending and confirmed states of transaction
• Webacy’s Backup Wallet empowers you to set a recovery wallet in case of loss of access or wallet drainer hack. The Panic Button allows you to move assets in bulk to a safe wallet that you determine in the event of a compromised wallet.
And that’s your alpha.
