How signalling explains SoftBank’s $4 billion call option trade, SushiSwap’s vampire attack, and why we make Art

This week, we look at:

  • PayPal and Square being larger than Bank of America and Goldman Sachs

  • The SoftBank $4 billion in tech oligopoly call options, and why people feel uneasy

  • Uniswap vs. SushiSwap, and Bitcoin vs. Litecoin, and why these forks felt wrong

  • How understanding signalling can help make better decisions

Modulate how much you need to signal, and what that signal has to say, based on how much others do it. Remember finally that even the games are part of meta-games, and may not have your health and happiness at heart. Sometimes the right move is to understand that some particular rat race is the wrong one for you, and leave it to the other rodents.
