Nouriel Roubini makes a coin

Crypto Critic Nouriel Roubini Is Working on a Tokenized Dollar Replacement
Nouriel Roubini, a blockchain basher who famously called Bitcoin “the mother of all bubbles,” is working to develop a suite of financial products including a tokenized asset intended to act as a “more resilient dollar” in the face of higher inflation, climate change and civil unrest.

Nouriel Roubini, noted cryptocurrency critic, has announced that he will be launching a stablecoin backed by gold and real estate for inflation protection.  Is it a "good idea"? Probably for Nouriel.  

Seems like a glorified money market fund to me.  For which I defer to a previous episode of Crypto Critics' Corner where we discussed the STABLE Act with Rohan Grey.   In short, I don't particularly think these structures are good either.  

Terra Dies, Spectacularly

Terra is dead if not dying, with the LUNA token dropping from a high of $115 to less than $0.01.  $UST the stable token has not returned to peg, and the chain had to be stopped so that no one took it over.

Because of this I have had to share my opinion on Terra in a bunch of different places, and expect to have some more of these next week.  

These systems are still unsustainable, but I don't think that will stop someone from coming up with a new version of these disasters.  

I feel as though I should have more thoughts on Terra for this newsletter, but I am frankly thought out after all those interviews.
