Last week, $60B in value was wiped from crypto in a few days.

Not many saw the collapse of Luna coming - even fewer had the guts to bet on it.

Since the start of the year, Galois Capital has been openly calling out for the impending fall of Luna and endured the barrage of hate comments until 8th May 2022 - the day that Luna started death spiraling. Kevin Zhou from Galois Capital shares with us:

  • Why he was convinced LUNA would implode
  • How he timed his short trade
  • The 4 high conviction trades Galois has taken
  • How Terra Luna can recover - and why its current plan doesn't work
