Ghost Trader — Milestones, What A Difference A Year Makes
For months now, we have spent a great deal of time educating the public about the market, the digital asset space, and many other important subjects. Even when the discussion centered on the GTR project itself, the material tended to focus on the specific mechanics of our ecosystem, our tokenomics, or effective strategies associated with the platform.
Today, though, rather than getting off into the weeds, we will focus on the Ghost Trader’s long list of accomplishments. Despite the treacherous market environment with which we have all struggled, the team has managed to achieve so much. This year may have flown by, but the team has remained busier than ever building and growing the project at warp speed.
The Anniversary of Being Boring
Contrary to popular belief, there is such a thing as bad publicity. In fact, oftentimes the most robust, the healthiest projects in the digital asset space make the least amount of noise. Part of that is a function of the old news adage, “If it bleeds, it leads.” Bad actors get the headlines. That logic makes sense. People love disaster porn. Everyone likes to rubberneck. Gawking is endemic to the human condition. The digitization of our economy and our social interactions has simply magnified and exacerbated that fact.
Projects that consistently hit goals rarely garner much broad attention. Perhaps we can attribute this tendency to the shorter attention spans that the internet has cultivated. Blame it on Twitter and Instagram if you must. Or perhaps the real truth is more mundane. Good news just does not register viscerally with people the way failure does, and it never has. Regardless of the reason, the fact remains — success is tedious.
For that reason alone, GTR has proven itself pretty boring. You will find no rank shitcoinery or shenanigans here. Our team believes this monotony of triumphs to be a very good thing, indeed. Boring makes us strong, and boring makes us predictable — two incredibly important characteristics of serious, successful, reliable financial instruments.
Happy Birthday, Ghost Trader
Despite our tendency to eschew the flash, spectacle, and outright degeneracy of the broader BSC space, we nevertheless approach a rather auspicious occasion that deserves mention. Just around the corner next week, on Dec 20, 2022, we will celebrate the official anniversary of the project’s launch. The team proudly submits a highlight list of major GTR achievements since inception:

Miles Ahead Through Consistency
Ghost Trader has maintained a remarkable track record of consistency for the entire year, performing under the worst conditions the market has seen in well over a decade. The rest of the capital markets have bled themselves white. Even the now second-richest man in the world and the largest company on the planet both had terrible years.
While the team certainly has not remained silent on that point, the team has chosen to maintain its focus on putting in the hard miles, to keep building through success. We believe that the results speak for themselves. But right now, the time has come to celebrate our successes a bit.
