GTR — Your Bridge to the Exponential Age

These days, it feels like the global situation changes daily. Everything is a blur. The old slow progress paradigm has left the building, and with a vengeance. Over the past two decades, volatility has gotten steadily more severe, building to the crescendo of massive social forces that escape our control. Whether you find yourself on the winning or losing end of that rate of change, one thing stands for certain. You are affected, likely more so every day.

We’re Not in Kansas Anymore

Take the last few months. We currently stand witness to a land war in Europe, something that has not occurred in almost 80 years. The war is still only a few months old, but already, the fears of escalation abound — nuclear option included. The world is only now beginning to reckon with the persistent effects of the C-19 pandemic and the policy of massive inflation that central banks pursued during it. That problem will take decades to reconcile.

The global economy itself has begun to reflect the trend of the age, looking more like a bubble bursting than a healthy, sustainable market. Brutal volatility spikes punctuate every move, up or down. Stability no longer exists, and people get wrecked. Gone is the age of decades where nothing happens. The world has entered the age where decades happen weekly… with no end in sight.

The Age of Instability, aka The Exponential Age

The events we witness, the shifts in politics and finance, they all have increased in both frequency and magnitude. The resulting effects have scaled ever larger as well. We have seen the so-called “butterfly effect” take on a life of its own, with so-called “black swan events” occurring almost quarterly. More people doing more things creates more chaos, leading to even more unpredictability.

Worse still — and hitting a bit closer to home for most of us — the modern era has typically brought each successive generation a better set of material conditions than the generations that preceded. Obviously, regional and national exceptions exist. But even during a period of horror and violence — two world wars, for example — people’s lives tended to get better, on average. Now, it appears that we may be entering a period that has no precedent. Life expectancies are plummeting in the US, for example. The US is at once the economic, military, and cultural hegemon at the moment, with no real peers challenging that dominance. Let that sink in for a moment.

Some Data

Recently, the Pew Research Center released an interesting and quite telling study on the future expectations of people globally. The major findings of that study warrant highlighting. With one lone exception, Singapore, large swathes of people in most countries have very little optimism about the next generation’s financial future.

In fact, more than 75% of adults in Japan, France, Italy and Canada say children will be worse off financially than their parents. According to the study, fully 70% of adults across 19 major countries believe that younger generations will see their future prospects diminish, where previously the opposite was the case. The entire study can be found here.

But Wait, There’s More!

Clearly, people hold some serious reservations about their futures, and for the futures of their children. Nation-states have proven unable or unwilling to ensure a brighter future, and people’s perspectives reflect those failures. Most people have come to the rather stunning realization that no one is coming to help us.

Just today, for example, the Bank of England just decided to intervene on behalf of the cavitating British Pound, a reaction to newly-minted Tory Prime Minister Truss’ government’s broadly unpopular policy announcement from last Friday. The results between just those two events over less than a week have preceded significant market swings, as they seem terribly at cross-purposes with one another. Take from that whatever you will.

The bottom line is simple. The world is complex. Most of us cannot expect much help from our respective governments. Even if they were of the prerogative to provide assistance, little evidence exists that they could be of much help. The world has become orders of magnitude more complex over the past half-century, too complex for centralized authority.

Additionally, even if you are of the mind to take the task upon yourself, this market environment is no place for a novice. Truth be told, it is no place for even intermediate traders, especially if one’s aim is to maximize capital preservation during a broadly collapsing global market. Even worse, securing yield in this fraught environment remains an elusive goal for even seasoned veterans of the trading space.

The Good News

Believe it or not, there is a light in the darkness. You do not have to relegate yourself to living a life worse than your parents. There is a better way, and that way is through GTR.

As we here at GTR have maintained all along, experience matters. For 10 consecutive trading periods, reaching all the way back to November of 2021, our trading team has delivered market-beating rewards consistently, without unduly risking contributors’ capital. Rather than watching everything collapse, GTR NFT holders have reaped the benefits of high yield while simultaneously enjoying a position of strong capital preservation.

Even the GTR token, itself vulnerable to vagaries and vacillations of the market, has managed to hold its own against the rest of the market, all while consistently remitting a consistent stablecoin (BUSD) reward stream to holders every month, like clockwork.

At GTR, we have built an ecosystem designed from the ground up to help our contributors achieve a better life. We made a vow to our community. As time continues to press on, we continue to walk the walk, bridging the divide as we go. We would like to welcome you to come along with us.
