SPACs have been around since the early 90’s, when they were dominated by a small New York City-based securities firm GKN. Since, then, SPACs have had modest periods of resurgence, but nothing like the explosion they had in 2020. There were more funds raised via SPACs in 2020 ($83B) then in the entire previous decade:

SPACs have been around since the early 90’s, when they were dominated by a small New York City-based securities firm GKN:

David Nussbaum, Chairman of GKN Securities, sought to capitalize on the convergence of the changing economic tide and the new regulatory environment created by Rule 419. The key to Nussbaum’s idea…

I saw that crypto light on June 29, 2017. I became of the belief that crypto was going to be the biggest thing to happen in the history of humanity.

But now, for the first time in history technology was creating a toolset to enable us to solve for the community, to have rules without rulers.

I saw the crypto light on June 29, 2017. One way I help educate people is to suggest they follow the 50 top crypto bloggers on Medium, and every day you’ll get an email with various crypto-related posts. You’ll find a few bloggers who really speak to you.

But in the 3 1/2 years I’ve been in crypto, no one speaks to me like MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor. Per Michael.com:

Michael Saylor is the Chairman & CEO of MicroStrategy (MSTR), a publicly traded business intelligence firm that he founded in 1989…
