2023.03.27 06:04 mrnotadvice CRE Class A defaults already starting - Blackstone is leading the way in sheer dollars.

CRE Class A defaults already starting - Blackstone is leading the way in sheer dollars.
To follow-up on my CRE post over the weekend, I had a number of people dm me asking what my positions were or how I arrive at candidates. Well, looking over this graphic, I wasn't surprised to see A class properties already in default and/or in "Special servicing" - which is "yeah, they are a problem but we don't want to put them into default category." What's interesting to me is the last column - many of these are a large number of buildings, not just one or two. A bit harder to rent say 14 buildings to get a loan performing again than 1 building. Plus, they were CMBS - before any 2023 haircuts.
Blackstone ($BX):
  • Revenues in 2021 were $22.57billion and dropped to $8.5 billion in 2022. OUCH
  • Worse, net interest income dropped from $461 million to NEGATIVE $105 million.
  • Long term debt rose from $7.7 billion in 2021 to $12.3 billion in 2022 - I think BX is trying to borrow to buy itself time.
  • BX does have access to about $187 billion in credit to bring to bear so its not like they will go out of business. think of them as one of the Too Big To Fail CRE firms.
  • BX runs an internal non traded $71 billion REIT - which they have halted withdrawals for 4 months and counting.
  • Operating income dropped from $13 billion in 2021 to $4.9 billion in 2022.
  • But the big data point for me is that over the last 6 months, BX insiders sold 97.83% of BX stock. Now, a lot of this selling was from various BX limited partnerships which companies like BX use to hide the salami but still, that is a crap ton of selling.
  • BX has a current PE of 35 and a forward PE of 13ish while the industry has a PE of 9
  • BX has a PEG ratio (PE plus what earnings are expected to grow at) of 3.43 while the industry average is .73
  • By these two metrics, BX is priced at a premium, probably due to the fact that they have some very smart people working for them. But smart people cannot overcome negative momentum when it starts to affect things they cannot control.
  • Finally, while they do have a nice 5% div, their payout ratio is 208%.
  • So, falling revenues, falling asset performance, falling asset values, negative dividend coverage, insiders dumping. Not a good picture.
I do not think in anyway that BX is going out of business. I do believe their recent defaults of $1 billion in CMBS, not straight mortgages, are just the tip of the iceberg. The question is, how deep does it go?
For me, I believe that the CRE market dive is only starting. If a rising tide raises all ships, the opposite occurs with a falling tide.
One last note: BX earnings and revenue drops were BEFORE the last 2 months when CRE started feeling pain. Just when they were recovering from Covid, Yellen's incompetence created a huge (imo) outlier risk.
BX reports earnings soon so a surprise to the upside or the Fed announcing a cut could screw up my thesis but I think that BX will fall to $70 with a possibility for a flush to $60 my real target. Thats -13 and -23 from the current price.
So, I am looking at SEPT 60-70 puts, haven't decided yet. Projected return if BX falls to $60 would be 200%ish. MY stop will be right above this months high, $92.50. If that happens I will lose 60% on the premium. So Reward to risk is 3.3X, not great but not bad (I usually look for 10X option plays on 20% moves) if BX falls to $60 by July 1.
DISCLAIMER: You are a grown ass person so if you decide this is a trade you like, it's on you. I am not telling or recommending this to anyone. And I am prepared to manage the position on spikes or dumps if need be - this is not to me a set and forget.
TLDR: BX is very over valued by traditional metrics, insiders have sold 97% of their stock, and I am taking a shot.
Thanks and I welcome intelligent comments. Stupid comments not so much.

I'm curious to see how much my views change as the quarters go on. My guess is that I'll probably post a new version of this before earnings (my guess on the future based on events in the quarter) and right after earnings (did anything change given AMD's results and commentary).

2023.03.27 05:22 Fuzzforge "Northern Light" - a love letter to my favorite band

Hi folks, figured I'd drop another jacket for your viewing pleasure. This, is Northern Light.
This is a constant WIP I've been working on for several years. My major inspiration for this came from Japanese Sashiko and Boro designs. I wanted something that looked weathered and worn, and I think it's going ok so far.
Most of the pieces on this jacket are references to lyrics from the band The Wonder Years. But, along the way, I've started adding some personal pieces onto this, including some reminders that life isn't what we expect. This is probably one of the only music related pieces I have currently.
I hope you guys like it! Check out more of my stuff on my website. Https://

I'm a game developer interested in learning about machine learning and how it can be applied to my games. While I don't know much about it yet, I'm excited to explore its potential and start with something simple, like a "hello world" equivalent.
In terms of skills, I have experience building my own game engine using C++ and OpenGL, and am comfortable with matrix multiplication and interacting with the GPU. While I am not a math expert outside of game development, I'm willing to take on new challenges.
However, I'm currently feeling a bit overwhelmed and unsure of where to start. I've created a study playlist that includes the following resources, and would appreciate any feedback on whether these are a good starting point:

2023.03.27 04:18 KPI_Guy Card recommendation, overall strategy , advice request and more questions.

I've not been strategic in the cards I've opened over the last several years but would like to get your opinions on what the next best options are. Here are my questions:
  1. I tend to be drawn to the larger "best bonus ever" SUBs and was considering the Amex Plat with the 150k SUB+$200 credit but not sure I really have expenses in the right categories to offset the AF. I would use the streaming credits and the lounge access on occasion but I also have some lounge access via the Venture X so that's not something I feel I can really count. I fly maybe 6x a year...mostly domestic. Should I apply?
  2. Since I recently opened the Ink card, would that potentially put me in decline territory for the Amex Plat?
  3. Considering the cards I have today, would appreciate thoughts on consolidating some of the ones with AFs especially if the Amex Platinum is an option. I fly Southwest a bit so that pretty much pays for itself. The Venture X's hotel credit also comes close to making it break even and the lounge access is nice. I use the Savor quite a bit for grocery and dining but could see moving to the Savor One. The Sapphire Preferred has good travel insurance and the transferability of the Ultimate Rewards but I don't use it that often. Anything you would recommend cancelling?
  4. Is there a better strategy / overall line up I should be considering / moving toward?

Thanks to everyone for your input and advice!

2023.03.27 04:13 imreallydoingmybest Nugs Streams Hitching

Long time lurker, first time poster — sorry in advance if this has already been asked.
I had no issues with the shows but now I seem to be having trouble with each of the livestreams. No matter what I do, I'm getting constant hitches that briefly stop both the video and the audio. My ideal setup is casting to a current-gen chromecast that's hooked into my TV, but I'm getting the same issue even when plugged in with an HDMI. I've tried using my phone, staying ~1min behind live to allow for buffering, and closing all other tabs and apps, and nothing seems to fix the problem.
TL;DR is this just a Nugs issue or is there something I can do to solve this minor but undoubtedly annoying problem? Thanks, y'all.

2023.03.27 03:55 _Joe_F_ Nick Wallis is writing a book

Nick Wallis has closely followed the events from both Depp v. NGN / Dan Wootton and Depp v. Heard.
Nick Wallis currently hosts transcripts that he paid (with support from donors) to be created for both trials. Documents related to both trials are also hosted.
I have no idea how the book will report these two trials, the evidence and testimony that will be presented, how misstatements or lies will be addressed, the legal maneuvering both inside and outside of court, the impact of social media, the dirty tricks that Adam Waldman was found to have been involved with, or any conclusions that will be reached.
Based upon articles and interviews Nick Wallis has written and given I think this book will be a fairly down the middle, fact based, retelling of the events.
I'm sure there will be many other books which come out over the years, but I do think that Nick Wallis has shown a specific interests and the book should be well researched.
I do hope that any conclusions reached will be informed by more than just what was said in both trials. There is a world of information which exists outside of what was presented in court and that information can and should inform opinions.
Also, if Nick Wallis happens to read DeepDelusion or deppVheardtrial, I would like to personally thank him for creating the transcripts. Linking f'in YouTube videos when what you need is a transcript is just ridiculous. description of the book below.
Well, if the description is accurate, the tone of the book may be more about the lurid details and less about what the evidence says and how the evidence supports or refutes claims made by both Johnny Depp and Amber Heard. Will have to wait an see if the marketing matches what shows up on the page.
Is Johnny Depp a monstrous wife-beater or the victim of Amber Heard's abuse?
Depp v Heard:The Unreal Story is the definitive account of Depp and Heard's disastrous relationship and their epic legal battles, written by the only journalist to cover both trials in the UK and US.
Using court documents, witness testimony and contemporaneous evidence, Nick Wallis has pieced together all the violence, drug-taking and wild extravagance to reconstruct who did what, where and when. Nick explains why a UK court decided the abuse allegations against Johnny Depp were substantially true and why a jury in Virgina decided Amber Heard was lying.
The book dives into the online culture war which enveloped this story and investigates some of its more bizarre elements - the poo in the marital bed, the Australian dog-smuggling fiasco and the night Johnny Depp lost part of his finger. Depp v Heard: The Unreal Story is written in the same page-turning style as Nick's first book. The Great Post Office Scandal. It asks challenging questions about the realities of abuse and how lurid allegations are refracted through the media and the courts.
If you took an interest in either trial and want to know what really happened on the private planes, island retreats and luxury compounds, this book will guide you through every significant moment of the story, in unflinching detail, all the way to its dramatic conclusion.

2023.03.27 03:53 proto-x-lol [Feature Request] Disable auto-update for Discord on Windows 7/Windows 8.1 once Electron reaches version 23 and later

With Windows 7 being already End of Life in Early 2020 (2023 for the Extended Security Updates) and Windows 8.1 also reaching end of support earlier this year, I believe it's time the Discord development team fixes one occurring and serious bug that is currently on older versions of macOS.
Normally once Discord does the automatic update thing, it does not CHECK to see what OS version you are using, for example one user is running OS X Yosemite 10.10 with all the latest updates for that OS. Once Discord automatically updates to the next version, that version won't work on OS X Yosemite and a red stop sign will show on that Discord icon. Clicking on it will it won't do anything other than saying "Discord has encountered a problem or is corrupted".
This is essentially poor programming and extremely dangerous to the user's system as running incompatible apps on an older OS without an actual block in place can mess up the user's device. Hell, it shouldn't be allowed to update to the incompatible version in the first place.
Basically, what I am asking for is that Auto-update should be essentially disabled for Discord on operating systems that have reached end of life and that the next version of Discord isn't going to work on it.
Basically, this screenshot below is what is considered proper programming. Microsoft Edge for example will stop updating to the next version (110) since Windows 7 isn't supported and is stuck on version 109. It will also display a warning saying that there will be no more updates and tells the user to upgrade the OS.
But if this was Discord with the way it works on macOS, it would update to the next version without a block in place and may corrupt system files because a block was not placed correctly. This behavior on macOS where Discord updates to an incompatible version due to auto-updates is a serious bug that has not been addressed for some reason.
This isn't just an issue specific to Discord. Steam for Windows XP and Windows Vista did this and essentially updated to the next release via forced auto-update, completely breaking Steam on these operating systems. You might ask, why would anyone run such an old OS in the first place? Well, that's because there might be some really old games that may just only work on Windows XP systems or even Vista but it won't work properly on Windows 7 or Windows 10 for some reason. That is a valid reason too. But the point is, many of these big programs like Steam are essentially doing something that's considered bad practice. Updating to the next version that is simply not compatible with the OS.

2023.03.27 03:22 CazOnReddit A (Brief and Scattered) 2023 Raptors Offseason Preview: Non-Raptors Free Agents Edition

Let's get this right off the bat: This year's class of free agents is a pretty weak one; beyond James Harden and that flat earth weirdo (neither of whom are affordable as-is, both of whom that are unlikely to want to become a Raptor especially with the rumors that Harden wants to return to Houston), there aren't many high-end, All-Star or borderline-level talents on the market and with the Raptors looking to compete/having to due to the light protections on their 2024 first, this is not an ideal circumstance for the team to improve in the offseason without trading away some of their current bench or even one of their starters, even with a historically grand MLE for them to take advantage of if they can stay under the tax/above the cap as they've done over the past few seasons.
In fact, the Raptors very own UFAs are some of the names at the top of the list and likely to be targeted by various teams with cap space, most notably Fred VanVleet who is looking for a sizeable, long-term deal after signing with Klutch, whom the Orlando Magic have reportedly been interested in acquiring as they have the cap space to sign him outright. We'll ignore the likes of VanVleet, Banton, Trent and Poeltl for the moment and take a look a brief look at some non-Raptors players before the 2023 free agency picture becomes more clear for the team overall.
The Raptors have 2 main needs beyond re-signing or extending their current players:
  1. A true, NBA-caliber backup point guard
  2. 3-point shooting off the bench/in the starting lineup/in general lineups due to lacking depth in that area
With that in mind, let's go over some of the names that will be RFAs/UFAs that will be available who could fulfill some of those needs. Do keep in mind that for the players mentioned for any sign and trade that salary-matching will be ignored for the purposes of this list and no trades are going to be proposed. Additionally, keep in mind that even amongst the "best" available candidates that none of them are a perfect fit or have their flaws i.e. one might be a great 3-point shooter but amongst the worst defenders in the league. If the available pool of realistic candidates were better, they'd likely have to be acquired in a sign & trade due to a larger contract.
Speaking of which: Most of the names mentioned here are ones that I consider to be "realistic" to an extent, though not necessarily likely overall i.e. Jerami Grant would be a great pickup due to his 3-point shooting and overall solid defense, no he is not even worth considering because his next contract will be way more than the team can afford and he's unlikely to want to come to the Raptors when the Blazers can re-sign him to a larger deal due to possessing his Bird Rights. See also: The Raptors aren't getting pending RFA Cameron Johnson despite how beneficial his 3-point shooting would be for the team.
Additionally, just because a player is mentioned here does not mean i'm in favor of signing them; there are a couple of names of players I would be hesitant to sign due to various off-court issues. This is meant to be a general overview of the available players that fit the above description in some capacity. That said, I will be mentioning those allegations for the players in question because I personally find it distasteful to overlook that just as I find it distasteful when people talk about signing Kyrie to their team given all the heinous stuff he's said and done.
With that in mind, here is a brief breakdown of the 2023 offseason's free agents.
Most likely aka. MLE Candidates
Note: The 2023 MLE is projected to be around $11.37 million; the player can be signed for a maximum of 2 years.
Seth Curry (SG): 3-point specialist (career average of 43% from 3), turning 33 years old. UFA for the Brooklyn Nets. Obligatory "fuck Brooklyn".
Lonnie Walker IV (SG): 36% 3 point shooter, below-average defender. Has been having a career year with the Lakers but is a UFA.
Patrick Beverley (PG): Lifetime hater of Chris Paul, walking flagrant foul but overall tough/competitive defender.
Jalen McDaniels (SF): Inconsistent shooter. Versatile on defense (though not as versatile/good as the other McDaniels with a first name starting with "J"). Name was mentioned around the trade deadline as a player the Raptors were interested in, hence them being included in this section. UFA for the Philadelphia 76ers.
Stretching A Bit (Money, Fit, Option Concerns)
Caris LeVert (SG): Inconsistent shooter but most recent season has seen him shoot 38% on 4 3s a night. Has missed significant time in the past few seasons due to health issues, making it difficult to say what his next contract will be. UFA for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Harrison Barnes (SF/PF): Career 38% shooter from 3. Championship-experience-having veteran who is turning 31 but has also been integral to the Kings return to the playoffs so it's hard to say what his next contract will be like.
Bruce Brown (PG/SG): Has a player option but unclear if they will decline it or leave with the Nuggets being a championship contender this yeagoing forward with a healthy Jokic/Murray/MPJ. Solid backup point guard and great defender. Has been shooting well in his past 2 seasons (38% average over the past 2 seasons) but on a limited clip of around 2 3s a game.
Russell Westbrook (PG): Has been impactful as a point guard for the Clippers but sample size of games is limited and he's not closing in most games due to his poor defense. Could be interesting as a bench point to push the pace of the game given the Raptors having the highest forcing of turnovers in the league but Westbrook cannot shoot, often leading to teams slagging him off/the team fielding Westbrook playing 4 on 5.
Tre Jones (PG): Restricted free agent for the San Antonio Spurs. Good ball-handler but may be outside of the Raptors MLE given him filling in the point-guard-shaped hole left by the Dejounte Murray trade with solid play since.
Nickeil Alexander-Walker (SG): Restricted free agent for the Minnesota Timberwolves. Streaky shooter who has been having a turbulent year after being traded to his 3rd team (Blazers, Jazz, then Timberwolves) in 2 seasons.
Naz Reid (PF/C): As a 33% shooter from 3, Naz does not fit in with the team's needs (they're a stretch to call them a stretch big even if they shoot 3s better than any Raptors player) but they're being included because they're 6'9 and the advanced stats love Reid (and this front office loves their players that advanced stats love). Averages an impressive 17/7/2/1/1 when starting.
Least likely candidates aka. Sign & Tradeables (Mostly)
Note: Player has to want to come here even if they are an RFA as they are not under any obligation to agree to be traded to the Raptors
Kristaps "Tingus Pingus" Porzingis (PF/C): Stretch big, likely to decline their 23/24 player option in favor of a long-term contract. Injury-prone "unicorn" & contract would be costly/sacrifice significant flexibility. Would otherwise not be worth mentioning given those circumstances but does warrant special mention as the Wizards were interested in Fred VanVleet during this year's deadline and the Raptors were interested in acquiring Kristaps at the 2022 deadline but declined due to the Mavericks asking for Trent in addition to Dragic and the Raptors 2022 first-round pick.
Note: KP has significant off-court allegations regarding sexual assault.
Christian Wood (PF/C): 3-point bucket getter, subpar defender though his effort on defense has been more notable in his most recent season. UFA for the Dallas Mavericks, would cost too much to acquire without it being a sign and trade.
Coby White (PG/SG): Inconsistent shooter, decent defender who has gotten better as of late. Bulls have sent mixed signals about his future in Chicago. Restricted free agent.
Malik Beasley (SG): Streaky shooter, would need to be a sign and trade if his option is declined or a trade if his team option is picked up.
Jaxson Hayes (PF/C): 23 year-old center whose free-throw shooting suggests untapped potential for 3-point shooting but off-court sentencing for domestic abuse (aka. not allegations, he was sentenced for said domestic incident) and a poor overall season make his candidacy as a buy-low option highly unappealing. May even be a UFA if the Pelicans don't extend him a qualifying offer due to those diminishing factors.
Players who are UFAs that the Raptors have higher ambitions than to sign them
Goran Dragic (PG): Shush yourself

I am interested in installing LineageOS on my OP9P. The reason for doing this is the wonky 5G mess I am getting on it using Oxygen OS. Here is what I mean; Currently, I am on the Boost Mobile network (ATT side). When using the OP9P the phone shows that I am on their 4G network. However, when I put the sim card in my Google Pixel 6a, I get 5G. This seems like the OP9P is missing a band or something, but when I get an ATT prepaid, and put in in my OP9P and Pixel 6a I get 5GE. My only conclusion is that OP9P is not reading the signal right. Will putting LOS on my phone fix this and open up the bands on the phone?

The 5 Biggest Opportunities Making Cryptocurrency Great Again & a few pointers on how to do it
Originally Published:
Prices plummeting, inflation running rampant, regulators cracking down, protocols imploding, scams leveraging other scams, and institutions collapsing… the perfect mixture of pain to signal… a market bottom 👀?!
For many people around the world, 2022 will go down in history as one of the most difficult investment years.
As the dust settles & investors begin to regain confidence, it is extremely important to front-run everybody & capture as much of the upside as possible.
Regardless of the market cycle (bull or bear), new ideas are always popping up & brave investors are always willing to take a chance when they see the opportunity is right.
Well, opportunities are knocking & it is our job to understand which door(s) we must open.
Before we dive in, let's first define a few key points that constitute a “big” opportunity:
TAM (total addressable market) The actual size of the market. This includes both the number of users & the monetary value.
Growth potential Will the TAM grow moving forward or will the market stay roughly the same size?
Competition Competition is a good thing because it means there is demand, however, if there is too much competition a market becomes saturated & returns are distributed horizontally. (we want vertical returns baby)
Desirability Who wants what & why? What are the most painful, underserved, & necessary ideas?
Most hated by regulators If they hate it, there must be a good reason. Governments hate things that can put them out of business. Government is a BIG business…
Totally missed by regulators Government moves very slowly. What are they missing that entrepreneurs can capitalize on?
-Biggest medium-term potential. -Not facing any regulatory headwinds at the moment. -Strong steady growth anticipated. -Modestly competitive landscape, no games/projects on the level of Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, or Runescape.
Gaming is one of the most intuitive sectors to be exploring for benefits from the coming market cycle. Built on tightly knit communities & almost entirely digital in its nature, gaming appeals to a broad audience of individuals who are prime to become users of digital assets.
This nascent sector of the regular economy will bring in $365.60 Billion in revenue this year & is expected to grow roughly ~7.17% per year.
One of the most lucrative possibilities in terms of cash flow due to massive margins.
There isn’t much pain here to solve with blockchain tech, but the potential of being disregarded by regulators will bring tons of attention here.
How to address the opportunities in gaming with crypto? NFTs primarily. In their current form, I colloquially refer to NFTs as “non-financialized tokens” because of their strong retail appeal; pictures of monkes are more relatable to regular people than the cold numbers on a trading terminal or spreadsheets. Gamers are typically not caught up in anything else much outside of their games — it would be best to keep it that way. Trying to financialize their processes with cryptocurrency will likely dis-incentivize people from playing the games with it’s complexity. However, building out online gaming guilds (DAOs) with the use of NFTs will garner stronger communities. Rewarding players with exotic in-game assets that are owned by them & can be transferred between games holds a lot of promise. \ Personal note:* Don’t look for promises of fully on-chain games (that is resource intensive & not sustainable or scalable, yet) consider looking for infrastructure providers (ENJ), Guilds (YGG) or possibly in-game objects such as metaverse lands (Otherdeeds).
-Biggest long-term potential. -In a regulatory gray-space (not hated, nor loved) -Always going to grow over time (assuming for no cataclysmic events) -Currently VERY FEW competitors (Maple finance, Centrifuge, GoldFinch)
Nearly impossible to accurately pinpoint the true size of this market, but the sums are calculated in the Trillions. Real World Assets represent the vast majority of all the world's wealth. This includes everything from government bonds to real estate, to company debt & everything else in between.
This segment has been receiving some flack/pushback from notable people in the industry namely
Andre Cronje talking about the “death of RWA”. His point is valid that this category is NOT TRUE DECENTRALIZATION, however, I cannot help but see the incredible potential as it continues to flourish.
How to capitalize on the opportunities in RWA tokenization? This sector will obviously be built with a lot of overlap into tradfi. So capturing this opportunity might be most suited for companies/enterprises, more so than individuals. Nonetheless, there are a few interesting ways for people to benefit; - go to an existing RWA tokenization operator & leverage your business history to take out an on-chain loan - take advantage of early stage incentive programs for participating in lending through these operators - build out a DECENTRALIZED RWA tokenization engine/protocol run by a DAO \ Personal note:* I do not own & will not recommend buying the tokens of these platforms, however it might be worthwhile to not completely rule them out. ( CFG GFI MPL)
-Largest risk-adjusted opportunity. -HATED by regulators. -Strong steady growth is almost certain. -Difficult competitive landscape, due to extreme technical requirements in knowledge, skill, & funding.
The hottest segment for those looking to stick it to the government.
The key word in this is “decentralized”. Centralized stablecoin issuers will be faced with the same regulatory issues as banks & other traditional money service businesses. Those issues will trickle down to consumers & ultimately serve no real benefit to the end users.
The task is enormous & many brilliant people have attempted to solve this problem. Of those attempts, out came a graveyard filled with ≥ 23 failed ambitious projects. It would be softly said that nearly every one of the failures in this space has resulted in catastrophe for its participants.
There are a tiny handful of projects that can serve as a “successful” case study in the space that comes to mind: - MakerDAO - with their DAI stablecoin. - Frax Finance - with the FRAX stablecoin - Reserve Rights - with the RSV stablecoin - Decentralized USD - with the USDD stablecoin
How to capitalize on the opportunities in Stablecoins? Stablecoins are the most nuanced segment in terms of capturing value because there is no real direct growth here. Growth in Stablecoin’s represents an increase in supply/underlying collateral. Capturing the upside here depends on creativity & which side of the fence you want to be on; creator or consumer. - Leverage new expanded collateral models, - explore/test new algorithms - expand cashflow opportunities of stablecoin protocols to sustain market shocks & unprecedented failures. (i.e. have a protocol BUY its own stable-assets to serve as an emergency form of insurance pool ← still not financial advice) - lend/borrow, with cross-collateralization, to maximize yield (still NFA) - have exposure to the protocols overseeing the minting of decentralized stablecoins (MKR/RSR)
-Uncapped & untapped market. -Can’t be/won't be stopped by regulators. -Growth potential is directly tied to human population & development 😲 -Modest competitive landscape with no clear leader or solution available.
Decentralized Identity is still in its infancy & by the looks of it will require a multitude of separate solutions/issuers.
This is the wild west for innovators in the space.
As it stands there are ~103 different methods that are recognized by the Web3 alliance for building decentralized identity. One of the most counterintuitive, but potentially exciting ideas that was brought to surface by Vitalik Buterin is the concept of non-transferable tokens called (SBT) Soul-Bound Tokens.
How to capitalize on the opportunities in decentralized identity (D.ID)? There are actually a multitude of creative ways to take advantage & capture this opportunity; mostly through the use of NFT’s - Join early stage projects building some form of decentralized social media & capture the namespace. - Leverage your existing web2 reputation to become a thought leader on early stage platforms - leverage as many web3 platforms as possible & farm the incentive tokens - launch a project in this space & look for funding (if you have an actual solution) \Some projects to gain inspiration from:* Civic (CVC), Serto, Nametag, Fractal \* Great primers on D.ID. →* Consensys
-Largest Short-term opportunity. -HATED on by regulators. -Growth is always going to fluctuate as old projects die & new ones arrive -EXTREMELY competitive.
Decentralized finance is the future of all finance; it is simply a matter of time until we drop the first half of the term & just call it finance.
This segment of the crypto economy is always ripe with opportunity (even in bear markets). Primarily because it is the most competitive segment of all the others (in terms of total number of projects & the rate at which new projects pop up).
The interesting thing here is the reason for so much competition… It is super easy to spin up a “DEFI” project…
Innovation is/has been basically non-existent.
Most of the projects that you will find are going to be copy-pasta clones of one another with some minor adjustments.
Nevertheless, the space is flush with attention & incredible metrics: - Floating a market cap ~$100B (source) - Over ~$90B TVL (total value locked) - Exists across >130 different blockchain ecosystems
How to address the opportunities in DEFI? Simple. Dive into everything without doing any research & hope for the best… THIS IS A JOKE! DO NOT DO THIS! As in the case with any other trade/investment there is one golden rule to guarantee profits: GET IN EARLY while Marketcap is LOW & ride or die baby. Some other things that might be worth trying - participating in protocols before they have a token & hope for an airdrop - provide liqudity to promising crypto pairs on DEXs (before price skyrocket) - NFA: leverage yield & build compounding systems across chains (advanced) - research strong incentive programs & farm their token \ leading projects:* AAVE, dydx, Synthetix, 1inch, Balancer, SushiSwap
These are the 5 sectors of opportunity that I am currently watching; there certainly are a few other very promising segments with massive potential that I will be writing about in the near future:
- Privacy (ZKsnarks/rollups, etc..) - AI meets blockchain - Oracles & data verification - Multi-chain bridges
but as I have learned the hard way; It is better to stay focused & catch some gains rather than getting lost in the chaos & missing everything.
Thank you for reading; I hope this information serves you well on your crypto journey!
See you all on the other side! 🥂

2023.03.27 03:00 farning10 Chat GPT and I design and implement a flight simulator using Rust and Godot

Below is a conversation where chatGPT and I design a rust flight simulator. I had already planned to do a similar project to this myself, so I though it would be an interesting opportunity to see how well chatGPT can solve the problem.

I would say the results are mixed overall. ChatGPT needed a lot of guidance to get to the design I wanted and I believe it would take a lot of additional work to integrate what ChatGPT wrote into any kind of real project. Still, I was pleasantly surprised at what it could accomplish with a bit of pointing in the right direction.

Apologies for Formatting :P
📷Help me design an API for simulating flight mechanics in rust language and rendering the result through the godot game engine.
Sure, I can help you design an API for simulating flight mechanics in Rust language and rendering the result through the Godot game engine. Here are the steps you can follow:
  1. Define the API endpoints: You need to define the API endpoints that will be used to interact with the flight simulator. For example, you can create an endpoint to initialize the simulation, an endpoint to set the input parameters (such as velocity, acceleration, and direction), and an endpoint to retrieve the output parameters (such as altitude, pitch, and roll).
  2. Define the input and output data structures: You need to define the data structures that will be used to represent the input and output parameters of the flight simulator. For example, you can create a struct to represent the input parameters and another struct to represent the output parameters.
  3. Implement the flight mechanics: You need to implement the flight mechanics that will be used to simulate the flight of the aircraft. You can use existing libraries, such as nalgebra, to implement the physics calculations required for the flight simulator.
  4. Integrate with Godot game engine: You need to integrate the flight simulator with the Godot game engine to render the output parameters of the simulation. You can use the Godot Rust bindings to interact with the game engine and display the output parameters, such as altitude, pitch, and roll.
  5. Test the API: Once you have implemented the API, you should test it thoroughly to ensure that it works as expected. You can use unit tests to test the individual components of the API and integration tests to test the interaction between the flight simulator and the Godot game engine.
Here's a sample code that demonstrates how to create an API endpoint for initializing the simulation:
rustCopy code
use rocket::serde::{Deserialize, Serialize}; #[derive(Debug, Clone, Serialize, Deserialize)] struct SimulationInitRequest { aircraft_type: String, initial_altitude: f32, initial_velocity: f32, initial_acceleration: f32, } #[derive(Debug, Clone, Serialize, Deserialize)] struct SimulationInitResponse { id: u32, status: String, } #[post("/api/simulation/init", data = "")] fn init_simulation(request: Json) -> Json { // Implement the initialization logic here let id = 1; let status = "initialized".to_string(); Json(SimulationInitResponse { id, status }) } 
This code defines an API endpoint /api/simulation/initthat receives a POSTrequest with a SimulationInitRequestJSON payload. The endpoint returns a SimulationInitResponseJSON payload with the simulation ID and status. You can use this endpoint to initialize the simulation and obtain the simulation ID for subsequent API requests.
I hope this helps you get started with designing your flight simulator API in Rust language and integrating it with the Godot game engine!
📷why did you choose to expose the simulation through a REST API? That seems like a strange choice to me.
You're right that a REST API may not be the best choice for simulating flight mechanics. REST APIs are typically used for stateless communication between clients and servers over HTTP, and may not be the most efficient or performant way to simulate real-time flight mechanics.
Instead, a more appropriate approach would be to use a real-time communication protocol, such as WebSockets, to send and receive data between the flight simulator and the Godot game engine. WebSockets allow for bidirectional, low-latency communication between the server and the client, making them ideal for real-time applications such as flight simulators.
Here's a sample code that demonstrates how to use WebSockets to send and receive data between the flight simulator and the Godot game engine:
rustCopy code
use std::collections::HashMap; use ws::{listen, CloseCode, Handler, Handshake, Message, Result, Sender}; struct FlightSimulator { out: Sender, } impl Handler for FlightSimulator { fn on_open(&mut self, _: Handshake) -> Result<()> { Ok(()) } fn on_message(&mut self, msg: Message) -> Result<()> { let input: HashMap = serde_json::from_str(msg.as_text()?)?; // Implement the flight mechanics here let output: HashMap = simulate_flight(&input); self.out.send(serde_json::to_string(&output)?)?; Ok(()) } fn on_close(&mut self, _: CloseCode, _: &str) { // Handle close event } } fn main() -> Result<()> { listen("", out FlightSimulator { out })?; Ok(()) } 
This code uses the wscrate to listen for WebSocket connections on port 3000. When a client connects to the WebSocket server, the on_openmethod is called. When the client sends a message, the on_messagemethod is called, where the flight mechanics are simulated based on the input data received from the client. The output data is then sent back to the client using the out.sendmethod. Finally, when the client disconnects, the on_closemethod is called.
Overall, using WebSockets or another real-time communication protocol is a better choice than REST API for simulating flight mechanics, as it allows for low-latency, bidirectional communication between the server and client.
📷I am not going to use a web browser at all for this simulator. Please reconsider your suggestion without using anything that will also require a web browser to be used, such as websockets.
Thank you for the clarification. In that case, if you don't want to use WebSockets or any other browser-based communication protocol, one option would be to use a local inter-process communication (IPC) mechanism, such as Unix domain sockets or named pipes.
Here's a sample code that demonstrates how to use Unix domain sockets to send and receive data between the flight simulator and the Godot game engine:
rustCopy code
use std::io::prelude::*; use std::os::unix::net::{UnixListener, UnixStream}; fn main() -> std::io::Result<()> { // Create a Unix domain socket listener let listener = UnixListener::bind("/tmp/flight.sock")?; // Listen for incoming connections for stream in listener.incoming() { // Spawn a new thread to handle each connection std::thread::spawn(move { // Handle the connection handle_connection(stream.unwrap()); }); } Ok(()) } fn handle_connection(mut stream: UnixStream) { // Read the input data from the stream let mut buf = [0; 1024]; buf).unwrap(); let input: HashMap = serde_json::from_slice(&buf).unwrap(); // Simulate the flight mechanics based on the input data let output: HashMap = simulate_flight(&input); // Write the output data to the stream let response = serde_json::to_vec(&output).unwrap(); stream.write(&response).unwrap(); stream.flush().unwrap(); } 
This code creates a Unix domain socket listener on the path /tmp/flight.sock. When a client connects to the socket, a new thread is spawned to handle the connection. The handle_connectionfunction reads the input data from the socket, simulates the flight mechanics based on the input data, and writes the output data back to the socket.
On the client side, you can use a Unix domain socket client to send input data to the flight simulator and receive output data. Here's a sample code that demonstrates how to send input data to the flight simulator and receive output data:
rustCopy code
use std::io::prelude::*; use std::os::unix::net::UnixStream; fn main() -> std::io::Result<()> { // Connect to the Unix domain socket let mut stream = UnixStream::connect("/tmp/flight.sock")?; // Send the input data to the flight simulator let input = HashMap::new(); let request = serde_json::to_vec(&input).unwrap(); stream.write(&request).unwrap(); stream.flush().unwrap(); // Read the output data from the flight simulator let mut buf = [0; 1024]; buf).unwrap(); let output: HashMap = serde_json::from_slice(&buf).unwrap(); Ok(()) } 
This code connects to the Unix domain socket at /tmp/flight.sock, sends the input data to the flight simulator, and reads the output data from the socket.
I hope this solution meets your requirements of not using any browser-based communication protocol and helps you implement your flight simulator API.
📷This simulation must run on the microsoft windows operating system, so a unix socket cannot be used. Please reconsider your suggestion so that it can run on the windows operating system.
Thank you for the clarification. In that case, you can use named pipes instead of Unix domain sockets for inter-process communication on Windows. Here's how you can modify the Rust code to use named pipes:
rustCopy code
use std::io::prelude::*; use std::os::windows::io::{AsRawHandle, FromRawHandle}; use std::sync::mpsc::channel; use std::thread; use winapi::um::namedpipeapi::{ConnectNamedPipe, CreateNamedPipeW}; use winapi::um::winbase::{FILE_FLAG_FIRST_PIPE_INSTANCE, PIPE_ACCESS_DUPLEX, PIPE_TYPE_BYTE, PIPE_WAIT}; use winapi::um::winnt::{HANDLE, GENERIC_READ, GENERIC_WRITE}; fn main() -> std::io::Result<()> { ... } .... 
📷is it possible to directly integrate the godot part and the rust part through linking a library?
Yes, it is possible to directly integrate the Godot part and the Rust part by linking a Rust library to a Godot module. Here's how you can do it:
  1. Create a Rust library that exposes the flight simulation functionality through a C-compatible interface. You can use Rust's #[no_mangle]attribute to ensure that the function names are not mangled by the Rust compiler. For example:
rustCopy code
#[no_mangle] pub extern "C" fn simulate_flight(input: *const u8, input_len: usize, output: *mut u8, output_len: usize) -> usize { // Convert the input data to a Rust struct let input: HashMap = serde_json::from_slice(unsafe { std::slice::from_raw_parts(input, input_len) }).unwrap(); // Simulate the flight mechanics based on the input data let output_data = simulate_flight(&input); // Convert the output data to a byte array let output_data = serde_json::to_vec(&output_data).unwrap(); let output_data_len = output_data.len(); // Copy the output data to the output buffer unsafe { std::ptr::copy_nonoverlapping(output_data.as_ptr(), output, std::cmp::min(output_len, output_data_len)); } // Return the length of the output data output_data_len } 
  1. Build the Rust library as a C-compatible dynamic library. You can do this by specifying the cdylibcrate type in your Cargo.tomlfile:
tomlCopy code
[lib] name = "flight_simulator" crate-type = ["cdylib"] 
  1. Create a Godot module that links to the Rust library. You can do this by creating a gdmodulefile that specifies the Rust library as a dependency:
gdscriptCopy code
[dependencies] windows="0.19.0" [general] singleton=false load_once=true module_library="res://addons/flight_simulatoflight_simulator.dll" 
  1. Use the OS.dynamic_loadfunction to load the Rust library at runtime, and use the OS.get_symbolfunction to get a pointer to the simulate_flightfunction. You can then call this function to simulate the flight mechanics and get the output data. For example:
gdscriptCopy code
var lib = OS.dynamic_load("res://addons/flight_simulatoflight_simulator.dll") var simulate_flight = lib.get_symbol("simulate_flight") var input = { "throttle": 0.5, "elevator": 0.1, "aileron": -0.2, "rudder": 0.3 } var input_data = JSON.print(input) var input_len = input_data.length() var output_data = OS.allocate(1024) var output_len = call_func(simulate_flight, input_data, input_len, output_data, 1024) var output = JSON.parse(OS.get_data_pool().get_string_from_utf8(output_data, output_len)) print(output) 
Note that you will need to adjust the paths and function names to match your project structure and Rust code.
📷Ok good idea. I will use that approach. Now tell me how best I can structure the API to ensure that rendering a large number of objects in godot will performant when they are managed entirely by the rust dynamic simulation.
To ensure that rendering a large number of objects in Godot will be performant when they are managed entirely by the Rust dynamic simulation, you can use a few strategies:
  1. Use a batching technique to group similar objects together and reduce the number of draw calls. This can be done by organizing the objects into small groups (e.g., by their location or type) and rendering them together. You can also use techniques like instancing to efficiently render large numbers of identical objects.
  2. Use a data-oriented approach to store the object data in a way that is efficient for rendering. This means storing the data in contiguous arrays (e.g., using a structure of arrays instead of an array of structures) and minimizing cache misses. You can also use techniques like spatial partitioning (e.g., quad trees or octrees) to efficiently cull objects that are not visible and reduce the number of objects that need to be rendered.
  3. Use a multi-threaded approach to offload the rendering work to separate threads and minimize the impact on the simulation performance. This means dividing the work of rendering the objects into separate threads (e.g., using a thread pool) and synchronizing the data between the Rust simulation and the Godot engine.
  4. Minimize the amount of data that needs to be transferred between the Rust simulation and the Godot engine. This means only sending the data that is necessary for rendering (e.g., position, orientation, and scale), and using efficient serialization techniques (e.g., binary serialization) to minimize the size of the data.
To implement these strategies, you can structure your API in a way that supports these optimizations. For example, you can expose functions in the Rust library that allow the Godot engine to query the position, orientation, and scale of the objects that need to be rendered. You can also expose functions that allow the Godot engine to query the simulation state (e.g., which objects are visible) and optimize the rendering accordingly. Additionally, you can use efficient serialization techniques (e.g., using a binary format like Protocol Buffers) to minimize the amount of data that needs to be transferred between the Rust simulation and the Godot engine.
By using these strategies and structuring your API in a way that supports them, you can ensure that rendering a large number of objects in Godot will be performant even when they are managed entirely by the Rust dynamic simulation.
📷Please construct a reasonably suitable API based on your suggestions
Sure, here is an example of a reasonably suitable API for your flight simulator:
rustCopy code
// Define a struct to represent the state of each object in the simulation struct ObjectState { position: (f32, f32, f32), orientation: (f32, f32, f32, f32), scale: f32, is_visible: bool, // Other simulation state data as needed } // Define a trait for the Rust simulation library to implement trait Simulation { // Get the current state of all objects in the simulation fn get_object_states(&self) -> Vec; // Set the state of a specific object in the simulation fn set_object_state(&mut self, id: u32, state: ObjectState); // Get the simulation time in milliseconds fn get_time_ms(&self) -> u64; } // Define a function to initialize the Rust simulation library and start the simulation loop fn start_simulation() -> impl Simulation { // Initialize the simulation state and return a struct that implements the Simulation trait // Start a separate thread to run the simulation loop } // Define a function to render the simulation in Godot fn render_simulation(objects: &[ObjectState]) { // Batch the objects by location or type // Use efficient data structures (e.g., structure of arrays) for the object data // Use culling techniques (e.g., frustum culling) to reduce the number of objects that need to be rendered // Use instancing to efficiently render large numbers of identical objects // Use a multi-threaded approach to offload the rendering work to separate threads } // Define a function to update the simulation state based on user input from Godot fn update_simulation(id: u32, state: ObjectState) { // Update the state of the specified object in the Rust simulation library } // Define a function to handle API requests from Godot fn handle_api_request(request: String) -> String { // Parse the request and call the appropriate function // Use efficient serialization techniques (e.g., Protocol Buffers) to minimize the amount of data transferred between Godot and Rust // Return the response to Godot }This API defines a Simulationtrait that allows the Rust library to manage the state of the objects in the simulation and provides functions to get and set the object state. It also defines functions to start the simulation loop, render the simulation in Godot, and handle API requests from Godot. By using efficient data structures, culling techniques, and multi-threading, the rendering of a large number of objects in Godot can be optimized for performance. Additionally, using efficient serialization techniques minimizes the amount of data transferred between Godot and Rust, further improving performance. 
📷Nice, now please implement the simulation dynamics. I want rigid-body newtonian physics model. With collision detection. Use an octree to improve performance of collision detection. Please use quaternions to represent orientation and rotations. Please ensure the model can use a configurable timestep. Please use SI units for physics calculations when necessary and try to add comments which specify what quantities and units variables are intended to represent.
Sure, here is an example implementation of the simulation dynamics in Rust:

📷if you are done with your simulation implementation tell me that you are done. If not, please continue outputting it.
I'm sorry, I have completed the implementation of the Rigid Body Dynamics simulation in Rust language. Please let me know if you have any questions or if there is anything else I can assist you with.
📷Can you give me an example of a rigid body for this simulation?
Sure, here is an example of a simple RigidBody for this simulation:
rustCopy code
let mut rigid_body = RigidBody::new( Vector3::new(0.0, 0.0, 0.0), // position (m) Vector3::new(0.0, 0.0, 0.0), // velocity (m/s) Vector3::new(0.0, 0.0, 0.0), // acceleration (m/s^2) Quaternion::identity(), // orientation (quaternion) Vector3::new(0.0, 0.0, 0.0), // angular velocity (rad/s) Vector3::new(0.0, 0.0, 0.0), // angular acceleration (rad/s^2) 1.0, // mass (kg) Matrix3::identity(), // inertia tensor (kg*m^2) false, // is static (boolean) ); 
In this example, the RigidBody is initially located at the origin (0, 0, 0) with zero initial velocity, acceleration, angular velocity, and angular acceleration. It has a mass of 1 kilogram and is not a static object (i.e. it is free to move and can be affected by external forces and torques). The inertia tensor is initialized to the identity matrix, which assumes the RigidBody has uniform density and is symmetric about its center of mass.
📷Please create a new rigid body representing a simple cessna 150 airplane sitting at the origin.
Sure, here's an example of creating a new RigidBody representing a simple Cessna 150 airplane sitting at the origin:
rustCopy code
// Define the dimensions of the Cessna 150 airplane in meters let length = 7.31; // Length of the airplane (m) let wingspan = 10.16; // Wingspan of the airplane (m) let height = 2.69; // Height of the airplane (m) // Define the mass and inertia tensor of the airplane in SI units let mass = 670.0; // Mass of the airplane (kg) let ixx = 3435.0; // Moment of inertia about x-axis (kg*m^2) let iyy = 16020.0; // Moment of inertia about y-axis (kg*m^2) let izz = 18200.0; // Moment of inertia about z-axis (kg*m^2) let ixy = 0.0; // Product of inertia about xy-plane (kg*m^2) let ixz = 0.0; // Product of inertia about xz-plane (kg*m^2) let iyz = 235.0; // Product of inertia about yz-plane (kg*m^2) // Define the initial position and orientation of the airplane let position = Vector3::new(0.0, 0.0, 0.0); let orientation = Quaternion::from_euler_angles(0.0, 0.0, 0.0); // Define the initial velocity, acceleration, and angular velocity of the airplane let velocity = Vector3::new(0.0, 0.0, 0.0); let acceleration = Vector3::new(0.0, 0.0, 0.0); let angular_velocity = Vector3::new(0.0, 0.0, 0.0); // Define the initial angular acceleration of the airplane let angular_acceleration = Vector3::new(0.0, 0.0, 0.0); // Define the new RigidBody representing the Cessna 150 airplane let mut cessna_150 = RigidBody::new( position, velocity, acceleration, orientation, angular_velocity, angular_acceleration, mass, Matrix3::new( ixx, ixy, ixz, ixy, iyy, iyz, ixz, iyz, izz, ), false, // not a static object ); 
This example defines the dimensions of the Cessna 150 airplane in meters, as well as the mass and inertia tensor in SI units. The initial position and orientation are set to the origin and no initial velocity, acceleration, or angular velocity or acceleration are applied.

2023.03.27 02:54 wombatouthere Swooning for Summer - List of handbags for summer travel

This list is non-exhaustive and purely my own opinion and taste. Read at your own pleasure or distaste.
In the northern hemisphere, summer is just around the corner and I have seen many ladies posting and asking questions about summer bags. I had some time this weekend and compiled a list of some of my favourite classic and current summertime and summer holiday handbags.
Beach bags (large size bags for your water bottle, book, sunglasses and cover-up):
  1. Christian Dior Book Tote
There are so many variations of this bag, and every year they release new gorgeous prints. The first time I saw this bag in the flesh was in Puerto Rico at the Ritz Carlton Resort. I fell in love with the bag straight away. The owner looked GORGEOUS, but the bag looked better! I have searched on the TRR and VC etc. to try to find an auth in my budget, but to no prevail. Unfortunately, I do not think this is a bag that will rep well because of the complex patterning. If you have this bag, please post your gorgeous beauties below. I have seen several sellers have this in their albums. This is Rekay’s Album.
  1. Jacquemus- Le Panier Soli Fringe Raffia Top-Handle Bag
This bag is so fun. The fringing is to die for. I imagine this with oversized sunglasses and a gorgeous beach hat. SO chic. The versatility of it being shoulder or top handle is a great bonus. The lobster clasp also gives a slight sense of security.
  1. Chloe Woody Large Tote
I recently bought this as a rep for an upcoming holiday in the caribbean. I know some people think this bag to be plain/boring or trendy. I however think it has a classic look. I think the soft sand/white cotton and canvas blend of the material and tan leather is a clean look which is timeless. I purchased from Yiling Luxe, her album link pw: 331233
Special Mentions:

Night time bags (bags for the sushi restaurant on the beach,cocktails at the beach bar or if you’re brave enough the nightlcub- big enough to fit the essentials, small enough to look cute)
  1. Bottega Veneta- Jodie mini crystal-embellished intrecciato mesh tote
The jodie mini is gorgeous in every colour way BUT there is something about the embellishment that screams Miami nights in summer to me. This bag with a sexy heel and a tan will be a showstopper. I have not seen this exact bag in any seller albums but I have seen it in many other glam variations, see here.
  1. Balenciaga Hourglass XS sequined leather tote
I am not the biggest fan of the shape of this bag but the sequins get me. I am a bird that attracts to anything to everything shiny. This bag in pink, or a lime green would also be a cute addition to any night time outfit when on holiday.
  1. Gucci Dinoysus in Silver or Gold or anything! In the gold lame leather or the silver this is straight party vibes. I see this being a versatile piece for vegas nightlife, but also a fancy cocktail bar. This bag is not necessarily just a summer bag, but I think i would use this more in summer than winter. I have this in the black and I love that it fits my phone, card and lipstick.
Special mentions:
Travel bags- the one for the plane.
If you are an organised packer, or smart, or good at travelling lightly then maybe you would have a bag that works as both your beach bag and travel bag. I am however a terrible packer and I over pack and I hate having to make choices so I use a different bag for the airport travel.
  1. LV neverfull. Need I say more…
  2. Prada- Small Prada Symbole embroidered fabric handbag: This bag will get you in the holiday mood. If you are venturing somewhere with a short flight, it’s perfect. It will fit your wallet, waterbottle, book etc. I chose this because of the colour but you can obviously go the classic black, and in larger sizes too.
  3. Givenchy Medium Antigona Sport bag in coated canvas. This bag offers security. The zip makes me feel as though my passport is safe. It fits nicely under the chair infront or in the overhead locker. Black is also a great choice as marks and dirt are not as noticeable.
I have no special mentions here.
I would love to see what other people opt for when its summer time and time to travel. I hope this lists has at least one bag that you love, and inspires you to treat yourself. I don’t know about you but I am ready for a margarita in the sun!

2023.03.27 02:48 Treestop Is a lifetime ISA worth it, if planning to buy in London?

I'm looking into opening my first ISA and am currently comparing which type best suits me. I'm 24 and earn 40k. 6 months ago I was earning 25k, so trying to future-proof myself. I already have an employer-matched 4% pension, and the concept of a LISA for retirement seems a bit redundant to me.
I've read a few horror stories recently of house prices falling just outside the Lifetime ISA threshold, and I'm just curious if the general consensus is that it's still the best option. I wouldn't consider buying outside of London at this stage in my life, and I don't have any intention of buying within the next 5 years.
The majority of my savings is 5k, sitting within the Barclays rainy day saver (which offers 5.25% interest). Comparatively, cash ISAs aren't particularly attractive.
My main concern is I come from a fairly poor background, so I want to invest my money carefully as I don't have much of a safety net or future inheritance.
Is there a tried and tested route for an 'entry-level' ISA?

Constellation Phoenix Emerald: A Love Story
This ship is really awesome. It has a stylish look matched by none, teeth to face anything the universe cares to throw at it, and a comfortable interior one just wants to enjoy a good book in (and a drink!).
Rising over the Rings of Yela
We're going places!
The past is a bit of a fog, but the present is bright and clear
Arrived in one piece
off to a new dawn
