😳This is going to sound crazy…

Speaking at the annual Oslo Freedom Forum on Wednesday Jack Dorsey, Twitter co-founder, expressed his views on social media, free speech and algorithms.

Stating: “This is going to sound a little bit crazy, but I think the free speech debate is a complete distraction right now. I think the real debate should be about free will,”

This was later backed up by Elon Musk on X.

👵 Wisconsin pension fund buys Bitcoin… ETF

The first state pension fund invests in Bitcoin. Wisconsin’s pension fund has added bitcoin to its balance sheets, buying more than $160 million worth of shares in two newly approved ETFs.

While $160 million is a lot of money, Krause said it's a small fraction of Wisconsin's overall pension fund. At the end of December, SWIB held more than $155 billion in assets, with the vast majority of that representing assets in the Wisconsin Retirement System.
