1. Be clear. Your words may not be welcome. But they also won't be misunderstood. Elon Musk isn't the only one who excels in this department. SEC Chair Gensler has that superpower, too.

The market celebrated that serious institutional players were seeing value in the crypto ecosystem – even in assets and brands left for dead like FTT and FTX.
