Disclaimers and disclosures

Last updated 03/07/2018

Twitter is a challenging medium for a manager of an investment firm, since the character limit makes standard disclaimers impossible.  A suggestion that I took to heart, was to include a link to such disclaimers and disclosures in my twitter bio.  Relevant information will remain on this page, updated as appropriate, however all content is subject to change without notice.

I’m the CIO of BlockTower Capital.  We invest in and actively trade many cryptocurrencies.  We have the ability to take both long and short positions, and fairly frequently enter and exit positions.  Anything that I write about crypotocurrency represents a potential conflict of interest given my role as the manager of a cryptocurrency portfolio. The information included on Twitter or other public mediums is for general information purposes only.  Nothing that I write should be construed as, or relied upon as, investment, financial, legal, regulatory, accounting, tax or similar advice.  Nothing should be construed as a solicitation to invest in any security, future, or other financial product, and nothing herein should be construed as a recommendation to engage in any investment strategy or transaction. You should consult your own investment, legal, tax and/or similar professionals regarding your specific situation and any specific decisions.

An investment in any strategy involves a high degree of risk.  There is the possibility of loss and all investment involves risk including the loss of principal.  Any projections, forecasts and estimates are necessarily speculative in nature.  Matters they describe are subject to known (and unknown) risks, uncertainties and other unpredictable factors, many of which are beyond my knowledge or control.  Any data, calculations, or qualitative statements about the present or past may be erroneous. No representations or warranties are made as to the accuracy, reliability, or completeness of any statements.  All information is provided “as is”, without any warranty of any kind.  All statements are my personal opinion, unless otherwise specified.

    Ari, I really appreciate your position that Twitter is a challenging medium for investment communication. I’m with a startup, Coinsavage.com, that is building a platform for expert analysis in the crypto asset industry. We’re going to be launching a feature for independent 3rd party validation of experts in the next few weeks. In the meantime, I wanted to see if you would be open to sharing your post “Don’t Ignore the Competion” as an article on coinsavage.com. We will add a link back to the article, your twitter account, or any other channel that would help you. Happy to answer any questions at Doug@coinsavage.com. Thanks!

    How often does GS give you a heads up? Considering you have to report to them once a week,


    • Ari Paul says:

      Once a week? I get a heads up on the GS cafeteria’s offerings daily. And not just GS. I’m tapped into to every important bank and government’s lunch menus and get daily culinary briefings from all of them.
