Sold all my MBLX today. Bulls make money, bears make money, pigs get slaughtered.

It was a hypy week that began Monday with the Press release you cited that simply named a long existing partnership and product but that played well to a public that "[did] not know that most plastic is made from petroleum products" and ended Friday with an appearance by the CEO on CNBC that also said nothing new to anyone who had read the prospectus. It felt very much like classic pre-lockup expiration hype.

It was a lovely ride.
