The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 36


A little cooler in the market this week. Low-ball BTC entry points have been rewarded but a test of 10k and lower does seem likely. This week focuses on Alts as they generally continue to bleed-out against Bitcoin. Personally, I would advise patience – the time to trade out of Alts was 2 months ago.

In addition, this week I’d like to draw your attention to the Twitter section. There’s a lot of value to be extracted from curated Tweets -the constraints imposed by the medium (character limit) occasionally result in very elegantly constructed discussion pieces. The included Tweets range from a few words of witty observation to articles in a Tweet-storm format.


Picks of the Week

An article in a Tweet – well 22 of them discussing the current state of the Alt coin market and what may accrue value going forward. An insiders take on Libra also makes for an excellent investment of time.

Note on Sources:

Twitter & Reddit (cryptos current meta-brains) / Medium / Trybe / Hackernoon / Whaleshares / TIMM and so on/ YouTube / various podcasts and whatever else I stumble upon. The aim is a useful weekly aggregator of ideas rather than news. Though I try to keep the sources current – I’ll reference these articles and podcasts etc. as I encounter them – they may have been published just a couple of days ago or in some cases quite a bit earlier.
