Price action remained bearish though some high-profile Alts showed signs of life. BTC metrics (aside from short-term price) remained bullish. Binance continued to provide a model of revenue earning by providing wanted services. EOS saw the publishing of a number of meaningful governance proposals amongst other developments. Craig Wright and Tone Vays conducted another round of name-calling and circus clown performances – another week in crypto. Don’t be fooled by bearish sentiment – lots going on, progress throughout the ecosystem – patience and solid investment decisions will, in time, be rewarded.

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.
