The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 51

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.


Picks of the Week

This rebuttal of Ripple’s ‘distance’ from XRP. Colin’s deep dive into recent EOS governance proposals is also very informative.

A whale of a week. Remember price is only one of many metrics with which to evaluate the cryptosphere. As always, looking forward to your comments and suggestions.


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.
