The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 55

Not a week covered in glory from a price point of view. Then again unless you are an active day trader, short-term price action isn’t of any particular relevance. Once more, lots of interest to discuss, reflect on and try to take-in, this past week in crypto.


Picks of the Week

Always good to have a quality report to delve into but even better to spend some quality time with Nick Szabo.

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.
