The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 56

Ironically, while, I keep having to wipe away the blood covering my portfolio this has been a wonderful week in terms of informative articles, insightful tweets, and educational podcasts/vids. So, rather than lamenting short-term price action, delve right into to the ever-fascinating cryptosphere.


If invested and still plagued by doubt - ponder this:
Has BTC’s long-term outlook fundamentally changed?

If you hold only Alts - answer this:
Why?

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.
