The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 57

While it remains to be seen if we are heading lower, it’s been another bountiful week in terms of crypto content. Despite a number of edits, this week’s recap is heaving with interesting/informative material - from discussions of the role of crypto journalism to a balanced analysis of the effect of leverage trading on BTC’s price.


Picks of the Week

This Tweetstorm delving into ‘news’ in a Chinese context. In addition, this in-depth examination of the next BTC halving and this defense of crypto-journalism are standouts. Finally, this lengthy interview with Anton Antonopoulos is an excellent investment of your time.

A whale of a week (I almost certainly learned a thing or two). 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.
