The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 66

Is this a reversal of trend? It certainly looks that way but as always, time will tell, and the only certainty is a lack of it! The eagle-eyed amongst you will notice a predominance of Bitcoin-related material this week which saw the release of a wealth of high-quality tweet-storms/articles and podcasts on BTC. Fear not, Ethereum, OmiseGo, and even Bitcoin Cash all make an appearance.

The pace of development throughout the crypto space seems to be picking up - a good sign?

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.
