The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 68

Well, that was a week worthy of a recap, from IOTA shutting down (for now) to Tron ‘partnering’ with Steemit, and WAX teasing a partnership with Disney. Oh, and Voice finally launched – in beta and limited to the US but it’s a start.

Bitcoin cracked 10k and until moments ago stayed above that figure of ‘public interest’. Also a great week for most Alts with many posting double-digit gains though they have also seen a sudden sharp correction.

As always, a focus on long-term fundamentals will probably provide the greatest return on investment…so, be careful out there.


Picks of the Week

Alts, alts, alts…all that glitters is not gold (or Bitcoin). Also well worth your time, this article on the moment we see before us and this explanation of why you may feel you are falling further behind year after year after year.

An excellent resource of quality Bitcoin focused articles (recommended):


Exciting times indeed. However, remember to stay sceptical – verify don’t trust. The noise to value ratio of the crypto space is set to explode – keep learning and filter, filter, filter.


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.
