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.
