The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 71

The crypto market rebounded somewhat this past week though whether or not this has staying power is far from clear (as this goes to press BTC is experiencing a sharp pullback). What is apparent, however, is the continuing unraveling of global equity markets. Expect more ‘emergency’ measures and QE to follow.

A momentous week for crypto adoption with India’s Reserve Bank ban being over-turned by the Supreme Court. Add to this positive regulations being passed in Germany, South Korea, and France. The future looks bright but you likely know that already.


Pick of the Week

As usual, there’s lots to choose from but this wide-ranging discussion of the house of card structure of the current financial apparatus is a must-listen.

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.
