The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 77

Money continues to magically appear and it’s all going to work out fine, right? Right?

The Bitcoin halving is less than a month away. While important, it shouldn’t be taken out of context – the halving won’t in itself ‘pump your bags’. Nonetheless, crypto looks increasingly placed to pick up the pieces of a crumbling hyper-inflated fiat system and thankfully so. Patience, tenacity, and research are required to benefit from this possible transition. Above all – it’s not going to be linear, easy or free from failure. Choose wisely and stay the course.

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.
