The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 79

A little touch of halving excitement entered the market. The coming weeks will indeed be telling in setting the tone for the rest of the year. Nonetheless, up, down, or sideways – zooming out and gazing upon a financial system in chaos would seem to bode well for Bitcoin and crypto in general.


Picks of the Week

This examination of dollar strength despite record printing and this discussion of BTC’s coming moment. Also this thoughtful appeal to those still sitting out Bitcoin. Another highlight – this straightforward examination of the role of debt in an economy.

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.
