The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 81

The halving has finally occurred – interestingly neither hashrate nor price has taken a hit. The fundamentals, of course, have never been better. The long view is bright but whether the current bullish price trend continues is anyone’s guess.

As per usual, crypto remains fast-paced and fascinatingly rich in terms of competing narratives – BTC vs gold, Eth v BTC, and stablecoins vs fiat etc.


Picks of the Week

Hard to look past ‘The Breakdown’ which for months now has been producing on-point content focused on the crypto world and beyond. Two recent highlights are this discussion of the co-option of the FED and an in-depth explanation of Paul Tudor Jone’s qualified endorsement of BTC. Continuing the podcast theme, this one hour BTC explainer is an excellent evangelical resource.

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.
