The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 84

2020 keeps on giving. America descending into chaos, a China-US trade war all but inevitable, and the European central bank blithely summoning another 600 billion Euros in stimulus funds – bearish for Bitcoin? No reward for guessing the obvious. All aboard the BTC train.

As always, the focus is on crypto-narratives, education, and thoughtful analysis of the road ahead.


Picks of the Week

As usual, there’s a wealth of excellent material to recommend. If it made the recap in the first place, it’s worthy of attention. Nonetheless, a few rate particular mention: This entertaining and compelling argument for BTC. This in-depth report examining Libra going forward and this lucid dissection of the systemic failures of the global legacy financial system.

Website / Utility

Shared before but this is an essential website for those looking to make sense of our current macro-economic predicament:


As per usual the cryptosphere offered up a wide range of narratives, articles, podcasts, and video content from which to learn and reflect upon. Until next week!


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.
