The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 85

Apparently, how $600 billion dollars of public funds is spent is now ‘private’ even to government oversight bodies. Such government obfuscation can only be possible where mind-bending sums of dollars can simply be conjured into existence. Comment

Bankruptcy stock buying is now a (short-term profitable) thing. Magic internet money appears sensible by comparison.

The buy Bitcoin narrative isn’t in any danger of losing steam. Could we see a sharp drop if the current (absurd) stock market rally stalls/reverses? – Of course. Does that matter in the long term? – Not one bit.

India’s move to ban all crypto is sadly likely just the first of many such bans – plan accordingly. They will ultimately fail but that doesn’t mean there won’t be many crypto casualties along the way.

As per usual – the cryptosphere offered up a treasure trove of fascinating developments, discussions, and division.

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.
