The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 86

This was the week DeFi recaptured the cryptosphere’s attention as Compound launched and promptly rocketed up in value. Expect to hear much more about this and similar projects going forward. Just bear in mind that DeFi will be the hot new tag of 2020 not dissimilar to 2017’s ICO. Most of those projects turned out to be garbage – this will be no different. DYOR will reward you far more than chasing moonbeams and hope-based yield farming.

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.
