A little bit of vroom vroom in the market this week. Cardano and Link, in particular, posted sterling gains. Still, BTC hasn’t broken out of ranging to date. Nonetheless, broader market structure appears bullish at the moment. Is this simply down to ‘money printer go brrrr?’ – hard to tell.
As per usual, lots to delve into this last week in crypto – enjoy!
