The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 89

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!

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.
