Global stock markets continue to trend higher – so everything must be fine. Makes sense, right? Comment
Twitter got itself hacked – an event the media happily marketed as a ‘Bitcoin scam’. In any case, Obama and Elon Musk are now Bitcoin bulls, so there’s that!
Bitcoin is clearly approaching a decision point – probably best to think on it before it does…
Some Alts continue to outperform particularly those in the DeFi space – worth noting users are still few and far between. A lot of influencers are now shilling ‘hidden-gem’ DeFi projects – treat these endorsements with extreme skepticism.
As per usual, lots of narratives to explore from this last week in crypto – enjoy!
