The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 93

Are we there yet? Not quite. Bitcoin lies poised just below 12k – should it crest this level and stay above it for a few days things could get very interesting. The same can be said of Ethereum. Speaking of Ethereum, it seems there is currently no reliable means of proving how much of it actually exists. DeFi remains a subject of heated interest but buyer beware -there’s a lot of hot-air here too. ChainLink decided to go on an epic stop hunt – it’s another bellwether and worth watching from here.


Picks of the Week

Caitlin Long on banks, regulation, and Bitcoin is a must. As is this discussion of current market turmoil and what lies ahead. This insightful analysis of the sense underlying Bitcoin is another highlight.

Another week in the crypto history book. Don’t worry, more pages are being written! As always, looking forward to your comments and suggestions.


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.
