The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 94

Bitcoin remains poised to breakout – though a sharp retracement along the way remains a firm possibility. Ethereum however, seems on its way to higher highs having blown past $400. This despite the network being crippled by very high fees. The knock-on effect is the dapps running on Ethereum are becoming prohibitively expensive to use. ChainLink continues to forge new highs with a slew of other cryptos also posting solid gains.

A week of wild rides for those playing in the DeFi space. Yams were a thing for a whole day until a series of protocol bugs derailed the whole project. Then Curve apparently launched before its developers intended it to – enabling a very shady premine. There are redflags all over this space…

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.
