The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 95

A slightly bearish tinge this week. Still, many cryptos continue to post strong gains. OMG, in particular, rode a wave of excitement on the announcement of its use by Tether. 

Portnoy came and went – probably for the best. Nonetheless, his stocks only go up mantra, is actually true – for now.

DeFi remains hot with Yearn.finance now well above 10k per token. Looking ahead, is gaming going to be the hot new thing? In my humble opinion – it is.
