The Sunday Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 27

The market’s lively with Bitcoin forging new 2019 highs. Sentient seems broadly positive but Bitfinex and Tether issues still lurk in the background.

A quick glance below will show that there are a lot of articles this week. I’ve edited and edited but more just kept pushing their way on. Rex finally rolling out was the stand-out event but as usual, there were many interesting facets of crypto to dig into throughout the week.

As always, I’ve selected the articles, etc. because I found them enlightening, compelling or challenging in some fashion. I don’t necessarily agree with the sentiments of each Tweet or article but aim to provide a door into the competing narratives that comprise crypto.

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.
