Cryptocurrencies

The Sunday Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 31

Up – 9k then down down and up again. The market is certainly poised for a significant break. A steep retrace seems the most likely short-term outcome but zooming out a little the bull looks in. As typical in crypto, lots of news and narratives to recap. Block.one just announced a faster EOS and a new social media platform -jury’s still out as to whether this was an ‘event’ or not.


Pick of the Week

A thorough examination of the remittance market is my pick of the week. Though this week’s podcast for the following quote alone “Quantitative easing is universal basic income for rich people”, comes in a close second.

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.
