Cryptocurrencies

The Sunday Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 32

Are we mid-way through a steep correction or about to bounce? Probability may favour the bears at this point but as always nothing in crypto is certain. EOS had its big moment – did Block.one disappoint? Checkout out the video below by Investing With A Difference for an upbeat assessment. Bitcoin SV pumped mysteriously, KIK and the SEC locked horns as did the US and China over an ever-expanding trade dispute. Never a dull moment.


As usual, 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.


Picks of the Week

This cogent argument for acquiring at least one BTC. Also highly recommend the podcast featuring the CEO of Blockchain – lots of high value crypto information here though delivered in a very casual manner.

That’s it for this week’s journey down the crypto rabbit hole. Until next time! 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.
