The Sunday Crypto Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 55

Not a week covered in glory from a price point of view. Then again unless you are an active day trader, short-term price action isn’t of any particular relevance. Once more, lots of interest to discuss, reflect on and try to take-in, this past week in 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.

Traditional Photography – Stone Owl at Bretton hall lake – Hand tinted print.

Unfortunately the Owl has now been stolen or broken by vandals and is no longer there. I’m not sure about the history behind this place but it looks like an old crypt. situated behind the lake at Bretton Hall near Wakefield West Yorkshire.

The image was taken with a Mamiya RB67 on analogue film. Hand printed onto black and white fibre based paper and then hand tinted with photographic dyes.
