The Sunday Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 37

Well, if you hoping for a one-way ride to new all-time highs – you’ve been disappointed. Bitcoin is going to have to do a bit more heavy lifting before we see blue skies. You may yet get another opportunity to accumulate BTC at sub 10k. Regardless, the crypto sky isn’t falling but some pointless Alts are certainly dying.

Crypto just crossed Donald Trump’s desk – he ‘thinks’ he doesn’t like it. My guess – Libra was explained to him -Bitcoin was referenced during that explanation. Libra = Facebook. Facebook is bad (usually unkind to the President). By extension Libra = bad and by association – Bitcoin = bad. Let’s see how this ‘stance’ develops in the coming months.


Picks of the Week

Keeping it simple – an explanation of cryptography that’s light on jargon. Anton Antonopoulos on the ‘Future of Money‘ is well worth the time.

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.
