The Sunday Recap – Down the Rabbit Hole 45

Down, up, down – trading in a range – you get the picture. The cryptosphere itself has fortunately proven much more interesting than the price action. Lots going on and more than enough competing narratives to chew on. Twitter was on fire – included are only a fraction of the interesting discussions/observations of the last week or so.


Picks of the Week

A tour of the educational landscape of crypto in 2019 is of particular interest as is the sprawling podcast discussion of Austrian economics and Bitcoin.

Once again, I learned a lot this last week down the crypto rabbit hole. 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.
