This entry is part 9 of 10 in the series Sunday Recap

Is that a whiff of optimism in the crypto air? I believe so, despite the last couple of days of bearish price action. Whether this newfound cheerfulness converts into a general trend reversal remains to be seen. What’s not in question is the continuing tsunami of updates, developments, iterations, re-iterations and competing project narratives that have ushered in 2019. Once again, lots left on the editing floor – hopefully, crypto enthusiasts new and old will find a lot of value/interest in this week’s release.

    Go big or go home concept, hmmm. Lets see how it all pans out. I am optimistic as usual, well I have to be’, I’m a HODLR, could be a beer or a new Ferrari at the end of the day. 🙂 – Cheers and that for sharing your great posts as usual.
    Regards,

    I think a breeze of optimism is better. It’s like people finally realized that no, the world was not created in 7 days, like the Bible says. It was all a metaphor. It took longer:). The impatient quick money makers are now out of the market, so the people left are the ones who believe in the future of blockchain. You mentioned Cardano. You know they started where I live, right? I actually know 2 of the boys working for Cardano. I used to work with one+ he is a poker player while the other one came to one of the Tuesday crypto meetings I organize. They’re hard working and bullish on crypto in general.
    Quality as always. *****
    I’ll come back to rate when allowed to do so, cheers.

      Cheers @niramiai. Yes, the long view is the only way to enjoy this crypto trip – a lot of crypto investors are very young so I guess it tightens their investment horizon or perception of ‘long’. Cardano is one of my primary holdings- stacked up at $0.03…Hmm5 yrs from now might look like a good call (who knows?). It’s interesting how many ex-poker players are in crypto – tolerant of high risk and generally very smart so makes sense I suppose.

        Speaking of poker players, check out Brett Richey, a professional poker player who retired and is now the CEO of a blockchain project. Phil Hellmuth, arguably the best tournament poker player ever, is the project’s advisor. Using blockchain to find the best odds out there for the sports gambler. Interesting project, for sure. The retired Brett Richey is probably 30 years old?:)) Smart poker players like Tony G. left poker and embarked a new adventure: the blockchain adventure. Exciting times are coming.
