This entry is part 13 of 20 in the series Sunday Recap

What can I say, things haven’t slowed down this week. Its been a steam-roller of news, narratives, and tech developments. Fun to dig into but very time-consuming. This week, I’m adding a new feature – Pick of the Week. If you only have time for one piece of crypto ‘insight’, I recommend you check out the weekly pick.

    Good link, thanks. I’m not buying the KuCoin washtrading saga just yet – if it is happening then it’s very low level, but I don’t find the evidence to be conclusive in any way. To me it looks like the guys who got delisted are acting butthurt.

    52% under authoritarian… Freakin’ huge number 🙁 Even if i see it each day, and dont understand, why dont see it everyone. And then i read in press, btc only for speculation… Maybe we have to ask a random venezuelan about it…
