This entry is part 3 of 20 in the series Sunday Recap

The bear continues to over-stay his welcome but crypto moves on. The baby steps of blockchain adoption continue apace such as Ohio soon to allow businesses to pay their taxes in Bitcoin. The clash of perspectives rages on even as a detente seems achieved between the warring factions of Bitcoin cash. Will it last – unlikely but at least it’s off centre stage. And to take its place – concerns over SEC rulings against ICO’s, price concerns, the steady drum-roll of ‘crypto is dead’ and ‘I told you so’. Still, so much being done and an ever-deepening well of data to parse and competing perspectives to explore. As Antonio Pomplianio likes to put it, ‘ The virus is spreading.’ I know I seem to have caught it.

This week I’ve added a link to a BTC utility to the end of the post. It estimates the coming hashing difficulty adjustment – very useful and just downright interesting.

        The difficulty indicator – I have no idea what goes on under the hood – more your area of competency but its an interesting means of tracking miner profitability and BTC resilience to price fluctuations. Next difficulty adj should be in about a day or so with a 15% drop..making it more profitable to mine were the price to remain stable. As miners shut down the difficulty drops, as they enter the system it ramps up – 2 week lag in either case. Price has dropped severely, miners have ceased mining – dif drops – equilibrium is reached. I guess you know all this stuff already.
