Once again this has been a great week to be engaged with crypto. While the charts offered volatility, the space itself heaved with good ideas, competing narratives, and incremental developments. This week's crypto Twitter segment alone is a treasure trove of expertise and insightful analysis. The charts will wait.

As per usual, each item is here because it is compelling/interesting or thought-provoking in some way. Inclusion is not an endorsement. Verify don't trust (cough..HEX).


Picks of the Week

So much to choose from - this fine-grain analysis of recent changes to Libra's governance structure and this much-needed exposure of influencer pushed leverage trading. In addition, this wide-ranging discussion of the proposition that is BTC.
