This entry is part 7 of 8 in the series Sunday Recap

2018 all but in the books and what a crushing, ego-diminishing year it’s been for your average crypto enthusiast but that is only one lens through which to view the year. Tech improvements, major project launches, the rollout of blockchain infrastructure and the first shoots of regulatory clarity are all just as important themes to consider when reflecting on the year. On balance, it’s been a good one with so much to learn, discuss and debate. I have a strong feeling 2019 will be a whale of a year through the price is – as always – an unknown.

Despite the festive season being in full swing – this week was typically hectic with more than a hint of self-deprecating humour on display..

There we have it – the last trip down the crypto rabbit hole for 2018. Looking forward to continuing the journey in 2019. As always, looking forward to your comments and critiques.

Note on Sources:

Twitter & Reddit (cryptos current meta-brains) / Medium / Trybe / Hackernoon / Whaleshares 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.
