What’s Happening in the Cryptoverse #4

Bitcoin and Ethereum had a significant drop and recovery this week. Here are a couple of simple BTCUSD and ETHUSD charts I generated from my personal crypto database.

Congrats to everyone who BTD on either of these.

There’s alot of discussion about where BTC and ETH prices could go but there are still a lot of naysayers. Some of the doubters are quite well read and know what they’re talking about. Could they still be wrong, I believe they are but it’s still important to hear arguments against bitcoin. Check out this really great read by Simon Wardley about the future of Bitcoin(written in 2013).

Meme of the Week

In other irrational news, I finally jumped into the NFT space minting 3 NFTs in a public sale. This is my first and I have no idea what will happen but I thought it was a good way of upping my education by putting some money where my mouth is. I’m also planning to participate in another NFT pre-sale which was delayed. Keep your fingers crossed!

Speaking of NFTs. Next week is NFT.NYC. It’s a big conference with over 3,000 people expected at the main conference venue, not including smaller events happening around town. If you’re going do tag us (@invest_stream & @pjain) on some tweets!

Speaking of Twitter, I’m doing my first Twitter Space with the founder of Indian startup Chingari and the launch of their token for the creator economy. Join us on Saturday 30th of October 2021 at 9:30am EDT / 7pm IST
