The Sunday Recap - Down the Rabbit Hole 5

December 1, 2018

 

 

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.
