Up, up and down...such is the market. Zoom out, stay focused on a longer time frame and the immense potential and upside of crypto becomes much easier to grasp. This week's recap focuses on podcasts. If you're short on time, podcasts are an efficient means to stay up to date. They are also a great way of getting to know the key players in the market. A recent podcast interview with Mike Novogratz taught me more about him and his investment thesis than all the many articles I'd previously read.

Note on Sources:
Twitter & Reddit (cryptos current meta-brains) / Medium / Trybe / Hackernoon / Whaleshares / TIMM 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.
