Whatever you thought of the uncorrelated or safe haven narratives a few weeks ago, it’s hard to deny that bitcoin and crypto are moving in lockstep with equities - even mirroring a small bounce in the morning that retreated in the early afternoon.

  • Horizon Games’ blockchain-based Hearthstone/MtG style game SkyWeaver
  • Futureswap’s decentralized futures exchange and more
