The economic outlook is grim. The jobless claims keep piling up and even the most intransigent states are shutting down business. There isn’t - yet - a realistic plan - for returning to any sort of economic normalcy.

  • A significant uptick in Stablecoin issuance 
  • Proof that bitcoiners have been buying the dip 
  • Evidence that new audiences are finding their way to bitcoin (and perhaps with a sound money narrative in mind) 
  • Binance’s acquisition of CMC and the power of M&A signals
