  • How the collision of Bitcoin’s halving and the Fed’s reaction to COVID-19 created a powerful narrative moment
  • Why the Money Printer Go BRR meme was so effective
  • Why the Paul Tudor Jones letter was hugely influential within Family Offices
  • Why these investors expect to see some significant announcements around bitcoin exposure from traditional investors in the months to come
