Every day sees new reports of prices going up – from commodities to plastic to fruit. Are we ready to use the “I” word?

This episode is sponsored by Nexo.io and Bitstamp.

  • Elon Musk saves an SNL flop with a dogecoin satellite
  • Growing interest in Ethereum
  • UBS explores offering crypto to wealthy clients

For now, most pieces like these remain a healthy combination of spot data (in other words specific companies raising prices) and anecdotes versus aggregate data. That isn’t stopping a new inflation narrative from forming, however. Listen to find out what it means.
