The Weekly News Roundup, ending 10 April 2022 “Unprecedented implementation”

Huge, huge, HUGE week for implementation and infrastructure, holy crap. Huge.
Mark Moss once said that the way 2022 looks unrecognizable to 1995, is the same way in which 2032 will be unrecognizable to today. The very networks, protocols and tools that will be a part of that unrecognizable world are being built and implemented RIGHT NOW.


Any comments or suggestions, feel free to reach out – hello @ tinycryptoblog.com

Be well, Everyone.


“The scarcity and pristine nature of Bitcoin as collateral may well be returning to the foreground once again.”

-Glassnode

“People are realizing that bitcoin is sovereign money. No one controls it. And anyone can use it.”

-Brian Cost
