WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND?
David: The dominoes seems to be falling faster and faster Markets, Charts, news and releases all seem to align/resonate and this is one of those moments I’ve been more bullish BTC than normal, and more publicly bullish BTC than normal (much to Sassals dismay) but that doesn’t change the fact that when BTC moons, ETH usually Moons 2x.
Long-term I think Bitcoin is second place on market cap
(preparing the way) - Bitcoin:
-- 2nd place in transaction fees
-- 2nd place in settlement value
-- 2nd place in transaction volume
- There’s not such thing as ALT: if you continue see the crypto world through the lens of "Bitcoin" and the "Alts" you're going to get left behind. It's 2020, not 2015. Today there are: - Crypto capital assets
- Crypto commodities
- Crypto monies The same asset superclasses as old finance.
WHAT ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT?
David: Deposit Contract Hype! 1 ETH value accrual pillar to 2 pillars
Ryan: Projects launching directly on L2 https://twitter.com/RyanSAdams/status/1318299374556975104?s=20
- Honeyswap (on XDAI): https://www.xdaichain.com/about-xdai/project-spotlights/honeyswap
- minting directly on xDai then bridge to Etheruem
