Price action remained bearish though some high-profile Alts showed signs of life. BTC metrics (aside from short-term price) remained bullish. Binance continued to provide a model of revenue earning by providing wanted services. EOS saw the publishing of a number of meaningful governance proposals amongst other developments. Craig Wright and Tone Vays conducted another round of name-calling and circus clown performances - another week in crypto. Don't be fooled by bearish sentiment - lots going on, progress throughout the ecosystem - patience and solid investment decisions will, in time, be rewarded.
