Crypto prices have pumped, dumped, and then pumped again this week – but what was actually going on behind the scenes?


What will the future of crypto look like in 5 years? Well, ​@aentan​ has some interesting speculations. CBDCs not happening sounds a bit too optimistic though, if you ask me… 🙂

Things are building up at DeFiChain… MetaChain launched on the testnet, and now ​soon there will be a Learn & Earn​. Nice ????

What an idea: Leaving a birthday message for your now 3-year-old child that it can listen to years later… I wonder what Julian and Bettina told him?! ????

Julian’s Q&A of the Week

Q: Does having so much money actually make you happy?

A: Money itself does not make people happy. But there are interesting studies that show that higher income often correlates with more happiness – only up to a certain point, though. At some point, more money does not mean more happiness. What’s the reason for that? Well, what really makes us happy are good relationships with other people, experiencing things together and building deep relationships. To summarize: If you don’t have to worry about money all the time, it’s just easier. Are you happier with 100 million than with 10? Not necessarily. Are you happier with 1 million than with $10,000 as your net worth? Maybe still not, but there’s a higher chance it might make more of a difference.

Quote of the Week

“A Diamond is nothing else than a piece of coal that withstood the pressure”

Meme of the Week

This is obviously a fake picture, but of course some people think the fake news by Cointelegraph may have been a coordinated Pump&Dump. Regardless, it shows how much the market would pump, should a Bitcoin ETF get approved 🙂

Those were the most important updates from this week. And what have you been up to? 🙂
