Video of the Week

YouTuber Graham Stephan explained all the craziness that has been happening with DOGE for the last week. Musk tweets, his SNL appearance and the impact on the price — all ground covered! To make the analysis more complete and unbiased, he even interviewed the Dogecoin millionaire hodler Glauber Contessoto.

Crypto News Digest from Twitter

Before the end of week drama, Crypto Twitter and other social media were discussing a cute fact. Mark Zuckerberg shared to his Facebook followers that he named his new goats Max and Bitcoin. Some users decided it alludes to Bitcoin maximalists, and others thought it is Zuckerberg’s way of saying Bitcoin is GOAT (slang for “greatest of all time”).

And a bit before that, the hottest topic was a new New York Digital Investment Group survey. It implied 22% of adult Americans, or 46 million people, have access to Bitcoin. Some community members were sceptical, as the survey targeted a small bunch of tech-savvy users and provided not enough transparency.

The last couple days have been a lot for the community. Without all the stories mentioned in the tweet, BTC would not tank as hard as it did. Still, even that 30% pullback was not enough to throw it off the trajectory completely, as history proves.

The confidence of some BTC investors may have been shaken but ultimately, Bitcoin and the market are on their way to shrug off the dip. If you were in Ethereum, you might not even have noticed all the FUD! Anyway, it will be riveting to see all the events play out.
