👹 Savage of the Week
There’s no better candidate for savage of the week than the market itself. Most cryptocurrencies saw big drops this week. While Bitcoin fell 11.2% from $47,400 to $42,000 in the last week, Ethereum sunk 17.2% from $3,825 to $3,169. If you are in it for the long term, this might not bother you. Or maybe you spent the last week contemplating your illiquid jpegs. One way or another, we cope, so may the force be with you.
