December 23, 2020 | Issue #149

Editor's Note: It’s the holiday season! Like many of you, we're excited for 2020 to come to a close. We're also excited to take a little break from what we truly believe has been the most eventful, nonstop, hectic year of crypto news the world has ever seen.

That said, this week's issue will be a light one. And next time you'll hear from us will be on Wednesday, January 6th.

In the meantime, catch up on this week's rumblings and reflect on the massive success and progress this asset class had over the past year.

Happy holidays and see you next year,
