Dear Crypto Natives,
Mainstream. That was the theme this week.
Reddit on Ethereum, 🔥DeFi wallets, major investors buying crypto—looks like we’re going mainstream so why isn’t price going up? Because these things aren’t the spark—they’re the fuel. Dry tinder on a forrest floor.
It’s funny, early Visa had the same challenges before going mainstream. More fractals.
As for us? We’ll keep living a few steps in the future.
They call us early adopters. I think of us as settlers. We’re taming the west. Building the infrastructure. Getting crypto ready for the masses.
Let’s stay sharp so we’re ready when they come.
On to the recap…
