The Block

June 4 · Issue #48 · View online
Weekly curated #cryptocurrency news and commentary.

This is The Block. Beginning next week I’ll be briefly returning to a one-newsletter-per week frequency, but fear not, you’ll still be getting a good dose of news and commentary. Hopefully you’ve found it useful!
I’ve found some weeks there’s a plethora of ideas and topics to write about, while other weeks seem to be a struggle. I never want to fake it on a mini-essay; I want you to get as much value out of this newsletter as possible. If I don’t have anything to say, I just won’t say it, and jump straight into the links. 
Today is one of those days. I hope the links are just as, if not more useful. And if you ever have a topic you’d like me to cover, email me.

Bitcoin started off the week on a sour note, but we may have reached the bottom. Or it could just be a bull trap. Or it could be testing $11,700 resistance soon. Gosh, the possibilities!
Ripple’s many partnerships has confused the price of XRP. Efforts are underway to differentiate more the company from the currency, including crowdsourcing a Unicode character for the price. In any case, upsurge in optimism may fuel XRP’s rise to $1.
Coinbase is set to enter the Japanese crypto market.
