Bitcoin Weekly: Consensys 2018 Incoming

Bitcoin Weekly: Consensys 2018 Incoming Last week we discussed how Bitcoin was approaching key levels. It hit the resistance line at $10k and unfortunately didn’t have the momentum to pull through.

Far too many people bought the hype last year and then sold the bottom. Unfortunately that...
