We’re back with another Friday Fundamentals. Stats of note this week are the number of shorts falling off a cliff, the difficulty not budging dispite almost 2x in price movement in 2 months, CME volume is surging again, and mempool being elevated. Our one news item in this episode is the Microsoft Decentralized Identity System called ION. I speak about it for a few minutes as a layer 2 for Bitcoin.
In this Friday Fundamentals episode, we hit some conflicting metrics from around the space, including technical divergence, stubborn sentiment, slow mining reaction, and lightning dynamics. For news we hit Representative Sherman’s stupid crypto bill, the Binance hack and a Tether update.
This is a Friday Fundamentals episode where I go over the Bitcoin price, market sentiment, mining, and news that affect the fundamentals.

I breakdown that dynamic and explain that Tether is the front line in the currency war.
