This is a Friday Fundamentals episode where I go over the Bitcoin price, market sentiment, mining, and news that affect the fundamentals. Tether is grabbing headlines right now, but there’s a split growing among Bitcoin supporters. The old-timers seen to support Tether and Bitfinex, while others are overly harsh. I breakdown that dynamic and explain that Tether is the front line in the currency war.
On our Friday Fundamentals episodes we discuss price, sentiment of the market, mining, lightning and development. This episode we also discuss the big Bitcoin news of the day with the Tether and Bitfinex situation.
