If it does, it looks to be a strong accumulation signal.   -We talk about the Grayscale Trust GBTC lockup expiry soon approaching, and the implications it could have for the bitcoin markets, and the reasons investors may look to sell their position at a loss.    -We talk about the risks of trading and timing market cycles, as well as managing emotions behind investing, based on our tenured experience as financial managers and bitcoin investors.   -We recognize US Senator Cynthia Lummis' recent OpSec mistake on CNBC in this week's Boating Accident.    -We talk about the difficult adjustment period and the implications a 50% hash rate drop has for the bitcoin network, as well as potential considerations to note over the next few months regarding bitcoin mining. ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ Visit Our WebsiteSupport the Show
