Did someone say... Libra? bZx Launch, Kyber integrates into HTC + more!

Latest this week

My time spent on Crypto Twitter has probably increased by 10x over the past week because of the tremendous influx of news coming out. Strap in, it’s a long read!

On Chain Statistics

Total Locked in DeFi: $569M. Small change from last edition by approx $30m. ETH holders are waiting for price to take off as Bitcoin rips through $9k and approaches $10k.

Biggest Gainer: Connext starting off with $40k locked in their state channels. Great things take time :)

Interesting Stat: Augur has $1m locked up while Veil still only has $70k.
