Highlighting what went right, and what went wrong, in this week’s crypto news analysis.

A persistent bear market has many traditional analysts questioning how much further prices can or will drop. Meanwhile, at the annual gathering of financial elites in Switzerland, discussions were balanced between the environmental impact (of everything) and how tech innovation will save us all.

Speaking of tech innovation, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak revealed he liquidated his crypto positions at peak mania, selling his BTC at $20k for a 2,800% profit. He also re-iterated his opinion that bitcoin is ‘pure digital gold’.
