On today’s episode of “The Breakdown,” NLW looks at the market’s reaction to a new bitcoin all-time high, including:

  • The success of the first day of the ProShares bitcoin futures exchange-traded fund
  • Why the ETF didn’t end up being a “buy the rumor, sell the news” event
  • Why the new ATH is all the more impressive given the recent FUD and actions by the Chinese government
  • Why this ATH has some very different on-chain dynamics from previous ones

“The Breakdown” is written, produced by and features NLW, with editing by Rob Mitchell and additional production support by Eleanor Pahl. Adam B. Levine is our executive producer and our theme music is “Countdown” by Neon Beach. The music you heard today behind our sponsor is “Tidal Wave” by BRASKO.
