The Sat Standard - July 25th, 2020

Thought of the week from Marty Bent:
Bitcoin isn’t everything critics want it to be out of the box and that’s okay. It actually may be a benefit because it can only get better in time.

Thought of the week from Matt Odell:
It would only take a few days of the stock market dumping while bitcoin pumps for a compelling safe haven narrative to emerge. Bitcoin price consolidation over the last few months would seem to make this scenario more likely.
