Weekly Action Recap

Your action recap for the week of January 22nd, 2021

First round of 2021 Bankless Badges going out soon! Get on the Bankless program

Dear Bankless Nation,

ETH hit all time highs this week. This was a massive win for ETH holders.

Congratulations to those that held through a 95% drop. Those who kept believing. Kept building.

Over the course of a two year bear market, we built the foundations for a new, parallel financial system. We shipped Eth2. We leveled up your understanding of this new technology, and what it could mean for the future.

Congrats everyone—this time we earned it. 😉

Here’s what we have lined up for the next one:

  • Podcast with Justin Drake on moon math and cryptography (early access here) 🔥

  • A tactic on how to leverage your yield farm for bonus yield

  • David’s cooking something up on Eth2 staking

Rest up and enjoy the weekend.

2021’s just getting started.


P.S. Congratulations bguimberteau for winning the Instagram raffle! Check your inbox for details on how to claim your Bankless tee.
