Dear Bankless Nation,

What a crazy week.

BTC crossed $40K. ETH broke its previous market cap ATHs.

The OCC paved the way for major US banks to leverage public blockchains as payment infrastructure for USD transactions. And there were some tumultuous events in the U.S. governance protocol.

One thing’s certain. No one knows what 2021 will bring. But that didn’t stop us from taking a shot at some 2021 predictions.

Here’s what we do know though.

Next week on Bankless is hot:

  • Podcast with Chris Dixon, a general partner at a16z (full subs have early access)

  • The inside story behind the group that purchased $2M worth of Beeple art

  • An AMA with the founder of the stunningly successful The Graph protocol

Let’s get to the recap.


P.S. NFTs are gonna have a big year…did you subscribe to Metaversal yet?
