Rough ride for the Bitcoin while EU struggles to fight the crypto

Well, back in December I thought that Bitcoin will regain value quite fast after the holidays, but it didn’t, and it stayed true to my first experiment in graph-based-prediction (which I still think is more of a Rorschach test for Dunning-Krugerrands, bu lo, some of them happen to be right sometimes, just as my graph […]
