September Recap, October Preview for Crypto is Easy

By MarkHelfman | Crypto is Easy | 2 Oct 2020

What a month! The total crypto market crashed from $400 billion to $300 billion and now sits at about $340 billion total market cap. Bitcoin fell from its August high of $12,500 down to below $10,000. It sits at about $10,700 as of this post.

Premium subscribers who followed my plan missed the August peaks and bought more crypto when bitcoin’s price dropped between $9,800 and $10,100. For some alts, that meant catching a 50% discount.

Now we wait for our next opportunity.

Read below to see what you missed in September and what you can look forward to in October. If you’re listening on YouTube or the Crypto is Easy podcast, the links are in the notes in the description below.

***One quick note before you scroll down: on September 22, 2020, I told you about an airdrop from XYearnFinance. To be clear, I am NOT recommending this project or its token and I will NOT participate in any crowdfunding or token sales. To be honest, I know nothing about the project or its legitimacy. I passed along the airdrop because it took only a few seconds to participate and posed near-zero risk.***

What you missed in September

What to expect in October

  • More perspective on the global financial crisis, crypto developments, and what it all means for bitcoin and altcoins.
  • Bitcoin and altcoin market updates.
  • Another altcoin recommendation (maybe, depending on the outcome of my conversations with the team).
  • More YouTube videos and updates to My Plan for Bitcoin’s Bull Market.

If you’re not a premium subscriber, you may want to think about upgrading your experience so you can get everything I mention above.
