As I type Bitcoin is trading at $25,984.03 and for the week (M-F) Bitcoin was down $84.70; week over week it's down $95.13. The best performing asset in the past 7 days was again $TRX - up 4.89% in position #10 on Coinmarketcap.com. Last week the Fear and Greed Index was at 39 and today it's 38; still in Fear

This weekend recap is a bit limited since I am currently on travel but more to come later...
