Crypto took a major dive this week upon news of Russia’s invasion of the Ukraine. Despite this, the value proposition of decentralized and uncensorable money rages on. ATMs run out of money in the Ukraine as people rush to get access to their cash, meanwhile a digital wallet raising funds to support the Ukrainian army receives over $700,000 in bitcoin.
Meanwhile another fundraising campaign on Patreon raising money for a nonprofit giving body armor to Ukrainian army, was shut down by Patreon.
Meanwhile the words of the late foreign policy expert George Kennan from 1998 are proving prescient.

Plus exciting news from Catawba Indian Nation: A new Special Economic Zone paves the way for crypto adoption!
