Red. It’s all red. At the time of writing this weekly roundup, the crypto markets are down more than 10% on the week, with Bitcoin Cash taking the biggest hit among the top 10 coins—it was almost 20% down. How will this downswing impact blockchain development throughout the rest of the year? We hope it doesn’t slow progress too much. The teams developing worthwhile applications, who at least have working capital, shouldn’t have anything to worry about. Keep building!
