  • WallStreetBets moving off Reddit?

Our main discussion: Citi’s analysis of bitcoin.

February saw a non-stop barrage of bullish bitcoin news with regard to institutional uptake. March is off to a similar start with a massive research report arguing that:

  • Bitcoin’s evolution over the last seven years has been spectacular
  • CBDCs are likely to become more important
  • If CBDCs do become more important, it could spur more corporations to use bitcoin as a global settlement currency

NLW argues that the report itself may be the beginning of a new, important part of the institutional bitcoin narrative.
