Hello and welcome to coin confidential
The greatest crypto website on the internet… and a place completely free of hyperbole.
My name is Harry Hamburg and I created coin confidential when I left Southbank Investment Research in 2019.

After the disaster that was last week, let’s start with some good news. Actually, this news could be better than good. It could transform the world of crypto, and bring many more people into it. The news is that Ethereum will switch from Proof of Work to Proof of
We finally got an answer to the $22 million question: is Terra’s ecosystem sustainable? And the answer is: Source: CoinGeckoThat would be a no then. A week ago, Terra’s Luna tokens were trading for $80, today (before the network was shut down) they were trading for $0.000001.
