I’ve never seen a week like this since I’ve been curating the weekly update. But it’s abundantly apparent that there are quite a few folks excited about crypto. Now, this is a bit overblown by the $4.5B in allocations from Hedera. However, when taking that completely out of the equation, this week blows out all others with $2.5B in funds moving toward Digital Asset and Blockchain Technology projects. Gaming took the lion’s share this week.
