Morning, Coinheads.

Bitcoin has taken a tumble. The cryptocurrency was down to $36,541.16 at 7.30am, a drop of 2.69% over the last 24 hours. Looking to buy on the dip? Now might be your chance. Or not.

This is not financial advice. 

Gamestop (ASX:GME) is back and the apes on Wall Street Bets must be stoked. The video game company is partnering with Ethereum token, Immutable X  to power an NFT marketplace that is expected to launch later this year. And SafeMoon hit one million wallet downloads last month.

The $320 million hack on Wormhole sends Solana into a spiral, exchanges give Pi coin the cold shoulder, and Axie Infinity investors are having a fire sale.

Meanwhile, Doge may be looking bearish now, but could it be a powerful long-term bet?
