Morning, Coinheads.

As we sit on the precipice of World War III, Bitcoin was swinging this way and that on Monday evening as Putin ordered tanks into Ukraine and the markets digested what a war actually looks like. Bitcoin started down in the UK, dipping to US$37,000, but by the time US was waking up it was making a small rally, along with most of the majors.

Not so much for Doge or Bitcoin Cash. Is this an opportunity to BTFD? We couldn’t possibly say.

Meanwhile, NFT sales have hit an all time high; pity about the US$1.7 million hack on OpenSea. That’s at least a couple of missing monkeys, to be sure. And Metaverse token SENSO is down 80% from its record high in November.

Feels like there’s a lesson here…

Let’s take a closer look:
