  1. I have just realized you guys do these overviews on the weekly basis. Keep up the good work!

  2. Well done. I never expected such engaging content from coinmarketcap, from all places.

  3. In my opinion, FOMO will be happen when BTC reach 10k.

    • I think so too! then the FOMO will push it higher, and then, hopefully, a real growth will begin. Hoping to see 2017 all over again and on the new level.

  4. Keep At'it

    Well whoever came up with this idea should keep at it. Funny, good, and more.

  5. I love it!
