The first two weeks of 2023 look promising for crypto, but we should still pay attention to global events, such as economists predicting a 70% chance of a 2023 recession.
Bitcoin just recently turned 14 years old, and it might be about to face its most unpleasant macro environment to date. Something that the network was initially designed to combat following the 2008 crisis is now put to the test.
