⚡ Week 47: Quick Bits (w/ Black Friday Sale Specials)


Greetings Earthling,

Welcome to this week’s Bitcoin Breakdown Quick Bits feature where we curate the most interesting and pertinent Bitcoin snippets from the past week.

Scroll down for a curated list of some of the best Black Friday Specials in the Bitcoin industry.

Just a quick note to let you know that we'll be spending some time with our families over the next few days for Thanksgiving and there will thus not be any Top Stories feature this weekend.

Please leave us a positive review here, where you’ll be rewarded 500 sats for free – yours to keep as an outright present without cost or charge – not a penny, gratis – on the house!

Happy readings! 👽️
