This is the AI x Crypto Cycle
Bankless Authors: David Hoffman

Every bull market cycle gets defined by the mania it incubated. 

  • 2013 was the “Proof of Work fork-and-fair-launch” era
  • 2017 was the ICO mania
  • 2021 was the NFT bubble

I’m calling it now: The 2024 cycle will be remembered as the AI x Crypto cycle. 

See what opportunities David is bullish on 👇
