The Cake Monthly – Summertime, 2022

Welcome back! Here’s our monthly newsletter, in article form, for those of you who haven’t subscribed to it yet. Here’s what’s been going on in the crypto – blockchain space, and with The Cake itself, of course. Hold your breath. Keep reading and enjoy!


In fact, there’s never a dull moment in the crypto space. But especially, in the last few months, emotions have been running high for many of us. Despite such a long crypto-winter, this summer has been unusually hot. What an irony. Watching the crypto markets, global politics, and macroeconomics can leave you feeling overwhelmed, worried, and anxious. And you know what? It’s normal. Just like you, we sometimes feel baffled as well. Yet remember, it’s still a journey, not a final destination. Above all, know you aren’t alone.

The heart of our project is the strength of people. It is for a reason that we refer to The Cake as the trusted source for crypto – blockchain knowledge and advice. From the very beginning, and invariably, as we continue to build up, improve and grow. In the current issue of our newsletter, you will find valuable tips on how to handle difficult times, but also what to know, not to forget, and in what direction to broaden your knowledge.

Meanwhile, continue with this recap.



🎢 The pricing roller coaster

Ongoing inflation reports around the world added to global macroeconomics worries, which of course affects the crypto markets as well. Consequently, Bitcoin saw a nearly 40% drop in June, and Ethereum’s nearly 50%. Additionally, significant troubles faced by some major crypto lending platforms, including Celsius, BlockFi, Voyager, and Vauld taking drastic measures to adapt to the challenging market environment, may have painfully affected your accumulated wealth. The recent mess happening around the Solana project added fuel to the fire as well.

The good news, on the other hand, is that with around a 17% surge – July already became Bitcoin’s best month, so far this year.

However. If you are looking for support or advice (business or individual) related to security, law, regulations, asset recovery or taxes – visit our Search.
