Bitcoin metrics [Episode 8]

Today I talked about bitcoin metrics, measurements to track in order to evaluate the health of the network and the price of Bitcoin. I demystified the metrics that I hear thrown around and we talked about what was valuable and what metrics are totally bogus. No Market Minute on this episode, I’m planning to out a seperate Market Minute episode on Wednesday.
