Already in the first few weeks of 2021, we’ve seen: Bitcoin cross the $40k mark, President-elect Biden promise $2k stimulus checks, Elon Musk has become the richest man on the planet while one of the other richest men in the world – Jack Ma – has apparently gone missing, the Democrats win the Senate run off in Georgia, and rioters stormed the US Capitol.
