Holdex Community Digest, vol. IX

TL;DR: Check out the most notable articles and discussions written recently in Holdex, in the Swerve, Pickle, and Cream communities

After a stop to rethink NFTs, DeFi is back on track and pushing the markets higher with even more so-called Degen protocols going semi-mainstream.

In this ninth issue of the Holdex Community Digest, we bring you forks that fight on Twitter, forks that co-operate with each other, and a sour-humored food protocol that gets retweeted by leaders in ConsenSys and Vitalik Buterin himself.
