What is Crypto Ping Pong digest?

So all the TC lads here are working quite hard and from time to time we gotta chill.

That’s why we got ourselves a ping pong table to complete our lazy-bag-stuffed chill zone. As you all know our main hobby is Crypto, so even while we play we don’t really shut up about it. Ever.

During the game, we have a rule not to discuss serious topics like analytics, predictions, etc.

So memes, leaks, gossips naturally come about – we collect them and share them with you in this interstellar space on our site we like to call Crypto Ping Pong digest.
