Hey ReFi Nation! ๐Ÿ‘‹

John Ellison here getting the ReFi Roundup over the line after another abundant week at the intersection of regeneration and web3. It's been a beauty.

Imagine this: Next time you read ReFi Roundup will be post-merge. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
Let's keep our fingers crossed and hopes all goes according to plan!

Here's a quick recap of what happened in ReFi this week, followed by a short stint of ReFi Bites and ReFi Events!
