Tighten that Belt!!

Hi Everyone, Over the last four years, the European Central Bank has managed to inject €2.6 trillion into the banking system in order to maintain economic stability. To be clear, these cash injections have been one of the only things propping up the economy, and even the Governor of the ECB has now admitted that. Now, €2.6 […]

The Future of Crypto

Hi Everyone, When the crypto bull market was still in session, the next big thing for Wall Street was set to be Ethereum futures. Now it seems they’re back on the menu.

Breaking the Silence

Hi Everyone, You know the thing I love most about Ethereum upgrades?… They’re silent. The last Ethereum major upgrade, known as Byzantium, went live in October of 2017 and barely any end users even noticed.

No Such Thing as Poor Publicity

Hi Everyone, Certainly, it would be better for the use case of cryptocurrencies if they remained more stable, or to see a slow but steady increase in prices. But let’s be straight, would bitcoin be as popular as it is today if not for the wild volatility? The outrageous bull run of 2017 has been […]

Ahhh… Black Friday. For those of you who are not familiar with this unique American Holiday, this is the kick off to the Christmas shopping season and the tradition is for large retailers to give ridiculous discounts on a limited supply of items and watch their customers battle (sometimes to the death) for the last […]
