Let’s Break the Internet

Hi Everyone, Cardano is by far the most philosophical of all the blockchains in the crypto-space. Its protocol has been described as more of a batch of computer science principles, than a product with a roadmap. Like Ethereum, NEO, and EOS, Cardano is a platform for creating decentralized applications. It has some really smart people […]

A Crypto U-turn

A bit of good news to start the day, this from The Economic Times in India… This is has been a topic that we’ve been watching particularly closely over the past few months as the central bank of India (the RBI) announced a ban on cryptocurrencies on April 6th. Since then several crypto companies are […]

Derailed

Hi Everyone, Another day another crypto related hack. Even though the volumes traded at the crypto exchange known as CoinRail are rather insignificant, it seems that alternative investors are taking this hack quite seriously. Despite CoinRail freezing all trading and keeping its lips sealed about specific numbers, some reports indicate that about $40 million worth […]

Think Long Term and Short

Hi Everyone, The crypto-community may have done a fair bit of Buffett-bashing and even a bit of Dimon-drubbing of late, but the fact remains that these two men are legends in the field of finance and possess vast knowledge and wisdom especially when it comes to traditional finance. This week, the dynamic duo published a […]

Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

Hi Everybody, It seems in crypto it’s always two steps forward and one step back. Even though we’re seeing more clarity from global regulators and governments, it seems the banking world just isn’t sure how to engage with blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. On the one hand we see millions being invested into research and development […]

The Problem with Democracy

Hi Everybody, In the free democracy of the United States of America, almost anyone can run for president. Winning a presidential election, on the other hand, is an entirely different matter. If you’re deep inside the crypto-space, you probably won’t be surprised to hear that John McAfee has announced his candidacy for the White House […]

Don’t Panic

Hi Everybody, If there’s one lesson we can learn from the Italian bond meltdown this week, it’s don’t panic. This is also the advice that is printed in “large friendly letters” on the cover of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. A friendly reminder that no matter how complicated things may seem and how there […]

Blockchain Art & Increased Output

Hi Everyone, One of the biggest innovations of the new technology known as “blockchain” is the ability to transfer and verify ownership over the internet. So, it’s no wonder that the first ever all-blockchain public auction was recently held in New York. The event featured a total of 10 works including the original of this […]

Finding a Golden Opportunity

Hi Everyone, Yet another attack struck the cryptocurrency market recently, this one claiming around $18 million from the Bitcoin Gold network.

Time for a Troll Party!

Hi Everyone, It’s no secret that President Donald Trump enjoys tweeting. In fact, some might say that he’s built his political career on the micro-blogging platform. One of the features that he seems to use quite often is the “block” button. Once blocked, users no longer have the option to respond to any of the […]

Happy Pizza Day!

On this day eight years ago the first ever real-world cryptocurrency transaction took place. Wherever he is, Laszlo Hanyecz is probably kicking himself for parting with 10,000 BTC for two Papa John’s pizzas. On the other hand, had that transaction never happened, Bitcoin may have forever remained a cryptographic hobby. By realizing the first ever […]

Rome wasn’t built in a day

As blockchain week in New York winds down, we’re seeing several articles like this one… What the writers of these articles fail to realize is the underlying principle behind the so-called “consensus effect” and what it’s all about. This is not “pump” and it was never about speculation or crypto trader exuberance. The theory championed […]

US Dollar Unhinged

Hi Everybody, One of the trickiest questions I’ve ever been asked by a journalist was: Aren’t cryptocurrencies just an easy way for rogue governments to skirt international sanctions? I was stumped. Certainly, we can all see the value in a currency that operates independently of governments and banks, but does that mean that adherence to […]
