Pick of the Week

If you explore only one thing – let it be Nic Carter’ treatise on BTC as a vehicle of peaceful revolution.

A whale of a week in terms of learning opportunities. As always, looking forward to reading your comments and suggestions.


Note on Sources:

Twitter & Reddit (cryptos current meta-brains) / Medium / Trybe / Hackernoon / Whaleshares / TIMM and so on/ YouTube / various podcasts and whatever else I stumble upon. The aim is a useful weekly aggregator of ideas rather than news. Though I try to keep the sources current – I’ll reference these articles and podcasts etc. as I encounter them – they may have been published just a couple of days ago or in some cases quite a bit earlier.
