As usual lots to take-in this week from the continuing shenanigans of Craig Wright to JP Morgan’s clear inability to grasp the value proposition of crypto. This week I’ve highlighted Hackernoon – with all but one of the listed articles being sourced from the website. The quality of crypto/tech-related material published on Hackernoon is first rate. Each one of the articles listed below is informative, valuable and current.
Picks of the Week
Hands down the most interesting article I’ve read in quite some time is ‘Crypto is the New Fiat‘ by Conceptskip. While I don’t necessarily agree with all of the points raised – each and every one is worth contemplating.

I’m sort of traumatized by watching this – but highly recommend it nonetheless:

Beware looking at the past to ‘confidently predict’ the future price action of BTC:

It’s a busy DApp landscape but not all protocols are equally enticing to developers:
Website / Utility
Obsessing about the Bitcoin Halving? This site has you covered:

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.
