Another tumultuous week in crypto. As many projects continue to bleed-out the highway of ideas has only ramped up. Competing narratives have dug their heels in, and much digital ink has been spilled in the pursuit of winning arguments. This week I’ve expanded the Twitter section in recognition of the heightened back and forth of idea and perspectives.
It’s important to note that not every idea here reflects my own bias or opinion. If it’s here, it’s because it made me think.
Twitter & Reddit (cryptos current meta-brains) / Medium / Trybe / Hackernoon / Whaleshares and so on/ YouTube / various podcasts and whatever else I stumble upon.
So aiming for a useful weekly aggregator of ideas rather than a rehash of the week’s news.
Please note 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 quite a bit earlier.
