Sunday Recap - Down the Rabbit Hole 6

December 8, 2018

 

Time to drag our eyes away from a sea of red and focus instead on the wider and ultimately more important developments in the cryptoverse.  In some ways this weekly recap writes itself- I find myself increasingly engaged in a rear-guard cutting action. Editing out rather than levering in. There's just so much to a week in crypto. To those of you who find these recaps a tad too long - feel free to skim. As it is, this is a truly 'condensed' version of the last weeks narratives, themes, ideas, and events.

 

As usual, I’ve selected the articles etc. because I found them enlightening, compelling or challenging in some fashion. I don’t necessarily agree with the sentiments of each Tweet or article but aim to provide a door into the competing narratives that comprise crypto.

 

Twitter

 

The SEC won't have it all it's own way when it comes to ICO's:

And there you have it – this week’s ideas recap. Let me know what you think – all comments, recommendations, and critiques welcome.

 

 

Note on Sources:

 

Twitter & Reddit (cryptos current meta-brains) / Medium / Trybe / Hackernoon / Whaleshares and so on/ YouTube / various podcasts and whatever else I stumble upon. The aim is a useful weekly aggregator of ideas rather than new. 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.
