A new year upon us but no rest for the crypto wicked. Lots to take in this last week from a rare fair mainstream article on crypto to MimbleWimble explored, 2018 predictions revisited and new ones made, to a very interesting take on DPOS from an Asian based EOS sister chain. A lot has been left on the editing floor but hopefully what remains will be of interest and or use to crypto enthusiasts and newcomers alike. As always, I don't necessarily agree with the conclusions of each tweeted perspective or the analysis of every article but found within them something challenging/interesting/compelling.

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 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.
