The Sunday Recap - Down the Rabbit Hole 17

February 23, 2019

 

 Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance.

Confucius
 

Easily stated, heads nodding sagely, then promptly ignored and back to Facebook for crypto outlook. I guess my point is that if you intend to play in this space for a number of years - look under the hood.

 

This week in crypto was as frenetic as usual. Samsung threw the crypto dog a nice juicy bone with an integrated hardware wallet on its next generation of phones. EOS poked its head above the parapet. Market sentiment turned vaguely optimistic (let's respect the trend for now). Picked up an extended reading list from Jim O Shaughnessy. Waded through an argument that BTC security may have long-term security limitations (I disagree but there you have it). Enjoyed a short podcast discussing the Korean crypto scene (I track the Korean exchanges as I consider them a market bellwether and found myself happily head wagging as Andreas Antonopoulos dismantled 'banking oversight'.

 

The posts are selected for the interest and thoughtful perspectives they offer. I don't necessarily agree with each and every one of them.

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.
