Crypto Twitter truly is a weird and wonderful place full of colourful cartoon characters, self proclaimed 'influencers' and ego-centric traders locked in a fruitless battle for followers and engagement.The 'mood' of this surreal place we call home is often dictated by the current market conditions and usually changes on a daily basis. For example i...

​As a non-religious person growing up in a predominantly catholic country, I have had a lot of practice debating with intelligent friends who are also religious. Even though I will never be able to understand how they deal with the cognitive dissonance required to believe in the supernatural, in the same way, I know they will never understand how I...
Facebook announced late last year that they had been quietly working on a homegrown stablecoin that would enable peer-to-peer transfers over WhatsApp and Messenger.

I previously analyzed a debate between Roger Ver and Tone Vays. I objectively examined their arguments and talking points. I overcame my temptations to use the words: liar, dishonest and hypocrite.

I was informed about a fresh research: "When the cookie meets the blockchain: Privacy risks of web payments via cryptocurrencies". In this post I give you a brief summary of the this paper.
