​Mainstream media is facing serious challenges. We see a lack of trust from the public in the news they consume. It is possible to see that the root of these problems stem from the way power is organized in a centralized way. However, using the most advanced technologies available, the media landscape is continuing to change. Social media revolutio...

The lid on the fabled "Facebook coin" project has been finally lifted in the middle of June. Libra, a name evoking an ancient unit of weight, scales of justice and a somewhat clever jab at Winklevoss' Gemini, has already been written about extensively. Though some commenters offer a dystopian vision of the future under an all-seeing corporate eye, ...
Thanks to his prolific contribution to cryptography, game theory, and the world economy via Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto seems to get a lot of lesser deserved credit. While some observers overstate his abilities by implying he (or she, or it) must have been some sort of time traveler, alien being, or artificial intelligence (which has been proven to b...

Bolstering PeersSecure, irreversible economic freedom is vital because it represents a basic foundation and stepping stone to more comprehensive independence. Not only can financial sovereignty give a passive avenue to resist a government encroaching on personal freedom, but it can also give individuals the opportunity to do the same within a domes...
Bitcoin still relies on the internet as rails to reach consensus and is thus susceptible to many traditional chokepoints. Reachable peers that are able to both send and receive connections from the Bitcoin blockchain number only slightly over 10,000. These nodes are capable of fully validating the Bitcoin Blockchain and are a vital check on miners....
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...
The same people who today preach the future will hold hundreds of competing cryptocurrencies, any of which can pass Bitcoin in importance, resolutely echo yesteryears prophets of speculatory network infrastructure bubbles. During the last few centuries, mankind has consistently found ways to transfer value more efficiently by opting into distribute...

AI in marketing is nothing new. Anyone who has ever purchased an item on Amazon has been the "victim" of content marketing via artificial intelligence (with machine learning thrown in, of course). As soon as your purchase is made, you are automatically presented with other products, along with the phrase, "Others who have purchased t...
And will Particl Disrupt the Disruptors?sponsored postThe thing that has really excited me the most this year up to and including Consensus NYC was not digitized gold, it was not the infrastructural growth of Bitcoin, it was not the tokenization of real estate or the latest smart contact platform nor has it been the number of companies that were of...
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. The whitepaper is now available at the Libra foundation website, the Facebook-led organization that will be supervising the development and governance of the token. Unlike many other to...
