In the spirit of a Tim Ferriss 5-Bullet Friday, here is a brief run-down of some of the latest and most interesting crypto tidbits.
Educational: http://www.bitcoin.kn/2017/10/story-bitcoin-blockchain/ – Please listen. One of the most informative and intelligent podcasts I’ve listened to recently. It covers the beginnings of blockchain/bitcoin and takes the listener into the future. Most of the episode is done by Trace Mayer (entrepreneur and investor in bitcoin when at $.25 USD). He speaks very intelligently – “below the surface” of most of the media – about the modern polymath geniuses that have aligned in support of blockchain technology, the importance of monetary sovereignty and very eloquently (and believably) lays out the future of blockchain. Fascinating.
Technical: Record price for Ethereum – https://www.investopedia.com/news/bitcoin-price-sets-new-record-and-ethereum-follows-suit/ – After trading rather tightly (for a cryptocurrency) for the past two months, ETH broke out of a cup/handle base and has risen ~40% over the past 10 days. If you’re not glued to your Coinbase app, you can track the current price here: https://ethereumprice.org/.
- Interesting that this article from 11/14 was a timely foreshadowing of the price increase: https://seekingalpha.com/article/4124513-buy-ethereum-now-tech-takes.
News: There is so much clutter out there. The most interesting articles to me surround adoption. Please note here that Ensource has not independently verified these articles. We just read them.
- Belarus To Legalize Cryptocurrency – this is interesting because many developing countries have outlawed it (under the premise of fraudulent use. My belief is that crypto in the developing world is viewed as a threat to state sovereignty/central banks where national currencies are depreciating rapidly.)
- Phillippines to Legalize Cryptocurrency
- CBOE to Launch Bitcoin Futures
