Silly, Stupid Lists. Why Crypto MarketCap Lists are BS | CryptoConscious

Here’s a hot take: All crypto asset price trackers currently provide silly, stupid lists.  Let me explain why. No matter whether you get price data from CoinMarketCap, CoinGecko, CryptoCompare, CoinLib, CoinCap, the newly launched OpenMarketCap, or even your favorite exchange: you always get a simple list that ranks all kinds of crypto assets in a…… Continue reading Silly, Stupid Lists.

Untangling the Different Crypto Innovation Streams | CryptoConscious #5

This installment of CryptoConscious is overdue. Sorry! This post took me more than one hour and partial publishing didn’t make sense imho.  Some of you might know that I’m a big proponent of clarity, precision, and nuance.
