If you’re new to this series you can check out the first instalment here. In summary, the purpose of this weekly series is to recap some of the interesting ideas and concepts across a wide range of disciplines which each and every week in crypto seems to throw up. This ‘learners paradise’ is a great space to explore but also asks a lot of those who delve into it.
Got a grasp on basic programming logic, how about Keynesian economics, or quantum computing or the distinction between permissioned versus permissionless blockchains and on and on? Taking a moment to reflect or recap on the recent concepts and ideas crossing the crypto landscape can be very beneficial whether you are a hardcore day trader or just exploring a casual interest in the space.
It’s important to note that not every idea here reflects my own bias or opinion. If it’s here, it’s because it made me think.
Twitter & Reddit (cryptos current meta-brains) / Medium / Trybe / Hackernoon / Whaleshares and so on/ YouTube / various podcasts and whatever else I stumble upon.
What I’m aiming for is a useful weekly aggregator of ideas rather than news.
