Welcome to the 31st edition of this email. Did you know you can read past editions right here?
I’ve heard Japan is starting to swelter! On the weekend in Melbourne I started to see my misty breath in the air. The chill is starting to set in down here in the south.
Happily I’m at a snowy mountain right now…
Blockchain technologies and cryptocurrencies continue to awe and inspire me with ideas for the future. Join me in reading these fascinating insights over a coffee and a spectacular view:
“A tipping point could be reached where people will realize ‘that data belongs to me.'”
- Examples of Blockchain uses beyond money / currency. Thx Lucy. (Claire S – there’s a good Tesla Powerwall example.)
- “What if you opened Spotify and paid the artist directly?”
- “Lots of great things have happened, but overall the benefits of the digital age have been asymmetrical. For example, we have this great asset of data that’s been created by us, and yet we don’t get to keep it. It’s owned by a tiny handful”
- “The blockchain is …a platform for truth and it’s a platform for trust. The implications are staggering, not just for the financial-services industry but also right across virtually every aspect of society.” McKinsey & co.
- How Blockchains will transform markets from master-tweeter Naval.
- Keep up to date with cryptocurrencies – especially good to read if you’re investing in BTC, ETH etc.
- Current prices of cryptocurrencies. Last week there were 863 currencies listed here and now…
- If you’re thinking of investing in Ethereum and aren’t sure where to start, this could inform you. It could also be a bit too heavy on words such as “exchanges”. If so, read below this amazing view…
