This entry is part 1 of 8 in the series Sunday Recap

It’s been another interesting, mad and outright bad week in crypto. Negative price action and project infighting notwithstanding, the flow of ideas and the clash of concepts has been as active as ever.

As usual, I’ve selected the articles etc. because I found them enlightening, compelling or challenging in some fashion. I don’t necessarily agree with the sentiments of each Tweet or article but aim to provide a door into the competing narratives that comprise crypto. I should also own up that on occasion I struggle to even grasp the concept covered as in the case of Karl Friston’s ‘Free Energy Principle’ but of course that’s no reason to believe you won’t take it onboard without issue.


Twitter & Reddit (cryptos current meta-brains) / Medium / Trybe / Hackernoon / Whaleshares and so on/ YouTube / various podcasts and whatever else I stumble upon.

The aim is a useful weekly aggregator of ideas rather than news.

Please note though I try to keep the sources current – I’ll reference these articles and podcasts etc. as I encounter them – they may have been published just a couple of days ago or in some cases quite a bit earlier.

    Valuable links! Thanks for sharing. I think this week has been chaotic mostly for bitcoin and the USD value of the market because alts bounced and held through this panic selling. Crypto needs to be more decentralized when it comes to valuation, if not we are all going to suffer the funnel effect Bitcoin price has on every project (people sell alts, to sell bitcoin for dollars, crashing all markets in a rush to exit first).

    You are indeed an authority when it comes to current information about Crypto! I am still struggling to wrap my head around the intricacies of Trybe tokens, Steem and Bitcoin…laughable eh? I know! Having fun learning about it gradually all the same. Given this a 5 star rating and recommended it as well. Also shared on Twitter. You are awesome! Cheers.

        Haha thanks so much man! I just was super busy with a lot of trips in the middle (3 continents) but I’m happy to be back 🙂

        I learn a lot here and I love the vibe, thanks to you and others for the great energy and the insights that everyone keeps sharing.

        Your posts are definitely worth my time of course, and I’ll be looking forward to the Sunday recaps!
