    ... I say good because the circus has finally left town, the cameras have packed up and gone home, the reporters are losing interest. The story is finished.

    And now the crypto community can get back to doing the hard work of building the future in peace and quiet.

    Blockchain is not only crappy technology but a bad vision for the future.

    ... If that’s your game, stick to my easy button strategy, Mastering Shitcoins, the Poor Man’s Guide to Getting Crypto Rich. In my opinion, that’s the best way for someone who has a life and obligations and a family and who can’t afford to stay welded to their computer screen all day.
