Long Reads Sunday #25. Crypto winter is settling in thick and cold and this week, it’s all about competition for the narrative. How to address Bitcoin skeptics? Can Ethereum recover? Is crypto a tool for freedom, state power, or both? And WTF is 2019 going to be? Buckle up! 👇
2/ Let’s start with one of the most important threads you’ll read this bear market. @PeterMcCormack tells the tale of turning $32k to $1.2m to zero. In a week when so much is about narrative and spin, the unvarnished realness here is a breath of fresh air.
3/ Speaking of realness, @abztrdr really has a novelist's eye for detail and a poet’s sense of beauty to his own understated thread about the markets. Read this whole thread - I promise you’ll come away with all the feels.

1/ Long Reads Sunday #14. Daaaamn crypto, you really went for it. This was a week full of big announcements, market manipulation, regulatory enforcement, and a dash of various other assorted intrigue. Strap in, folks, it’s long reads time.
2/ One LRS note. Last week I announced that we’re taking this conversation off Twitter and into the realm of live. Well, it’s happening this MONDAY ~7pm EST. My first guest co-host will be @Travis_Kling and I couldn’t be more excited. More guests TBA soon.…
3/ Little has gotten our big-little industry yapping like the Bitmain IPO. For weeks, the convo has been intrigue w BCH, but with the IPO filing, @katherineykwu @MessariCrypto hulked out & summarized all the numbers.

Drumroll please 🥁 are the most clicked links from last week's Long Reads Sunday.…
#5 One of the godfathers of the crypto space (as in, inventor of things like blind signatures OG) has a new blockchain project. @Adam_Tache recaps a recent presentation, summarizing everything shared so far
#4 At last weeks #bh2018, @brucefenton delivered this presentation arguing about how distributed ledgers will change traditional securities systems and, importantly, why the cypherpunk set should care.

1/ Long Reads Sunday #13. What a week it was. We saw: XRP surge and (momentarily) flip ETH; a massive ratchet up in scrutiny around exchanges; a significant Bitcoin bug and so much more. Get your coffee black and steaming, it’s long reads time.
2/ Firstly, damn XRP. Ripple went crazy this week, doubling its market cap Thursday-Friday and bringing back echoes of 2017. @crypto_macro pointed to a couple of the better attempts at explanation.
3/ One part of the XRP surge story seems to have been significant volumes on BitMEX. If 2017 was the year of altcoins buying on Binance et al, 2018 has been all about leveraged trading, shorts, and perpetual swaps on BitMEX.

1/ Here are the slides from my talk at #BH2018 Baltic Honey Badger by Hodl Hodl

My goal is to explain:
- why stocks/ securities are a foundation of global commerce
- how ledgers work now
- why Cypherpunks, Bitcoiners & free market economists should care

Past, Present & Future
2/ Understanding the problems and how ledgers currently work is key to addressing some major points people often ask about:

- the value of a blockchain or token
- why a database can’t be used
3/ Securities tokens will include many scams & many low quality offerings - if a securities token revolution occurs it may bring with it a large number of fraudulent & low quality offerings just like the ICO wave

However legit securities themselves are a key part of economics
