The entry point to this topic is a seemingly-innocent one: "How do pre-sales and ICOs work?". First, you're given a special opportunity as an early adopter. Second, it's time-limited and quantity-limited; there are only so many coins available at thi...

Lately, I've been seeing a lot of angst about Elon Musk, and his ability to affect the price of crypto. Here's two thoughts: 1. Who cares? If you are in it for the long haul, whatever he touches off will correct eventually. If you're not, then SELL S...

An Excess of Safety

11 Sep 2021 2 minute read 1 comment TabbyTabby

There is something beautiful in raw, strange things. They do not conform to you. You must adapt to them. Crypto is still in this stage of being raw and strange, without the kind of protections from yourself or from ordinary dangers. A friend told me...

More Than Economic Freedom

Do I have your attention? Good, because this is important.  Are you an Exodus software wallet user? I am -- huge fan. However, if you're like me, you'd like an online version a la Metamask. I've searched for it, and come across a sketchy site. I didn...
