Explorations of the emerging crypto-economic models and their potential implications


Networking Younger

8 Dec 2021 1 minute read 0 comments jer979!!

tl;dr: An afternoon with my nephews opens my eyes to future possibilities. I spent a few hours the other day with two of my nephews, ages 11 and 13. During that time, qw set up a Helium network node and I educated them, in so many words, about co...

Nerding Out

7 Dec 2021 1 minute read 0 comments jer979!!

My sister, daughter, and I were talking the other day about how to tell a personal story, or more simply, how to answer the question of “tell me about yourself.” My sister said, “you know how your dad loves nerding out on crypto?” that’s always a goo...

Good Strategy, Bad Strategy

3 Dec 2021 2 minute read 0 comments jer979!!

tl;dr: Without proper diagnosis, there’s no good strategy. And that’s only part of it. I’ve written about strategy a lot over the years. Some of my better posts (at least in my opinion) were on the Art of War, Gaddis’ book On Grand Strategy, and more...

Getting Rekt

2 Dec 2021 1 minute read 0 comments jer979!!

In crypto, at some point, there’s a high probability that one of your investments is going to “get rekt.” I know it has happened to me, most recently, when some assets I had deposited as liquidity into CREAM were stolen in a smart contract hack. That...

Irony of Foreign Policy

1 Dec 2021 1 minute read 1 comment jer979!!

tl;dr: the US made the Chinese rich and powerful. Now, it’s the US’ biggest problem. I’m not an expert on China or Foreign Policy, but I’ve been thinking about how the reason why China is so rich and powerful now is because of actions taken by the US...

Yield Famines and Uniswap

30 Nov 2021 1 minute read 0 comments jer979!!

tl;dr: complex feature sets are great for some, but not all. As I shared yesterday, I recently logged into Uniswap v2 and found some liquidity that I had provided a while ago, which I had forgotten about. It turns out that time can be a big ally in i...

The Psychology of Money

29 Nov 2021 4 minute read 1 comment jer979!!

tl;dr: We all deal with it. We all deal with it differently. Lessons on how to become wealthy. My friend, Tom, generously sent me a copy of The Psychology of Money: Timeless lessons on wealth, greed, and happiness. My brother had been talking it up a...

Thankful

26 Nov 2021 1 minute read 0 comments jer979!!

Today is American Thanksgiving. While I’m sure there’s a group of people for whom the holiday is problematic for one reason or another, I think the concept of a national day of thanksgiving (even if the original intent may not have been pure in the e...

How to Spot the Next Big Trend

24 Nov 2021 2 minute read 0 comments jer979!!

tl;dr: The answers are often right in front of us. I recently attended a family wedding in Dallas and, while I was there, one of my cousins-who is just a few years older than I- came up to me and said, “I don’t get NFTs.” Now, I certainly understand...

Decentralizing Crypto Security

23 Nov 2021 2 minute read 0 comments jer979!!

tl;dr:  Given the huge risks that come with smart contracts, a new protocol seeks to decentralize protection. Though the public announcement of Forta occurred about a month ago, I only recently heard about it and once I grokked the idea, I said to my...
