Build vs buy for crypto projects

"There’s a business concept called “build vs buy.” Given a business need, should the business buy a product or service from another company or build their own? For traditional businesses, the answer is almost always buy. But for crypto projects, the incentives flip, and it can make more sense to build."

On Fair Token Launches

"Fair launches have always been lauded as the holy grail for a cryptocurrency. The problem is, how can a launch be fair when we are currently in a time when assets have absurd valuations before launch, are typically sold, and even the ones that aren’t sold are already treated with speculation?"

Bitcoin Is a Cult, Fiat Is a Religion

"The cult label can be seen as a pejorative but I will attempt to explain here how it is a perfectly reasonable and necessary description of Bitcoin. A cult is just a religion with limited membership status and social acceptance. Musician Frank Zappa cleverly stated that “the only difference between a religion and a cult is the amount of real estate they own”. So if Bitcoin is a cult, fiat money is a religion."
