Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. Time for a short update on what’s happening the crypto space. Today let’s talk about “What’s Happening to Crypto?” What’s Happening to Crypto? No one knows. 2018 was supposed to be “the year of Crypto”. We were supposed to see Bitcoin go to $100k with institutional money coming in, ushering in the first trillion dollar market cap — perhaps even multi-trillions. Unicorns and rainbows and angels singing and all that. […]

What’s Happening to Crypto? #illumedati #crypto

Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. I was going to write about the recent pump in crypto recently, but I decided to talk about my “Cardano Blockchain Honolulu Meetup Group” instead. Cardano Blockchain Honolulu? Yea. If you didn’t already know, I’m a believer in the Cardano blockchain. I believe in their very ambitious vision. I first heard about Bitcoin back in 2012 or so, but didn’t really believe in it. However, I didn’t have the […]

Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. Today will just be a short post about the “Crypto Bear Market“. Crypto Bear Market? Yea.

There was a pretty significant “crash” which dropped it by half to about $10k or so, but we’ve just seen a slow bleed since […]

Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. Today isn’t really a crypto weekly post because I wanted to talk about something more specific… “The Crypto Crossroads“. This should be a short post. The Crypto Crossroads? Yea. A lot has changed since the advent of Bitcoin. An unknown creator and a somewhat shady past with Silk Road, but something that has stayed (mostly) constant is its immutability and security. It remains the prototype and poster child for […]

The Crypto Crossroads #illumedati

Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again and we’re actually going to do a Crypto Weekly two weeks in a row! The theme of this week’s Crypto Weekly 6/13/18 post is “Is the THE crash?” Crypto Weekly 6/13/18 There isn’t too much going on with the coins I believe in, which are Ripple (XRP) and Cardano (ADA). So their sections will be relatively short today: Ripple (XRP) The only major thing that happened was that there […]
