This was the tweet I thought worth including in today’s newsletter. This is the way one must think about this subject, and to truly grasp its revolutionary impact on society.

Crypto requires understanding of:

1. Technology
2. Economics
3. Business
4. Cryptography
5. Finance
6. Cybersecurity
7. Monetary Policy
8. Securities law
9. Psychology
10. Sociology
11. Geo-politics
12. History

It pays to be well-rounded in this new world.
In short, fully understanding crypto requires being a polymath. As the world gets smaller, innovation increases along with chaos and uncertainty, it’s the people with the firm grasp of multiple disciplines who will see the most success. The world does not owe anyone anything, though we might imagine or wish it did. It behooves us to make the most of the knowledge we have at our fingertips now, so that when sea change happens, we’ll be equipped for the upheavals and power dynamics shifts that inevitably will occur.
Learning a wide array of subjects, such as the ones in the tweet above, will be paramount. And we have no excuses. The information is free and it is out there, right now. So read on, and keep digging. The future is coming.
