Note 1: My articles are now included in the “must read Bitcoin stories” section. Any article I’ve written will say “🚨BY KYLE TORPEY🚨” at the start of the article description.
Note 2: A reader pointed out that my short description of a Ripple article from FT in Friday’s issue should have said the 16 banks surveyed are not using XRP right now rather than saying they never plan to use XRP.
