Sankalp's Blockchain Express - A Lighter Take (22nd Feb, 2019)
By Sankalp Shangari • Issue #24 • View online
“Blockchain Express” is our lighter take on everything blockchain. Sometimes non Blockchain interesting stuff as well. Twitter and Social Media plagiarism at its best…..

JPM Coin, pension funds joining the race, Wyoming again, BTC over radio waves and ARAX Crypto App, Rise of MKR DAO and its DAI…..onwards and upwards……

Onwards & Upwards.....
1/Biggest news of the week was from JP Morgan launching it’s own digital currency - do not confuse with crypto currency. This is a private currency for now - but soon could replace Ripple etc. I have tried to cover some great narratives here in this post - Top 10 JPM Coin Narratives
Pomp 🌪
The most popular token for money laundering this year will be JPM Coin
So happy I got in the jp morgan coin ico. Selling OTC at 35x if anybody is interested DM me
2/Wyoming passed 3 blockchain bills & continues to lead the state race for clean and forward looking crypto regulations there. and Caitlin Long is the champion for this passage of bills. Did you know Wyoming was the least densely populated state? Or am I missing something?

3/Well done POMP
JUST IN: In a potential first for the crypto investment sector, two U.S. public pension funds are dipping their toes in Morgan Creek's latest vehicle. Report by @BradyDale
You might be able to hack @APompliano’s twitter account, but guess what. You can’t hack bitcoin.
4/👇This was coolest thing for me - Bitcoin send over Radio waves
Chris Mac
Bitcoin sent using radio waves. No internet required.
Second attempt today, through the #SnowStorm.

Sending free #Bitcoin over #JS8Call [7.077Mhz]

To RX you don't need a Ham license–in most countries. Get your SDR connected to @js8call and a 7Mhz (40m) antenna.

*(for experimental non-commercial purpose)
5/And lastly but awesomely….ARAX launches a multi-currency multi blockchain multi services wallet - Mass adoption is also coming…Stay tuned and download!!!
Arax supports 12 of your favourite coins across multiple blockchains and adding more in coming weeks.

@giacomozucco I will wear my Litecoin and Decred t-shirts so thieves will laugh and avoid me.

What a snake. Vinny was one of the biggest proponents of SegWit2x and the New York Agreement. Now he's campaigning for smaller blocks. A true opportunist.

Great research by Bitmex. Huge debt levels are looming again, worse than 2008. Crisis around the corner and no Paulsen this time?

Anatomy Of The Next Global Financial Crisis

In 2008 risk was elevated by leverage in the banking system & the securitisation of the mortgage market. Today the equivalent risk is in the asset management industry, in particular the corporate debt market

0/ Two absolutely amazing essays by @duganist and @delitzer

While written from wildly different perspectives, they touch on a lot of the same issues - and come to generally the same conclusion:

Bear market reminders- BTC is the hardest money we've ever had in the history of humanity. Print this out and put it next to your computer.

Two worst things you could be is a young know-it-all or an old fool. I was already one of these, trying to avoid being the other.
