Unlike a few years ago, there are now a ridiculous number of crypto exchanges to choose from. These range from centralised exchanges such as Binance, Coinbase and FTX, to de-centralised options including Uniswap, Sushiswap, Raydium and 1inch. It’s a highly competitive space, with vast amounts of cryptocurrency changing hands on…


Let’s be honest, most people get sucked into the world of cryptocurrencies and DeFi by one thing, the promise of riches. Sure, the technological revolution is interesting, and we all like the idea of “sticking it to the man”, but we’re mostly after one thing: money.

Illuvium is a decentralised AAA gaming studio built on Ethereum utilising Immutable X . An RPG collection and auto-battler game, Illuvium is built on a Play-to-Earn model, and is the brainchild of brothers Kieran and Aaron Warwick.

“Illuvium is an open world narrative-driven exploration game. A unique blend of…


Great article Seth. I was especially interested in how Cardano might potentially integrate & gain liquidity by using Constellation's Hypergraph.


I think markets are a natural extension of the human psyche, but with an unfortunate disconnect between cause and effect. It's easier to act morally when you have to look the person in the eye and tell them you're stealing their home or pension. …


The demand for Bitcoin has mostly been due to speculation rather than real world utility. It's been an amazingly profitable asset, if you got in early. But Distributed Ledger Technology is evolving, and there are more scaleable options around that provide real world utility, faster and cheaper. I believe the demand for cryptocurrencies and digital assets will increase exponentially with adoption, but Bitcoin dominance will wane as the opportunity cost of holding it increases. As cross-chain bridging evolves people will chase quicker gains and higher yields. As for every day purchases, there will be Stablecoins (either centralised or Algo's).

Thanks for the article - I acknowledge it was more about inflation rather than the purchasing power of BTC.


I recently wrote about Truebit Protocol, a blockchain scaling solution that could potentially fix some of Ethereum’s issues. Today I’m going to talk about a radically different distributed ledger technology, that utilises a Directed Acyclic Graph approach to achieve scaleability, security and speed. The project is Constellation Network.

Understanding the mechanisms behind TRU token value

I recently wrote an article about Truebit Protocol, an off chain scaling solution for Ethereum and other Blockchains. Although I had a small paragraph about the tokenomics, I didn’t do a great job of breaking down the price mechanisms that will kick-in when the protocol is adopted and used. I…


With countless tokens in the crypto realm, it’s sometimes the case that a “serious” project with massive potential slips through the net and goes unnoticed. Imagine if the same project shunned any offical marketing, and stealth-launched its token without fanfare or celebration. Also consider that the project in question “does…


Unfortunately, cryptocurrency hacks are on the up. According to Cipher Trace, DeFi related hacks account for 60% of the total hack and theft volume, a 25% increase from 2020. $432 million dollars was stolen in the first quarter of 2021, and since then we’ve had the $600 million PolyNetwork &…
