This episode includes an audio blog of the recent post “Help me buy some cryptocurrency!”, which was written *before* the crazy price action of May 2019… but stands by every word of warning about responsible investing, doing your own research, and not getting carried away.
If you have either listened or read and you want to get started buying your first cryptocurrency, here’s the link to Coinbase as discussed. This link helps support the show, and fund the creation of educational material like this.
We also return to our much-missed Crypto Alphabet, and have a look at “network effects” – did you know that this is fundamental to the successful functioning of any means of exchange or communication, not just cryptocurrency? But it’s something we take for granted, until we have to engineer it in the first place, or understand why it’s so important.
