The biggest dildo in crypto…

Yeah, yeah, I know he’s apparently the most successful person in the space, but that doesn’t change my contempt for him. This won’t be a long post, it is mainly just an additional follow up on a comment made in the post I did last week: To which I responded: “As I said, this is … Read more

Do the Bartman!

After reading up on the fascinating price moves of Nickle on T’s Nickle post the other day, it reminded me of a trading phenonium observed fairly frequently within the crypto world – the Bartman! The above images taken this morning when I began typing this out Sat, 12 March 12:18pm. It is functionally a basic … Read more

Progressive Saviour Complex?

Is it just me or as DLS ages is he increasingly transforming from a polemic ‘veteran radical centrist’ to a menopausal woman? Far from being the razor sharp observations stabbing at the heart of our political hubris that drives ALL the players in our politco-media-developer economy, DLS’s political rants bear an increasing resemblance to shrill … Read more

A shift in the narrative?

Interesting article on bloomberg: But I wonder why they could be running with the above story now? Could it be because of this? “This hospitalisation was necessary because of a serious complication due to a dysfunction of the immune system,” the statement said. “As a result, all official activities of the President of the … Read more

Caught this article by Leith this morning on the Grattan Institute,  “Gridlock: Removing barriers to policy reform”, which argues that Australia’s prosperity is at risk from a decade-plus of decay across our political institutions.

A couple weeks back I wrote ‘UTXO and Other Blockchains‘ and mainly expanded on the difference between UTXO and ‘State’ based blockchains, and touched on … Read more

The EZFKA lens…

EZFKA – or the Economic Zone Formally Known as Australia is a conceptual framework for looking at the post modern economies of Australia and indeed the rest of the West: “Face facts, we no longer live in a society and nation by the name of Australia – we now live in the ‘Economic Zone Formally … Read more

UTXO (and other blockchains)

The other week on the ‘Binance thread post, in the comments section T made a request that I expand on and describe some other blockchains: “Hey mate can you do something on the more interesting tech type coins. So thinking Cardano vs ETH, or Helium, or Theta coin etc. The ones where there is purpotedly … Read more

Stranger Things: The Commodore 64 Version

Warning this is completely unrelated to anything economic, bitcoin or outside the Overton window – this is a self indulgent journey into nerdy 1980’s nostalgia. Anyone who is not GenX would probably not be aware or know of any other age of the personal computer other than the era of the PC. But way back … Read more
