After the previous year we all experienced, no one can ever say that art is not essential. Without art (music, movies, shows, paintings, etc.), the human race would have gone insane. While the pandemic raged, our favorite art and artist distracted us, entertained us, and saved us.

During that time, the crypto market found its footing as well and entered a new bull cycle. With this renewed interest, the masses were introduced to Non-Fungible Tokens (NFT). Unlike a currency, NFTs are tokens that represent the ownership of a unique asset of some kind. …

Certain games in the real world never fail to attract millions of participants. During peak jackpot prizes, the Powerball and Mega Millions will see over 150 million tickets sold for a single drawing. It is only natural that such a dependable and profitable game found its way into crypto.

While other projects have attempted to master the game of lottery, the newly launched LOTTO appears to have found the perfect mix of simple, easy-to-use, and provably fair. Starting as an airdrop in January 2021 to DeFi investors, the token has grown quickly in value as well as popularity. …

Jubilee Ace came across my direct messages in Discord the other day. After passively clicking through the website, some disturbing clues of the Jubilee Ace project's intentions began to shine through. The word scam immediately came to mind. Not a low effort phishing email type scam. But a more elaborate, well-funded Bitconnect style scam that warrants everyone’s attention.

The TL;DR explanation of Jubilee Ace is an arbitrage trading platform that makes several…


Bingotto: The Next Popular Crypto Game

In the mid-2000s, in a small city in Pennsylvania, a small diner became the epicenter of a game that would become insatiable to the entire city and surrounding communities.

Today more than 8,000 residents of the area bring their $10 bill to the same small restaurant and enter into the next round of the game that we have affectionately named ‘Bingotto’.

Through word of mouth and the stories of small riches being won by the local librarian and barber, everyone began playing within a 30 mile radius. …


The Ides of March is a conspicuous time in world history. For those that do not know, March 15th is known as the Ides of March. This date is a common religious holiday among world religions and it is infamously know as the day Julius Caesar was assassinated in 44 BC.

Now, the Ides of March have a new resident of evil.

At 13:40 local time in ChurchChrist, New Zealand, a man walked into a mosque. This man was Brenton Tarrant. …


As the long summer of crypto drags on, there is not much on the surface to get excited about right now. It feels like only the most passionate individuals stuck around after the ‘Fall of Bitcoin’ to slog through the lean times. However, those that are still here will be rewarded once the market turns bullish once again.

If you are not a developer or a day trader, you do not have a lot of options for how to spend your time in crypto. …


Brock Pierce in Rincon, Puerto Rico (NY Times)

There are two parallel narratives playing out on the small island of Puerto Rico. Decimated by Hurricanes Irma and Maria in September 2017, this unincorporated territory of the United States has struggled to recover. While that process has been slow and is well into its tenth month, a new storm has appeared on the horizon. And it could take years to truly assess the impact it will have.

Shortly after the hurricanes passed and the relief efforts began, CoinTelegraph reported in February 2018 that tax advisers were telling their large cryptocurrency clients to move to Puerto Rico. The intention was…


Borrowed from The Divi Project Medium

If you have spent more than five minutes scrolling through the cryptocurrency-based hubs of Twitter, Facebook, Telegram, or Discord, you will quickly realize that men make up about 90–95% of all the users involved.

Digital currency was born from and cultivated in a male dominate subculture, cypherpunk. From there it spread to other computer-based industries like software engineering and information technology services. Eventually cryptocurrency found its way to more mainstream platforms like Reddit, Youtube, and the popular BitcoinTalk website where most new coins announce their launch and future plans of their project.

As you can easily guess, all of those…


Masternodes (MNs) are the hot ticket in alt-coins right now. They don’t require large amounts of upfront costs in equipment and electricity like Proof-of-Work (PoW) coins. They are a step up from plain ole staking coins. Every project I hear about lately is the next PIVX.

It’s not a bad thing. Personally, I love it. PoW is too resource heavy to get us closer to mass adoption. Proof-of-Stake (PoS) and MNs are most likely the future of cryptocurrency. A lot of people recognize that and it is reflected in the amount of MN coins you have been seeing developed lately.
