  • Chris Burniske on Steem Partner at Placeholder Ventures

    STEEM's SMTs are like ETH's "ERC-20 tokens but with certain built-in ‘Proof-of-Brain’ properties...specifically for digital content businesses"... (hat tip Jesse Walden). Good work Steemit and team, compensating human activity instead of machine activity is 🤔💭💭

    Decred’s killer feature is good governance, and with good governance, you can have any feature you want.

  • Chris Burniske on Tron Partner at Placeholder Ventures

    I find the behavior of Justin Sun and the TRON Foundation appalling and would recommend avoiding the project.

    For one, as Juan Benet points out, the plagiarism within TRON Foundation's white paper is intellectually dishonest and ungrateful to prior crypto efforts.

    Secondly, inspect the Twitter feeds of Justin Sun and the TRON Foundation. Both represent a litany of repetitive pumps about crypto exchange listings and partnerships.

  • Chris Burniske on Bittorrent Token Partner at Placeholder Ventures

    Tron Foundation’s TRX is pumping because it will allow people to claim BitTorrent-coin (BTT).

    Though, per tweets like Bram’s & other whispers, Tron is just shilling BitTorrent’s brand, while talent bleeds & workability of BTT is an afterthought.

  • Cathie Wood on Bitcoin Founder and CEO of Ark Invest

    Bitcoin offers a strategic allocation to a new asset class with the potential for capital appreciation.

    Strategic allocation:
    * Bitcoin can be a portfolio diversifier
    * Bitcoin should offer negative or neutral correlations to traditional asset classes
    * Bitcoin may provide strong tail risk mitigation during times of market stress

    Appreciation potential:
    * Bitcoin is a store of value with certain assurances of monetary integrity
    * Bitcoin could be a tool to protect against arbitrary wealth seizure
    * Bitcoin is a potential medium of exchange and catalyst for currency demonetization
