From Utility to Security - Shift in progress From Utility to Security - Shift in progress
January 16, 2019 4:28 AM The words ?utility token? and ?security token? should ring a bell to everyone in the Blockchain community. Beyond completely misunderstood, they are polarizing in a nearly religious fashion. For this reason, we figured that we ought to drill deep into the details of the subject and give our readers a full-scale comprehensive study. Let?s dive in, but how about some psychology to begin with? There is a common consensus that psychopaths are individuals with damaged amygdales. There is also a problem with common consensus or ? to use the psychology term ? collective psych. They blur the boundaries between the factual and the mythical. So, are we dealing with a fact or a myth? Because for a long time, I believed that Napoleon was ugly short ? which motivated his domineering behavior. I also presumed that the Great Wall of China is visible from space. Well, the first is a derogatory social stereotype. The second is a space myth.

Emerging shift to a crypto-powered gold standard Emerging shift to a crypto-powered gold standard
January 09, 2019 3:54 PM All currencies used to be backed by the value of gold ? the Gold Standard. Then, economic mechanisms developed over time to a point where a handful of people had the means to conjure trillions of dollars, euro, renminbi, and pounds out of thin air. For example, in the 1971, brutal Ugandan dictator Idi Amin raised military spending by 500%, which spiked inflation 700%. When an ex-finance minister warned that Uganda was headed towards bankruptcy because of bloated military spending, Amins answer was ?Print more money.? Fiat trickery was openly flaunted in the 1970s by Ugandan strongman Idi Amin Amin doubled the money supply between 1976 and 1978. On the ground, gasoline cost $39 per gallon and sugar $5 a pound, with the monthly minimum wage set at $30. What was once the dastardly action of a brutal African dictator is now mainstream.

Overcoming ShapeShift's Crypto Winter and the Path Ahead | A note from Erik Voorhees, Founder & CEO Overcoming ShapeShift's Crypto Winter and the Path Ahead | A note from Erik Voorhees, Founder & CEO
January 09, 2019 1:46 AM A note from Erik Voorhees, Founder & CEO The latest crypto winter is upon us, and today ShapeShift felt the bitter frost. Today, we let 37 employees go, reducing the size of our team by a third. It?s a deep and painful reduction, mirrored across many crypto companies in this latest bear market cycle. Crypto, like the moon we strive toward, is a harsh mistress. We ride high and fast during the ascents, growing at rates unseen almost anywhere else in the business world (ShapeShift grew 3,000% in 2017). And when the markets turn, the crypto recession is similarly dramatic and severe. None of it surprises those who have been through these cycles. But even with that experience, navigating these tumultuous seas is a continual lesson in humility.
