In case you're curious about my 2019 in blogging. it was a good year, i'm really proud of some of these pieces. didn't have as many "hits"
less than 3 years now. tick tock
it's funny that a bot account dedicated to a thread I made on twitter once has 5x more followers than I have on here
seeing a few new faces on here. pretty cool. might transition over here more. sick of twitter, sick of culture wars, sick of people policing my tweets and my likes etc.
I also wrote a chapter for a book which was published by OUP and a paper published in a law journal (of all places!). and countless memos for the fund of course.
well, I didn't do this. probably closer to 50k words (on my public medium). still a good year in writing.
I'm not sure how many words this is, but my goal for 2019 is to publish 100,000 words of a high quality. Wrote the first 5000 today, 5% of the way there already.
getting some exposure for trashing Coinbase. at the panel I was on, the CB GC waffled on for 30 minutes (he was allocated 10 mins) and repeated his nauseous anti-bitcoin talking points to an ignorant audience.
feels good to expose these anti-bitcoin schemers on twitter and blanket them with reprisals. the solution is to shout louder. we're winning. we got this.

There's a reason our fund has been explicitly against ICOs. Find it in any of our marketing or public statements. While the other VCs were harvesting retail $ through ICO flips.
Barry signal boosted a quote of mine on twitter and I got an avalanche of criticism ("leave the poor ICOs alone!")
I've been contra ICOs from day 1. Devoted the 2nd half of my masters to a study of ICOs and why they are a poor capital formation mechanism. I will never apologize for being consistent.
the first wave of serious attacks (altcoins, fiatcoins, and corporatecoins) have failed. the next wave will likely be heavy regulation - via AML/KYC and collaborator, vichy-france-style exchanges (like coinbase) - and then full on criminalization
the drama today was an embarrassing waste of time and anyone that contributed to it should be ashamed of themselves
