"True Names" by Vernor Vinge was written a **long** time ago, but is a really forward thinking piece of fiction about nyms in the digital/virtual world. It's short, and entertaining too. Adam Back is always recommending it.

He also wrote "A Fire Upon The Deep" which is one of my favourite scifi books, breathtakingly imaginative.

word=world sorry.

Also have to shout out LTB for these two podcasts. I've been a strong critic of much of their content these last few years, but these interviews on taproot with sipa and nickler, alongside the interviews with iranian and nigerian users are some of the best bitcoin content anyone's ever put out.

Just a day after Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez proposed turning the Post Officie into a bank for poorer Americans, the U.S. Postal Service reported losing $2.1 billion in just three months. Yikes.

An interesting look into CryptoCapital, shows the lengths (often shady) custodial exchanges have to go to to manage their fiat:
