I don't know about you but I think the best love letters come from Uncle Sam. And by "best," I really mean "worst."

Sometimes you have to revisit the basics. So, let's do it!

What is blockchain?

I'm back (again)! If you are as annoyed with me as I am, know that I've officially committed to more consistent posting in 2019. Now on to the news...

One of our favorite regulators decided to give us an early Christmas gift this year. On November 27, the Commodities Future Trading Commissi...

I'm still learning the lingo of markets and finance so I don't know if there is a better word to characterize the current state of the cryptocurrency market ("bear" just doesn't feel strong enough). However, the current bear market has been absolutely brutal. Brutal. So it's not surprising that many...

I had a few "technical difficulties" but I'm back!

I had to take an expectedly unexpected hiatus for a few months to travel, close out FY18 (insanity!) and recover. But I'm back--and just in time for next week's DC Fintech Week hosted by Georgetown Law. My attendance at this conference last year is a...
