That’s the debate we’re having today. On Ethereum’s side we have Ethereum Researcher Justin Drake, and on the Solana’s we have Solana’s Co-Founder Anatoly Yakovenko. They give us the good, the bad and the ugly of each other’s blockchain, settling their endgame towards the end of the episode.  This was one, if not the spiciest debate we had on the show. We tried our best to give both guests time with minimal intervention. At times went well, at others it caused deep semantic rabbit holes. But overall both guests were able to communicate their messages. ------ 📣 SPOTIFY PREMIUM RSS FEED | USE CODE: SPOTIFY24  https://bankless.cc/spotify-premium  ------ BANKLESS SPONSOR TOOLS: 🐙KRAKEN | MOST-TRUSTED CRYPTO EXCHANGE https://k.xyz/bankless-pod-q2    ⁠ 🔗CELO | CEL2 COMING SOON https://bankless.cc/Celo    🏠 CASA | SECURE YOUR GENERATIONAL WEALTH https://bankless.cc/Casa.  🛞MANTLE | MODULAR LAYER 2 NETWORK https://bankless.cc/Mantle  🌐 TRANSPORTER | CROSS CHAINS WITH CONFIDENCE https://transporter.io/  ⚡️ CARTESI | LINUX-POWERED ROLLUPS https://bankless.cc/CartesiGovernance  ------ TIMESTAMPS   0:00 Intro 7:16 The Good 22:30 The Bad 52:03 Global Shared State 1:06:07 Economic Security 1:30:08 The Ugly 1:47:23 The Endgame 1:55:22 Closing & Disclaimers ------ RESOURCES Anatoly Yakovenko https://twitter.com/aeyakovenko   Justin Drake https://twitter.com/drakefjustin   ------ Not financial or tax advice.

That’s the question we ask Byron Tau, an investigative journalist and author of “Means of Control'' that covers all about the US surveillance state. Turns out the US Government has a digital dossier of every citizen, but how? How do they collect the data? How are they using it? Can we ever get back our digital privacy?

Hello. I still think that one of the most proven ways to make money in 2022 is to invest in little-known coins, but promising ones. At first I asked for help, but now I'm trying to trade myself. You should also read the article https://changelly.com/blog/cheap-crypto-to-buy-now/ where you can find just such coins. You may also be interested in trading if you are not afraid to take risks.
