Where’s the Love?

Hey. Usually, I post on topics that I hope you find informative or interesting. This time, I won’t.

Last Friday, I posted an article on my blog about Bakkt. That weekend, Altcoin Magazine and Hacker Noon both picked it up and a few people re-tweeted it. Traffic on my website exploded.

This past week, for the first time, I noticed influencers and other online personalities shared similar my words and thoughts. These people are not famous but they’re far better known than I am.

Then, a few days ago, I posted my thoughts about the U.S. government’s settlement with Block.one.

Again, I noticed some of my content echoed around the cryptosphere (through other people).

Maybe a coincidence, I don’t know, but before I posted, I didn’t see anybody talking about things the way I talked about them. After I posted, I saw people talking about things the way I talked about them.

We are one

I don’t have a monopoly on perspective, so I’m not saying anybody used my ideas or borrowed my words. I’m also happy others share a similar viewpoint, and I’m super-stoked that people like my writing.

But, if you do use my ideas or borrow my words, can you please give me a little credit for it? Maybe mention my name? Link to my website or say something about my book?

Better yet, let’s connect—drop me an email or DM me. I’m happy to make an acquaintance!

I have a very small voice in this industry and I make no money from this blog. If you like the work that I’m doing I would love if you could help me make my voice heard. We’re all in this together.

Thank you. Relax and enjoy the ride!
