  • We are in the growth stage of DeFi where new protocols are showering participants, and themselves, with governance tokens.
  • Rewards from one protocol are re-invested in another protocol to earn more rewards, and so on. The system is multi-layered.

Six reasons I’m considering maximalism.

  2. What are the competitive advantages of Celo? My view is a) stables and b) optics bridge.
  3. How Bitcoin Lightning is used for real world payments? El Salvador have now rolled out for paying using Bitcoin Lightning. Actually, payments can be denominated in US dollars, but they are routed through the lightning network. I was skeptical but I think this could make sense.

  4. How to donate to UBI using crypto — Give Crypto. This is focused on Venezuela and supported by Vitalik, Brian Armstrong of Coinbase and Balaji. It’s unclear form the website how donors are chosen other than “ambassadors on the ground”.
