Crypto & War
It feels weird writing this newsletter.
It is not because I don’t have anything to say.
It is because I don’t know if what I say is going to be even relevant this week.
It is difficult to imagine the plight of common people caught in this war. The least I could do is to acknowledge and become more aware.
I’m no expert in geopolitics or modern warfare. But I have been trying to understand more and read about the ongoing conflict from the lens of topics I am already exploring.
So, the first thing I am sharing today is related to that.
Article of the Week- What the West Fighting With Banks, Not Tanks Means for Crypto
The article/newsletter throws light on the financial and cyber warfare tactics and the role of cryptocurrency.
Long story short, Ukraine received $15M+ worth in crypto donations whereas the Russian currency fell drastically due to sanctions imposed by the West on Russia.
I am not sure to what extent this is going to deter Russia which spent 10X more than Ukraine on military last year. However, it clearly indicates that modern warfare is going beyond the traditional tanks.
Tweet of the Week: Crypto Terminology 101
A short thread explaining the key terms you might come across on topics related to crypto- Ether, Bitcoin, Blockchain, DAO, DeFi, and more!
Screenshot of the Week: Story of Personal Growth & Healing
This section is inspired by the Highlights Newsletter by Julian Shapiro.
I really resonated with this story about uncovering the self, especially what he says about hiding his repressed self underneath the extra weight and an eating disorder.
That was all from me this week!
Hope you are safe and healthy wherever you are in the world. 🙂
Until next time
