BTW, have you checked out Milk Road?
It’s a new crypto newsletter that we’ve been reading. We heard about it a few times from people we respect on Twitter before finally subscribing… and we have to say… it’s awesome.
If you like the Vancouver Tech Journal, you’ll like The Milk Road.
It’s got that great mix of smart stuff and jokes. And crypto is changing so fast, it’s great to just read a super quick and simple summary of the big news each day. It was started by @shaanvp (famous twitter guy), so it got pretty popular quickly (100k+ subscribers this year).
If you wanna keep up with crypto —> highly recommend checking it out.
