How does Cosmos work? How does it compare to Bitcoin and Ethereum? (Pt. 1)

The crypto industry never really rests. It all started with the launch of Bitcoin in 2010. When it first came out, everyone thought Bitcoin was the holy grail of digital currencies. What was once believed to be impossible was now real: The first ever peer-to-peer (P2P) payments network. Even today, trust in anything remains the most elusive and rarest asset.

Stop attaching your identity to your ideas

A person's identity is inseparable from their ideas. This is human nature. We construct our identities around our ideas — we become what we believe. But you know what? All too often, people take this too far. They place themselves in a “bubble” and only listen to ideas that reaffirm their own beliefs. Everything else gets dismissed as “false”.

How do you win a Twitter debate?

Do you watch Game of Thrones? In one of the earlier seasons, there's a great quote: “When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground.” Twitter debates are a lot like Game of Thrones — except they're even more vicious. And there's no way to win. You honestly have better odds at winning the lottery, going to Mars, or walking on water.
