This isn’t one of those I-told-you-so types of stories. I’m merely a humble observer who has been both blessed and cursed to live in the most interesting crypto-times in history, just like the rest of you. Yet, I have one legit question to ask:


Is the sudden crypto regulation “enthusiasm” on a global scale (!!) a helping hand of long-awaited and well-deserved recognition or conveniently timed arm-twisting to ensure full (centralized) control?


Congratulations @behzadsharifi! You have won 2500 XSTUSD.

In the second place, we have A Deep Dive into Crypto by @moderneremite!

Crypto is here to stay. Developers are here to build. Brands are here to grow.

Do not be mistaken by catchy doom-foreshadowing articles and videos. Their only use is to catch the attention, to profit from the resentment and other negative emotions.

In the world of abundant information, knowledge is scarce.

Take one step away from the biased information and look for the facts. Give yourself time to analyze it and come up with your own conclusions.


Congratulations @moderneremite! You have won 1500 XSTUSD.

The third position is won by Becoming a Day Trader - Interview and Introduction to Bitcoin DeFi Products by @mickey-maler

Day trading is like a fascinating game that rolls chess, poker, and gaming into an exciting package, adds the adrenaline rush of a roller coaster, and flavors it with a few dashes of lemon and a pinch of salt.


Yay, @mickey-maler! You’ve won 1000 XSTUSD.

Congratulations y’all! You can check out XSTUSD use cases here.


We will contact all the winners shortly. For updates, keep an eye on contests.hackernoon.com!
