Who reads it?

The Something Interesting community is a group of deep thinkers from across tech and finance who are interested in the cryptocurrency revolution but have neither the time nor the interest in sifting through the shills, scams and snake oil whitepapers to figure out the real truth. Our goal is to process the mountain of information that crypto generates every day and bring back a handful of diamonds, along with the context you need to understand why they are interesting or important.
