How much should I store?
Let’s start off with this basic question. The answer is…it depends. What it depends on is a number of factors, several of which should hopefully be obvious. Are there special health considerations to consider, i.e. a diabetic or celiac conditions? How many people am I storing for and what are their ages? Age is an especially important point to consider. A growing child will need about as much nourishment as an fairly active man would, if not more. Similarly, older people, especially those less active, need less.

Although much of this is indubitable, it also has a flip side. Tradition is practical not because of any intrinsic quality, but the process through which knowledge, habits, and skills are transferred across generations. Th…

Sports Betting & Blockchain

The sports betting industry is huge - Soccer alone attracts 250 million people willing to put money on what team is going to win or who is going to score. The industry is also extremely regulated in most of the world and heavily relies on money that can be traced and taxed. Sounds ripe for innovation, right?

There are hundreds of projects out there that seek to be your next blockchain-bookie and competition is fierce, which is a good spot to be in if you are like me and like to do some gambling. It's not as good as it could be though - This post is going to be a wish list; A small injection of ideas of things that would really open my wallet (and hopefully others in the same swing). But before that, let's start with taking a peek at what's currently going on in the niche.
