All You Need To Know About Cryptocurrency Wallets

by Collins Brown, CEO & co-founder of MARKET Protocol A lot of people think of their cryptocurrency wallet as merely a digitized version of a real wallet that is used for storing funds.

Gary Numan might be thought of as a one-hit wonder by the casual pop music fan thanks to mega-hit “Cars,” or maybe a two-hitter if you count “Are Friends Electric?,” but anyone with passable knowledge of electronic music recognizes him as on...

As I wrote here recently, some of my media colleagues in 2014 wanted to hear nothing about Bitcoin or cryptocurrency and I was effectively shunned from some of the shows I'd gotten used to guesting on. Today? Not a day goes by that someone isn't emailing me or DMing me on Twitter, desperately asking how to buy Bitcoin. How to get in. How to store it. You know, the newbie questions. Man, it really got me down for a while - being told I was promoting som...
