Bitcoin distribution

Q: I keep hearing about Bitcoin. I don’t understand. Can you explain if it is a good investment?

A: The cryptocurrency has long fascinated investors and journalists, and provocative headlines about the “blockchain” technology, allowing mass-hysteria. Many people are afraid even to ask: What is Bitcoin? Can someone buy? It Is not something to do with the Dark Web, and that is still vague? You may have heard that the average Bitcoin is now worth a huge amount of money. My advice is to slow down, take a breath and know where you stand.

With a weight of net neutrality

Q: This may be late, but what is your opinion about net neutrality? I am interested in your opinion of a expert.

A: The moment I login on Facebook, I stumble into a vicious discussion about net neutrality. Many people have a strong opinion about this topic, but if you asked them to define the terms of net neutrality, they would mumble a bunch of nonsense. I don’t blame them, because this discussion is large and complicated. But it is also easy to put down in its most essential parts, and many people are surprised to learn what this story is actually about. Click here for my take on net neutrality.
