La Rivoluzione delle Criptovalute è già in Corso
Di Fritz-Anton Fritzson. Originale pubblicato il 31 ottobre 2019 con il titolo The Cryptocurrency Revolution is Already Underway. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna.

The Cryptocurrency Revolution is Already Underway

Markets unleash the creative complexity that make the dynamic testing of a wide range of liberatory strategies more meaningfully possible. This very same complexity makes…
Money’s Perimeters of Freedom
To attribute to money a concept of bestowing freedom upon an individual owner may well exist as a theoretical possibility. Yet ownership is itself a contested concept. As is freedom.
