Block Journal:
The Block Journal team is composed of analysts, traders and designers deeply rooted in the blockchain industry. We hope to shed some light on what’s going on around the world of blockchain by playing our role in the path towards mass adoption.
They aim to provide news, commentary and information on the blockchain space in an easily understandable manner. The guys at Block Journal believe decentralization, blockchain and cryptocurrencies are only in its infancy and mass adoption is in its near future.
This interview was entirely, 100% FREE for the People! In every way, there were no tokens, no under the table deals. I complete transparency I have done a few (about three) paid tweet-promotions in the past year, which I always disclose with an #ad sign). I believe that sponsored content is not a problem if disclosed openly to the community. This is not Financial Advice. Please #DYOR
