'Sup dorks, it's Taylor. I'm the CEO of Hedgehog, the place where you can manage your crypto portfolio all in one spot by syncing your various different exchanges and wallets. Currently Hedgehog supports 170+ exchanges!

Every week I ask a giveaway question and one lucky winner receives a Ledger Nano S hardware wallet. Last week I wanted to know your favorite sandwiches, and I learned that the secret to y'all's hearts is muffalettas and Reubens. Understandable 🤤 Reading your answers made me very hungry, by the way. Time to invest in ketchup coins and deli DAOs I guess.

If you want a chance to win a Ledger Nano S hardware wallet, don't forget the giveaway question at the end of the newsletter!

During the interview, Cook addressed a variety of his usual talking points, including being bullish on the future of AR. One of the more interesting parts of the conve…

Tldr: Wait. Apple doesn't like Fortnite, but mass adoption is based on Fortnite skins... did I just write myself into a corner? Shit.


"The Worm Wriggles Through Times Square Dispensing NFT Blessings (and Tokens)" is an incredibly blessed headline describing an equally blessed story. All hail The Worm!

On a completely different emotional note, "The Promise and Paradox of Decentralization" is a good read on the limits of utopia.

Tldr: The spice must flow, Soylent is people, etc.

Today I come to you, hat in hand, asking: Does pineapple belong on pizza, or do we team up against pickles?

Better yet, tell me about your favorite off-the-wall pizza concoction. Hedgehog's co-founder and CTO has shed many a tear pondering this answer:

Just reply to this email with your answer, and you'll be entered into the Ledger Nano S giveaway!

That's all! Keepin' it short and sweet today so I can get back to work 😎
