WARNING: list may include or even likely includes scams and quasi-scams. Do your own research and due diligence before putting value at risk. Read disclaimer below.
[I aim for a relatively comprehensive list of Ethereum sales, but make no warranty as to even whether they are legit; as such, I thus likewise warrant nothing about whether any will produce a satisfactory return. I have passed the CFA exams, but this is not investment advice.]
This newsletter likely would have died but for ConsenSys
I’m thankful that ConsenSys has given me time to slog through the news and bring you the important parts.
Editorial control is 100% me. Blame me first and last.
Help me get to 5000 subscribers in 2017?
I need just 30 subscribers per day for the rest of the year to make it to 5000. That’d be brilliant.

This newsletter is supported by ConsenSys (surely you have seen that we’re hiring?) and Status.im. Many thanks to both.
