        I think dancing on stage is exactly what you need to do my friend!

    are you empowering people to be “free to choose”? are you establishing clear property rights and lowering transaction costs so people can bargain efficiently?I disagree with the premise of a “stable coin” that takes volatility away from the market. The only way to do that is futures and options.

      I am not a big fan of algorithmic stablecoin implementations as we see them today. They are injecting more risk into the system than they are taking away in the short term. It’s like kicking the can further down the road, while waiting for a black swan disaster.

    William you have done a great job. What do you think of Googles plans for downtown Toronto under Garnier Expressway. I do need to come down a floor and visit if you still are on Richmond Street.

      Agree. Most people (me included) could never stand on stage and talk for 30 minutes w/o notes about anything.I think (and I have said this before) William comes across great on stage and the presentation is exactly as it should be in both tone and seriousness.

      That’s great. it would be the continuation of the waterfront rejuvenation projects that have been on-going for the last few years. As you well know, Toronto’s Lake waterfront has been neglected, but slowly being renovated. OneEleven has moved to Front St. West a bit further south. I’m not there too often, but ping me when you know your dates.

    Good presentation William.

    Excellent talk William! I think your presentation should be the prologue to anyone starting to work in this field and an interlude for the ones currently working.

    09:05 true about rewards, and the appreciation of Attention of users, bet let’s do not missed reciprocity to attention and actually interaction of attention. All this things that I put together on my project that needs support!
