Christopher David never actually resigned from anything pertaining to Arcade City. The mayor title was just that a title and it turns out that he has no intention of leaving the Arcade City brand.

Charlie Shrem has a new project that involves a waste management company. The company isn’t yet mentioned publically but it is reported to be a 20 year old company that has moved 6 million gallons of waste last year. Naturally this is part of an Ethereum-based token sale. The tokens are for the Mainstreet Investment LP or MLP and they cover more than just trash. The fund includes investments in manufacturing, healthcare, media and more.
Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong published a blog post that signals his lack of enthusiasm about the future of bitcoin. He states that bitcoin “has not become a scaleable payment network”, mentioning fees and transaction times. The blog post ends with the idea that Ethereum may overtake bitcoin as a payment processor as well as its current role as a token generator.
We discuss these stories and add in our own thoughts about the past year in economics and crypto.
