Fundamentals and Deep Dives

Blockchain isn’t a field where a macro-view on token-economics will give you enough of an edge to make your next bet. Going deep and truly understanding the fundamentals is a must: but it’s hard to know where to start. ZK is that calling. They will take you deep into these nuanced systems and their show notes are an excellent way to continue your exploration.
