    The Minke App - Wave hello to better savings

    Josh Reyes is the co-founder of the Minke, a DeFi platform that aims to be the easiest way to use DeFi via an app designed for mobile. Minke offers savings rates 40x higher than big banks.

    Marc Andreessen coined the famous phrase “Software is eating the world" predicting that large swathes of the economy will be taken over by software and technology. That’s not a 10x improvement, it’s a 38x one. Warren Buffet says compounding interest is the 8th wonder of the world. Minke see these trends as the power behind DeFi’s growth.

    Near Futures Far-Fetched - A Sci-Fi Story

The themes explored range from The Last Bitcoin (set in the year 2139), to the social network of objects, a terrorist group infiltrating CERN, our too-smart cities becoming dumb, weaponizing ‘clean’, and first contact with intelligent non-human life.
    Near Futures Far-Fetched is a continuation of the creative partnership between CENNZnet and Andy Blood that produced last September’s world first ‘Book As NFT’ project.
    Each individual story NFT is available in an edition of ten. With each sale granting its owner a 1% share of the revenue of the full and final collection released as an NFT.
    Andy Blood is the author of ‘Full Bleed’ a book of ‘Remarkable stories and hard-won lessons from the coalface of creativity and the bleeding edge of advertising and technology.’
