"So NYU is a part of a new Student Currency Blockchain Thingy"


          

and they gave me 100 of them for free to start

I downloaded the Exchange app cryptocurrency wallet and have a whole "key phrase" etc...

I'm totally new to blockchain so this should be interesting..

Republic seems to be a pretty cool/progressive company. This is my first workshop from them and I think they're doing a part 2 as well

- Countdown timer at the top of the page.
- Sketchy public social proof crawler below. Why would someone want their investments to be public?
- A list of leading VC firms on the front page. But actually they have nothing to do with Republic.co
- A webinar which I'm sure will conveniently nudge you to invest using their product.
- I don't see any reason why blockchain is needed for this business model.

I dunno if this is a scam, but do your research before giving them any money.

Love,

I've been aware of cryptocurrency for most of the last decade.

some people have made a lot of money from it, some people have lost a lot of money from it.

I haven't seen anything from the industry that makes it something people really need to know about it or investigate it, because it doesn't really do anything yet, just like it didn't seven or eight years ago.

you don't have to take my word for it, this is one of the people I follow just because he's very active in that scene and is usually talking about whatever's going on. I don't agree with him on most things but I don't think he's a scammer which is tough to say in that circle.

Just one."

i feel you on all of that...i'm hella skeptical but I want to learn more. As of yet, I'm not spending any of my own money, but its gonna be interesting to see what these 100 "things" i've been given will do (or not do)...so i guess its sort of a case study for me
