The Sat Standard - December 7th, 2019

Thought of the week from Marty Bent:
It feels like this year’s holiday season is the calm before the storm. 2020 will be a crazy year on all fronts; election, bitcoin halvening, a new decade. Put your helmets on.

Thought of the week from Matt Odell:
PoS chains will naturally centralize validation among exchanges, ETFs, and other custodians - the easiest companies to regulate. Satoshi's major innovation was distributed PoW - not "blockchain" - yet half this industry still thinks PoW is the problem that needs to be corrected. They are horribly misguided.
