    July 6th, 2017 by Legendface66
    Xander Dunn and Richard Craib discuss Numerai, a new kind of hedge fund built by a network of data scientists.

    The Ether Review #11: Free My Vunk!

    January 8th, 2016 by Legendface66

On the surface, this seems like a simple, maybe even mundane use case, but the significance a gamer may attach to a specific achievement can be a real source of economic value. We see this in phenomena like World of Warcraft gold mining and character sale. Read More
