We need to talk about cryptocurrencies. Here are my ten greatest articles.

Cheers to the site I’m ghostwriting for. They gave me permission to share with you the best of my work.

After the jump, we’ll discuss: Binance, Coinbase, Kraken, Bittrex, and Coinmama. Which of these cryptocurrency exchanges is better for you? We’ll talk about Ripple and the XRP, about Lumen and its Stellar, and of course about the king and queen of the ball: Bitcoin and Ethereum. As a bonus we’ll feature the Verge coin, is it the new hot investment or an example of what not to do?

Get all of the answers and a lot more, after the jump:

WORK: “Is Privacy a Myth?”

Are you looking for explosive information that will ruin your life? Do you want to sleep even less? Are you interested in more worries and stress? Well, you’re in luck!

In my latest article for Superb’s blog, I dissected a piece by the New York Times investigative journalism team titled “Twelve Million Phones, One Dataset, Zero Privacy”. They analyzed the shady underbelly of the location data industry and commerce, and I analyzed them doing it. That’s the only funny bit I have about this, the rest is scarier than “Rosemary’s Baby”, and equally as truthful.

You’ve been warned.

Move ahead, if you dare.

WORK: “Magento 2 will make your web store exponentially better. This is why”

Infographic about the top industries using Magento. The article is about why you should migrate your store to Magento 2.

I almost didn’t publish this one here.

Long story short: It was heavily edited and I wasn’t satisfied with the published version.

I’m ok with it, don’t get me wrong. The client had the right to do so. And very good reasons that had nothing to do with me.

But, it doesn’t showcase my best writing. And professional photographers only show you their best pictures.

Then I thought, maybe I’m not particularly proud of the piece, but it does showcase other qualities. It shows that I’m a team player and I don’t take edits personally.

It is what it is, let’s work.

About the article, first things first: Magento is an Ecommerce software. It’s also a SaaS if you take that option.

Let’s start with the basics. The first Magento 2 version came out on November 17, 2015. The behemoth Adobe acquired the company in 2018. With its resources and expertise, the platform is expected to grow exponentially. According to Hosting Tribunal: “over 250,00 active sites use Magento”, but “only 11,000 of those run on Magento 2.”

Those old school stores should migrate. Learn why –> “Magento 2 will make your web store exponentially better. This is why
