I write in the Guardian how, one day, Bitcoin will become big oil, and all who dabble in it will be reborn as enemies of the environmental movement, seen as plunderers of the planet and the bad guys in the fight against climate change – just like oil.
I write in the Washington Post about how China is using a death sentence to manipulate Canada. There is a method to China’s madness. Like many of its moves, the death sentence was coldly calculated. It was born not out of ignorance for Canada’s rule of law, but with an aim to exploit it.
I write in the South China Morning Post that China’s bike-sharing sector has been hard hit by low profit margins and a high rate of bicycle theft. Companies would benefit from using a blockchain platform that frees them from the responsibility of mediating in cases of dispute
I write in the Toronto Star that Facebook Inc’s development of its own cryptocurrency has the potential to jump-start adoption of digital tokens, such as Bitcoin, but it also hints at a dark, dystopian future.
I write in the Times Colonist that B.C. Hydro’s recently expressed friendliness to power-hungry cryptocurrency miners could bode well for the province. But courting this new industry is a fine art that the utility should start learning, if it wants to have any chance of success.
I write in Maclean’s how China’s detentions of Canadians are theatre for a domestic audience — and they will not be the last.
In Maisonneuve, I write about how studying the bitter lessons of past judicial pipeline rejections wasn’t enough to save the Trudeau Liberals from the same fate. The Canadian court decision halting the Trans Mountain expansion project came despite the government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s earnest efforts.
In Maisonneuve, I take readers deep behind the scenes in the Trans Mountain pipeline fight, a conflict over a major Canadian oil export route that has great political implications.
I write in The Walrus about how I quit my day job to become a Bitcoin miner.
I reveal in Maclean’s how Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau issued a “clearly out of step” statement sidelining Sri Lanka’s majority ethnic group.
