Welcome to a special edition of Conviction, the first in a six-part series that had everything to do with genius forward planning around Bitcoin 2022 in Miami and an educated guess Peter Thiel would launch a tirade of off-colour remarks to bring you a timely, full roster of expert contributors who we’ve definitely known for years, not days.

Here’s what you can expect after the jump: a rundown of what’s happened in the news, Conviction’s view of why it matters and, more importantly, views from actual experts. A full list of contributors in this piece and the series to follow is below to pique your interest.

Subscribe for free to see all the insights we’ve gathered for you crypto fans, cynics and collective friends of the earth. But, first, a PSA.

For the avoidance of doubt, we’re interested in more than crypto and blockchain. This series simply fits in the bigger picture, early-stage impact investors and tech startups working toward Sustainable Development Goals.
