“This is the story of how one of the most powerful people in Silicon Valley — who had built-in protections and seemed untouchable — made a series of decisions that cost him his job and ravaged his reputation all within six months.

It's also a look inside an epic boardroom battle that broke Silicon Valley's sacred rules, with investors usurping power from the board to overthrow a visionary and revered, if problematic, founder.

And it's a tale of how backstabbing, greed, mistrust, and a crisis of conscience overwhelmed insiders at the world's most valuable tech startup, with friends and colleagues turning into enemies, all using their wits to move and countermove against one another.”

Masters thinks that bankers are dismissive of cryptocurrencies because of the threat they pose to traditional banking. The crypto community is built on the principles of decentralization, displacing middlemen, and doing away with legacy systems.

“It is abundantly clear that we are in the midst of a true financial revolution. It is no longer acceptable to dismiss it".

“the immense amount of routine medical data that physicians collect can only yield medical advances if the information is shared and studied. “We need to engage people so that they show us their data,” he says. “So we need to think in medicine about the technologies that let us have good data governance, and blockchain happens to be one of them right now.””

“The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that it has approved a “breakthrough device” that has the potential to match cancer patients with individualized treatment regiments with just one test. This could allow doctors and patients to choose treatments that are most likely to be effective for specific types of cancer — and to make those decisions sooner.”
