Greetings dear readers! Today I present to your attention an article written by my good friend Max — in it he made a review of more than a year of my Twitter activity.

As you know I often post just interesting tools that I find on the web and they are not part of my articles because I try to include only my own content there. This is the first collection and review of the best stuff from my tweets!

I promise you’ll find interesting tools, research and other stuff there, including a review of what we think is the best research from Arxiv! I suggest you go through the whole list carefully — I’m sure you’ll find a couple of interesting links, whether you’re a developer, a regular user, a novice or an old-timer!

Enjoy reading! You will find even more interesting links in the original article, I did a double check and included only what I found most interesting!

I — Crypto
