We’re back from the holiday break with a bumper episode where we not only share our thoughts on 2018 trends, but also make our predictions for the coming year. In our 2018 review, we cover trends like the rise of enterprise blockchain, the fall of ICOs, virtual reality, the loss of individual privacy, open source improvements, the launch of alternative blockchain platforms and much more.

We then pull out our crystal ball and discuss our picks for long shots, sure bets, emergent technologies, blockchain and some more general predictions. As usual, we also dig into several intriguing news items and begin our new ‘What We’ve Been Reading’ segment.
