This Too Shall Pass

Robert Koenig cracks down on how to receive free money by simply participating in the cryptocurrency industry, as last week Uniswap distributed 400 UNI tokens to everybody that used their exchange, regardless of the size of the transaction. In addition they distributed UNI tokens to everybody that provided liquidity on their exchange. That is free money for just supporting a project. Robert also explains how etherscan works and what information you can gain from that website.
