About this site

I try to make sense of blockchain enabled businesses and their strategies. Weekly articles are free, while other posts are for subscribers only.

The blockchain space started with people searching for greater fools. This site is my attempt to bring together people who want to become less foolish.


Less Foolish is written by me, Naveen Mishra. I am building useful things in the blockchain space, usually under the N10A umbrella.

Ethics Statement

My goal is to be a truly independent analyst, a commitment that is about more than just not having an employer. To wit:

  • I am not paid by any company/project/DAO for any opinion I post on Less Foolish or in any public forum, including podcasts and Twitter.
  • I hold de-minimis amounts of tokens of the projects I analyze. This lets me actually use the thing before I talk about it.
  • None of us is without bias. My natural skeptical nature leads me to be overly negative about tokens ( colloquially called "Shitcoins" ) I will try to rise above my petty hate for financialization games and try to understand each project with an open mind.

I take my personal integrity and the integrity of this site very seriously. While I will make, and have made mistakes, I will always strive to correct them quickly and publicly, and take active steps to ensure I don’t make similar mistakes in the future. On the flip side, I do not tolerate accusations of speaking or writing at the behest of any company/project/DAO.

If you have any concerns or questions about this ethics policy please contact me.
