After taking to Amit Rathore about Presscoin, it was interesting to hear more about it from investigative journalist and author Nafeez Ahmed whose Insure Intelligence is well-known to Medium and other readers. Dr. Ahmed has written 6 books about the political state of the world and is a former columnist at The Guardian.
