Kiwi News Recap #41: 25/03-01/04

gm before we start a short info:

We partnered with Rhino Review, a newsletter focused exclusively on ETH staking, supported by the EthStaker community & Ethereum Foundation.

From now on all new episodes of Rhino will be automatically added to the Kiwi /New feed via Feedbot. We will also give 10 free Kiwipasses to the Rhino community, so if we have some staking-related links on Kiwi, we can expect insightful comments

If you’d like to read Rhino Review journal, you can find it at

And below you can find the top Kiwi picks from last week (plus this Monday since we took a day off for Easter). As last week we had many memecoin-related essays, we put them all in a separate category.
