This must be the place.

The API Economy is a place that aims to bridge the gap between deep technical understanding of abstract concepts and turn them into explanations we all can digest (without being watered down). From APIs, to crypto, to new & exciting startup ideas, The API Economy takes the complex and try to distill it down to a high-level breakdown anyone can learn from.

Who are you?

I, Peter Schroeder, am a lifelong technologist & innovation enthusiest. Ever since a young age, I just wanted to understand how things work. This curiosity has led me down a road of physically and metaphorically taking things apart and putting them back together, which is the aim of The API Economy.

The road that led me here includes starting a company in college, watching that company fail, work across high-growth SaaS companies for 10 years, and more recently work to grow USDC (the 4th largest cryptocurrency) at one of the most exciting companies in the world.

Why you should (or shouldn’t) read?

If you want consistency, this newsletter is not for you. The aim of this newsletter is not to send out arbitrary newsletters like your other regularly scheduled programs.

This is a newsletter that aims to explore the most interesting things happening in the world of tech. When seismic shifts happen across companies & industries, this newsletter gives me the latitude to move in the direction that matter most.

Fun to read!

So, how often do we publish?

Monthly-ish. Life is hard, good writing is harder. But hopefully, it’s all worth it. Newsletters will be published when they are interesting through and through, and not a moment sooner.
