How is Decentralized Finance making Wealth building more inclusive?

The emerging model of Decentralized Finance enabled by technology, driven by innovation with the immense need for inclusiveness for the less privileged is changing the investing landscape by bringing inclusiveness to the “less privileged”. The Fintech revolution has broken through the traditional barriers of entry into the wealth-building sphere. Traditionally, we in the Western economies, have had ample opportunities to grow & protect our wealth with access to sound knowledge, an abundance of banks, vibrant markets and availability of a wide variety of investment assets like stocks, options, bonds, mutual funds etc. But people…

Why does anyone even buy cryptocurrencies?

James “Jim” Holder the Third had a problem. The Texan used car dealer had inherited his father’s used car lot which his father had in turn inherited from his grandfather, the original James Holder. But while the Austin, Texas used car lot used to push out shiny Buicks and Cadillacs to moneyed oilmen, the well of buyers looking for gas-guzzling American cars had run dry, although, the pumps of Texas had not. But Holder, a burly, mustached former quarterback at Westlake High School was not about to throw in the…

What precipitated the recent Crypto market surge?

It was almost certain that with the recent sharp uptick in the market price of Cryptos there would be a lot of eyeballs rolling as to the cause of this surge. Fair enough, but a lot of people fail to realize is that every market has a mind of its own & sometimes you don’t need any reason or rationale behind such moves. Considering the fact that Cryptos have been under relentless selling pressure for more than a year, there was bound to some meaningful correction at some point. Apart from…

Why Blockchain Won’t Make Humans Obsolete and what it will do instead

Lawyers are annoying. I would know: I’m one of them. We are so annoying in fact that they are the subject of endless jokes, some of which are quite funny. But lawyers will not be replaced by blockchain technologies. Neither will accountants, bankers, or any other job role. Rather these job roles will be “disrupted” meaning that their current essential roles will change. An example might help… From computers to computers Until the 1950s, “computers” were largely assumed to be humans. That’s right: humans who computed data. Starting from advances made during World…

Tokenization of Energy: Crypto Mining, Proof of Work and the Reinvention of Energy Financial Markets

Blockchain-based innovations are as much about new technology as they are about new concepts of governance. In particular, the continued proliferation of Proof of Work (PoW) consensus has the potential to fundamentally change the structure and incentives of the energy markets. By translating physically trapped energy into global and digitally mobile value, the energy economics of production and distribution may change. One of the most common misconceptions about the Blockchain and Digital Assets space is that we’re witnessing “a technology-driven” revolution. While the technology paradigm of distributed ledgers (“DLTs”) certainly brings incremental…

Surviving Crypto Winter — Part Three: Why Privacy Coins Will Rule the Next Bull Run

Welcome to part three of the Surviving Crypto Winter series (check out part one and two), where I profile companies and projects that have a shot at surviving the winds of crypto winter and thriving when dreams of spring comes again. This time I profile the an entire category of projects: privacy coins. In twenty years cash will be illegal. The great movement to a cashless society already started years ago. The invention of the computer made it inevitable. And governments that can’t resist peering into every aspect of our lives will make it a reality.…
