2020 is done and dusted!

2020 is gone.

For most people, 2020 is a year they would rather forget. The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has made life extremely difficult, to say the least. 2020 requires little preamble.

However, the blockchain and cryptocurrencies industry has been on a roll lately. We closed the year with prices on the up they are still up and the adoption of distributed technology at its highest peak ever.

It is against this backdrop that we have to peak into the future and try to decode.

Just as natural resources shaped the Industrial Revolution, big data is the driving force in the digital revolution — which has changed the ways we perceive, share and interact with that data.

The influx of information moving to the cloud in recent years has forged new industries focused on compiling, analyzing, managing, securing and monetizing said data. The digitalization of consumer information has proven to hold immense value, so much so that the World Economic Forum (WEF) has classified data as a new asset class.

On the other hand — the world population is expected to rise to almost 10 billion by 2050. To feed this number of people, we need to increase food production while using fewer resources. …

Gold-backed cryptocurrencies have been rewarding investors with returns of both gold and digital assets minus the drawbacks of physically holding the precious metal.

This article is a followup to my recently published piece that explored the viability of stablecoins as a scalable alternative to general cryptocurrencies.

Uncertain waters

World over 2020 has started off with a bang. Right at the beginning of the year, we saw the escalation of tensions between Iran and the United States which led to rumours of an upcoming war; the United States impeachment trial sprang into full throttle; Brexit and now the Coronavirus pandemic.

2020 is as good as cancelled for most people.

Countries around the world are rolling out wartime-like emergency measures to fight COVID-19. The IMF has already said that the world is facing the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s. With millions of people losing jobs since this novel pandemic began, many are left wondering how the global economy recover? On top of that, economic experts concur that the global economy is likely to further contract by 3% this year as countries around the world shrink at the fastest pace in decades. …

As Bitcoin and other free-floating cryptocurrencies continue to exhibit extreme volatility relative to fiat currencies, there has been a much greater focus on Stablecoins designed to minimize these price fluctuations.

This article provides a complete guide on stablecoins and discusses key stability risks introduced by some designs.

What Are Stablecoins?

Moving away from the horrific market crash of 2018, the cryptocurrency industry seems to have found a new bet in Stablecoins. Ever since the social media giant Facebook’s unsuccessful attempt to launch one back in June of 2019, the hype has continued to exponentially grow.

Stablecoins are cryptocurrencies designed to minimize the volatility of the price of the coin, relative to some “stable” asset or basket of assets. A stablecoin can be pegged to a cryptocurrency, fiat money, or to exchange-traded commodities (such as precious metals like gold or industrial metals). …

The COVID-19 crisis has put unprecedented strain on the global supply chain of every product, but most acutely on critical medical supplies.

The Associated Press recently reported that the critical shortage of medical supplies across the U.S., including testing swabs, protective masks, surgical gowns and hand sanitizer, can be tied to a sudden drop in imports, mostly from China.

Trade data shows the decline in shipments started in mid-February after the spiraling Covid-19 outbreak in China led the country to shutter factories and disrupted ports. Some emergency rooms, hospitals and clinics in the U.S. have now run out of key medical supplies, while others are rationing personal protective equipment like gloves and masks.

The United States counts on receiving the vast majority of its medical supplies from China, where the coronavirus has infected more than 80,000 people and killed more than 3,200. When Chinese medical supply factories began coming back on line last month, their first priority was their own hospitals. …

Should we be this worried about COVID-19?

I am worried about Coronavirus

COVID-19 has received a lot of attention from the media, health and political world — and worse in the minds of the average person, it is very dangerous.

Yes, the world today has other much bigger concerns and to the most people, the growing global concerns about this Coronavirus seem to be blown out of proportion.

But are they?

When the news the outbreak of the Wuhan virus first reached me back in December 2019 I quickly dismissed it as the common flu, given the initial descriptions of its effects by the medical fraternity. …
