After years of discussion about the use cases that would drive blockchain adoption to the mainstream, it seems like in 2021, it’s finally happening. Seemingly even more popular than the price of Bitcoin or DeFi, NFTs have been making headlines around the world.

This trend is hardly surprising. Christie’s sale of Beeple’s NFT art collection was the first time the auction house had offered a purely digital piece, and it fetched a cool $69 million. Many artists, musicians etc have jumped on the bandwagon to create their own NFTs.

***Guest Post***

Back when Bitcoin first appeared a decade ago, many people touted cryptocurrencies as the future. Some analysts predicted that this kind of digital currency would spell the end of traditional/fiat money in a couple of years’ time. Obviously — this has not happened yet, and with the current blockchain climate, it doesn’t appear as likely.

While the coronavirus, Kobe Bryant, the US presidential election and giving back to the community dominated 2020 Google search trends, I am 100% positive that Bitcoin will definitely dominate 2021 search trends.

One of the trends that should gain a lot of steam this year is “earning Bitcoin.” It is common knowledge that an individual can obtain Bitcoin by either purchasing it or earning it.

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.

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…

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.
