It is not surprising that cryptocurrencies have become worthy digital assets. It is surprising for some that eventually some countries have now come to welcome their existence, despite the initial resistance. While we focus on cryptocurrency adoption as we can see 2021 clearly highlights so many digital coins, this is just the beginning.

Just recently, we learned that the tech giant Microsoft is considering using Bitcoin as a payment option. Mastercard will accept crypto payments in the future. …


In today’s globalised world, diversity and inclusion can’t be stressed enough in order to achieve a successful and sustainable business. Diversity and inclusion incorporate the company’s mission, efforts, and practices to support a diverse workplace and leverage the effects of diversity to achieve a competitive business advantage.

Online gaming is one of the most touted blockchain use cases. The ability for players to wholly own in-game items — thanks to the creation of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) — is an innovation that did not exist previously. They’re so revolutionary that we will cover NFTs in a future article. …

It’s easy to forget their names, due to the sheer number of these tokens, but it’s impossible to forget the name of Dogecoin. This dog-inspired coin has became a trending topic, not only for crypto enthusiasts, but also people around the world.

Introduced on December 2013, Dogecoin initially was made as a joke. The founders, IBM software engineer Billy Markus and Adobe software engineer Jackson Palmer, wanted to create a peer-to-peer digital currency which is fun, instant, and free from banking fees. …


Ever consider buying a cup of coffee with Bitcoin? The answer is probably no, since Bitcoin’s price itself is highly volatile (and it’s getting more and more unpredictable recently).

According to a World Bank study, there are 1.7 billion unbanked/underbanked adults globally, yet two-thirds of them own a mobile phone that could help them access financial services.

More than 200 million unbanked/underbanked adults who work in the private sector are paid in cash only. More than 50% of those reside in Asia.

Those who checked Bitcoin’s (BTC) price over 8th-9th February (~+20%) might have experienced a confluent state of excitement and confusion. The collective intensity of the sound waves emanating from the shouts of joy of Bitcoin ‘HODLers’ all over the world may well have triggered seismic movements.

The BTC market was relatively stagnant over the preceding week, while the meme-coin DOGE took the spotlight headlines. Then, suddenly, as soon as technology leader Elon Musk’s impulsive finger tapped ‘post’ on Twitter, the price of BTC exploded and reached All Time High (ATH) at over $48,000.

While Musk had been hyping various cryptocurrencies…
