Why Millennials Would Rather Buy Crypto Than Stocks

[Tue 04:03] Stocks have not only lost their luster with Millennials, who are expected to be the driving investment force in the next decade, but they are also facing competition in the form of cryptocurrencies. For millennials born January 1980, the stock market yields factoring in dividends produced flat returns for the 12-year period from age 18 to 30. 25 percent of affluent millennials reportedly are using or holding cryptocurrency and 31 percent are interested in using cryptocurrency. A 2019 survey from Bankrate indicated that 9% of millennials selected cryptocurrency as the preferred long-term investment, further confirming demand for virtual currencies is growing among the millennial demographic.  Top ^   More >   Google the news >>

Radix Engine: An Asset-Oriented Smart Contract Alternative

[Mon 23:03] As we discussed in a previous post, Radix is made of two layers: the Radix Engine and the Radix Ledger. The native language of development on top of the Radix Engine , and development on Radix starts not with smart contract code, but with defining the assets of the desired transactional system - in short, clearly defining the business need. These building-block style components are packaged into the Radix Engine Library that runs within the Radix Engine on Radix network nodes. Defining, issuing, managing, and transacting Radix Engine assets are all provided through the Radix API. Radix libraries in commonly-used languages like Java and Javascript make it as easy as possible to use the Radix API. No smart contract code is required.  Top ^   More >   Google the news >>

Three simple steps to becoming a successful ecosystem player

[Mon 23:03] Digital business ecosystems, networks of organisations that provide integrated services to consumers in a way they could not have done on their own, provide a win-win scenario for customer and business alike. There are many examples of companies building and participating in expanding business ecosystems. 3*. Considering the disruption ecosystems are generating, and the seemingly unlimited business value they are unlocking, ecosystem engagement should be on every organisation's agenda. Building out, investing in or joining greater ecosystems allows you to capitalise on the offerings that other organisations provide, and this combination of products and services - that could never be achieved by one company alone - becomes a welcome differentiator.  Top ^   More >   Google the news >>

Alleged Blockchain Funds Announced at 2018 Blockland Conference Never Materialized

[Mon 20:03] At last year's inaugural Blockland Solutions Conference in Cleveland, local leaders in the economic development and high-tech startup space announced significant forthcoming investments for area blockchain companies. FlashStarts, the local startup accelerator and micro venture capital firm which announced last week that it would pivot into corporate consulting, announced at the 2018 conference that it would create a $6 million pot to provide seed funding for blockchain startups. In addition to FlashStarts, the local accelerator JumpStart announced that it would devote serious resources to blockchain. The Blockland project manager hired in the fall of 2018 is no longer with JumpStart; a joint "Digital futures" think tank at Cleveland State and Case still has the same level of funding and physical plans that it did when it was first announced; and no one seems willing to hazard a guess about the current number of blockchain coders working in the region.  Top ^   More >   Google the news >>

South Korea: Gov’t Seeks to Tax Crypto Transactions as Capital Gains

[Mon 12:03] The South Korean government plans to tax capital gains on cryptocurrency transactions. While the government's capital gains bill will reportedly go ahead regardless of related legislation, The Korea Times notes that a more adequate definition of cryptocurrencies and digital assets will be required to provide clarity for the government's interventions. Among the matters to be clarified is the question of whether crypto-related gains are to be deemed similar to gains in stock trading or real estate transactions. As Cointelegraph reported, South Korea's proposed Act on Reporting and Use of Certain Financial Transaction Information will, if passed, stipulate that banks must issue real-name accounts to crypto exchanges.  Top ^   More >   Google the news >>

When Will Blockchain Technology Be a Game-Changer?

[Sun 12:03] This article from The Motley Fool describes the many benefits of blockchain technology and the companies who have blockchain patents. "Although there has been some experimentation with blockchain at the local level, the experts agree that the significant amount of challenges around implementation are preventing the technology from gaining traction in local government. 'Perhaps the largest challenge with blockchain is the data itself,' said Truell. 'Local governments still have structured data that will have to be moved into a digital platform before blockchain could be used.' Truell also emphasizes that major changes to the law would be needed to make blockchain a viable option." Despite the enormous amount of research into uses for blockchain technology and the large number of pilot projects using blockchain technology, many questions still remain. If not, we will certainly see tremendous progress, and some organization will release a true game-changing app based on blockchain technology in the early 20s. What is your view? Please share your thoughts on blockchain and this article on LinkedIn in our online discussion.  Top ^   More >   Google the news >>

Business Direction Events UK holds successful seminar on recognising Cyprus as an investment destination

[Sun 01:03] "In this respect, we are promoting a number of various reforms, aiming to further improve the business and investment environment, including a tax incentives package for investment to innovative companies, a new law to fast-track licensing procedures for large investments, reforming of the judiciary system, implementing a National Strategy for blockchain technology, as well as significant reforms in the public sector, the welfare system and the health care system. "Furthermore, new and substantial investments have been materialized in the fields of banking, energy, shipping, telecommunications, retail, real estate and tourism, new sea ports, marinas and the largest integrated casino resort in Europe. In addition, over the last few years we have seen an increasing number of shipping management companies establishing a base in our country or expanding their existing operations."Besides the aforementioned sectors," Mrs Anastassiadou added, "there are significant investment opportunities in Renewable Energy Sources, technology, education, research and innovation, while a series of tax incentives are also provided for the growing start-up industry. "The commercialisation of the Limassol port in 2016 is one example, through which Cyprus' biggest deep-sea port is being developed into one of the most modern and efficient ports in the region. A negotiation process is in progress for Cyprus' second largest port, located in Larnaca, the commercialisation of which is expected to give a further boost to the tourism industry, an already booming sector of the economy."The industrial port at Vasilikos will be expanded to facilitate the support of the companies engaged with offshore exploration. The panels of experts gave their expert views and discussed the advantages and disadvantages in a variety of areas including the Cyprus investment programme, banking and tax benefits, the real return on investment in the construction and real estate sector and the final panel discussed the potential of doing business in Cyprus as a strategic investment choice.  Top ^   More >   Google the news >>

UAE at the forefront of blockchain adoption

[Sat 18:03] Marwan Al Zarouni, CEO of Dubai Blockchain Centre and member of the Dubai Future Council for Blockchain Technology, said: "The adoption of blockchain is so far very impressive we currently have 40 projects in the pipeline in different sectors from both the government and private sectors. The new projects are piloted in new areas using artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things." Tobias Young, head of product development and strategy, at the Dubai Gold and Commodities Exchange, said: "In 2020 I think we are going to see greater adoption of blockchain technology within the UAE, leading to a stronger and ever more inclusive ecosystem. We are already seeing a number of blockchain companies set up in the UAE and this is likely to continue to grow as regulatory frameworks in both the blockchain infrastructure and digital asset sectors become more established." Mark Balovnev, partner at Accelliance, said: "Since being invited to the UAE in 2017 we have worked on a number of implementations for public and private organisations and have gone live with several, particularly in the education sector. This year we published a report with the Smart Dubai Office on how to navigate blockchain implementation with a detailed analysis of common challenges and learnings from projects with recommendations for successful implementation. As part of our ongoing work we have surveyed over 100 stakeholders from over 60 organisations exploring blockchain in the UAE and have positive visibility over ongoing initiatives in the country." "The UAE can be a prime example to other nations that want to leverage blockchain to achieve economic success. There is no doubt that the UAE is at the forefront of blockchain adoption. Dubai has a very active business technology ecosystem in that the country is already probing the purpose and significance of blockchain and every emerging technology in the market," said Mohammed Saleem, founder and CEO of Trescon, which hosted its flagship event World Blockchain Summit in the UAE. "The UAE is turning out to be a popular destination for blockchain as the government has already set a target or an index to bring 100 per cent of government transactions on to the blockchain by 2020," added Saleem.  Top ^   More >   Google the news >>

Buy a Monet instead of a Treasury? Art has shown long-term returns that rival bonds

[Sat 13:03] Impressionist art averaged 5.0%, while the art market as a whole returned 5.3% annually. Art can be a wildly volatile market - among other things it's subject to the whim of consumer tastes - but Citi said that it's becoming an increasingly popular way for investors to diversify their portfolio since art's return isn't correlated with any other major asset class. Contemporary art has been the top performer, returning an average of 7.4% annually, while art from the Impressionist period has returned 5%. The return on art most closely matches that of fixed income. After crunching the numbers from 13,000 works of art sold since July of 2016, the firm found a few key takeaways, including that holding art for longer typically lowers the risk of future returns, and that higher returns are typically given to more liquid artists.  Top ^   More >   Google the news >>

HSBC’s plan to move $20bn in assets to blockchain could be a watershed moment

[Fri 15:03] Investment bank HSBC Holdings is using a blockchain distributed ledger technology to digitise transaction records of private investments, enabling clients globally to access the details of their assets online in near real-time. Even as HSBC and other financial firms are increasing their use of blockchain, Boston-based State Street Bank reportedly slashed more than 100 blockchain-related developer positions in a move away from the technology. State Street is by no means abandoning blockchain, but it is curtailing in-house development of the technology based on the Hyperledger open source platform. To create its own blockchain digital ledger, HSBC must have done a lot of "Heavy lifting," given the technology and its supporting middleware components that connect to legacy systems, are still "Relatively immature," Litan said.  Top ^   More >   Google the news >>

How technology drives sales in property sector

[Thu 19:03] Imagine how much time real estate brokers can save, and how much more productive they become, if for instance, they invite prospects to their offices and take them on a virtual journey. "Most developers or real estate firms do have one mockup for one of the typical units in a project. The role of a mockup is to give that real insight of how the unit will look like after it is completed. To increase their chances in converting sales, showcasing one out of several products, might limit the impact of the experience. Having all the relevant units and key areas will boost the chances of getting more business. For any developer, it is not only a game changer in terms of sales tools but improves substantially the overall customer experience," added Fedin. Vivek Agarwal, co-founder and CTO of Square Yards, said: "Despite being the world's largest and most valuable asset class, the real estate sector has been a late adopter of technology. New technologies in real estate faced many headwinds as incumbents were slow to embrace them. Introducing technological change or adopting a new software into an organisation presents a different set of challenges." "A real estate software is a useful tool and a great way to manage lead generation or management, listings, appointments. notices, open houses etc. As technology develops, new features and more innovative ideas are added. Virtual staging, AI and chatbots are some of these. AI is changing how we do business and certainly will influence the real estate software market. There are companies that use AI to streamline processes for both tenants and landlords," he added.  Top ^   More >   Google the news >>

Words on Tokenization, @GbtTechnologies

[Wed 19:03] What is a Token: A token is a tradable digital representation of an asset on top of a blockchain. If a tokenized piece of art is worth 200,000 tokens, and the opportunity to invest is open, you may have the opportunity to buy as many tokens as you like/can; securing your FIAT money, gold, silver or even stock using them as currency to purchase those tokens. Tokens can be saved for future use with the company, and if the future use is good, such as an effective promotion or long-standing discount, the customer rewards are preserved and sustainable. A token rewards customers by justifying the faith the buyer has placed in your product in buying the token-so reward them well, with a token that is creative, engaging and generous.  Top ^   More >   Google the news >>

Java and JavaScript dominated software development in the 2010s

[Wed 17:03] Developers favored a few other languages briefly during the 2010s, including Ruby, Swift, and PHP. Java and JavaScript had the biggest impact. JavaScript 70%.HTML/CSS 63%.SQL 57%.Python 39%.Java 39%. The same five languages ruled the top four spots from 2013 to 2017: Javascript, SQL, Java, and C#. In 2018, HTML and CSS pushed out C# and Python. The company's VP of Engineering Zach van Schouwen said that Java and Python are the most popular languages for candidates in technical interviews, in part because these languages are most frequently taught in university computer science classes. Alexandre Rebert, co-founder and developer at ForAllSecure, a cybersecurity company, said that an important development in the last decade has been an even stronger focus on security and a push to replace memory unsafe languages like C and C++. "This explains, in part, the rise of memory safe languages, like Python, Java, C# or the rise of Go in infrastructure tooling," he said.  Top ^   More >   Google the news >>

Under Pressure From All Sides, Law Firms Are Responding by Scaling Up

[Wed 11:03] "It's not only about specialization. It's also about global footprint and technology and other drivers that are changing the industry. Larger law firms and middle-market law firms around the country are going to have to change in the next few years in order to respond to those market forces." As companies consolidate, they're looking to reduce the roster of law firms they go to for legal help, driving firms to scale up by expanding head count, particularly in the form of lawyers who can offer the types of specialized services that companies themselves cannot handle in-house. Managing partners at both firms say they're growing in response to clients that want a small list of firms on demand, rather than partnerships with multiple law firms in multiple regions. Dentons Global CEO Elliott Portnoy has been warning law firms for almost a year now not to fall for the "Myth of legal exceptionalism"-that the work law firms do is so specialized that the Big Four could never compete.  Top ^   More >   Google the news >>

Why 2020 Will Be The Year of the Blockchain

[Wed 10:03] Several years ago, blockchain was deemed to be the biggest technology since the invention of the Internet, and the real estate market in particular stands to see the most benefits; however, adoption has been slow in the industry. "Blockchain has not better use than the digitalization of real estate. It always comes back to the real estate, and real estate will be the biggest part of the blockchain. It is going to remove a lot of outdated processes and a lot of the third-party intermediaries because of how secure the blockchain is," Jimmy Bingham, SVP at Prime Trust and a certified blockchain professional, tells GlobeSt.com. For investors interested in adopting blockchain technology, education is integral. "Everyone is seeing blockchain as something that will be bigger that the Internet, but you still need to do your due diligence. It is going to be buyer-beware, and people have to educate themselves. They can't just jump in blindly."  Top ^   More >   Google the news >>

Talent shortage hampering digital transformation moves of firms, say experts

[Tue 11:03] "Probably 80 percent of Chinese enterprises are adopting the digital transformation concepts, while only 16 percent of the companies will finally succeed in the digital transformation process," said Nancy Wang, head of talent solutions of LinkedIn China. "We found there are very few companies lacking strategies to hire more digital talent. The main reason is that companies cannot attract enough digital talents in the market. All firms are competing for the same small pool of leading talents, such as data scientists and algorithm engineers," Wang said. Today, digital technology impacts not only the IT sector, but a wider range of sectors, creating a huge demand for digital skills. "But now there is a huge demand for them in the job market. Both digital companies and traditional companies are actively embracing the digital transformation, and they are looking for similar digital talents in the job market."  Top ^   More >   Google the news >>

Where is future of innovation headed?

"The potential for data capture with new technologies is actually moving far faster than regulations can. Either you have to understand technology, or you have to be in a position where you can create an organisation that can understand technology for you and adapt to that." Such statistics clearly support predictions that technology will be heavily embedded in businesses in the near future. "Digital optimisation is where you, as a businessperson, are using technology to improve your existing business model, improve performance, reduce costs and improve customer service. Digital transformation on the other hand, is where you're using technology to drive new business models and new revenue streams," Goad explained.  Top ^   More >   Google the news >>

How Automation in Real Estate Became A $100 Billion Opportunity. Who Will Be Disrupted?

[Mon 23:03] We do not know how drastically technology will shrink the roles of traditional real estate market participants in favor of automation or change their roles. For high-value assets such as real estate, if the exchange could happen automatically, there is no need for trust layers, and then real estate could become a part of the e-commerce marketplace. In a TechCrunch survey, Connie Chan from Andreessen Horowitz expanded on the current real estate tech market and the lack of technology to support the real estate process by questioning, "Yes, we turn to Zillow or Redfin when searching for a home to buy or rent, but what about everything that happens before and after that?" Additionally, Brendan Wallace from Fifth Wall stated, "I would characterize the last five years as being an 'Age of Enlightenment' for major real estate owners, operators, and developers." Indeed, recent investments such as those from Sequoia Capital and Founders Fund for Snapdocs, as well as those from NFX and 500 Startups for Modus, prove that the 'Age of Enlightenment' is here. What is certain is that the real estate industry is becoming more technology-intensive rather than labor-intensive, opening up a $100 billion opportunity for innovators.  Top ^   More >   Google the news >>

Tapping into the traceability and immutability of blockchain will enable accurate, trusted provider data management.
