In Global Movements for Women’s Rights, Technological Literacy is Key

cfrvg.jpg

Women’s fight for equality has been a hard and difficult road, and not always straightforward. The suffragette movement in the west began over 100 years ago, but women all over the world are still fighting, in some measure, for equality, for equity, or for equal representation. In the past several years a global movement seems to have coalesced and its pace accelerated, especially with impetus from the #MeToo tag, allowing women to share their stories, connect, and form international communities in unprecedented ways, all thanks to the internet.

Technology, specifically new methods of communication, have completely changed both the global conversation itself and the way that conversation is held in every corner of civilization. More than ever, women are using the interconnectedness of technology to network with each other and build strength through community in order to protect each other and shed light on their struggle – but unequal access to or knowledge of technology still leaves the door open for the possibility to create new victims, rather than empower existing ones.

On the surface, progress looks good, if occasionally halting. Powerful men are losing status and livelihood because of evil acts they’ve committed, some ongoing for years or even decades.  People are organizing and demonstrating and making positive change happen, single steps at a time. Those with more sophisticated pop-culture memories may remember an infamous email circulated by a Google employee in 2017 that assaulted the company’s increasing “PC” culture and made many demonstrably false claims about how women function in the workplace, and what they deserve to be compensated with in return. Google fired the employee, and women responded with wry fatigue, a total lack of surprise.

Fast forward to the following year – the end of 2018 saw a massive walkout of tens of thousands of google employees all over the world to protest sexual harassment policy and the “golden parachute” severance package given to a former executive accused of sexual harassment himself. The environment may not have changed much, but the attitudes have – women are taking control. The effects are seen even more drastically in developing countries, where women increasingly have less to lose by speaking up and more to lose by remaining silent. In Sudan, women have transformed facebook groups for local gossip into a massive protest network as part of a much larger protest effort against the government. The current regime is accused of humanitarian abuses, attacking and killing protestors, and the like. Beforehand, networks of women-only Facebook groups existed for women to chat and gossip about daily life, but as the national protest movement has grown, women have appropriated these groups to share personal information and photographs of individual police and government agents who have perpetrated crimes against civilians, using the information to harass and otherwise retaliate against them.

This tactic of singling out offenders, individualizing and removing their mob identity, has been an incredibly successful tool in a more general sense for a nascent movement focused on accountability for offenders and justice for their victims. There is, however, another secret: Facebook has been blocked by the Sudanese government, and these women access the groups through a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection. In this light, a pattern emerges. In many authoritarian countries, social media is both the nexus through which protests and reactionary events are organized, and also the first internet or communications services to be axed by a government in fear of a larger popular uprising. Given that women’s rights are human rights, the parallels should be obvious. However, the same gendered roadblocks that push women away from tech can create a profound weakness for privacy and security of women everywhere, while depriving them of an indispensable tool.

Neither is this a layman’s sexist assumption – women use the internet more than men, but are less likely to use internet security tools, preferring instead to simply refrain from posting personal information or more tightly controlling their online friend groups. Technology has traditionally been seen as a “boy’s club,” and there are plenty of barriers, both immediate and systematic, for women to overcome, and this is likely partially why women tend to disproportionately shy away from more technologically sophisticated methods of protecting themselves. Hopefully, this will change as culture shifts towards a more egalitarian gender balance, but until then, women can remain vulnerable.

Even famous or powerful women can be just as, if not more vulnerable, than those of lower socioeconomic status when it comes to online privacy. An infamous hack in 2014 exposed thousands of celebrities’ personal photos stored on iCloud, many of an explicit nature. Overnight the privacy of dozens, if not hundreds of women was violated with very little effort. While this act may not appear overtly violent, the kind of psychological damage and irreparable spread of personally identifiable information involved certainly qualifies it as such. And yet, a ‘hack’ it was not: victims were targets of a phishing attack, where a seemingly innocent email encourages the victim to clink on a dangerous link and expose themselves to malicious code that can be used to steal their data – the same kind of attack used to target Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2016. According to Apple engineers, the attack could have been prevented through the use of fairly simple two-factor authentication.

The aim here is not to blame the victims – far from it. There are sophisticated and fundamentally important tools in the world of internet security that can not only help protect women from violations of privacy and security, but can be used proactively to gain ground in the fight for the rights to safety, equality, and dignity. There are plenty of ways to find out more about the importance of tools like VPNs, identity verification and data encryption, the important thing is to spread awareness and encourage people to make use of it. More equal access to the internet means more power and self-determination for women, especially in developing countries.

Rising Interest in Electric Vehicles Goes Global

image.png

When it comes to automotives, the one certainty is that there are so many variables, differences, that each and every experience with a different car is strikingly unique and yet overwhelmingly familiar. It is, in many ways, the ultimate paradox. Being behind the wheel of V8 supercars, for example, is a different experience than driving a Hyundai Getz. And while the two experiences differ individually, they are somehow familiar in comparison to one another. Now, thanks to technological advancement and rapid digitalisation, we are seeing the beginnings of what is going to be known as the electric revolution in automotives. The automotive industry has experienced its fair share of transitions over time, but the introduction of electric models to the roads is perhaps its most bold transition ever. But why?

The vision

The automotive industry is one of the most important in all the world. Quite simply, cars have become our most popular and familiar mode of transport. While the concept for the modern car was crafted from the invention of the wheel, it has ballooned to become far more than a single wheel. These days, cars are four wheels that carry multiple tones of metal and machinery. And now, again, the concept is ballooning to move into its next natural stage of progression. That stage is the electric vehicle. The electric vehicle is still a relatively new concept to the public, but it has been in development for years now. And now, we are seeing the first fleets of electric vehicles finding their way to the streets, beginning the tidal change to electric vehicles, and away from cars run on fossil fuels.

The pioneers

The concept of electric vehicles is exhilarating in itself, but the pioneers bringing the concept to exciting life are something else altogether. Car manufacturers like Tesla are reimagining what it means to drive a car, and they are bringing that imagination to life. And that emerging vision is something that is gaining more and more attention as the days carry on. In 2017 alone, for example, nearly 200,000 electric vehicles were sold in the United States alone. This is an incredible mark-up from the year before, when the interest in electric vehicles was low key, mildly curious at best. The advantages of electric vehicles are numerous, but the two biggest shifts in mindset and approach are economic and environmental shift.

The future

The facts are simple. Traditional cars run on fossil fuels, thus causing substantial negative impact on the environment. Additionally, obtaining the fuel in the first place is a costly process, which leads to higher costs for individuals as they fill up their tanks at gas stations. Electric vehicles are more cost-efficient (having eliminated the necessity of spending money on gas every time the tank empties), and more environmentally positive (having decimated the need for fossil fuels to run our modes of transport). The future of automotives is definitively electric, and the models that companies like Tesla are testing now are just the beginning of a very long and healthy approach to automotives.

Seo a Leading Modern Marketing Strategy

vbg6y.jpg

The modern business world is positively brimming with digital marketing strategies. As the rest of the world continues to barrel towards complete and utter digitalisation, so too do the advertising and marketing strategies used to propel businesses into that very same future. Any business that refuses to acknowledge and make use of digital marketing concepts for the valuable assets they are, puts itself in very real risk of becoming irrelevant – perhaps sooner rather than later. Digital marketing concepts are the glue that holds modern businesses together. While they all have their assets and value points, there are some digital marketing strategies that are significantly more influential and all-around useful than others.

SEO (search engine optimisation) is one such central digital marketing strategy. In short, SEO is essentially the process of procuring visibility of a website or a sole web page online across search engines. Widely referred to as ‘organic’ results, or marketing. As the worldwide web becomes more competitive a space, SEO becomes more crucial of a digital marketing strategy. Even titans of industry are taking on such advice, with companies like BBC jumping on the SEO bandwagon. The value of SEO cannot be overstated, a fact that the world is becoming increasingly more familiar with. So, what are the benefits of SEO in action?

Competing in a competitive landscape

Whether finding one’s footing in the competitive landscape requires seeking the professional advice of an accredited digital marketing company, or taking on the hard yards for oneself, the goal is always the same: to make the industry – and all competitors – aware beyond a shadow of a doubt that this a business that is in it to win it. The power in SEO lies in its ability to drum up increased exposure for businesses through natural marketing techniques. As the landscape becomes ever more competitive, this is nothing but an overwhelming positive – and the worlds of business and marketing know it, now more than ever. 

Establishing a hold on the competition

SEO not only does wonders for strengthening a website or a sole webpage’s standing on various search engines, but in doing that very thing it also subsequently sets an example to be followed by the competition. SEO allows businesses to establish their position, to strengthen it, and to have that position broadcasted to the competition. This effectively creates a virtual reputation for a website or web page without the company behind it having to generate disingenuous results.

Reaching modern audiences

The average consumer today spends more time online than they would like to admit. Specifically, the average modern consumer spends two to four hours a day online. With so much consistent traffic speeding through the virtual landscape that is the internet, it makes perfect sense that digital marketing concepts like that of SEO are having such considerable influence. SEO reaches modern consumers seemingly with ease, as consumers type key words into search engines, and generally browse the first one to three pages of search results before landing on a website. 

How to Ship Fine Art from Singapore to Europe?

nus.jpg

Singapore is a recognized economic hub in Southeast Asia, excelling in commerce, technology, and finance. It is also known for its fast-growing art scene that has exploded in recent years, turning the city-state into a must-visit destination for all fans of high-quality modern and contemporary art. Not only is Singapore home to the Singapore Art Museum dedicated to contemporary visual arts or the National Gallery Singapore that houses the largest public display of modern Southeast Asian art in the world, but it is also home to many international galleries and a wealth of talented artists. Collectors and curators from around the globe come to Singapore to enjoy and acquire paintings, sculptures, and other art pieces that surprise with their variety and originality.

At some point, both sellers and buyers face a question of how to ship fine art from Singapore to Europe, the United States, or elsewhere so that every single piece arrives intact. Here is a comprehensive guide of the most important things to consider when shipping art (and antiques) internationally.

  1. Assistance of a professional fine art shipping company.

The first and most important thing to consider is that you need help from a professional fine art shipping company operating worldwide. Be it a painting, sculpture, or any other artwork that is too valuable or fragile to be shipped by a regular carrier, it is crucial to ensure that it will be handled by people specializing in the transportation of art and antiques. Only professional art shippers with years of experience in the art logistics field can guarantee the safe and secure delivery of the precious cargo to anywhere in the world.

  1. Proper packing with the use of quality materials.

There are lots of packing materials out there, but not all of them are suitable for packing artworks. For example, if you are shipping an unframed painting, you need to use acid-free paper to cover the painted surface. You may also need special corner protectors, painter’s tape for the framed artwork, and a range of other materials depending on what exactly you are shipping. All of these materials should be of the highest quality, including the shipping box that should be new and durable enough to withstand a long-distance move.

  1. Custom crating of the most delicate items.

In case you are shipping a highly valuable, fragile, odd-shaped, or delicate piece of art, consider custom crating of your artwork because soft packing is not enough to protect it in transit properly. Custom wooden crates are built with the dimensions and shipping requirements of each transported item in mind, which ensures the safe and secure delivery to anywhere in the world. So, if you are planning to ship something truly exceptional from Singapore to Europe or elsewhere, a custom crate is a must-have.

  1. Art insurance covering damages and physical loss.

No matter whether you are shipping a valuable artwork for the first time or have already done it before numerous times, you need to purchase an appropriate art insurance coverage. Even if the artwork is properly packed and shipped by a professional art logistics company, the truth is that no one knows what may happen in transit. Unforeseen circumstances can and do occur, turning even a well-organized art shipping process into a disaster. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you protect yourself from any financial loss.

  1. Customs documentation and export controls.

Last but not least thing that every artist, gallerist, or collector should pay their attention to is customs documentation and export controls. Shipping fine art from Singapore to another country may require certain documentation to complete, as well as export permits and certificates. Make sure you know all the nuances of the international transportation of art from Singapore and also import rules of the destination country. Your awareness of customs documentation and procedures is essential if you want your art to reach its destination.

These were only some of the most important things to consider when shipping fine art from Singapore. There are many of them actually, depending on what exactly you are shipping, the destination country, packing requirements, and some other factors. If you feel you cannot handle the art transportation process yourself, then entrust this job to professionals. It is much better than risking the safety of your precious works of art.

Travel Technology Is Revolutionising the Way We Travel

str2_mh_leesanchangi_mh_1-770x470.jpg

Travel is an innovation the world has fallen in love with, and it is not at all difficult to understand why. There is a sense of freedom that comes with travelling the world, and it cannot be denied. Now, in the wake of digitalisation and technological advancement, the way that we travel (much like the rest of the modern world we have come to know and love) has begun to fundamentally evolve, from the inside out. Travel technology is as common today as the technology that powers our mobile phones and the internet in our homes and public spaces. It powers practically every aspect of travel these days, and is becoming more and more instrumental in how we travel.

The convenience of organising travel documents online

Whether you are applying for a Singapore Tourist Visa, booking flights or accommodation, or organising travel insurance, you can do it all online with the countless websites and even apps that allow you to do so. While it is important to ensure that you are trusting the processes to credible companies when you organise travel documents online, for the most part, it is a safe and secure way to organise your travels easily. All it demands of you is a little practice in common sense, and a willingness to dive into the processes of it all.

The efficiency of keeping connected, even when out of reach

Whether it is satellite phones that allow connection from anywhere, portable chargers, tile trackers, or even portable Wifi modems designed for travel, travellers and all their important luggage and gear can stay connected all the time, even (and especially) when they would ordinarily be considered out of reach. In the modern world, there is something particularly exciting about realising that international communication is more within reach than ever, and more widely accessible, at that.

The power of accessibility and communications

Today, there are multiple social media and even tracking applications that are designed to allow travellers to keep in consistent contact with their loved ones while they are travelling the world. Whether it is using WhatsApp or utilising one of the many professional and secure tracking apps out there to keep track of those you love, no matter where you or they are in the world, there is great power in accessibility and communications, and they are fronts that are encouraged and welcomed from every angle in the wake of advancing travel technologies.

The thrill of capturing it all on camera

There is something to be said for the thrill of experiencing the beauty and essence of travel, and there is a certain level of excitement that comes with knowing you can capture it all to relive the experience later. From smart phones to GoPros, and every camera in between, as well as footage-preserving motions like hard drives and Google Photos or Google Drive, capturing the moment has become one of the easiest parts of travel, and it is all thanks to the travel technology that is changing the norm in travel, time and again.

Tesla Continues to Power Forward Electric Automotive Revolution

dims.jpg

The automotive industry is no stranger to innovation and improvisation. Over the years – and especially in recent years – this has been one of the most heavily impacted sectors in all the world, in terms of its own evolution. In recent times, the continuous trend in the automotive industry seems to be slowly but surely evolving movement towards smarter, more environmentally-friendly vehicles. Our ever-evolving awareness surrounding how vehicles impact the environment has resulted in a gradually global call to action. More and more, people want to know the environmental impact of the vehicles on the market.

Wanting to significantly lessen their carbon footprint, but also noting that generally the use of a vehicle is necessary to keep up with one’s busy schedule, choosing vehicles that are designed with environmental impact in mind has become a steadily surging theme. The solution comes in the form of an automotive technology that is changing the game. Of all the automotive technologies to grace and transform the industry, it is the movement towards electrifying the industry that has held the most body, on an ongoing basis. Luxury car manufacturer and modern tech powerhouse Tesla is powering forward one of the boldest technological takeovers in the history of automotives: electric vehicles.

A lesson in braving change

For decades, vehicles have always operated on fossil fuels. This has been the way since engines were first put into vehicles all those years ago, and it is not technically an effort that is necessarily broken…so why is it in need of modernisation? The answer lies in the air – literally. Decades and decades of air pollution building because of the billions of vehicles that operate throughout the world – not to mention the planes in the sky and the boats that soar across the ocean, for that matter – have resulted in the necessity for change, to ensure a healthier future for not just us and the air we breathe, but the rest of Earth’s living species and Earth itself.

First comes electric, then comes autonomous

Tesla introduced electric vehicles a few years ago now, but owing to the fact that the technology was still relatively new, they were quite expensive and were thus unaffordable for most people. However, over time, the technology has become more advanced, and so the company is releasing vehicles in a more affordable price range now, in addition to its original and performance models that still carry the more expensive price tag. In addition to being electric, Tesla is hoping to bring forward a new era in automotives that promotes and even centres around autonomous (i.e. self-driving) vehicles (but that is a story for another day).

The future of electric automotives

The introduction of widespread electric technology in the automotive industry has changed the way the industry functions and thrives, and it continues to do so. And while the electrification of V8 supercars is well off at this point in time, there is a virtual certainty that, as long as the electric vehicle movement continues to flourish and thrive, there will come a time in the not-so-distant future where fully-electric V8 supercars are very much a reality. But, alas, only time will tell (though it does look like a promising future, at this point). 

How to Protect Your Credit Card From Online Threats?

5-Tips-for-Choosing-the-Best-Credit-Card-You-Can-Get-and-Using-It-Wisely.jpg

It is common to see people making transactions online using their debit cards and credit cards. It helps them to place orders for products and services instantly by executing fast money transfers. But most of the people are unaware of threats are hidden behind this technology. 

With the advancements in the technologies, our lifestyle has become quite flexible and comfortable. But at the same time, it created new opportunities for cybercriminals to hamper our bank accounts and other sensitive data. Credit cards are always on high risk as hackers find them most suitable to steal a huge amount from some random bank accounts. Experts advise following some trusted tricks and techniques to protect your credit cards. 

Below we have highlighted a few such methods to ease your online transactions:

 

  • Follow basic credit security tricks:

 

Whenever you receive a new card, prefer to do your signatures on the specific space on the backside of the card. It will protect your card even if it is stolen by some fraudsters. Also, never ever store your PIN at the same place where you prefer to keep the card; otherwise, thieves will gain easy access to your money.

 

  • Don’t share your account number:

 

Cybercriminals are always eager to know your credit card number so that they can perform some malicious activities and hack your financial accounts. Well, in order to prevent such issues, keep your card private. Don’t allow other people to see it in public places. One should not share any information related to the credit card on phone calls and not even answer any email asking for such credentials. Your bank or merchant do not ask you such information, so avoid falling into the trap of fraudsters. 

 

  • Secure your devices:

 

Most of the people these days prefer to make their banking transactions via their smartphone or computer. But if they are not secured, hackers may also gain access to your banking credentials. Make sure you are connected to a secure network before making any such transaction, and your device follows the latest security features.  If the network is not secure, you might need good VPN software to encrypt data and hide your IP. It is also advised to use the latest antivirus to prevent hacker’s attacks and other malicious activities. 

 

  • Manage your passwords:

 

Experts always advise changing credit card passwords from time to time; using the same password for a long time make your card vulnerable to hacker’s attacks. It is good to follow unique combinations of letters, characters, and numbers to create strong passwords and does not share them with anyone. Whether you use your credit card for online transactions or offline, prefer to change the password from time to time. 

 

  • Report lost cards immediately:

 

The moment you release that your credit card is missing, prefer to contact professionals at your bank so that they can block all the transactions on your card. It will help you stay safe from major theft issues. The bank may issue you a new card after blocking the previous one; the chances are that you may have to pay a small fee for issuing a new card.

The Innovations Transforming the Sleep Industry

nusnus

The sleep industry has long been a popular one, even taking its place as one of the most instrumental pillar industries in all the world. It seems that sleep is a hot topic, and regardless of if it is the conversations among the industry debating the best mattresses of 2019, or the reviews and word of mouth reviews that consumers pass on to their friends when they purchase a particularly great or imperfect mattress, or anything else in between, sleep is always a fascination.

More and more, people are finding that new innovations into the industry are breaking free and forming to create a new era in sleep. One of those industries is an innovative look at how sleep affects our productivity.

The growing buzz

It has been known for a long time that sleep is necessary to keep the body functioning, but mainstream awareness and knowledge of exactly why and which parts of the body sleep (or lack thereof) effects, have been relatively low key. But as time has moved on, the awareness has grown, and we are finding ourselves more and more to be interested in the way that sleep affects the body.

Why do we feel drained when we get five or six hours of sleep as opposed to eight? How much sleep must we get to operate at our most productive? Especially lately, there have been many studies and much research into the matter, and it has been consistently found that we operate at our most productive. But what have those studies found?

The statistics

This is not just assumptions and expectations here. Multiple studies and much accompanying research all point to the realization that we are at our most productive when we get enough sleep. This means that we are at our best when we make sure that we have a reliable sleeping pattern, and when our sleeping pattern deviates from this normality, we struggle to maintain the same level of zest as we usually have.

Think of some of the world’s leading minds. Some studies have shown that up to 90% of executives wave up before six in the morning throughout the week, and nearly 50% of self-made millionaires wake up at least three hours before their work is due to begin. These people are brilliant in their fields, because they understand the value of sleep, and they actively work towards ensuring it is a priority.

Sleep is instrumental for our productivity

At the end of the day, there can be no denying that sleep is a crucial contributing factor to our productivity levels and overall level of brain power during the day. Prioritizing sleep is important because if we do not do so, we are limiting the time that we give our brains to rest and replenish. Not having that time can – and often does – prove to put a significant dent in the way that we function and thrive, and at the centre of all that is productivity.

Finance Industry Revolutionised by Technological Impact

Blog-collaboration-930x420.png

In this modern world of rapid digitalisation and technological advancement, it should come as no surprise to anyone that we now live in a reality where technology dominates, and modern life has become easier and more efficient as a result (for the most part, anyway). Practically every aspect of modern life, every industry there is, has been altered by technological impact in one way or another, with many being altered in multiple ways. The way of the modern world is to embrace change wholeheartedly, and the changes that are sending waves around the world are, more and more, technologically empowered. Every aspect of life and corresponding industry has been influenced – and even continues to be influenced – by the rising tides of technological enhancement and revitalisation.

Technological disruption finds the finance industry

This is perhaps never truer than in the case of the finance industry. It is well-known that finance has always been a data-driven industry. This much is certain, without numbers and rhythms the entire financial sector would fall apart. Now, the finance industry is being faced with an incredible wealth of technological transformation, and it is changing everything from the inside out. Finance has always been an industry that has been digitally-driven, but now as technological prowess kicks into high gear in the sector, that is all coming to heel more than ever. From automation of the more tedious and time-consuming efforts in finance, to taking paperwork and financial records to the blockchain, finance is doing it all. But why so?

Finance technology makes the sector more efficient

The technological efforts in the finance industry are making the field more efficient from all angles. Consider the automation takeover, for example. Processes like filling out details, entering passwords, or even paying bills have been automated (as well as the sector from the inside out as well), have been automated, making room for the more demanding aspects of the finance industry to have the adequate attention to detail and time they need. Further, whether an individual is browsing through possible cash loans online, transferring money from one account to the next, or even applying for a new bank account altogether, everything can be done online these days, making the entire finance industry run a lot smoother.

Finance technology makes the field more reliable

At the end of the day, every feat of technology is aimed at making an aspect of life steadier, more reliable. Finance technology works its magic in allowing for this sense of reliability to shine through by working to ensure that technological components are functioning and thriving at their peak. This is achieved through automation, the expansion to the online landscape, blockchain network security, and multiple-point identification to access accounts and apps and get into bank accounts and the like. Technological influence has introduced a new era in reliability in finance, and it is one that is delighting and impressing people around the world time and again. If this is the new form in finance, it is one that is overwhelmingly positive, to say the least (and for the most part).

Cryptocurrency Going Forward into Digital Era

pexels-photo-730569.jpeg

This year, the now globally-renowned concept of cryptocurrency officially turns ten. While cryptocurrency has been around for a little longer than a decade, it was ten years ago that it first became a mainstream sensation. At its core, cryptocurrency is a notion that has introduced a world of innovation and enhancement, but it has not come without its challenges. In this modern world, technological advancement is not a foreign concept, but the decentralisation of currency is still relatively fresh. 

Today, cryptocurrency continues to evolve and expand as a modern innovation. This is a world where we are immersed in and surrounded by rapid digitalisation and technological advancement. We have created this world to be everything that it is, so it makes perfect sense that it is a world that is encouraging and investing in the digitalisation of many of its marking foundations, including (but not limited to) the decentralisation of currency.

Understanding the power of cryptocurrency

Put simply, cryptocurrency refers to the decentralisation of currency. Cryptocurrency is essentially a form of currency trade that takes place entirely over the virtual landscape. This removes the need for third party middlemen (i.e. banks and the like) to have any role in financial transactions. It helps to speed up the process, which is a notion that bank users have been battling with for years now.

The decentralised nature of cryptocurrencies make them a genuine contender for the “future of currency”. It can be overwhelming to understand, and websites like ICO Toplist are thankfully there to help unravel the intricacies of this (still relatively fresh) innovation in the international financial industry.

Why currency is set to decentralise entirely

Cryptocurrency has faced its fair share of trials and tribulations, having only recently begun to emerge from the dark woods. The decentralisation of currency is the future for one simple reason: the modern world is changing. With every passing day, we move steadily more and more towards a digital future. 

Every aspect of modern world is being exceedingly paved with digitalisation and technological proficiency, and the same is – and will continue to – happening in financial currencies and the way we handle them. To keep up with the way of the evolving modern world, currency must adapt. So, cryptocurrency continues to decentralise the financial sector, piece by piece.

Just the beginning for cryptocurrency

Millennials are definitively a driving force in the growing popularity of cryptocurrency. This is a generation that has grown up immersed in and surrounded by technological advancement, and they expect that same convenience and efficiency to be a prominent force in every aspect of their lives. This is especially true in the financial aspect of their lives.

Cryptocurrency has found its footing resting on the shoulders of a generation that are more than up to the task of lifting it to its potential, and helping it to elevate further and higher, on an ongoing basis. This is just the beginning for cryptocurrency, and it is a wild start to what is poised to be an exciting digital revolution.
