De-dollarization will happen with cryptocurrencies

Some politicians and economists around the world are denying the possibility for cryptocurrencies to be used widely and they even believe they will never be legal in their legislation. But they are wrong, cryptocurrencies will transform the financial system and the countries that today are denying this change will one day open their doors to the future. So If you are a leader it will be better to start educating yourself about the possibilities and challenges of cryptocurrencies so you can prepare better to create better legislation. From China banning Bitcoin operations to Russia warning about Crypto ATM’s, the world has been seeing how ignoring the tsunami of change is not an option anymore. However, these countries are also analyzing […]

Embrace cryptocurrencies or pass into oblivion

Cryptocurrencies are going to transform the way we understand the concept of money, cryptocurrencies are going to disrupt the way we understand the value of our goods and services and cryptocurrencies will develop new economies. If a bank or a financial institution don’t embrace them they will miss the greatest opportunity for their reinvention. So you have two options: Keep denying cryptocurrencies or embrace it. At the end your judgement will determine your success. To understand the progress of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and other hundreds of altcoins it is necessary to draw a parallel with other industries and learn some lessons. In Steven M. Gelber book “Horse Trading in the Age of Cars” it is possible to identify […]

The future of work needs the Blockchain

The economists at Stanford believe that in the next decades, the evolution of technology will create as many jobs as it will destroy, which is contrary to what Calum Chace, the author of Pandora’s Brain believes. A lot of experts are falling into the reverse Luddite fallacy, not understanding that this time the Artificial Intelligence revolution is different and will lead to mass unemployment. In either case, more and better jobs or other few and ultra-specialized, the way people work will also be transformed. Undoubtedly the future of work has so many machines and algorithms that will immediately differentiate high paying human jobs from the rest. We have seen how the rise of the freelance economy is the fastest rising trend which is […]

Australia is betting big on blockchain — Part 1

Many countries believe they are legislation innovators, but you can earn that title so easy if you are not in constant review of how new technologies could boost or harm your economy. It is incredible how so many governments around the world just do a small consultation with financial experts (who have crashed the economy with their bubble generator practices), a couple of hackthatons and after few days they reach the conclusion that they need to ban cryptocurrencies and not even consider blockchain for their development. They don’t even try to understand the potential benefits for everyone and don’t bring to the table other parties to discuss such as civil society, technology developers and entrepreneurs. But fortunately they are some […]

The asymmetry in our perception of technological unemployment

I have been believing for a couple of years that Robots and automation will steal millions of jobs. And we are seeing how some companies are even trying to transform themselves into “black factories”. This means to have a couple of humans to manage everything and the rest will be the work of the machines. This process is great for us, because we will stop doing things that are not meant to do by us, but we can delegate to a machine. Specially the ones that are repetitive and require strength. And since many global experts such as Bill Gates, Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk are asking to pay attention to the growth of artificial intelligence we need to discuss […]

Robots should be the populist not you (human)

Until we reach the technological singularity (which according to Raymond Kurzweil will happen in 2040) we have the power to redefine the role of humans in every activity. After watching the successful german film “Look who’s back” (Er ist wieder da) based on the satirical book by Timur Verme discussing the possibility of Adolf Hitler revisiting the world in 2014, a lot of questions struck me during the weekend. The movie has many lessons and I don’t want to spoil you, so if you haven’t watched, check it on Netflix, I will try to be spoiler free in this article. In this satirical film, Hitler goes around the country asking people how do they feel about their lives, imitating his […]

Whose fault is if I’m kicked out of my job due to a robot?

I know, losing the job is always a terrible event in life, even if you hate it still is bad. Your manager just send you a letter (still they exist) telling you that the company decided to lay out you because they are in an automation process. You have been working a couple of years for the company, possible decades. Always on time, being as productive as possible, being as a great worker as people recognize you are. Never cheating on the company and sometimes working your ass off to meet some deadlines. But this news was unexpected, you have heard the news about people losing jobs due to robots, but never crossed your mind that you will be the […]

Never stop dreaming

Since I was a child I have always had the biggest dreams. I remember drawing dinosaurs and creating stories during class. It as all about a group of adventurers discovering new worlds. Our ship transformed into a submarine and allowed us to find new creatures. Growing up, I imagined myself as an electromechanical engineer working with robotics at NASA. When I was finishing my school years, I decided I wanted to be a film director, just like Peter Jackson, capable of creating complex Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) worlds with unforgettable stories. View from the Peace Revolution Meditation Retreat in Thailand Source: Peace Revolution Facebook But my life has turned into a better story. This year I published the Beat the […]
