Cryptocurrency / Blockchain - Education

Recommended Posts

I am starting a new thread where any relevant material in relation to education for Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain shall be posted here so that everything is on one thread and it eliminates the need to keep on starting new threads.

To start things off I am sharing this latest news from Bloomberg.

A couple of weeks ago my wife's niece came from Boston, US and she is in the medical profession.

She was telling me how cryptocurrencies, blockchain, automation / robotics, artificial intelligence was flooding the medical / health care sector and health care start ups in Boston were using (above) to improve their business offerings. 

I have just read the link below which nicely illustrates and supports what she was telling me.

This is very interesting and I am sure this decision was not taken lightly either.

It just shows how the Crypto market is evolving and is becoming part of the future we are yet to see. This is why one must have an open mind and not let historical patterns and historical behaviour blind us to seeing a new vision and future.

India is a market with enormous potential for Cryptocurrencies and Blockchain. I was in India recently and was astonished at the level of knowledge that people in Gujarat have on this subject area compared to people generally in the UK.

The article below shows how serious India is about this area.

I have posted this on another one of my threads but this specific post sits nicely on both threads to catch a larger audience. It is a short two minute video from the World Economic Forum on what is Blockchain?

    • APAC brief - 21 Mar
      Market action proves it again: this market hinges on the Fed: The US Fed has proven itself as the most important game in town for traders. The FOMC met this morning, and lo-and-behold: the dovish Fed has proven more dovish than previously thought; the patient Fed has proven more patient that previously thought. Interest rates have remained on hold, but everyone knew that was to be the case today. It was about the dot-plots, the neutral-rate, the economic projections, and the balance sheet run-off. On all accounts, the Fed has downgraded their views on the outlook. And boy, have markets responded. The S&P500 has proven its major-sensitivity to FOMC policy and whipsawed alongside a fall in US Treasury yields, as traders price-in rate cuts from the Fed in the future.


      The US Dollar sends some asset classes into a tizz: The US Dollar has tumbled across the board consequently, pushing gold prices higher. The Australian Dollar, even for all its current unattractiveness, has burst higher, to be trading back toward the 0.7150 mark. Commodity prices, especially those of thriving industrial metals, have also rallied courtesy of the weaker greenback. Emerging market currencies are collectively stronger, too. This is all coming because traders are more-or-less betting that the Fed is at the end of its hiking cycle, and financial conditions will not be constricted by policy-maker intervention. Relatively cheap money will continue to flow, as yields remain depressed, and allow for the (sometimes wonton) risk-taking conditions that markets have grown used to in the past decade.
