We live in massively complex systems. AI helps us see through much of the noise. In the world of algorithmic trading though, chaos is a lot more intense. Can AI make sense of the chaos and reach the algorithmic trading singularity?

The transition from the traditional auctions to computerized transactions began as early as 1970s. Stock exchanges started transforming to electronic markets as computers that executed trades faster and faster appeared. Computers enabled trading algorithms to access and act on information more quickly than human traders.

A boost to the adoption of algorithmic trading in the financial markets came in…


Making The Influence Of Idling Trillions Work For Funding SDGs

The first UN summit on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) kicks off today in New York. The event also marks a cumulative rise in the SDG funding gap of $10 trillion on its 4th anniversary. The funding gap makes the SDGs almost impossible to achieve by 2030. No sustainability issue can be more serious than that. Is there a solution?

The world may not be unanimous on anything. But when it comes to our own sustainability all voices are in unison.

On September 25, 2015, the 193-Member United Nations General Assembly formally adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. A…


Widely touted as “the Blockchain Island,” Malta took the lead in regulating cryptocurrency. But in the enthusiasm, they seem to miss the basic premise of tokenomics. By totally abolishing tradable “utility tokens” they transformed all exchange-listed tokens into regulated security tokens, thereby excluding all Maltese crypto startups from being exchange-worthy, as exchanges list only the proven utility tokens. There are lessons to be learned from the Malta blunder.

No matter how much decentralization is inherent in blockchain, human intervention will always work to centralize the power by one or the other means. Consensus algorithm is at the heart of such a power play.

A consensus algorithm is a process in computer science used to achieve agreement on a single data value among distributed processes or systems. Consensus algorithms are designed to achieve reliability in a network involving multiple unreliable nodes. Solving that issue — known as the consensus problem — is important in distributed computing and multi-agent systems.

Fault-tolerant technology is a capability of a computer system, electronic…


KYCed Crypto Makes Anonymity, Money Laundering, Tax Evasion Impossible, Why Then Ban & Lose On The Trillion Dollar Blockchain Revolution? Debunking the myth.

All regulatory negativism across the world regarding crypto assets is essentially based on three biggest myths:

Myth-I: Transaction Anonymity

Actually this is the single biggest myth. Even the so called high profiled blockchain / crypto gurus, experts, consultants are laid up with the notion that all crypto transactions are inherently anonymous. On the contrary, except a few especially designed coins, all of the 2,000+ cryptos out there are inherently transparent.

Blockchain ledgers are totally public and transparent to a level…


Blockchain is a technical term that threatens the homogeneity of dictionaries because of lack of a standard definition. We draft a technical definition of Blockchain.

In over a decade of its existence the term Blockchain lacks a standard definition. A definition is “a statement expressing the essential nature of something.” But why is a definition so important? Because definitions enable us to have a common understanding of a word or subject. They allow us all to be on the same page when discussing or reading about an issue.

When a term is scientific and technical, and it isn’t properly defined…


Algorithmic obsolescence is on the horizon, threatening the advanced nations with poverty. We have to decide how we are going to deal with it, before it’s too late. Universal Basic Income (UBI) is one way. But, is it the only way?

Giving away free money to alleviate poverty is not a new concept. Activists in every generation have campaigned for the cause in one or the other way. In his 1967 book — Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community? — Martin Luther King Jr wrote:

The solution to poverty is to abolish…


Sharonomics is a portmanteau blend of “share” & “economics” that introduces a new branch of knowledge. It’s a radical new take on economics.

To share is human, to expect nothing in return is divine. If we think sharing is a uniquely human trait, not to be found in the animal world, we haven’t known enough of the animal spirit. Sharonomics is as much an essence of the animal kingdom as it is ingrained in humanity.

MONEY is a claim on the Central Bank or a commercial bank! Will this change? Why? How and when? — Efi Pylarinou, Daily Fintech

The reason that money has been a claim on the central bank is simply because, the state-of-the-art so far just didn’t provide means to do it any other way. That may not be the case anymore.

Since posting 6 back-to-back articles on “Ideal Money” in the beginning of this year, nothing really came to our notice that provoked another blog on money until Efi Pylarinou’s recent post triggered the motivation.

As much as J P Morgan’s JPM Coin creates the hype around cryptocurrency and stablecoins, it neither addresses nor solves the burgeoning problems that mainstream stablecoins are facing — long time price parity and convertibility.

On valentine’s day J P Morgan announced that they created a JPM coin, which will be pegged to the US Dollar. The move comes less than two years after JPM CEO Jamie Dimon called bitcoin a “fraud.” The announcement spread a frenzy across the crypto industry. Some calling it awesome for blockchain adaption, others warning against the hype. While Yahoo Finance predicted it will turn…
