There’s a growing consensus — which, notably, includes the billionaire hedge fund manager Michael Novogratz — that the market prices of both Bitcoin and Ethereum have reached their peak. In other words, they can only head in one direction, and that’s down.

But I disagree.

In fact, I believe that Bitcoin, Ethereum, and other leading cryptocurrencies have a long way to go before they approach peak price, and for one simple reason: demand from sovereign wealth funds.

Take, for example, Norway’s sovereign wealth fund. Since falling oil revenues have been hurting the economy for a while now, Norway has, effectively…

In 1906, Sir Francis Galton (a cousin to Charles Darwin) asked 800 people at a country fair in England to guess the weight of a cow. A lot of people guessed way too high or way too low, but when Galton averaged the guesses out, he found that the crowd as a whole was spot-on: the mean of all the guesses was 1197 pounds, the exact weight of the cow.

Thus began the field of collective intelligence, or the study of the wisdom of crowds. The fact that crowds…

Get the Skinny on Digital Currency

Everyone is talking about digital currency. With bitcoin up 232% and Ethereum up 1500% from last year, it’s no wonder cyptocurrencies are all the rage. There are currently more than 900 different tokens and crypto assets on the market with a new ICO launching almost every day. An ICO, or Initial Coin Offering, is a means of raising funds using digital rather than fiat money. ICOs are a great way for emerging blockchain companies to raise enough funds to continue to develop their products…

Alienation to Sustainability to Profitability

Rapid technological acceleration has created a small world where people can interact internationally nearly instantaneously. Some suggest that connection via the digital sphere creates an illusion of interconnection and, instead, causes distance and a lack of empathy. On the other hand, many people feel a thoughtful and empathetic connection to those they interact with digitally. Perhaps this is due to what avant-garde playwright Bertolt Brecht called the alienation effect (or distancing effect) in his drama. In Brecht’s plays, he made certain the audience never felt that his…


Blockchain Tech Emboldens Creators

Though grasping the vastness of the universe may reveal humanity’s insignificance, human creative capacity remains quite significant. Additionally, this creative capacity can be amplified by building constructive institutions and technologies. Human beings have the unique ability to imagine a concept in the mind, and then produce that idea. This is the point where creativity becomes invention, and this is a tremendous power that comes with responsibility. The technological rate of acceleration is forcing humanity to reconsider that responsibility, as it is challenging antiquated ideas and established institutions. …

Purists with esoteric tastes often pine for the time before their fringe interest went mainstream. Today’s punk rockers cringe at appropriated, heavily engineered guitar riffs in popular music while they dream they were around — at the very beginning — wildly bopping to the beat as the New York Dolls really rocked. Surrealist poets scribbling away at their writing desks today wish they had been by Andre Breton’s side as he wrote The Surrealist Manifesto, urging him to conceive an alternative vision of reality. Many surfers ride at night now for some…
