No one knows for sure whether or not the disruptive socio-economic paradigm brought by Blockchain technology and its applications will really take hold in our world. For all that we know, though, those who believe that the recent bear market or crypto winter will be fatal to the success of Blockchain are losing sight of that deeper sense of the paradigm itself, which goes well beyond the speculation over its specific realization. The hope is that Blockchain can trigger more participatory, collaborative, and inclusive mass logics and that it can become a major…

It is amazing to see how much technology has advanced in such a small span. I was a teen during those days of the Internet back when you had to wait what felt like an eternity for the dial-up to connect — only to be kicked off when my mom picked up the phone. While the popping and screeching of getting online and should you ever log on, the 64-bit graphics that awaited you seemed quaint in comparison to the live streaming and e-commerce we have today, the dot-com…

When looking at the blockchain ecosystem over the past few years (2016–2018) some surprising observations can be made. When compared to previous market cycles, which have usually been related to traditional institutional buyers and fear of missing out on parabolic trends, these observations may have some qualitative meaning applied to them.
My general observation is as follows: Bear Cycles occur when institutional investors are held to the same standards as normal market participants. Bull Cycles occur when institutional investors are held to their own standards as market makers.

Software Maintenance is the process of improving and modifying a software product after it has been delivered to the customer. The main purpose of software maintenance is to update software application after they are deployed to correct bugs and flaws, improve performance, and adapt to third-party dependencies such as hardware, other software modules, etc. Modern applications need to be maintained to stay relevant in an ever growing application dominant society where change is rapid and competition can be fierce.

There exists an ecosystem of technological development geared towards translating human-centric value between the physical and the digital realms. Virtual Reality, Blockchain, and Social Media have created the foundations of a relatively new school of thought being explored in many modernized markets around the world.
Some people are referring to this new paradigm as the ‘Metaverse’, others have white labeled the proposed system as a ‘Magicverse’eg: Magic Leap, but the general concept remains the same: How can we track valuable human engagement in digital systems?
I have simplified some of…
Blockchain technology, once the most popular subject of discussion just among IT experts — or, should we say, “nerdy nerds” — has recently become a topic of relatively common debate. The challenge when it comes to Blockchain is this: do you focus on the technical aspects of this innovative, disruptive technology or is it something the business side of organizations will need to lead when bringing Blockchain into mass adoption?
Many traditional media outlets have been dealing with this topic, too often in a superficial and distorted manner, confusing it with the other hot topic of cryptocurrencies and the impressive…

In many startups, entrepreneurs are so eager to establish a project, put together the necessary legal paperwork, or acquire the right talent to back up the idea, that they overlook arguably the most important aspect of the venture: how to effectively attract capital from investors.
No matter how good your idea, if you do not have the right tools to attract investor capital, your project is doomed. This is why fundraising decks are so important.

When I tell my colleagues at work that I come from a non-technical background, yet work in tech they assume I study economics or business, but not something as intangible as rhetoric. My studies in the humanities have brought me lessons in ancient Chinese history, method acting, philosophy, and the power of the oratory. As my professors have helped me understand, rhetoric is rhizomatic — an ever-changing, below the surface, chain of ideas that has no center. The field contains a slew of topics from…

Early-stage blockchain startups often fall prey to the same mistakes as new businesses of all stripes: they fail to devote attention and resources to basic legal and business issues upfront. Yet blockchain and cryptocurrency companies have an issue that tends not to befall businesses breaking into sectors that are not quite as nascent: they don’t have an established playbook.
Cryptocurrency and blockchain firms often find themselves feeling in the dark, looking for guidance on how to navigate often spotty, if not non-existent, securities law governing virtual currencies, lest they run afoul of regulatory…

Blockchain technology is an accounting technology. The fact that something so pedantic could become a hot trend amazes me to no end. However, just because something becomes popular, doesn’t mean that people understand it. What’s more I’ve run across what appears to be a very frightening fact in the blockchain technology world- most developers in the space don’t understand really basic concepts about how blockchain and decentralization work. …
