- Cannabis – a high for the economy?Economies around the globe are suffering due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Governments in all nations will be looking for new sources of revenue to provide jobs to millions of people who find themselves out of work and to replenish diminishing budgets. With this in mind, a potential source of revenue and jobs could be provided through the legalisation of marijuana.
- The Rise of Decentralized Finance (DeFi) in CryptoEthereum, which is currently the second largest cryptocurrency in the world by market capitalization, distinguishes itself in providing one of the world’s first Turing Complete protocols, meaning programmers can use the Ethereum programming language to build their own Ethereum “Tokens” that can be swapped to and from Ethereum and are complete cryptocurrencies in their own right, which is a feature previously impossible on cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin.
