On 7th September 2021, the novel law authorizing Bitcoin as a legal tender in El Salvador came into force, completely changing the way digital currencies would be viewed now and in the future. Businesses from supermarkets to hairdressers and even restaurants will now have to accept Bitcoin as it becomes a legal tender in El Salvador. Furthermore, the government bought around 400 coins worth $21 million.
Bitcoin was created in 2008 by Satoshi Nakamoto, a pseudonymous personality. The Bitcoin software was made public in the year 2009, and soon in 2011, new cryptocurrencies began emerging in the market. According to…
Casinos are soon going to help humanity develop fairer markets.
The world of gambling is one that often gets a bad reputation, to such an extent that some banks and even server companies won’t take them on as clients.
This, ironically, becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Gambling establishments can’t gain legitimacy because of their association with shady characters, but they’re associated with shady characters because the normal economy shuns them.
Earlier in the year, there was a previously unheard of phenomenon — normal retail investors were taking on Wall Street…and winning!
It was the 27th of January 2021, and Wall Street hedge funds began to panic. Their shorts (bets that a stock’s price will go down) on the video game company Gamestop, began to lose billions of dollars within the span of an afternoon.
Are you an aspiring crypto entrepreneur, but feeling discouraged by the regulatory hurdles and high taxes you might face? It might be time for a move! We’ve compiled a short list of popular countries for crypto businesses and enthusiasts.

If you have no idea what the terms blockchain, decentralization, or smart contract mean, get caught up on our previous post here, before coming back to learn about DAOs.
You’ve been in the crypto space for a minute and, inevitably, the term ‘DAO’ came up. A simple Google search might have led you to all kinds of DAOs, such as Data Access Object, Diamine Oxidase, or even Taoism.
The DAO we’re discussing today comes from the crypto definition. That is, ‘Decentralized Autonomous Organization.’ If you’ve read our previous post (here), you’ve seen our short and sweet description.
But DAOs are…
Get a handle on the most common crypto terms.
You’ve heard of Bitcoin and thought it had something to do with Elon Musk (it does, kind of).
You’ve heard of DeFi and thought, maybe it’s related to WiFi? (it isn’t).
You tried looking up the meaning of cryptocurrency, and ended up down a rabbit hole of blockchain, decentralization, and stablecoins (what exactly makes a coin stable?)
If you’re interested in the world of crypto and don’t know where to start, rest assured. In this post, we’ll cover some of the most googled and popular crypto terms to catch you up…
Improving the scientific method through blockchain technology.
The scientific method is among the most important developments in history, as it allows ideas to be rigorously tested and vetted before they’re considered fact. Or at least that was the intention.
Many fields of study, especially the humanities and medicine, are suffering from a “replication crisis” wherein reported findings are difficult to reproduce when someone tries to run the same experiment under the same conditions. The suggested reasons are many but they all boil down to this: the incentives of the academics are misaligned towards clickbait instead of science.
The number of…
How DAOs can help improve open source projects like Linux.
One of the first-ever projects online that showed that internet user communities could be collaborative, instead of perpetually antagonistic, was the Linux operating system. Anyone with an idea could contribute to different versions of Linux, and if a change proved to be popular with the community, it was incorporated into subsequent official versions thereof.
This has proven to be an effective model, as 90% of all cloud infrastructure is powered by Linux including supercomputers and cloud providers, while 74% of smartphones in the world are Linux-based.
Yet, there is an…
Funding good ideas and making the world a better place, what’s not to love?
Among the most important aspects for social and economic development in a society is quick and easy access to capital. Without it, ideas are never meaningfully pursued and innovative businesses remain as daydreams.
Yet, the problem is that in the developing world, these funds are completely out of reach. The primary reason is that traditional banking institutions don’t see much worth in providing “microcredit” as the effort involved traditionally overshadows the potential monetary gains. …
