Along with Cardano, Polkadot is among the hottest cryptocurrency projects in the space right now.

Former US President Donald Trump was outspoken in his views, and so too did he voice his opinion on crypto saying he was “not a fan.” But now there’s been a change of guard, and it seems that newly elected President Joe Biden has a more favorable stance towards cryptocurrencies.

In reality, we don’t have much direct evidence to understand his position on crypto, but we can certainly deduct a general direction from his cabinet picks to see what we should expect under the new administration.

Two important Biden’s cabinet picks that may affect crypto

One of the first key economic positions filled by Biden was Treasury Secretary, with…

What is the future of gold?

With MicroStrategy’s Michael Saylor saying Bitcoin will completely replace gold — because it’s better than gold — and in light of JPMorgan’s now widely cited observation that money is flowing out of gold and into Bitcoin, gold’s future might seem bleak.

However, rather than completely displacing gold it is much more likely that as Bitcoin evolves Bitcoin will be Bitcoin — not gold — and will co-exist with gold.

Bitcoin is not gold

If we think about how Bitcoin was described by Satoshi Nakamoto, it is much more in terms of a currency and store of value, rather…

Scalability is one of the crypto industry’s most obvious issues. Difficulty scaling poses an even bigger problem for Ethereum, which is among the most-used blockchain networks.

According to YCharts, daily transactions on Ethereum reached an all-time high in September 2020 at 1.4 million transfers, surpassing its previous record of 1.278 million from January 2018. With the DeFi space booming, this number is expected to increase further, with Ethereum currently processing over 1.3 million transactions (as of February 10).

To enable further growth, the OMG Network (formerly OmiseGo) has introduced a scalability solution for Ethereum, which we will explore in this…

Few would disagree with the observation that Bitcoin’s current bull run is different from previous bull runs. Of course, it’s clear Bitcoin goes through cyclical motions marked by bullish and bearish sentiment, with its all time-highs, reversals and everything in between. However, in contrast to the uncertainty that characterized previous rallies, we are now in the adoption phase.

It therefore begs the question: do we need an exit strategy for Bitcoin or is it better to literally hold on for dear life — and our children’s lives, and our children’s children’s lives? …

Elon Musk, the Tesla and SpaceX chief who has recently become the world’s richest person, has a rather complex yet interesting relationship with Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.

In the past few years, there has been something stirring between Musk and crypto.

While he endorsed digital assets multiple times and greatly impacted Dogecoin and BTC prices with his recent Twitter activity, some had taken things further, claiming the billionaire is perhaps Bitcoin’s anonymous creator Satoshi Nakamoto (shocked face emoji).

Most importantly, on February 8, Tesla announced with an SEC filing that it had bought $1.5 …
