#FutureProof: Why Dorsey backs Musk’s quest to unlock Twitter’s black box
Technology entrepreneurs are rewarded for being able to see what is coming before everyone else does. On this front, Block Inc CEO Jack Dorsey seldom comes up short. Dorsey, who is the brains behind Twitter and Square, was an early investor in Instagram and pushed Twitter to acquire Vine (an American short-form video hosting service) in 2012, years before TikTok took over the world of social media.
#FutureProof: Deglobalisation, a blitz accelerating the dawn of solar Satoshis
In 2003, Tesla’s founders realised that lithium-ion batteries were becoming increasingly powerful and cheap over time. Thanks to the explosion in laptop computers and cell phones, battery costs were falling fast. Soon, thousands of them could be used to power an affordable electric vehicle (EV).
#FutureProof: Bitcoin was made for the exponential age
Throughout history’s major computing paradigms — from the electromechanical calculators of 1890 to today’s semiconductor chips — the computational power that US$1,000 can buy has doubled every two years. Plotted on a standard linear graph, this is a flat, straight line that — towards the end — suddenly explodes upwards in a J-shaped curve.
#FutureProof: The Great Reset is already here
We are the only beings on Earth that use art to represent ideas, information and value. Primitive humans transformed inanimate objects from purely utilitarian tools into mediums of expression. Imbued with aesthetic and social value, collectibles evolved into the first forms of money, laying the foundation for trade and the economy.
#FutureProof: Bitcoin and the battle for the next internet
Bitcoin is on pace to end the year up at least 60%, defying several stomach-churning bouts of volatility. It bears mentioning that in the decade from 2010 to 2020, Bitcoin gained a staggering nine million per cent, making it the best investment of any asset class.
#FutureProof: Defining the DeFi opportunity
Even after quadrupling in value this year, crypto assets make up only a small portion of the total value of all financial assets. The value of all global stocks is US$122 trillion (RM510.5 trillion), according to The Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA), an industry group. With a market cap of just US$3 trillion, can crypto be considered a force to be reckoned with? The answer is yes.
#FutureProof: Mark Zuckerberg, master of the metaverse?
2007 was the year Apple ushered in the era of modern smartphones. The iPhone combined a camera, a gaming console, music, email and more in one single, sleek device. Its success was a coup — and a nightmare for Apple’s rivals.
#FutureProof: What does Elon Musk want?
Elon Musk, the world’s third-richest man, has emerged as a divisive figure among Bitcoin’s most ardent admirers. A mid-May tweetstorm over Bitcoin’s energy consumption sent retail investors scurrying, leading to crypto’s biggest crash since 2020.
#FutureProof: The Bitcoin mystery powering the rise of DeFi
Does the fate of a trillion-dollar digital asset — Bitcoin — hinge on a decade-old mystery? Coinbase, one of the world’s biggest Bitcoin exchanges, seems to think so.
In paperwork filed to the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) last month, it says markets for Bitcoin could “deteriorate” if the identity of Satoshi Nakamoto, the pseudonym of Bitcoin’s inventor, is revealed.
#FutureProof: Bitcoin lessons from Japan
Twenty-one years ago, the Bank of Japan (BoJ) knocked interest rates to zero, hoping to fire up the economy. It was the first time any central bank had adopted such a radical monetary policy. Public debt levels surged to the highest globally, but Japan never made it out of the ranks of low-growth economies. Recently, such fear has re-emerged in certain parts of the world. The concern is that Japan is the “preview movie” for what is going to happen to some other developed economies.
