How the Recent Interest Rate Hike May Affect Cryptocurrencies

After weeks of intense speculation, the U.S. Federal Reserve has increased benchmark interest rates by 0.75% as inflation levels have soared. A statement from the Fed states that high inflation levels, increasing energy and food prices and the Russia-Ukraine war have caused upward pressure on inflation and impacted global economic activity. The most recent interest rate increase, which is the fourth consecutive such hike this year, will most likely increase volatility within the cryptocurrency market. The Fed seems hell-bent on forestalling inflation and has taken an increasingly hawkish stance to ensure inflation remains at 2% over the long term. The…

Three Generations of Blockchain Tech Evolution

Most experts will say that there have been three generations of the web: Web 1.0, Web 2.0 and Web 3.1. The first iteration of the internet is also referred to as the read-only web, the second is the participative social web and the third version of the internet is the “read, write, execute web.” These three generations have been spread out over the past three decades or so since the internet was invented.

California Lawmakers Vote to Allow Political Campaign Donations in Cryptocurrencies

Cryptocurrency has grown increasingly popular in the past decade partly because of its enhanced security, privacy and anonymity. This anonymity is one of the primary reasons California regulators outlawed all political donations in cryptocurrencies in 2018.

After more than three years since the ban on cryptocurrency donations, lawmakers in California have voted to allow political campaign donations in Bitcoin and other digital currencies.
