Cryptocurrencies Prove Central Bank Models Are Obsolete, Says Professor

A Spanish professor and economist stated that cryptocurrencies have brought out the “obsolescence” of central banks, although their capitalization is still “very insignificant.”

Crypto Is Not Only About the ‘Speculative Noise’

Pablo Agnese, an economics professor and lecturer in the Department of Economic and Business Organization at the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya in Barcelona (UIC Barcelona), told Europa Press in an interview that young people could lead cryptocurrencies to even stronger mainstream adoption.

The academic believes that young people’s flexibility in terms of adopting new technologies, including blockchain, makes them more open to understanding what the world of crypto is about, “beyond the speculative noise.”

On the “obsolescence of central banks,” Agnese says that, together with central banking, it has managed to form a “powerful legal monopoly” that cryptocurrencies have called into question. Hence, he believes that both are incompatible and gives more details about it:

Banking represents centralization, clientelism,

How Business Coach Rashid Mubashir Overcome Poverty to Help Others Create Seven-Figure Ventures

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA / ACCESSWIRE / December 4, 2020 / Business coach Rashid Mubashir overcame poverty to reach his goals and is now turning over a six-figure business devoting himself to empowering others to achieve theirs.

The award-winning entrepreneur arrived in Australia at 18-years-old alone with just $1000 in his pocket, which he had borrowed from his family in his native Pakistan. Sydney was a massive cultural and social change from the simple home he lived in with his family of four close to the slums with little electricity, food, or water.

Mr. Mubashir lacked direction and support, quickly spiraling into depression which saw him to the edge of nearly taking his life in 2014.

“I will forever be grateful to have been in that place,” the entrepreneur said. The deep low he felt put him on a path to realising he wanted more from life.

With little money and big

💡 Listen to the people you disagree with the most

Here is my proposed solution, to be applied one conversation at a time: When confronted with a different view, try to find something you can agree on. You don’t have to change your views.

Some COVID-19 traveling nurses are making $8,000 a week

DENVER — In March, Claire Tripeny was watching her dream job fall apart. She’d been working as an intensive care nurse at St. Anthony Hospital in Lakewood, Colo., and loved it, despite the mediocre pay typical for the region.

But when COVID-19 hit, that calculation changed.

She remembers her employers telling her and her colleagues to “suck it up” as they struggled to care for six patients each and patched their protective gear with tape until it fully fell apart. The $800 or so a week she took home no longer felt worth it.

“I was not sleeping and having the most anxiety in my life,” Tripeny said. “I’m like, ‘I’m gonna go where my skills are needed and I can be guaranteed that I have the protection I need.’ ”

In April, she packed her bags for a two-month contract in then-COVID-19 hot spot New Jersey, as part of
