Every year we are introduced to a new app. A game, a social networking site, a productivity app, some new map, some new personal assistant. There is one big Highlight of the year app that breaks all Ios and Android records. Life is good in the social media, AppStore, Itunes age. Life is a SAGA. (did you sing with me too?, if not then maybe you are too old) Anyway. Life is so good that i seriously doubt if it is real, sometimes. Do you understand the feeling? Yes, you do, everybody does. Digital age is the good one out there.
Yes, the world as a whole is heavily problem ridden. The world is moving too slowly towards progress and too quickly towards self destruction. But, who are we too ration. (except our journalistic duty to out rightly bring people’s attention to the subjects of pain and plunder.)
The digital age has compromised everything. Shopping malls are affected in a big fat nerve wrecking way in most countries through e-commerce and then apps to buy stuff via digital platforms that save time and energy. I love to order my groceries online. Who has that kindatime anymore?
Newspapers are affected, magazines are, social pubs and tea houses are somewhat hit, the social realities are changing because of social media. And then there are movements like the #Metoo movement, #BlackLivesMatter, the Arab spring and #MakingAmericaGreatAgain.
Everything around us is changing. But, the sweetest change of it all is that we have money without having money. Not that bank money that is plain debt for us. Read as: death. Loan sharks or bank sharks, money gets people in way too many problems to take it lightly.
Having money is a problem, not having it is another. Gambling is a problem, debt is problem, not borrowing is problem, not being banked is a problem, not having credit cards or PayPal is a problem. MONEY IS A PROBLEM.
And despite 23809128301 Gazillion Thousand solutions from upscale startups, no body has been able to solve any of this.
But, all of this is changing thanks to technology the mother of us all. Slowly and step by step. But, it is. Virtual currencies have played a big role in it, it has created access for those with no access. It has created jobs and thus money and value for those primarily remote and misfortuned.
Technology has enabled us to have fun in the virtual money notes or coins or tokens, whatever you use. This means that what we can now bring some relief to the world of pain and no money without using any paper money which was thought of the only money ever.
We can use it to buy it all, all retailers and even IKEA is set to come to offer it as a payment solution, Burger King Whoppers can be bought, Australians are buying beer through it, the world is gradually becoming ready to pose a threat to the monopolizing fiat currency with the cryptos we love so much!
Are you ready too?
