Rigetti Computing Stock: A Pure-Play on Quantum Computing

There’s been an increased amount of talk lately around what the media has coined “The Great Resignation.” People just don’t want to work anymore because they demand more from their employers. There’s talk about how 40 hours a week is just too much. It’s people of this ilk who are against meritocracies because they want […]

When Blockchain Technology Becomes Too Complicated

Blockchain started out as a solution looking for a problem. When it couldn’t find any problems, it created some of its own. First came ICOs, then NFTs, and then the cult of crypto that believes that there’s only one way but up. Retail investors aren’t the only ones getting fleeced. With crypto came the emergence […]

Securitize: A Complete Platform for Securitization

The blockchain was supposed to democratize access to assets until it didn’t. First came ICOs. This manifestation equated to a guy standing in an empty lot selling tokens you could spend at the store he planned to build there. Once he collected everyone’s money, he moved to Mexico. Then came NFTs. Instead of tokens with […]

Fivetran: Extract, Load, and Transform

There’s nothing worse than being famous and having your tumultuous love life on display for a bunch of shallow muppets to critique. So, have you heard the news? Yesterday, Elon Musk semi-separated with Grimes – that loco-looking tattooed chick that totally wasn’t his type. The key takeaway is that he can now spend an extra […]

Hut 8 Mining Stock: A Risky Play on Crypto Mining

Investors should only invest in what they understand. If you invest in something you don’t fully comprehend, that’s more akin to speculating. Most people dabbling in cryptocurrency haven’t a clue about the intrinsic value of what they’re buying. For evidence of that, look no further than Dogecoin (DOGE), a cryptocurrency that started off as a […]

ForgeRock Stock: A “Never Login Again” Identity Platform

Using a unique set of characters to access something that’s being protected is as old as time. It’s something we’re taught at a very young age, for example, in the fables of Syrian storyteller Hanna Diyab who speaks the magic words “open sesame.” In a world where we’re trying to bring woolly mammoths back to […]

The Real Story Behind Bitcoin in El Salvador

You’d be excused for not knowing much about El Salvador, the smallest country in Central America and the only one without a Caribbean coastline. Surfing is probably the most cited reason why El Salvador is on someone’s travel list, though the country has much more to offer than just breaks. Lately, El Salvador has been […]

Arqit Quantum Stock: An Overvalued Encryption Play

The herd behaves in mysterious ways. Special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) are a great example of how irrational investors can be. First, they were pumping shares when a planned merger was announced, never mind that the merger hadn’t completed yet. When that foolish behavior was called out, the herd then started pumping shares the day […]

Stocks That Hold Bitcoin On Their Balance Sheets

Having an eccentric CEO who thinks we’re living in a simulation and pretends to smoke weed on a podcast isn’t necessarily a bad thing for shareholders. There’s no such thing as bad publicity and all that. As you rock star employees out there know, you can get away with quite a bit when you’re exceptionally […]

Circle Stock: Blockchain-Powered Financial Services

Blockchain as a technology isn’t risky, it’s the products being built on the blockchain that are. Look no further than ICOs and NFTs, two manifestations of blockchain that epitomize greater fool theory. While cryptocurrencies might be deemed risky in much the same manner, they tend to be seen as “less risky” given strong institutional support. […]
