In a week when the XRP cryptocurrency more than doubled in price on speculation it would be used by a number of Ripple projects, news percolated around a few unrelated big ideas that seem primed to explode (whether we like it or not).
The first big idea on the verge of making a big impact on the cryptocurrency world is crypto custody. With new entrants, including cryptocurrency juggernaut Coinbase getting into the space, the ways in which cryptocurrency owners access their assets are getting increasingly sophisticated. With an estimated $20 billion trapped on the sidelines by investors afraid they’ll get hacked, a rising tide of competition in this space could lead to an explosion of liquidity.
Another form of competition, coming from China, is also simmering on the back burner. In the past month China’s central bank began testing a blockchain platform for small businesses and its supreme court declared that evidence could be stored on a blockchain. But as the world’s most populated nation invests significantly in developing blockchain, the underlying motive seems to be clear: prevent innovators in other nations from wresting away the government’s total financial hegemony.
Regardless of whether China proves an innovative force in blockchain or snuffs out its potential through calculated maneuvering, the whole world stands to gain if these next two big ideas become a reality.
Over the course of the past year a number of anti-global warming projects have made significant headway with both mandatory and voluntary carbon markets powered by blockchains. Highlighted by these efforts are some of the very qualities that made blockchain popular in the early days, including the ability to prevent double spends, increased transparency and the trust that creates in the system. The result could be a network owned by the public that incentivizes corporate behavior to help nurture the environment.
As one batch of innovators is using blockchain to improve corporate behavior, another is targeting media. With more than half of the respondents to a recent Gallup poll saying they believe the media is biased, a number of blockchain efforts have identified the shared, distributed ledger of a blockchain as a way to increase the trust an audience places in the press, and hold reporters publicly accountable when they violate that bond.
On Wednesday, Forbes contributor Dante Disparte summed up such large scale problems being confronted by blockchain innovators in the starkest terms. In an article titled Misfortune And Misery As New Asset Classes the Risk Cooperative founder wrote, “The world’s best hope of reining in the modern era’s four horsemen riding on steeds of climate change, extreme income inequality, pandemic threats and the erosion of institutional trust, largely depends on financial engineering, technological innovation and political will.”

🥊3 Reasons why you don’t tell people what you make at your job.
1. You are overpaid for the value/work you bring to the company.
There are probably people right next to you that do 2 times the work and get paid less than you. If they knew the amount of money you made they would quit.😋
2. You are underpaid and embarrassed to show what you are earning.
You want to make more, hope to make more but right now you don’t have much to show for your efforts. You do most of the work at your job and get the least of the credit.🙄
3. You are hiding in plain sight. 👻
You show up to work, clock in, clock out, and go home. You don’t wish to stand out because you fear added work load. You don’t under perform because you need this job as a safety net so you do just enough not to get fired. 💥💣
In entrepreneurship, most people want to know how much money are you making. How much revenue do you do a month? On a job site it’s taboo to asking someone what they make or to negotiate your paycheck during an interview.
😎In entrepreneurship, home based business their is no negotiations. There is no promise or guaranteed paycheck. You have to show up and perform everyday whether or not you get paid.
It is a scary place to be when you have days where you work hard, and put in long hours and didn’t make a dime.😥
Then there are those days where money show up in your bank account and you’re wondering “where da hell did this come from?” 😊
You are now motivated to push through another week, another month, another year.
👨🏿🎓Entrepreneurship is an adventure, you get to go different places, experience various things.
👨🏫The most important thing you remember is your growth. What have you become while being on the journey.

Nike has released its commercial starring Colin Kaepernick — as well as Serena Williams and LeBron James — after being trashed by Trump
The ad, narrated by Kaepernick, showcases various inspirational sports-related stories, including amateur athletes such as a football-playing homecoming queen and an Ironman participant who lost 120 pounds and recovered from a brain tumor. Professional athletes, including Serena Williams, LeBron James, and the Seattle Seahawks’ Shaquem Griffin (whose left hand was amputated when he was young), are also featured.
Kaepernick is shown only in the closing seconds of the commercial, wearing a turtleneck and a tan coat. The ad concludes with the words “It’s only crazy until you do it. Just do it.”
Today Amazon has officially crossed a 1 trillion dollar valuation, making it the second public company in history to reach this monumental target.
This comes just weeks after Apple hit the same milestone.The valuation however was short lived, Amazon needs a stock price of $2,050.27 to be valued at 1 trillion – which they reached earlier today but it later dropped back to $2,025.
The stock will fluctuate between 990 billion – 1 trillion over the next few hours and days – but should definitely stabilise and settle above the 1 trillion dollar mark.
How can you benefit from this as a seller?
It’s probably a good idea as an Amazon seller to also invest and own some Amazon stock – so that you’re efficiently positioned to benefit from both your own growth and that of the overall platform.
There’s serious returns available here.
Amazon first went public at $18 a share in 1997.
That’s a 113x growth since then.
But don’t think it’s too late to get in on the action – the returns this year alone have been 75%.
As Amazon continues to grow and take over the world – this means more customers to sell your products to, more international marketplaces to expand to and faster rates of profit as future trends like voice search and drone deliveries make online shopping that much more prevalent.
Wall Street has grown very enthusiastic about Amazon’s non-retail businesses, the Associated Press reports. Amazon Web Services provides cloud computing services to companies and government, and its advertising division makes billions by selling ads to companies that want their products to show up when shoppers search on the site.
Other big companies — including industrial giants that have been around for more than a century, such as Boeing (market cap $207 billion), 3M ($119 billion) and General Motors ($55 billion) — are worth far less than the high-flying tech companies because their prospects for earnings growth are nowhere near as strong. Market watchers have been expecting both Amazon and Apple to eventually have valuations topping $1 trillion.
Amazon shareholders have already had a extraordinarily good year. The company’s stock has surged more than 70 percent since January, outperforming Apple, which has gained more than 30 percent. During that same period, the broad market benchmark S&P 500 rose 8 percent.
